Racubah! – A Collection Of Modern Afro Rhythms

LP (Item 487957) Comet (France), 1999 — Condition: Very Good
2LP

Groovy 2LP set that combines new and old Afro Grooves (in the tradition of Africa Funk!) – with many rare titles by African artists recorded in France that you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere! Includes "Afro-Disco Beat" by Fela's drummer Tony Allen, "Racubah!" by the dancefloor group Ice, "Nairobi" by Mombassa, "Wilderness" from a rare library album by Manu Dibango, "Soul Power" by Mulatu Astatke, and "Creole Gypsy" by Roland Brival. Lots more, and a nice batch of grooves!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear. Vinyl has a few light clicks.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Manu Dibango

Soul Makossa
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good
An incredible record – even if it was a worldwide hit! Before this one came out, Manu was a funky sax player grooving away in Cameroun, cutting tight but obscure soulful sides. In 1972, though, he exploded with the track "Soul Makossa" – a choppy hard-riffing number that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
It's hard to imagine Greece in the 20th century being described as primeval, but there's definitely a timeless vibe to the music on this collection – all pulled from vintage 78rpm discs that are filled with earthy percussion, exotic reed lines, and some especially nice stringed ...

Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. Sealed 2LP
A smoking third volume in this mighty look at the Peruvian cumbia scene of the 70s – music that often shares the same blend of guitar, percussion, and keyboards that makes some of the chica grooves from that time so great! The music here maybe owes a bit more to Latin sounds from up north, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kansas City
Gallo (South Africa), 1979. Sealed
A stone classic from one of the hippest groups on the South African scene of the 70s – and one of the few who could compete well with American soul groups of the same time! The cover makes the album look like some overlooked New York club treasure from the period – and the feel of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Not much of a cover photo, but one of the most amazing collections so far from the Numero Group – a richly archival project that finally brings to light the lost efforts of the short lived Tap Records label!
