A lucky-bag of fabulous music, from Cachao to Count Ossie, plus on DVD a freewheeling assemblage of Pathe newsreel, ranging from voodoo to flying fish. Tremendous work by SJ… warmly recommended.
Exciting, knockabout, charming, bit-naff blend of Afro-beat, pop, high-life and soul — a kind of Lagotian Althea And Donna — drawn from their four Afrodisia LPs in the second half of the 1970s.
Brilliant digi dancehall rhythms — from Firehouse to Lenky — with some new stuff thrown in by the likes of Diplo and Harmonic 313.
A southern rock extravaganza on double-CD, with a 68-page booklet; and split over two gatefold double-LPs, with 8-page booklets.
The CDs come with a seventy-five-page booklet. Wonderful music, of course.
Featuring Leah Gordon’s fantastic photographs.
With oral histories and various short essays.
