✨✧ William OnyeaborAtomic Bomb (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible legacy in music! For years, the music of William Onyeabar has been the stuff of legend, but only accessible to a few who could get their hands on scarce original pressings – but that lack has really been corrected by Luaka Bop's revival of Onyeabar's magical music, complete with all the original artwork! William's got a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a weird mix of African rhythms and contemporary 70s keyboards – served up in a hypnotic blend of boogie and underground club styles borrowed from the US, but delivered with an earthy, very personal quality – a sound that's gotten Onyeabar plenty of attention over the years. And while Luaka Bop did a wonderful job on collecting together some of his best tracks for their Who Is William Onyeabor compilation, each record is really something special, and every long track has its own sort of magnetic attraction for the listener! Includes "Beautiful Baby", "Atomic Bomb", "Shame", "I Need You All Life" and "Batter Change Your Mind". (Global Grooves, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George ClintonR&B Skeletons In The Closet ... LP
Capitol, 1986. Very Good+ ... $8.99
We kept hoping and hoping throughout the 80s that Clinton would get back into the funk of things, but it seems he never quite hit his stride, with the exception of the "Atomic Dog". And though we can't hold this up anywhere near his best work, it's a reasonably solid effort, given that we're now looking back on those 80s keyboard sounds, cheesy drum machines and bass heavy grooves with a bit more fondness these days. By this point, his band included former Headhunter Blackbyrd McKnight and former JB's Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker, plus the inimitable Bootsy Collins, and they cut seven grooves for you here, including "Electric Pygmies", "Do Fries Go With That Shake?" and the "Mix Master Suite".

✨✧ Undisputed TruthSmokin' ... LP
Warner/Whitfield, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Undisputed Truth are still going very strong at the end of the 70s – working with original producer Norman Whitfield, in a groove that's every bit as wonderful as their early years! There's a killer mix of funk and deeper soul here that few other acts could handle this well – a way of hitting the flashy funk of Sly & The Family Stone or Graham Central Station – but also not falling into any showbiz traps, either – in a mode that really his the group not only respecting the role of each member, but also working together in a very cohesive way on the album. The result is a great little set that balances funky grooves with some excellent cosmic soul cuts – supported by great session work from giants like Wah Wah Watson, Walt Downing, and Jack Ashford. A few cool keyboard lines further cement the sound of the record – and titles include "Show Time", "Space Machine", "I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love", "Misunderstood", "Sandman", "Atomic Funk", and "Talkin To The Wind".

✨✧ Undisputed TruthMethod To The Madness/Smokin' ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Two gems from The Undisputed Truth – back to back in a single package! First up is Method To The Madness – a killer classic from the second chapter of the Undisputed Truth – that time when the group stepped away from their Motown home, and followed producer/creator Norman Whitfield to his own label in California! The shift of record companies also marks a cool shift in styles too – an approach that still has all the bold, bassy elements you'd know from the earlier hits – but one that also has some fuller, more cosmic elements too – which are hinted at by the image on the cover! The set begins with a weird electronic spoken number that's almost experimental – then brings up the bass for a bit of heavy funk, while also using electric elements in a way that really points the way to sounds that other big funk groups would cop at the start of the 80s – but which really sound fresh here in the hands of Undisputed Truth. Titles include "Sunshine", "Take A Vacation From Life (And Visit Your Dreams)", "Life Ain't So Easy", "You + Me = Love", "Cosmic Contact", "Hole In The Wall", and "Let's Go Down To The Disco". Smokin has The Undisputed Truth still going very strong at the end of the 70s – working with original producer Norman Whitfield, in a groove that's every bit as wonderful as their early years!

✨✧ VariousBest Of King Gospel ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful selection of work from gospel's "golden age" – the formative late 40s and early 50s years, when the music was first making it onto records in ways that it previously hadn't. At the time, the King label was home to some of the freshest blues and R&B artists of the time, and their position in the market made them a perfect choice to record these gospel artists, especially the small vocal groups – who were styled in a similar fashion to the label's doo wop groups of the time. And in a way, the feel here is almost like doo wop – with mostly male groups, singing in a hard and raw style with a real focus on harmonies. Titles include "Toll The Bell" and "Live So God Can Use You" by Swan Silvertone Singers, "Who Is Your Friend" and "Where Shall I Go" by The Trumpeteers, "Jesus Is All The World To Me" and "Too Close To Heaven" by Cumberland River Singers, "It's A Highway To Heaven" and "Seek & Ye Shall Find" by The Nightingales, "The Atomic Telephone" and "Workin Till The Day Is Done" by The Spirit Of Memphis Quartet, and "In That Great Reunion" and "Going Back To Jesus" by The Four Internes. (Gospel, Soul) CD
