4.70 11

A legendary album from Chicago – recorded by a group with ties to Sun Ra, Phil Cohran, and Earth Wind & Fire! The set's got a sound that more than lives up to all those references – a vibe that's jazzy and soulful, yet often quite righteous too – imbued with the sort of spirit you'd guess from the group's name and the album's cover image – but often served up with a tight enough groove to make the set a favorite for fans of funk as well! There's a really special mix going on here – and unlike other ensembles of the time, The Pharoahs never go too far out – and instead really have the great sort of focus you'd hear even more strongly with Earth Wind & Fire. The lineup features Louis Satterfield on bass, Willie Woods on trombone, Don Myrick on saxes, Black Herman on drums, and Derf Reklaw on percussion and flute – and titles include "Ibo", "Somebody's Been Sleeping", "Damballa", "Freedom Road", "Great House", and "Black Enuff". (Great new reissue pressing – heavy tip-on cover, and bonus download too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
Excellent early work from The Staple Singers – one of their first recordings, and an all-gospel album that's drenched in the same sort of soul that you'd hear on their big hits of later years – a key influence on the sound of the secular 60s, heard here in its best original format! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

XL, 2014. New Copy
Plenty new here – a wealth of unheard tracks by Gil Scott-Heron – and some of the best music he recorded late in his life! The sides are all remakes of tracks from older 70s albums by Gil – but they're done in these stripped-down styles that usually just feature voice and guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy
An amazing chapter in the career of Lee Fields – an artist who's been moving our souls for decades, but who just keeps on growing in these really great ways! Unlike the fragile style of My World, or the heady southern soul of Faithful Man, Emma Jean's got this very different vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Our favorite kind of funk is Super Funk – and this fab entry to the long-running series definitely keeps up the groove! As before, there's plenty of rare tracks here – most pulled from obscure singles of late 60s/early 70s vintage – and some even from rare studio tapes that were ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laurence Family, 2014. New Copy 2LP & 7" Gatefold
Searing duets between reedman Ken Vandermark and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love – two players who've worked together often on both sides of the Atlantic, and really know each others' strengths! Vandermark plays tenor, baritone, and some especially nice b flat clarinet – and Paal handles ... LP, Vinyl record album
