Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP
EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

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

Johnny Dyani & Okay TemizWitchdoctor's Son ... LP
Yonca/Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the hippest albums we've ever heard from bassist Johnny Dyani – and that's saying a lot, given his tremendous records of the 70s! The album's different than the album that Johnny recorded with fellow Blue Notes members on the Steeplechase label – and instead, the group here is ...

✨✧ Christy EssienGive Me A Chance (with bonus download) ... LP
Afrodesia (Nigeria), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Christy Essien is a singer with a very unusual voice, especially for the Nigerian scene – kind of this flowing, rich approach that seems to work equally well with ballads and groovers!

A mix of timeless and modern Afro Latin grooves from Chicago's excellent Esso! Afrojam Funkbeat!

Etran De L'AirEtral De L'Air No 1 ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A trio of guitars, augmented by bass, all swarming around each other in a way that might well make this group the Spacemen 3 of the Tuareg scene! There's not the obvious psychedelic influence here that group had back at the end of the 80s – but the mix of guitar fuzz is equally trippy – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Get/Bongo Joe (UK), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
General Franco is alive and well – at least General Franco Lee Ezute, as the sound of his work on this record is so vibrant, it will keep his legacy alive for decades!

Asterie/Strut (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 23.99
Electrified zouk from the Guadeloupe scene – just the kind of unusual musical hybrid that's always made the Antilles so great! The work here has some echoes of the more familiar modes of zouk, but also has a leaner, more soul-based mode too – almost like a New York take on the genre, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Everland (Austria), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Gunesh might look a bit unusual on the cover – like some crazy mountain folk who've somehow gotten ahold of band instruments – but on the album, they've got this tight funky sound that's mighty nice – yet which is also still as unusual as their look! The instrumentation is jazz ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Everland (Austria), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A fantastic groover from Kiki Gyan – a singer from Ghana who worked in Osibisa during the early 70s – but one who's also got a really universal club vibe here on this overlooked gem from the end of the 70s!

One of the coolest records we've heard on the Sahel Sound label to date – not the usual guitar material you might know from the imprint, but instead a batch of very cosmic keyboards – all instrumental, and spinning out into space with a vibe that's almost a collision between the best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ostinato (UK), 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 21.98
Really beautiful sounds from Abu Obaida Hassan – material that was mostly recorded in the 70s, but often has a much more ancient vibe – thanks to the striking sounds that Hassan produces on the tambour, which is an instrument that features a drum-like bass, and almost an explosive array ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
