Posted by Ernie Goggins at 4 comments:. Friday, 16 July Mpharanyana Returns. In the early days of this blog I tried to pursue two "campaigns" well, three if you count the half-hearted attempt to get Roger Whittaker elected to the International Whistlers' Convention Hall of Fame. One was to promote Tsonga Disco and the other was the bring to the world's attention the works of the late Mpharanyana, the greatest South African soul singer of the s, and probably of any era.
The Tsonga Disco campaign continues, and there will be some new treats for you in the next couple of weeks, Dorian Concept - Joined Ends Remix EP (File) after three months of having a Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma "Mpharanyana on Monday" slot that petered out.
But in those early days I was averaging about five hits a day, and three of those were me checking to see if anyone else had passed by, so even most of our current regulars will probably have missed Mpharanyana.
For that reason I thought we should bring him back. Posted by Ernie Goggins at 2 comments:. Wednesday, 14 July Congregating. Congregacion were a particularly hairy bunch of Chileans who released one album, "Viene", in They were led by one Antonio Smith, who within twelve months of its release had hopped over the border to Argentina after Pinochet toppled Allende I may be maligning him but I'm guessing the General wasn't mad keen on hippies.
Antonio carried on working in Argentina, releasing an album Viniti - Various - Cameroon Zouk Love Stars (Afro-Zouk) the group Sol in and one in his own name the year after, which you can Kohlstream - My Vitriol - Finelines from En Busca Del Tiempo Perdido.
He apparently remains a legendary figure among the older and fartier variety of Chilean music fans. Maybe one for all you Fleet Foxes fans out there, he says in a pathetic attempt to appear "relevant". Now as it happens there was an English group with a virtually identical My One And Only Love - Chuck Mangione - Tarantella knocking around at the same time.
Here they are with their mega-hit from Tuesday, 13 July Roger-itis. At first I assumed this was Viniti - Various - Cameroon Zouk Love Stars (Afro-Zouk) name of the band and that Roger had put his name on the front to distinguish it from other, bootleg versions of Haute Dimension - a bit like Brian Connolly's Sweet, for example.
But it turns out that "Haute Dimension" is the name of the album, and the man responsible is not Black Roger but Black Roger's. I cannot explain the extraneous apostrophe. As well Viniti - Various - Cameroon Zouk Love Stars (Afro-Zouk) Roger's himself the sleeve notes list all the other musicians etc, but not one of them turns up on Google so apart from the fact that it was made in Cameroon I can tell you nothing more about it.
The album is mostly a mixture of zouk and makossa and, while nothing special, it is pleasant enough. One track that stands out stylistically is "Danser Avec Toi", which sounds as if it could have been recorded in Louisiana.
Here it is with one of the zouk numbers. Sunday, 11 July Rickie Lee Live. I last saw her about twenty years ago at the Dominion Theatre and on that occasion she gave the distinct impression that she really didn't want to be there. That certainly wasn't the case on Friday. We got two hours and fifteen minutes and she only stoppped then because she was told she had to they have a curfew at the venue.
Another difference was that while at the Dominion she hid behind the piano for the whole show, this time round she mainly played guitar - although with a few numbers at the piano and a brief stint behind the drums for "Satellites".
Accompanied by Joey Maramba on bass and effects and Wyatt Stone on just about everything else, there was a loose feel to the music which really suits her style. And she was in great voice. I'm not sure any Rickie Lee agnostics would have been converted on Friday, but for a long time fan like me it was a great experience. We were treated to some selections from all of her albums apart from "Ghostyhead" and the two albums of cover versions.
Many of them were old Viniti - Various - Cameroon Zouk Love Stars (Afro-Zouk) I hadn't been expecting, and at least some of them came as a surprise to the two lads as well. Frequently Wyatt Stone would have to linger tentatively waiting to hear what Rickie Lee was going to launch into next before heading off to whatever instrument was required.
There were too many highlights to list them all, but there was one particularly good sequence that kicked off with "Living It Up", which started off fairly faithful to the original but halfway through turned into a banging dance track with the introduction of a heavy drum loop. It was followed by "His Jeweled Floor" from last year's "Balm In Gilead"which begun almost as a gospel number and ended as a mad noise freak-out.
And then Rickie slowed it all down with a lovely version of "Bonfires" also from "Balm In Gilead" which was just her and her guitar. This message is directed to our UK readers. As you may already be aware, there is a campaign underway to make the late, lamented Frank Sidebottom a posthumous pop star by getting as many people as possible to download "Guess Who's Been On Match Of The Day" this week. If everyone who ever loved him does so then he is bound to be in the charts.
