Congo’s turbulent and exhilarating ’70s: Nightclubs and dance floors were packed to the brim in the capital, Kinshasa. Exuberant crowds, still giddy from independence a decade prior, grooved to the sounds of the country’s classics. In fact the whole continent was submerged into the Congolese Rumba craze. Encouraged by the fantastic productions of the Ngoma […]

The Electric Peanut Butter Company – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol.1
Friday, October 24th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Electric Peanut Butter Company – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol.1

Image: 1592715 Attracting much fanfare and garnering tons of plays by tastemakers, radio stations-in-the-know, and DJ’s alike, the first Electric Peanut Butter Company album was jar-full of ‘60s psychedelic goodness. But guess what? The dynamic duo of Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada are back with Vol.1 of their Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics masterpiece!

Adrian Quesada is a man on a mission! He has been killing it in both the recording studio and on the live stage. While on his Brown Sabbath (Brownout) & Spanish Gold albums/tours he found stolen moments in hotel rooms whilst on tour to send musical compadre Shawn Lee tracks for the second Electric Peanut Butter Company album entitled Trans- Atlantic Psych Classics Vol 1 !!!!!
The band of brothers created the music in the same fashion as their debut but with a noticeably fuzzier more dirtier edge. The album starts with Flexi Funk. On this track the drums were recorded straight to Flexi disc on a 1950’s tube machine which
sounds other worldly and crusty as f#@k!!!
Other highlights include the psych pop gem Spread The Jam which declares the duos intentions. The album has a more heavy psych vibe than it’s predecessor but deftly continues a logical progression for Los Hermanos Adrian Quesada & Shawn Lee.
Two of the hardest working musicians in show bidness and from the looks of it, just getting started! Spread the jam….

1 Flexi Funk – 3:41
2 Beer Good – 2:07

The Electric Peanut Butter – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol.2
Monday, November 25th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Electric Peanut Butter – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol.2

Image: 1584518 The sound of “The Electric Peanut Butter Co. is spreading across the nation!” With this proud declaration Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada’s collaboration album is on it’s way so get ready to JAM!
As mutual fans of each others work, both Shawn and Adrian always looked for a way to work with each other and after meeting in Adrian’s hometown of Austin in 2010 for SXSW it was decided it was time to get to work once their respective schedules freed up. Inspired by ‘60s freaky psychedelic folk, rock, soul and all funky tidbits in-between and bands such as Los Angeles Negros, Federal Duck, US69 and El Chicano the duo set forth on their task to create “Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol.2.” The album’s name references the recording process behind it’s creation. Both heavily steeped in studio experience and amazing multi-instrumentalists in their own regard, partial songs and sometimes single tracks were recorded and sent back and forth across the pond. Shawn’s signature monster drums along with Adrian’s slinky basslines are the main ingredients in all the songs, creating a layer of rhythm that’s crunchy and buttery smooth throughout. They then took turns with guitars, percussion, keys and various other instruments in Shawn’s studio pantry to complete the songs. The spontaneity, freedom and fun both had in making the record is evident by the relatively short two month period it took to finish.
Lead-off track “The Rain” sets the tone with it’s driving beat and ‘60s flavored pop-psych-folk-funk-rock amalgamation that permeates the entire record. The more sinister side of psychedelia is also explored with songs such as “Back Street Wall” about the end of the world and “The Devil” which is their take on the classic tales of fire and brimstone with “El Diablo” personified as the metaphor of all that is evil. A rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” filtered through flavors and stylings of “The Dramatics” and “El Chicano” as described by Adrian balances out the dark with a bit of cheer and light. Shawn steps out of his “Ping Pong Orchestra” instrumental persona to do all the lead vocals throughout, providing the final, essential ingredient to the mix. Fans of both Shawn and Adrian’s instrumental excursions need not fret as a spoonful’s worth of dusty, cinematic, soulful and heavy grooves are blended in for good measure to round out this tasty treat!

1 The Rain – 3:24
2 Backstreet Wall – 3:10
3 Cold Blood – 3:06
4 Dreams – 3:04
5 El Prudence – 2:06
6 Big Tweed – 3:42

As with our introductory anthology of this kind (Psych Funk 101 – WPFC 101) this anthology covers the “golden years” of the movement, from approximately 1970 until 1983. Much of the music on this compilation springs from […]

Betty Davis – The Columbia Years 1968-1969
Friday, July 8th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Betty Davis – The Columbia Years 1968-1969

Image: 1605070 One can hardly imagine Prince, Erykah Badu, or Outkast without the influence of Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women can’t be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music. Betty penned the song ”Uptown” for The Chambers Brothers and wrote the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown. The Detroit label soon came calling, pitching a Motown songwriting deal, which Betty turned down. Motown wanted to own everything. Heading to the UK, Marc Bolan of T. Rex urged the creative dynamo to start writing for herself. A common thread throughout Betty’s career would be her unbending DIY ethic, which made her quickly turn down anyone who didn’t fit with the vision. She would eventually say no to Eric Clapton as her album producer, seeing him as too banal. In 1968, she married Miles Davis and quickly influenced him on the magic of psychedelic rock along with introducing him to Jimi Hendrix-personally inspiring the classic album, Bitches Brew.

Miles and Betty fans have long debated the truth of a near mythological session recorded in Studios B and E at Columbia’s 52nd Street Studios on May 14th and 20th, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles and Teo Macero and featured Betty on vocals, accompanied by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, guitarist John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock on keys, and Dylan/Miles session bassist Harvey Brooks. Other players included bassist Billy Cox (Band of Gypsys), saxophonist Wayne Shorter, and organist Larry Young. Now, Light In The Attic, with full support from Betty herself, presents these recordings to the public for the very first time. These historic sessions-never heard, never bootlegged-predate Miles’ revolutionary album, Bitches Brew, and are the true birth of Miles’ jazz-rock explorations, along with the roots for Betty’s groundbreaking funk that came years later, starting with her self-titled debut in 1973. While, ultimately, these recordings would go unreleased for nearly half a century, they would greatly shape each of their careers.

The vibe is intrinsically unique, fresh, and futuristic-jazz heavyweights playing psychedelia, rock, and jazz-fusion long before the term became commonplace. The songs include Betty originals and covers of classics by Creedence and Cream. The concepts explored on these previously unheard sessions fueled concepts that wouldn’t be fully realized until years later with Miles’ seminal On The Corner.

Additionally, included here is the first time rerelease of a 1968 Columbia single, recorded in October 1968 at Columbia Studios in Los Angeles. The session was produced by Jerry Fuller and featured South African maverick Hugh Masekela on trumpet and arrangements, plus members of jazz-funk pioneers The Crusaders-including trombonist Wayne Henderson and pianist Joe Sample. Two of the three tracks included here from this session are previously unreleased.

This deluxe package is a treasure trove for both Betty and Miles fans, including rare documents from the pen of co-producer Teo Macero, rarely seen photos from legendary photographer Baron Wolman, and new interviews with Mrs. Davis herself, Harvey Brooks, and Hugh Masekela-the entire project overseen with Betty’s full blessing.

HIGHLIGHTS:
* All tracks previously unreleased (except track B5/8)
* Production by Miles Davis & Teo Macero with performances from Hugh Masekela, Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix Experience), John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Harvey Brooks, Wayne Shorter, Billy Cox (Band of Gypsys), Larry Young, and members of The Jazz Crusaders

Various – Love’s A Real Thing
Thursday, April 10th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Love’s A Real Thing

Image: 1588077 Luaka Bop dig deep into their mesmerizing catalog to repress the classic World Pyschedelic Classics: 3 Love’s a Real Thing on double vinyl. First time all compilation tracks are available on vinyl, come rediscover the album that introduced the Western world to William Onyeabor.

First time all compilation tracks available on LP! The twelve tracks on the record explore West Africa’s groove-heavy assimilation of the psychedelic revolution, albeit a few years (and a couple thousand miles) removed from 1967’s Summer of Love. Spanning countries such as Mali, Gambia, Benin, Nigeria, Ghana, and Cameroon, this collection spotlights a time of incredible creative fermentation, reflecting on colonialism’s more fortunate byproduct: the fascinating and unique intersection of hallucinogenic, distorted Western psychedelia and local, traditional African music. This phenomenon of Afro-Rock is what lies at the heart of Love’s A Real Thing. This was one of the first compilations of Afro Funk and helped introduce William Onyeabor’s music to the world. Luaka Bop’s celebrated World Psychedelic Classics series began in 2000 with Volume 1: Brazil, a compilation of the inimitable genremelding Brazilian band Os Mutantes, entitled Everything Is Possible! Volume 2: California Soul , released in 2001 as the third solo record from multi-instrumentalist Shuggie Otis (Inspiration Information), successfully reintroduced Shuggie to the world at large. Volume 4, Tim Maia: Existential Soul and Volume 5: Who Is William Onyeabor.
