✨✧ Manhattan BrothersVery Best Of The Manhattan Brothers – Their Greatest Hits 1948 to 1959 ... CD
Sterns (UK), Late 40s/1950s. Used ... $9.99
Classic work by The Manhattan Brothers – a South African vocal quartet who drew heavily on modes from American groups like the Ink Spots or Mills Brothers, but who also managed to translate that sound into an important force in African pop! The recordings here are pulled from a host of older 78s and singles – beautifully remastered to bring the group's harmonies into full focus, and let them step out in all their jazzily-inflected brilliance. Most lyrics on the tunes aren't in English, but there's a universal swing here that's instantly appreciated – and the CD features a total of 20 classics that include "Dubula Mfanandini", "Ntyilo Nytilo", "Be My Guest", "Manyeo", "Ulova", "Chaka", "Baby Ntsoare", "Thaba Tseu", "Mangoane", "Vuka Vuka", "Marie", and "Patience & Fortune".

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70He Miss Road ... CD
Sterns (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A gem of a set from the legendary Fela Kuti – a classic set of Nigerian grooves produced by Ginger Baker – who was already a frequent musical partner of Fela! The set's got a sharp groove right from the start, and possibly some slighty darker elements than some of Kuti's other records of the time – particularly in the way the guitars echo out next to the saxophones, which are often highlighted by the wonderful rhythms of the great Tony Allen! "Monday Morning In Lagos" is a really blue-tinged track that goes beyond the usual Afro Funk of the time – one of those moments when it seems as if there's a surprising link between Fela's Africa 70 group and Sun Ra's Arkestra. "He Miss Road" is a burning, building groove that has the keyboards layered up strongly with the saxes – and "It's No Possible" is a great side-long track with this really wonderful use of electric piano – again sometimes at a level that almost feels Sun Ra-like!

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersEastwood Rides Again (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
If there's anyone who could make the idea of Italian westerns and Jamaican grooves come together, it's the young Lee Scratch Perry – the mad musician who always had a great talent for mixing it up! Eastwood Rides Again follows the theme of The Upsetters previous classic, Return Of Django – and like that one, the groove isn't just the rocksteady rhythms you'd expect – but also maybe this more spacious version of the style, with a bit more space between the notes than some of their Kingston contemporaries – almost a mode that could be inspired by the spacious soundtrack scoring of the Italian scene, then delivered with a much grittier vibe. Most tunes are instrumentals, and titles include "Eastwood Rides Again", "Salt & Pepper", "Red Hot", "Tight Spot", "Catch This", "Popcorn", and "You Are Adorable". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 colored vinyl pressing – limited to 1000 copies.)

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGuns For San Sebastian ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bold, brash scoring from Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack that's a bit more dramatic than some of his better-known westerns from the time, done here with full orchestrations and a mix of haunting themes! The story is set in 18th century Mexico – and Morricone's music has some slight western elements, but a lot more straight dramatic ones as well – tense moments of action, and quieter, subtler points of personal interaction. Edda Dell'Orso sings just a bit on the record – and titles include "The Chase", "Building The Dam", "Burning Village", "Attack", "Teclo's Death", and "Music At The Governor's Dinner". CD reissue features a number of bonus tracks that weren't on the short original album – plus a great booklet that's filled with notes and images from the film! 24 tracks in all. CD
