Oneness Of JujuSpace Jungle Luv ... LP
Black Fire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s! Oneness of Juju are perhaps best known for the heavy funk of their first album, African Rhythms – but we're actually partial to this second album – a warmly spiritual batch of soul jazz tracks, and a set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s!

Oby OnyiohaI Want To Feel Your Love ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
Oby Onyioha has a very 80s look on the cover – and the album's got a strong 80s sound, too – almost in the hipper spectrum of underground soul on the New York scene during the post-disco generation! The best cuts are the groovers – like the snapping title cut and a few others, ... read more CD

A legendary East African band – finally given their due on the international scene!

Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-sel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaHappy Children ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $8.99
This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably. In fact, it almost sounds like they've been listening to a bit of War – because the the best tracks on the album have lots of that funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Although Osibisa were one of the most successful of the London-based Afro-funk groups, they were also one of the best.

Island, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Later material from Osibisa, who have lost some of their harder Afro-Funk edge, and are working here more as an ensemble funk outfit, with a sound that's similar to some of the bigger American groups of the time.

OsibisaWoyaya ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
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!

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!

A sweet 70s set recorded in Lisbon, but with roots in Cape Verde – the original home of Pedrinho before he recorded this debut album at the age of 18!
