✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Coffin For Head Of State ... LP
Knitting Factory, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the most compelling Fela albums of the 70s – and one that's got a very different feel than some of his others. The album features one long track – "Coffin For Head Of State" – and although the track still has the usual Fela staples of horn riffs, chopping vamps, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Egypt 80Army Arrangement ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The original take of "Army Arrangement" – one of the greatest 80s grooves from Fela Kuti – stretched out here over the course of the entire album! The notes list side one as being the "instrumental" and side two as the "vocal" – but in truth, the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Yellow Fever ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1976/1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A really killer 70s album from Fela Kuti – one that serves up a hell of a message, and some great slinky grooves too! "Yellow Fever" is a brutal attack on miscegenation, backed by a funky groove that makes the whole thing fall into place with an amazing riffing sound – bold, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mammane SaniMammane Sani Et Son Orgue – La Musique Electronique Du Niger (with bonus download) ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Amazing sounds from Niger – some really hypnotic lines on electric organ – played in a way that's unlike any other use of the instrument we've ever heard! There's a flowing, water-like quality to the music that's almost in the territory of Terry Riley's work on organ – yet the ... (Out Sound, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download!)
Also available Mammane Sani Et Son Orgue – La Musique Electronique Du Niger ... CD 12.99

✨✧ Rupa BiswasDisco Jazz ... LP
Numero, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A record that's got to be one of the coolest recorded in Calgary during the early 80s – as it offers up a really unusual blend of modes that definitely lives up to its title, and which also borrows a bit from Indian music as well! Singer Rupa Biswas fronts a group that's equally strong on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Asnakech WorkuAsnakech ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
Not just a fantastic album from Ethiopia's legendary Asnakech Worku, but also a great setting for Hailu Mergia too – as he plays organ on the record, and produced the whole thing too! Worku sings and plays the krar – an Ethiopian harp, but one with a very raw sound – almost more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hailu Mergia & Dahlak BandWede Harer Guzo ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1978. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $19.99 23.98
Maybe the coolest music we've ever heard from Ethiopian keyboard legend Hailu Mergia – a late 70s session that has his organ lines sounding even groovier than ever, on some sweet tracks that also bring in a fair bit of funk to the grooves! The style is much more in an Ethiopiques vein than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great 2LP pressing – with bonus insert of notes!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Hailu Mergia & The WaliasTche Belew (with download) ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1977. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
An amazing organ player from the Ethiopian scene – one whose work here easily rivals that of Mulatu and some of the best artists on the Ethiopiques series! Hailu Mergi has plenty of jazz in his approach – not just on his own keyboard lines, but also in the way he lets the group members ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousNigeria 70 Vols 1- 4 (9LP collector's box set) ... LP
Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy 9LP ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic batch of grooves – and a much-needed document of the rich array of funky sounds that were coming out of Nigeria in the 1970s! The country's best known as the homeland of Fela Kuti – an artist who forever changed the face of global funk – but what's not as well known ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Folkways, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
A beautiful little record – one that features cascading tones from the strings of the kora, mixed with occasional vocal moments too! The album was recorded in Dakar and Brikama in the mid 70s – and is maybe the start of a great run of later sessions that found a way of taking this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nicely-done reissue – with all the heft of an orginal Folkways pressing!)
Also available Gambian Griot Kora Duets ... CD 12.99

✨✧ Lord Invader & His Calypso GroupCalypso Travels (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Folkways, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
The last album ever recorded by Trinidad calypso legend Lord Invader – and a set that really sums up all the genius he brought to his too-short career! At a time when the music was really entering the mainstream in commercial ways, Invader keeps things very spare, stark, and basic here ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful reissue – with all the heft of a classic Folkways pressing!)

✨✧ VariousTuareg Music Of The Southern Sahara (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Folkways, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
The sounds of the Tuareg culture have gotten some surprisingly strong global circulation in recent years – thanks especially to a few key guitarists who've gained international attention – but this 1960 recording by Folkways Records may well be one of the first times the music of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAyahuasca – Cumbias Psicodelicas Vol 1 ... LP
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
A totally cool collection of unusual cumbia cuts from 70s Peru – music that definitely earns the psychedelic tag promised in the title, given its heavy use of electric guitars and trippy production! The style here is different than more familiar cumbia from Colombia – rooted in the ... (Latin, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Warm, soulful sounds from a crucial time in the Japanese music scene – a 70s moment when the nation was finding a special groove of its own – but one that also drew heavily from American soul and jazz as well! It's no secret that the Japanese have always had a great love of American ... (Funky Compilations, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
