Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy ... $15.99 19.98
Rare work from an artist who was born in Ghana, spent time in Germany, and recorded this underground cassette-only release in Toronto during the early 90s! The music has this very odd pan-national style that references Ata Kak's Ghanian roots, but also brings in some cool electronics that must ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoAfrovision (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Creole Stream (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $23.99
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – ... read more CD

✨✧ Fela & Ginger BakerFela & Ginger Baker Live! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that pairs him with drummer Ginger Baker – formerly of Cream, and a huge supporter of Fela's music on the UK scene! Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Confusion (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A gem of a set from the legendary Fela Kuti – a classic set of Nigerian grooves produced by Ginger Baker – who was already a frequent musical partner of Fela! The set's got a sharp groove right from the start, and possibly some slighty darker elements than some of Kuti's other records ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
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

✨✧ Orlando JuliusSuper Afro Soul ... CD
Strut (UK), 1966. Used ... $12.99
A landmark album of Afro Soul! Orlando Julius was one of Nigeria's biggest soul artists in the 60s – and has been credited with virtually inventing the Afro Funk sound, and for being the inspiration to some of James Brown's funkier work of the late 60s! Julius came to the US at the end of ... read more CD

Strut (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The first new music we've heard in years from Afro Funk giant Orlando Julius – wonderfully paired here with the always-great Heliocentrics! Orlando's definitely in the lead here – singing, playing tenor, and contributing percussion to the overall groove of the group – which leans ... read more CD

✨✧ MandingoSavage Rite ... CD
EMI/Righteous (UK), 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The last album ever issued by the enigmatic studio collective Mandigo – a batch of British musicians, but recording here in the best Afro Rock mode of the 70s sound library scene! As with some of the best British projects of this nature, there's a lot of different elements at play in the mix ... read more CD

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaHugh Masekela's Next Album ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
One of Hugh's more poppy efforts, but still a nice batch of instrumentals with a good Afro soul groove to them, and the jaunty trumpet sound that was Hugh's stock in trade at the time. Tracks include "Actin' Like A Fool", "If I Needed Someone", "Sounds Of Silence", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 23.99
An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene! Hailu Mergia plays alone here – but uses lots of overdubbing to layer together Fender Rhodes, accordion solos, and a rhythm machine – all mixed up in ways ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hailu Mergia & The WaliasTche Belew ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
An amazing organ player from the Ethiopian scene – one whose work here easily rivals that of Mulatu and some of the best artists on the Ethiopiques series!

Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A sublime blend of spiritual jazz and African rhythms – and one of the few 70s recordings made by Mombasa, a European group put together by LA trombonist Lou Blackburn! The record's got a much more righteous sound than any of Blackburn's work of the 60s – a boldness and sense of pride ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
