New King Sunny AdeAura ... LP
Island, 1984. Very Good ... $2.99
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. The percolating multi-guitar and talking drum sound that was Ade's signature keeps the set gliding along nicely. 6 longer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

New 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

New Dan Boadi & The African InternationalsMoney Is The Root Of All Evil ... LP
NAAP, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A strange bit of Afro Funk – recorded in Chicago, of all places! Vocalist Dan Boadi leads a group that's got a great 70s electric groove on the cut "Money is The Root Of All Evil" – a slinky little groover that snakes along with the beat, and which has some extremely catchy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Paco De Lucia with Larry Coryell & John McLaughlinCastro Marin ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $22.99
A real bridge-building album for the legendary Paco DeLucia – as the set begins in the same solo mode as his best records from the 70s, but expands near the end to bring in help from two other key guitarists of the time! The setting is quite similar to previous DeLucia albums – at ... read more CD
