The Stark Reality – Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop (DOLP)
Die Geschichte von The Stark Reality's Discovers The Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop beginnt im Boston der späten 1960er Jahre, mit einer wilden Jazzband aus Boston, die sowohl psychedelisch als auch modal, funky und swingend war einen Vertrag mit Ahmad Jamals aufstrebendem Label AJP erhält, nachdem der legendäre Jazzpianist ihre Demo-Aufnahmen hörte. Sie waren von Hoagy Carmichaels Sohn, dem großen amerikanischen Songschreiber Hoagy Bix Carmichael, beauftragt worden Kinderlieder des älteren Carmichael für eine Mr. Rogers-Show zu interpretieren, die der jüngere Carmichael Carmichael für den lokalen PBS-Sender WGBH produzierte. Das Quartett - Monty Stark am Vibraphon, Phil Morrison am Bass, Vinnie Johnson am Schlagzeug und ein sehr junger John Abercrombie an der Fuzz-Gitarre - nahm ein Album auf, das bei seiner ersten Veröffentlichung floppte und später zu einem der eines der - wie das Mojo Magazine anmerkte - "wertvollsten 'Funk'-Artefakte aller Zeiten... ein Projekt, das sich mit Hendrix-geschwängerte Gitarren, starkes Vibraphon und Bitches Brew-Rhythmen..." Zum RSD Black Friday präsentiert Now-Again Records, das die Musik von The Stark Reality seit 2002 im Druck hält, die die endgültige Wiederveröffentlichung von The Stark Reality's Discovers The Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop.

VA – Welcome To Zamrock! - Vol.2 (DOLP)
Repressed! How Zambia’s Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution. 1972-1977By the mid-1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times. Though thecountry’s first president Kenneth Kaunda had thrown off the yoke of British colonialism, the new federation found itselfunder his self-imposed, autocratic rule. Conflict loomed on all sides of this landlocked nation. Kaunda protected Zambiafrom war, but his country descended into isolation and poverty.This is the environment in which the ’70s rock revolution that has come to be known as Zamrock flourished. Fuzz guitarswere commonplace, as were driving rhythms as influenced by James Brown’s funk as Jimi Hendrix’s rock predominated.Musical themes, mainly sung in the country’s constitutional language, English, were often bleak.In present day Zambia, Zamrock markers were few. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers that remainedin the country survived through the late ’90s. AIDS decimated this country, and uncontrollable inflation forced the Zambianrockers that could afford to flee into something resembling exile. This was not a likely scene to survive - but it did. WelcomeTo Zamrock!, presented in two volumes, is an overview of its most beloved ensembles, and a trace of its arc from itsascension, to its fall, to its resurgence.

VA – Wake Up You! The Rise And Fall of Nigerian Rock 1972-1977 Vol. 1 (DOLP)
Repress / The Western world was in the throes of peace, love and flower power as Nigeria descended into Civil War in 1967. The rock scene that developed during the following three years of bloodshed and destruction would come to heal the country, propagate the world-wide ideal of the Modern Nigerian, and propel Fela Kuti to stardom after the conflict ended in 1970. Wake Up You! tells the story of this time, pays homage to these now-forgotten musicians and their struggle, and brings to light the funk and psychedelic fury they created as they wrested free of the ravages of the late 1960s and created thrilling, original Nigerian rock music throughout the 1970s.

Johnny! – Karl Hector Presents: Johnny! (LP)
Back in stock! Ghanaian Afro-Rock From Producer/Composer JJ Whitefield, Inspired By His Karl Hector & The Malcouns And Whitefield Brothers Projects JJ Whitefield, who in the early ‘90s revived the gritty, analogue Funk sounds of the ‘60s and ‘70s with his Poets Of Rhythm, has been working with Now-Again Records for over decade, releasing a flock of acclaimed projects with Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Whitefield Brothers, Rodinia and the Original Raw Soul anthology. He first started exploring African rhythms with the Whitefield Brothers in the late ‘90s, continuing in the ‘00s with Karl Hector & The Malcouns. He’s been instrumental in launching Ghanaian Afro Beat/Funk legend Ebo Taylor´s international career, decades after the maestro recorded the landmark albums that have inspired thousands. Whitefield recorded two new studio albums with Taylor and toured in his band between 2009 and 2013, where he met Taylor’s son Henry and percussionist/Singer Eric Owusu. The trio now front the Johnny! band and find inspiration not only in Ghana’s hypnotic grooves, but also the full frontal fuzz guitar assault heard on the legion of 70s Zambian Zamrock albums reissued by Now-Again. Indeed, Whitefield credits his tours with Zamrock godfathers Rikki Ililonga and WITCH’s Jagari Chanda as instrumental in creating the Johnny’s sonic backdrop. The band is rounded out by Turkish drummer Bernd Oezsevim (Woima Collective, Rodinia) and Indonesian bassist/multi instrumentalist Tomi Simatupang (Whitefield Brothers). This is what was oft-called “Afro Rock” at the core, with the possibilities to stretch out into swinging highlife, sweet soul or psychedelia . The results, point at a new direction for the music inspired by the Great Continent. One that takes a direction once mocked as derivative and asserts its importance on the globe’s current musical stage.

The Daktaris – Soul Explosion (LP)
Includes MP3 Download Card 1998 veröffentlichte Desco Records - ein Vorläufer von Daptone & Soul Fire - The Daktaris' Soul Explosion, angeblich als Neuauflage einer ausgegrabenen nigerianischen LP aus den 70er Jahren. Obwohl es heute allgemein bekannt ist, dass die Geschichte ein wenig scherzhaft war, kann die Bedeutung der Platte als wegweisender Teil der Afrobeat- und Afro-Funk-Renaissance der letzten zwei Jahrzehnte nicht geleugnet werden. Die Wurzeln der Budos Band, Antibalas und unzähliger anderer lassen sich auf diese rätselhafte Afro-Funk-Release zurückführen. Jetzt, zwei Jahrzehnte später, hat Daptone das Album von den Originalbändern remastert, einschließlich eines Bonustracks, der bisher nur auf einer 45er erhältlich war, und mit umfangreichen, völlig neuen Liner Notes von Bosco Mann, die die bizarre wahre Geschichte hinter den Daktaris-Sessions erzählen.

VA – ¡Naino, Naino! Spanish Gipsy Soul Funk Disco 1971/1978 (LP)
Limited Edition 500 CopiesFlamenco rumba fusion which in the hands of intrepid producers becomes Catalan rumba under the influence of sounds coming from Cuba and Puerto Rico in the early 1960s, rumba pop under the umbrella of the British Invasion and American pop of the late 1960s, and disco rumba with the arrival funk and disco from the USA in the mid-1970s. Everything happens thanks to a flourishing record industry located mainly in Barcelona with labels such as Belter, Discophon, or Vergara. After the death of the fascist, sanguinary dictator Paquito Franco in November 1975, the international record industry establishes in Madrid through major labels CBS, RCA, and a new fusion led by producer Jose Luis de Carlos and labeled as gipsy rock, caño roto or, in the flamenco field, especially in couplets, flamenco pop. As Oriol Farràs pointed in the previous volume (ADC 003LP, 2108), rumba moved from tablaos to discotheques, understanding the concept of discotheque at that time with a slightly different meaning and less conditioned style-wise. The selection on offer here complements volume one. Starting with an A side packed with floor fillers, with Peret's "Chavi" as the top example of gypsy funk fusion under production of Josep María Bardagí and Josep "Rabbit Rumba" Cunill, and four examples of the answer to that sound as produced by Jose Luis de Carlos, showing the four cardinal points of this fusion success: Las Grecas, Los Chorbos, El Luis, and Chango. De Carlos transforms the sound of Madrid's flamenco artists spicing it with soul, rock, glam, dub, funk, disco, and gospel. These five opening tunes alone could feed a whole

VA– Cuba: Music And Revolution (Culture Clash In Havana Cuba: Experiments In Latin Music 1975-85 Vol. 1) 3 x Vinyl (DOLP)
  Cuba: Music and Revolution: Culture Clash in Havana: Experiments in Latin Music 1975-85 Vol. 1 is a new album compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) that explores the many new styles that emerged in Cuba in the 1970s as Jazz, Funk, Brazilian Tropicalia and even Disco mixed together with Latin and Salsa on the island as Cuban artists experimented with new musical forms created in the unique socialist state. The music on this album features legendary Cuban groups such as Irakere, Los Van Van and Pablo Milanés as well as a host of lesser known artists such as the radical Grupo De Experimentación, Juan Pablo Torres and Algo Nuevo, Grupo Monumental and Orquesta Ritmo Oriental, groups whose names remain largely unknown outside of Cuba owing to the now 60-year old US trade embargo which remains in place today and which prevents trade with Cuba - and thus most Cuban records were only ever available in Cuba or in ex-Soviet Union states. The music on this album reflects the most cutting-edge of Cuban groups that were recording in Cuba in the 1970s and 1980s - who were all searching for a new Cuban identity and new musical forms that reflected both the Afro-Cuban cultural heritage of a nation that gave birth to Latin music - and its new position as a socialist state. Most of the music featured on this album has never been heard outside of Cuba. Cuba: Music and Revolution is the third book that Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker have collaborated on together and follows on from their two earlier critically acclaimed books, Freedom, Rhythm and Sound (Revolutionary Jazz Music in the 1960s and 1970s) and Bossa Nova and the Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s, both of which also had related album releases on Soul Jazz Records.

Scone Cash Players – Brooklyn To Brooklin (LP)
  Daptone Records is proud to present Brooklyn to Brooklin, the Scone Cash Players inaugural release on Daptone Records. Longtime Daptone Hammond ace, Adam Scone was seduced when his traveling performances brought him from Brooklyn, New York to Brooklin, Brasil, where he found a trove of new love and music.

The Hammond then gives way to a dreamy, funky groove that's perfectly seasoned with ethereal background vocals that will transport you to a place where summer is on repeat. "Brooklyn to Brooklin” brings you deep into a fever-dream of tropical rhythms and seductive flourishes of psychedelia, sure to delight dancers and dreamers alike.

Thee Sacred Souls – Thee Sacred Souls (LP)
Limited Icy Blue Color VinylInvludes Mp3 Download Card For Thee Sacred Souls, the first time is often the charm. The band’s first club dates led to a record deal with the revered Daptone label; their first singles racked up more than ten million streams in a year and garnered attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and their first fans included the likes of Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, Princess Nokia, and Timbaland. Now, the breakout San Diego trio is ready to deliver yet another landmark first with the release of their self-titled debut on Daptone Records. “Every step of the way has just been so organic,” says drummer Alex Garcia. “Things just seem to happen naturally when the three of us get together.”Indeed, there’s something inevitable about the sound of Thee Sacred Souls, as if Garcia and his bandmates—bassist Sal Samano and singer Josh Lane—have been playing together for a lifetime already. Produced by Bosco Mann (aka Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth), Thee Sacred Souls is a warm and textured record, mixing the easygoing grace of sweet ’60s soul with the grit and groove of early ’70s R&B, and the performances are utterly intoxicating, with Lane’s weightless vocals anchored by the rhythm section’s deep pocket and infectious chemistry. Hints of Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis, and even Panama soul turn up here, and while it’s tempting to toss around labels like “retro” with a deliberately analog collection like this, there’s also something distinctly modern about the band that defies easy categorization, a rawness and a sincerity that transcends time and place.

Ikebe Shakedown – Ikebe Shakedown (LP)
Repress! Originally released in 2011 with a limited pressing and repressed once a few years later in 2016. “Right now in cities across the globe, there are plenty of great Afrobeat revivalist bands aping the sound and groove of Fela Kuti’s legendary sound. Yet, surprisingly few of the new groups have strayed from an orthodox interpretation of the genre or done much real innovation. ..Ikebe Shakedown is here to change that. The band takes signature Afrobeat elements—big unison horns, slinky bass lines, tight little guitar licks—and blends them with tasty grooves culled from '70s-style horn-driven funk”. -Marlon Bishop, WNYCIkebe Shakedown, the self-titled album and Ubiquity Records debut from the Brooklyn-based band, plays with elements of Cinematic Soul, Afro-funk, Deep Disco, and Boogaloo in all the right ways. Pushing their globally-informed sound and eclectic approach to tune-writing into new territory, “Self-titling the album is a way to introduce the audience to the many facets of the band -- to provide a more complete understanding of what we do,” bassist Vince Chiarito says. “Our sound has grown to incorporate our influences without overtly representing any one in particular. It just sounds like us," he adds.

L.A. Carnival – Would Like To Pose A Question (DOLP)
Repressed , please note price increase! Would Like To Pose A Question is one of the first previously-unreleased funk and soul albums issued by Now-Again, and it still sounds amazing today. Well, it would have to: it's the brainchild of bandleader/drummer/singer/songwriter Lester Abrams (the L.A. in L.A. Carnival). Abrams helped create hit singles like "Minute by Minute" and “What A Fool Believes” for the Doobie Brothers and played with artists such as B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Peabo Bryson, Manfred Mann, Quincy Jones and many more. Before all that - in early 70s while still in Omaha - he brought a multi-racial band into the Pacific Avenue studio to cut an album's worth of material. Only one single - "Color" b/w "Blink Man" - was ever issued, and this album sat on master tapes in Abrams' closet. That is until Now-Again’s Eothen Alapatt intervened in the early 2000s and Would You Like To Pose A Question was at last given a proper full length release.
