✨✧ PRO (People Rock Outfit)Blacky Joe (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
EMI/Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The People Rock Outfit really knock it out of the park with this dark-edged classic from the 70s – one of the heaviest albums we've heard from the Nigerian scene at the time, and a record that's almost got more of a South African spirit overall! These guys effortlessly mix together funk and psych – the former in these stark, forward-moving rhythnm that are mighty nice – the latter in these long-spun guitar lines that have a nice fuzzy vibe, as the solos cascade effortlessly from the hands of the guitarist! Vocals are all in English – sometimes with a slow-stepping approach that's very moody, more often in a lively spirit to match the rhythms – and the record also features a bit of guest work on moog and Hammond, which really adds a lot to the sound. Titles include "Blacky Joe", "Mary Jane", "Faded Jeans", "Freedom", "Movement", "Tell Me", "Midnight Woman", and "Looking Round". LP, Vinyl record album

Jessie Mae HemphillJessie Mae Hemphill ... LP
Mississippi, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent work from Jesse Mae Hemphill – a female blues talent who lay undiscovered for many years in Mississippi, then burst forth late in her life with a fantastic run of sounds like this! Most of the tunes are relatively spare – with Jessie Mae playing electric guitar in these hypnotic passages that cascade and revolve around one another – while she sings in this way that's almost harmonic in relation to her instrument. The approach is a bit like Howlin Wolf, but made very much Hemphill's own on these tracks – and titles include "Standing In My Doorway Crying", "Take Me Home With You Baby", "Crawdad Hole", "Bullyin Well", "Brokenhearted Blues", "Go Back To Your Used To Be", "Shake It Baby", and "Tell Me You Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a nice booklet too!)

VariousAkwaba Abidjan – Afrofunk In 1970s Ivory Coast ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99
A fantastic collection of funk from the 70s scene in Ivory Coast – music that's every bit as heavy on jazz-based solos as it is on the grooves – with some especially strong sax lines that really give the tunes a lot of soul! The music here is nice and raw, and often very stripped-down in terms of presentation and production – never too polished or commercial, nor purposely tripped-out – and instead the vein of Afro Funk that's fantastically put-together right from the start, and which has plenty of appeal to fans of American funk from the same time! Lots of these artists clearly borrow the same James Brown influence that Nigerian funk work had in the early 70s – but they also work with very interesting and unique sounds throughout – especially on the reeds and keyboards, which cascade with lots of fresh phrasings and frenetic energy. There are vocals on some cuts, but the instrumentation is always what keeps things strong – and titles include "Tumba Safari" by Afro Train, "Chicken" by De Frank Jr, "Tink Tank" by Afro Soul System, "Issa" by Les Nidrou, "Secret Populaire" by Sewa Jacintho, "Ayee Menko" by De Frank Jr, "Femme D'Ajourd'hui (part 2)" by Moussa Doumbia, "Assalam Aleikoum" by Francis Kingsley, "Dankasa" by De Frank Jr, and "Mariage" by Moussa Doumbia.

✨✧ VariousAlex Attias Presents Lilly Good Party – A Selection Of Really Really Good Grooves ... LP
BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Alex Attias has always given us some really creative sounds in his own music – so we've got some mighty high expectations when he brings together a selection of tracks by other artists for BBE! Fortunately, the record not only lives up to those expectations, but does them one better – by opening us up to some overlooked contemporary cuts that all have the cosmic touches of Attias' work on the London scene – then interweaving them with some older tracks that resonate even more strongly in the territory! There's some wonderful work from recent years that show just how far the best side of the broken beat legacy has evolved – and other older cuts have a cosmic vibe that's plenty righteous too, with some great jazzy currents that really deepen the vibe of the collection. Titles include "Midnight Magic" by Cro Magnon with Roy Ayers, "My Dream Came True" by Root Soul, "Cascade" by Tatham Mensah Lord & Ranks, "Do The Dance" by Grooveman Spot, "Over & Over" by Material with Nona Hendryx, "Curiosity (Zanzibar rmx)" by Nicole Willis, and "It's You (disco alert mix)" by Sunaga T Experience.
