Brother ResistanceTonite Is De Night/Rapso Space Dub/Crucial Decision (92 version)/Nation Time ... 12-inch
Cree (Germany), Late 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
Great grooves from Brother Reistance – tracks that are aimed at the dancefloor, but which also have a strong social message too! "Tonite Is De Night" is a cool call to action, set to a rhythm with tight tropical touches – and "Crucial Decision" is presented here in the 1992 version, with skittish rhythms topped with a nice steel drum keyboard part! "Rapso Space Dub" is unreleased, and a nicely spooky sort of groove – and "Nation Time" is a great late take on the tropical disco mode! (Soul, Global Grooves) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Lancelot LayneBlow Way ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 39.99
The first-ever collection we've seen to focus on the mighty talents of Lancelot Layne – an important talent on the Trinidad scene of the 70s – and an artist who really helped forge a unique hybrid of soul at the time! The music here isn't the usual Caribbean club groove – although Layne was a big inspiration on those later sounds – and instead, the music weaves together elements of older island styles, hipper 70s jazz and funk inflections, and some of the pride and power that were burning bright during this important generation of soul music. A number of cuts have very cool percussion – which creates an earthier undercurrent than you might expect – and we can honestly say that there's no easy comparisons we can make with this music, given its unique approach! Titles include "Bringin Off", "Kaiso For Mout Band", "Song For Music", "Carnival Drum Song", "Afro Dadian", "Ubawa", "In A Man's Life", "Chant", "Get Off The Radio", and "Free South Africa". 30 tracks in all!

Andre Tanker FiveAfro Blossom West (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cree (Germany), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A jazzy combo from the Caribbean – led by a singer who also plays some really wonderful vibes! The rhythms are strong, with a definite dose of calypso in the mix – but the overall sound is much more in the jazz side of the spectrum, thanks to fluidly melodic sounds from Andre Tanker on vibes! Tanker also sings a bit too – but he's open to Latin modes and soul jazz styles, which makes him sound a lot different than anything you might expect from a late 60s album recorded in Trinidad! In fact, a few of these tunes even hit a boogaloo groove – which is perfect for the vibes – and others maybe echo some of the groovier Verve records modes of the time. Titles include "Party In The City", "Lena", "Swahili", "Ho Ba La La", "Homburg", "Do Me So La So So", and "Old Lady Walk A Mile". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTropical Trips Vol 1 – Life Is Better In The Tropics ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99 9.99
Tropical club in many flavors – all pulled from the usually-expensive set of reissues done by the Cree Records label – presented here in a very nicely-priced package! Given that most Cree reissues are on 12" singles that push the $20 mark, the 16 tracks within come at a very big bargain – and the whole thing's a great introduction to the special world that's often documented by the label's tropical reissues – rare cuts from a time when the sounds of the New York dancefloors were filtering down to the West Indies – and when things were also changing a bit up north, due to a new wave of immigration to the US. Titles include "Umbaway" by Lancelot Layne, Lena" by The Andre Tanker Five, "Trinidad" by Papa Music, "Wajang Woman (Frankie Francis sofrito edit)" by Embryo, "Can't Stop Dancing" by Michael Boothman, & Kysofusion Band, "Remember Mama" by Sugar Minott, "Tabu" by Michael Boothman & Family Tree, "South African Reggae" by Cedric Brooks, "Rub A Dub Soka" by Merchant & The Network Riddum Band, and "Party Time" by Cinnamon Suns.

✨✧ VariousTropical Tricks EP ... 12-inch
Cree (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Rare Caribbean grooves, remixed with just a slight dose of contemporary elements – yet still sounding very much like the warm originals that the Cree label has been uncovering over the years! The choice of mixers is great – and most tracks are slightly picked up in groove, but not too much – with a strong sensitivity to the best elements that make the originals shine, expanded out just a bit more. Titles include "Music Makes The World Go Round (Al Kent edit)" by Hamilton Brothers, "I Believe (Waxist edit)" by Zodiac featuring Denyse Plummer, "Beat The Drum (Keshav's jus now rework)" by Mansa Musa, and "All Nite Tonight (Nomad's reel to realness mix)" by Barbara Hernandez. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ojo BalingoAfrotunes – Best of Juju Vol 2 – Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo ... CD
Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Excellent sounds from Ojo Balingo – a Nigerian juju artist from the same stretch as King Sunny Ade – but one whose music is much more obscure to audiences on this side of the Atlantic! Balingo's group here has the loose, spontaneous vibe that characterizes juju at its best – this real sense of jamming, especially in the criss-crossing of the percussion, which is tremendous throughout – a real driving force of the music, and exploding with all these melodic elements as much as rhythmic ones – so much so, that the talking between the drums speaks volumes, even before the vocals come into the mix. The whole thing's a masterpiece of creative percussion, mixed with other elements that creep in a bit more strongly on side two – and titles include "Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo", "Ayo Igbala Ni Mofe, "Igbe Eiye Oloburo", "Jide Babaloa & Bayo Babalola", and "Ile Aiye Ile Ese Ile Aiye Ogun".

Julie CokerLife In The Limelight – Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976 to 1981 ... CD
Kalita, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Classic tracks from the short-but-strong music career of Julie Coker – a huge figure in Nigerian culture, both for her work onscreen and off! Coker recorded a handful of records at the end of the 70s – right at the height of her career – and the tracks here are from two of the three from the time – the albums Tomorrow and Ere Yon. Ere Yon is a very compelling take on more traditional modes of the time – a bit highlife, but often nicely stripped-down, and with these occasional keyboard parts that give a cool spacey sound to the whole thing – a mode that works perfectly with Coker's strong vocal range. The music on Tomorrow is from a few years later, and has a warmer, clubbier vibe – a bit more of the Lagos disco promised in the title, but again handled in a way that's still very unique. Titles include "Iyo Re", "Elelemi", "Ere Yon", "Re Hese", "It's All For You", "Sogio", and "Gossiper Scandal Monger". CD

Geraldo PinoAfro Soco Soul Live ... CD
Everland (Austria), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A blistering batch of live tracks from the amazing Geraldo Pino – super-tight Afro Funk with a groove to rival some of James Brown's funkiest work! Pino clearly takes a lot of cues from The Godfather in the way he leads the band – working with an MC who starts the set and calls him to the stage, then belting out the lyrics in a voice that may not be as screechingly soulful as James, but which has the same sort of punch and hard-bitten political undercurrent! The instrumentation includes lots of heavy percussion, fast-riffing guitar, and this great electric piano that's thin, but very cool – almost giving a spacey sound to the heavier funk at the bottom of the tunes! Tracks include "Blackman Was Born To Be Free", "Man Pass Man, Iron De Cut Iron", "Right In The Centre", "On The Spot", "Woman Experience", and "Afro Soco Soul Live". CD
