Selected Sound/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A very unusual sound library album from the German scene – a set that's maybe a lot more ethnographic than the usual stock TV and commercial grooves you'd expect – done by Victor Cavini with a fairly sensitive blend of traditional Japanese instrumentation and a few key modern elements ...

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Two rare albums from Uncle Victor Chukwu – a hell of a guitarist, and the driving force behind both of these Nigerian gems from the late 70s!

Xtra Mile (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Nicola Cruz has a very unusual style here – one that mixes percussion, wooden flutes, and some occasional contemporary production touches – almost in a way that bridges ancient musical modes and 21st Century spirits – but at a level that's always far less gimmicky than that ...
