El RegoEl Rego ... CD
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

✨✧ VariousAbsolute Funk Vol 3 – 20 Funk Rarities 1967 to 1976 ... CD
Body & Soul (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer funk all the way through – presented here with wonderful sound and a set list that includes plenty of unreissued rarities! This volume may well be the best in this already-great series – as its got a totally hip, totally heavy feel – one that goes out of its way to dig up funk tracks that are perfectly put together – and not just tunes that happen to be rare! The vocals on many tracks are as great as the instrumentation – matching the hard drums, scratching guitar, blasting horns, and rolling bass with singers who easily rival the best deep soul talents from the James Brown universe. And as with other volumes, the package is all legit, and presented with great notes on the material – further emphasizing the careful production of the Absolute Funk series! Titles include "Cool Dad" by Ross Carnegie, "When You Git Through Wit It Put It Back" by City Council Ltd, "What It Is (parts 1 & 2)" by Apollis, "Changes" by The Visitors, "Super Sweet Girl Of Mine" by 5 Miles Out, "Is It Funky Enough" by Communicators & Black Experiences Band, "Clique" by Con-Funk-Shun, "Upstairs On Boston Road (parts 1 & 2)" by Sammy Gordon & The Hip-Huggers, "My Mind Set Me Free (parts 1 & 2)" by House Guests, "Crossin Over" by Carl Holmes & The Commanders, and "Tear It Up (parts 1 & 2)" by Billy Wade & The 3rd Degrees.
