✨✧ Mahmoud Ahmed/Girma BeyeneAynotche Terabu/Ene Negn Bay Manesh ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay Manesh" – a track from Girma Beyene that's pretty freewheeling on the vocal tip, but nicely funky in the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousEthiopiques Vol 7 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Ere Mela Mela ... CD
Buda (France), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Another great volume of Ethiopiques! Volume 7 of Ethiopiques series is another expanded re-issue of an LP by Mahmoud Ahmed originally released in 1975. Though there seems to be an abundance of songs by Ahmed from 1975 on volumes 1 and 3, we can't find any overlap with the songs on this album. The songs are the same sort of fusion of American soul and jazz with shuffling rhythms of Ethiopian music. Features "Belomi Benna" and "Bemen Sebeb Letlash". CD

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Vol 6 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Almaz ... CD
Buda (France), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Volume 6 of the fantastic Ethiopiques series is an expanded re-issue of the first lp by Mahmoud Ahmed plus his first single from 1971. While not as clearly influenced by American soul and jazz, there are a few funky cuts that are pretty nice! Most of these songs flow with a groove unique to Ethiopian music – and although Ahmed's songs appear throughout the Ethiopiques series, only one of these songs appears on other volumes ("Kulun Mankwalesh"). With the groovy "Nafqot New Yegodagn" and "Yasdestal". CD

VariousEthiopiques Vol 3 – Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music 1969 to 1975 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Volume 3 of this Amazing collection of Ethiopian pop/jazz/soul recorded 1969-1975. Volume 3 is more clearly influenced by American soul music than other volumes – and the songs mix more traditional Ethiopian styles with grooves of the JBs and Curtis Mayfield variety. A great place to start with this collection – and filled with excellent work by Mulugen Mellesse, Tadele Beqele, Tiahoun Gessesse, Hirut Begele, and the great Mahmoud Ahmed! CD

VariousEthiopiques Volume 10 – Tezeta: Ethiopian Blues & Ballads ... CD
Buda (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Excellent stuff – even if this volume isn't as funky as other numbers in the Ethiopiques series! Instead, the tracks are soulful and bluesy numbers – half vocal, half instrumental tunes, with a really dark approach, and backings that are spare and extremely haunting. The vocalists are amazing – with a wailing crying tone that really sets the mood of the CD – and the instrumentalists follow suit with moody solo work on guitar and tenor sax. Titles include "Eyetegnu Negu" by Frew Haylou, "Hedetch Alu" by Mulequen Mellesse, "Tezeta" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Tezeta" by Menelik Wesnatchew, "Gubelye" by Mulatu Astatqe, and "Alteleyeshegnem" by Alemayehu Eshete.

VariousMore Ethiopian Soul & Groove – Ethiopian Urban Modern Music Vol 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Mad music that's unlike anything else we can think of – a killer collection of funky grooves from the Ethiopian scene of the 70s – offered up here on a vinyl-only compilation! The set's a great one if you've heard the music of Mulatu, but want to dig a lot deeper – as the cats included on this set are most of his contemporaries from the golden years of Ethiopian music – and most of them work in a similar offbeat, other-worldly sort of style! Rhythms are skittish, horns are hypnotic, and the vocals on some of the tracks have a weird appeal that really transcends the boundaries of language – almost like another instrumental element that fits in wonderfully with the heavy grooves underneath. Titles on the collection are pulled from various volumes of the Ethiopiques series – making this set kind of a distillation of all its greatness. Tracks include "Yebeqagnal" and "Ene Negn Bay Manesh" by Girma Beyene, "Queresh Endewaza" by Samuel Belay, "Ewnetegna Feqer" by Hirut Bequele, "Lomiwen Teqebeletch" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Gedamay" by Getatchew Mekurya, and "Metche New" by Asselefetch Ashine & Getenesh Kebret.

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Vol 8 – Swinging Addis 1969-1974 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest of the Ethopiques series! Like the best volumes in this series, this 8th one features some killer tunes with a hard soul approach – recorded in Ethiopia, but clearly influenced by the American funk of the late 60s and early 70s! The arrangements are mad mad mad – with plenty of incredible guitar work, tight bass-driven rhythms, and a screaming funk sound that makes the CD feel like a pile of funky 45s done in a language you can't understand! Includes work by Girma Beyene, Mahmoud Ahmed, Alemayehu Eshete, Lemma Demissew, and Samuel Belay. Essentially funky! CD

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Volume 25 – Modern Roots 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Buda (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing return to form for the Ethiopiques series – wonderful cuts from that early 70s moment when Ethiopian music was really exploding with new ideas! If you've dug some of the other sets in the series – especially those by Mulatu, Tlahoun Gessesse, and Mahmoud Ahmed – you'll find plenty to love here – as the rhythms are exotic, the instrumentation unusual, and the sounds out of this world – really amazing stuff that breaks down any conventions you might expect – exactly that fresh spirit that's been taken up by so many younger artists in recent years. As with other volumes, notes are both in English and French, with lots of images too – and titles include "Wefe Yelala" by Damtew Ayele, "Gebre Guratch Gute" by Abbebe Tessemma, "Yakolele" by Gemetchu Itana, "Kasegnesh" by Tlahoun Gessesse, "Balendjere" by Abayneh Dedjene, "Yeborena Game" by Hayle Werque, and "Ayamaru Eshete" by Essatu Tessemma.
