Back To Mine with Ray Mang

Afters hours grooving…

01. Zazou, Bikaye and CY1 – MʼPasi Ya MʼPamba
Afro experimental electronic fusion from ʼ83. The whole album is amazing but this track blows my mind.

02. Tappa Zukie – Freak
His only reggae / dub goes disco record from ʼ78. Job done!

03. Nana Love – Iʼm In Love
Nuts afro funk disco from ʼ78. Nana from Ghana but on the circuit in Nigeria. Pure entertainment.

04. Randolph Baker – Getting Next To You
Fantastic album cut from ʼ82 thatʼs popped up again a couple of times in recent years.

05. Ball Players – Universal Language
Trippy jam from ʼ83 recently re-issued by the wonderful Peoples Potential Unlimited.

06. Rim & Kasa – Love Me For Real
Rim Kwaku Obeng, as legend has it, went to the US to play session for Felu Kuti and stayed. He went on to make a string of incredible records this being my favourite.

07. Charly Kingson – Born In Africa
The title cut from a brilliant album from ʼ78. Charly is Manu Dibangoʼs cousin and the album is produced by a personal favourite Klaus Weiss.

08. Pastor T. L. Barrett And The Youth For Christ Choir – Like A Ship (Without A Sail)
Gospel funk from ʼ71 recently re-issued by Light In The Attic.

09. Steve Miller Band – Journey From Eden
Psychedelic trip ballad gem from ʼ72.

10. Shawn Phillips – I Donʼt Want To Leave You, I Just Came To Say Good- Bye
Must have been tough working with such a terrible backing band Shawn! ;-)]
