DostanaTribulation ... LP
Muller, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Hard to peg this group from Chicago – but the album's got some pretty unusual rhythms! The combo looks to be a funky one – but they play with distinct Caribbean and African influences in the bass and drum parts, and especially in the guitar, which jangles back and forth across the ...

Vicky EdimoThank U Mama (with bonus download) ... LP
Afrodisia (Nigeria), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An Afro Funk set with a very special vibe – a bit different than some of the other work of the time, and a standout performance from singer/instrumentalist Vicky Edimo! Vicky's a he, in case you didn't know (we didn't) – and his touch on percussion and keyboards is nicely moody in all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Linic Major/Odion Livingstone (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A rare boogie set from the Nigerian scene – but one that also has the power to circle the globe with a universal sense of soul – as you might guess by the cosmopolitan look of Livy Ekemezie on the cover! The set's got a very strong tie to the grooves of the New York scene of the time ... read more CD

Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Funky disco music, and a lot more too – all served up in this rare 70s set by Eko Roosevelt from Cameroon! The leadoff track is a long groover that runs for more than 10 minutes in length – and has that mix of modes that you'd often find in some of the Parisian Afro tracks recorded in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old ... read more CD

One of the lesser-known 70s session from Fela – but a great one too, and a record that captures the Africa 70 group at all their early raw best! Tracks are both very long – stretching for a side of the record apiece – and the title track "Alagbon Close" features some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great place to start with Fela! This 2CD set features the "best best best best" of Fela's classic mid 70s recordings – and it includes a total of 13 cuts, with some of them obviously edited down to shorter takes than the extended ones that appear on the full LPs. With all the ... read more CD

The cover image here really demonstrates the charisma of Fela at his height – dozens of topless women, kneeling around the maestro and spelling out the number 70 – but to us, the music is what really shows the man's power – a bold, progressive statement of the new energy bubbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
