VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 4 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... CD
Circle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Raw mod and gritty funk rock grooves from team Le Beat Bespoke – the fourth set in the series – bubblegum garage, fuzzed out pop, funky percussion and wailing organs – this just might be the best in the series to date! Compiler Rob Bailey out does himself here, once again digging deep for obscure mod singles, groovy slabs of garage rock, with a few left turns such as a heavy Latin gem and a more psych-steeped number or two – propulsive, exciting numbers regardless of genre affections and fiery dancefloor ready rock tunes all the way! 20 tailor made cuts on the CD – a brief notes on each tune, all of which are exciting and groovy as can be! Titles include "Voodoo Medicine Man" by Jerry & Jeff, "False Alarm Love" by Peaceful Coalition, "Eg Veit Ao Pu Kemar" by Trubrat, "Feelin" by Joy Unlimited, "No Thank You Mr Pusher" by Big Tom, "King Of Siam" by East Of Eden", "Comin On Down" by The Twilights and more.

VariousSitar Beat Vol 1 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used ... $14.99
India gets funky – in this great set of rare tunes from the 70s – a motherlode of cuts that make the most out of Indian music! Half the cuts are of European origin, the other half from India – and they've got a great blend of beats, sitar, and other eastern touches. And unlike previous vinyl volumes in this series, which were mostly short EPs, there's a huge amount of tracks on here – a total of 21 numbers that also includes a fair bit of edits that strip out the funkiest parts from longer original tracks! Titles include "Sitar Beat" by Klaus Doldinger, "Dharmatma Theme Music (Tommy's edit)" by Kalyanji Anajdi, "Meri Aakhon Mein (edit)" by Sapan Jagmohan, "New Delire" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Rocky (bonus beats)" by RD Burman, "Orchestral Music (edit)" by Raghunath Seth, "Bairaag Dance Music (edit)" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Hotel Incidental Music (edit)" by Usha Khanna, "Qurbani (bonus beats)" by Biddu, "Sa Re Ga (edit)" by Ananda Shankar, "Pyschastenie (Miles drum edit)" by Serge Gainsbourg, and "Dum Maro Dum Live (edit)" by Asha Boshle.

VariousSitar Beat Vol 2 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used ... $8.99
A motherlode of Indian-styled funk – grooves that are heavy on the sitar, but which also feature a fair bit of American funk influences as well! The tracks are all pretty darn obscure, and most are actually from India – not copycat tracks from Europe and the US – and alongside the sitars, instrumentation also includes some great trumpet, moog, and keyboard bits too – sliding along the rhythms with a darkly groovy edge! Most numbers are from soundtracks – and have a definite soundtrack sort of feel – and although there's some vocals on the album, the main focus is clearly on the great instrumentation and super-heavy rhythms. Titles include "The Witness" by Babla & His Orchestra, "Everybody Dance With Me" by SD Narang, "Wade Karle Sanja" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Freak Out Music" by RD Burman, "Nigahon Ka Adaon Ka" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Tera Jasia Pyara Koi Nahin" by Usha Khanna, "Phir Teri Yaad" by Hemant Bhosle, "Butterfly (version two)" by Keith Kanga, "Dard E Dil" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Aaj Mera Dil" by RD Burman, and "Main Akeli Raat Jawan" by Ajit Singh.

New VariousLoving On The Flipside – Sweet Funk & Beat-Heavy Ballads 1969 to 1977 (CD with book) ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. Used CD & Book ... Out Of Stock
Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard! This is exactly the kind of laidback, tripped-out soul we totally love – a host of rare ballads and love songs pulled from the 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – sometimes by groups who are better known for funky tracks, other times by overlooked harmony groups and solo singers who rival the greatness of east coast artists like The Moments or Whatnauts! And while the music is totally great on its own – the sort we're usually content to have someone slip us on a dodgy CD – the whole package is even more incredible – a huge 80 page book that features loads of photos, record images, and notes on these obscure giants – really a Numero-level sort of presentation for these amazing tracks. Titles include "I Don't Think I'll Ever Love Another" by Darling Dears, "Slippin Around" by Thomas East, "Since You've Been Gone" by Little Janice, "Love" by Black Conspirators, "What Am I Waiting For" by Black Exotics, "Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part 1)" by Symphonic Four, "I'll Find A True Love" by Lee Bonds, "Young Girl" by Jazzie Cazzie & The Eight Sounds, and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet.

Azuli (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
A surprisingly wonderful batch of club classics from Jeff Mills – hand-picked for the excellent Choice series, and featuring a lot of late 70s/early 80s numbers we'd nearly forgotten about! Jeff's got a great ear for the sorts of tunes that have a nice electric undercurrent – using bass and percussion to spark up the groove a bit, yet still keeping things soulful and funky overall.

New VariousShake Sauvage – French Soundtracks 1968-1973 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $18.99
Very groovy stuff! In the best tradition of Crippled Dick's Italian soundtrack compilations – Beat At Cinnecita – the label has now dug through the rich rich tradition of French soundtrack grooves, and has come up with a spectacular set of cuts that run from sitar psychedelic to rare jazzy grooves! The track list is stunning – and most of these cuts haven't ever been properly reissued before. Plus, since many French soundtracks were only issued in 7" single or e.p. formats, you'll probably never even track down a full LP for this material – making it as rare as most of our funky 45s! The groove is as perfect as you'd expect, and it's about time that somebody finally started digging into the wealth of great music from France. Titles include "Juke Boxes Chez Saidani" by Philippe Sarde, "Full Speed" by Claude Bolling, "Ok Chicago" by Resonance, "Kidnapping" by Karl Heinz Schafer, "Le Crocodile Porte Cle" by Bernard Gerad, "Grand Theme Malko" by Michel Magne, "Sexopolis" by Jean-Pierre Mirouze, "Sweet Bacon" by Julien Covey, "Petrol Pop" by Michel Magne & Jean Yanne, "Bowery Mood" by Vladimir Cosma, "African King" by Andre Arpino, and "Neus Dans L'Eau" by Georges Garvarentz. 18 cuts in all!

Cinedelic (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
A really sweet little collection of Italian soundtrack tunes – with a focus on female singers, especially those of the sweet and dreamy type! The set goes way past the obvious Italian tunes – to include a number of wonderful tracks we never would have known about otherwise – many in the Morricone-esque vocalized mode of the early 70s, others in more of a groovy beat-style mode. Tracks include "Hiasmina" by Jean Seberg, "Agente 077 Dall Oriente Con Furore" by Lydia MacDonald, "Let's Find Out" by Isabel Bond, "A Doppia Faccia" by Nora Orlandi, "Basta Buardarla" by Edda Dell'orso, "La Notte Piu Lunga Del Diavolo" by Giulia Alessandroni, "The More I Love You I Love You More" by Shawn Robinson, and "Richmond Bridge" by Julie Rogers.

Guilty pleasures galore – a massive collection of dancefloor favorites from the big hair decade – including some hard to find 12" mixes, and a good array of club, soul, and crossover pop numbers!

Nighttime's not the time for sleeping, it's the time for clubbing – as these music lovers will happily let you know!
