Hugh Masekela Masekela '66-'76 7LP Box Set (Vinyl)
& lt;font color= & quot;#FF0000 & quot; & gt; & lt;b & gt;Limited Edition of Only 1000 Copies! 7 Albums, 47 Tracks, 1 Vinyl LP Box Set! & lt;/b & gt; & lt;/font & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; One of the world’s finest and most distinctive horn players, a musical celebrity who built up a dedicated global following thanks to his unique blend of jazz and South African styles. It may seem extraordinary that these tracks have been allowed to disappear, but this remarkable 7 vinyl set helps to put that right. Compiled by Hugh and his friend and producer Stewart Levine many of these tracks have been unavailable on vinyl for decades. & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt; & quot;When Hugh Masekela died..., he was rightly revered as one of Africa’s finest musicians, a trumpeter and flugelhorn player, singer and songwriter who blended jazz with South African styles, and used his music to battle apartheid. & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & quot;His early career was not easy, and this remarkable 47-track retrospective is taken from 11 varied and experimental albums, many of which were never released in the UK. It’s crammed with great music that was not commercially successful, either because it was too angry or simply too far ahead of its time. & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & quot;The 1960s and 70s were a period of constant change for Masekela. Exiled from South Africa, he moved to the US, where he notched up a massive hit, the delightful instrumental Grazing in the Grass (which is included here). But his involvement with the black power and anti-Vietnam war movements, and new tracks such as Mace and Grenades, and Gold, upset his record company and conservative American audiences. His career began to suffer, but he continued to record such exquisite tracks as Minawa (on which he was joined by pianist Larry Willis and saxophonist Dudu Pukwana) before heading off to west Africa, where he recorded with the Ghanaian band Hedzoleh Soundz. The exuberant 1973 set Introducing Hedzoleh Soundz is included in full, as is the follow-up album, I Am Not Afraid, in which Masekela was joined by Hedzoleh along with pianist Joe Sample and drummer Stix Hooper from the Crusaders. A classic collaboration between African and American artists, it includes the original versions of Stimela and Masekela’s tribute to Dizzy Gillespie, Night in Tunisia. It’s extraordinary that so much great music has been unavailable for so long. & quot; & lt;/b & gt; - Robin Denselow, & lt;i & gt; theguardian.com & lt;/i & gt;, April 19, 2018 & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt;Features: & lt;/b & gt; & lt;br & gt; & amp;bull; Limited Edition - 1000 Copies & lt;br & gt; & amp;bull; 7LP Box Set & lt;br & gt; & amp;bull; Box Dimensions: 12 1/2 & quot; x 12 1/2 & quot; x 1 1/2 & quot; & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt;Selections: & lt;br & gt; LP1 A: & lt;br & gt; & lt;/b & gt; 1.
