Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Incredible work by Randy Weston – light years ahead of his trio material from just a few years before!

Sweet Cambodian pop from the 80s – recorded by two artists who'd emigrated to Portland, then issued this album only on cassette back in the day!

Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Freaky funk in a variety of flavors – tunes that are every bit as groovy as the material we heard on the previous two volumes of the Africa Airwaves series – but maybe a bit trippier too!

VariousAgrim Agadez – Musique Guitare De La Republique Du Niger ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful collection of contemporary guitar work from Niger – as you might guess from the title – mostly songs in an acoustic mode, and captured in a very spare setting that really lets you hear the inflections of the different musicians!

Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99

The set's billed as "the perfect soundtrack to chill on the beach", but it's way more than that – and besides, when we always used to go to the beach, all the radios were always blaring classic rock or mainstream pop – and this collection is way way deeper than that!

A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene!
