SorcerersIn Search Of The Lost City Of The Monkey God ... CD
ATA (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99
The Sorcerers return, and with a sound that's even deeper than before – a fantastic blend of funk and Ethiopian elements – but with a tightness that also resonates with some of the hipper European sound library work of the 70s! In fact, there's a mode here that's like those few special ... read more CD

Helico (UK), 2008. Used ... $14.99
Killer work from one of the hippest artists on the contemporary Afro Funk scene – Dele Sosimi, who really makes the set sparkle on both vocals and keyboards!

Dele SosimiTurbulent Times ... CD
Ekostar (UK), 2002. Used ... $6.99
An incredible set of new Afro Funk work – very much in the best style of current groups, like Antibalas or the Afro Kings – and served up in a very classic style! Dele plays keyboards and sings lead vocals – but the album burns with the strength of the entire ensemble, a tightly-k ... read more CD

Crammed, 2009. Used ... $5.99

Gallo/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic set from 70s South Africa – and a record that maybe has a lot more of an American funk vibe than you'd expect! The style is nice and lean, and is often in a mode that echoes some of the cooler underground disco of the late 70s on the east coast – almost as if these cuts ... read more CD

Gaydisc/Doctor Bird (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A seminal album in Jamaican music from Lord Tanamo – a singer with roots in calypso, but a sound that really paves the way for ska and rocksteady to come! The record's a full length set from the Gaydisc label of important early producer Sonia Pottinger – and like some of Pottinger's ... (Reggae, Global Grooves) read more CD

Phonogram/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99 11.98
The son of the legendary Ebo Taylor serves up a great record of his own – a sweet blend of funky highlife and other 70s-styled grooves – set to short cuts with a nicely compact vibe, and a cool style of production that almost owes a bit to the style of Jamaican music! There's lots of ... read more CD
