Heshoo Beshoo GroupArmitage Road ... LP
Little Giant/We Are Busy Bodies, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A rare South African jazz treasure – a set that's much more obscure than some of the bigger names of the scene, and which has a sound that's very different too! There's maybe a stronger American influence taking place here, especially in the rhythms, but also in the phrasing – and the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Siyal (Israel), 2020. New Copy ... $12.99
Much deeper work than we're used to hearing from Kutiman – and a set that's really widened the global scope of their sounds and influences! At the start, these guys were a funk group with a mix of psychedelic and 70s Afro-oriented influences – but they've really expanded here, and ... (New Grooves, Global Grooves) read more CD

Far Eastern Sunshine (Germany), 1984. New Copy ... $5.99 16.99
A Bollywood soundtrack from the 80s generation – one that's got a style that definitely matches its decade! Tracks are long, upbeat, and joyous – in the best 70s Bollywood mode – but also feature more keyboards and drum machine rhythms, which creates this moodier quality in the ... read more CD

Andres LanderoYo Amaneci ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Andres Landero has a pretty wild look on the cover here – and the sound of his music is equally wild, too – a very raw, rootsy approach to cumbia – very much in the most hard-edged style of the genre, with a quality that often feels more ancient than the 70s recording dates of ...

PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $5.99 16.99
Jimi Lee is a hell of a studio talent here – as he handles all the arrangements and production, and also sets up load of sweet guitar lines that riff alongside the vocals of Mona Finnih & The Sensationals! That riffing guitar really gets things moving here – sometimes in a heavier ... read more CD

Really fantastic work from a group who come from a small village in Niger, but who work here with a sound that may well revolutionize the sound of sub-Saharan music!

Funkiwala (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $19.99
Vocalist Dele Sosimi joins this ultra-hip London group – a combo who are equally skilled in African and Cuban elements, hence the title of the record – and one who can also serve things up with lots of jazz-based energy as well!

Tripped-out funk from contemporary Colombia – played by a group who've clearly dug all the nation's rich legacy of groove-heavy music! The album's got a vintage feel at points – especially when the heavy drums are mixed with weirdly-distorted guitars – which almost have the feel ... read more CD

A rare bit of soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – and like some of the best of the genre, a record that's definitely got some influence from the warm Cali soul scene of the time, but which also brings plenty of its own style to play! The guitar lines have a nicely chromatic vibe, maybe ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

One of Miriam Makeba's hippest albums of all time – a set that marked the end of her association with Reprise Records, and her fame in the crossover American scene of the 60s – and for good reason, too – as the whole thing's brimming over with much more righteous energy than ever ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A bit of a mainstream effort from Makeba, as this set features more of an emphasis on pop material and standards than on some of her other records.
