✨✧ VariousFunky 16 Corners ... LP
Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $15.99
One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 19 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What. (Funky Compilations, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LA CarnivalLA Carnival Would Like To Pose A Question ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet jazzy funk – from the cornbelt of Omaha! The LA Carnival are one of those rarer-than-rare funk groups who not only never got their due back in the day – but also recorded a heck of a lot of great material that never even got issued! They have a totally great sound that bubbles in jazzy licks on trumpet, sax, and organ – next to tighter, funkier vamping on the rhythms – all of which makes for a killer approach to the groove that's surprisingly fresh, given the passage of three decades since the group's heyday. And leave it to the folks at Stones Throw – who know how to dig beyond the crates, into the earth, and come up with a lost slice of funk history that has made the world a much better musical place. They've lovingly remastered these great recordings from the early 70s, and have packaged the whole thing with a well-done set of notes that really goes into detail about this unique group, their amazing sound, and their obscure Nebraska origins! An instant funk essential – and one you'll be thanking yourself for buying for years to come. Titles include "Black Man's March", "Ron's Tune", "The Klan", "Color", "Flyin", "We Need Peace & Love", "Scratchin", "Bad Luck", and "Blind Man". CD

✨✧ Franklin ThompsonPlanet Jumper EP ... LP
Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s batch of old school hip hop & cosmic electro funk from the Omaha scene's Franklin Thompson – resurrected for the oughties by Stones Throw! Franklin concocts a unique stew with influences ranging from George & Bootsy, to the earliest hip hop & astral electro – with that gloriously thumping low fi Drumulator groove that can rock the party or sound like backing music for the latest adventures of Axel Foley with equal aplomb! He also brings a flighty lyrical sensibly that's in a realm of his own – and bills himself as the originator of an alternative social and inspirational message billed as the "Selah Sound" – check this cat out now! Titles include "Planet Jumper", "Dinosaur", "Mega Mix", "My Money's Kinda Funny", "Ghost Dance" and Enemies Within Us". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – In a plain sleeve.)

✨✧ VariousGet Your Lie Straight – A Galaxy Of Funky Soul ... CD
Galaxy/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An absolute funky monster! This set lays out an incredible batch of funk era singles from the vaults of Galaxy Records – and it shakes and burns all the way through, with lost funk bombs Bobby Rush, Rodger Collins, Bill Coday, Bobby Eaton, the Debonairs and others! It's comprised of mostly obscure 45s representing the stone funkiest records ever released by the Oakland-based Galaxy label – which was at this point sort of serving as the farm club for big brother label Fantasy Records. This one's essential, kids – just as worthy of your funk-loving dollar as the legendary rare funk compilations on Jazzman, Soul Fire or Stones Throw! 22 tracks in all: "Foxy Girls In Oakland", "Get Your Lie Straight", "Chicken Heads" by Bobby Rush, "Bring It On Up" by Loleatta Holloway, "I Love Her Too" by Lenny Williams, "People Say" by JJ Malone, "Try The Life" by Everyday People, "Man Power" (previously unreleased) by Ben & Larry, "My Money Is Funny" by the Right Kind, "The Iron Horse" by Merl Saunders & Heavy Turbulence, "I Get What I Want" by the Sequins and lots more!

✨✧ Kashmere Stage BandThunder Soul (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great title for this classic early album from the Kashmere Stage Band – a group who come on with plenty of thunder in their sound – both in the funky rhythms at the bottom, and the burning solos on the top! The approach is that of a school band, but the sound here is way way different – championed by Stones Throw and other funk stalwarts – and for good reason, too – as these young cats play with a sharpness that most older big bands could never match – and have a love of funk and soul that makes even older jazz standards come across with a mighty deep sound. There's lots of percussion at the bottom, which often really spurs on the grooves – and titles include "Super Bad", "Don't Mean A Thing", "Lost Love", "Thunder Soul", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Do You Dig It Man", and "Keep On Doing".

✨✧ VariousSoul Cal – Disco & Modern Soul 1971 to 1982 (CD & book) ... CD
Now Again/Soul Cal, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy CD & Book ... Out Of Stock
An amazing compilation – a decade in the making, and filled with wonderful grooves – most of which have never appeared on CD or LP reissues! And while the music itself is already wonderful, the package also includes an amazing 80 page book, too – a rich research project that digs deep into the American underground of the 70s – and features a wealth of photos, images, and historical details on music that never got it's due back in the day! The set's based around the groundbreaking series of Soul Cal 12" reissues put together by Stones Throw about a decade ago – wonderful records that unearthed rare grooves that fall beautifully in a space between funk and club – almost all originally issued on tiny little labels from all over the US, but working together to create a rich vibe in the set. Given the book, there's a Numero-like heft to the whole thing – although the range of grooves is even greater than one of their collections – and titles include "Ecology" by Anubis, "You Can Be A Star" by Luther Davis, "Don't Get Discouraged" by UPC All Stars, "Things Cannot Stop Forever" by Stanton Davis, "Free Your Mind" by Record Player, "Get Down" by Freedom Express, "Keep Running Away" by Clifford Nyren, "Love Is" by Leon Mitchison & The Eastex Freeway Band, "What It Takes To Live" by Key & Cleary, "I'm Gonna Miss You Girl" by Ellis & Cephas, "It's A Bad Feeling" by Mixed Sugar, and "Put A Smile On Time" by Rhythm Machine. (Funky Compilations, Soul) CD
