Sound Stage 7/Airline, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Heavy funk from Sound Stage Seven – a legendary label that's often known for its deep soul work of the late 70s – but an imprint who are equally skilled in the funk department as well! The label's Nashville placement gave them a unique opportunity to draw from sources like Memphis, ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (reissue)
Blinding early Horace Silver recordings for Blue Note – work that's really more a Jazz Messengers date than anything else – given that Art Blakey is here on drums, and the rest of the group features Hank Mobley on tenor, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Doug Watkins on bass! Tracks are ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Metropolitan Rhythm
Posi tone, 2015. New Copy
Stellar Hammond from one of the best contemporary talents on the instrument – and one of the few who can really make the organ cook in a stripped-down setting like this! Gold has a tone and touch that's somewhere between Don Patterson and Larry Young – the free flights of the latter in ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy
A pair of rare soundtracks by the great Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Man On A Swing – an obscure mid-70s murder mystery, given a great deal of depth and class from Schifrin's music – which is often surprisingly jazzy, despite the setting of the film ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Excello/KTI (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful little album from the earliest days of the Ingram empire in soul – recorded long before any of the individual members had gone onto bigger mainstream fame, and done in a way that has lots of righteous indie touches! Sister Barbara sings lead vocals on most of the tracks – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Faithful (with bonus track)
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy
A never-heard third Dusty Springfield album for Atlantic Records – issued here for the first time ever, and very much in the same soulful spirit as her other records for the label! Springfield tackled Memphis and Philly soul on her previous two albums for Atlantic – and here, she hits ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5x7inch
Gritty groovers from the legendary Studio One Records – a special, limited box set that brings together a host of great 45s for the label – all in a sweet little package! All tracks have a nice added punch in this 45 format – and titles include "No No No" by Dawn Penn, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Reggae)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Art Yard/Strut (UK), 1973. New Copy
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkesta – and a set that's every bit as great as Ra's self-released albums on Saturn Records in the 70s! The performance is a well-recorded date from France in the early 70s – and the Arkestra are at their richest, most expressive – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dust To Digital, Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
Really unique material from JB Smith – recorded at a time when the singer was serving a life sentence at the Ramsey State Farm in Texas – and mostly unissued over the years, save for a few tracks that previously appeared on a Takoma Records collection in the 60s! Smith sings here in a ... CD (Blues)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy
Man, Orgone sound deeper here than we ever remember before – working with an even more classic soul groove than on their debut recordings for Ubiquity – even though those were totally great too! Orgone emerge here as way more than just another combo from the funky underground – ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Space Oddities 1975 to 1978
Born Bad (France), Late 70s. New Copy
Spacey sounds from the enigmatic Jean Pierre Decerf – a lesser-known sound library artist from the 70s scene in France, but one who's finally getting his due! Decerf has a style that really lives up to the title of the collection – working with lots of keyboards and electronics in a ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Totally great work from Italian sound library composer Paolo Ferra – working here in an extended instrumental mode with a very trippy feel! The music is more instrumental rock than the usual sound library material you might expect – almost like Ummagumma-era Pink Floyd, with these slow- ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Life Between The Notes
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy
Sweet solo work from Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick – the legendary leader of Incognito, and a driving force in global soul music for the past few decades! The set's a bit more instrumental than Bluey's work with his main group – although Bluey himself sings on a number of tracks, ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
More Than Love
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy
A contemporary set from the legendary Con Funk Shun – and one that shows they haven't lost any of their groove over the years! The style here is in that warm mix of funk and soul that the group hit after their initial funky years – a mode that has them realizing that they often sound ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
One of the greatest groups going on the New Zealand scene of the late 60s – killer at covers, and even stronger with their own compositions too! There's a definite Brit invasion feel to the material, especially at the start – as you might guess from the overall look of the package ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1957. New Copy (reissue)
An obscure little groover from Curtis Fuller – and one of his hardest blowing sessions for Blue Note! Unlike some of the other Fuller sessions, which can have a slightly softer, rounder sound overall – this one's a much more in-the-pocket sort of Blue Note hardbop date – one that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Doxy (Italy), 1960/1962. New Copy (reissue)
2 classic Truffaut soundtracks – both penned by Georges Delerue, and presented here on a single CD! First up is Delerue's beautiful score for Jules Et Jim – music that's probably best known for the vocal tune "Le Tourbillon", sung by Jeanne Moreau – but which also ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
East Bay Grease/Bump City
Warner/Friday Music, 1970. New Copy
A pair of classics from Tower Of Power – back to back on a single CD! First up is East Bay Grease –one of the first albums from Tower Of Power – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that really has the group working in a loose, spontaneous mode that's totally great – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1971/1983. New Copy
A pair of obscure Henry Mancini soundtracks – both on CD for the first time ever! First up is Second Thoughts – an early 80s bittersweet comedy, scored by Hank with a surprising wide range of styles – some very serious, and extremely thoughtful – clearly from the more ... CD (Soundtracks)
