✨✧ CymandePromised Heights (180 gram pressing) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Janus, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Cymande hit some well-deserved heights on this massive third album – working with a complicated groove that's even more compelling than their earlier albums – in a righteous blend of heavy bass and tripped-out guitars that's unlike anything else we've ever heard! The music's a unique ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Heavy bass, tight percussion, and a wonderfully trippy groove – the stunning second album from Cymande, and one of our funk favorites from the 70s! These guys have a sound that's completely unique – a vibe that mixes African and Jamaican influences up in the heady London scene of the ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DadawahPeace & Love ... LP
Dug Out (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism! It's very unique stuff, ... (Reggae, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vicky EdimoThank U Mama (with bonus download) ... LP
Afrodisia (Nigeria), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An Afro Funk set with a very special vibe – a bit different than some of the other work of the time, and a standout performance from singer/instrumentalist Vicky Edimo! Vicky's a he, in case you didn't know (we didn't) – and his touch on percussion and keyboards is nicely moody in all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Gilberto GilRefavela (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more CD

✨✧ Charly KingsonBorn In Africa (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A great little groover by an artist who may have been born in Africa, but who works here on the Munich scene of the 70s – with help from a surprisingly strong jazz lineup that includes Benny Bailey on trumpets, Sal Nistico on tenor, and the mighty Klaus Weiss on drums, keyboards, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Drift (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
A great tribute to Fela Kuti from saxophonist Bukky Leo – a player with Nigerian roots, but who's been working on the London scene for decades – with music that goes back to some key early records for the Acid Jazz label, and some great releases in more recent years! Here, Leo takes on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MabrakDrum Talk ... LP
Dug Out (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99
The drum talks on the record, but so do the basslines – which get lots of work to set the scene for the wonderful percussion work of Leroy Mabrak Mattis! The record's one of the most unusual to come out of the Kingston scene in the 70s – a bit in the rootsy territory of work by the ... (Reggae, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MandukaManduka ... LP
IRT/Ascensionale (Belgium), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $46.99
Soulful sounds from 70s Chile – and a record that easily rivals some of the best acoustic work from the post-Tropicalia generation in Brazil! Manduka's got a heady sound that's very much in keeping with his image on the cover – a freer sort of approach to the music than the decade ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
