Strut (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $28.99 29.99
Legendary reedman Idris Ackamoor is strongly back in action – working here with a new version of his classic Pyramids group from the 70s – with a groove that's every bit as righteous as their classic albums from back in the day! In truth, Ackamoor has been going strongly over the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

King Sunny AdeAura ... LP
Island, 1984. Good+ ... $4.99
The third and tightest of Ade's albums for Island. The sound here is a hybrid of his Ju Ju style with a bit of Afrobeat thrown in, with Tony Allen guesting on one number. The percolating multi-guitar and talking drum sound that was Ade's signature keeps the set gliding along nicely. 6 longer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath. Includes "Sunny Ti De Arya", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

Edip Akbayram & DostlarNice Yillara Gulum ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99
An early 80s album from Turkish legend Edip Akbayaram – served up in a style that's more keyboard-oriented than some of the guitar-based Arabesk rock of the 70s – but in a mode that's still pretty darn trippy overall! The keyboards have an approach that's maybe a bit more understated, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits/Comet (France), 1999. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $45.99 64.99
One of the coolest records in years from the legendary Tony Allen – and that's saying a lot, given that his legacy includes famous work as a drummer with Fela Kuti, and a much more recent run of very experimental recordings! This set has Tony soaring out on Blue Note – and working with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary electronic sounds from Uganda – served up here by an artist who takes older songs of celebration, and reworks them through digital modes at a blistering pace!

Agogo (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $35.99 39.98
Stunning new work from Gyedu-Blay Ambolley – whose Simigwa album was one of the Afro Funk treasures of the 70s – still sounding great here in the company of some excellent younger musicians! The set's an update of Ambolley's earlier style – a bit in the way that Tony Allen's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great little Bollywood soundtrack by one of key composers of the genre – and one that's still got all the right sort of elements you might expect! There's some really great upbeat tracks – nice groovers that even get a bit funky at times – and which have a few cool instrumental ... read more CD
