Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited - Mabasa, Earthworks/Roughtrade 1984

Let's see what we got in the car. Okay, now everybody hold
something in your hand. Perfect, great coverpicture. The music
of Thomas Mapfumo and his Blacks Unlimited is almost hypnotizing.
It makes you drift away to unknown destinations.
The Lion of Zimbabwe they call him and if you like to know
more about 'Chimurenga' and Thomas Mapfumo, go here.

Martinho da Vila - Meu Laiáraiá, RCA Victor 1970

Martinho da Vila's sambas are always subtle and pure, every song
has it's own unique and original sound. Together with the great
sounds of RCA's 70's and Martinho's warm voice, this is
a true beauty. Although ripped by several other blogs, this one
deserves to be ripped and posted once more.

Pedro Laza y su Banda, Discos Fuentes 1979 plus Bonustracks

Today I thought I'd post us some Colombian music. 'Navidad Negra'
which I addad as a bonustrack is a good example of music they
play in Colombia with Christmas. Pedro Laza is the man who wrote
lots of such songs. On 'El güiro' vocals by Daniel Santos, on 'La
cosecha de mujeres' vocals by José Maria Peñaranda.
On 'Cumbia en el monte' vocals by Pascual Rovira, on 'Navidad Negra'
vocals by Tito Cortes. On 'La calle 13' and 'La negra caliente'
vocals by Crescencio Gamacho.
As for me, I can play this type of music all year through, such
happy sound should be for always.

Miguel Aceves Mejía - Cantares de Mexico, RCA Victor

On this Christmas night I've got something special.
I recently found a few 10" EP's on RCA Victor from several Mexican
artists. Among them was this fine oldie, I think it must be from
the 50's. On the web I found just little about Miguel. What I did
find was that Youtube has two films of tracks on this EP.
The first track, "Ella" is here
And track 3 is here.
I wish the world a fine night with this sweet piece of Mariachi.
One thing, it's got some snaps, crackles and pops.
Look and listen to Miguel Aceves Mejía.

Ruts DC - Rhythm Collision, Bohemian Records 1982

To have us a little variety, I thought some dub wouldn't
hurt. Early 80's, when we were listening to loads of reggae,
this LP came out and dublovers as we were, it scored enormously.
I am still thrilled to hear it after all those years.
Engineered by Mad Professor, Dub along groovers.

Sam Mangwana, Eddy'Son
Consortium Mondial 1979

It's been some time since we saw Sam Mangwana at the GG. This one
is on Eddy'Son Consortium and I think he plays on it too,
Sam Mangwana mentions his name somewhere. On the photo
I think we see Pablo Lubadika, Bopol Mansiamina, Syran and Sam.
Do you agree ? Not the worst line-up I'd say, what great artists.
Track #1 was on a previous posted LP aswell, but in different version.

2 Souzana Koulibali

4 International Mabouya

African System Orchestra -
Canon Kpa Kum,
Rogers All Stars 1981

This is a Nigerian record, made by a band that exists mainly
out of Camerounian musicians. Many came to Nigeria when oil
was found and economy grew. By the middle of the 80's, many left
again. Music styles started to fuse and this LP is a good example,
it contains Highlife, Soukous, Makossa, all stirred, not shaken.
Seriously, this is great music.

Israel Vibration - Why You So Craven, Arrival 1981

One of my all time favourite reggae bands is Israel Vibration.
These three singers change places all the time, when one takes
the lead, the other two do background vocals.
Their songs are always friendly and the overall feeling you
get is one of ultimate sympathy. When you have the CD of this
album, you'll find that they, for some reason, turned the picture
mirrorwise. This is the original LP with the original photo.
If I am right it is from 1981, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Mixed by Scientist and produced by Henry 'Junjo' Lawes at
Channel One Studio's.

Riachao, Batatinha e Panela - Samba da Bahia, Fontana 1978

Ever since I heard this album, I'm a fan of Riachao, he's got
such a pleasant voice. And his sambas are just delightful.
He can easily be seen next to Nelson Cavaquinho or Cartola.
One of Brasil's greatest 'Sambistas'.
Batatinha and Panela deserve to be on this album too
but my attention goes out to the A-side.

Original Shleu-Shleu - Original Shleu Shleu Soul, SS Records

This is one of the LP's I promised to rip some time ago.
Someone asked, "What does Shleu-Shleu mean ?", the sleevenotes
on this LP say, "Shleu-Shleu is the name of some mysterious
African tribe." As for me, that's just fine. The music is so
fantastic here, you can't stop dancing. A killer from
beginning to end. Compas with a Soulful kind of Gypsie feel.
Thanks for waking me Arnaud.

"Doble R" Super Special Stars - Di Paranda.!?, Studio Fidelis 1978

As the French do, the Netherlands also have their Antilles
in the Caribbean. Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba , Saint Eustatius
and Saint Maarten, called the Netherlands Antilles.
From Curaçao, this is "Doble R", on this LP they perform
in 'Papiamento', a language called after the Portuguese words
'papia and papear' which mean; 'to babble'.
In Curaçao this is the language most spoken, next to Dutch.
Hope you like it Arnaud, I'll make a compilation with some
Antillian music, sung in Dutch, when I find the time.
Listen to Doble R.

I have never heard one bad tune by these guys, everything
they play sounds great. This is an oldie on Ansonia, anyone
who knows from what year it is ? Los Guaracheros de Oriente

I could find no information on this group but I can tell
you this is a fine LP. Singers with sweet voice combined

Superb rhythms and a great hornsection.

Various Artists - Tiger goes Calypso, West Indies Telco Record Division, late 60's

Somewhere probably late 60's, Esso made theirselves this
funny collector. They found Young Killer to make 'Tiger in
your tank' and collected a few big names to complete the set.
Mighty Sparrow and the Merrymen could also use a buck or two,
so they joined in. On track 4 we hear a steelband play ska,
that was the first time for me. The Don Drummond tribute
scores too, I am a big Don Drummond fan, legendary trombone.
All together we've got us a funny gem with a nice cover and
a few great tracks.

Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister - Fuji Garbage, Siky Oluyole Records 1988

This is the first album with Fuji music on this page.
Fuji is a style from Yoruba-land, sometimes described as
Juju music without guitars. Originally, Fuji ( called after
Mount Fuji in Japan ) is based on muslim 'were', the singing
alarm clock songs, performed for early breakfast and prayers
during Ramadan. Sikiru Ayinde, better known by his fans as
Barrister, is the leading Yoruba fuji singer. Fuji is in
fact a quite complex style, drawing on Yoruba percussion
roots, while adding a muslim vocal feel. This LP has great
music but an awful cover to my opinion, ( apart from his
sunglasses ) don't look too much but just listen
to 'Barrister'.

By the way, as usual in this type of music, all songs are
melted together as one, I did not devide them.

Pio Leiva - Sabor y Ritmo Tropical, Suaritos Records

It was in 1997, when 'Buena Vista Social Club' launched their
historic first cd with Ry Cooder, that I learned about Pio Leiva.
He was one of the singers, that worked with Compay Segundo
since the 50's. Leiva was one of the main performers of the
Montuno genre, they called him 'el Montunero de Cuba'.
He wrote the number 'Francisco Guayabal' that became a hit
via Beny Moré and played with Bebo Valdes and Noro Moralez.
I was one of the lucky visitors of the Amsterdam Carré Theater
when Wim Wenders made his movie of the Buena Vista Social Club,
an unforgettable evening.
This is an album on his own name and it's a great one.

Sparrow - Calypso Carnival, La 1968

73 year old 'Mighty Sparrow' played at the Amsterdam Paradiso
tonight, and I went to see him with a friend. Our legend played
with a band from Surinam and I must say, he can still sing
with strong voice, I didn't expect. At some points the band
didn't quite know how to play what Slinger Francisco ( his
real name ) wanted to hear but in general they did their
medly's not too bad. The old Sparrow is still a lady killer,
from the moment he got on stage he was flirting with some of
the women in front. When he got carried away, wiggeling his
hips, he forgot his lines and just mumbled; " banana nana
Banana nana." In despite of his being a dirty old man, he
is still a living legend, and it was great to see him.
This is an album of 40 years ago, Sparrow must have been 33.
Hope you like it, enjoy Mighty Sparrow's Calypso Carnival.

Oliver de Coque and his Expo '76, Olumo 1978

Oliver de Coque was a prolific guitarist who popularised the
'Ogene' dance, an inspiring style of Nigerian High Life.
Oliver Sunday Akanite was born in 1947 and started his music
career at the age of 11. He played on the Prince Nico Mbarga's
evergreen album "Sweet Mother" and recorded himself more than 70
albums that have next to great music, the funniest picture
covers around. King Chief Oliver de Coque died on june 20, 2008
in a hospital in Gbagada, Lagos, after struck by heart failure.
May he rest in peace. On this album 'de Coque' really makes true
his great name, on 'Baby don't cry' he seems to be calling chickens
with his guitar. For the occasion Oliver put on his most
special dress. Don't you just love that tigerprint ?

Lord Creator - Jamaica Time, Studio One, mid 60's

When it comes to handling smooth ballads, Lord Creator always
was a class of his own. In the 60's he recorded Calypso
and also Ska, but his style was quite different from what
others were doing those days. Lord Creator was born Kentrick
Patrick in San Fernando, Trinidad, but spent a lot of years in
Jamaica. "When UB40 honoured the quality of his 'Kingston Town',
and included it on their 'Labour of Love' cover version album,
Creator was able to buy a house in Jamaica from the Royalties."

Absolutely crazy for some good samba, we've got us this 1977
record of Beth Carvalho. She's always in for some old fashion
