Grits & Soul

LP (Item 4326) Smash, Late 60s — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Reissue of one of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop stuff. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a lot of time to stretch out and get really groovy. Tracks include: "Grits", "There", "Wee Wee", and "Mister Hip". Very groovy.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Popcorn
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous turning point in the career of James Brown – and an album that points the way strongly to the even deeper funk of the 70s! The album's a hard-wailing batch of instrumental tracks played by the legendary James Brown Band of the late 60s – the pre-JBs ensemble that's gone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mind Of Gil Scott-Heron
Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A great little live album – one that's quite different than Gil Scott-Heron's double-length set for Arista – and a set that serves as a key bridge between his early protest work and his emerging vocal sensibility! The set features a fair bit of longer spoken passages – but unlike ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kedzie, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really great chapter in the long and funky history of the musicians that also played in Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Cane & Abel – and a cool little set that may be one of the best records to ever come from the collective! The players work here as Ice – and come across like some ... LP, Vinyl record album

ARC, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A very hip tribute to Otis Redding – one that has The Majestics hitting hard in an instrumental mode that's almost like some of the Mar-Keys or Bar-Kays work on Stax from the mid 60s – tight drums on the bottom, Hammond and guitar grooving in the middle, and some occasional horns ...

Polydor, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Subtitled "Live At the Apollo Vol 3", but waaay better than any of the earlier volumes, this monster 2LP live set has James and the JB's wailing away in a freewheeling live set of hard hard hard funky grooves. Excellent work by the band, and a great way to see how sharp they were out of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earl Of Funk
SOUL, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Fierce funky instrumentals from Motown keyboardist Earl Van Dyke – a set that's overflowing with great original tracks, plus some sweet funky covers too! The style here is quite different than Earl's previous work – and quite different from most of Motown too – with a hard-edged ... LP, Vinyl record album

People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album – quite possibly our favorite record by the JBs, ever! The set starts with a wonderful conversational bit – rapping and musing on the idea of "Damn Right, I Am Somebody" – showing the group in a political and righteous mode for the first time ever. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trouble Man
Tamla, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Timmion (Finland), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Brilliant soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a full set of work by vocalist Little Ann, issued here for the first time ever! You might recognize Ann's name from her appearance on a few of the Ace/Kent Records issues of material by Detroit producer Dave Hamilton over the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzman (UK), 1978. New Copy
Wanted live by a million girls – and by a fair bit of crate-diggers too – given the rarity of this 70s soul set! The album's an obscure gem from a group with a really warm sort of sound – a bit modern soul mixed with boogie, and produced at a surprisingly strong level for such an ... LP, Vinyl record album
