Mugglestone Hi-Fi- FREE TIME

Okay, this one is a bit of a stretch, but I don't dare challenge what the record gods allow to cross my path.  So if you have bigger ears than balls, this one might get it right.  I think of this mix as the quietly wild and often forgotten middle daughter of a family with 3 precocious but well-intentioned girls.  (But that still might not justify 2 Kraftwerk songs on 1 mix--when you get there, you'll understand)

Track Listing::>

01. Afrika Bambaata/ James Brown- Unity Pt. 2
02. Kraftwerk- Trans Europa Express
03. Perez Prado- St. Louis Blues Mambo
04. Metric Jazz National- Odero Koduko
05. Cabaret Voltaire- Jazz The Glass
06. Gudrun Gut- Move Me
07. Jean Claude Vannier- Evelyne
08. Hugues Aufray- La Fille du Nord
09. Bob Dylan- Bye and Bye
10. Jad Fair- Cape Fear
11. Art Bears- Rats and Monkeys
12. Bobby Conn- Me Most of All

Oum Kalsoum is no doubt the Queen of Egyptian singers and changed the face of Arabic culture and politics.  I cannot begin to describe the power, elegance and beauty with which she brings to life the famous poetry of the Arabic canon.  To get an idea of her prowess and majesty here are a couple of videos::>

I finally found my first and favorite piece of hers on double 7", Beid Annak, though not in the version I recognize.  At the Comptoir Marocain de Distribution de Disques they had many of her discs, and I bought as many as I could.  Included here is::>

Beid Annak Pts. 1-4
Anta El Hob Pts. 1-4
Touf Ou Chouf Pts. 1-2

Here is the .zip


Although from Lebanon, Sabah made her mark in Egypt as a singer and actress.  Her career has spanned 5 decades and she has been the subject of several scandals due to her many marriages and possible affairs.  Many consider her to be the Nancy Sinatra of the Arab world due to her bubbly demeanor yet tremendous melancholy, and of course the iconic blonde hair.  Included here are 2 records::>

Habibat Oummaha Pts. 1-2
Hiloua Ou Taiba Pts. 1-2
Demmou Khafif Pts. 1-2
Bini Ou Binek Thar Pts. 1-2

Fairouz, the "Jewel of Lebanon", made a splash on the international stage and in the 70's was a household name for many Arab-Americans and Europeans.  Her success was a bit stinted by the Lebanese Civil War, but at age 78 she still continues to perform.  Unfortunately, I was unable to get more than 1 record, which I have included here: "Mahrajane El Kamh"/"Saoufa Ahya".

Here is the .zip


With a little help from fellow crate diggers and wax poets I obtained some amazing artifacts while cruising around Casablanca.  The very famous Disques Gam and Le Comptoir Marocain de Distribution de Disques provided me with some truly unforgettable tracks that speak to the diversity of Moroccan music and culture.  From the hauntingly psychedelic organ of Abdou El Omari to the Berber Rwais music (see the extended listening for more) to the almost 7 minute long twist song of Abdelwahab Doukkali and the "Moroccan Rolling Stones" Jil Jilali, this mix is a musical journey that will leave you wanting more.  So, I have made a massive "Extended Listening" section for people that want to dig a little deeper.  

Track Listing::>

01. Abdou El Omari- Fatine
02. Jil Jilala- Rifia
03. Hawa Hadaoua- Yami Yami
04. Abdelhadi Belkyat- El Kamr El Ahmar Pt. 1
05. Abdelwahab Doukkali- Twist Iway T'koussi Chaarek Twist
06. Hamid Zahir- Bara
07. Nass El Ghiwane- Mezzine M'dihek
08. Cheikh Rouicha Mohamed- Taazhat Ghouri
09. Unknown- Disques Gam 103
10. Haj M. B. Yahia Outznaght- Al Mahchar
11. Abdou El Omari- Layali Saif
12. Unknown- Izenkade
13. Unknown- Awad Aït Zaltane Pt. 2
14. Jil Jilala- Al Kouds

I picked up a lot of records that from what I can determine is called Rwais music, mainly played on the Rebab (the fiddle seen above).  Here is a great article explaining the significance of this genre.  I tried to name the tracks as accurately as possible but most of the records are exclusively in Arabic.  

Track Listing::>

01. R. H. Elmahdi Ben M'Bark- Part 1
02. R. H. Elmahdi Ben M'Bark- Part 2
03. R. Haj Omar Wahrouch- Part 1
04. R. Haj Omar Wahrouch- Part 2
05. Rais Hmad Amentag- Imik Aiga Dhab Pt 1
06. Rais Hmad Amentag- Imik Aiga Dhab Pt 2
07. Rais Md Damsiri- Assif Nait Hadi
08. Rais Md Damsiri- Ikalm Dalkoursi
09. Rais Mohamed Baamrani- Roihait Azine Anmoune
10. Rais Mohamed Baamrani- Zaid Aouddi Chour

ABDELHADI BELKYAT- El Kamar El Ahmar Pts. 1-4

Abdelhadi Belkyat is a Moroccan singer and actor.  I included part 1 of this 2-record set in the Moroccan Tourism Guide, but thought all of it is amazing and worth uploading.  The lush orchestration seems very influenced by the Egyptian Sono Cairo, but his voice is unique and unforgettable.  

Here is the .zip


I included the first record (Fatine/Layali Saif) on the Tourism Guide, but the second record is just as striking.  His psychedelic organ boogaloo sound cannot really be compared with anything I have heard before.  Both records are on Disques Gam.  A lot of people have posted a track of his hear and thar, but I thought it nice to give a neat little .zip of all 4 tracks I could find...

Mugglestone Hi-Fi IL JAZZ

I am a jazz nerd, so I went a little overboard on this one and even included all of the personnel and recording dates for each track, because this mix is somehow a tribute to the sidemen.  This is not my comment on which movements in jazz were more valuable than others (for example there is no Louis Armstrong on here, and he was my hero since I was a tee baller), nor is it a beginner's guide, but if you are one of those "haters", this is yr chance to come over to the dark side.

Mugglestone Hi-Fi LEASE ON LIFE MIX

A while back a friend let me borrow her copy of Barbara's first LP, she is from Nantes, and told me the heart-wrenching story of the song (see track 8).  I fell in love immediately with her honest and powerful voice, and listened to the record on repeat for months.  When at Record Palace in Amsterdam I finally found the single, as well as the North African records on the mix and the Leonard Cohen, which I never believed to be on single, but thanks to the Altman movie "McCabe & Mrs. Miller", CBS Holland decided to make a French version of the single (?).  The rest...well I could go on, but you better just get into it--though I have to say thanks to Light In The Attic for all of the amazing Lee Hazlewood reissues!

When the time comes, don't be afraid, to let go, or hold on, let your intention become intuition and yr aspiration take the form of patience.  This will not be easy, nor should it be, but the pain of displacement can never be as bitter as the pain of separation.  The final stage comes in waves, the pulsing titration, may it carry you forth from yr earthly grave.

mugglestone hi-fi 2 KOOL 4 SKOOL

The sad thing here is that this is what I thought was 2 kool when I was a lost (read left alone watching Wings reruns) puppy with long hair scraggling out of a dirty quilted African skull cap extolling the virtues of Ween Zappa and Free Jazz while weeping over the death of Jerry Garcia.  Needless to say, these were desperate and confusing times.  Luckily, I had a couple hip friends and cousin to hold my hand through this petulant time lapsed reason.

Jojk is a Lappish (Sami) vocal style mainly associated with the Nåid, or local magicians/shamans.  They used these chants to become connected with nature and go into ecstasy or trance.  During the Christianization of the Far North, these Shamans and heathen practitioners were often put to violent deaths, and the use of the drum has since been forbidden.  But of course the Jojk lives on.  This rare artifact from the Jokkmokks Museum in Sweden from 1966, gives an amazing glimpse into the different styles and the individual meanings of the songs.

Here is a link to a .pdf of the liner notes included with the record.  It gives bios of the singers, as well as translations of the texts.

Mugglestone Hi-Fi BACK 2 SCHOOL VOL. 2: KAYO MOODS

I recently was at this record store in Monterey, CA, where the guy had a slew of overpriced 70's/80's singles that I spent an hour hunched on the floor picking through.  Just to give you an idea, he had a broken Fraggle Rock theme song picture sleeve that he was selling for 6 bucks, I told him the record was broken and he said it was 6 bucks "just for the sleeve".  As I was leaving with nothing for my labor, he dismissively pointed to the corner under the overstock and said I had missed a box--but its all crap, so a quarter each or 5 for a buck.  Here I found about 20 amazing Japanese records from the 50's and 60's, all exclusively in Japanese and most without a sleeve (here I also found another copy of the Fraggle Rock record, in M- condition but without the sleeve).

I can't find out much about this beautiful genre of post-war jazzy/pop songs except a wiki page with some information about a genre that seems to fit called Kayokyoku.  It gives a little insight into the genre that would later become the basic for Japanese Mod/Go-Go records (a la the Spiders) and even J-Pop.  I also found some forums for what they are calling "J-Pop Oldies" or Enka music, but I still am having a hard time getting the artists or titles for the songs.  Most of the records are on King or Columbia, so mostly all I have are the record numbers. Nonetheless, I decided to put it up here for you, with the hopes that maybe someone can help me shed some light on this beautiful piece of history.

So, get some shitty supermarket sake, heat it up in the microwave, and ENJOY!

(Due to the lack of info there is no real tracklisting, but all the record label info/titles are in the name of the song)

You don't have to tell me kids, the mid-summer boredom has now turned into an embittered self-inflicted nostalgia.  But to brighten the burden and smear on the cathedral windows or stick under the table at yr favorite pizza parlor, hear are some "dusted to perfection" Continental Classix.  For you under-priviledged, this can be yr semester abroad, you can be spit on in any language.  For you underwhelmed and achieved, bolster your e-culture rating with some not-so-other-worldly tunes, we've been to Africa and back, forgery is now the greatest flattery, and now more authentic than ever!

This is the first EP from Swiss German singer/songwriter Mani Matter, from 1966.  As heard in "Ds Lied Vo De Bahnhof" (track 18 on the Back to School vol. 1 mix), his ironic delivery of the Bern dialect and minimalist folk style make this a perfect way to impress yr new know-it-all girlfriend.

Hank Williams as LUKE THE DRIFTER

The other day my brother was telling me that I "have always been a big fan of this moralistic crap", and for some reason he sited my recent binge on the complete Luke the Drifter single collection. I have to admit, a gasp of delight welled up in my heart as I uncovered these beautiful relics, all in their original sleeves. The original box-set (pictured above) only had 4 records, but I found 2 more! For fans of "Hank", this stuff is a bit different: a lot of ponderous talking and gospel themes (mainly death). But for me it completes the picture of a man struggling to find self and truth in this often cruel world.

Track Listing ::>

01. Beyond the Sunset
02. I've Been Down That Road Before
03. Be Careful of the Stones You Throw
04. The Funeral
05. I Dreamed About Mama Last Night
06. Help Me Understand
07. Just Waitin'

09. No, No, Joe
10. Everything's Okay
11. Why Don't You Make Up Your Mind
12. Too Many Parties Too Many Pals

This compilation is almost as bizarre as the misleading liner notes. Some of these excerpts/edits are shamefully short (sorry Steve Reich and Lasry-Baschet), but where else are you going to get Harry Partch or Conlon Nancarrow on 7"? Think of it as an educational tool. Or, for you more cynical and privileged: simply an artifact.

Here I have transcribed the amazing liner notes::>

Over Thirty? Stuck in the same musical bag for too long and getting a little twitchy? Have you run through the three Bs and back to Monteverdi and forward to Mahler and Ives? Are you bored with Perry Como but not desperate enough to want to embrace "The Stones" or Janis Joplin? Peace.
Under thirty? Are you getting bored occasionally with Jimi Hendrix, maybe a little put off by Jim Morrison? Jaws tired of "bubble gum music"? Want to broaden your horizons without getting trapped in that square symphony and opera stuff?
Good news! There's an area of new music growing that you can listen to without your friends accusing you of selling out to the other side. We don't know what to call it yet and we probably won't until strict "pop" and "classical" and "jazz" categories are ground into dust by the electronic age. But just because we don't have a name for it is no reason you can't go ahead and enjoy it.
Its borders are hazy and loose. Some of it is being written now by people like Terry Riley and Mort Subotnick and Luciano Berio. Some of it a decade or two old, is just now being discovered: like Blood, Sweat, and Tears uncovering Erik Satie or kids grooving to the sound of Harry Partch or Varèse.
So, if you've got the musical "blahs," listen. There's enough on this record to keep your adrenalin pumping through 1970. Come on, get with it!

-John McClure
Director of Masterworks

Mugglestone Hi-Fi HELP WANTED

Last night I watched a man die on the u-bahn. We all sat there waiting, and then stood there watching. It was -9 degrees on the platform and they wouldn't let us leave at first. People half-hiddenly smoked cigarettes, planning their personal retreat. I was hungry and didn't want a drink. No one was there. Something about a man carrying the jaw bone of his father wrapped in a blanket tied across his back.

CAN- Halleluwah vs. DSCHINGHIS KAHN- Dschinghis Kahn

I haven't been posting many individual singles as of late, but I just felt the need to demonstrate how much West Germany in the 70's was a hell of a drug...

This Can single I have been hoisting high above my head since I found it at the Platten Pedro record store in Berlin (prices are high, but plenty o' raritease). Not much needs to be said here about "Halleluwah" except that once again any Can purists will be disappointed by the truncation of the edit (not to mention the mix), but goddamnit! The fact that this exists makes me happy to be alive! "Turtles Have Short Legs", a non-album track is also quite amazing, though I agree it would stick out on Tago Mago. Here is a good review from Head Heritage.

Can- "Halleluwah"

Can- "Turtles Have Short Legs"

Then, well there is Dschinghis Khan.

It doesn't get better than this video from the Eurovision Contest (4th place!!!) in 1979::>

Could have said it better myself. Their song "Moskau" was even an international hit, but believe me neither song hits no matter how ironically themed the night is. Better play it for disapproving friends while dancing wildly in yr living room late one night after the bars close.

Dschinghis Khan- "Dschinghis Khan"

Bounty! And by bounty I am in a very vague way talking about a young child's dream of becoming something of a brilliant star. A star so bright that it blinds most, and gives others intense headaches. Featured here is my very first 7" single, originally given to me by Little A during lunch in high school. It was subsequently stolen and sold, and though I have looked diligently in the D section of every hip record store I encounter, alas, I could only find it on ebay. This then sparked a stream of seamingly unnecessary compulsive shopping on and off line, whereby I could acquire fancier (like this bizarre french Fela edit--I know some records should not be put onto single, but you can't blame me for coveting them, right?) and more "post punky" shuck an groove records to sparkle away the hours of DJ-dom. I never knew it was so easy. I dreamed of a world where I could own Nervous Norvus' "The Fang", and now that it's here next to me as I write this endless tome of an introduction, I would like to give thanks and praises to the record gods who have been shining on little ol' me as of late.

Track Listing::>

01. Dub Narcotic Sound System- Fuck Shit Up
02. Miles Davis- Vote for Miles Pt. 2
03. The Slits- In the Beginning There Was Rhythm

This last mix is probably my fav of the bunch because it played itself.

MUGGLESTONE HI-FI Sum of 11 vol. 2

This mix started as a tribute to all the songs that are a bit too "anthemic" for their own good, even though when taken in doses can make or break a nostalgia fueled dance party. But it turned out to be a collection of cool dad i-pod playlist material. I tried to sneak some ladies up in here to provide a little balance, but for the most part you can tailgate this one anywhere.

MUGGLESTONE HI-FI Sum of 11 vol. 1

When in doubt (and I mean self-doubt), overcompensate. That's what the country preacher has to say about it. So here you get not 1, not 2, but rather 3 new mixes to mow the lawn to. For this first volume I didn't really want to break any rules of the game for the summer of 2011, just showcase some of the finest southern funk and proto-rock classics. Doesn't that sound nice? There are plenty of classix as well as the elusive rare groove or two to keep the pop police at bay, and of course some nice whitey go black blues rock that we've grown to love.

Track Listing::>

01. The Meters- Hand Clapping Song
02. Sandy Nelson- Drum Stomp
03. Jo Ann & Troy- Who Do You Love?

I just came back from Istanbul with a slew of amazing Turkish prog/psych records to find a small package of amazing skweee records from dødpop in Norway. I knew it would be dicey and a bit presumptuous to make a mix using only those, so I added a few other classics to help pave the way for this mixx.

Recent travel to the UK brought some memorable round pieces of plastic into my life. SPOILER ALERT::> Not everything is British. The name and the little picture were just too tempting. There are some proper classics from quite a few hipster genres on here, but also some "challenging" stuff that might be a bit too much for yr super cool art-collector mom. But yr older cousin that never quite made it out of the minimum wage turned shift manager job at the grocery store will be like "those songs were already retro like 15 years ago" and then go off about these fucking kids who still think J.G. Ballard is like the greatest new thing. He will then start bitching about how William Gibson's new books are even better than the old ones but that no one cares anymore. And then he will wipe his sweaty hands on the back of his jeans (faded and frayed, but no proper holes), chew on the corner of his moustache and continue to fret about his young girlfriend/co-worker that may or may not be pregnant.

Track Listing::>

01. Bauhaus- Third Uncle

You guessed it! Filler songs are generally my favorite because they are dependable, make everyone happy, and take the pressure off. Too much killer can kill. Cuz as we all know, there is such a too much of a good thing. And yes, often hits make perfect filler.

01. Al Green- Tired of Bering Alone
02. Art & Dotty Todd- Chanson D'Amour

What can I say without sounding too weird. I started out wanting to make a kind of NDW mix with a smattering of 60's/70's classic rock/disco jams and some tasteful ballads, but then I kept adding these world music tracks that I love and can never DJ or fit into some of the more straight ahead mixes (esp these amazing Burmese and Bengali songs) and then of course some other little muffins. The track listing looks like another one of these "who the fuck is this guy, maybe he's trying a little bit too hard," but after listening to it yull find the songs create the perfect background for you to discuss politicized photography movements of the mid-70's or some article you read in the most recent issue of Cabinet.
