Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An incredible album of harmony soul – easily one of the best you could ever hope to find!

Mickey & The Soul Generations (3LP set)
Cali Tex, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold (reissue)
Was funk ever this great again? Maybe not – as Mickey & The Soul Generation were one of the greatest groups of their generation – a completely polished gem, in the sometimes rough-edged funky 45 rockpile! The band never cut a full album, but their 7" singles from the early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Craft/Numero, 1976. New Copy
An amazing bit of soulful funk from the 70s – never issued at the time, but with a mindblowing quality that we'd rank right next to some of our rare favorites from the decade! The set's not just rare for rare's sake – but has this sound that's really special – kind of a bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album

King/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible late 50s set for King by singer Lula Reed – and a pretty unique blend of R&B and bluer and moodier material – but a lot more upbeat than you'd expect from the title! Lula's voice is a genuine vessel for the bluesy material, but it's also light and lovely, and works ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ghetto Reality
Folkways/Mississippi, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Kind of silly – but also pretty darn hip! Nancy Dupree was one of the most righteous music teachers you could ever have – and here, she's working with some young kids from the rough side of Rochester, in an album of simple tunes that have a surprisingly soulful edge to them. Nancy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blank Project
Smalltown Supersound (Sweden), 2014. New Copy
Some of the most striking work we've heard from Neneh Cherry in years – and a great follow-up to her previous project with The Thing! This set has Neneh working with producer Kieran Hebden – who returns Cherry to the offbeat, arty sound of her early years on the British scene – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul
GSF, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An undisputed funk classic – even back in the days before anyone ever said the phrase "funk classic"! This album must have been deleted the day it came out – because even though it's attained legendary proportions with groovers worldwide, it's always been hard to find – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funky Delicacies, 1970. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold
Unreleased material by Ike & Tina Turner – hard, funky, and very fierce! The sound here is similar to some of the pair's more famous albums of the time – but it's also rawer and rootsier, as befits the demo status of these recordings. If you've ever gotten turned off by the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Back To Black
Universal, 2006. New Copy
An incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than ...

Isis Voyage
Outrageous/Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP
