Ordered a couple vinyls from Amazon and I had a Gift Card. Yes!!!!!


Quote :
Orlando Julius has been a well known name on the West African music scene all through the 1960s and 70s. His early work was recorded in the Philips studios under the strict supervision of their house producers who were putting an emphasis on a pleasant and swinging sound that was jugging along in a pleasant way, bridging big band highlife music with American soul.

In 1972 and 1973, Orlando Julius and his band The Afrosounders visited the legendary ARC Lagos studio of Ginger Baker and what OJ and the gang put to tape there was an entirely different beast: They recorded and album packed with unadulterated, funky Afrobeat of the heaviest caliber.

For the first time, Orlando and the his band were able to really let loose and showcase their full power with an unfiltered impact. They laid down six epic tracks that from a Funk or Afrobeat perspective definitely count as Orlando's strongest work but it seemed that Philips were not too happy with this result. They completely botched the distribution of this record and while Orlando's earlier and later work has all been re-issued over the past years, sometimes multiple times and from various international labels, this, his best record has remained under the radar and virtually unknown to the worldwide community of African music lovers. This was until I was sitting in my friend Damian Iwuagwu's house in Lagos back in January of 2010, drinking a cold Star beer and enjoying the evening when he casually handed me this LP and asked "what about this one, I got this the other day and I don't think I've ever seen it before".

Like most stories involving aliens this
one seems, well, made up. But it really
happened. For a few years in the late 60's
to early 70's worlds collided and aliens
walked among us.

And made music.

Psycho African Beat is the complete
recorded output of this amazing group and
their unprecedented music that combined
elements of American soul, funk, garage rock
and psych with African rhythms and melodies.

This magical moment lasted for 3 short years
producing only 3 releases: 1 - 4 song EP +
2 - 7”s. Today, these 3 original releases are
the most sought after and most elusive
African funk records.

Cool that you're getting into that stuff.

I'm on a Brazilian bossa kick at the moment, hits me once every few years.

Just the first one. It's a really good "rock" album, if you know what I mean. There is cover of Trapeze's "Medusa" on it, if that helps.

is that "At War With Satan"?

That was the first Venom album I got, in hindsight probably not the best first choice. Though it does bring back some foggy drug-induced teenage memories.

That's it. I only took a picture with the "break away" case open so you guys got what was special about the series. It was my first Venom album too, and no probably not the best first choice, but I still dig it.

I don't think I've heard hardly any of these Yes albums you guys talk about.

There are very few YES albums that I don't like, I think most of them are worth investigating.

The next one I plan on getting is Relayer, and then Tales From Topographic Oceans.
And Shawn's right, just about every Yes album is good at least to some extent. I haven't heard anything from the 90's and up though.

"Tales" is generally considered their "magnum opus" and is quite a listen. Relayer is the first album with Patrick Moraz on keyboards (he went to the Moody Blues later on) and the arrangements are INSANE!

Once I get those, I'll have all the "classic" Yes albums. I would just need Going for the One to round out the 70's collection of Yes. Then I would probably get 90215 after all of those.

The only thing I don't like about Tormato is the godawful keyboard sound. If the keyboards had that same tone that they had on Fragile or Close to the Edge, this album would be much more enjoyable.

I forget what new keyboard he was using on that album. It really kills "Don't Kill The Whale".... though I still like it!
