Some of the best material we've ever heard from Andre Williams' heady 60s funk days – including some tracks that were initially released as singles on the tiny Duo label in Chicago, plus a bunch more that have never been reissued at all! In the setting for the sides, Andre's working at his hardest and heaviest – really keeping things raw and hard throughout, even on the numbers that feature vocals. There's a number of really great instrumentals on the album – tunes that have the rough, ready, and nicely messed up approach of some of Andre's best Chess work of the time – and which are a seminal bridge between the soul instrumental style of the 60s, and the heavier funk of the 70s! Titles include "Pass The Biscuits 67", "Andre's Jam", "Andre's Fender Rhodes Groove", "Thunder Thighs", "Red Beans (aka Bo Hog Stomp)", "Andre's Thang", and "Daniel Boone" by Andre Williams – plus Williams numbers with other artists that include "Can You Deal With That" by Jo Ann Garrett, "If I Didn't Love You" by The Profiles, "Baby Baby Oh Baby" by Jimmy Ed Trio, and "I'm The Rock" by The Velvet Hammer. 16 tracks in all – 4 more than the vinyl version.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Funky Delicacies, 1969/Early 70s. New Copy

Night Train International/Tuff City, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Sweet 70s funk from drummer James Black! The tunes were recorded in New Orleans, but have a bass-heavy groove that sounds a lot more like New York funk of the early 70s – tightly grooving with lots of rhythmic interplay, and a nice dose of spacey soul! About half the cuts have vocals – ... CD

Tabu (UK), 1976. New Copy
One of the few full albums ever cut by the great Sharon Ridley – a hell of a great singer from the east coast scene, and one with the fullness of the best club divas of the time – but an approach that goes way way deeper overall! There's a sexy slink to the album that echoes Ridley's ... CD

Tabu (UK), 1981. New Copy
80s grooving from Woods Empire – a short-lived group, but one with a great talent for balancing catchy lyrics and tight grooves with a slightly hipper sensibility! The group's a quintet with Tommy Woods in the lead, supported by his four sisters on vocals – almost a family-style ... CD

Dylan's Gospel
Ode/Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy
A really amazing project – and a totally righteous little record – a set of songs all penned by Bob Dylan in the 60s, sung by a hip spiritual choir that includes performances from soul singers Clydie King, Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Gloria Jones! The mix of soul and gospel here is ... CD

Win Or Lose/Atlantic (UK), 1972. New Copy
A landmark album – one of the greatest harmony soul albums of the early 70s! The title cut is one you'll know instantly – as "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" is one of those soul classics that never gets old – and the rest of the album's equally great, with a sublime ... CD

Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy

MCA, 1974. New Copy
Sure, it was a hit – but it's also an excellent batch of jazzy soul, sung by one of the 70's greatest voices, backed by a sweet mellow vibe that's still influencing hip hoppers today. Includes the incredible track "Stop On By", plus the instrumental "Rufusized", "I'm ... CD
