Go Go galore – a massive compilation of Chocolate City grooves – some of the best funky numbers from the DC scene of the 80s – a unique strech when the nation's capital was cooking up some mighty heavy grooves! Although recorded in the 80s, these tracks really preserve a 70s sort of funky sound – and in a way, the Go Go scene was kind of a refuge for all the great live funk energy of the 70s – especially the larger ensemble groups, like those in the P-Funk universe! Tracks are nice and long, filled with great rhythms, and lots of nice live instrumentation – and some great call-response vocals that are a bit like old school hip hop too. Titles include "Welcome To The Go Go" by Class Band, "Feel It" by The Mighty Peacemakers, "Somebody's Ringing That Doorbell" by EU, "You Can Dance" by Davis Pinckney Project, "Virginia Gone Go Go" by Code Red, "Skunk Funk Go Go" by Dr Skunk Funk, "Who Comes To Boogie" by Little Benny & The Masters, and "DC Groove" by Static Disruptors. 24 tracks in all – way more than any other set of this nature we've seen!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold
A great criss-crossing of modes at the end of the 60s – music that has roots in country, but which comes off with plenty of funk and soul as well – in styles that were burning strong from LA on eastward, all the way across the south at the time! Some of the grooves here might fall into ... CD

Brent/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Superb soul, indeed – a heady batch of work from the important Brent label in the 60s – including a fair bit of previously unissued tunes! Brent was a bit different than some of the 60s indie soul labels – in that they didn't just pull from their local scene, but culled material ... CD

BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy
A different groove than usual from the mighty Snowboy – not the Latin you may know from his own records, or the funk you'll find on his other compilations – but instead a smoking batch of 60s soul, with a really wonderful batch of well-chosen cuts throughout! The album's a counterpart ... CD
