Average White BandFeel No Fret ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
Sure, it's not classic funky Average White Band, but the album's a great one that showcases the group's best second suit – their smooth compressed late 70s soul sound – a great evolution of their earlier groove, and one that showed them as a great mainstream soul act! The tunes are a bit mellower overall, but still have a lot of crackle and warmth – and Hamish Stuart's lost none of his vocal charm, and in fact may even sound better in a more laidback, less funky heavy setting! With the great break track "Stop The Rain" – and the cuts "When Will You Be Mine", "Please Don't Fall In Love", "Walk On By", "Feel No Fret", "Atlantic Avenue", "Ace Of Hearts", "Too Late To Cry" and "Fire Burning".

James BrownI Got You (I Feel Good) ... LP
King, 1966. Very Good- ... $13.99
Quite possibly THE James Brown album of the mid 60s – a solid set of hard-grooving tracks, based around the monster title hit "I Got You (I Feel Good)"! The tune's one of those numbers that has been used a gajillion times over the years in commercials and promos – but which never sounds better than here, on James' original version – one of those cuts that never gets old! The hit's also nicely offset by a number of other more obscure numbers that make the album really worth tracking down – titles that include "I Can't Help It (I Just Do Do Do)", "Good Good Lovin", "I've Got Money", "Three Hearts In A Tangle", "You've Got The Power", and "Love Don't Love Nobody" – all on the rougher side of the JB spectrum.

Gladys Knight & The PipsI Feel A Song ... LP
Buddah, 1974. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Rock-solid Buddah work from Gladys Knight & The Pips – still pretty righteous on the vocal tip, but often a bit fuller and more polished than before! Knight shows a great talent for a mature ballad here – no big hits, but that's part of the charm of the set – as there's a personal, intimate quality to the tunes that also comes from the less-familiar nature of the lyrics. A few more tunes get a bit uptempo – to be expected when Tony Camillo's helping with production and arrangements – and the album features the great sample cut "Don't Burn Down The Bridge", plus the tracks "I Feel A Song", "Seconds", "Love Finds Its Own Way", "Better Go Your Way", "The Goings Up & The Comings Down", "Tenderness Is His Way", and "The Need To Be".

SOULCan You Feel It ... LP
BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
Incredible work from a group who've definitely earned their name! Naming a group SOUL might be suicide for a band that can't carry off the groove – but these guys are funky monsters, with a real talent for a hard heavy sound that was rarely matched by other combos. The band have a great drummer, with a good talent for the funky break, but also a jazzy flourish that works well on SOUL's mellower numbers – and apart from the usual bass and guitar riffing, the album also features some great funky flute, in a mode that's similar to some of Jeremy Steig's excellent early work. Some tracks have vocals and some have instrumentals – but the whole album's great, and is an undisputed funky classic. Titles include "Can You Feel It", "Do What Ever You Want To Do", "Peace Of Mind", "Love, Peace & Power", and "My Cherie Amour". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil UpchurchWay I Feel ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Good+ ... $11.99
One of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Phil Upchurch – and one of the best from legendary arranger Charles Stepney too – a set that uses Upchurch's guitar in the same way that Stepney was using the piano of Ramsey Lewis in the late 60s! The record has full arrangements that are in the best late 60s Chess/Cadet style – rich, but never sleepy – with undercurrents of funk down at the bottom, and sweet backing vocals from a small group that includes Cash McCall and Kitty Haywood. But the real difference is Phil's guitar – which has some fuzzier, trippier elements – which make for a nice contrast with the smoothness of the Stepney backings, at a level that creates one of the most compelling Chess albums of the time! Titles include "Elektrik Head", "Peter Peter", "Way I Feel", "Bacn' Chips", and "You Don't Have To Know". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George DukeFeel ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet keyboards and lots of funky grooves – one of the best of George Duke's seminal albums for MPS – and a record that captures him at a key middle point in his growth! The sound here is tighter than the trippier records of before, but also never too smooth or commercial – still with plenty of cosmic influences in the funk, and a wealth of great keyboard work that rivals some of Herbie Hancock's best from the same stretch. George sings a bit himself – in a warmly compressed mode that's simply wonderful, and which further expands the grooves – and although much of the album's instrumentation comes from the keyboards, the record also features guest appearances from Airto on percussion and Ndugu on drums – as well as a bit of guest vocals from Flora Purim. Titles include "The Once Over", "Tzina", "Statement", "Love", "Feel", "Funny Funk", "Rashid", and "Cora Joberge". (Jazz, Soul) CD

Perception/Castle (UK), 1972/1974. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funkiest early work by Fatback! This 2CD set features all three of their albums for the Perception label – all brilliant funky gems that stand with some of the best funk of the early 70s. At this point, the group has a raw hard sound – mixing together choppy guitar, hard drums, and rolling bass in a style that was only matched by a rare few of their contemporaries, like Kool & The Gang or The Meters. All three albums have a bit of their own feel – from the party style of People Music, to the sweeter soul of Feel My Soul, to the straight hard funk of Let's Do It Again – and alone or together, they're some of the best funky soul you could find from the early 70s. The super-expanded set features 28 cuts in all – including the b-side only "Dance Girl", plus "Soul March", "Nija Walk", "Street Dance", "Take A Ride On The Soul Train", "Let's Do It Again", "Goin To See My Baby", "Feeling Mellow", "Feel My Soul", and "Makin Love".

✨✧ VariousSources – The P&P Records Funk & Rap Anthology (3 CD set) ... CD
P&P/Harmless (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A really really great collection of work from the legendary P&P Record labels – and one that goes way way past some of the other over-compiled work on the market! This set is really special – as it showcases first some early soul and funk that the label recorded – then moves onto document their surprisingly strong contribution to early hip hop as well – some great old school numbers that are pretty darn fresh to our ears! CD1 features 18 killer soul tracks – many with a deep soul vibe you might not expect, and which represents the label's contribution to some of the grittier sounds on the east coast scene – and not the disco that P&P is usually known for. Soul tracks include "The Greatest Debt To My Mother" by Henry Brooks, "I'm Coming Back To Life Again" by Florence Miller, "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Owen, "Black Ice" by Sons Of Darkness, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson Group, "Freaktime" by Scott Davis & The Movements, and "Long Time Ago" by Smokie Brook". CDs 2 & 3 bring together 24 old school hip hop tracks – with a few rollerskate and boogie groovers thrown in as well – and titles include "Schoolin" by Sherod, "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood, "Scoopy Rap" by Scoopy, "Family Rap" by Family, "Tricky Tee Rap" by Troy Rainey, "Game Of Life" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "Death Rap" by Margo's Coolout Crew, "Roller Rooster Rap Dance" by Fresh Female, "Sweet Naomi Rap" by Naomi Peterson, "Win Jesse Win" by Stack, and "Big Foot Boogie" by Brisko The Kidd.

A fantastic package of rare soul from the Detroit scene of the 70s – all of the extremely rare singles by Aged In Soul, brought together in an excellent triple 45 collection! The music here has a very spare, indie sort of clubby vibe – a bit like the groove over at P&P Records, but maybe a bit less disco overall – although definitely trying for the dancefloor in the mix of riffing guitar and rhythms! Vocals are often sung by more than one singer – which gives the record a bit of a righteous vibe, and this deeper spirit that really fits the compelling songs – which are all written, arranged, and produced by Arnold Moore, who put the music together. Titles include the original and disco mix of the group's classic "You're A Melody" – plus "I Feel Like Dancing", "Theme For Someone Special", "Dance Awhile", and "Trust In Me".

A&M, 1980. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
An incredible later record from Herb Alpert – working in a soulful funky fusion mode that really is well beyond the style that made him famous in the 60s! We love the easy breezy 60s sound of Herb & The Tijuana Brass too, but he really stepped up his game in exciting ways on records like Rise, and he takes some even further, previously unexplored creative steps on Beyond, this aptly titled set! Plenty of smoothed out funky fusion grooves, especially on the first half of the record, but by the midway point he's also dabbling in Spanish guitar inflected melodies, bringing in some spacey electronics and sequencing, and other daring twists – but never compromises on the consistently groovy feel overall. Includes "Kamali", "The Continental", "Reach For The Stars", "Red Hot", "Beyond", "Keep It Goin'", "The Factory" and more. CD

This one has a pretty big sound overall, all produced and arranged by Herb, who is in fine, re-energized form here. By this point, Herb could've simply coasted on nostalgia, but there's a more timeless feel on this one than on a lot of his 60s albums, honestly, and the band is really firing on all cylinders. Breezy fun on par with Herb's best of the 70s! Titles include "Coney Island", "I Have Dreamed", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Catfish", "This Masquerade", "Carmine", "Vento Bravo", "I Belong", "Senor Mouse" and more.

Alzo & UdineC'mon & Join Us! ... LP
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Wild & beautiful! This album's impossible to describe accurately, and it's the only record we've ever seen by the enigmatic Latin-tinged duo Alzo & Udine! The groove has a tight jangly feel, with nice lows, very catchy hooks, and amazing vocals from Alzo & Udine that kind of feel like Mel & Tim mixed with Joe Bataan mixed with The Young Rascals mixed with Jose Feliciano – if you need a comparison! The vocals are laid over spare arrangements that feature bass, guitar, and conga – vamping away in sort of a folk/soul groove – and although the overall approach is quite spare, the quality of the music is heavenly. At some level, the album had to have been a mistake – as it's got a whimsey and honesty that would never have gotten it on the charts – but that's exactly why we love it so much. Titles include "Something's Going", "C'Mon & Join Us", "This Room", "Want Your Love", "Hey Hey Hey, She's OK", and "Define". LP, Vinyl record album

Astors/NewcomersAstors Meet The Newcomers – Sweet Soul From Memphis ... CD
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
An excellent CD that brings together some hard to find tracks recorded by two of the few vocal groups to record for the legendary Stax label! The Astors recorded during the mid 60's, and their work has a sound that's similar to some of the classic Stax recordings during the Atlantic years, but with a feel that's a little bit rootsier. The CD includes 11 tracks by them, including "Candy", "Mystery Woman", "More Power to You", and "In the Twilight Zone". The Newcomers recorded for the label during the early 70's, but they never recorded a full album, and were lesser-known than groups that did, like the Dramatics or the Soul Children. On this CD, they lay down some tracks with a youthful, Jackson 5-type sound, and others with a more mature group soul sound. Tracks by them include "Pin The Tail On The Donkey", "The Whole World's A Picture Show", "Keep An Eye On Your Close Friends", and the great "(Too Little In Common To Be Lovers) Too Much Going On To Say Goodbye".

The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the money at all the best points! There's a number of sweet mellow ballads with lead vocals by Sharon Bryant, and other tracks that groove in an uptempo way that points towards more of the group's 80s work – a great mix of modes that makes for a really well-developed album right out of the gate. Titles include "Gimme Your Lovin", "The Love I Never Had", "Visions", "Keep It Comin", "Stand Up", "Where There's Smoke There's Fire", "We Got It Together", and "Being In Love With You Is So Much Fun".

Of all the lost club classic groups we've stocked over the years, Atmosfear has probably been the most in-demand, and has garnered a huge amount of interest for their early mix of electronics and club grooves, in a brilliantly spacey way that prefigures lots of today's techno and happy hardcore grooves. The folks at Mr. Bongo put together this fab set of remixes to pay tribute to the genius of Atmosfear – and they've got some pretty darn good help on the project, from famous guests like Masters At Work, Francois K, Idjut Boys, and Dimitri From Paris. The set's got nice remakes/reworkings of Atmosfear classics, like "Dancing In Outer Space", "Too Spaced Out", "Alternative II", "Extract", "Feel Up", and "Motivation".

Polydor/Verve, 1974. Used ... $6.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers' early years with Polygram – often overlooked amidst some of the bigger records in the catalog, but a very soulful set that's got some wonderful funky numbers! There's a really jazzy feel going on here – Roy's nod back to his older roots in music, touched with some of the sharper styles of the 70s generations – especially in the rhythms, which are starting to have that snapping sound that was the Ayers trademark in the 70s. Vibes ring out wonderfully throughout – often getting more space than vocals – and other instrumentation includes soprano sax from George Braith, keyboards from Harry Whitaker and Leon Pendarvis, and drums from Bernard Purdie. Bits of strings slide in nicely, showing a deeper sound to Roy's arranging skills – and titles include the funky break classic "The Boogie Back", a sweet reading of "Feel Like Makin' Love", with all the right electric effects to get the best out of the song's mellow righteous vibe – and the great cuts "Fishika", "Sensitize", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "When is Real Real?", and "Change Up The Groove".

Polydor, 1976. Used ... $3.99
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused Roy Ayers sound that's totally great, and which makes the album sparkle wonderfully throughout! All aspects of Roy's talents are perfectly balanced here – his warm vocals and jazzy vibes, his uptempo grooves and mellower rhythms – played to perfection by a hip lineup of players that includes Philip Woo on electric piano, Justo Almario on tenor sax, and Steve Cobb on drums. Edwin Birdsong guests a bit on the record – bringing in a nice edge to a few tunes – the album's got a really unique dark undercurrent, even in smoother moments – that subtle Roy Ayers' approach that's always made him one of our all-time favorite artists. Titles include the wonderful jazz-tinged "Searching", a great midtempo stepper that we really love; the funky break track "The Memory", a righteous number that feels like work from earlier records; the clubby classic "One Sweet Love to Remember"; and the sweet instrumental "Vibrations", which has a mellow kickback feel! Other tunes include "Higher", "Domelo (Give It To Me)", "Baby I Need Your Love", and "Better Days". CD

These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

The album's got a tight bass-heavy approach to the music – the well-forged ensemble sound that graced the later years of the Bar-Kays' career, with nary a note out of place, and a sweet blend of keyboards over the bass, giving the tunes a strong electric feel – gliding wonderfully over romping rhythms on the upbeat tracks, and stepping sweetly on the album's few mellow gems. Titles include "Tripping Out", "Propositions", "Anticipation", "Do It (Let Me See You Shake)", "She Talks To Me With Her Body", and "You Made A Change In My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players at their best, there's still plenty of sharp edges and deeply funky moments on the record – and if anything, the shift has really given The Bar-Kays a way to evolve their sound past some of the heavier modes of the early days, without losing any of the appeal of their groove! Some cuts have some great keyboards – almost producing a spacey funk feel at points – and titles include "Too Hot To Stop (part 1)", "You're So Sexy", "Cozy", "Spellbound", "Whitehouseorgy", and the nice mellow track "Summer Of Our Love".

George BensonErotic Moods ... LP
Paul Winley, Early 70s/1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Wild and mysterious stuff! This album is sort of a repackaged version of the legendary Harlem Underground album – a great lost funk album from the mid-70s that listed George Benson as a player in the group, but one that Benson claims that he never played on! The time of this release coincided with Benson's big hit years in the 70s – so the package is a bit of a cash-in project – but the grooves here are a lot harder-hitting than anything George recorded for Warner or Columbia – really gritty funk that's totally great throughout! Other players include Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Reuben Wilson on keyboards, and Willis Jackson on tenor – and Ann Winley sings on one track, the great "Fed Up", which has a really bad-rapping feel! Other titles include the classic break track "Smokin' Cheeba Cheeba" – plus a few smokin' organ/guitar wailers, like "Loose Joints" and "Overture Erotic", both of which are nice enough to warrant this separate release! Other tracks include "Erotic Moods" and "Sweet Taste Of Love". (Jazz, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonErotic Moods ... LP
Paul Winley, Early 70s/1978. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wild and mysterious stuff! This album is sort of a repackaged version of the legendary Harlem Underground album – a great lost funk album from the mid-70s that listed George Benson as a player in the group, but one that Benson claims that he never played on! The time of this release coincided with Benson's big hit years in the 70s – so the package is a bit of a cash-in project – but the grooves here are a lot harder-hitting than anything George recorded for Warner or Columbia – really gritty funk that's totally great throughout! Other players include Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Reuben Wilson on keyboards, and Willis Jackson on tenor – and Ann Winley sings on one track, the great "Fed Up", which has a really bad-rapping feel! Other titles include the classic break track "Smokin' Cheeba Cheeba" – plus a few smokin' organ/guitar wailers, like "Loose Joints" and "Overture Erotic", both of which are nice enough to warrant this separate release!

✨✧ Bionic BoogieBionic Boogie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/FTG, 1977. Used ... $12.99
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy undercurrent that really keeps things interesting – far more so than most other mainstream disco sets of the time! Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company – handled the arrangements – and the grooves spin out nicely from Diamond's keyboards, and a tight mix of strings and jazzy horns. Vocals are from the soulful trio of Gwen Guthrie, Ullanda McCullough, and Zachary Sanders – and titles include "Dance Little Dreamer", "Risky Changes", "Boogie Boo", "We Must Believe In Music", "Feel Like Dancing", and "Don't Lose The Number". CD features 2 bonus tracks – 12" extended mixes of "Dance Little Dreamer" and "Risky Changes". CD

Black HeatKeep On Runnin' ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove! The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight approach to ensemble funk that really sits proudly with the best of the Kool & The Gang/Fatback generation – with some sweet Afro-inspired touches as well! The organ on the set is especially nice – played by Johnell Grey, and bubbling up nicely underneath the horns – and the drums from Esco Cromer have a wicked kick too, even on some of the album's mellower cuts. Titles include the killer break cut "Zimba Ku", plus "Questions & Conclusions", "Love", "Prince Duval", "Feel Like A Child", "Keep On Runnin", and a nice funky version of "Drive My Car". CD

BlackbyrdsFlying Start ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel – tight enough to crossover somewhat big with a larger audience than the group's previous effort – but still filled with the kind of righteous energy that first got them going, a sublime mix of jazzy rhythms and soulful elements, all held together tightly by production from Donald Byrd. Tracks include the big hit "Walking In Rhythm", which was an oft-spun 45 back in the day – plus some great funk moments, like the tasty "Spaced Out", the choppy "The Baby", and the captivating "Blackbyrds Theme". Other cuts include "Future Children Future Hopes", "I Need You", and "April Showers". LP, Vinyl record album
