✨✧ PRO (People Rock Outfit)Blacky Joe (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
EMI/Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Konono No 1Konono No 1 Meets Batida (with download) ... LP
Crammed (Belgium), 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
Two powers of the contemporary global scene – coming together in a really amazing way! Percussionist Batida joins the amazing Konono No 1 – adding in some extra rhythms, both live and programmed, to their stunning mix of electrified percussion, likembe, and other instruments – all with a vibe that's every bit as compelling as the group's previous albums! In fact, the whole thing may be the best thing that ever happened to Batida – as he works more like a member of the group, although he also produced the set – and really lets Konono take the lead with their righteous cascade of sounds! There's a bit of vocals on the set, but most tracks are instrumental – and titles include "Bom Dia", "Yambadi Mama", "Tokolanda", "Kuna America", "Um Nzonzing", and "Nlele Kausimbiko". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAkwaba Abidjan – Afrofunk In 1970s Ivory Coast ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99
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.

✨✧ Jessie Mae HemphillJessie Mae Hemphill ... LP
Mississippi, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!)
