Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.99
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70JJD (Johnny Just Drop) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
An amazing album-length jam from Fela Kuti & Afrika 70 – recorded on the group's home turf at Kalakuta, and with this stretched-out building of energy that's completely amazing!

A searing live set from Fela Kuti & Afrika 70 – a long album-length jam, recorded in Berlin – with the group really going to town in instrumental frenzy topped with very righteous lyrics!

Knitting Factory, 1976/1999. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 26.99
A really killer 70s album from Fela Kuti – one that serves up a hell of a message, and some great slinky grooves too!

Walter Gavitt FergusonLegendary Tape Recordings Vol 2 – The King Of Calypso Limonense ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Not the kind of calypso that was issued by the big American labels in the 50s – and instead, sounds that have a sound, style, and overall approach that's maybe a lot more similar to American blues from the rural scene! The tracks here are all pulled from the personal archive of Walter Gavitt ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Frikyiwa (France), 2006. Used ... $6.99
One of the more urban-oriented albums we've heard from Frederic Galliano – a set that's heavy on hip hop, dancehall, and bass-heavy elements – and one that almost offers up an African equivalent of Brazilian baile funk! The album gives strong focus to the work of the Kuduro Sound ... read more CD

A record with a new wave-looking cover – but with a sound that's a lot more acoustic overall – a really unusual blend of jazz and Balkan styles, recorded on the Vienna scene of the 80s!
