New Ohio PlayersSummertime ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 60s/1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
Cool 22 track CD that brings together all of the obscure sides that the Ohio Players recorded before they moved onto bigger fame at Westbound. Some of this stuff has shown up on Capitol, and other tracks have shown up on obscure compilations on labels like Trip, from the early 70's. The groove is less messed-up funky than their 70's records, and has more of a southern soul groove to it. The guitars are very nice, and the group has a good harmony sound on some tracks that's very different than their later sound. Cuts include "Trespassin", "Cold, Cold World", "Bad Bargain", "A Little Soul Party", "Love Slips Through My Fingers", "I Gotta Get Away", My Neighbors", and the title track, a very cool long cover of "Summertime".

New Faze-ORiding High (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
SHE/Get On Down, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A spacey soul classic – with a sound that never gets old! Faze-O will be forever remembered for their massive cut "Riding High", the leadoff on this album – a stretched out slow funk jam that has amazing keyboards, floating guitars, and a super-dope groove that's stayed fresh from the moment it was first set to wax back in 1977! This album's the group's first, and best – and it's a really wonderful record that blends together funky fusion and heavy soul – filled with killer cuts arranged by the Ohio Players, and with lots of great keyboards by the group! Includes, of course, the massive cut "Riding High" – plus "Toe Jam" and "Funky Reputation"! CD

New Ohio Penitentiary 511 Jazz EnsembleHard Luck Soul ... CD
Aragorn/Jazzman (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful lost relic, and a monster batch of long jazzy grooves! The album was recorded in the great tradition of "musicans in prison" albums, like those by The Escorts in the early 70s, and it features an incredibly soulful band made up of jazz musicians in lockdown at the Ohio State Penitentiary during the mid 70s! We don't recognize any of the names on the album, but the players work with a hell of a lot of soul and spirit – on longer tracks that almost have the feel of 70s work by The Pharoahs or Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Way better than anything you'd usually get of this nature – and definitely light years beyond any school or army band recording – and much more like a 70s underground spiritual jazz set. All of the material was written and arranged by Logan Rollins, and the tracks have a large group feel, with long drawn out grooves, and plenty of room for nice nice solos – and titles include "Psych City", "Mantra Dance", "Counterry Bosa Davan", and "Java Man".

New Bar-KaysToo Hot To Stop ... CD
Mercury, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players at their best, there's still plenty of sharp edges and deeply funky moments on the record – and if anything, the shift has really given The Bar-Kays a way to evolve their sound past some of the heavier modes of the early days, without losing any of the appeal of their groove! Some cuts have some great keyboards – almost producing a spacey funk feel at points – and titles include "Too Hot To Stop (part 1)", "You're So Sexy", "Cozy", "Spellbound", "Whitehouseorgy", and the nice mellow track "Summer Of Our Love".

New T-ConnectionT-Connection (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dash/Big Break (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A soaring stormer from T-Connection – and a set that has them sounding even better than before! There's a perfection here the group didn't have with earlier releases – a quality that goes way past indie funk ensemble, into the realm of some of the best mainstream acts on the bigger labels at the time – company shared by a rare few, like Earth Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, or the Bar-Kays! Things are every bit as funky as before – but there's a way of putting the tunes together that really blows us away – fusing all the elements together perfectly, and making everything work towards the groove – yet all without making anything sound too slick or polished either. Mighty nice all the way through – and titles include "Funky Lady", "Don't Stop The Music", "Funkannection", "Saturday Night", "At Midnight", and "Love Supreme". CD features great bonus tracks – "At Midnight (12" single version), "Saturday Night (12" single version)", "At Midnight (single version)", and "Saturday Night (single version)". CD
