Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP
EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

A Nigerian soul classic from Gboyega Adelaja – an artist who spent a fair bit of time on the US scene in the mid 70s, where he clearly drank from the deep well of funk and soul!

Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists!

BKOMali Foli Coura (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Buda (France), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A very cool group from Mali – one who have some of the older currents that you'd associate with the scene, but served up with a nicely contemporary crackle!

PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – thanks to a strong embrace of funky boogie styles, but served up here with a sweet Nigerian twist! Some cuts are heavy funk right from the start – clearly inspired by Kool & The Gang and other sharp-edged American groups of the 70s ... read more CD

PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Their name may be a mouthful, but the Black Children Sledge Funk Band have a groove that's nice and lean – a wicked blend of basslines, percussion, and lots of riffing guitar – plus these very cool keyboards that wander over the grooves and give the whole thing a sweetly spacey vibe! ... read more CD
