New Thievery CorporationSaudade ... LP
ESL, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
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 Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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".

New James BrownReality ... LP
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

James BrownSex Machine Today ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
A great little album by The Godfather – one that takes the core James Brown sound of the "Sex Machine" generation, and serves it up with a tighter mid 70s twist! Fred Wesley is still very firmly at the helm of the band – and there's a power here that's equal to the later JBs work on the Breakin Bread album. The grooves are nicely free of the "fast funk" syndrome that crept into James' work a few years later as his answer to disco – and are super tight all the way through! The LP includes a 12 minute remake of "Sex Machine" that's worth the price alone – plus the funk cuts "Dead On It", "Problems", and "Deep In It". Nice stuff – and plenty of funkiness to go around!

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".

New Freedom Sounds featuring Wayne HendersonPeople Get Ready ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $8.99
A great batch of sunny soul jazz numbers – recorded by Wayne Henderson at a time when he was scoring big with the Jazz Crusaders! This combo's very much in the vein of Wayne's work with that more famous group – but they've got a bit of a tighter approach, playing more in a "soul instrumental" mode that mixes jazz soloing with complicated percussion and bits of Latin rhythms. Henderson plays this cool orange trombone on the record (pictured on the cover!), in a mode that recalls some of Fred Wesley's more jazz-based work – and titles include "Things Go Better", "Respect", "Cucamonga", "Orbital Velocity", and "Cathy The Cooker".

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

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!

Jammin! For heavy guitars and high-stepping vocals, Mountain couldn't be beat – and this early album was one of the group's best!

ParletPleasure Principle ... LP
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good ... $7.99
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 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!

James BrownLove Power Peace – Live At The Olympia Paris 1971 (3LP set) ... LP
Polydor/Sundazed, 1971. New Copy ... Mid-October, 2014
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 VariousC'Est Chic! – French Girl Singers Of The 60s ... LP
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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.

ECM, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of several solo David Byrne albums from around the time the Talking Heads were getting ready to call it quits. This set differs a bit more than the Catherine Wheel even though both are music for theater/dance/performance pieces, with this suite of music being inspired by New Orleans brass bands, though you might not otherwise make that connection if it weren't explicitly laid out in the notes. The group is a large one, primarily made up of horns, but with Paul Humphrey and Bobbye Hall on drums and percussion, and feature some real ringers in the brass section, including Don Myrick, Ernie Watts, Pete Christlieb and Fred Wesley. Tracks include "Tree", "In The Upper Room", "Sound Of Business", "Admiral Perry", "I Bid You Goodnight", "In The Future", "Where The Sun Never Goes Down", "Theadora Is Dozing", "Social Studies", "Winter", and "The Jungle Book".

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

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".

Trussel may have cut this one and only album at the end of the 70s – but they've got a strength that's kept them going for years – despite a lack of success at the time! The record's a sweet modern soul stunner – a record that picks up a sweet jazzy groove that's augmented with lots of great funky touches from Fred Wesley – all in ways that are a real precursor to the 80s groove generation! The album's not really disco, but more in the clubby funk territory of The Horny Horns – a mode that's got the ensemble coming down tight on the groove, and layering the sharp instrumentation with catchy vocal refrains that give the whole album a really infectious vibe. Titles include the classic "Gone For The Weekend" – plus "Love Injection", "Sweet Love", "I Love It", "Big City Rocker", and "If You Can't See It". LP, Vinyl record album

The group includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Thornel Schwartz on guitar, Ben Tucker on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and the tracks have an easy going groove that's right up there with the best soul jazz of the time on Prestige, and which actually even steps past the usual Argo offering of this sort. The album features some great original "diggin the chicks" tracks like "Madge", "Margie", and "Rosetta" – plus a beautifully somber reading of Ornette's "Lonely Woman", which features Leslie on saxella!

New Idris MuhammadHouse Of The Rising Sun ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Idris Muhammad's working here in a style that's very different than his heavy-footed funky work on Prestige and Blue Note – and while it's easy to criticize him for not keeping the same old breakbeat funk style, it's also important to give him a lot of credit for pushing his vision way past the simple stock style of the earlier days! The record's a very nice set of complicated jazzy grooves – some a bit cheesy, but many very nice, and with the kind of sophisticated funk arrangements that were on the best Kudu records. No surprise that Dave Matthews is putting together most of the cuts, save for one excellent groove that's arranged by Tom Harrell. Players include Fred Wesley, Ronnie Cuber, Eric Gale, and Wilbur Bascomb – and titles include "Baia", "Sudan", "Hey Pocky A Way", "Theme For New York City", which is based on the same Chopin haunting tune as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B"!

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.
