Soundway (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used 2CDs ... $9.99

Pazy & The Black HippiesWa Ho Ha ... CD
Secret Stash, 1978. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
A weird little record from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – much more laidback than you might expect, and a set with a definite Jamaican influence too! At times, some of these tracks are almost more reggae than Afro Funk – although at other points, there's definitely the fierce energy ... read more CD

Copperbelt/Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
