VariousBeats & Breaks – Just A Mellow Groove ... CD
Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy .... $13.99
Lots of beats and breaks – and the groove is a lot less mellow than you'd guess from the title! Tracks are pulled from some of the coolest indie labels of the 70s – Brunswick, HDH, and Salsoul – and the focus is on tracks that have lots of heavy drums and sharp changes – of the sort that were sampled heavily back in the day, but which also make for a nice batch of upbeat soul numbers too! Yet the collection is way more than just a sample-based collection of soul – as most of these numbers are pretty unusual, and not the kind of soul tracks that show up often on other compilations – and they link together surprisingly well, given the different sources from Chicago, Detroit, and New York. Titles include "Girl I Need You" by The Artistics, "I'm Bugging Your Phone" by The Smith Connection, "Seeing You Through The Eyes Of A Blindman" by Satisfaction Unlimited, "Lovin You Is Killin Me" by Moment Of Truth, "Where Will It End (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Love Committee, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Breakaway" by First Choice, "Taster Of The Honey" by The Jones Girls, and "You Don't Have To Go (edit)" by The Chi-Lites.

VariousBest Of Brunswick – For Groups – The Sound Of Chicago Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $13.99
A motherlode of great group soul – all of it pulled from the vaults of the legendary Brunswick Records! Brunswick really had an excellent way with group vocals – no surprise, given the strong connection that label had to the Chicago scene of the late 60s, a time and place where some mighty inventive, mighty wonderful work was going on! These tunes are way different than east coast material from the same time – more positive, upbeat, and righteous – often thanks to that loping groove provided by the Carl Davis production. The set also throws in a few tracks from later years and other scenes, and even a few instrumental groups too – and titles include "I'm Gonna Miss You" by The Artistics, "We Need Love" by The Directions, "You Got To Be The One" by The Chi-Lites, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, "Shaft" by Gregory James Edition, "Just A Melody" by Young Holt Unlimited, "I Love You Love You Completely" by Exit 9, "Someone Else's Arms" by Channel 3, and "Tired Of Being Alone" by The Lost Generation.

VariousDJ Nori – Spirit Of Sunshine – Nori's West End Mix ... CD
West End/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $26.99
A great little set that not only features a funky remix of club classics from the legendary West End label – but one that also includes a fair bit of obscure singles as well! DJ Nori does an excellent job of digging deep here – and mixes West End hits with some lesser-known nuggets that really give the whole set an edge, and highlights that sharp approach to a groove that made the label one of the most exciting imprints in the post-disco years! You can really hear a new sort of energy at play in the original tunes – and Nori not only respects that, but has a way of making all the best elements bristle anew – in an 80 minute mix that features the cuts "Hey Everybody" by People's Choice, "Do It To The Music" by Raw Silk, "Keep On Dubbin" by Forrrce, "Girl I Like The Way That You Move" by Stone, "Hot Summer Nights" by Love Club, "Heat You Up" by Shirley Lites, "Is It All Over My Face (male vocal)" by Loose Joints, "Can't You Feel It" by Michele, "You're A Star" by Jakki, "There's Never Been" by Kenix, "Spirit Of Sunshine" by Chuck Davis, "Hot Shot" by Karen Young, and "Don't Make Me Wait" by Peech Boys.

New VariousDynamic Sound – 22 Original Hits 22 Original Stars ... LP
K-Tel, Early 70s. Sealed .... $9.99
Nice one! Sure, it's a K-Tel compilation, but there's some nice stuff on here. The big highlight is "Bongo Rock" by the Incredible Bongo Band, which doesn't ever show up on reissues. It's as essential as "Apache" by them, and you get 21 other cuts on here – like "The Payback" by James Brown, "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Eres Tu" by Mocedades, "One Man Band" by Ronnie Dyson, and "Sexy Mama" by The Moments. Plus, there's lots of other classics by the likes of Tony Orlando & Dawn, Donny Osmond, and B.T.O.! Nice stuff, and an original copy with a cool 70's cover design! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousEasy Tempo Vol 4 – A Kaleidoscopic Collection Of Exciting & Diverse Cinematic Themes ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $11.99
Soundtrack funk doesn't get any better than this – thanks to a head-expanding of tracks from the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s – served up with the usual ear for a great cut by the folks at Easy Tempo! The groove here is far from the "easy" you might expect – and most numbers have tight drums, funky basslines, and other heavy elements – all put together with an approach to the music that's far different than anything happening in the US at the time, especially in the way the instruments sound in the end – and in the way that the production techniques make them do really crazy things! Titles include "Parangua" by Luiz Bacalov, "Flirt a Rio" by Piero Umiliani, "Side Sleep" by Berto Pisano, "Little Shakie Girl" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tremendous Stars" by Piero Piccioni, "Under Drama" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Realta No 5" by Stelvio Cipriani, "So" by Lara Saint Paul, "Israelites" by Capuano, and "Citta Viva" by Ennio Morricone.

VariousFunky Jams 6 ... CD
Hubbub (UK), 1996. Used .... $11.99
It's the 6th volume – and the funky jams keep on coming! This set's got 12 tracks in all – with the usual heavy funk sound that's made this series one of the best from the old days of funky compilations! Lots of tracks here that aren't on other sets – including "151 Rome Proof" by Lee Taylor & Soul Twisters, "Slums of the City" by New Establishment, "Summertime" by One G Plus 3, "The Prophet" by Mike James Kirkland, "Who Got De Funk" by Andrew White, "Inside America (part 1)" by Juggy Murray, "Let's Get One" by The Imperialites, "Syncopation" by George Semper, "Hang Up (parts 1 & 2)" by Warm Excursion, and "Evil Ways" by the Village Callers.

VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 19 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy .... $18.99
Sublime 80s grooves – a wealth of wonderful cuts that really represent the best aspects of mainstream soul music in the decade after the 70s – tracks that are definitely leaner than a few years before, and which use all their best energy to step to the dancefloor with some tight hooks and surprisingly soulful vocals! Most of the names here are bigger artists, but represented by overlooked gems – the kind of lesser-known cuts that have always made each volume in this series a delight. Titles include "Emergency" by The Whispers, "I Just Can't Do It Without Your Love" by Carrie Lucas, "I'm Still Missing Your Love" by SOS Band, "Love Follows" by Steven Dante, "Young Love" by Cuca, "I Want You Closer" by Starpoint, "Promise Me" by Dayton, "Baby Don't Say Maybe" by Blue Feather, "New Love" by Rose Royce, "Green Light" by Mtume, and "I Keep Comin Back To You" by The Chi-Lites.

VariousNRK Sessions – Soul, Afro-Jazz & Latin From The Club 7 Scene ... CD
Plastic Strip Press (Norway), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $16.99
Some of the funkiest grooves we've ever heard from the European scene – all tracks from the late 60s and early 70s, recorded as part of the legendary Club 7 in Oslo! Although of Norwegian origin, most of these numbers lean heavily towards American funky styles of soul and jazz at the end of the 60s – grooves that are loose and free, and which often feature some surprisingly great English language vocals – some sung by American soulster Earl Wilson, who was part of the scene at the time, and a key influence on most of the grooves here. The package is a real discovery for our ears – and given that most of these numbers were recorded by the Norwegian broadcasting system for radio play, they weren't really issued publicly at the time – making this collection almost a "sound library soul" set! Titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Hot Pants", "Come On Children", "Them Changes", and "Moment Of Truth" by The Band No Name; "Groovin" by Karin Krog & Fred Noddelund, "Lite Lite" and "Tamma Song" by Tamma, "Night IN Barcelona" and "Oslo Late July" by Kjellerrock Jazzbandet, "California Soul" and "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" by Geir Wentzel's Orkester, and "Otinku" by Modern Sound Quintet.

VariousRaw Soul – Rare & Unreleased Funk From Norwolk, Virginia 1971-73 ... CD
Plut, Early 70s. New Copy .... $13.99
A killer set of funky raw soul from the early 70s Norfolk, VA scene – literally Raw Soul – as the excellent group is at the heart and soul of all the material in the set! It features tracks credited to Raw Soul plus singers & groups Lanis Guess, Shirley Johnson, Sir Guy, Josephine Jones, Lee Fields, Page One and others – all heavy burners from the Virginia scene. The tunes are raw, soulful and tightly funky – with the guitar, bass and drums of Barry Saunders, Maurice Glass and Grover Elliot nicely raw and gritty throughout and the excellent sax work of Dorsey Brockington all over the set. It ranges from hard and heavy funk to less frenetic, stilly nicely gritty southern soul. Totally excellent – here's hoping more compilations are coming down the road! Titles include "How You Gonna Do It", "Leave My Beat Alone" and "The Gig" by Raw Soul, "That Beat's Got The Devil In It" by Lenis Guess, "Feels So Good" by Shirley Johnson, "Candy Man" by Josephine Jones, "Wrong Crowd" by Prince George", "Thank Goodness Gotta Good Woman" by Page One and more. CD has 4 bonus tracks: "Conflict" by The Symbolics, "Superman" (alternate vocal take) by Bargara Stant, "We're Gonna Make Love" by Lee Fields and "The Dance Of Love" by 35th Street Gang. CD

VariousSharp Shades & Finger Snaps ... CD
Blue Note (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2CD .... $9.99
A great introduction to the amazing hardbop work recorded by Blue Note in the late 50s and 1960s – served up as a massive 2CD set filled with some of the label's most cooking classics! The sound here is always tight, right, and to the point – a key illustration of the care and focus that Blue Note brought to the studio when recording jazz work of this nature, which always helped them get the best work out of all players on the session. The 19 track collection is beautifully packaged with full notes and album cover images for each track – and a set of music that goes way past the hits, to feature real gems that include "The African Queen" by Horace Silver, "After The Rain" by Duke Pearson, "No Room For Squares" by Hank Mobley, "Mosaic" by Art Blakey, "Nite Flite" by Lee Morgan, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "Easterly Winds" by Jack Wilson, "A Little Busy" by Art Blakey, "The Black Disciple" by Donald Byrd, "Una Muy Bonita" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Hootnan" by Jackie McLean, and "Hobo Joe" by Johhny Coles.

VariousSoul Togetherness 2013 – 15 Modern Soul Room Gems ... LP
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy 2LP .... $21.99
Soaring contemporary grooves – and a great installment in this excellent series of modern soul! This time around, the tracks are even more modern than before – almost all numbers from recent recordings, but pulled together in a way that really highlights some gems that we would have missed otherwise – including a few key cuts that haven't been in strong circulation otherwise! Think of the groove as Neo Soul for the dancefloor – with great vocals and lots of warm rhythms – and dig the track selection that includes "Gimme Dat" by Kenya Henry, "Can We Talk About It" by Vesta, "Into My Life" by Raffia, "Bein In Love With You" by Sheree Brown, "The Party After (Reel People rmx)" by Muzart, "Got To Let My Feelings Show" by Bluey, "Classic Lady" by Personal Life, "Runnin Around" by The Chi-Lites, "Sweet Heaven (12 Shades summer shuffle)" by Tom Glide with Timmy Thomas, "I Still Have You (Soulpersona rmx)" by Charlie Wilson, and "Something" by 76 Degrees West Band with Raheem DeVaughn.

VariousLocal Customs – Downriver Revival (CD & DVD) ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/1970s. Used .... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest collections ever put out by The Numero Group – and that's saying a lot, given the hipness of the label! Downriver Revival chronicles the story of a unique studio in Michigan – Double U Sound, a custom recording spot that captured a wonderful range of soul, funk, gospel, and other sounds from the local community – beautifully presented here in a full CD, plus a bonus DVD that features the near-complete 200 song archive of the studio! The DVD's really unique – so we'll talk about it first: Done with an interactive menu that lets you literally comb through the boxes of tapes in the Double U vault – selecting each reel recorded by the studio, and sampling the rich array of wonderful sounds from this untapped Michigan scene – a huge amount of music, far more than you'd ever find on a CD compilation. The DVD also features a documentary on the studio and Downriver Revial project – and that alone would be worth the price of admission – but the CD then features 24 key numbers pulled from the vaults – tracks that were either issued on rare 45s, or never issued at all – and which represent a wonderful array of soulful sounds that definitely lives up to the Numero standard! Titles include "There's A Light" by Shirley Ann Lee, "Take Care Of Us" by The Revelations, "Untitled Jam" by Bobby Cook & The Explosions, "Foot Stumping (alt)" by Organics, "While You Were Gone" by Combinations, "Heaven" by Deliverance Echoes, "Untitled" by Burgess Band, "Round N Round" by Junior Mays Group, and "Walk With Me" by Calvin Cooke.

New VariousBest Of Brunswick – Disco & Boogie ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer clubby grooves from the last years of the Brunswick label – a great sampling of the disco, funk, and boogie the imprint released after its initial run of hits! This side of Brunswick isn't nearly as well known as classics by Jackie Wilson or The Chi-Lites, but it's an equally great aspect of the label – and shows that even in the waning years, they still had their ears towards some of the hipper corners of the American soul underground – the sharpest talents who packed the most powerful punch! Tracks include "I Wanna Boogie With You" by Charlie Singleton & Stargasm, "Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse, "Disco Stomp" by Bohannon, "Love Hangover" by Touch, "Time Moves On" by Strutt, "Roller Skate" by Vaughan Mason, "Gotta Get It" by Tony Valor, "Strut Your Stuff" by Young & Company, "Ali Shuffle" by Alvin Cash, "Happiness" by Lionel Hampton, and "Stay Away From My Lover" by Satin Dream.

New VariousBest Of Invictus/Hotwax Vol 1 – Killer Shots ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer batch of 70s soul – all pulled from the vaults of Invictus/Hot Wax Records! The tunes here represent a great evolution of Detroit Soul in the second decade – a shift of the energy of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team away from Motown music, and into a headier realm with a host of new artists. Yet there's also a tight core of dancefloor grooving on most numbers – those tight rhythms mixed with impeccable production that the trio first brought to soul in the 60s. Some tunes here are familiar, others are nicely obscure – and really make for a nice sense of variety in the set – a list of titles that includes "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "Ace In The Hole" by Honey Cone, "Love & Liberty" by Laura Lee, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lite, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Hey There Lonely Girl" by Ty Hunter, "Love Machine (part 1)" by McKinley Jackon & The Politicians, and "Frightened Girl" by The Silent Majority.

New VariousBrunswick Bubblers – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brunswick/Octave (Japan), New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The legendary Gilles Peterson turns his magical ears to the catalog of Brunswick Records – and comes up with some of the label's hippest tunes of the 60s and 70s! Brunswick is best known for its famous soul hits of the late 60s and early 70s, but Peterson goes much deeper to come up with overlooked gems that are then laid out in a way that really makes them resonate strongly together – at a level that really illustrates the unified groove of the label! Brunswick often worked with a tight array of producers, arrangers, and session players – and Peterson finds key links between these tunes, often in surprising places – which makes the collection a real delight once you start stepping through it. Titles include "Keep On Dancing" by Bohannon, "Inner City Blues" by The Chi-Lites, "Harlem" by Willie Henderson, "This Is The Lost Generation" by The Lost Generation, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Gregory James Edition, "Light My Fire" by Jackie Wilson, "Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse, "Will I Find Love" by Gene Chandler, "This Love Is Real" by Dana Valery, and "Go With Love" by Barbara Acklin.

New VariousCold Heat – Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974 Vol 1 ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stones Throw does it again – with a massive batch of older funk rarities that tops most of the rest on the market! Cold Heat is a follow-up to the label's smoking Funky 16 Corners set – and like that one, it's overflowing with great bits that have barely (or never) been heard by the rest of the world at large. Compiler Egon has gone through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos – and has come up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum – and some tracks are by names that are finally getting their due, thanks to the work of Ego, Wax Poetics, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the past few years. In a way, the collection's a summation of some of the singles and reissues coming out through the Now Again/Stones Throw imprint – but it also features some other bits and alternate versions that are totally great! Titles include "Don't Go" by Aristocrats Organization, "Loaded To The Gills (edit)" by Michael Liggins & The Supersouls, "Mr Chicken (alternate)" by The Soul Seven, "Slipping Into Darkness" by Dayton Sidewinders, "James Brown Medley" by The Apollo Commanders, "Scorpio" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Sad Chicken" by Leroy & The Drivers, "Street Scene" by Leon Mitchinson, "Free Your Mind" by Amnesty, "The Thing" by Carleen & The Groovers, "Go For Yourself (edit)" by Kenny Smith & The Loveliters, and "The Stretch (edit)" by Detroit Sex Machines.

New VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

Compiler Dean Rudland does a terrific job of putting together stone classics and lesser remembered numbers by superstars and shoulda been superstars alike – not fussing so much over the rareness or ubiquity, simply compiling a completely excellent double disc set! 35 tracks on 2CDs: "All Because Of You" by Leroy Hutson, "Oh Girl" by The Chi-Lites, "Come Into My Life" by Joyce Sims, "Count On Me" by Natural Four, "Look At The Boy" by Jean Plum, "Let's Make A Baby" by Billy Paul, "Keep Goin' On" by Gary Bartz, "This Feeling's Killing Me" by The Jones Girls, "Devotion" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Spend It On Love" by Side Effect and many more.

Soul Jazz (UK), 2006/2007. Used 3CD .... Out Of Stock
A 3 disc set of jams that shows the Soul Jazz label's about more than just dope, deep reissues! All the numbers included here have been released by Soul Jazz as 12"s, with many non album cuts, aimed straight at today's dancefloors, not to mention car stereos and personal players, pure pleasure for your own private party! The labels strong sense of history collides with today's finest productions, as modern post punk beats collide with dub step, stripped down reggaeton, electro disco and Baile funk for an eclectic mix of non-stop niceness that never sounds like it's covering too many bases and flows beautifully from start to finish! Even though only the third disc is labeled as a mix, all three CDs are edited continuously for non-stop play, with a total of 25 tracks, including "Misty Winter" by Digital Mystikz, "Opal Rush" by Capracara, "Magnetic City" by Kode 9, "Satellites" by Subway, "Pass The Red Stripe" by Skream, "A Historia Da Garcia" by Tetine, "We Got It Like That" by Secondo, "Insane" by ESG, "In Search Of Slowly" by Soul 223 and "Aphrotalk" by JBP.

Gold Legion, Late 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of grooves from the legendary TK Records label – and one that goes way past the obvious hits that topped the charts back in the 70s! The package is less the overall story of TK, than it is a great reminder that there's some really funky nuggets lurking deep in the label's mighty catalog – killer tunes that show that the Miami club sound of the late 70s was firmly rooted in funk and deep soul of the earlier part of the decade – at a level that still stayed pretty funky, even well into the disco generation! There's some great gems here – and titles include "Lady Fingers" by Tony Middleton, "Plato's Retreat" by Joe Thomas, "Funk Reaction" by Lonnie Smith, "Harlem Nocturne" by Wildflower, "Don't Turn Away" by Midnite Flite, "Star Cruiser" by Gregg Diamond, "Funk Machine" by Funk Machine, "Hey Sexy Dancer" by Rocky Mizell, "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" by Herman Kelly & Life, and "Do What You Wanna Do" by T Connection.

Brunswick/Octave (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
DJ Muro mixes it up with the catalog of legendary soul label Brunswick Records – really digging deep into output of the mighty imprint – to come up with a wicked pastiche of funky tunes that includes bits of 40 tracks in all! The mix is more complicated than some of Muro's other outings – and while he still leaves in the best core of each tune, he also weaves them together in a wonderful way that draws definite strands together in Brunswick production, instrumentation, and songwriting – a wonderful tribute to the Chicago soul genius that flourished on the label at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s. The package features way too many snippets to mention here – but includes work from Ginji James, The Lost Generation, Tyron Davis, Bohannon, Lost Generation, Gregory James Edition, Fred Hughes, The Chi-Lites, Erma Franklin, The Eliminators, Exit 9, Gene Chandler, The Directions, Barbara Acklin, Young Holt Unlimited, and many more!
