* The World Ends: Afro-Rock and Psychedelia in 1970s Nigeria by various artists This is the latest collection from the incredible Soundways Records. I spent nearly half my monthly credits on this cool collection, but it’s worth it.
In the early ’70s, following the bloody Biafran civil war, Jimi Hendrix guitar and James Brown funk invaded Nigeria.
And I like the advice of Chuck Barrister & The Voices of Darkness: “Be Kind, Be Foolish, Be Happy.”
* Reform School Girl by Nick Curran & The Lowlifes. I owe Los Alamos music fiend Russ Gordon for turning me on to this band.
* The 35 songs from The Very Best Of by Hoosier Hot Shots that I didn’t get last month. (This only cost me five credits though because the eMusic price was 40 tracks for 12 credits and I downloaded seven tracks last month. What a deal!)
