Lekan Animashaun - Low Profile (Not For The Blacks) WalkTek

March 23, 2018
"Baba Ani’s two songs here were tinkered with over a period of years, but the basic tracks date from the last days of the regime of General Olusegun Obasanjo, around 1979.... By mid-1979, Fela had finally opened his new Afrika Shrine in Ikeja (an outlying suburb of Lagos). Animashaun was appointed bandleader of the new band, which was also named Afrika 70 until 1981 when Fela rechristened it Egypt 80.... Baba Ani’s songs remained unreleased for years. Work on the tracks resumed in Paris in 1986 (in a marathon recording session which followed Fela’s release from an 18-month prison term), but they were again shelved until 1995, when they were finally released on Fela’s Kalakuta Records as Kalakuta 003." - Michael Veal (Honest Jon's website) https://honestjons.com/shop/artist/Tunde_Williams_Lekan_Animashaun/release/Mr._Big_Mouth_Low_Profile_Not_For_The_Blacks

for what it's worth, my text barcode matches this pressing (with different runout etchings) and the store price tag is dated Dec. 21, 2005.

Nolatet - Dogs as reviewed by WalkTek

I mean, it's New Orleans style jazz if your idea of NoLa jazz is Astral Project and Illuminasty Trio ;) Mike Dillon plays (vibes) wonderfully on this album and he is backed by an amazing rhythm section that afford plenty of space. Brian Hass (of JFJO) sounds great on piano.
