✨✧ Wganda Kenya/Peter KingShalaode/Ajo ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fiercely bubbling blend of African roots and cool electronic touches – riffing guitar over the grooves, and what sounds like some sort of moogy instrument that creates these weird waves of sound underneath the powerful group vocals in the lead! Very funky, with almost a Fela-like group – and backed by the great "Ajo" from Peter King – one of his funkiest cuts, and one that almost feels like the early Fatback Band trying on a bit of Afro funk!

Antibalas Afrobeat OrchestraChe Che Cole Makossa/Che Che Cole ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2017. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Insanely fantastic work from the mighty Antibalas Orchestra! The group's really moved onto a whole new level here – covering Willie Colon's classic 70s groover "Che Che Cole", but kicking up the beats to give the track more of an African feel. This version really cooks with some wonderful Fela-like organ solo work at the start, then rolls into a smoky groove that sounds equally great with or without vocals! The "Makossa" mix is even funkier – and give the track a "Soul Makossa" undercurrent that pushes it even more! (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) 7-inch, Vinyl record
