A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s! Oneness of Juju are perhaps best known for the heavy funk of their first album, African Rhythms – but we're actually partial to this second album – a warmly spiritual batch of soul jazz tracks, and a set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great early moment for the legendary William Onyeabor – music created for the film Crashes In Love – which tells the sad story of a princess who has to choose between love and money – a setting that helps make for some of Onyeabor's greatest music on record!

William OnyeaborGreat Lover ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
William Onyeabor looks like a great lover on the cover of this set – and he follows up that image with some of the slinkiest, most seductive music of his career! There's almost a dub element to the record at times – as if Onyeabor was borrowing inspiration from Kingston, and bringing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Luaka Bop, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
William Onyeabor's looking pretty chilled out on the cover – especially given the Hypertension title of the record – a cool, confident dude decked out in a velvet jacket and sombrero – able to carry off that look as well as he can carry the grooves on the set! In anyone else's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s!

Hardly a pirate album at all – and instead one of the first big global moments of fame for the mighty Orchestra Baobob – a Senegalese combo who'd really been honing their craft during the 70s! The album has the group working with all the soulful currents of their early work – and ... read more CD

An amazing classic from Orchestra Baobab – one of those records that reminds us why the group were always so different than anyone else! Some of the rhythms are familiar, but the execution is very unique – chopped up at times, so that the grooves are a perfect mix for the angular tenor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great return to form for Orchestra Baobab – a group who really shone on the Senegalese scene in the 70s, but disbanded right as they were hitting global fame – eventually reuniting around the time of this album, thanks to demand from listeners around the world!

These early Osibisa records always used to be fairly common years back – perhaps because they were always a bit too hippy dippy and loose for the older funk crowd. But now, in today's blunted groove culture, they seem to have found a new appreciation for their trippy Afro funk style, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s!
