Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

Obey (Nigeria), 1988. Very Good- ... $6.99
We have to be honest, we know a little bit about African music, but not a lot. So when we come across some nice African recordings, we scoop them up and put them online, but rather than insult those of you out there who know and love this stuff, we'll just list them at what we consider to be a fair price without trying to describe them, and are confident you fans of the real deep African grooves will be able to know what you're looking at. This album features 9 tracks, including "Generation To Generation", "Omi T'Aba Da S'Ori", "Vanity Upon Vanity", "Odomode E Mas Ja", "Aso Ija Mi Ti G Bo", "Ola Oluwa Ni Mo Nje", "I Am For Joy", "Binubinu Ko Ma Binu" and "Association Of Friends".

Penny PennyYogo Yogo ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The strong second album from Penny Penny – a set that has the South African singer emerging as even more of a superstar than before – as you might guess from his look on the cover! The style is this unique blend of older South African vocal modes with more contemporary club elements – particular some of the deeper bass bits introduced by the house music generation – used here in ways that are slower than house, but definitely echo the same way – especially with the lower-end pulsations of the keyboard! Penny Penny has this very commanding way of calling out a tune – the sort that made him a big draw across the African concert scene during the decade – on titles that include "Yogo Yogo", "Ibola Aids", "Ingani", "Amarumasi", "Ama Owners", "Ti Samboko", and "Kulani Kulani". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Yogo Yogo ... CD 12.99
