✨✧ African Music MachineBlack Water Gold ... LP
Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
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".

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".

Con Funk ShunCandy ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
Con Funk Shun really hit a tight groove on this one – late 70s dancefloor funk at its finest – and a turning point for the group that set the scene for 80s grooves to come! The killer group vocals, thumping funk bass and punctuating horn blasts are in full effect, and the group is also starting to work more with synthesizers and electronic sound washes – the spacey touches blending perfectly with their tried-and-true funk. A great batch of tunes, well-produced by the group and Skip Scarborough, and ear-pleasing tunes all the way – sparkling with a great blend of bassy funk and smooth ballads! Tracks include "Fire When Ready", "Chase Me", "Not Ready", "Da Lady", "Candy" and "(Let Me Put) Love On Your Mind", "Main Slice" and "Images". CD

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

ParliamentUp For The Down Stroke ... LP
Casablanca, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The first album that Parliament cut after their trippy fuzzed-out headblast Osmium. The record features a much more stripped down sound – nice and funky, with a blueprint of the bass-driven groove that would dominate the P-Funk sound of the 70s. Bootsy's on bass, and the group features Eddie Hazel, Bernie Worrell, and other likely suspects. Includes the monster jammer "Up For The Down Stroke", plus other goodies like "The Goose", "Testify", "Presence Of A Brain", and "All Your Goodies Are Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Southside MovementMoving South ... LP
20th Century, 1975. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Heavy heavy funk from this lost Chicago group – an undisputed powerhouse in the mid 70s, and one of the city's few funky combos to really break out to a national audience! The album's the group's second, and is oddly even more obscure than their first – and it's a stone cold blend of fuzzy guitars, stepping basslines, horn blasts – somewhere between early Kool & The Gang and some of the doper group soul records of the time. Includes a great remake of the group's classic "I've Been Watching You" – redone here from the first album, with cool electric piano bits sounding a lot like a lost Wu-Tang sample – plus the cuts "Funk Talk", "Just Moving", "Do It to Me", and "Ain't It A Shame".

ZoomBlasting Off ... LP
MCA, 1983. Very Good ... $6.99
The second album from Zoom – and even more obscure than the first! By this point, the group have picked up some wonderful 80s touches – and are using enough keyboards and electronics in their groove that they might well be termed an electro-funk act. The vocals are still quite strong, and if anything, the counterpoint between the strong funk harmonies and the "wheeet" of the electrics really gives them a sound that's even better than before! Titles include "Next Door Neighbors", "Blasting Off", "Sexy Sassy", "Ready To Roll", "Give It All I've Got", "If You Don't Want To Party Go Home", and "Let Your Fingers Do The Walking".

✨✧ Dennis CoffeyBlack Belt Jones – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
