Charles DuvellePhotographs Of Charles Duvelle – Disques Ocora & Collection Prophet (2CDs & hardcover book) ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD & Book ... $56.99 68.99
An amazing tribute to one of the greatest series of ethnographic material ever recorded – the legendary Disques Ocora records – still unsurpassed in terms of their care and quality! The material set a new standard for field recordings – handled by musicologist Charles Duvelle, who also shot a huge amount of photographs during the time of the project, too – a huge number of which are reproduced in this stunning book! The volume is way more than just a selection of ethnographic images – as it follows the recording program of the label, and is laid out as such – and is followed by a complete discography of Ocora Records, with album cover images and other details too. There's also an interview with Duvelle, who also put together 2CDs' worth of his favorite Ocora Recordings – which illustrate just how mindblowing the label's efforts were back in the 60s. There's other goodies too – an index for the photos, a report on Eastern Music In Africa prepared by Duvelle for Unesco in 1970, and even a look at The Prophet Collection – Duvelle's label after Ocora. One of the nicest sets we've ever seen from Sublime Frequencies – and one that maybe puts it on a par with Ocora! CD
(293 page hardbound book with over 200 black & white and color photos plus 2CDs of field recordings – a beautiful package!)

VariousMolam – Thai Country Groove From Isan ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. Used ... $11.99
It's a bit hard to imagine the words "Thai" and "country" in the same place – but one listen to this set will show that the title's definitely got the right idea! The work here is oddly rootsy, yet has a modern feel too – a blend of acoustic instrumentation and some more pop-oriented production, used to create a very weird hybrid of South Asian sounds – music that's unlike anything else we can think of! Molam is a regional folk music of Thailand, often based around the khene – a strange bamboo "mouth organ" with some very odd sonic properties. Yet there's also a sense of variation in the music that's really documented here – shifting styles of expression that reflect different regional cultures poised to enter the mainstream with the addition of guitar and keyboards too. Vocals are as wild as the instrumentation – and titles include "Chiwit Sao Molam (Life Of A Molam Woman)" by Kwanjai Kalasin Yuk Patana, "Ruk Mai Somwong (Broken Heart-So Let's Dance)" by Sabaithong Powpuri, "Pua Mao Mea Mao (Husband Drunk, Wife Drunk)" by Unknown, and "Lam Phun Eun Sai (I Call For You)" by Tome Me Malai.

VariousMolam Thai Country Groove From Isan Vol 2 ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Hard to believe a genre as obscure as this would yield up enough material for another set – but this second volume's almost even more wonderful than the first! As before, the work here is all molam – a Laotian and Thai folk country music genre, but one with plenty of psychedelic touches too! The instrumentation often includes a lot of electric guitar – played in weird and wonderful ways that often get kind of echoey and exotic – usually with a sound that's older than the date of the material, and which ends up sounding even cooler because of the odd production used on the tunes. There's less folk or rural elements here than you'd expect – and most numbers come across like some of the non-dance tracks from Bollywood. 21 tracks in all including "Instrumental Lam Sing" by Kalasin, "Hak Beb Nang Thai" by Palatoni Songsim, "Lam Plern Chawiwan" by Chawiwan Damnoen, "Chun Cher" by P Promdan, "Raiteem Tarn" by Thong Thaithin Isan and lots more.

✨✧ Various1970s Algerian Proto-Rai Underground ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very hip collection of Algerian work from the 70s – work that predates some of the more familiar rai from the 80s, served up with a much rougher style overall! The instrumentation here is all tied strongly to the rhythms – horn parts and guitar lines that romp just as much as the drums – all in support of pointed lyrics that often have a forceful feel – pushing out boldly, even if you can't understand the language! The tunes are really hypnotic, given the instrumental interplay – and the vocals are the one element that seems to burst out of its own accord. Titles include "Malgre Tout" and "Dayha Oulabes" by Boutaiba Sghir, "Li Maandouche L'Auto" and "Lah Lah Ya S'Habi" by Bellemou & Benfissa, "Ana Dellai" by Cheb Zergui, and "Mazul Nesker Mazal" by Groupe El Azhar.
