Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed!

New Baris MancoSakla Samani Gelir Zamani (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Fantastic funk from Baris Manco – a set of freaky Turkish tunes that step out with an amazing feel right from the start! There's plenty of Arabesk elements in the instrumentation – as you'd hear from his contemporaries on the scene – but there's also some western elements too, as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Guerssen (Spain), 1979. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
An overlooked late 70s album from the great Baris Manco – one that has the Turkish experimentalist unlocking even more strange corners of his music – finding a new way to combine eastern and western elements in his sound!

Soulful sounds from 70s Chile – and a record that easily rivals some of the best acoustic work from the post-Tropicalia generation in Brazil! Manduka's got a heady sound that's very much in keeping with his image on the cover – a freer sort of approach to the music than the decade ... read more CD

A non-stop funky party from CK Mann – and a set that definitely lives up to its title!

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.

Wicked work from Jimmy Mawi – one of the coolest cats to work on the Kenyan scene of the 70s!
