Love the drums on this one – all skittish and snapping at the beginning – really setting the scene perfectly for the Afro Funk-styled horns that top off the tune and really set the tone! The track's like some lost Nigerian 45 from the 70s – and given excellent production to really suit the mood! "Ghost Walk" isn't nearly as spooky as it sounds – and has this amazing bassline that dips down in ways you wouldn't expect – kind of like The Meters, but as if they're messing themselves up a bit on purpose – all to set up a groove that's equally savage as the a-side, but completely different in sound!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Daptone, 2005. New Copy
The first funky outing we've ever heard from The Budos Band – but a really tasty funky set, with a raw and stripped-down feel! "Up From The South" is a chugging, churning mass of snapping drum breaks and scratchy guitar – topped by a well-crafted horn part that comes in as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2013. New Copy
A pair of the most incredible cuts from Charles Bradley and The Menahan Street Band! "Confusion" takes Bradley's raw soul roots to a new level – with his gritty, JB-inspired soul singing echoeing over a killer psych funk arrangement from the gentlemen of Menahan.

I Can't Stand These Lonely Nights/Rub The Lamp
Ever-Soul/Daptone, Early 70s/2012. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet Jamaican-tinged take on this tune by Bob & Gene – one that features the duo's vocals set to grooves from the Inversions, a group led by Ticklah – all in a style that turns the soul track into a lost rocksteady number! The approach is mighty nice – strange at first, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2004. New Copy
A funky funky riffer from Charles Bradley and his Bullets! "Now That I'm Gone" is one of the best pieces of new deep funk we've heard in a long time – with searing guitars that rip through the whole thing, and give the tune a really sinister edge that seems to push Charles' vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2004. New Copy
Sharon's got her political agenda straight on this one – working with heavy heavy backings from the Dap-Kings on a hip message-oriented cut that ranks with the best of the early 70s! The groove's overflowing with tight wah wah guitar, topped off by some nice chromatic Willie Hutch-like work ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2011. New Copy
A pair of numbers by Brooklyn soul great Charles Bradley backed by The Menahan Street Band – including a wonderful take on Neil Young's classic "Heart Of Gold"!

Stay Away/Run It Back
Dunham/Daptone, 2012. New Copy
One of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Charles Bradley – thanks to some killer drums on the intro, and this wild psychedelic guitar as well!

Funk Night, 2013. New Copy
Whether the label bills them as the Soul Surfers, or as the Slow Surfers, as they're going by on this 45, you know you're getting some masterful raw funk! "Bird" kicks off with some spare, but heavy organ and drums – which are both a sweet part of the pie with this mysterious ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
