Franck Biyong with Cristina ViolleTrouble – Anywhere Trouble (club mix, radio edit, inst)/Trouble (beats) ... 12-inch
Hot Casa (France), 2020. New Copy (pic cover)... $14.99
A great little funky single from Franck Biyong – part of his continuing evolution and growth as one of the leading lights in the contemporary Afro Funk underground – an artist who's really moved past some of the slavish styles of years behind! Franck adds in both live drums and rhythm programs here – chanting out the vocals with Cristina Violle alongside him in the lead – while keyboardist Florian Pellissier and a jazzy combo keep things moving in the back! All three vocal mixes of the tune are great, but the club mix may well be the best – although the whole four track single works together almost as a mini suite based on the music! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Manu DibangoAfrican Voodoo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
PSI/Hot Casa (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
An amazing rare chapter in the career of the legendary Manu Dibango – and a darn funky one as well! This early 70s album was recorded in Paris, right before Manu's huge global "Soul Makossa" hit – and although it was done as an obscure sound library release, it really shows Dibango jumping into all the best funky modes that would soon make him a giant! In face, the whole thing might well be Manu's funkiest record ever – as the tracks have no vocals, and are tight and right on the money – with plenty of heavy drums and massive basslines – plus instrumentation from a very cool lineup of French jazz players that includes Yvan Julien on trumpet and Francois Jenneau on tenor. Manu himself blows lots of funky flute and sax solos – and also plays vibes, piano, and organ – on very groovy instrumentals that include "Iron Wood", "Coconut", "Zoom 2000", "Aphrodite Shake", "Soul Saxes Meeting", "Out Of Score", "Ba-Kuba", and "Groovy Flute". LP, Vinyl record album

K FrimpongK Frimpong & Vis A Vis ... LP
Ofori Brothers/Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Fantastic guitar work from K Frimpong – and plenty of other fantastic sounds too – all rolled up in his unique blend of Afro funk and high-life – served up here on four nice long tracks! There's vocals on the record, but the guitar and rhythms are what really drive the train – especially in some places as the vocals almost feel like exclamatory passages in response to the sharpness of the instrumentation! Things move pretty darn quickly on most cuts – which makes the guitar work even more amazing, especially in comparison to conventional highlife – on titles that include "Abrubo", "Acheumpomaa", "Ohere A Oda Apakaw Mu", and "Aboagyewaa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – mastered at The Carvery, and served up in a nice heavy cover!)

K Frimpong & Super Complex SoundsAhyewa Special ... LP
Ofori Brothers/Hot Casa (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The sublime first album from K Frimpong – a really unique blend of hi-life and Afro Funk, but served up with all these unusual touches that make the album stand out from even most of the rest of the revolutionary sounds that were coming from Ghana at the time! There's this sense of flow that has each side of the record moving with non-stop energy – and an approach to rhythm that's almost as if the whole thing was moving forward like water – a tide of bass, percussion, riffing guitar, and organ – bubbling, dipping, and chugging in a way that seems completely effortless – while Frimpong urges the group on with his well-inflected vocals and lead guitar! Titles include "Nana Bue Me", "Mofofoo", "Komofo Adu", "Otwie", "Osaw", "M"Anoma", "Moma Yen Sore", and "Susuansu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl and cover!)

Joni HaastrupWake Up Your Mind ... LP
Afrodisia (Nigeria), 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
Funky funky solo work from Joni Haastrup – an artist who's also known for his work in Monomono, and who sounds equally great on his own! Joni's got this tight approach that wraps together Nigerian grooves of the 70s scene, and some bolder soul star energy that would be right at home in the US – a kind of powerhouse approach that really sends these tunes home beautifully! The lyrics are in English, which really helps broaden the appeal of the cuts – and the production has these cool compressed elements that are partly like the more psych-inspired modes of other Afro Funk groups, and partly those of the UK soul scene of the 70s. We've never heard a record exactly like this, and the whole thing's a truly memorable treasure from this key moment in African music. Cuts include "Watch Out", "Do The Funkro", "Greetings", "Free My People", "Wake Up Your Mind", and "Champions & Superstars". LP, Vinyl record album
(2011 French reissue on Hot Casa.)

✨✧ Stephanie MillsTantalizingly Hot ... LP
Casablanca, 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A real classic from Stephanie Mills – a record that has the singer finding a whole new groove for the 80s, while still holding onto that magnificent vocal approach that made her great right from the start! Mills gets some key help on production here from both the team of Ashford & Simpson and Mtume & Reggie Lucas – who help bring in some of their own modes to the record, in order to flesh out some of the core production work from Stephanie herself! And while the familiar groovers are always welcome, we love best the mellow cuts here – some midtempo numbers that have a nicely tripping style that really works well for the singer. Titles include "You Can't Run From My Love", "True Love Don't Come Easy", "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You", "Your Love Is Always New", and "Ole Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Elegante OrchestraIt Was Too Hot In There ... CD
Tam Tam (Italy), 2010. Used ... $11.99
A killer project from the Italian scene – a contemporary group, but one who really recreate some of the most playful sounds of European club from way back! The core group is a duo, but they get help from a nice variety of players on the session – including some added strings, horns, and keyboards that make some of the best cuts feel like the late 70s groovers that were often being licensed over here in the US on labels like Salsoul or Casablanca. Disco elements are mixed with some more sensitive scoring at points – almost creating the balance of a groovy 70s Italian soundtrack – and the all-instrumental setting allows for lots of great focus on groovy flute, sax, vibes, and keyboards! Titles include "Let's Do The Bombo", "South Alpha", "Cattivo Is Back", "Deep & Sweet", "Superlover", "It Was Too Hot In There", "The Fireplace", and "Seeds Of Glory". CD
