The classic, classic CLASSIC theme song by that most beloved of late 60s American children's television – the fuzzy, colorful and endearing to this day Banana Splits! "The Tra La Song (One Banana, Two Banana)" is a late 60s bubblegum classic of the highest order – we'd love even if it wasn't played by a group in fuzzy costumes – but it's better because of it! It's backed by "Toy Piano Melody".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Staatsakt (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)
An offbeat groove from the enigmatic Babyman – with a sound that's as weird as the image on the sleeve! The vocals are spoken, maybe almost rhymed – but set to this great mellow funk groove with a tripping 70s feel – funky, but laidback, and with these great "Summer ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kana Soro/Idarga Bidi
Academy, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Totally massive – and one of the most hard-breaking Afro Funk tunes we've ever heard! "Kana Soro" has these killer drums at the start – really hitting hard with a wicked crackle right away – then rolls into an organ line that almost feels like "The Message" by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Don't Commot Me/Obiara Wondo
Academy, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
We've never been commotted – so we're not sure what it means to "Don't Commot Me" – but we can say that the tune is a wickedly sharp bit of Afro Funk, complete with some very fast-riffing guitar! The instrument's a lot more tight than on some of the looser Afro numbers of the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
