Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A totally sweet set of grooves from the African scene of the 70s – and one that's a fair bit different than most of the other collections we've got on our racks! The styles here are a bit more offbeat, and a bit less familiar – not straight Afro Funk, but also not some of the popular ... (Global Grooves, Funky Compilations) read more CD

VariousAfro Blue Vol 2 – The Roots & Rhythms Of Jazz ... CD
Blue Note, 1998. Used ... $7.99
Despite the "primitivist" sort of leanings you might expect from the "roots" in the title, this is actually a nice batch of tracks from the catalogs of Blue Note and World Pacific during the 60's – and they're all jazz tracks that have a slight Africanist influence, but ... read more CD

Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Home Schooled collection from Numero Group – and, like that one, a set that focuses on the surprisingly great genre of kid soul that flourished in the 70s – in the wake of bigger groups like the Jackson Five, Sylvers, and 5 Stairsteps! These ... read more CD

VariousAll The Young Dudes 2 – Compiled By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Playwright (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $26.99
That's not a Mott The Hoople reference on the cover – as the title instead refers to all the young dudes on the current Tokyo scene who are setting the city on fire with a fresh approach to club-oriented jazz – presented here in a selection by Sunaga T, a slightly older dude from the ... read more CD

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet sounds from around the globe – served up by a range of artists who've drawn key inspiration from the LA sound of the 70s, and manage to take the music into some great territory of their own!

Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 60s – a wonderfully rich array of hard soul grooves – all with a superb pedigree! The "At" here is short for "Atlantic" – as in Atlantic Records, the source of all the very groovy cuts on this set – as well as some from the early ... (Soul, Funky Compilations) read more CD

Avco/Victor (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A sweet selection of 70s soul singles from the Avco label – best known as the home to a number of very big groups at the time, but a company that also produced some especially great work that never hit the mainstream!

Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. Used ... $11.99
Raw sound, indeed – and possibly one of the most hard-hitting compilations so far from the Analog Africa label! There's a quality here that's mighty fresh, and which shows us that there's still plenty of African nuggets to find, if you know where to dig! Much of the music has a dark, moody ...

Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A killer! As revolutionary as the music and political climate was in the Bay Area in the late 60s and early 70s, it's damn near criminal that there haven't been more representative collections of the music – enter Luv N Haight Records, who are here with the first ever comprehensive ... read more CD

Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98

✨✧ VariousBest Of Down & Wired Vol 1 & 2 ... CD
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Funky sounds from the rock side of the musical spectrum – music by artists who might have worked in psych or garage modes in the 60s, but also had a pretty darn heavy groove – and a fair bit of inspiration from 60s soul in their vocals! The tracks are wonderful – really unlikely ... read more CD
