Hifivers Play Raw Soul

CD (Item 601760) Hi Five (Germany), 2010 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 39

Lots of raw soul here, and plenty of deep funk too – but tied together in a vibe that almost goes deeper than usual for a European combo of this nature, thanks to some great imagination on the horn parts! The set begins with the excellent "Watusi", which almost has a spiritual jazz vibe – then rolls into some numbers with a tighter funk approach, and some occasional female vocals too – used in ways that are often very respectful of the instrumentation, and definitely lets it set the tone first. Titles include "Thru To You", "Watusi", "Don't Step", "Got Myself Some Bucks", and "What You Lookin At". (Cover says "promotional copy" – but these are copies sold to us by the band – the closest to a physical release of this digital album.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Daptone, 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy
Incredible funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – one of the hardest and heaviest groups in the deep funk underground – and one of the first, too – given that most of the work here pre-dates efforts by all the rest of the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! Long before there was even a ... CD

Inland Emperor

Damn great work from the Greyboy Allstars – a record that's deeper, hipper, and more rewarding than we ever remember from the group – a rich blend of jazz and funk, without any tricks or gimmicks at all! The playing of the members has really deepened a lot since the last album – ... CD

13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD

TNT Productions (Germany), Late 80s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2 CDs
A great collection of work from Grand Slam – a German funk combo who were serving up a classic take on American sounds long before the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! These guys are equally influenced by James Brown and George Clinton – especially the latter, given the bass-heavy ... CD

Killer Crocodile
Kronos (Austria), 1989. New Copy
A killer croc has never sounded so spooky – thanks to great soundtrack work from Riz Ortolani! Ortolani's a name that you probably know best from famous global film success of the 60s – but by the time of this late 80s album, he's really matured nicely – and has a way with dark ... CD

Killer work from one of the funkiest leaders on the Chicago scene – the mighty mighty Willie Henderson, force behind some of the city's greatest soul tracks and funky 45s! This album's like a stack of lost funky nuggets laid back to back – with lots and lots of bass-heavy grooving from ... CD
