CokeCoke ... LP
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! LP, Vinyl record album

Bumblebee UnlimitedSting Like A Bee ... LP
RCA, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A spacey Patrick Adams/Greg Carmichael dance classic – and very much in the P&P disco mode! The record's filled with extended club cuts that have a lot of keyboards and electronics, and although the lyrics are a bit silly at times, the groove is rock solid – with that amazing funky disco sound that was sort of a precursor to the house grooves of the 80s. Adams and Carmichael are on keyboards – and vocalists include Donna Green and Leroy Burgess. Nice all the way through – and tracks include "Lady Bug", "I Love You", "Honey Bun", "Space Shuttle Ride", and "I Got A Big Bee". LP, Vinyl record album

Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
Beautiful early work from British singer Vashti Bunyan – an important figure in the acid folk scene at the end of the 60s, heard here on some really wonderful work from a few years before! Some of the tracks have a really trippy style, and others are a bit more like conventional Brit girl pop of the time – but given a very weird twist overall, with a sound that's quite hard to describe! Vashti's vocals have these really dark qualities overall – and even when the backings are fuller (which often they are not), there's a sad, earthy feel to her singing. But equally great is her guitar work – heard with more prominence on most of the album's previously-unissued tracks from mid 60s tapes. Bunyan plays with these warm harmonics that kind of nestle and bristle underneath her vocals – pushing the tunes up with a sense of brightness in contrast to the voice – almost in a Nick Drake sort of way (and trust us, we don't throw around comparisons to his music easily!) The package is a wonderful look at these almost-lost years of Vashti's career – and it features both sides of her Decca and Columbia singles, an unreleased Immediate single, and a lot more tracks pulled from rare tapes from 1964, 1966, and 1967! Set features 25 tracks that include "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind", "Train Song", "Love Song", "Winter Is Blue", "Leave Me", "How Do I Know", "Go Before Dawn", "Girl's Song In Winter", "Don't Believe", "17 Pink Sugar Elephants", "Someday", and "I Know".

Johnny CashOut Among The Stars (180 gram vinyl with download) ... LP
Columbia, 1981/1984. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 24.98
A surprisingly strong set of previously unreleased Johnny Cash – recorded with producer Billy Sherrill, mostly in 1984, but with a couple sessions from '81 – and it's honestly as great, and a heck of a lot better than a bunch of Johnny's music that actually DID see commercial release during the 80s! Our favorite Billy Sherrill productions are ones like this, where he's providing a clean, polished backdrop for hardscrabble honky tonk heroes, without compromising their gritty nature. He worked that kind of magic for Johnny Paycheck and George Jones, and it works just as well for Johnny. Johnny's voice is as rich and booming as ever – and it includes a couple duets with June Carter, and one with fellow Highwayman Waylon Jennings. Includes the great title track, "Baby Ride Easy", "She Used To Love Me A Lot", "After All", "I'm Movin' On", "If I Told You Who It Was", "Call Your Mother", "I Drove Her Out Of My Mind", "Tennessee", "Rock And Roll Shoes", "Don't You Think It's Come Our Time", "I Came To Believe" and a bonus Elvis Costello mix of "She Used To Love Me A Lot".

Jimmy Castor BunchIt's Just Begun ... LP
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! If you've ever bought a lousy Jimmy Castor album – throw it away, and buy this one! LP, Vinyl record album

New Bo DiddleyBo Diddley's Beach Party (180 gram vinyl mono version) ... LP
Chess/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
You might need to be a Diddley diehard to know it, given the pretty hokey early 60s Beach Party cover photo – get past that and what you'll find is a rowdy, rumbling and completely incredible live album from Bo! It features material captured on a 2 night stand at The Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, SC in July of 1963 – raw and rambunctious, with the band pummeling fast and furious on some numbers and taking others into more of a gutbuckety bluesy vibe that's something else entirely. Occasionally you can hear the screams of a clearly knocked out audience – boy, if we could find a wormhole to travel back in time and take this one in for ourselves. Includes "Memphis", "Gunslinger", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Old Smokey". "Bo Diddley's Dog", "I'm All Right", "Mr Custer", "Bo's Waltz", "What's Buggin' You (aka Crackin' Up)" and "Road Runner".

Emerald Web/Sam Mcloughlin & Alison CooperGarden Of Mirrors/Supernatural Lancashire Vol 2 ... LP
Disposable (UK), Mid 80s/2013. New Copy ... $15.99
A wonderful split set of sound library work – very much in keeping with the best Finders Keepers impulses behind this limited series! Side one features music by Emerald Web – a set of electronic tracks used for 80s planetarium projects – very moody and slightly spooky, with a weirdly unsettling quality that really echoes the experience of sitting in the dark with a bunch of strangers, tilting back to watch projected stars on the ceiling of a dome! The quality is one that's hard to describe if you've never had the planetarium experience – but Emerald Web really get it right, on tracks that include "Freefall", "Dreamspun", "Emergence", "Through The Garden Of Mirrors", and "Doppler Bells 2". Side two is titled Supernatural Lancashire – and features a really spooky take on pastoral sounds of England – served up in this eerie mix of acoustic and electric instrumentation that feels like scene-setting music for The Wicker Man! Titles include "The Fox Moth", "Hleapan", "Strikers Steal Into Sight", "Lunaris", and "Consumed By Opal Waters". LP, Vinyl record album

Fabiano OrchestraButterfly Island (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Franck R/Superfly (France), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A rare gem from percussionist JF Fabiano – a really unique little set of jazzy grooves that was recorded in Martinique, and features musicians both from the European and American scenes of the 70s! There's some mighty great horn work on the set – thanks to work from guests Clifford Jordan on flute, Marvin Peterson on trumpet, and Carter Jefferson on soprano sax and tenor – but the real strength of the album comes from the rhythms – which are a complicated blend of Fabiano's work on drums, gong, kalimba, and other percussion – then augmented by other percussionists, and electrified with some sweet work on Fender Rhodes, clavinet, mini moog, and guitar! The result is a record that's got the sharpness of a fusion outing, but the organic touches of a spiritual jazz set – all crafted in a space that's far away from the influence of mainstream studios of the time. Bunny Brisset-Fabiano sings on a few tracks, but most of the set is instrumental – and titles include "Half Moon Bay", "West Indian Meditation", "Butterfly Island", "Pointe Des Chateaux", "Creole", and "For Ca Change".

Foreign ExchangeLove In Flying Colors ... LP
HBD, 2013. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99
The best yet from Foreign Exchange! FE began as a transatlantic collaboration between rapper/singer Phone in NC and producer Nicolay in Holland – who literally got it done by exchanging files online – but since Nicolay moved closer, they've grown into one of finest indie soul acts in the US! They're much more than duo, too – co-running their own label and serving as a linchpin of a soul scene that includes Zo!, Sy Smith, Jeanne Jolly and others. As a project, FE is more community-based than ever! Their roots as a leftfield hip hop soul project are still healthy, with crisp, easygoing beats and occasional rhymes by Phonte – but Phonte has grown more confident as a singer over the years, and that continues stronger than ever. Nicolay's pedigree as a multi-instrumentalist and spacey soul producer has also grown nicely! Love In Flying Colors features the above mentioned guests, plus Carmen Rodgers, Carlitta Durand, Gwen Bunn, Eric Roberson and others. Includes "If I Knew Then" with Carmen Rodgers, "Right After Midnight" with Sy Smith, "Better" with Shana Tucker & Eric Roberson, "On A Day Like Today", "Listen To The Rain", "Call It Home", "The Moment", "Can't Turn Around" wih Gwen Bunn, "Dreams Are Made For Two" with Carlitta Durand and "When I Feel Love".

George JonesGrand Ole Opry's Newest Star (with download) ... LP
Starday/Reserve, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A really early record by a young, fresh-faced George Jones – his full length debut, actually – released in 1957 by Starday, not too long after his debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry! George had been recording some artistically promising, if underselling singles for a couple years prior, including the now legendary rockabilly sides (on which he was billed as "Thumper" Jones), but this was his first full length showcase as a rising country singer. The title is pure showbiz, as George wouldn't be a big star for a couple more years. He was ready, though! The songs are great, and he wrote or co-wrote most of 'em – and oh man, that VOICE – this is where the legend begins, people! Includes the early classic "Why, Baby, Why", and a whole bunch of great tunes, including "You Gotta Be My Baby", "Ragged But Right", "It's OK", "Still Hurtin'", "Boat Of Life", "Let Him Know", "Play It Cool" and more.

Boobie Knight & The Universal LadyBoobie Knight & The Universal Lady ... LP
Brunswick, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Crazy funk from a crazy-costumed geezer with an equally crazy name – one of those lost rare funky nuggets that's every bit as great as you might guess from the cover and title! Boobie Knight's a killer here – and works in a groove that's somewhere between Sly & The Family Stone and The Jimmy Castor Bunch – with all the freaky, fuzzy touches that reference might imply! His group has a definite guitar-heavy sound that's a bit blunted, and a bit trippy at times – but which also has a nice soulful edge at it's best moments – a sense of focus that gives the record more of a groove than other records of this nature from the period. The band here includes vocals by Al Johnson (who may well be the same Al Johnson who went onto later mellow soul fame) – and titles include the crazy "Earth Creature", plus "The Lovomaniacs", "Power Greater Than Man", "Feeling My Cheerios", and "Woman Will Make You Love".

Reissue pressing of this great Galt MacDermot soundtrack, featuring the totally cool sample for Busta Rhymes' big single last year, laid out in the track "Space". Lots of other cool spare funky ones, and a great record all the way through. Tight grooves, spare electric keyboards with a flat "Wu Tang" sound, and lots of choppy funky sounds. A must for sample heads and fans of off-kilter funky grooves alike! At one time, we had this for a very high price, but we managed to score a whole bunch at a new low cost.

New Henry ManciniPink Panther – Original Soundtrack (pink-colored vinyl) ... LP
RCA, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
Sure, you've heard it a million times – but it's still a fantastic soundtrack! Henry Mancini's whimsical scoring is a perfect touch for this classic Peter Sellers film – and it's made even better by the LA group of musicians who play the music – including Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Pete Jolly on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Larry Bunker on percussion – all very groovy players who really know how to make the whole thing sparkle with just the right touches of jazz! The classic "Pink Panther Theme" should be familiar enough to you, but there's loads of other nice numbers – like "Something For Sellers", "Piano & Strings", "The Village Inn", "The Tiber Tiwst", and "Cortina". Lots of jaunty jazz numbers – with clever breakaway solos in the Mancini mode! LP, Vinyl record album

The classic soundtrack to the original Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer "videocraft" animated TV special from 1964 – with timeless, cheerful music and lyrics by Johnny Marks – beautifully voiced by folksy balladeer Burl Ives! Includes the holiday pop standards "Silver And Gold", "A Holly Jolly Christmas", "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" and of course the title track – plus a bunch of numbers that are pretty wonderful, too, and nowhere near as overplayed – including "There's Always Tomorrow", "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Days", "We're A Couple Of Misfits", "We Are Santa's Elves" and more. Played by the Decca Concert Orchestra, the music is straight-up beautiful, and the soundtrack includes a vocal side and an instrumentals side. LP, Vinyl record album

NkengasDestruction (plus download) ... LP
Orbitone/Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Early work from a group who later grew into the famous Ikenga Super Stars Of Africa – recording here in London with a great raw sound – and an unusual mix of modes that's part Afro Funk, part something else entirely! The set's got that unique post-colonial vibe of some of the other great London recordings of the early 70s – such as work by Cymande or Demon Fuzz, both of whom have some dubby similarities to the Nkengas work on this set – possibly because the whole thing was served up for the Orbitone Records label – usually a home to sounds from Jamaica! There's a nice use of echo that really abstracts the basslines and percussion – although the grooves themselves are still more straightforward than any from Kingston at the time – and definitely echo the Nigerian roots of the group. Tracks have a lot of cool little funky corners and sharp edges that really set them apart – and titles include "London Special", "Ndu Bu Isi", "Anyi Bundi Igbo", "Jungle Beat", "Anyi Buofu", and "Ube Frank Special".

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 22.98
A stunner! High Plains Drifter collects material from the mighty Lee Perry during the crucially creative and fertile period between 1968 & 1973 – in which he founded the Upsetter imprint and had some chart success. It was such a productive period, resulting in hundreds of singles and a number of albums, that a whole bunch of incredible music made during it has been pretty badly overlooked over the years! This set on the always great Pressure Sounds puts together 20 of those – many of them simmering with quite a funky sound! Killer organ grooves and smoking rhythms highlight numbers by Val Bennett, The Mellowtones, The Ethiopians, Junior Byles and, of course, the amazing Upsetters! Glen Adams and Winston Wright handle those organs, sax by Tommy McCook, bass by Aston Barrett, trumpet by Bobby Ellis and other legendary instrumentalists, plus Lee Perry on percussion and production. Includes "Val Blows In" by Val Bennett & The Upsetters, "Boss" by Count Sticky & The Upsetters, "High Plains Drifter", "The Man With No Name" and "Amigo" by The Upsetters, "It's Growing" by Busty Brown & The Upsetters, "What's Wrong With You" by The Bleechers, "He Don't Love You" by The Silvertones, "Awake" by The Ethiopians, "A Big Joke" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Rockfort Psychedelion" by Count Sticky & The Upsetters, "Iniquity Workers" by The Faithful Brothers, "Rip Up Festival '71" by Junior Byles & Righteous Upsetters and more.

All tracks here were produced by Bunny Lee, at a variety of Kingston studios – in modes that lie equally between rocksteady and early reggae rhythms – with instrumentation from likely suspects who include Sly & Robbie on drum and bass, and either Winston Wright or Ansel Collins on organ. Titles include "Take Me Back", "Sunny Side Of The Sea", "Keep That Light", "Kiss Me Each Morning", "Time Has Come", "Blessed Are The Meek", and "Give Me Some More Loving". LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the most mindblowing record so far from the enigmatic Omar Souleyman – a set produced by Kieran Hebden with lots of weird, sharp edges – but in a way that still keeps all the core elements of Souleyman's music intact! Hebden doesn't do much more than bring the whole thing into focus – giving Omar better sound than ever before, and really setting up an amazing space for those frenetic guitar lines and super-fast percussion – which are then matched by these droning lyrics that are completely hypnotic! There's a cyclical quality to the tracks that's really sublime – and titles include "Nahy", "Wenu Wenu", "Ya Yumma", "Khattaba", "Warni Warni", and "Yagbuni". LP, Vinyl record album

Munster (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Really great early recordings from The Swell Maps – and a set of tracks that fits very well with their all-too-few albums on Rough Trade! The tracks here were all recorded at home, but don't differ that much from their later, "professional" releases – given the raw power of the group, and their keen ear for experimentation! As with the full albums, the work here swings between full-on punky tracks and more subtle, sonic passages – already extremely creative at this point, and even with some of that later Nikki Sudden charm showing through. The package comes with full notes from Sudden and Jowe Head – and titles include "Gramofonica", "Wireless", "Televisions", "Pet's Corner", "Shubunkin", "Full Moon Blam Full Moon", "God Save The Queen", "Johnny Seven", and "Sweet & Sour (parts 2, 3, & 4)".

The hippest side of the late 60s Latin Soul years – work from a number of tiny little New York labels – all of which are a good deal rarer than some of the bigger indies of the time! The collection here is totally great, and totally fresh – filled with numbers that were not even hits back in the day, and which are almost the Latin counterpart to funky 45s!

A stunning set of funky club tracks from Sheridan House Records – a later effort from Cali maestro Kent Harris – who'd previously given us some excellent soul singles in the 60s and 70s! The style here is less disco than it is an update of Harris' earlier soul music approach – served up with a similar emphasis on female singers, who get a really earnest, honest setting for their music – way more than just the usual disco diva modes! And the set's way more than just a compilation, too – as it's got these great notes, way more detailed than usual for Luv N Haight – which really tell the tale of the label, and the LA scene in the 70s as well. Features a huge amount of tracks – and titles include "Whip It On Me" by Deborah Foster, "Real Love" by Back To Back, "This Feeling Between Us" by Something Unique, "I'm Gonna Be Your Lover" by Jeanette Renee, "High School Love Affair" by Right Connection, "It Takes Money" by Deborah Foster, "Love Me" by Beverly Cason, "Tell Me How It Is" by Towana, "So Weak" by Tammy Hanson, "Sex" by Big Bundy, "It Takes Money" by Ty Karim, "Suspicion" by King James, "Keep On Doin Whatcha Doin" by Ty Karim & George Griffin, "Jungle Animal" by 2 Ana, and lots lots more!

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
The cover image looks old-timey, but the grooves on the set are totally modern – a wealth of wonderful funky numbers from the New Orleans scene of the 60s and 70s – just the kind of gems that made us love the previous two volumes in this series! We might well argue that this third collection is the coolest of the bunch – as it features some more obscure, overlooked gems from the Crescent City – filled with the kind of raw rhythms and driving grooves that always make Nola soul tracks so great! There's no hoke here at all – no Mardi Gras cliches nor pandering for the tourists – and instead, this stuff is at the cusp of the best bursting moment of pride and power for New Orleans – the kind of cuts cut at a time when the city was really discovering how great it could be. As with all Soul Jazz sets, the notes and package really live up to the quality of the music – and the set's overflowing with greatness, in a batch of 18 tracks that includes "What You Want" by Lee Dorsey & The Meters, "Got A Get My Baby Back Home" by Tony Owens, "Fairchild" by Willie West, "Go To The Mardi Gras" by Professor Longhair, "Trouble With My Lover" by Betty Harris, "Omar Khayyam" by The Rubaiyats, "Gossip Gossip" by Diamond Joe, "Fagged Out" by The Deacons, "The Book" by Eldridge Holmes, "We The People" by Allen Toussaint, "Jockey Ride (parts 1 & 2)" by The Explosions, and "Do It Fluid" by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
That's not a baby floating in the water on the cover, and the set's not a batch of familiar Nirvana or Sub Pop sounds – but instead a very well-done collection that gets at the much deeper scene in the Pacific Northwest during the late 80s and early 90s! Make no mistake, there's still plenty of fuzzy guitars and balls-out action on most of these tracks – but the overall execution is less standard, more unusual, and has a gritty, garagey intensity that so many of the bigger Seattle acts lost right away. And even though we lived through that time (and yes, bought our share of the records, too), there's still plenty here we'd never heard before – which is really saying a lot to the archive-digging crew at Soul Jazz! Titles "The System" by Attica, "Run Around" by Starfish, "Wench" by Bundle Of Hiss, "Fields" by Chemistry Set, "Bleed" by Thrillhammer, "AM FM" by Shug, "It's Getting Late" by Small Stars, "It Smiles" by Soylent Green, and "Debbie Had A Dream" by Treehouse.

Apart from one 1940 track, most of the music here comes from 1960 – a pivotal year when South African music was really growing up – pulling together rootsy elements and inflecting them with some of the key changes happening in the scene in the wake of rich developments in jazz – including big influences from the modernists who would move onto work in Europe and the UK just a few years later. Many numbers here have a leaping, joyous sort of groove – often with a key instrument in the lead voice – such as a tenor, flute, whistle, or trumpet – often upfront in the mix even more than the vocals. Titles include "7 Up Swing" by Abafana Flute Jive, "Nanku" by Doris Mkhize & The Cement Mixers, "Inhliziyo Yam" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, "Tholi Bare" by Lulu Sibeko & Sedgewick Brothers, "Sophtown Special" by Sophtown Cool Seven, "Kwela Rich" by Richard Nombali, and "Saya Vuma" by Sample Siroqo.

VariousThai? Dai! – The Heavier Sound Of The Luk Thung Underground ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
One of the coolest collections of underground Thai rock we've seen – and it certainly is The Heavier Sound Of the Luk Thung Underground – including a uniquely Thai vision flavored with a Black Sabbath riff, psych makeovers of Thai folklore, and a bunch great tunes that meld Bangkok life with western garage and psychedelia masterfully! All of the tunes are heavy in their own way, but it's by no means heavy in a simple hard rock way – loads of impassioned vocals, astounding percussion, tripped out guitar and other strings and woozy organ keep the arrangements exciting, and the otherworldly aspects play nice with accessible melodies. Titles include "Kuen Kuen Lueng Leung" (the aforementioned heady take on Sabbath's "Iron Man"), "Ruk Kun Samong" by Plearn Promdan, "Pai Joi" by Rung Petchburi, "Nam Mun Pang" by Sroeng Santi, "Dub Fai Kui Gun" by Sroeng Santi and more. 14 massive slabs of heavy Thai psych in all!

VariousWorld Psychedelic Classics 3 – Love's A Real Thing – The Funky Fuzzy Sounds Of West Africa (with download) ... LP
Luaka Bop/Stones Throw, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 23.98
A really mind-bending collection of African grooves – one that digs deep into the West African scene of the early 70s – and comes up with a massive batch of tunes that really opens up our understanding of the music! The sound here isn't just 70s Afro Funk – as the tunes include a range of tripped-out styles that make the best use of electric instrumentation, psychedelic production, and important influences from American soul artists at the time. There's some amazing guitar on some of the best tracks – ringing out with a sound that's chromatically complex while also being tripped-out and funky – in a way that complicates the rhythms without totally taking them apart. If you've dug the tunes on previous sets like Africa Funk or Ghana Soundz, this is one to take that sound to the next level – and really open up your ears! Titles include "Keleya" by Moussa Doumbia, "Love's A Real Thing" by The Super Eagles, "Minsato Le Mi Dyihome" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou Dahomey, "Porry" by Sorry Bamba, "Allah Wakbarr" by Ofo & The Black Company, "Sanjina" by Orchestre Regional De Kayes, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, and "Zinabu" by Bunzu Sounds.

Bunny LeeFull Up – Early Reggae Productions 1968 to 1972 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Late October, 2014
Mindblowing sounds from the great Bunny Lee – and exactly the kind of collection that makes us love the Pressure Sounds label so much! The track selection is wonderful – and most numbers are balanced in a unique space between reggae and rocksteady, and often have some crucial influences from American soul and funk as well – but they come across with a mode that's very different from more standard reggae, especially the style of the music that would be more codified a few years later. Instead, there's a really rich sense of experimentation here – as Bunny Lee and his All Stars work on instrumental tracks, or alongside other key artists like Delroy Wilson, Rico Rodriguez, Tommy McCook, U Roy, or Winston Williams. Some tunes have amazingly trippy touches – and a few points even mix in some wild moog too – and titles include "Double Attack", "Ivan Itler The Conqueror", "Scarface", "Joe Lewis", "War", "Wet Vision", "When I Get My Freedom", "Smooth & Sorts", and "Death Rides A Horse".

Ubuntu (Netherlands), 1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Around November 1, 2014
A treasure trove of South African sounds from mid-century – served up here in a mix of modes that really gets at the complexity of the scene at the time! There's a lot more jazz at play here than in other African musical communities – often served up in small combo ways that mix in local instrumentation, including some especially great guitar and flute! Most tracks here were only ever issued as 78rpm singles – and even without any booklet of deep historical notes, the music here is more than enough to tell the tale of this unique moment – tremendous sounds that really have a truly timeless feel. Titles include "Broadway" by Alexander Sweet Flutes, "Skanda Mayeza" by Benoni Flute Quintet, "Tshidi" by Martindale All Stars, "Johnny" by Twisting Sisters, "Paulina" by The V Dolls, "Egoli" by Mighty Queens, "Ziyavuma Mambo" by Aron & Pieter, and "Nozipho" by Ndlovu Brothers.

James Brown recorded a few different Christmas records back in the 60s – but this stunner may well be the best of the bunch – a killer record that not only fills the need for James Brown Holiday tunes, but which also more than lives up to his non-Christmas gems for King Records too! There's a nice mix of funk and soul throughout – and the album features the incredible hit "Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto", plus the funky "Tit For Tat", the groovy "Christmas Is Coming", and the soulful "Let's Unite The Whole World at Christmas". Also features some stone-cold non-holiday cuts – like "In The Middle", "Say It Loud", and "Believers Shall Enjoy". Plus, James is standing on the front in a Santa suit – looking mighty funky!

New Billy ButlerPlays Via Galactica ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wow! Funky guitarist Billy Butler runs through Galt MacDermot's score for Via Galactica, with music conducted by the funky composer himself. The sound is spacey and electronic, with drums by Bernard Purdie, bass by Wilbur Bascomb, and piano by Galt himself. Tracks include "Hush", "Life Wins", "400 Girls Ago", and "Other Side of the Sky". Not really a breakbeat record, but with a bunch of cool spacey moments and some very nice spacey laidback sounds. We used to sell this for a lot more, but we found a bunch at a low price, so take advantage of our good luck and get this lost record at a nice new price! LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff – and a very sharp album cut by Willie during the Latin soul era, featuring a bunch of tracks that veer more towards the boogaloo side of things than his later albums! The groove is nice and hard – stripped down with the youthful energy that Willie brought to the scene at the time – and the record features great vocals by Hector Lavoe, Yayo El Indo, and Elliot Romero. Features the wonderful piano-bassed groover – "Jazzy" – which spirals out with descarga-like energy! Other great tracks include the boogaloo numbers "Skinny Papa", "Willie Baby", "Willie Whopper", and "El Malo" – but the whole album's a winner! LP, Vinyl record album

Early art punk genius from Devo – the amazing underground material from the pre-WB years – when they were still Ohio college students! Hardcore Volume 1 features 4 track recordings made in the mid 70s, including some early versions of tracks they'd re-recorded later for their first proper album – including "Jocko Homo", "Mongoloid", "Soo Bawls" and their deranged cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" – and a whole bunch more that have only ever been heard by hardcore spuds. It has a cruder sound than their pop years and a darker, chillier vibe that's pretty incredible, but the concept is in full form, even at this early point! Other tracks include "Mechanical Man", "I'm A Potato", "Uglatto", "Stop Look And Listen"and more. LP, Vinyl record album

The record falls in the same camp as The Meters – and although Dorsey's work has vocals, the choppy instrumental backing is pure Crescent City all the way – even though the cover art oddly features a bunch of teenagers in New York City! Titles include the monster funky break track "Get Out Of My Life Woman", the wonderfully funky "Ride Your Pony", plus loads of other nice ones like "The Kitty Cat Song", "So Long", "Work Work Work", "Shortnin Bread", "Can You Hear Me", and "People I Wish You Could See".

Ubiquity, 2009. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The most deeply soulful record we've ever heard from Shawn Lee – a massive tribute to the soul sounds of the 60s and 70s, served up with help from a host of hip singers who include Darondo, Nicole Willis, Karime Kendra, and Fanny Franklin! Lee's grooves are as funky as ever, but the instrumentation's also a bit fuller too – touched with elements of 60s Motown, Memphis, and Muscle Shoals – produced perfectly, and delivered with a depth that we hardly would have expected from Shawn a few short years ago! The album's a real revelation – one that grabs us with a similar surprise as Jazzanova's excellent Of All The Things – which is another set that gets a classic soul sound as right as this one. Most tracks are Lee originals, but so well penned, you'd swear they were 60s soul tracks you'd forgotten about – titles that include "Soul In The Hole", "Land Of Soul", "Too Tired To Sleep", "Playboy Bunny", "Time To Say Goodbye", "The Stuff", "Something", "Whatever Side You're On", and "Jigsaw".

Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place.

Hope Street (Australia), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pretty huge leap forward for The Bombay Royale – the Bollywood funk-inspired combo who bring some Indian charm to the fertile Australian funk scene – and a whole lot more! Funk-era Bollywood soundtracks are still a huge part of the what they do, but there's a whole lot more going on here – from lush strings, to spacey disco, to Blaxploitation and beyond – it's richly layered, and mighty impressive. It's also much more than a mere global cinematic funk pastiche – the songs themselves are exciting and stand strongly for their own merits. The dual male and female vocals are excellent, and the instrumentation is great, too – with sitar, tabla and other Eastern elements, some tripped out synth and keys, brass and heavy drums. Includes "Ankhiyan", "Wild Stallion Mountain", "Khubsoorat Bewafa", "Henna Henna", "Tere Bina", "Hooghly Night Patrol", "(Give Me Back My) Bunty Bunty", "Gyara 59", "The Bombay Twist", "The Island Of Dr Electrico", "Falcon's Landing" and "The River".

The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition!

Genius early work from a young Barney Wilen – an album issued in the US during a brief time when the French tenor star was turning a lot of heads on the American scene! The date's a great illustration of Wilen's amazingly deft talents on the tenor right from the start – a keen ear for the best changes of American jazzmen of the generation, but a depth of soul that really points the way towards some of Barney's more expressive modes in later years! Tracks are relatively short, but he gets a hell of a lot into such a small space – and the group features alto from Hubert Fol, piano from Nico Buninck, bass from Lloyd Thompson, and drums from Al Levitt. Titles are mostly originals, played with a sharp, crisp edge – and tunes include "Brainstorm", "Papiermento", "Blue Hubert", "The Office", and "Spracklin". LP, Vinyl record album

There's some great jazz elements in the music at times – thanks especially to wonderful vibes from the great Larry Bunker, who also plays a fair bit of percussion too – and two numbers feature sublime vocals by Beverly Ford, a singer with a space-age range to match that of Bas Sheva or Yma Sumac, but with an almost-electronic quality that rivals that of Mary Mayo with Dick Hyman.

There's a powerful sound here that's completely without referent, but immediately gripping – a blend of familiar and strange elements that really gives the record an other-worldly quality, and which is further enhanced by the echoey production used throughout! As with other excellent reissues of Turkish music in this series, the album is supported by notes in English, and other instrumentation – an amazing document of an artist who was never that well known outside her native land, partly because the repressive government forbid her to travel for many years!

New Penny PennyShaka Bundu (with download) ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The debut album from Penny Penny – and a really unique record that's gone onto have legendary status over the years! Penny Penny was an little-known laborer, working far from the music business – but burst out strongly with this album's unique hybrid of contemporary rhythms and older South African vocal modes – a style that has a mellower house rhythm bubbling through many tracks, yet served up with a style that's nicely rough around the edges – and way different than some of the slicker Afro pop of the time. The vocals – both great lead and chorus – really shine through in the approach – and the keyboards and beats feel more like they're added in afterward – still important, but almost a more subtle prompting of the groove. Titles include "Shaka Bundu", "Shichangani", "Shibandza", "Nzihere Bhi", "Dance Khomela", and "Milandu Bhe". LP, Vinyl record album

New Southern University Jazz Ensemble/Alvin BatisteLive At The 1971 American College Jazz Festival ... LP
Jazzstronauts/Family Groove, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that's gotta be one of the most righteous school band records ever – way more than just a bunch of students doing big band numbers, and instead a killer batch of spiritual jazz numbers, directed by the legendary Alvin Batiste! The record's one of a rare few 70s sets of this nature – one that shows a group of younger musicians really reaching out for bold new sounds – every bit as complex and soulful as work on labels like Strata East or Black Jazz, with a firey power that signals a new generation of the jazz underground! And while Batiste is at the head of the group, there's plenty of other great younger players too – including Henry Butler on piano, Henry Scott on flute, Kirk Ford on tenor, Reginald Houston on baritone, Raymond Deggs on trumpet, Julius Farmer on bass, and Herman Jackson on drums! Side one features burning ensemble numbers that include "Music Came", "Tunjii", "Straight Life", and "North American Idiosyncrasy" – and side two features early material by the Henry Butler Trio, on titles that include "So What", "In My Solitude", and "Milestones". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousCountry Soul Sisters 2 – Women In Country Music 1956 to 1979 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The tough, but tender ladies of 60s and 70s country music – sweet, soaring and soulful tunes from a bunch of women who'd eventually crossover to mainstream superstardom – and others who are mostly beloved these days to us vintage honky tonk and country soul diggers! The Country Soul Sisters series does a terrific job of highlighting the strains of soul and county-fied funk rumbling underneath so many great 60s and 70s Nashville productions – something we've tried to convince folks of for years – and beyond doing us that cultural solid, it's a straight-up fantastic batch of groovy music. Vol 2 is even better than the first – with tunes by Dolly Parton, Jeannie C Riley, Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, Tammy Wynette, Bobbie Gentry, Jean Shepard, Kitty Wells and many more! Includes Includes "Little Town Square" by Jeannie C. Riley, "Color Him Father" by Linda Martell, "The Bargain Store" by Dolly Parton, "My Baby Walked Right Out On Me" by Wanda Jackson, "Okolona River Bottom Band" by Bobbie Gentry, Linda Ronstadt's country chanteuse take on Dylan's "Baby, You've On My Mind", "I'm Alone" by Jean Shepard, "Your Ole Handy Man" by Jan Howard, "I Never Said I Love You" by Barbara Mandrell, "If I Can't Be Your Woman" by Lynn Anderson and more.

New VariousCult Cargo – Grand Bahama Goombay ... LP
Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from the Bahamas – a whole bunch of groups that will show you that Nassau had a lot more to offer than The Beginning Of The End! The groove here is totally wonderful – somewhat like American funk of the late 60s and early 70s, but served up with some very unusual rhythmic patterns too – a bit Jamaican at times, but certainly not reggae – and somewhat sunny and Caribbean styled, but not in a way that's cheesy or filled with any hokey island-styled stereotypes. Instead, the tunes are deeply funk and soulful – grooving with plenty of dark edges and gritty instrumentation that's often heavy on the guitar. Many numbers have vocals, and those are great too – and as usual with the Numero label, the whole thing's put together with amazing notes and packaging, so that you get a full history lesson and a heck of a lot of photos to support the music too! Titles include "Gonna Build A Nation" by Cyril Ferguson, "Mustang Sally", "I Am The Man For You Baby", and "Funky Fever" by Jay Mitchell, "Theme From Shaft" by Esquires LTD, "Gimme Some Skin (inst)" by Frank Penn, "Words To My Song" by Dry Bread, "People Won't Change" by Willpower, "Take Five" by Ozzie Hall, "Watcha Gonna Do Bout It" and "The Time For Loving Is Now" by Mustangs, "Honesty Is The Best Policy" by Gospel Chandeliers, and "Don't Touch That Thing" by Sylvia Hall. 2LP set also features a bonus instrumental version of "Don't Touch That Thing" by Sylvia Hall!

New VariousMukunguni – New Recordings From Coast Province Kenya (2 x 10" LPs with CD) ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 x 10" LPs & CD Gat ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary sounds from Kenya, but music with a very timeless feel – recorded live at different locations in Mukungi village, and often just featuring spare instrumentation and a bit of voice! The quality of the work goes way beyond other ethnographic recordings – as the sound quality is impeccable, and really brings out a lot of the unusual sounds in these styles – music that mixes elements from a range of percussion instruments, plus metal rings, hand claps, bells, oboe, rattles, and more – even some bottle tops, a metal tray, and the bung'o horn! The vocals are often relatively rootsy, and some tracks are all instrumental – and the package is as compelling a contemporary collection as some of the Honest Jons sets of work from much older years. Titles include "Bamba", "Bung'O", "Ndema", "Dena", "Mambodze", "Matatizo", "Pepo Mlume", "Chela", and "Gaserego". LP, Vinyl record album
