VariousEthiopiques Volume 28 – Ali Birra – Great Oromo Music ... CD
Buda (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The Ethiopiques series returns to that early 70s stretch that made its earliest releases so great – and serves up some classic work from singer Ali Birra – a really great discovery from this golden age of music! Birra works here in a style that's referred to as oromo music – and which is a bit different than some other Ethiopian work of the time, yet oddly familiar too! The grooves have a touch of Mulatu's exoticism, and the vocals have the same hypnotic feel we love in Mahmoud Ahmed – spun out with a soulfulness that's instantly compelling, even if you can't understand the language – and which communicates volumes just through its tone and timing. Most tracks here are from the years 1973 and 1975, but the set also features a few late 60s rarities too – plus full notes in both English and French. Titles include "Awash", "Waa Silleen Indararuu", "Eshurruru", "Si Jaalallee", "Si Inhanbisin Warri", and "Abbaa Lafa". CD

VariousMore Ethiopian Soul & Groove – Ethiopian Urban Modern Music Vol 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
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.

VariousHasabe – Killer Ethiopian R&B From The Golden Age Of Ethiopian Music ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy ... About April 15, 2015 (delayed)
Ethiopian R&B, jazz and funk from the late 60s to mid 70s – essential numbers by Mahmoud Ahmed, Alemeyahu Eshete, Lemma Demissew, Sefu Yohannes, Bahta Gebre-Heywet, Teshome Metuku and others – all of which are appearing on vinyl for the first time since the incredibly rare original releases! Hasabe works as both a stellar introduction to the adventurously soulful music of Ethiopia during this pivotal period – and as a tightly-focused vinyl sampler of the extensive (27 CDs and counting) Ethiopiques series from Buda Musique. It focuses squarely on the R&B and funkier strains of the diverse Ethiopiques – and as connoisseurs of the series since the beginning – we can honestly tell you that it's impeccably well selected! 10 classic tracks: "Astawesalehu" and "Adrashash Tefabegn" by Lemma Demissew, "Yehagere Sheta" by Tlahoun Gessesse, "Mela Mela" by Sefu Yohannes, "Aynotche Terabu" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Ayalqem Tedenqo" by Alemayehy Eshete, "Tessaassategn Eko" by Bahta Gebre-Heywet and more. LP, Vinyl record album
