Mask Man & The Agents — One Eye Open (plus bonus tracks) ... CD 11.99

An excellent bit of party funk – and a real precursor to musical party records of the 70s! Harmon Bethea is the "Mask Man", and he's working here with his Agents – a very popular live act at the time, with a mixture of raunchy grooves and blue humor, ala Doug Clark & The Hot Nuts, but perhaps a bit cleaner. The classic track on this one is "One Eye Open", which has a nice drum part and a great groove – but the whole album's a great set of hard soul numbers that take off in kind of an indie Sam & Dave funky kind of way. Titles include "Love Bandito", "Roaches", "It's The Thing", "In a Crowded Station", and "Wigs". (Original pressing! Vinyl is great – cover has wear in one corner, and a bit of tape around the edges – but very clear tape.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Oh Girl
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good-
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solid Rock
Gordy, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
A masterful album of righteous trippy soul – recorded during the height of the Temptations' strong association with Norman Whitfield! The record has more than a few political/social conscience songs – like "Take A Look Around", "Stop The War Now", and "Superstar ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1974. Very Good
Hard funky soul from The New Birth – still sounding pretty raw at this point, and with that funky group ensemble feel that you'll hear on their best early albums! The tracks have plenty of nice guitar and clavinet work, and a shifting lead vocal approach that's pretty great on most cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freak In The Light Of The Moon
Red Greg, 1978. Very Good
Funky disco grooves from the team of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael – and one of the best-remembered projects from the P&P club years! There's a fair bit of moog in the mix here – used in the funky ways we've always loved in Adams' best work, to create some cool elements over ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1959. Very Good
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside!
