Relax In/We Want Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 33.99
A really fantastic record from the Lebanese composer Ziad Rahbani – music for a play, but a set that's also got a fair bit of bossa nova elements too!

Essiebons/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
The funky Rob way is a massive one at that – a new path into Afro Funk modes for the 70s, with a groove that's made this set a collectors classic for decades!

The title's a bit of a pun – that's "home studio", not homme studio – a reference to the fact that most of this work was recorded by 60s French pop star Henri Salvador in his own private studio – music that makes for some of the most interesting sounds in his career, at ...

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A killer set of jazz rock from early 70s Japan – and a set that's way different than Anglo albums of this nature! There's definitely a mix of horns, jazzy soloing, and electrified elements on guitar, bass, and keyboards – but the themes here are often strongly Japanese, and also ...

Really powerful music from Jose Carlos Schwarz – both a singer and a key fighter in the movement for independence in Guinea-Bissau in the 70s – so much so that he spent a few years in prison, after recording most of the work on this set! The style of the music is a bit hard to describe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
