Exile OneExile One (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Disques Debs/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 26.98
The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start! The sound is lean, stripped-down, and a lot more aimed towards American soul than you'd guess from their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Celluloid/PMG (Austria), 1983. New Copy ... $5.99 16.99
Words of love from Libyan singer Ahmed Fakroun – an artist who works with some sweet 80s electro soul backings that perfectly match his look on the cover!
