They're not kidding with the name of this group – because the set's a masterpiece of 70s Afro Funk – totally great all the way through! The combo has African origins, but they're recording here in London – which makes for a really wonderful criss-crossing of cultural modes – the same sort of heavy, dark-tinged groups you'd hear from Cymande or Demon Fuzz – both of whom are a great comparison to the sound of this group! Bass is very heavy in the mix – not dubby, but really rumbling right from the start of each tune – and helping to set up the complicated percussion patterns, fuzzy guitar bits, and nicely trippy vocals – all of which are recorded in just the right way to make the sum of the elements sound like way more than the parts. Titles include "Afro Funk", "Tei Egwu", "Hot Love", "Farewell To Ibusa", and "Try & Try". (Very limited, numbered edition – and includes code for digital download.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a set from the legendary Fela Kuti – a classic set of Nigerian grooves produced by Ginger Baker – who was already a frequent musical partner of Fela!

Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 60s. New Copy
Beautiful work from Ti Paris – a Haitian guitarist who works here in a relatively stripped-down setting – usually just his voice and acoustic guitar, light percussion, and occasional chorus vocals!

Numero, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 LPs
Great work from a label that was way out in the Cleveland scene of the 60s – but which bristles with some of the best energy of Detroit and Chicago at the time!

Secret Stash, 1969/1970. New Copy
Not "lost tapes" – more "long overdue tapes" – as they finally give us a full picture of this legendary funk band from Milwaukee! Vic Pitts got his start in the Seven Sounds with Harvey Scales – but at the time of these recordings, he'd broken off to form his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s. New Copy
The title's a great one for the nature of the collection – a mixture of obscure folk, blues, and old-time music – most of it made by relatively recent immigrants to the US! The package does a great job of drawing strands between early styles of music that were recorded for 78rpm ... LP, Vinyl record album
