CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Philadelphia International/Demon (UK), Late 70s. Used
Two of Dexter's classic Philly albums back to back on one CD – each one featuring a slightly different side of his writing/arranging talents! 1978's Voyager is a bit like Dexter's space jazz classic Life On Mars – and with those fat, thumping bass lines, elastic lead guitar, ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
War
Avenue/Rhino, 1971. Used
War's first LP without Eric Burdon – and although not the mega-hit that following LPs would be, still a pretty great blend of styles that firmly shows the group's unique vision. War are hitting hard with that soulful LA funk sound – a blend of funky jazz, Latin, and other elements ... CD (Soul)

Istikhbars & Improvisations
EM (Japan), 1965. Used
Really amazing music from Algerian pianist Mustapha Skandrani – music that effortlessly links up European traditions and North African roots – in a blend that's completely sublime, and unlike anything else we can think of! At many points, Skandrani plays with a complex, virtuostic ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ogun (UK), 1979. Used
A lost treasure – never-issued material from the legendary Blue Notes combo – and a set that really helps fill some space in their all-too-small recorded catalog! The set captures the group at the end of the 70s, working in their most openly-creative mode – a style that partly ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bamako By Bus
Anzic, 2012. Used
A jazz set, but one with plenty of world music roots – thanks to help from a great range of guests! Daniel Freedman grounds the session nicely on drums – but the album features strong contributions from Meshell Ndegeocello on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar and vocals, Avishai Cohen on ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ishi (with download)
Leaving, 2014. New Copy
Moody ambient synth explorations from M Geddes Gengras! Mood-wise, Ishi is a bit reminiscent of the benchmark electronic ambient experimental albums of the 70s, like Tangerine Dream, with 3 long pieces that start fairly calm and pastoral, with slow-building, thickening atmosphere, before easing ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)

Southern Meridian (blood splattered vinyl – with bonus tracks)
Parallel Thought, 2014. New Copy
Gritty southern rap delivered with a laidback style, but with fully committed authority by Gene The Southern Child – backed by the chilly, ominious production Parallel Thought! They've worked as together as duo before, with pretty solid results, but they really step up their games on ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Redefinition, 2014. New Copy
Abstract, yet classic hip hop inspired instrumentals from Klaus Layer – a prolific German producer who continues to deliver the goods! For The People Like Us shows a lot of love for 90s east coast hip hop production, without imitating it – funky beats that'll get your heads nodding, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Legacy
Polar, 2014. New Copy
Jazzy hip hop producer/rhymer and longtime under-appreciated uber-talent J Rawls delivers what's billed as his final album as a solo emcee – and to underline the point, it's called The Legacy – focusing squarely on rhymes and lyrics and letting top notch producers handle the beats! It's ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy
The best cuts from Jonwayne's trilogy of cassette releases – the appropriately titled Cassette, Casset 2 and Cassette 3 – selected and compiled by the man himself for the excellent Cassette On Vinyl! Jonwayne would go on the release an excellent, proper debut album pretty soon after ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
SES Records/Creole Stream (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A lost blacksploitation treasure – and the only soundtrack we've ever seen from Motown funky drummer Jack Ashford! The album cooks with a sweet and tight groove – kicking back with a wah-wah heavy instrumental approach on some tracks, and sweeping things up with soulful female vocals ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mastertone (UK), 1960s. Used
CD (Comedy/Spoken)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 LPs
Rare tracks and a fair bit of unreleased dub plates too – a deep dig into the genius of Yabby You during the 70s! There's a dark, brooding intensity to these tracks right from the start – from the deep, bassy bottoms of the dubs – to the prophetic lyrics of the tunes, which often ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beatle Beat
Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy
Not The Beatles, but a group who are trying to cash in on their fame – by showing a monstrous Beatle wig on the cover of the album, covering a horde of dancers – and by playing a whole host of instrumentals with a nod to the Brit Invasion! We're guessing the Blue Beats were some ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fine Brown Frame
MCA, Late 40s. Near Mint-
LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy
The title's really evocative here, and so is the music – maybe the strongest solo moment we've heard from Floacist so far! The tunes have a sensual quality that grabs us right away – not cloying, commercial romantic modes – but a laidback, personal, positive vibe that's produced ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sunset/Cleopatra, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Classic early material from these godfathers of the German prog scene – 1969's Phallus Dei – the first LP from the "II" grouping of the Duul commune! Phallus Dei encompasses everything from free jazz, to spiraling psychedelia and outright space jams – all graced with ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)

Art Yard (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one – working at the end of the 60s in an incredible blend of jazz and more traditional Egyptian-styled ... CD (Jazz)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I Can Remember/Standing On The Outside
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The bump here is a gentle one – a cool slow funk start to a track that turns out to be just the kind of mellow harmony number we love so much! The flipside's equally great – and both cuts have a feel that reminds us of those east coast groups who could be hard and sweet at the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rock Beat, Late 60s. New Copy
Really wild radio commercials, and a lot lot more – a very cool set that has some big names in the 60s underground promoting popular products – mixed with these even weirder "exploitation" bits that use stories of the youth culture to market items, and help push a whole range ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ohio Players Live 1977
Cleopatra, 1977. New Copy
Amazing sounds from The Ohio Players – the only live performance ever issued by the group, and a set that captures them right at the height of their mid 70s fame! The sound here is every bit as tight as on their classic studio albums for Mercury Records, but the music has a lot more bite, ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capsoul/Asterisk, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album of harmony soul – easily one of the best you could ever hope to find! The Four Mints were an obscure group, but they sound really wonderful here – just as great as some of the bigger proponents of the genre in the early 70s – with an especially great talent ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Charly (UK), 1960s. New Copy
Sublime 60s soul singles – upbeat, grooving, and brought together in support of legendary UK club The Catacombs – an early hotbed for the Northern Soul scene! The package is heavy on notes and images from the club – but even if you've never set foot in the UK, or on a dancefloor, ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Numero, Late 70s. New Copy
Brilliant early sounds from Jimmy Jam – rare late 70s material that has a very different sound than his slicker 80s work with Terry Lewis! The style here is a wonderful blend of sweet soul and righteous jazzy funk – a lot warmer than Jimmy's later beat-heavy style – and served up ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Constellation (Canada), 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Powerful sounds from reed player Matana Roberts – the second chapter in her ambitious Coin Coin project, and one that's even more moving than the first! Mantana's got strong ties to the avant scenes in Chicago and New York – but works here in this very unusual style that also embraces ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Unity Is Power
Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soundway (UK), Early 70s. Used 2CD
Essential work from the African scene of the 70s – a collection of tracks that goes way beyond the more familiar grooves of Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango! The set may well be the deepest so far we've heard from the always-amazing Soundway Records – a package that digs into a wealth of ... CD (Global Grooves)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
QDK (Germany), 1999. Used
Hmmmm...although this one's supposed to be filled with funky Indian film music (ala Bombay the Hard Way), it's more of a straight compilation of groovy tracks from the Bollywood film industry of the 70s. Most tracks have vocals, and all of them seem to be recorded directly off of soundtracks, with ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Strangers In The Night
Reprise, 1966. Near Mint-
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound! The leadoff title cut really sets the pace for the whole thing – a slyly syncopated groover that works perfectly with Sinatra's aging vocals – originally ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Monastic Trio
Impulse, 1968. Used

Motor (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used
For what it's worth, this is a pretty wonderful compilation – only the second volume in the legendary Mojo Club series, but already hipper than most sets of this nature coming out these days! The package is filled with classic jazz, funk, soul, and bossa groovers – and was really one ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motel, 1970s/2001. Used
The fantastic follow-up to one of our best-selling titles! Like it's precursor, this second volume to Bombay The Hard Way takes 70s Bollywood brownsploitation film funk tracks and dialogue, and remixes them to pump up the beats, pull out the grooves, and create a more coherent sound overall. ...
