Mateo y Trasante
Sondor/Lion, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing little record from the Uruguay scene of the 70s – not as much as a hotbed of activity as some other South American nations, but still home to a few key geniuses – like the brilliant Eduardo Mateo! Mateo works here alongside musical partner Jorge Trasante – who mixes a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
DeLuxe/FTG, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A pair of great lost albums from The Manhattans – both from the early years, and presented here in a single package with bonus tracks too! First up is With These Hands – a real lost chapter in the career of The Manhattans – some wonderful harmony sides cut for the Deluxe label in ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
People/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s! Like those gems, this one has Collins working with James Brown on production and the JBs in the background – creating a razor-sharp groove that's probably the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/FTG, 1973. New Copy
The Manhattans' first album for Columbia – and a monster LP that showed that there was no turning back for the group! After cutting some seminal indie singles for the Carnival label during the 60s, the group sort of bumped around a bit during the early 70s – but with the release of ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy
Tripped-out Latin sounds, both classic and contemporary – served up in a collection that bristles with excitement throughout! The initial wave of this music came from a late 60s stretch when the cats up in Harlem were getting a bit more freewheeling than usual – picking up not just the ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Uuquipleu, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
A really obscure group from the Detroit scene of the late 70s and early 80s – but one who live on strongly in this double-length set – thanks to the recording efforts of drummer Leonard King! The group were kind of a follow-up to King's previous Soul Messengers group – and to his ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1954. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent early album by pianist Elmo Hope – one that has him grooving in a very modernist approach to bop, working perfectly with a tight little quintet that offers an expanded vision of the sorts of sounds he'd previously cut in a trio setting! The group features some especially great ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 60s. New Copy
Seminal sounds from one of the hippest vibists of the 60s – the great Jerzy Milian, who was easily Europe's answer to Bobby Hutcherson at the time! The material here comes from a few key performances by the Milian trio at the Jazz Jamboree festival in Poland – sort of the Eastern ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/FTG, 1974. New Copy
Sublime work from The Manhattans – who are on top of the world at this point! The group's harmonies are excellent, a bit rough in the best parts – ala Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes during the Teddy Pendergrass years – but also capable of tremendous strength when forged ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
CD...$11.99 12.98 (LP)
Sweet and salty psych-soul-rock-funk from Adrian Quesada and Shawn Lee, working together as The Electric Peanut Butter Company! They're a company of just 2, handling every aspect themselves, but if you if ever heard anything by either party, you know this is going to have a huge sound. Lots of ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy
One of the hippest albums ever from this incredible Polish vocal group – and that's saying a lot, because all of their albums are pretty darn hip! This set has the Novi Singers working in a freer, more open-ended mode than on some of their earlier records – hitting some territory that ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Descent Into The Maelstrom
East West (Japan), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
Rare material from the great Lennie Tristano – a host of tracks that sit perfectly with his two landmark albums for Atlantic Records – and which maybe even push the envelope a bit more as well! The material is all from the 50s and early 60s – and is pulled together here in an ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Planet Rock (voc, inst)/Bonus Beat I (glow in the dark vinyl)
Tommy Boy, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
The classic from Afrika Bamaaataa & The Soul Sonic Force – one of the most revolutionary pieces of formative hip hop history! "Planet Rock" is straight up legendary for a number of reasons. It's one of those early hip hop hits to bring the genre to greater popularity, the deft ... 12-inch, Vinyl record (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stolen Moments
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
One of the last sessions Oliver Nelson ever recorded – a genius batch of work recorded for the Japanese East Wind label, and maybe one of his greatest albums ever! The set's a wonderful link between the sophisticated large group sounds that Nelson did for Impulse Records in the 60s, and some ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
A brilliant take on vintage sounds by Cornwall combo The Mighty Sceptres – seamlessly mixing vintage funky group soul styles! As much as we dug their earlier 7-inch on Ubiquity, we're pretty much floored by how much deeper this excellent full length cuts! Singer Angeline Morrison has a way ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Led Zeppelin at their most sprawling – in both ambition and in the pacing – on the gargantuan Physical Graffiti! This is the album where they started bringing some odd synth textures to the sound, and it's to Zeppelin's eternal credit that this doesn't compromise their blues-reverent ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rough Guide, 1970s/1980s. New Copy
Rare African tracks in a variety of styles – from heavy funk, to fuzzy psych, to other inventive grooves that create some whole new modes of their own! The tracks here move way past the usual familiar sound that "rare groove" might imply – quite far from American funk and ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Totally great sound library material from the Polish radio scene of the late 70s and early 80s – music that never made it to our side of the Iron Curtain at the time, but which totally shows the same growing love for keyboards and electronics you'd find at the KPM or DeWolfe studios too! The ... CD (Sound Library)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
C Kunspyruhzy, 2015. New Copy 3CD
Leave it to George Clinton to keep on being productive over all these years – so much so that even after we haven't heard from Funkadelic for awhile, George hits us with a full 3CDs' worth of new material! The sound and style here continues that extrapolation of older P-Funk with newer modes ... CD (Soul)
