Wild MagnoliasThey Call Us Wild ... CD
Barclay/Polygram (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
The obscure 2nd album by The Wild Magnolias – much harder to find than the group's first US LP! The sound here is similar to their debut – a Meters-driven approach to New Orleans funk, served up in a catchy blend of tight rhythms, raspy vocals, and some well-chosen keyboard bits that give the tunes a slightly electric funk sound. The Turbington Brothers are helping out the group a heck of a lot on sax and keyboards – and the album's got a sinister groove that's very much in the best New Orleans funk tradition, yet without falling into any of the traps of cliché! Titles include "Injuns Here We Come", "Fire Water", "New Suit", "We're Gonna Party", "New Kinda Groove", "Ho Na Nae", "Jumalaka Boom Boom", and "Ah Anka Ting Tang Boo Shanka Boo". CD

New Wild MagnoliasWild Magnolias ... LP
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nicely done reissue of this classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including "Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield" – both the source of more than a few samples over the years. With nice sweet keyboards by Willie Tee, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you'll be hard pressed to beat! LP, Vinyl record album

A searing entry into the Mojo Club series – and one that really shows the way the compilations have evolved over the years!

New VariousSaturday Night Fish Fry – New Orleans Funk And Soul ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second set of rare New Orleans funk from Soul Jazz – and even better than the first! The package really digs back to include some rare numbers that move past the usual "best of New Orleans" set – hard funky tunes that all relish in that Crescent City groove that no other city, and no other scene has been able to duplicate over the years! There's some great classics on the set, plus some obscure funky 45 numbers we haven't seen in years – all of which work together perfectly to give you the true feeling of the New Orleans sound! Titles include "Mean Man" by Betty Harris, "Pass The Hatchet" by Roger & The Gypsies, "Funky Soul" by David Batiste, "Where Is Love" by Eldridge Holmes, "Hung Up" by Salt, "The Thang (part 2)" by Eddie Bo, "Soul Soul Soul" by Wild Magnolias, "Soul Train" by Bobby & The Heavyweights, "Hump Back" by Eldridge Holmes, "Cold Bear" by The Gaturs, "Roll Call" by Oliver Morgan, and "I Can't Help It" by Smokey Johnson.
