Oby Onyioha - I Want To Feel Your Love 1981 (Time)


Label : Time

Value :

Oby Onyioha has a very 80s look on the cover – and the album's got a strong 80s sound, too – almost in the hipper spectrum of underground soul on the New York scene during the post-disco generation! The best cuts are the groovers – like the snapping title cut and a few others, which almost seem to pick up on a roller skating vibe in the rhythms – creating this cool, bubbling groove that only gets better when Oby lays her sweet vocals over the top!

Murphy Williams ‎– She Is My Woman 1981 (Taretone)


Label : Taretone

Value :

She Is My Woman is Murphy William’s loose, funky and spontaneous call to the dance floor. It’s an infectious collection of good-time tunes that the band seem to be enjoying as much as the listener. Williams was a stalwart of the Nigerian music scene, joining Godwin Omabuwa’s Cassanova Dandies at 17 before becoming one of the two lead vocalist of The Apostles from Aba. He was famous for his distinctive four octave voice, a voice that legendary label boss, Godwin Tabansi decided was perfectly suited to the new disco sound that was gripping Nigeria. The title track gets the party started with Felix Liberty providing the good-time guitar riffs, Friday Pozzo on congas and Sonny Enang keeping it light on keyboards. The vibe is tight and bright, breathy a breezy charm into disc-tied versions of Igbo folk songs ‘Selense’ and ‘Ima Obi O.’ The undoubted highlight of the album is ‘Get On Up’, a certifiable disco classic that would slay any dance floor anywhere in the world. It’s funky, it’s fun and by the time the lyrics implore the listener to get on up and dance their feet have already been convinced by the music. Put it on and it’s guaranteed to get any party started. - Peter Moore

Black Children Sledge Funk Co. Band ‎– Vol. 3 - Aviation Grand Father 1979 (RTS)


Label : RTS

Value :

Their name may be a mouthful, but the Black Children Sledge Funk Band have a groove that's nice and lean – a wicked blend of basslines, percussion, and lots of riffing guitar – plus these very cool keyboards that wander over the grooves and give the whole thing a sweetly spacey vibe! These guys are definitely on the sharper side of the Afro funk spectrum – and occasionally have some trippy elements in their music – especially when the vocals come together from the group members, which creates a heady quality that lives up to the album's great cover image.

Various - Formation 60 (modern jazz from eastern germany Amiga 1957-69) 1998 (Jazzanova Compost Records)


Label : JCR

Value :

Slightly off-kilter, and pleasantly so, Formation 60 was compiled by Jazzanova, representing a unique blend of Latin influenced bossa induced bop, jazz waltzes and other swinging numbers from the former German Democratic Republic … of all places. I know this sounds unbelievable, but European jazz was and is far more reaching in scope and depth than most people, even jazz aficionados, have ever dared to dream. The work found here is ambitious, possessing a lyrical language that is rewarding, seeming almost designed to exist in the moment, as if these artists had an inkling that their sound was being presented for those in attendance, while perhaps dreaming that the curtains would one day be pulled back to shed a bit of light onto what was being laid down in parts of the world that for many years were shrouded in mystery.By R. Kesler
