CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tramp (Germany), 1970s.
Maybe the best volume so far in this ultra-hip series – a collection that already focuses on lost righteous tunes from the 70s – but which really seems to hit a special space this time around! The music on the set often isn't exactly jazz, soul, or funk – yet it shares many of ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. Gatefold (reissue)
Wonderful work from one of the grooviest soundtrack composers ever! At the end of the 60s, Piero Umiliani wrote some of the best film scores to come out of the Italian scene – and this little gem, long out of print, is certainly one of them! The album's got some beautifully jazzy numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rittor (Japan), 2015.
One of the most essential discographies we've ever seen – mostly because we own almost none of the records in the book, which makes it an essential volume to use for digging in the crates! This time around, the folks at Rittor – who've given us other great record books over the years ... Book (Books)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jcopy (Japan), 2016.
One of the coolest books on turntable culture we've ever seen – a really lovely book that features dozens and dozens of Japanese portable turntables – each laid out with lots of photos, model information, and listing of the features too! The book is similar to some of the Japanese ... Book (Books)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1973.
Soulful live work from the legendary Kashmere Stage Band – a small-time Texas ensemble from the 70s, but one who managed to record a heck of a lot of great records in a few short years! This concert record has the band sounding every bit as wonderful as in the studio – stepping forth ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1971.
One of the funkiest records ever from Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia – and a set that also has him singing a bit of English language lyrics too! The groove here is that classic Maia blend of Brazilian roots with American funk and soul – echoes of forro or samba in some of the rhythms, ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Universal, 2016. CD & DVD
Snarky Puppy serve up a second family dinner – and this time around, their sound is even more expansive than before – still strongly done in that warm, tight blend of live instrumentation, but also augmented with a host of global elements as well! The core style is still very soulful, ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A really unique side of the legendary One-Derful family of Chicago soul music labels – the tiny Halo imprint, where the company issued all of their incredible gospel music! The Halo sound is like a deep soul take on the other One-Derful/Mar-V-Lus material – cut at the same time, in a ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lights
Basis (Japan), 2015.
Indigo Jam Unit are really on fire here – working in a monstrous blend of funky drums, acoustic piano, and some of the warmest, roundest basslines you'll ever hope to hear! Imagine a jazz trio with an ear for small combo funk, and you'll get part of the picture of these guys – but they' ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Won't It Be Grand
Peacock/Playback, 1974.
One of the deepest records issued on the Peacock label in the 70s – and that's saying a lot, given the soulful sound of the legendary gospel imprint! The Crowns Of Glory work here as a many-voiced unit, but one with a really intimate feel – often set to a spare groove, and with a ... CD (Gospel)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Be! (Germany), 1970.
CD...$129.99 199.99
A huge document of this incredible year in jazz in Germany – a time when free styles were breaking out all over, alongside some of the groovier styles of the MPS scene as well! This beautiful box documents the 12th German Jazz Festival in three different concerts – amazing music that ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sony/Bridge (Japan), Late 60s. Gatefold
A totally wonderful little record that's every bit as sexy as you might guess from the cover – and which also has some of the groovy French elements you might expect from the title! The set's got this slinky, erotic vibe that's almost in Serge Gainsbourg territory – save for the fact ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tim Maia (1970)
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970.
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RM Jazz Legacy
Key Of Life (Japan), 2015.
A totally wonderful jazz ensemble from Japan – one who definitely work in some of the older modes you'd guess from the "legacy" in their name, especially the hippest funky big band styles of the 70s – yet a group who also have a very fresh, individual vibe of their own! These ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Odeon/El (UK), 1959.
A beautiful early showcase of the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and one of the best late 50s albums from the lovely Sylvia Telles! The album's got a wonderfully gentle feel – one that's a far cry from some of the more emotive female vocal work that had come from Brazil in the ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1970.
A really great little western score from Riz Ortolani – a composer you might know from bigger films of the 60s, and a handful of especially nice action and comedy soundtracks too! Riz seems to be drawing on the latter a bit here – as he mixes the usual western elements with some ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Percussion Explosion!
Alston, Late 70s. (reissue)
The percussion-heavy soul gem from Herman Kelly & Life – recorded in both Brazil & Miami – and awash with killer drum work all the way through! The album's a key part of the Miami sound especially – and really shows the way that city's 70s funk scene used congas heavily ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Victor (Japan), 1979.
The woman on the cover's got a look of shock on her face – maybe because she's just seen the Flasher promised in the title, or maybe just because she's surprised at how groovy this album really is! The set's an obscure late 70s Japanese disco outing – one that's very faithful to the ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1975.
Rare Japanese live material from the legendary Kashmere Stage Band – a southern group made up from very young musicians – but one that comes across with a wickedly funky vibe! Despite their roots in Texas, Kashmere got the chance to play a live set in Okinkawa in 1975 – quite an ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Banda Del Sole
Philips/Radici (Italy), 1978. Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful blend of Italian jazz and Brazilian inspiration – served up by percussionist Toni Esposito with a warmly electric vibe! The album's an Italian one, but it's got a groove that reminds us of our favorite Brazilian fusion from the period – a criss-crossing of cultural modes ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)
