New Tony Cook feat Dam FunkWhat's On Your Mind? (voc, inst, acapella)/Later For Dancing (Stay The Night) (voc, inst, acapella) ... 12-inch 12-Inch
Stones Throw, 2010. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $4.99
Throwback style funky soul from Tony Cook – who dropped an innovative, influential club soul jam or two in the 80s – getting a late headlining platform via Stones Throw! "What's On Your Mind" feels like an early-to-mid 80s club jam, with sparkling keys, danceable beats and a killer bassline – and it's an ubercatchy jam, with vocals by Dam Funk! "Later For Dancing (Stay The Night)" is another evergreen old school dancefloor soul groover, with vocals by Tavell. "Get To The Point" features falsetto soul vocals credited to Vernon Cheely and this one's got something of an early Prince vibe to it, minus the guitars and more of a low fi synth soul sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ebony Rhythm BandSoul Heart Transplant – The Lamp Sessions ... CD CD format
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
Heavy funk from the Indy scene of the late 60s – the lost album by one of the funkiest combos in the Midwest! Ebony Rhythm Band have an incredible sound that seems to take the heavy bottom of New Orleans Funk and merge it with the trippier elements of Detroit psychedelic soul – no surprise, considering they hailed from Indianapolis, a point about halfway between the two cities! The tracks on the set have a really great tripped-out groove – using lots of guitar and organ over heavy rhythms, in a style that's a bit like the Meters at times – but a lot freer flowing. The album features 2 tracks that formed the basis of one of the group's singles – plus a lot more that were never issued at the time, including a few by other incarnations of the combo! Titles include "Soul Heart Transplant", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Light My Fire", "Vanilla Fudge", "Get Yourself Together", "Drugs Ain't Cool", "Fool Am I", and "It's Too Late For Love". CD contains the bonus alternate version of "Light My Fire". CD

New LA CarnivalLA Carnival Would Like To Pose A Question ... CD CD format
Stones Throw, 1970. Used ... $5.99
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

VariousSouth Dallas Pop Festival 1970 ... LP LP format
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A treasure trove of lost funk – recorded live in Dallas in 1970, and issued now for the first time ever! The project was unearthed by the crate-digging funk fanatics at Stones Throw – and it's a perfect counterpart to their brilliant reissue singles of the past few years – live work from obscure groups of the Texas funk scene of the 60s, all recorded in concert, in a format that allows them to jam even more than they would on 45s! Tracks are often quite free-minded – grooving with a tightness that shows the groups' roots in the club scene that first got them playing heavy funk, but working here with a confidence and slight sense of experimentation that's quite befitting of their move to the bigger stage of the festival. The music is presented here complete with announcements and introductions – plus a great set of notes that really helps you understand the vibe of the music – and the material features performances by The Soul Seven, Apollo Commanders, Marchel Ivery Quintet, Black Maffia, and Les Watson & The Panthers – all groups you'll be happy to discover! LP, Vinyl record album

Joe TexHe Who Is Without Funk Cast The First Stone ... LP LP format
Dial, 1978. Very Good- ... $5.99
Joe Tex is definitely not without funk on this sweet little set – a smoking TK Records session that carries strongly from the vibe of his "I Gotcha" years! Longtime producer Buddy Killen is still on deck to keep everything tight and right – a mix of Joe's southern soul roots with some sharper elements of the 70s – served up here at a level that may well be one of the most perfect blends of all the great Joe Tex styles – even though the record itself has kind of a hokey title and cover (which seems to have a bunch of white folks, obviously "without funk", ready to throw stones at Tex!) Joe wrote all the lyrics himself, and the few mellow moments have a wonderfully heartbreaking quality. Titles include "Loose Caboose", "Finger Popped Myself Into The Poor House", "How Do You Spell Relief", and "Who Gave Birth To The Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

New Soul SevenEverything Is Everything With The Soul Seven EP ... LP LP format
Soultex/Now Again, 1969/1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Texas – a stunning 4 track ep, featuring some great work by the mighty Soul Seven! The group have been virtually unknown for years, but thanks to the efforts of the crate-digging team at Stones Throw, these guys are finally getting their due – and for good reason too! The group play in a fast and fierce blend of guitars and horns – hard-stepping an instrumental groove with the intensity of classic work by the JBs, or of the King's Men combo that was headed up by Maceo in the years he was away from James Brown. The set's got 3 studio tracks – all rare singles – "Mr Chicken", "The Cissy's Thang", and "Southside Funk" – plus an extended super-jam from the South Dallas Pop Festival in 1970. That track goes on long and strong – and really shows how a group like this could open up in a live setting – taking grooves way way past the short 2 and 3 minute funk tunes known only from their singles!
