VisitorsMy Good Friends ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1977. New Copy ... $23.99
A nice little record that has the guitar wrapped around the vocals in a really cool way – as the instrument seems to handle equal parts rhythm and melody in the groove, while also getting sweet support from some nicely bubbling organ too! It's almost as if The Visitors have picked up on some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Guy Warren with Red Saunders OrchestraAfrica Speaks, America Answers ... LP
Decca, Late 50s. Poor ... $9.99
Great lost LP that pairs the crazy African percussionist Guy Warren with the orchestra of Red Saunders, one of the most important local bands in Chicago in the 50's, and an ensemble that was woefully underrecorded. Saunders played a lot at the south side's Club De Lisa, where Sun Ra regularly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: POOR CONDITION. Cover has some splitting. Vinyl has numerous marks which causes clicks & crackles throughout.)

Trilyte/Matsuli (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
Spiritual sounds and a heck of a lot more – served up by Ndiko Xaba, an expatriate South African musician who was working in Oakland at the time of this record – fusing together the roots of his homeland with some wonderfully free and open American jazz styles! At times, there's a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible sounds from the legendary Discos Fuentes – Colombia's powerhouse of musical magic for the past 50 years – presented here on some of the rootsier recordings from the label's early years!

VariousAfrica Airways 1 – Funk Connection 1973 to 1980 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $24.99
A totally sweet set of grooves from the African scene of the 70s – and one that's a fair bit different than most of the other collections we've got on our racks! The styles here are a bit more offbeat, and a bit less familiar – not straight Afro Funk, but also not some of the popular ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAfrica Airways 3 – Afro-Psych Excursion 1972 to 1984 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Freaky funk in a variety of flavors – tunes that are every bit as groovy as the material we heard on the previous two volumes of the Africa Airwaves series – but maybe a bit trippier too! These aren't the kind of tracks that are on the muddier, grubbier side of psych – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBambara Mystic Soul – The Raw Sound Of Burkina Faso 1974 to 1979 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Raw sound, indeed – and possibly one of the most hard-hitting compilations so far from the Analog Africa label! There's a quality here that's mighty fresh, and which shows us that there's still plenty of African nuggets to find, if you know where to dig! Much of the music has a dark, moody ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

There's no breakdown to the boogie here – as the album's overflowing with stunning sounds that are right up there with better-known club music from the early 80s – every bit as full of basslines, beats, and keyboards as the best tracks from the American scene of the period, but maybe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Comb & Razor, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
Not the usual sort of Nigerian sounds you'd hear on a collection focused on Lagos – and instead, music that was recorded far from the central city of the nation – often with a much rootsier vibe overall! These tunes still have plenty of funk and jazz in the mix, but they often come ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
