Andy's (Cameroon), Early 80s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Afro-soul from Tala – a set that has a nice range of modes, all of them pretty groovy! The title track is a stunning slow soul number – definitely inspired by James Brown's "It's A Man's World" – but some other tracks sparkle with a bit more boogie too – a key ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bibi Tanga Et Le Professeur InlassableEn Slip Chaussettes (vocal, dub) ... 7-inch
L'inlassable Disque (France), 2008. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
A very cool little track – one that's got an Afro Funk vibe, but at a pace that's much slower and moodier than usual! The beats have a nicely space feel, and they're interwoven with these little keyboard bursts that sound very cool and trippy – really keeping the right pace to move ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ebo Taylor at his finest – stepping out here in a wicked set of work from the 70s – filled with upbeat rhythms, sweet instrumental touches, and a heck of a lot of soul!

Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful work from Ti Paris – a Haitian guitarist who works here in a relatively stripped-down setting – usually just his voice and acoustic guitar, light percussion, and occasional chorus vocals!

Guitars from the desert by Tinariwen – a group with Malian roots, and a sound that's all their own! The album's got production that's tighter than some of their previous efforts, but a feel that's far from slick – just a haunting, hypnotic blend of the band's many guitars – built ... read more CD

World Village/Modern Classics, 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
Key musical figures in the Touareg independence movement – and a very hip group of nomads working with a lot of guitars!

Pretty great work from Toure Kunda – one of the best of the New Africa acts to record for Celluloid during the 80s!
