Nat Birchall - Sax. Matthew Halsall - Trumpet. I have a previous mix of Matthew Halsall if you're keen as mustard on this stuff. Kronos quartet - in existence since '73, and players of a broad range of music, with many pieces written specifically for them. A decent selection here, featuring global pieces and modern classical. Almost a Tango. Afro-Tropicalism and similar flavours. Psychomagik reworks of Funk stuff peppered with chilli dust.
Upbeat African Mix. Easy going African mix. All manner of chicanery - a little languid, a little trompete, a little skaska, and a little day for the dead.
Another fatback slice of prime Funkery. Happy Noodlin' time from friends of the Dead and that lovely Cosmic America sound. All concluded with a 23min epic from Father Fahey himself. The irrepressible Barbara Dane. Close to her 93rd year, Miss Dane has had a hell of a ride. The last 3 tracks are from her last album, at the age of 88!
There'll be a 2nd mix, culled from her more combative oeuvre of protest music. Heavy, Motorik Psych, designed to be playing at screaming volume, driving at insane speeds down roads in the hottest part of the day.
John Prine Another one gone to the Pox. Bookended with funny ruminations on the afterlife and the death bit. Music, the best way of digesting time. Bill Withers - A regular guy who came to music in his early 30's after being in the navy and working as an assembler. This guy oozes warmth and sings of love, loss and longing. Funk to the fore, with blasts of rare and unusual basement recordings, sessions on the fly, cocaine seat-of-the-pants rip throughs, and pearls in the bottom of the boxes, all here to marvel at.
Some of these cuts are a little top end, so I've lowered the recording vol. Hope they're ok. Zen-calming meditation music for deep self-isolators in lockdown mode. This sometimes isn't the easiest of listens, that being tempered by light and dark, but very rewarding with a deep ears and a well rounded cheese box.
Persian Underground Music is in a very healthy state, within the repressive state. Melange of global sounds, mainly plaintive, with some dense percussion on the FourthWorld stuff, a parade of subcontinental action, but also a little slight funk, and an ending of spiritual jazz. African party starts here. Manu Dibango - Been a spell since the last Disco thang, so here goes with some rare cuts, some remixed, that have been saved from oblivion after years of nasal damage and perforations and twitching alone in squalor in the projects, or something.
Early Johnny Guitar Watson. For some, this is great music, for others, they go and eat chain. A World Fusion music.
All hail Bobbie Gentry. Bobbie had a spate of albums in the 60's which tailed off with a bit of Vegas and tv, but her music crafted some deft lyrics bout her home town and later her struggles with fame. All the sam, she has that southern gumption. Pull up a porch. Will Oldman, aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy , has been at this for a fair while now, peddling his mendicant music around, generally writing odd, mordant, songs of love, death and sex.
Lets have a delve in and see what pearls we can surface with. Another bunch of Afro slabs. Easier on the tempo, but several kick up some dust after their languid intros. Afro dance time! Lee Morgan - bell weatherman of the trumpet. What started off as a mix of more melodic and gentler Indie vibrations soon descended into the black hole maelstrom of heavy reverb strummathons that previous mixes of this bent subscribe heavily to.
Still, great fun to have in the car, ripping along like a nutter. That neo-swing thing that emerged in the late 90's and erupts its St. Vitus dance itch every few years.

Shipping Info All orders are processed and shipped within 2 business days of receipt. M Mint I don't use this grade. M- Mint Minus A near perfect, probably unplayed record. Will satisfy all but the most demanding collector. VG Very Good A used, reasonable copy. There will be obvious signs of wear and the possibility of light surface noise between tracks or during quiet passages, but still quite nice.
