WBSLP017 RAMONCITO Y SU SALSA

limited edition of 300 copies only!
BARCODE 4040824083441
 
Ramon Pérez B., Ramoncito, was born in La Habana, Cuba, where along with dancers Alejandra del Rio, her sister Manuela Sandra and cousins Miriam and Reglita (artistically known as Las Mulatas del Caribe) and some local musicians formed a troupe that would soon be performing in dance venues through Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. It was in Brazil were Spanish showbiz impresario Matías Coslada signed them and brought the troupe to Spain. Ramoncito is recognized as one of the introducers of caribbean rhythms in Spain, and since the very early sixties he has been a regular at the hottest nightclubs of the country. He established his residency in Barcelona, where through local label Discophon he released five splendid 45s that where compiled as an LP in 1978.
 
Reissued here for the first time, Ramoncito's 1978 album is a compendium of the hottest and best latin rhythms ever recorded in Europe, placing it up there with the best releases of legend labels such as Tico, Seeco or Fania, sharing influences and repertoire with the likes of Ismael Rivera / Cortijo y su Combo, Hector Lavoe, Hector Rivera, Willie Colón, Ray Barreto, Johnny Pacheco, a.o.
 
'Heavy salsa with a trans-Atlantic vibe -- great sounds recorded by Ramoncito in 70s Spain!  Ramoncito's Cuban by birth, but spent most of his time working overseas -- and the grooves here have a strong blend of Afro-Cuban roots with some other Central American touches -- a really wonderful style that makes the music a great new discovery.' (Rick Wojcik - Dusty Groove)
 
It comes in remastered sound, laminated sleeve and a gatefold insert with detailed liners written by Txarly Brown ('Achilifunk') and photos.
 
Ramon Pérez B., Ramoncito, nació en La Habana, Cuba, y junto con las bailarinas Alejandra del Rio, su hermana Manuela Sandra y sus primas Miriam y Reglita (conocidas artísticamente como Las Mulatas del Caribe) y algunos músicos locales formaron una troupe que pronto se encontraría actuando en salas de baile de Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina y Brasil. Fue en Brasil donde el empresario del mundo del espectáculo Matías Coslada les contrató para traerlos a España. Ramoncito es altamente reconocido como uno de los introductores de los ritmos caribeños en nuestro país, y desde muy a principios de los sesenta ha sido un habitual de los locales nocturnos del país. Estableció su residencia en Barcelona, donde el sello local Discophon le editó cinco espléndidos singles que fueron recopilados en el LP de 1978 objeto de esta reedición.
 
Por primera vez disponible desde 1978, el LP de Ramoncito es un compendio de los mejores y más calientes ritmos latinos jamás grabados en Europa, estando a la altura de las mejores producciones de sellos legendarios como Tico, Seeco o Fania, y comparte influencias y repertorio con grandes del género como Ismael Rivera / Cortijo y su Combo, Hector Lavoe, Hector Rivera, Willie Colón, Ray Barreto, Johnny Pacheco, etc.
 
Edición remasterizada, con portada laminada brillo y un inserto con detalladas notas a cargo de Txarly Brown ('Achilifunk') y fotos.

NEIL ARDLEY 'A SYMPHONY OF AMARANTHS'
 
BARCODE  4040824082789
 


 
First ever vinyl reissue of this 1972 masterpiece by another of the big names in UK Jazz. Neil Ardley was offered the leadership of the seminal New Jazz Orchestra in 1964. Under his direction the Orchestra moved though different styles and changes of personnel, bringing in musicians such as Mike Gibbs (trombone), Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther (trumpets) or even Jack Bruce (bass), some of them also contributed with the writing of some original compositions, making the NJO the root from which the UK's 70's jazz scene was to blossom.
 
By 1972 the NJO was already defunct, but his legacy remained in the works of its members. Ardley's 'A Symphony Of Amaranths' is a perfect example of what was boiling in the UK jazz scene. It was Ardleys tribute to his idols Duke Ellington and Gil Evans, and featured the skills of some great musicians of the scene including Don Rendell, Stan Tracey, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, Jeff Clyne & Jon Hiseman. Side B is inspired by the words of Edward Lear, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce and Lewis Carroll that are musicated by Ardley and feature, among other highlights, Ivor Cutler's narration of 'The Dong With A Luminous Nose' and Norma Winstone's vocals on 'Will You Walk A Little Faster'.
 
Reeditado por primera vez en vinilo desde su edición original en 1972, os presentamos una obra maestra de uno de los grandes nombres del UK Jazz. Neil Ardley dirigió la New Jazz Orchestra entre 1964 y 1970, año de la disolución de esta influyente big band inglesa. Bajo su batuta la NJO se movió con comodidad entre diferentes estilos y dió ocasión de despuntar a músicos de la talla de, entre otros, Mike Gibbs (trombón), Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther (trompetas) o incluso Jack Bruce (bajo), músicos que aportarían composiciones propias al repertorio de la Orchestra, convirtiéndola en la raiz de la que florecería la escena jazz inglesa de los '70.
 
En 1972 la NJO se había disuelto ya, pero su legado permanecía en los trabajos de sus antiguos miembros. La pieza 'A Symphony Of Amaranths" de Neil Ardley es un perfecto ejemplo de lo que se cocía en la escena del UK Jazz. Es un tributo a sus ídolos Duke Ellington y Gil Evans, y en ella colaboran algunos de los más importantes músicos del movimiento, incluyendo a Don Rendell, Stan Tracey, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, Jeff Clyne y Jon Hiseman. La inspiración de la cara B del LP parte de textos de Edward Lear, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce y Lewis Carroll, musicados por Ardley, que nos ofrece momentos tan brillantes como la narración por parte de  Ivor Cutler's de 'The Dong With A Luminous Nose' o la extraordinaria voz de Norma Winstone's interpretando 'Will You Walk A Little Faster'.

RABBIT RUMBA
PRIMERA ANTOLOGIA DE LA RUMBA

(WAH WAH RECORDS SUPERSONIC SOUNDS WBSLP014)
 
HAMMOND GROOVES DRIVEN GIPSY RUMBA MASTERPIECE!

The most sought after LP of the Catalan Rumba movement. First 300 copies including a bonus 7” with unreleased mixes of  "Nuestro Ayer" and "Para Elisa"!
 
Reedición del disco más buscado de la Rumba Catalana, las 300 primeras copias incluyen single de regalo con dos mixes inéditos de "Nuestro Ayer" y "Para Elisa"


In 1972 Josep Cunill, after having spent some years touring Latin America with several professional orchestras, most notably The Latin Combo, was comissioned by producer Miguel Casas to record an anthology gathering some of the most popular catalan rumba tunes. He entered Gema Studios with some of the most reputed musicians of the genre to record "Rabbit Rumba". With the basic tracks covering some of the most successful artists of the genre like Peret or Los Amaya y su Combo Gitano laid in Gema 1 studio he finished the tapes at Gema 2 with the help of a Hammond X-77 that he used to produce layers of cool organ sounds. The resulting recordings have been labeled as "the Jackie Mitoo of Catalan Rumba!" or sort of "Jimmt Smith if surrendered by gipsies!" Cunill's rumba benefited of this great musician's high experience in all sort of latin sounds, he brought from Latin American & Caribbean shores a rhythm cadence that was then uncommon in catalan rumba and that makes "Rabbit Rumba" one of the most interesting and sought after albums of the genre.
The good news is that paying high amounts for a vinyl copy of this little gem is over, since thanks to Wah Wah this wonder of rumba sound is available again... Though for a limited time, only 500 copies have been pressed. The first 300 of them feature a bonus single that includes two remixes of the album made by Makala (Euskadi Gaztea) and Miguelito Superstar (FTM).
 
 
En 1972 Josep Cunill, tras años de gira por Latino América y el Caribe con diversas orquestas profesionales, la más notable de ellas el Latin Combo, recibió el encargo del productor Miguel Casas de grabar una antología de la rumba catalana. Entró así en los estudios Gema 1 con algunos de los más reputados instrumentistas del género y un repertorio formado por hits de maestros rumberos como Peret o Los Amaya y su Combo Gitano para grabar las bases de "Rabbit Rumba". Posteriormente, en los estudios Gema 2 Cunill, con la ayuda de un Hammond X-77, añadió las cálidas capas de sonido de órgano que le han dado la fama de "el Jackie Mitoo de la rumba catalana" o "un Jimmy Smith rodeado de gitanos." Cunill aportó a la rumba catalana la cadencia rítmica caribeña aprendida en sus años en ultramar, un interesante contrapunto del que hasta entonces carecía el género.
 
La buena notícia es que por fín este disco está disponible en vinilo sin necesidad de gastar pequeñas fortunas gracias a Wah Wah. Por tiempo limitado, eso sí, ya que se trata de una edición de 500 copias, y con las 300 primeras que se pondrán a la venta incluyendo un single de regalo con remezclas realizadas por Makala (Euskadi Gaztea) y Miguelito Superstar (FTM).

HEINZ VON MOISY - IRISATION LAS PLANTAS (*)

WAH WAH RECORDS SUPERSONIC SOUNDS WBSLP013

Great but still rather unknown german spiritual jazz including the massive "Nil", originally compiled by Rainer Trüby on the second volume of the Glücklich series (along Sail Joia and Niagara).

It’s about time to exhumate this gem from the 70’s german jazz underground for your listening pleasure !.

Drummer Heinz Von Moisy leads Irisation, an incredible quintet formed Carlo Domeniconi (acoustic guitar), Manfred Burzlaff (vibraphon), Dieter Gützkow (bass), Ulrich Moritz (percussion) and Von Moissy himself performing six self-penned original numbers (either by Domeniconi or Burlaff) that cross a wide selection of moods and atmospheres; from the free and fragile delicacy of Nil, which builds from silence to reach the most inspired climax, to the sunny guitar licks of "Samba Do Contrabandista" via the cinematic "La Carretera" or the irresistibly hypnotic "Mirage", let’s not forget the eastern-flavoured track-title "Las plantas". Full of exotic, almost oriental touches and breezy brazilian vibes, this is an album to discover and treasure !!

Originally released by the tiny Thorofon label in 1977, now Wah Wah brings it back from oblivion in a limited issue strictly limited to 500 copies housed in a nice cover reproducing the original artwork by member Ulli Moritz . Better grab one now !!

Strictly limited edition. 500 copies. Get it now or cry later!

WBSLP012  VARIOUS'HEAVY FUNKY BEAUTIFUL SOULFUL'

Wah Wah Records has the pleasure to introduce you to what it is with no boubt the best soul and funk compilation ever issued in Spain in the 1970’s. HEAVY, FUNKY, SOULFUL! Was originally issued by Discophon in 1972 featuring recordings licensed from small sub labels of Philadelphia’s seminal soul label "pre-TSOP" Jamie Records. Under the "Young Black America’s music" caption we find the works of talented producers such as Paul Kyser or Van McCoy, originally issued on labels such as Phi-La Of Soul, Silver Dollar or Top & Bottom. The tunes vary from minor commercial hits like the People’s Choice funk classic "I Likes To Do It" –a combo which is supposed to be Al Green’s first band- to obscure deep funk rarities like "Super Funkt Pts. I & II", by Thunder, Lightning and Rain, originally issued on the highly collectable Saadia label, plus big funky R&B tracks such as Benny Gordon’s "Give A Damn" or one of DJ Shadow’s "Brainfreeze" sampled tunes as is Un-Sound Express Ltd.’s "Ain’t It Good Enough For You." As extra goodies, the Wah Wah reissue includes two bonus tracks also released in Spain at the time: the superb killer mod dancer "The Train" by Joe Jeffrey and an always coveted northern soul floorshaker reissued here for the first time ever: Jerry Tiffe’s "Hey Watcha Doin’," originally recorded for the New York label Scepter Records, famous among others for most of the Shirelles output and other girl groups. A truly solid compilation that will please both soul afficionados and funk dancers, and I assure you it won’t be easy to grab an original copy so better get this reissue before it’s too late !

Reissue of the official 60ts live set from Prince Buster (also known as King of Ska). During the mid sixties Cecil Campbell recorded lots of ska/rocksteady hits, later popularized by 2 Tone bands in the late eighties (becoming the beginning of the ska revival era). Hits like "Madness" (guess who took their name from here?), "Al Capone" or "Cincinatti Kid" mixed with the soulful rocksteady beat which evolved into worldwide popular reggae style. A masterpiece from the jamaican Otis Reading.

WBSLP008 ASTRUD GILBERTO 'With Turrentine'

Astrud & Stanley's only LP for CTI, recorded in 1971, is now available again in a splendid new gatefold cover. This should already be a classic, as everything touched by the hand of Eumir Deodato deserves. The interesting thing here is that aside from the fantastic performances of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz" (a superb rendition by Stanley Turrentine!), "Brazilian Tapestry" or "Traveling light", we are reissuing the Spanish version of the album which features the two spanish sung covers of "Love story" and "For all we know". As a bonus, sides a & b of the superb Spanish single from 1972 "Acercándome a ti" and "En tu piel" , both written by Ennio Morricone and produced by the best producer from this country Manolo Díaz, are included in the package. "Acercándome a ti" is probably one of the very best songs Astrud Gilberto has sung, a very nice easy-with-strings tune backed by a you-must-hear-it-to-believe-it fuzz guitar sound from outer space. Groovy!
