Jimmy HughesSteal Away (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Vee Jay/Kent (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Stellar work by Jimmy Hughes – one of those southern soul talents whose name you've heard, but can't always find on record! Jimmy's best known for his classic Muscle Shoals tune "Steal Away" – and that great number, plus many other similar ones, are presented on this obscure Vee Jay release – issued at a time when both that label and Chess were licensing a number of titles from Rick Hall's Fame studios. The sound is great – a key link in the southern scene of the 60s, and one that's often lost because it wasn't recorded for a bigger label, like Atlantic. Titles include "Steal Away", "Try Me", "I Want Justice", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Neighbor Neighbor", "I'm Getting Better", and "I'm Gonna Rise Again". LP, Vinyl record album

George JacksonFame Sessions (colored vinyl) ... LP
Fame/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
What the what?!? Soul sides so great they'll blow your mind – even though none of them have ever been issued before! George Jackson is one of the great lost talents of southern soul – an artist who often stayed in the background, lending his talents to others in the studio, or as a writer – but a hell of a strong artist on his own – as you'll hear in this package of 24 recordings done at the legendary Fame Studios! Jackson's vocals are great – nice and gritty, plain and honest, and with just the right sort of focus to perfectly serve up the poetry of his lyrics. And the backings are wonderful, too – that simple, soulful groove that Fame did so well – often slow-burning on the rhythm tip, with production that lets George shine right out front in the mix. Why these cuts were never issued at the time is a mystery to us – as they could have made George and a few other folks a nice little fortune and a good deal of fame. But as with most discoveries like this, the obscurity of the tracks also makes for a freshness that we love too – as if we've taken a time machine back to a period we love, and found a way to hear the "real deal" right up close! Special LP version – featuring a dozen tracks from the Fame CDs – including "Greedy Over You", "Double Lovin", "Don't Count Me Out", "Save Me", "That From The Heart", "Add A Little Sunshine", "Let The Best Man Win", "I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew", and "Bite The Hand That Feeds You".

Jerry Walker with Rudy Ray MooreFairy Godmother ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the crazy messed-up party comedy albums issued by Kent during their big years with Rudy Ray Moore. The Jerry Walker material is pretty decent, and is the kind of raunchy material you'd expect from titles like "Eat Where You Want To", "Let's Take It Upstairs", and "I'm Coming". But the real highlight is a nice funky instrumental from Rudy and the Soul Rebellion orchestra entitled "Put Your Weight On It". The track's extra-tasty, with a good hard funk sound, and we don't think it's on any other album! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Ultra-hip soul from the 70s – a brilliant collection of underground tunes that represents some of the best of the decade's indie scene! The title says "modern", but the groove here is also pretty darn deep – as many of the tracks on the set have nice touches of southern soul, despite the smoother 70s production overall. Vocals are extremely heartfelt, and most tracks are in a mellow or midtempo pace – making for a really wonderful batch of tunes that moves away from the more uptempo and clubby sounds you might hear on other modern soul compilations. This special LP pressing brings together tracks from the CD series – a number of which were never issued on vinyl, even back in the day – and two unreleased tracks appear here for the first time ever! Titles include "Gotta Be Loved (part 2)" by Herman Davis, "Never Felt This Way Before" by The New Experience, "Go Away" by The Hestitations, "Momma Had A Baby" by Street People, "Do You Really Love Me" by Darondo, "I Don't Play Games" by Nightchill, "Just A Little Ugly" by Gail Anderson, "It's The Same Old Story" by Act 1, "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right" by The Mayberry Movement, "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Billups & The CCCs, and "If There Were No You" by The Natural Resources.

✨✧ Johnny Otis ShowCold Shot ... LP
Kent, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Man, we don't know if Johnny and show were growing their own weed in the back of the tour bus or what – but these late 60s efforts for the band are nice and messed up! The tipoff's probably a young Shuggie, looking very stoned on the cover, and just managing to hold up his fingers for a peace sign! (Better than Johnny, though – who's flipping the bird in the same photo!) Shuggie still manages to get in some nice guitar work on the album, though - and Mighty Mouth Evans adds some color to the proceedings with his usual flair. Titles include "Country Girl", "Cold Shot", "I Believe I'll Go Back Home", "You Better Look Out", and "Goin' Back To LA". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard this strongly on record again until the hip hop generation. The music's often mixed a bit lower than the vocals, but is still present enough to make things sound funky – and titles include the classic "Mr Big Dick", plus "The Gorillas Are Coming", "California Poetry", "Hurricane Anne Meets Dolemite", and "40 Pounds of Chitlings". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Dancers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features upbeat Northern Soul gems that were issued on small labels like Topper and Demo-Ristic – mixed with other tracks that lay in Dave's vaults until their discovery at some point in the 90s! Together, the tracks are a wonderful illustration of the deep deep trove of material that lurked in the Detroit scene far in the shadows of Motown – artists who were eclipsed by the big names at the time, but who sound mighty darn fresh all these many years later. Titles include "What Should I Do", and "Who Are You Trying To Fool" by Little Ann, "Sweep It Out The Shed" and "Challenge My Love" by Tobi Lark, "Love Friends & Money" by James Lately, "You Won't Miss The Water" by Chico & Buddy, "Talkin About My Baby" by Dottie & Millie, "You Got Me Turned Around" by OC Tolbert, "Shoop Doop" by Dave Hamilton, and "You Did" by Priscilla Page & Rony Darrell.

VariousDisco Love 4 – More More More Disco & Soul Uncovered ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 27.99
There's plenty to love here, and the groove is way more than just the disco promised in the title – and instead this sublime array of funky soul, modern soul, and lots other soul styles too! The tunes are definitely upbeat, but they're not slavishly tied to disco – and instead really represent the great array of groove-centric work that was bubbling in the American underground in the late 70s and early 80s – as soul singers worked with a variety of different rhythms to come up with the kind of cuts that still sound plenty fresh all these many years later! Legendary collector/DJ Al Kent put the package together – and also contributed a few re-edits to a few tracks, to help extend their best elements. Titles include "I Found Love" by Lee Edwards, "Call Me" by Symbol 8, "If It Feels This Good" by Barbara Jean English, "Things Got To Get Better" by Genobia Jeter, "I'd Rather Leave On My Feet" by Emanuel Lansky, "Prophesy" by Betty Everett, "A Slong For You" by Fresh Fruit, and "Looking Over My Shoulder" by Marva Hicks – and the set also features Al Kent re-edits of "Equal Love Opportunity" by Clear, "Love Is Gone" by Mary Mundy, "I Wanna Give You Everything" by Hazel Rambaransingh, "Running Away From Love" by Skip Mahoaney & The Casuals, and "Keep On Loving You" by Perfect Touch.

WVON/Chess, 1969. Very Good- ... $3.99
Legendary compilation album of 60s soul tracks, put together by the staff of Chicago radio station WVON, in loving tribute to Leonard Chess, of Chess Records, who owned the station. The package has nice photos of the station's DJs on the back – including Herb "Kool Gent" Kent, E. Rodney Jones, and Don "Soul Train" Cornelius. The titles are darn nice, too – and include "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "But It's Alright" by JJ Jackson, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "Uh Uh Boy That's A No No" by Candy Love, and "Stay In My Corner" by the Dells.

✨✧ Stanton Davis' Ghetto MysticismIsis Voyage ... LP
Outrageous/Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great counterpart to the rare Stanton Davis Ghetto Mysticism album – and a set that was recorded right around the same time, with a number of previously unreleased tracks! The spiritual energy of that group has been well-loved by collectors for years – and enjoyed by others thanks to a recent reissue – and this sweet batch of rare cuts really augments that rare musical moment, by offering up a further set of completely cosmic grooves! The style is spacey jazz funk with some deeper elements in the mix – all recorded and arranged with an indie vibe that reminds us a lot of the classic Oneness Of Juju albums on Black Fire, but without as much vocals – just a strong focus on the sweet keyboard lines and soaring horn passages. Some tracks are brand new, others are different versions of themes from the Brighter Days album – and titles include "Delta Six/Brighter Days", "Isis Voyage", "Odwalla", "Things Can Not Stop Forever (Al Kent version)", "High Jazz (reprise – alt mix)", "Things Cannot Stop Forever (inst mix)", and "Funky Fried Tofu (alt inst version)".

✨✧ VariousCatch Action – The Sophisticated Boogie Funk Of Sheridan House Records (6LP box set) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 6LP ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of funky club tracks from Sheridan House Records – a later effort from Cali maestro Kent Harris – who'd previously given us some excellent soul singles in the 60s and 70s! The style here is less disco than it is an update of Harris' earlier soul music approach – served up with a similar emphasis on female singers, who get a really earnest, honest setting for their music – way more than just the usual disco diva modes! And the set's way more than just a compilation, too – as it's got these great notes, way more detailed than usual for Luv N Haight – which really tell the tale of the label, and the LA scene in the 70s as well. Features a huge amount of tracks – and titles include "Whip It On Me" by Deborah Foster, "Real Love" by Back To Back, "This Feeling Between Us" by Something Unique, "I'm Gonna Be Your Lover" by Jeanette Renee, "High School Love Affair" by Right Connection, "It Takes Money" by Deborah Foster, "Love Me" by Beverly Cason, "Tell Me How It Is" by Towana, "So Weak" by Tammy Hanson, "Sex" by Big Bundy, "It Takes Money" by Ty Karim, "Suspicion" by King James, "Keep On Doin Whatcha Doin" by Ty Karim & George Griffin, "Jungle Animal" by 2 Ana, and lots lots more! Very cool vinyl version – a special box set, with oversize book, and 6 albums in all! (Funky Compilations, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMovements Vol 5 – Compiled By Tobias Kirmayer ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Rare gems from the funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – and maybe the most smoking volume in this all-great series so far! The sound is hard and heavy right from the start – very much in the best mode of the funky 45 reissues we've been hearing from Tramp in recent years – right up there with the deepest funk you'd get from labels like Ace/Kent or Jazzman on their best compilations! And although other volumes have all been great, there's a special sort of magic this time around – an edge that really shows the evolution of Tramp's ear for picking a groove – and deep notes that also show their growing knowledge of the most obscure cuts from back in the day. We can guarantee there's plenty here you don't already have in your record collection – and titles include "Funky Screw" by Lee Fields, "Soul Chicken" by Bobby Allen & The Exceptions, "Ease It On In" by Sunrize, "Deepest Sympathy" by Theodis Ealey, "Tend To Your Business (parts 1 & 2)" by Wildfire, "Pat's Rubber Band" by Alley Pat, "Puttin It On Your Mind" by Jimmy Ellis, "Nobody Loves Me Like My Baby" by Jimmy Gilford, "99/44 100 Pure Love" by Al Reed, and "Monkey In A Sack" by Lil Buck & The Top Cats.

ParliamentFunkentelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome ... LP
Casablanca, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Ahhhhh . . . By this point, George Clinton and the P-Funk team were on top of the world! The record is a masterful dose of slick mothership jamming – perfectly woven together with that tightly compressed style that really served Clinton's production work well. The tracks are long, but never too loopy – and thanks to help from the Bernie Worrell, Jerome Brailey, Gary Shider, and the Horny Horns, the album stays very tight instrumentally all the way through! Loads of Parliament classics, including "Bop Gun", "Funkentelechy", "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", and the massive "Flash Light", which we've heard a million times, but which never ceases to amaze us!

ParliamentClones Of Dr Funkenstein (3D lenticular cover) ... LP

An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gwen McCraeGwen McCrae (1981) ... LP
Atlantic, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal 80s groove from 70s Miami soul star Gwen McCrae – reinventing herself here for the new decade with a totally different sound! The album's best known for the amazing club track "Funky Sensation" – one of those tracks that crossed over big, and had a huge influence in countless scenes – as the tune burned big on all fronts, including the worlds of disco, hip hop, and even roller skating! Other tunes follow in a similar format – with lots of nice snapping rhythms, thanks to arranger/composer/producer Kenton Nix – who really manages to break Gwen out of the standard Miami soul groove! The whole thing's great, and other titles include "Poyson", "All My Love", "No Deposit/No Return", "Movement", and "Have A Good Time". LP, Vinyl record album
