    Summer Records Anthology (1974-1988)

    LITA 029

    For many locals and traveling Jamaican musicians, Jerry Brown’s Malton, Ontario-based Summer Sound Studios – known as Canada’s answer to Lee Perry’s Black Ark – was a creative haven that tapped deep into the depths of universal reggae consciousness. Located just outside of Toronto, the label fired their first shot in 1974 with Johnnie Osborne’s “Sun Rise” backed with the heavenly bounce of “Love Makes The World Go Round” (co-produced by Brown’s one-time collaborator and Half Moon Records founder, Oswald Creary). Throughout most of the seventies, Canadian-produced reggae music was a commercial non-entity, bar a thriving underground scene of ex-pats who simply did what came naturally to them in small studios and private dances.

  • Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Vol. 2

    Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Vol. 2

    LITA 052 / WAX 003

    Light In The Attic & Waxing Deep team up again for Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 2 – taking up where the first volume left off with another a fully-licensed compilation of Cuban funk, jazz, psych, son, and soul from the last four decades. Highlights include the deep funk of Safari Salvaje by Los Rápidos, a mesmerising funk workout from an obscure band that in the 70s won the Cuban equivalent of American Idol; Al Sonar la Hora, a funk-rock classic from Los Barba who, despite being one of Cuba’s most popular bands ever, never recorded a single LP; and Vanguardia y Juventud by Sonopop, absurdly unlikely party music from teenaged members of the Communist Youth Militia.

    Beyond Istanbul: Underground Grooves Of Turkey Vol. 2

    US-0398

    DJ Ipek Ipekcioglu rounds up a second compilation of modern sounds from the urban Turkish community both in her home of Berlin, and her motherland, Turkey. The set ranges from melodramatic disco like the Wonderstar remix of Mira’s ‘Eve Dönmeliyim’ to hybrid Berlin/Turkish techno from DJ Ipek herself, next to gypsy folk from Osman Ismen Project and rocky hip-hop from Fairuz Derin Bulut & Cera.

    Available on CD & 2xLP

  • Dead & Gone Vol. 1: Funeral Marches / Trauermärsche

    V/A

    Dead & Gone Vol. 1: Funeral Marches / Trauermärsche

    US-0234

    Brilliantly compiled, these CD’s are more than just collections of songs about mortality. As a whole, they form a unified composition, a meditation on the way different cultures respond artistically to death, a statement on grieving and a declaration of superb musical taste. Like a deft free-form radio show, these CD’s follow Albert Ayler with Robert Wyatt with a funeral in a village in Ghana. Moody, atmospheric and moving, they segue Cassandra Wilson into the Geto Boys, and slowly march through dirges from Lou Reed, Billie Holiday, Lydia Mendoza, Tom Waits and. brass and vocal groups from Mexico, Albania and Serbia. It may not seem like joyous holiday fare, but it’s a perfect way to reflect on those less fortunate.

    Rembetika: Manges Passion Drugs Jail Desease Death / Songs of the Greek Underground 1925-1947

    US-0293

    Twenty years after the huge success of ‘Five Greeks in Hell’, Trikont’s first Rembetika compilation, comes a new CD of early, rare and uncensored recordings from the seedy underbelly of Greek culture, featuring such legendary singers of the old Rembetika style as Anestis Delias, Markos Vamvakaris, Jovan Tsaous, Jorgos Batis, Jorgos Katsaros, and many others.

    Rembetika is to Greece what Flamenco is to Spain, Fado to ortugal and Tango to Argentina. It originated during the late 19th century, becoming the folk music of the cities, sung by the social outcast, the criminal and the dispossessed, the so-called “rembetes” and “manges”, in the illegal hashish taverns of the urban underground. Hard gut-wrenching songs of passion, drugs, jail, disease and death. The blues of the Greek peninsular.

    Shteygers: New Klezmer Musik

    This is Klezmer music played by a current generation of musicians who don´t care about authenticity. Their innovative and experimental approach generates surprising results: definitely the future face of Klezmer.

    Black & White Hillbilly Music: Early Harmonica Recordings from the 1920s & 30s

    US-0226

    The “Old Southern Sound” was a mixture of several traditions and there were no strictly borders between the different styles. Black blues and white hillbilly musicians influenced each other and often shared a common repertoire. DeFord Bailey learned these tunes from his grandfather who called them “black hillbilly music”. The harmonica became a link between the races as the first mass produced musical instrument which was cheap enough for everyone to own. It was easy to play and you could carry it around in your pocket. The harmonica was not only popular with soloists who liked to imitate the sounds of trains and fox-chases with it, but was also widely used in many hillbilly stringbands to add a different flavour.

    Globalista: Import Export

    US-0304

    Popular modern genres such as Zouglou, Russian Ska Punk, Turkish and Chinese Pop or African Hip hop sell in the 100 thousands in their countries of origin, but do not make it to the record shops here. Often enough the only chance to get your hands on that sort of music is to go to one of the small exotically garish import/export shops. Globalista connects the European CD shelf with the tapes on sale in Abijan, St Petersburg, Peking, Beirut or Santiago de Chile and tries to take a look behind the scenes.

    These two albums feature the cream of modern gospel greats. Stupendous voices touched with the spirit, pulsating with throbbing passion and infused with sanctified possession and heartfelt testifying, backed by wailing electric guitars, pulsating organs and wild percussion. Dynamic infectious rhythms and slow ballads. Personal testimony and congregational call and response. Raw and emotional, this is religious ecstasy laid bare. Gospel at its very best.

    Konkani Songs: Music From Goa made in Bombay

    US-0395

    The ever fascinating Trikont imprint dives deep to bring up some real pearls on this compilation of Goan Konkani songs recorded between the 50’s – 70’s. Konkani music is indigenous to the West Coast of India, from the metropolis of Bombay to the paradisical region of Goa where much of the music originates. What makes Konkani songs so intriguing and worthy of further attention is the fusion of imported modes and instrumentation from Italian mandolins to Mexican trumpets, the sounds of the South Seas and Cuban Son mingling in an intoxicating polystyle brew of elegant beauty. These alien influences can be traced back to the era of colonial rule dating from the 16th century when Portuguese conquistadors imposed their power on the region, turning Goa into a Christian heartland with songs and music to match. This introduction of Western instruments lead to the imposition of Western harmonics and the incorporation of church music phrasing in the plaintive tone, in the use of the minor mode and in the very style of singing in two voices. Moving forward to the 1950’s and these rich musics were made available through recordings from the likes of Alfred Rose, Lorna, Robin Vaz, Mohammed Rafi, Jacinto Vaz, Annette Pinto and many more on Radio, TV and Cinema. We wholeheartedly recommend this as a fascinating insight to the lush and tropical fragrances of Goan light-classical music.

  • Texas Bohemia Vol. II:  Slow Music / The Texas Bohemian-Moravian-German Bands

    V/A

    Texas Bohemia Vol. II: Slow Music / The Texas Bohemian-Moravian-German Bands

    US-0222

    A horribly compelling grab-bag of 70s jukebox hits covered by South Texas Moravian, Bohemian and German bar bands. The Ellinger Combo sound stoned out of their brains droning out the anti-hippy anthem “Okie From Muskogee”. Joe Patek’s Orchestra are a righteously groovefree oompah band hilariously lurching their way through Hank Williams’s “Fraufein”. Even more of a nightmare, Adolf Hofner. And His Pearl Wranglers transform “I’ll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time” into a threat from a manic depressive. In some ways a wonderful collection, but if you identify with this music, just don’t move into my neighbourhood.

  • Teenage: Creation Of Youth

    V/A

    Teenage: Creation Of Youth

    US-0396

    Compiled by ’England’s Dreaming’ author Jon Savage, this compilation is intended as an aural accompaniment to Savage’s book of the same name, a book which traces the roots of the teenager. You see in the past, the teenager as we know it today simply didn’t exist, it’s a modern construct and one which was in many ways informed by the development of the music scene. This album and its large pamphlet of notes maps the progression of ‘young’ music from 1911 to 1946 and is a captivating listening experience, both from a historical standpoint and as an album in its own right. We move from the ragtimes of 1911 through the early jazz of Duke Ellington, the burnt out folk of Woody Guthrie and the drug-induced iconic pop of Judy Garland all the way up to the comparitively refined sounds of Frank Sinatra and The Mills Brothers. Whichever way you look at it this compilation stands as a hugely enjoyable music lesson, and a window into an era of growing up that we have barely any connection to.

  • Rare Schellacks: Bayern - Volksmusik (Bavaria - Traditional Music)

    Rare Schellacks: Bayern - Volksmusik (Bavaria - Traditional Music)

    US-0196

    Bavaria has always been the heartland of traditional music in Germany. On this record you will find the best Bavarian bands from the 78rpm-era playing their homegrown dances in a powerful style. Listen to the brass bands, string ensembles or zither solists and discover a musical world which is far removed from the oompah cliché.

  • Rare Schellacks: Wien - Volksmusik (Vienna - Traditional Music 1906-1932)

    Rare Schellacks: Wien - Volksmusik (Vienna - Traditional Music 1906-1932)

    US-0198

    Already by the 19th century Vienna, the capital of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, was a multiethnic melting pot. Bohemian polkas, gypsy melodies, Alpine and Balkan dances blended into a specific sound, which was performed in taverns on the outskirts of the metropolis. This music reflects all the melancholy and tragedy which defines the Vienna soul.

  • Rare Schellacks: Oberösterreich - Volksmusik ( Upper Austria - Traditional Music)

    V/A

    Rare Schellacks: Oberösterreich - Volksmusik ( Upper Austria - Traditional Music)

    US-0197

    This is the old earthy sound of rural Austria untouched by modern culture. Brass bands, small ensembles with violin and accordion, and the most striking yodelling contribute to a colourful picture of diversity.

  • Rare Schellacks: München - Volkssänger (Munich - Peoples Songsters)

    V/A

    Rare Schellacks: München - Volkssänger (Munich - Peoples Songsters)

    US-0199

    In the last century Munich became home of a new type of “folkmusic” which mingled many different types of traditional music into a fresh and vibrant urban sound. In hundreds of taverns, beer halls and restaurants folksingers would entertain a crowd with sometimes obscene songs, jokes and traditional melodies played on zither, guitar, harp and melodeon.

    V/A

    Creative Outlaws: U.K. Underground 1965 - 1971

    US-0383

    this compilation from German label Trikont celebrates the more rebellious strains of British music through the mid-sixties to early-seventies, incorporating the first waves of psychedelic music and various other experimental tendencies inherent to British music during the period.

    The inclusion of big names like Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, The Small Faces and The Yardbirds might seem odd under that premise, but it’s not entirely unreasonable to suppose that these artist’s were operating at the creative fringes when they first emerged on the scene – certainly, Nick Drake only really found broad recognition after his untimely death. The most tangibly ‘underground’ music here though, comes from the likes of the Delia Derbyshire/Brian Hodgson project White Noise (whose always flabbergasting ‘Love Without Sound’ is included), John’s Children, Ansley Dunbar’s Retaliation, Lol Coxhill (covering I Am The Walrus’), Deviants, Liverpudlian beat poet Adrien Henri (whose ironic call for Batman to help out in the Vietnam war sort of anticipates Alan Moore’s Watchmen) and prog-folkers Comus.

    Pop A La Catalana: Jazzy, Bossa & Groovy Sounds From Catalunya (1963-1971)

    Rare groove hides itself everywhere. Pop a la Catalana and its incredible selection crafted by Òscar Dalmau (DJ Phil Musical) invites you to plunge into a hot bed of sixties Catalan music, ripe with fabulous and curious record productions embracing a whole spectrum of very different styles. Soul, beat, bossa, jazz, Latin funk and pop sweat it out to the rhythm of this vibrant scene, made up of mysterious mod combos, magnificent crooners, bewitching jazz divas, queens of Iberic variety music and young pop lolitas.

    I Smell A Rat: Early Black Rock'n Roll Vol. 2 (1949-1959)

    US0-412

    After the overwhelming success of ‘Roll Your Moneymaker’ here is Volume 2 of ’Early Black Rock ’n Rolll 1949-1959. Long before Elvis rolled his pelvis, the Rolling Stones co-opted the Mississippi Blues and legions of white bands made their electrified guitars roar, black Blues, Gospel and Jazz artists had laid the cornerstone for the musical revolution, that would profoundly shatter the western world: Rock ’n Roll.

    Head Over High Heels: Strong & Female 1927-1959

    US-0401

    Screwball comedies heralded a new area of emancipation in the 1930s: strong, sexy, funny, beautiful, adventurous women entered the stage – uniting glamor and emancipation. The songs on this CD reflect that spirit: famous Hollywood legends and extraordinary singers from 1927-1959.

    Murder: Songs From The Dark Side Of The Soul

    US-0399

    Ever since the days of Cain and Abel, many a fine murder story has gripped people’s imagination. Jealousy is not the only root cause of man’s murderous impulse. Greed, lust, guilt, power – any one of these, it seems, is sufficient to justify taking a human life. Every day we read of brutal murders being committed. These stories were ripped from newspaper headlines and recast into verse and recorded, often within weeks of the actual event. They became part of the repertoire of hillbilly bands, blues guitarist, jugbands, r&b and tin pan alley entertainers, bluegrass artists and calypso singers.

  • Django’s Spirit: A Tribute To Django Reinhardt

    Django’s Spirit: A Tribute To Django Reinhardt

    US-0405

    A Tribute To Django Reinhadt is a cleverly conceptualized collection to mark the centenary of the legendary gypsy guitarist’s birth. Compiled by Suzie Reinhardt (musician, journalist, granddaughter?), she’s to be commended for taking a less obvious approach than might have been expected. This CD collection shows how many very different musicians Django has influenced.

    Les Gants Blancs Du Diable O.S.T.

    VAD012

    Within the oh so elusive club of the cult soundtrack, there exists one rare record which provokes a deep fascination and evokes a unique charm for those having heard of it, or those lucky enough to have listened to it (but an exclusive few). A veritable Holy Grail, relentlessly pursued by many, each hoping, one day, to own a copy of this unique and unrivalled work.

    Les Gants Blancs du Diable simply isn’t like other records. Its preciousness comes, first of all, from the fact that it was never re-edited (neither on CD nor vinyl), before Vadim Music’s release, and that the rare copies in circulation suffered from a slight sound degradation, the result of a fault at the time of pressing.

    Volume 6 includes favorites like the Golden Gate Quartet’s ‘Stalin’ Wasn’t Stallin’, the Southern Sons Quartet’s ‘Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition’ and some heartfelt tracks by Leadbelly and the extraordinary Rev. J.M. Gates.

    Gospel Funk

    SSR-LP-271

    Gospel Funk may sound like an oxymoron to some, however, in the late 60s and throughout the 70s, many Gospel artists began moving their sound in a funkier direction. When you think about it, it’s really not that hard to imagine. Most of us know that soul music is deeply rooted in gospel. Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and even James Brown all hail from the world of gospel music. Is it really unimaginable that the gospel community would latch onto the progression of soul music that took place in the secular market?
    This collection of Gospel Funk is raw, gritty, and packed full of breaks. The compositions are tastefully simple, the production is organic, and the music is undeniably funky.

  • Soviet Funk Vol. 1

    V/A

    Soviet Funk Vol. 1

    SSR-LP-268

    During the 1960s and 1970s funk music spread throughout the planet. The funny thing is most Americans didn’t even realize this until the 90s or later. Over the past couple decades, slowly but surely more and more rare funk gems have been unearthed from all corners of globe; Africa, China, Latin America, and now Russia.

    This collection of SOVIET FUNK was all recorded by Pavel Sysoyev in Abakan, the capital city of Khakassia between 1971 and 1976. Sysoyev was an employee of the USSR State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcast (state controlled media). He ran a recording studio intended to create content solely for the government media entity. However, Sysoyev frequently brought in his friends and would run late night recording sessions when no one else was around.

    In spite of the loosened restrictions on art and music during the 70s, most Soviet citizens had very limited access to essential American funk records. Sysoyev acquired a small collection of U.S. R&B and Jazz albums in ‘68 from a friend, but that was about it for him and his friends. Yet somehow, this small group of classically trained musicians was able to forge a funky sound of their own. Rooted much deeper in the jazz quartet tradition than the R&B styling of James Brown and The Meters, they tapped into a way of playing jazz with a relentless groove that we endearingly refer to as funk.

  • Soviet Funk Vol. 2

    V/A

    Soviet Funk Vol. 2

    SSR-LP-269

    After Secret Stash Records struck a deal with Pavel Sysoyev to mine his catalog of recorded music we quickly realized that the most difficult part was going to be narrowing down his massive collection into a few user friendly volumes of LP releases. With so much incredible music to work with, this would be no easy task. Volume 1 ultimately served as a nice introduction to Mr. Sysoyev’s catalog. For the most part it was extremely “user-friendly” and accessible (the only exception possibly being the Chizhova/Baykov tunes, which took a pretty big step “outside the box”). While it was what we considered to be an amazing record, it only scratched the surface of the musicality and creativity found in his collection. However, Volume II takes a closer look at the more jazz infused side of Pavel’s signature Soviet Funk sound. It includes more complex compositions and a much more aggressive playing style. However, it still maintains that groovy fun spirit captured so well in Volume 1.

    Bombshell Baby Of Bombay - Nightclub Jazz, Surf and rock & roll from Bollywood films 1959-1972

    BC002

    Featuring 12 tracks of bouncing BOLLYWOOD NIGHTCLUB music, recorded between 1959-1972. The Bollywood industry has alwayes loved anything that draws the crowds into the cinema, and allready in the early 50‘s it proved that the SEXY NIGHT CLUB SCENE was a big crowd puller in prudish India. Set in a dark club with a moody jazz or R&R band, a scarcely dressed vamp sipping whiskey and smoking cigarettes – would perform sexy hip shakes that set the whole male audience on fire. Needless to say that these CLUB DANCES contain some of the most exciting cross-over music ever made, mixing sitars and tablas with jazz, beat and rock & roll. On this album 12 tracks of the golden years night club music, including the classic GUMNAAM and LOAFER and many nuggets that we‘ve freshly dug up for you like the beatlesque sitar groover PRIYA and the infuriated bongo killer madness of KALA BAZAR.

    Native America Calling: Music From Indian Country

    US0402

    Since people first appeared on Turtle Island the land has echoed with music. Animated by the spirit of their surroundings, the land’s first people honored with song each living creature, each vital aspect of life. Medicine men and women used music to heal; song and dance proceeded the hunt or battle; pounding drums and chanting voices fused into a magical vibration that expressed the nature of the land. Messages woven into song united generations and sustained the indigenous community’s balance with the earth.

    The compilation NATIVE AMERICA CALLING is an anthology flavored by the influences of folk, country, rock, blues, jazz, reggae, disco and hip hop. The final song list reflects not the wide range of artists we originally planned. Hopefully a Volume 2 will follow.

    The critically acclaimed thriller that has kept audiences and critics on the edge of their seats this summer, will make its debut on DVD and On Demand this fall from Lionsgate.

    Among the highlights of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are the old time sounds of the Ozarks translated into the 21st century by stellar vocalist Marideth Sisco. Her Ronnie Gilbert (of the Weavers) inspired vocals are absolute joy – and she’s an expert storyteller of the Ozarks region, her spoken word podcast, These Ozarks Hills, can be found online at KSMU.org and on iTunes. Although these musicians are not yet nationally known (yet), this soundtrack will draw attention to these regional heroes; Dennis Crider; an expert Western Swing guitar picker, Missouri bluegrass maverick Bo Brown; claw hammer banjo picker Van Colbert; guitarist and songwriter Rick Reding; and Missouri Ozarks fiddle master Billy Ward (to name but a few) that will delight fans of “No Depression” and classic Americana music.

    Peruvian Funk

    SSR-LP-275

    In April of 2010, Secret Stash Records traveled to Lima, Peru in search of music to bring back to the U.S. and share with the world. While down there, we asked everyone we talked to about Peruvian funk music. No one had any idea what we were talking about. They didn’t even know what funk was. The few people who thought they knew what it was had no recollection of any Peruvian Funk ever existing. Convinced that some form of funk had to exist in Lima during the 70s, and determined to find it, we continued to inquire everywhere we went. After much searching, we finally stumbled over some by total accident.

We have assembled what we consider to be the most definitive collection of classic Cambodian rock music to appear thus far—without the later overdubs that confuse the mind, without the artificial speeding up of tracks that often has marred compilations over the years; what you’ll find here are crucial Khmer rock tracks, made available in the best possible sound, assembled with love and respect for the artists who made the Khmer rock scene as thrilling as we find it to be.

    El sonido de Tupac Amaru

    TROPIC-06

    With this compilation, El Sonido de Tupac Amaru, and accompanying bonus 7” E.P., Masstropicas presents the next installment in their quest to bring you the very finest in Peruvian cumbia.

    El Sonido de Tupac Amaru starts with the slow coastal pulse of Grupo Naranja, while the Amazonian sound of Iquitos Los Silvers’ “Sueño Amazonico” has a smooth and soothing groove that will aurally transport you down the Amazon River in a canoe. Seven out of the ten tracks here feature vocals, such as the legendary voices of Chacal, Pancho Lema, Martin Lopez, and Claudio Moran. The three
    instrumentals featured here are sure to please fans of previous guitar-driven compilations. First comes Pucallpa’s Septima Region; their song “De la Selva Con Furor” starts off with some nasty drumming before drawing you into into a psychedelic guitar sprawl that makes you wonder, “Why weren’t these guys ever compiled before?”

    This compilation also includes a special four song E.P. with the voice of “El patron de la cumbia,” Carlos Ramirez Centeno. The first, a Destellos song, was written by the great Tito Caycho and includes the guitar work of the late Enrique Delgado. Released for the first time on vinyl in the U.S., Carlos Ramirez’s own group, Grupo Centeno, appears with his first 45 hit, “Rico Vacilon.”

    Limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies, this release also comes with a full-color 11” x 22” fold-out with rare photos, scans, and other info taken from interviews with band members. It also comes with a full-color sleeve to accompany the Centeno E.P.

    All songs were a.) either fully licensed from labels or b.) money was directly paid to artists/songwriters.

    No funny business!

    “Country Funk” is a genre created not from geography or shared ideology but a term applied retrospectively based solely on the feel of the songs: hip-swinging rhythms with bourbon on the breath. These are songs to make your cowboy boots itchy, songs that encompass the elation of gospel with the sexual thrust of the blues blended with country hoedown harmonies cut with inner city grit.

    Following 2012’s, Country Funk Volume I: 1969-1975 (8.4 – Pitchfork; Best Reissue of 2012 – Spin), Country Funk Volume II mines tracks from the same period including household names like Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and JJ Cale to more obscure artists like Bill Wilson and Thomas Jefferson Kaye, among others.
