AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first ...

Cutlass Dance BandDon't Commot Me/Obiara Wondo ... 7-inch
Academy, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
We've never been commotted – so we're not sure what it means to "Don't Commot Me" – but we can say that the tune is a wickedly sharp bit of Afro Funk, complete with some very fast-riffing guitar! The instrument's a lot more tight than on some of the looser Afro numbers of the ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

DaltonAlech/Soul Brother ... 7-inch
Habibi Funk (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
Dalton hails from Tunisia, and they've got a very groovy sound – a mix of 70s funk and some elements that almost remind us of Turkish rock – all wrapped up in a totally infectious groove on "Alech", which has a great group vocal on the cook! "Soul Brother" is a bit ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gordon Henderson & U ConventionHighest Bidder/Hard World ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Snapping grooves, tight horns, and a wicked bassline all make "The Highest Bidder" a killer bit of funk that goes way beyond the global scene – a cut to rival some of the coolest American work from the underground, but given this very unusual vocal from Gordon Henderson! "Hard ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Orchestra BaobabKelen Ati Leen/Souleymane ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Hard riffing African funk! "Kelen Ati Len" may well be the tightest tune we've ever heard from Orchestra Baobab – a really heavy-hitting number that snaps along with the energy of the best American funky 45s of the time, but which also has some wonderful chanted vocals! "Soule ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Swinging Stars Of DominicaLas Mal Parle/Jam Jam ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
There's a great romping rhythm to "Las Mal Parle" – almost a cumbia vibe, but a bit different too – as the tune's peppered by some wonderful horns, including this trombonist who really sounds like he's on fire! "Jam Jam" begins with this nicely spacey keyboard line ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A really sweet collection of grooves – titled after the Afrosound combo who lead off the set, and featuring a wealth of vintage tracks from the legendary Colombian label Disco Fuentes!
