✨✧ VariousAfro Peruvian Classics – The Soul Of Black Peru ... CD
Luaka Bop/Warner, 1995. Used ... $5.99
A great collection of tracks – and one of the first chances for most of us to hear the funkier side of sounds from Peru! The work isn't as full-on funky as Brazilian grooves from the time, but does share a very strong influence from American styles – and really goes way past any ... read more CD

✨✧ Dick KhozaChapita ... LP
Sun/Tooth Factory, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.99
One of the hippest bits of funk we've heard from the South African scene of the 70s – a record that mixes in plenty of currents from spiritual jazz, with a vibe that's very similar to the albums by Oneness Of Juju from the same time! The set's got this very universal appeal – earlier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SaitanaBaby Don't Go ... LP
Gallo/Tooth Factory, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
A rare bit of funk from the South African scene of the 70s – a set with a style that's a bit different than American work of the time – maybe a bit more laidback, and with this easygoing vibe that's really great!

✨✧ SaitanaJenakuru ... LP
Gallo/Tooth Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
Wonderfully weird work from Saitana – one of those 70s South African groups who found a way of mixing equal parts soul, funk, and psychedelic influences – then deliver the music with this languid groove that's all their own! The group has ties to other SA combos of the time – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dogon/Survival Research (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Groupe RTDDancing Devils Of Djibouti ... CD
Ostinato (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
A really great combo from the small nation of Djibouti – stepping out here in one of the first international record releases from that company in decades – a shuttered legacy to the rest of the world, given the tight control of music by the state! Yet despite that situation, the Groupe ... read more CD

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most unusual albums ever issued on the legendary Discos Fuentes label – and that's saying a lot, given how many unusual albums the company put out!

Mississippi, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
A killer set of jazz rock from early 70s Japan – and a set that's way different than Anglo albums of this nature!

One of Olatunji's best LPs, and a record that breaks out of his usual straight hard percussion stuff by adding some jazz players like Yusef Lateef, Clark Terry, and George Duvivier. There's also some singers augmenting the ensemble, but they drop out in parts, and the percussion and jazz take over. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
