Mulatu Atsatke/Teshome MetekuAssiyo Bellema/Hasabe ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most Latin-styled tracks we've ever heard from the legendary Mulatu – a tone that's got fierce timbales in the lead, some nice conga lines, and chanted vocals from the group – plus great use of steel drums too! "Hasabe" on the flipside is from Teshome Meteku – ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Moussa Doumbia/Amadou BalakeKeleya/Super Bar Konon Mousso ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1974/1978. New Copy ... $11.99
Moussa Dumbia is at his funkiest here on "Keleya" – a tune that's got a very James Brown-styled groove at the bottom, and some raw shouting vocals to match! The core of the cut has a bit more back-forth in more of an Afro-styled mode – but still pretty funky! "Super Bar ... (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 ...

Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Slit ... 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!

Philophon, Late 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
Two great cuts from Hailu Mergia – both of them instrumentals, with a wicked blend of keyboard lines and African rhythms! "Yegle Nesha" has what sounds like a Fender Rhodes line – stepping over this head-nodding midtempo rhythm – a nicely stepping groove that never gets ...

Rail Band/Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De BamakoMaribayassa/Get Up James ... 7-inch
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! ...
