New Brothers JohnsonLight Up The Night ... LP
A&M, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $2.99
More hit magic from the Brothers Johnson – still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and virtually setting up the blueprint for jazzy soul in the 80s! Backings are by an all-star team, and Rod Temperton's helping out Quincy with arrangements – going for that snapping groove approach he worked to best effect with Heatwave. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and The Brothers keep a nice funky undercurrent on the bottom of most tracks. Titles include "Smilin On Ya", "You Make Me Wanna Wiggle", "Light Up The Night", "Stomp", "This Had To Be", and "Closer To The One You Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Brothers JohnsonRight On Time ... CD
A&M, 1977. New Copy .... $4.99 6.98
A funky classic from the Brothers Johnson – sweet funky soul, done with a polish few could match! The pair are still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and the record's filled with lots of tight jazzy grooves that certainly show Quincy's touch – and which set the record apart from a number of similar mainstream funk records flooding the market at the time. The standout cut on the album is their great reading of "Strawberry Letter 23" – originally done by Shuggie Otis in a stoner version, but nicely stripped down here by the Bros, and given a very nice pop psychedelic soul twist! Other tracks include "Right On Time", "Q", "Free Yourself, Be Yourself", and "Love Is". CD

A&M, 1980. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
No stomping here, and instead a sweetly soaring groove – very much in the best Brothers Johnson mode! Quincy Jones produced, and the track is a great one from the Light Up The Night album – bouncing, soulful, and with a great boogie bottom – topped off with some nice basswork and keyboards that even get a bit moogy! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Brothers JohnsonBlam (with bonus track) ... CD
A&M/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blam is right – an all-out batch of funky tracks from The Brothers Johnson – captured here right in the middle of their classic period with Quincy Jones! The Q's at the helm on production for the set, and the record's a great extension of their earlier efforts with the man – but a bit more Johnson-tuned (if we can say that in mixed company) – with the bass upfront on some of the best numbers, and a surprisingly strong male ballad approach on some of the gentler tunes. There's a slightly jazzy undercurrent at times, and tracks include "Rocket Countdown/Blastoff", "Ride-O-Rocket", "Streetwave", "Blam", "So You Won't Stay", "Ain't We Funkin Now", and "Mista Cool". CD also features the bonus single mix of "Ride-O-Rocket". CD

New Brothers JohnsonLook Out For #1 ... LP
A&M, 1976. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An all-star soul affair produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring the talents of studio greats like Harvey Mason, Billy Cobham, Toots Thielmans, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, and many others – not to mention the Brothers themselves! We'll be honest, though, in saying that we really think it's the great jazzy backing and the tight arrangements by Quincy that make this record so great. The Brothers' bass and vocal work is fine – but it's the non-bass instrumental moments that really make this album great, as you'll hear on cuts like the moog-heavy "Tomorrow", or the timbales/keyboard/flute groover "Thunder Thumbs & Lightnin Licks". Great stuff if you dig mid 70s work by Q – and featuring the tracks "I'll Be Good To You", "Land Of Ladies", "Free & Single", "Get The Funk Out Ma Face", and "The Devil". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley ClarkeTime Exposure (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1984. New Copy .... $13.99
A nice funky electric groover from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years! Time Exposure has a lot of period electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout! A brilliant mix of 80s fusiony future funk with jazz precision – definitely a funky highlight from this period in Clarke's career – and those bass lines are just unreal! A pretty eclectic roster of guest musicians play on this one, including tenor sax player Ernie Watts, fellow bassist Louis Johnson of Brothers Johnson, singer Howard Hewitt and rock guitar guru Jeff Beck. Titles include "Play The Bass 10", "Are You Ready (For The Future)", "Heaven Sent You", "Time Exposure", "Speedball", "Future Shock", "Spacerunner", "I Know Just How You Feel" and more. This CD version from Funky Town Groves features 5 bonus tracks: "Heaven Sent You (12" Mix)", "Heaven Sent You (7" Mix)", "Speedball (12" Mix)", "Are You Ready (For The Future) (12" Mix)" and 'Future (12" Mix)".

Shuggie OtisInspiration Information/Wings Of Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic, 1974/2013. New Copy 2 CDs .... $15.99
A treasure trove of rare funk – a massive package that not only includes the legendary Inspiration Information album by Shuggie Otis, but which also adds in four bonus tracks to that classic – plus a full other album of unreleased vintage work! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, and on his first two solo albums, which were kind of bluesy in tone. But for Inspiration Information, he shocked the world by moving into a stripped-down mode that pairs his guitar with spare drum machine rhythms, flanged-out deeply soulful vocals, and one of the most laidback conceptions of funk you'll ever hear. The album's a landmark – one of those gems that's unlike anything else you can think of, but which will redefine your concept of what you want in a record for years to come. Every track's a winner – and the whole thing's a perfectly unified batch of tunes that includes instant classics like "Inspiration Information", "Island Letter", "Aht Uh Mi Hed", "XL 30", and "Rainy Day" – plus unreleased bonus tracks "Miss Pretty", "Magic", "Things We Like To Do", and "Castle Top Jam". Then – as if that's not enough – the set features incredible rare material from Shuggie – 14 more tracks as the Wings Of Love album, mostly recorded in the late 70s post-Inspiration years, plus a few tracks from later vintage too! The sound is great – the kind of extra bits we've been wanting to hear from Otis for many many years – finally unleashed from the vaults, and showing a style that really echoes the groove that others had copied from him – like The Brothers Johnson and some later contemporaries. There's plenty of great lost nuggets on Wings – and titles include "Trying To Get Close To You", "Give Me Something Good", "Wings Of Love", "Give Me A Chance", "Fireball Of Love", "Fawn", "If You'd Be Mine", "Black Belt Sheriff", and "Destination You".

VariousBlack Man's Cry – The Inspiration Of Fela Kuti (CD & book) ... CD
Now Again, 1970s/1990s. New Copy .... $9.99 19.98
Covers and music inspired by the towering figure in Afrofunk – the great Fela Kuti – rare 70s material a few modern cuts recorded in Nigeria, Trinidad, Ghana, Colombia, Germany and America – some previously unreleased, and all wonderful representations of the far-reaching influence of Fela! A few tunes are solid takes of the Nigerian funk groove proper – but others carry the sound into cumbia, steel band and western funk styles – all of it exciting, hugely passionate and floor-shaking! The CD version is bound in a mini-hardcover book like package – with nice notes on Fela himself and the the influence he had on the material herein by Stones Throw/Now Again honcho Egon – and tracks include "Shacalao" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Woman Pin Down" by Dan Snatch And His Atomic 8 Dance Band, "Never Trust A Woman" by Bola Johnson, "Black Man's Cry" by Mosco Tiles Fonclaire Steel Orchestra, "Egbi/Black Man's Cry (Medley)" by Lever Brothers Gay Flamingos, "Comencemos" by Phirpo Y Sus Caribes, "Up Side Down" by Daktaris, "Lullaby For Lagos" by Whitefield Brothers and more.

VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vol 6 – Mento, Calypso, Jazz, & Highlife From Young Black London ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gateflod .... $16.99
London's always been one of the hippest cities in the world – but back during the postwar years, there was an especially wonderful outpouring of music on the scene – a rich array of new sounds and styles pulled from around the globe – as so many residents from crumbling British empire came to live in the UK! Musicians and listeners arrived in London with plenty of cultural baggage on hand – influences from the Caribbean, West Africa, and India too – plus other smaller scenes that once fell under the British banner, all now the fuel for the cultural fire that was happening in England! The title here tells plenty about the music being made in this newly-formed scene – bits of African highlife, Jamaican calypso, American jazz, Cuban Latin, and more – all filtered into the modernism of the 50s, and given a new twist that was decidedly urban as well. The package may well be the most impressive so far in this legendary series – and is certainly the one that moves the farthest past any sort of easy expectations or cultural conventions. Titles include "The Escape" by Dizzy Reece, "Mambo Contempo" by Ginger Johnson, "Life In Britain" by Mighty Terror, "Sway" by Buddy Pipp's Highlifers, "Song Of Joy" by Rupert Nurse's Calypso Band, "Joe Louis Calypso" by Lord Beginner, "Uncle Joe" by Fitzroy Coleman Quintet, "Me Donkey Want Water" by Tony Johnson, "Belly Lick" by Eric Hayden, "Nigeria Odowoyin" by West African Rhythm Brothers, and "Football Calypso" by King Timothy.

New VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 16 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy .... $13.99
A solid compilation of dancefloor soul from the early 80s – one of the best yet in the long-running Nighttime Lovers series from Vinyl Masterpiece – with tracks by Luther Vandross, The Brothers Johnson, Cool Runners, Carl Carlton, Mtume, Freddie Jackson, The Chi-Lites, Stanley Clarke and more! The entire series has done a nice job of putting together bigger names and comparably forgotten ones – but even with the more legendary groups and singers, they go way past the obvious hits. It's a very well sequenced selection on Vol 16 – dancefloor ready soul and a nice set of songs! Includes "I Wanted Your Love" by Luther Vandross, "Kick It To The Curb" by Brothers Johnson, "Private Party" by Carl Carlton, "Nobody Else" by Karen Silver, "I Don't Understand It" by Scott White, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Chi-Lites, "Heaven Sent You" by Stanley Clarke, "Shout For Joy" by Dunn & Bruce Street and more. 13 tracks in all.

VariousSpectrum – Thrilling 60's Film Noir Themes ... LP
Plastic (Italy), 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $22.99
The folks at Plastic dig a little deeper than usual for this one, and they turn up a nice batch of cuts – some obscure, some better-known – to define the genre of 60's Noir. The 16 tracks on the compilation are a mix of crime/spy type tracks, moody jazz vocal tracks, and dark moody orchestral themes. Although some of the stuff is a bit funky, the mood is much different than the usual funk compilation, and has more of an overall spooky feel. Tracks include "Out Of This World" by Mark Murphy, "Crossfire" by The Hurricanes, "Ennloro" by Percy Faith, "Jesus Christ Superstar" by Armando Sciascia, "Goldfinger" by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, "Love For Sale" by Eartha Kitt, "Harlem Love Theme" by JJ Johnson, and more by Lalo Schifrin, Cal Tjader, Oscar Brown, and others!

New VariousBest Of Wally O Productions ... CD
Philly Archives, Late 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard Philly soul from the hands of Wally O – aka Wally Osborne, one of the the best independent producers working in Philly during the late 60s. This set of 22 tracks digs through some of Wally's best work – mostly male group sides, done in a mixture of styles that includes uptempo groovers and sweet harmony ballads – and all either issued as rare singles on labels like Toxsan or Womar, or never issued at all, and appearing for the first time on this CD. The harmony tracks are incredible – the kind of late night slow tracks that always send us scrambling for the liner notes to see who's blowing our mind – and overall, the quality of work on this CD matches the best of any of our other sweet soul or harmony classic titles. Tracks include "Dear One", "A Nicer Girl", and "Tears Tell The Story" by The Topics; "I'm So Glad", "Tell Me So", and "I Found True Love" by Herb Johnson & The Impacts; "Kisses & Roses" and "When I'm With You" by The Four Thoughts; "You Can't Have Your Cake" and "I Wish I Knew" by Bobby Holland; "Without You Babe" and "Cold Cold Love" by Jeri & Joe; "Cement Plaster & Gold" by The Natural Soul Brothers; "It Wasn't A Lie" by Topaz; and "My Life Depends On You" by The Passionettes.

20 killer funky sample tracks – all pulled from the legendary holdings of ACE/BGP! Some of the tracks on here have appeared on other compilations, but the set's put together extremely well, and has more than enough funk for a whole crate of records!

New Candi StatonCandi/Young Hearts Run Free (bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Edsel (UK), 1974/1976. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
Candi Staton at Warner Brothers – stepping out here on two classics for the label! First up is Candi –one of the best Candi Staton albums from the 70s – recorded for Warner Brothers, but with strong southern production by Rick Hall and the Fame Studios team. The group includes classic Muscle Shoals players like Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson – and although the record's a bit slicker than earlier efforts, it's still got a much more honest soul sound than some of Candi's other 70s recordings. Lots of good songwriting, too – and titles include "Here I Am Again", "Clean Up America", "A Little Taste Of Love", "As Long As He Takes Care Of Home", "Six Nights & A Day", and "Can't Stop Being Your Fool". Young Hearts Run Free is the album that really put Candi Staton on the map – and for good reason, too! After first breaking into the soul business as a mellow southern-styled singer cut by Rick Hall in the classic Fame mode of Muscle Shoals, Candi made a wise move to the Hotlanta sound and hooked up with producer Dave Crawford for this runaway hit album from the mid 70s! The title cut – "Young Hearts Run Free" – mixes the best elements of Candi's southern roots with a strident smooth groove that worked as well on the dancefloor as it did on the radio. Along with that cut, though, the album's got a great overall sound – kind of a mix of southern and modern soul styles, with a sophisticated approach that worked well for Candi. Other cuts include "I Know", "Run To Me", "Destiny", and "What a Feeling". Also with a nice cover of Al Green's "Living For You". CD features bonus tracks "As Long As He Takes Care Of Home (without rap)", "Young Hearts Run Free (single edit)", "Run To Me (ext version)", "Young Hearts Run Free (12" ext M&M mix 86)", and "Yougn Hearts Run Free (inst M&M mix 86)".

Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sweet Times, indeed – Strut Records returns for another truly great volume in their Nigeria 70 series – this one covering the highlife, juju and Afro Funk music of Lagos in the 1970s – stellar material that has never been issued outside of Nigeria before now! There's a pretty diverse cross section of the sounds coming from the region at the time – from upbeat funky Afro Soul to psych-infused guitar and percussion jams, jazzier instrumentation and impassioned vocals – most crucially, fusions of jazz, funk, soul, juju and highlife. Wonderful, wonderful material that stands proudly with the other great entries in the series. Includes "Life" by Moneyman And The Super 5 International, ""Ire" by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Unity In Africa" by Eji Oyewole, "Idegbani" by Zeal Onyia & His Music, "Viva Disco (Instrumental)" by Tunde Mabadu, "E Ma S'Eka" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats, "Ajoyio" by Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & His International Brothers and more.

New VariousYou Better Believe It Vol 2 – More Rare & Modern Soul Gems 1967 to 1979 ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used .... Out Of Stock
One of the best soul collections we've heard in years – a treasure trove of rare singles from Atlantic, Warner Brothers, and related labels – all in a warm and mellow style! The approach here is halfway between sadder sweet soul and some of the fuller sounds that were coming from the Philly scene in the mid 70s – a special place that was often dubbed "modern" on the UK scene of the time, but which we like to think of as 70s mellow at its best! And when we say mellow, we don't mean that these tracks are sleepy ballads – because all of them have some sort of a gentle groove at the bottom – often a slower, but snapping rhythm that lets itself well to more sophisticated stepping, in a groove that was often not fully appreciated at the time. 23 track package includes a few previously unissued tracks, but even the ones that were issued are pretty darn obscure – and titles include "Bitter With The Sweet" by Tony & Tandy, "Rising Cost Of Love" by Darrow Fletcher, "Strangers In The Dark Corners" by Johnny Bristol, "If You Want Me To Be More Of A Woman" by Lorraine Johnson, "I'm About Loving You" by Al Hudson & Soul Partners, "We're On Our Way" by Frankie Newsome, "Girl You're My Kind Of People" by The Olympics, "Only The One You Love" by Dee Dee Warwick, "Don't Want To Lose Your Love" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Girl You Know That I Love You" by The Hypnotics, "I'm So Thankful" by Barbara Lewis, "Signed Miss Heroin (alt mix)" by Sam Dees, "Hey It's Over" by Windy City, "The Coldest Days Of My Life" by Walter Jackson, and "If You Do Love Me" by The Duponts.

Get ready to discover a whole new realm of African Funk – because this collection digs deeper than any we've ever had before! The mighty Soundway Records have come up with a blistering batch of grooves that push way past the bigger hits on the global scene – to the real roots of the Afro Funk sound of the 70s, an assortment of Nigerian recordings that have an undeniable combination of African rhythms and American funk! Percussion is at the forefront of the set – and most tracks feature lots of skittish drum work, topped off by hard riffing on sax, guitar, and keyboards. The whole thing's very much in the best tradition of our favorite grooves by Fela – and titles include "Asa Sa" by Fred Fisher, "No Wrong Show" by Thony Shorby Nyenwi, "Omelebele" by Dr Victor Olaiya's International All Stars, "Afro Baby" by Stephen Osita Amaechi & His Afro Rhythm Skies, "Ochonma" by Martins Brothers Dance Band, "Alikali Adajo" by Sahara All Stars, "Lagos Sisi" by Bola Johnson, "Ire" by Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, and "Son Of Mr Bull Dog" by The Mebusas.
