Fantasy, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic jazz funk by one of the best bands in the genre!

Push/PullBang The Drums ... LP
Gertie/Rush Hour (Netherlands), 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
An early 90s set of house instrumentals, but one that really lives up to the rootsier promise of the cover – as the album's actually one of the earlier moments of more tribal rhythms on the New York scene – kind of a precursor to more globally conscious dancefloor sounds to come! Most ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Tight funky soul from Quazar! This relatively overlooked group is one of the lesse-remembered P-Funk-linked acts of the late 70s – which is a shame, as it's a great little side project from the team of Glenn Goins and Jerome Brailey – and one with a bass and drums-heavy party groove! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
