New Tony AllenFilm Of Life (180 gram vinyl – with bonus tracks) ... LP LP format
Jazz Village (France), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Maybe the best album we've heard from Tony Allen in years – a really compelling set that still holds onto all the elements we love in his music, but which also introduces all these great other bits as well! The sound's never unfocused or confused – and instead, it kind of allows Allen ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Francis BebeyPsychedelic Sanza 1982 to 1984 ... CD CD format
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists!

Popular African Music (Germany), 1977. Used ... $19.99

One of Fela's all time classics – and a biting attack on the transnational monster that was International Telephone & Telegraph in the 70s!
