RCA, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant mix of jazz and world music!

Strut (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Legendary reedman Idris Ackamoor is strongly back in action – working here with a new version of his classic Pyramids group from the 70s – with a groove that's every bit as righteous as their classic albums from back in the day!

King Sunny AdeAura ... CD
Island, 1984. Used ... $6.99
The third and tightest of Ade's albums for Island. The sound here is a hybrid of his Ju Ju style with a bit of Afrobeat thrown in, with Tony Allen guesting on one number. The percolating multi-guitar and talking drum sound that was Ade's signature keeps the set gliding along nicely. 6 longer ... read more CD

Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too!

Tony Allen & Afrika 70No Accommodation For Lagos (Japanese version) ... CD
Coronet (Japan), 1979. Used ... $19.99
Pivotal Afro Funk tracks from Tony Allen – a masterpiece! Allen is recording here as the leader of the Afrika 70 group, but with Fela in the band, and handling production chores as well.

Tony Allen steps out onto his own – moving away from the Afrika 70 group who accompanied him on his first three solo albums – nicely cooking here into a whole new groove!
