Early work Zimbabwe legends Hallelujah Chicken Run Band – a group that was an early showcase for the vocal talents of the equally legendary Thomas Mapfumo! The set's not just a Mapfumo showcase, though – as the sound here resonates strongly from the whole group – nice harmonies ... read more CD

Subah Zindagi (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
A disco album with a difference – given that the set was recorded in London by young Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan, and produced and arranged by Biddu – the man who gave the world the famous Biddu Orchestra records in the 70s!

Now Again, 2014. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns!

PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Sweet funky sounds from east Nigeria, circa 1980 – a great little set that's got a laidback groove, and a style that's clearly learned plenty from the hipper corners of the American funk universe! The approach is a bit like funky club at times, a bit more like some of the larger funk acts of ... read more CD

A much-needed slice of work from Juju – the group who later transformed into spiritual funk ensemble Oneness Of Juju! Juju only recorded two full albums in the early 70s, so this unissued live set is a key addition to their catalog – and the whole thing's got this bold quality that's ...

Fast funk and lots of sharp riffs from Okwess – a group with roots in the Congo, but who've risen to international fame – thanks in part to their updating of older Afro Funk modes, and the strong presence of lead singer Jupinter Bokondji! The group are clearly aware of more ... read more CD
