Kora Music From Gambia
FMP (Germany), 1984. Used
An unusual world music session from the FMP label – one of their few forays into the format, and one that's recorded with the same sense of creativity as their avant jazz sessions! The album features solo kora and voice from Jali Nyama Suso – working here in an unfettered setting that's ... CD

Knitting Factory, 1977/1978. Used Gatefold
Shuffering & Shmiling is one of the tougher Fela albums to find, and it's reissued here with the original cover art, and with the super-extended title cut laid out non-stop end to end. The cut's a very nice groover, and a scathing attack on religion to boot! "No Agreement" is a very ... CD

Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Psychedelic soundtrack funk from some the great composers of the 60s & 70s – raw percussion, tripped out psych guitars, squealing synth and keyboards, brass blasts and sultry vocals – one of best yet in Rough Guide's fruitful adventures in global psychedelia! Their guide to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Really mindblowing work from Fela – a seminal 70s set that may well open up even more than any other album from the time – as the leader and Africa 70 stretch out on a single track that takes up the entire record! "Confusion" is almost proggish at the start – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An impassioned attack on police and army violence in 70s Nigeria – and easily one of Fela Kuti's best-remembered albums of the time! The lead track – "Sorrow Tears & Blood" – is really tremendous – a wicked groove that begins with a very long electric piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Which Way Nigeria?
Jive Afrika, 1984. Very Good+
Nice uptempo modern afro funk by Sonny Okosuns from the mid 80s. 4 stretched out grooves, with less of the syncopated approach or raw funk of Fela, but still with a great post disco feel that never loses its distinctly Nigerian vibe. Pulsing interwoven guitar lines keep the tracks moving along ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautiful work from reed player Tony Scott – recorded during a time when he was doing a lot of soul-searching with Eastern cultures! The set's a stripped-down batch of long tracks, with Scott's clarinet in the lead, and backing by 2 Japanese musicians on Koto and Shackuhachi. The tracks are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Makossa
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good+
A killer album of Afro Funky tracks, and certainly one of Olatunji's best! The record was recorded in the early 70s, and it features Olatunji breaking past his usual heavy blend of African percussion, into a vein that's a lot more tinged with jazz and soul touches. He gets some great help on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Boy's Doin' It
Casablanca, 1975. Very Good+
A mid 70s effort from Hugh Maskela, recorded in Nigeria, an excellent melding of his jazz inflected pop sound with some deeper soulful grooves. The vibe here is showing both some funk and disco influences, but with trademark South African style melodies floating over top and a dedication to Fela, ... LP, Vinyl record album
