Boban PetrovicZora ... LP
Discom/Disco Not Disco (Serbia), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A sweet slice of 80s electro soul from Serbia – a set that's the lasting legacy of Boban Petrovic, an artist who was heavily influenced by funky disco sounds from the west – and maybe a bit of fusion as well!

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!

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!

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 ...
