CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Not just cool jazz – despite what the title might say – and instead a whole host of soulful jazzy styles from the late 50s and early 60s – pulled forth from the kind of singles that once boomed from backroom jukeboxes in taverns on the south side of town! The collection is great ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Muse/Pho, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
The title's a hokey one, but the album's surprisingly great – a hip batch of jazz and funk numbers from the Muse Records catalog, and one that goes way past the dated language on the cover! Most of the tracks here are from the 70s, and they really show the depth of Muse's groove at the time ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Normal (Germany), 1970s. New Copy
A legendary collection of electronic grooves – one that takes off from the Perry-Kingsley generation, into groovy new territory! Most of the cuts here are from sound library sources – KPM, Selected Sound, and Sonoton – and the numbers are short and catchy, but without the kind of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Muse/Pho, 1970s. New Copy
Way more than just a jazz funk revival – given that all of the tracks here are from the mighty Muse Records, one of the coolest companies going back in the 70s! The set does a great job of mixing straighter funk with some more righteous numbers – showing two key sides of the label's ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fania (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
One of the hippest reissues to come from the newly-invigorated Fania Records – a brilliant exploration of the sound of Latin Soul that broke hard in the New York scene at the end of the 60s! The package is equally heavy on the "soul" as it is on the "Latin" – so ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Amazing grooves from a completely unlike source – Wales! With a strange language and a windswept location, one would hardly imagine the Welsh groove of the 70s to be anything of note – but it turns out that the records coming out on the Sain label were even more mindblowing than some ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
Fantastic funk from the Belgian scene of the 70s – a really mad mix of sounds and styles, and a really revelatory set overall! Few people might use the words "Belgium" and "funk" in the same sentence – but that may well change after this sweet set gets a few spins ... CD

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover)
Funky blues galore – not the kind of sad, weepy blues of the old days – but the kind of gritty grooves that really broke big during the 60s and 70s funky generation! Most numbers here mix older blues elements with sharp snapping drums and tight rolling basslines – a sweet fusion ... CD

Deep Jazz Trip
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
Groovy, moddish, magnificent and sunny girl pop from The Land Of The Rising Sun – pummeling drums, jumping arrangements and groovy vocals from the mid-to-late 60s Japanese scene! This is fantastic stuff, any kitch or novelty appeal you might be expecting is kind of muted by the exceptional ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prestige/BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy
Really classic jazz grooves from the vaults of Prestige Records – the kind of cuts that first broke big on the London scene of the 80s, at a time when diggers were setting fire to the rare groove scene too! The cuts here are proof that some of the best work doesn't need to come from ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder- ... CD

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Our favorite kind of funk is Super Funk – and this fab entry to the long-running series definitely keeps up the groove!

Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP

Soundsational (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great! Schema groover Gerardo Frisina serves up a hand-picked batch of 16 tunes, mostly classic numbers from the late 60s ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
Way more than just another collection of 70s disco – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really gone all-out for this one, and turned up a range of tremendous cuts from the underground! None of these tracks were disco hits at the time, and instead they're the sort of numbers that only bubbled far ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner (Australia), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
A smooth set of grooves from the 70s – just the kind of cool compressed pop that used to fill the 70s AM radio airwaves when we were kids – and which sounds even better in a hip compilation like this! The package doesn't go for easy hits – and instead digs deep into the treasure ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner (Australia), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD

Funky Delicacies, 1970s. New Copy

Born Bad (France), Early 70s. New Copy
Seminal sounds from the Parisian jazz community of the early 70s – a scene that had as much late 60s revolutionary energy as the American one – and which steps forth here in a beautiful blend of righteous themes and really far-reaching styles! The politics of the set are obvious from ... CD
