Manduka
IRT/Ascensionale (Belgium), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About November 1, 2017
Soulful sounds from 70s Chile – and a record that easily rivals some of the best acoustic work from the post-Tropicalia generation in Brazil! Manduka's got a heady sound that's very much in keeping with his image on the cover – a freer sort of approach to the music than the decade ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... About October 20, 2017
A vintage set from the great Ebo Talyor – an artist who's been recording new music in recent years, but who sounds even better here on one of his classics! Ebo's got a fair bit of jazz mixed in with his sound – a layering of flute, trombone, tenor, guitar, and keyboard parts with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
This Is Marijata
Academy/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. (reissue)
LP ... About October 4, 2017 (delayed)
Rare Ghanaian funk from Marijata – a rawer, rootsier take on the mid 70s African funk sound, and really unique vibe overall! Marijata is a core 3-piece featuring drummer Kofi Addison, organist Bob Fischian and guitarist Nat Osmanu of the group Sweet Beans – a set up that provides for a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Why Did We Stop Growing Tall
Glitterbeat (Germany), 2017.
LP ... About October 1, 2017 (delayed)
Heartbreaking sounds from the Abatwa – one of the most endangered peoples in Africa, recorded here in the heart of contemporary Rwanda as part of the Hidden Musics series on Glitterbeat! The collection is incredibly rootsy – like older ethnographic work, but recorded with much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About October 10, 2017 (delayed)
The second entry in Brian Eno's 4th World series of "new ethnographic" recordings for EG – and a haunting batch of atmospheric tunes that feature great trumpet work from Jon Hassell! As with most of his work, Hassell's blowing in an airy, earthy tone, and often using processing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. 2LP
LP ... On October 20, 2017
A much-needed look at the Japanese rock scene at the start of the 70s – one that was going through as many amazing changes as the world of music in the US and UK, but which has always been far out of reach for most listeners in the English-speaking world! The collection's not super-undergroun ... LP, Vinyl record album

Way
Magidisco/Ascensionale (Netherlands), 1977. (reissue)
LP ... About October 15, 2017
