✨✧ DriveCan You Feel It ... LP
Gallo/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A South African jazz set from the 70s, but one with a very different vibe than most – stretched out nicely in ways that really let the tunes find their way! The group here is led by alto saxophonist H Sithole, but even more important is the work of a young Bekhi Mseleku – an artist we love for later recordings, who really adds a lot to the sound here on Hammond and electric piano – working in these long-spun lines that dance around the bass, guitar, and drums – while brothers open up on solos too – S Sithole on tenor and baritone, and D Sithole on trumpet. Titles include "Way Back Fifties", "Together", and "Can You Feel It". LP, Vinyl record album

Heshoo Beshoo GroupArmitage Road ... CD
Little Giant/We Are Busy Bodies, 1970. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A rare South African jazz treasure – a set that's much more obscure than some of the bigger names of the scene, and which has a sound that's very different too! There's maybe a stronger American influence taking place here, especially in the rhythms, but also in the phrasing – and the twin alto and tenor in the lead, played by Henry and Stanley Sithole, respectively, really makes for a soulful, and dynamic sound! Instrumentation also includes guitar from Cyril Magubane, who holds the role that a piano might – and his sense of tone and phrasing are very unique, and bring a lot of special elements to the record – alongside bass from Ernest Mothle and drums from Nelson Magwaza. Titles include "Armitage Road", "Wait & See", "Amabutho", "Lazy Bones", and "Emakhaya". CD
Also available Armitage Road ... LP 25.99

Vis-A-VisObi Agye Me Dofo ... LP
Continental/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
Incredible late work from the great West African dance band Vis-A-Vis – a brilliant set from 1977 that demonstrates good and well why the band were so greatly in demand both live and in the studio! The group had spent quite a bit of time backing the great Ghanaian singer K. Frimpong in the mid-to-late 70s, sometimes billed as the Cubano Fiestas, but as you're hear on this great set, they're just as great out on their own. They show a pretty amazing range – with a raw, yet dexterous African funk sound on some numbers and the entwining melodies of high life on others. The 12-piece group features a trio of vocalists led by "Superstar" Isaac Yeboah, plus Anthony Yeboah and Ayim Bediako, with Sammy Cropper on guitar, Slim Mau on bass, drummer Gybson "Shaolin Kung-Fu" Papra, George Asante on conga, Tonny Dozis on keys and synth, Kofi Abrokwaa on tenor sax, Paul Winter on trumpet, Daniel Asare on maracas and Alex Jubin on cowbells. Includes "Obi Agye Me Dofo", "Kankyema", "Gyae Su", "Gladys Mmbobor" and "Susan Suo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vis-A-VisOdo Gu Ahorow ... LP
We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record with a really wonderful groove – bubbling bass next to riffing guitar lines – a bit funky at times, but as a warm hybrid with more familiar highlife modes! The album's a key testament to the strengths of this 70s group from Ghana – filled with lively vocal interplay between leader Isaac Yeboah and the rest of the group, and graced throughout by the chromatic charms of guitarist Sammy Red Cropper – who may well be to the Ghanaian scene what Steve Cropper was to Booker T & The MGs and Memphis! Side one features the extended "Odo Gu Ahoroo" – and side two features shorter tracks "Odo Fever", "Ebeto Dabi", "Abofra Ketewa", and "Sunsum Me Gu Mu". LP, Vinyl record album
