Europa, 1978/1982. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent album from Cherry – recorded in Paris in 1978, and featuring duets with tabla player Latif Khan. The sound is spare an unencumbered by any additional backing or electronics – but there's an overall groove to the record that's really really nice. Tablas set the rhythm, and ...

Sprightly, modernist Kollywood pop from the mid 80s – beautifully sung by KS Chithra, with the boundary-busting sounds and arrangements of Ilaiyaraaja!

Private (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Quite an obscure group from the Zambian scene of the 70s – and one who've got a vibe that's maybe a bit more soulful than some of their better-known Zamrock contemporaries!

An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time!

Cool Caribbean soul from back in the day – a set that owes plenty to American modern and AOR styles of the time, but which also has its own sort of special vibe as well!

A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title!
