Geraldo PinoBoogie Fever (with bonus download) ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Late 70s work from Geraldo Pino – the artist who was credited as being one of the first musicians to bring the styles of James Brown to play in West Africa – still grooving hard here at the other end of the decade!

Beautiful work by Awa Poulo – a Malian singer with years of work under her belt, sounding very classic on this great contemporary recording! The music is nicely spare and folksy – Awa's amazing vocals carving these hypnotic lines amidst n'goni, guitar, flute, and percussion – all ... read more CD

Quantic Presents Flowering Inferno1000 Watts ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A dubbier set than even before from Quantic and his Flowering Inferno project – a record that's still quite heavy on the range of Caribbean elements he blended with funk on the previous two albums, but one that also seems to draw a bit more strongly from the sound of Kingston overall!

Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Dramatic funk from 70s Iran – some really compelling grooves, set to rich vocals by the lovely Ramesh! The approach here definitely borrows bits from Western culture – some rhythms and elements that echo American mainstream soul and funk of the time, with moogy touches too – but ... read more CD

Tanya RiaDo The Smasher/Love You Didn't Want ... 7-inch
Kumi/Jazzaggression (Estonia), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A sweet funky sound from 70s Nairobi – two great cuts, back to back on a funky 45! "Do The Smasher" is a full-on funky track – almost JBs in the way the thing was put together, but with rougher edges all around – on the horn blasts, guitar riffs, and especially on the ...

PMG (Austria), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
The Rock Town Express here comes across with lots of fuzz in the guitars – that later psych influence that was tripping across the African scene in the late 70s, often mixed with a bit of funk – as in some of the hipper Zamrock grooves of the period! The approach here is maybe a bit ... read more CD

A sweet blend of modes from Martinique musician Claude Rodap – a set that's titled "Syn" after the synthesizer elements used in the music, and "Ka" for the percussion in the mix – which is based around "Gwo Ka" and other Caribbean modes! Overall, the album' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
