Laila Je T'Aime
Guitar music from the Western Sahel stripped-down regional styles to Western pop covers. Street musicians and professionals on the wing, with the occasional car horn or motorcycle rumble to boot.



Michael Hurley Back Home With Driftin' Woods
Precious 1964 recordings, top-notch though never previously released, part of the First Songs sessions for Folkways.



Ali Birra Ammalele
Imperial Bodyguard Band singer alongside Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gessesse who tuned his guitar like an oud. Oromo reasoning about love, existence and resistance, with a tasty Arab twang.



Sticks Over My Shoulder
Raw, rocking, haunting, exquisite George Mitchell recordings of Georgia bluesmen, 1979-1981... the real, rooted thing.



Boyd Rivers You Can't Make Me Doubt
Heavy, impassioned gospel scorchers, one side electric, the other acoustic. All previously unreleased, except Fire In My Bones, from the killer Tompkins Square compilation (and Last Time Around).



Alkibar Gignor La Paix
Underground garage rock from Mali smoking, lo-fi, punky, crunchy riff-outs side by side with beautiful acoustic performances, full of soul and rapture. Co-presented with Sahel Sounds.



Time Will Make A Change
Another brilliant Mississippi compilation. Gospel sevens, this time, double-strength: rough, raw, searing; mostly guitar-based ensembles and solo performers, sparse organ and drums. Ethel ain't messing.



Henry Thomas Bull Doze Blues
Twelve of the Texan's classics, drawn from twice that number of recordings between 1927-29. A travelling musician with a throw-back style often accompanying himself on the quills, like a pan flute.



Ural Thomas Fade Away
From 1970. Dozy funk like the bad-trip portion of Sly's There's A Riot Goin' On with local kids blowing into sawed off bed posts as if they were trumpets and an upful ballad. Back in at last.



Bruce Haack Electronic Record For Children
Joined by pianist Praxietellis Pandit and their space-cadet friend Chris. With songs about stuff like how the world sounds when you listen with your inner self, it's a bit of a longshot for the National Curriculum.



Agali Ag Amoumine Takamba
Rocking takamba from northern Mali hypnotic electrified traditional guitar accompanied by earworm calabash rhythms. With a bonus seven of acoustic performances. A Mississippi-Sahel co-presentation.




Lewlewal De Podor Yiilo Jaam
As featured on the terrific Ishilan n-Tenere compilation Pulaar guitar music from northern Senegal, ranging from acoustic bliss to edgier head-nodders. A co-production with the excellent Sahelsounds.



Ural Thomas Push 'Em Up
Third volume in the North Portland Music series the local legend in 1960 'an upbeat soul stomper for the dance floor and a pretty ballad with tight harmonies and lots of groove'.



Fanafody A Collection Of Recordings And Photography From Madagasikara, Volume 2
Charlie Brooks' field recordings from 2002, featuring violin players and throat-breathing singers.
