Austin Record Scores

Well the Austin trip was a blast as usual. Saw some great live music and hit a couple record stores. Record shopping was cut short due to credit card being stolen which was a major bummer but a decent haul at least. I managed to hit End Of An Ear and Breakaway but my card was stolen before I hit Antone's Records. I went to a few other stores I won't name but because their prices were just insane.

End Of An Ear

Breakaway Records

Double LP Analog Africa set.

Triple LP Soundway Record set.

Triple LP Soundway Record set.

Double LP Soundway Record set.

Worthy Records reissue. Mulatu is one of my favorite vibe guys.

I picked this up in a thrift store. How could I leave it lol.

This was the bargain of the trip $5 1956 Beat Tropicale.

I also hit a large Arthur Lyman stash. I'll only post one of these but it is a xmas record. I typically hate xmas music and this is only my second xmas record. This is a good one if you are into exotica.

Soundway Records Presents Sound Of Siam

I've been hooked on labels like Soundway Records. The music they release is very important and interesting. I own several of their LP releases. Usually I concentrate on the African music but Sound Of Siam is Thai and I like it alot. I get bored with modern music quickly so it is great that these musical archaeologist are bringing us these gems.

Here are a couple youtube samples from Soundway.

Soundway Records Presents The World Ends Afro Rock and Psychedelia

Soundway Records Presents The World Ends Afro Rock and Psychedelia in 1970s Nigeria. This is an eMusic exclusive digital release. I am obsessed with African music of the 70's. This music is so vibrant alive and groov'n. I hope to find more Soundway releases in Austin this coming weekend. Soundway is one of the most important record labels currently in operation. Thank you Soundway for making this music available.

Sample the tracks on eMusic.

UK Soundway Records Releases Lost African Music


My new favorite label for buying vinyl is Soundway Records. They are releasing very important music from Africa. The music is amazing and rivals anything else going on in the 70's. If you like highlife, afrobeat, funk, disco, Nigerian blues or African Jazz you have to check out this label. This music is amazing.

I never tire of this music. It is just one groove after another. This weekend I had a grillout party where I was spinning these Soundway Records. The music infectious everyone was asking about this music and dancing around. You just can't keep still while this music is on.

You can listen to a few samples here
