MebusasBlood Brothers ... CD
Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some ... read more CD

Tummy Touch/Soundway (UK), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
Seminal Afro Funk from Monomono – a killer combo from singer/percussionist Joni Haastrup, with a groove that's right up there with the best acts on the Lagos scene of the 70s!
