BarrabasBarrabas – Musica Caliente (aka Wild Safari) ... LP
RCA/Sommor (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful work from Barrabas – a hip Spanish group of the 70s who effortlessly blend together elements of funk, rock, and soul – at a level that made them surprisingly big on this side of the Atlantic too! Maybe part of the strength of their fame was that over here, the group were never pictured on the cover – so they fit right in the record racks with other funk records of the time – as they serve up a wild safari of grooves that's almost in a sort of party mode, with the band jamming on congas, organ, and guitars! The vocals trade back nicely between the lead singer and the ensemble in a soulful mode that shows that everyone was paying attention – and the best tracks have a tight groove with choppy guitar and driving conga, almost in an LA Chicano funk mode. Titles include "Woman", "Never In This World", "Wild Safari", and "Chicco". LP, Vinyl record album

BarrabasPower ... LP
RCA, 1973. Sealed ... $14.99
Funky rocking sounds from this hip Spanish group – served up with a bit of a tribal sound that's pretty sweet – and which makes Barrabas a key link between funk, rock, and club sounds in the mid 70s! The bass is pretty thundering, the drums are strong, and there's some cool piano and flute in the mix that give the cuts a bit of a Latin flourish – almost a bit like War or some of the other LA groups of the time who were mixing together Latin and soul elements, but with a few more rockish touches in the vocals. Titles include "The Horse", "Keep On Moving", "You Know", "Casanova", "Mr Money", and "Children". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed! Cover has a company sticker and a cutout notch.)

BarrabasSoltad A Barrabas ... LP
Atco/Sommor (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A mid-70s effort from Barrabas, and a set that still has the group burning along in a really great way – blending elements of soul and funk with a sharp instrumental jamming style that might have been prog in the hands of someone else, but which here keeps things grooving in a really nice way! The pace is picked up a bit, at a level that made these guys rising stars in the clubs in the moment right before disco – and the album includes lots of great cuts – including the funky tracks "Susie Wong" and "Funky Baby", the free soul-ish mellow groover "Lady Love", and the spacey "Fly Away".

Harun Ghulam Barabbas & Alaeddin AdlernestBreath Of The Masters – Smile ... CD
Black Monk (Austria), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
Two players we don't really know at all, but coming together here in a sublime set of reed-based creations – Alaeddin Adlernest on bassoon and Haru Ghulam Barrabas on alto sax – four long tunes that each have some sort of structure, but also balance things nicely with a sense of freedom – a bit like some of the looser that Jimmy Giuffre or Lee Konitz were making during the 60s and 70s! Given the use of bassoon, there's almost some echoes of the Arkestra here – or the sparer moments that the Arkestra might feature on a solo – and Barabbas has some very unusual phrasing on alto sax, too – which comes across wonderfully here next to the less-conventional horn. Really beautiful throughout – with titles that include "Einstein", "Smile", "Al Bab", and "Music Navigation". CD
Also available Breath Of The Masters – Smile ... LP 32.99

VariousBisbi – The Best Of Afro Funky Disco ... LP
Use Vinyl Records (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99 39.99
A really cool mix of cuts – a package that brings together American funk cuts with global touches, European tracks from the post-colonial years, and a few more surprising nuggets from other sources too – all to show the way that African rhythms entered the clubs during the 70s! Many of these numbers are either heavy on percussion, or mix together exotic elements with more familiar soulful production – and there's a nice selection of cuts from the US and overseas, which makes for a few nice surprises along the way. Titles include "Anikano O (1974 version)" by Kongas, "Hollywood Party" by Brooklyn Express, "Spend The Night" by Bob A Rela, "Dance With Your Parno" by Bohannon, "Erotic Soul" by Larry Page, "Invocation" by Tumblack, "Funky Boogie" by John Ozila, "Toque De Cuica" by Airto, "Jam On The Groove" by Ralph MacDonald, "Woman" by Barrabas, "Sultana" by Titanic, "Mangous Ye" by Black Soul, and "Big Noise From Winnetka" by Spaghetti Hero. LP, Vinyl record album
