Gallo/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
A fantastic set from 70s South Africa – and a record that maybe has a lot more of an American funk vibe than you'd expect! The style is nice and lean, and is often in a mode that echoes some of the cooler underground disco of the late 70s on the east coast – almost as if these cuts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Star LoversBoafo Ne Nyame (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The title proclaims "highlife is back" – but it's also pretty darn funky here, thanks to a strong dose of influence from American soul music! In fact, the highlife quality is a bit more subdued than usual – still some great guitar lines, criss-crossing in nice ways – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SurpriseBelieve Me ... LP
Beau Monde (France), 1983. New Copy ... $19.99
A wicked bit of 80s electro soul – one that's heavy on Yamaha keyboards and beats, but which was also recorded in Gabon – which gives the whole record a very different sound than New York material of the time! The rhythms are definitely in the funky soul side of the spectrum, but have ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
