Finally! Andre Williams has been getting loads of press over the past few years as the true "Funky Godfather" that he is – but up until now, nobody's ever done a good compilation of his work! This long-overdue set from Tuff City digs through the vaults of Avin, Sport, & Wingate – smaller labels that Williams recorded with around the same period that he was working with Chess – and the result is a funky funky batch of great little tracks, the sort that we always sell for a bundle on our funky 45 pages! Williams hard funky talent rings loud and true here (a hell of a lot more than on those recent recordings) – and the album's filled with great gems like "Black Bull", "Loose Juice", "Soul Groove", "Bassology", "Hard Hustling", "Jivin Around", "Rip Tips (parts 1 & 2)", "Pearl Time", "Chickent Thights", and the great "Sweet Little Pussy Cat". 16 cuts in all – and nice and funky!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wasted
Tuff City/Funky Delicacies, Early 70s. New Copy
An essential bit of funkiness from this obscure New Orleans funk combo!

Materiali Sonori/Medical, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
Classic work from the legendary Alexander Robotnick – an artist who not only scored big on European dancefloors in the early 80s – but one whose electronic grooves also went onto really shape the sound of house music here in the US!

Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, 1973. New Copy Gatefold
Incredible stuff – a never-issued funky soul record from the 70s – but one that you'll proudly stack next to your rare classics from Ramp, 24-Carat Black, and James Mason! Like work by all three of those acts, this early set by Father's Children is massive righteous – filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chicken Lickin'
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Night Grooves
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers. While the approach might not sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Too Many People In One Bed
Canyon/Alive, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Sandra's a heck of a singer – and even though she only got a chance to cut this one album, it's more than enough to make her tops in our book! Jerry (Swamp Dogg) Williams produced, and the set's got a sweet southern style that puts it right up there with the best work of Ann Sexton, Tommie ... LP, Vinyl record album
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! Newban have a sound that's almost a jazzier take on the Earth Wind & Fire groove of the time – a style that's warm ... 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!

Sentiments
Storyville/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the coolest, most compelling albums we've ever heard from reedman Sahib Shihab – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love all his other music! This rare gem's got a very exotic feel –explained by Shihab in the notes as coming from a Tunisian influence on the leadoff track ... LP, Vinyl record album
Medical, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
Electronic sounds, but pretty darn catchy too – and not nearly as dark as you might guess from the title! The duo have a sound that's wonderfully perky at points – not poppy, but all-abristle with some cool analogue elements that crackle nicely next to the catchy vocals, and sweetly ...
