Mississippi/Little Axe, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A Peruvian singer with a very unique sound – recorded in a style that has her lovely voice lilting out over Andean harps and a bit of percussion – all in a mode that feels a lot more timeless than you might expect for a session from 1981!

Vaudou GameKidayu (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A contemporary combo from Togo, but one who've got a hard-riffing sound that takes us back to the James Brown band of the late 60s – which is then mixed with a lot of sweet touches of their own, to create one of the freshest strands of Afro Funk we've heard in years! These guys are hardly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
