Raw Soul ExpressRaw Soul Express ... LP
Cat, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster of a rare funk album – recorded by a tight little combo who should have been huge! Raw Soul Express have a touch of jazz in their playing – coming off here with a sound that reminds us of Wood Brass & Steel, and a rare few other funk acts of the time who knew how to do more than just hit a heavy drum and pluck a noisy bass – really going beyond the usual to come up with a groove that's wonderfully crafted throughout – and way way more than just the sum of its parts! Not that the band is slick or too polished, though – because they definitely earn the "raw" in their name with some sharp edges on the instrumentation – a sharp sense of power that really helps the whole thing cook. Titles include "RSE", "Burn The Candle", "Music Meditation", "Right On", and "Emergency". LP, Vinyl record album

RimshotsDown To Earth (original cover) ... LP
Stang, 1976. Very Good- ... $24.99
Sweetly stepping funk from The Rimshots – here moving from their rawer early sound into a tighter mode that was much more in keeping with the Philly scene of the time! The set's got a really full ensemble group feel – similar to other All Platinum classics by Brand New Funk and Wood Brass & Steel – a style that might be called disco at times, but which has a more laidback approach, and a more organic funk-based sound at its core. There's some great tripped-out guitars on a few cuts – stepping over the grooves with a chromatic sound that reminds us a bit of The Spirit Of Atlanta – and the best numbers burn with a rolling groove that would make the Rhythm Makers proud! Tracks include "Groove Bus", "Do what You Feel", "Walter's Inspiration", "Now Is the Time", and the group's cover of "7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (Blow Your Whistle)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a split top seam, splitting on the other seams, light stains, a bit of pen, and a spot of stuck-on paper on the back. Label has some pen.)

Spirit Of AtlantaBurning Of Atlanta ... CD
Buddah, 1973. Used ... $28.99
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! CD

Young BrassRhythm & Brass ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... $11.99
One of the best examples of a very cool 60s sub-genre – albums of soul tracks played by a "fake" studio group, which probably included some pretty great players that were working under anonymous conditions because of contract limitations! Sammy Lowe handled most of hte arrangements – and the tracks are a mix of 60's soul hits on Stax and Atlantic, with titles like "Knock On Wood", "I Thank You", "Soul Finger", "Respect", and "Soul Man" done up in choppy band arrangements, with some added guitar and piano to fill the whole thing out. LP, Vinyl record album

New Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or abstract the originals past the point of recognition – this one maintains the sense of space, time, and rhythm that Herb first brought to his work in the 60s, while also updating the tunes with a 21st Century aesthetic. Remixers include Medeski Martin & Wood, Mocean Worker, Thievery Corporation, John King (Dust Brothers), and Anthony Marinelli – and titles include "Whipped Cream", "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Peanuts", "Love Potion #9", and "Butterball".

New VariousJazz Club – From Jamaica With Jazz ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more far-reaching compilations in the Jazz Club series – reggae covers by jazz mainstays and more from late 60s onward, with a focus on great stuff from the 70s! All of the material was culled from the vast Universal vaults – and it's a pretty sweet set of jazzy reggae and reggae jazz, from artists as diverse as Ernest Ranglin, Bernard Pretty Purdie, The Skatalites, Bill Fraser, Deodato and Medeski, Martin & Wood! 14 tracks in all: "54-46 – (Was My Number)" by Ernest Ranglin, "Jammin'" by Monty Alexander, "I Can See Clearly Now" by Junior Mance, "Natty Never Get Weary" by Dean Fraser, "Rock Fort Rock" by Skatalites, "Montego Bay" by Pretty Purdie, "I Shot The Sheriff" by Deodato, "Walking On Sunshine" by Bill Summers, "Pressure Drop" by Brass Fraser and more.

New JJ Band (El Chicles & Chakachas)JJ Band ... CD
Polydor/Sonorama (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible funk, soul, jazz, post psychedelia and funk rock from the JJ Band – recorded in Brussels and featuring core players who were also integral members of Chakachas & El Chicles! The JJ Band find a hard grooving style steeped in horns, with heavy drums, bass and percussion, fuzzy guitar, and group vocals that range from psych styled group singing and soaring, kind of blue eyed soul. It's a mix of originals and tripped out cover tunes – ranging from walloping funk and funk rock, to some more laidback styles, but most of the tunes have pretty punchy sound. Totally great, and all to rare stuff! Titles include "Love In Them There Hills", "Now I've Found Out", "Leaving You", a fantastic, brass funk & psych jazz take on "Norwegian Wood", "Bip Bip", "To Love Somebody" and more. Also includes 2 bonus tracks recorded earlier and not on the original Polydor version, which was only released in Belgium and Canada: "Cousins Jack" and "Nicky's At The PC". CD

New Magnus BrooSwedish Wood ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Swedish wood, with plenty of brass – thanks to bold, imaginative work as a leader from trumpeter Magnus Broo – easily one of the most important voices on his instrument working today! The group is a beautifully tight quartet – and Broo's trumpet gains plenty from the equally bold basslines of Torbjorn Zetterberg – a player whose name may not be familiar to American audiences, but one who always seems to set a special sort of fire whenever he joins a session! There's a pulsating grace from Zetterberg that really gets things going – maybe the "wood" promised in the title, given the richness of its tone – which Magnus matches with this beautifully blown mix of soul and soaring, almost in a legacy of Woody Shaw or some of his generation. And the group also features added bass from Joe Williamson – making for a twin bottom-up groove that reminds us of similar sessions from the 60s – punctuated nicely by the drums of Hakon Mjaset Johansen. Titles include "I Hear You", "Swedish Wood", "Oh What A Beautiful Day", "Acoustic Kitten", "Thoughts Are Things", and "New Weather". CD

New VariousStrange Games & Funky Things 5 Smoking 70s Soul & Rare Grooves – DJ Spinna & BBE Soundsystem ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest installments so far in this legendary series – an excellent back of laidback funky cuts – super-sweet stuff, with a great lowdown sort of groove! The rhythms here are all nice and mellow, but the cuts are still plenty funky – right at the right sort of pace to be the kind of older funk numbers that inspire the hip hop generation – usually with a different sort of sound than the 70s funk that was hitting the mainstream back in the day! Spinna's done a great job with the track selection here – proving that even if you're digging in familiar territory, picking the right cuts is still a hell of an art – and the CD version features one mixed disc, and one unmixed CD – with cuts that include "Family Tree" by Family Tree, "Get It Up For Love" by Ned Doheny, "Sweet Stuff" by Sylvia, "Capricorn Rising" by Richard Evans, "Motherland" by Sylvia St James, "Cameo" by Eddie Senay, "For The Love Of Money" by Philly Armada Orchestra, "Brazilian Skies" by Bill Summers, "Asafo Beesuon/Obaa Yaa Aye Me Bone" by CK Mann & His Carousel 7, "Hunt Up Wind" by Hiroshi Fukimura, "Always There" by Wood Brass & Steel, "War Is Coming" by War, "Hands Of Time" by Perfect Circle, and "I Ain't Got The Love" by The Ambassadors.

Bombay RoyaleIsland Of Dr Electrico ... CD
Hope Street (Australia), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
A pretty huge leap forward for The Bombay Royale – the Bollywood funk-inspired combo who bring some Indian charm to the fertile Australian funk scene – and a whole lot more! Funk-era Bollywood soundtracks are still a huge part of the what they do, but there's a whole lot more going on here – from lush strings, to spacey disco, to Blaxploitation and beyond – it's richly layered, and mighty impressive. It's also much more than a mere global cinematic funk pastiche – the songs themselves are exciting and stand strongly for their own merits. The dual male and female vocals are excellent, and the instrumentation is great, too – with sitar, tabla and other Eastern elements, some tripped out synth and keys, brass and heavy drums. Includes "Ankhiyan", "Wild Stallion Mountain", "Khubsoorat Bewafa", "Henna Henna", "Tere Bina", "Hooghly Night Patrol", "(Give Me Back My) Bunty Bunty", "Gyara 59", "The Bombay Twist", "The Island Of Dr Electrico", "Falcon's Landing" and "The River".

Ides Of MarchVehicle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
These guys will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it's always being used in some sort of car commercial (which must net these guys a lot of royalties!) – but which is usually mistaken by others for being the work of Blood Sweat & Tears! Like BST, Ides Of March have a really driving sound here – pushing forward with heavy drums, sharp bits of brass, and a great early jazz rock sound that's way better than most work by the competition in years to come! Tracks include "Vehicle", "Wooden Ships", "Home", "Bald Medusa", "One Woman Man", and "Symphony For Eleanor". CD also features four bonus tracks – "High On A Hillside", "Let Me Home Gently", "Melody", and the single version of "Vehicle". CD

Budd JohnsonBudd Johnson & The Four Brass Giants ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Good+ ... $9.99
Budd Johnson was one of those players from the old days who was continually drawing praise from younger and hipper musicians – crediting Budd with a tone and talent that was forever an inspiration to them. Case in point is this 1960 session, issued as part of the hip Cannonball Adderley Presents series on Riverside – one in which Budd is given free reign to arrange the albums tracks, coming up with a nice batch of originals and interesting tunes that show him to be a much more complex player than might be expected. The players include a four piece trumpet section with Nat Adderley, Clark Terry, Harry Edison, and Ray Nance – and rhythm is by Tommy Flanagan, Joe Benjamin, and Herb Lovelle. Tracks include "Blues For Lester", "All My Love", "Trinity River Bottom", and "Driftwood". LP, Vinyl record album

New Charlie ByrdBrazilian Byrd ... CD
Columbia, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Charlie Byrd gets some top-shelf treatment here – in a wonderful album of tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, all recorded with full backing arrangements, and sound quality that's a lot better than some of Byrd's previous albums! The setting has Charlie's acoustic guitar right up front in the mix – mic'ed so close you can really hear his work on the strings – while light brass, woodwind, and string backings dance nicely, and more quietly, behind him. There's a very Verve-like approach to the whole record – obviously a market that Columbia were trying to reach with this one – and the album's easily one of Charlie's strongest for the label from the 60s. Arrangements are both by Byrd and Tom Newsom – and titles include "Dindi", "Jazz N Samba", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Corcovado", "Amor E Paz", "Samba Do Aviao" and "Amor E Paz". CD also features a previously unreleased alternate take of "Engano" CD

New Wes MontgomeryGoin Out Of My Head ... LP
Verve, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of Wes Montgomery's grooviest albums on Verve – a set that features his smooth chromatic work on guitar set to lively arrangements from Oliver Nelson! Nelson gives the set more of a "punch" than some of Montgomery's other Verve records – and the style uses a tight brace of brass and woodwinds as the backdrop for Montgomery's moody solo work. The tracks have a nice edgey quality, but also maintain a smooth stepping quality as well – and Wes' tone, as always, is sublime! Titles include "Golden Earrings", "Twisted Blues", "O Morro", "Boss City", and "Naptown Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet batch of funky big band tracks – featuring a group led by Ernie Wilkins, and with work by players that include Hubert Laws, Chris Woods, Kenny Burrell, David Spinosa, Frank Owen, and Grady Tate! The rhythms are quite strong on the set – really kicking in with a lot of electric bass and a lot of punch – grooving hard with plenty of nice touches on organ and guitar. Tracks are mostly pretty hip covers, with titles that include "Everyday People", "Get Back", "Come Together", "Spinning Wheel", "Down On Me", "Journey To the Center Of The Mind", and "One".

New VariousDramatic Funk Themes Vol 3 – Roaring Rare Grooves, Action & Detective Breaks 1972 to 1983 ... CD
Show Up (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third and best volume yet in the the Dramatic Funk Themes series – featuring tightly spun action funk from great international sound libraries of the mid 70s to early 80s! The first entry featured funky sounds culled from the British Themes International Music Library and Vol 2 reached further to include great stuff from KPM, De Wolfe and other legendary music libraries. This one digs deeper still into the vaults of Music De Wolfe and KPM, plus Golden Ring, Omnimusic, Selected Sound and other sources – funky themes from Germany, France, UK and the US! It's funky all the way, but these thematic instrumentals flex out pretty broadly – from straight up funky drums, organ and guitar instros to suspenseful chase scene-ready rumblers, tense horn blasts, brass and woodwind textured groovers, clever riffs on disco and more! Great stuff from a series we hope will keep coming out with more! Includes "Nowhere To Run", by Leer Paul Leary, "Prototype" by Simon Haseley, "Contact" by Peter Reno, "Solid Funk" by Dave Patterson, "Staying Power" by Keith Mansfield, "Stuck In" by Danny Edwardson, "Disco King" by Barry Stoller, "Police Car" by Dave Richmond, "XY Patrol" by M Schoof/U Buschkotter and more. 20 tracks on the CD version.
