Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

Freddie KingComplete King & Federal Singles ... CD
King/Real Gone, Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $16.99
Smoking early work from the legendary Freddie King – most of it recorded during years he had a strong connection to the Chicago electric blues scene, where he really honed his craft to perfection! The work here is definitely blues, but King's vocals bring a soulful inflection to the songs that's undeniable – and although his hard-riffing style would later be copped by countless imitators on later cheesy blues albums, the presentation here is still breathtaking – really raw, and recorded by King with this clear, sharp sound on the guitar that seems to knock out all other elements when Freddie takes a solo! The package is one of the first to really dig deep into these crucial years for King – and brings together 54 tracks all recorded as singles for King Records – complete with full notes, and even information on the original releases too. Titles include "In The Open", "Texas Oil", "Come On", "Just Pickin", "I Hear Jingle Bells", "Hideaway", "Look Ma I'm Cryin", "King A Ling", "Driving Sideways", "Meet Me At The Station", "Monkey Donkey", "Surf Monkey", "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist", and "Manhole".

VariousAfro Rock Vol 1 ... CD
Kona/Evolver, 1970s. Used ... $8.99
One of the best compilations of Afro Funk titles we've ever stocked – one that goes way past the obvious titles and minor hits of the 70s! Ever tune on here is a gem – and the package even includes a few tunes that were either previously unreleased, or which were only ever issued on cassette, a popular form in 70s Africa. The "rock" in the title should be taken lightly – because the groove here is more funky, with drums, guitar, and horns coming together in glorious rhythmic cacophony! The whole set's got a great raw sound – and titles include "Mabala" by Yahoos, "Onukpa Shawarpo" by Bokoor Band, "Sweeper Soul" by Super Mambo 69, "Yuda" by Dackin Dackino, "Envy No Good" by Mercury Dance Band", and "Fever" by Jingo.

VariousSound Of Tiki ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
A beautiful batch of tropical classics from the glory days of the American exotica scene – put together in a package that's every bit as seductive as the music! The set comes with a lovely 50 page booklet, filled with beautiful color images that work well with the music – that usual high Bear Family quality level we've come to expect! Tunes are well-chosen, too – way past the obvious – and cuts include "I Ha She" by Marais & Miranda, "Kon Tiki" by The Shadows, "House Of Bamboo" by Andy Williams, "Castaway" by Paul Page, "Aku Aku" by Martin Denny, "Taboo Tu" by Arthur Lyman, "Bamboo" by The Surfmen, "Pieces Of Eight" by Paul Page, "Hawaiian Eye" by Buddy Morrow, and "Hawaii Five O/Quiet Village" by Don Ho. Also features a bonus radio jingle – "Luau Is Calling You"! CD

VariousWorld Psychedelic Classics 3 – Love's A Real Thing – The Funky Fuzzy Sounds Of West Africa ... CD
Luaka Bop, Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
A really mind-bending collection of African grooves – one that digs deep into the West African scene of the early 70s – and comes up with a massive batch of tunes that really opens up our understanding of the music! The sound here isn't just 70s Afro Funk – as the tunes include a range of tripped-out styles that make the best use of electric instrumentation, psychedelic production, and important influences from American soul artists at the time. There's some amazing guitar on some of the best tracks – ringing out with a sound that's chromatically complex while also being tripped-out and funky – in a way that complicates the rhythms without totally taking them apart. If you've dug the tunes on previous sets like Africa Funk or Ghana Soundz, this is one to take that sound to the next level – and really open up your ears! Titles include "Keleya" by Moussa Doumbia, "Love's A Real Thing" by The Super Eagles, "Minsato Le Mi Dyihome" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou Dahomey, "Porry" by Sorry Bamba, "Allah Wakbarr" by Ofo & The Black Company, "Sanjina" by Orchestre Regional De Kayes, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, "Zinabu" by Bunzu Sounds, and "Awon-Ojise-Oluwa" by Gasper Lawal.

✨✧ Lenny BruceLenny Bruce Originals Vol 1 (Interviews Of Our Times/Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce) ... CD
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Lenny Bruce 2-fer – 2 classic albums back to back on a single CD! First up is Interviews Of Our Times – not necessarily a record of interviews – as the title might make you think – but one of Bruce's best records for Fantasy! The album's got some very edgey bits that approximate his live material, and which take the best part of his cleaner act, and transfer them well to record. Titles include "Dijinni In The Candy Store", "Enchanting Transylvania", "Interview With Dr Sholem Stein", "The Interview", "All Broadway Musicals Sound The Same, Especially The Baritones", and "The March Of High Fidelity". Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce is possibly the most famous of all the Lenny Bruce albums on Fantasy – as it's the one that has a crazy image of Lenny having a picnic in a cemetery! Lenny's genius is still in formation here – but the record does have some great moments, like the oft-sampled "Religions Inc", and the crazy song "Psychopathia Sexualis", a great example of the way that Lenny used to mix music in his live performances!

✨✧ Lionel HamptonYou Better Know It !!! ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and which is traditional, but never too staid or too "easy" in its choices. The set benefits from some really strong horn work from Clark Terry on trumpet and Ben Webster on tenor – the latter of whom really crackles out with a great sound here. Other players include Milt Hinton on bass, Hank Jones on piano, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's also a very slight bit of vocalizing on the record as well. Titles include "Tempo's Birthday", "Vibraphone Blues", "Trick Or Treat", "Cute", "Swingle Jingle", and "Taste Of Honey". CD

✨✧ Joe HendersonPage One (Non-RVG remastered edition) ... CD
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Joe Henderson's first true moments of greatness – a landmark session recorded with a quintet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums! LaRoca's very free on the drum kit, and gives the set a rhythmic looseness that's a bit of a hint at some of Joe's 70's recordings – and that style's even further supported by Tyner's long flowing lines on piano, and Dorham's sparkling work on the trumpet! Includes the classic reading of Kenny's "Blue Bossa", plus the titles "Recorda-Me", "Jinrikisha", "La Mesha", and "Homestretch". CD

Early 50s mambo work by Prado – recorded in both Mexico and New York, bundled together as a jam-packed set of 25 tracks in all! The tunes have that hard-hitting approach that made Perez such a hit from the start, and the package is one of the best collections of his early work that we've ever seen. Titles include "Jumbo Jumbo", "Martinica", "Latino", "Jing A Ling, Jing A Ling", "Alekum Salem", "O Caballo", "Guao", and "El Bombero". CD

✨✧ Wind In The WillowsWind In The Willows ... CD
Capitol/Fallout (UK), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A group who's as trippy as their storybook title might imply – and an early effort from a young pre-Blondie Debbie Harry! The Wind In The Willows have a sound that's a far bit more folksy than you'd expect from Harry's later work in Blondie – a style that blends acoustic guitars, bits of strings, woodwinds, and more – all together into a sweetly sunny blend that has the members of the group often singing with a bit of a harmony style! The approach is a bit like Spanky & Our Gang at their best – with the same sort of playful twists and turns in mood as the album moves on – and although the group themselves handled the arrangements, the album gets some top-shelf studio help from producer Artie Kornfeld and engineer Brooks Arthur. Titles include "Djini Judy", "Park Ave Blues", "My Uncle Used To Love Me But She Died", "Moments Spent", "Uptown Girl", "So Sad", "There Is But One Truth Daddy", and "The Friendly Lion". CD

✨✧ VariousAfrican Pearls Vol 3 – Mali/One Day On Radio Mali 1965 to 1985 ... CD
Syllart (UK), Mid 60s/1970s/Mid 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
More than just one day on Radio Mali – given that the 2CD set features two full decades of recordings – but a great overview of the styles that flowed freely in Mali during the initial years of independence – in modes both rootsy and more contemporary! Some of the work here was recorded by Radio Mali as part of its efforts to reach out into the nation, and document under-recorded musical talents – and other tracks are by better-known groups who rose to become superstars in the new opportunities afforded by independence. Even the bigger acts, though, still have a nicely rough-edged quality that's different from that of other African work of the 70s and 80s – often a slightly bluesy undercurrent that's led to huge discovery of Malian music by northern audiences in recent years – heard here without all of the cliches that have come with that recent movement. 2CD set features notes in both English and French – and a total of 22 tracks that include "Baara Law" by Troupe Folklorique Kassonke, "Malisajo" by Ensemble Instrumental Du Mali, "Assumukan" by Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel, "Saakoba" by Orchestre National A, "Sanjina" by Orchestre Regional De Kayes, "Madi Guindo" by Rail Band, "Bakari Dian" by Super Biton De Segou, and "Kenu Dugu Fanga" by Kenestar.

✨✧ VariousAfrican Pearls Vol 5 – Cote D'Ivoire – West African Crossroads ... CD
Syllart (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
African Pearls from the Ivory Coast – some surprisingly great numbers from the Syllart catalog, all from a scene we know very little about! The groove here is different than some of the other African Pearls sets – pretty funky at times, with great guitar, keyboard, and bass parts that often emulate American-styled soul and funk – all mixed in with some more regional elements, but again in ways that are different than work of the sort you might find from other African nations! The package is a real revelation – and is overflowing with goodness we might never have discovered otherwise – a set list that features 33 tracks that include "Bliwana" by Ernesto Djedje, "Moya" by Doh Albert, "Pecoussa" by Francois Lougah, "Gbabouho Gnoave" by Justin Stanislas, "Bida Zougou" by Amedee Pierre, "Exode Rurale" by Djins Music, and lots lots more!
