A great, proper album from Germany's excellent funk combo The Mighty Mocambos – who've dropped many killer 45s as themselves and with pseudonyms, as well as backing London-based funky soul diva Gizelle Smith for a teriffic full length – and sounding as vital and exuberant as ever here! The Mighty Mocambos are dexterous musicians and adventurous funk spirits – showing love for classic hip hop funk in collaborations with Afrika Bambaataa and Zulu Nation legend Charlie Funk, aka Afrika Islam – plus singers Su Kramer and Carol Lacaze (who sings in French), on top of killer instrumentals. Includes "Calling The Shots", "Zulu Walk" and "Battle" with Afrika Bambaata, Charlie Funk & King Kamonzi, "The Sun Shines Tonight" feat Su Kramer, "Struggles And Triumph", "French Vanilla Skies", "Physique", "Peace Street", "The Next Message" and more.

Classic-styled funk from Alex Puddu – not only the greatest record we've heard from him so far, but a set that's definitely worthy of its "golden age" claim in the title! The music is all new, but it was done for a series of short Danish porno films from the 70s – and Puddu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wax Poetics, 2013. New Copy

Practice What You Preach
Daptone, 1993. New Copy
Deep deep funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – and a record cut at a time when all the world thought classic funk was dead! Apart from a few revivalist albums by older artists at the time, deep funk was plenty hard to come by at the start of the 90s – and often mis-recorded or badly mixed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Executive Suite 1
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a full-length set from Executive Suite – a Philly quartet who are probably best known for their singles in the 70s, but who really find a great way to open up here in the course of an expanded album! Some of the tracks are nice and long – done in a two-part style that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An insanely wonderful album! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, ...
