CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of the coolest 70s albums from the mighty Manu Dibango – a rare soundtrack that's done with an even greater variety of sounds than his more conventional albums! The sound's sometimes spare and rootsy, but still with this undercurrent of funk – as Dibango mixes together basslines ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A beautiful little horror soundtrack from the team of Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – much more subtle than most others of the time, and handled with some very unusual styles! There's a gently flowing quality to the music here that we really love – a slow-building ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sound Stage 7/Airline, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Heavy funk from Sound Stage Seven – a legendary label that's often known for its deep soul work of the late 70s – but an imprint who are equally skilled in the funk department as well! The label's Nashville placement gave them a unique opportunity to draw from sources like Memphis, ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
No U-Turn – Live in Pasadena 1975
Dark Tree (France), 1975. New Copy Gatefold
Never-heard music from the legendary team of Bobby Bradford and John Carter – a live California performance from the years after their groundbreaking albums for the Revelation and Flying Dutchman labels – a time when both musicians were at the height of their creative powers! The group ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Art Yard/Strut (UK), 1973. New Copy
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkesta – and a set that's every bit as great as Ra's self-released albums on Saturn Records in the 70s! The performance is a well-recorded date from France in the early 70s – and the Arkestra are at their richest, most expressive – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Wounded Woman
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy
A lost southern soul album from the 70s – recorded down at Muscle Shoals by singer Sandra Wright, and originally intended for release on Stax Records – but never issued at the time! Sandra's a great singer – deep soul, but with a touch of class, too – and the approach here ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Metamorphosis
Schema/Rearward (Italy), 2015. New Copy
A wonderfully sensitive record from Italian piano legend Guido Manusardi – a record that still has a swing at all the right moments, but which also has these darker currents we especially love! The trio here really seems to follow Guido's lead – and sometimes the pianist is working ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
There was definitely something in the water down in mid-60s Texas – as the scene easily turned out some of the rawest, raunchiest work of the time – the kind of heavy garage and early psych numbers that have driven collectors for decades! This set's got an excellent focus on that might ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy
Wonderful wonderful music from one of the greatest sources for west coast R&B in the 50s – producer John Dolphin, who also owned a legendary record store too – and really knew his way around a groove! The set collections some rare 78s from Dolphin's mini-empire in LA – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The world of Blundetto is a mighty groovy one – filled with dubby rhythms, funky touches, and some of the sharpest underground production around!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Loads of rare work from the great Clarence Frogman Henry – a New Orleans singer with a really unusual voice – as you might guess from his name! The set includes Henry's big hit "Ain't Got No Home" but then spins out to include a wealth of under-exposed singles from later ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Excello/KTI (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful little album from the earliest days of the Ingram empire in soul – recorded long before any of the individual members had gone onto bigger mainstream fame, and done in a way that has lots of righteous indie touches! Sister Barbara sings lead vocals on most of the tracks – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sublime Frequencies, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Weird and wonderful music from an array of rare Thai records – much of which clearly owes something to Anglo pop of the same generation, but which often comes off with a really weird feel overall! Apart from the language difference, there's also a slightly off-kilter style to most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Groove Island
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy
An island of groove from reedman Alessandro Scala – a player who mostly leads a core trio on the set, but also gets help on half the record from trumpeter Flavio Boltro! We're well-known for our love of Boltro – so we'll just take that as a given – and instead focus on the tight ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cherries/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy
Sweet 80s grooves from Social Lovers – a contemporary group, but one who work in a style that's somewhere between the best keyboard styles of the underground artists of the post-disco years, mixed with some of the darker elements of the European scene as well! Had these guys been alive back ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Black Resurrection
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2015. New Copy 2CD
A double CD set of timeless, soulful house from Chicago legend Glenn Underground – who is as deft as ever at laying down diverse sounds that blend cosmic keys and earthy production, jazzy rhythms and soulful beats, and occasional dreamy vocals.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A whimsical set of tracks – penned by Walter Rizzati for this 1979 comedy starring the duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill as two nice guys fighting hunters on the African scene!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Victory (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Great grooves galore from this ultra-cool Japanese cartoon – served up as a host of funky jazz tracks from keyboardist Yuji Ohno!
