Mestre Cupijo E Seu RitmoSiria ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
An incredible compilation of material by Mestre Cupijo and the musicians of Cameta – the Amazonian town where the Siria style was born! The always-great Analog Africa label turns to Brazil for this one – a nice step after their rich range of African reissues – given the nature of the material. The people of the region include many of African origin, and the music is an exciting mix of tropical rhythms and percussion, seemingly African-inspired horns, guitar and vocals. Mestre Cupijo recorded a half dozen records from the mid 70s to early 80s, capturing the time-honored regional style in a modernized setting, and this compilation puts some of the best of that material together in a really exciting set. Revelatory stuff! Includes "Mingau De Acai", "Mambo Do Martelo", Morena Do Rio Mutuaca", "Farol Do Marajo", "Cade O Anel?", "Ventinho Do Norte", "Pra Danca Meu Siria", "Passarinho Siriri" and more.

Hallelujah Chicken Run BandTake One ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
Early work Zimbabwe legends Hallelujah Chicken Run Band – a group that was an early showcase for the vocal talents of the equally legendary Thomas Mapfumo! The set's not just a Mapfumo showcase, though – as the sound here resonates strongly from the whole group – nice harmonies on many tracks – and completely wicked guitars – which often have a rhythmic, spindly, "plucked" electric groove inspired by the mbira – a sound that was enormously influential and will sound fresh forever! Those great guitar parts come from Joshua Hlomayi Dube and Elisha Josam – inspired by the mbira music that was so important at the time – and Mapfumo plays drums, too – plus many tracks have additional horns other elements from a loose group of fellow players. The set features some early material that was produced for the Teal label, and later 70s work – all of it warm, melodic and welcoming – and the sound quality is really great! Titles include "Mudzimu Ndiringe", "Kare Nanhasi", "Manheru Changamire", "Tamba Zimba Navashe", "Mutoridodo", "Sekai", "Gore Iro", "Tinokumbira Kuziva", and "Chaminuka Mukuri". CD

✨✧ VariousDiablos Del Ritmo – The Colombian Melting Pot 1960 to 1985 ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
One of the deepest digs we've ever seen into the rich array of grooves from Colombia – a double-length page that covers a much wider range of sounds than you might expect! Colombia's unusual amongst Latin American nations, in that it's got kind of a "crossroads" sort of role – a place where other South American sounds come into contact with music from North America, the Caribbean, and even Africa as well – resulting in some mighty heavy styles that are perfectly summed up on these 2CDs! The package is way more than just an armchair look at Colombia – and is heavy on the sorts of funk and offbeat grooves we've come to expect from the Analog Africa label – a key imprint in bringing the sounds of the globe to Anglo groove diggers like us. Rhythm is definitely at the core – as promised in the title – but the package also has plenty of great notes to help us understand the rich cultural history as well. Titles include "Calambre" by Conjunto Barbacoa, "Lumbalu" by Calixto Ochoa & Los Papaupas, "Schallcarri" by Grupo Abharca, "El Caterete" by Wganda Kenya, "Enyere Kumbara" by Julian Y Su Combo, "Wasamaye" by Wasamaye Rock Group, "Bajo El Troupillo Guajiro" by Sexteto Manaure, "Pegale A La Nalga" by Fuentes All Stars, "Juipiti" by Grupo Folclorico, "Shakalode" by Wganda Kenya, "Santana En Salsa" by Crecencio Camacho, "La Motilona" by Los Alegres Diablos, "Pajaro Madrugador" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "La Bulla" by Los Curramberos De Guayabal, "Busca La Careta" by Andres Landero, "La Cascada" by Pianonegro, "Eco En Stereo" by Sonora Dinamita, "La Veterana" by Peyo Torres, "Lluvia" by Sonora Tropical, and "Agoniza El Magadlena" by Ramiro Beltran. 32 tracks in all – and it comes in a great hardbound package with a 60-page booklet.

✨✧ VariousEdo Funk Explosion Vol 1 – Akaba Man/Sir Victor Uwaifo/Osayomore Joseph ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
They certainly got the "explosion" in the title right – as these tracks leap right out of the groove from the very first note – very heavy on percussion, and with a much starker, funkier sound than some other West African work from the early 80s! The tracks are all from the Edo region of Nigeria – a scene that was still hanging on to some of the leaner modes of the early 70s, while some of the work in Lagos was getting a bit more polished up – with a result that means that the drums are front and center in all these cuts, even when more modern instrumentation is being used – which makes for some highly rhythmic grooves that also earn the "funk" in the title too! As always with Analog Africa, the set list and notes are superb – and this package has a tighter scope than some of their others, as it focuses on the work of three main artists from Benin City – with titles that include "Africa Is My Root", "Who No Man", "Ororo No De Fade", and "My Name Is Money" by Osayomore Joseph; "Ta Gha Husimwen", "Popular Side", "Ta Ghi Rare", and "Ogbov Omwan" by Akaba Man; and "Aibalegbe", "Oviemama", "Skpaide No 2", and "Iranm Iran" by Sir Victor Owaifo.

VariousLa Locura De Machuca 1975 to 1980 ... CD
Discos Machuca/Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
The amazing legacy of a tiny Colombian record label – a small imprint, but a groundbreaking one as well – with a rich variety of sounds that you'll hear on this really wonderful collection! Discos Machuca was based in Barranquilla, a real crossroads of cultures, sounds, and styles – and the label balanced both conventional styles like vallenato and cumbia with more experimental, psychedelic productions – including localized variations on 70s African styles that really sound amazing! There's so much going on in this music – from offbeat instrumentation to very unusual production styles – often these weird little touches that can abstract the electric elements in the music while keeping the acoustic bits straight on the groove – with a mixture of both modes often influencing the vocals. Analog Africa really knock it out of the park with this one – and not only give us these sounds that we'd never hear otherwise, but also present the very vivid history of the label – in a huge package of tracks that includes "Monkey's Dance" by King Somalie, "Mosquita Muerta" by La Francachela, "Ayu" by Rito Latino, "Tamba" by El Grupo Folclorico, "Te Clavo La Mano" by La Banda Africana, "Wabali" by Conjunto Barbacoa, "A Otra Perro Con Ese Hueso" by El Grupo D'Abelard, "Caracol" by Grupo Bola Roja, "El Platano" by Myrian Makenwa, and "Long Live Africa" by Samba Negra.

VariousPop Makossa – The Invasive Dance Beat Of Cameroon 1976 to 1984 ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
You might know "Soul Makossa" – the worldwide hit by Manu Dibango that was covered by many folks, and sampled heavily in later years too – but this set takes a look at the deeper scene behind that famous groove, through a host of wickedly funky tracks from the late 70s scene in Cameroon! The tracks here are all upbeat, and not afraid to pick up a few influences from disco when they want – but they've also got a more loose, open sort of vibe – a wonderful flow that seems to set the scene for just about anything to happen over the course of the longer songs! Instrumentation and vocals are equally important here – especially the basslines and guitars – and the style of the work starts out in Dibango territory, but soon moves past into a range of very cool modes. As usual with Analogue Africa, the whole thing's way more than just a batch of songs, too – as the notes are huge, and really get at the special feeling of the scene – a world that we've never seen opened up this well. Titles include "More Love" by Pat Ndoye, "Mininga Meyong Mese" by Nkodo Si-Tony, "Ye Medjuie" by Emmanuel Kahe & Jeanette Kemonge, "Pop Makossa Invasion" by Dream Stars, "Nen Lambo" by Bill Loko, "Yaounde Girls" by Mystic Djim & The Spirits, "Nogon Engap" by Olinga Gaston, "Mussoloki" by Bernard Ntone, and "M'Ongele M'Am" by Eko.

✨✧ VariousSpace Echo – The Mystery Behind The Cosmic Sound Of Cabo Verde Finally Revealed ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Extraterrestrial synths and tight, dancefloor-ready grooves from Cabo Verde – compiled here on one the most mindblowing Analog Africa collections in years! The well-detailed, beautiful-illustrated notes (an always welcome feature in Analog Africa set) tells the story of a cargo ship full of Korg, Rhodes, Moog, Farfisa and Hammond synths and keyboards – bound for an 1968 expo in Rio – turning up on a Cabo Verde island instead, and the rest is history! There's a clarity and consistency in both sound quality and in the performances, track-by-track, that's pretty incredible. A big part of the consistency is Cabo Verde musical legend Paulino Vieira and his group Voz De Cabo Verde serving as the band on around half the material here, but the whole thing is great – just a killer mix of regional sounds with wild spacey instrumental accents! Titles include "Pinta Manta" by Antonio Sanches, "Dia Ja Manche" by Dioniso Maio, "Morti Sta Bidjacu" by Jose Casimiro, "Pontin Pontin" by Bana, "Mundo D'Margura" by Tchiss Lopes, "Po D'Terra" by Joao Cirilo, "Sintado Na Pracinha" by Americo Brito, "Djal Bal Si Camin" by Antonio Dos Santos, "Stebo Cu Anabela" by Abel Lima and more.

Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A mountain of music from the scene in Somalia during the 70s and 80s – all of it pulled from the vast archives of Radio Mogadishu, and showing a wonderful range of expression at the time! The music here is all pretty darn funky and soulful – as you'd expect from a collection on Analog Africa – but there's also some great criss-crossing of cultural elements taking place here, both in time and space – a shift in electric instrumentation from the 70s to the 80s, and an openness to other styles of rhythms too – even a bit of reggae and dub from time to time! Yet even when things are more straightly funky, they're never too straightforward – as the music bristles with all these unusual touches and sweet instrumental twists and turns – always keeping things interesting throughout. As always with the label, there's a fantastic set of notes – a big booklet that also recounts the struggle to reissue this music, with a fair bit of Somali history and culture too – all in support of titles that include "Daraadaa Muxibo" by Dur Dur Band, "Sirmaqabe" by Iftin Band, "Godonimada Jira" by Bakaka Band, "Ladaney" by Dur Dur Band, "Hoobeya" by Shimaali & Killer, "Baayo" by Mukhtar Ramadan Iidi, "Hab Isii" by Omar Shooli, "Waakaa Helaa" by F Qazzim & Shareero, "Il Ooy Aniga" by Ifitin Band, "Geesiyada Halgamayow" by Bakaka Band, and "Check Up Your Head" by Mukhtar Ramada Iidi.

✨✧ Guy WarrenAfro Jazz ... LP
Columbia/Return To Analog (Canada), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A completely wonderful album from percussionist Guy Warren – a creative musician who made lots of great records over the years – but who maybe never topped himself after this gem from the late 60s UK scene! The set was done as part of the legendary Landsdowne Series for Columbia UK – and features Warren's percussion alongside some key Brit jazz talents – including Don Rendell on tenor and soprano saxes, Ian Carr on trumpet, Amancio D'Silva on guitar, and Michael Garrick on piano! Warren composed and arranged the whole thing, and brings in plenty of percussion too – but the album really gets its depth from the presence of these modern jazz giants – all of whom really shape the sound with wonderful contributions and some very strong solos. Titles include "Burning Bush", "I Love The Silence", "Africa Speaks India Answers", "Ours This Is Our Land", "Yaw Barima", "That Happy Feeling", and "Builsa". LP, Vinyl record album

Morwell Unlimited/Prince Far I & The ArabsA1 Dub/Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter IV (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Doctor Bird/Trojan (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A pair of rare dub albums – back to back in a single set, with bonus tracks too! On A1 Dub, Blacka Morwell serves up some massive dub – working at Channel 1, for an obscure album on Trojan Records – but maybe coming across with some of the richness of the Island Records generation! There's a fullness to the sound that's wonderful – top-to-bottom completely solid, and often highly focused on the rhythms, but also always using one key instrumental element on each cut – a bit of organ here, a weeping guitar there, or even an odd sonic element – always given center stage in the spotlight, and set apart from the rest of the mix in a really great way. Titles include "Downtown Rebel", "Well Crucial", "Different Style", "West Side Ranking", "Pressure Rock", "Blackboard Jungle", and "Waterpump Skank". Next is Cry Tuff Dub Encounter 4 – from Prince Far I & The Arabs – an almost seamless set of dub instrumentals, recorded at Channel One in 1981 – the underground Jamaican groove, but maybe given a slightly better sound quality overall – that good mix of indie and professional that was the Trojan Records calling card as the 70s moved on! A crisp upfront production style separates this one from some of its dub predecessors – but the record has a great analog dub sound, with many effects and instruments echoing in and out of the mix. Titles include "Lion Stone", "Foundation Stepper", "Sound Gesture", "Destruction Sound Battle", and "Stone African Ground". And if that's not enough, the whole thing features a whole CD of bonus material – rare tracks taken from the 12" Attack series by Trojan Records – with cuts that include "Jammin For Survival" by Jammy's At The Controls, "Bali Hi Special" by The Sowell Radics, "Fuss & Fight Dub" by Eddie Fitzroy, "Ball Of Fire" by Bim Sherman, "Stand & Look Dub" by Fat Man All Stars, "Caring For My Sister" by Scientist & Roots Radics, "Won't You Come On (dub)" by Witty's All STars, "Babylon Wrong Dub" by Ashanti Waugh, and "Cool Pon Your Corner Version" by Barry Brown.
