Check Us Out ... LP Creole/Survival Research (Australia), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
An obscure little set from the UK scene – the first full album from a group who started out with more of a Jamaican influence, but soon moved heavily into soul – although served up here with all sorts of very cool, very unusual touches throughout! The groove can be straight, but there's ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Manu Dibango —
Africadelic ... LP Survival Research (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
Incredibly funky work from Manu Dibango – a set that's easily as great as his classic Soul Makossa album – but which is a lot more obscure overall! The work's got a fiercely-jamming quality all the way through – lots of rumbling percussion at the bottom, and also a bit of ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Erkin Koray —
Erkin Koray 2 ... LP Dogon/Survival Research (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Excellent mid 70s work from one of the hippest dudes in Turkey – guitarist Erik Koray, a player who had a wonderful talent for mixing together a range of cross-cultural influences! The style here is a lot more sophisticated than that of Koray's first album – in a mode that shakes off ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rita Lee & Tutti Frutti —
Entradas E Bandeiras ... LP Som Livre/Survival Research (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standout solo set from Os Mutantes member Rita Lee – an album that's different than both her work with that group, and her early solo material – and which sort of represents a return to the roots of rock and roll during the middle part of the 70s! The group features ex-members of ... (Brazil) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The debut album from the Ogyatanaa Show Band – a group who'd been working heavily on the Ghana scene in the early 70s, and who begin this set with a side-long track that pays tribute to all the giants in the world of highlife! That track's quite unusual – a highlife number, but one ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Privilege ... LP T Neck/Survival Research (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A fantastic bit of tripped-out rock from the end of the 60s – issued on the Isley Brothers' own record label, and featuring a group who previously recorded as the Soul Survivors blue-eyed combo from Philly! There's plenty of fuzz going on here – raw guitar that shows plenty of Hendrix ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Essential grooves from Tito Puente – a really unique record for the time, and a set that's only grown in power over the years! The album's an all-percussion jam from Puente – one that strips away most other instrumentation, to focus just on heavy drum work from Puente and a core group ...

Willie Rosario —
El Bravo Soy Yo ... LP Alegre/Survival Research (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A stormer of an album from percussionist Willie Rosario – one of those 60s sets that really have Willie pointing the way towards the 70s salsa generation – working with a small combo that has a beautifully tight groove, all topped with vocals from the young Frankie Figueroa! Frankie's ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
