Hij is uit 1976, dit juweeltje van Ifang Bondi en de Afro Mandingue
Sounds. Sfeervolle plaat, op het Disques Griot label, die ons mee
neemt op een dromerige reis door West Afrika. Oorspronkelijk
heette ze de Super Eagles en komen uit Gambia. In 1969 en 1974
hebben ze diverse Europese hoofdsteden bezocht. Deze plaat is
opgenomen in de Jandeer Night Club in Dakar, Senegal en bevat
songs in diverse stijlen, mandingo, pop, mbalax, zeg het maar..

It is from 1976, this jewell by Ifang Bondi and the Afro Mandingue
Sounds. Very atmospheric record, on the Disques Griot label, which
takes us on a dreamy journey through West Africa. Originally they
were called the Super Eagles and come from Gambia. In 1969 and
1974 they visited various European capitals. This album was recorded
in the Jandeer Night Club in Dakar, Senegal and contains songs in
various styles such as mandingo, pop, mbalax, you tell us..

What Discogs fails to tell us is that there is an error made on the
label and on the backsleeve. The numbers Xaleli Africa and Saraba
have been switched, so I kindly switched them back for you..

Pink Floyd – Relics

pink-floyd-front

Normally I don’t post a lot of popmusic. September the 6th, Pink
Floyd’s drummer Nick mason is coming to Amsterdam with his
supergroup and they are going to play a number of songs featured
on this old collector. Since I’ve bought tickets, I couldn’t resist ripping
this album to be able playing it digitally. Of course you can join me
doing so, enjoy this piece of nostalgic popmusic with me.
Songs from 1967, 1968 and 1969..

Normaal gesproken plaats ik nauwelijk pop muziek hier. Deze uitzondering
moest echter gemaakt worden. Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason komt op
6 september a.s. naar Amsterdam en zal dan een aantal van de nummers
komen spelen die op ‘Relics’ staan. Ik kon de verleiding niet weerstaan deze
te digitaliseren om hem onderweg te kunnen beluisteren. Vanzelf laat ik jou
hier ook van meegenieten. Nummers uit 1967, 1968 en 1969..

Ik verkeerde in de veronderstelling dat ik deze plaat al eens
gepost had maar dat blijkt op een blog te zijn geweest welk
ik niet meer gebruik. Ramdog’s Roughsite was de naam en
toen de diverse webhosters mijn files hadden weggegooid,
heb ik de site leeg achtergelaten. je kunt er nog wel heen maar
er staat niets meer op. Hoog tijd dus om deze prachtplaat op
de GG te plaatsen. Jackie Lomax’ ‘Home is in my Head’ uit 1971.
Luister en besef, dit is prachtig..

I was certain I posted this album in the past. It’s true, I did but
on a blog I do not use anymore. It was on Ramdog’s Roughsite
which I left empty when webhosters threw away my files. You
can still go there but there’s nothing left to download. About
time I posted this wonderful record here at the GG. Listen to
Jackie Lomax’ ‘Home is in my Head ‘ from 1971 and come to
realise, this is beautiful music..

Love – Four Sail
Elektra 1969

love-front

love-back

In m’n vroege jaren als muziekverzamelaar was het voornamelijk
pop muziek waar ik warm voor liep. Op de een of andere manier
duik ik in december altijd in de kast op zoek naar oude juweeltjes
die ik dan weer herbeleef. Deze plaat van Love is er een uit 1969
die ik nog altijd met erg veel plezier beluister. Prachtige muziek,
artwork dat het oog streelt, zo’n hoes alleen al. Al draaiend ga je
vanzelf terug in de tijd. probeer eens iets anders,
luister naar Love.. <3

In my early years as a music collector it was mostly pop music
that caught my attention. Somehow in december I always dive
into the past, going through the records searching for old time
jewells I do than relive. This album by Love is one from 1969 I
still listen to with lots of pleasure. Beautiful sound, artwork that
catches the eye, its cover alone. Playing such a record makes you
go back in time. Try something else for a change,
listen to Love .. <3

John Martyn – Live at Leeds
a rare evening with John Martyn, Danny Thompson
and John Stevens, Dig It ! Plane 1987

john-martyn-front

john-martyn

Zo aan het eind van het jaar maken we altijd wat uitstapjes naar
muziek die je hier niet zo vaak tegenkomt. Even los van de tropische
stijlen. Verandering van smaak doet vaak goed en daarom vandaag iets
van vroeger. Dit is een plaat die ik zeer veel heb gedraaid eind jaren 70
en ook later in de 80er jaren. Ik was in de veronderstelling dat ik Solid
Air van John Martyn al eens geplaatst had maar ik vergis me daar. Die
komt zeker nog eens. Nu deze live registratie, opgenomen in Leeds in
1975 aan de Universiteit en origineel uitgebracht in 1976. Dit is de her-
uitgave uit 1987. Ga er eens goed voor zitten, je zweeft er volledig
op weg, super sfeervolle plaat die je niet wil missen..

Towards the end of the year we often take you in directions you’re
not used to here at the Global Groove. Away from the tropical styles
we normally post, variation is the spice of life they say so today some-
thing completely different. This is an album I played very much at the
end of the seventies and through the eighties as well. I thought I posted
Solid Air by John Martyn already but appearantly I am mistaking. That
one will certainly come one fine day. Today a live registration, recorded
at Leeds University in 1975 and originally released in 1976. This is the
re-release from 1987. Sit down and let it happen to you, the music
floats away, very atmospheric experience you don’t want to miss..

01 – Inside out
02 – Solid air
03 – Make no mistake / Bless the weather

maar nog steeds prima te beluisteren is deze Animalisms, check..

When I woke up this morning the world looked competely different.
Maybe a good moment to post and listen some completely different

New Orleans Special
The Wild Magnolias, Polydor 1974

the-wild-magnolias-voorkant

the-wild-magnolias-achterkant

Mijn eerste encounter met New Orleans funky muziek moet
eind jaren zestig hebben plaats gevonden. Toen Lee Dorsey
de hit ‘Working in the coalmine’ had. Ik was nog te jong om het
te beseffen. Pas eind jaren zeventig drong het allemaal tot me
door. Met de platen van Dr. John, the Meters e.d. werd duidelijk
hoe geweldig deze muziek is. Het was nóg veel later toen ik kennis
maakte met Bo Dollis en de Wild Magnolias. Hier hebben we hun 1974
album. Een andere groep New Orleans indianen was The Wild Tchoupitoulas,
een soortgelijke band die ook in de jaren zeventig opereerde. Met de
broertjes Neville van de Meters en geproduceerd door Allen toussaint
die ook de hit ‘Working in the coalmine’ had geschreven. Tijdens de Mardi
Gras, het New Orleans carnaval komt het allemaal samen, indianen bont
gekleed de straat op, de muziek uit het stof, één groot feest in de straten.
Hier zijn wat plaatjes om het verhaal kracht bij te zetten, luister..

My first encounter with New Orleans funky music must have taken place
during he end of the sixties when Lee Dorsey had a hit with ‘Working in the
coalmine’. I was too young to realise though. Only by the end of the seventies
it started to become clear to me. listening to Dr. John and the Meters I found
out just how great this music is. Still much later I got aquainted with the music
of Bo Dollis and the Wild magnolias. Today we’ve got their 1974 album. Another
New Orleans Indian group was The Wild Tchoupitoulas, with the brothers Neville
of the Meters and produced by Allen Toussaint who wrote ‘Working in the coalmine’.
They operated around the same time, mid seventies. During the Mardi gras, the
New Orleans carnival, it all comes together, Indians go out dresed in colours and
the streets of New Orleans turn into a big party. Do check these records
to find out, listen and agree, this is wild party stuff..

O Melhor de Ed Lincoln
Musidisc 1971

Ed Lincoln, voorkant

De plaatjes van Ed Lincoln beginnen steeds meer een cult-status
te krijgen. Deejays around the planet gebruiken samples van de
nummers die toch veelal uit de jaren zestig dateren. De sound die
hij toen ontwikkelde klinkt ook vandaag nog als een klokkie..Zelf
mag ik het ook vaak op feestjes opzetten en het publiek gaat
er altijd weer goed op, luister en zeg zelf, coool spul..

The records of Ed Lincoln are more and more develloping a
cult-status. Deejays around the globe use samples of the tracks
that are mostly from the sixties. The sound he created in those days
is still hot today and always seem to score at parties.

Nils Lofgren – Cry Tough
A&M Records Inc. 1976

Nils Lofgren, front

Okay folks, come back in time with me. Do you remember
half way the seventies we were listening mainly to popmusic.
Guitars were and are still the instrument that can bring us
into extasy. Over the years one records certain guitarparts
in the brain, somehow when they pass by you know every
little sound, every slip of the fingers, it’s like you’re there,
inside that incredible sweet stroke, that pull of the string.
Okay, enough laba laba, the lp I recorded for you to taste
is this one by the magnificent Nils Lofgren. I can dream
this album, listened to it so much in those days, his
skills are unequalled. Something else for a change,
a treat for guitarlovers like yourself maybe..

01 – Cry tough
02 – It’s not a crime

Osvaldo Nunes & the Pop’s – Ta’ Tudo Aí !
Equipe 1974

Osvaldo Nunes, front

It is from 1974, Rio de Janeiro Brasil, on the Equipe label
and quite something different than one would expect.
Osvaldo Nunes was here before with a straight samba
album but the one we have here today has a much more
poppy sound. It is samba but with more guitar and organ,
mostly we hear a more accoustic sound with violão,
cavaquinho and cuíca and such. Osvaldo Nunes and
the Pop’s really rock ! Give it a spin, listen
and make up your own mind..
