Om Alec KhaoliSay You Love Me ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1985. New Copy ... $6.99 9.99
An awesome tape from Africa, but a set that also shares lots with the American soul scene of the 80s too – as Om Alec Khaoli draws heavily on the bass and beat-heavy club sounds the time!

Karl Hector & The MalcounsUnstraight Ahead ... CD
Now Again, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $6.99 17.98
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns!

Two later moments from Zamrock legends Witch – both of which show the group moving into a much more soulful groove!

Buda (France), 2001. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
One of the rootsier CDs in the Ethiopiques series – a set of work from the Konso subculture, mostly spare numbers performed on the kihayta, a really haunting stringed instrument that's vaguely like the lyre. Most of the tracks feature the kihayta, along with vocal and percussive ... read more CD
