Strut (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $14.99 23.99
A legendary East African band – finally given their due on the international scene! The set's got all the sharp edges and rich charms of older work by Orchestre Les Mangelepa – but there's also a focused clarity, and maybe even a maturity of presentation that's really nice too – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ OsibisaOjah Awake ... LP
Island, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Osibisa's smoothing things up a bit by this point – going for a groove that's partially African-inspired, but which also has some mainstream Caribbean touches, and an overall approach that uses more mainstream R&B styles than on some of their previous records. The sound isn't bad, though ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaOsibisa ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
Although Osibisa were one of the most successful of the London-based Afro-funk groups, they were also one of the best. This cool first album is filled with (as the label says) "criss cross rhythms that explode with happiness". Translated, that means that the record's got lots of nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaWoyaya ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
These early Osibisa records always used to be fairly common years back – perhaps because they were always a bit too hippy dippy and loose for the older funk crowd. But now, in today's blunted groove culture, they seem to have found a new appreciation for their trippy Afro funk style, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The long-overdue return of Mustafa Ozkent – the legendary Turkish guitarist who made some very mad music in the 70s!

Pacific ExpressOn Time (with download) ... LP
World Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Warm 70s soul from Pacific Express – a South African group, but one who maybe have more of a west coast American vibe than you might expect! The music here is really well put-together – maybe on the more soulful side of the AOR spectrum, but without any of the too-polished modes you'd ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
