Benis CletinJungle Magic ... LP
Afrodesia (Nigeria), 1979. Sealed ... $19.99
A set that definitely lives up to the promise of its title – as it offers up this magical blend of earthy elements and Afro Funk – all served up in a style that's quite unique! Benis Cletin has a massive bassist on the set – who creates these pulsating lines that are strongly funky at the start of most tracks – which really locks things in, while Benis stretches out on his vocals, and sometimes adds in these weird moogy keyboards – almost with a William Onyeabor sort of vibe! There's also other organ and keyboard lines that intertwine with the grooves – all in ways that are never too slick, or trying for any sort of crossover Afro Disco styles – even though a number of cuts here would be perfect for a funky dancefloor. Titles include "Fireman", "Mr Teacher", "Jungle Magic", "Beautiful Continent", and "Rain Sun & Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue on PMG.)

✨✧ Christy EssienGive Me A Chance (with bonus download) ... LP
Afrodesia (Nigeria), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Christy Essien is a singer with a very unusual voice, especially for the Nigerian scene – kind of this flowing, rich approach that seems to work equally well with ballads and groovers! There's plenty of the latter here – tunes that get great backing from Blo, who you probably know from their own material of the time – and who kick up some of the best tracks with a style so funky, the get plenty of instrumental space on the songs next to Christy's vocals! A few of the mellower cuts almost echo reggae at times, but with a particular twist – and titles include "Saboteurs", "Ikan Idomo", "Don't Let Me Down", "Rumours", "Ife", and "Nobody Can Stop You". LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Men Vol 1 – The West Coast Sound ... LP
Contemporary, Early 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A pretty darn great record – the first full length LP cut by Shelly, issued by Contemporary in the mid 50s, and pulling together side from sessions in 1953, some of which were issued previously, others of which appear for the first time here. The tracks are short and playful – very much in the "west coast sound" noted in the title, with Shelly playing the kit in a creative and lyrical way, joined by horn work by players that include Joe Maini, Bill Holman, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Enevoldsen, Art Pepper, and Bob Cooper. Titles include "Gazelle", "Sweets", "Mallets", "Fugue", "Grasshopper", and "Afrodesia". LP, Vinyl record album
