✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Upside Down (Celluloid) ... CD
Celluloid/Afrodesia, 1976. Used ... $7.99
Mindblowing work from the legendary Fela – definitely at the top of his game here, and brimming over with energy supplied by the Africa 70 ensemble! The tracks are long and freewheeling – but never without a sense of direction – as every ounce of the music is devoted to serving ... read more CD

Fela & Africa 70VIP/Authority Stealing (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Knitting Factory, 1979/1980. Used Gatefold ... $6.99
Two albums on one CD – and they both have killer long tracks that are released here in their entirey, without the cutting up that you'd get if they were split out over both sides of an album. "V.I.P." stands for "Vagabonds In Power", and the track was recorded live by ... read more CD

Friimen Music CompanyWe Can Get It On ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
These Friimen really know how to groove – but in a way that's quite unusual, as the set often has all their instruments percolating together in this quickly-syncopated mode that cooks things up at a nicely fast clip, while they throw vocals into the mix once things get moving along! There's ... read more CD

K Frimpong & His Cubano FiestasK Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas ... CD
Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 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

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

✨✧ Melvin Gibbs Elevated EntityAncients Speak ... CD
Livewired, 2009. Used ... $1.99
A far reaching set from bass & synth guru Melvin Gibbs' Elevated Entity – deftly blending Afro & Brazilian beats and rhythms with some cosmic keys, hip hop beats, and vocals that are as diverse as all of the other elements! He generates real heat on these tracks, too, a tight mix of ... (New Grooves, Global Grooves) read more CD

Group Doueh & CheveuDahkla Sahara Session ... CD
Born Bad (France), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
A bit of a change for Group Doueh – but a set that's every bit as wonderful as some of their previous work! The album has the group working with the French trio Cheveu – who add some more conventional guitars next to the snakey Saharan sounds you might expect – but never in a way ... read more CD

Elektro HafizElektro Hafiz ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Atlantic (UK), 1966. Used ... $4.99
A lost classic from reedman Joe Harriott – and a landmark blending of jazz and world music! The core of the group is that quintet of West Indian alto player Joe Harriott – one of the leading lights of the British jazz scene of the 60s, and a dedicated modernist who was as important to ...
