New AkidoAkido ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good Gatefold .... $29.99
An obscure Afro Funk combo from the early 70s – produced by Ronnie Lane of The Faces, who may very well have been inspired by Ginger Baker's love of the style! The record's got some pretty heavy guitar work, and there's lots of funky rock running through the grooves – so those African-i ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ashwin BatishSitar Power Vol 1 ... LP
Batish, 1986. Near Mint- .... $9.99
Silly stuff – but it works! Ashwin Batish was born 10 years too late – because if this album was recorded in the 70s, it would have a strong Bollywood groove, with Ashwin's sitar funking over heavy wah-wah guitar. As it is, though, Ashwin recorded this one in 1986 – so the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Quite an interesting album – one that pairs the koto work of Kimio Eto with the flute of Bud Shank. Shank's incredible in this setting – really moving away from most of his jazz-based work, and playing with shades and tones that we've never heard before, a perfect accompaniment to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nicel priced US reissue of this mid 70s classic – and an album that wasn't included in the recent Fela box set!

Electric Cowbell, 2012. Near Mint- .... $9.99
Heady sounds from Karthala 72 – a group with a very vintage sound – one that rings out with plenty of offbeat funky elements, African percussion, and maybe even a sense of bassline borrowed from Colombian music! The group have a wonderful criss-crossing of styles – and this full ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, Late 60s/1971. Very Good Gatefold .... $39.99
Dude! Back before he was found floating face-down in a swimming pool, ex- (or late-) Stones member Brian Jones put together this landmark bit of trippiness for the Rolling Stones label. Although the music is largely ethnographic, the whole thing's got this neo-colonialist hipster edge to it ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
