CymandeSimple Act Of Faith ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
The first album in many years from Cymande – that ultra-cool British group who gave us a run of great funk records in the 70s! The style here is surprisingly faithful to the original Cymande sound – especially the basslines, which have this head-nodding, slow-grooving style that's ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

Manu DibangoSun Explosion ... CD
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99
A record that really shows the continuing evolution of the sound of Manu Dibango – the artist's relentless drive to move forward and keep coming up with new ways to groove! The style here is quite different than the short, stark vibe of Manu's earlier work – as the tracks are all long, ... read more CD

Dieuf Dieul De ThiesAw Sa Yone Vol 2 ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1981. New Copy ... $11.99
Incredible sounds from an obscure Senegalese group – one who burned brightly at the start of the 80s, but never issued any records at the time! Fortunately, this collection (and its previous partner) corrects that fact – and mixes together rare studio sides and one very fierce ... read more CD

Ahmed FakrounMots D'Amour ... CD
Celluloid/PMG (Austria), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
Words of love from Libyan singer Ahmed Fakroun – an artist who works with some sweet 80s electro soul backings that perfectly match his look on the cover! The vocals are mostly in Arabic, but they're set to backings that have a definite western approach – very universal in sound, with ... read more CD

Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African ... read more CD

Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
A wonderfully fuzzy little set – created by a group who are clearly influenced by the best sounds of Tropicalia and other hip South American rock at the end of the 60s – influences that they use strongly to forge into their own wonderful sound on this set! The album's the group's ... read more CD

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish ... read more CD

Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here!
