Atomic Bomb

LP (Item 836550) Wilfilms (Nigeria), 1978 — Condition: Good

An incredible legacy in music! William Onyeabor has a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a weird mix of African rhythms and contemporary 70s keyboards – served up in a hypnotic blend of boogie and underground club styles borrowed from the US, but delivered with an earthy, very personal quality – a sound that's gotten Onyeabar plenty of attention over the years. Titles include "Beautiful Baby", "Atomic Bomb", "Shame", "I Need You All Life" and "Batter Change Your Mind".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing! Cover has ring and edge wear, some red marker on front and back, and a bit of pen. Labels have some pen and marker. Plays with some faint crackle and occasional pop.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Shakara
EMI (Nigeria), 1974. Fair
The cover image here really demonstrates the charisma of Fela at his height – dozens of topless women, kneeling around the maestro and spelling out the number 70 – but to us, the music is what really shows the man's power – a bold, progressive statement of the new energy bubbling ...

Destiny
Atom Park (Nigeria), 1988. Very Good
We have to be honest, we know a little bit about African music, but not a lot. So when we came across a small stack of African records, we scooped them up and put them online, but rather than insult those of you out there who know and love this stuff, we're just listing them at a nice price ...

Willie Williams

Raw Unpolluted Soul
Supreme Blues/Rah-El, Early 70s. Good
Messed up funky blues from drummer Willie Williams – here leading a Chicago group that includes work by Pinetop Perkins, Eddie Taylor, Roy Lee Johnson, Carel Bell, and Little Mack. There's no all-out funk tracks on the record – but it does have a soulful edge overall, especially in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick, Mid 60s. Good
Amazing stuff from bassist Eldee Young and drummer Isaac "Red" Holt!

Blue Note, 1975. Good
An incredible record that was one of the highest points of Donald Byrd's career! The album's the third one he cut with producer/arranger Larry Mizell – and of all Byrd's work with Mizell, this one's the funkiest, the tightest, the most soulful, and the most perfectly realized vision of the ...
