Comb & Razor, Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Insanely wonderful work from Shango Dance Band – a group headed by onetime Fela Kuti bandmate Ojo Okeji – whose bass work here is worth the price of admission alone!

Ravi ShankarRaga – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Apple, 1971. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Groovy batch of ragas from the soundtrack to this film about Ravi Shankar. We've never heard of the film, but given that the whole thing's very lovingly packaged by Apple – with a good booklet and everything – you almost don't need to see the movie. George Harrison headed up the whole ... (Soundtracks, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tak ShindoMganga! ... LP
Edison/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
A fantastic bit exotica from Tak Shindo – quite rootsy at times, in a way that really lives up to the cover – and which makes the whole thing a lot more striking than Shindo's other big album on Capitol at the time! The instrumentation is filled with heavy percussion and rhythms, often ... (Now Sound, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

SookieSookie ... LP
Disques D'Esperance/African Road Trip (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A really great bit of Afro Funk from the 70s – recorded by a group with relatively obscure origins, but a pretty heavy duty sound! The album's a project from Jo Bisso, who later went onto some great Afro-styled club fame – but this set is much more deep funk overall – with lots ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Strut (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $21.99
Hard to resist the groove of a group this great – one of the longer-running Afro Funk combos around, and one of the best too!

Steel ImageSteel Image ... LP
Fontana, 1970. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A great steel band record, pretty much all covers and just about all funky, too! Like a lot of the groups updating the Carribbean sound with touches of rock, soul and funk, these guys seemed to have their brief moment, then just about completely disappear. There's vocals on some of the tracks, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A killer bit of funk from mid 70s Tanzania – performed here by a group who never got the same international exposure as some of their contemporaries, but who really made some magic on their local scene!

Analog Africa (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Funky and trippy at the same time – a wonderful batch of grooves from Super Borgou De Parakou – an overlooked group from Benin with a very unique sound!

Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98

Importe, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A surprisingly soulful mix of disco grooves and Afro Funk influences – performed by this Italian group who were one of the better exports of that country's often-trashy disco scene.
