WEEKLY UPDATE 22/5 - RARE GROOVE
This week's theme is Rare Groove. From heavy-hitters as Roger And The Human Body (very rare Roger Troutman release), Rayfield Reid's killer soul/funk set "Treat you right", Labi Siffre's "Remember my song"and Eliminators' perennial "Loving explosion" to a sealed US original of Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul, Kool & The Gang's first and best album and a double serving of Mombasa.
Next week sees a big 60s and 70s soul special (plus some blues and R&B) including a large amount of 45s.

STRINGTRONICS - MINDBENDER
One of the most sought-after library albums of all times and for a good reason - a very consistent set featuring tunes by big names as Nino Nardini, Roger Roger and Barry Forgie. Start with "Safari Park", "Hunted" or "Tropicola" but the whole album is great and highly recommended! Reissue from 2015, plays at 45 rpm.
SPJÄRNSVALLET - AGAIN & AGAIN
Deep, eastern/afro-tinged jazz partly recorded around the same time as their rare 1975 LP, along with 2014 material made in tribute to the late Kjell Westling. The perfect sound for those into Archimedes Badkar, Don Cherry's "Organic society" and similar music.
D.R. HOOKER - THE TRUTH
One of the true gems in the lounge/loner psych bag. Has a soft, psychedelic vibe and hardly a weak track (which usually isn't the case with this type of record). Listen to the monster "Forge your own chains" and "I'm leaving you". 180 gram reissue of rare private press that will set you back many a coin.
ROLF & JOACHIM KÜHN QUARTET - RE-UNION IN BERLIN
Big German jazz rarity from 1965 including the wonderful "Mobile Waltz"! The rest of the album is a bit more on the advanced side of jazz but not completely out-there, listen to "The Mad Man" to get an idea. Reissue of very rare original.
HAILU MERGIA & THE WALIAS - TCHE BELEW
Stunning Ethiopian jazz/funk, a must-have if you're into Mulatu Astatke. Check clips from "Musicawi silt" & "Ibakish tarekigne". Reissue of ultra rare original on the Kaifa label.
EDDIE WARNER - PROGRESSIVE PERCUSSIONS
Quirky, psychedelic jazz with rough drums by the library master Eddie Warner. Has a rather unique, sloppy but well-crafted sound and should go well with most open-minded people as well as break-heads and electronic aficionados. Listen to "Brutus drums" and "Getting high", but I can safely say this is not a two-tracker.
FRED WILLIAMS - TELL HER
Few copies back in! Awesome lo-fi crossover soul, massive office favorite.
SAUN & STARR - LOOK CLOSER
One of the best new soul releases for years, late 60s/early 70s-sounding with two great voices.
ARIEL KALMA - LE TEMPS DES MOISSONS
Not fusion, not free jazz - more like expermental spiritual. A droning trip for mind and spirit, with effects-powered saxophone, filtered electric guitars and various ethnic percussion - listen to "Le temps des moissons" and "Bakafrika". The soundclip won't do them justice though, so your best bet is to buy it in good faith and enjoy at home. Nicely made reissue with an almost pearlescent cover, plus two bonus tracks not on the original.
PAINEL DE CONTROLE - RELAX / MALANDRINHO
Massive Brazilian boogie sides, especially "Relax" is lovely.
NDIKHO XABA AND THE NATIVES - SAME
Deep, afro-centric spiritual jazz set featuring Plunky Nkabinde that later formed Juju and Oneness of Juju. Listen to the stunning "Nomusa" that was featured on Jazzman's first volume of "Spiritual Jazz". Limited edition reissue of very rare US original on Trilyte.
PETE DUNAWAY / RITA LEE & TUTTI FRUTTI - SUPERMERCADO (SUPERMARKET) / AGORA E MODA
Amazing folky funk/soul from Pete Dunaway b/w a clubby groover from Rita Lee! Reissue 7" that comes well recommended.
BARIS MANCO - 2023
If you're only going to own one Turkish record, this 1975 masterpiece by Baris Manco could be that one. Rock with Turkish folk influences as well as cosmic krautrock.
ERKIN KORAY - ELEKTRONIK TÜRKÜLER
Another one of the essentials among Turkish rock, and not easy to find. Turkish folk sounds done in an electric fashion with superb bass lines and guitar play.
KOMEDA - BALLET ETUDES - THE MUSIC OF
Truly superb jazz set from 1963 by the Polish maestro sided by Jan Wroblewski, Allan Botschinsky, Roman Dylag and Rune Carlsson. Listen to "Crazy girl" and "Ballet etudes" - real stunners! Many superlatives here, but they are called for
PHILLIP WRIGHT - KEEP HER HAPPY
Brilliant 70s modern soul with a dash of funk, a perennial Miami favorite!
