Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package! "Top Of The World" has this snapping sort of vibe that's like a great post-disco cut from the US – a bit of funk and club mixed together, with very cool processing on ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Francis The GreatRavissante Baby ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Surprisingly great work from an artist who was very young at the time – Paris-born Francis Mbarga, who cut this Afro groove classic when he was only 7 years old! Despite that age, though, the sound is very fully-formed – thanks to tight studio backing from a combo of sharp guitar, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the ... read more CD

A split album of incredible beauty – one side that features instrumental work and a bit of vocals from female guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali, who's got this haunting quality that's almost a west African take on John Fahey modes – in a style that's somewhat different than the usual work ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ObliqSound, 2008. Used ... $4.99
The Gilfema trio's expanded here by the addition of two horns – clarinet and bass clarinet, which are both used to shade in the album's tones nicely – expanding the range of the core guitar, drums, and bass – with slightly angular elements and a great sense of color! As before, ... read more CD
