LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

Never-heard sounds from Karantamba – a rare live performance from the mid 80s, recorded in a small nightclub in Senegal – and featuring a tripped-out group led by Bai Janha – the creative force behind Guelewar and Supreme Eagles! The sound is a lot more psychedelic than most other African music of the 80s – with a strong emphasis on extended guitar parts that are dripping with really cool sounds – mixed with lots of live percussion that really preserves a rootsy, earthy quality to the music! At a time when so many others were going for world music crossover sounds, these guys really keep things real – especially in the intimate live setting of the performance. Titles include "Sama Yai", "Gore Nga", "Na Dinding Fatty", "Ndigal", "Satay Muso", and "Linga Ham". Great notes and images, too – like other high-quality releases on this label!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed!

Of course, there's a lot of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Explosion
Desco/Daptone, 1998. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest grooves from the legendary Desco Records years – a brilliant album of modern Afro Funk done by The Daktaris – in a groove that's just as hard-hitting as any of Fela's work from the 70s! The album was one of the first to bring back an older African style to current ... LP, Vinyl record album

High Moon, 1973. New Copy
Arthur Lee and Love's unreleased record from 1973!

It's raw in the best possible sense, with a live feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lenni Sesar
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A lost slammer from the Fania catalog of the 60s – the one and only album from the highly dynamic Lenni Sesar! Lenni's got a sound that's quite different from other Latin leaders of his time – very jazzy overall, especially on the uptempo numbers on the set – with a really full ... LP, Vinyl record album
