A 70s Afro Funk classic from Blo – really trippy grooves from this legendary Nigerian trio – and arguably their greatest album ever! Rhythms here are tremendous – not the usual sort of Afro style, and instead tightly focused at the roots, and coming off with this blistering blend that really drives the tunes strongly – jamming, but without ever jamming too much – kind of a steady fire that really sounds great underneath the vocals! The core elements of the trio are augmented by keyboards from Joni Haastrum and Segun Bucknor – each important Afro Funk players in their own right, who both really help add a nice sort of psych element alongside the skittish grooving of the guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Blo", "It's Gonna Be A Good Day", "Native Doctor", "Do It You'll Like It", "Atide", and "Whole Lot Of Sh*t". (Limited edition – with heavy vinyl and cover, and insert too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fortuna, 1978. New Copy Gatefold
Cool compelling grooves from Grazia – sung in Turkish, released in late 70s Israel, and a mad mix of styles throughout!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A heady South African group from the early 70s – but one who feel much more like underground funk of the late 60s!

Edip Akbayram
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy

Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
