New Thievery CorporationRichest Man In Babylon ... LP
ESL, 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
The deepest album to date from Thievery Corporation – one that has them really expanding their palette, going beyond retro groovers into a set of future soundscapes, soulful vocal numbers, and beyond! Nearly every track on the set features a vocalist, and the album slides together nicely with a seamless flow that shows the duo stepping up their talents in the studio nicely. Titles include "Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes", "The Richest Man In Babylon", "The State Of The Union", "Resolution", "Until The Morning", "From Creation", "Liberation Front", and "Meu Destino".

New Thievery CorporationSaudade ... LP
ESL, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite record ever from Thievery Corporation – and one that really stays true to the sound of all the styles that have inspired them! For over a decade, the duo have been playing with elements borrowed from bossa nova, old soundtracks, French pop, and lounge – but this is the first time they really take the trouble to respectfully re-present the music of their roots – with all the right modes of instrumentation and production to stand head to toe with previous legends! The feel of the record is a lot more like a Schema session than most other ESL recordings – and even more like a 60s record, too – thanks to warm acoustic instrumentation on guitar, percussion, and strings – mixed with bossa percussion, gentle keyboards, and some really great vocals from a range of different female singers. Titles include "Para Sempre", "Bateau Rouge", "Saudade", "Claridad", "Nos Dois", "Le Coeur", "Firelight", and "Decollage". LP, Vinyl record album

Thievery CorporationRadio Retaliation ... LP
ESL, 2008. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Around November 18, 2014
No radio retaliation here, as Thievery Corporation are miles from the airwaves – working in their own unique blend of a globe's worth of grooves! The sound here is every bit as lush and full as before – a mix of classic funky elements, exotic instrumentation, and a few contemporary touches – focused strongly into the ESL groove that's become the trademark Thievery sound over the past decade or so. The pair seem to have even more guest help here than ever before – a rich lineup that includes Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Anuoushka Shankhar, Chuck Brown, and Sleepy Wonder – all of whom definitely make their presence felt. Titles include "Sound The Alarm", "Mandala", "Radio Retaliation", "Vampires", "La Femme Parallel", "Hare Krishna", and "Blasting Through The City". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownLove Power Peace – Live At The Olympia Paris 1971 (3LP set) ... LP
Polydor/Sundazed, 1971. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $47.99 49.99
A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin". Note – this is the first presentation of the material exactly the way that James Brown intended – as a 3LP set, without the remixing from the previous CD – pulled right from the original reels!

New Bootsy CollinsUltra Wave ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Bootsy's tightening things up a bit from before, but still sounding plenty darn great – that classic Collins groove in all its P-Funk glory! All the best elements are certainly in place – production by George Clinton and Bootsy, horn arrangements by Fred Wesley, and the slinky soulful sound that made Bootsy's albums some of the most enduring of the P-Funk posse. The album shows a bit of the transformation in soul bass playing that Bootsy helped to foster during the late 70s – but it's still not as "whompin" as some of the many groups that were springing up in his wake – a good thing, to us, because so many of Bootsy's imitators had a way of playing their bass way too much! Titles include "Mug Push", "Is That My Song", "It's A Musical", "Sound Crack", and "Fat Cat". LP, Vinyl record album

CrackinMakings Of A Dream ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Even better than the first Warner album from Crackin – a sweet little cooker with loads of subtle charm! The group have a really great feel – tight, but never commercial – and never too AOR, as well – a careful balance that's probably one of the reasons why they never charted as big back in the day – although, from our crate-digging experience, we can say that we always seem to turn up their albums in all the hippest collections from the 70s! Leslie Smith sings vocals with the group, adding in the same soulful currents you'll know from his later solo work – and the overall feel is somewhere in the same sort of jazzy funk sound that you'd find on the best records by Rufus from the time. Titles include "I Want To Sing It To You", "You're Winning", "There's A Better Way", "Take Me To The Bridge", "Feel Alright", "What Goes Around Comes Around", and "Beautiful Day".

JBsBreakin' Bread ... LP
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in some really tight song formats that almost go back to the early days of the group's first few singles. The album's filled with great playing, wonderful grooves, and Fred Wesley's keen sense of humor – which sparks the whole set with a sense of warmth and creative play that show why the JBs are still the greatest funk band ever. Includes the excellent "Little Boy Black", which begins with some tasty James Brown vocals; the oft-sampled "Rockin' Funky Watergate"; plus "Step Child", "Makin Love", and "Rice & Ribs". Not as drawn out as Doing It To Death, but more complicated than Food For Thought, and still a totally essential bit of funk! LP, Vinyl record album

New JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all the thousands of groups in the funky 45 underground who were always trying to copy their sound, but never got things this right! Not only are the rhythms the stuff of legend – but the use of the instruments is far far above the norm – as can be heard on the mindblowing "The Grunt", which was sampled heavily by Public Enemy to great fame – and which features a saxophone solo that sounds more like a whistling tea kettle! The set collects some of the group's best early singles, and includes all of the short little funky cuts that made them a legend right out of the box – "Pass the Peas", "The Grunt", "These Are The JBs", "Hot Pants Road", "Wine Spot", "To My Brother", "Blessed Blackness", "Theme From King Heroin", "Escapism (parts 1 & 2), and "Gimme Some More" – all together here in one tight little album of massive funky hard beats and breaks!

New SOS BandSOS ... LP
Tabu, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The seminal first album from the SOS Band – a record that really showcases the new sound of soul for the 80s, yet still holds onto all the best elements of the previous decade too! These guys have a great ear for groovers – well-demonstrated by the play they got on the dancefloor – yet they've also got a deeper sense of soul than some of their club contemporaries as well – heard not just on the ensemble vocals for the upbeat tracks, but especially on some of the album's great mellow steppers too! It's these laidback cuts that have always kept the album strong for us – showing that SOS are way more than just another fast funk band, and can really go deep, and stay with it for the long haul. Fred Wesley helped a bit on the arrangements – and titles include "Take Your Time", "Love Won't Wait For Love", "SOS (Dit Dit Dit Dash Dash Dash Dit Dit Dit)", "Take Love Where You Find It", and "Open Letter".

A tasty bit of late P-Funk! The album was recorded in 1980, on the wane of the main P-Funk groups – and it features Bootsy and Fred Wesley teaming up on the arrangements, in a set of bass-heavy, mostly instrumental tracks that groove hard like the best early work by Zapp! There's a great jazzy groove to the record – with loads of tasty keyboards, and less of the slapp bass funk that could sometimes ruin other efforts like this. Titles include "Love Munch", "Hyper Space", "Freak to Freak", "Body Shop", and "We Do It All Day Long". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Charles (aka Charles Sherell)For Sweet People From Sweet Charles ... LP
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A supremely fantastic album, and one that's always woefully overlooked in discussions of James Brown's incredible People label! Sweet Charles, Charles Sherell, was a great lost soul vocalist who had a voice that was warm and mellow, with a sweetness that was often missing from James' singing – but which sounded great with his arrangements and production. Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews arranged this one and only album, and the record's a great blend of sweet soul tracks, funky numbers, and other stellar grooves. There's a killer version of "Soul Man", that begins with a very tasty break; the monster "Yes, It's You", which has a sweetly sliding intro that's ripe for sampling; the righteous political "Why Can't I Be Treated Like A Man"'; and lots of other nice ones too!

VariousC'Est Chic! – French Girl Singers Of The 60s ... LP
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Fantastic French femmes from the 60s – and a great illustration of the way that girl power really took over the sound of the Parisian scene at the time! These tunes have a punch that few American or British tracks of the period could ever hope to match – a way of staying sweet, yet really hitting hard with a groove – sometimes with fuzzy guitars or organ, sometimes with a fuller blast of orchestrations – always completely charming and immediately appealing – even if you can't understand the lyrics! Most numbers feature work by some top-shelf arrangers from the tight Parisian scene – including Alain Goraguer, Jacques Denjean, Michel Colombier, and Ivan Julien – and titles include "Le Coeur Au Bout Des Doights" by Jacqueline Taieb, "Laisser Tomber Les Filles" by France Gall, "Voila" by Francois Hardy, "Il Suffit D'Un Jour" by Liz Brady, "L'Adorable Femme Des Neiges" by Christie Laume, "Impatiente" by Les Gams, and "Les Filles C'Est Fait Pour Faire L'Amore" by Charlotte Leslie.

New Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers Dawn Silva, Sheila Horn, and Jeanette McGruder working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love".

Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from cosmic soul jazz to leftfield hip hop!

The pleasure principle is in full effect here – a really special sort of feeling that strongly shows off the female side of the Parliament/Funkadelic mothership! The album's got a groove that's way different than most female disco of the time – more offbeat and angular, thanks to funky backings from George Clinton and crew – with arrangements from Bernie Worell and Fred Wesley that have lots of great twists and turns! In a way, the mix of funk and club almost echoes the vibe of work on the P&P labels – but with a bit more punch and polish too, thanks to Clinton's great production. The whole thing's great – way more than just another female disco album – and titles include "Mr Melody Man", "Cookie Jar", "Love Amnesia", "Misunderstanding", "Are You Dreaming", and "Pleasure Principle".

New James BrownReality ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the last great albums from James Brown! Not as totally sublime as Payback or some of the others from the 70s – but James is still working here with Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews – and many of the cuts retain the funk of a few years past. Case in point is the sublime "Funky President" – a super-dope track that mixes politics and funk, and which is one of our favorite James Brown tracks from the 70s. Other cuts include "All For One", "Check Your Body", "Reality", and "Further Up The Road". LP, Vinyl record album

New ChameleonChameleon ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A funky soul group produced by Fred Wesley and Azar Lawrence, with a sound that's got a bit of the Horny Horns feel to it. Lawrence sings and plays saxes on the album, in a way that's very different than on his mid-70s Fantasy recordings – with a mix of late P-Funk and early 80s bass-heavy grooves, but still with some slight touches of fusion to give the set a bit more soul. Titles include "Unfair Affair", "Mysteryoso", "Game Of Life", "Come Into My Life", "For You", and "Get Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo.)

New Bootsy CollinsBootsy? Player Of The Year ... LP
Warner, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
What can we say? Bootsy's on top of the world here – not only The Player Of The Year, but also the most soulful artist in the P-Funk stable, and a master of the smooth, sly, slinky groove that would forever be taken up by bands from LA – both in the immediate soul years and in later sampling hip hop ones. The record's got a sophisticated soul approach that moves the music way past slapped basslines and funny glasses – and thanks to top-line musicianship, including some help from Fred Wesley, Bootsy avoids any cliches that might have buried this one under the mountain of P-Funk albums hitting the market at the same time. Includes the monster track "Hollywood Squares" – plus "May The Force Be With You", "Very Yes", "Bootsy?", and "Bootzilla". LP, Vinyl record album
(With die-cut glasses intact. Cover has a cut corner & some light wear.)

New Don Gardner QuintetRhythm & Blues Dance Party ... LP
Fonet (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A blazing live set from The Don Gardner Quintet – recorded live a Stockholm's Dans In in August of 1965 – and a pretty great mix of drums and organ-heavy jazz and the Rhythm & Blues Dance Party promised by the titles! The group is fantastic – with Gardner holding down on the drums and Dee Dee Ford really standout out strongly on organ – and the two also contribute some vocals. Other players include Bill Leslie and Jimmy Ricks on saxes and Nat Stokes on guitar. Guest singer Beverly Glenn contributes some great, almost show-stealing soul vocals on "Shotgun" and "Heatwave", and other numbers include "Walkin'", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Watermelon Man", "Shiny Stockings", "Julep". "I Don't Need You Anymore" and "Last Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

New JBsBreakin' Bread ... LP
People, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in some really tight song formats that almost go back to the early days of the group's first few singles. The album's filled with great playing, wonderful grooves, and Fred Wesley's keen sense of humor – which sparks the whole set with a sense of warmth and creative play that show why the JBs are still the greatest funk band ever. Includes the excellent "Little Boy Black", which begins with some tasty James Brown vocals; the oft-sampled "Rockin' Funky Watergate"; plus "Step Child", "Makin Love", and "Rice & Ribs". Not as drawn out as Doing It To Death, but more complicated than Food For Thought, and still a totally essential bit of funk! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear.)

New Jacques LoussierTu Seras Terriblement Gentille (aka You Only Love Once) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Decca (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer set of grooves – and one of our favorite-ever soundtracks! The album's an incredible blend of swirling strings and mod French rhythms – a perfect 60s backdrop for the film, and a record that's unlike anything else we can think of! Some tunes have a really groovy jerk-style rhythms, but others have a more sweeping style that's equally great – and together, the tunes make for a perfect blend of music, one that makes the album an all-killer, no-filler record! Titles include the massive "Clara's Jerk" – which has some Pierre Henry-like electronics, and a very cool groove – plus "Leslie's Jerk", "Sortie Metro", "Generique", "Top Cover Girl", "Ballade Dans Paris", "Baiser", "Kam-Tcha-Tka", and "Ballet Photo Rouge".

New George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

New VariousWizzz – Psychorama Francais 1966 to 1971 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Grooviness abounds! This set's a wonderful batch of obscure French pop tunes – all with a hard Go-Go groove, the kind of fab late 60s sound that you'll rarely find documented well in the world of reissues. The album's one of our favorite collections of groovy French tunes – and it's got an excellent blend of slightly funky styles that feature lots of work on fuzzed-out guitars, organ, and heavy bass – the sorts of ultra-hip sounds you might always dig for on French records, yet never find together in one place as great as this! Titles include "Cuisses Nues, Bottes De Cuir" by Philippe Nicaud, "Bernadette" by L'Oeil, "A Degager" by Les Fleurs De Pavot, "Rouge Rouge" by Christie Laume, "Les Filles C'Est Fait" by Charlotte Leslie, "Le Pape Du Pop" by Stephane Varegues, "Avec Les Oreilles" by Monique Thubert, and "Sexologie" by Danyel Gerard.
