Rim Kwaku Obeng & The BelieversToo Tough/I'm Not Going To Let You ... CD
Sum Sum/BBE (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Wonderfully groovy work from Rim Kwaku Obeng – an artist with African roots, but working here in the San Francisco scene of the early 80s – where he's clearly picked up a very international vibe in his music! Rim definitely plays some traditional percussion on the tracks, but there's ... read more CD

✨✧ Goddy OkuOne More Chance ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
A very cool record from Goddy Oku – who's pictured on the back cover working the knobs on a big studio console – definitely making sure that he gets his hand in the way the album's put together! There's an offbeat funky vibe to most of these tracks – almost a mode that recalls ... read more CD

Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s! Oneness of Juju are perhaps best known for the heavy funk of their first album, African Rhythms, but we're actually partial to this second album – a warmly spiritual batch of soul jazz tracks, filled with life, ... read more CD

An incredible legacy in music – presented here in a really wonderful package! For years, the music of William Onyeabar has been the stuff of legend, but only accessible to a few who could get their hands on scarce original pressings – but that lack has really been corrected by this ... read more CD

Because (France), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
Great work from the legendary Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo – a group who've lost none of their power over the years, and who bristle with as much energy here as on their classic albums of the 70s! In fact, there may well be a more-classic vibe going on here, compared to the group's sound as it ... read more CD

Tucxone (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
An action-packed Afro Jazz and psych funk trip from Outer Space – a Catalan group who'd only been traveling the spaceways for a couple years leading up to this stellar set, but has the instinctive grooves and masterful interplay of a veteran act – all the more impressive given that the ... read more CD

PeaceBlack Power ... CD
Copperbelt/Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A really raw set from 70s Africa – one that's more rock than Afro Funk, but which has a pretty hypnotic groove overall! The group's heavy on guitars, which are often played in a fuzzy, jamming sort of way – but with different tones and phrasing than American or Anglo psyche groups ... read more CD

A lost chapter from the late 60s/early 70s Ghana scene – a great mix of African rhythms & melodies with the raw grit of garage rock, the heavy groove of funk and soul, the swirling and fuzzed out guitars and organ of psychedelia – the Psycho African Beat of The Psychedelic Aliens! ... read more CD

Quantic Presents Flowering Inferno1000 Watts ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A dubbier set than even before from Quantic and his Flowering Inferno project – a record that's still quite heavy on the range of Caribbean elements he blended with funk on the previous two albums, but one that also seems to draw a bit more strongly from the sound of Kingston overall!
