Basically a (good) Spanish pop music album

Guillermo PORTABALES .... Cuba
Nostalgia Guajira 2'46
(El Carretero) [World Circuit]
This is a beautiful album of fine stereo recordings from the latter part of the 42 year musical career of this extraordinary singer and guitarist, a life cut short by a car in 1970.

Archie ROACH .... Australia
Hold on tight 4'22
(Looking for Butterboy) [Aurora / Mushroom]
When I first heard this fine song from one of our great indigenous performers, and even before I started ferreting around inside the sleeve notes of various Daniel Lanois CDs, I knew there had to be a production connection. The name Malcolm BURN turns up again and again. As good as Lanois is as a producer, I feel I've cheated Mr. Burn of some credit, now that his influence and ideas with recording are evident once separated from the distictive Lanois sound.

(Yelayo) [Sterns Africa]
Yelayo is the new album from SECK, and its just delightful, certainly much more focussed overall than the N'Der Fouta Tooro sessions.

SHAKTI .... India / USA
What Need Have I For This, What Need Have I For That, I Am Dancing At The Feet Of My Lord, All Is Bliss, All Is Bliss 28'25
(Shakti with John McLaughlin) [Columbia / Sony]
From 1975, one of those rare live recordings that linger in the mind. I played this tonight for two reasons; Zakir Hussain will be performing in Melbourne 2 weeks from today, and people from the Indian Subcontinent are celebrating 50 years of freedom from the British Empire. This is appropriately joyous music.

Simon SHAHEEN .... Middle East / USA

The grim news this weekend is that Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has died of a heart attack in a London hospital at the age of 49. This truly great performer will be missed the world over. I'm glad that I had chance to meet him briefly, and even more, to be transported by his Party in performance on several occasions.
