Jose MancliereDoubout Pou Gade ... LP
JMD/Digger's Digest (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
An album that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – served up by a percussionist who spent the mid 70s touring the Caribbean and South Pacific, and who seems to have absorbed a globe's worth of rhythms in the process! The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ze Manel & 2M GBTustumunhos Di Anonti (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cobiana/New Dawn (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
You might know Ze Manel as a member of Super Mama Djombo – but here, he comes across on a set of tracks that are even more personal, yet still highly rhythmic overall! There's a criss-crossing of elements in the tunes that's really great – lots of back/forth rhythms, sewn together by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Manhattan BrothersOut Of Africa – Always Something New ... LP
Joy, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
An early album of South African soul – cut by Johannesburg's Manhattan Brothers, and issued in the US on Joy Records! The set's pretty darn great – a mixture of soulful and folksy touches, with lively larger arrangements that mix in percussion and flute to give the work a bit of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing. Cover has masking tape holding the seams, wear and aging, and a fair amount of stuck-on paper on back.)

Better Days/Everland (Austria), 1983. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderfully groovy set from the early 80s Japanese scene – a record that's maybe got a lot more cultural strands criss-crossing than some of its contemporaries! The cover looks a bit psychedelic, and the sound is maybe a bit too – but with the sorts of early 80s keyboards and ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more CD

Gallo/Mr Bongo (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A really unusual album from the South African scene of the 80s – served up by a blind quartet who partly echo the styles of other vocal ensembles of the period, but done with a mish-mash of styles that really keeps the whole thing interesting! The album's maybe best-remembered for a few ... read more CD

Hugh MasekelaColonial Man ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Sealed ... $11.99
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

It's a strange thing to see Hugh Masekela sitting on a horse, out in a field – and the cover hardly gets at the energy that's going on inside – since the album features a full, funky live performance from the famous trumpeter – at a time when his group included piano and keyboards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, Late 60s/1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $49.99
Back before he was found floating face-down in a swimming pool, ex- (or late-) Stones member Brian Jones put together this landmark bit of trippiness for the Rolling Stones label. Although the music is largely ethnographic, the whole thing's got this neo-colonialist hipster edge to it – as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arsivplak (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A very groovy little record – one that was only ever issued in Denmark, but which stands up strongly next to the best Turkish grooves of the 70s – thanks to a great blend of Turkish percussion, keyboards, and some mighty nice work on guitar! The guitars aren't as totally exotic as some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
