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!

ErsenDunden Bugune ... LP
Sahinler (Turkey), 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Funky Turkish rock from the enigmatic Ersen – an artist we'd rank right up there with Erkin Koray and Selda for choppy grooves and offbeat music! Like both of those artists, Ersen works in that vein of Turkish rock known as Arabesk or Andalou pop – a very cool blend of Western ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! There's plenty of the latter here – tunes that get great backing from Blo, who you probably know from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Disques Debs/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 29.98
The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start!

Feeling KreyolLas Pale ... LP
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

Eurobond/Kalakuta, 1989. Near Mint- ... $49.99
One of the last great records from Fela – an album-long track with a very political message – delivered after the leader spent a number of years in a Nigerian jail cell, and returned to the musical world with a vengeance!

Celluloid, 1985. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the best of Fela's albums from the 80's, and one that features one long track – "Army Arrangement" – done in vocal and instrumental versions, each lasting for a side of the record. The track's an excellent one – with a hard heavy groove, as the cut's the "ori ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A gem of a set from the legendary Fela Kuti – a classic set of Nigerian grooves produced by Ginger Baker – who was already a frequent musical partner of Fela!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very cool group that's every bit as groovy as their look on the cover – and who make a sound that's way better than you'd expect from a bunch of New Zealanders holding instruments from Indian music! The core of the group is Kevin Clark and Dave Parsons – who play together here on ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible work from Ethiopian singer Tlahoun Gessesse – a vocal force in that nation's music who has been every bit as important as the instrumental sounds of Mulatu over the years!
