Brunswick, 1969. Near Mint- (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents!

New AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
