Pat Thomas and Marijata: I Need More

I was bidding on this LP on eBay the other night, and lost (tho' I was winning with 4 seconds to go... you know how it is). The record is from Ghana and I feared of never seeing it again. Thank goodness for Frank: A German DJ who packed up and moved to Africa to be a full-time vinyl archaeologist. Thanks to Frank's great website, I was able safely to obtain the mp3 posted above.

Some good vibration keeps me coming back.

Great track. Love it. Anymore like that?

Hey Jazz Mag,

Well, that's the only clip I have from this LP (like I said, I didn't win the record!). Check Frank's site for more afro-funk; I extracted this mp3 from a whole hour-long mix he's got up there.

love how the guitar solo slowly pans from channel to channel.

Thanks for posting this track - it's sooo beautiful!

Great, Emmett. Shame about the bid falling at the last hurdle, but then we'd possibly never heard of frank or voodoo funk. Ace!

i just discovered voodoo funk a short while ago myself. afrobeat seems to be very in style today. blogs like frank's are incredibly inspiring.

emmett, you don't snipe?

emmett said...

Hey Brendan, no I don't snipe. Not sure what "snipe" is, actually, although I have seen the term here and there. Should I be sniping?

brendan said...

right well some people hate snipers but I feel completely opposite. first off, sniping means to use another website (like auctionsniper or hammersnipe) to automatically bid what you want to pay with 3 seconds left in the auction. this can be frustrating for the people that lose the auctions... i've been there in the past..

but I'd prefer if everybody would snipe, getting rid of angsty bidding wars that artificially escalate the price. it can save you money. i swear by it.

Howdy Emmett, thought you might be interested to know that we just posted a whole bunch of unreissued, uncompiled african disco & funk etc. including Pat Thomas, over in the blog section of our website.
