VariousMolam Thai Country Groove From Isan Vol 2 ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. Used ... $13.99
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. Titles inclu de "Instrumental Lam Sing" by Kalasin, "Hak Beb Nang Thai" by Palatoni Songsim, "Lam Plern Chawiwan" by Chawiwan Damnoen, "Chun Cher" by P Promdan, and "Raiteem Tarn" by Thong Thaithin Isan.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Charles DuvellePhotographs Of Charles Duvelle – Disques Ocora & Collection Prophet (2CDs & hardcover book) ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD & Book ... Out Of Stock
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!)
