We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination!

Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/2017. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
The first installment in a series that we hope to hear from often in years to come – as it offers up new remixes of older African funk tracks from the 70s – but all in a way that crackles with the best contemporary energy of the London scene!

VariousAkwaba Abidjan – Afrofunk In 1970s Ivory Coast ... CD
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of funk from the 70s scene in Ivory Coast – music that's every bit as heavy on jazz-based solos as it is on the grooves – with some especially strong sax lines that really give the tunes a lot of soul! The music here is nice and raw, and often very stripped-down ... read more CD

Tiger's Milk (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Peruvian grooves from the heights of the Andes – but music that also resonates strongly with the hipper Latin styles of the South American scene at the time! These aren't the moody pan flute numbers that were popularized abroad in the 60s – the kinds of records that played big with the ... read more CD

Buda (France), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The first volume of Buda's excellent 5-CD overview of Angolan popular music – kind of a scaled down counterpart to the label's essential Ethiopiques series!

Buda (France), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The second volume of Buda's excellent Angola series! This collection focuses on the semba, the indigenous dance form that influenced Brazilian samba, as well as the deeply soulful lamentos akin to Cape Verdean morna, popularized in the west by the great Bonga, who appears here. The jaunty semba ... read more CD

The third volume in Buda's superb Angola series chronicles one of the country's most potent musical eras!

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A great look at the farther reaches of AOR during the glory days of the genre – not the oft-played hits that still seem to clutter the radio airwaves all these many decades later – but instead a big batch of underground tracks that serve up all the best modes of the style, but in a ...

Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 25.98
There's no breakdown to the boogie here – as the album's overflowing with stunning sounds that are right up there with better-known club music from the early 80s – every bit as full of basslines, beats, and keyboards as the best tracks from the American scene of the period, but maybe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCan't You Hear Me – African Nuggets ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 24.98
The "nuggets" in the title is very well placed here – as all the cuts here have every bit as much freak and fuzz as the American garage and pre-punk work chronicled famously on the lengendary Nuggets series! Yet these tracks are all even more obscure, and all come from African ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
