New 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

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!

Amadou BalakeSenor Eclectico – Burkinabe Dance Music Of The 70s ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy .... $22.99
A definite eclectic groove here – music that has its roots in Mandingo and Dioula rhythms, but also features a fair bit of American funk and soul touches too – sometimes in the heavy grooves on the bottom, sometimes in the rumbling basslines and guitar parts too!

Ashwin BatishSitar Power Vol 1 ... LP
Batish, 1986. Near Mint- .... $6.99
Silly stuff – but it works! Ashwin Batish was born 10 years too late – because if this album was recorded in the 70s, it would have a strong Bollywood groove, with Ashwin's sitar funking over heavy wah-wah guitar. As it is, though, Ashwin recorded this one in 1986 – so the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A really unique little record – and one with a trans-Atlantic heritage too!

John BerberianOud Artistry (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $11.99
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!

Strawberry Rain, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $19.99

Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy .... $28.99
There's nothing "easy" about this sweet little set – as the music's got a raw edge and righteous power that even blows away most of our favorite Afro Funk jams of the time – thanks to an approach that's even more jazz-based than some of Easy Kabaka Brown's contemporaries! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
