This Week's Playlist:(* = new)
/ Various Artists: Vaya Rumba
/ Music Club
Taken from perhaps the only US-distributed compliation of Rumba Catalan from Spain. The beloved Peret is one of the originators of this style; this track was originally released in 1965.
Everything I Own
/ Everything I Own: The Best of Ken Boothe
This version by Ken Boothe of Bread's hit reached number one on the UK singles chart for three weeks in October 1974
In the Midnight Hour
/ Soul on Fire
/ African Music Gallery
Led by Vincent Nguini, originally from Cameroon. He's played with Manu Dibango and others. This track features the great Syran Mbenza on guitar.
YMO bassist and brilliant musical visionary. Paraiso was the third LP in his 1970s (pre-YMO) "Exotica Trilogy". There's recent a clip of Hosono performing this song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToI3_J914po
/ Lug Lae Kidteung (?)
From farsidemusic.com: "Young Swedish guy goes to Thailand and masters the quintissential Thai lukthung way of singing. Becomes a star, and is acknowledged not just as some novelty blue eyed blond haired lukthung singer, but the equal of most top Thai male singers. Strange but true." (Note from Rob W: CD title listed here may be incorrect; I have this song on an unlabeled dub.)
