William OnyeaborAtomic Bomb ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
An incredible legacy in music! For years, the music of William Onyeabar has been the stuff of legend, but only accessible to a few who could get their hands on scarce original pressings – but that lack has really been corrected by Luaka Bop's revival of Onyeabar's magical music, complete with all the original artwork! William's got a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a weird mix of African rhythms and contemporary 70s keyboards – served up in a hypnotic blend of boogie and underground club styles borrowed from the US, but delivered with an earthy, very personal quality – a sound that's gotten Onyeabar plenty of attention over the years. And while Luaka Bop did a wonderful job on collecting together some of his best tracks for their Who Is William Onyeabor compilation, each record is really something special, and every long track has its own sort of magnetic attraction for the listener! Includes "Beautiful Baby", "Atomic Bomb", "Shame", "I Need You All Life" and "Batter Change Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Space CatsSomething New ... LP
Rejoice/Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Weird and wild work from The Space Cats – a funk group from the clubbier years of the South African scene – but who work here in a lean style that's very much their own! The group's led by a bassist, and has some fantastic basslines right up front in the mix – driven by both drums and percussion, and layered with keyboards that are often very basic and hypnotic – not the electro modes of bigger, tighter acts of the time – but instead often this very thin current of electricity in the middle, sounding equally great on the instrumental and vocal tracks in the set! Most of the tunes are a click or two slower than the usual clubby work of the time, too – which further adds a unique quality – and titles include "Mother Earth", "Your Eyes Are So Sad", "Masambeni", "The Dead Of Night", "Something New", "Mystery", and "Ukhamba". LP, Vinyl record album
