✨✧ Tony Allen & Afrika 70Jealousy ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s! Fela and his group (Afrika 70) are still working with Tony here, and Fela lays down some tenor and piano solos – but make no mistake, it's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tony Allen & Afrika 70No Accommodation For Lagos (Japanese version) ... CD
Coronet (Japan), 1979. Used ... $19.99
Pivotal Afro Funk tracks from Tony Allen – a masterpiece! Allen is recording here as the leader of the Afrika 70 group, but with Fela in the band, and handling production chores as well. The groove is very similar to Fela's, but with the drums higher in the mix, and a bit more of an ... read more CD

✨✧ Tony Allen & Afrika 70Progress ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
An Afro Funk classic – killer solo work from Tony Allen – originally known as the drummer for Fela during his key years – stepping out here on his own with the Afrika 70 band! The album's a monster all the way through – every bit as great as any of Fela's 70s classics, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tony Allen & The Afro MessengersNo Discrimination ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Tony Allen steps out onto his own – moving away from the Afrika 70 group who accompanied him on his first three solo albums – nicely cooking here into a whole new groove! The tracks are a bit shorter than the side-long jams of previous records, but no less funky – as Tony somehow ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ApostlesApostles ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic funk from The Apostles – a group who were easily one of the most hard-hitting on the African scene of the 70s – and one who definitely absorbed key currents from a range of American artists – from James Brown through Booker T & The MGs! The groove here is totally ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vertigo/Prog Temple (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
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 CD

Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization!

Turkuola/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1976. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Psychedelic folk-rock from the Turkish scene of the 70s – a real criss-crossing of styles, carried off with strong emotive effect by protest singer Selda! There's a powerful sound here that's completely without referent, but immediately gripping – a blend of familiar and strange ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teranga Beat (Senegal), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
A haunting little record that's way more than the romantic tunes you'd guess from the title – as Yishak Banjaw is a really fantastic keyboard player – and works with sounds here that sound more like outerspace electronics than any love songs we've ever heard! There's definitely ... read more CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies!

Analog Africa (UK), 1997. New Copy ... $18.99
An album with a very unusual vibe – one that showcases the Cape Verdean style of funana – a fast-moving groove that features accordion in the lead! That instrument is played here by Bitori – who was 57 years old at the time of the recording, but plays with the deft energy of a ... read more CD
