One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 19 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Love Injection, 1980s/2013. New Copy
A collection of disco, funk and boogie breaks and loops – one that sets itself apart from most other breaks records – by going into the 1980s era, as opposed raw early breakbreat funk! 2 sides of post disco kicks, snares, horns, handclaps, synths and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 1990s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold
Killer cuts from some of the most underground years of house music – that rich 90s stretch when there was some really excellent work coming out from a host of global labels – most of which never got the same sort of exposure as the first wave of house!

World Psychedelic Classics/Tropicalia In Furs, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fuzzed out treasure trove of rare Brazilian psychedelia – wild stuff that's in many ways akin to the freewheeling sounds of the Tropicalia movement, but not necessarily taking on the cultural and political weight of that movement – and more about the boundless spirit of psychedelia ...

Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy LP & Book
Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard!

Cultures Of Soul, 1970s/2011. New Copy
They're not kidding about the title on this one – although they might have added "weirdest" to the name, too! The songs here are all familiar ones, especially if you dig rare grooves from the 60s and 70s – but the versions you'll hear are definitely unusual – often some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2000. New Copy 2LP
A fantastic collection of rare bossa material from Italy! The set's one of the best we've ever seen of this type, and it's a completely fresh batch of tunes that breaks past a lot of the other Italian compilations of recent years. Some of the artists are familiar names – like Morricone, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plastic (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Totally cool new 2LP set on Plastic, and in a very similar mode to some of the other great Italian comps of funky music – like Stroboscopia, Mo' Plen, and Easy Tempo. The set's a collection of funky grooves from the lost Phase 6 label, and features some totally wild tracks with electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great!

What Is It
BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the best album ever from this fantastic funky combo! The band grooves hard and funky – with incredible drum work from Paul Stubblefield, tasty guitar from Walter Winston, and some famous funky flute and sax work from Gus Hawkins. Tracks on the album are rough and raw – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keep On Steppin'
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Rare early work from Etta James – material cut during the late 50s for the west coast Modern Records label, most of it a lot harder-hitting than Etta's more famous music for Chess in the 60s! Given the raw power of Etta James at Chess, that's saying a heck of a lot – and you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album
