VariousAfrica Airways 6 – Mile High Funk 1974 to 1981 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Soar through the skies on this sweet collection of rare African funk – the sixth volume in a series that seems to get better and better with each new release! Most of the cuts here are heavy on styles that resonate with the American scene of the late 70s – particularly the large ensemble funk modes that came on strong when the bigger US funk acts moved from the indie labels to the majors – tight, but never too smooth – and topped here with some elements that also echo other West African styles, but with a vibe that always seems to lean more towards a strong inspiration from American funk and soul! Titles include "Black Soul" by Airto Fogo, "Ngigna Loko" by Ngalle Jojo, "You" by Vicky Edimo, "Ndolo Embe Mulema" by Eko, "My Native Land" by Mike Kounou, "Be Yourself" by Akwassa, and "Kosa Mba" by JK Mandengue.

✨✧ VariousAfrica Airways 4 – Disco Funk Touchdown 1976 to 1983 (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

✨✧ VariousReturn To The Mother's Garden – More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet set of female grooves from 70s Africa – served up here in a variety of different styles, but mostly with a definite influence from American soul! Many of these tracks have great funky instrumentation – the sort that resonates strongly with mainstream R&B in the same decade, with lots of boogie and club in the rhythms – and plenty of great vocals over the top! A few tracks hit modes that are maybe more west African, yet still maintain a strongly soulful quality – and all together, this batch of tracks may make the best compilation so far from the ultra-hip Africa Seven label. Titles include "Just A Boogie" by Nayanka Bell, "Talking About Music" by Nana Love, "This Time Around" by Theadora Ifudu, "Enjoy Your Life" by Oby Onyioha, "N'Ziketio" by Diane Solo, "Lokognolo" by Bebe Manga, "Salif" by Sissi Massila, and "Nobody Can Stop You" by Christy Essien.

✨✧ VariousAfro Exotique – Adventures In The Leftfield 1972 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that definitely lives up to its title – as all the tracks are from the more exotic, unusual side of the Afro Funk spectrum – including some great 70s experiments with American soul, Cuban percussion, and even a touch of reggae too! The package is lean on notes, but has a really great array of selections – interesting tracks that break way past the usual, with titles that include "The Coffee Cola Song" by Francis Bebey, "On My Way" by Aura, "Lamento Cubano" by Amara Toure & Orchestre Massako, "Eben Reggae" by Uta Bella, "Coconut" by Dan Lacksman, "Pesse Mi Buntare" by Yta Jourais, "My Girl Reggae" by Black Reggae, "Let My Music Take You" by Nel Oliver, "L'Enfant Et La Gazelle" by Myriam Makeba, and "Soledad" by Chakachas.
