VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 4 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... CD
Circle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
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.

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 7 – Bikini Beat ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The bikini beat is a great one here – no simple beach music classics, but a range of mod groovers from the classic years of the Italian soundtrack scene! This volume is heavy on electric elements – fuzzy guitars, keyboards, and more – all filtered nicely through a range of rhythms from the 60s and the 70s – bossa, jazzy, and funky – filled with amazing twists and turns throughout! The double-length collection is a treasure through and through – easily one of the greatest soundtrack sets we could have hoped for. Tracks include "Teresa L'Illusa" by Riz Ortolani, "Malizie Di Venere" by Gianpiero Reverberi, "Spy Chase" by Bruno Nicolai, "Airport Rock" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake 2000" by Piero Piccioni, "Amanda Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, "Un Detective" by Fred Bongusto, "Katmandu" by Piero Piccioni, "Theme" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Bambolona" by Luis Bacalov.

VariousThey Call It Crossover – More Midtempo Soul Gems ... CD
Back Beat (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
They call it crossover, we call it great – a wonderful assortment of rare soul treasures from the late 60s and early 70s, most of them in a mellow midtempo groove! The term "crossover" isn't used as the way we'd use it here – in that these aren't commercial hits from the mainstream. Instead, they've got a great vibe that takes them past some of the harder dancefloor numbers of the period – warm enough to win the heart of just about any listener, with a sweet groove that really gets you from the start! Many of the tracks are from the east coast scene of the early 70s – but there's also some key Chicago and Detroit numbers too – and titles include "Crying Time Is Over" by Tony Love, "Without You Here" by Gene Chandler, "Who Will Do Your Running Now" by Marvin Smith, "It Could've Been Me" by Erma Franklin, "Ain't It Funny What Love Can Do" by Kenny Young, "Don't You Wake Me" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "I Don't Need Nobody" by Gloria Edwards, "Lovely Woman" by Eldridge Holmes, and "The Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3.

VariousDisco Discharge – Disco Ladies ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Disco Ladies, and some deeper soul too – a very cool collection of cuts that all feature female singers in the lead, supported by a great range of club sounds from the 70s and 80s! As with other entries in the Disco Discharge series, the grooves here really go past the obvious – and although you'll find some familiar names, most are represented by lesser-hits and hard to find cuts that make the package well worth tracking down for any club collector – especially as some of these grooves haven't been properly reissued on other sets over the years! There's a whopping 22 tracks in all – and titles include "Love At First Sight" by Kim Hart, "Groove Me" by Fern Kinney, "Give Me A Break" by The Ritchie Family, "I Like You (Shep Pettibone rmx)" by Phyllis Nelson, "Fly Too High" by Janis Ian, "Instant Love" by Sylvia Love, "Spacer" by Sheila B & Devotion, "Blood & Honey" by Amanda Lear, "Come On & Do It" by Poussez, "This Beat Is Mine" by Vicky D, "Keep It Confidential" by Nona Hendryx, "Get On Up & Do It Again" by Suzy Q, "Gotta Get Out Of Here" by Lucy Hawkins, "Jump To The Beat" by Stacy Lattisaw, "Shake It Up Tonight" by Cheryl Lynn, "Bring On The Love" by Gloria Jones, and "You Fooled Around" by Sister Sledge.

New VariousGroove On Down – 12 Full Length Rare & Classic Disco/Boogie Cuts ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
A fab collection that's casting light on one of the neglected eras in soul reissues, the cusp of the 80s, with an emphasis on great, soulful disco numbers. All the tracks here have a nice pumping 4/4 beat underneath, but the tempos on most numbers sit nicely in the middle, building a set of great 80s boogie numbers, roller skating soul and sophisticated club tracks that fill in some gaps in your 12" collection! There's a number of styles represented, with some nice moogy bits on a few tracks and soaring strings on others, but every cut's a gem, 12 of them in all, with Charme "Georgy Porgy", Harvey Mason "Groovin You", Melba Moore "Standing Right Here", Vaughn Mason "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll", Young & co "I Like What You're Doing to Me", Dunn Pearson "Groove On Down", "New Jersey Connection "Love Don't Come Easy", James Perry "April Lady", Garfield Fleming "Don't Send Me Away", Goldie Alexander "Show You My Love", Hipnotic "Are You Lonely" and the Circle City Band "Magic".

VariousHorse Meat Disco 4 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
No horsing around here – as the set may well be the most compelling so far in this mighty hip series – a wicked blend of underground club from the post-disco and post-punk generation! The tracks here definitely push towards the more obscure side of the spectrum, and really show the way that American and European funky modes were mixing together at the start of the 80s – simmering in seminal scenes on both sides of the Atlantic, and coming across with a wickedly fresh approach to funk and disco! The set features a few contemporary cuts that draw deeply from this key musical moment, but most are of older vintage – and titles include "Misaluba" by KSB, "Don't Stop" by Ish, "Ain't No Way (special club mix)" by Opal, "Stop" by Valery Allington, "Get On Down" by King Sporty & The Roots Rockers, "I Love Your Beat" by Rena, "Get Ready For The Future" by Winners, "Let's Make Love Tonight" by L'Amour feat Krystal, "Some Love" by Laura Taylor, "Barah (sampled version)" by Cleavage, and "Bee Sting" by Camouflage. 2CD set features one extended CD mix, and one disc of unmixed tracks!

Perfect Toy (Germany), 1960s/1970s/2000s. Used ... $8.99
A fresh and funky second Shake-A-Leg compilation from Perfect Toy – chronicling the styles spun at the Shake-A-Leg DJ nights, which shake up the Munich club scene on a monthly basis – with the best rare vintage and contemporary jazzy funk, Afro Beat and deep soul! You know you're in good DJ hands when the setlist plays like a 40 something year history of globetrotting, dancefloor ready jazz and funky soul – spanning the old(er) school styles of Charles Earland, Willis Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers and more, plus contemporary torch carriers such as The Qualitons, Cesar's Salad and Deep Jazz. Compiled by Jerker Kluge and Tobias Kirmayer.

New VariousMichael Campbell's Best Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A P&P funky disco "best of" Michael Campbell – featuring standout stormers by his groups High Fidelity and High Voltage – plus a couple of Campbell's best productions for others! The heart of this tight compilation are the monster club cuts by the High. . . .groups – High Fidelity, High Voltage and Michael Campbell & High Volt – all heavily percussive jams that'll shake dance floors for as long as DJs play them – and we'd recommend forever for that! It kicks off with the 11-minute "Rock, Spank, Freak" by High Voltage and the nearly 7-minute "We Are Making Music (Part 1)" by Michael Campbell & High Volt – and includes "Life Time", "Dedicated", "Love Champ", "From Us To You", "Destiny" and "Magic Carpet" by High Fidelity. Last, but not least – instrumental versions of "Going To A Disco To-Night" by Little Scotty and "Dance To The Beat Freakout" by Wayne Ford. It's not a mix set, either – it's got 10 full length versions from P&P – and 68 minutes of club-scorching genius! CD

New VariousShake Sauvage – French Soundtracks 1968-1973 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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!
