If there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's that soul music can come from anywhere – as you'll hear in this amazing collection of grooves from the Spanish scene of the late 60s and early 70s! The artists here take plenty of inspiration from American artists of the 60s – not just mainstream soul, but some earlier strands of R&B, bits of nascent funk, and even some grittier garagey touches too – all wrapped up into a really unique sort of sound – not just because of the Spanish language lyrics, but also because of the way these guys are grabbing what they want from our scene, and making it into a whole new groove in the process! And although this one's the third volume in the series, it may well be the best so far – really amazing music we might never have heard otherwise – with tracks that include "Ya Ves Ya Ves Ya Ves" by David Lara, "Beggar For Your Lovin" by The Explosion, "Mentirosa" by Los Kifers, "Africa" by Lone Star, "Arbol Sin Raiz" by Los Goya, "Wello Wello Wap" by Nico, "Sonando" by Los Mitos, "What Can I Do For You" by Canarios, "Superman" by Larry Wald, "Eh Tu Loca marabu" by Los Go Go, "Stop" by Nelo Costa, and "Un Poco De Carino" by Els 5 Xics.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Masterpiece is a big claim to make – but the cuts on this set may well live up to that claim – at least within the realm of early 80s soul music! Every track here is near-perfect in its approach – a lean summation of beats, keys, and snapping rhythms – often peppered with ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy

Numero, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
An incredible look at an obscure Detroit soul label – a tiny little company, but home to some really great funk and soul! The Big Mack label ran somewhat sporadically through the 60s and into the early 70s – but during that time, it managed to cut some incredible tunes with a really ... CD
Red Hot & Fela
Knitting Factory, 2013. New Copy
One of the hippest entries in the Red Hot series so far – a set of tracks dedicated to the legendary Fela Kuti – felled by AIDS after years of influential grooves – still being felt strongly by the rich array of artists collected in the set! Most tracks are contemporary, but ... CD
