Koola Lobitos/1969 LA Sessions

CD (Item 497427) Barclay, Mid/Late 60s — Condition: Used
$8.99 ...

CD

Some of Fela's earliest work! The Koola Lobitos record features work from 1964 to 1968, most of it never issued before, and a startling look at the early days of Afro Funk. The music is a mixture of highlife, South African soul, and a good deal more funk than Fela's every given credit for during the 60s. The horns come together beautifully, often in a sad Hugh Masekela-type style, underpinned by work on electric bass, and some warm electric piano! The 69 LA sessions are great, too – and feature pivotal work in a similar style, kicked up a few notches on bass and percussion. The tracks are shorter than later – most are 3 to 6 minutes long – but the intensity of the work is incredible, and makes us wonder what would have happened to the LA scene had Fela stayed in the city! Titles include "Eko", "My Lady Frustration", "Lover", "Funky Horn", "Olofe Mi", "Laise Lairo", "Wayo", "Highlife Time", and "This Is Sad".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Shanachie, Early 80s. Used
Excellent work from Fela – recorded in the early 80s, but every bit as great as his classic 70s work! In fact, the cuts may be even more interesting – because the groove's a bit more complicated, and the overall sound is far moodier, with a greater range of emotion than the early days. ... CD
Barclay, 1975. Used
Two excellent Fela albums from 1975 – both quite rare in the original! Everything Scatter features two long tracks – "Everything Scatter", a bass-heavy, sax-riffing jammer with a mad mad electric piano solo; and "Who No Know Go Know", a funky call for freedom in ... CD
Subliminal Sounds, 1960s. Used
Driving rhythms, rave-up guitar licks, groovy mod organ and proto-psychedelic guitar – from 60s Thailand! The Thai Beat series shines a warm light on the rare rock from "the Land of Smile" – and it's a worthy endeavor! The freewheelin' sunshine 60s groove stretched all ... CD

Silver Tortoise, Mid 60s. Used
Weird and wonderful work from the Southeast Asian scene of the 60s – very cool grooves that show a heavy influence from American rockers of the time! The lyrics here are often sung in English, and the music is filled with the same sort of jangly guitars, driving drums, and mod-styled rhythms ... CD

A stone cold funk album that forever changed the face of soul music – a bold shift in styles by the Isley Brothers at the end of the 60s, really setting the scene for their megafame of the next decade! The album's a follow up to the landmark It's Your Thing set – and it starts in the ... CD
