✨✧ Les Baxter & 101 StringsQue Mango ... LP
Alshire, 1970. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later album, but one that still features Les doing some great Latiny bits – heading up the 101 Strings ensemble, for a sweeping and groovy kind of sound! The whole album's very similar to some of Les' Capitol work from the early 60s, but has a slightly more modern twist – including the use of electric bass underneath the arrangements, which creates a really nice gently loping groove! One of Les' best – despite the late date – and with tracks that include "Jungle Montuno", "Que Mango", "Bocha Chica", "Affair In Aruba", and "Tropicando". Very groovy, baby! LP, Vinyl record album

King Sunny AdeSynchro System/Aura ... CD
Mango/T-Bird (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy ... $12.99
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

AswadNew Chapter Of Dub (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

Burning SpearMarcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost ... CD
Mango/Island (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
An absolute classic! If you can own only one reggae LP, this one's in the front running – it's as if the words crucial and conscious were created to define the sound Winston Rodney, Burning Spear & the Black Disciples capture on this landmark roots LP. Though this is the Island version which many claim was cleaned up a bit too much to appeal to white audiences (and the same for the dub set, which is included here), but we still think it's pretty powerful. The Black Disciples band, with Horse Wallace, Robbie Shakespeare, Family Man Barrett, Chinna Smith and others, carve out mighty dread rthythms, and producer Jack Ruby keeps the proceedings tight and right, with just the right dub effects laid over top on the dub cuts. Featuring the tracks "Slavery Days", "Marcus Garvey", "The Invasion", "Red, Gold, & Green", "Resting Place", and "Live Good", plus this CD issue adds the dub companion LP, Garvey's Ghost, the dubs "The Ghost", "I & I Survive", "Black Wa-Da-Da", "Brain Food", "Dread River", "Reggaelation" and more, for a total of 20 tracks in all!

Toots & The MaytalsJust Like That (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

Although the sly double entendre of the title to this LP isn't lost on us, it does reflect LKJ's importance in the dread poet scene at a certain level. Both the fierceness of his politics and razor like wit show beautifully on this album, over some of the heaviest riddims to come from the emigrant Jamaican scene of musicians in the UK, courtesy Dennis Bovell and crew. Includes classics like "Making History", "Di Great insohreckshan", "Wat About Di Workin Class?" and "Reggae Fi Radni", plus "Reggae Fi Dada", "New Crass Massahkah" and "Di Eagle An Di Bear".

✨✧ Black UhuruRed ... CD
Mango/Island, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Black Uhuru albums, 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. Heavy, heavy grooves saddled with the trios potent lyrics and harmony vocals, including the massive "Youth Of Eglington" and "Sponji Reggae", plus "Puff She Puff", "Rockstone", "Carbine", "Utterance", "Journey" and "Sistren". This CD reissue's been remastered, and adds the discomix version of "Sponji Reggae" and non-album track "Trodding" as bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Mango/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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)".

Bunny does nice later interpretations of Wailers classics, with a generous helping hand from Sly & Robbie, and adds a nice rendition of Curtis Mayfield's "Keep On Moving" – another Wailers mainstay – to the set. One of our favorite albums from the twilight of the original roots era, with 10 tracks in all, including "Dancing Shoes", "Mellow Mood", "Rule This Land", "Burial", "Dreamland", "Hypocrite", "I Stand Predominate", "Walk The Land" and "I'm The Toughest".

✨✧ Manu DibangoGone Clear – The Complete Kingston Sessions(2LP pressing) ... LP
Mango/Soul Makossa (France), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really great shift in setting for legendary reedman Manu Dibango – an album recorded in Jamaica with production from Geoffrey Chung – who helps the saxophonist find a whole new groove for his soulful style! The album's from a moment where many were flocking to Kingston to record with top-shelf talents – but there's something about this record that's better than most of that generation, possibly because right from the start, Manu always had a way of taking regional sounds and finding a much stronger global focus! Players include Sly and Robbie on rhythms, plus Ansel Collins and Clive Hunt on keyboards, Barry Rogers on trombone, Mikey Mao Chung on guitar, and surprisingly, Jon Faddis and Randy Brecker on trumpets. 2LP set features 12 tracks from the sessions – and titles include "Reggae Makossa", "Choc N Soul", "Night Jet", "Bona Sango", "Kumbele Style", "Tek Time", "Goro City", "Frozen Soul", "Doctor Bird", and "Full Up".

✨✧ Jah LionColombia Colly (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... 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".

✨✧ Linton Kwesi JohnsonBass Culture/LKJ In Dub (2LP red & green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mango (UK), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Bass Culture, but way more than that too – as the album is a classic kernel of wisdom from the great Linton Kwesi Johnson – done up in the mix of spoken and sung passages that always made his records so unique! Dennis Bovell handles the backing and mixing – with lots of nice dubby touches that also bring some slight currents of postpunk moodiness to the record – one of the factors that helped LKJ cross over to so many non-reggae audiences at the time. Titles include "Bass Culture", "Reggae Fi Peach", "Di Black Petty Booshwah", "Inglan Is A Bitch", "Loraine", and "Two Sides Of Silence". Also features the album LKJ In Dub – a modern dub classic! Dennis Bovell had really hit his stride with many of these rhythms laid down for the great dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson's Forces of Victory and Bass Culture LPs, and they're given just the right touch of tasty dub effects here. Nice horn lines float over thunderous bass & drum workouts, with 8 top notch numbers in all, including "Victorious Dub", "Iron Bar Dub", "Reality Dub", "Peach Dub", "Cultural Dub", "Brain Smashing Dub", "B!tch Dub" and "Shocking Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

Roots themes mix with more romantic elements on the tunes – and the raspy lead of the vocals still keep things at a very down to earth level, even at a time when some of the mainstream reggae world was starting to sound a bit too commercial. Titles include "Careless Ethiopians", "Never Get Weary", "Revival Time", "Spend A Weekend", "Two-Time", "Beautiful Woman", "I Know We Can Make It", "Missing You",and "Will You Be Kind".

Beats are by Sherwood and Dub Syndicate, along the with the legendary Roots Radics. Tracks include "African Hitchhiker", "Vibrate On", "Inspector Gadget", "Push, Push", "The Groove", "Party Time" and "African Headcharge In The Hackney Empire". CD

Cy ColemanJamaica ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
Cy Coleman takes on the music of Jamaica – a Broadway show that he didn't write, but which he really makes his own here through a mix of lively piano lines and vocals! Cy's better known as an instrumentalist, but his few spots of singing here are quite nice – raspy and understated, and just the right sort of charm for the tunes – delivered in a way that's probably quite different than the numbers must have sounded on the stage. The group's got a good spirit, too – some occasional "island" inflections, which are maybe more Latin jazz overall – as Cy works with Aaron Bell on bass, Ray Mosca and Osie Johnson on drums, Skeeter Best on guitar, and Romeo Penque on flute. Titles include "Savanna", "I Don't Think I'll End It All Today", "Take It Slow Joe", "Monkey In The Mango", and "Little Biscuit". LP, Vinyl record album

A very different album than the previous effort from drummer/percussionist Saratha Korwar – a lot more political, as you might guess from the title – and a set that has the London musician working with performers from the hip hop scenes in Mumbai and New Delhi! Most of the tunes have a soaring, majestic quality – a similar blend of jazz and global elements that we've heard in Korwar's music – but the additional of lyrics on most numbers really transforms the whole thing, and uses Korwar's strong sonic sensibilities as the backdrop for some very powerful global messages! MCs include Trap Poju, MIrande, Zia Ahmed, Aditya Prakash, Deepak Unnikrishnan, MC Mawali, and Delhi Sultanate – and titles include "Mango", "City Of Words", "Bol", "Pravasis", "Good Ol Vilayati", "Coolie", and "Mumbay".

Kante Manfila & Sorry BambaClash Mandingue – Manding Dance Music Of The 60s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
A killer blend of Latin and African rhythms – topped by Kante Manfila's amazing work on guitar, which is produced with a range of weird and wonderful sounds! There's a quality to this music that's beyond easy description – a 60s blend of African roots and outside influences – most strongly an influx of Afro-Cuban rhythms, but also a touch of Anglo rocking on the guitar sound and production, and on the cool use of organ on a number of the best tracks. The rhythms are often quite tight – dancing lightly on some pachanga-oriented numbers, hitting a bit harder on some boogaloo tracks – and then really letting loose on some of the really fierce cuts. Sorry Bamba delivers flute or trumpet lines on some tracks – and his flute is especially nice, with a really sharp-edged, eerie sort of quality. Collection features work recorded together by the pair or under Kante's name – plus a few solo tracks by Sorry – and the CD version features 23 tracks that include "Mobakan", "Air Afrique", "Super Bara Serah", "Keleya", "Serre", "Bravo Mimos", "N'Diarabi Bedonna", "Tira Kaba", "Djantou Madjila", "Ladji", "Diyabanale", "Mosso Gnouma", "Djeli Mango", "N'Na", "Mamou", "Kelai Magni", and "Djantou Madjila".

A great look at the way that the Blue Note record label renewed its commitment to jazz guitar in the 70s – finding some of the best new talents of the decade, and recording the instrument in a variety of different ways! The Blue Note jazz funk sides of the time are very well-known, but the music here is nicely expanded past those modes – to include some great mellow moments, fusion tracks, and even some numbers that completely defy easy description! There's a heck of a lot of great guitarists on the set – Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Robby Krieger, Dom Minasi, Ray Gomez, Reggie Lucas, Earl Klugh, John Rowin, Tommy Bolin, and Joe Beck – and CD2 is made entirely of tracks that feature David T Walker on guitar.

The second album from Daniel Carlomango – and an amazing little set that's one of our favorite recent albums from Brazil! Daniel's got a style that's a bit like that of some of his Trama labelmates – but there's also a depth and seriousness here that's instantly apparent in the songwriting, even if you can't understand Portuguese. The set's soulful, jazzy, and grooving in a way that immediately transcends global boundaries – and which serves as a perfect foil for Daniel's beautifully crafted lyrics. Guests include Fernanda Porto, Cesar Camargo Mariano, and Marcos Valle – and titles include "Procura", "Duas Solidoes", "Acontece Que Ela Tem Namorada", "Minha Casa", "Na Minha Cabeca", "O Inevitavel", "Esse Nosso Amor", and "Atigas Novidades".

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.

VariousIvory Coast Soul – Afrofunk In Abidjan From 1972 to 1982 ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Massive music we've never heard before – a really heavy helping of grooves from the Ivory Coast – an African scene that's hardly been tapped by crate diggers and collectors! There's a really fresh feel to the grooves overall – not just the familiar Afro Funk modes, but a nice range of styles that moves between rootsy local numbers through some great crossover styles, through even a few of the African Disco modes that are better known from other scenes! The tracks here are all massively funky – scoured out over the course of a number of different crate-digging trips to the coast – and the package presents the music with great images of the original record covers, too – so that you can still retain some of the feel of the rarity of the work, even though the collection presents things in an easy to handle format. Definitely one for fans of Soundway and Analogue Africa titles – with cuts that include "True Love" by Rato Venance, "Yatchiminou" by Jimmy Hyacinthe, "Kalabuley Woman" by Pierre Antoine, "Mammy Nia" by Nguessan, "Wazi Doble" by Gougoumangou, "Zadie Bobo" by Ernesti Djedje, "Unite" by Moussa Doumbia, "Mon Falou Nan" by Soro N Gana Et L'Orchestre Guilana-na, "Onginwe" by Prince Dgibs, and "Essemon Moupoh" by Jean Guehi.

✨✧ Sonny RollinsFreedom Suite Plus ... LP
Riverside, 1957/1958. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great reissue that takes Rollins' historic Freedom Suite LP, and adds in a full extra LP's worth of material pulled from scattered sessions on Riverside. The well-annotated set offers a strong look at Rollins during the key 1958 period, when he was really moving into some of his strongest musical statements of the decade. Freedom Suite features Sonny blowing freely in a trio, with Oscar Pettiford on bass and Max Roach on drums – and the other tracks feature Sonny Clark, Roy Haynes, and either Percy Heath of Paul Chambers on bass. Titles include "Cutie", "Just In Time", "Mangoes", "Shadow Waltz", "Freedom Suite", "Someday I'll Find You", and "Funky Hotel Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring and edge wear.)

✨✧ Tom Misch & Yussef DayesWhat Kinda Music ... CD
Blue Note, 2020. New Copy ... 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!
