Terumasa Hino Quintet - Snake Hip 1969 (Super Fuji Discs)

Label :  Super Fuji Discs

Value :

A fantastic little record – some of the earliest funk work we've ever heard from the legendary Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – featured here on two tracks for the soundtrack of Snake Hip! First up is "On The Corner" – a tune that's got lots of heavy electric piano in the rhythms – while Hino really soars out with a soulful solo that's some of his most hard-hitting work of the 60s – especially when he riffs out over these heavy drums!

Janko Nilovic ‎- Chorus 1974 (Editions Montparnasse 2000)

Label : Editions Montparnasse 2000

Value :

Very groovy work from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a set that's every bit as funky as some of his other records, but one that has a slightly different twist as well! The "chorus" in the title is appropriate – as there's a flurry of wordless vocals in the mix of this one – a group who draw from some surprisingly soulful currents to appear on some of the album's best tracks with a style that's more groovy soul ensemble than other uses of chorus styles at the time! Given the mod styles of the tunes, the whole thing almost feels like some lost funky Galt MacDermot stage production – especially as the lead female singer in the group has an especially great range, and might even be a better-known soul singer working without any credit on the date. Janko's blend of keyboards, basslines, and other instrumentation is wonderfu!By Dusty groove.

Alfa Mist ‎- Antiphon 2017 (Pink Bird Recording Co)

Label : Pink Bird Recording Co

Value : https://alfamist.bandcamp.com/

A producer called Alfa Mist. Alfa Mist makes brilliant, multilayered hip hop and instrumentals – often featuring some of the best of the UK’s vocal and MC talent (previous album’s featured Tom Misch and Lester Duval). His latest album release is ‘Antiphon’; a beautiful album of creatively executed hip hop beats with a real jazz and soul sensibility.
‘Antiphon’ has been based around a conversation Alfa Mist had with his brothers – and although undeniably influenced throughout by hip hop, the melancholy notes that come through on each track make it a more complex and moving beast than your usual head-nod hip hop LP. My personal favourite tracks are ‘Breathe’ featuring the eerie vocals from Kaya Thomas-Dyke and ‘Errors’ a track that epitomises Alfa’s mastery of chilled out jazz and is soul soothing and sonically vibrant in equal measure.

The Square Set - Featuring 'Silence Is Golden' 1967 (Continental Records)

Label : Continental Records

Value :

The Square Set was a 1960s rock band from Cape Town South Africa, known for their songs Silence is Golden (SA number 1 Hit (1967)) "Carol Corina" (SA number 10 hit (1968)), and "That's What I Want" (international number 1 hit in Brazil, Argentina, and Portugal (1971-1972)).
The band formed in March 1966 and was called Neville Whitmill and the Humans. Founder members Nol, Neville, Derek and Keith rehearsed daily for 6 months composing new songs and covers before contracting their first professional gig at the Clifton Hotel.

Nol Klinkhamer hailed from the Conservetoire of Music in Holland having a degree in Jazz played piano, organ and the vibraphone. Neville Whitmill a Soul singer from Cape Town had influences from Buddy Holly, Ray Charles, Ottis Redding, Marvin Gaye. Derek Marks from Cape Town enjoyed rock bass playing with influences from bands like The Beatles, Small faces, Dave Clark 5 and Keith Moffat from Cape Town also enjoy playing Rock music. During the rehearsal stage they landed a gig at the "Stables nite Club" in Church Street Cape Town which gave them a venue to hone and perfect their craft. The venue was usually packed to capacity to hear the band. At this time the band decided to record their music and in August 1966 met Ian Martin (recording engineer) and Lindsay du Plessis (owner) of A.V.S studios Bree Street CT. It was at this time that a name change was much needed. During a studio break the four got together to thrash out names and it was Nol Klinhamer who suggested "The Square Set".

The band combined soul vocals and jazz organ (with the Hammond organ growing in popularity at the time) with rock bass and drums. The Hammond sound can be heard on most of The Square Set songs.

The previously unreleased 'Silence Is Golden' had a makeover with Graham Beggs at the helm and was released on Gallos Continental label in or about March 1967. It reached number 1 on the Springbok radio charts around July 1967.This led to the release of the bands first full album, 'Silence Is Golden'.By Wikipedia

'That's What I Want', a song first recorded by UK group The Marauders in 1963, was also recorded by by The Ronnie Singer Sound, a Cape Town band Marks had previously worked with. The latter version was given to The Square Set to record. The song was changed to accommodate the lineup and added to the 'Silence Is Golden' album. This song was later released in South America on the Decca label and rose to number 1 in Brazil, Argentina 1971 and number 1 in Portugal in 1972.
