Jagger BotchwayOdze Odze (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 80s. Sealed 2LP ... $16.99
Sweet African funk from Jagger Botchway – a musician with roots in The Barons, Hedzoleh Soundz, and Kelenkye Band – stepping out here on his own in a heady brew of percussion, guitar lines, and horns! Some of the cuts are vocal, some are instrumental – and the mix of melody and rhythm is very unique – almost with Caribbean elements filtered into the more Ghanian styles you'd expect from Jagger – with a brightness in the grooves that fits well with the horn parts in the mix! And this special package doubles the content of the original record – by offering up all the album tracks, then adding in a full album of remixes too – which further emphasize the grit in the grooves. Titles include "Odze Odze", "Take Time", "Obleku", "Chapter 5", "Kake Odzole Oye", "Moko Le Dzen", "Odze Oldze (Africaine 808 rmx)", "Moko Le Dzen (Ruf Dug disco dub)", "Take Time (GRC rmx)", "Odze Odze (Alma Negra rmx)", and "Moko Le Dzen (GRC rmx)".

✨✧ VariousBoogie Breakdown – South African Synth Disco 1980 to 1984 ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 25.98
There's no breakdown to the boogie here – as the album's overflowing with stunning sounds that are right up there with better-known club music from the early 80s – every bit as full of basslines, beats, and keyboards as the best tracks from the American scene of the period, but maybe even more stripped-down and biting overall! As the title announces, the music here is all from South Africa of the late Apartheid years – a time that's usually summed up by music of protest, but which also required some moments of letting off steam – the kind of grooves that are featured in this set! The sound is warmer than you'd expect from the "synth" in the title, too – more like electro funk overall, with a great sense of sharp rhythms and nicely focused vocals – some of which echo older South African modes, but which still often nod more strongly to US dancefloor soul. Titles include "Party" and "Good Vies" by Harari, "Hey Tonight" and "We Keep On Keeping On" by Cannibals, "I Wanna Be Myself" and "Let's Groove Tonight" by Don Laka, "Perfect Love" and "Breakdown" by Neville Nash, "Flash A Flashlight" and "I Just Keep Dancing" by Benjamin Ball, and "You've Got Love" and "Hold Onto Love" by Al Etto.

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Boogie Connection – From Rio To Sao Paulo 1976 to 1983 ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think Brazil only gave the world bossa nova and samba? Think again – because this set is a great example of the nation's rich legacy of soul music – especially the kind of upbeat, hard-grooving styles that still stay strong on today's global dancefloors! The groundbreaking collection is a wonderful batch of rare club, disco, and boogie tracks from the Brazilian scene of the late 70s and early 80s – music that's not just a copycat of American dancefloor styles, but often a unique hybrid of funk and regional Brazilian styles – blended together with top-shelf studio perfection, and served up with loads of jazzy touches in the instrumentation. The grooves here are razor-sharp throughout – and many tracks may well blow away better-known US cuts from the time – and the set does a good job of mixing a few longtime standards with some fresher tunes that really keep things interesting! Titles include "Relax" by Painel De Controle, "Funk Funk La" by Robson Robson, "Nao Va" by Tim Maia, "A Paraibo Nao E Chicago" by Marcos Valle, "Saiba Ser Feliz" by Tarantulas, "Rio Babilonia" by Jorge Ben, "O Amigo De Nova York" by Emilio Santiago, "Expresso Madureira" by Banda Black Rio, "Olhos Coloridos" by Sandra Sa, "Aleluia" by Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti, and "Central Do Brasil" by Cassiano.

✨✧ SJOB MovementFriendship Train ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from SJOB Movement – a 70s group who only cut a handful of records – all of them every bit as righteous and heavy as this one! The group have a perfect fusion of funk, psych, and other cool elements – all served up in a blend that's more straightforwardly soulful than some of their contemporaries, but not averse to trippier sidetracks too – especially when a bit of moogy keyboards come into the mix, and space things out nicely alongside the riffing guitars and tight horns in the groove! The sound is perfect – neither in a too-familiar Fela mode, nor in the too-dark style of some of the group's contemporaries – full of life, but never losing its focus – on cuts that include "Friendship Train", "Love Affair", "Odiaria", "Let's Do It", "What Could It Be", and "Halleluyah".

✨✧ MaterialOne Down ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the bigger efforts from Material – featuring the core trio of Bill Laswell, Martin Bisi, and Michael Beinhorn – plus guest work by Nona Hendryx, Nile Rodgers, Whitney Houston, Archie Shepp, Oliver Lake, and Fred Frith. The mix of jazz and soul talents comes together more nicely than you might think, thanks to Laswell's talents for crossing cultures – and although a few numbers here sound quite dated, overall the album's worth digging out at least for a document of a unique moment. Titles include "Take A Chance", "Memories", "Don't Lose Control", "Let Me Have It All", "Time Out", "Come Down", and "I'm The One'. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBeach Diggin' Vol 4 – Hand Picked By Mambo & Guts ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The fourth fantastic volume in this wonderful series – and maybe the best so far, as the Beach Diggin groove has extended past its familiar boundaries – to pick up rare soulful sounds from points all over the globe! The approach is wonderful – with a focus on slinky cuts that have an equal balance of funk and soul, but often carry some regional touches too – so that there's a criss-crossing of cultures throughout the collection, but with a sound that's always unified by an influence from American soul! The set features a number of cuts from Jamaica, but also includes work from Brazil, Japan, Australia, Peru, and Tunisia too – a superb set list that works together perfectly, with titles that include "Bon Momentos" by Serginho Meriti, "Love To The People" by Sue Barker, "Tokyo Melody" by Shoody, "Soul Brother" by Alec Khaol, "This Is Love" by Brooski, "Disintegration" by Orea, "Chiquito" by Denny King, "My Life" by Noriko Miyamoto with Isao Suzuki, "Crosslines" by Taxi, and "Breezin" by Boris Gardiner.

✨✧ Tony ScottMusic For Zen Meditation ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from reed player Tony Scott – recorded during a time when he was doing a lot of soul-searching with Eastern cultures! The set's a stripped-down batch of long tracks, with Scott's clarinet in the lead, and backing by 2 Japanese musicians on Koto and Shackuhachi. The tracks are shortish, and are designed as platforms for Zen Meditation. Titles include "To Drift Like The Clouds", "Satori", "Za Zen", and "Is Not All One?". LP, Vinyl record album
