Walter Gavitt FergusonLegendary Tape Recordings Vol 2 – The King Of Calypso Limonense ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
Not the kind of calypso that was issued by the big American labels in the 50s – and instead, sounds that have a sound, style, and overall approach that's maybe a lot more similar to American blues from the rural scene! The tracks here are all pulled from the personal archive of Walter Gavitt Ferguson – recorded mostly at his home, on cassette, over the space of many years in which Ferguson was growing in international fame, even while never leaving the space of his island. Recording quality is nice and raw – of the sort you'd be more likely to hear from rural Mississippi or Georgia bluesmen in some 60s ethnographic project – and the guitar phrasing is as biting as Walter's delivery of the lyrics. Titles on this second volume include "Not A Pugilist", "Roberto Tour", "You Cannot Bathe A Puss", "Hoorah For Paula", "Lock Me Up Neighbour", "One Pants Tearing Off", "Gal Must Be Take Me For A Fool", and "All Going Up To Glory".

Malawian Madalitso BandWasalala ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $26.99
Malawian Madalitso are more of a duo than a band – Yobi Maligwa on babatoni and lead vocals, and Yosefe Kalenkeni on guitar and percussion – both working together with a beautiful sense of tightness and melody! The mix of stringed instruments is great – pulsating with an inherent sense of rhythm that only gets better once the vocals come into play, especially when Yosefe harmonizes along with the lead. The sound is spare and timeless, yet also very vibrant as well – on titles that include "Naphiri", "Vina Vina Malawi", "Nambewe", "Wasalala", "Moyo Wa Lelo", "Chinakulaka", and "Mita".

VariousLeve Leve – Sao Tome & Principe Sounds 70s/80s (with bonus download) ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Lively grooves from the islands of Sao Tome and Principe – two nations located in the gulf of Guinea – at a unique crossroads that makes for a really wonderful criss-crossing of styles and sounds! The nations are part of the older Portuguese colonial network, and share some sounds with the scene in Cameroon – but also bring in West African styles and some tropical elements from the other side of the Atlantic too – all wrapped together in the puxa style of the islands! The tunes are mostly lively, upbeat, and have strong basslines peppered with deft work on guitar – a mixture of merengue, Afro-Cuban, and highlife modes – but given a really unique spin as well, with qualities that are filled with joy and life on nearly every number. Titles include "Mado" and "Meu Di Ploco" by Conjunto Equador, "Mino Bo Be Quacueda" and "Aninha" by Africa Negra, "Corticao" and "Sun Male" by Sangazua, "Nga Ba Compensadora" by Pedro Lima, "Piquina Piquina" by Os Untues, "Tola Muandgi" by Sum Alvarinho, and "Taji Ocedo" by Conjunto Mindelo.

VariousSoul Sega Sa Vol 2– Indian Ocean Segas From The 70s ... CD
Bongo Joe (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing sounds from a scene we're just beginning to know – the sega music of the islands Mauritius, Seychelles and Reunion Island – all located in a very unique cultural cross-current in the Indian Ocean! The music here is often relatively spare and rootsy – guitars that are amplified, but with the rawness of early electric blues – matched by percussion that's stark, and often moving in rhythms that are relatively laidback – so that the snakier elements in the guitars and vocals are able to slide and move over the top in really seductively open ways! There's also occasional keyboards and other instrumental touches – the modes of the tracks here are relatively varied, but still really work well together – and as with the first volume, the whole thing's a huge musical discovery that's really opened up our ears. Titles include "Pas Bisin Batte Li" by Harold Berty, "Assez Pleure" by Los Fantasios, "Fair L'Amour Pas La Guerre" by Jean Claude Gaspard, "Zanguille 4 Coleurs" by Michelle Admette, "To Crier La Misere" by Claudio, "Trouloulou" by George Armel, "A Cause Sa Cyclone La" by Serge Lebrasse, and "Malheur L'Arac" by John Wirtz.

VariousCoolsville Vol 2 – Ten Inches Of Mean Sleaze & Kookie Far Out Bongo Blasters (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Hipster sounds from the pre-hippie years – tracks that were either recorded by beatniks, or which have a very cool beat-themed style to them – all pulled together from a range of rare recordings at the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s! The sound here is maybe what you'd guess from the very groovy cover – a bit of jazz, and a bit of wit as well – tunes that poke a bit of fun at the intellectual underground, especially as it collides with the more mainstream sound of rock and roll – served up here on a dozen fab platters that sound even better in the company of each other! The album's divided up into a "mean side" and "bongo beatin side" – and titles include "Jet Black" by The Shadows, "Bongo Beating Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, "Goatee" by Joey Warren, "Theme From Von Hutch" by Jerry Madison & The Spacemen, "The Toast" by The Champs, "Money Money" by Benny Joy, "Gargantua" by Piltdown Men, and "Back Beat No 1" by The Rondels.

VariousAll Back To Crampsville – Crate Digging In The Basement With Lux & Ivy ... LP
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $28.99
Nicely nasty tunes from the generation that inspired the music of The Cramps – that massive underworld of 45rpm and 78rpm singles in the 50s and early 60s – recorded at a time when just about anything was fair game to capture in the studio! The styles here vary as much as the huge selection of tracks on the set – which features 38 rare singles you'll likely not find otherwise, all put together with a wonderful sense of surprise that really keeps things interesting all the way through! This vinyl set brings together some of the best bits from the CD series on Righteous – with titles that include "Blah" by Sidney & The Chimps, "Bop Crazy Baby" by Vern Pullens, "Love Me" by The Phantom, "Hot Rod Rock" by Ed Byrnes, "Jungle Rock" by Hank Mizell, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Short Shorts" by The Four Winds & Their Teenage Friends, "Bongo Beatin Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, "Swamp Girl" by Kay Martin, "Shombolar" by Sherriff & the Revels, "Savage Girl" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "Trickle Trickle" by The Videos, "Proof Of Your Love" by Jackie Cannon, "Masai Rumble" by Harry Coons & Richard Campbell, and "Shook Shake" by Ken Davis.

✨✧ Slim Gaillard & Slam StewartSlim & Slam – The Groove Juice Special ... CD
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used ... Out Of Stock
During the late 30s and early 40s, the team of Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart cut some of the grooviest little records ever pressed on shellac! Slim had a crazy vocal style that was augmented by his tight guitar work – and Slam kept the whole thing rolling with a big warm bass, and with occasional comments directed in Slim's direction! The style of the music is part early R&B, part jazz vocal, and all hipster jiving and jamming! Slim had an influence on an entire century of hipsters – and this CD is the only one we've ever seen that does a good job of bringing together his early early work with good sound and notes on the material. The set includes 20 cuts in all, including a few unreleased ones – and titles include "Flat Foot Floogie", "Chicken Rhythm", "Matzoh Balls", "Bongo", "Dopey Joe", "A Tip On The Numbers", "Groove Juice Special", "African Jive", and "Ti Pi Tin".

Willie ColonEl Juicio ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used ... $9.99
Supposedly the end of Willie Colon's early "crime" career – as the title and cover imply that he's finally been brought to trial! Don't worry about Willie being beaten down, though, because the music on the album is every bit as fierce and powerful as ever – and features a number of long tracks that really stretch out in a highly percussive groove! The group's great – with Jose Mangual on bongos, Joe Torres on piano, and Milton Cardona on conga – as well as Hector Lavoe still in the lead on vocals. Titles include "Aguanile", "Pan y Agua", "Seguire Sin Ti", "Timbalero", "Pirana", "Ah Ah O No", "Si La Ves", and "Sonando Despierto". CD

Carmen McRaeWoman Talk – Live At The Village Gate ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A rock-solid swinger from the great Carmen McRae – working here in a live setting with a very cool combo! The group's more than just a trio – although it is grounded by excellent piano work from Norman Simmons – and the record features nice use of flute from Ray Bernstein, guitar from Joe Puma, and bongos from Jose Mangual – all of whom bring some additional instrumental flourishes that work perfectly with that amazing range that McRae was exploring in the 60s – a way of moving past some of the more traditional (but still great) recordings of the late 50s, to find a voice in her style that's almost conversational at times, and extremely powerful without ever overstating itself. The subtlety of Carmen's genius is something that still blows us away after all these years – and it definitely comes through here, on titles that include "Woman Talk", "Kick Off Your Shoes", "Run Run Run", "Look At That Face", "Feelin Good", and "The Sweetest Sounds". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl has a short click on "I Wish I Were In Love Again".)
