CD


5.00 11

A lost bit of ensemble funk from the end of the 70s – served up in a mix of bass-heavy club and boogie styles! The group have a rolling groove that's a bit like some of the work by Instant Funk or other clubby funk acts – but the overall feel is a bit tighter and more small group-oriented, even though the end result is as tight and professional as anything coming out on some of the bigger labels at the time – making for a great mix of indie and mainstream funky club styles! Our favorite cuts may actually be the mellower ones – which have some great soul harmonies – but even the uptempo tracks are pretty nice, with a strong Philly-inspired sound overall – and titles include "Postcard Love Affair", "My Fantasy", "Push", "There You Go", "Fantasize", "I Judge The Funk", and "You're Always on My Mind".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Black Ice
HDM, Late 70s. New Copy
A heavy groover from Black Ice – an old school harmony act at the core, but working here in a sweet clubby mode for the 70s! The approach is quite similar to the best group soul coming from Philly at the time – with some wicked upbeat numbers that step along beautifully – not ... CD
Unity – Sing It Shout It
Kimsha/Boom Shot, 1976. New Copy
A mindblower – and the kind of record we only come across once in a blue moon! Tony Aiken & Future 2000 were an obscure mid 70s group from New York – all players skilled in the burgeoning club scene of the time, but who also had their roots in Caribbean music – coming ... CD
San Francisco Dues
Chess/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy
One of the weirdest Chuck Berry albums ever – and one of the greatest, too! The sound here is very different than the hard rockin Berry of the early days – and the record's got kind of a laidback, trippy, and slightly bluesy approach – one that has Chuck singing in these homey ... CD
Epic/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy
A landmark album in a landmark package – a set that takes this gem from Sly & The Family Stone, presses it up on a special hi-fidelity gold CD, then cradles the whole thing in special box with a heavy hardcover book with lots of new notes – and a fabric American flag sewn right onto ... CD
Ballinjack
Columbia/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy
Lost funk rock from Ballinjack – the rare self-titled set for Columbia that's arguably best remembered for being so massively sampled – but the group that deserves a more widely-credited legacy! The sound is a bit like Mandrill on the best cuts, with the band going hard on the funky ... CD
Ariola, 1976. New Copy
CD...$7.99 16.98
The rare disco soul LP from German chanteuse Gitta MacKay, aka Jackie Robinson – featuring the great single "Moving Like A Superstar" and the sample classic "Pussyfooter" – and a great set overall that should have made her a worldwide star! The album was released in ... CD
Miami
TK (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Cool compressed sounds from Miami – a group who are still plenty funky on this rare third album, but one who've also found a great way to serve up their groove as well! The combo's even sharper on the rhythms than ever before – and have a style that's a bit like that key evolution ... CD
Hypnotized
Loma/Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the greatest female singers on the east coast scene at the end of the 60s – heard here on a classic Warner Brothers set that includes some of her best-remembered tracks! At some level, the set's a prequel to Linda's later recordings for the Stang/All Platinum label – as it ... CD
Fortune/Tuff City, Mid 50s-Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
A treasure trove of early Andre Williams – cut for the Fortune label from 1955 to around 1960 – with some of his greatest and best known singles of the time, as well as some comparably rare gems! Andre's most legendary for the smoothly charismatic, streetwise R&B sound – and ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy
A tremendous collection of work from the great Betty Swann – a hell of a soul singer who'd recorded previously for the Money and Capitol Records, but who really hit her height on this string of 70s singles for Atlantic Records! Betty never cut a full album for the label, so this period is a ... CD
Safety Zone
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast ... CD
