✨✧ Mahmoud Ahmed/Girma BeyeneAynotche Terabu/Ene Negn Bay Manesh ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Mulatu AstatkeYegelle Tezeta/Yekatit ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the funkiest cuts ever from the legendary Mulatu – a tune that's got very heavy drums on the bottom, romping through a rhythm that's got plenty of appeal to fans of American funk – while the man himself serves up this moody organ line alongside a weird, exotic reed solo!

Afous D'AfousTarhanine Tegla/Tarhanam Toussassi ... 7-inch
Sahel Sounds, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
A beautiful cut from the contemporary Saharan scene – one that's got this midtempo rhythm that steps along slowly – while a supremely hypnotic guitar line spins out over the top, after being introduced by a bit of catchy chorus! The guitar part's the main draw here – but the ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

DaltonAlech/Soul Brother ... 7-inch
Habibi Funk (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
Dalton hails from Tunisia, and they've got a very groovy sound – a mix of 70s funk and some elements that almost remind us of Turkish rock – all wrapped up in a totally infectious groove on "Alech", which has a great group vocal on the cook! "Soul Brother" is a bit ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Alemayehu Eshete/Amadou BalakeTchero Adari Negn/Bemem Sebeb ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970/1978. New Copy ... $11.99
Two rare Afro grooves – back to back on a funky 45! "Tchero Adari Negn" is the funkiest cut we've ever heard from Alemayehu Eshete – a track with rhythms that could well be from the James Brown band, given the sharpness of the guitar, bass, and percussion all coming together ...

Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Sweet organ and guitar do a mighty nice dance together at the start of "Kyenkyen Bi Adi" – then these wicked beats come in, all snapping and syncopated – while horns carve out this nicely exotic vibe over the top! "Heaven" is a tune that certainly lives up to its ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Fruko y Sus TesosEl Preso/Bang Bang (El Tiroteo) ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Two massive cuts from Fruko – really here at the height of his powers! "El Preso" begins with familiar Latin piano and percussion, but builds with a rawer Colombian groove as things move on – nice and heavy, and a Latin stunner throughout! "Bang Bang" has these ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Bahta Gebre-Hiwot is one of those Ethiopian singers you may not be able to pronounce, but who you'll really be digging once you hear him sing – a cool, raspy style over a slightly funky groove with rolling piano, a bit of horns, and some nice riffing guitar in the middle! Alemayehu Eshete is ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Silt ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $11.99
The drums move hard and fast on "Muziqa Muziqa" – and the organ lines do too – peppering this Ethio groover with a really offbeat sound, while tight horn lines keep a soulful finish over the top – and Seyoum's vocals move up and down in a really incredible range!

Nico Gomez & His OrchestraAquarela/Rio ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from the great Nico Gomez – a tune that begins with pounding piano in a bossa-styled groove, then features female chorus vocals rising with the rhythms – all with a warm style that's really wonderful throughout! "Rio" is great too – ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Wganda Kenya/Peter KingShalaode/Ajo ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99
A fiercely bubbling blend of African roots and cool electronic touches – riffing guitar over the grooves, and what sounds like some sort of moogy instrument that creates these weird waves of sound underneath the powerful group vocals in the lead! Very funky, with almost a Fela-like group ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
A wonderfully funky number from the legendary Rail Band – a tune that has this cool, exotic horn part at the start – which then gets bumped along by this romping rhythm – almost a drum break, but more complicated overall – and topped with these excellent back/forth vocals! ...

The fast-stepping drums make this one a winner right from the start – then the rough-edged vocals come in with a nicely moody vibe, and are matched by this tight, fast horns – and lots of other instrumental solos from the group! The cut's surprisingly long for a 45 – and has ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cree (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3 x 7 Inch ... $31.99 39.95
Fantastic funk from Trinidad – music that's got a much deeper groove than some of the other Caribbean disco we know from the time!
