✨✧ Saka AcquayeVoices Of Africa – High-Life & Other Popular Music ... LP
Nonesuch, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Interesting album. Although most Nonesuch Explorer sessions were ethnographic ones, recorded in the field by the label's engineers – this one's a studio session, recorded in New York by a group that's reputedly from Ghana, but which seems to be kind of a "fake" one from our ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ King Sunny AdeJuju Music ... LP
Mango, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath. Includes "Sunny Ti De Arya", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AssagaiAssagai (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vertigo/Prog Temple (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An excellent bit of UK Afro-Funk – recorded at the beginning of the 70s by a group that included members of the legendary South African jazz combo The Blue Notes – Dudu Pukwana on reeds, Mongezi Feza on trumpet, and Louis Moholo on drums! The record's quite different than you'd guess ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sory BambaSory Bamba Du Mali ... LP
Sonafric/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Fantastic grooves from Sory Bamba – aka Sorry Bamba – sharp-edged, angular tracks that move at a similar pace to other late 70s Afro Funk – but with lots more weird and rough-edged touches! The recording quality isn't nearly as polished as some other efforts from the date – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BCUC (Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness)Our Truth ... LP
Nyami Nyami, 2017. New Copy ... $21.99
A fantastic little record, and one that's a nice change from some of the overdone Afro Funk modes out there – as these guys come together more as a spiritual collective, with a righteous power that maybe even recalls some of the great 70s experiments of drummer Roy Brooks – especially ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John BerberianOud Artistry (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Groovy Eastern sounds from John Berberian – a musician we know from more rockish projects, but who steps out here on a relatively traditional set of tunes! As you'd guess from the title, Berberian's instrument is the oud – that weird stringed instrument we probably know best from Ahmed ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kostas BezosWhite Birds (with bonus CD) ... LP
Mississippi, 1930s. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful use of Hawaiian guitar in early Greek 78rpm recordings – an amazing musical journey that's even more fascinating than the use of the instrument in American country music! The instrument here is the acoustic version of steel guitar, and is often played alongside other more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black Children Sledge Funk BandBlack Children Sledge Funk Band Vol 3 – Aviation Grand Father ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Their name may be a mouthful, but the Black Children Sledge Funk Band have a groove that's nice and lean – a wicked blend of basslines, percussion, and lots of riffing guitar – plus these very cool keyboards that wander over the grooves and give the whole thing a sweetly spacey vibe! ... read more CD

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterRed Earth – A Malian Journey ... CD
Universal, 2007. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most creative albums we've heard from Dee Dee Bridgewater in years – a set of tracks recorded with a host of Malian artists – in a unique cross-cultural mode that's unlike anything else Dee Dee has ever recorded! The core style here is still very firmly rooted in Bridgewater' ... (Vocalists, Global Grooves) read more CD

✨✧ RD BurmanHare Rama Hare Krishna ... CD
Far Eastern Sunshine (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
The mighty RD Burman is at the height of his powers here – crafting a Bollywood soundtrack that has an even moodier, groovier feel than usual – with some currents that even link the music towards some European film score styles of the time! Tracks are shortish, and definitely have the ... read more CD

✨✧ Count Ossie & Mystic Revelation Of RastafariGrounation (3LP set) ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), 1972. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $37.99 39.98
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... (Reggae, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy 3LP pressing!)
