Freedom FamilyFreedom Family (with bonus download) ... LP
Academy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A fantastic funky combo from the mid 70s African scene – one who worked previously with Geraldo Pino, and who definitely show some traces of his own great work too – but who also have a madly great groove that's all their own! Freedom Family are definitely on the funkier side of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkeesPoint Of No Return (French cover) ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1975. New Copy ... $15.99
The fantastic first album from The Funkees – a Nigerian group, but one who also spent a good deal of time on the London scene – and who work here in a freaky, fuzzy, funky style that we might put somewhere in the same space as music by Demon Fuzz or Cymande! Like both of those groups, ... read more CD

Gilberto GilRefavela (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Le Chant Du Monde/Super Sonic Jazz (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
A groundbreaking set of work from the team of Jef Gilson and Hal Singer – a uniquely cross-cultural session recorded in the Paris scene of the 70s, and easily some of the best work ever from both musicians! Singer's probably best remembered on these shores for his older R&B tenor work of ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

GrottoAt Last ... CD
Odion Livingstone (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of the most unusual groups we've heard from the Lagos scene of the 70s – a combo who definitely have a bit of funk in their style, but also a pretty trippy sound too – one that seems to draw from some of the headier sounds in the UK from a few years before – maybe folk-funk, ... read more CD

A wonderfully funky set from this hip Nigerian group of the 70s – a set that's a lot more soulful than their trippy first album – and done with a range of great grooves overall! The instrumentation here is focused on the core talents of the combo – with lots of riffing guitar ... read more CD

PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A wonderful fusion of traditional roots and contemporary funk – handled perfectly by this legendary Gambian band! The groove is unique – with earthy percussion and haunting vocals mixed with more 70s-styled funk instrumentation – but often in a way that's as interested in sonic ... read more CD

Gunesh might look a bit unusual on the cover – like some crazy mountain folk who've somehow gotten ahold of band instruments – but on the album, they've got this tight funky sound that's mighty nice – yet which is also still as unusual as their look!

Artomax (Puerto Rico), Mid 70s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $18.99
A very cool combination of folksy elements and jazzier styles – almost like some of the more sophisticated records that came from Havana at the end of the 60s! These guys do a wonderful job of mixing percussion, guitar, and flute with some warmer keyboards and other more modern touches ... (Latin, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
