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 the tune moves along, and which goes way beyond the usual horn section groove, and almost hits a funky soundtrack sort of mode! "TIBWF" is another stripped-down groover that's mighty nice – one that steps in a madly slow sort of funky way, with bass cutting out the rhythm, and horns and guitar vamping down hard on the offbeats! Almost Chicano funk, but darker!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

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. It's got the raw ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

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

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

World (Is Going Up In Flames)/Heartaches and Pain
Dunham/Daptone, 2007. New Copy
Scorching raw soul from Charles Bradley – backed by the tight Menahan Street Band! "World (Is Going Up In Flames)" might be the best track yet from Bradley – an incredible groover with a heavy theme – but the apocalypse never sounded so sweet! The groove is raw and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daptone, 2008. New Copy
A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe! "How Long" still has plenty of soul here, but it also takes on a bit of a Kingston groove too – stepping along with a 60s rocksteady vibe that supports Sharon's vocals ... 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"! The cover works incredibly well, with Bradley's gravely vocals carrying the emotion of Young's lyrics in really moving ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Controller, 2013. New Copy
Spacey 80s boogie-styled instro funk from Musca – the first single on the Soul Controller imprint! "Highlights" is highlighted by nicely paced funky beats and handclaps – which are mirrored by an uber-thick bass line and cosmic keyboards. Nice and spacey – and that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
