Mock Up ... CD
Early 70s. Used ....
A wild set of early 70s leftfield folk from Caroline Peyton – a freewheeling batch of tunes that's a little bit more out there than the warmer, sunshine folk soul of the later Intuition album – but a unique gem that's a great showcase for Caroline's stunning voice, and the songwriting... read more
A lost piece of QB history, PHD was the duo of Poet and Hot Day Dante. Like Mobb Deep who'd make a much bigger impact shortly after these guys debuted, PHD peddle in your face east coast gangster-isms. A hard to find album, with mostly raw funky beats and even a nod to the old school with the... read more

Sharp hooks, huge melodies, and pleasing 70s guitar pop greatness from Pilot! Their signature tune, "Magic" – and it's one of those songs everyone knows, whether or not they no who made it – but Pilot soars all around on these tunes. The guitars have punch, but the falsetto... read more
They certainly got the title right on this one – because the groove is heavy heavy heavy, and the set is one of the funkiest African collections we've ever stocked! Geraldo Pino's often credited as the man who inspired part of the Fela sound of the 70s – and Pino was one of the first... read more

Nicer than the usual set of beats from Guidance – a strong bunch of tunes with some nice jazzy touches, especially on keyboards! A few of the tracks are a bit too abstract, but there's some very nice numbers on here that keep a really soulful groove – keys soloing upfront, percussion... read more
A burner of a set from Tito Puente – very well titled to suit the energy of the session! The tracks are all highly rhythmic numbers – short, but filled with jazzy horn flourishes and the kind of snapping rhythms that made the Puente group one of the biggest crossover favorites of the... read more
