Ebony Rhythm BandSoul Heart Transplant – The Lamp Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Heavy funk from the Indy scene of the late 60s – the lost album by one of the funkiest combos in the Midwest! Ebony Rhythm Band have an incredible sound that seems to take the heavy bottom of New Orleans Funk and merge it with the trippier elements of Detroit psychedelic soul – no surprise, considering they hailed from Indianapolis, a point about halfway between the two cities! The tracks on the set have a really great tripped-out groove – using lots of guitar and organ over heavy rhythms, in a style that's a bit like the Meters at times – but a lot freer flowing. The album features 2 tracks that formed the basis of one of the group's singles – plus a lot more that were never issued at the time, including a few by other incarnations of the combo! Titles include "Soul Heart Transplant", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Light My Fire", "Vanilla Fudge", "Get Yourself Together", "Drugs Ain't Cool", "Fool Am I", and "It's Too Late For Love". CD contains the bonus alternate version of "Light My Fire". CD

VariousSouth Dallas Pop Festival 1970 ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1970. Used ... $5.99
A treasure trove of lost funk – recorded live in Dallas in 1970, and issued now for the first time ever! The project was unearthed by the crate-digging funk fanatics at Stones Throw – and it's a perfect counterpart to their brilliant reissue singles of the past few years – live work from obscure groups of the Texas funk scene of the 60s, all recorded in concert, in a format that allows them to jam even more than they would on 45s! Tracks are often quite free-minded – grooving with a tightness that shows the groups' roots in the club scene that first got them playing heavy funk, but working here with a confidence and slight sense of experimentation that's quite befitting of their move to the bigger stage of the festival. The music is presented here complete with announcements and introductions – plus a great set of notes that really helps you understand the vibe of the music – and the material features performances by The Soul Seven, Apollo Commanders, Marchel Ivery Quintet, Black Maffia, and Les Watson & The Panthers – all groups you'll be happy to discover!

New AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

New Cado BelleCado Belle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really sweet debut from Cado Belle – a Scottish 70s combo from the same scene as Average White Band – but one who've got this sunny, soulful feel that's a lot like the best of the Bay Area scene of the time! The group have some great blue-eyed vocals in the lead from Maggie Reilly – a singer who mixes in a lot of jazz elements that work perfect with the light fusion groove of the other members – a style that never tries to get too funky or too over the top, but which coasts along in a nice replica of Cali cool soul! Titles include "All Too Familiar", "I Name This Ship Survival", "Rough Diamonds", "Got To Love", "Stones Throw From Nowhere", and "Rocked To Stony Silence". CD features bonus tracks – "It's Over", "September", "Play It Once For Me", "Gimme Little Sign", and "I Name This Ship Survival (Ashley Beedle re-edit)". CD

New Al WilsonLa La Peace Song ... LP
Rocky Road, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mix of southern soul and smooth 70s pop soul from Al Wilson – one of a few great LPs from Al in the early-to-mid 70s! Most of the tracks are arranged by HB Barnum, save for a few that were arranged by Jerry Long and produced by Steve Cropper. Johnny Bristol handled the title cut "La La Peace Song", which is a killer little groover that has that sweet smooth feel that you'd hear in some of Johnny's own work from the time. Nice, nice stuff! Other tracks include "I'm A Weak Man", "Fifty Fifty", "Stones Throw", "Goin Through The Motions", and "Willoughby Brook". LP, Vinyl record album
