✨✧ AkidoAkido ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
An obscure Afro Funk combo from the early 70s – produced by Ronnie Lane of The Faces, who may very well have been inspired by Ginger Baker's love of the style! The record's got some pretty heavy guitar work, and there's lots of funky rock running through the grooves – so those African-i ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Antibalas Afrobeat OrchestraLiberation Afrobeat Volume 1 (Ninja Tune) ... CD
Ninja Tune, 2001. Used ... $4.99
Amazing funk from this new Afro Beat combo! Forget that they're a bunch of young guys from New York – because the sound of this one is pure 70s Africa, with hard heavy drum work, super-tight horn riffing, spiraling keyboard lines, and some excellent guitar! You probably also know the work ... read more CD

Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late!

Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the coolest 70s albums from the mighty Manu Dibango – a rare soundtrack that's done with an even greater variety of sounds than his more conventional albums!

Buda/L'Arome (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $22.99
Amazing 70s recordings from Ethiopian singer Alemayehu Eshete – one of the greatest stars of the Ethiopiques series next to Mulatu!

✨✧ Ibibio Sound MachineIbibio Sound Machine (with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A really fresh group with a very unique sound – a combo that's partly rooted in older Afro Funk modes, but who also deliver their groove with kind of a leaner, New York street soul vibe as well! The album's cover image really gets the groove right – as the vintage is more 70s through ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Peter KingOmo Lewa (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1976. New Copy ... $18.99
A great one from Nigerian bandleader, composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter King – working in a funkier mode here than on the more jazz and roots based groove of his first record! The highlife sound is still a vital component, but on this one, Peter embraces a harder hitting approach on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 2001. Used ... $2.99
Fela's funky son is back – sounding more soulful than ever! The album's a great one – an incredibly solid effort that's light years beyond Femi's first two LPs – spanning a globe of grooves with one foot in his father's Afro Funk tradition, and another in the future of soul, hip ... read more CD

Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed!

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
A hip little album by Miriam Makeba – part South African soul, part New York hip, with arrangements that recall some of Makeba's later work, bits of Nina Simone, and touches of Uptown soul.

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaAll-Time Hits Of Hugh Masekela ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The title's a bit misleading, since the record really doesn't include Hugh's biggest hits – but it is a darn groovy batch of tight little numbers, all infused with Hugh's South African Soul riffing, and plenty of funky trumpet! Includes nice remakes of "Mas Que Nada" and "Cante ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
