EM (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
A beautiful Thai singer with a voice that maybe doesn't need any other instrumentation – given its incredibly haunting quality – but one who sounds even groovier once the music kicks in to play! The work here is mostly from the late 70s, but often has a feel that's really timeless ... CD

Dust To Digital, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy
A great range of amazing reed sounds from the glory days of the global 78rpm scene – not just the saxes and woodwinds you'dknow from the west, but a whole host of even more exotic instruments from points east! The package is a companion to the excellent string-based set from the Excavated ... CD

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy
Rare singles from this ultra-cool Turkish singer – including many tracks that are b-sides of vintage 45s, and maybe even trippier than the album material we've heard before! The work was recorded in the mid 70s, but there's much more of a late 60s vibe going on here – from the trippy ... CD

Kamuran Akkor
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of ... CD

Ekpenyong Abasi
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the coolest, grooviest work we've ever heard from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – recorded by an artist who was heading a children's program at the time! Make no mistake, though – this is no kiddie music, but instead a wonderfully rich, vibrant collection of material – as ... CD

Too Tough/I'm Not Going To Let You
Sum Sum/BBE (UK), 1983. New Copy
Wonderfully groovy work from Rim Kwaku Obeng – an artist with African roots, but working here in the San Francisco scene of the early 80s – where he's clearly picked up a very international vibe in his music! Rim definitely plays some traditional percussion on the tracks, but there's ... CD

Blood Brothers
Academy, 1973. New Copy
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some ... CD

Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. New Copy
A sublime blend of spiritual jazz and African rhythms – and one of the few 70s recordings made by Mombasa, a European group put together by LA trombonist Lou Blackburn! The record's got a much more righteous sound than any of Blackburn's work of the 60s – a boldness and sense of pride ... CD

Academy, 1974. New Copy
Heavy heady funk from the 70s Nigerian scene – a wicked little record that's unlike anything else we've heard before! SJOB is a combo made from ex-members of the group of Sonny Okosuns – all top-shelf players who've clearly got their chops down in the groove department, but are also ... CD

Psycho African Beat
Academy, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A lost chapter from the late 60s/early 70s Ghana scene – a great mix of African rhythms & melodies with the raw grit of garage rock, the heavy groove of funk and soul, the swirling and fuzzed out guitars and organ of psychedelia – the Psycho African Beat of The Psychedelic Aliens! ... CD

Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of the coolest 70s albums from the mighty Manu Dibango – a rare soundtrack that's done with an even greater variety of sounds than his more conventional albums! The sound's sometimes spare and rootsy, but still with this undercurrent of funk – as Dibango mixes together basslines ... CD

African Party
Freestyle (UK), 1967. New Copy
An African Party indeed – recorded in London at the end of the 60s, and featuring a blistering array of percussion and jazz-based influences! Ginger Johnson got his start on the London scene playing a mix of jazz and Latin rhythms in bigger groups, but broke out on his own in the mid 60s to ... CD
