Goddy OkuOne More Chance ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1984. New Copy ... $23.99
A very cool record from Goddy Oku – who's pictured on the back cover working the knobs on a big studio console – definitely making sure that he gets his hand in the way the album's put together! There's an offbeat funky vibe to most of these tracks – almost a mode that recalls ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hot Casa (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A definite bass experience from Lagos musician Keni Okulo – a player who serves up grooves that are not only different from more common Nigerian music of the period, but which also rival some of the most creative American funk of the time!

OlatunjiZungo! – Afro Percussion ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of Olatunji's best LPs, and a record that breaks out of his usual straight hard percussion stuff by adding some jazz players like Yusef Lateef, Clark Terry, and George Duvivier. There's also some singers augmenting the ensemble, but they drop out in parts, and the percussion and jazz take over. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s!

A second version of William Onyeabor's music for the film Crashes In Love – one that's somewhat different than the first, and which almost has a different groove overall!

Luaka Bop, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.99
William Onyeabor looks like a great lover on the cover of this set – and he follows up that image with some of the slinkiest, most seductive music of his career!

A wholly unique late 60s record by Orquesta Afro Brasileira – with these raw, heavy and unforgettable roosty rhythms and chorus vocals that give it something of a spiritual, folkloric vibe – yet the overall sound is still indicative of the genre-busting creativity of the many different ...
