V/A -- Música Popular do Nordeste 1 (1973, Brasil - Discos Marcus Pereira)"






"This historic recording is the first part of an important four-volume documentation of the popular music of Northeast Brazil,Música Popular do Nordeste. It was conceptualized and realized by the producer,Marcus Pereira, through his Discos Marcus Pereira, which also produced several other recordings devoted to the preservation of Brazilian music. The Quinteto Violado was charged with the research for the whole series, also participating as a supporting group. This first volume brings the lively rhythm of the frevo in its varied styles (frevo-canção; frevo de rua, with original arrangements performed by the Banda Municipal do Recife; frevo de bloco; and even the unprejudiced frevo elétrico, or electric frevo, performed by the Trio Elétrico Tapajós) and the most important composers in this genre (Nelson FerreiraCapibaIrmãos Valença, João Santiago, Luís Gonzaga de Figueiredo, Ademir Araújo, Geraldo Santos, and Luís Bandeira). While the artistic merits of the singer Zélia Barbosa and the quality of the recording process may be questioned, this is a fundamental piece of research, and a winner of the most important prizes of its period (Estácio de Sá, granted by the Image and Sound Museum of Rio de Janeiro, and Noel Rosa, from the Association of Press Critics of São Paulo)." (Allmusic)

A sunny showcase of diverse frevo styles out of Recife in NE Brasil. Its also yet another proper gem kindly lent to GC by one DJ Cuica. Big ups! Check this Trio Eletrico track, below. Bonkers! I'm only sorry I couldn't get this up before Carnival. So it goes. Enjoy it, or maybe even don't (for Lent).

Exuma (1970 *Mercury SR 61265) Flac + 320"





The debut record from righteous Afro-Bahamian songwriter Macfarlane Gregory Anthony Mackey, aka Exuma. His earliest work is an unreal melange of heavy folk dirges, pounding junkanoo ruckus, and the groaning incantations of mythically just, voudoun enlivened cataclysms of spiritual and material oppressions in our brave new world. Proper chant down Babylon vibes. Exuma's records have long been a staple of the countless hauntologically-minded and/or whateverly freak-folked RSS electroducts we've been privy too for years, now. I know I've dropped him here, before. Hot on the heels of GC's recent Exuma II drop, here's a lossless/320 upgrade, ripped by yours truly with the help of my friend DJ Cuica, who kindly lent it my way to share the love of this astounding record. Huge thanks! Full scans included. Enjoy.

Javād Ma'roufi -- Golden Dreams & Other Romantic Melodies (Iran, 197x / SARLP-500)"

  


"Javad Maroufi (جواد معروفی)  was born in Tehran in 1919. He was one of the first musicians who chose to perform Persian music on the piano. Piano and violin were brought to Persia during the reign of the Qajar King Nassereddin-Shah. In the beginning, these instruments could only be found in the royal palaces and the homes of the nobility. Qolamreza Salar Moazez, Motamedolmolk Yahyaian, and Mahmoud Mofakham were among the first musicians who introduced the piano in Persia. Alinaqi Vaziri taught piano in his music school, and later, prominent musicians like Moshirhomayoun Shahrdar, Hossein Ostovar, Morteza Mahjoubi, and Javad Maroufi were the ones who were admired by the lovers of this instrument and by ordinary people. Maroufi was the son of Moussa Maroufi, a renowned player of the tar. Mousa was the best student of Darvish Khan and Alinaqi Vaziri. He paid special attention to his son Javad’s musical education. After completing elementary school, Javad Maroufi attended Alinaqi Vaziri's School of Music. He started with the tar, but turned to the piano after a few years. Maroufi graduated from Vaziri’s School of Music in 1932. He went on to receive a diploma from the Tehran Conservatory, where he studied Western music. He believed that, in order to be able to play Persian music on the piano, one should also master the techniques of Western music. Maroufi began working at Radio Iran when it was established in 1941. He collaborated closely with the great Rouhollah Khaleghi as a piano soloist, as well as an arranger of works of other composers. He taught piano, music theory, and solfege at the School of National Music for many years. He also composed many original works for piano solo. Maroufi passed away in 1994." (Rouhollah Khaleghi Artistic Center)

Here's a much needed re-rip of this wistful, yet contemplative, solo set of Persian piano compositions by Javād Ma'roufi. Golden Dreams is a longtime personal favorite from my collection, highly recommended, we'll say, for any other homeless wanderers who've found solace in the sounds of Tsegue Maryam Guebrou. Romantic regional piano solos; Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances, as another example, are slowly becoming a strong fascination, here. Do any discerning readers out there have further recommendations?

Waynell Jones -- The Chicken Song & Jaybird Boogie (1984 *High Water 424)"



'High Water Recording Company is proud to introduce the first record by Waynell Jones, an artist with a truly distinctive sound. His music is downhome blues flavored with country and wester, modern rhythm and blues, and old-time songster material. It is a sound forged by years of performing music for a living on the streets of his home town of Henderson, Tennessee, playing for every kind of audience, black and white, young and old. Waynell was born in 1926 near Henderseon in rural Chester County and had lived there and in nearby Humboldt, Tennessee, his entire life. All of his thirty-nine aunts and uncles played instruments, and by the age of fifteen Waynell was playing guitar. He played for house parties and country picnics before becoming a street musician. For the past eighteen years he has been employed at Freed-Hardeman College in Henderson and now plays blues mostly for students and at special programs at the college. He is also the guitarist for the Gospel Travelers, a local community singing group. His years of performing in the community and at the college have made him one of Henderson's best known and best loved citizens. Both songs on this record are ones that he put together himself. "Jaybird Boogie" is the first song he ever made up. He was sitting on a country store porch playing his guitar, and the owner offered him a soft drink if he would make up a piece called "jaybird Boogie." When Waynell finished, the man gave him a whole case of drinks!' (David Evans, cover notes)


Waynell Jones -- The Chicken Song & Jaybird Boogie (1984 *High Water 424)


Produced by Dr. David Evans for the High Water Recording Company at Memphis State University in Memphis, TN.

Exuma -- Exuma II (1970 *Mercury SR 61314) Flac + 320"





"Exuma, the Obeah Man, was born in Cat Island, Bahamas and christened as Tony McKay; he grew up through Canaan Lane off Shirley Street, Nassau, Bahamas. Drawing on the traditional Bahamian folk songs, the infectious beat of Junkanoo, ring play, myths and linguistic idioma, Exuma, through his musical recordings, performances and paintings, has promoted Bahamian heritage and extended Bahamian music throughout the world moreso than any other contemporary Bahamian recording artist." (Nina Simone Database)


Righteous Afro-Bahamian songwriter Macfarlane Gregory Anthony Mackey, aka Exuma, sang it with depth. At times, he comes on like a man possessed, defiantly exorcising himself. His earliest work is an unreal melange of heavy folk dirges, pounding junkanoo ruckus, and the groaning incantations of mythically just, voudoun enlivened cataclysms of spiritual and material oppressions in our brave new world. Proper chant down Babylon vibes. Exuma's records have long been a staple of the countless hauntologically-minded and/or whateverly freak-folked RSS electroducts we've been privy too for years, now. I know I've dropped him here, before. This is my flac rip of Exuma II. Baal destroys me. Some contend that this record's uneven. Mayhaps its more of a for madmen only kind of thing. Nahmean? Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Paz.

Chaitanya Hari Deuter, Govindas, Deva Renu, Nivedano & Rupesh : Basho's Pond (Rajneesh Music, 1985)"




"Between sounds of music there are gaps of silence. The authentic music consists not of sounds, but of the gaps. Sounds come and go; those gaps remain. And music can make you aware of those gaps more beautifully than anything else; hence I have to say that music comes next to silence. But it is possible even the musician may not be aware of it, unless his music is his meditation too. Then, soon, the shift from sounds to silence." (Bagwan Shree Rajneesh, aka Osho)




“From Basho’s Pond, past Rajneesh Mandir, winding through downtown Rajneeshpuram, and out to the airport were people. People dressed in red, playing musical instruments, singing, dancing, waving goodbye to their Master. The faces! The faces! Musicians followed the car all the way to the airport, some running all the way carrying their Brazilian drums. I saw faces of people who years before had been dull, and now were transformed, shiny and alive. Osho sat and namasted His people for the last time in Rajneeshpuram.” (excerpt from Diamond Days With Osho, by Ma Prem Shunyo)

Pan-Asian instrumental new age steppers, featuring our man Deuter, himself, in full-tilt metaphysical enlightenment mode. A woodwound percussive medley for us Tomorrow People. Ecstatic-dancing to Pure Moods/Tubular Bells is admittedly  something of the vibe, here, but...And blame it on personal Rajneesh fascination; I've been dropping into Basho's Pond here lately, a bit more than I might even like to admit. These tracks were all recorded during live Satsang celebrations at the now-infamous Rajneeshpuram in eastern Oregon, late 1985. A "cult favorite", if you will.

Olivia Tremor Control : Opera House EPs (1996) + Black Swan Network : The Late Music (1997)"

Another freshly ripped installment of late-90's artifacts culled from the remains of my long-lost, recently found, cd collection from mine own younger days. These two drops offer up some of the weirder long-form, lo-fi concrete experimentations out of the OTC camp. Out-of-print rarities, both.






The highfalutin lo-fi interactivity that Olivia Tremor Control first explored with the ambient bonus disc included on early pressings of Dusk at Cubist Castle reached its apex with the vinyl version of "The Opera House." A quadraphonic odyssey spread across two 7"s, each featuring the titular psych-pop nugget that leads off Cubist Castle backed with differing musique concrète experiments clocking in at just under 15 minutes apiece, the presentation allows for listeners to create unique songs by playing back the records simultaneously in various temporal combinations and RPM speeds. Similar in conception to the Flaming Lips' Zaireeka, "The Opera House" requires three turntables for maximum mindf*ck action, but the extra effort is worth it. Like those old "Choose Your Own Adventure" books on which kids of the '80s grew up, the paths and possibilities "The Opera House" lays out are endlessly labyrinthine and completely immersive.

""The Late Music, was born out of a small message hidden in the liner notes of The Olivia Tremor Control's Music from the Unrealized Film Script, Dusk at Cubist Castle, requesting that people submit recordings of dream descriptions to the band. The album consisted of seven untitled pieces incorporating the submissions with different other ambient sounds and musical fragments. (Wikipedia)

Amps For Christ -- Circuits (Vermiform, 1999) *Flac + 320"




"Circuits was originally released in 1999 on the Vermiform label. It was well received, even charting on CMJ. Comprised of stellar originals, Scottish, English and North American folk songs and Child ballads, biblical lore, and choice pop folk cover tunes, Circuits is singular in its approach. Heavily referencing Steeleye Span and Pentangle’s moves in working with songs of the British Isles, as well as Jean Ritchie and North American Appalachian songlines in general, as well as DIY nosenik modalities, AFC uniquely adds to the history of these songlines. This reissue puts Circuits on vinyl for the first time as a deluxe double LP with a gatefold cover and a full bonus side of unreleased material . Circuits includes AFC collaborator Tara Tavi (ex-Blue Silk Sutures, Bastard Noise, Savage Republic, currently of Auto Da Fe) who plays yangqin (Chinese hammer dulcimer) and sings. Former Man Is The Bastard drummer Joel Connell plays tablas and percussion." (Turned Word)

From the archives; A freshly ripped Flac / 320 offering of the very best album by Amps for Christ. Woefully out of print for years, now, Circuits was recently remastered by the superlative Timothy Stollenwerk for a fancy new double LP reissue (its first time on wax!) by Turned Word / Water Wing, and featuring a full side of primo bonus material. I highly recommend you snatch one up, while the gettin' is still good. This rip, though, is straight from the original cd, which is one of the very few plastic discs I kept around after my college daze. I'm basically re-upping this because it still appears to be OOP in any digital format. If anyone from AFC, Vermiform, et al, wants this masterpiece back down, please just say the word -- Your wish is my command. Paz.

XMAS DELIGHTS - The only listenable Christmas compilation...ever! (a Moahaha re-gift)"




Just in time to spread the yuletide cheer; an immaculate Christmas reshare from RYM's discerning Moahaha, friend of flawless tastes. In a genre that tends heavily toward mediocre schmaltz, XMAS DELIGHTS is packed with more than a few of my very favorite things. Yes, Virginia, there is a brilliant Santa comp. 

"Well, I for one have never came across a listenable one that wasn't made by myself. As everyone else genuinely interested in music I generally despise this "genre", but every year I make some sort of Christmas-comp. And for a short period in December I really love spinning the 3-4 hour worth of  standout songs I've discovered throughout the years. So I figured I might as well collect and share about 2x45 minute long set for the holidays at my favorite place in blogland too. First half (Santa) is primarely lighthearted secular joy for your Christmas parties or whatever. And the second half (Jesus) a little more contemplative filled with seasonal folksongs, sentimental oldies and heartfelt religious tunes. I know it won't be your favorite album ever, but I'm only aiming for it to become you favorite Christmas compilation. So with this Moahaha wishes you all a Merry Christmas!"

Les Griots (w/ Serge Franklin) -- Ouagadougou, Afrique: Exotissimo Vol. 8 (Pathé Marconi / EMI, 1975)"




On repeat. This Serge Franklin  seems to be something of a grandmaster OG in the ethnographic forgery game. 'Exotissimo' is right, no? Really though, this is a stunning record. Haven't found much, however, by way of biography for Les Griots, but, it'd be reasonable to assume that the group would've hailed originally from Burkina Faso. The dimensions of the rhythms & sounds here are truly exquisite. Heavy grooves. And, these mid 70's sessions, recorded in Paris, are subtlely realized; deep, resonant and spare. An hour or so of poking around the web has me reasonably convinced me that Loulendo is most likely Jean Loulendo. That's mostly it, although he does seems to show up as in author in worldcat. I've had even less luck with Dolo, who's also credited with an arrangement on this album. Anyone else know more? Enjoy.

Biet-Het Vol 1 : A Cheesy Trip Through the Dutch-Belgian Sixties Youth Provo and...Yes..Eating Culture! (Distortions, 1998)"




"Who ever listens through these thirty songs objectively will despair and ask: "What on earth went wrong with Dutch popular music after these unprecedented peak years?" (And let's not forget the Belgian contributions to this compilation!) The pure, raw productions, the textual and musical originality and the amazing emotional charge of these records create a gap with contemporary Dutch music which, in meters, surpasses the boundaries of the universe easily. these are the young and passionate singing their hearts out! This CD contains the essence of all of Dutch society of the sixties. Who ever listens...will personally experience the sixties retroactively." (Drs J. Pate, from the liner notes)

Hyperbole aside, this out of print CD comp of rocking Dutch-Belgian garage psych rave-ups is chock full of fuzzy freakbeat, goofy one-offs, a few sweet vegetables, and one righteous cover of the Kinks' Don't You Fret. It rules. Let's just say its "Solid as a Rock!" Enjoy...

David Hykes - The Harmonic Choir : Hearing Solar Winds (1983 - Ocora 558 607)"





'The Harmonic Choir was formed by David Hykes in 1975. An accomplished experimental filmmaker witha deep interest in traditional and sacred music, Hykes had already acquired broad familiarity with the music of West and Central Asia when he first heard the Hoomi singing (literally "throat singing") indigenous to western Mongolia, and the overtone chanting of Tantric Tibetan Buddhism. 

In the Hoomi tradition, singers produce fundamental tone in the bass or baritone range, and then by extremely precise modulation of the of the abdominal muscles, chest, and vocal apparatus - larynx, tongue, jaws, cheeks, and lips - project simultaneously a higher tone or tones, related in frequency to the fundamental tone by whole number ratios. These higher frequencies are called "overtones" or "harmonics". In producing harmonics, the voice acts like a kind of sonic prism, "refracting" sound along a frequency spectrum which extends upward from the fundamental tone.

...For David Hykes, the significance of the harmonic series as both a source and an aesthetic standard for musical composition lies in its organic lawfulness and proportion. His work begins at the point where a singer can articulate at will various harmonics in the series. From there, it moves towards a living research into the unexplored realms of sound made accessible by harmonic singing, where acoustical order can become truly iconic to what is at once a more universal world of number.

In many cultures, it has traditionally been the role of music to express a sense of the order of the universe - an order which man can aspire to understand and to look for in himself. As a "traditional" music of present-day culture, perhaps the singing of the Harmonic Choir can fulfill the same pupose.' (Theodore Levin, album notes)

'This recording was made in l'Abbaye du thoronet, a 12th-century Cistercian monastary in Provence, where I had previously brought the Choir in 1978. The simple harmonic geometry of the Abbey seemed perfectly proportioned to magnify the Choir's music and let it resonate within its sacred space. Working there was an incredible challenge: our sensations, our breathing, and even our thoughts and emotions became intensely amplified. We recorded most of the nights of August 6 and 7, and i wish to express my deepest thanks to Pierre Toureille and Michel Lepage and his crew for their sensitivity and earnestness in seeking with us the ideal results.' (David Hykes, album notes)


 Hermetic harmonics in choral a cappella. Recommended material for an hypnotic late night zone-out, drone-out. The new age is upon us. 2012, Quetzalcoatl, Oneohtrix Point Never, and so on. 

The Harmonic Choir have been a recent discovery for me. Turns out Hykes had scored Baraka and Meetings With Remarkable Men, both of which I'd enjoyed years ago, but had never looked too deeply into their soundtracks. It looks like Rootblog, among others, have upped some other prime offerings from Hykes & The Harmonic Choir. Now here I am, casting a fresh rip of this LP out into these interweb's Solar Winds. And while it had long been out of print, it has since come to my attention that a remastered version of Solar Winds is now available for purchase from the likes of CDBaby. And so, in the interest of promotion & courtesy (and of keeping this blog), the links below will be available here at GC for only the next two weeks. Enjoy.

David Hykes - The Harmonic Choir : Hearing Solar Winds (1983 - Ocora 558 607)"





'The Harmonic Choir was formed by David Hykes in 1975. An accomplished experimental filmmaker witha deep interest in traditional and sacred music, Hykes had already acquired broad familiarity with the music of West and Central Asia when he first heard the Hoomi singing (literally "throat singing") indigenous to western Mongolia, and the overtone chanting of Tantric Tibetan Buddhism. 

In the Hoomi tradition, singers produce fundamental tone in the bass or baritone range, and then by extremely precise modulation of the of the abdominal muscles, chest, and vocal apparatus - larynx, tongue, jaws, cheeks, and lips - project simultaneously a higher tone or tones, related in frequency to the fundamental tone by whole number ratios. These higher frequencies are called "overtones" or "harmonics". In producing harmonics, the voice acts like a kind of sonic prism, "refracting" sound along a frequency spectrum which extends upward from the fundamental tone.

...For David Hykes, the significance of the harmonic series as both a source and an aesthetic standard for musical composition lies in its organic lawfulness and proportion. His work begins at the point where a singer can articulate at will various harmonics in the series. From there, it moves towards a living research into the unexplored realms of sound made accessible by harmonic singing, where acoustical order can become truly iconic to what is at once a more universal world of number.

In many cultures, it has traditionally been the role of music to express a sense of the order of the universe - an order which man can aspire to understand and to look for in himself. As a "traditional" music of present-day culture, perhaps the singing of the Harmonic Choir can fulfill the same pupose.' (Theodore Levin, album notes)

'This recording was made in l'Abbaye du thoronet, a 12th-century Cistercian monastary in Provence, where I had previously brought the Choir in 1978. The simple harmonic geometry of the Abbey seemed perfectly proportioned to magnify the Choir's music and let it resonate within its sacred space. Working there was an incredible challenge: our sensations, our breathing, and even our thoughts and emotions became intensely amplified. We recorded most of the nights of August 6 and 7, and i wish to express my deepest thanks to Pierre Toureille and Michel Lepage and his crew for their sensitivity and earnestness in seeking with us the ideal results.'

Super Djata de Bamako -- Vol. 2 (1983 -- Musique Mondial, MAD 004) *Flac"



"Zani Diabaté, prominent guitar player in the Super Djata Band, one of the most popular bands from Bamako during the 1980s, joined the Ballet National in 1963, where he sang, danced and played guitar, kora, balafon and percussion. In his spare time, he would play in Harmonica Jazz, where he played harmonica, and later he formed the Ganoua Band with Daouda Sangaré on kamalen n'goni and on vocals, and with Maré Sanogo on djembé. In the early 1970s, the Ganoua Band was appointed the third National Orchestra of Mali (Formation C). When they were left without work, Zani and his fellow band members decided to switch to a private band which they named (Super) Djata Band. It was in 1974 that they started recording for Radio Mali.

The sound of Super Djata, based on the, compared to the mellow malinke sound of for instance the Rail Band, hard hitting Bambara rhythms and melodies, is highly coloured by the outstanding guitar playing by Zani Diabaté." (Musiques-Afrique)



Friends, you can still grab the (better sounding?) mp3 version of Super Djata's Vol. 2 at the invaluable World Service music blog. And, be sure to show some love over at WS, too...Not only for showing extraordinary taste and generosity in having shared our interweb's first best rip of Vol. 2 (and more!), but also for WRLDSERV's  own heartfelt personal insights and recollections about the life & career of Zani Diabaté & co.

Huge thanks to  DJ Cuica for lending out this platter that matters.  Djata truly brought this afternoon to life back here at the homestead. Heavenly sounds.

Baden Powell- Baden : O Som de Baden Powell *1968 (Elenco, ME-48)"




Baden. This handsomely designed Brazilian pressing, originally released by Elenco in 1968, serves up a distinctive handful of subtly produced bossa and samba outtakes that were recorded at Powell’s 1966 Tristeza on Guitar sessions. Lovely stuff. When compared, the overall vibe on Baden is clearly the more reflective of the two.

(V/A) Let's Get Loose : Folk And Popular Blues Styles From The Beginnings To The Early 1940s (New World, 1978)"



"[In the early 20th] century, professional traveling entertainers in the South, many of them women, began to incorporate blues into their stage acts. In 1912 the first blues sheet music appeared, and very shortly the blues moved into the mainstream of white popular music as well as southern white folk music. In 1920 the first blues record by a black vocalist appeared, initiating a flood of thousands of commercial recordings that continues today. These popularizing trends took place in a historical context of increasing migration of rural southern blacks to the northern urban centers. Blues have continued to flourish in the ghettos, mainly among people with strong and recent ties to the South. Hastened by the hit and star system of the record industry, a series of new performance styles grew up, containing elements that reminded the listener of the South but also reflecting the increasing sophistication and complexity of city life. Styles emanating from the cities had an influence on southern rural blues singers through records and through the recording artists' personal appearances, while at the same time the urban blues scene was nourished by a steady stream of new performers arriving from "down home." The blues on this album, all from commercial recordings, illustrate the major styles in which blues were performed from the turn of the century to the outbreak of World War Il. Side One contains styles already in existence at the advent of recording, including examples of early white folkand popular-blues styles. Side Two presents styles that developed or came into prominence largely after or as a result of commercial recording." (album notes excerpt)

Escola De Samba Da Cidade ‎– Batucada Nº 3 : The Exciting Rhythm Of The Wild Brazilian Carnival (Philips, 1971)"


"This album was conceived and produced by Armando Pittigliani, one of the biggest music producers in Brazil. He produced the first albums of bossa nova by [artists like] Carlos Lyra, Nara Leão, Os Cariocas and Tamba Trio, was also producer of Baden Powell, Jair Rodrigues, CY Quartet, Jackson do Pandeiro, Agnaldo Timothy, Elis Regina, among many others. [He] played an important role in song festivals, as a juror, collaborator and producer. It was he who had the bright idea to record the likely winning songs before the end of the festival. So, when the winner was announced, the recording was ready. The next day, stores had the disc with the winning songs on the shelves....

This album, recorded in 1971, aims to present some typical Brazilian rhythms, especially those related to samba. The album is entirely instrumental, and the rhythms are shown in a very didactic [way]" (Acervo Origens)





A boss 70s brazilian LP of crisply recorded (studio) batucada. Breaks all day for you beat-diggers out there. Many thanks to my compadre, Bill, who was kind enough to rip this outstanding record for GC. Enjoy!

Massive Re-Ups #3 (Lots of requests)"



Spent most of today getting busy with this massive batch of re-ups. Lots of requests honored down below. Some of these date way, way back to the very first months of GC -- Well before I had a scanner, or was even ripping things in 320, much less lossless. Old-School jams and whatnot.

Paz!
