✨✧ Wally BadarouChief Inspector ... LP
Island, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoothly stepping soul from Wally Badarou – not as atmospheric as on other releases, but with traces of that sound in a more funked up groove. There's some nice cuts on here that have a New York post punk funk approach to them – very downtown Danceteria, with almost a pre house kind of keyboard approach. This 5 track EP includes "Mambo", "Spider Woman", "Hi Life", and "Chief Inspector". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wally BadarouEchoes ... LP
Island, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tough record to peg – but a great one too! Wally Badarou plays a range of spacey keyboards that include synclavier, mini moog, and prophet 5 – all over some beats that are a mix of electro and Carribean rhythms – in a style that's part jazzy, part new agey, and part 80s groove! The record's an unusual one, but it's pretty darn compelling – especially from a vantage point of the many years since it was recorded – because Badarou's clearly years ahead of his time, working here in a style that predates many changes to come in electronic music of the 21st century! Tracks include "Endless Race", "Jungle", "Rain", "Keys", "Mambo", and "Canyons". LP, Vinyl record album

Lizzy Mercier DesclouxMambo Nassau (with downolad including bonus tracks) ... LP
Ze/Light In The Attic, 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 23.98
A really funked-up batch of dancefloor tunes – produced with a uniquely cross-cultural approach! Ze Records diva Lizzy Mercier Descloux works here with influential post-disco, post-punk producer Steve Stanely – on a set of tunes cut in Nassau, with some great backing by a combo that includes Wally Badarou on keyboards. The resulting groove takes the skittish pan-club sound of the early 80s Ze Records scene, and infuses it with the hippest take on Jamaican rhythms of the time – resulting in a groundbreaking batch of tunes that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "Room Mate", "Sports Spootnicks", "Payola", "Funky Stuff", "Slipped Disc", "Lady O K'Pete", and "Bim Bam Boum". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download of the full album – plus 5 bonus tracks too!)

FelaTeacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense ... CD
Barclay/Mercury, 1986. Used ... $7.99
An overlooked gem from the 80s years of Fela Kuti – and a set that has the Afro Funk genius working with strong studio help from Wally Badarou! The vibe's still as fierce and frenetic as Fela's classic material – each track takes up a full side of the record, with lots of hard rhythms, long instrumental solos, and righteous lyrics – but Badarou has a way of fleshing out the sound without making things sound clunky or commercial – using the some of the subtle elements of his own records, in ways that really bring out the darkness in the tunes! These effects are subtle, but powerful – and maybe work better with Fela than any other producer in the 80s. Titles include "Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense" and "Look & Laugh". CD

FelaTeacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense (edit)/Look & Laugh (edit) ... 12-inch
Mercury, 1986. Near Mint- ... $16.99
2 80s numbers from Fela, off the Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense album, where he was working with groundbreaking producer Wally Badarou, who gives the keyboard stylings of the Egypt 80 groove the same spacey spooky sound that you'll find in his own work from the time – blending the Afro Funk groove with a dubbier approach that has a bit more space, one that opens up the sound nicely! Unfortunately, both numbers here have been edited down to about 4 minutes, probably in an attempt at garnering some radio play. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

✨✧ Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good ... $24.99
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
