Geraldo PinoBoogie Fever ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Late 70s work from Geraldo Pino – the artist who was credited as being one of the first musicians to bring the styles of James Brown to play in West Africa – still grooving hard here at the other end of the decade! The album's got a clubby vibe in parts – the "boogie" that you'd expect from the title – but like some of the best Nigerian efforts of this time, there's a very freewheeling interpretation of the style – so that things are often plenty offbeat, even when you think they're heading into familiar territory – filled with the criss-crossing of rhythms and cultures we love in Pino's other music, and recorded with a very gritty production style overall! The whole thing's plenty damn funky – in a way that matches the best energy of some of the more underground New York club 12" singles of the period – and titles include "Ganja", "Shake Shake Shake", "African Hustle", "Dance For Love", and "Boogie Fever".

Geraldo PinoHeavy Heavy Heavy (Let's Have A Party/Afro Soco Soul Live) ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1970s. Used ... $11.99
They certainly got the title right on this one – because the groove is heavy heavy heavy, and the set is one of the funkiest African collections we've ever stocked! Geraldo Pino's often credited as the man who inspired part of the Fela sound of the 70s – and Pino was one of the first Africans to pick up the styles that James Brown was forging in the 60s, and recast them into a longer, more jamming mode that would eventually form the sound of Afro Funk. This set's the first collection we've ever seen of Pino's work – and it's a long-overdue set that adds a whole new chapter to the history of Afro Funk! Many tunes have skittish electric piano and organ riffing along with heavier percussion and guitar – in a way that creates a really unusual groove, and one that grabs our ears instantly! 12 tracks in all – including "Afro Soco Soul Live", "Let Them Talk", "Heavy Heavy Heavy", "Africans Must Unite", "Shake Hands", "Power To The People", "Let's Have A Party", "Right In The Centre", "On The Spot", and "Black Woman Experience".

Geraldo Pino & The HeartbeatsLet's Have A Party ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Let's Have A Party, indeed – as it's hard not to celebrate when a record sounds this great! The album's a boiling batch of Afro Funk numbers from the legendary Geraldo Pino – a key influence on the sound of Fela, and an artist with a sound that's got a bit more James Brown in his groove than some of his African contemporaries! Tracks are all super-tight and madly-grooving – hitting a fast-vamping, hard-riffing style that clearly draws energy from the JB sound of the late King years – but which also has its own unique flavor, thanks to some other-worldly electric piano on most of the numbers! Lyrics are in English, and as catchy as they are political – and titles include "Heavy, Heavy, Heavy", "Let Them Talk", "Africans Must Unite", "Shake Hands", "Power To The People", and "Let's Have A Party".

✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Power 70 – Afro Funk, Afro Rock, Afro Disco ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of lesser-known gems from the 70s scene in Nigeria – music that's a great counterpart to better-remembered Afro Funk and soul from international giants like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade! This set digs deep, and is a nicelly expanded version of a set that Soul Jazz issued years back as a limited edition 7" single box for Record Store Day – presented here with more music, and a detailed set of notes – really getting at the special scene that was taking place in Nigeria at the time, as the nation was rising to the top of the African scene with a fantastic criss-crossing of musical modes! There's definitely plenty of the funk promised in the title, and the "rock" is usually of the funky kind with great guitar work – and a few later cuts even pick up the pace with a bit of disco, but more in the fast-funk mode, and hardly the slick stuff of the American scene. Titles include "Africans Must Unite" and "Shake Hands" by Geraldo Pino, "We'll Get Home" by The Wings, "E Ye Ika Se" by Alhagi Prof Kollington Ayinala, "Kassa Kpa Sama Kpa" by Colomach, "Beware" by MFB, "You Are The One" by Tony Grey & The Ozimba Messengers, "Single Boy" by The Wings, "Sugar Baby" by Don Bruce & The Angels", "Power To The People" by Geraldo Pino, "Igba Alusi" by Original Wings, "Dance Of The Elephants" by Sonny Okosunds Ozziddi, and "Oba Erediauwa I" by Sonny Okosuns.
