African influenced funk from Karl Hector & The Malcouns – the long-standing deep funk collective centered around guitarist and producer Jay Whitefield and other players from modern funk trailblazers Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers – who bring their most globally steeped grit and groove when they're working as Karl Hector & The Malcouns! The Tamanrasset EP goes even deeper in the African influenced sounds than the Sahara Swing album did – but there's enough freewheeling psychedelic funk in the mix to make this much more than a mere Afro or Ethio Funk revival effort. Swirling organs, heavy and dexterous bass lines, great horns and all around masterful musicianship really sets this group apart, as does their longstanding underground funk pedigree. Includes "El Gusto", "Tamanrasset", "M'hammath (Live)", "Girma's Lament" and "Wajeerta Hoose (The Lower Wajeer)". We wish it ran longer, but wanting more isn't much of a flaw, is it? (Vinyl only release with hand silk screened cover by Hit + Run – limited to 1000 copies and Now Again promises it will not be repressed!!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Unique (Germany), 2013. New Copy
Al Supersonic has a mighty nice vocal approach on this retro-soul set – a style that's a bit looser and maybe more personal than some other singers in recent years – a quality that gives the the whole thing a pretty sweet edge!

African Skies
Captcha, 1993. New Copy Gatefold
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from the legendary Phil Cohran – a previously-unissued performance from 1993, and one that's every bit as wonderful as his rare albums of the late 60s! The set was recorded at the planetarium in Chicago – and for the date, Cohran comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lion, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A startlingly great mid 70s loner folk record by Scott Key – with some of the finest, most artful fingerstyle guitar we've heard on a self-recorded album from the period – and a really strong record that would be right at home on the Takoma label! Recorded in Colorado by Key himself, ... LP, Vinyl record album
