✨✧ CrashCrash ... LP
MC Wifon/GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 36.98
An overlooked Polish fusion combo from the 70s – one who recorded around the same time as Laboratorium and Extra Ball, but never got as much recognition on our side of the iron curtain! This album definitely lives up to the group's name – as the sound comes crashing in with a great blend of keyboards, trumpet, and saxes – nicely sharp and rhythmic, but never overdone – so that the group is able to find an organic flow, and avoid any cliches of the more rockish fusion world. Players include Zbigniew Cwojda on trumpet, Juliusz Mazur on piano and keyboards, Wladyslaw Kwasnicki on alto and soprano, and Stanislaw Zybowski on guitar – and titles include "Nite Sprite", "Akelei", "Trzy Po Cztery", "Baraka Sasa", and "Kakadu".

✨✧ Henryk DebichHoryzonty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The cover looks a bit pastoral, but the grooves here are totally great – funky sound library material from 70s Poland – originally created for a very unusual format! The music here was originally issued only on cassette, as a daily soundtrack for Polish drivers – groovy tunes that you can play while you're driving around, back and forth to work, or taking jaunts on the weekend – all in styles that are very much like American cop/crime soundtracks of the period, which must have made for a pretty exciting drive! Most tunes are funky, and mix strings with guitar riffs, keyboards, and other tighter jazzy elements – all put together with a nice late 70s sort of vibe. Titles include "Amfora", "Sen Kardynala", "Bungalow", "Knoiec Sezonu", "Misto We Mgle", ande "Zwierzenia". CD features bonus tracks "Laura", "O Kadzej Porze Dnia", "Dzien Ktory Przyjdzie", and "Kryminalny Obrazek". CD

✨✧ Henryk Debich/Orkiestra PRiTV1978 – City ... LP
GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy ... $32.99 36.98
A really cool collection of work from Polish sound library talent Henryk Debich – all 70s material that was designed to evoke the feel of the modern city – including many tracks that were issued in a special cassette series for daily commuters! The material was recorded at the Polish Radio studios, and mixes groovy 70s elements with fuller orchestrations – some disco rhythms at points, mellower soundtrack touches at others – keyboards often stepping out strongly from the fuller arrangements in a way that's a bit like Italian or UK sound library material at the same time! Titles include "UFO", "Obsydian", "Marmyszka", "City", "Choral I Final", and "Perforowany Parmezan". LP, Vinyl record album

EdenMiasto Szczesliwiych Ludzi – 1976 Polish Library Music From The WFDIF Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare instrumental outing from Eden – a Polish trio that first began as a blues-rock group, then moved into progressive territory, before hitting a lighter folksier style – none of which really comes close to the vibe of this material from a rare sound library session in 1976! There's fusion elements in the mix at times – like tight drums and funky flute – but the record also has a wider palette of colors, too – quite a surprise, given that the group is just a trio – as they find ways to evoke some larger studio ensemble sounds from time to time. As with all the great titles in this series, there's detailed notes in both Polish and English – and titles include "Sen", "Dzungla", "Scherzo", "Eksperyment Nr 1", "Daleka Podroz", and "Male Inwencje".

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1986. New Copy ... $16.99
80s electronic sounds from Poland – a record that's maybe slightly warmer than some of the cold wave underground of the decade, but not by much – and which is almost all instrumental, giving the whole thing a relatively timeless appeal! As you might guess from the image of the old PC on the cover, the electronics have a basic, early sort of digital vibe – and production is nicely understated too, so that even if a tune might be catchy, it's got a bit more edge than anything commercial that was coming from the west at the time! There's lots of early Sheffield modes at play here – and titles include "Wypij To", "Smakujesz Inaczej", "Szukam Sladu", "Dotykanie", and "Zrob Wsystko Bym". CD

Piotr FigielPiotr (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool production touches at points, which gives the record a very groovy late 60s sort of Euro feel! The vocal group Bemibek sing these cool wordless vocals on the tune "Bit Of Spring Bit Of Summer" – and guitarist Dariusz Kozakiewicz adds a nice degree of fuzz to a few other tunes too – tripping out nicely with Piotr's very fluid lines on the Hammond! There's a bit of strings on a few numbers, bringing in a nice cinematic feel – and titles include "Prelude In E Minor", based on the same Chopin changes as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B" – plus "Never On Tuesday", "Breakfast At Midnight", "Away I'll Go", "Absence", and "Piece Of Space". CD features bonus tracks – long versions of "Skrawek Przestrzeni" and "Nieobecnosc". CD

Jerzy Grunwald & En FaceSennym Switem (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Jerzy Grunwald looks a bit like a Polish Ziggy Stardust on the cover, and there's definitely some glammy touches on the album – but those are also mixed with some warmer touches from the En Face group, who back things up with a few acoustic touches, and sometimes bring some great harmony vocals to the proceedings! The whole thing's a real surprise from the Polish scene of the 70s – with production that almost has some sunny Cali touches, and an approach that's different than some of the heavier, proggier work of the period. Titles include "Memorial", "A Cherry Branch", "Man For Years", "You Came From Nowhere", "Our Horoscope", and "A Little Dreaming Will Do No Harm". CD features bonus tracks – "Ten Srebrzysty Patak" – and raw master tape versions of "Prelude" and "Memorial". CD

Piotr HertelW Sloncu I W Deszczu ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A selection of work for a Polish TV show at the end of the 70s – music that's partly in a familiar sound library mode, but which also has some great sound library touches too – a nice sense of variety that really makes for an overstuffed set! Some of these tracks are clearly scene-setting instrumentals, but some others are material that was performed by groups that would appear on the screen – and there's some very nice Rhodes-heavy moments on the collection, in styles that are unusual, and which move past the more familiar crime/cop modes of the 70s. The whole thing is a great testament to the overlooked soundtrack skills of Piotr Hertel – and the set features 20 tracks in all, with notes in both English and Polish! CD

✨✧ Jazz QPori Jazz 72 ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A famous live performance from this legendary Czech group – presented here for the first time ever, thanks to lost tapes unearthed at a Finnish radio station! The group are in amazing form throughout – stretching out on four long tracks that bristle with the strong imagination of keyboardist Martin Kratochvil – who uses the electric piano to spin out long lines that clearly draw inspiration from Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, but which at times maybe remind us a bit of Marc Moulin as well! The vibe is nicely spacious – similar to their albums of the time, but not as full fusiony either – and the rest of the group features Lubos Andrst on guitar, Vladimir Padrunek on bass, and Michal Vrbovec on drums. Titles include "Kartago", "Pori 72", "Slez", and "Pozorovatelna". CD

✨✧ Koman BandContinuation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The cover bills this one as having "stunningly rich Rhodes and brass driven cuts" – and we couldn't agree more, as the group features loads of sweet keyboards from leader Janusz Koman, set up in funky orchestrations with plenty of horns! The approach is a mixture of fusion and more focused jazz-rock – the latter showing up on the album's vocal cuts, which are all in Polish, but have this really universal appeal – no doubt because the rhythms are so great, and the presence of all that Fender Rhodes just makes everything sound that much more sweet! Other players in the group are noted, but the booklet features lots of other details in Polish and English – for titles that include "Okno Ciemnych Spraw", "Continuation", "Korbol", "Dom Zlej Dziewczyny", and "W Kraju Milczenia" – plus bonus radio tracks "Raga" and "Mucha Tse Tse".

Wladyslaw KomendarekArs Electronica 1989/1990 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Four long slices of electronic genius from Wladyslaw Komendarek – a Polish talent with techniques to rival some of the best British and American electronic experimenters from the decade before – but much less known, given that his music never got much circulation in the west! The album was created in Komendarek's own studio – on a variety of Roland, Korg, and Casio instruments – and the result is very dark and deep, almost like some project from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! The pieces appear here for the first time – all submissions to Ars Electronica in 1989 and 1990 – and titles include "Komputerowa Krew", "Gasnaca Plazma", "Magowie Galaktycznego Czasu", and "Pobudzenie Ludzi Do Zycia Mowie Alfa".

Wojciech KonikiewiczMuzyka Nowej Przestrzeni ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1993. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Really cool work from Polish musician Wojciech Konikiewicz – presented here with a title that means "music of new space" – and which represents a stunning shift into ambient territories after earlier work in rock and jazz! The music is as dark as the image on the cover – often lots of brooding low tones that have a more sinister vibe than some of the ambient experiments from the other side of the iron curtain at the time – maybe slightly in the mode of some of Brian Eno's music in the Thursday Afternoon generation, but also with some traces of more serious, academic explorations as well. The work was created with three different synthesizers and a bit of reverb – all recorded live, with titles that include "Ischri", "Theo", "Nox Atra", "Aniolowie W Burzy", and "Mistyczne Swiatlo". CD features both volumes 1 and 2 of the original releases! CD

GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 38 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

A great celebration of the rich career of Polish soundtrack and sound library composer Andrzej Korzynski – a package issued on the 80th birthday of the artist, and which features well-collected tracks from four decades of recording, plus some unreleased material too! Korzynski's been championed in recent years for his unusual, offbeat sounds – and here, those qualities are mixed with groovier elements too – with a vibe that's almost like some of the best work from French soundtrack maestro Francois DeRoubaix – who had a similarly great ear for electronic bits, odd instrumental flourishes, and other compelling elements that really keep things interesting! The package features 30 tracks in all, with a really lively combination of styles and elements – supported by full notes in English and Polish. CD

GAD (Poland), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the warmest work we've ever heard from Polish film composer Andrzej Korzynski – definitely different than his quirkier sounds from early in the decade, and done for a TV show that was set in the Polish countryside in the 30s! There's bits of electronic elements mixed in with fuller strings and woodwinds – and Korzynski demonstrates a great sense of feeling throughout – a bit like some of the French soundtrack composers of the time, and their ability to create really moving, evocative passages in sound – but without some of the more cloying Hollywood styles. A few pieces here appeared in other series as well – and the set features 20 tracks that include "Tajemnice", "Wioska", "Jaskinia", "Zabawy Dzieci", "Mustang", "Cmentarz", and "Duchy". CD

Andrzej KorzynskiMowa Ptakow (plus Lektury Uzupelniajce & Kosmos) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99
A more recent soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – put together for a film by the son of his old partner, director Andrzej Zulawski – and in a way that continues their cinematic legacy from previous years! The roots of the music like in older Korzynski recordings, but the songs are transformed a fair bit – often in ways that are very electronic and beat-heavy – with a sci-fi dance sort of vibe, and these tuneful passages that are a bit of a contrast to some of the composer's earlier work. Yet as always with Korzynski, nothing is ever too mainstream or commercial – and in a way, these shorter songs almost seem to answer a more popular idiom with a more personal vision. Titles include "Rower", "Dziewczyna Zla", "Smyzcki", "Opetanie Drugie", "Temat Etniczny II", and "Komputer". CD2 features 12 more bonus tracks – from a few decades of cinematic collaborations between Korzynski and Zulawski – then conclosed with 8 more tracks from the 2015 soundtrack to the film Kosmos. CD

A spare, electric soundtrack from Andrzej Korzynski – done for a mid 90s film directed by Andrzej Wada, and featuring lots of keyboards played by Korzynski himself! The music isn't as wild as some of Andrzej's previous records, but there's a nice sense of variety on the tracks – which are usually very spare, sometimes spooky, and often have added keyboards from Jerzy Suchocki! At times, these strange voices come through the mix – maybe dialog from the film, maybe the sound of spirits in the background – amidst titles that include "Balkon", "Chaos", "Samotnosc", "Wies", "Modlitwa", "Dzigi 1", "Pycha I Bogactwo", and "Jaka Jestes Piekna 2".

There's a lot of familiar electronic elements in the mix – guitar, bass, keyboards, and even some moogy electronics – but they're used in styles that are different from more familiar cop/crime of the time, and sometimes with this sci-fi sort of darkness that really makes for a compelling soundtrack all the way through – especially when a warmer number comes into the mix, as on two great Fender Rhodes mellow cuts! Titles include the great Rhodes tracks "Marta 1" and "Marta 2" – plus "Czolowka", "Szosa", "Biuro", "Retropepekcja 1", "Wielki Uklad", and "Winda".

Henryk KuzniakDzieciol ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked Polish soundtrack from the start of the 70s – scored for a comedy, but put together with a huge range of unusual and striking sounds! The record begins with a catchy theme – the sort that you'd hear in a Neil Simon comedy a few years later – but by track three, things have already moved into these really noisy electronics, before shifting back to a processed harmonica theme, moody mellow trumpet lines, jazzier bits, and other really amazing sounds! Composer Henryk Kuzniak claims to have thought about his work in terms of color, not notes or melody – and you can definitely hear that on the record – as each track is almost a mini painting in sound, often with some unusual processing to make familiar sounds very unusual. There's a few straighter, groovier themes in the mix – which balances things out in a really great way – and titles include "Bede Tego Niedlugo Potrzebowal", "Makrele W Tomacie", "Nie Mam O Kogo Byc Zazdrosny", "Ja Sobie Wypraszam Pani Misko", and "Grajmy W To".

Early work from the Polish jazz scene of the postwar years – by a cool combo that features two key players who'd really explode in decades to come! The group features excellent work on tenor and flute from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, and vibes from Jerzy Milian – both two of our favorite players from the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s, already sounding great here in the company of pianist Benon Hardy – on a series of recordings that have lots of other modern jazz elements in the mix! The other players aren't listed, but there's clearly drums and bass at play – plus occasional other touches – and the style is maybe a bit like Swedish modern of the 50s, but with some deeper tones from Wroblewski, and a hard-hitting vibes approach that's a bit like that of the Belgian player Fats Sadi. Titles include "Bandoska In Blue", "Do Widzenia", "Maracca", "Moto Cross", "Medium Swing", "Figlarny Mosorozec", and "Milion Zlotych". CD

Spacious fusion from 80s Poland – a nice little set that's got a vibe that's more laidback and flowing than some of the more jamming electric material of the 70s – which also seems to make things a bit more funky and soulful too! Many of the tracks start out in a nicely spare sort of way – finding the right energy, then building a groove – and working with instrumentation that's often much more in a 70s mode than some of the thinner electric elements that other fusion scenes were using elsewhere in the world! Zbigniew Lewandowski leads the group on drums and keyboards – and the rest of the lineup features Piotr Baron on tenor, Andrzej Olejniczak on soprano sax, Pawel Scieranski on guitar, Andrzej Przybeielski on trumpet, and both Mieczyslaw Jurecki and Krzysztof Scieranski on basses.

Killer large group work from Polish jazzman Jerzy Milian – tracks recorded in East Berlin during the 70s, all with a style that mixes together the best modes of soundtrack funk with some of the groovier styles of the MPS big band scene! Milian's a vibist, but also has a great ear for larger charts – and these tunes really step out with full, forceful grooves – often a bit of electric bass at the core, to kick things up nicely – while the horns provide all these explosive colors up top! There's plenty of unusual sonic elements too – that great ear that made Milian such an important modern jazz musician in the 60s, still very much able to explore some of the farther reaches, even when keeping things groovy – as you'll hear here on a set of 16 tracks that include "Kung Tanza", "Mentro De Londres", "Carefree Guy", "Hausdrachen", "Tanz Des Schmiedes", "Woila", "Jerzy Und Gunter", and "Lauf Zur Kasse".

Some of the funkiest work we've ever heard from Polish vibist Jerzy Milian – a series of late 70s recordings that have him working with a larger ensemble in a very groovy mode! The approach is sound library or soundtrack funk at some points, but also almost gets a bit disco at others – with Jerzy using his vibes like Vince Montana in Philly! There's wordless vocals on most tracks, and other instrumentation includes keyboards and clavinet, tenor, alto, and flute – mostly with a tight ensemble feel overall. At points, the music is in the spirit of the funky big band work on MPS Records from the early 70s – and titles include "Sobowtor", "W Zaulku", "Spiew Langusty"," Robot Autokrata", "Komu Moge Dac Swoj Czas", "Samum", and "Solaris II".

A really cool Polish group from the early 70s – one who only issued a 7" EP at the time, but who finally get their full due here, in a set that brings together other material recorded for Polish radio! The approach is great – a bit in the folk funk mode, with a female singer in the lead, next to well-placed basslines, and nice use of flute next to guitar and keyboards – all pretty light, so that the rhythms and the vocals take the core, often with jazzy inflections that are mighty nice!

Fantastic work from a saxophonist we're hearing here for the first time ever – Boguslaw Rudzinski, who recorded this set in 1963 – right at the same time Krzystof Komeda and his generation were opening up doors in modern jazz on the Polish scene! Rudzinski is maybe a bit more inside that Komeda or Tomas Stanko, but has this really great edge in his tenor, and a way of coming up with songs that manage to swing, but open up new ideas too – most penned here by pianist Krzystof Sadowski, an artist we do know and love – and who really shines in the group here alongside the guitar of Janusz Sidorenko, bass of Janusz Rafalski, and drums of Wladyslaw Jagiello. The material was recorded for a sound library, and never issued at the time – and Boguslaw plays a bit of clarinet, too – but with a modern Tony Scott sort of edge. Titles include "Casanova", "Messa", "Rockin Blues", "Epitex", "Silikonia", and "Unitron". CD

Seminal funky rock from 70s Poland – recorded by a hard-jamming group who also had plenty of fusion in the mix! The guitars are clearly in the lead here – strutting out next to some tight and frenetic work on drums – but the album's also got a fair bit of keyboards too, including Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and minimoog – all dancing next to the guitars on the album's best tracks. There's a bit of vocalizing from time to time, but the album's really mostly an instrumental affair – one that's more on the rock side of the spectrum, but which has plenty to offer if you're a fan of harder-jamming European fusion from the time! Titles include "Oddech", "Taniec Bulibara", "Palamakia", "Janek", "Wladkowa Kolysanka", and "Garbusek". CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks from radio sessions – and titles include "Debiut Kety", "11 Traktow", "Renia", "Podroz", "Metaxa", "Jak Bylo Tak Bylo Aloe Bylo", and "Cierpiarz". CD

✨✧ SBBMemento Z Banalnym Tryptykiem (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The final album from SBB – a bit different than their trio efforts of the 70s, but equally wonderful all the way through! There's a slightly more spacious vibe going on here – symphonic prog, but without the symphony – just an expanded quartet lineup that uses their extra guitar to really great effect, making the record explode with a new sense of color that the group didn't have on previous efforts. As usual, there's' one side-long cut – the title track – and that one really opens up in a rich array of keyboard lines, really showing the group at their height. Titles include "Strategia Pulsu","Moja Ziemio Wysniona", "Trojkat Radoscie", and "Memento Z Banalym Trtyptykiem". CD features bonus tracks – a live improvisation on "Memento", a live version of "Wish", and the original demo of the title track. CD

✨✧ Jozef SkrzekViator (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 90s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The cover's almost got a 4AD sort of look to it – and that might be a good way to approach the music of Jozef Skrzek here – as it hits on the more meditative side of that British label in the second half of the 80s – as Jozef creates all these spare, keyboard-heavy instrumentals that have a nice current of darkness! In a more mainstream setting, the work might have gotten too polished and sentimental – but there's a nicely personal touch here, as of Skrzek is working post-cold wave, warming things up slightly, but never losing too much of that individual quality that would make things stand out. The CD features 20 tracks from the original recording – plus three bonus tracks too! CD

GAD (Poland), 2021. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
New work from legendary Polish prog group SBB – working here with added orchestrations, at a level that really helps bring back their music with a heck of a lot of force! SBB always had a wonderfully complex quality to their sound – different than some of their Western European contemporaries, but with an equal ability to hit harder, more straightforwardly rocking moments when needed – which here make for a great blend with the larger orchestrations give them support – adding new currents of drama, and making this older group sound a heck of a lot better than you might expect! Titles include "Ciecie", "Freedom With Us", "Memeto Z Banalnym Tryptykiem", "Going Away", "Odlot", and "Walkin Around The Stormy Bay". CD

Adam SlawinskiSkok (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare jazz soundtrack from the 60s Polish scene – quite different than other film scores of the period, with a vibe that feels maybe more like some of the French new wave soundtracks, or some of the jazzier material used in early 60s Italian films! The players aren't listed, but the presentation is superb – a larger ensemble, but with standout solo moments on trumpet, alto, and flute – moving between tunes that have a lively, almost bossa nova vibe – and others with a gentler, warmer spirit. This set marks the first time the material has ever been issued away from the film – pulled from recently-located tapes – and titles include "Skok 1", "Bossa Nova 2", "Zniwa", "Molo", "Final", "Noc", "Walc", "Milosc", "Plaza", and "Pokoj".

Zygmunt WicharyZygmunt Wichary (10 inch LP) ... LP
GAD (Poland), Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Hard-swinging trad jazz from the Polish scene of the postwar years – in a style that was as revolutionary to the Soviet-controlled culture as its later modern jazz and fusion moments! The group here is led by pianist Zygmunt Wichary, and works with a frenzied spirit that's a lot more intense than most American trad recorded during the same period – maybe this urgency to get the message across, or just the kind of outside presence that graced some of the American jazz world in its early years. The group also features Piotr Kott on cornet, Bruno Buczek on trombone, Bronislaw Gesikowski on guitar, and Miroslaw Wojcik on clarinet – and there's also a female singer on a few tracks too. Titles include "Sing Sing Sing", "There'll Be Some Changes Made", "Somebody Stole My Gal", "Struttin With Some Barbecue", "Miala Baba Koguta", and "Czarna Kawa". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet fusion sounds from early 80s Poland – some really wonderful music cut under the leadership of guitarist Wieslaw Wilczkiewicz, who works here with to larger ensembles that are awash in reed lines, keyboards, and a bit of strings! The expanded format almost makes the music feel like soundtrack jazz at points – or at least that late 70s variety that was showing up in the US, as blacksploitation funk gave way to jazzy fusion – and like the best of that work, Wieslaw creates these cool tunes that are full of color, and very visual – never going too far over the top with any sort of rock-jamming fusion approach, and instead balancing the guitar lines in a nice way with the larger tonal backdrops. Titles include "Brass Key", "Ruda Magda", "In Blue Eyes", "Number Two Woman", "Pawelek", and "Varadero" – and a nice cover of "Hi Fly". CD

GAD (Poland), 1979/1980. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Never-issued material from Polish saxophonist Jan Ptasyn Wroblewski – material recorded at the end of the 70s for Polish Radio, done in a small combo mode that's a real back to basics change, after some of his larger projects of the decade! The setting is nice and lean – Jan on tenor, with guitar, bass, and drums – very much in the mode of an old Sonny Stitt session, with maybe some of the same production touches that Stitt was getting on his 70s records for Muse. Jan's great on both the ballads, which open up with a soulful vibe that's really beautiful – and the more swinging tunes, which are very much in a post-bop mode, and occasionally pick up some nice modal currents. The use of guitar by Marek Blizinski makes for some very different chromatic elements on the set – and titles include "Bebopem Go", "Slupy Milowe", "Rower Z Debu Czyli Dabrower", and "Czarna Chandra From Calcutta". CD features three bonus tracks – "Ciruka Z Rurki", "Dykteryka", and "Ugrysciorba". CD

A very jazzy set of sound library tracks from Poland – done in a mix of fusion and prog that's similar to some of that nation's great groups of the 70s – maybe no surprise, given that the guitarist in the group had also performed with the rock act Breakout! Yet here, the style is jazzier – a nicely urban style of instrumentation that echoes some of the American fusion modes of the period – but recorded, almost in secret, in the studio of Polskie Radio – with a lineup that includes keyboard, guitar, saxes, bass, and drums. All titles were penned by guitarist Winicjusz Chrost – and titles include "Im Im Im", "Chrzante", "Luba Balu", "Ma Ma Ma", "Juz Kiedys To Bylo", "Bez Tego I Owego", and "Pradziadek". CD

Prepare to step into a musical world you might never experience otherwise – served up here in a whole host of Polish work from the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – music that runs the gamut from folk rock, to Sunshine Pop, to some of the groovier styles of the psychedelic generation! Lyrics are all in Polish, but these groups have clearly picked up a lot from the Anglo world – especially the American scene on the west coast – and given that the nation was still very much in the grip of the Soviet era, it's amazing how much freedom some of these guys got to let down their hair and do their thing! The package features notes in English throughout, with reproductions of album covers and other details – and the set features 20 tracks in all, with work by Piotr Pastor I Slonce, Portrety, Roszina Pastora, Wawele, No To Co, Trubadurzy, ST 44, Skaldowie, Grupa Boom, and others.

An overlooked Polish fusion combo from the 70s – one who recorded around the same time as Laboratorium and Extra Ball, but never got as much recognition on our side of the iron curtain! This album definitely lives up to the group's name – as the sound comes crashing in with a great blend of keyboards, trumpet, and saxes – nicely sharp and rhythmic, but never overdone – so that the group is able to find an organic flow, and avoid any cliches of the more rockish fusion world. Players include Zbigniew Cwojda on trumpet, Juliusz Mazur on piano and keyboards, Wladyslaw Kwasnicki on alto and soprano, and Stanislaw Zybowski on guitar – and titles include "Nite Sprite", "Akelei", "Trzy Po Cztery", "Baraka Sasa", and "Kakadu".

The material was recorded at the Polish Radio studios, and mixes groovy 70s elements with fuller orchestrations – some disco rhythms at points, mellower soundtrack touches at others – keyboards often stepping out strongly from the fuller arrangements in a way that's a bit like Italian or UK sound library material at the same time!

A funky little rock band from 70s Poland – one who've got lots of choppy elements in the rhythms, which really gives the whole thing a universal sort of appeal – even if you can't understand the language of the lyrics! The style's a bit hard to describe, as there's clearly a bit of wit in the vocals at times – at least from what we can tell from the inflections of the female singer, who's got the vocal strength of Rita Lee during her most rocking years – often supported by backup vocals, which seem to be slightly ironic – and given superb instrumental backing with heavy drums, jazzy changes, and nice use of keyboards and saxophones too. Titles include "Zywiol Powietrza", "Hadja Troja Blues", "Zwiol Wody", "Weekend W Dolinie Jozefata", and "Jalocowy Blues".

The first we've heard of Polish composer Tadeusz Klimonda – and we're hoping it won't be the last, as the music here is extremely groovy and often quite funky – very much like some of the best 70s sound library material from other European scenes! Klimonda's got maybe a farther-reaching scope at times – at points very much in a familiar cop/crime sort of groove, but at other times filled with rich currents that really balance things out – and occasional really cool use of techniques that remind us of some of our favorite French talents. The set brings together 33 rare tracks from the 70s – including a few with the groovy Novi Singers – and titles include "Urozanjy Rok", "Supernowa", "M", "Swit", "Tobie Prawdy Nie Powiem", "Krol Sie Bawie", "Dumka O Potoku", "Faux Pas Show", and "Grazel".

The group were huge on the Polish live scene, and clearly have some amazing chops that must have been something to witness on stage – not an all-out hard rock or pre-metal approach, as they go for some more tuneful moments that allow them to space things out and shift their mood – although always with a bit of a current of darkness. Titles include "Poploch", "Tasmania", "Suahilli", "Brudna Muzyka", "Elektryczna Kokieteria", and "Spokojnie To Minie".

The album's a masterpiece of jazz-inspired creation throughout – three long tracks, all filled with sharp changes in time and mood, and graced with these wonderfully strong solos on guitar, Fender Rhodes, and Hammond – all without sounding too over-indulgent to lose their way! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the core appeal is the instrumentation, which is superb throughout – on titles that include "Pamiec W Kamien Wrasta", "Z Ktorych Krwi Krew Moja", and "W Kolysce Dloni Twych".

Fantastic work from SBB – a legendary Polish trio who were in an equal space between prog rock and fusion! All three musicians are incredibly skilled – clearly with the talents of jazz musicians, but set loose in much more freewheeling modes – although the strength of the record really comes from the tension between the two poles – especially as some of the less-electric moments could have strong jazz appeal. Antymos Apostolis serves up these fierce, frenetic, fuzzy guitar solos – while Jerzy Piotrowski plays some heavy Billy Cobham-like drums, and Josef Skrzek brings things together on piano, bass, moog, and even a bit of vocals. Titles include "Odlot" and "Wizje". CD features four bonus tracks from radio sessions – "Zostalo We Mnie", "Obraz Po Bitwie", "Odleciec Z Wami", and "Eroytk". CD

A new chapter in dub from Aswad – a set that points the way towards so many shifts that would take place in the music over the next few years – including the use of digital elements, and the rise of On-U Sound as well – all coming from crucial sounds created here on an Island Records classic! The set was mixed at Fallout Shelter, and has this really heady brew of deep dubby currents with occasional roots-inspired vocals – although those often get pretty abstracted into the mix. Instrumentation includes work from Vin Gordon on trombone, Brinsley Dan on guitar, Tony Gad on bass, and Drummie Zeb on drums – which often get this great splashy sound in the production. Titles include "Dub Fire", "Flikaflame", "Truth", "Bammie Blow", "Tuffist", "Shining Dub", "Zion I", "Natural Aggression", and "Ghetto In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as there's no vocals, and instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic – with lots of keyboard lines throughout, peppered with guitar, alto, tenor, and trumpet – yet the rhythmic changes are very different from familiar fusion, as is the role of the instruments – which don't always get solo space, because they're all so tied to the groove! The whole thing's got an upbeat, freewheeling vibe – sounds filled with plenty of joy and rhythm – and titles include "Tipi Fanm", "Doubout Pou Gade", "Syka", "Marie Blanche", and "Vini Coute E Tann".

Rhythms are built from lots of sampled live jazz passages – so there's an acoustic warmth throughout, even when things are processed – and there's enough live jazz instrumentation to keep a spontaneous feel in the music as well.

"In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle. Titles include "Termination", "My Mirage", "Flowers & Roses", and "Most Anything You Want". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

RGE/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Spare and jazzy samba work from the team of Paulinho Da Viola and Elton Medeiros – a beautiful illustration of the genre at its simple best – carried off with no pretension and a wonderful sense of grace! Instrumentation is heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – and also includes bits of flute or trombone – all used lightly, but to provide some jazzier inflections over the top of the vocals – in a way that keeps the tunes dancing along lightly and beautifully. Elton and Paulinho alternate vocals from track to track – and sometimes do so on the same tracks, but in medley-styled format. Titles include "14 Anos", "Arvoredo", "Sofreguidao", "Perfeito Amor", "Minha Confissao", "Depois De Tanto Amor", and "Samba Original". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Iron ButterflyUnconscious Power – An Anthology 1967 to 1971 (Heavy/In A Gadda Da Vida/Ball/Live/Metamorphosis/Fillmore East/bonus tracks) (7CD set) ... CD
Atco/Eclectic (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
A monstrous assortment of work from Iron Butterfly – one of the key groups in helping the American scene move from psych to hard rock at the end of the 60s! First up are mono and stereo mixes of Heavy – a record that's not nearly as well known as their classic In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida – but which has a very similar vibe all the way through! The songs are a bit shorter, but these guys really manage to do a lot with a little – using lots of brooding bass right up from the bottom, to create a blueprint for hard rock imitators in years to come – none of whom were able to match these guys' simple, direct approach – and their optimistic sense of power in their music. Many numbers often have this vocal interplay that really works wonderful with the fuzzy guitar lines – and titles include "Possession", "Unconscious Power", "So Lo", "Look For The Sun", "Stamped Ideas", "Fields Of The Sun", and a nice fuzzy funk version of "Get Out Of My Life Woman". Next is the stereo mix of In A Gadda Da Vida – the album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years later! "In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle. Titles include "Termination", "My Mirage", "Flowers & Roses", and "Most Anything You Want". Next is the stereo mix of Ball – a killer classic from Iron Butterfly – a group who always had way more to offer than their hits, as you'll find out when dipping into this full length set! The album's worth it alone for the organ lines – which kind of take off from the territory of The Doors, but are often more unusual – and mixed with vocals that can have an eerie sensibility, but without ever sounding indulgent! The music's not pop psych, but it's also never too full of itself – and titles include "In The Crowds", "In The Time Of Our Lives", "Soul Experience", "Lonely Boy", "Belda Beast", and "Filled With Fear". Next are mono and stereo mixes of Live – great live document of the heady power of Iron Butterfly – with titles that include "You Can't Win", "Are You Happy", "In A Gadda Da Vida", "Filled With Fear", and "In The Time Of Our Lives". Next is Metamorphosis – a record that's not a complete metamorphosis for Iron Butterfly, but one that definitely has the group stretching out with even more force and confidence than before! The group were maybe one of the few to come to hard rock via psych, instead of the blues rock path that so many others took at the time – and that difference is key here, as the songs really resonate with the potential for trippiness, but have this great sense of focus – one that makes the vocals sound even more potent than ever. There's still plenty of great organ work too – and titles include "Free Flight", "Shady Lady", "Best Years Of Our Life", "Slower Than Guns", and "Stone Believer". The set also features the 2CD 1968 Fillmore East set – an unreleased live performance from Iron Butterfly – one that captures the group at their late 60s height, in front of a very heady crowd at The Fillmore East! The recording quality is great – very clear, and different than the group's studio albums – with maybe even a bit more focus on the vocals of Doug Ingle, and the guitar lines of Erik Brann – in a way that lifts them out of the bottom sound a bit more, and presents the group in a whole new sort of focus! Plus, the brief patter from the stage also really helps us get an idea of how a trippy band like this could hold such great sway over a crowd at the time – energy that doesn't seem to stop at all, through the 2CD set's presentation of material from four different shows, on two nights of recording. Titles include "Are You Happy", "Stamped Ideas", "Fields Of Sun", "You Can't Win", "Unconscious Power", "My Mirage", "Her Favorite Style", "Possession", "Iron Butterfly Theme", and the mighty "In A Gadda Da Vida". CD set also features more tracks from singles, new remastering, a poster, and a big booklet of notes! CD

✨✧ Grachan Moncur IIIAco Dei De Madrugada (One Morning I Woke Up Very Early) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Essential stuff – and one of a few albums recorded for BYG/Actual by trombonist Grachan Moncur III – some of his best work after his initial classics for Blue Note! The album features Moncur fronting a European rhythm section – performing one side of interpretations of Brazilian folk tunes: "Aco Dei De Madrugada" and "Ponte Lo"; and another of two originals: "Osmosis" and "Tiny Temper". Anyone familiar with Moncur's style can't help but appreciate his coloristic slides and slurs, or his marvelous textural splashes of tone, or his individual phrasing, shaped more by his unique vision than any standard trombone slide or valve brass tradition. While his wonderful Blue Note sides were very modernist, these BYG sessions find Moncur at his most expansive – more groundbreaking work from one of our favorite "new thing" artists!

Whalen's in the lead on Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet, and other keys – and the group's got some might strong drums on most numbers, which match up with the intense guitar work from Glenn Alexander, Jon Durant, and Frank DeBretti, and a mixture of saxes and flute from Bob Magnuson.

The set begins with Adolfo working through some instrumental passages, then Saboya slides in and warms the tunes up nicely with her great vocals – boldly soaring one minute, then dropping back into more intimate lyrics the next.

Two top trumpet talents – coming together beautifully on this groovy late 70s set! Both Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela had a big rise to fame in the 60s – Herb, for his Tijuana Brass albums on A&M – and Hugh, for the way that he brought South African jazz currents to the American soul mainstream! Given that both had strong presence on the Cali scene in their time, the pairing here is a great one – and works well with some larger jazz backings that color things out in a mix of soul, fusion, funk, and some slight South African touches. Other players on the set include Lee Ritenour and Arthur Adams on guitars, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, James Gadson on bass, and Hotep Cecil Bernard on piano – and titles include "Skokiaan", "Moonza", "Lobo", "African Summer", "Ring Bell", and "Happy Hanna".

Omega, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $68.99
There's two sorts of heavenly bodies on the cover – but the real charms of the record lie inside, as the set's overflowing with incredible early theremin recordings! The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner – a different variation on the incredible post-war electronic instrument! The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors! Titles include "Misty Moon Blues", "Out Of This World", "Holiday On Saturn", "20th Century Venus", and "Up To Jupiter". LP, Vinyl record album

Bouncy, bubbly soul from Vernon Burch – one of his stone dancefloor classics from the 70s, served up with a groove that never quits! Burch is one of the few who can make a clubby set sparkle with the more personal qualities of a mellower soul album – and this excellent set is a great example of his style at the time. Production is by James Gadson, who also plays funky drums in the small backing combo – along with keyboards from Michael Thompson and guitar from Burke himself. Titles include the slightly bizarre transgender tune "Sammy Joanne (One Half Woman One Half Man)" – but other numbers are all pretty great, and include "Get Up", "Arrogant Lady", "Once Again In My Life", "Never Can Find The Way", and "For You".

The accordion has all these cool chromatic elements – similar to the way the instrument could be recorded at its best by the MPS label – and titles include "The Dreaded Lergy", "Uncle Horsley Writhes Again", "Waterbed", "Sunnyside Beach", and "Lush Life".

Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! The album features a fantastic version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes.

This raw batch of gems is all pulled from the Fowley vaults – and features a host of indie singles recorded in LA between his bigger bursts of fame – some with Kim in the lead, lots more with lesser-known talents all given Fowley's forceful treatment in the studio – a push forward that makes just about every track here sparkle like some long-lost garage rocker or weird novelty number. Norton provides very detailed notes that are as much a musical journey as the cuts themselves – and titles include "The Knight In Shining Armor" by Knights Of The Round Table, "Kalani Honey" by John Paul Jones, "Young & Wild" by Renegade Five, "Big Bad Wolf" by Kim Garry & The Rhythm Kings, "Watch Your Step" by Larry Green & The Rhythmaires, "Goin Away Baby" and "Golden Apples Of The Sun" by Grains Of Sand, "Wanted Dead Or Alive" by The Rogues, "Moses" by Navarros, and "The Trip", "Astrology", and a rare radio spot all by Kim Fowley.

The core album is instrumental – a wicked set of rhythms from The Crystalites, a group who have a vibe that's right up there with the best of the late 60s Kingston scene, but a groove that's definitely their own – almost a razor's edge to some of the rhythms, as they snap through some excellent late rocksteady/early reggae modes! Harriott produced, and adds in all these cool touches and sounds that almost predate some of the later experimental modes of Lee Scratch Perry. Titles include "The Undertaker", "Bombshell", "Biafra", "The Bad", "Lady Madonna", "Fistful Of Dollars", "The Barefoot Brigade", and "Dr Who". 2CD set features 14 more instrumental tracks from The Crystalites – plus 27 more Harriott-produced numbers, including work by Rudy Mills, Junior Murvin, Keith & Tex, The Chuckles, Eric Donaldson, Pat Satchmo, Tinga & Ernie, and The Ethiopians.

CTI/BGO (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Two CTI label gems from vibist Milt Jackson – back to back on a single CD! Sunflower is proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the soulful modes he'd explored as a leader in the 60s. There's a wonderfully warm and chromatic feel to the set from the start – as Milt's vibes are set in fuller arrangements from Don Sebesky – with added instrumentation from Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Phil Bodner on reeds. The highlight of the album is a nice long take on "People Make The World Go Round", but it's all pretty sweet, and other titles include nice versions of "Sunflower" and "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life" – and Jackson's own "SKJ" and "For Someone I Love". Goodbye is classic work from vibist Milt Jackson – opening up his bag a lot for the 70s, in a way that makes for some wonderfully casual grooves! The album's not as moodily funky as some of Jackson's other CTI records, but it is a nice batch of laidback tunes played with a distinctly soulful edge – handled by a group that features Cedar Walton on piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Ron Carter bass, Steve Gadd drums – and some guest trumpet from Freddie Hubbard on the track "SKJ". Other titles include "Opus De Funk", "Detour Ahead","Goodbye", and "Old Devil Moon". CD

A fantastic debut from the James L'Estraunge Orchestra – a studio combo, but one who come together with this amazing mix of groove and sophisticated arrangements! The project is the brainchild of Ricky Reid – who you might know in his work with The Soul Renegades – and there's a richness to the album that takes us back to some of the first wave of really complicated, really beautiful sounds from the London scene years back – maybe like the music of Chris Bowden or Jessica Lauren, with just a trace of 4Hero in the way that Reid blends together fuller strings and horns with some tight rhythms at the core. There's plenty of great keyboards on the album – including some Fender Rhodes from Ricky – but the album's hardly just the usual beats-and-keys session, as there's a complex vision here that's way more than just dancefloor music. Yet there's also plenty of grooves – just served up with a depth that makes the album appealing in so many other ways too – on tracks that include "The Call", "Closer", "We Rise", "Me & The Bear", "Eventual Reality", "See You Tonight", "Autumn Falls", and "It Happened Before".

James plays keyboards, and other players include George Benson, Phil Upchurch, Stanley Clarke, Randy Brecker, Don Grolnick, and Ron Carter – on titles that include James' own "Chicago Theme", a great cover of "Midnight At The Oasis" with wonderful drums from Steve Gadd, who also kicks it nice and large on Laws' own "I Had A Dream". Other tracks include "Going Home", "I Had A Dream", and "Inflation Chaser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original gatefold pressing! Shrink is open very slightly on the seam, but is tight overall.)

Manhattan Jazz QuintetAutumn Leaves ... LP
King/Paddle Wheel (Japan), 1985. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A standard-setting record from the Manhattan Jazz Quintet – that strong return to acoustic modes that made the combo such a breath of fresh air in the 80s – at a time when so few jazz groups were content to just focus on doing their thing! The head genius here is pianist David Matthews – whose arrangements are as dynamic as you'd hear for a large ensemble, yet performed with razor-sharp energy by Lew Soloff on trumpet, George Young on tenor, Charnett Moffett on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – all players who get plenty of individual moments in the spotlight on the album's longer tracks. Titles include "Jordu", "Recado Bossa Nova", "Mood Piece", and "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert. Cover has some light aging along one edge, and in another corner.)

Busi MhlongoUrban Zulu (with bonus download) ... LP
MELT 2000/Matsuli (UK), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Groundbreaking work from Busi Mhlongo – a real shift in South American soul at the end of the 90s, almost as if the set was marking the new sense of pride and nation that was taking place at the tip of the continent! Mhlongo's vocals are amazing – expressive in familiar soul ways, but with a range that's really mesmerizing – served up with rhythms that roll along in styles that echo older musical modes of the nation, but leaner and more focused – as are the chorus vocals on most tracks too! Titles include "Uganga Nge Ngane", "Yapheli'Mali Yami", "We Baba Omcane", "Oxamu", "Zithinizizwe", and "Ngadlalwa Yindoda". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download.)
