Series: Jazz Dispensary Top Shelf Series
Released:1971 (2017 Reissue)

Coffee, Smoke, Fire.  A big ol’ slab of jazz funk, propelled by the beast known as Idris Muhammad, behind the kit.  Craft Recordings started this sub imprint called “Jazz Dispensary”, music viewed through a suggested, but rather vague marijuana/420 type lens.  Their RSD comps are killer as well, very well curated.  I’ll be talking about Jazz Dispensary during tonight’s spin sesh, prepping for Sunday’s Show. Join me at 9PM EST if you wanna hear some tunes and nerd out about music.   Talking with you guys and reading your live comments is the best part, looking forward to it.

Mr. Bongo Bundle, LP 3/3
First needledrop.  Didn’t get to it yesterday, definitely more disco but always through that rich, African lens.  Listen for yourselves, your ears are the only critic that matters.  Fuck critics, they don’t know better than you do.  Listen, like they did.  Now your opinion is just as valid.

Mr. Bongo Bundle, LP 2/3
Nigerian 70’s super funk. I played side one of this yesterday as well, remember that James Brown/Kool & The Gang sounding Africa sound? This. Proper listening confirms a good pressing as well. This yellow one is a VMP exclusive but Mr. Bongo also released a regular version, which should be available in your local shops that carry this sort of awesome.

Mr. Bongo Bundle, LP 1/3

 This was the afrobeat album I was playing for some of you, on yesterday’s live feed.  Yesterday was the first needledrop, it was AWESOME to see how many of you dug it.  It was even more awesome to be able to have a community spin sesh like we did.  I’m giving this a proper spin today.  Side 2 is every bit as amazing as side one, funky as funky can be.  Immediate recommend, for fans of Fela and funky 70s Africa in general.
