LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 32

Pivotal Afro Funk tracks from Tony Allen – a masterpiece! Allen is recording here as the leader of the Afrika 70 group, but with Fela in the band, and handling production chores as well. The groove is very similar to Fela's, but with the drums higher in the mix, and a bit more of an instrumental feel. A tremendous record, one that really signifies what the immense talent of Tony Allen as a leader! And as with Fela's work, the album features 2 long tracks – "No Accommodation For Lagos" and "African Message".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tramp (Germany), 2014. New Copy
An Afro Funk combo, but one who really open up their groove, too – mixing in some great outside instrumentation that still stays close to the roots!

Hot Casa (France), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The album's only got two long tracks – but both of them are more than enough to make it great! "Kalabuley Woman" takes up all of side one – and the tune's got this wickedly dubby approach to funk – almost like Cymande at the start, but then filled up with all these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A heady brew of unusual music from the Iraqi scene – material that's billed here as folk and pop, but which has a quality that's a lot different than those genres might sound in the US!
