Miriam MakebaKeep Me In Mind ... CD
Reprise/Strut (UK), 1970. New Copy ... About November 1, 2021
One of Miriam Makeba's hippest albums of all time – a set that marked the end of her association with Reprise Records, and her fame in the crossover American scene of the 60s – and for good reason, too – as the whole thing's brimming over with much more righteous energy than ever before! Makeba's really letting loose here – not content to bring South African custom and culture to the overseas mainstream, but instead stepping forth with a new sense of mission and message – one that even comes through when she takes on some more familiar tunes by other artists at the time! The set features production from Lewis Merenstein, who'd done Astral Weeks – and the sound here is so different than Miriam's records from just a few years before – thanks also in part to the great backing arranged by George Butcher, which adds in lots of bass, percussion, and horns that take Miriam into a hipper 70s Afro Soul mode. Titles include "Lumumba", "Kulala", "Tululu", "Down On the Corner", "In My Life", and a great cover of "For What It's Worth". CD

Miriam MakebaMagic Of Makeba ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A bit of a mainstream effort from Makeba, as this set features more of an emphasis on pop material and standards than on some of her other records. Sid Bass conducted and arranged the orchestral backing on the folk and sixties pop classics, which doesn't leave as much room for her vocal stylings as we'd hope for, but there's a few bright moments shining through here and there, and numbers include "When I've Passed On", "Autumn Song", "Seven Good Years", "Sleep Tight", "Where Does It Lead", "Muntu", and "Oh, So Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo Dynagroove pressing with deep groove. Includes the RCA inner sleeve. Cover has a small center split in the top seam, in great shape otherwise.)

Miriam MakebaMagnificent Miriam Makeba ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A hip little album by Miriam Makeba – part South African soul, part New York hip, with arrangements that recall some of Makeba's later work, bits of Nina Simone, and touches of Uptown soul. Arrangements and backing are by Luchi De Jesus – and Sivuca's actually part of the backing, and you can hear him singing and playing accordion behind Makeba with that cool breezy sound of his. Titles include "Mr Man", "A Piece Of Ground", "Akana Nkomo", "West Wind", "Where Are You Going", and "My Love Is Young". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing, with deep groove.)

✨✧ Miriam MakebaMakeba! ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Very nice work from Miriam Makeba – who by this point is really hipping up her style a lot, taking the earlier folksy sound and infusing it with a bit more of the Hugh Masekela-driven African soul styles of the late 60s. Jerry Ragovoy produced the record, and he and Miriam handled all the arrangements. Tracks are a mix of mellower numbers with more jaunty tracks in the style of Miriam's hit "Pata Pata" (which isn't on this album.) Titles include "U Mngoma", "Iphi Ndilela", "Sibongile", "Hamba Naye", and "Umoya". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label stereo promo. Cover has light wear and some aging.)

Miriam MakebaMany Voices Of Miriam Makeba ... LP
Kapp, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great album – even if Miriam's not in as many voices as promised by the title! (Who do they think she is – Rich Little?) The recording quality appears to be live – as the tracks have an open jamming style, with Miriam singing in that rich, folksy style of her early years, while a small combo backs her up on guitar, bass, and percussion, plus some trumpet by Hugh Masekela. Titles include "Nagula", "Can't Cross Over", "Night Must Fall", "Liwa Wechi", "Kilimanjaro", and "Ngola Kurila". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light aging.)

Miriam MakebaRoots Of Miriam Makeba – From South Africa To New York ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A huge collection of work from the legendary South African singer Miriam Makeba – one that opens up a surprisingly big chapter of material before she started issuing her famous early records in America! The package begins with a big array of 78rpm singles from her homeland – then eventually moves into some of her work for RCA on the second disc – and throughout the package, there's an evolution of sound that's wonderful – music that's maybe more jazzy at the start, but which takes on more of a South African spirit as the 50s move on – then steps into some of the folk-tinged elements that first helped Makeba find an audience here in the US. Early singles include "Orlando", "Vula Amasango", "Hush", "Siyavuya", "Inkomo Zodwa", "Makoti", "Nididliwe Zintabe", "Unyana Wolahleka", "Ngicela Indiela", "Phata Phata", "Miriam's Goodbye To Africa", "Lakutshon Ilanga", "Lovely Lies", and "Pula Kgosi Seretse" – just part of the 32 early tracks on the set – before going into the RCA albums Miriam Makeba and Many Voices Of Miriam Makeba – as well as two tracks with Harry Belafonte.

✨✧ Miriam MakebaMiriam Makeba In Concert! ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty great set – a bit folksier than most of Makeba's other work for Reprise, but recorded with a pretty lively groove on many numbers, a lot more interesting than some of Makeba's early work in the folk vein. The record includes a 7 minute version of "A Piece Of Ground", a nice take on "Mas Que Nada", and the cuts "Ibabalazie", "Click Song", "Jolinkomo", and "Reza". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo! Cover has light wear and some aging, but looks great overall.)

VariousCraig Charles Trunk Of Funk Vol 1 ... LP
Soul Bank, 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
A smoking set of funk and soul put together by Craig Charles – once an actor, now a long-running DJ on the BBC – where his ear for a tune has made him almost as important as John Peel and Gilles Peterson! Craig's got a wide-ranging appreciation for all things funky – which comes through here, in a blend of tracks that is both classic and contemporary – rare cuts from the past, and some overlooked gems from the present – but all with a continued love of the elements that make 60s and 70s soul so great! Tracks include "Boogie Down" by Roy Ayers, "Hold My Hand" by Laneous, "Soul A Go Go" by Soul Messin Allstars, "Superfly (Sam Redmore's Trunk Of Funk edit)" by Amp Fiddler, "Medicated Goo" by PP Arnold, "African Rhythms (Trunk Of Funk edit)" by Oneness Of Juju, "Forget Me Nots (7" single mix)" by Patrice Rushen, "Beggin" by Magnus Carlson, "People Get Ready" by James Taylor Quartet, "Give Me The Night" by Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel, "Take A Shot" by The Fantastics, "Clap Hands" by Honeyfeet, "Telling You Lies" by Alex Opal, "The Only Difference" by Beatchild & The Slakedliqs, "Hangin On" by Monophonics, and "Pata Pata" by Miriam Makeba.

✨✧ Mary Afi UsuahAfrican Woman ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most hard-grooving set we've heard from singer Mary Afi Usuah – a set that has all these deep, bassy currents on the bottom – which hold a nice groove underneath Mary's heavenly voice! Usuah has a range that's much greater than some of her contemporaries – no surprise, since she studied opera in Rome – but the style here is nicely gritty overall, with bumping bass and some riffing guitar that almost pushes some numbers into Betty Davis territory, but with more of a 70s Afro soul vibe. Imagine if Miriam Makeba made a funk record, and you'll get part of the feel of this unique little set – which includes the cuts "What's A Woman To Do", "Sweet Elijah", "Our Generation", "Spread More Love", "Kam Fat Owo", "African Woman", and "Tenkim Kpoho".
