Domino Sound, Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautiful sounds from the short-lived musical legacy of Salum Abdallah and his Cuban Marimba Band – a group from Tanzania, but one who play with lots of influence from Latin Music – as you might guess from their name!

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!

DovesLord Is My Shepherd ... LP
Clover (Nigeria), 1975. Good ... $29.99
The title sounds a bit gospel, but the album's a smoker from mid 70s Nigeria – a very unique hybrid of styles that's unlike most of the Afro Funk we know from the time! The Doves seem to have an equal ear for reggae and regional sounds – and work here to fuse both together with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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!

That's "Dytomite", not "dynamite" – and don't ask us what it means, either! But we can tell you that the set's a great bit of highlife, recorded with a lean, breezy feel – a bit more heft than just the duo pictured on the cover – with criss-crossing guitars, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Electrified zouk from the Guadeloupe scene – just the kind of unusual musical hybrid that's always made the Antilles so great!
