✨✧ Saka AcquayeVoices Of Africa – High-Life & Other Popular Music ... LP
Nonesuch, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Interesting album. Although most Nonesuch Explorer sessions were ethnographic ones, recorded in the field by the label's engineers – this one's a studio session, recorded in New York by a group that's reputedly from Ghana, but which seems to be kind of a "fake" one from our ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mango, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath.

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... $7.99
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!

Comet (France), 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Stunning work from superdrummer Tony Allen – light years ahead of his original Afro Beat recordings with Fela!

✨✧ Tony Allen & Afrika 70Progress ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
An Afro Funk classic – killer solo work from Tony Allen – originally known as the drummer for Fela during his key years – stepping out here on his own with the Afrika 70 band! The album's a monster all the way through – every bit as great as any of Fela's 70s classics, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
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!

Comet (France), 2000. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Excellent modern afro funk – very much in the mode of work that Tony Allen did on his Black Voices album!

AmasGrill ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... $23.99
Gbubemi Amas has a vocal approach that's right on the money sometimes, and which hits this very unusual trill at others – almost the sort of wobbly inflection you'd hear from an instrument, which makes for a very unique sound! The album's almost a soft rock or AOR take on Afro funk at times ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AssagaiAssagai (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vertigo/Prog Temple (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An excellent bit of UK Afro-Funk – recorded at the beginning of the 70s by a group that included members of the legendary South African jazz combo The Blue Notes – Dudu Pukwana on reeds, Mongezi Feza on trumpet, and Louis Moholo on drums! The record's quite different than you'd guess ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amadou BalakeSenor Eclectico – Burkinabe Dance Music Of The 70s ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A definite eclectic groove here – music that has its roots in Mandingo and Dioula rhythms, but also features a fair bit of American funk and soul touches too – sometimes in the heavy grooves on the bottom, sometimes in the rumbling basslines and guitar parts too! The collection is a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonafric/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Fantastic grooves from Sory Bamba – aka Sorry Bamba – sharp-edged, angular tracks that move at a similar pace to other late 70s Afro Funk – but with lots more weird and rough-edged touches! The recording quality isn't nearly as polished as some other efforts from the date – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
