Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from a Bay Area legend – and an EP that features 4 previously unreleased tracks by Darondo, none of which are on his previous reissue on Luv N Haight! The title track here is a nice loud mix of the snapping funky "Legs" – which is then presented in an even cooler ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An incredible collection of work from the vastly-overlooked Geater Davis – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! Geater Davis is a tremendous singer from the south – but one who barely ever got his due back in the 70s – even though these recordings for the tiny House ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A Long Island group with a very groovy sound – a blue-eyed take on funk and disco, with a great small combo sound that must have been great in the clubs! These guys slide into a groove with a tightness that matches their leisure suits in the photo on the back cover – and serve up these ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The incredible drums and Rhodes-heavy jazz dance album from composer Thom Janusz – made in collaboration with NYC dancer, choreographer and company leader Ronn Forella – possibly the funkest, best and hardest-to-find album ever released by the Hoctor label!

A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the ...

A landmark in rare Cali soul – and quite possibly the greatest moment ever from the legendary Mike James Kirkland!

A funky treasure from the 70s – a record that hardly made waves at the time, but which has lived on strongly for years – thanks to a great sample history and key interest from generations of groove diggers! Mighty Ryeders have a sound that's clearly influenced by Earth Wind & Fire ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary album from Chicago – recorded by a group with ties to Sun Ra, Phil Cohran, and Earth Wind & Fire! The set's got a sound that more than lives up to all those references – a vibe that's jazzy and soulful, yet often quite righteous too – imbued with the sort of ...

Sweet and jazzy pop from early 70s Brazil – a great little album that we'd rank with our favorites by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo! Arthur Verocai isn't nearly as well-known as those two, but he works in a similar territory – taking jazz, large arrangements, and nice touches of electric ...

One of the earliest – and one of the hardest! – compilations on Luv N Haight.
