Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Hopkins Sings The Blues ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 40s. Used ... $4.99
An incredible collection of early material from the mighty Lightnin Hopkins – just the kind of sounds that made him an earthshaker right from the start! Hopkins hardly needs anyone but himself to put over the message here – as his guitar work is mindblowing, and his vocals have a raw power that's undeniable – a sound that went onto influence hundreds of rockers, none of whom ever came close to matching his brilliance. The set brings together mid 40s material by Hopkins – most of it recorded for Aladdin Records, and served up in a heavy-hitting collection that features 26 tracks in all – titles that include "Have To Let You Go", "Morning Blues", "Lightnin's Boogie", "Baby You're Not Going To Make A Fool Out Of Me", "You're Not Goin To Worry My Life Anymore", "I Can't Stay Here In Your Town", "You're Gonna Miss Me", "Drinkin Woman", and "Unpredictable Woman".

✨✧ Lightning Head13 Faces Of Lightning Head ... CD
Lion Head (Germany), 2008. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A global funk gem from Lightning Head, aka Glyn "Bigga" Bush of Rockers Hi Fi – an artist who takes a surprising, truly funky, and wholly credible left turn into Afrobeat! Lightning Head doesn't forsake the electro grooves of earlier work so much as steep it very heavily in organic Afrofunk – with JBs via Lagos horn blasts and guitar, electric organ, flute, heavy & dubby rhythms galore – all compacted wonderfully into tight grooves that are heavy on instrumental riffing, with some very slight occasional dub touches as well. We honestly like this stuff way more than Rockers Hi Fi – and the record's proof that Lagos is often a much better mode to cop than Kingston! Titles include "NPG (Nigerian Police Groove)", "Bokoor Sound Special", "Afro Spot", "Abyssinia Rising", "Power Of The Great", "Preguntas Por Que", and "Ilu Baje". CD

✨✧ HubaHuba ... CD
Jupiter (Finland), 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
The long-awaited full length album from Huba – a Finnish combo who first caught our ear a few years back, with an incredibly soulful approach that's rooted way back in the 70s! There's a quality here that reminds us a fair bit of Curtis Mayfield on the best numbers – a slightly raspy approach to the vocals that's far more soulful than you'd guess from the cover, or the origin of the music – served up with gently funky backings that have bits of wah wah guitar, great horns, and an overall sound that's as lean and personal as the vocals! Production is often subtly simple – somewhere in a space between Hi Records and Curtom – further focusing the energy of the record in the right direction – and tunes are all originals by lead singer Tuomas Kaila, with titles that include "Mary", "Man Brings The Bread", "Summer Morn", "The Midwife", "Let The Lightning Strike", "Like Sly Says", and "Natural High".
