Badder Than Evil/Barbara Mason/New BirthGordon's War ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A brilliant funky soundtrack – with great work from a number of different artists! The Buddah soul stable came out in full force for this soundtrack, including Harvy Fuqua, The New Birth, Barbara Mason, and Horace Ott – as well as the little known group Badder Than Evil! They play on the great instrumental track "Hot Wheels", which is the chase theme in the film, and a great sample track! Also includes "Super Shine #9", sung by Sister Goose & the Ducklings, which is a very groovy, goofy, soulful number – plus the tracks "Child Of Tomorrow", "Harlem Dreams", "Child Of Tomorrow", and "Come On & Dream Some Paradise".

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy .... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

Edwin StarrWar & Peace ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $19.99
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before – not only on the righteous tunes, like the classic title track – but also on some of the warmer ones too, which showcase a new adult style of singing we might not have expected a few years before! Unlike other Motown efforts of this level, there doesn't seem to be any core arranger and producer – which means that Edwin himself did an even greater job of pulling the whole thing together – a great run of tracks that includes the classic "War (What Is It Good For)", a killer version of "California Soul", one of the best Motown-penned tracks from the time – and the tracks "Time", "I Just Wanted To Cry", "All Around The World", "At Last I Found A Love", "I Can't Replace My Old Love", and "She Should Have Been Home".

New WarLove Is All Around ... LP
ABC, 1969/1976. Very Good .... $3.99
A selection of tracks culled from the days when War were working with Eric Burdon – during the years 1969 and 1970, when the ex-Animal tried to show the world that he actually had some real soul cred, and hooked up with this hip funky combo from LA to lay down his groove. The tracks are very much in the vein of Burdon's best early stuff with the group – and the album includes two funky rock workouts, versions of "Paint It Black" and "Day In The Life" that both run for a very long time. Other tracks include "Love Is All Around", "Magic Mountain", and "Home Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

WarWorld Is A Ghetto ... CD
United Artists/Rhino, 1972. Used .... $4.99
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". CD

Not sure if this record will stop the spread of global conflict, but it's more than groovy enough to make us drop what we're doing and trip out with the grooves! As with other Wareika projects, the sound here is plenty dubby – lots of influences from older Kingston and London records, but also often given a uniquely earthy twist too – percussion that's a lot rootsier than you'd hear on any reggae record, and some wicked trombone lines that snake in and out of the grooves. Titles include "No More War", "Free The People", "Chant Rasta", and "Universe In Crisis". LP, Vinyl record album

New Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... LP
Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter! Though you might not know it from some of the bitter rebukes Scratch later laid to wax against him, Romeo was clearly his favorite son when it came to vocalists, and got the prodigal treatment when it came to the choice of rhythms to voice.

A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". CD

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisRoma Violenta ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy .... $14.99
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo funk approach to scoring for a cop film, but done with the penchant for isolated focus on a key instrument that makes Italian soundtracks so great. There's no full horns nor funky orchestrations – and in their place are stepping bass bits, lightly dancing keyboards, and plenty of guitar parts – some jamming, some nicely spacey with a really eerie feel! The sound is great – never as cheesy as other Italian work from the mid to late 70s – and there's a grittier feel here than you'd expect, one that really keeps things interesting. CD features note in English and Italian, and a total of 23 tracks that include "The Reason Of A Just War", "The Punitive Justice", "The Other Face", "Undercover Investigation", "Gangster Story", "Casa Di Muda", and "Chicca".

East Of UndergroundEast Of Underground ... CD
Wax Poetics, 1971. Used .... $9.99
Gritty funk from East Of Underground – an uber-obscure LP recorded in 1971 by a group of US Army serviceman at the Armed Forces Network studios in Frankfurt, Germany – originally used as a recruiting tool during the Vietnam war! Given the strength of the set, we wouldn't be surprised if plenty of folks signed up for a tour of duty after hearing it – as the set cooks like some of the best American funk from the indie 45 world at the time. The production is nice and dark – with an echoey quality that makes us guess the album was a live recording – done by American servicemen with the feel of some backroom funk show from the Indy or Ohio scene of the 70s. Some of the tracks are familiar numbers from American hits – but redone here with a nicely gritty feel – and titles include the awesome medley "Bet'Ya Never Lose My Love California Dreamer" – plus "Higher", "Smiling Faces", "Hell Below", "Getting Over", "Popcorn/Santana", "I Love You", "Java Girl", and "Walk On By".

The set goes way past the previous East Of Underground reissue – to feature work by the groups Soap, Black Seeds, and Sound Trek – all wrapped up in a beautiful package that's as visually pleasing as the music is funky! The cuts here were all recorded by US Army servicemen during the height of the Vietnam war – as Army-issued albums designed to encourage recruitment (as if a few funky grooves could help offset the bad press the war was getting on TV!) But despite that odd origin, the music here is all pretty great – mostly covers of familiar tunes from the time, but recorded with a nicely gritty quality that's mighty nice – and which makes the overall feel of the records like digging into some lost small studio tapes – ala Numero! Now Again have done a great job of putting together the whole package, too – contributing a wealth of notes and photos, and really digging deep into the scene in which these unique records were created. Not only that, but the packaging also replicates the style of the original odd releases too! The set features a CD each of music by East Of Underground and Soap – plus another CD that brings together an unusual double LP by the groups Black Seeds and Sound Trek. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Kool & The Gang", "Walking In The Rain", "Backstabbers", "I Love Everything About You", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Go Outside In The Rain", "Black Magic Woman", "Hell Below", "Higher", "Popcorn/Santana", "Walk On By", "Java Girl", and "Get Together".

Now Again, 1971. New Copy 2 CDs Gatefold .... $18.99 19.98
A pair of great albums – brought together in one super-heavy package! First up is the legendary East Of Underground record – an uber-obscure LP recorded in 1971 by a group of US Army servicemen at the Armed Forces Network studios in Frankfurt, Germany – originally used as a recruiting tool during the Vietnam war! Given the strength of the set, we wouldn't be surprised if plenty of folks signed up for a tour of duty after hearing it – as the set cooks like some of the best American funk from the indie 45 world at the time. The production is nice and dark – with an echoey quality that makes us guess the album was a live recording – done by American servicemen with the feel of some backroom funk show from the Indy or Ohio scene of the 70s. Some of the tracks are familiar numbers from American hits – but redone here with a nicely gritty feel – and titles include the awesome medley "Bet'Ya Never Lose My Love California Dreamer" – plus "Higher", "Smiling Faces", "Hell Below", "Getting Over", "Popcorn/Santana", "I Love You", "Java Girl", and "Walk On By". The set also includes the Soap album – a very similar record with a mix of rock and soul, done with the same sort of US Army-endorsed approach – and some great raw production that really makes the album sparkle! Many tunes are covers, but they're played here with a gritty live energy – so that even the rock tunes feel a bit funky at times – given a really odd edge. Titles include weird versions of "Uncle Albert", "Ticket To Ride", "Southern Man", "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Get Together", and "Walk Away". CD

Kim FowleyInternational Heroes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $24.99
One of Kim Fowley's best records as an artist – and way up there in greatness with some of the best he produced for everyone else, too! '73's International Heroes was Kim's second album for Capitol Records, and unlike the strange, underground rock vibe on his first Capitol effort, this one has a far more ambitious production aesthetic. It's a cool mix of trashy and rambunctious rockers, with more adventurous acoustic instrumentation at times. Kim's vocals are as great here as they'd ever be – not nearly as gruff as on I'm Bad – and sweetened even more here by some groovy backing vocals. We REALLY love this record! Includes "International Heroes", "ESP Reader", "Ugly Stories About Rock Stars And The War", "I Hate You", "Born Dancer", "World Wide Love", "Dancing All Nite" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

FugsTenderness Junction ... LP
Reprise, 1967. Good+ .... $9.99
One of the most fully-formed albums from The Fugs – still quite hippy dippy, but with a focus that's sometimes missing in their other work! And despite the somewhat major label placement of the set, there's arguably even more power here than on the group's earlier indie sides – thanks to strong use of the best elements that make up the tunes. There's still a great mix of styles going on – from Buddist chanting, to sing-song poetry, to some countrified rock – and the album's got enough room for playful detours, but always snaps back into some stronger song-based modes. Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso both make guest appearances, and titles include "Exorcising The Evil Spirits From The Pentagon October 21, 1967", "War Song", "Dover Beach", "Turn On/Tune In/Drop Out", "Wet Dream", "Hare Krishna", and "Aphrodite Mass".

Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet bit of funk from 70s France – and a great batch of electric keyboard tunes from Jacky Giordano, with a sound that's in the mode of 70s soundtrack work by Lalo Schifrin! The album was originally issued in 1976 as a small-run sound library record, and it's a masterpiece of keyboard grooves – spare and dark, with a mixture of moody and moogy grooves that lie somewhere between the American sound of CTI and Kudu. All tracks are great, and the album's got a warm finish that gives it a deeply soulful feel – a quality level that's high enough that would have made it a hit, were it issued over here in the US at the time. Titles include "Terefic War", "The Big Mameluk", "Moving Grooving", "Devil's Train", "Sex Girl", "Blue Circuit", and "Tabla Minor". CD

Underrated later Airplane – issued at the time on their own Grunt label! Bark came out in '71, after the departure of co-founder Marty Balin, but despite that obviously important loss, there are some pretty cool positive changes in approach, even if it wasn't enough to keep the group flying for too much longer! For one, it's got some excellent violin by Papa John Creach on several tunes – and Slick and Kantor's vocals and songwriting are still in solid shape here. Titles include "When The Earth Moves Again", "Feel So Good", "Crazy Miranda", "Wild Turkey", "Law Man", "Think", "War Movie" and more. CD

John Robinson is a classic rap inspired mic fundamentalist, seemingly never at a loss for lyrics and he delivers here as strongly as always. Intachi's production is just as impressive – using tried-and-true blueprint style, with is own fresh, personal stamp. Includes "All Hail The Honorable", "Who Goes There" feat Hus and Skanks of Bankai Fam, "The Rap Shogun", "Life Itself", "Manga", "Indigo Child" with cuts by DJ Djaz, "War Spelled Backwards" feat Eloh Kush of Angelz INC, "Mystical Strings" and more – plus bonus remixes of standout tracks by Astronote, Phalo Pantoja, Venom and Azaia.

He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy .... $14.99
Killer funky reissue of this rare soundtrack by Don Julian & The Larks! You probably already know Don Julian's funky work from the Savage soundtrack, and this one's just as good – with even more cuts than the original, including a lot of tasty soul cuts and covers with a deep soulful sound. The plot of the film has Don and The Larks playing a cool little lounge funk band, caught up in sort of a mini gang war between 2 thugs who want to manage them. One of the thug's named "Shorty The Pimp", and his name provides Don with the funky title to the great theme of the film, which is a very tasty groover. Other tracks have the band covering other current soul hits, and playing some extra-dope instrumentals with a nice hard sound. Titles include "Schoolin & Foolin", "Vato's Brew", "Brother What It Is", "Super Slick", "Inner City Blues", "If There's A Hell Below", and "Message From A Black Man". On CD only! CD

Although we have to admit that we're mostly partial to Jon Lucien's early work for RCA, this collection does a good job of spanning his whole career, while still keeping the quality level high! Jon's voice never faltered in all the years of his recording work – and as this 17 track set will attest, the range of expression he had was incredible. The package features tunes from Jon's RCA albums, his Columbia recordings, and even one from his later obscure album from the 80s, issued on a small indie label. Titles include "Listen Love", "World Of Joy", "Esperanza", "The War Song", "Rashida", "Dindi", "Hello Like Before", "Laura", "Sweet Control", "Mother Nature's Son", "Laura", "Motherland", and "Luella".

Barbara MasonTransition ... CD
Buddah/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy .... $16.99
Transition is right – as the cover has Barbara floating above a Curtis Mayfield-ish scene of drugs, war, gambling, and Satan – a really righteous image that beautifully sums up the vibe of the record! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound in Philly – with excellent arrangements from Norman Harris, Richard Rome, and Bobby Eli – who all bring in a slight blacksploitation vibe to match the image on the cover – easily the funkiest setting that Barbara Mason ever had! But the real star here is the lady herself – who's pushed herself beyond the little girl soul themes of a few years before, to take on a host of societal issues with a surprisingly righteous vibe – mostly on tracks she penned herself. The song titles sum up lots of the energy of the record – and include "World in a Crisis", "Trigger Happy People", "The Devil is Busy", "Sunday Saint (Weekday Sinner)", "Half Sister Half Brother", and "Time Is Running Out". A real surprise from Barbara Mason – and a great one too! CD

The setting of the film is pre-World War I Austria, and it has a strong dramatic cast, so the elegance is quite befitting – but it's never stodgy or anything less than warm. The strings soar lightly for the most part, with some tenser dramatic moments, too. Very nice, classy work from the maestro.

There's some really beautiful melodies on the record – gentle themes that creep out of the darkness like tiny flowers, blossoming through short instrumental solos – before the broader washes of strings come back in, and fold them into the overall tapestry of sound. Some passages get slightly dramatic as the tension in the narrative increases – and titles include "Quasi Un Flamenco", "Repressione Seconda", "Melodia Dalla Zolfara", "Una Piazza Di Siviglia", and "Al Fronte".

The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to soul that really blows away most of the competition by showing that a heck of a lot can be done with just a little! Omar's vocals are very firmly in the lead – serving up positive, thoughtful lyrics that show why his work has always gone far beyond any mainstream cliches in R&B – and which continue to mark the man as one of the most powerful forces in the underground. The set's got guest work from Scratch Professor, Caron Wheeler, and a few others – but honestly, Omar's the Man who's really got us paying attention all the way through!

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". CD

Ubiquity, 2007. New Copy .... $12.99 16.98
A monstrous debut from one of the heaviest acts we've heard in years – LA's Orgone, easily one of the most up-and-coming funky combos around! Although Orgone share a bit with some of the leaner deep funk groups who've cropped up in the past decade or so, they've also got a sound that's a bit more advanced overall – sort of that second-generation approach to funk that hit the scene by the mid 70s, as some of the bigger funk acts like Black Heat or War moved out of the indie scene and really started to hit a wider audience! That doesn't mean that Orgone's commercial at all – because they've got a sound that's still as sharp-edged as any smaller group – but with a lineup that's quite large, they're able to encompass a very wide range of soulful styles – gritty 45 riffing, slinky Chicano-styled grooves, Afro Funk, tighter soul tracks, and lots lots more – all carried off with perfection throughout. The album feels like some lost masterpiece on Fantasy, or possibly some overlooked early 70s major label funk set on WEA or United Artists – and titles include "Who Knows Who", "I Get Lifted", "Funky Nassau", "Lone Ranger", "Prism Break", "Crabby Ali", "Duck & Cover", "Dialed Up", "Said & Done", "Hambone", "It's What You Do", "Do Your Thing", and "Sophisticated Honky".

A cool combat- themed country rock record by The Red Rippers – largely the work of songwriter and Vietnam veteran Lt. Edwin Bankston – and a pretty riveting obscurity from the early 80s private press vaults! The sounds range from breezy, Creedence-styled backdrops and 70s outlaw country inspired grooves, to more of a fuzzed out, slightly harder-edged feel – but it's the lyricism that really pushes Red Rippers into a different realm. It's full of war-wizened songs about forgotten soldiers, bloody jungle battles and other prideful and mournful tales from this veteran's point of view! The difference between the catchy, if quite raw tunefulness and the frank lyricism gives it a really dichotomous, intriguing feel!

New Max RomeoOpen The Iron Gate ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Near Mint- .... $16.99
A 1978 reissue of the great Revelation Time LP, part of a short lived but excellent series on United Artists. Nice renditions of some classic roots rock, informed by the cultural vibes that rocked Jamaica throughout the 70s and a sort of precursor to the landmark War Ina Babylon set, including "Open The Iron Gate", "Blood Of The Prophet", 'Warning Warning", "Three Blind Mice" and the classic "Revelation Time".

Brother John RydgrenSilhouette Segments/Cantana For New Life/Worlds Of Youth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy 2 CDs .... $21.99 25.99
Wild, psychedelic era material from the very hip Lutheran pastor Brother John Rydgren! He sports a smoky voice and a poetic, playful, almost comedic spoken word style – in a way that's very much reminiscent of Ken Nordine – as if Ken was a groovy Christian poet! The sound is fuzzy, tripped out psychedelic pop – and his mission seems to be to satirize the sounds and styles of the time as much as it is to spread the Good Word – but at the same time, he's fully embracing the psychedelic sounds! It's almost entirely spoken word on the vocal front – with some oddball choir backdrops and other, often female voices floating in and out from time to time – and pretty diverse instrumentation that often feels like he's vocalizing over some psych funk sound library grooves! Also like our man Nordine, Brother John was a radio personality – but he released some incredibly rare LPs – with '68's Silhouette Segments, '67's Cantata Of New Life and '66's World Of Youth anthologized here by Omni – along with some additional material and a nice little booklet. Incredibly cool stuff! Includes "Music To Watch Girls By", "The Happening", "An Offering Of Music", "Butterfly", "Great To Build Something", "The Air Terminal", the nearly half hour "Cantata Of New Life", "News (The Kite And The News)", "Forgiveness (The Boy Looking Natural)", "Baptism (Come To War)", "Martyrs" and more.

Rhoda ScottLive At The Club Saint-Germain ... CD
Barclay/EmArcy (France), 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from organist Rhoda Scott – a hip, double-length set recorded at the Club Saint Germain in Paris – often with a good deal of funk in the mix! Rhoda's working here in a slightly expanded version of her usual format – her own Hammond organ in the lead, plus drums from Cees Kranenburg and tenor sax from Leo Johnson – the last of which makes for a wonderful addition to the groove! Most tracks are quite long, and build with a good sense of energy – almost jamming at times, with the drums used much more heavily than on other Scott albums. And Johnson's sax is great too – bringing in a sharper edge that really deepens the soul, and helps show a side of Rhoda that wasn't always caught on record at the time. Titles include a killer 18-minute version of War's "Slipping Into Darkness", a funky take on "Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)", and the originals "Espoir", "Floor Lip", "Le Saint Germain", and "Nyugi-Nyugi".

Amedeo TommasiGrandangolo ... CD
Cenacolo (Italy), 1981. Used .... $14.99
Loads of great keyboards from Italian player Amedeo Tommasi – and a record that we'd rank right up there with electronic soundtrack classics from John Carpenter or Goblin! Most of the tracks are quite spare, and build up only from keyboards – using Tommasi's work on moog, Fender Rhodes, and other keys – and weaving them into a rich soundscape of shimmering patterns and unusual sounds! The best cuts are moogy, but still upbeat – and the whole album has a sense of blackness that really matches its cover. Titles include "Ultimo Atto", "Allarme Nucleare", "Distruzione Chimica", "La Strada Dei Giganti", "Space War", "Attacco Armato", and "Insidia Cosmica". CD

TRASE (Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble)Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 80s. New Copy .... $16.99
Never-heard sounds from this amazing UK duo – an early 80s outfit who went by the name of Tape Recorder & Synthesizer Ensemble – a very good choice, given the instrumentation on the set! Most of the music here is relatively spare, but surprisingly tuneful – kind of in a space between early Sheffield electronics and some of the catchier electro instrumental work of the mid 80s – often tweaked with experimental production and bits of tape, but usually just based around a guitar riff, a keyboard line, and a drum machine rhythm! Both musicians were in their teens at the time, and had no further aims of mainstream fame – but the record's easily as good as the best UK indie electronics on labels like Factory, Rough Trade, or Cherry Red at the time. Titles include "Sketch 1", "Harmonium", "Electronic Rock", "Talk To Me", "Unrequited Love", "We Are So Fragile", "This Life Of Yours", and "War Machine". CD

VakillWorst Fears Confirmed ... CD
Molemen, 2006. Used .... $6.99
The best tracks yet from Chicago's Vakill – backed that tight, true school hip hop production by Panik & Memo of the Molemen! Vakill's proving to be a tough lyricist with one of the sharpest pens in the Chi, and he has the gritty, hard charging delivery to bring the lines home. The stark, gritty production couldn't be be better backdrop. Tracks include "Worst Fears Confirmed", "Cold War", "Introducin'" feat Ras Kass, "When Was The Last Time", "Serpent & The Rainbow", "Monstaz Ink", "Farewell To The Game", "No Mercy", "The King Meets The Sickest" feat Royce Da 5'9, "Man Into Monster" feat Vizion, "Flow Fever" (produced by Chemo), "Acts Of Vengance" and more.

Wailing SoulsStranded ... LP
Greensleeves, 1984. New Copy (reissue).... $10.99 11.98
A nice later effort from the legendary Wailing Souls – and their last album for Greensleeves, before rebooting a couple years later! '84's Stranded is a pretty strong record, with those achingly soulful voices front and center, and with a modern sound that holds up quite well! Sly Dunbar is on electronic drums, with synth by Keith Sterling another solid modern touch – and titles include "Stranded In LA", "File For Your Machete", "Thinking", "Peace And Love Shall Reign", "Helmet Of Salvation", "War Deh Round A John Shop", "Eyes Of Love", "Sunrise Till Sunset", "The Best Is Yet To Come" and more.

Tyrone WashingtonRoots ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A wonderful bit of spiritual soul jazz! This sweet little record was recorded out of the same energy that produced Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark LP for Perception Records, and it's a strange session by Tyrone Washington – a young player from the Newark scene who'd previously cut a straighter album for Blue Note, but who was working here in kind of a messed-up grab bag of styles that fit well with the stoned-out approach of the Perception label. Hubert Eaves plays piano, Stafford James plays bass, Clifford Barconadhi is on drums, and the album's a mix of funk, modal jazz grooving, and a bit of outside activity. In a way, the album's earnestness reminds us of some of Roland Kirk's work from the same time – except that Tyrone's backing group is incredible, with a tight rhythmic sound that gets funky at just the right moments. Titles include "War Is Not For Men", "1980", "Submission", and "Spiritual Light Of The Universe". LP, Vinyl record album

Amy WinehouseBack To Black ... CD
Universal, 2006. Used .... $6.99
An incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than before! The instrumentation on here is really mindblowing – almost at a Motown level, with isolated instruments really crackling out from the fuller backings – all set to rhythms that snap and bounce, and are almost a bit funky at times. Credit is definitely due to producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi – but Amy's vocals are really tremendous too – classic, but really personal and fresh! Titles include "Rehab", "Just Friends", "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", "He Can Only Hold Her", "Some Unholy War", and "Me & Mr Jones". CD

Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street BandYou're So Beautiful ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good Gatefold .... $14.99
The last album recorded by Charles Wright with the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – and a set that's even more stretched out and trippy than their other albums! Gone are the tight short cuts of earlier days, and in their place are longer messed-up funky numbers that have more of a jamming party feel – tunes that let the whole group open up in a relaxed and soulful mode that must have been plenty great to see happening live in the studio! Charles sings in a style that mixes straighter soul with "crazy man" kind of lyrics – of the sort that he later sang on his own LPs – and the album features the wicked tune "Express Yourself II", a great follow-up to the first one, done in a more open-styled way, but still with the same hook and rhythm! Other tracks include "Just To Settle My Nerves", "Let's Make Love Not War", "What Can You Bring Me?", "Your Love", and "You're So Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

Robert WyattRadio Experiment Rome – February 1981 ... LP
Rai Trade (Italy), 1981. New Copy .... $22.99
A project that's essentially the genetic material of the aural art of the great Robert Wyatt – recorded by Wyatt in Rome in the early 80s for a radio program, where he was invited for a week to record the process of his work – and delivering it with fascinating, hallucinatory results! Wyatt is on vocals, piano, keys, jew's harp, percussion and kind of found sound atmospherics – making an involving, impressive, genuine piece of art where even some of the most creative of his peers might come out looking like a pompous arse. The man's a genius! Titles include "Opium War", "Heathens Have No Souls", "L'Albero Degli Zoccoli", "Holy War", "Born Again Cretin", "Prove Sparse" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Yaaba FunkMy Vote Dey Count ... CD
Sterns (UK), 2014. New Copy .... $16.99
London Afrobeat from Yaaba Funk – a group who definitely dig deep in the cross-cultural scene of their city! Yaaba Funk have an approach that recalls some of the better London work of this nature from years back – not just a rehash of older Nigerian modes, but a willingness to make the sounds mean something new, too – especially when they get very strong political motivation from the lyrics! Instrumentation is the usual guitar, saxes, and percussion – but some tracks also feature some sweet kalimba, and very inventive work on bass, which helps open up the sound. Titles include "Poor Man's Tale", "Ghana A to Z", "Volta Blues", "Black To White", "Political War", and "Gyae Me Na Mendwen". CD features a few bonus remixes too! CD
