Freaky Finnish disco – a huge collection that features 100 tunes recorded in Finland at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – each of them a unique contribution to the sound of club music! The styles here vary widely – and although most of the music was marketed under the genre of disco, there's also a good degree of disco-influenced European pop in the mix too – that extrapolation of American dancefloor modes that was used often by German and Scandinavian producers at the end of the 70s. However, that doesn't stop the set from being pretty darn groovy – and with that many tunes to chose from, especially at this price, there's more than enough grooves in the mix for the money. Notes are all Finnish, but seem to be pretty detailed on the contents – and from what we can tell, the 4CD package brings together contents of an 8 cassette series that was issued with some pretty striking covers back in the day! Features work by Bianca, Jukka Heino, Salomon, Nummisuutarit, Jarno Sarjanen, Eric, Lisbeth, Leena, Veijo Sailio, John Hemlight, Paajanen, Maria, Kirsi, Ami & Kirsi, Harmony Four, Eric Mannstrom, and many other cats who never cracked these shores at the time!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Soul Brother (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
A great tribute to the concept of the "wants list" – that crumpled piece of paper that nearly every record collector carries around with them, a listing of hard to find recordings that they're always trying to track down! The set is a great mix of obscure 60s and 70s soul, with a ... CD

Prestige/BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy
Really classic jazz grooves from the vaults of Prestige Records – the kind of cuts that first broke big on the London scene of the 80s, at a time when diggers were setting fire to the rare groove scene too! The cuts here are proof that some of the best work doesn't need to come from ... CD

Somerset/Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy
One of those great little 60s knockoff rock records – served up by a group of no-name musicians, but with a very groovy feel! We're guessing The Villains were a combo who were only cooked up for this project, but they've got a great sound throughout – a mod mix of garagey elements with ... CD

Norton, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy
Maybe the coolest volume so far in this all-amazing series – a heady dip into the farther reaches of the Kim Fowley universe! This time around, Kim's only the performer on a few track – and most numbers are by obscure groups, both soul and rock – originally recorded by Fowley for ... CD
