ApostlesBlack Is Beautiful (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Tidal Waves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A tight little set from one of the grooviest groups on the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a combo who could play with a familiar mix of fuzz and funk, but also throw in some deeper soul touches on the vocals – in a way that makes the whole album a much richer set than work by some of their contemporaries! Some of the songs are heavy on message – both personal and political – and the rhythms have these complicated basslines that really keep things interesting, and which keep The Apostles from sounding too much like anyone else – almost a cross-cultural take on West African rhythms, on titles that include "I'm Sorry I Made You Cry", "Black Is Beautiful", "Don't Huzzle For Love", "Enyim", "Please Yourself", "Ndi Nkwa", and "Today Is The Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies!)

✨✧ Pat ThomasStage Two (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Mad funky genius from Ghanian singer Pat Thomas – an artist who first rose to fame in the group of Ebo Taylor, and who's maybe even more fantastic here in the spotlight in the lead! The cover of the album maybe looks a bit more like a 60s photograph than the 70s stretch in which it was issued – and Pat's vocals often have an old school deep soul sort of approach too – sometimes mixed with jagged Afro Funk rhythms, other times in more laidback settings that allow him to flower even more as a singer! At points, there's almost some rocksteady organ work in the mix – which just adds to the charm of the record – on titles that include "I Need You Around", "Fishes", "Let Me Feel As I Am", "We're Coming Home", "La La La La La La", and "Let's Think It Over". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Exile OneExile One (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Disques Debs/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start! The sound is lean, stripped-down, and a lot more aimed towards American soul than you'd guess from their Caribbean roots – especially on those tracks where group leader Gordon Henderson really stretches out and shows off both his deep and funky soul chops! There's a few cuts here that have more familiar Caribbean elements, but even those come across with a tighter, rawer sound than most of the group's contemporaries – which makes this debut a real 70s standout all the way through. Titles include "Funky Crookie", "Don't Bite The Hand", "Which One Is Me Home", "Miss Tomorrow", "If You Turn Your Back", and "Where's The World Gettin To". LP, Vinyl record album
