Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A seminal debut set from Edip Akbanyram – a 70s Turkish singer whose music is every bit as compelling as arabesk rock by Baris Manco or Erkin Koray!

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall!

Comet (France), 2012. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet little single – not just for the cool 10" format, but for the great grooves within!

Tony Allen & Afrika 70Jealousy ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s!

Insanely fantastic work from the mighty Antibalas Orchestra!

Supposedly, this is one of the many incarnations of the group that's better known under the names Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and Ice.
