Kashmere Stage BandTexas Thunder Soul 1968 to 1974 ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A massive exploration of the music of Kashmere Stage Band – the legendary Texas funk combo whose work has been pushed heavily over the years by Wax Poetics, Stones Throw, and many others! The double-length set goes even deeper than any of the vinyl reissues of work by the group – and features some previously unreleased tracks, alternate takes on their funkiest numbers, and a full 10 extra live tracks never heard before! The Kashmere groove is incredible – blasting horns, scratchy guitars, and funky drums – all wrapped super-tight around a range of original material and some more familiar numbers – all recast here in super-heavy funk mode! Studio tracks include "All Praises", "Thank You", "Scorpio (extended)", "Do Your Thing", "Headwiggle", "Do You Dig It Man", "Getting It Out Of My System", "Zero Point (parts 1 & 2)", "Boss City", "Burning Spear", "Take Five", and "Keep Doing It". Live tracks include "Zero Point", "Don't Mean A Thing", "Thank You", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "All Praises" – and the set also features a huge amount of detailed notes and photos, plus a full bonus documentary entitled "Texas Jewels"!

✨✧ Ebony Rhythm BandSoul Heart Transplant/Drugs Ain't Cool (vocal, inst) ... 12-inch
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1969. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spaced out Indiana funk! "Soul Heart Transplant" is as devilish as it sounds – a stretched out, slinky number that bristles with psychedelic energy – and which features guitars strutting out over organ grooves, snapping drum beats, and some really tripped out production! "Drugs Ain't Cool" sounds like it's going to be a kiddie track – but instead it's a really righteous funk tune, done in a progressive Norman Whitfield-esque style – one that certainly must have been informed by drugs to sound so great! 3 tracks in all – and a nice mini LP of funky work by this obscure group! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a plain sleeve.)

✨✧ LA CarnivalLA Carnival Would Like To Pose A Question ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970. Used ... 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
