Bheki MselekuBeyond The Stars ... LP
Tapestry Works (UK), 2003. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99 44.99
A fantastic album from South African pianist Bheki Mseleku – a set of solo work, and done with a vibe that's a bit different than some of his ensemble material of the time!

Mad funk from Ethiopia – classic work by the legendary Mulatu, one of Africa's heaviest artists of the 70s!

Mike Nyoni & Born FreeMy Own Thing ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 19.98
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 CD

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
