Cool KnightsBana Mulenga ... LP
Private (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Quite an obscure group from the Zambian scene of the 70s – and one who've got a vibe that's maybe a bit more soulful than some of their better-known Zamrock contemporaries! The octet have a great way of trading voices back and forth with their grooves – in a mode that's almost South ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Erick Cosaque/Voltage 8Kaloukera Percussions EP ... LP
Sofrito (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $9.99
Heavy drums and forward-moving grooves – music that's definitely got all the percussion promised in the title, and focused with an energy that might almost work in a contemporary club setting too! Make no mistake, there's nothing electric or programmed here – just heavy percussion, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Count Ossie & Mystic Revelation Of RastafariGrounation (3LP set) ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), 1972. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $37.99 39.98
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... (Reggae, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrystalMusic Life ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Cool Caribbean soul from back in the day – a set that owes plenty to American modern and AOR styles of the time, but which also has its own sort of special vibe as well! The production is tight, but never too slick – and the tunes have this extended, open flow that makes for some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CymandePromised Heights ... LP
Janus, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Cymande hit some well-deserved heights on this massive third album – working with a complicated groove that's even more compelling than their earlier albums – in a righteous blend of heavy bass and tripped-out guitars that's unlike anything else we've ever heard! The music's a unique ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CymandeSecond Time Round ... LP
Janus, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
Heavy bass, tight percussion, and a wonderfully trippy groove – the stunning second album from Cymande, and one of our funk favorites from the 70s! These guys have a sound that's completely unique – a vibe that mixes African and Jamaican influences up in the heady London scene of the ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CymandeSimple Act Of Faith ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
The first album in many years from Cymande – that ultra-cool British group who gave us a run of great funk records in the 70s! The style here is surprisingly faithful to the original Cymande sound – especially the basslines, which have this head-nodding, slow-grooving style that's ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

Azna De L'AderZabaya ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A real freakout of a record – played by a band who must have been one of the headiest acts in Niger during the 70s! That nation's not nearly as well-known for psychedelic acts as some of the other African scenes of the time – but Azna De L'Adner can easily stand with the best of them ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoAfrovision ... CD
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – ... read more CD

✨✧ Manu DibangoElectric Africa ... LP
Celluloid, 1985. Very Good+ ... $11.99
While we have more or less dismissed a lot of the Celluloid world music productions from the 80s in the past, we look back now and realize that was pretty much just purist snobbery. This Laswell produced album of funky afro grooves doesn't have the same hard African funk that we dig so much about ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
