King Sunny AdeAura ... LP
Island, 1984. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A crucial record in the early days of the global scene in the 80s – a set that lifts the music of King Sunny Ade from its roots in Nigeria, and mixes it up with some fresh elements that really open things up for a world's worth of ears! The approach isn't commercial – at least not in the modes of the later world music years – but there's occasional elements that echo the beat culture rising up in New York and London, mixed with the warmer sounds that were always at Sunny's music – especially that way of making the acoustic percussion and basslines come together in flowing waves of completely sublime sound! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Gboromiro", "Oremi", "Ire", "Iro", "Ogunja", and "Ase". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has light wear, a small sticker remnant on the front and a promo stamp on the back.)

✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Power 70 – Afro Funk, Afro Rock, Afro Disco ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of lesser-known gems from the 70s scene in Nigeria – music that's a great counterpart to better-remembered Afro Funk and soul from international giants like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade! This set digs deep, and is a nicelly expanded version of a set that Soul Jazz issued years back as a limited edition 7" single box for Record Store Day – presented here with more music, and a detailed set of notes – really getting at the special scene that was taking place in Nigeria at the time, as the nation was rising to the top of the African scene with a fantastic criss-crossing of musical modes! There's definitely plenty of the funk promised in the title, and the "rock" is usually of the funky kind with great guitar work – and a few later cuts even pick up the pace with a bit of disco, but more in the fast-funk mode, and hardly the slick stuff of the American scene. Titles include "Africans Must Unite" and "Shake Hands" by Geraldo Pino, "We'll Get Home" by The Wings, "E Ye Ika Se" by Alhagi Prof Kollington Ayinala, "Kassa Kpa Sama Kpa" by Colomach, "Beware" by MFB, "You Are The One" by Tony Grey & The Ozimba Messengers, "Single Boy" by The Wings, "Sugar Baby" by Don Bruce & The Angels", "Power To The People" by Geraldo Pino, "Igba Alusi" by Original Wings, "Dance Of The Elephants" by Sonny Okosunds Ozziddi, and "Oba Erediauwa I" by Sonny Okosuns.

Bill CosbyHooray For The Salvation Army Band! ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An early funk album by Bill Cosby – with backing by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Bill was pals with Charles Wright and crew in the hip LA of the late 60s, and he was also responsible for bringing the group to Warner Brothers – so the fit here is quite a natural one. The record was also produced by Fred Smith – who handled the Watts Band's albums – and it's got a very similar feel to their classics for Warner from the late 60s – but with Bill Cosby stepping out in front on vocals, in a similar style to Charles Wright. Cosby's singing is often a bit goofy, but works beautifully with the stoned to the bone feel of the group – a madder match than even Charles Wright, especially on the album's "parody soul" cuts. Titles include a classic break version of "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" – plus the titles "Ursalena", "Funky North Philadelphia", "Sunny", and a surprisingly great screaming version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear, a split spine, and some sticker spots on front.)

Janko NilovicSupra Hip Hop Impressions ... LP
Broc (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A really great setting for the talents of French funky sound library genius Janko Nilovic – a set of new recordings that feature Janko on keyboards, alongside some very stripped-down beats and rhythms! Given that Nilovic's music has been sampled often over the years, the approach is no surprise – and it's almost as if Janko has decided to give back to the hip hop community by making a more contemporary set of instrumentals, but with that trademark sense of funk and space that always made his classic records so great! There's a bit of flute and tenor on the record too – and titles include "This Is How We Do", "Sunny Piece", "A Walk On The Bright Side", "No More Sorrow", "My Latin Thing", "A Spy Always Lie", and "Vox Of My Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cecil TaylorAir – Featuring Archie Shepp. ... LP
Candid, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cecil Taylor and Archie Shepp – two key modern figures of the 60s, working here together in a seminal session recorded at the start of the decade! The album's approach is definitely dictated by Taylor – as the tunes have a piano-driven quality that's quite different than most music Shepp would later record – although Archie still manages to get in plenty of great moments on tenor! You can really hear Cecil breaking out of his earlier sound on the record – stretching forth in some of the more freely expressive ways that would dominate later, yet never too free – almost with a hint of modern swing at some points. Other players include Buell Niedlinger on bass and either Sunny Murray or Dennis Charles on drums – and titles include "Air", "Eb", and "Port Of Call". LP, Vinyl record album
(Barnaby pressing. Cover has a name in pen on the back, but is otherwise in nice shape.)

✨✧ Benny SingsMusic (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2021. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Benny Sings has a scruffy sort of look on the cover here – but his music is wonderfully smooth and soulful – every bit the sound that we've loved on all of his previous records, and which makes Benny maybe one of the under-discovered talents of the global scene of the past decade or so! Benny's got a way of putting together songs that are simple and tuneful, often with relatively light instrumentation – but which have a way of getting his charms across right from the start, like he's some sort of top-shelf Cali talent from the 70s, just cooking up cool little tunes in his home studio on Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Here It Comes", "Nobody's Fault", "Break Away", "Sunny Afternoon", "Run Right Back", "Miracles", "Music", and "Lost Again". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Davy GrahamHolly Kaleidoscope (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Decca (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really great record from the legendary Davy Graham – and one of his few to be recorded with wife Holly Gwyn! Holly's an American singer, and one who's maybe got a bit more of a folk blues approach than Davy – and their balance together is mighty nice – lots of that fantastic fingerpicking work that Graham brought to his guitar, which is here both acoustic and electric – often with that current of jazz that made his music stand out so much on the UK scene! Some tracks feature just Davy, some just Holly, and there's some nice instrumentals too – amidst titles that include "Flower Never Bend With The Rainfall", "Blackbird", "Blues At Gino's", "Mary Open The Door", "Fingerbuster", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", "Charlie", "I Know My Love", "Sunnymoon For Two", and "Wilt Thou Unkind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition muli-colored vinyl pressing!)
