✨✧ Keith HudsonFlesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Mamba/VP, 1974. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of the crowning achievements of the legendary Keith Hudson – a record that was originally issued on his own tiny label, with very little circulation at the time – but a set that's gone on to become the stuff of legend, thanks to Hudson's revolutionary work in the studio! The record has a way of mixing the rough and the smooth, the sweet and the spacey – as Keith delivers some fantastic songs over sounds that were initially recorded in Kingston, then reworked and re-layered in London – at a level that maybe reflects all the subtle changes that were taking place in the global underground of Jamaican music, even at the same time that some of its bigger artists were starting to hit the charts. Chart fame is clearly not what Keith's going after here – as many of the tunes are spare, stripped-down, and as personal as they are political – very dubby in production, even though the record's not a dub set overall – given the focus on warmly soulful vocals upfront in the mix. The whole thing is fantastic, and as essential as any bigger-label reggae release from the time – with cuts that include "Hunting", "Flesh Of My Skin", "Blood Of My Blood", "Testing Of My Faith", "Fight Your Revolution", "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense", "Treasures Of The World", "My Nocturne", "I Shall Be Released", "No Friend Of Mine", and "Stabiliser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remaster of the original Mamba pressing and longer titled version of the classic Flesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood – with three bonus tracks and new liner notes.)

✨✧ Keith HudsonFlesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mamba/VP, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A once lost gem! Hudson's voice as a producer remains one of the most unique and idiosyncratic of his era, and this first LP issued under his own name stands as a shining document of his genius. Cut very near the time of his classic dub side Pick A Dub, this album shares the haunting mood that runs through the best of Hudson's work, all the while delivering a resounding roots message. The rhythms are fierce, laid down by Leroy Sibbles, Fully Fullwood, Santa Davis, Count Ossie and Augustus Pablo, a dozen mighty tracks in all: "Hunting", "Flesh Of My Skin", "Blood Of My Blood", "Testing Of My Faith", "Fight Your Revolution", "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense (Gamma Ray)", "Treasures Of The World", "My Nocturne", "I Shall Be Released", "No Friend Of Mine" and "Stabiliser".

Leny Andrade & Cesar Camargo MarianoLeny Andrade & Cesar Camargo Mariano Ao Vivo ... CD
Albatroz (Brazil), 2005. Used ... $4.99
Leny Andrade's singing here with strong piano accompaniment from the legendary Cesar Camargo Mariano – in an intimate live setting that mixes equal parts bossa and jazz, all coming through with a nice sense of clarity! The spareness of the set makes for a nice change from some of Leny's other contemporary albums – and takes us back to some earlier duets that Mariano did with singers many years back – always sensitively handled, and never overdone! Titles include an instrumental reading of "Samambaia", plus vocal numbers that include "Choro Do Minuto", "Fim De Sonho", "Voce Vai Ver", "A Ilha", "Vai De Vez", "Redentor", and "Tristeza De Nos Dois". CD
(Out of print, Brazilian pressing.)

✨✧ Quarteto Em CyResistindo Ao Vivo ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Wonderful stuff from the lovely Quarteto Em Cy – but aren't they always wonderful? The record's got a spare stripped-down instrumental style, and was recorded live with bossa backing – so that the girls' voices are right out front, free and clear, doing the main work of the songs. The harmonies are as heavenly as always, and tracks include "Samambaias", "Resistindo", "Canta, Canta Mais", "Funeral De Um Lavrador", and "Dorme, Meu Menino, Dorme". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes inner sleve.)

Mavis StaplesWe'll Never Turn Back ... CD
Anti, 2007. Used ... $4.99
A rootsy exploration of themes from the Civil Rights movement by Mavis Staples – getting the Anti treatment here with some real back-to-basics production from Ry Cooder! The sound is possibly even more down home than any of Mavis solo work from years back – certainly more so than her classy 70s soundtrack efforts, and even her earliest work for Stax – almost in an imagined place that jumps backwards to the sound of the earliest Staple Singers albums on Vee Jay, then brings in a bit of Cooder-esque soul to fill things up. Backing vocals on some tracks are by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and by a trio of backing singers on others – and titles include "Down In Mississippi", "Eyes On The Prize", "99 & 1/2", "This Little Light Of Mine", "On My Way", "I'll Be Rested", and "My Own Eyes".

✨✧ Miriam MakebaSangoma ... LP
Warner, 1988. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After hitting big success with Paul Simon's Graceland album in the mid 80s, Warners kind of had a little burst of renewed activity in recording the sorts of artists they paid attention to more in the glory days of the late 60s/early 70s record industry boom. Fortunately, Miriam Makeba benefitted from that surge of activity, and was able to cut this excellent album in a style that was far rootsier than any she'd used in years! The record has a pretty spare feel overall, and most tracks only feature vocals and percussion – with some occasional extra instrumentation, and production that's very much in the Ladysmith Black Mambazo mode from the time. titles include "Sabumoya", "Congo", "Icala", "Ihoyiya", and "Embahaceni". LP, Vinyl record album
(ncludes the printed inner sleeve, and mail order insert. Cover has light wear.)
