A pretty incredible compilation of Cambodia Rock – the best one we've come across – classic original Khmer Rock from scene pioneer Sinn Sisamouth and many more! The set as an effort to present this fun, groovy and yes, spectacular Cambodian Rock as it was originally heard by the people in its pre-Pol Pot heyday – before the original vinyl releases were hidden away and eventually circulated via low quality cassette bootlegs – and it sounds great! Awesome stuff all around, much of it with a raw garage psych vibe with fuzzed out guitars, heavy drums, woozy organ and male & female lead vocals – always with a groovy rhythm. Includes "Do You No Wrong Again" by Thra Kha Band, "Khnyom Jah Karake" by Tet Somnang & Meas Samon, "Pros Chang Reiy" and "Pail Loung Rom (Go To Dance)" by Pan Ron, "Jet Snaeh Theang Nov" and "Yuvachon Yuvatey Samai Tmai (New Generation Youth" by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Dereysothea, "Duang Netra" and "Satt Thee Thuy" by Sinn Sisamouth, "Bong Rau Roub Khnyom" by Ros Sereysothea, "Youm Os Tirk Pnake" by Pov Vannary and more. 19 tracks on 2LPs in a nice gatefold sleeve with fairly extensive notes on the back cover and inside the gatefold.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A heady South African group from the early 70s – but one who feel much more like underground funk of the late 60s! The feel here is a garagey blend of instrumental soul and early funk – mixed with with some fuzzier guitar lines that add a nice psychedelic undercurrent, but not in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yekte
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album

Turk A Disk, 1970s. New Copy
The follow-up to one of our favorite Turkish funk compilations of recent years – and it's just as great! Volume 2 focuses on the fertile mid 70s period for the most part – and it got tunes that carry the buzzing strings and raw rhythms of the psych era pretty well into the next decade ...

Coban Mamos – Disco Folk
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy
A second set of Disco Folk from this unique Turkish pair – duo working in late 70s Germany, and mixing up their own roots with a range of different electric instrumentation!

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A heady brew of unusual music from the Iraqi scene – material that's billed here as folk and pop, but which has a quality that's a lot different than those genres might sound in the US! The folksy cuts often have angular reed work in the mix, which really gives them a sharp edge – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahel Sounds, 2014. New Copy
Very cool contemporary work from Mali – music that's a lot more electric and beat-oriented than other sounds you might already know from the scene – but still served up in a style that's nice and stripped-down too! There's a mix of electricity and organic acoustic elements that almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Googoosh
Finders Keepers (UK), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy
Beautiful Persian pop from Faegheh Atashin, aka Googoosh (alternately, Gougoush)– and like some of the best, adventurous pop music from around the world at the the time, it's steeped in myriad styles – from emotionally string-laden to funky and danceable! Googoosh is a genuine ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
An amazing second foray into the world of punk rock 45s – and the British chapter to the previous American volume from Soul Jazz! Like the first set, the track selection here is superb – no overdone punk "oldies" or overplayed classics – and instead a great range of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
