Nu Guinea/Tony AllenAfrobeat Makers – Tony Allen Rhythms Revisited Vol 3 ... LP
Comet (France), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
Our favorite release so far in this great series that reworks the rhythms of Afro Funk legend Tony Allen – a record that takes original drums from Tony, breaks them down, reassembles them, and adds in a sweet range of keyboards – including lots of Fender Rhodes, Roland Jupiter, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rim Kwaku Obeng & The BelieversToo Tough/I'm Not Going To Let You ... CD
Sum Sum/BBE (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Wonderfully groovy work from Rim Kwaku Obeng – an artist with African roots, but working here in the San Francisco scene of the early 80s – where he's clearly picked up a very international vibe in his music! Rim definitely plays some traditional percussion on the tracks, but there's ... read more CD

OchoOcho 1 ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The rare first album by Ocho – and a killer batch of Latin tracks that breaks down all definitions of the music! Ocho were a seminal group in the NuYorica scene of the early 70s – blending soul, funk, Latin, jazz, and other styles into a groove that was perhaps a bit too complicated ...

Emma OgosiNobody Knows ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Emma Ogosi is one of the stronger songwriters we've heard from the Nigerian scene of the early 80s – and a vocalist who's not afraid to put his feelings on the line, a bit in the manner of Labi Siffre's from a few years before! There's a heartbreaking vibe to some of these tunes, even when ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny OkosunLiberation ... LP
Shanachie, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
US issue of some of Sonny's African recordings from the early 80s. The groove here is afro-pop, with crisp guitars and a lighter beat than Fela's style of afrobeat, but with similar cascading horn parts. The production's a bit slicker too, with the vocals pushed way forward in the mix. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Goddy OkuOne More Chance ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
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 CD

Babatunde OlatunjiDance To The Beat Of My Drum ... LP
Roulette, 1986. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
It's the mid 80s and Mickey Hart's behind the production on this album, so you know it has a slick, glossy touch all over it, with a very "world music" approach. But the beauty of Olatunji's playing and subtle complexity of the rhythms trump the flashy approach. The lineup is huge, with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
