New HorizonsSomething New/Gonna Have Big Fun ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983/1984. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
2 classics from New Horizons – back to back on a single CD! Something New is something great from New Horizons – the group's second album, and even tighter than the first! Roger Troutman had a very big hand in the record, lending the group some very Zapp-ish touches in their grooves – a great blend for the catchy vocals of the group, in ways that even have the mellow cuts bouncing along nicely! The basslines are tight, but never overdone – and the record's got a real sense of class and timing that takes it way past some of the overly-familiar sides of the Troutman universe. Titles include "Your Thing Is Your Thing", "Something New", "Reaching For New Horizons", "I Can't Tell You", "County Line", and "Your Thing (rap)". Gonna Have Big Fun is a bouncy bouncy gem from New Horizons – a set that's got help from Roger and all the Troutman crew, yet somehow manages to step forward strongly with its own voice as well! There's plenty of bass at the bottom of the grooves, but things are never too popping or too-tight – just relaxed, almost mellow at points, with this wonderful flow that works perfectly for the group's hip vocals. The group's got kind of a youthful approach – almost like a harmony group raised in the generation of P-Funk, with that sort of style as their main inspiration – quite different than the approach of the mellower groups of a decade before. Titles include "Big Fun", "Dance Frite", "U Can Do (Watcha Wanna)", "Love To Spend The Night", and "Get Ready Let's Party". CD

New Archie Bell & The DrellsWhere Will You Go When The Party's Over ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent set of midtempo soul tracks recorded at Sigma Sound – and probably the group's greatest album for Philly International! The progression from raw Texas funk to smooth Philly soul was a big one – but Archie and crew did it wonderfully, and kept a lot of their soul intact during the move – really shining strongly in this new mode, and keeping their sound alive a lot longer than most of their late 60s contemporaries. Proof that the group sound was one of the biggest assets of the Philly imprint – whatever the form, and whatever the origin. Includes the stellar cuts "Don't Let Love Get You Down" and "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over" – plus "Everybody Have A Good Time", "I Swear You're Beautiful", "I Bet You I Can Do That Dance You're Doing", and "Nothing Comes Easy".

New Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr.Christmas With The Rat Pack ... CD
EMI, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ring a ding, ding, Merry Christmas! As many holiday recordings that the boys made, together and in their individual careers, it's a bit of a surprise that Capitol is only now releasing a holiday Rat compilation, but here it is! The material ranges from Frank and Dean's widely available late 50s solo work, to relatively obscure output from a decade or so down the road, with a couple warm, cozy winter tunes that are not specifically written for the holidays, but make great brandy-sipping fireplace tunes. You get Frank's solo honey croon on "Mistletoe And Holly", "The First Noel", and "The Chirstmas Waltz", Dean's similar, but boozier approach on "Silver Bells", "Peace On Earth/Silent Night", and "White Christmas", Sammy making his magic on "The Christmas Song", "Jingle Bells", and the previously unreleased "Christmas Time All Over The World", and plenty more of each party. 21 tunes in all (whew!) and maybe best of all, "A Marshmallow World" and "Auld Lang Syne" – two live gems from Dean's 1967 and 1970 TV specials when the crew were at their hard/easy living, boozy, now sounding best!

New VariousLegendary Wild Rockers – A Collection Ofd Rare, Rockabilly, Surf & Exotica – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seedy little rockabilly burners, rumblingly raucous rhythm & blues firebombs, bleary-eyed sax stormers and echoey guitar exotica compiled by Keb Darge & Little Edith – raw gutbuckety groovers from the late 50s & early 60s! Legendary Wild Rockers gets extra points from us on a couple of levels. The title starts with the word "Legendary" – but it's NOT filled with the likely suspects – it's got great stuff by Darrel Rhodes, The Moonlighters, The Valentines, Sonee West, The Gee Cees, Kenny Smith, The Reekers, The Carnations and more that we don't see enough of. It's also great for the way it demonstrates the far-reaching taste of the compilers – and it's simply a lot fun! 20 tracks in all: "Prissy Missy" by Dale McBride, "Tornado" by The Jiants, "Flipsville" by Stormy Gale, "That's It Man" by The Valentines, "Scorpion" by The Carnations, "The Goo Goo Muck" by Ronnie Cook & The Gaylads, "The Itch" by Carle Cherry, "I'm So Lonesome Baby" by Kenny Smith, "Talk About A Party" by Boogaloo And His Gallant Crew, "That's It Man" by The Valentines and more.

New VariousMighty Super Funk – Rare 45s & Undiscovered Masters 1967 to 1978 – Super Funk Vol 6 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Our favorite kind of funk is Super Funk – and this fab entry to the long-running series definitely keeps up the groove! As before, there's plenty of rare tracks here – most pulled from obscure singles of late 60s/early 70s vintage – and some even from rare studio tapes that were never issued at the time! Most tracks are short, with a nicely gritty groove – the kind of funky 45 madness that will always keep us digging for rare 7" singles – put together by the BGP crew with a real understanding of the groove! There's some especially nice female singers in the mix – almost creating a mini Sister Funk focus on the package – but there's also great guy singers and groups too. 20 tracks in all – with cuts that include "The Sneak" by The Douzer, "Queen Of Losers" by Eleanor Rigby, "Groovy Baby" by Kim Tamanga, "It's Mookie Time" by Cleveland Eaton & The Kats, "Party Time" by James Carpenter, "Moving Woman" by 87th Off Broadway, "Bad Bad Woman (part 1)" by Marie Franklin, "He Say She Say" by Chet Ivey, "Cold Sweat" by Julio Zavalla, "Shakin Up The Nation" by The Radiations, "One Sweet Song" by Gloria Lucas, and "I'm Moving Home" by Mary Alice McCall.

New SlaveSlave ... LP
Cotillion, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Far and away the band's best record! The album's got a fresh funk sound that takes an earlier 70s ensemble style and slicks it down a bit – but thanks to some great drum work by Tim Dozier (Steve Arrington had yet to join the band), and a subtle riffing bass style by Mark Adams, the band had a groove that was quite revolutionary, and which set them apart from the legions of funk imitators that were springing up at the end of the 70s. The high points of the album is the band's seminal "Slide", which is followed up with "Son Of Slide" – and both tracks have these amazing dark repetitive grooves that have really stood the test of time (thanks in part to a famous sample by Tribe Called Quest!) Other tracks include "You & Me", "Party Hardy", "Screw Your Wig On Tite", and "Separated". LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track one. Cover has light wear, with some peeling and seam splitting along the bottom.)
