Spirit Of The Boogie

LP (Item 20922) De-Lite, 1975 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.50 11

Sure, this one's got "boogie" in the title – but don't let that scare you off! The album's carved in the same hard funky style as mid 70s hits like "Hollywood Swinging" or "Jungle Boogie" (both from earlier albums) – and in fact, the "boogie" in the title seems to be a definite reference to that latter track, which is aped a bit on the album, instead of the more common 70s use of the term for disco. Whew! That's a bit of a complicated explanation – but we're just trying to tell you that this one's still plenty funky, with loads of great drums, jazzy riffing, monster basslines, and even a dose of righteous soul! Tracks include "Spirit of The Boogie", "Jungle Jazz", "Ancestral Ceremony", "Winter Sadness", and "Ride the Rhythm". One of their last great LPs, and an essential addition to their mid 70's opus! Reissued with the original gatefold cover, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Music Is The Message
De-Lite, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A pivotal album in the career of Kool & The Gang! This album has the band operating at the top of their early 70s funky powers – and it also shows them dabbling a bit with electronics, which would become a big part of their sound a few albums later. The best example of this is the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kool & The Gang
De-Lite, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album of funky genius – and one of the first times a batch of funky 45s had ever been so tightly sewn into a full LP!

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
Atlantic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Excellent early work from Clarence Carter – recording here with production and arrangements by Rick Hall – in that sweet Muscle Shoals style that never sounded better than it did with Clarence!

Gettin' Over The Hump
Mister Chand/Mercury, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The one and only LP released by this funky soul duo from Chicago! Simtec & Wylie were formed in the shape of Sam & Dave, Bob & Earl, Mel & Tim, and other famous 60s male duos – but they had a madder approach that was the fruit of many years of making funky 45's, and (given ... LP, Vinyl record album
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production! The set's got Maceo coming back strongly into the JB fold, with a fierce array of funky cuts that kick it every bit as hard as the best JBs work of the time. No surprise, the JBs are ...

Family Groove, 1984. New Copy
A previously-unreleased album from Aurra – laid down in the studio after the group's famous run for Salsoul Records – and with a groove that's even leaner and meaner than before! Mainmain Steve Washington is still at the helm of the group – but vocals are handled by Mark Stevens ... LP, Vinyl record album
