A great version of the classic Rufus Thomas album Do The Funky Chicken – presented here with lots of bonus tracks from singles! The core record is one of Rufus' best from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set crackles with a raw intensity that put him at the top of the funky Stax for the time! The set includes the massive comeback hit "Funky Chicken", plus a sublime remake of "Sixty Minute Man" – done in a slow and funky mode that rolls on for lover 7 minutes in all! Other tracks include "Soul Food", "Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown", "Turn Your Damper Down", and remakes of "The Preacher & The Bear" and "Bearcat". Plus, the CD also features a bonus 7 tracks from singles at the time – work that's almost even funkier, on titles that include "Itch & Scratch (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Way", "So Hard To Get Along With", "Funky Mississippi", and "Boogie Ain't Nuttin (parts 1 & 2)".

Two of the most excellent Impressions ABC albums, and the one's that are always nearly impossible to find on wax. Recorded in the years 1964 and 1965, just when Curtis Mayfield was beginning to get his political teeth, but when he still had an amazing talent for heartrending love songs. Includes ... CD

Westbound (UK), 1973. New Copy
Fuzzy funk from some of the all-time greats – one of the key Westbound Records classics from the mighty Ohio Players! This album's got the Players working at their all-time best – a bit jazzy, with a more sophisticated undercurrent than some of their contemporaries – a righteous ... CD
