New VariousWelsh Rare Beat 2 – Another 20 Vintage Slices Of Cymraeg Soft Psych & Welsh Kosmic Pop ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully wild music from the under-tapped Welsh scene of the 70s – a hotbed of some of the most amazing music we've ever heard, even though much of it was only ever issued on very tiny labels! This second volume of Welsh Rare Beat almost outdoes the brilliance of the first – and it seems to dig even deeper into the underground scene of Wales to come up with tunes that range from subtly funky to slinkily gentle – all served up with perfect sound throughout, and supported with more than enough notes to help you navigate this magical musical maze! Most lyrics aren't in English, but that further supports the uniqueness of this music – and although there's definitely elements here that match some of the folk funk coming out of England or the US at the time, much of the tunes really have their own, odd feel overall. Titles include "Cymylau" by Sidan, "Rosi" by Edward H Dafis, "Cariad Cyntaf" by Eleri Llwyd, "Ffair Ynys Hir" by Y Diliau 72, "Can O Dristwch" by Heather Jones, "Tocyn" by Bran, "Gwr Boheddig" by Chwys, and "Yr Wylan" by Bara Menyn.

New VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 4 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... CD
Circle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 VariousSitar Beat Vol 1 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 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 ... $12.99
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.

P&P, Late 70s/2005. Used 2CD ... $6.99
A guided tour of one of the grooviest club labels ever – all at the hands of the legendary Kenny Dope! The incredibly well-priced package features 2 CDs worth of music – one disc with a 26 track mix of the best and rarest of the P&P Records catalog, and one disc featuring 13 of the label's best cuts, unmixed save for a few special Kenny Dope edits!

And although there's been some other P&P collections over the years, the umixed disc features 4 tracks that have never been reissued before – plus some great lesser-known bits and edits!

VariousMichael Campbell's Best Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, Late 70s. Used ... $7.99
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

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!
