Phil Manzanera – Diamond Head
Atco 1975

Phil Manzanera was most known as Roxy Music’s lead guitarist.
To me his solo albums always were favourite. Being the son of
a Colombian mother and an English father he was born in London
but lived in various South American countries during his childhood.
With artists like Robert Wyatt, Brian Eno and Andy Mackay and many
others. He worked with Steve Winwood, David Gilmour, John Cale,
Godley & Creme, Nico and John Wetton to name a few ..

Tam Tam Records 1973

Here we go again, from the magical music year 1973 we find
this sweet piece of compas from Haïti. Super Soline d’Haïti is
here with this 8 track album. Not a whole lot of information
is available online but according to Discogs this one is dated
as the first one in 1973. There is a self titled record but
appears to have been released around ’75. If anybody
knows more, let us share your knowledge please ..

Brigadier Jerry – Live at the Controls
at Jack Ruby Sound, featuring
Dennis Brown, Sammy Dread & Michael Prophet
Dance Hall Stylee Records 1983

From 1983 we’ve got this ultimate deejay toaster’s reggae
album with Brigadier Jerry live at the controls. The record
gives no information what so ever. Label and sleeve both
show the same few words, front- and backside. It sounds
so nice and pure as if you are there at Jack Ruby Sound
yourself. Even some mess up’s are left on the record.
Treasured it since it came out in 1983 ..

Prince Far I – “Under Heavy Manners”
Joe Gibbs Records 1980

As many of you may know, we had us a bunch of records
on the marvelous On-U Sound label with amongst others
the mighty, ‘Voice of Thunder’, Prince Far I. Unfortunately
On-U Sound’s label manager summoned me to remove all
of their records. Fortunately however we still have some of
the Prince’s original records like this one on Joe Gibbs Records.
From 1977 and beautifully produced by Joe Gibbs, this is ‘Under
Heavy Manners’. I’d say get it and spread it like you’re used to ..
(we’ve got the 1980 re-issue)

Zoals velen van jullie waarschijnlijk weten hadden we ooit
behoorlijk wat platen op het geweldige On-U Sound label
met onder andere, de ‘Voice of Thunder’, Prince Far I. Helaas
sommeerde On-U Sound’s label manager me al hun platen
van de Global Groove te verwijderen. Gelukkig hebben we
van de Prins ook nog enkele originele elpees zoals deze op
Joe Gibbs Records. Uit 1977 en prachtig geproduceerd door
Joe Gibbs, is dit ‘Under Heavy Manners’. Ik zou zeggen,
Down, deel en luister wederom naar Prince far I ..

Tim Buckley – Sefronia
Discreet 1974

Tim Buckley, jeff’s father, has been an idol since I first
laid my ears on his music late seventies. It all started
with Look at The Fool, his last album. Tim sadly died
after taking an overdose of heroin age 28, june 29th,
1975. He started as a folk singer but his style changed
to soul, jazz, psychadelica, avant-garde over the years.
One of the greatest voices ever in seventies pop music.

Goedemorgen groevers, Ik kreeg een bericht van Gloomood,
hij of zij wees me op een post uit 2009 met slechte cover foto.
Ik heb deze maar eens opnieuw gemaakt en de file aangepast
aan de eisen van vandaag. Wat hebben we hier .. ?
Een re-post van een van Bezerra’s belangrijkste platen, zijn
songs staan zonder uitzondering bol van maatschappij kritische
teksten, zeer humoristisch en vol ironie. Het criminele en drugs
gerelateerde milieu komt ruimschoots aan bod.

Good morning groovers, I received message of Gloomood
saying one of our 2009 posts still had a quite poor sleeve
picture. It was time to restore the file and the post.
What do we have here .. ?
A re-post of one of Bezerra da Silva’s most important albums.
His songs are always display of political and society critics.
Very humoristic lyrics about criminals and drug related
matters.
