NOW AGAIN

The Zambians' second LP of funk, psych, and fuzzed-out Afrobeat. 64–page booklet includes interviews with Rikki Ilionga and co. The vinyl edition adds sides from rare sevens, 1972-6.







Bellyachers, Listen Songs From East Africa, 1938-46
The first half of the Something Is Wrong CD set, beautifully pressed and presented, with its own twelve-inch-square booklet.



Bulawayo Jazz Southern Rhodesia, 1950, '51, '52
In front, trumpet and tenor saxophone, dominated by a wailing alto sound you can trace through to Dudu Pukwana; the bottom end, trombone or tuba or double bass; banjos strumming away; military-style drumming.






Cazumbi African Sixties Garage Vol. 2
From the fuzzy garage of SA groups like The Gonks, to the raw beat of Ghana's Tall Emma, with wild representations from Cameroun, Madagascar and Mozambique, along the way. Fab.



Colonial Dance Bands Kenya, Tanganyika, Portuguese East Africa, Northern Rhodesia, Belgian Congo
1950 and 1952. A variety of dance-band styles, nostalgic, exotic and pioneering all at the same time: pros playing to Europeans in hotels; or enthusiasts, copying the radio, to African audiences.



Dur-Dur Band Dur-Dur
Precious, late-eighties dance music from Mogadishu. Big group — three horns, four singers plus three backing, two guitars, keys, drummer, two percussionists, bassist — choca with funk swagger and highlife shimmy.



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



Forgotten Guitars From Mozambique Portuguese East Africa, 1955, '56, '57
The roots of marrabenta — compelling guitar-playing, and gritty songs about everyday issues, like having kids, sleeping around, snobbery and the supernatural.



Rikki Ililonga And Musi-O-Tunya Dark Sunrise
Classic Zamrock, cooking up Hendrix and Taj Mahal, the Congolese rumba and Afro-beat.
