3 - MOODS - MOODS - (LP) 
BBE


BBE unearths yet another rare gem with the self titled soul album from Moods. 'Moods' was the self titled debut (and only) album from a local St. Louis vocal group headed up by band leader, musician and producer Melvin Turnage. The group met in high school and disbanded soon afterwards, although Turnage is still touring with his own band, performing alongside Harry Belafonte, Shalamar and Sammy Davis Jr. over the years.Originally released in 1978, 'Moods' is a fantastic example of the 'Modern Soul' sound which bridged the gap between Northern Soul and Disco, introducing synthesisers alongside incredibly tight vocal harmonies and lush instrumental arrangements. Only a tiny number of copies are still in existence, making this LP highly sought after by record collectors

TRACKLISTING: 01. Grooving When We Meet 02. You Came Into My Life 03. Neither One Of Us 04. This Magic 05. Live Today 06. Without Her 07. Funk It Out

5 - OYEWOLE, EJI - CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME - (LP) 
BBE


BBE rolls on with their masters we love series with the long forgotten classic Charity Begin At Home from Eji Oyewole. Another long-lost classic from the golden age of African music, from a figure who is still beginning to get his props internationally, Eji Oyewole. Born to a royal lineage in Ibadan, Prince Eji Oyewole has had a career as a flautist, saxophonist and sometime bandleader spanning well over half a century. He trained both in Nigeria and then at Trinity the prestigious music school in London, and his life as an itinerant musician also saw him living for extensive periods in Geneva, Hamburg and in Lyon. While for many years Fela Kuti (with whom Eji played) and King Sunny Ad commanded international attention to the exclusion of most other Nigerian musicians, as if there was only room for one Nigerian superstar at a time on the world stage, on the domestic scene things were very different. Eji was part of the huge craze for highlife, a generic term that in fact subsumed many different styles, united in their fusion of traditional west African forms with jazz influences and electric instruments, and in the bands working practices as entertainers at the nations numerous hotel/nightclubs.As this cracking album, recorded for EMI Nigeria at the tail end of the 70s and now remastered, reveals, Ejis version of highlife was even more distinctive than most, eschewing the usual emphasis on guitars for a brasher horn-laden sound, seemingly influenced as much by American funk as it was jazz, and of course with the heavy percussive undertow central to most African music. This gave Eji a chance to shine, and there are some scorching solos as well as tight ensemble playing across the four lengthy (to ears accustomed to the threeminute pop song) songs. Eji also played piano on the session. The material has an element of social commentary (Oil Boom and Unity In Africa) and should help feed the seemingly insatiable appetites of the many who have been turned onto African music by the enterprising efforts of devoted collectors, labels and fellow fans. Surely one of the few musicians who has played with Fela, Miles Davis and Bob Marley, Eji Oyewole still plays regularly in Lagos, recently had an album of new material out with his current band The Afrobars, and has been a member of Faaji Agba, a super-group that has toured internationally and been dubbed the Nigerian Buena-Vista Social Club.

7 - VARIOUS - DISCO LOVE 4 - (LP) 
BBE


Scotlands foremost (possibly only) disco obsessive returns with a fourth volume in the critically acclaimed Disco Love series. Previous volumes had critics saying things like "Some of it is risqu, cheesy and (may I say) sexy. Great stuff for us disco-geeks" and "A real gem for the disco connoisseurs" and "This will enhance any deep disco collection" and "the ever-reliable Glaswegian crate digger unearths even more dusty gems" and "Just when you think that Al Kent guy is not going to get you again, he assembles a third Disco Love that is more stimulating than the first two volumes" and, less excitingly, "The mastering and sound quality is great".So, just when you think that Al Kent guy isnt going to get you again, here he is - with fifteen more obscure disco tracks (or at the very least soul records you could dance to), most of which were pressed in limited quantities before sinking without trace.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Clear Feat. Lee Edwards - Equal Love Opportunity (al Kent Re-edit) 02. Barbara Jean English - If It Feels This Good 03. Genobia Jeter - Things Got To Get Better 04. Emanuel Laskey - I'd Rather Leave On My Feet 05. Hazel Rambaransingh - I Wanna Give You Everything (al Kent Re-edit) 06. Mary Mundy - Love Is Gone (al Kent Re-edit) 07. Marva Hicks - Looking Over My Shoulder 08. Old (m) Pressions - Right On 09. Lee Edwards - I Found Love 10. Symbol 8 - Call Me 11. Joe Casey And Fresh Heir - Let Me Hold You (al Kent Re-edit) 12. Perfect Touch - Keep On Loving You (al Kent Re-edit) 13. Betty Everett -prophecy 14. Skip Mahoaney & The Casuals - Running Away From Love (al Kent Re-edit) 15. Fresh Fruit - A Song For You
