Majesty Music
Arista/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy
One of the great ones from bassist Miroslav Vitous – a musician you might know from more atmospheric moments, but artist who could really be funky when he wanted! The album's got this righteous groove that really matches the energy of Miroslav's Magical Shepherd album from the same time ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second wonderful look at the world of female pop in Spain – a nation that's not gotten nearly the same sort of global exposure over the years! We've stocked plenty of groovy French pop, in many formats – and even Italian gal pop has gotten lots of play recently – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CAM (Italy), 2015. New Copy 3LP
A triple-threat of rare horror soundtracks from Goblin – packaged here in a very limited collection! First up is Profondo Rosso – one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound is virtually a blueprint for ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Estrelando Embaixador
Goma Gringa (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing bit of funk from early 70s Brazil – an ultra-rare album, but one that almost beats some of the bigger Brazilian classics of the time! The recording has a very unusual approach – a non-stop blend of songs on each side – which makes for long, continuous tracks that mix ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat Goes On
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy
The beat goes on, and just keeps getting better and better too – thanks to the growing sophistication of the Young/Holt duo, once they broke away from Ramsey Lewis! The bass and drums share equal space in the spotlight – and the production has the former really up high in the mix, ... 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
People/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production! The set's got Maceo coming back strongly into the JB fold, with a fierce array of funky cuts that kick it every bit as hard as the best JBs work of the time. No surprise, the JBs are ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Step Lightly
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. New Copy
One of the most obscure records from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – a great session recorded in the 60s, during Blue's classic stretch with Blue Note – but not issued until 1980, and even then, only briefly! The record's a great example of Mitchell's strong capacity to play well in a larger ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Second Phase
Expansion (UK), 2015. New Copy
We somehow mist Tristan the first time around – but man, are we more than making up for that now – with loads of love for this incredible second set! Tristan's got this wonderful sense of poise and polish to her music – not slick at all, but just super-tight, with an immediately ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy
The landmark first album from Joan Armatrading – a singer who's almost a genre unto herself! The album's awash with Joan's early collaborations with songwriter Pam Nestor – pairing hear with Armatrading at a level that's almost like that of Bernie Taupin and Elton John during the same ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Tiger
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy
The best work yet from Alex Puddu – the musician who explored the world of 70s porno on previous records for Schema, and who steps out here with an even more classic groove! The great Joe Bataan is in the group on vocals – adding in this old school New York element that really makes ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hawk Squat (with bonus tracks)
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the most dynamic, most on-fire blues albums recorded during the 60s by Delmark Records – a set that bursts right out of the Chicago clubs with the guitar of JB Hutto firmly in the lead! Hutto's a killer right from the start – singing and playing with a ferocity that easily ... CD (Blues)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A stunning collection of rare Chicago soul – pulled from the M-Pac label, which was part of the One-Derful family of records – and packed with vintage singles and 10 previously unreleased tracks too! This series is fantastic – the first really deep look at the Chicago underground ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Black Resurrection
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2015. New Copy 2CD
A double CD set of timeless, soulful house from Chicago legend Glenn Underground – who is as deft as ever at laying down diverse sounds that blend cosmic keys and earthy production, jazzy rhythms and soulful beats, and occasional dreamy vocals. It's a mix of recent grooves and remixed ... CD (New Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dreamer
Capitol (Japan), 1979. New Copy
The last full album from Caldera – and a wonderful set that's a perfect cap to their classic late 70s run on Capitol Records! The groove here is fusion, but with lots of Latin undercurrents – especially on the percussion, which rumbles up from the bottom to make for a nicely organic ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
The fourth smoking volume in this wonderful series – filled with excellent pre-soul grooves all the way through! The Outta Sight label is one that we normally know for Northern Soul reissues, but in recent years they've also been handling a lot of R&B – but all with an ear towards ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Africa
Now Again, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs
CD...$15.99 17.98 (LP)
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jazz Rolls Royce
Omega/VSOP, 1957. New Copy
A great little record – and one that gets past the over-used "Howard Rumsey Lighthouse" name, to move into a set of 50s west coast jazz at its best! The core group features Bob Cooper, Frank Rosolino, Stu Williamson, Stan Levy, Victor Feldman, and Rumsey – and for the session ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Acrobat (UK), 1972. New Copy
A lost live date from the great British tenorist Tubby Hayes – recorded right near the end of his too-short life, but a stone cooker all the way through! The material was recorded live at the Hopbine – but it's different than both the other 1972 album from the venue, or earlier Hopbine ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EMI/Somatoria Do Barulho (Brazil), 1968. New Copy
A great little album from Noriel Vilela – a soulful samba singer with a very unusual voice! The arrangements on the set are a mixture of straight samba and lots of the hipper late 60s styles that were showing up in the EMI/Odeon catalog of Brazil – with Hammond organ bubbling ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)
