Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
Zeal Onyia is definitely the trumpet king here – at least of the Nigerian scene in which this album was recorded – as he blows strong solos throughout, and really brings a lot of jazz-based energy to the highlife rhythms! The use of trumpet in a smaller combo mode is really great ... read more CD

Oby OnyiohaI Want To Feel Your Love ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Oby Onyioha has a very 80s look on the cover – and the album's got a strong 80s sound, too – almost in the hipper spectrum of underground soul on the New York scene during the post-disco generation! The best cuts are the groovers – like the snapping title cut and a few others, ... read more CD

Polydor/Hive Mind (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A Nigerian album issued in the 80s, but one with a spare, solid sound that's instantly timeless – thanks to long tunes that build strongly from basslines and percussion, then layer great guitar and lyrics over the top – but all with this organic flowing vibe that's totally great! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaHappy Children ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably. In fact, it almost sounds like they've been listening to a bit of War – because the the best tracks on the album have lots of that funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaWoyaya ... CD
Decca, 1971. Used ... $6.99
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 CD

A motherlode of music from the legendary Tunji Oyelana – a key figure in Nigerian music from the late 60s onward – with an influence that's almost as important as Fela's!

A weird little record from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – much more laidback than you might expect, and a set with a definite Jamaican influence too!

An Afro-Peruvian classic, and a folkloric set that really gets at the complicated modes of the genre!

Late 70s work from Geraldo Pino – the artist who was credited as being one of the first musicians to bring the styles of James Brown to play in West Africa – still grooving hard here at the other end of the decade! The album's got a clubby vibe in parts – the "boogie" ... read more CD
