Costeno/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A Colombian record from the start of the 80s, but one that's got a very different vibe than most from the time – almost more lean and stripped-down – at a level that goes back to the roots of champeta, but which also brings in all these other strange touches too!

A set recorded in Detroit, but one that's got a globe's worth of elements in the mix – originally recorded in the mid 80s, but not released until a brief CD issue in the early part of the 21st Century!

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 ...

Rare 70s work from Don Cherry, and one of the most perfect realizations of his organic music concept – a quartet session recorded for Italian broadcast, with long songs that have a very spun-out, meditative vibe!
