Ezy & IsaacSoul Rock (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Heavy funk from the duo of Ezy Hart and Isaac Olashugba – a record that has way more appeal than just its Afro-styled roots – and a wicked vibe that would have been right at home in the farther reaches of the New York indie funk scene of the 70s! There's a nicely messed-up quality to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fawda TrioRoad To Essaouira ... LP
Original Cultures, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
A really unusual criss-crossing of styles – core sounds played by an Italian group who are committed to the older styles of gnawa music, in a blend of rootsy percussion, guembri, and bits of Fender Rhodes and Arp – electric elements that somehow find a way of fitting in perfectly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FelaEverything Scatter (180 gram orange vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great little record – with two brilliant side-long tracks! "Everything Scatter" is a stone 70s classic from Fela – and a cut that's maybe the blueprint for so much Afro Funk to follow – beautifully layered, with so many different elements coming into play at once, yet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Egypt '80Beasts Of No Nation (180 gram white vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the last great records from Fela – an album-long track with a very political message – delivered after the leader spent a number of years in a Nigerian jail cell, and returned to the musical world with a vengeance! Despite the late date of the track, it's still got all the raw ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Confusion/Gentleman ... CD
Barclay/MCA, Early/Mid 70s. Used ... $4.99
Really mindblowing work from Fela – a seminal 70s set that may well open up even more than any other album from the time – as the leader and Africa 70 stretch out on a single track that takes up the entire record! "Confusion" is almost proggish at the start – with a ... read more CD

Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t/He Miss Road ... CD
Barclay (France), 1975. Used ... $4.99
Amazing stuff from one of Fela's most fruitful years on this planet! There's two full albums on here, and between them, they've got 5 long Afro funky cuts in all. "Expensive Sh_t" is one of Fela's best tracks – and it's got a sinister urgent guitar-based groove that never lets up, ... read more CD

Fela & Africa 70ITT (International Thief Thief) ... LP
Barclay (France), 1980. Near Mint- (reissue)... $33.99
One of Fela's all time classics – and a biting attack on the transnational monster that was International Telephone & Telegraph in the 70s! The album's a bit different than some of the others – in that it features one long tune that runs for both sides of the wax – but that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Na Poi ... LP
Barclay (France), 1976. Very Good+ (reissue)... $33.99
One of the sexiest tunes that Fela ever cut – as you might guess from the image on the cover! The track begins with a cool spoken bit, about what man and woman get up to behind close doors – then moves into this pulsating keyboard part which is almost eerily spare, until the rest of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70No Agreement (Celluloid pressing) ... LP
Celluloid, 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A killer from the classic years, and one of Fela's best albums! "No Agreement" is a super great groover – with a catchy hook that goes on and on, and some very tasty playing by Tony Allen and the group. The track is long, with heavy solos, and vocals that will knock you out! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Opposite People/Sorrow Tears & Blood ... CD
MCA, 1977. Used ... $6.99
Monster stuff – and some killer straight-ahead afro funk jams from Fela! The set's got 2 albums on 1 CD, with stellar remastering, a great looking package – and the kind of insanely funky work you'd expect from the master. The Opposite People album has 2 long cuts – "Opposit ... read more CD

Fela & Africa 70Shakara (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The cover image here really demonstrates the charisma of Fela at his height – dozens of topless women, kneeling around the maestro and spelling out the number 70 – but to us, the music is what really shows the man's power – a bold, progressive statement of the new energy bubbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood ... LP
Barclay (France), 1977. Very Good (reissue)... $24.99
An impassioned attack on police and army violence in 70s Nigeria – and easily one of Fela Kuti's best-remembered albums of the time! The lead track – "Sorrow Tears & Blood" – is really tremendous – a wicked groove that begins with a very long electric piano ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Zombie (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
One of Fela's greatest albums – and one of the few that got any sort of international circulation in the 70s! "Zombie" shows Fela at the height of his powers – grooving away in incredibly fast, incredibly tight Afro Funk lines, weaving guitar, sax, and keyboards together with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
