New Rickey CallowayGet It Right (parts 1 & 2) (green vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Heavy funk from Rickey Calloway – once a lost 70s artist, but now at the top of our stack, thanks to the efforts of Kenny Dope! "Get It Right" is a totally frenetic little track – one with riffing guitar in the rhythms, played at a level that matches the best grooves of the James Brown Band of the late 60s – and Rickey himself seems to be taking a cue from The Godfather in his scratchy, screaming vocals for the track! A monster all the way through – two-part jamming that never lets up! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Dap-KingsI'm In Love (inst parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99
A rare instrumental take on a cut that Rickey Calloway cut with The Dap Kings a few years back – one that doesn't feature any vocals at all from Rickey – but has even more room for The Dap Kings to open up and groove! We're not sure why Rickey's name is on the label, but that oddness is more than fine with us – because there's a snapping drum break that sets the whole tune on fire, and has us held rapt through the riffing guitar, romping horns, and sweet keyboards that spin out over both sides of the single! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Dap-KingsStay In The Groove (inst parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99
Not Rickey Calloway at all – but just The Dap Kings, stepping out in an instrumental reading of the tune! The track's a stone smoker right out of the James Brown generation of the late 60s – really wicked drums at the bottom, which step out in this snapping breakdown near the end of part 1 – setting a fire that's picked up beautifully on part 2! Proof that the Kings are always great – even away from Daptone! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersGet It Right Part 3/I Touched The Clouds ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the hardest, heaviest cuts ever cut by the great Rickey Calloway – thanks to some super-intense backing from the Soul Surfers – who are at their best JB mode here! Guitar and horns and everything comes right down on the beat and bassline – and Rickey's vocals rival the best of the classic funky 45 generation, too! A cut that you'd swear was vintage, but which is really the best of the contemporary underground. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersShed A Tear (I Touched The Clouds)/Get It Right Part 4 ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
A killer bit of slow funk from the great Rickey Calloway – done in this mellow-stepping way that's still mighty hard hitting – and topped with vocals that take us back to James Brown in his best early years! "Get It Right" comes across here in a fiercely funky part 4 – all instrumental riffing from the Soul Surfers, with some mad Hammond and horns, and lots of scratchy guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Rickey CallowayTell Me (Kenny Dope mix, Kenny Dope inst) ... 12-inch
Kay Dee, Early 70s. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Snapping drums and heavy funk – a completely heavy-hitting number that rivals the best James Brown work of the early 70s! The track's a smoking cooker that never lets up – from the first rattletrap on the drums, to the shouted righteous vocals from Bobby, to the monstrously riffing guitar in the middle, and the great little time change as the tune moves on! And as usual with Kenny Dope, the mix here is very respectful of the original – and only seems to bring out the funkiest qualities of the drums and the guitar even more – without messing with the real charm of the track! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Dap Kings & Rickey CallowayStay In The Groove (parts 1 & 2)/I'm In Love (parts 3 & 4) (2 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 2013. New Copy 2 x 7" ... Out Of Stock
An amazing pairing of talents! Funk vocal giant Ricky Calloway works here with backing from The Dap Kings – recording in the Daptone studios, with production from Kenny Dope! All the cooks on board definitely don't spoil the broth – and instead, the cut may well be the sort of number we've been waiting to hear for years from Ricky! "I'm In Love" is presented here with parts 3 and 4 – which we don't think were on any previous singles – and is a stone monster too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousKenny Dope & Keb Darge Presents Kay Dee Records Vol 2 ... CD
Kay Dee, 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A treasure trove of rare funk – all hand-picked by Keb Darge and Kenny Dope, two names we trust more than most when it comes to rare funk! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and a handful are presented here in new edits by Kenny – not remixes, and very much in the spirit of the original 45s – but re-presented in ways that bring up the funkiest bits from the bottom! The sound quality here is great – often much clearer than the original 45s – and the package is even better than the first set – a much-needed dose of the funky Kay Dee sound for the CD market. Titles include Kenny Dope mixes of "Save The Youth" by Mellow Madness, "I Wanna Be Loved By You" by Family Of Eve, "Puddin" by Belle Farms Estate, "Shed A Tear" by Rickey Calloway, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, and "Masterpiece" by Clarence Reid – plus the cuts "Latin Freak" by 7 Miles Per Hour Band, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "I'm Your Man" by Spade Brigade, "Super Strut" by Kashmere Stage Band, and "What It Takes To Live" by Chosen Few Band.
