This set compacts three of the Senegalese singer's 1980s albums onto a pair of discs, ditching three tracks in the process. This is not a drastic action, though, as Baaba Maal's Wango and Taara records have those same songs in common. So, the overlap has now disappeared, and disc one presents his Jambaajo original in its 10-song entirety. There is also room for a bonus cut, with the acoustic Tabakaly featuring Maal's longtime guitarist sideman (and mentor) Mansour Seck. All in all, this is another crammed collection of tunes from the budget-orientated Nascente label.

True to form, Boston-based label Cultures of Soul is set to release a compilation of obscure disco from a far-flung corner of the world. After forays into India and Brazil, they now turn their attention to South Africa. South Africa is home to a dizzying variety of musical genres and traditions, including some that look directly to American sounds for inspiration. In the late 70s and early 80s, many of the country s best young musicians were guided by funk. All over the world, disco was growing harder and more electronic, with new synthesizers entering the market every month.

Soul Jazz Records' new Nigeria Soul Fever is their first release to explore the vast wealth of Nigerian music recorded in the 1970s. The new album comes with introductory sleeve-notes by Bill Brewster (author of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life). Packed-full with Afro-Funk, Disco and Boogie all from Nigeria, this triple album/double CD set brings together a stunning collection of diverse West African sounds. Whilst a small handful of the artists featured (Joni Haastrup, Tee Mac, Christy Essien) have seen the light of day outside Africa, this is essentially a collection of killer tracks by an array of artists completely unknown outside of Nigeria.

Hog and Hominy: Soul Food from Africa to America (repost)

Hog and Hominy: Soul Food from Africa to America (Arts and Traditions of the Table: Perspectives on Culinary History) by Frederick Douglass Opie
English | June 9, 2010 | ISBN: 0231146396 | 256 Pages | EPUB | 18 MB

Frederick Douglass Opie deconstructs and compares the foodways of people of African descent throughout the Americas, interprets the health legacies of black culinary traditions, and explains the concept of soul itself, revealing soul food to be an amalgamation of West and Central African social and cultural influences as well as the adaptations blacks made to the conditions of slavery and freedom in the Americas.

Never released on CD

Hardly any info to find in the web about this record. There is 1 track by the Soul Throbs on the South African Sampler "Next Stop … Soweto Vol. 2", and there was a copy of this LP on sale at groovecollector for 80 Euros. If you would ask me, I'd compare them to Booker T., organ driven soul funk instrumentals. 2 tracks are with lead sax by Abraham Levuno, and 2 tracks with nice vocals by Sophie Thapedi. The band is from South Africa, but under the white fascists black musicians couldn't produce and publish music independently, therefore the LP was printed in Mozambique.
