King Sunny AdeAura ... LP
Island, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The third and tightest of Ade's albums for Island. The sound here is a hybrid of his Ju Ju style with a bit of Afrobeat thrown in, with Tony Allen guesting on one number.

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!

The album's only got two long tracks – but both of them are more than enough to make it great!
