Ebo TaylorMy Love & Music ... LP
Gapophone/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.98
Really righteous sounds from the great Ebo Taylor – on a record that almost seems to show a bit of Jamaican or Caribbean influence on the rhythms, especially in the way the long tracks go tripping along lightly as the vocals and instrumentation unfold!

Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A contemporary combo from Togo, but one who've got a hard-riffing sound that takes us back to the James Brown band of the late 60s – which is then mixed with a lot of sweet touches of their own, to create one of the freshest strands of Afro Funk we've heard in years! These guys are hardly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

VisitorsMy Good Friends ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1977. New Copy ... $23.99

Wells FargoWatch Out (with bonus download) ... LP
Now Again, Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Funky-strutting genius from Wells Fargo – one of the coolest, heaviest acts to come out of the Zimbabwe scene of the 70s – a moment when hard rock and soulful basslines came together brilliantly, to power the raw edge of a handful of groups like this!
