4.50 32

Heavy funk from 70s Ghana – a sweet little set that's filled with rare and unusual grooves! The collection's got a strong focus on unreleased and very obscure material – and from what we can tell, none of these tracks have been reissued at all! The work here is not only funky, but it's also got some really offbeat qualities too – a bit psych-oriented at times, in the way the production comes together, or in the style of the instrumentation – a lot less crossover-oriented than some of the other grooves coming from other parts of the African scene in the 70s, although there's plenty of numbers here that would appeal to fans of American funk and soul. Titles include "Accra Makola" and "Kofi Wedzidzi" by Cutlass Dance Band, "Okuan Tsentsen Awar" and "Mber Papa" by CK Mann, "Kwaakwa" and "I Am Black" by Apagya Show Band, "Bolga Besia" by Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, "Dza Hunu Tso" by Amartey Hedzoleh, "Amponsah" by Ebo Taylor, and "Read The Bible" by Rob.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sublime vocal work from a contemporary Georgian ensemble – but one who work strongly in the best ancient modes of the Eastern world! The group have an amazing polyphonic approach – voices rising and falling, crossing and turning, coming together in a way that's far more than usual ... 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

CD...$6.99 12.98
Way more than just an introduction to Chicago soul – and instead, a surprisingly hip little set that features a fair bit of indie singles from the Windy City scene of the 60s! There's a few minor chart numbers here, but most of the tracks are much more underground – and include a ... CD
