Gregg DiamondGregg Diamond's Star Cruiser ... LP
Marlin, 1978. Very Good+ .... $2.99
Gregg Diamond takes his Bionic Boogie sound to a different level – soaring to the skies with a leaner disco groove than before – almost hinting at the coming 80s groove in the process! The rhythms are nice and tight, and often augmented by keyboards that sweeten things up – never overwhelming the overall groove, but packing things in with a mighty nice punch – one that lets the vocals on the record really explode! Most numbers have a chorus singing the spare lyrics – but Diva Gray and Gordon Grody each sing lead on a track each, then give the rest of the record to a backup group that also includes Jocelyn Brown. Our favorite track may well be "Holding Back", which snaps along in a great funky dancefloor groove with some old Bionic Boogie elements – and other cuts include "Arista Vista", "Bring Back Your Love", "Fancy Dancer", and "This Side Of Midnight".

Dan HartmanRelight My Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Sky/Purpose, 1979. New Copy .... $14.99
A stunning disco classic from Dan Hartman – maybe an unlikely talent for the dancefloors, given his image on the cover – but an artist who definitely went onto shape the sound of the clubs at the end of the 70s! The album's got the Hartman groove really hitting hard, and right on the money – a tightly compressed approach to disco that really lays heavily on the hooks – in a style that's similar to where Peter Brown was going at the time, with a similar compressed sensibility that gets past any of the fluff that was drowning others in the disco generation! In fact, it could well be argued that the approach here really helps focus a dancefloor sound towards the modes of the 80s – while still allowing for the fluid soul of the disco years too – a style that's summed up perfectly in the album's extended classic "Vertigo/Relight My Fire", which features famous vocals by Loleatta Holloway! Other titles are all sweet too – and include "Free Ride", "I Love Makin Music", "Just For Fun", "Love Strong", and "Hands Down". CD features some nice bonus tracks too – "Boogie All Summer (single)", "Relight My Fire (single)", "Hands Down (12" version)", "Hands Down (Hands Up)", "Relight My Fire (historical 1979 rmx)", and "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (progressive instrumental rmx)".

James & The Incredible ShowmanJames Brown's Boo-Ga-Loo (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $8.99
Fast, frenetic funk – a romping 60s take on "James Brown's Boogaloo" – done at a level that's even rawer than the original from The Godfather himself! The guitar moves super-fast – cutting the tune with a razor-sharp rhythm that's then peppered with burning organ lines – plus a bit of heavy tenor on one of the versions here! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy .... $7.99
A heck of a great little party – even without the Hot Pants! Guy Morris grooves it here in a stone James Brown mode – socking with the bass on the beats, and really going for a heavy sound overall. The tune's incredibly catchy – somewhere between sock boogaloo soul and deeper funk – and Guy's warmer vocals over the top give the tune a unique feel of its own! "Cool It" follows in a similar heavy groove – lots of horns blasting out the theme while funky guitars riff and scratch underneath. Guy sits out the vocals on this one – letting the instruments take the tune to some really groovy places! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Billy Preston & SyreetaBilly Preston & Syreeta (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1981. New Copy .... $13.99
A nice little follow-up to Billy Preston & Syreeta's work on the Fast Break soundtrack – and a record that's one of the few key sides to carry the older Motown duet soul mode firmly into the 80s! There's a great sense of balance here – one that uses Syreeta's sweeter vocal approach to lift up Billy's sometimes rougher sound. And arrangements and production by Ollie Brown ensure that the whole album's got a nice modern feel overall – a style that's got elements of boogie running through most of the numbers, but still with enough room for some of the mellower tracks that make the most of the duet setting. Titles include "Just For You", "Searchin", "Someone Special", "Love", "One More Try", "Hey You", and "A New Way To Say I Love You". CD features lots of bonus tracks too – including "With You I'm Born Again (7" single)", "With You I'm Born Again (inst)", "Go For It (12" single)", "It Will Come In Time (7" single)", "Please Stay (7" single)", and "One More Time For Love (7" single)".

Spanglish FlyThink/Let My People Bugalu ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2010. New Copy .... $5.99
Modern funky Latin Soul from Spanglish Fly! "Think" is a cover of the old school R&B staple best remembered for the killer James Brown version from the early 60s – masterfully remodeled here as a fresh live Latin Soul with vocals by Erica Ramos and a great mix of Latin percussion and horns. "Let My People Bugalu" on the flip is just as great, a lively boogaloo from the NYC combo. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rufus ThomasDo The Funky Chicken (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax, 1970. New Copy .... $4.99 11.98
One of the best Rufus Thomas albums from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set crackles with a raw intensity that put him at the top of the funky Stax for the time! The set includes the massive comeback hit "Funky Chicken", plus a sublime remake of "Sixty Minute Man" – done in a slow and funky mode that rolls on for lover 7 minutes in all! Other tracks include "Soul Food", "Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown", "Turn Your Damper Down", and remakes of "The Preacher & The Bear" and "Bearcat". And dang! There's a huuuuuge amount of bonus tracks here too – funky Stax singles from the early 70s – including "Funky Mississippi", "So Hard To Get Along With", "Funky Way", "I Want To Hold You", "Itch & Scratch (parts 1 & 2)", and "Boogie Ain't Nuttin (parts 1 & 2)".

Watsonian InstituteMaster Funk/Extra Disco Perception ... CD
DJM/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy .... $14.99
Funky treasures back to back – two Watsonian albums from the late 70s on one CD! Master Funk is a great Johnny Guitar Watson side project – a set not billed directly to his name on the front, but which has all the great hallmarks of the best Watson albums from the 70s! Johnny produced, wrote songs, played, and sung on the record – but there's also an equal focus on his backing group too – which means maybe a bit lead guitar upfront, and more vocals from the whole ensemble – who work together to give the whole thing a mighty great party sound! In fact, some of the best numbers almost have a roller boogie vibe that's not unlike early hip hop – although other numbers get much bassier, and funkier overall. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Virginia's Pretty Funky", "De John's Delight", "Lady Voo Doo", "Master Funk", and "The Funk If I Know". Extra Disco Perception is hardly the disco promised in the title – and more of a club funk album overall – served up with plenty of input from the great Johnny Guitar Watson! The album's a great break from Johnny's usual groove – as he's able to retire his personality a bit, and slide in with the groove of the rest of the band – even though Watson's still at the helm – handling the writing, arrangements, and production of the record! The band handles most of the vocals, though – in a cool catchy style that works great with their tight instrumentation – and the whole thing's mighty groovy throughout. Tracks include "Pretty Brown Doll", "Rock", "Pretty Miss T", and "New York New York". CD

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – A Southern Blues & Soul Compilation Vol 2 ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
A huge amount of work produced and presented by the legendary Swamp Dogg – a hell of a great deep soul singer in his own right – but a talent who also helped so many other artists in the 60s and 70s! The range of talents here is really surprising – not just the tight roster of deep soul singers we usually associate with the Dogg's productions – but some bigger names we never realized worked with him at all, and a range of lesser-known talents who really get a lot of grit in their grooves from his studio work and songwriting. Titles on this second volume include "Keep On Dancing" by The Commodores, "Turn My World Around" by Brooks O'Dell, "Bump The Donkey" by Guitar Shorty, "Just Loving You" by Ruby Andrews, "Boogie Truck" by Nat Cross, "He's Gone" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, "It's So Nice" by Arthur Conley, "Sidewalks Fences & Walls" by Solomon Burke, "I Want To Sleep With You" by Ruth Brown, and "If She's Your Wife" by Bette Williams.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Bandit Label (3LP set – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LPs .... $38.99 39.99
An incredible peek into a near-lost chapter of Chicago soul – the tiny Bandit label, home to The Majestic Arrows, one of the greatest indie harmony groups of the midwest in the 70s – plus a few other excellent soul artists! As with the other Eccentric Soul volume from Numero, this one offers far more than just an assortment of rare singles – and instead really digs deep to tell the true story of this tiny indie soul label. The music alone is totally great – as the set features a wealth of harmony soul tracks by The Majestic Arrows, plus other funk and soul tracks by Johnny Davis, Altyrone Deno Brown, and Linda Balintine – but the package is equally noteworthy – filled with the storied details of the unusual and exotic practices and lifestyles of the Bandit Records posse. Titles include "One More Time Around", "Another Day", "Doing It For Us", "Love Is All I Need", "Going To Make A Time Machine", "We Love Together", "The Magic Of Your Love", and "I'll Never Cry For Another Boy" by The Majestic Arrows; "We Have Love" and "Bring Back The One I Love" by The Arrows; "If You Love Me" and "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown; "You're A Habit Hard To Break" and "Glad About That" by Linda Balintine; and "You've Got To Crawl To Me" and "Boogedy Boogedy" by Johnny Davis. Plus, the set also features 3 rehearsal takes of tunes by the Majestic Arrows! This massive 3LP package is way bigger than the CD version – features every song recorded by Arrow Brown, 36 tracks in all – in a heavy box, with a greatly-expanded book that contains the long and sordid story of the label.

VariousMo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... $11.99
Second great volume in this cool Kent series of "mod" jazzy tracks from the Prestige/Fantasy vaults. The emphasis here is definitely on "mod", and a lot of these tracks are the kind of cuts that you'd imagine Brit hipsters in the 60's listening to – with loads of Hammond riffs, choppy guitar, and the occasional bluesy vocal. There's 22 cuts on here, and the tracks include "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene, "Blue Vibes" by Johnny Lytle, "Cholo" by Brown Brothers of Soul, "Soul Jam" by Booker T & The MGs, "Money" by Freddie Roach, "Mission Impossible" by Johnny Gilliam, "Brother Ray" by Willis Jackson, and "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones. Very very groovy, and like finding an excellent jazzy jukebox in a lost corner tavern! CD

New VariousRed Robin R&B Story ... CD
Red Robin/Fuel 2000, 1950s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $5.99 16.98
Heady sounds from one of Harlem's hippest indie labels of the 50s – the Red Robin imprint, home to a rich array of blues, R&B, and vocal group numbers! The company had a relatively small roster, but really helped its artists find the right sort of groove – in some cases to flourish at a level they'd never done before, in others to get a great start before moving onto bigger fame elsewhere – but still always at a level that had them giving their best! This 2CD package features three dozen numbers from the 78rpm era – the kind of heavy platters that kept Harlem moving in the years between swing and soul – on cuts that include "Hard Rock" and "The Hammer" by Red Prysock, "Shake Baby Shake" and "Drunk Again" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Juicy Fruit" by Tiny Grimes, "Can't Do Sixty No More" and "Go Back" by The Du Droppers, "Daisy" and "Don't Dog Your Woman" by Brownie McGhee, "Doggin My Heart Around" by Sonny Terry, "Earthquake" by Charlie Singleton, "Bobby's Boogie" by Morris Lane, "The Man I Crave" by Sadie Birch, "I've Got A Feeling" and "Tippin" by The Topps, and "You Didn't Give Me A Chance" by Sandra Grimes.

John PattonBoogaloo ... CD
1968. New Copy .... Around June 25, 2014
Rare work by Hammond organ giant Big John Patton – recorded in 1968, but never issued until 1995, and even then, only briefly! The record features Patton at his finest – stretching out from his basic soul jazz roots, into a more searching use of the organ that's undoubtedly influenced by Larry Young's work at the same time. The record features great work by Harold Alexander on flute and tenor, plus trumpet by Vincent McEwan, drums by George Brown, and added conga by Richard Landrum. The groove is somewhere between 60s soul jazz and modal – and the tracks are long, with that heavy Patton swing! Title sinclude "B&J", "Boogaloo Boogie", "Milk & Honey", "Shoutin But No Poutin", and "Spirit". CD

New Eddie KendricksBoogie Down! ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston! The album keeps Eddie's hit "boogie" groove going strong – grooving mostly in a midtempo smooth soul style that would become a dominant approach to soul during the next few years, Eddie and Motown's contribution to the soul legacy of the 70s that was nearly as strong as that of Philly soul. Titles include "Boogie Down", "Hooked On Your Love", "Honey Brown", "Tell Her Love Has Felt The Need", and "Loving You The Second Time Around". LP, Vinyl record album

Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Near Mint- .... Just Sold Out!
Quite different than Idris' funky drumming on early 70s jazz records – but not a bad little album on its own terms. As you'd guess by the title, the album's more of a disco/club effort than before, but thanks to some good arrangements by Dave Matthews – who'd worked some good magic with other Kudu artists, as well as James Brown – the funk component's still pretty high. Most tracks have vocals, and the record's got long drawn-out funk tracks with a lot of electric keyboards and wah-wah guitar work. Titles include "One With A Star", "Boogie To The Top", "Bread", and "Stick It In Your Face". LP, Vinyl record album

New Donald ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoking work from Donald Byrd – post-Blue Note, post-Larry Mizell, and with a modern funk groove that's still pretty darn tasty! Not one to rest on his laurels – which he could have easily done with endless Mizell-based recordings – Donald shifts his groove here towards more of a boogie-styled 80s approach – one that's got the same sort of loping funk that was showing up in the work of Tom Browne and some of the younger players on the scene at the time. There's a fuller, richer, more soul-based approach to the set – but still some strands of the Mizell years – especially in the album's great keyboard work by Clare Fischer, and its use of chorus vocals on a number of tracks. Wade Marcus and George Bohannon helped with arrangements – and titles include a great funky remake of Fischer's "Morning" – plus "Veronica", "Gold The Moon, White The Sun", "Marilyn", "Pretty Baby", and "People Suppose To Be Free".

New Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best collection we've ever seen of the work of funky soul legends Dyke & The Blazers – a double-length set that features full, unedited versions of their classics – plus a whopping batch of previously unreleased tunes! Dyke & The Blazers had a groove that was mighty solid back in the late 60s – a hard-vamping, tightly rhythmic groove that easily matched the best early funk of the time from Charles Wright, Sly Stone, or James Brown – and which was often served up with a rougher edge, and an overall sound that was a lot more dangerous! However, many of the group's singles really trimmed down their performances – shaving off key instrumental moments that are lovingly re-attached here, and combining them with some even rarer tracks that never saw the light of day back in the 60s. The whole thing's amazing – and this 2LP set features 18 tracks that include "Black Boy", "Stuff", "Moon", "Booga Jivin", "Runaway People", "Funky Broadway Time (parts 1 & 2)", "Swamp Walk", "Extra Funk", "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man", "Soul Cake", "She Knows It", "Let's Do It Together", "Bring It On Back", "Funky Walk (parts 1 & 2)", and "Triple Funk".

Turnstyle, 1977. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic underground Latin jazz album from the 70s – a wonderfully warm session that beautifully mixes older rhythms and a range of soulful jazz styles! The album's one of the few cut as a leader by bongo player Jose Mangual – whose sweet-stepping rhythms really make the set groove – and the session also features great work from Tito Puente on timbales and vibes, Patato Valdez on congas, Luiz Ortiz on trumpet, Dick Meza on tenor, and Kimmy Knepper on trombone. Most tracks are in an acoustic mode, but slight electric touches warm things up nicely – making for a really unique Latin jazz groove that was years ahead of its time – and a vibe that still makes this album one that we go back for time and time again! Titles include the funky groover "Black & Brown Boogie" – which features guest work on keyboards by Richard Tee, plus a bit of vocals – and other instrumental tunes include "Mai Kinshasa", "Summit", "Chinatown", "Dreamy", "Bamba A Puerto Rico", and "Sunrise Prince".

New Ray Camacho BandReach Out ... CD
Creole Stream (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Brilliant brown-eyed soul from Ray Camacho – an artist who was previously known for more border-styled work with his Teardrops band, but who steps out here with a surprisingly great blend of electric jazz and boogie! The approach is wonderful – a real re-direction of Ray's earlier groove into even more soulful territory – handled with that unique fusion that was happening in just a few of the best Texas spots, like the scene in Austin at the time. The album's equal parts soul and funk, but still has a few Latin roots too – and had this gem come out on Fantasy Records at the time, it would have pushed Ray and group into much headier territory. But we're also happy the set's been undiscovered for so many years (consider it our little secret) – and titles include "Reach Out", "Diggin Deep", "Shake What You Got", "Nobody But You", "Nothing But A Party", and "What A Day".

Stunning stuff – and one of the best-ever Latin soul albums of all time! Despite the fact that Eddie Cano's earlier albums are more in a Latin easy mode, this late 60's side for Dunhill is totally smoking – and probably his greatest album ever! Forgive the superlatives, but we're totally serious on this one – as the set's a firey batch of Latin instrumentals, with a slammin' boogaloo groove all the way through – filled with mad percussion, jazzy piano riffs, and a non-stop groove that's totally great. The set was recorded live at PJ's nightclub, and it's a non-stop Latin Soul party that includes massive originals like "Slip Slip", "Brown & Blue", "Miro Como Es", and "Don't Ever Change" – plus smoking covers of "El Pito" and "Louie Louie". The set screams with excitement, and is as great as the album is rare! LP, Vinyl record album

An overlooked gem from Chic – a record cut past their initial fame in the discos, and done in a tightly-stepping 80s groove that's totally great! The style here still has plenty of that sharp-edged Niles Rodgers guitar – but the overall sound is cleaner and leaner too – more in a boogie-styled funk approach than before, with a tightly snapping groove that holds up strongly throughout! Bernard Edwards' bass is definitely up in the mix a fair bit, and vocals include contributions from Jocelyn Brown and Fonzi Thornton. Titles include "Flash Back", "Take It Off", "Just Out Of Reach", "Telling Lies", "Stage Fright", "Your Love Is Cancelled", and "Burn Hard". CD

Norman Granz's formula of easy swing sessions didn't always work for everyone, but in this case, it's a perfect format – as you'll hear on tracks like "Soulville", "Last Date", and "Ill Wind".

BG2 (Germany), 1977. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A compelling slice of Canadian funk from the late 70s – a group and album who were inspired by the righteous power of James Brown's famous Payback album – but who come across here with a warmer, clubbier feel overall! There's a nice degree of boogie in the mix, but the overall approach is definitely funk – with bumping basslines underneath tight horns, including plenty of sweet Fred Wesley-styled trombone. Yet other club elements come into the mix too – keyboards and a bit of strings at times, which warm things up nicely alongside the tighter bottom rhythms – but always in a way that's still relatively funky overall. Most cuts have an instrumental focus – but there's also female chorus vocals on a number of tracks too – and titles include "Le Payback", "Struttin", "Feelin Good", "Funky Feelin", "The Forge", and "The Mad Mechanic".

New Don ThompsonFanny Brown ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The one and only album from drummer Don Thompson – a funky Brunswick classic from the 70s, and one of the most unique records we've ever heard from the label at the time! Don's got this style of singing that has a bit of a southern twang at times, but he works with grooves that are definitely northern in their orientation – served up in a range of styles that includes the funky drum break of the title cut, some mellow-stepping moments on a few other tunes, and the bouncing boogie that's really become the album's calling card over the years! There's loads of great bass work on most cuts, which really grounds that album alongside Don's drums – and titles include "Just Plain Funk", "Fanny Brown", "Lovin To The Bone", "Night Ladies (part 1 & 2)", and "Hang Loose".

New Various80s Soul Classics Vol 3 – Sweet Soul Vibes & Funky Club Tunes ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs .... Out Of Stock
Not 80s hits, but a great collection of lesser-known gems from the left side of the soul spectrum – some cuts by bigger artists that sparkle even more strongly than their hits – mixed with work by some less common acts too – all served up in a double-length package that's filled with surprises! Most numbers have a boogie bounce or an 80s groove approach – nice and funky, but in a post-70s sort of style – and titles include "Hypnotized" by Scott White, "Don't Wanna Wait" by Lew Kirton, "Ladies Choice" by Stone City Band, "Joy" by Band Aka, "Sexy Sassy" by Bobby Nunn, "Don't Bust Yo Bubbles" by Muscle Shoals Horns, "My Simple Heart" by Carol Douglas, "Happy Days" by Forecast, "Let's Dance" by Tom Browne, "Don't Stop" by Shine, "Special Delivery" by Ann Fields, "Shout About It" by Lamont Dozier, "Love Follows" by Steven Dante, and "Stomp" by Moses Tyson.

New VariousIn The Christmas Groove ... CD
Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest Christmas compilations you could ever hope to own – but you probably guessed that already, from the cover image that pays tribute to a classic set from James Brown! The JB image is certainly well placed – as most of the tracks here are deeply funky Holiday tunes – the kind of gritty seasonal ditties that were only ever issued as funky 45s back in the day – and most really only on a local level, too! Strut's really outdone themselves with this excellent collection – as it features a fair bit of Christmas rarities we've never heard before, but which are totally wonderful – all-new tunes, not common Christmas cover versions – played and performed with a hell of a soulful feel throughout. Knock that ol' Bing Crosby record off the turntable, and give this one plenty of spins this December – and dammit, the music's so great, you may well find yourself playing the collection well into the New Year too! Titles include "Boogaloo Santa Claus" by JD McDonald, "Angel's Christmas" by Wild Honey, "Black Christmas" by Harlem Children's Chorus, "Getting Down For Xmas" by Milly & Silly, "Soul Santa" by Funk Machine, "Funky Funky Christmas" by Electric Jungle, "Christmas Present Blues" by Jimmy Reed, "Santa's Got A Bag Of Soul" by Soul Saints Orchestra, "Christmas Morning (Sean Bonniwell edit)" by Zebra, "Let's Get It Together This Christmas" by Harvey Averne, "Auld Lang Syne" by Black On White Affair, and "The New Year" by Jimmy Jules & The Nuclear Soul System.

New VariousLet's Boogaloo Vol 5 – Deep Funk, Soul, Latin, R&B, All Time Stompers & Future Classics ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 1960s/1970s/2010. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The Let's Boogaloo series gets an extra-special pedigree this time around – the added talents of Gerald from Jazzman Records, which makes for an even funkier entry than ever! The cuts are a mix of rare Jazzman grooves and contemporary deep funk killers – all delivered with a sound that's right up there with the best of the late 60s/early 70s funky underground, with lots of heavy drums, hard-riffing guitars, blasting horns, and deeply soulful vocals! Titles include "Makini" by Sal Davis, "Now I've Got A Woman" by Freddy King, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "Spacin Out" by The Invaders, "Funky Fire" by Billy Larkin, "Angel Food" by The Port Angels, "Newborn" by Shade & The Jazz Destroyers, "Mr Magic" by John Heartsman, "He Spoke" by All Nations Quartet, "It's An Explosion" by Royale VII, "Funky Puggin" by Soul Fantastic, and "Dance Man" by Keisa Brown.

New VariousEccentric Soul – The Bandit Label ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An incredible peek into a near-lost chapter of Chicago soul – the tiny Bandit label, home to The Majestic Arrows, one of the greatest indie harmony groups of the midwest in the 70s – plus a few other excellent soul artists! As with the other Eccentric Soul volume from Numero, this one offers far more than just an assortment of rare singles – and instead really digs deep to tell the true story of this tiny indie soul label. The music alone is totally great – as the set features a wealth of harmony soul tracks by The Majestic Arrows, plus other funk and soul tracks by Johnny Davis, Altyrone Deno Brown, and Linda Balintine – but the package is equally noteworthy – filled with the storied details of the unusual and exotic practices and lifestyles of the Bandit Records posse. The set features 17 full tracks – including "One More Time Around", "Another Day", "Doing It For Us", "Love Is All I Need", "Going To Make A Time Machine", "We Love Together", "The Magic Of Your Love", and "I'll Never Cry For Another Boy" by The Majestic Arrows; "We Have Love" and "Bring Back The One I Love" by The Arrows; "If You Love Me" and "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown; "You're A Habit Hard To Break" and "Glad About That" by Linda Balintine; and "You've Got To Crawl To Me" and "Boogedy Boogedy" by Johnny Davis. Plus, the set also features 3 rehearsal takes of tunes by the Majestic Arrows! CD

New VariousNew York Sound – From The East Coast To The Future ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Seminal club tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – a host of killer singles from the Spring, Vanguard, and Posse labels – all in a fantastic blend of boogie, disco, electro, and soul! The work here is easily some of the most sophisticated to come out of the east coast club scene at the time – a real return to indie genius after disco broke heavily in the mainstream, almost a reinvention of the groove with a host of new elements! Some of these tunes will be familiar, but they're presented here in their full extended versions next to others that have been un-reissued for years – making the set an essential batch of tunes that really gets at the best sound of New York from these years! 10 long tracks in all – including "Over Like A Fat Rat" by Fonda Rae, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Rainbow Brown, "Money (Dollar Bill Y'All)" by Jimmy Spicer, "Charley Says (Roller Boogie Baby)" by King Tim III, "Wired For Games" by C-Bank, "Rockin It" by MC Flex & The FBI Crew, "Electric Kingdom" by Twilight 22, "Is This The Future" by Fatback, "Love Hangover" by Players Association, and "You Keep On Making Me Hot" by Busta Jones.

New VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 18 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Seductive dancefloor soul from the heart of the 80s – and the 18th volume in the unstoppable Nighttime Lovers series! This one has as great of a lineup of artists as we've seen so far in the series – and a welcome wildcard or two – with tracks by Cherrelle, Melba Moore, Tom Browne, Brick, Omni, Patrice Rushen, Fonzi Thornton and others. There's a pretty nice balance of styles here, too – with some tighter funky soul numbers from earlier in the decade and synthy boogie from the middle point. 13 tracks in all: "Will You Satisfy?" by Cherrelle, "Love Me Right" by Melba Moore", "Spaced Out" by Pure Energy", "Watch Out" by Patrice Rushen, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Tom Browne, "Our Lives" by Robert Brookins, "Just To Be With You" by Oliver Cheatam, "Wide Open" by Brick, "All For The One" by Omni and more.
