Afro FunkBody Music ... CD
Kabana/Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy ... $15.99
They're not kidding with the name of this group – because the set's a masterpiece of 70s Afro Funk – totally great all the way through! The combo has African origins, but they're recording here in London – which makes for a really wonderful criss-crossing of cultural modes – ... read more CD

Afro Latin Vintage OrchestraPulsion ... CD
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
A darker groove than usual from this hip European combo – a record that still has their commitment to global sounds at its core, but which also comes across with these great 70s electric modes too – almost echoes of Dark Magus Miles Davis and Sextant Herbie Hancock – thanks to ... read more CD

Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram Ve Dostlar – Singles Overview 1974 to 1977 ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Rare singles from this ultra-cool Turkish singer – including many tracks that are b-sides of vintage 45s, and maybe even trippier than the album material we've heard before! The work was recorded in the mid 70s, but there's much more of a late 60s vibe going on here – from the trippy ... read more CD

✨✧ Edip Akbayram & DostlarNice Yillara Gulum ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99
An early 80s album from Turkish legend Edip Akbayaram – served up in a style that's more keyboard-oriented than some of the guitar-based Arabesk rock of the 70s – but in a mode that's still pretty darn trippy overall! The keyboards have an approach that's maybe a bit more understated, ... read more CD

Kamuran AkkorKamuran Akkor ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of ... read more CD

✨✧ AmanazAfrica ... CD
QDK (Germany), 1975. Used ... $6.99
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a ... read more CD

AntibalasWho Is This America? ... CD
Ropeadope, 2004. Used ... $5.99
The most outwardly political album to date from Antibalas – and quite possibly the funkiest one too! The set's got the group really grooving hard in their 70s Afro Funk-inspired vein – jamming at a level that would make Fela Kuti blush – working together with a fierce array of ... read more CD

Rosa Celeste (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $18.99
One of the coolest records in years from the always-creative Arnaldo Antunes – a trio effort that has him working with Toumani Diabate and Edgard Scandurra – in a pan-Atlantic set of sounds that's really amazing! Antunes' creative approach to songwriting is very much in place – ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more CD

Daby BaldeLe Marigot Club Dakar ... CD
Riverboat, 2009. Used ... $7.99
Melodic material from Senegal's Daby Balde – inspired by Dakar's Le Marigot club, where Balde regularly performs – and a nice set of voice, hypnotic strings and rhythms – with spirited and soulful lead and female backing vocals. The ringing tone of the guitars sound great to us, ... read more CD

Dao BandonKon Kee Lang Kwai (Man Or Water Buffalo) – Essential Dao Brandon ... CD
EM/Paradise Bangkok (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
With a singer this obscure, you might take the word "essential" in the title a bit loosely – but the set is a stunning batch of work from this popular Thai vocalist of the 70s! Dao Bandon's voice is amazing right from the start, even if you can't understand the language (although ... read more CD
