Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

Chambers BrothersPeople Get Ready ... LP
Vault, 1965. Very Good- ... $6.99
The first album ever from The Chambers Brother – a much rootsier set than the psychedelic soul that later earned them fame in the 60s! The set's heavy on influences from folk, blues, and gospel – and pitches the group more towards the crossover college scene than the mainstream soul crowd – thanks to an appreciatively rootsy style of production that really has the vocals and acoustic instrumentation presented without any other augmentation. Tracks were recorded live at The Unicorn in Boston and the Ash Grove in LA – and most numbers are covers, with versions of "Summertime", "Your Old Land", "It's All Over Now", "Reconsider Baby", "People Get Ready", "Tore Up", and "Money".

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

A great early album by Jimmy – and one that was issued in the US by A&M, but was licensed from London in the UK. The production is great, and tracks mix raw rocksteady rhythms with some great arrangements that add some nice baroque touches at times, especially on the title cut, which features some very nice string parts. Titles include "Hello Sunshine", "Come Into My Life", "Hard Road To Travel", "Time Will Tell", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "My Ancestors". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonMy People ... CD
Contact/Boplicity (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
A great high-concept composition from Duke Ellington – one that rivals the earlier brilliance of his Liberian Suite! Like that one, vocals are a key part of this long-form work – a special performance done for the Century Of Negro Progress Exposition in Chicago in 1963 – with an all-star cast that includes Jimmy Jones both at the piano and conductor's stand; Joya Sherrill on vocals with the Irving Bunton Singers, Jimmy Grissom, Jimmy McPhail, and Lil Greenwood; Billy Strayhorn on celeste, Juan Amalbert on conga, and other familiar Ellingtonians in the larger group! The tunes have a mix of gospel and folk roots, turned towards more modern Ellington compositional modes – and almost all numbers feature vocals, including one with narration by Ellington himself. Titles include "Will You Be There", "Come Sunday", "David Danced", "Montage", "My Mother My Father", "My People", "The Blues Ain't", and "What Color Is Virtue". CD

Not to be confused with the other group of the same name that had a loose association with Kool & the Gang, this is the Canadian white funk group who released a few singles and just this one LP on Paramount. The monster cut here is "I Like What I Like", a nice stormer with a fast funk sound throughout, and some tight organ grooves. Also includes"Everyday People", "Travellin'", "I Get That Feeling", "Music Man", "Experience In Love", "You Make Me Wonder", "Don't Wait For Tomorrow", "Nova Scotia Home Blues" and "Girls".

Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, percussion, and sing-song vocals! The horns give the whole thing a bit more of a straight Afro Funk punch at times – which balances things out nicely. The flipside is every bit as charming as the main track – with similarly bright lyrics, and cool guitar bits that almost come across with a steel pan sort of feel at times! 12-inch, Vinyl record

ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Really nice work from The Four Tops – proof that they were still going quite quite strong after Motown! The album's got a hip sound that shows the group moving through a wider range of emotions than we ever remember – crafting rich deep harmonies that still stand apart from the big wave of sweet soul quartets of the early 70s, and which sparkle with all the emotion that Levi Stubbs' voice had to offer. Includes their great theme to Shaft In Africa, the track "Are You Man Enough" – plus loads of other great ones like "I Just Can't Get You Out Of My Mind", "It Won't Be The First Time", "Sweet Understanding Love", "Too Little, Too Late", "Peace Of Mind", and "Main Street People".

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".

Lee HazlewoodNSVIPs – Not So Very Important People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/1972, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well! Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as the album Trouble Is A Lonesome Town – but Hazlewood's a lot more tongue-in-cheek with his presentation, and directs the lyrics towards much more biting commentary – not entirely politically progressive, but definitely a larger sense of society beyond the individual. The cast of characters spin out wonderfully – the NSVIPS promised in the title – but they also tie together to present this portrait of an America just waking up in the mid 60s – able to see itself more clearly, yet without any of the overpowering emotions in years to come. That balance is Hazlewood's really special contribution to music at this point – and is given great shape here with help in the studio from Reprise Records whiz kid Jimmy Bowen. Titles include "Have You Made Any New Bombs Today", "I Ain't Gonna Be", "I Might Break Even", "Go Die Big City", "I Had A Friend", and "Everybody Calls Me Something". LP, Vinyl record album

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsGive The People What They Want (limited edition mono version with download ) ... LP
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Tremendous work from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – a set that took a bit longer to hit the racks than expected, but which really shows a richness that more than makes up for the delay! Sharon's a singer who's always been great – but she steps out strongly here with a sense of maturity that seems to take her vocals even farther than before – and The Dap Kings are more than ready to match her energy with some funky work of their own! Jones has gone through a lot in recent years – both with the band and in her own personal life – and the record's a proud summation of life's challenges and triumphs, served up in the instant-classic style that has made Sharon one of the greatest living soul singers of the past few decades. Bosco Mann knocked things out of the park with his raw production – and also wrote a good number of tracks on the set too – and titles include "Making Up & Breaking Up", "Long Time Wrong Time", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Retreat", "Stranger To My Happiness", and "Now I See".

New Eddie KendricksPeople Hold On ... LP
Tamla, 1972. Very Good- ... $19.99
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the time and place of the record, yet also help it transcend so many other standard soul modes of the period too! Arrangements are wonderfully complex – as you'll hear on the classic groovers "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" and "Date With The Rain" – each very different numbers, but both a showcase for Kendricks' wonderful vocal approach. Other titles include the progressive "People Hold On" – plus "I'm On The Sideline", "Day By Day", "If You Let Me", "Let Me Run Into Your Lonely Heart", and "Someday We'll Have A Better World".

The album's a surprisingly hard rocker in parts, and has a darkness that's a nice change from some of the late 70s Kinks material – but also shows Ray still able to come up with some more tender numbers in just the right spots. Tracks include "Add It Up", "Destroyer", "Yo Yo", "Art Lover", "Better Things", "Killer's Eyes", "Around The Dial", and "Give The People What They Want". LP, Vinyl record album

Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach to their work that made for some pretty great records. This album's their second, and it's steeped in a strong sense of the boogaloo, complete with the best Cotique Records elements like drug references, soulful vocals, silly lyrics, and other nice touches!

Johnny LytleSoulful Rebel/People & Love ... CD
Milestone/Dusty Groove, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Two lost smokers from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – back to back on a single CD! The Soulful Rebel is lost early 70s set from Lytle – totally funky, but in a way that's very different than his famous 60s work! The album's got a sweet electric groove that comes not only from Johnny's vibes, but also from the sweet Hammond and Fender Rhodes of Billy Nunn, and the smoking guitar of David Spinozza – who really wails away here, and brings in a cutting edge to the tunes that's a lot sharper than some of his later work! Lytle's vibes are wonderful throughout – filled with that sense of space, soul, and timing that's always made him one of the grooviest players ever on the instrument – and this time around, he seems to have an even greater ear for unusual tones – in a way that makes the album sparkle strongly throughout! The rhythms are smoking, too – with Ron Carter on electric bass, Jozell Carter on funky drums, and Ray Barretto on congas – cooking things up righteously on the album's funky tunes. Highlights include the stone smoker "Gunky", a great remake of "The New Village Caller", and a reworking of "Lela" – plus the extended "Soulful Rebel Suite" – mighty nice! People & Love is one of Johnny Lytle's most righteous albums ever – a soaring, spacious set that's almost to Lytle's career what Gears was to Johnny Hammond's! Of course, Lytle's groove here is different – no Mizell production, and a mellower feel overall – but the unbridled space of 70s Milestone is definitely a key influence here – and Johnny stretches out here like never before! The players are all pretty hip – and include Daahoud Hadi (aka Butch Cornell) on electric piano and organ, Marvin Cabell on flute and tenor, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Betty Glamann on harp, and Jozell Carter on drums – all perfect mates here for Johnny's spiritual exploration of sound with his vibes – in ways that are almost more amazing than work from Bobby Hutcherson or Roy Ayers at the time! Titles include an amazing original called "Libra", plus "Tawhid", "Where Is The Love", "Family", and a version of "People Make the World Go Round". CD

The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing!

A great record with a really great little lineup – rock-solid players who come together wonderfully under the vision of the leader! Christian McBride's really found a way to focus his energy in recent years – and this quintet set is great proof of that – a refining of all the ideas he put forth a decade or more ago, but delivered with a lot more punch here – partly due to the album's well-chosen lineup as well. In addition to Christian on bass, the set's got stellar vibes from Warren Wolf – a player we always love – plus alto from Steve Wilson, piano from Peter Martin, and drums from Carl Allen – all working together on a set of tracks that are mostly original – and which have a soulful sparkle that really stands out. Titles include "Listen To The Heroes Cry", "Ms Angelou", "Gang Gang", "Unusual Suspects", "The Movement Revisited", and "New Hope's Angel". CD

Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene in Tokyo and Germany! The approach on this record is kind of like a mixture between Chaka Khan and Joni Mitchell – lots of upbeat grooves, mixed with jazzy acoustic guitar and some wonderfully soaring vocals – in a style that needs to be heard to be fully understood. The standout cut is the amazing "Jimmy Jean", a soaring jazzy dance cut with unbelievable vocals – and other nice ones include "Sliding", "Ain't No Two Ways", and "All To You". CD

The Moon People – aka Los Astronautas – were a Latin Soul studio band who played behind some of the other killer recordings on the Speed Label. They're best known for their sock-boogaloo instrumental "Land Of Love" – a stone jammer which kicks off the album – and their forte is blending together Latin rhythms, soul instrumentation, and kind of a mod 60s easy production style, handled here by maestro Morty Craft. The album's got a really really weird feel – part Latin Soul, part 60s soundtrack – almost as if Joe Cuba and Quincy Jones were hanging out together! Titles include "Land Of Love", "Morty's Harem", "Indian Soul", "Happy Soul", "Revolt", and "Last Train To Clarksville". LP, Vinyl record album

Hot Cup, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the greatest records we've heard so far from this ultra-hip ensemble – the group's own version of the classic Miles Davis album Kind Of Blue – played in track by track sequence, but with a lot of the group's own flavors on the solos, even though they follow the originals very strongly too! The tracks are all long and wonderful – and done in a style that's quite faithful to the original, but as a way of showing these guys' continuing commitment to working jazz roots into their freely expressive music – a path that's taken them through a run of music from Ornette Coleman to trad jazz, before landing them here at Miles Davis! Peter Evans handles trumpet – quite a heady role, but done well – and Jon Irabagon blows both the alto and tenor sax parts, alongside Ron Stabinsky on piano, Moppa Elliott on bass, and Kevin Shea on drums. Titles include – of course – "So What", "Freddie Freeloader", "All Blues", "Blue In Green", and "Flamenco Sketches". CD

New Mostly Other People Do The KillingRed Hot ... CD
Hot Cup, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
Incredible sounds from this ultra-hip group – a jazz combo who blow us away again again with each new recording! This time around, Mostly Other People Do The Killing take on the sounds of trad jazz – but in a way that gives the whole thing a very avant spin, and pushes the music far past any expectations you might have! True, the lineup features the kind instrumentation you'd hear in a New Orleans combo – soprano sax, trombone, and even some banjo – but there's also some electronics in the mix, and some very free, loose rhythms from bassist Moppa Elliott and drummer Kevin Shea – and excellent piano from Ron Stabinsky – which makes the whole thing really take off. Plus, you've got Jon Irabagon on both soprano and c melody sax – played with a very offbeat edge – alongside trumpet from Peter Evans and bass trombone from David Taylor – a lineup that's full of surprise throughout. Titles include "The Shickshinny Shimmy", "Zelienople", "Red Hot", "King Of Prussia", "Gum Stump", and "Turkey Foot Corner". CD

New Mostly Other People Do The KillingSlippery Rock ... CD
Hot Cup, 2012. New Copy ... $9.99
Marvelous work from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – and a record that's quite different from its cheesy looking cover! The quartet never fail to amaze us with their creative energy – and this time around, they're paying homage to that moment in 80s jazz when the underground was brimming up in the mainstream – that great point when creative musicians were finding wider exposure on labels like Columbia, Novus, or Blue Note – yet still serving up sounds that were true to their roots. The cheesy packaging is a nod to the visual aesthetics of the time – and the music is a great contrast, which was not uncommon for the period – lots of sharp reeds from Jon Irabagon, percolatedly soulful trumpet riffs from Peter Evans, snapping percussion from Kevin Shea, and these warm, round, deep lines on acoustic bass from Moppa Elliott – who also wrote and produced the set. Titles include "Sayre", "President Polk", "Can't Tell Shipp From Shohola", "Hearts Content", "Jersey Shore", and "Dexter, Wayne, & Mobley". CD

Shirley NanetteAll Of Your Life/People Are Thinking ... 7-inch
Truth & Soul, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $6.99
A wicked groove from the Pacific Northwest underground of the early 70s – a collaboration between vocalist Shirley Nanette and the wild guitarist Hanc Swarn! "All Of Your Life" has these monstrous funky drums on the bottom – then mixes Shirley's righteous vocals with Hanc's cool guitar solo lines – really tripped-out, almost in an Eddie Fisher way, and merged beautifully alongside the lyrics! "People Are Thinking" is even more mysterious – with an exotic, almost Eastern groove – thanks to angular reed work next to the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the best LPs ever by PUTS – with typically strong rhymes by Thes One & Double K – and a theme that pokes fun at their perennial underground status while flaunting their skills at the forefront of it. Stepfather has some tracks that feel a little bit more bare bones than some of their busier beats of the past, and all the better to service the great rhymes. Another fine effort from one the most dependable acts of the past decade! Tracks include "Step In", "Pass The 40", "Pumpin'", "Flex Off", "Tuxedo Rap", "Days Like These", "Jamboree (Parts 1 & 2)", "Eat Street", "Crown Ones", "La9X", "Letter To The Old School", "More Than You Know", "4 Dollar Afro", "You", "On & On" and more.

People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Although they labored for years in the Philly singles-only scene of the late 60s and early 70s, People's Choice finally got their chance to cut some full LPs during the late 70s for Philly International. By that time, the band had changed their harder funk sound into a more proto-disco sound, aimed at the dancefloor, and very much designed to capture the same sort of groove that Philly International was winning with at the time. This album's one of their better ones for the label – and although it's got some silly moments, there's a few nice uptempo soul tracks. Includes the nice mellow stepper "Soft & Tender", plus "Rough Ride", "Stay With Me", "A Greater Truth", "Your Love Stays On My Mind", and "Turn Me Loose". LP, Vinyl record album

Almost a return to basics for Airto and Flora – singing here in more of a jazzy fusion style than on some of her late 70s R&B sessions. The Concord production almost gives the album the feel of a Tania Maria set for the label – using core jazzy backings, plus some expanded instrumentation – at one minute sounding stripped down and jazzy, but at others going for some more contemporary soul styles. There's enough good tunes on here to make the album worthwhile, and help you get past the few clunkers that sort of get in the way – and titles include "Nvula Leza Kia/Humbiumbi", "Jogral", "Bad Jive", "20 Years Blue", "Shoulder", and "New Flora".

The set really lives up to the promise of Reel People's work on singles over the years – filled with the kind of warm soul that we've come to love in their music, and which sounds even better here spread out over the course of a full LP! Every track is really wonderful – not a bit of filler at all – and the set's easily one of the strongest releases of its type in a long time!

These guys just keep on getting better and better – and with an album like this, Reel People may well be one of our favorite current combos for the dancefloor! The sound here is wonderfully soulful – a style that draws from a legacy of grooves that stretches back to Stevie Wonder, but which has some of the leaner qualities of the British scene in the wake of groups like Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai! 70s influences abound, but they're never cliched, and used in just the right doses alongside some more contemporary rhythms on the bottom – and perhaps best of all, the set features vocals from a great range of guests – including Omar, Vanessa Freeman, Joy Rose, Darien, and Tony Momrelle. Titles include "Alibi", "Outta Love", "Amazing", "Rise & Fly", "High", "Ordinary Man", "Love Is Where You Are", and "Anything You Want". CD

Vocals are by Omar, Tony Momrelle, and Tasita D'Mour – and titles include "Outta Love (4 Hero rmx)", "It Will Be (Kyoto Jazz Massive rmx)", "Love Is Where You Are (The Realm rmx)", "Alibi (Rasmus Faber rmx)", "Amazing (Jon Cutler's distant music mix)", "Upside (Bugz upside mix)", "Upside (Pete Kuszma rmx)", "Love Is Where You Are (Orto rmx)", and "Anything You Want (Domu rmx)". 12 tracks in all!

The groove here is wonderful – that maturing of the spacey sounds that bubbled forth from London over a decade ago – pushed way past cliche, and only occasionally aimed at the dancefloor – leaving plenty of room for deeper soul on some of the cuts – and making us feel like we'd grabbed up an armful of expensive import singles, but all at one mighty nice price! Titles include "Sure", "Star", "Golden Lady", "80s Love", and "Tell Me Why" by Reel People – plus "Love It" by BSTC, "It's Hard" by Restless Soul Fun Band, "The Tea" by Choklate, "The Galactica Suite" by Simon Grey, and "Nights In Africa (Reel People's Afro Soul edit)" by Renn.

An incredibly interesting record – and more of a spoken album than a jazz one, but it shares some great jazz work by Oliver Nelson too! The album's a loving tribute to Carl B. Stokes, the first black mayor of a major American city (Cleveland) – and it's one of the strongest in a series of African-American culture albums by the Flying Dutchman label at the time. Side one of the record features a press conference with Stokes, in which he outlines his ideas for revitalizing the Cleveland area. But even better is side two – which features a beautiful original composition by Nelson, entitled "A Black Suite For String Quartet & Jazz Orchestra", and which features recitations by Stokes of material by Langston Hughes and Gil Scott-Heron. The whole thing's great – extremely powerful and progressive, with tracks that include "Paint It Black", "I Too Sing America", "Mother To Son", "Sit Down", and "I Dream A World".

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!

Highlights include the storming cut "I Can't Get Next To You", a trippy remake of "Hey Jude", the original "Don't Let The Joneses Get You Down", and the haunting "Message From A Black Man" – one of the most righteous moments ever in late 60s Motown!

The roots of Lisa Stansfield, and lots of great lost moments too – a wealth of rare remixes and other odd bits – and from what we can tell, none of these were used as bonus tracks on the other 2CD reissues of her albums! The depths of Lisa's music knows no bounds – as her strong run of full length records really tops, if not beats the efforts of any of her UK soul contemporaries. But the albums are only part of the picture, as the Stansfield sound has been spread strongly over so many other great collaborations with other artists – including Coldcut, Massive Attack, Frankie Knuckles, and many others all featured in this 3CD set. The package has a great heavy book-styled cover – and features 33 tracks that include "Change (metamorphosis mix)", "What Did I Do To You (anti poll tax dub)", "Set Your Loving Free (low life mix)", "People Hold On (full length disco mix)", "Let's Just Call It Love (feel it mix)", "The Line (Ian O'Brien's benfleet mix)", "Live Together (big beat mix)", "All Around The World (American club mix)", "I'm Leavin (Hex Hector NYC rough mix)", "Never Never Gonna Give You Up (Frankie Knuckles classic club mix)", "What Did I Do To You (Morales mix)", "You Can't Deny It (Sky King mix)", and lots lots more!

A rarity from the early 90s funky underground by Bus People Express – who were alternately working as Soul Saints during this period – and they would soon trailblaze the contemporary funk scene as Poets Of Rhythm! "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" starts out with stripped-down drums and some gritty call and response group vocals, before the guitar and bass come storming in. Reminiscent of James Brown at his rawest and grittiest, ala Motherlode! "South Carolina" has a slower cooking style with some southern funky soul swagger, as you might guess from the title. A prescient blast of modern funk to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Ray CharlesMessage From The People ... LP
Tangerine/ABC, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A righteous early 70s set from Ray Charles – and a record with a much deeper vibe than you might guess from the image of Ray and some kids on the cover! Arrangements were handled by Quincy Jones, Sid Feller, and Mike Post – and the record is kind of a 70s take on the fuller modes that Charles explored for ABC during the 60s – moved into more contemporary territory with some sweet Fender Rhodes, full strings, and a funky undercurrent in some of the rhythms – never too forced or over the top, but in ways that makes some of the tunes sly steppers that work great with Charles' aging vocals. Titles include "Abraham Martin & John", "Heaven Help Us All", "There'll Be No Peace Without All Men As One", "Hey Mister", "Lift Every Voice & Sing", "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong", and "What Have They Done To My Song Ma".

New Lee DorseyNight People ... LP
ABC, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoother set than usual for Lee Dorsey – recorded with frequent partner Allen Toussaint, but done in a sweeter, more modern soul style that's a refreshing change from earlier years! (C'mon, you didn't expect Lee to keep hitting the same old chunky grooves – did you?) The shift here is almost like that of Lamont Dozier's in the 70s – as Lee moves into a fuller, richer sound – one that shows that he's got a lot of different aspects to his music that hadn't showed up on previous albums, and which nicely brings him out of the Crescent City soul ghetto. There's till some nice NO rhythms going down on the set, and all the tracks are originals by Toussaint – but honestly, the smoothest cuts are almost the best – and offer a great chance to hear Dorsey's great vocals in a whole new mode. Tracks include "Soul Mine", "Night People", "Can I Be The One", "Say It Again", and "Keep On Doing It To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch. Vinyl plays with a slight warp, but played through fine.)

New ImpressionsKeep On Pushing/People Get Ready ... CD
Kent (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of the most excellent Impressions ABC albums, and the one's that are always nearly impossible to find on wax. Recorded in the years 1964 and 1965, just when Curtis Mayfield was beginning to get his political teeth, but when he still had an amazing talent for heartrending love songs. Includes "We're In Love", "See The Real Me", "Get Up and Move", "I Love You", "I Made a Mistake", "I Thank Heaven", "Long, Long Winter", and (of course) the famous title cuts. CD

New Azar LawrencePeople Moving ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s! The set's less an electric funk outing than it is a spiritual jazz set, with keyboards and guitar in the mix – beautifully put together by the young Skip Scarborough, with a feel that's very similar to Gary Bartz's work with Larry Mizell! Azar's reeds are wonderful – soaring, searching, in a style that's inspired by Coltrane, but with a more direct focus – again like Bartz, or maybe a bit like Hadley Caliman too – and the record features strong work from a lineup that includes Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, Paul Jackson on bass, and Harvey Mason on drums. The whole thing's got a great Fantasy Records funk groove – and includes many nice titles like "Theme For A New Day", "Kickin Back", "Canticle For The Universe", "Gratitude", and a great take on Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love".

New Milt Matthews IncFor The People ... CD
Catalyst/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A weird little soul album from singer Milt Matthews – one that mixes up a range of late 60s influences, including Hendrix guitar licks, southern soul vocals, and kind of a rootsy crossover feel that's almost equal parts rock and soul! There's a lot of wah wah and organ in the mix – and the lyrics are pretty righteous on most songs – almost in the sort of territory that other artists were using to cross over much bigger in the US market – a space that's somewhere between Otis Redding and Joe Cocker, but nicely rough around the edges too. Titles include "Runaway People", "Disaster Area", "That's What I Feel", and a version of "Hard Day's Night". CD

New Mostly Other People Do The KillingForty Fort ... CD
Hot Cup, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of most joyful and energetic young jazz ensembles around – a group that's both powerful and playful, reverent of its forbears yet stands facing forward – with a fantastic fourth album in Forty Fort! The group is again working in their unique blend of jazz styles, with nods to the great Blue Note and Impulse hard bop, swing and 60s avant garde sounds and more fiery modern bursts of noise and energy, and the dynamics somehow work together no matter how far the group reaches. Genuinely exciting stuff. We really love this group, and it pleases us that they're quite prolific and keep the greatness coming! Titles include group composer/bassist Moppa Elliot's originals "Pen Argyl", "Rough And Ready", "Blue Ball", "Nanticoke Coke", "Forty Fort". "Little Hope", "St Mary's Proctor", "Round Bottom, Square Top", and the Neal Hefti gem "Cute". CD

New People's ChoiceBoogie Down USA ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". LP, Vinyl record album

New People's ChoicePeople's Choice – The Casablanca Sessions (album plus bonus unissued tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Shout (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic People's Choice album for Casablanca – plus bonus single mixes and unissued tracks! The original album is an extra clubby effort from the group – one that has them moving over to Casablanca after their albums for Philly International, but still staying strongly in their groove, thanks to production from Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound Studios! Tracks are upbeat, but funky – mixing the lead vocals and keyboards of Frank Brunson with some even more soulful female backing voices, and an overall groove that's in the tight Sigma mode that was starting to show up strongly at Salsoul. Tracks are long, but less disco than funky club – and the mix of male and female vocals together often creates a slightly righteous feel that you don't always get on this sort of record. Titles include "Warm Nights Soft Lights", "Bad Dancin Rita", "My Feet Won't Move But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Special Things For You", "If I Knew Then What I Know Now", "You Out To Be Dancin", and "Sweeter Than Honey". This CD edtion from Shout UK opens with the 45 Mix versions of "You Ought To Be Dancin'" and "My Feet Won't Move But My Shoes Did The Boogie", and it closes with the unissued "Always In My Heart" and "Bad Bad Rita", plus "Hey Everybody! (Party Hearty)". CD

New Soul SearchersWe The People ... LP
Sussex, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One the all time great funky albums of the 70s – a mad little record with a sense of rhythm and timing that was years ahead of its time! The Soul Searchers (along with Chuck Brown) later became known for their heavy-hitting Go Go work at the end of the decade – but here, they're a really free-thinking outfit with a lot of jazz in their funk – and a willingness to change up the beats and timings in ways that push the record miles ahead from an average funk outing. Tracks swirl around with an amazing intensity – supported by guitar work from Brown, organ from Hilton Felton, and some really great horns from Don Tillery and Lloyd Pinchback. The album features a wonderful remake of "Think" – plus the great originals "1993", "Soul To The People", "Blowout", and "We The People". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some splitting on the top seam.)

New Sweet Charles (aka Charles Sherell)For Sweet People From Sweet Charles ... CD
People/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!
