Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP
EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing ...

A Nigerian soul classic from Gboyega Adelaja – an artist who spent a fair bit of time on the US scene in the mid 70s, where he clearly drank from the deep well of funk and soul!

BKOMali Foli Coura (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Buda (France), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A very cool group from Mali – one who have some of the older currents that you'd associate with the scene, but served up with a nicely contemporary crackle! The vocals often have those bluesy inflections that have risen up strongly in west Africa – but the instrumentation also has a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black DiscoNight Express ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Don't think "disco", think "funky jazz" – because this sweet South African group from the 70s is filled with lots of groovy twists and turns – all in a mode that's quite different than any of the American or European jazz albums we know from the time! The lineup ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1956/1957. Very Good ... $16.99
An incredible early experimental album from Art Blakey – one of the first to feature him in expanded percussion format!

N'Draman BlintchCosmic Sounds ... LP
Cosmic Sound/Hot Mule (France), 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A rare set of electro funk from early 80s Lagos – a set that's awash in long-spun rhythms and spacey keyboards – so much so that for years, the record was mistaken as an effort from William Onyeabor! Yet while the long songs and keys might recall some of Onyeabor's music, the overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BongaAngola 72 ... LP
Morabeza/Lusafrica (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
The sound of Angola, circa 1972 – served up here in a beautiful album of songs from Bonga! The music is relatively spare – mostly just lead acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion – the latter of which is played by Bonga himself, almost always with this lively quality that really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dollar Brand (Abdullah Ibrahim)Journey ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A landmark New York session from Dollar Brand – recorded in the late 70s, with a larger group than usual! Brand spins out some really magical African-tinged jazz grooves – stretching forth in his usual modal mode, with lots of rhythmic lines – but in a way that's also augmented ...

Americo Brito & DjaramaNha D'Stine ... LP
Mar & Sol (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the only albums ever recorded by Djarama – a group with roots in Cape Verde, but who rocked the Dutch scene of the mid 80s – where their highly rhythmic style must have been a huge hit! The approach here is a bit like some of the post-colonial acts recording in Paris around the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King Bucknor & His Afrodisk Beat OrganisationKatakata (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Shanu Olu/Hot Casa (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A really tremendous record from the Lagos scene of the 70s – a set that's completely sharp from beginning to end, and which has the same sort of side-long jamming that you'd find on the best records by Fela Kuti at the time! King Bucknor's billed as "The Black Isaiah Of Africa" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Junior ByronTrying To Hold On (original, version, Gerd Janson megamix) ... 12-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
A slow-grooving boogie number from Junior Byron – one that's got a catchy sort of back/forth rhythm, which Junior uses to nice advantage with his swinging vocals on the tune! The version brings up the riffing guitar in the rhythms, in a way that's even cooler than the original mix – ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

ChainoJungle Echoes ... LP
Omega, Late 50s. Very Good ... $22.99
Incredible stuff – and quite possibly the greatest album ever recorded by this enigmatic percussionist! The record features Chaino with his "African Percussion Safari" – not really listed on the notes individually, but (we surmise) most likely a group of studio percussionists. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
