Dur Dur BandDur Dur Of Somalia – Vols 1 & 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1986/1987. Used 2CD ... $14.99
80s sounds from the Somali scene – but served up with a lean, raw quality that feels a lot more like 70s funk overall! In a decade where some of the other scenes on the continent were using more beats, electronics, and keyboards – Dur Dur Band still keep things plenty live, and plenty loud – using these massive basslines that dip with influences from Latin and Jamaican music – while also hitting hard with a sharper funky sound on the guitar and drums, and also hitting some cool modes on the reeds that have a strong East African vibe! The production is as raw as the instrumentation – and the whole thing's got a gritty edge, even when a few moogy keyboards come into the mix. Titles include "Dab", "Ohiyee", "Yabaal", "Heelo", "Doon Baa Maraysso", "Bubba Aaka, "Aduun Hawli Kama Dhamaato", and "Keen Gardaran". CD

VariousAfrican Scream Contest 2 – Benin 1963 to 1980 ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $22.99
A long-overdue second chapter of the African Scream Contest compilation – the first of which introduced a huge new audience to the funky sounds of Benin in the 70s! This set is every bit as fantastic as the first – filled with tunes that have these darkly brooding, heavy funk components – but also take off in all these wonderful directions too – sometimes more dynamic in the melodies, sometimes with slight currents of exotica – but almost always sounding very different from Nigerian grooves during the same generation! Production is often nice and raw – which really opens up the depth of these tunes – and as before, there's a huge set of notes and images that really illuminate these wonderful sounds! Titles include "A Min We Vo Nou We" by Les Sympathics De Porto Novo, "Dja Dja Dja" by Stanislas Tohon, "L'Enfance" by Elias Akadiri & Sunny Black's Band, "Asaw Fofor" by Ignace De Souza & The Melody Aces, "Paulina" by Black Santiago, "Baba L'Oke Ba'Wagbe" by Super Borgu De Parakou, "Moulon Devia" by Orchestra Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou, "Nounignon Ma Kpon Midji" by Antoine Dougbe, and "How Much Love Naturally Cost" by Gnonnas Pedro & His Dadjes Band.

✨✧ Amara ToureAmara Toure 1973 to 1980 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The near-complete recorded legacy of Amara Toure – a singer who made an incredible splash on the Cameroonian scene of the 70s, but who only managed to make a handful of singles and one full length LP! The material is all tremendous, though – as Toure sings with this rich, deep sound that's part familiar Senegalese, but also inflected with lots of Latin and Cuban modes too – no surprise, since Amara got his start in the legendary Afro-Cuban group Le Star Band De Dakar! By the time of these sides, though, he'd left Dakar – and was working in this amazing style that's extremely haunting, and often echoed by a tenor sax solo on the recordings – with a quality that's as evocative as some of the Ethiopian classics of the time, but carried off in a different rhythmic style. This much-needed set features six singles recorded by Toure in Cameroon in the mid 70s – including "Temedy", "Lamento Cubano", "Cuando Llegare", and "Fatou" – plus his one full album recorded in 1980 in Gabon with Orchestra Massako – with titles that include "Africa", "Salamouti", and "Tela".

✨✧ Guy WarrenAfro Jazz (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Columbia/Return To Analog (Canada), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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
(Individually numbered limited edition of 500!)
