✨✧ Manu DibangoElectric Africa ... LP
Celluloid, 1985. Very Good+ ... $11.99
While we have more or less dismissed a lot of the Celluloid world music productions from the 80s in the past, we look back now and realize that was pretty much just purist snobbery. This Laswell produced album of funky afro grooves doesn't have the same hard African funk that we dig so much about Dibango's early work, but it's more than just a respectable outing, and the 80s electro feel that's creeping in on a number of tracks sounds even better today. Most of the cuts are mid to down tempo, with playing that's a bit more smooth from Dibango's sax, and when you look at the crew Laswell assembled, it's quite the all star cast: Herbie Hancock, Bernie Worrell, Wally Badaru and Aiyb Deng alongside Dibango's Soul Makossa Gang. Four lengthy tracks: "Pata Piya", "Electric Africa", "Echoes Beti" and "L'Arbre A Palabres". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoAfrovision ... LP
Island, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – and some especially nice guitar that both riffs along with the rhythms, then takes off on solo moments that often have some cool processing that makes the sound nice and flangey! The production is a bit tighter than before, but that only seems to sharpen up all the elements even more – making for a massive groove that rolls all the way through cuts that include "Big Blow", "Baobab Sun 7", "Afrovision", "Aloko Party", and "Dakar Streets".

✨✧ VariousBlack Gold 24 Carats ... LP
Warner, 1973. Sealed 2LP ... $11.99
Ouch! Kind of a painful title, considering the fact that the majors were making so much money off of soul music during the early 70s. The set mostly includes titles from Atlantic artists – and tracks include "Soul Makossa" by Manu Dibango, "Funky Nassau" by Beginning Of The End, "Don't Knock My Love" by Wilson Pickett, "Groove Me" by King Floyd, "Memphis Soul Stew" by King Curtis, "The Ghetto" by Donny Hathaway, "Clean Up Woman" by Betty Wright, "Show Me" by Joe Tex, and "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs. LP, Vinyl record album
