    I don't know.
    They're fairly recent (were on ninjatune for while iirc).
    That album is superb.
    Not a bad track on it.

    Edit...Yes. Apparently they very much are. Released their 7th album this year!

  • Thanks, Ben, for looking when I was clearly to lazy to! I thought I hadn’t seen anything recently, but I am clearly wrong!
    IMHO, they’re the best of those keeping Afrobeat alive.

    Never heard of them, noted. Speaking of afrobeat fusion:

    Came across this unexpectedly today.
    It's a short video I took in The Black Cat in New Orleans a couple of years ago.
    Me and my Dad had gone there together for a week's holiday. (During the video you see him paying for a drink at the bar.) The two of us spent the whole week enjoying music together. This was our last night.
    He's dying of cancer at the moment, so this video has provided a route to some very happy memories for me today. I'm very glad I decided to suggest this trip to him.

    Very sorry to hear this Ben, but equally relieved that you have treasured memories, far too many people treat life as if it’s a practice run and realise too late that we get one shot at it.

    Also digging this the most, somewhat reminiscent of Polar Bear at points.

    I missed the original post, for some reason, Ben.
    What a great memory.

    Never heard of them, but I like it.
    More Cuba than Afrobeat? At least to my ears.

    I've just listened to some of it on my laptop speakers. I'll definitely give it another go on something better!

    Thanks.
    I can't agree more.
    Make the most of every relationship!

    It is Dave.
    It's a place I'll keep revisiting for as long I live. So I'll get the chance to trigger them too.

    Will give this a listen. Cheers.
  • I've been listening to this, Stephan Crump's Rhombal:
    As much as I like piano, I think I like pianoless trios and quartets even more.

  • Joe Lovano - Sounds of Joy


    I may have posted this before, but it's one of those unjustifiably obscure albums that I keep coming back to.

    Strange. The video isn't showing here - Firefox on Linux. They are elsewhere on the page.
    Anyway, we love dub (or at least Ben and I love dub), so great post!

    Of course, it may not actually be the best dub album in the world, this gives it some very stiff competition:



  • Hmmm, yes I noticed that the video presents in the link on your posts, but mine don’t.

    It seems the trick is to just paste the URL and not make it a live link. As a plain URL, Vanilla seems to recognise it as a video and pull it in automatically.

    Great stuff! Just got around to listening to it.

    I always go for Lee Scratch Perry, and on the UK side of things, there's Dennis Bovell's work on this:



    And the other volumes ;)

    Just got this version of Santana 1 from the US, unplayed and still wrapped:

    https://www.discogs.com/Santana-Santana/release/1857153

    Ripped to FLAC, definitely a great master of one of my favourite records, which wasn’t very well produced to begin with but it turns out one can polish a turd. I do own a US first issue LP of this, still in the factory wrapper but I’ve never been able to bring myself to open it, so bought a cd. I also bought the mofi 45 of this too. That’s enough Santana 1’s for now.
  • Shades of Time absolutely cooks on this version.
  • I'm not even sure I know the album.

    Must see if it's on Spotify.
  • Yes do! It's a stonking album as is the following Abraxas.
  • Yeah, I know Abraxas.
  • Seriously, this master just has to be heard-tonally it’s much nicer than other versions, it was mastered by this guy:

    https://www.discogs.com/artist/535318-Kevin-Boutote

    I don’t own a CD player, so just rip my stuff to FLAC. If any one wants to borrow this version for a listen do pm me. 

    I have the mofi abraxas hydrid sacd coming soon. Santana reputedly felt they’d not done the best job on the production of 1, and recruited a jazz specialist to work on abraxas. Apparently all previous issues had the channels accidentally reversed. 


  • I just rip all my stuff to FLAC, too. I don't have a CD player. But, I had the thought the other day that I could connect my Bluray player to my preamp so when someone brings round a CD (as they do, occasionally) we could listen to it after a fashion. Must dig out a phono lead.
    That's a generous offer about the CD.
    It's amazing how many famous recordings have something wrong with them. Kind of Blue running at the wrong speed comes to mind.
  • Weather Report - I Sing The Body Electric


    What a fantastic racket! I've had this album in one form or another since about '78, and it still gets better. I didn't like much of it when I first bought it.

    There's almost a punk intensity to the drumming in some places. I know, keep on taking the tablets, Dave.
