Wonderful grooves from Push – a funky ensemble who flourished in the Seattle scene at the end of the 70s – turning out some really massive sounds in the clubs, and in the studio! This collection's the only one we've ever seen of their work – a much-needed testament to their stone strength on a very local scene at the time – one in which a group like this could work every night of the week to big regional crowds, yet somehow never manage to crack the big time! Yet the group's lack of fame is also what makes this music great – a fresh approach to 70s territory that you might know from some of the bigger acts of the time – with instrumentation jazzy enough to rival some of the Fantasy Records groups of the time – and a sparkling vibe that recalls some of the bigger crossover groups, like Kool & The Gang or Average White Band! The set features recordings from two different sessions – one in Seattle, the other in Portland – and titles include "I'm Not Alone", "I'm A Dreamer", "It Ain't Never Been This Funky", "You Turn Me On", "The Jealous Type", "Reach", "We Have So Much", "You're Nasty", and "Celebration".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Anything You Want
Ariola/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A great bit of indie soul from the mid 70s – and a record that's as wonderful as it is obscure! We don't know much about John, but he's got a spacious, soaring style of soul that's clearly influenced by Stevie Wonder – and which takes the sound into a fuller, richer groove – but ... CD
Avco/Clinck (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The coolest, funkiest, and most soulful set ever issued by Chakachas – a record that's way different than most of their Latin-based music – with a strong American funk vibe all the way through! There's still lots of percussion in the mix, but it's often used in ways that echo more of a ... CD
Avco/Clinck (Japan), 1973/1977. New Copy
Harmony soul heaven – and two great albums back to back in a single set! The initial Softones album is a stellar first set from The Softones – labelmates of The Stylistics in their early years, and a group who really share a similar sense of east coast harmony soul! There's a nicely ... CD
Blue Candle/Clinck (Japan), 1976. New Copy
The one and only album we've ever seen from The 13th Floor – a hip little combo from St Louis, produced here by Oliver Sain in a great blend of jazz, soul, and funk! There's a depth here that goes way beyond the average outing of this type – as the group clearly have some sort of an ... CD
Douglas/Snapper (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 2CD
The first two Last Poets albums back to back in one great 2CD set! The Last Poets is the first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as ... CD
Mar V Lus/Charly (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
The full scope of genius from the legendary Alvin Cash – not just his 60s gritty groovers, but a host of later funk tracks as well – all packaged into a beautiful book-styled package! Cash is one of our favorite Chicago artists ever – a dancer by trade, but a flamboyant ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1984. New Copy
An overlooked girl group from the 80s – but one who step out here with a sound to rival the hits of artists like Vanity 6 or The Mary Jane Girls! Like both of those acts, The Girls get help here from a bigger soul artist in the studio – Minneapolis giant Andre Cymone, who wrote and ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2013. New Copy
One of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene of the past few decades – heard here in a completely sublime setting! Dusko Goykovich has played in many styles and many ways, but hasn't ever done a date with full strings before – a long-overdue placement for his wonderful tone on ... CD
Bubble Gum Machine
Senate/Rock Beat, Late 60s. New Copy
A sweet 60s pop group that definitely lives up to its name, but one that also has a surprisingly soulful undercurrent too! The leadoff cut – "Wha Cha Gonna Do For Me Now" – has a killer break at the start, and a pretty groove groove all the way through – and is arranged ... CD
