Andrew Soul/Steven Tang/Prof DelacroixOsunlade Atonement Sampler – Disconnected Thoughts/Sunspot/Build Her ... LP
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and this EP features three tracks from the full CD – "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, and "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix.

HeadhuntersSurvival Of The Fittest/Straight From The Gate ... CD
Arista/R2 (UK), 1975/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
A seminal set of grooves – two Headhunters classics on a single set! First up is Survival Of The Fittest – a landmark bit of jazz funk from one of the greatest backup groups of the 70s! Herbie Hancock first brought The Headhunters to light – working with the San Francisco-based combo that included Bennie Maupin, Mike Clark, Paul Jackson, and Bill Summers – using their sound to give his work the right dose of funk it needed to reach new audiences during the decade. This album's the first to feature the group on their own, without Herbie – and if we don't mind saying so, they sound even better without him! The whole thing's a wonderful mix of jazz funk grooves and very unusual rhythms – and the record contains the monster full length version of "God Make Me Funky", which is 9 minutes and 35 seconds of non stop funk, plus the cuts "If You've Got It, You'll Get It", "Magic", and "Here & Now". Straight From The Gate is a killer – and the album's much more of a solid soul effort than the group's debut! The vocals are better, with more of a feel for the lyrics – and the songs themselves are a great mix of funk and smooth soul. There's still plenty of tight jamming and cool electronics – and the group still includes Mike Clark, Bennie Maupin,and Paul Jackson. Includes the sample cut "I Remember I Made You Cry", plus "Pork Soda", "Dreams", "Straight From The Gate", and "Mayonnaise". CD

New Osunlade & OthersOccult Symphonic ... CD
R2 (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection of spiritual house tracks from the contemporary underground – all picked and mixed by Osunlade, all with a feel that's quite similar to his own Yoruba Records work! Beats are deep and usually very bassy – which gives the music a warm, earthy style right from the start – and makes the tracks less bombastic and more organic overall. Instrumentation is usually more percussive than melodic, but shifts over time to create this rich, soulful tapestry – a quality that holds through especially strong over the course of the mix. In fact, most tracks feel as if they might well have come from the same artists or producers – a further testament to Osunlade's ear for a mix like this. Titles include "Black Gold" by Itamar Sagi, "Umlat2" by Mike Dehnert, "Ironia" by Andy Catana, "Deploy" by Atheus, "Under The Gold Beat" by Pascal Feos, "Snowblind" by Simon Hinter, and "Childhood" by Christopher Rau.

New Star WarsChristmas In The Stars – The Star Wars Christmas Album ... LP
RSO, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key document of how strong the Star Wars pull was in late 70s merchandising – an album of Star Wars-related Holiday tunes – put together by Meco, with guest voices by C3PO and R2D2! The overall feel is kind of a Christmas take on Meco's take on Star Wars – with full arrangements by Meco, Harold Wheeler, and Lance Quinn. Titles include "Sleigh Ride", "Merry Merry Christmas", "Christmas In The Stars", "Bells Bells Bells", and "The Odds Against Christmas". LP, Vinyl record album
