Jealousy

LP (Item 584610) Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1975 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 32

The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s! Fela and his group (Afrika 70) are still working with Tony here, and Fela lays down some tenor and piano solos – but make no mistake, it's Tony's show – and it's a great one. Allen's drums are right out front – and from the first note of the record, you know it's his own bag. Two long tracks – "Jealousy" and "Hustler" – make up the set, but that's plenty for us!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ubuntu (Netherlands), 1940s/1950s. New Copy
A very cool collection of work from the South African scene – and almost all of it from the start of the 60s, despite the way the title is listed! Apart from one 1940 track, most of the music here comes from 1960 – a pivotal year when South African music was really growing up – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ammalele
Mississippi/Little Axe/Domino Sound, 1976. New Copy
One of the rarer Ethiopian recordings we've heard from the 70s – and one of the most compelling, too! The sounds here are just as haunting as more familiar Ethiopian music, but also have a nicely unbridled feel too – almost a bit rough at times, especially in the way the rhythms unfurl ...

Simigwa
Academy, 1975. New Copy
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some ...

Academy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic funky combo from the mid 70s African scene – one who worked previously with Geraldo Pino, and who definitely show some traces of his own great work too – but who also have a madly great groove that's all their own! Freedom Family are definitely on the funkier side of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Domino Sound, 1973. New Copy
Rare Ethiopian material from the early 70s – ostensibly a set of wedding-related tracks, but with grooves that are every bit as great as classics in the Ethiopiques series!

Mississippi/Domino Sound, 1960s. New Copy
Seminal sounds from SE Rogie – one of the most important palm wine artists to emerge from Sierra Leone in the 60s!

Yeni Bir Gun
Guerssen (Spain), 1979. New Copy Gatefold
An overlooked late 70s album from the great Baris Manco – one that has the Turkish experimentalist unlocking even more strange corners of his music – finding a new way to combine eastern and western elements in his sound! The album's every bit as edgey and compelling as Manco's earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Discos Fuentes/Domino Sound, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Old school cumbia tunes – with plenty of raw rhythms and acoustic instrumentation in the mix!
