Wally Badarou & OthersCountryman – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Island, 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most sought after reggae soundtracks, and it's no wonder – Chris "The Vampire" Blackwell pulled out all the stops on this great compilation to the rarely seen film. As you'd expect, it's an all star cast of island (and Island) greats, with pure roots numbers sitting right next to slightly more slicked up tracks. Includes "Time Will Tell" and "Pass It On" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Sitting & Watching" by Dennis Brown, "Ooh Aah" by The Fabulous Five, "Bam Bam" by Toots & The Maytals, "Ramble" by Rico, "Sound System" by Steel Pulse, and "Mosman Skank" by Aswad. Plus, there's a nice batch of numbers recorded by Wally Badaru for the film's score, excellent instrumentals and a few with some dialogue overlaid, including "Theme From Countryman", "Guidance", and "Obeah Man Dub".

✨✧ Wally BadarouBack To Scales To-Night ... CD
Barclay/Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great early solo album from Wally Badarou – done before his bigger global records on Island, but at a point when he'd already had great work in the studio, helping out some of the key sessions on the Nassau scene at the end of the 70s! Wally's as much a singer as he is a keyboardist here – and the album has a vibe that reflects its initial release on the French scene – kind of Caribbean via Paris, with just the right attempts the give the whole thing a bit of a modern soul spin. There's a few nice instrumentals on the set – "London Town" and "Lady Finger Blue" – and other titles include "One Day Won't Give It Away", "Back To Scales Tonight", "Sing Me Your Song", "Dream On The Sand", "Preachin", and "She Turns Me On".

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP
Island, 1983. Very Good ... $11.99
A mini-LP, but one that packs more punch than most full length sets – thanks to a top-shelf lineup all the way through! The set's a project put together by Sly & Robbie, and recorded at Compass Point Studios – all with a groove that's kind of a dubbier take on the sound of New York dancefloors a the time – nicely bassy, slightly beaty, and topped with some really wonderful vocals from Gwen Guthrie! Larry Levan mixed the whole thing to perfection, giving it a real Paradise groove – and instrumentation is by Wally Badarou on synth, Harry Whitaker on keyboards, Darryl Thompson on guitars, and Jimmy Maelin on percussion. The set's kind of a mini-suite, based around a few key musical themes – and titles include "Padlock", "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Peanut Butter" and "Getting Hot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good- ... $11.99
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)". LP, Vinyl record album
