Strut (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A tremendous return to form for reedman Idris Ackamoor and his Pyramids group – and a record that we love every bit as much as his classic material from the 70s!

A beautiful record from Akofa Akoussah – a singer from Togo who's equally gifted in funky and sweeter soul styles!

An uber-rare album from Orlando Julius & The Afro Sounders – recorded at Ginger Baker's studio in Lagos and originally (apparently quite scarcely) released by Philips in 1973 – wonderful stuff and on par with the excellent material the group recorded in the handful of previous years! ... read more CD

Kaleta & Super Yamba BandMedaho ... CD
Ubiquity, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
That's a pretty trippy cover on the front, and an image that really sums up the vibe of this excellent record from Kaleta – a set that's even sharper and funkier than any of his previous efforts – yet which has some nicely way out qualities too! The instrumentation is heavy on elements ... read more CD

Dick KhozaChapita ... CD
Sun/Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the hippest bits of funk we've heard from the South African scene of the 70s – a record that mixes in plenty of currents from spiritual jazz, with a vibe that's very similar to the albums by Oneness Of Juju from the same time! The set's got this very universal appeal – earlier ... read more CD
