New Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Sealed .... $5.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice mellow grooves with a decent enough jazzy feel. Titles include "Dancin Singin", "We Love To Party", "Brother To Brother", "Vibrations", and "I'm Gonna Take Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

El Michels AffairCreation/Behind The Blue Curtains ... 7-inch
Truth & Soul, 2005. New Copy .... $5.99
Wicked stuff – and 2 tracks that offer a whole new take on the modern sound of deep funk! "Creation" is a weird little offbeat number that snaps along the beats, blasts them with horns, and almost goes for a Chicago Brunswick sort of style! There's a bit of strings lilting along with the grooves, and even some vibes that seem to sneak out from time to time! The vibes come in even more strongly on the flipside – making "Behind The Blue Curtains" sound somewhere between the work of Lionel Hampton on Brunswick, and some of the recent instrumental funk from the Madlib side of the spectrum! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jefferson AirplaneCrown Of Creation (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Culture Factory, 1969. New Copy .... $16.99 19.99
Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – and Crown Of Creation was both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach! Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-based songs that build into heavier rock as the record plays on – with some really great use of sound effects for added drama here and there! Titles include "Lather", "In Time", "Star Track", "Chushingura", "If You Feel", "Ice Cream Phoenix", "The House At Pooniel Corners" and more. CD

New Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... CD
Passin' Thru/Universal Sound (UK), 1971. New Copy .... $22.99
Reedman Oliver Lake at his most creative – stepping out here on a sublime set of 70s improvisations – all put together with a really spiritual feel! There's a very open, collaborative feel to the music – and the set was recorded in St Louis, at a time when Lake was a key part of that city's scene – and who here also seems able to attract some other musicians from the AACM in Chicago as well! As a result, the album's a wonderful document of the new ideas bursting forth at the start of the 70s – that richly creative moment when local scenes were coming together in various cities to find new ways of jazz beyond Coltrane and Dolphy – giving a player like Lake some of the most imaginative outlets of his career. Oliver plays alto, soprano, flute, and other small instruments – and other players include Baikida Carroll and Floyd Leflore on trumpets, Joseph Bowie on trombone, John Hicks on piano, Clovis Bordeaux on electric piano, Don Officer on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on drums, and Don Moye on congas too. Titles include "Africa", "Tse Lane", "Eriee", "Zip", and "Electric Freedom". CD

Leon's CreationThis Is The Beginning ... LP
Studio 10, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Early grooves from Leon Pattillo – later a club maestro, but working here in a much rootsier style at the head of Leon's Creation – an ultra-cool funk combo from San Francisco! The album's got a groove that really lives up to the promise of its title – a heady brew of funky tracks played by a tight young group – often with vocals in the lead from Leon and a female singer, but sometimes featuring other group members – adding a nice sense of variety while the players riff away with boundless energy! Pattillo plays some great organ at times – and other instrumentation includes guitar, bass, trumpet, tenor, and even some cool violin – and titles include "Confusion", "If I Had The Power", "Sightless", "Back Roads", "This Is The Beginning", and "Mirage".

9th CreationBubble Gum ... LP
Rite Track, 1975. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group – reissued here with its original title and cover art! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time, especially Pleasure, who are the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

New Shleu ShleuShleu Shleu Et Top Shleu (Back To Stay/Les Bibles De Orchestras/Original Shleu Shleu/Creation) ... CD
Rotel, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs .... Out Of Stock
Four great albums from this hip Haitian group – all packaged together in one nicely-priced set! First up is Back To Stay – a set that features Haitian grooves, but from the New York scene – making for an excellent mix of modes that really keeps things interesting! The core sounds have that bouncy vibe you'd expect from the Caribbean, but there's definitely some horn arrangements that show some American influences from funk and Latin, and maybe even a bit of jazz – all well-recorded here with a style that avoids any of the too-polished modes that can sometimes hold back a record like this. Tony Moise handles most of the arrangements and music – and also plays lead tenor – and titles include "Haiti", "Mariage", "Devine", and "Boat People". The other three albums – Les Bibles De Orchestras, Original Shleu Shleu, and Creation – all have a similar feel – and the 2CD package features 25 tracks in all! CD

New MomusTender Pervert ... LP
Creation (UK), 1988. Used .... Out Of Stock
One of the most biting albums ever recorded by UK singer/songwriter Momus – a set of songs that comes off sounding like sweet pop tunes, but which deals with topics like closeted homosexuality, misguided Marxist politics, pedophilia, and general seediness overall! There's a really striking mismatch of styles here that makes the whole thing work – with elements of tighter mid 80s pop creeping into Momus' musical styles, as the lyrics themselves take an even darker turn than on any of his previous records. The titles alone should give a good picture of the work – and tunes include "In The Sanatorium", "A Complete History Of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17-24", "The Angels Are Voyeurs", "The Homosexual", and "I Was A Maoist Intellectual".

Hamiet BluiettNali Kola ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1989. New Copy .... $11.99 16.99
A real standout session from reedman Hamiet Bluiett – a record that's heavy on Afro-centric influences, with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a rare jazz combo appearance for the time by trumpeter Hugh Masekela! There's kind of an earthy loft jazz sort of feel to the date – almost spontaneous creation, as Bluiett plays baritone sax and flute, and Masekela trumpet and flugelhorn, over percussion from Chief Bey, Titos Sompa, Seku Tonga, and Okeryema Asante – the last of whom we know from his record for the Black Fire label. Plunky plays soprano sax on one number – furthering the Black Fire connection – and other musicians include Donald Smith on piano and Billy Spaceman Patterson on guitar, each on one track. Quincy Troupe delivers some hip poetry on the cut "Snake Back Solos" – and other titles include "Bouka", "Enum", "Broken Sticks", and "Nali Kola". CD

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleArmageddon (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold .... $9.99
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran – almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time – Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba – a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts – conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 – with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" – a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb! CD

Dust To Digital, 2005. New Copy .... $18.99
A really beautiful look at Lonnie Holley – the Alabama-based singer/artist who's rose to great attention in recent years, thanks to his records and his compelling creations! The film follows Holley as he works on a few key assemblages – and offers up some of the deeper personal issues that have led him down his artistic path – using creation as a way to find peace within a larger world filled with conflict. A great accompaniment to his musical releases – and a completely different side of the artist. DVD

Isley BrothersIt's Our Thing ... LP
T Neck, 1969. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A stone classic from the Isleys – the album that kicked off their successful T-Neck label, and established that mighty Isleys sound that would have such a huge influence in the 70s! The title cut of the set – "It's Your Thing" – is a well-known classic that really sets the tone for the rest of the record – mixing guitar and chunky rhythms into a righteous funky style of soul that was miles away from the Brothers' earlier work on Motown and RCA. And believe it or not, the rest of the record's even better than the title cut – filled with sinister, sexy numbers that bristle with energy that's still heard best here at the point of its creation! Other gems include "Give the Women What They Want", "He's Got Your Love", "I Know Who You Been Socking It To", "Don't Give It Away", "He's Got Your Love", "Save Me", "Feel Like The World", and "Somebody Been Messin".

Frank McComb1995 Bootleg ... CD
Boobeescoot, 1995/2006. Used .... $8.99
A revised version of Frank McComb's legendary first album – recorded in the mid 90s for Motown, but never released until now! The album is brilliant from the very first note – a record that easily puts Frank in a proud linage that includes Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, which makes it completely hard to believe that Motown never decided to issue the set. Frank's vocals and keyboards are immediately timeless – soaring out through a set of original work that somehow seems oddly familiar, but which is all the creation of a young soul star on the rise. Even more incredible is the fact that although this "new classic" sound is one that's not unfamiliar now, few people were working in the idiom back in the 90s – making Frank's debut even more incredible! The package is issued by Frank himself with homemade artwork (that's not the cover Motown intended!) – with a slightly different list of 9 tracks that include "24/365/10", "Only In My Dreams", "More Than Friends", "Intimate Time", "Somebody Like You", "Tomorrow's Not Promised", "The Sun", and "Do You Remember Love?"

Saturn, 1965. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A fantastic Sun Ra album – with otherworldly sounds that perfectly sum up his unique jazz vision! The album features material recorded in New York in 1961, and released on Saturn in 1965 – but whatever the date, it's still light years ahead of its time! Ra plays piano, as usual, but he also works with some beautiful instruments of his own creation – including the strangely wonderful Sun Harp, the Dragon Drum, and the Spiral Percussion Gong. The percussion instruments are heard to great effect on the track "Solar Drums" – which has an echoey percussive sound that's really wonderful! The rest of the group includes John Gilmore, Ronnie Boykins, Pat Patrick, Clifford Thornton, Marshall Allen, and Clifford Jarvis – classic Ra players all of them – and other titles include "Lights On A Satellite", "Kosmos In Blue", and "Cluster Of Galaxies".

New Irmin Schmidt & Inner Space (Can)Kamasutra ... LP
Crippled Dick (Germany), 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $18.99
A lost soundtrack as brilliant as we hoped it'd be when we were first hipped to its existence – made for the late 60s German erotica production Kamasutra – Consummation Of Love from composer Irmin Schmidt and Inner Space, the group that was soon to be Can! It’s a really interesting dynamic, some pretty recognizable Can style soundscapes, with ultra hypnotic, actually kind of funky percussion & rhythms, fuzzed out guitars, and an incredible groove. It has some Eastern strings and other Far East flourishes inspired by the subject matter and its place of creation, but you get the sense that the musicians either had full creative freedom to do their thing, or simply couldn't shake off their idiosyncratic genius for a paycheck – it feels like the pre Krautrock era trailblazing that it actually is! A few of the tracks have vocals, one with female vocalist Margareta Juvan, plus Inner Space/Can men Malcolm Mooney and Michael Karoli – but for the most part it's sultry psyche cinematic instrumental grooves. Amazing! Titles include "Indiches Panorama" (I-VI), "I'm Hiding My Nightingale", "Im Tempel", "In Kalkutta" (I-III), "Im Orient" (I & II), "There Was A Man" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Great collectors, and great grooves too – a hip batch of early 80s numbers that are all pretty darn rare – and which really sound great together on this well-chosen set! As with the previous volumes, there's plenty to love here – lean, clean dancefloor numbers from those great post-disco years when soul still mattered to plenty of clubbers – and was undergoing a wonderful transformation in styles!

Killer Latin soul! This record is one of the hardest to find from the late 60's boogaloo era, and it's a massive stormer filled with tasty grooves! The band is small and tight, with a 2-sax frontline, for an extra-soulful sound. Vocals are in English and Spanish, and the album wails away like a siren out of control. Things kick off with the organ-heavy instrumental, "Camel Walk" – then they leap into one of the catchiest vocal numbers ever from Fania, the tasty "Afro-Shingaling" – which starts with Ray Ramirez shouting "I just come from Africa – and I learned to do the Shing-a-ling!" Other nice ones include "Chevere", "Guajira", and "Creation" – but the whole thing's great! LP, Vinyl record album

Cosmic Tones is one of the Ra's greatest albums for Saturn – a record that has him playing clavioline and echoey "cosmic side drums" with a great spacey sound that was probably arrived at through some primitive reverb and echo techniques! The overall effect is everything you'd imagined about Sun Ra – a mixture of hardbop, soul jazz, and some spacey musings that are definitely out of this world! Titles include "Moon Dance", "Voice of Space", and "Adventure Equation". Art Forms features material recorded in New York in 1961, and released on Saturn in 1965 – but whatever the date, it's still light years ahead of its time! Ra plays piano, as usual, but he also works with some beautiful instruments of his own creation – including the strangely wonderful Sun Harp, the Dragon Drum, and the Spiral Percussion Gong. The percussion instruments are heard to great effect on the track "Solar Drums" – which has an echoey percussive sound that's really wonderful! The rest of the group includes John Gilmore, Ronnie Boykins, Pat Patrick, Clifford Thornton, Marshall Allen, and Clifford Jarvis – classic Ra players all of them – and other titles include "Lights On A Satellite", "Kosmos In Blue", and "Cluster Of Galaxies".

New RevolutionariesDrum Sound – More Gems From The Channel One Dub Room – 1974 to1980 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure Sounds has ever compiled – benchmark work all the way – from the chugging, echoey guitar groove, to the heavy bass lines, to the sublime vocals. Amazing stuff mined from singles on the Channel One, Well Charge and Disco Mix labels. The set starts out with the incredible "Kunta Kinte Version One" – one of the most legendary dub plates ever, and other titles include "Hotter Fire Version", "Rootes Dub", "Pride & Ambition Version", "Dunkirk", "War Version", "Jah Creation Version", "Rude On Marchus Version", "Swell Headed", "Catonine Version", "Tivoli Skank", "Plantation Heights Version" and more.

New Michal UrbaniakEcstasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Marlin/Clinck (Japan), 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soul-based albums in Michal Urbaniak's catalog – a session originally done with TK records during the height of their dancefloor years, fitted up with some really great clubby grooves! The sound here is a mix of fusion and soul – done in a way that still gives Urbaniak plenty of room to solo on violin, sax, and keys – but which also sets up a warmer groove overall and really lets the vocals come center stage. Urszula Dudziak sings on about half the tracks – and other vocals are by Kenyatta and Calvin Brown – and the jazzy inflections of the tune really set this apart from lots of the other Miami disco on Marlin, giving the record a much deeper feel overall, and a quality that's held up very nicely through the years! Dark edges mix with warmer moments nicely, almost in a Roy Ayers way – and titles include "A Day In The Park", "Just A Funky Feeling", "Body Rub", "Ecstasy", "Creation", and "Want's Ta Make You Feel Good".

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The real sound of the British underground at the end of the 60s – a stellar 3CD package that goes way beyond the oft-heard modes from the classic rock and progressive years! Sure, all the big names from those years are totally great – but they've also obscured the really rich tapestry of lesser-knowns who were working in London and beyond at the time – extremely inventive groups who work here in a blistering array of fuzzy, freaky, and mad mod styles! The book's got plenty of details on the 65 tracks included in the box set – more than enough info to help situate these really unique sounds, and no doubt start you digging for more in the future. Yet there's hardly any need to dig when you've got a set this great – a package that includes "Pretty Colours" by Deep Feeling, "Ebeneezer Beaver" by The Mirage, "Amanda Jane" by West Coast Consortium, "Love" by Shy Limbs, "Santa Lucia" by Respect, "Iridescent Butterfly" by Fat Mattress, "Story Book" by Alan Bown, "Just Another Day" by Neon Pearl, "I'll Be Late For Tea" by Blossom Toes, "Am I Glad To See You" by The In Crowd, "Busy Bee" by Tintern Abbey, "Fillin A Gap" by Paper Bubble, "Creation" by Beau, and "Hurry On Sundown" by Hawkwind Zoo.

Another incredible volume in the Soulful Thangs series – easily one of the greatest for late nite soul and rare harmony vocals! The package has a beautifully drifting sound throughout – that mellow as mellow can be soul that was made most perfectly at the end of the 60s and into the 70s – recorded with a real focus on the voice, and just enough light instrumentation to allow the tracks to float along on a pillow of sound! 23 tracks in all – including "Hey You Don't Fight It" by The Montclairs, "Just Ask Me" by Soul Superbs, "How Do You Say Goodbye" by Together, "Con Me" by Paragons, "Why Is There No Trace Of You" by Fourth Creation, "This Time" by Family Connection, "Man From The Sky" by Carlos Wright, "Where Will I Go" by Brief Encounter, "I Do Love You" by Joe Bataan, "I'm In Love" by Len Woods, and "You Pay For Love" by The Crusaders.

New Rodney FranklinRodney Franklin/You'll Never Know ... CD
Columbia/Superbird (UK), 1980. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from Rodney Franklin – one of our favorite soulful fusion players of the era – and 2 albums back-to-back! The Rodney Franklin album is a keyboard delight through and through – and Rodney plays both acoustic and electric piano, often on the same track – which creates this nicely expanded sound that works well with the album's tight arrangements! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix too – some rhythms that make a few numbers great groovers, courtesy of Tom Tom arrangements – and some other full moments handled by Patrick Williams. Titles include a wonderful version of "Windy City" – the cut you might know from a classic Carl Davis recording – plus "On The Path", "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Life Moves On", "Creation", and "In The Center". You'll Never Know is more fully-formed genius from Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Rodney again plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man".

New Brute ForceExtemporaneous ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest singer/songwriter albums of the late 60s – and one of the rarest, too! Brute Force is essentially the brainchild of one Stephen Friedland, a songwriter for the Tokens, Cyrkle, the Creation and other late 60s figures – who combined the fey, iconoclastic wit of Nilsson and early Randy Newman with razor sharp, trippy as hell improvisational lyrics and commentaries. It's truly like nothing else of the time – with stream of consciousness lyrics, monologues and stage patter that's easily as weirdly compelling as the tunes. The album essentially documents a 1969 performance in New York, full of breezy piano tunes and crazily topical, multi-personality songs and storytelling. Incredibly strange, but great! Tracks include "I Love To Hear A Baby Cry", "King Of Fuh" (which was released as a single on Apple Records – for about 10 seconds), "The Sirens Cry", "Five Minutes For Peace", "Don't Parinoi It/Enjoy It", "The Reds Are Yellow", The Big Burp Theory" and more, plus five bonus tracks.

New Charles CohenMusic For Dance & Theater ... LP
Morphine (Netherlands), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs .... Out Of Stock
Hardly the regular sort of music you'd expect for dance or theater – as all the tracks here are the creation of Charles Cohen – an overlooked American electronic pioneer, and one with a great ear for unusual sounds and styles! The music is almost all performed on analogue synthesizers – and often balances perfectly between cosmic soundscapes and more creative passages – some of which really show Cohen's strong talent for creating unusual sounds. Yet unlike other musicians of this nature, Charles is never out to shock or overwhelm – and instead has this minimal, organic sense to his music – which often makes you feel like there's a lot more "heart" inside than usual. Titles include "The Street", "Velcro Dance", "Water", "Bell Jar", "Blue Krishna", "Tubs", and "Sunrise Women/Men". LP, Vinyl record album

The grooves here are every bit as gritty as previous Jazzman outings to Texas, Florida, and the Midwest – and the package offers up a few classics, some unreleased numbers, and a bunch of tunes we've never heard before – all supported by the kind of in-depth notes that Jazzman does better than anyone else! And sure, we've been digging funky 45s for years – but its sets like this that almost get us more excited in the music than the originals – thanks to the overall conception and quality of the work. Titles include "Creation Of Music" by Primitive, "Darkness" by Gamith, "Just Take Your Time" by Innersouls, "Super Good" by Dynamite Singletary, "Funky Soul Brother" by The Soul Drifters, "The Road" by Communicators & Black Experience Band, "Theme Of Blackbyrds" by The Black Exotics, "Good Time" by George Campbell, "Funky Mind" by Donnie Brown, "Doing What You Need To Do" by Anthony Burns, "JD's Funky Party Time" by JD, "Bad Woman" by Frankie & The Damons, "Ease It To Me" by Shirlean Williams & The Tempo's Band, "Stand Up & Be A Man (part 1)" by Sundia, and "You Ain't Miss It" by Roy Roberts.

A great look at one of the more modern sides of our fair city – a beautiful book that focuses on the Lake Shore Drive apartments of architect Mies Van Der Rohe! Mies had a huge influence on the city's look in the postwar years – and some of his most striking creations are a set of apartment buildings at the cusp of Lake Shore as it hugs the shore of Lake Michigan – beautifully modern buildings that still have a tremendous sense of form, style, and purpose all these many years later – captured here in an array of well-done black and white photographs that showcase the buildings inside and out. The book offers shots both inside and out, as well as architectural plans and other images too – and also features notes in German and English. 90 pages, hardcover, and done with a sharp sense of style!

Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 29CDs & Book .... $199.99
A treasure trove of studio and live recordings by one of our favorite singers ever – the incredible Claude Nougaro, a French vocalist of the postwar years, and a master of many styles that included jazz, samba, and bossa nova! Nougaro had a unique talent for penning French lyrics to American and Brazilian tunes – and during the 60s, he rose to fame through his inventive compositions, unique vocalizations, and keen ear for a jazzy groove. His work of the 70s progressed with an even deeper exploration of modern jazz and Brazilian idioms – and as the 80s approached, he stretched out into even more complicated styles of his own. Nougaro's growth over the years is tremendous – and his work comes across with a sound that is really unique, and which stands as some of the greatest mainstream French work of his era – on a par with that of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Fontaine! This 29 CD package goes farther than any previous collection of work from Nougaro – and offers the CD debut of the albums Nougaro 79 and Au New Morning, and a reworking of Une Voice Dix Doigts – plus a range of great records for various labels – including early 10" records, seminal full albums, and later great sides – as well as some bonus tracks too. Includes the albums Bidonville, Petit Taureau, Soeur Ame, Locomotiv D'Or, Recreation, Mon Assassin, Plume D'Ange, Femmes Et Famines, Chansongs, L'Enfant Phare, Assez, Tu Verras, Chansons Nettes, Ami Chemin, Bleu Blanc Blues, Le Cinema, Il Y Avait Une Ville, Olympia 1969, Olympia 1977, Olympia 1985, Best De Scene, and Hombre Et Lumiere.

And if you're thinking that the tracks are by Wolverine, Firestorm, and other 70s comic book creations, that's not the case – as the superheroes here are funky ones! More specifically, the tracks are great little groovers from the funky 45 underground – the kind of groups that really bubbled under in the charts at the time, many of whom never cut a full LP, but who released some monstrously great singles that made more than a bit of impact at the time. The set's got 20 tracks in all – all hard and funky – with titles that include "Super Soul Brother" by Timmie Rodgers, "Stand Up (part 1)" by Maskman & The Agents, "Spanky's Day Off" by Swingin Soul Machine, "It's The Real Thing (part 1)" by Electric Express, "Get It" by Wilmer & The Dukes, "Feelin Funky" by Brother Soul, "Cramp Your Style" by All the People, "Can't Get Satisfied" by Brother Jack McDuff, "Dynomite" by Tony Camillo's Bazuka, and "Foxy Lady" by Don Thompson.

A sweet package of dub – four classic albums in one cool little box – each with their original cover art, in tiny LP-styled sleeves!

Next is the classic King Tubby Meets The Upsetter At The Grass Roots Of Dub – the set supposedly features one side recorded by King Tubby, the other by Lee Perry at Black Art – but the record has a really unified feel, thanks to more Winston Edwards production! More wild dub breaks through on King Tubby Surrounded By The Dreads At The National Arena – not really a live record, but some amazing studio extrapolations of cuts that Tubby let loose at a famous concert with The Wailers – reworked beautifully in the studio with some really incredible sounds! Last up is the great Dub Conference classic – a blazing early dub outing from producer Winston Edwards – featuring Blackbeard taking the Wellpack Band into a deep dubby corner of outer space! A wonderful package all the way through – filled with records we almost never see on wax. CD

Mackrosoft, 2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The first record from Cheeba in many years – and definitely his funkiest so far! The production of this one is right on the money – filled with sharp, funky, 70s-styled riffs – very much in the best blacksploitation style from back in the day! Years back, we'd always like Cheeba's records, but sometimes found them rough around the edges – yet this time around, he's totally got it right – perfect production, just the right amount of space in between the grooves, and key help from some younger session players who really make the whole thing come out right – like a recreation of some hip 70s studio band. Titles include "Paisley Garden", "Looing For My Brother", "Message Force Multipliers", "Extend The Knowledge", "The Denunciation", "Return From Exile", and "2nd & Cedar". CD
