Pedro Laza y su Pelayeros - Navidad Negra (MONO version)

Buddy Ace - Screaming Please

Limited to 500 copies! No repress! Transparent green vinyl! Hype sticker on front!
This is the 2nd volume in the new Voodoo Mambosis And Other Tropical Diseases series on Stag-O-Lee.
Four volumes are planned. The original records come from the record box of our esteemed friend Duke Jens-O-Matic, who has been a graphic designer, internationally acclaimed DJ, collector and hunter for decades.
Jens-O-Matic was there when we first breathed life into Stag-O-Lee and he delivered four volumes of the wonderful Jim Jam Gems 10” series. Each stylistically self-contained. He is currently working on further Jim Jam Gems volumes, but is struggling with the liner notes because “one has an educational mission!”.
Now to the record at hand:
What does a friend of the obscure 7″es do when he already has everything in the field of Rhythm & Blues etc.? He is looking for other fields of activity. Different countries, different music, different influences. So does our Jens-O-Matic. He made a little trip around the world here, let his new love of cumbia flow in, mixed in a pinch of voodoo, reactivated some old blues heroes, plus some exotica – it never hurts.
The great art is to combine these on paper disparate elements in such a way that something unique and consistently exciting is created. Voodoo Mambosis And Other Tropical Diseases is the best example of this!
The cover, also designed by Jens-O-Matic, is a homage to the groundbreaking ’84 compilation Rockabilly Psychosis and the Garage Disease!
