Les Baxter & 101 StringsQue Mango ... CD
Scamp, 1970. Used ... $2.99
A later album, but one that still features Les doing some great Latiny bits – heading up the 101 Strings ensemble, for a sweeping and groovy kind of sound! The whole album's very similar to some of Les' Capitol work from the early 60s, but has a slightly more modern twist – including the use of electric bass underneath the arrangements, which creates a really nice gently loping groove! One of Les' best – despite the late date – and with tracks that include "Jungle Montuno", "Que Mango", "Bocha Chica", "Affair In Aruba", and "Tropicando". Very groovy, baby! CD

New VariousMusic For Dancefloors – KPM Music Library ... CD
KPM/Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sound library and a dancefloor? Sounds like an unlikely combination – but it results in a killer collection that's still one of the greatest sets of sound library funk we've ever heard! This massive batch of music is a great illustration of the special sound of the KPM library – a really unique outlet for British musicians in the 60s and 70s to craft records that were even more amazing than their studio sides – vintage jazz, soul, and electronic grooves – served up by a lineup that represents the cream of the crop of the UK scene of the time – plus a few surprising outside contributions as well! Titles include "That's What Friends Are For" by Alan Parker & Madeline Bell, "Second Cut" by James Clarke, "Swamp Fever" by John Cameron, "Incidental Backcloth No 3" by Keith Mansfield, "Cross Talk" by Francis Coppieters, "Jungle Baby" by Juan Erlando & His Latin Band, "Freeway To Rio" by Les Baxter, "In Advance" by Pierre Lavin, "Senior Thump" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Expo In Tokyo" by Alan Moorehouse, "Funky Express" by Duncan Lamont, "Morning 1/Morning 2" by Klaus Weiss, "Assault Course" by Johnny Pearson, and "Samba Street" by Barry Morgan. The package is a great reworking of the original KPM collection from Strut – and not only features the original funky set, but also features a bonus CD that includes a rare live performance by the KPM All-Stars in 2000 – a wicked reunion with work by James Clarke, Duncan Lamont, Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, and other giants from the heyday of KPM.

VariousChoice : A Collection Of Classics – Jeff Mills ... CD
Azuli (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
A surprisingly wonderful batch of club classics from Jeff Mills – hand-picked for the excellent Choice series, and featuring a lot of late 70s/early 80s numbers we'd nearly forgotten about! Jeff's got a great ear for the sorts of tunes that have a nice electric undercurrent – using bass and percussion to spark up the groove a bit, yet still keeping things soulful and funky overall. This massive 2CD set features a total of 25 numbers, segued nicely back to back – with titles that include "Sexuality" by Blake Baxter, "Dance To The Beat" by Starflight, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "The More I Get The More I Want" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Esto Parese Amor (club)" by Montana with Goody Goody, "The End" by Change, "I'll Do Anything For You" by Denroy Morgan, "Show You My Love" by Goldie Alexander, "Ai No Corrida" by Chaz Jankel, "Space Bass" by Slick, "On The Clup Tip" by King Sun, "Can't Fake The Feeling" by Geraldine Hunt, "Moskow Diskow" by Telex, "Give Me Back Your Love" by Boys In Shock featuring Carol Leeming, and "Keep It In The Family" by Deodato.
