Belter/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1980. New Copy ... $25.99
A funky treasure from the Spanish scene at the end of the 70s – a groundbreaking combination of flamenco roots and upbeat funk and soul! The album's got a groove that grabs you right from the start – almost like some of the tighter sound library funk of the European scenet at the time, ...

EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita (colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 12.98
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old ... read more CD

A partnership between US indie guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff of Golden – with Onyango Wuod Omari and the late Otieno Jagwasi of Nairobi based benga band Orchestra Extra Solar Africa – for an lightly funky, deeply melodic blend of hypnotic tunes! It's a true partnership – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Afrodisiac (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A stunner from Fela – a record that really leaps right into the groove right from the very first note – then never lets up at all! Igo Chiko provides some fantastic tenor sax solos on the tunes – and both Tunde Williams and Eddie Faychum serve up some killer trumpet – while ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the lesser-known 70s session from Fela – but a great one too, and a record that captures the Africa 70 group at all their early raw best! Tracks are both very long – stretching for a side of the record apiece – and the title track "Alagbon Close" features some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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 70Na Poi (180 gram clear vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the sexiest tunes that Fela ever cut – as you might guess from the image on the cover! The track begins with a cool spoken bit, about what man and woman get up to behind close doors – then moves into this pulsating keyboard part which is almost eerily spare, until the rest of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A brilliant album from Fela – and one that shows him really coming into his own, with that tremendous new sound that would go onto influence decades of musicians! The title track – "Roforofo Fight" – is a side-long jam that instantly sets a new standard for African funk ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Shakara (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The cover image here really demonstrates the charisma of Fela at his height – dozens of topless women, kneeling around the maestro and spelling out the number 70 – but to us, the music is what really shows the man's power – a bold, progressive statement of the new energy bubbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FolkswingersRaga Rock ... LP
World Pacific, 1966. Very Good ... $34.99
No folk, but plenty of raga – a really wonderful batch of Indian-styled 60s pop instrumentals – served up as a collaboration between sitar player Harihar Rao and a host of LA's grooviest session players of the time! The record's a bit like Ananda Shankhar's late 60s classic for Reprise ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Here's a group who definitely live up to their name – a damn funky 70s act from Nigeria, with a tight, righteous groove that's completely outta sight! The Funkees have an approach that's a lot more compact than Fela, and a lot more soulful than some of their more tripped-out contemporaries ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
