LP...$12.99 ... About October 1, 2021
A great companion piece to the album I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore – and, like that one, a set that's made up of so many different and unusual strands of music – in the best Mississippi Records style! Much of this work hails from the 78rpm generation – and the music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Allen with Afrobeat 2000

NEPA – Never Expect Power Always
Celluloid/Comet (France), 1984. (reissue)
LP...$32.99 ... About October 4, 2021
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic ... LP, Vinyl record album

African Rock
Dan (Japan), 1971. (reissue)
LP...$54.99 ... About October 6, 2021
Don't think "African rock", think spiritual jazz – as the set's a brilliant blend of the funky styles of Akira Ishikawa and his Count Buffalos combo with some deeper percussive elements that bring a whole new global sound to his music! Ishikawa was already a tremendous talent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarala (180 gram pressing)
Universal (France), 1995. 2LP
LP...$39.99 41.99 ... On October 8, 2021
One of the hippest albums Hank Jones ever recorded – a very unique mixture of jazz and African elements, put together with organist Cheick Tidiane Seck! Jones plays his usual piano, but the strongest elements on the set come from Seck's Hammond work, and instrumentation from other members of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Viejas Raices De Las Colonias del Rio De La Plata
Trova/Altercat (Germany), 1976. (reissue)
LP...$29.99 ... About October 8, 2021
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from this legendary Argentine pianist – a set that has Jorge Lopez Ruiz playing lots of Fender Rhodes, and mixing it in with both rootsy Latin percussion and a number of other keyboards too! The set's almost a South American version of some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela

Rejoice (special edition)
World Circuit, 2020. 2LP
LP ... On October 22, 2021
A really fantastic collaboration between two pioneers of African music – and a set that nicely opens both into the jazziest side of their talents! Hugh Masekela blows flugelhorn, and Tony Allen handles drums and plenty of percussion – and although both artists sing a bit, the main ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
Soundway (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2LP
LP...$30.99 ... About November 1, 2021
Some of the funkiest, clubbiest work we've ever heard from the African scene of the 70s – great grooves that would be right at home on the New York dancefloors of the time! The style here is definitely drawn from disco, yet is a lot more funk-based too – more in the farther reaches of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Knitting Factory, 1971. (reissue)
LP...$27.99 29.99 ... On November 5, 2021
A great batch of rare tracks from the legendary Fela Kuti – unreleased for many years after their recording – which was done in London in 1971, when EMI sent Fela to the UK for a special session at their Abbey Road studios! The set benefits from the great production values of that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Okyerema Asante

Drum Message
Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1977.
LP...$29.99 31.99 ... On November 5, 2021
A seminal bit of funky Afrojazz from the DC scene of the 70s! The album features work by percussionist Okyerema Asante, and also includes sax work by Plunky Nakabinde – best known as the leader of the group Oneness Of Juju. Plunky's influence can really be felt strongly on the set – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Manu Dibango

Afrovision
Diggers Factory, 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About November 5, 2021
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
Knitting Factory, 1971. (reissue)
LP...$27.99 29.99 ... On November 19, 2021
A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that pairs him with drummer Ginger Baker – formerly of Cream, and a huge supporter of Fela's music on the UK scene! Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tidal Waves, Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... On November 26, 2021
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soundway (UK), Early 80s. 3LP
LP...$32.99 34.99 ... About February 20, 2022
Damn great work from the early 80s Nigerian scene – music that's evolved strongly past the Afro Funk of the 70s, and often has the same electro soul sound as work from the US at the time! These cuts are unabashedly upbeat, and aimed at the dancefloor – full of the kind of basslines and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Makoto Kubota & The Sunset Gang

Hawaii Champroo
We Want Sounds (UK), 1975.
LP...$29.99 ... About September 17, 2021 (delayed)
A beautiful record that finds a great 70s expression of the longstanding love of Hawaiian music that's held fast in Japan for many many years – a set that was recorded in Hawaii by offbeat Japanese musician Makoto Kubota, in ways that offer up his own very personal interpretation of ...

LP ... About September 10, 2021 (delayed)
A special vinyl release of one of the most striking volumes of the legendary Ethiopiques series – a set that focuses on the mad saxophone work of Getachew Makurya! The recordings on this collection are all from 1972 – and they feature the deep-toned Mekurya blowing in a strange and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buda/L'Arome (France), 1970s.
LP...$22.99 ... About September 10, 2021 (delayed)
A stunning set of vocal recordings by Tlahoun Gessesse – one of the most important singers during the golden age of Ethiopian Music – caught here on a set of sides that sadly saw that period coming to an end! The tracks on the set are mostly from the early 70s, a time that saw great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buda/L'Arome (France), 1970s.
LP ... About September 10, 2021 (delayed)
Amazing 70s recordings from Ethiopian singer Alemayehu Eshete – one of the greatest stars of the Ethiopiques series next to Mulatu! The style here is often quite funky at times – a strong James Brown influence in some of the rhythms, hitting hard with a heavy funk groove at the bottom, ... LP, Vinyl record album
