Groundbreaking work from Busi Mhlongo – a real shift in South American soul at the end of the 90s, almost as if the set was marking the new sense of pride and nation that was taking place at the tip of the continent!

National/Modern Harmonic, 1963. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99

Joe MoksBoys & Girls ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
The music of Joe Moks has a nice sing-song feel here – a vibe that's almost more reggae than you'd expect from her Nigerian roots – but with an offbeat style that's also not like anything that might have come from Kingston!
