✨✧ Paul HornPaul Horn In Kashmir ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
Easily the trippiest of Paul Horn's 60s experiments – and even more far-reaching than his Paul Horn In India set!

✨✧ Paco De LuciaLive One Summer Night ... LP
Philips (Spain), 1984. Very Good ... $7.99
A wonderfully rich extrapolation of the sound of Paco DeLucia – still served up with all the intensity of his solo guitar work of the 70s, but also with some additional instrumentation that helps bring out a stronger jazz vibe too!

Soundway (UK), Early 80s. Near Mint- 3LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Damn great work from the early 80s Nigerian scene – music that's evolved strongly past the Afro Funk of the 70s, and often has the same electro soul sound as work from the US at the time!

Hot Casa (Netherlands), Late 70s. Used Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The first-ever set to bring together the work of Nigerian flute player Tee Mac – a hell of a musician, and an Afro Funk contemporary of Fela Kuti, but with a huge legacy of his own!
