K Frimpong & His Cubano FiestasK Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas ... CD
Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African ... read more CD

Fumaca PretaImpuros Fanaticos ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A wonderfully fuzzy little set – created by a group who are clearly influenced by the best sounds of Tropicalia and other hip South American rock at the end of the 60s – influences that they use strongly to forge into their own wonderful sound on this set! The album's the group's ... read more CD

✨✧ FunkeesNow I'm A Man ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A bold title statement from The Funkees – and one that's backed up with plenty of adult funky music as well – that hip blend of dubby soul that really made these guys a standout on the Nigerian scene of the 70s! The style's almost a bit like Cymande – with a head-nodding bassline ... read more CD

Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the ... read more CD

Awalom GebremariamDesdes ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 2000s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
A beautiful mix of ancient and contemporary modes – tracks that feature Awalom Gebremariam playing the Ethiopian krar, which is a lute-like stringed instrument – and the especially cool wata, which features just a single string, inflected with a bow! These elements are set to spare ... read more CD

Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion IncRitual ... CD
Omega/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Fierce funky grooves from the legendary Nico Gomez – a set cooked up in Europe, but heavy with influences from the other side of the Atlantic – from Havana all the way up to New York! There's definitely a Latin groove to the record – one that's similar to other Gomez productions ... (Latin, Global Grooves) read more CD

✨✧ Daniel GrauDisco Fantasy ... CD
Oom Dooby Dochas/Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet clubby sounds from a very obscure source – the mighty Daniel Grau, an artist who was working on the Venezuelan scene at the end of the 70s – and hardly ever got the exposure of American or European disco artists at the time! The album's way more than a fantasy – as Grau is ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish ... read more CD

Joe Harriott/Jazz At Jazz LtdIndo-Jazz Fusions I/Jazz At Jazz Ltd ... CD
Collectables/Atlantic, 1960/1967. Used ... $4.99
A strange pairing of records – one that we can't even figure out – but forgiveable enough because it brings the Indo Jazz Fusions onto the US market at a nice low price! The album's a fabulous jazz/world crossover album made by the British alto genius Joe Harriott, in tandem with John ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD
