Donald ByrdThank You For FUML (Funkin Up My Life) ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title! Byrd loostens up the smoother backgrounds of his recent Larry Mizell helmed work, and in their place are grooves that have more of a heavy slap bass sound, punchier horns and guitars! There are lotes nice moments that are a bit more restrained than the comparably full-on funk approach – and these have a spacey fusiony soul quality that reminds us of similar work that Byrd was doing with The Blackbyrds at the time. One of the best cuts is "Your Life Is My Ecstasy", which has some great bubbling Moog behind it, which creates a sound that you've heard sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest. Other nice ones are "Loving You", which features vocals by Jim Gilstrap, and a remake of Duke Pearson's "Cristo Redentor", a big hit for Don in the 60s, which is redone here in an excellent slow funk mode that feels like Bob James' work on CTI. Others include "Have You Heard The News", "In Love With Love" and "Close Your Eyes And Look Within". (Jazz, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy Castor BunchPhase Two ... LP
RCA, 1972. Very Good ... $4.99
Probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record. The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! LP, Vinyl record album

James GilstrapLove Talk ... LP
Roxbury, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The second album by Jim Gilstrap – a singer who did an awful lot of studio work for other folks during the 70s, and who scored a minor hit with his own "Swing Your Daddy", which was on the first album. This set's a bit more far-reaching, with arrangements by Gene Page that are kind of in a Barry White/Van McCoy expanded soul mode, which pushes Jim past the sweet soul of earlier days. Side one features the extended "Love Talk", a 13 minute number with lots of strings and grooves – not disco, but more of the baroque soul of Isaac Hayes or Barry White. Side two features three shorter cuts – two in a similar mode, "Never Stop Loving Me" and "Move Me", plus a great mellow soul remake of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys KnightMiss Gladys Knight ... LP
Buddah, 1978. Sealed ... $4.99
Gladys Knight steps out on her own – in her very first solo album, after years of recording with The Pips! The change has maybe a bit more focus on Knight's incredible vocals in the lead, but the approach is also strongly similar to the best work with The Pips at the same period – with the Jim Gilstrap singers providing backup vocals, but at a lighter level, with less harmonies that soar out – so that Knight really carries the tunes in a wonderful way. Most tracks are in that mellow mode that Gladys was really doing so well in the 70s – and titles include "I'm Coming Home Again", "I'm Still Caught Up With You", "The Way It Was", "I'll Take a Melody", "Love Gives You The Power", and "Sail Away/Freedom For The Stallion".

✨✧ Loggins & MessinaFull Sail ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
A great mix of sophisticated pop and lighter, more tropical numbers – and one of the best albums ever to emerge from the union of Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina! The album's got a special place in our heart, thanks to the classic tune "Pathway To Glory" – an extended, slow-building number that's bee a huge stepper's favorite here in Chicago over the years – and a great illustration of the genre-crossing nature of the stepping scene at its best. Other tunes have a style that's right up there with the best LA mainstream approach of the early 70s – never too slick or too smooth, and still with enough sensitivity to make you buy into the whole thing. Other tracks include "Pathway To Glory", "Lahaina", "My Music", "A Love Song", "Coming To You", "Watching The River Run", and "Didn't I Know You When". LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
Great sounds from a series that's always got us Feeling Nice – thanks to its never-ending array of rare funk and soul tracks from the glory days of the scene! The work here goes way past the obvious – and given that Tramp's been giving us some of the best funky 45 reissues for over a decade, the label's very well-poised to dig up the kind of rare nuggets that often put most other compilations of this nature to shame – cuts that have yet to be discovered, collected, and sampled by most of the rest of us! The groove is unstoppable throughout, and the cuts are the best sort of rare funky 45s – tight, short, and packing a hell of a punch – that sound that only came from deep deep deep in the American underground at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Basement Jam" by TNT Powerhouse, "Walkin The Duck" by Jim Pipkin & Boss Five, "Wake Me Up" by George Johnson, "Big Bear" by Big Bear Revue, "The Swimming Monkey" by Harold Andrews & The Sha-Bangs, "It Ain't What You Do" by Little Caesar & The Euterpeans, "Karate" by Mr Clean & The Cleansers, "Strut Your Stuff" by Donald Ray & Revue, "Shing-A-Ling Baby" by Donnie Sanders & Don Juans, "What About Mars" by Moony Moon, "Silver Black Summer Day" by Living Funk, and "No That Ain't Groovy" by Al Sinclair.

BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5LP ... $69.99 74.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 1 features five different records, all with lots of space for the tunes to stretch out – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, and "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney.

✨✧ Rodney FranklinLearning To Love ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rodney Franklin's learning to love – and he's learning to groove, too – by adding in just a bit more vocals to his music than before, but still holding onto all the best keyboard strengths of the past! Franklin was really one of the leading lights of the Columbia Records jazz scene of the time – an exceptionally strong artist, and very much his own spirit – yet sadly not as remembered these days as contemporaries like Lonnie Liston Smith or Herbie Hancock. Yet Rodney's got all the range of both of those artists – the same ability to mix jazz, funk, fusion, and soul – the last of which he does here wonderfully, with help from singers Jim Gilstrap, Howard Smith, and Darryl Phinnessee. Yet at the heart of all the tracks are Rodney's nice soulful keyboards – which have the same smooth feel as Bobby Lyle's from the same time – and the same ability to blend wonderfully with lyrics and other instrumentation. The record was produced by Stanley Clarke – and titles include the great "Enuff Is Enuff" – the theme from the early 80s blacksploitation flick One Down Two To Go – plus "Sonshine", "Learning To Love", "Don't Wanna Let You Go", "Sailing", and "That's The Way I Feel Bout Your Love".

✨✧ Martha ReevesMartha Reeves ... LP
MCA, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Martha Reeves' first solo album for MCA – an all-out studio affair that's quite different from her classic 60s work for Motown! The album's done in a way that really focuses on the deepest side of Martha's vocals – in a way that goes for the sort of "rootsy" soul that was cropping up heavily on majors at the start of the 70s – well-recorded in LA studio sessions, but featuring styles that were decidedly down-homey. Players on the album include Billy Preston, Dennis Doffey, Joe Sample, and Arthur Adams – all of whom bring a tightly professional focus to the backings – and Martha's helped on backup vocals by both Clydie King and Jim Gilstrap. Titles include "Power Of Love", "My Man", "Sweet Misery", "Wild Night", "You've Got Me For Company", "Storm In My Woul", "Facsimilie", and "Many Rivers To Cross". CD also features bonus tracks "Stand By Me", "Our Day Will Come", and "I Sure Do Love You" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHenry Stone's Miami Sound – The Record Man's Finest 45s ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of music we've ever heard from the legendary TK Records in Miami – a company that was a powerhouse of 70s hits and disco classics – but which also cut some wonderful underground soul at the time! This sublime set looks at that great lesser-known legacy of TK – the hipper, more sophisticated music they cut in between the chart numbers and boogie singles – often by soul artists who had some involvement with bigger acts, but who really got a chance here to shine on their own! There's a surprising amount of funk in the mix – that deeper current that made Miami a key heir to 60s funky styles from Memphis and New Orleans – and there's some equally great modern soul, but served up with a complexity that goes way past the usual – both in the songwriting and arrangements. If you've only heard TK hit collections, you'll find plenty to love here – and even for deeper diggers like us, there's still plenty of new bits to be discovered! Titles include "Confusion" by Leno Phillips, "You Knock Me Out" by Wildflower, "Hey There Jim" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Tears Of The World" by Robert Moore, "I Got Bills To Pay" by Johnny K, "I Want To Be Loved" by Stevens & Foster, "Sleep On Dream On" by Raphael Munnings, "Life Is A Beautiful Feeling" by Formula 1, "Bahama Soul Stew" by Funky Nassau, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "The Silence That You Keep (version 1)" by Milton Wright, and "There Must Be Something" by Friday Saturday & Sunday.

All Platinum/Expansion (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic sweet soul album – and one of our favorite records ever from the New Jersey soul empire of All-Platinum Records! The set's got a spacey soul sound that's really wonderful – quite different than some of the clubbier modes that other female singers were using at the time – and the record features both production and songwriting work by Harry Ray and Al Goodman of The Moments, who give Retta Young the same sweet touch they brought to their own excellent records for the label! The album's one of those really special female soul sets that goes way beyond expectation or familiar modes – a record we'd put right up there with other rare classics by singers like Ann Sexton or Gloria Scott. Titles include "I Love My Jim", "Now Or Never", "We're So In Love", "Really Really", "My Love Is On His Way", and "Let's Make Up For Lost Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1976. Very Good ... $9.99
Jimmy Castor's looking mighty butch on the cover of this one – what with the leather and motorcycle in the photo – and he's bringing all that energy to play strongly on the album's heavy heavy funk tracks! The record's a great extension of the funky style that Castor first started forging at RCA – touches with plenty of Jimmy's multi-instrumental touches on tenor, alto, and timbales – and given that great monster-inspired approach to lyrics – which ensures that the whole thing stays plenty vivid throughout! Vocals are nice and rough, and the instrumentation is heavy on basslines and clavinet – on titles that include the two part "Dracula", plus "Super Love", "I Love A Mellow Groove", "E Man Groovin", "I Don't Want To Lose You", and "Space Age".

Smash, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An excellent bit of Latin groove – one of our favorite crossover boogaloo sets from the 60s, and easily some of the greatest work ever by Jimmy Castor! And yes, this is the same Jimmy Castor who's known for his funk albums of the 70s – but back in the day, he was open-minded enough to work in genres that included doo wop, harmony soul, and Latin – the last of which he does surprisingly well! The album's got a wonderfully earthy Spanish Harlem groove throughout – heard most famously on the title hit – "Hey Leroy", a fierce romp with a heavy piano groove that's clearly inspired by the work of Joe Cuba – but burning hard throughout on a variety of groovy covers and hard-hitting originals! Lots of piano, searing sax, snapping percussion, and humorous lyrics – and tracks include "Ham Hocks Espagnole", "Our Day Will Come", "Hey Willie", and "Southern Fried Frijoles".

The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! If you've ever bought a lousy Jimmy Castor album – throw it away, and buy this one! LP, Vinyl record album

An early classic from vocalist Jimmy Sabater – one of the greatest singers of the New York scene, and a vocalist who was equally talented with both English and Spanish lyrics! The record's got a nicely soulful feel – not really Latin Soul, but in the kind of sophisticated approach that some of the hipper 60s jazz singers were using, all filtered through Joe Cuba's sweet small combo sound – which means there's some great vibes and percussion in the backing. Titles include "I Still Love You", "To Be With You", "Caress Me", "Funny", "Mia", and "The More I See You". (Latin, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Cherrelle's got a voice that's perfect for the beat-heavy approach of the pair – light enough to dance around the rhythms, but bold enough with a presence all its own, too – a quality that helps keep most of these tunes pretty darn catchy, while still staying in front of some of the blander mainstream soul of the time. The groove here is practically early new jack at times – with some great influences from hip hop and electro in the mix – and titles include "Looks Aren't Everything", "Affair", "Discreet", "Everything I Miss At Home", "Keep It Inside", "My Friend", and "What More Can I Do For You".

The sound and style is very similar to Otis' work for Stax during the 60s – but the album was recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, with engineering by Jimmy Johnson, and it's got a bit of a different sound from the Memphis soul of Otis' records. There's more horns, and less organ and guitars, and Conley's vocals are produced in a raw style that brings out the best of his work.

The sound on this record has little in common with the early rock instrumentals that the Fireballs made their name burning through. This set is more of a catchy jangly sunshine rock record, with the tight Fireball rhythm section, plus some Stax-influenced horns, easy garage organ and keys, and groovy vocals by Gilmer. Tracks include "3 Minutes' Time", "Ain't That Rain", "Where Can We Be Found?", "Bottle Of Wine", "Mason Street", "Groovy Motions", "Goin' Away", "Barbara White", "A Girl As Perfect As You" and more.

Carolyn FranklinIf You Want Me ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Excellent work by Carolyn Franklin – a heavy album of female soul with a sound that should have made it huge! Carolyn is the less-famous sister of Aretha Franklin – but she's got a voice that keeps the family proud, and she's a lot hipper than Aretha on this album – with a very badass groove that mixes deep soul and funk! The set features arrangements by Sonny Saunders, Wade Marcus, Franklin & Spear, and Jimmy Radcliffe, who also produced the set with Carolyn – and this range of studio help really keeps things fresh, while Franklin's massive vocals are nicely up front to hold the whole thing together. Features the great funky track "Deal With It" – which has a sublime funky intro, and a great groove that puts it right up there with the best of the heavy soul sister tracks from the early 70s! Other tracks include "Dead Man", "Song Man", "If You Want Me", "Can't Help My Feeling So Blue", "Too Many Roads", and "Sunshine Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

Free MovementI've Found Someone Of My Own ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good ... $5.99
Righteous soul from The Free Movement – a mixed male/female harmony group with a feel that's similar to The Fifth Dimension or The Friends Of Distinction, but a bit hipper! The group have a sunny feel that's quite nice – soaring harmonies reaching to the top of the groove on the best cuts, rolling around in a positive, soulful style that still holds up strongly over the years. Arrangements are by Michael Omartin, Jimmie Haskell, and Toxey French – and the record includes their hit "I've Found Someone Of My Own", plus "Son of The Zulu King", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "The Harder I Try (The Bluer I Get)". LP, Vinyl record album
