Charles Tyler EnsembleCharles Tyler Ensemble ... CD
ESP (Germany), 1966. Used ... $5.99
One of the best ESP sessions from the mid 60s – and a startling album of avant tracks from Charles Tyler and his group that included Henry Grimes, Charles Moffet, Joe Friedman, and a young Ronald Jackson. Moffet plays vibes on the session, and combined with Friedman's cello and Grimes' bass, the overall sound is extremely dark and compelling – made even more so by Tyler's edgey work on alto sax. All told, the album's probably the greatest that Tyler ever recorded, and features a soulfulness that didn't always emerge on ESP sessions. Titles include "Lacy's Out East", "Three Spirits", "Black Mysticism", and "Strange Uhuru". CD

VariousNigeria Afrobeat Special – The New Explosive Sound In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
An explosive entry in Soundway's impeccable Nigeria Special series of rare Afrobeat – digging deep for for material that's largely been lost for years and years – many recorded in the wake of the Fela revolution and all of it exciting and essential! Of all the stellar tracks on the set – which features numbers by Orlando Julius, Segun Bucknor, Saxon Lee and more – the lead off track may be the most revelatory. It's the original 1971 Fela recording of "Who're You" – which was eventually re-recorded at Abbey Road for his London Scene LP – insistent, funky and a amazing from the first sax & drum burst. The whole things outstanding, though, with numbers recorded for Decca, Phillips, EMI, Polydor in 1970s Nigeria. Incredible stuff, and the Soundway presentation is top notch as always! 11 tracks on the CD version: "Who Are You" (original 45 version) by Fela Ransome Kuti & The Africa 70, "We Dy Find Money" by Eric Showboy Akaeze & His Royal Ericos, "Enwan" by The Anansa Professionals, "Mind Your Business" by Saxon Lee & The Shadows International, "Afro-Blues" by Orlando Julius & His Afro-Sounders, "Ariwo Yaa" by Bob Ohiri And His Uhuru Sounds, "Ole" by Black Santiagos and more.

✨✧ VariousKing Jammy's Roots Reality & Sleng Teng (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
17 North Parade, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
Crucial sounds from King Jammy – prime material from that time when his production style was really helping to open up the sound of Kingston! The evolution of dub is definitely at play in the tracks here, but the music is also much more upfront, too – as the Jammy style is very cohesive, and really keeps a strong focus on the righteous lyrics for the vocal numbers – or important musical elements on the instrumental cuts. There's some nice electronic bits – those trademark sounds that are almost a Space Invader approach – mixed with warmer, soulful touches that definitely keep things real throughout! Titles include "Bad Girl" by Black Uhuru with Scorcher & Nicodemus, "Engineer Affair" by Errol Scorcher, "Selassie On His White Horse" by John Steele, "African Love/Yogi Bear" by Black Uhuru & Prince Hammer, "Where You Gonna Run" by The Fantells, "Jah Created The World" by Hortense Ellis, "Love Tickles Like Magic" by Junior Delgado, "Zambia" by Jammy's & King Tubby, and "The Lord Is My Shepherd" by Dennis Brown. CD version is great – 2CDs with 40 tracks in all – plus a bonus DVD that features the film "King At The Controls", plus bonus material too! CD
