Kabana/Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
They're not kidding with the name of this group – because the set's a masterpiece of 70s Afro Funk – totally great all the way through!

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard in your life – an assortment of mid 70s tunes from Mahmoud Ahmed, the second grooviest Ethiopian artist, next to Mulatu!

Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $25.99
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! Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! Fela and his group (Afrika 70) are still working with Tony here, and Fela lays down some tenor and piano solos – but make no mistake, it's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Allen with Afrobeat 2000NEPA – Never Expect Power Always ... LP
Celluloid/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AlpayYekte ... LP
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!

Groovy Eastern sounds from John Berberian – a musician we know from more rockish projects, but who steps out here on a relatively traditional set of tunes!

Mississippi/Little Axe/Domino Sound, 1976. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the rarer Ethiopian recordings we've heard from the 70s – and one of the most compelling, too!
