A great Latin boogaloo set from Ray Lugo & his Boogaloo Destroyers – fulfilling Lugo's longtime ambition of modern take a the mix of Latin soul, rhythm & blues and more that were so inspiring to Lugo's childhood in NYC! Lugo is a veteran of the modern Afro Funk scene – having cut his teeth the the excellent Kokolo group – so the Boogaloo Destroyers isn't all that surprising of a stylistic leftturn, as all we've heard from Lugo suggest a depth of understand of myriad soulful styles. Here they cover classics by Mongo Santamaria, Hector Rivera, Roberto Valentin and others. Includes "Soy El Rey", "Swingy Boogaloo", "Combo", "At The Party", "Me And You Baby (Picao Y Tostao)", the excellent original cut "Lugo's Boogaloo", "My Shingaling", "El Bantu" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tramp (Germany), 2014. New Copy
Stardom seems eminent with this fierce funky combo – a quintet of players with a deep love of southern sounds from the 60s – particularly the best grooves coming out of Memphis or New Orleans!

Music For Adverts
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group! The title's a reference to older Brit sound library albums, but the overall ... LP, Vinyl record album

Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy
An amazing chapter in the career of Lee Fields – an artist who's been moving our souls for decades, but who just keeps on growing in these really great ways! Unlike the fragile style of My World, or the heady southern soul of Faithful Man, Emma Jean's got this very different vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Polaroid
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy
Andre Solomko is an artist who was born a few decades late – the kind of talent who would have been right at home in the CTI scene of the 70s – where he no doubt would have risen to great fame for his music! Yet we're also more than happy to have him working strong here in the 21st ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2011. New Copy
Classic-styled funk from Alex Puddu – not only the greatest record we've heard from him so far, but a set that's definitely worthy of its "golden age" claim in the title! The music is all new, but it was done for a series of short Danish porno films from the 70s – and Puddu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy
A really beautiful little set of tracks – music composed to accompany vintage porn films from the 70s – played to perfection by the great Alex Puddu!

Problems
Soul Fire/Truth & Soul, 2002. New Copy (reissue)
Tight!! Lee Fields, one of the great criminally under appreciated funky geniuses of the 70s is back with another pounding, raw funk classic that still finds the man at the peak of his powers, decades after he first made mark on the funk landscape! This is Lee's first full length effort for Soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Truth & Soul, 2012. New Copy
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hips Shaking
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy
The coolest work we've heard so far from this Patchworks side project – a record that fuses together equal parts 70s jazz, funk, and soul – with just the right smattering of global influences as well! There's a tightness to the set that we really love – careful instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album

Comet (France), 2014. New Copy
Tracks from the great Tony Allen – but completely remade here with a complicated set of rhythms and very tripped-out style of production! Doctor L features very heavily on the record (which also has contributions from Thiago Franca and Mps Pilot) – and the whole thing reminds us a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
