Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $49.99 55.98
Wonderfully trippy sounds from Mike Nyoni – one of the funkier talents in the Zamrock scene of the 70s – even though he also works with lots of the slight psychedelic touches of other contemporaries too! Mike's style on guitar is a bit too loose to be funk, but it's also got this nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

West Side Latino/Fania, 1972. Used ... $11.99
The rare first album by Ocho – and a killer batch of Latin tracks that breaks down all definitions of the music! Ocho were a seminal group in the NuYorica scene of the early 70s – blending soul, funk, Latin, jazz, and other styles into a groove that was perhaps a bit too complicated ...

Danny Offia & The FriksFunk With Me ... CD
PMG (Austria), Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
An early 80s set from the Lagos scene – and one that's about as far from the Afro Funk sound of the 70s as that city is from New York! Instead of full-on ensemble styles, Danny Offia has this nice lean groove – basslines that bump with a wickedly catchy sound, laced with keyboard solos ... read more CD

Roulette, 1986. Near Mint- ... $7.99
It's the mid 80s and Mickey Hart's behind the production on this album, so you know it has a slick, glossy touch all over it, with a very "world music" approach. But the beauty of Olatunji's playing and subtle complexity of the rhythms trump the flashy approach. The lineup is huge, with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1962. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Perhaps Olatunjii's best album for Columbia, best because the tracks are a bit longer, with more variation, and they've got more of a jazzy feel than on some of his other LPs. Clark Terry on trumpet and Hosea Taylor on alto sax join the group as soloists – giving the album a bit more of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OlatunjiZungo! – Afro Percussion ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Olatunji's best LPs, and a record that breaks out of his usual straight hard percussion stuff by adding some jazz players like Yusef Lateef, Clark Terry, and George Duvivier. There's also some singers augmenting the ensemble, but they drop out in parts, and the percussion and jazz take over. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
