Arizona funk from George Bowman and his Memphis Soul – recorded at Phoenix's Audio Recorders studio in the late 60s – completely unreleased until now by Numero! "Don't Down Me People" is purely funky on a couple levels, most notably via the JB-schooled vocals by guitarist/singer/songwriter Mr. Bowman, along with some horn blasts and staggering drums. Those drums purportedly come courtesy of Rodney Brown of Dyke & The Blazers, which certainly makes some sense. The guitar dynamic is what really stands out, though – the riff is unshakable!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Can Remember/Standing On The Outside
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The bump here is a gentle one – a cool slow funk start to a track that turns out to be just the kind of mellow harmony number we love so much! The flipside's equally great – and both cuts have a feel that reminds us of those east coast groups who could be hard and sweet at the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Messed up funky soul from the Chicago scene – a beautiful package of rare singles from Little Ed & The Soundmasters!

Numero, Late 60s. New Copy

Nothin But A Party – but what a party it is! The track's a non-stop groover that rolls like a train out of control – drums chasing bass chasing horns all over the place – as the track fast-riffs out a groove that's amazingly tight for the speed at which it's taken! The group ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy
Very spacey funk from Lucky Brown – a mixture of slow-stepping bass, muddy drums, and some very cool keyboard bits – all sewn together with a surprisingly deep horn part on the top! There's a nicely percolating feel to the rhythms, but they sit back nicely in the mix and let the other ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
