4.80 13

One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 22 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What. CD version includes 2 bonus cuts too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

This series is fast becoming one of our favorite collections of 70s soul ever – and it's got a groove that's unlike anything else! The Planter's Club sound is one that's laidback, yet funky – sophisticated and smooth, yet also totally righteous – a great space before the sound of ... CD

Very Best Of Booker T & The MGs
Rhino/Stax, 1960s. Used
What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find! Book's organ is the sound of a generation, and Steve Cropper's sinister vamping on guitar gives even the poppier tracks a hard edge that still ... CD

Butterfly
Columbia (Japan), 1979. Used
A great album of soulful jazzy tracks from Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai – with keyboards from Herbie Hancock and Webster Lewis – incredible and unjustly overlooked! Kimiko sings in English, and the record's got a nice smooth fusion groove with funky moments, post Headhunters. It's ... CD
