Hugh MasekelaPromise Of A Future ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Classic work from Hugh Masekela – and the album that pushed him over the top!

✨✧ Letta MbuluFree Soul ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Free soul – and funky soul! The album's one of Letta's best ever, thanks to some nice chunky production from David Axelrod – really kicking up the groove and helping Letta hit a righteous sound that's miles past her earlier recordings. The vocals are incredible – lightly dancing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MebusasBlood Brothers ... CD
Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some ... read more CD

An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene!
