Here's where it all happens! George Clinton lands the mothership, forges the space-funk image, and blows the P-Funk empire into an arena-filling mega-star act! The record's got some extremely tight numbers that mix the best of the group's new slick playing with the edginess and naughtiness of the earlier years – and virtually every cut on the album's a classic. The whole thing slides from track to track in a sublime document of the future of funk – and titles include "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)", "Handcuffs", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", and "Unfunky Ufo".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Arista, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason!

Newban
Guinness, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
One of the sweetest ensemble funk albums of the 70s – and a record that's gone on to become a classic, despite the fact that most people know little about the group!

Tabu (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
The start of a legendary run for vocalist Alexander O'Neal – and a set that really helped redefine the sound of male soul in the 80s!

Tabu (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)
Nothing Fragile here – as Cherrelle comes across with plenty of power on this debut LP – thanks to sharp production from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on some of the best cuts, and an overall groove that's right on the best side of early 80s soul! The Jam/Lewis tracks are heavy on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Start
BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Legs EP
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Heavy funk from a Bay Area legend – and an EP that features 4 previously unreleased tracks by Darondo, none of which are on his previous reissue on Luv N Haight!

Popcorn
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous turning point in the career of James Brown – and an album that points the way strongly to the even deeper funk of the 70s!

Deep Night
Numero, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A wild little record from the hinterlands of rural Illinois in the early 80s – a set that's got a vibe that's quite different than most other albums of its time – more in a sunny, folksy, early 70s Cali mode than the darker sounds that were coming out of Chicago during the same stretch! ...
