Nonesuch (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the best CDs of gamelan music you could hope to find!

Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. Used ... $13.99
Raw sound, indeed – and possibly one of the most hard-hitting compilations so far from the Analog Africa label!

One of the coolest styles of music in the Caribbean – and one that never got as much exposure as it should in the Anglo world at the time – even though there's a fair bit of jazz at play in the sounds on this collection! Biguine's a very unique hybrid from the Antilles – a ... read more CD

VariousBush Taxi Mali – Field Recordings From Mali ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 1998. Used ... $9.99

VariousCan't You Hear Me – African Nuggets ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
The "nuggets" in the title is very well placed here – as all the cuts here have every bit as much freak and fuzz as the American garage and pre-punk work chronicled famously on the lengendary Nuggets series! Yet these tracks are all even more obscure, and all come from African ... read more CD
