CD


4.70 32

Mindblowing funk from 70s Africa – a collection that's overflowing with great rare bits! If you ever thought that the sound of Afro Funk was just Fela, Tony Allen, and Manu Dibango – think again, because this set will really expand your horizons! The package was expertly selected, compiled, and annotated by Afro Funk DJ Miles Cleret – a man who really knows his stuff, and who's spent most of his adult life tracking down obscure bits from all corners of the dark continent. This set focuses on funk grooves from the vastly-undocumented Ghana scene – and it's honestly one of the best collections of Afro Funk we've ever heard – smoking and heavy from bottom to top, and filled with great music that we never would have caught otherwise! An instant treasure – and with tracks that include "Africa Is Home" by Joe Mensah, "Atwer Abroba" by Ebo Taylor, "Disco Africa" by Ogyatanaa Show Band, "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" by Apagaya Show Band, "Kye Kye Pe Aware" by The Sweet Talks, "Mondo Soul Funky" by Ebo Taylor & Wuta Wazuri, "Samarin Bolga" by Uppers Chapter 2, "No Condition Is Permanent" by Marijata, and "Agbadza" by Uhuru Dance Band. (Includes original slipcase.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

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 ... CD

Stalemate/Fear Not For Men
Barclay/Wrasse, 1977. Used
Killer stuff from Fela – and 2 albums we never see in the original! The Stalemate album has two hard groovers, both with vocals, and both very nicely driving all the way through. Fear Not For Man has a great hard drum sound on the title cut, with a moment that might even be called a break ... CD

Wrasse, 1984. Used
An excellent live set from Fela – one that shows that he was still very capable of going over the top during the 80s! The material was recorded in 1983 in Amsterdam, live before a very enthusiastic crowd – one that really drives Fela and the group on their instrumental solos and funky ... CD

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
An essential chapter of Miami soul – even if most of the work is appearing here for the first time ever! The set is a magnificent companion to Numero's Deep City collection of pre-TK Miami soul – but it's put together in such a way that it's almost a beautiful introduction to the south ... CD

Steppin To Jazz

A massive treat from the Chicago scene – a dozen jazzy classics, put together with a feel for the kind of cut that's always played big on the Chi-town steppers scene! Lots of other stepping jazz CDs feature mostly newer tracks, but this one's great in that it includes a bunch of late 60s ... CD
