Louvin BrothersFirst Steps – The Early Recordings ... CD
Rural Routes, Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Sublime sounds from the legendary Louvin Brothers – heard here on a collection of tracks recorded before their more famous years at Capitol Records – for labels that include Decca, Apollo, and MGM! Yet even at this early point, the brothers are fantastic – graced with a harmony sound that was both rooted in the hills, and which would become a huge influence on rock and folk generations to come – often just backed by simple guitar and mandolin backings, which usually don't offer the pyrotechnics of contemporaries like Bill Monroe – lest they get in the way of the vocals – yet still have a way of ringing out with a fantastic sort of depth. Titles include "Weapon Of Prayer", "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "The Get Acquainted Waltz", "You'll Be Rewarded Over There", "Robe Of White", "The Sons & Daughters Of God", "Childish Love", and "The Great Atomic Power".

VariousBooniay!! – A Compilation Of West African Funk ... CD
Afrodisiac, 1970s. Used ... $9.99
Afro Funky – and some great rare music! This one's a killer batch of rare funk tracks from 70s Africa – with the feel of Nigeria 70, Club Africa, and some of our best Afro Funk compilations – a bit thin on notes, but with a track list that kicks some serious booty! In fact, we might dare say that this is one of the best-ever sets we've seen of 70s Afro Funk – with 10 numbers that blow past the obvious, taking the groove into some completely heavy territory – hard drums, scratchy guitar, and blasting off-kilter horns on nearly every number. Tracks include "Body & Soul" by William Onyeabor, "This Hustling World" by Gyedu Blay Ambolley, "Susan Sue" by Vis a Vis, "Menyeckse" by Atomic Bomb Zigoto, "Tolambo Funk" by Brigth Engelberts & The BE Movement, "Good Samaritan" by Matata, "Get Together" by Brigth Engelberts & The BE Movement, and "Hot & Jumpy" by George Danquah.

VariousHighlife Time – Nigerian & Ghanian Sounds From The 60s & Early 70s ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A great overview of African grooves in the years before Afro Funk truly exploded – early highlife sounds from Nigeria and Ghana, most of it a fair bit rougher than work in the genre from later decades! The sound here is equally heavy on percussion and guitar – the latter of which still has the famous highlife sing-song approach, but without as much sweetness and polish – instead, often set up here with some rougher edges that scratch along nicely with the rhythms! The package does a great job of pulling together a variety of work to illustrate the range of sounds in this scene – and the 2CD set features a total of 20 tracks that include "Jolosho" by St Augustine, "Trumpet Highlife" by Dr Victor Olaiya & ET Mensah, "Belama" by Opotopo, "Makojo" by Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, "Won Bum" by Opotopo with Fatai Rolling Dollar, "Yellow Sisi" and "Oko" by Rex Lawson & His Rivers Men, "Okino" by Akana Man, "Ikoro Special" by Dan Satch & His Atomic 8, "Joromi" by Sir Victor Uwaifo, "Aasem" by Stan Plange & The Uhuru Dance Band, "Afro Baby" by Professional Seagulls Band, "Ensonta" by Chief Enyang Henshaw, "Pay Me My Money Now" by Rex Lawson, and "Grazing In The Grass" by Stan Plange & The Uhuru Dance Band.

VariousZanzibara 3 – Ujamaa Le Son Des Annees 60 En Tanzanie ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
Zanzibar dance grooves from the nation-building Ujamaa years of the late 60s – all done in a style that's somewhat different and a bit more laidback than work from neighboring scenes at the time! Most of the numbers here build up a base with percussion, bass, and a handful of guitars – all rumbling together in a gently earthy sort of way – never too harsh or too sharp, and often with the guitars ringing alongside each other nicely, as one player steps out with an occasionally more pronounced line. Lyrics also show a strong sense of teamwork – mostly sung by the group together at once, creating more melodic force on top of the rhythms on the bottom. As always with this series, the CD comes with a great set of notes that includes a history of the scene and the artists – and the package features 17 tracks that include "Nipeleke Kwa Baba", "Dada Nihurumie", "Maneno Niliyokwambia", and "Mpenzi Nakukanya" by Nuta jazz Band; "Kaka Umenishinda", "Mpenzi Ya Kijinga", and "Salamu Zako Nimezipata" by Atomic Jazz Band; "Likembe Ya Moro" and "Nimechoka" by Morogoro Jazz Band; and "Usiwaamini Shemeji" and "Shangazi Naomba Taiti" by Jamhuri Jazz Band.

✨✧ Kiyoshi TanakaBritish Rock Live In Japan (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Teichiku/Think (Japan), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Don't think "British rock", think "electric jazz" – as the set features some long, jamming instrumental workouts that are more in a heavy fusion mode overall! The group's a quintet – led by drummer Kiyoshi Tanaka, and featuring organ, guitar, bass, and some very cool electronics too – used in ways that touch up the tunes nicely, and bring out some spacey currents in the music, especially during some of the few mellow moments! These guys are definitely influenced by the more progressive rock sounds of the period, but never feel the temptation to vocalize at all – and titles include "Echoes", "Jimi Hendrix Mad Song", and the long "Trip To West Coast From Britain" – with segments dedicated to Deep Purple, Atomic Rooster, Frank Zappa, Uriah Heep, and the Grateful Dead.

✨✧ VariousBest Of King Gospel ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful selection of work from gospel's "golden age" – the formative late 40s and early 50s years, when the music was first making it onto records in ways that it previously hadn't. At the time, the King label was home to some of the freshest blues and R&B artists of the time, and their position in the market made them a perfect choice to record these gospel artists, especially the small vocal groups – who were styled in a similar fashion to the label's doo wop groups of the time. And in a way, the feel here is almost like doo wop – with mostly male groups, singing in a hard and raw style with a real focus on harmonies. Titles include "Toll The Bell" and "Live So God Can Use You" by Swan Silvertone Singers, "Who Is Your Friend" and "Where Shall I Go" by The Trumpeteers, "Jesus Is All The World To Me" and "Too Close To Heaven" by Cumberland River Singers, "It's A Highway To Heaven" and "Seek & Ye Shall Find" by The Nightingales, "The Atomic Telephone" and "Workin Till The Day Is Done" by The Spirit Of Memphis Quartet, and "In That Great Reunion" and "Going Back To Jesus" by The Four Internes.

Nicola Conte Presents Stefania DipierroNatural ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
Nicola Conte's working here with a great new singer – the lovely Stefania Dipierro, who brings in just the right sort of Brazilian vibe to fit the record's placement on the Far Out label! The style here is maybe a bit more Brazilian than some of Nicola's music on the Schema imprint – but the approach is very similar overall – lots of warm, groovy currents that follow a path from 60s Rio through Italian jazz and soundtrack generations too – served up by an instrumental group led by Conte on guitar, with work from Pietro Lusso on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, Gaetano Partipilo on sax and flute, and Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet! Yet Stefania herself definitely is in the spotlight throughout – singing in this breathy, soulful style that really opens up the tunes – which are a mix of originals written with Conte, and some very well-chosen jazz and Brazilian classics. Titles include a sublime remake of Betty Carter's "Open The Door", plus "Joia", "Que Maravilha", "Vento Bravo", "I Feel The Sun On Me", "Natural", "Ainda Mais Amor", "Within You & I", and "Maracatu Atomico". 14 in all.

Gilberto GilNightingale (UK pressing) ... CD
WEA (UK), 1978. Used ... $4.99
A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles".
