Radio Clandestino playlist 3/5

I hope you had a great week! Catch Radio Clandestino every Monday 230-430pm (ET) at WMUA.

Orlando Julius & his Afro Sounders..."Kete Kete Koro"...Orlando Julius & his Afro Sounders...(Voodoo Funk reissue)


Olatunji..."O-Wa"...Soul Makossa...(Paramount)
Probably my favorite of Olatunji's records, as this one gets into some pretty nasty funk. 



Hypnotic Brass..."Alyo"...10"...(Honest Jons)


No BS Brass!..."Take On Me"...45...(Electric Cowbell)
Instrumental brass band take on the A-Ha! 80s hit.


The Booma Rockers..."Soul Food"...45...(Soundway)
Tasty late 60s gem unearthed by Soundway, featuring future Osibisa saxman Teddy Osei.


JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band..."Haaa-Sheesh"...45...(Soul Fire)


I have always been a fan of Joe Quarterman's tough, topical, street funk and decided to play a few, starting with a funky cover by jazz organist Charles Kynard...
Charles Kynard..."So Much Trouble In My Mind"...Your Mama Don't Dance...(Mainstream)
Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul..."(I've Got) So Much Trouble In My Mind"...Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul...(GSF)
Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul..."This Girl Of Mine (She's Good To Me)"...45...(GSF)
Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul..."The Way They Do My Life"...Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul...(GSF)



The Undisputed Truth..."Smiling Faces Sometimes"...The Undisputed Truth...(Gordy)
The genius of producer Norman Whitfield. A favorite tune of mine going back to my early ears era.



James Knight & The Butlers..."Fantasy World"...Black Knight...(Cat)
Another severely underrated artist, Knight hails from Miami, plays a heavy guitar and wrote some funky psychish jams like this one. The whole LP is stone killer.

The Rhine Oaks..."Tampin'"...v/a-What It Is! Funky Soul & Rare Grooves...(Rhino)
A mysterious Allen Toussaint production. I took it from this fantastic box set.

Mandrill..."Ape Is High"...Mandrill Is...(Polydor)

Funkadelic..."Who Says A Funk Band Can't Play Rock?!"...One Nation Under A Groove...(Warners)



Malo..."Merengue"...Evolucion...(Warners)

Grupo Fantasma..."Teleraña"...El Existential...(Nat Geo Music)



Kokolo with Joe Daddz..."Heaven"...45...(Afro-Kats)
Very hip cover of the Ebo Taylor classic.

Seun Kuti..."The Good Leaf"...From Africa With Fury: Rise...(Knitting Factory)

Tony Allen..."Secret Agent (KidGusto rmx)...(promo)

Irakere..."38 1/2"...Chekere-Son...(Vampisoul)
Cuba's finest reach the boiling point here.

Los Llamas..."Siboney"...v/a-Si, Para Usted vol 2...(Waxing Deep)
Fantastic series of progressive Cuban sounds of the 70s, both recently issued on vinyl. 



Zaperoko..."Zaperokero"...v/a-Subway Salsa...(Vampisoul)
A very cool set of Montuno Records productions, put together by DJ Bongohead and the highest quality Vampisoul notes with LP sleeve reproductions, etc. An essential pick-up!



Rumba Caliente..."Papa Fue"...v/a-Salsa Dura Mundial...(Hard Salsa/Latin Soul)
Fantastic version of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone"!

Temptations..."Shakey Ground"...45...(Gordy)
