Incredible material from the formative years of Cali soul great Mike James Kirkland – singles and previously unreleased tracks that he recorded with his group Mike & The Censations in the years leading up to his underground soul classic LPs Hang In There and Doin It Right! Mike & The Censations were often lumped in with doo wop groups in their day, given Mike's roots in doo wop and gospel – but what you'll actually hear here is a range of soulful styles that dabbles in nascent 70s group soul and a little bit of funk – with charismatic vocals from Mike and perfect group backup vocals by the Censations (spelled with a C-, so they wouldn't be confused with the Philly Sensations). A stunner from our friends at Luv & Haight/Ubiquity – still the greatest champions of the work of Mr. Kirkland! Disc 1 is The Complete Story Of Mike & The Censations: "Victim Of Circumstance" (Pts 1 & 2), "Don't Mess With Me", "There's Nothing I Can Do About It", "Be Mine Forever", "Don't Sell Your Soul", "Shopping For Love", "A Man Ain't Nothing But A Man", "I Need Your Lovin", "Baby What Are You Going To Do", "Split Personality" and more. The vinyl version includes more previously unreleased tracks on LP2 – exclusives to the limited edition vinyl version: "Feeling In My Heart", "I Need Your Love", "Strut On", "Love Is Back" and "Whirling Around".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burning Of Atlanta
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

What Is It
BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the best album ever from this fantastic funky combo! The band grooves hard and funky – with incredible drum work from Paul Stubblefield, tasty guitar from Walter Winston, and some famous funky flute and sax work from Gus Hawkins. Tracks on the album are rough and raw – ... LP, Vinyl record album
