The Real Bahamas Volume II (LP)
Nonesuch H-72078, 1978 United States
All chilled and laidback, mainly accapella tracks. I have a soft spot for the tune Kneeling Down Inside The Gate. Fascinating to explore the roots of rhythm & blues. Copy has got a sizeable stamp on label and cover, p...

Various - This Is Soca (LP)
London LONDP 43 , 1987 United Kingdom
Soca compilation with the hits of 87 that includes a really good second record with David Rudder & Charlies Roots. My pick here is Scrunter with She Wants Me To Sing In The Party for a idea of how this record sounds. ...

Hugh Masekela - Waiting For The Rain (LP)
Jive 6.26155 BL, 1985 Germany
I am personally a huge fan of Masekela and despite this not being a rare pick there a handful of worthwhile tracks on here. Lots of jazzy / funky groovers but I opted for the boogie vibes on Run No More that is a grea...

Miriam Makeba - African Convention (LP)
Pläne 88 199, 1980 Germany
Thinking back just how often I have passed on this album while diggin in Germany is a joke. Despite the later recording date there are 2-3 good cuts here and a huge groover in Chicken (Kikirikki) with potential to be ...

Black Blood - Chicano / Rastiferia (7")
Mainstream MRL 5574 , 1975 United States

Amazing afro cuban breaks and beats by famous exotica percussionist Leon Johnson. Cheapo copy with most of side 1 scratched badly whereas the better side 2 is clean EX. Great album at a ridiculos price.

If you dig your steel drum action on the fast lane this is a recommended pick with the percussion heavy Bongo Night that takes off completely. Estaa Cubana is also good with rest of the album mostly cover versions of ...

Miriam Makeba - Iphi Ndilela (7")

Essential slice of Makeba! Afro breakbeat drum intro turns jazzy midtempo vocal groover and then she brings the break back into play. Nice one! Bob Dylan cover on the flip.
