A german b-movie action & crime soundtrack “Das Mädchen von Hongkong” / “The Girl from Hongkong” from 1973, that was never released before and shot in HongKong with an international flair and with the very famous german actor and show-man Joachim “Blacky” Fuchsberger.

The music of this soundtrack was written by Gerhard Narholz and recorded under different pseudonyms and with different groups.
Gerhard Narholz is a very famous library composer, musician and owner of the music-archive Sonoton.

The music is between typical library crime music & gangster action cinematic tunes, with very funky grooves, wah wah guitars, hamond organ riffs, fat horn stabs and fuzzy guitars and all that elements & ingredients that a gangster movie needs!

This album is mastered by Sonoton studio-engineer legend Gerhart Frei!

As a special we have 7 digital BONUS tracks in different versions or songs that will not be featured on the vinyl.

This album was never supposed to be released back in the days and the Black Pearl crew is very proud to present this unknown soundtrack pearl for the first time to music-lovers & record collectors worldwide !!!

 


ABAHAMBI – Freeway

Posted by roskow On Juli - 1 - 2013

Abahambi-front-300


A killer South African Jazz Funk album from Johannesburg, totally undiscovered and recorded in 1975.  The project Abahambi is a never mentioned band with the very famous bass-player Sipho Gumede, as the band leader.
Unfortunately no more recording sessions of this particular formation are known. Sipho’s reputation grew higher in the early 80s, while he produced the african Combo „Sakhile“.
Actually this is a lost & non-existing album and the Black Pearl Crew is very proud to present this forgotten black afro pearl to the Afro Funk Community once again.

This vinyl re-issue is limitted to 500 copies !!!


GRUPO LOS YOYI

Posted by roskow On Juni - 17 - 2012

Yoyi-front-300


One of the rarest Afro-Cuban, Funk, Jazz, Fusion and Proto Disko record of the cuban Egrem archive. The most sought album, after melting down most of the copies during the worldwide oil-crises in the 70ies.

Definitely a true collector´s item of Psych Cuban Funk.

Our limited 500 pieces vinyl reissue of the Los Yoyi – album is sold out. Hopefully you can call one copy your own, because this item is as the original pressing on Areito Records still very hard to find & dig.

Thanks to all of you which supported us, the cuban funk music and the vinyl market.  The album is still digitally available at our shop !!!
