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!

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
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!

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

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
Some of greatest funk yet from the mighty Soul Surfers! "Show Introduction" would doubtlessly be one killer intro to a live show – and if you've never heard the group before, this is great introduction to their style.

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!

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
