Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some smoking horn parts that are a lot more American soul and funk than the usual 70s African groove! The whole thing's stunning all the way through – a record that totally informs an understanding of its generation, yet in ways that no other record can touch. Wonderful all the way through, with not a bit of filler – and all cuts are right on the money for any fan of African funk! Titles include "Toffie", "Fa No Dem Ara", "This Hustling World", "Kwaakwaa", and "Akoko Ba". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gyedu Blay Ambolley & Zantoda Mark IIIControl ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
A rare one from Ghanaian legend Gyedu Blay Ambolley – fully in control of a far-reaching funky trip with his Zantoda Mark III group! Control carries on with the most treasured aspects of Ambolley's mid 70s work – the raw percussion, punchy horns and charismatic vocals – but it's tripped out in really cool ways with the addition of some spacey keys and synth. There's a lot to be said for how elegantly the funky Ghana soul instrumentation and spiritual lyricism blend with bubbling spacey touches, making this his most unique effort in that respect, but it's still funk and soul to the core. Includes "Control", "Woye De Adofo", "Don't Go" and "Mercy Kae Dabi" (both with Eddie Jackson singing), "Take Am Soul" and "The Message (God Is Love)". LP, Vinyl record album

Strut (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Really raw work from this Ghanaian group that emerged from jamming on the streets of Accra – a core quartet that mostly features tuned percussion and stringed instruments – used in a highly rhythmic way along with the vocals! The lineup features kologo, goje, gome, dondo, and kpanlogo – used in these ways that often have the spare strings of the kologo and goje sounding as if they're electrified – sending out these sharp pulses that are really striking! At times, the producer adds in a bit of bass, guitar, or added percussion – but most of the sounds come from the raw interplay of the quartet – which is great enough on its own, even without the presence of a few guests from time to time – such as the legendary Gyedu Blay Ambolley. Titles include "Teach Me", "Fauziah", "Minus Me", "Do Good", "Carry Me Go", "Killer Fear Die", and "Tanga". CD

✨✧ VariousMr Bongo Record Club – Vol 5 (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
The Mr Bongo Record Club just seems to get hipper and hipper as the volumes go on – to a point where this fifth edition in the collection is overflowing with tracks that we might never have heard otherwise! Plus, the scope of sounds here is really great too – a mix of styles from around the globe, but also not a "world music" styled compilation – as the selection handled in a way that more shows that funk and soul are really universal – something we learned from the folks at Mr Bongo many years back! There's even a few Japanese tracks too, and one or two contemporary surprises – in a set list that include "Ready For War" by Eamon, "Duplo Sentido" by Tete Da Bahia, "Romance" by Hiroshi Suzuki, "Nebine" by Malouma, "Sing A Song" by Willy Chirino, "You Are Delicious" by Mave & Dave, "Oooh Baby" by Pamoja, "Tiba Kamo" by Philip Malela, "Rise Up (disco mix)" by Tyrone Evans, "I Hate Telling A Lie" by Stimela, "Let's Be Happy (disco mix)" by Gyedu Blay Ambolley, "Kakashi" by Yasuaki Shimizu, and the original version of "I Believe In Miracles" by Mark Capanni – later made famous by The Jackson Sisters!

✨✧ KOGZone 6 – Agege ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness/Pura Vida (France), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever solo album from Kweku of Ghana – who you've likely heard as KOG on projects with Nubiyan Twist, Onipa, and others – really sounding great here with a colorful vibe that really fits the image on the cover! The rhythms percolate nicely throughout – lean beats mixed with live percussion and some jazzier instrumentation – only occasionally hitting more familiar West African modes, as KOG borrows bits of influence from his colleagues in the UK – and works in all these cool currents of contemporary soul as well! Titles include "Mayedeen", "Like A Tree", "Shidaa", "Lord Knows", "Ayinye", "Ebeneezer", and "No Way" – which features guest work from the legendary Gyedu Blay Ambolley! CD
