LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 13

A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation! Titles include "Shifting Gears" by Johnny Hammond, "Mary Mary" by The Monkees, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "Africano" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "Super Sporm" by Captain Sky, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Funky President" by James Brown, "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Johnny The Fox" by Thin Lizzy, "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers, "The Clapping Song" by Shirley Ellis, and "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s!

BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP
A tight collection of uptempo funk and disco-driven soul tunes – with a selection that goes way past the usual dancefloor favorites!

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!

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
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- ...

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Killer funky stuff! Dean Rudland put together this tasty set of lost funk tracks from the many labels currently making up the BGP/Ace catalog – and the groove runs through 15 tracks of hard heavy soul, fuzzy funky instrumentals, and slammin groovy grooves. A few tracks on the set might be ... LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 1990s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold
Killer cuts from some of the most underground years of house music – that rich 90s stretch when there was some really excellent work coming out from a host of global labels – most of which never got the same sort of exposure as the first wave of house!

World Psychedelic Classics/Tropicalia In Furs, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fuzzed out treasure trove of rare Brazilian psychedelia – wild stuff that's in many ways akin to the freewheeling sounds of the Tropicalia movement, but not necessarily taking on the cultural and political weight of that movement – and more about the boundless spirit of psychedelia ...

Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard!
