Out Of Stock


4.80 32

A tropical combo, but one with a definite Haitian bent – from the French-language lyrics, right down to the warm rhythms at the core! The album's got a really great blend of trumpet, guitar, and accordion – the last of which is used more like an organ, in ways that are slow-paced, without the solo flourishes you'd hear in other genres – so that the instrument has this cool space-filling quality that's mighty nice! All three group members sing – and titles include "Papa Loco", "Plasir Teenagers", "Anita", "Information", "Timan Man Fe'm Douce", and "Information".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wa Ho Ha
Secret Stash, 1978. New Copy
A weird little record from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – much more laidback than you might expect, and a set with a definite Jamaican influence too! At times, some of these tracks are almost more reggae than Afro Funk – although at other points, there's definitely the fierce energy ... CD
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy
Mindblowing sounds from Blo – easily one of the most compelling groups of the African scene of the 70s – summed up perfectly here in this really essential set! Blo began as an Afro-rock combo, but grew to have plenty of funky touches too – which means that the set's got amazing ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2013. New Copy
Stunning sounds from Sidi Toure – an artist who's been making music for quite a few years now, but seems to get better and better with each new release! This set's got a wonderful sense of flow right from the start – a warm blend of Sidi's guitar and vocals with additional lead guitar ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1970s. New Copy
Way more than just the familiar funk you might know from the American scene of the 70s – and instead a really mad blend of different influences and elements that all show the very vibrant cultural scene in pre-Revolution Iran! The productions here are often full – strings mixed with ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy
One of the hippest groups of the Nigerian scene of the 70s – presented here in two classic albums, back to back on a single CD! Chapter One is a landmark set of African grooves – very unusual in both conception and execution – with a feel that's unlike anything we can think of! ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy
A really great little set from Japanese bassist Isao Suzuki – a rare player who goes way way past traditional modes of his chosen instrument, into richly creative territory that rivals the 70s experiments of Ron Carter! Like Carter, Suzuki's never content to just let the bass be a source in ... CD
Free Angela
Sound Of Soul/Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Japanese drummer George Otsuka is always one hell of a hip cat – one of those players whose name on a record always means that we'll pick it up – and never fail to hear something wonderful! And while Otsuka first got his start working with a piano trio at the end of the 60s, this sweet ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Not the Chicago group of AACM fame, but a completely different Japanese combo from the 70s – a very cool outfit who are equally avant in their approach – and work together in a very spiritual blend of acoustic and electric sounds! The album features one long track, improvised in a very ... CD
