✨✧ Lack Of Afro & OthersOne Way – Lack Of Afro Remixes & Rarities ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2012. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A heavy dose of grooves from Lack Of Afro – not only work recorded under his own name, but remixes and productions he's done for other artists as well! There's a solid commitment to funk on just about every record to bear the Lack Of Afro name – and you'll hear plenty of that in the grooves here – lots of old school 70s funk and soul elements, mixed in nicely to augment the core sounds – and pushed to the forefront on some of the best tracks too! Most of the music isn't played live, but there's definitely a live feel at points – given the choices of samples used – and the 2CD set features Lack Of Afro mixes of tunes that include "Si Si Puede" by Ray Camacho, "It's Real" by Hot 8 Brass Band, "Hurt Me So" by Diplomats Of Solid Sound, "Giorgio's Brother" by Eddie Roberts, "I Can't Dance With You" by The Fantastics, "Greenbacks" by Deep Street Soul, and "Freedom" by Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience – plus Lack Of Afro tracks "Broken Samba", "On My Way", "First Break", "Spooky", and "Numero Seenko".

VariousThis Is DJ's Choice ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2008. Used ... $8.99
The DJs' choice here is a pretty good one – a funky batch of modern beats and bits picked by the team of Soulinus and Pun! The tunes are a mix of deep funk numbers and others that have definite funky inspirations from the past – current cuts that build up their grooves from older basslines and drum parts – then add in a few more contemporary touches as well. All tracks are presented straight, not mixed together – and titles include "Keep It Raw" by Dusty, "Up & Out (Tim Wood rmx)" by The Jazz Invaders, "Super Fly Sh*t" by Tombee, "Loose Gardner" by Flevans, "Shadow Of The Self" by Keno 1, "Losing Me" by Sweet Vandals, "4 O'Clock In The Morning" by Deeno The Dusty Button, "Last Exit" by Radio Citizen, "Get Your Hands In The Air (inst)" by Leisure Allstars, "We Got Soul (Rob Life rmx)" by Quantic, "Hope (edit)" by Glen Anthony Henry, and "Giorgio's Brother (Lack Of Afro rmx)" by Eddie Roberts Quintet.

✨✧ Lack Of AfroMusic For Adverts ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group! The title's a reference to older Brit sound library albums, but the overall feel of the record is more soul-oriented than previous work by the group – making use of some especially strong lead vocals from Jack Tyson-Charles on about half the album's tracks, and mixing other singers and instrumental modes on all the others. The tunes are all pretty upbeat and bouncy – a mix of 60s and 70s styles, jumbled up in a way that's playful and catchy, yet still with plenty of funk appeal too. Titles include "No Guts No Glory", "Freedom", "One For The Trouble", "Recipe For Love", "Coco", "The Gypsy", "Here We Go Again", and "Missing Me". CD

Grant GreenFinal Comedown - Original Soundtrack ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Sealed ... $44.99
An excellent lost funky soundtrack on Blue Note – their only one for years, and Grant Green's entry into the blacksploitation genre! The whole thing bristles with the kind of chunky, thumping percussive feel as the best funky soundtracks of the era – informed by the work of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, but with the deeper jazz feel that Green brings from his other Blue Note sides of the time! Some cuts are quite funky, particularly the opener, "Past, Present, and Future" with it's crisp trap, chicken scratch guitar and bongo driven beat. Others have more of a stripped-down dope instrumental feel – there's some sweet funky flute work on "Fathers Lament", and even a slight bossa groove creeps into the title track! The whole album's very nice, and it's very different than any of Grant Green's other work! Other titles include "Afro Party", Luana's Theme", "Slight Fear And Terror", and "Battle Scene".

Remi KabakaBlack Goddess – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 15.97
One of the most unique Afro jazzy soundtrack you could ever hope to hear – African drummer, keyboard player and composer Remi Kabaka's soundtrack to Black Goddess! The film is from Nigerian director Ola Balogun, but was actually cast and shot in Brazil – and this soundtrack is really amazing and covers a whole lot of territory! The opening track is heavy with this fuzzed out bit of keyboards that's almost a precursor to 80s computer grooves – mixed with some laid back electric guitar and sax, it's a strange, really cool vibe that's totally unlike most Nigerian recordings we can think of. As the tracks roll on, though, the sax and percussion get more play and the sound as a whole more dexterously Afro jazzy and funky. Recorded in Lagos, it features Dele Okonkwo on tenor and soprano sax and BD Wright on keys and bass – both contribute additional percussion - plus Joni Haastrup on guitar and keyboard. Includes "Brothers And Sisters", "The Quest", "Slave March", "Black Goddess", "The Quest (Piano Solo)" and "The Warrior". CD

✨✧ VariousHighlife On The Move – Selected Nigerian & Ghanian Recordings From London & Lagos 1954 to 1966 ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A pretty amazing set on Soundway that not only captures Highlife On The Move from the early 50s to mid 60s, it's essentially the roots of the music and dancefloor culture of some of greatest Ghanaian and Nigerian grooves to come! The historical relevance of the material is monumental to say the least – not only showing the diverse impact of calypso, mambo and jazz music that was being combined in the nascent-to-prime years of highlife, from Lagos to London – but it also includes what's thought to be the first ever recordings by Fela Kuti, with his Highlife Rakers combo. It's compiled by Markus Coester, who also penned the thick, insightful booklet, and true to Soundway tradition, it's impeccably packaged, and the sound quality is pristine as can be. 38 tracks in all, with "Highlife No 5" by Ginger Folorunso Johnson & His Afro-Cuban Band, "Son Of Africa" by Kwamalah Quaye Sextetto Africana, "Niger Mambo" by Bobby Benson & His Combo, "Afro Mood" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Obaa Amponsa Pandogo" by Black Star Band, "Donaldo's Samba" by Afro Rhythm Kings, "Marabi Dance" by Afro Rhythm Kings, "Maggie" by Jhn Santos Martins & Zeal Onya & His Band, "Ghana, Forward Forever" by Lord Ganda & Rupert Nurse's Calypso Band, "Highlife Comes To Europe" by Rans Boi's African Highlife Band, "Uwa D' Arejere" by West African Rhythm Brothers, "Eyo Mano Mi" by T Odueso's Akesan Highlifers, "Wa Sise" by Willie Payne & The Starlite Tempos, "Anyin Gan Na" by Victor Ola-Iya & His Cool Cats and more – plus "Fela's Special" and "Aigana" by Fela Ransome-Kuti & His Highlife Rakers.

✨✧ VariousAfrican Music Today ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The long in the works African Music Today compilation on Truth & Soul – featuring modern African combos working in the tradition of Fela, Tony Allen, Mulatu and others – great stuff from Bama & The Family, Zafari, The Third Eye and others! Compiler Philip Lehmen got the ball rolling on African Music Today earlier in the decade, to showcase modern acts working in the timeless modes of the masters – from the James Brown inspired Afro Funk of Bama & The Family, to organ steeped grooves of The Third Eye, the Ethio jazz inspired Zafari and others. It's all great stuff – including at least a few numbers from long out of print funky 45s and others that are totally fresh to our ears! Great stuff – here's hoping they'll bring us a Vol 2! Includes "Feeling Good" and "Jibberish" by Bama & The Family, "Addis Ababa" by Zafari, Children's Song" by The Third Eye, "Blackout" by Original Brothers, "Percussive Movement" by Friends Of The Family, "Afro Groove" by Adamu Okosun And The Warri Six, "Lights Out" by Jojo Quo & His Challengers and more. 13 tracks in all.
