VariousAfrica Airways 5 – Brace Brace Boogie 1976 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Africa Airways takes to the skies again – and delivers a wonderful batch of funky soul tracks from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s! The work here is from a period when groups from Nigeria and other scenes were starting to absorb a lot more direct influences from American soul – especially clubbier modes of the disco generation, which were used to create a homespun variety of boogie – in a mode that really dominates this set! Lots of these tracks have upbeat vibes, tight rhythms, and strongly soulful elements in the lead – and titles include "Fine Biscuits" by Dikalo, "Angona Mana" by Mekongo President, "Chibidaba Chibidaba" by JK Mandengue, "Sugar Lump (edit)" by Tala AM, "French Girl" by Fotso, "Dashiki (inst)" by Mulamba, and "Too Young" by Jide Obe.

✨✧ VariousAfro Exotique – Adventures In The Leftfield 1972 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that definitely lives up to its title – as all the tracks are from the more exotic, unusual side of the Afro Funk spectrum – including some great 70s experiments with American soul, Cuban percussion, and even a touch of reggae too! The package is lean on notes, but has a really great array of selections – interesting tracks that break way past the usual, with titles that include "The Coffee Cola Song" by Francis Bebey, "On My Way" by Aura, "Lamento Cubano" by Amara Toure & Orchestre Massako, "Eben Reggae" by Uta Bella, "Coconut" by Dan Lacksman, "Pesse Mi Buntare" by Yta Jourais, "My Girl Reggae" by Black Reggae, "Let My Music Take You" by Nel Oliver, "L'Enfant Et La Gazelle" by Myriam Makeba, and "Soledad" by Chakachas.

✨✧ VariousReturn To The Mother's Garden – More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet set of female grooves from 70s Africa – served up here in a variety of different styles, but mostly with a definite influence from American soul! Many of these tracks have great funky instrumentation – the sort that resonates strongly with mainstream R&B in the same decade, with lots of boogie and club in the rhythms – and plenty of great vocals over the top! A few tracks hit modes that are maybe more west African, yet still maintain a strongly soulful quality – and all together, this batch of tracks may make the best compilation so far from the ultra-hip Africa Seven label. Titles include "Just A Boogie" by Nayanka Bell, "Talking About Music" by Nana Love, "This Time Around" by Theadora Ifudu, "Enjoy Your Life" by Oby Onyioha, "N'Ziketio" by Diane Solo, "Lokognolo" by Bebe Manga, "Salif" by Sissi Massila, and "Nobody Can Stop You" by Christy Essien.
