Cobra Rose (Korea), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A very moody, very enigmatic album from Korea – one that was recorded in 1974, but feels as if it's from the previous decade – and also has this oddly timeless sound as well! The tunes are dreamy, snakey, and served up with an undercurrent of slow funk underneath strings – almost ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Momo JosephWar For Ground ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Afro club with a very international vibe – no surprise, given that Momo Joseph was raised in Cameroon, but spent most of the 70s living in Paris – where he quickly assimilated a range of soul and funk styles to the music of his roots! The result is work with a nice sort of polish, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 22.99
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s! In a way, the whole record's a bit out of time – nothing at all ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more CD

Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $26.99
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here!

The first album by the group that later went on to become Oneness Of Juju!

A landmark album of Afro Soul! Orlando Julius was one of Nigeria's biggest soul artists in the 60s – and has been credited with virtually inventing the Afro Funk sound, and for being the inspiration to some of James Brown's funkier work of the late 60s!

Really lovely work from Gulden Karabocek – a Turkish singer in the 70s who made some really fantastic music – a cool mix of styles you might know from Arabesk rock, combined with groovier production modes that sometimes make the songs sound nice and funky!

Kah/Jazzaggression (Estonia), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Two rare grooves from Somalia – both of them great! "Majogo" has a romping style that's almost Ethio funk, but maybe a bit looser overall – nicely upbeat, and with great interplay between a female singer and a really tremendous tenor sax solo!
