Ten years in for the Tabou Combo – and the group's sounding funkier than ever! The album's got a groove that's even tighter than some of their earliest records – and there's a definite funky feel to the music at times – not just Haitian styles, but a nice US influence too – yet one that's filtered through some really unique global influences too! Despite the date of the record, the instrumentation is mostly in a late 70s ensemble funk mode – with harder edges than usual from the combo, and almost a Kool & The Gang influence going on – but, with the Haitian elements thrown in, an overall sound that comes across with the vibe of Banda Black Rio. Really great stuff – with cuts that include "Hoola Hoop Disco", "Let Me Play That Funky Music", "Tabou Disco", "Tania", "Let's Do The Groove", and "Fausse Conception". CD also features bonus extended mixes of "Hoola Hoop Disco" and "Tabou Disco".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream ... CD

Dust To Digital, 1960s. New Copy
Pretty amazing music from Morocco – sounds that are definitely as raw as promised in the title, but which also go way past what you might expect as music from 45s! First off, the tunes are much longer than usual for a 7" single – as most numbers are well over 5 minutes in length, ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 2007. New Copy
A second amazing set of guitars from Agadez – this time around from Group Bombino, who have a slightly warmer sound than Group Inerane – but one that's equally great as well! The tunes build up sparely from percussion, guitar parts, and vocals from the group – sung together in a ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy
Really tremendous stuff – and kind of a genre-defining compilation – one that will ship our listening for years to come! We've heard a bit of 70s Iranian music before, but this overstuffed package really opens up our ears – to a range of funky, freaky sounds that go way beyond ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Brilliant later work from Lavern Baker – material recorded years after her bigger fame at Atlantic Records, but with vocals that are still equally sublime! The set's got a very different feel than the blusier styles of before – and features wonderful Chicago soul production by Carl ... CD
