Dust To Digital moves across the Atlantic Ocean – and brings the same great skill to African music they've already brought to blues, folk, and gospel! This package is amazing – 100 rare 78rpm recordings, appearing here on CD for the first time ever – not just wonderful music, but music that's wonderfully put together – with detailed notes that really blow us away as much as the sounds on the discs! The beautiful thing is that these guys not only know how to pick the best tracks, but that they also know what the music is about – and can prove it with a lavish 112 page book that features very rich information on all the obscure recordings – an archival feat that's a real bargain at this price. Heck, some guys would spend an entire career just to excavate and annotate this much great music – yet it's all in a day's work for this legendary label. And we haven't even told you about the actual music yet – but trust us, it's wonderful – the kind of mindblowing 78-era tracks that will really open up your understanding of global sounds!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dust To Digital, 1960s. New Copy
Pretty amazing music from Morocco – sounds that are definitely as raw as promised in the title, but which also go way past what you might expect as music from 45s! First off, the tunes are much longer than usual for a 7" single – as most numbers are well over 5 minutes in length, ... CD

Parlortone/Dust To Digital, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Rare 45s from Yemen – rawly, though crystal clear in both sound and emotion – a real eye-opener of a set compiled by Chris Menist! We've had little chance to hear Yemeni music of this period or any other – and judging from this set, these are sounds we want to explore and ... CD

Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Amazing sounds from 70s Ghana – a killer collection that really lives up to all the greatness of other collections on the Analogue Africa label! There's a sharpness here right from the start – an approach to funk that's really universal, and shows why collections from a generation like ... CD

Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with ... CD

Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy
Really tremendous stuff – and kind of a genre-defining compilation – one that will ship our listening for years to come! We've heard a bit of 70s Iranian music before, but this overstuffed package really opens up our ears – to a range of funky, freaky sounds that go way beyond ... CD

Killer Crocodile
Kronos (Austria), 1989. New Copy
A killer croc has never sounded so spooky – thanks to great soundtrack work from Riz Ortolani! Ortolani's a name that you probably know best from famous global film success of the 60s – but by the time of this late 80s album, he's really matured nicely – and has a way with dark ... CD

Funky Chicken (with bonus tracks)
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Killer work from one of the funkiest leaders on the Chicago scene – the mighty mighty Willie Henderson, force behind some of the city's greatest soul tracks and funky 45s! This album's like a stack of lost funky nuggets laid back to back – with lots and lots of bass-heavy grooving from ... CD
