There's a good piece in Portuguese about it here, which mentions "musical disagreements" Hermeto's arguments with the studio engineers, why he isn´t on the cover and how none of them got paid.
I endorse Krishinanda. Jakartajive played me a bit about a year ago so the Mr Bongo issue was timely.
Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.
Ghost Box reissued 'The Soundcarriers - Entropicalia' which I somehow missed despite being on various interrelated mailing lists. Beats paying silly discogs and ebay prices for one.
Anyone know why there's not so far been a vinyl reissue of The Shape of The Rain album on RCA Neon? Originals usually go for silly money, so I'm surprised Akarma or somebody haven't managed to get a reissue out?
A great LP, one of my finds of 2016.
Still can't find it dammit!
Here's an old thread about the band reconvening in 2010 .... but I don't think this is what I'm remembering.
Perhaps I imagined it all.
Hmm.. someone posted a 2012 mix of the LP on you tube, remix or re-recording?:
... but still no vinyl reissue.
Surprised nobody has mentioned Tomorrows People - Open Soul. Think it come out a few weeks ago.
The Repertoire CD is legit but as the LP was never released in Germany, I wonder if it's a remaster or a vinyl transcription?
There's a new CD on Big Pink of Korea.
Google turns up nothing but the band has a facebook page, and maybe I read about the remastering there...
Midori Takada "Through The Looking Glass" is being reissued this month:
"Palto Flats & WRWTFWW Records are ecstatic to announce the highly-anticipated reissue of Japanese percussionist Midori Takada's sought after and timeless ambient / minimal album "Through The Looking Glass", originally released in 1983 by RCA Japan.
Considered a Holy Grail of Japanese music by many, "Through The Looking Glass" is Midori Takada’s first solo endeavor, a captivating four-song suite capturing her deep quests into traditional African and Asian percussive language and exploring contemplative ambient sounds with an admirably precise use of marimba. The result is alternatively ethereal and vibrant, always precise and mesmerizing, and makes for an atmospheric masterpiece and an unparalleled sonic and spiritual experience. "
I can't see that anyone has mentioned the Mr Bongo reissue of "Wahoo" by Eero Koivistoinen. 3-4 tracks of seriously funky jazz. Seriously funky.
Possibly they aren't.
I see that the copy that I didn't get on Dusty Groove was on Svart. A brief follow up suggested Mr Bongo - but nothing to suggest availability.
Worth pursuing in earnest if that is your thing.
No one else got onto these? I ordered mine from Honest Jons last week
Superfly reissue of Andrew Wartts and The Gospel Storytellers – There Is A God Somewhere
and Shamek Farrah – First Impressions
Its nice that both these were reissued because the original pressings each fetch a serious amount of money.
Yes! Got the Farrah last week, excellent. Honest Jon's one of the few places still selling it by the looks of it.
YouTube clips of Lloyd Mcneil's " Washington Suite" are tempting me.
