FunkadelicFree Your Mind . . . And Your Ass Will Follow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99
An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's entirely true, but the music on the album certainly backs it up – as it's some of the band's freest, most open-ended, most heavy-jamming work ever recorded! Guitars dominate over funky bass and drums – and the whole thing's an amazing blend of music, swirled together into a non-stop psychedelic party that includes P-Funk gems like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Free Your Mind", "Eulogy and Light", and "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You".

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a perversion of the deep-Motown styles of groups like The Temptations or Undisputed Truth – taken into even headier territory! The original 5-member version of the group includes Eddie Hazel, Mickey Atkins, Tawl Ross, Bill Nelson, and Tiki Fulwood – all working here with some mindblowing George Clinton production! Tracks include classics like "I Bet You", "Mommy, What's a Funkadelic", "Music for My Mother", and "What Is Soul" – and the album's the stuff that made these guys a legend right out of the box!

FunkadelicLet's Take It To The Stage (remastered with bonus track) ... CD
Westbound, 1975. Used ... $7.99
A tasty little album from Funkadelic – one that has Bootsy Collins joining the group, and really hitting the unique approach that would become the definitive P-Funk groove! And although tracks are shorter and even more focused, there's still a fair bit of guitar in the set – keeping the trademark Funkadelic sound in place, to set them aside from from the growing horn-heavy Parliament groove. Yet in both groups' work at the time, there's a growing emphasis on the rhythms at the bottom – a pulling up of the basslines in a way that was no doubt influenced by Bootsy's presence, and which would have a key influence on the sound of funk for years to come! Includes the massively infectious funk track "Get Off Your Ass and Jam", plus "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Be My Beach", "Baby I Owe You Something Good", "The Song Is Familiar", "No Head No Backstage Pass", "Atmosphere", "Stuffs & Things", and "Better By the Pound". CD features the bonus track "Baby I Owe You Something Good" – performed by US Music with Funkadelic! CD

FunkadelicMaggot Brain (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark vision of the future! The centerpiece of the album is the mindblowing "Maggot Brain" title track – a tune that begins with a chilling spoken intro, then slowly builds amidst washes and washes of post-Hendrix guitar. That cut then rolls into some shorter, funkier numbers that rank with some of the group's best ever – using the device of party-hearty energy to convey a sense of alienation and horror at the world. The whole thing's brilliant throughout – and apart from being a soul classic, the set should also rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time! Titles include "Maggot Brain", "Super Stupid", "Back in Our Minds", "Can You Get to That", and "Wars of Armageddon". LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicOne Nation Under A Groove ... CD
Priority/Capitol, 1978. Used ... $6.99
An instant classic the day it was released – and a perfect blending of the group's older freaked-out style with a slick late 70s funk sound that started showing up in the work of many other groups. "One Nation Under A Groove" is a monster cut with a hook that won't quit, and the LP version runs way over 7 minutes long. Other tracks are equally great, and the whole thing's woven together with the same sort of skill as some of the best Parliament albums from the mid 70s. Tracks include "Into You", "Grooveallegiance", and "Cholly". Plus, this CD reissue also includes the bonus cuts from the original 45rpm ep that came with the album – including "Maggot Brain (live)" and "Doodoo Chasers". CD

FunkadelicStanding On The Verge Of Getting It On (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to tighten up their sound from the more rock-based years, and moving into a catchier funk groove that would put them over the top for many records to come! The title cut "Standing On The Verge" is one of the most anthemic funk tracks you'll ever find – with a chorus and groove that will stay in your head for years after you first hear the song – and there's lots of other tasty tracks like that on the set, really honing the Funkadelic approach down into an incredibly powerful sound! Titles include "I'll Stay", "Standing On The Verge", "Good Thoughts Bad Thoughts", "Red Hot Mama", "Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch In Him", and "Sexy Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

New FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers".

You'll find a few familiar tracks here, but also a number of cuts that don't always show up as often – like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Philmore", "Sexy Ways", "No Compute", and "I'll Bet You", a nice sample track from way back!

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use!

New FunkadelicTales Of Kidd Funkadelic ... LP
Westbound, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An oft-overlooked gem by Funkadelic – the group's last album for Westbound, and a record that really has them growing into a great new groove! Bootsy and Eddie Hazel have stepped aside for the set, but that gives Bernie Worrell plenty of room to work his magic on keyboards – in a way that really increases the spacier elements of the set, and almost trades a messed-up moogy sort of feel for the heady guitars of earlier years – a slippery kind of Funky Worm groove that we totally love! The set is self-described as "delightfully putrid" on the Pedro Bell cover – and we couldn't agree more! Titles include "Undisco Kidd", "Let's Take It To The People", "How Do Yeaw View You", "Butt-to-Butt Resuscitation" and "Take Your Dead Ass Home!". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousBest Of Invictus/Hotwax Vol 2 – Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Freaky fuzzy soul from the mighty Invictus/Hot Wax records – home to early work by Parliament and a whole host of other great Detroit soul groups too! The grooves here really go past the ordinary – and show the label's love of a heavy bassline or fuzz-drenched guitar – elements borrowed from other parts of the Motor City scene, then reworked into some headier grooves for the 70s by the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Lots of the tunes share the same sort of heavy sound and righteous energy you'd find in late Motown work by Norman Whitfield – and titles include "Gimme Shelter" by Ruth Copeland, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic" by The Politicians, "I Call My Baby Pussycat" by Parliament, "You've Been My Rock" by Warlock, "Everybody's Tippin" by Danny Woods, "Somebody's Been Sleeping" by 100 Proof, and "I Surrendered" by Glass House.

New ADC BandRoll With The Punches ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Massive funk from the ADC Band – some lesser-known cats from the early 80s scene on Atlantic Records – but a group with a sense of soul and power that knocks over most of their contemporaries! For those who've ever doubted the influence of P-Funk on the rest of soul music, you only need look at a band like ADC – who've firmly adopted the slap-bass groove style of music, and perhaps polished it up a bit from the Parliament/Funkadelic sound of the late 70s. As with the P-Funk crew, too – ADC here sing on a number of familiar topics, as you'd guess from titles like "U Funk Ula", "Funk On Fire", "Roll With The Punches", "Girls", and "Give It Up". Fortunately, they do a pretty darn good job of it – and the record has a sound that's a lot more soulful than you'd expect, underpinned by a strong 80s groove. CD

Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". CD

Catfish HodgeDifferent Strokes – The Complete Eastbound & Westbound Recordings (Boogie Man Gonna Get Ya/Dinosaurs & Alleycats/Soap Operas) ... CD
Westbound/Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Three full albums from heavy rocker Bob "Catfish" Hodge – a great underground talent on the Detroit scene of the late 60s and early 70s – and one who recorded for the same Westbound label as Funkadelic! Hodge shares a lot with some of the best Detroit talents of the time – namely a real genre-crossing sound that's very color blind – one that mixes in equal parts blues, rock, and soul – and which sometimes hits some funkier edges too – no surprise, given the Westbound recording style at the time. The guitar is great – often fuzzy, but never too freaky – and nicely focused on the rhythms on most tunes, until it takes off in some sweetly expressive solos. Hodge's vocals have a nice degree of grit, and a quality that's a bit like Dr John – in which he's referencing older modes and styles, but manages to come off without any hoke at all. The 2CD set features all three albums recorded for the Westbound/Eastbound label – Soap Operas, Dinosaurs & Alleycats, and Boogie Man Gonna Get Ya – plus b-sides and a few unreleased tracks too. Titles include "Train To Detroit", "Boogie Man", "Different Strokes", "Ghetto", "Hungry Love", "Big Boss Man", "Oscar Teo", "For Free", "Des Woman", "Sweet Cocaine", and "We Got Love In Our House".

Westbound, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Mindblowing funk from The Ohio Players – the group's debut album for Westbound Records, and a landmark batch of tracks that never gets old! The sound here really has the group stretching out a lot – working on tunes that are extended, but never as overindulgent as their labelmates Funkadelic – always keeping to a groove that's focused, yet also free to explore its bad self in the new freedoms of the 70s. There's a strong undercurrent of funky jazz running through the set – mixing great riffing alongside the tight rhythms and tripped-out vocals – all brought together with that deep deep deep production sound that Westbound gave the world as its own legacy in the wake of Norman Whitfield's experiments at motown. Titles include the wonderfully jamming "Players Balling", and the funky numbers "Reds" and "Singing In The Morning" – plus more soulful tracks "I Wanna Hear From You" and "Never Had A Dream".

There's a funky energy at the core that really sets Parlet apart from other female disco trios – wonderful arrangements that are filled with all the tight instrumentation and complicated approaches to rhythm that Clinton served up with Parliament and Funkadelic – played here by most of the players from those great groups too! The P-Funk drive really makes for some great music throughout – and the trio of Jeanette Washington, Shirley Hayden, and Janice Evans serve up the lyrics with plenty of bounce. Tracks are long, with an instantly compelling dancefloor groove – and titles include "Ridin High", "No Rump To Bump", "Booty Snatchers", and "Don't Ever Stop". CD

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!

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".

Casablanca, 1975. Very Good- ... $7.99
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized – but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting and counterbalancing in a similar style to that heard on some of Roy Ayers' best work from the early 70s. Clinton's begun introducing a lot of elements of Funkadelic into the group – but the tracks are still short and very tight, with a focussed approach to both funk and lyrics that really makes the album stand up to repeated listenings over the years. The album begins with the sublime "Chocolate City", a surprisingly political number that has these incredible jagged piano lines that echo away madly – then it rolls into other great numbers like "Side Effects", "What Comes Funky", "If It Don't Fit, Don't Force It", and "I Misjudged You".

An overlooked later gem from Parliament – a set that's very tight and funky, and which really picks up the groove first laid down on "Flashlight"! There's a tightly snapping approach here that rivals the best late 70s work by Funkadelic – the later P-Funk mode that's even more focused on rhythms than before, and which gets away from the sloppy stuff to really hit home with the groove! Tunes are steeped in horny horns, wah wah guitar, and lots of electric keyboards – and titles include "The Big Bang Theory", which is virtually a blueprint for the LA G-funk sound of the 80s – plus the tracks "The Freeze", "May We Bang You?", "Party People", and "(GloryHallaStoopid) Pin The Tail On The Funky".

Mavis StaplesOne True Vine ... CD
Anti, 2013. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
Mavis Staples makes a big nod here to the indie underground that have really helped support her recent comeback – working with production from Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, who also contributed new songs to the record – alongside Alan Sparhawk of Low, and the legendary Nick Lowe too! The setting is nicely understated at times – in a mode that's gentler, and not nearly as forceful as some of Staples other comeback recordings – a change that we really appreciate a lot, as Tweedy seems to find a folksy element in Mavis' singing that hasn't been captured this well in years. Titles include a remake of the Funkadelic classic "Can You Get To That" – plus "Holy Ghost", "Sow Good Seeds", "What Are They Doing In Heaven These Days", "One True Vine", and "Far Celestial Shore".

Fred WesleyHit Me Fred – Recollections Of A Sideman (paperback) ... Book
Duke University Press, 2002. New Copy ... $18.99 24.95
The life story of the amazing Fred Wesley – the funky, soulful trombone hero for the JBs, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, and so many other geniuses and trailblazers – laid out by the master himself, and his gift as a great storyteller rivals even that of his musicianship! We already know that Wesley is in many ways the backbone for the legacy of 70s funk and soul – but it was bebop that defined him in his young years, with Fred masterfully adapting himself into the roles offered to him and eventually cementing his reputation as the heart and soul of funky horns. He provided the tight, propulsive force behind James Brown's grit and fire in the King's best years, the cosmic blowing of Parliament Funkadelic, the hard-snapping background of Boosty's Rubber Band, plus stints with the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, Count Basie, Hank Ballard, Maceo Parker, and some hard touring with his own bands. Wesley is nothing if not humble about his history, which to us is nothing short of amazing – but as he tells it, he was just a man doing a job. He's a musical journeyman, who satisfied his obligations to the best of his abilities – abilities that are impossible to even imagine one of our greatest chapters of purely soulful musical culture without. Hit Me, Fred is crammed with as much life as you could possibly expect in about 300 pages, with some nice black & white photos, Wesley's staggering discography, and a forward by funk historian Rickey Vincent.

VariousSuper Breaks 3 – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... LP
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
More funky breaks than Evel Knevel after the Snake River Canyon jump! The groove hounds at BGP records were set loose on the Ace catalog – which includes holdings from Atlantic, Stax, Volt, Westbound, and other funky classic labels – and they managed to come up with a killer batch of funky cuts, even though this is their 3rd dip into the crates! If anything, perhaps they dipped even deeper this time – especially as some of the once-trusted sources for breaks, like the famous Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, are now disappearing from the market. Titles include "Soul Pad" by The Coasters, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by The Mad Lads, "The Rose" by 50 Foot Hose, "Holy Ghost" by The Bar Kays, "No Strings Attached" by The Mad Lads, "After Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, "River's Invitation" by Freddie Robinson, "This House Is Smokin" by BT Express, "Music Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Pleasure Web, and "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter.

New George ClintonSome Of My Best Jokes Are Friends ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
While little of Clinton's work under his own name in the 80s compares favorably with the best of the Parliament-Funkadelic years, it's still fairly solid compared to a lot of the other commercial R&B dreck that was being peddled at the time. With the sort of fat bass, loads of synthesized keyboards and brittle drum machine sounds that were stock in trade during that era, but an undeniable groove running throughout most of the tunes, like "Double Oh Oh", "Bulletproof", "Bodyguard" and "Some Of My Best Jokes Are Friends".

New ADC BandLong Stroke ... CD
Cotillion/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
ADC Band take a long stroke on the funky bass – borrowing all the best P-Funk elements from their Detroit counterparts – but also helping the music find a tighter, more focused groove too! ADC were a key part of that post-Parliament/Funkadelic generation who used George Clinton's best influences to find a new way of coming together – an approach to ensemble funk that may have taken it self more seriously than the P-Funk universe (especially in their earlier days) – but which also helped find a way to keep things going a lot longer at a time when George Clinton himself was flagging. The band are way sharper than the usual mainstream funk group of the time – and have that gritty, hard-working sound you'd expect from their image on the cover – and some soaring female vocals really help give their best songs a unique vibe. Titles include the Parliament tribute cut "Long Stroke" – plus "Fire Up", "Cause I Love You", "Baby Love", and "Just Another Song". CD

New Robert BainesLet's Start/Pirana ... 7-inch
Funk 45 (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fuzzy smoker from Robert Baines – a great little funk track, but one with a nicely trippy feel – a groove that's a bit like early Funkadelic on Westbound, but a bit grittier too! "Pirana" has a nice bite too – some massive drums at the start, topped with these sweet organ lines – then giving way to a wicked guitar that sends the tune home with a nice long solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... LP
Warner, 1977. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and some stains, with a partially stuck gatefold and some peeling on the inside.)

New MonophonicsIn Your Brain ... LP
Ubiquity, 2012. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Monophonics definitely have a way of getting inside your brain – using a cosmic slop of fuzzy guitars and funky basslines to eat away your grey matter more than a maggot inside your cranium! Yet even past that heavy Funkadelic reference, they've also got a richer vibe too – elements of 60s psych mixed in with their funk – particularly in the way that the younger generation's been re-digging crates from the early 70s these days – especially some of the more farther-flung tracks from the global underground. There's slight Afro elements at times, garagey bits at others, and even some well-timed rhythms that help the whole thing have a good sense of focus – and save it from the overindulgence that toppled the hippie generation before they even got started. Titles include "Mirage", "Bang Bang", "Temptation", "In Your Brain", "Sure Is Funky", "There's A Riot Going On", "Say You Love Me", "They Don't Understand", and "Thinking Black".

New Black MerdaFolks From Mother's Mixer ... CD
Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy duty fuzzy soul from Black Merda (aka Mer-Da) – the massive Black Merda and Long Burn The Fire LPs back-to-back on one CD! The Black Merda album has a distinct batch of influences that run from Funkadelic, to Hendrix, to Chicago electric blues – but since the recording (from 1970) was contemporaneous with most of those influences, we should give the group more credit than just listing others with a similar sound! Includes the great stoned track "Cynthy-Ruth", plus "Prophet", "Reality", "I Don't Want To Die", and "Over & Over". Long Burn The Fire is another great batch Hendrix-inspired funky rock, released under the moniker Mer-Da! The sound is definitely rock-heavy – with lots of trippy guitars riffing away in heavy fuzzy style – but the album's also a classic in the black rock vein, and there's enough funk in the mix to keep it on your turntable if you dig the rockier sound of the funky grooves! Cuts include "The Folks From Mother's Mixer", "Lying", "We Made Up", and "Long Burn The Fire". 19 tracks in all! CD

New QuazarQuazar ... LP
Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Tight funky soul from Quazar! This relatively overlooked group is one of the lesse-remembered P-Funk-linked acts of the late 70s – which is a shame, as it's a great little side project from the team of Glenn Goins and Jerome Brailey – and one with a bass and drums-heavy party groove! The style here is almost even tighter than that of Parliament or Funkadelic at the time – with tunes that are shorter and more focused, and which almost seem to point the way towards the changes that mainstream funk would take later into the 80s. Most of the tunes are stormers – with the bass out front and killer group chanted backing vocals! Titles include "Funk With A Big Foot", "Funk With A Capital G", "Funk N Roll", "Your Lovin Is Easy", "Shades of Quaze", "Workin' On The Buildin'" and "Love Me Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

New General CaineGirls (with bonus track) ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
General Caine's got plenty of girls on the cover, and plenty of funk in his groove – that bass-heavy style that made Caine one of the better mainstream funk acts of the time! The General is actually Mitch McDowell – who'd worked previously with James Brown and George Clinton, and definitely brings plenty of the latter's P-Funk style to play here – a tight groove that's got lots of "umph" at the bottom – in that wonderful way both Parliament and Funkadelic hit at the end of the 70s. Fred Wesley handles the horn charts – bringing some Funky Horns touches to the mix – and titles include "Knock Down The Walls", "Girls", "Don't Stop", "Wait At The Mountain", and "It's Getting Deep". CD features a great book-like package, new notes, and a bonus track – "Baseball (7" edit)". CD

New Mavis StaplesOne True Vine (with bonus CD) ... LP
Anti, 2013. New Copy LP + CD ... Out Of Stock
Mavis Staples makes a big nod here to the indie underground that have really helped support her recent comeback – working with production from Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, who also contributed new songs to the record – alongside Alan Sparhawk of Low, and the legendary Nick Lowe too! The setting is nicely understated at times – in a mode that's gentler, and not nearly as forceful as some of Staples other comeback recordings – a change that we really appreciate a lot, as Tweedy seems to find a folksy element in Mavis' singing that hasn't been captured this well in years. Titles include a remake of the Funkadelic classic "Can You Get To That" – plus "Holy Ghost", "Sow Good Seeds", "What Are They Doing In Heaven These Days", "One True Vine", and "Far Celestial Shore". LP, Vinyl record album

Bootsy's Rubber BandThis Boot Is Made For Fonk-N ... LP
Warner, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Bootsy's still keeping the P-Funk flag flying high at the end of the 70s – arguably stepping out here with a sound that's got more of the Parliafunkadelicment elements intact than some of George Clinton's other spinoff groups! The tracks are long, and plenty jamming – still with plenty of star power from Bootsy upfront – but also some wonderfully tight rhythms from the rest of the players too, all in that mix of hard-rolling, and light-tripping funk modes that still set the P-Funk groups apart from the pack of imitators who'd cropped up in their wake! Titles include "Jam Fan (Hot)", "Bootsy Get Live", "Under The Influence Of A Groove", "Chug-A-Lug", "Oh Boy", and "Shejam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the inner sleeve.)
