Editorial Reviews

By the mid 1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times: self-imposed, single party rule; a decline in prices for the country's largest natural resource, copper; conflict in other countries on Zambia's borders. This is the environment in which the Zamrock scene that flourished throughout that decade emerged. As we showed in this label's previous investigation into the genre (Rikki Ililonga and Musi-O-Tunya s Dark Sunrise NA 5067) fuzz guitars were commonplace, driving rhythms as influenced by James Brown's funk as Jimi Hendrix's rock predominated, musical themes were often bleak and bands largely sang in the country s constitutional language, English. Although WITCH is the best known Zamrock ensemble and although they succeeded in releasing five albums in Zamrock's golden years they never made an impact on the global scale in, say, the way afro-beat maestro Fela Kuti did. Travel to and within Zambia is expensive, and the markers for the Zamrock scene are now few. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers survived the AIDS epidemic that decimated this country. WITCH's musical arc is contained to a five year span: The band's first two, self-produced albums - released in unison with the birth of the commercial Zambian recording industry are exuberant experiments in garage rock, and are as influenced by the Rolling Stones as they are James Brown; their third album, Lazy Bones!!, is the band s masterpiece a dark, brooding psychedelic opus that makes equal use of wah-wah and fuzz guitars, that relies as heavily on the stomping feel of hard rock as it does the syncopation of funk; the band's last two albums recorded after the band toured with Osibisa make use of traditional Zambian rhythms and folk melodies and are the most "afro-rock" of WITCH's oeuvre. We ve grouped together WITCH's albums stylistically. Thus, the band's first two, self-produced albums appear on Disc One; Lazy Bones!! and its related 7" single tracks appear on Disc Two, Lukombo Vibes and its 7" single tracks appear on Disc Three and Including Janet (Hit Single) appears on Disc Four.

I ordered this box set after being given the assignment of interviewing the band's songwriter/lead vocalist Emmanuel Kangwa "Jagari" Chanda. I was sent a 2 hour lecture Jagari had given in Spain and links to a handful of tracks by WITCH. Little did I know that I was about to discover one of the most original and important bands of the 1970s, from Zambia of all places. As an American I thought I had a pretty good handle on the psychedelic music of the 60s and 70s. What a shock to discover that there was such incredibly wonderful original and important music recorded 40 years ago that I had no idea existed. The 4 cds here contain all the LPs and 45s released by Jagari and WITCH during their short tenure 1972-1977. Sung in English and played with musical prowess equal to any psychedelic band of the era, this box set is more than a newly discovered gem to me. It is a window into a musical movement that came and went almost totally unnoticed by those outside the band's native land. This box set is an incredibly important document. I have just now ordered a second copy in the hopes that at least some of my money finds its way into the hands of Jagari, the soul survivor of the original band, at least to the best of my knowledge. There are so many highlights to be found here it is almost pointless to identify any, but "Lazy Bones" the title track from the band's 3rd LP is one to be certain. Jagari himself identified "Motherless Child" and "Strange Dream" as especially meaningful, the latter being Jagari's musical tribute to his girlfriend who drowned, first in his recurring dream and then in real life. If you are a fan of garage/psych rock of the late 60s/early 70s this is beyond an absolute must. I have not stopped playing it since it arrived earlier today.Read more ›
