Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 13

Massively funky work from the Mainstream Records catalog of the early 70s – some of the grittiest, most hard-hitting tracks recorded by the label at the time! Most of the tracks here are short, but pack plenty of punch – that rock-solid approach to jazz funk that Mainstream was putting down heavier than most other labels at the time – thanks to a top-shelf array of leaders, studio players, and arrangers in the mix! There's a number of tracks here that haven't been reissued as part of P-Vine's single album program on the label – making the compilation even more essential – and the 19 track album features over 75 minutes of music, more than enough to warrant the higher Japanese price. Titles include "Sweet Emma" by Don Burrows, "Mustang" by Sonny Red, "Red Clay" by Jack Wilkins, "Witch Doctor Bump" and "Boogie The Devil In" by The Chubukos, "Spinning Wheel" by Phoenix Authority, "Fire & Water" by Charles Kynard, "Family Affair" by Dave Hubbard, "Signifyin Gemini" by Lamont Johnson, "Freedom Jazz Dance" by Night Blooming Jazzmen, "Mother McCree" by Reggie Moore, "Let's Take The Long Way Home" by Arbee Stidham, and "Never Can Say Goodbye" by Johnny Coles.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A rare look at the soul music side of Mainstream Records – a label that's mostly known for its famous jazz fusion sides of the early 70s – but who also turned out a fair bit of great soul work as well! Most of the Mainstream soul tracks were only ever issued as 45s – making this ... CD

A second set of grooves from the Seattle scene – and a much-needed follow-up to the first Wheedles Groove compilation! This set picks up where the last one left off – still digging the funk and soul of the 70s, but also following the scene into clubby territory, modern soul, and boogie ... CD

Thought Of You
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy

Victor (Japan), 2014. New Copy
One of the coolest collections of contemporary soul we've ever heard – a wonderful batch of work in a laidback, cosmic sort of vibe! The music here resonates strongly with the 70s vintage you'll find in most of the other Free Soul compilations – but it's all relatively recent, and ... CD

Joy In Spite Of Everything
ECM, 2014. New Copy
The "joy" in the title is certainly well-placed – as the music here has a buoyant, ebullient quality that's unlike most we're used to hearing from the artists on the record – and from ECM in recent years! The group's led by pianist Stefano Bollini, whose light tones ring out ... CD
