Matao with Atilla EnginTurkish Delight ... LP
Arsivplak (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A very groovy little record – one that was only ever issued in Denmark, but which stands up strongly next to the best Turkish grooves of the 70s – thanks to a great blend of Turkish percussion, keyboards, and some mighty nice work on guitar!

Mighty FlamesMetalik Funk Band ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The Mighty Flames never sound too metallic here – at least not in any way that's cold or harsh, or heavy metal too!
