Black MangoQuicksand ... CD
Gusstaff (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A really unique project from Philippe Samiguel – recorded in Bamako, where Samiguel has worked as a producer for many years – during which time he's pulled together ideas from all sorts of different projects, and forged them into a new groove of his own! Samiguel's worked most famously with Samba Toure – who's here on the record alongside other artists who include Hugo Race, Mariam Kone, Mamadou Sidibe, and others – working on music that has roots in Malian blues, Tuareg guitar, and other west African modes – but which has a quality that's also very much all its own. There's an experimental nature to the project that takes us back to some of the best global experiments from the early days of the Crammed label – and titles include "Are U Satisfied", "The First Tone", "Minamba", "Heaven Sands", "Mad Girl Lament", "Quicksand Blues", and "Golden Cage".

✨✧ John Lee & Gerry BrownMango Sunrise ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic lean low funky fusion – and a lost Blue Note 70s gem – a set that's way different than any other work from the team of bassist John Lee and drummer Gerry Brown! The set's nice and spare – almost CTI in style at times, but with some excellent production work from Skip Drinkwater – who brings in some soul undercurrents, and a sense of focus that other Lee/Brown work is sometimes missing. The result is a wonderful little record that avoids any of the excesses the pair had on the European scene – yet still has a really sharp edge in the end. Wah Wah Watson plays guitar, as does Philip Catherine – and the set also features some excellent keyboards – handled by Jasper Van't Hoff, Rob Franken, and Lee himself. Funky nuggets include "Mango Sunrise", "Her Celestial Body", and "The Stop and Go" – all of them filled with jazzy breaks! CD

✨✧ King Sunny AdeJuju Music ... LP
Mango, 1982. Near Mint- ... $24.99
King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath. Includes "Sunny Ti De Arya", "Ja Funmi" and "365 Is My Number/The Message". LP, Vinyl record album

King Sunny AdeSynchro System ... CD
Mango, 1983. Used ... $8.99
Fantastic work from King Sunny Ade – one of his first truly global releases, and an album that marked a whole new sound in his music! Sunny had been issuing lots of his own records back home in Nigeria – but this set has the juju master working in London, with really fantastic production that pushes his sound in really great ways – echoey waves of basslines and percussion, subtle but powerful vocals, and percolating guitar that takes on a whole new sonic sensibility in the setting! There's a richness to the texture that's amazing – almost as if Brian Eno produced – and titles include "Synchro Feelings Ilako", "Mo Ti Mo", "Penkele", "Maajo", "Synchro System", "E Saiye Re", "Tolongo", "E Wele", and "Synchro Reprise".

King Sunny AdeSynchro System/Aura ... CD
Mango/T-Bird (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A pair of groundbreaking records from King Sunny Ade – both of which represent a new wave of interest in African music after the initial burst of the Fela Kuti generation! First up is Synchro System – fantastic work from King Sunny Ade – one of his first truly global releases, and an album that marked a whole new sound in his music! Sunny had been issuing lots of his own records back home in Nigeria – but this set has the juju master working in London, with really fantastic production that pushes his sound in really great ways – echoey waves of basslines and percussion, subtle but powerful vocals, and percolating guitar that takes on a whole new sonic sensibility in the setting! There's a richness to the texture that's amazing – almost as if Brian Eno produced – and titles include "Synchro Feelings Ilako", "Mo Ti Mo", "Penkele", "Maajo", "Synchro System", "E Saiye Re", "Tolongo", "E Wele", and "Synchro Reprise". Next up is Aura – a crucial record in the early days of the global scene in the 80s – a set that lifts the music of King Sunny Ade from its roots in Nigeria, and mixes it up with some fresh elements that really open things up for a world's worth of ears! The approach isn't commercial – at least not in the modes of the later world music years – but there's occasional elements that echo the beat culture rising up in New York and London, mixed with the warmer sounds that were always at Sunny's music – especially that way of making the acoustic percussion and basslines come together in flowing waves of completely sublime sound! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Gboromiro", "Oremi", "Ire", "Iro", "Ogunja", and "Ase". CD

One of our favorite Black Uhuru LPs, when they'd fully matured as a group under the production of Sly & Robbie, with a tight modern reggae sound that few other groups could match from that era.

Johnson's righteous lyrical indignation, terse delivery, and rhythmic focus dovetail perfectly with tight, fat riddims from a crack band headed up by Dennis Bovell and Vivian Weathers. 8 choice numbers in all, including a batch of LKJ classics like "It Noh Funny", "Sonny's Lettah", "Independent Intavenshan", "Fite Dem Back", "Reality Poem" and "Forces of Vicktry", plus "Want Fi Goh Rave" and "Time Come".

✨✧ Padlock (with Gwen Guthrie)Padlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Mango/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A mini-LP, but one that packs more punch than most full length sets – thanks to a top-shelf lineup all the way through! The set's a project put together by Sly & Robbie, and recorded at Compass Point Studios – all with a groove that's kind of a dubbier take on the sound of New York dancefloors a the time – nicely bassy, slightly beaty, and topped with some really wonderful vocals from Gwen Guthrie! Larry Levan mixed the whole thing to perfection, giving it a real Paradise groove – and instrumentation is by Wally Badarou on synth, Harry Whitaker on keyboards, Darryl Thompson on guitars, and Jimmy Maelin on percussion. The set's kind of a mini-suite, based around a few key musical themes – and titles include "Padlock", "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Peanut Butter" and "Getting Hot". CD also features 6 more bonus tracks – "Hopscotch (Larry Levan rmx inst)", "Getting Hot (original 12" version)", "Padlock (album mix of Portrait)", "Seventh Heaven (album mix of Portrait)", "Hopscotch (album mix of Portrait)", and "Peanut Butter (original 12" version)".

The King Kong of dub albums, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other! Classic Lee Perry and an essential dub album, rendering Scratch's dense, multi-layered Black Ark rhythms in all their raw glory, with toasts and vocal snippets darting in and out of the dubs courtesy Prince Jazzbo, the Heptones, Dillinger and Scratch himself. With 10 essential tracks from the original release: "Zion's Blood", "Croaking Lizard", "Dread Lion", "Patience", "Dub Along", "Black Vest", "Underground", "Curly Dub" "Three In One" and "Super Ape".

✨✧ Toots & The MaytalsFunky Kingston (Island version) ... LP
Island/Mango, 1971. Near Mint- ... $59.99
The second album from Toots & The Maytals to bear the title Funky Kingston – and a set that's arguably even more classic than the first – as it takes the best tunes from that set, then adds in some killers from other records too – all wrapped up in an Island Records package that gave Toots and the group instant international fame the moment it was released! Toots Hibbert's vocals are incredible – some of the most soulful of the scene at the time – and rhythms are a perfect bridge between rocksteady and early reggae – nice and lean, and about as classic as can be! Titles include cool covers of "Louie Louie" and Country Roads" – plus the massive "Pressure Drop" and "Time Tough", and the cuts "Pomp & Pride", "Funky Kingston", and "Sailin' On".

✨✧ Toots & The MaytalsJust Like That ... LP
Mango, 1980. Near Mint- ... $29.99
It's the early 80s, but Toots Hibbert still has lots of older rocksteady modes in his music – maybe warmed up a bit by some of the wider reach that was allowed by the Island Records placement of albums like this! Yet despite any temptation to make things sound a bit more crossover, the approach is still nice and lean – a really laidback studio jam at Dynamic Studios, with Toots providing soulful vocals over mellow rhythms from a group that includes Winston Wright on organ and Mikey Chung on guitar. Titles include "Let's Get It Together", 'Chatty Chatty", "Just Like That", "Dilly Dally", "Israel Children" and "Journeyman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jah LionColombia Colly (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest mainstream 70s efforts from Lee Scratch Perry – a wonderful collaboration with Jah Lion – who serves up rhymes of knowledge and wisdom over some dubby genius from Scratch himself! The album skews towards the roots side of the spectrum, but has a looser, more open vibe too – as Jah Lion (aka Jah Lloyd) really lets his words space out amidst the fantastic production – really waiting his time for the rhythms to flow, then letting his vocals come in right on the money! The whole thing is great – virtually a blueprint for the entire On-U Sound label – with titles that include "Wisdom", "Dread In A Jamdong", "Flashing Whip", "Black Lion", "Fat Man", "Black Lion", "Little Sally Dater", "Hay Fever", and "Colombia Colly".

Hammond-heavy funk from Scone City Players – a group led by organist Adam Scone, and featuring work from The Dap-Kings and Menahan Street Band – all of whom do a fantastic job of giving the organ lines some really massive support! There's a raw vibe here that takes us back to some of the earliest work on the Desco label – great production that leaves plenty of grit in the grooves, at a level that makes the organ sound wonderful – never too clean, and set up perfectly for the breaking drums in the rhythms, which also get some great conga support for an added kick! The whole thing's great – mean, gritty instrumentals that bridge the gap between Hammond jazz of the 60s and instrumental funk – with titles that include "1% Crown", "Bliss Machine", "The Slitter", "Heavy Gauge", "Necking", "Blast Furnace", "Jet Cool", "Grinding Wheel", and "Structural Failure".

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

Mango/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The all time classic from Junior Murvin – as essential as any late 70s reggae! Production-wise, Police And Thieves is among Scratch's finest moments, from the most monumental period in Perry's career, during the height of the Black Ark. The title track needs no introduction from us, and the rest of the record is solid, funky roots rock, at a level Murvin would not match again in his career. His sweet falsetto is draped in the dense, murky production that carved a niche in history for Perry. Tracks like "Roots Train" and "False Teaching" are the embodiment of crucial, and the album is filled with other great cuts like the now classic title track, "Rescue Jah Children", "Tedious", "Easy Task" and "I Was Appointed".

Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come ... CD
Island, 1972. Used ... $4.99 6.99
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – maybe in part because it was a soundtrack, as was Superfly – but also because it has this global power that makes it a defining album of the genre! Jimmy Cliff is obviously the mainman here, but there's help from other key players in the growing reggae scene – and titles include Jimmy's classic "You Can Get It If You Really Want", in two versions – plus two takes on "The Harder They Come", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "Sitting In Limbo" – plus "Sweet & Dandy" and "Pressure Drop" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker, "Johnny Too Bad" by The Slicers, "Draw Your Brakes" by Scotty, and "Rivers Of Babylon" by The Melodians.

The film was issued after the big fame of The Harder They Come – and while it never reached the heights of the Jimmy Cliff classic, it's maybe even more interesting overall – a lot less polished, in a way that also comes through in the music – which echoes the nature of the film with some of the sense of accident and collaboration that characterized the ever-fervent scene of the time. Titles include "We A Rockers" by Inner Circle, "Money Worries" by The Maytones, "Police & Thieves" by Junior Murvin, "Book Of Rules" by The Heptones, "Stepping Razor" by Peter Tosh, "Tenement Yard" by Jacob Miller, "Fade Away" by Junior Byles, "Rockers" by Bunny Wailer, "Slave Master" by Gregory Isaacs, "Dread Lion" by The Upsetters, "Graduation In Zion" by Kiddus I, "Jah No Dead" by Burning Spear, "Satta Massagana" by Third World, and "Natty Take Over" by Justin Hinds & The Dominos. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousJamaican Jazz From Federal Records – Carib Roots, Jazz, Mento, Latin, Merengue, & Rhumba 1960 to 1968 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the years before reggae became the international sound of Jamaica – music from the island nation's jazz scene, which was at the crossroads of so many different styles of music – jazz from the north, Latin rhythms from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and a fair bit of other Caribbean sounds too – all of which filter through the wonderful collection of music on the set! The title breaks down the different genres featured – but there's often a surprisingly unified feel to the whole record too – one that stands partly as a testament to the musical strengths of all the performers involved! In the days before Trojan and Studio One, Federal Records was an important Jamaican label – and did an especially great job of capturing some of the sounds that were part of that nation's club culture and resorts in the 60s. Titles include "Angelima" and "Like Falling In Love" by Ernest Ranglin, "Profile Cha Cha" and "Rhumbina" by Cecil Lloyd & The Starline Troubadors, "Estrellita" and "I Love Paris" by The Lennie Hibbert Combo, "Tis Wonderful" by Eric Grant, "Linstead Market" by Baba Motta & Ernest Ranglin, "Wheel & Turn Me" by Bertie King, "Go Fife Go" by Count Owen, "Mango Walk" by Bertie King & Ernest Ranglin, "String Of Pearls" by Auldey Williams & His Orchestra, "Solas Market" by Baba Motta, and "Monday Monday" by Winston Turner Quintet.

✨✧ Monty NormanDr No – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The first James Bond soundtrack – pre-John Barry, but already showing Bond music as a genre unto itself! Monty Norman handles the music – and brings together some cool Caribbean sounds with familiar jazz riffs – a blend that showcases the Jamaican setting of the main narrative, but also paves the way for lots of spy jazz to come! Titles include "James Bond Theme", "Under The Mango Tree", "Jamaica Jazz", "Dr No's Fantasy", "The Boy Chase", "Love At Last", and "The Island Speaks". LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Jazz Quintet (with Eric Dolphy)Latin Jazz Quintet ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A extremely rare album that Eric Dolphy recorded with the Latin Jazz Quintet – a rare Latin-based side of Dolphy's career, and a set that's a bit different than the Prestige album by the same pairing! This set features a slightly different lineup of the LJQ – one that includes Louie Ramirez on timbales, Felipe Diaz on vibes, and Art Jenkins on piano – all grooving very hard, and very tight next to Dolphy's work on alto, flute, and bass clarinet! His work here still has a bit of a modern edge, but not nearly as much so as on his work as a leader – mostly content to settle into the groove with the rest of the group, but then bursting out boldly with some really inventive solo moments! Titles include "Mangolina", "Cha Cha King", "Speak Low", "Night In Tunisia", and "I Got Rhythm". CD

MachitoMachito At The Crescendo ... LP
GNP, Early 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
An obscure west coast session by Machito – recorded at the Crescendo night club in LA , but done in the same hard style as Machito's groundbreaking New York sides of the time. Graciela sings vocals on a few cuts, and Machito and the trio sing on a few more – but the other half of the album is instrumental, and we actually like those titles more. Tunes include "Pachanga A La Crescendo", "Mangos", "Maggie's Mambo", "Cuban Fantasy", and "Bernie & The Wolf". The record's got some nice jazzy bits, with a good hard live feel that's a bit different from some of Machito's studio work. LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, half split top seam, center split in the bottom seam, and some writing in pen in back.)

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSound Of Sonny ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s playing on other labels – but this album's a real standout that shows that even with familiar material, Sonny can make magic happen in the way he phrases a tune and places a solo. Sonny's working here with a group that includes some hard-edged piano from Sonny Clark and some wonderfully inventive rhythm from Roy Haynes on drums – but Rollins is the real star in this quartet setting – shining throughout, in a mode that's incredibly economical, yet which speaks volumes with every note! Titles include "Mangoes", "Cutie", "Just In Time", and "Every Time We Say Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

Kai WindingIncredible Kai Winding Trombones ... LP
Impulse, 1960. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
The title's no mistake – both in its pluralization and its acclaim for Kai Winding – as the leader here is working with a brace of additional trombones, all in a groove that's one of his most fluid on record to date! The style builds nicely from the sound that Kai and JJ Johnson forged in the 50s – but it's served up here with a sound that's slightly more modern, filled with colors and tones that really deepen the sound of Winding's music! Other trombonists include Jimmy Knepper, Tony Studd, Paul Faulise, and Johnny Messner – playing differently pitched trombones – and rhythm players include Ron Carter on bass, Bill Evans on piano, and Al Beldini on drums – plus some guest conga by Olatunji. Titles include "Speak Low", "Love Walked In", "Mangos", "Michie", "Impulse", and "Black Coffee". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBisbi – The Best Of Afro Funky Disco ... LP
Use Vinyl Records (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99 39.99
A really cool mix of cuts – a package that brings together American funk cuts with global touches, European tracks from the post-colonial years, and a few more surprising nuggets from other sources too – all to show the way that African rhythms entered the clubs during the 70s! Many of these numbers are either heavy on percussion, or mix together exotic elements with more familiar soulful production – and there's a nice selection of cuts from the US and overseas, which makes for a few nice surprises along the way. Titles include "Anikano O (1974 version)" by Kongas, "Hollywood Party" by Brooklyn Express, "Spend The Night" by Bob A Rela, "Dance With Your Parno" by Bohannon, "Erotic Soul" by Larry Page, "Invocation" by Tumblack, "Funky Boogie" by John Ozila, "Toque De Cuica" by Airto, "Jam On The Groove" by Ralph MacDonald, "Woman" by Barrabas, "Sultana" by Titanic, "Mangous Ye" by Black Soul, and "Big Noise From Winnetka" by Spaghetti Hero.

✨✧ VariousBritxotica Box – Three Amazing Albums Of Primitive Pop & Savage Jazz From The Wild British Isles (3CD set) ... CD
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not exotica, but Britxotica – a cool variant of the American postwar love of the sounds of the islands and the jungles – served up here in a really hip batch of tracks from the UK scene of the late 50s and early 60s! Many of these numbers are rooted in jazz, and there's definitely some key jazz musicians in the mix – but you'll also hear lots of the percussion, global instruments, and moody orchestrations you'd find on American records by folks like Les Baxter or Martin Denny – although sometimes with an even groovier vibe, and a nice London twist – similar to some of the Croydon Municipal compilations from Cherry Red! The package is one of the coolest collections we've seen from Trunk Records in a long time – and this special box features all three of the vinyl volumes. Titles include "Zambezi" by Tony Mansell & Johnny Dankworth, "The Green Eye Of The Little Yellow God" by Harry H Corbett, "Street Of A Thousand Bongos" by Brian Fahey, "Taboo" by Sounds Incorporated, "Follow Me" by Lucille Mapp, "Jungle Drums" by Ted Heath, "The Hat" by Jerry Allen, "Cha Cha Cha Calypso" by Maxine Daniels, "Sphinx Won't Tell" by Beverley Sisters, "Caravan" by Stanley Black, "Persian Twist" by Charles Blackwell, "Marrakesh" by Tony Osborne, "Climb Up The Wall" by Yana, "Miserlou" by Stanley Black, "Turkish Coffee" by Tony Osborne, "The Sultan Of Bezaaz" by Ray Ellington, "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

✨✧ Tom Misch & Yussef DayesWhat Kinda Music ... LP
Blue Note, 2020. Sealed 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes definitely make some kinda music here – a sweet blend of jazzy elements, contemporary soul, and a spacious, spacey vibe that resonates strongly with some of our favorite recent sounds from the west coast! The album's on Blue Note, but it's a bit different than some of the label's recent projects – even those that are more soul-based – as the vibe here is heavy on keyboards, vocals, and guitar from Misch – set up with drums from Dayes, in a style that's funky but mellow – all tripping out nicely, with help from a variety of guests along the way. Titles include "Tidal Wave", "The Real", "Sensational", "I Did It For You", "Julie Mangos", "Kyiv", "Last 100", and "What Kinda Music" – plus "Lift Off", with guest work from Rocco Palladino – and "Nightrider", with guest work from Freddie Gibbs!

✨✧ Gino WashingtonLove Bandit ... CD
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A socking soul party – and a wonderfully done set of work by Detroit underground singer Gino Washington! The album's a kickass bunch of hard soul tunes – a perfect 60s soul party with loads of great numbers that show Gino at his best, rolling with an upbeat sound that's made him a favorite of collectors for years and which should have made Gino a lot bigger back in the day. This is raw raw raw soul – wonderful throughout, and packaged with great notes on the material! Features a number of unissued tunes, too – with titles that include "Hey I'm A Love Bandit", "Everything Is Di Jo Be", "I Gotta Move On", "Like My Baby", "Rat Race", "Doing The Popcorn", "Singing In The Rain", and "Foxy Walk". Also features work by other groups featuring Gino – including "I Really Love You" by The Tomangoes, "I Don't Want No Bald Headed Woman Telling Me What To Do" by Nathaniel Mayer, and "My Man/Please Stay" by Pearl Jones.
