New FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Get Back (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweat BandSweat Band ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1980. Very Good ... $6.99
A tasty bit of late P-Funk! The album was recorded in 1980, on the wane of the main P-Funk groups – and it features Bootsy and Fred Wesley teaming up on the arrangements, in a set of bass-heavy, mostly instrumental tracks that groove hard like the best early work by Zapp! There's a great jazzy groove to the record – with loads of tasty keyboards, and less of the slapp bass funk that could sometimes ruin other efforts like this. Titles include "Love Munch", "Hyper Space", "Freak to Freak", "Body Shop", and "We Do It All Day Long". LP, Vinyl record album

New DeodatoNight Cruiser ... LP
Warner, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A key record in Deodato's move from funky jazz in the 70s to modern soul in the 80s – and one that showcases the best of his talents in both genres! The approach here is more tightly arranged and produced than that of his earlier CTI sides – but in a mode that's still plenty nice to our ears – as Deodato's uncanny sense of rhythm and timing is still very firmly in place, making the set way way more than just a smooth jazz album – and pushing it strongly into the realm of soulful spacey fusion! There's some really great tracks on the set – like the amazing "Skatin", a sweet keyboard number that's a perfect roller skating jam (in case you couldn't guess from the title) – plus "Love Magic", "Uncle Funk", "East Side Strut", and "Night Cruiser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a gold promo stamp on the back.)

New James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was taken up around the world, and which still packs a pretty hard punch today! The album's filled with other excellent cuts – like the tasty funk number "Lickin' Stick", with some rocket-driven guitar, and the great instrumental "Shades of Brown". Other titles include "Goodbye My Love (parts 1&2)", "Let Them Talk", "I Love You", and "I Guess I'll Have To Cry Cry Cry". LP, Vinyl record album

George DukeAura Will Prevail ... LP
MPS, 1975. Very Good+ ... $13.99
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help from an array of great singers and players from the west coast scene. Duke's still stretching out plenty on keyboards – but never in a too-jamming, too-indulgent way – always sensitive enough to never mess up the groove, and always with a sense of space and timing that never showed up this well in his later records. Players include Airto on percussion, Alphonso Johnson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Duke himself on more keyboards than we could ever hope to list here! Vocals are by Sylvia St James, Gee Janzen, and Kathy Woehrle – as well as Duke himself – and titles include "Foosh", "For Love", "Uncle Remus", "Fools", "The Aura", "Enchinda's Arf", "Floop De Loop", and "Dawn".

New York CityI'm Doin' Fine Now ... LP
Chelsea, 1972. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Man, that east coast harmony sound couldn't miss in the 70s – as proven by the huge AM radio success of New York City! The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them up with production by Thom Bell, and backing from the Sigma Sound Studios, they created an unstoppable sound that was a perfect pop peddling of the harmony group sound. This album was their biggest – and it includes the classic "I'm Doin' Fine Now", plus lots of other nice tracks like "Hang Your Head In Shame", "Quick, Fast, In A Hurry", "Uncle James", and "Reach Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a radio station tracklist sticker.)

New Zoot Money's Big Roll BandBig Time Operators – The Singles 1964 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Wah Wah (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Slammin soul from Zoot Money – one of the hottest acts going on the mid 60s London scene, and an artist whose work was awash in styles borrowed from American R&B and soul jazz! Zoot's work of the time was a key force in opening the door to more soul-based sounds in the UK – and although others always credit the Rolling Stones with bringing blues to Britain, we've always been much more partial to the jazz-based styles of Zoot Money and others of the beat group generation – whose work helped transform sounds tremendously, and allow a shift towards more progressive fusions in years to come! The vibe on most of these tracks borrows heavily from James Brown, Ray Charles, and other bigger American soul acts – but there's also plenty of smoking Hammond and deeply-blown tenor on most tracks too, furthering the jazzier side of Money's sound. The set features all of Zoot's important singles, both a and b-sides – and titles incude "The Uncle Willy", "Good", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Let's Run For Cover", "Self Discipline", "Zoot's Sermon", "Mound Moves", "Star Of The Show", "Jump Back", "It Should've Been Me", "Please Stay", and "Zoot's Suit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies – in a great cover that has that classic UK 60s back-flap style, with a bonus insert of notes and photos too!)

New VariousHarry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume 4 – Rhythmic Changes (200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. This 4th volume was never issued in the 50s – but finally saw the light of day as a collection in 2000 – still from older rare records, and still very much in the best spirit of the initial volumes. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this fourth volume features work by Jesse James, Monroe Brothers, Sister Clara Hudmon, Al Hopkins & The Buckle Busters, Uncle Dave Macon, Roosevelt Graves, The Carter Family, Arthur Smith Trio, Blue Sky Boys, Memphis Jug Band, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)
