Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuka/Erasmo Carlos & Os TremGloria Glorinha/Coqueiro Verde ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $7.99
A sweetly dancing groover from Antonio Adolfo – a tune that has a female voice over jazzy rhythms, a lot like Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66 – but with the weirder, wilder touches that make Adolfo's music so great! The flipside features one of the funkiest cuts ever from Erasmo Carlos ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one ...

Mulatu AstatkeYegelle Tezeta/Yekatit ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
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!

AtmosfearAltered Slates ... CD
Disorient/Mr Bongo (UK), 1999. Used ... $3.99
Of all the lost club classic groups we've stocked over the years, Atmosfear has probably been the most in-demand, and has garnered a huge amount of interest for their early mix of electronics and club grooves, in a brilliantly spacey way that prefigures lots of today's techno and happy hardcore ...

Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca/Mr Funky Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards!

Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two killer slices of Brazilian funk! The instrumental "Miss Cheryl" is one of the trademark tunes of Banda Black Rio – a cut with these sharp, jazzy changes that are completely amazing – and which easily have BBR rivaling the sound of Earth Wind & Fire at their best!

BarbatuquesAyu ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies! The approach is surprisingly great – and maybe not nearly as squishy as you'd expect – as there's a clean, clear sound to the ... (Brazil) read more CD

BloChapter One ... CD
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Mindblowing sounds from Blo – easily one of the most compelling groups of the African scene of the 70s – summed up perfectly here in this really essential set! Blo began as an Afro-rock combo, but grew to have plenty of funky touches too – which means that the set's got amazing ... (Global Grooves) read more CD

Waltel BrancoAssim Na Terra Como No Ceu ... CD
Som Livre/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Some of the grooviest work ever cut by Brazilian trombonist Waltel Branco – a set that's very different than just about anything he ever put on record, and which is also material used in an early 70s TV series as well! The sound here is kind of a criss-cross between some of the cool ... (Brazil) read more CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $12.99
Two funky classics from this legendary Brazilian duo – both from their wonderful early years! "Simbarere" has a fast-moving bassline that puts most early 70s American funk acts to shame – and which is also then expanded even more nicely by loads of Brazilian percussion ...

CeliaNa Boca Do Sol/A Hora E Essa ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Celia turns in a great version of "Na Boca Do Sol" – a tune you might know from the more famous recording by Arthur Verocai, but which gets served up here in a really wonderful way – more punch in the vocals, and cool use of sax and fuzzy guitar amidst the larger majestic ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two funky Brazilian numbers from the lovely Celia – both of them great! "Zozoi Como E Que E" has a very fast-moving acoustic bassline that sets the whole thing on fire – while Celia's vocals soar over the top, and are tightly punctuated by a great horn section too!

A legendary lost album from Brazilian songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho – recorded in Brazil in the mid 70s – blending avant psychedelia, rugged acoustic rhythms, and an enormous free spirit with delicate melodic touches and lilting jazzy elements!

One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation!

Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked take on the Average White Band's "Pick Up The Pieces" – done here in a version that has all the hard funk of the original, but lots of added Brazilian touches too! The tune's an excellent example of the way that Brazilian funk in the 70s could easily blow away most ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
