✨✧ CL BlastI Wanna Get Down ... CD
Cotillion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A lost southern soul gem – cut at the end of the 70s, in that rare blend of southern and modern styles that few performers could really carry off well! Frederick Knight produced the album, and it really steps off of his own mellow work of earlier years – taking things even further, thanks to a really wonderful presentation on the vocals by CL, sounding here like the best 70s work by Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis! The album's got a really special feel – and if it was cut for a smaller label, it probably would have gone onto become a rare groove treasure – instead of a slightly-overlooked record on Cotillion. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Our Love Will Last", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "I Wanna Get Down", "If I Had Loved You More", "Love Don't Feel Like Love No More", and "Let's Do Something Different Tonight".

VariousHotlanta Soul Vol 3 – Holding The Losing Hand ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Smooth southern soul from the 70s – the kind of collection that really opens up our ears, and takes us past deep and hard soul cliches that can overwhelm other sets! The package is tremendous – offering a range of work recorded in Atlanta and Birmingham from the early part of the 70s – tunes that mark a shift towards new sophistication in southern soul at the time – increasingly adult themes served up in a mix of funky rhythms and mellower soul backings – and often a cut above the usual soul records coming out from the south at the time. There's a strength of songwriting here that really makes the tracks stand out – no surprise, as a good portion of work here was written by Sam Dees, with other key tracks by Jimmy Lewis and Frederick Knight that really elevate the work on the set. Most of the tunes are small indie singles and unreleased numbers, but have a quality level that's extremely high – and titles include "Men" by Peggy Scott, "I Know Where You're Coming From" and "Claim Jumpin" by Sam Dees, "Good Times" and "I Got That Will" by King Hannibal, "I Am Free Of Your Love" and "Doing Right Don't Wrong Nobody" by Bill Brandon, "Fools Love" by CL Blast, "Hanna Mae" by Deep Velvet, "A Better Way" by Johnny Smith Congregation, "That's How Long I'll Be Loving You" by Jimmy Lewis, "If It Wasn't For The Children" by Dee Erwin, "I'm So Glad (extended)" by Phase Four, "Early Morning Love" and "A Woman's Way" by Rozetta Johnson, and "Beautiful Day" by Delia Gartell.

VariousHotlanta Soul Vol 2 – Full Time Groovers ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
An excellent set of southern soul from the 70s! The compilation digs into the vaults of the Hotlanta/GRC imprints – and features some incredibly sophisticated soul tracks recorded in Atlanta and Birmingham, Alabama. Although the Hotlanta label moved into the disco market heavily in the mid 70s, most of the work on this package is from earlier years – when the label had a fantastic talent for cutting soul records that were head and shoulders above work coming out of other southern sources, like Memphis or Miami. The Hotlanta sound relied heavily on strong songwriting and quality interpretation, and the work from the label's artists was way more than the shouting, storming, bragging, cheating, and crying cliches that were tending to drown the output of other soul labels at the time. Much of this stuff's in the best mode of talents like Sam Dees or Jimmy Lewis, both of whom appear on the set – and titles include "Someone To Run To" by Alpaca Phase III, "Let's Get It Back Together Again" by Bill Brandon, "I'll Be Around" by Ron Henderson & Choice Of Color, "Here We Go, Loving Again" by Dillard & Johnson, "Three Into Two Won't Go" by Jimmy Lewis, "Anything Is Fair In Love & War" by Sam Dees, "Hanna's Love" by Joe Hinton, "You're Messing UP A Good Thing" by John Edwards, "Husband In Law" by CL Blast, and "How Could You Run Away" by Danny Johnson. Great stuff – and much of the material is previously unissued! CD

Brothers JohnsonBlam ... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
Blam is right – an all-out batch of funky tracks from The Brothers Johnson – captured here right in the middle of their classic period with Quincy Jones! The Q's at the helm on production for the set, and the record's a great extension of their earlier efforts with the man – but a bit more Johnson-tuned (if we can say that in mixed company) – with the bass upfront on some of the best numbers, and a surprisingly strong male ballad approach on some of the gentler tunes. There's a slightly jazzy undercurrent at times, and tracks include "Rocket Countdown/Blastoff", "Ride-O-Rocket", "Streetwave", "Blam", "So You Won't Stay", "Ain't We Funkin Now", and "Mista Cool".

CandidoDrum Fever ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Candido's funkiest albums! The record's got a similar sound to Candido's great albums for Blue Note and Solid State – with short, hard funky tunes that have a really great 70s edge! Chico O'Farrill did the arrangements, and the record chops along nicely with some very funky tracks that feel like they were lifted from a blacksploitation soundtrack – conga mixed with great keyboards, wah wah guitar, and tight blasts of horns in just the right bits! The whole thing's a killer – filled with heavy funky 45-type numbers – and tracks include "Soulwanco", "Succulent", "Yolanda", "Candido's Funk", "Kushy", "Sultry", and "Mighty Mouth". Very nice!

Dennis CoffeyBlack Belt Jones – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Finally – the long overdue release of one of the funkiest soundtracks ever! The music to Black Belt Jones has always been the stuff of legend – mostly only issued as a promo single back in the 70s, but funky enough that it's ranked among the best soundtracks of the decade! The score was composed and performed by Dennis Coffey and Luchi De Jesus – the former a funk star in his own right, the latter the composer of the ultra-hip Friday Foster soundtrack – and together, the pair have crafted some killer grooves that mix guitars, congas, and blasting orchestrations that could plow Enter The Dragon into the dust! Plus, the soundtrack nicely mixes together bits of dialogue and sound effects from the film – making things sound a lot like some of those cool Japanese Bruce Lee soundtracks that were floating around from years back. Titles include "Love Theme", "At The Beach", "Main Theme", "Opening Theme", "Drama", "Mafia Theme", and "Sexy". LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Fear Not For Men (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
An incredible record from Fela – a set that's maybe even darker and more moody than some of his other records from the time – but still pretty darn funky overall! Side one features the tremendous title cut "Fear Not For Man" – a strong message, especially given Fela's struggles at the time – set to these wicked drums from Tony Allen, which have strong breakbeat quality, but this darker current too – that oddly offbeat vibe that Allen would explore later on his own. There's also an excellent keyboard solo – snakey and spooky – over a brooding bassline that introduces all the other great elements on horns, played with a raw, raspy sensibility that reminds us that although so many others may copy this mode in recent years – there's still nothing like a classic Fela album! "Palm Wine Sound" is on the flipside – a cool instrumental that begins with a moody guitar passage, but then blasts open brilliantly with an amazing sax solo!

Tony FoxBeginning (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blaster/Shout (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $19.99
The only full album we've ever seen from Tony Fox – a singer we know best for much earlier singles, including a few classics in a real deep soul vein! This album, though, has more of a club-oriented sound – an early 80s indie vibe, with lots of modern soul arrangements which work very nicely next to Tony's rich vocal style, and bring sort of a north/soul vibe to the record at points! A few tracks have Fox hitting a ballad approach – returning to the older school with some mellow cuts that maybe have more of a Memphis vibe. Titles include "Givin It All Tonite", "Lay Some Lovin On Me", "A Tear Fell", "Love Let Love & Be Loved", "Hurtin Hurt So Much", "Love & Care", and "A Nite For Love". CD

Alphonso JohnsonMoonshadows/Yesterday's Dreams/Spellbound ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A great run of records from Alphonso Johnson – the best of his career, wrapped up here in one sweet set! First up is Moonshadows – one of the earliest of bassist Alphonso Johnson's funky fusion albums for Epic! Moonshadows is a nice little set of choppy grooves that recalls the best Herbie Hancock moments of the early 70s, plus some of the side projects of the Headhunters. Warmly funky, but with a nice edge – with a more jazz funk rooted sound than the later, slightly heavier Spellbound! The great group of players includes Patrice Rushen is on keyboards, Benny Maupin on reeds, Lee Ritenour on guitars, Airto Moriera on percussion, Gary Bartz on sax, plus Narada Michael Walden and Ndugu Chancler on drums. Tracks include "Stump", "Cosmoba Place", "Involuntary Bliss", "On The Case", "Amarteifio", "Pandora's Box" and the breezy "Up From The Cellar", which features vocals by Flora Purim! Yesterday's Dreams is a killer all-star session of funky fusion tracks – with a nice tight sound produced by Skip Drinkwater! Yesterday's Dreams differs a little from Alphonso's other strong mid 70s efforts in that it's not as spacey as a whole – but the rubbery, cleanly funky grooves are just as strong – and the record as a whole makes for more of a showcase for his excellent group of players! Bassist Johnson leads the session, but there's a huge amount of guests, such as Grover Washington, Patrice Rushen, Mike Clark, and Sheila Escovedo. Plus, Jon Lucien, Diane Reeves, Flora Purim, and Phillip Bailey all sing on the record! Titles include "One To One", "As Little As You", "Scapegoat", "Show Us The Way", "Tales Of Barcelona", and the future soul classic "Love's The Way I Feel 'Bout Cha". Spellbound is a soulfully spacey fusion set from Alphonso Johnson – with a really catchy sound! The maestro is working in an eclectic mode that's part Earth, Wind, & Fire, part Return To Forever, and part Alphonze Mouzon/Tommy Bolin jamming. The best moments on the record are the more straight ahead ones – which really flirt with chunky rock sounds on the other side of the rubbery fusion funkiness! Mouzon's working on all kinds of electric sounds on this one – a bunch of custom bass effects, steel drums and more – with Clyde Criner working with a long list of keys and synthesizers, Kevin Shireve on guitar and David Igelfeld on drums and percussion. Titles include "Face Blaster", "Summer Solstice", "Bahama Mama", "Nomads", and Moonlight Conversation" "Feelings Are. . .The Hardest Words To Say" and "Earthtales Suite". (Jazz, Soul) CD

Kay-GeesKeep On Bumpin' & Masterplan ... CD
Gang/Unidisc, 1974. Used ... $24.99
The Kay-Gees' greatest LP – and far and away better than anything else they ever did! Grabbing up this one is like finding a lost Kool & The Gang LP from the early years –which is no surprise, since Ronald Bell of the group produced it and wrote a lot of the songs with the group. The band are incredibly tight instrumentally – with lots of hard drums, choppy guitar, and the rolling party feel that made Kool & The Gang so great during their best years. There's some great horns that blast in and out, sounding very off-beat at the best moments – like the classic "Who's the Man With the Master Plan", sampled by YZ many years ago – or other funky cuts like "Ain't No Time", "Get Down", and "You've Got to Keep on Bumpin". Plus, this CD also includes 3 extra cuts, which were released only as singles! CD

King CurtisKing Curtis Live At Fillmore West ... LP
Atco, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental grooves laid down by Curtis and his group before Aretha took the stage – very tight and funky numbers that showcase King's work on alto and soprano sax, as well as organ from Billy Preston, guitar from Cornell Dupree, electric piano from Truman Thomas, and funky drums from Bernard Pretty Purdie! The Memphis Horns get into the action a bit – blasting out when the tunes require it – and as with the Franklin album, the recording style here is totally great – very "live", but still with the best focus of Atlantic studio soul! Titles include a smoking 7 minute version of King's funky classic "Memphis Soul Stew", plus long takes on "Changes", "I Stand Accused", and "Soul Serenade" – as well as shorter versions of "A Whole Lotta Love" and "Ode To Billy Joe"!

Modern/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Heavy blues from Jimmy McCracklin – a set of tracks recorded for the Modern label in the mid 50s, with a sound that's much rawer and raunchier than his 60s soul sides! The quality of the set is excellent – with wonderful restoration that makes the tunes crackle with even more raw energy than the original 78s – and added to the later Modern/Crown hits by Jimmy are a number of unissued bonus cuts, fleshing out the package to 24 tracks in all, and including some tunes recorded with Johnny Parker, Jerry Thomas, and Baby Pee Wee Parham. Titles include "Tired Of Everybody", "Gonna Tell Your Mother", "I Got Eyes For You", "My Mother Said", "Give My Heart A Break", "Please Forgive Me Baby", "Rockin All Day", "Deceivin Blues", and "Hamburger Joint".

VariousCoxone's Music – First Recordings Of Sir Coxone The Downbeat 1960 to 1963 (3CD set) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $23.99
An incredible set of music – the roots of so many sounds to come in Jamaica, all pulled from the early pre-Studio One recordings of the legendary Clement Dodd! The music here is much more strongly tied to American styles – and in fact, some cuts could easily pass for soul and R&B – but other cuts show a very strong island influence early on, with roots of some other West Indian sounds filtering down to groove that's already coalescing into the classic sound of Kingston! We've loved Dodd's productions for many years – but this set is still a real ear-opener for us, given the range of material that we'd never heard before – and the richly detailed notes from Soul Jazz, which tell the tale of the brilliant birth of Jamaican music that would shape the rest of the world for generations to come. 3CD set is overflowing with music – 46 tracks that include "Over The River" by Jiving Juniors, "Answer Me" by Derrick Harriott, "Do You Know" by Owen & Millie, "What A World" by Busty & Cool, "Counter Punch" by Roland Alphonso, "Pine Juice" by Clue J & His Blues Blasters, "Oceans 11" by City Slickers, "Serenade In Sound" by Workshop Musicians, "Best Twist" by Owen Gray, "Dew Drops" by Don Drummond, "Independence Blues" by Basil Gabbidon, "Searching" by Simms & Robinson, "Romantic Shuffle" by The Shinners, and "I Do" by Neville Esson.

VariousHotlanta Soul – Good Guys Don't Always Win ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... About June 1, 2016
Although other southern cities like Memphis and New Orleans had the "first jump" on soul music, Atlanta managed to turn out some excellent soulful sides during the early 70s – many of which are on this great CD! The set features 21 stunners from the Hotlanta studios – including work by more famous artists like Loleatta Holloway and Sam Dees, plus other lesser known stuff that will knock your socks off. The sound is fantastic, with a much more sophisticated approach to arranging than was being put down in other southern cities – and the result is a beautiful batch of mellow tracks that have deep deep vocals, with tight studio production. Titles include "Love Is Gone" by Choice Of Colors, "Streets Got My Lady" by Bill Brandon, "Left Over Love" by C.L.Blast, "Since We Said Goodbye" by The Counts, "There's Got To Be Rain In Your Life" by Dorothy Norwood, "Who You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife)" by Rozetta Johnson, and "Love is Good" by Dee Irwin.

Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the obscure African Music Machine – a southern funk combo led by bassist Louis Villery – a legendary batch of funky singles, finally brought together as a full album! The band has a very unique sound that involves a lot of rolling bubbling basslines, spacey organ grooves, tight choppy guitar riffs, and punchy horn blasts – almost with the African elements promised in the title, but served up with a deeper funk sound all the way through! In a way, the group's a bit like Cymande or some of the other 70s hybrid ensembles – yet they've got a lot less dub, a much more direct funky groove, and plety of raw southern elements in the mix as well! This is the funky 45 material we first cut our teeth on back in the day – and the original singles are legendary! Includes massive cuts like "Black Water Gold (Pearl)", "A Girl In France", "Never Name A Baby (Before It's Born), "Making Nassau Fruit Drink", "Camel Time", "The Dapp", "Tropical", and "Mr. Brown".

Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! The horns take a more Afrobeat tack, too, with punchy blasts and solos peppering the numbers – in a really nice way – quite tight, but loose enough to swing, too. Tracks include "I Wanna Do My Thing", "Return To You", "Getting Together", "I Believed Her", "I Don't Have To Worry", "I Want You", "Love Is The Only Way", "Gimme Some Lovin" and more.

A killer! As revolutionary as the music and political climate was in the Bay Area in the late 60s and early 70s, it's damn near criminal that there haven't been more representative collections of the music – enter Luv N Haight Records, who are here with the first ever comprehensive compilation of Bay Area funk and hard soul! The kind of funky music that came out of the Bay in the period differs a bit from a lot of mirror sounds from the other coast, the midwest and the south –artists and groups like Sugar Pie Desanto, P-I-R Square, Marvin Holmes and the Uptights, San Francisco T.K.O and others work with short, tight, hard-clapping blasts of 45 funk. Where the funk of other scenes was designed to bounce you along an elastic groove, the Cali school for the most part specialized in short, sweaty, scratchy numbers that were designed to get you on your feet, than knock you straight on your arse! Truly amazing stuff – all funky 45 numbers, many of which are available for the first time on CD! 16 treasures: "Git Back" by Sugar Pie Desanto, "Foxy Girls In Oakland" by Rodger Collins, "Pickin' Cotton" by Johnny Talbot, "Find Yourself" by Marvin Holmes, "Check Me Out" by Kittie Denise, "Trippin' On The Sound" by Jeannie Tracie, "The Trip" by Eugene Blacknell, "Fantasy" by P-I-R Square, "Oomph" by Marvin Holmes, "Herm" by San Francisco T.K.O.'s and lots more – plus great foldout notes with details on each track.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge selection of work from the pre-reggae years in Jamaica – formative material that really runs the gamut – from jump blues, to R&B, to jazz, blues, and a whole lot more! It's a well-known fact that the rise of Jamaican music in the 60s was inspired by American radio broadcasts that were bringing the island lots of new sounds in the 50s – and while many of those sounds were interwoven into ska, rocksteady, and even reggae – the music here represents a much straighter take on American forms, with what seems to be an especially strong influence from New Orleans! The track selection is great – with early work from formative stars of the 60s, and some other under-circulated tracks that further illuminate this period – all in a collection that features 44 tracks, and notes in English and French. Titles include "Duck Soup" by Drumbago All Stars, "Bloodshot Eyes" by Denzil Laing & The Wrigglers, "Parapinto Boogie" by Lloyd Clark, "Cutest Little Woman" by Owen Gray, "Oh Carolina" by The Folks Brothers, "Boogie Rock" by Laurel Aitken, "Forty Four" by Roy Panton, "Lonely Robin" by Lascelles Perkins, "Hip Rub" by The Jiving Juniors, "Another Moses" by The Mellow Cats, "Down Beat Special" by The Blues Blasters, and "Leave Earth" by Derrick Morgan.

Philly Archives, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally cool! This CD contains a full original AM radio show from 1969 – broadcast by Sonny Hopson, aka "The Mighty Burner", one of the greatest east coast soul DJs of the 60s! Sonny's got a really wild style, and the show's a non-stop blaring blast of funky tunes, groovy commercials, and great hipster patter from Sonny. There's some great production work, and the whole thing rolls together in that great sort of total energy way that's missing from today's airwaves. Even better, though, is the chance the CD gives you to hear funky classics in their original setting – as the CD contains songs by Eddie Bo, Dyke & The Blazers, and many others. Plus, the commercials are extra-cool – as they're mostly funked up announcements for great shows and nightclubs we'd love to be able to visit. This cuts down on the actual music a bit – but the whole thing's still a totally solid record of the great years of soul, and it's a real treat to have! CD
