New VariousSitar Beat Vol 1 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used .... $16.99
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.

New VariousBeat Vol 2 – Lounge At Cinevox ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fab and groovy! The Cinevox label was home to some of the swinginest soundtrack music to come out of Italy in the 60s and 70s – but lots of it's been buried for years, or relegated to pricey Japanese-only reissues.

Tracks include "Diamonds" by Franco Bixio, "Quicksilver (new edit)" by Giorgio Gaslini, "Car Chase At Margellina" by Guido e Maurizio De Angelis, "Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio, "Blue Rhythm Festival (new edit)" by Piero Piccioni, "Crazy Sax" by Augusto Martelli, and "Break" by Franco Bixio.

GDM (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We don't know if this music actually "started" the Italian Lounge scene – because Italy's always been pretty darn loungey to us – but we can say that the package is a great batch of groovy soundtrack tunes, as sparkling musically as the cover is visually!

VariousNew York Noise – Dance Music From The New York Underground 1978 to 1982 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used .... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the most exciting times in modern music – the groundbreaking New York post-punk, post-disco club years – when everything was up for grabs! The work on the set does a really great job of documenting the way that boundaries were blown during the time – as funk met punk, rock met rap, soul met ska, avant garde met mainstream – all in pursuit of the groove! For years, this period has gone under-documented and under-understood – largely because of the complexity and diversity of the music in the scene. But as always, the folks at Soul Jazz Records have done a fantastic job of bringing the whole thing to light – choosing all the best tracks we could have hoped for, and packaging the album with a great set of notes that really gets at the heart of the matter! Titles include "Baby Dee" by Konk, "You Got Me" by Theoretical Girls, "Contort Yourself" by The Contortions, "You Make No Sense" by ESG, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K Rob, "Lesson No 1" by Glenn Branca, "Clean On Your Bean #1" by Dinosaur L, "Helen Fordsdale" by Mars, "Defunkt" by Defunkt, "Button Up" by The Bloods, "5:30" by DNA, "Do Dada" by The Dance, "Wa Wa" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, "Reduction" by Material, and "Optimo" by Liquid Liquid.

VariousUltimate Italian Disco Funk Collection Vol 1 ... CD
PTG (France), Early 80s. Used .... $8.99
A wonderfully wicked collection of tunes – all solid 80s groovers from a variety of Italian groups – most of whom we'd never heard before! The style here isn't the cheesy electronic Italian disco you might know from crossover chart hits – but a bass-heavy, boogie-grooving, post-disco style that's filled with the same great jazzy riffs and keyboard parts you'd expect from American club soul of the time. Grooves often roll into some tightly snapping rollerskating rhythms – and although most instrumentation is electric, including the percussion, the overall sound is wonderfully soulful throughout. Titles include "Don't You Want My Lovin (dance mix)" by Michael Baker, "Gimme Your Love (voc disco mix)" by The Gong's Gang, "Dig It" by Kasso, "Silly Reason" by George Aaron, "My Mind" by Korja, "Love Shot (club)" by The Armed Gang, "Miss Manhattan" by Metropole, "Ride The Beam" by Selection, "Hang On It" by Trance, and "Dance On The Beat" by Boeing.
