William OnyeaborGreat Lover ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.99
William Onyeabor looks like a great lover on the cover of this set – and he follows up that image with some of the slinkiest, most seductive music of his career! There's almost a dub element to the record at times – as if Onyeabor was borrowing inspiration from Kingston, and bringing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborHypertension ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.99
William Onyeabor's looking pretty chilled out on the cover – especially given the Hypertension title of the record – a cool, confident dude decked out in a velvet jacket and sombrero – able to carry off that look as well as he can carry the grooves on the set! In anyone else's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborTomorrow ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.99
The sound of tomorrow, circa 1979 – as Afro groove pioneer William Onyeabor works his magic on a host of extended tracks – finding a way for earlier funk modes to move into leaner styles for the 80s! The music here has plenty of keyboards and basslines, but is maybe less totally ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

World Circuit/Nonesuch, 1982. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 26.98
Hardly a pirate album at all – and instead one of the first big global moments of fame for the mighty Orchestra Baobob – a Senegalese combo who'd really been honing their craft during the 70s!

A beautiful set from the legendary Syllart label – a very well-recorded session from this Guinean group whose members include Diabate Sekou and Kante Manfila!

Orient ExpressOrient Express ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
We'd never come across Orient Express before, one of the rare rock-oriented acts on the Mainsteam jazz label in the late 60s and 70s – but after a spin of this super rare hybrid of heavy psychedelic rock, HUGE percussion and electric Eastern string effects we're hooked! The group mixes heavy ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta Afro BrasileiraOrquesta Afro Brasileira (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A wholly unique late 60s record by Orquesta Afro Brasileira – with these raw, heavy and unforgettable roosty rhythms and chorus vocals that give it something of a spiritual, folkloric vibe – yet the overall sound is still indicative of the genre-busting creativity of the many different ...

OsibisaOsibirock ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
A big crossover hit for Osibisa – a record that has the group softening up their groove slightly from the heady days of the Roger Dean album covers, yet still retaining enough Afro Funk to keep things interesting! If anything, the rhythms here are a bit pan-global – sometimes hard and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Secret Stash, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
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 LP, Vinyl record album
