Ojo BalingoAfrotunes – Best of Juju Vol 2 – Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 26.98
Excellent sounds from Ojo Balingo – a Nigerian juju artist from the same stretch as King Sunny Ade – but one whose music is much more obscure to audiences on this side of the Atlantic! Balingo's group here has the loose, spontaneous vibe that characterizes juju at its best – this real sense of jamming, especially in the criss-crossing of the percussion, which is tremendous throughout – a real driving force of the music, and exploding with all these melodic elements as much as rhythmic ones – so much so, that the talking between the drums speaks volumes, even before the vocals come into the mix. The whole thing's a masterpiece of creative percussion, mixed with other elements that creep in a bit more strongly on side two – and titles include "Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo", "Ayo Igbala Ni Mofe, "Igbe Eiye Oloburo", "Jide Babaloa & Bayo Babalola", and "Ile Aiye Ile Ese Ile Aiye Ogun". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousTabansi Records Sampler ... CD
Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nicely-done overview of the Tabansi Records label – an important imprint in Nigeria during the 80s, and a company who really helped change up the groove for a whole new generation! Tabansi had a pretty wide range of styles in their catalog, but that also gave the label a way to merge things together at times – often criss-crossing electro soul with highlife, boogie funk with acoustic elements, and lots more unusual hybrids that have made their records stand out from the pack! The BBE label have been doing a great job with Tabansi reissues, and this set brings together some of the best tracks from that series, plus a few more – 13 titles that include "Akalaka" by Victor Chukwu, "Make You No Mind" by Ebo Taylor, "Zeal Anata" by Zeal Onyia, "Love Vibration" by Nkono Teles, "Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo" by Ojo Balingo, "Looking Out For You" by The Mandators, "You're My Solution" by Eric Kol, "Thina Dekula" by Lumingu Puati, "Super Star" by Tony Sarfo & His Funki Afrobisi, and "For The Love Of Money" by Zack & Geebah.
