✨✧ CL BlastLay Another Log On The Fire – The Complete Juana Sessions 1976 to 1984 ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Modern southern soul from CL Blast – a singer who took his music into great new territory during the time covered on this set! CL was a vocalist with roots in much bluesier modes, but at the end of the 70s, working with producer Frederick Knight, he really hit his stride in hipper, more contemporary styles – using an approach that was a bit like the updated Johnnie Taylor sound over at Columbia, but still somewhat more southern overall! There's a mix of Miami and Malaco vibes going on here – the tightness of the former but without the too-contemporary styles of the latter – and although Knight's production (plus a bit of help from Sam Dees) really sets the tone of the tunes, it's Blast's vocals that send the whole thing home. CD features 20 tracks in all, plus great notes on the music – with titles that include "Don't Fight The Feelin", "Beautiful Lover", "I Wanna Get Down", "50/50 Love", "Boomerang Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Drown In My Own Tears", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "If I Had Loved You More", "Share You Love With Me", and "Lay Another Log On The Fire".

VariousWardell Quezerque – Sixty Smokin' Soul Senders ... CD
Funky Delicacies, 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A wealth of rare New Orleans soul – and a great package dedicated to the work of producer Wardell Quezerque! The 2CD, 60 track set is chock-full of wonderful numbers – great singles that have been remastered and which feature a mixture of better known singers – like Eddie Bo or CL Blast – plus a host of other talents we'd never heard before. The "smokin" in the title is certainly well-placed, as the package is overstuffed with great tunes that you'd have to spend a lifetime of digging through singles bins to find. Tracks include "Poor Sam" by Earl King, "99.44% Pure Love", "What Can I Do" by CL Blast, "Soul Train" by Curley Moore, "Patty Cake Shake" by Guitar Ray, "You Are Going To Be Somebody's Fool Too" by Eddie Bo, "I Believe In Miracles" by Jerry Foucha, "Can You Forgive Me" by Earl Harrison, "Everybody Dance" by Lydia Marcelle, "Lucky Fellow" by The Jades, "Can't Stay Away" by The Fabulettes", and "Make Up Your Mind" by Vic Cornish.

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 (with bonus track) ... CD
A&M/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD also features the bonus single mix of "Ride-O-Rocket". CD

DynastyAdventures In The Land Of Music ... LP
Solar, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
Lots of musical adventures here – most of them in that tightly-romping style that made Dynasty so great back in the day – almost a fusion of older sweet group soul with some of the more bottom-driven modes forged by the Solar label! The title cut here is our favorite – a sweet stepper that bursts out with this blast of sound that's totally great – completely captivating, and filled with cascading sounds that really grab us. Other tracks include "Ice Breaker", "Something To Remember", "Day & Night", "Do Me Right", and "I've Just Begun To Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ King CurtisKing Curtis Live At Fillmore West ... LP
Atco, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
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"! LP, Vinyl record album

Trouble FunkTrouble Over There ... LP
Island, 1987. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The one group most synonymous with Go Go in a major label effort, from just past their peak in the mid 80s. Like many of the mainstream efforts by Go Go groups, this LP's a bit cleaned up, and features songs in a much shorter format than what makes them work on the indy releases, but the producers always seem to let just enough of the Go Go magic shine through, with in your face synth bits, unison horn blasts and heavy percussion allover the place. 8 tracks in all: "Trouble", "Woman Of Principle", "Hey Tee Bone", "All Over The World", "Stroke", "New Money", "Sexy" and "Break It Up".

Con Funk ShunCandy ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
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

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

✨✧ Eddie FloydSoul Street ... LP
Stax, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funkier than usual for Eddie – with a sound that's almost in the same sort of mode that the Staple Singers were using at the time. There are hard drums underneath, warm electric keyboards on many cuts and a range of vocal styles by Eddie that show him pushing past the cliches of earlier records. A few numbers almost have him singing in an Al Green kind of mode – adding an intimate quality that makes us respect him more than when he's just blasting out his older stock "Knock On Wood" type numbers. Titles include "Soul Street", "Guess Who", "Your Love is Amazin'", "Stealing Love", and "I Am So Glad I Met You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kashmere Stage BandTexas Thunder Soul 1968 to 1974 ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive exploration of the music of Kashmere Stage Band – the legendary Texas funk combo whose work has been pushed heavily over the years by Wax Poetics, Stones Throw, and many others! The double-length set goes even deeper than any of the vinyl reissues of work by the group – and features some previously unreleased tracks, alternate takes on their funkiest numbers, and a full 10 extra live tracks never heard before! The Kashmere groove is incredible – blasting horns, scratchy guitars, and funky drums – all wrapped super-tight around a range of original material and some more familiar numbers – all recast here in super-heavy funk mode! Studio tracks include "All Praises", "Thank You", "Scorpio (extended)", "Do Your Thing", "Headwiggle", "Do You Dig It Man", "Getting It Out Of My System", "Zero Point (parts 1 & 2)", "Boss City", "Burning Spear", "Take Five", and "Keep Doing It". Live tracks include "Zero Point", "Don't Mean A Thing", "Thank You", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "All Praises" – and the set also features a huge amount of detailed notes and photos, plus a full bonus documentary entitled "Texas Jewels"!

✨✧ Kay-GeesKeep On Bumpin' & Masterplan ... CD
Gang/Unidisc, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
