In 1996, the Parallel World label released the LP "Cambodian Rocks", a collection of Cambodian psych and garage music from the 60s and early 70s (probably), compiled by an American tourist named Paul Wheeler from some cassettes he bought in Phnom Penh. No information on the songs was provided at all, no artist names, no song titles, and no recording dates. Four years later, Parallel World reissued this compilation on CD with a few extra tracks, but still without any identifying information. Unfortunately, it is more than likely that many of the featured musicians, showing a definite Western influence in their music, were murdered by the Khmer Rouge regime which took over power in 1975. Certainly none of them ever received any money from the sales of this compilation. However, the music is wonderful, and here it is for your enjoyment.
In this special compilation, you'll find a variety of Nigerian Sounds from the late 50's to the 80's and showcases some of the finest artists including Tony Allen, Orlando Julius and of course Fela Kuti. Mixing jazz, soul, rock, psychedelia and more with traditional African sounds and rhythms, the music that emanates from this fine collection is a testament to the rich, modern musical history of Nigeria. All of these songs come from current or upcoming releases on Vampi-Soul's huge West African Re-issue project but this CD, in itself, is a great introduction to the music that has come to be termed "Afrobeat". The full list of artists include Bola Johnson, Fela-Ransome Kuti, Opotopo, Tony Allen with Africa 70, Olando Julius & Afrosounders, Godwin Omobuwa, Fred Fisher Atolobor.
The music on this album contains original Jamaican funk and soul mainly released on 45s released in the years 1972-78. These cross-cultural musical gems exist on account of the hidden triangle of communication between 3 countries: America, Jamaica and Britain. The first link is the influence of American music on that of Jamaica from the late-1950s onwards; the second is the way in which, from the 1960s onwards, the new emerging market for Jamaican music in the UK influenced the styles of reggae coming out of Kingston. As a phase in the history of black American music, funk and soul spans from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s (roughly between rhythm and blues and disco); but throughout the world, funk and soul was also absorbed into the musical melting pot of many different countries: from the afro-beat of Fela Kuti, the boogaloo of Tito Puente to the diverse sounds emanating from Kingston in the late-1960s and early-1970s. The connection between funk, soul and reggae is one of the strongest, all three containing a certain rawness and concentration on rhythm. Everyone knows the influence of rhythm and blues on ska and of soul music on rocksteady - both fostered by the powerful US radio stations in New York, Miami and New Orleans beaming the music across the Atlantic. But funk’s influence is more pervasive; the syncopation of funk sits nicely over the off-beat of reggae, making the former an ingredient found in many of the latter’s stylistic turns from the late 1960s onwards; roots, steppers, rocksteady, dub can all be as funky as the more obvious versioning of James Brown, Gamble and Huff, Motown, The Meters, etc. On June 22, 1948 the SS Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury docks bringing the first wave of post-war immigrant Caribbeans to Britain. Twenty tears on and thriving Jamaican communities in places such as Brixton, Bristol and Birmingham meant that Kingston record producers were now able to export their sounds to this new market; and a network of labels, distributors, promoters enabled Jamaican records to achieve success for the first time outside of their own country. With funk, soul and reggae sounds found at many a local disco in the UK, an obvious cross-pollinisation took place, with Jamaican producers and artists always quick off the mark with new trends. Here you will find heavyweight versions of funk and soul tunes by the likes of Betty Wright, The JBs, Bill Withers, Earth, Wind and Fire alongside original material from The Heptones, Cedric Brooks, Lee Perry and other greats of the Kingston musical scene in the early 1970s.
The Funky 16 Corners is a compilation of funk songs and instrumentals by little-known performers from the late 1960s to the mid 1970s. The album, released on

Star Time is a 1991 71-track, 4-CD box set by James Brown. Its contents span most of the length of his career up to the time of its release, starting in 1956 with his first hit record, "Please, Please, Please", and ending with "Unity, Pt. 1", his 1984 collaboration with Afrika Bambaataa. It includes a few previously unreleased tracks.
The box set's title comes from the question Brown's announcer would traditionally ask audiences at the start of Brown's concerts: "Are you ready for star time?"
Star Time's liner notes, written by Cliff White, Harry Weinger, Nelson George, Alan M. Leeds and Brown himself, won a 1991 Grammy Award for Best Album Notes. The notes also include album and singles discographies and a one-page comic by Mary Fleener, a visual interpretation of the song "I Got You (I Feel Good)."
In 2003, the album was ranked number 79 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
CSN is a box set released in 1991 by Crosby, Stills and Nash. It features material from their albums as a group in addition to selections from their various solo and duet albums. It also features many outtakes, including from sessions that did not result in an album by the group. Highlights include a cover of The Beatles' "Blackbird" and the full length take of "Almost Cut My Hair."

Jefferson Airplane was an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1965. A pioneer of the psychedelic rock movement, Jefferson Airplane was the first band from the San Francisco scene to achieve mainstream commercial and critical success.
Throughout the late 1960s Jefferson Airplane was one of the most sought-after and highly-paid concert acts in the world. Their recordings were internationally successful and sold in great quantities, and they scored two US Top 10 hit singles and a string of Top 20 albums. Their 1967 record Surrealistic Pillow is still widely regarded as one of the key recordings of the so-called Summer of Love period, and brought the group international recognition (as well as two chart hits: "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit").
Successor bands to Jefferson Airplane include Jefferson Starship and Starship while spinoffs include Hot Tuna and KBC Band. Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.....
Santana is a band consisting of a flexible number of musicians accompanying Carlos Santana since the late 1960s. The range of these artists has varied greatly. Just like Santana himself, the band is known for helping make Latin rock famous in the rest of the world.
