✨✧ Afrosound/Wganda KenyaFiebre En La Jungla/Tipit Hayed ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1975/1985. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Loads of funky drums on "Fiebre En La Jungla" – a cut that's a remake of "Jungle Fever" by Chakachas, but done with a groove that's faster and more frenetic – even the sensual moanings by the female vocalist on the track! "Tipit Hayed" has this core rootsy ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Olli AhvenlahtiPoet ... LP
Love/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Olli Ahvenlahti's a poet on the keys – one of the most soulful players in the 70s Finland scene, heard here on one of his greatest albums ever! The record's got a glowing grace that's really wonderful – part CTI-inspired electric fusion, without as much jamming as other European work ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Amazones De Guinee/Moussa DoumbiaSamba/Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two different tracks with "Samba" as the title – both very different than the usual samba groove! Amazones De Guinee play a sweet groove with this rumbling bassline at the core, and lots of deft guitar flaring out over the top – while a female lead singer brings the groove ...

✨✧ Mulatu AstatkeYegele Tezeta/Yekatit ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest cuts ever from the legendary Mulatu – a tune that's got very heavy drums on the bottom, romping through a rhythm that's got plenty of appeal to fans of American funk – while the man himself serves up this moody organ line alongside a weird, exotic reed solo!

✨✧ Karol ConkaBatukfreak ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beat-heavy Brazilian work from Karol Conka – a set that's got some of the same urban vibe of the baile beat work of a few years back, but which also focuses the energy into a tighter, more compact R&B groove! Karol rhymes her way along the groove, but at a pace that's a bit more laidback ... (Brazil) read more CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Dave Baby Cortez and The Moon People – a lost Latin soul combo! "Happy Soul" has a similar groove to the group's more famous "Land Of Love" cut – but this version has a drum breakdown in the middle, and a cool organ solo from Dave Baby Cortez! La ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two Latin soul covers back to back – both of them great! Jack Costanzo takes on Cannonball Adderley's classic "Jive Samba" – but he slows the tune down a lot, gives it a boogaloo vibe, and lets some horns solo nicely in the middle! "Tighten Up" is the Archie Bell ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Moussa Doumbia/Amadou BalakeKeleya/Super Bar Konon Mousso ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1974/1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Moussa Dumbia is at his funkiest here on "Keleya" – a tune that's got a very James Brown-styled groove at the bottom, and some raw shouting vocals to match! The core of the cut has a bit more back-forth in more of an Afro-styled mode – but still pretty funky! "Super Bar ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alemayehu Eshete/Amadou BalakeTchero Adari Negn/Bemem Sebeb ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970/1978. New Copy ... $11.99
Two rare Afro grooves – back to back on a funky 45! "Tchero Adari Negn" is the funkiest cut we've ever heard from Alemayehu Eshete – a track with rhythms that could well be from the James Brown band, given the sharpness of the guitar, bass, and percussion all coming together ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two massive cuts from Fruko – really here at the height of his powers! "El Preso" begins with familiar Latin piano and percussion, but builds with a rawer Colombian groove as things move on – nice and heavy, and a Latin stunner throughout! "Bang Bang" has these ...

Two female tracks from Brazil – both nice and funky! "Kirie" begins with fast percussion and a bit of guitar – a nice rootsy groove that gets some excellent soulful vocals from Georgette! "Com Mais De 30" is a Marcos Valle tune, but it's done here by the lovely ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite tracks ever from the great Nico Gomez – a tune that begins with pounding piano in a bossa-styled groove, then features female chorus vocals rising with the rhythms – all with a warm style that's really wonderful throughout! "Rio" is great too – ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
