✨✧ James BrownThink ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
One of James Brown's earliest full albums for King Records – and a set that kicks off with his monstrous reworkin of the tune "Think" – originally recorded by the Five Royales, but recast here by James as the blueprint for all the funky goodness in years to come! That track really sets the scene for the record – and James follows up with some other harder, sharp-edged tunes – offset by a few more deep-burning mellower soul tracks. Other titles include "You've Got The Power", "If You Want Me", "So Long", "Baby, You're Right", "I'll Go Crazy", "Good Good Lovin", and "I Know It's True". Reissued with the great original cover, too! CD

Lyn CollinsThink (About It) (with bonus poster & 7-inch single) ... LP
People/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.98
The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s! Like those gems, this one has Collins working with James Brown on production and the JBs in the background – creating a razor-sharp groove that's probably the closest any female singer ever came in the 70s to matching The Godfather's groove! The album's got Lyn shifting between heavy funk numbers and mellower soul cuts – really pushing things to the max with an incredibly deep take on a few older favorites, plus some killer new numbers – all produced to funky perfection, with just the right sort of balance between the rough and the tight. Titles include her great version of "Think", a funky sample cut that never gets old – plus the cuts "Things Got To Get Better", "Women's Lib", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Just Won't Do Right", "Wheels Of Life", and the funkiest version ever of "Fly Me To The Moon". Special package includes a bonus 7" single – with "We Want To Parrty Parrty Parrty" and "You Can't Beat Two People In Love", a bonus poster, a special People Records sleeve, and a heavy tip-on jacket!

Courtial with Errol KnowlesDon't You Think It's Time (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Pipeline/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
A rare bit of Cali soul – and a lot groovier than you'd guess from the cover! The music is rich in jazzy inflections – funky fusion used behind the lead vocals of Errol Knowles, in a blend that's quite similar to the best Bay Area funk of the time – particularly some of the grooves coming from the Fantasy Records scene! Guitars are great – played by Bill Courtial with lots of snakey, angular lines that really emphasize the groove – and other instrumentation includes keyboards and some mighty sweet percussion. Titles include "Losing You", "Love Nevermore", "Corn On The Cob/Time", "Don't You Think It's Time", "Time To Explain", and "Poem For Helen". CD

Margaret ReynoldsThink About It Baby ... CD
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $19.99
Maybe the only full length set we've ever seen from Margaret Reynolds – a singer we know for deep soul work in the 70s, but who's coming across here with a bit more of a contemporary R&B vibe! The approach is filled with some strong 80s touches in the rhythms, which work especially well on the mellow tracks as they set a stepping pace that lets Reynolds then soar over the top in her own sort of way. The album's also got some upbeat numbers with lots of bass pedal riffs next to the keyboards – almost 80s clubby, but a bit more restrained – and titles include "Think About It Baby", "Keep In Touch", "Still In Love", "Natural Love", "Get Ready", "I Want You", and "I'll Do Anything".

✨✧ Satisfaction UnlimitedThink Of The Children ... CD
Hot Wax/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really compelling little set from Satisfaction Unlimited – a group we only know from this one corker of a record on the Hot Wax label! The style's a bit in some of the harmony modes of the east coast scene of the time – yet like most Hot Wax/Invictus work, there's also a bit of an odd twist too – a quality that's hard to peg in words, but which is sometimes slightly trippy, other times warmly soulful – almost a Cali indie sort of vibe – with a bit of sunshine that breaks through amidst some of the darker, heavier themes of the record. There's plenty of great numbers with a catchy vibe that could have almost gotten these guys the radio play of some of the RCA groups of the time – and titles include "Time For Us", "Think of The Children", "Bright City Lights", "Let's Change The Subject", "Come On Back", and "Why".

AuraAura ... LP
Mercury, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Is this the same group that went onto become Aurra and record disco records for Salsoul? We don't think so, but folks tell it that it is. Whatever the case, though, the record's a great batch of funky rock tracks, with some really hard groovers that crossover to a funky soul market – despite the obvious rock leanings of the group. Check out the group's excellent version of "Listen To Me (The Ragg)", done with these great descending guitars, soaring organ, and soulful vocals by Al Lathan that are very much in the Baby Huey mode. Other tracks include "No Opportunity Needed, No Experience Necessary", "Song Of Everything", "Life Is Free", "Cross Eyed Eagle", and "Truckin". LP, Vinyl record album

Fontella BassRescued – The Best Of Fontella Bass ... CD
Chess/MCA, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
Killer hard female soul! Fontella Bass was one of the best voices of the 60s – and she cut a lot of great work besides her one huge hit "Rescue Me" (which everyone always seems to think was by Aretha Franklin anyway!) This CD brings together 16 great tracks from her years at Chess, when she was brought to the label by Oliver Sain, who also handled most of the recordings. The sound here is pure and simple hard soul, with none of the more sophisticated stuff that Bass got into later, after hooking up with Lester Bowie. Titles include "Recovery", "The Soul Of A Man", "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing", "Don't Jump", "Leave It In The Hands Of Love", and "Joy Of Love". Also features a few duets with Bobby McClure, and a previously unissued track. CD

Beginning Of The EndFunky Nassau ... CD
Alston (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to funk! They've got a choppy sound that's the result of some incredibly dexterous guitar, bass, and drums – and which you'll recognize instantly from their one-time hit "Funky Nassau", a killer funk track that never gets old, no matter how many bands cover it over the years! That gem kicks off the album, which then rolls into the monster funky "part 2", which is even better! Other titles are equally wonderful – and include "Come Down", "Surrey Ride", "Monkey Tamarind", and "In The Deep". Essential – and one that you'll be spinning for years! CD

✨✧ Edwin BirdsongDance Of Survival ... LP
Bamboo, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Tripped out funky soul from the great Edwin Birdsong – a rare indie album released between his years at Polydor and Philly International! The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird production touches, edgey guitar bits, and a style that's almost psychedelic-folk-jazz-disco! Birdsong's lyrics are more "out there" than ever, and there's some great spacey production that really makes the whole thing sound great – and which gives the record a very cool feel that's unlike anything else we can think of. A real lost treasure from the 70s indie underground – with titles that include "Dance Of Survival", "What's Your Sign", "Night Of The Full Moon", "Astral Walk", and "Your Smile Gave Birth To My Idea".

✨✧ BlackbyrdsFlying Start ... LP
BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel – tight enough to crossover somewhat big with a larger audience than the group's previous effort – but still filled with the kind of righteous energy that first got them going, a sublime mix of jazzy rhythms and soulful elements, all held together tightly by production from Donald Byrd. Tracks include the big hit "Walking In Rhythm", which was an oft-spun 45 back in the day – plus some great funk moments, like the tasty "Spaced Out", the choppy "The Baby", and the captivating "Blackbyrds Theme". Other cuts include "Future Children Future Hopes", "I Need You", and "April Showers". LP, Vinyl record album

BombersBombers ... LP
West End, 1978. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the more guitar-driven groups on the West End label at the end of the 70s – an outfit with a really great approach to cutting longer dancefloor grooves! Tracks on the album have a nice tight feel that's echoed strongly by the guitar and keyboard work on the tracks – not as spacey as you might think from the sci-fi cover of the record, but still with a strong cosmic groove nonetheless! The album includes the legendary break cut "The Mexican", served up here in a full version that's nearly 12 minutes long, and which has lots of nice congas and guitars! Other titles include "Main Man", "Don't Stop The Music", and "Super Max". LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsAnd Now – Booker T & The MGs ... CD
Stax (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little album from Booker T & The MGs – recorded in the post Green Onions years, at a time when the group was really coming together – with a tightness that perfectly illustrates their sublime Memphis instrumental groove! The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd expect – that great Booker/Steve Cropper sound that can't be denied – and there's a rawness here that you don't get as much in later years – more of a funky 45 vibe that really keeps things fresh! Titles include a few nice originals – like "Soul Jam" and "My Sweet Potato" – but ever the covers sound pretty darn great, with a lot more imagination than the usual instrumental filler. As proof, there's a killer version of "Summertime", with a nice modal groove, plus nice takes on "Think" and "Working In A Coal Mine". CD

Two classic albums from this great Memphis group – with bonus tracks as well! First up is And Now Booker T & The MGs – a great little album recorded in the post Green Onions years, at a time when the group was really coming together – with a tightness that perfectly illustrates their sublime Memphis instrumental groove! The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd expect – that great Booker/Steve Cropper sound that can't be denied – and there's a rawness here that you don't get as much in later years – more of a funky 45 vibe that really keeps things fresh!

As proof, there's a killer version of "Summertime", with a nice modal groove, plus nice takes on "Think" and "Working In A Coal Mine". In The Christmas Spirit is a seasonal classic from the legendary Stax Records – a set of all instrumental Holiday tunes, played by Booker T & The MGs! The album was recorded at the height of the group's early fame – and features a simple, straightforward groove that features plenty of Hammond from Booker T – plus tight grooves from Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Al Jackson on drums – all of whom cook up some Memphis soul instrumental takes on seasonal favorites – in a mode that easily makes the record one of the hippest Christmas sides from the time! The whole thing's great – almost like a lost Booker T album overall – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "We Three Kings", "Winter Wonderland", "Silver Bells", and "Merry Christmas Baby". Also features 4 bonus tracks – "Booker Loo", "Red Beans & Rice", "Boot Leg", and "Be My Lady". CD

James BrownLive At The Apollo (1962) (remastered & expanded) ... CD
Polydor, 1962. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
A landmark album that forever changed the face of live recordings! As has been told and retold often, King records not only had the genius idea of bringing recording equipment into the Apollo Theater to catch James in a smoking live setting – but they also went out of their way to record and re-record the audience, creating a wonderful interplay on the record between James and the crowd. The result is the stuff of legend – and the record's filled with loads of nice tracks like "I'll Go Crazy", "Try Me", "I Don't Mind", "Lost Someone", "Think", The massive medley featuring "Please, Please, Please", "I Want You So Bad", "I Love You, Yes I Do", "Strange Things Happen" and more, and "Night Train". This newly remastered edition features five bonus tracks/single mixes of original LP tracks! CD

James Brown's great second album recorded live at the Apollo Theater in Harlem – a set we like even better than the first famous volume – because it's much more stretched-out, harder-hitting, and full of fire! You'd be hard pressed to find a better example of Brown's showmanship on record – as James urges the band through these triple-time takes on some of his classics, and turns in some amazing work in the process! The set includes a killer long version of "There Was A Time" – almost the blueprint of the James Brown funk sound to come – and other titles include "Bring It Up", "Let Yourself Go", and a wonderful duet version of "Think" – plus "Prisoner Of Love", "Out Of Sight", "Try Me", "It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World", "Lost Someone","Thanks", "Cold Sweat", "I Feel Alright", and "Please, Please, Please".

Smash, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $22.99
James Brown plays organ on this one, but it's mostly an effort to showcase various other artists that he was producing at the time, and who traveled with him on the road. Includes cuts by Baby Lloyd, The Jewels, James Crawford, and a young Vicki Anderson. This stuff was cut years before the People label was formed, but it's the same sort of effort by James Brown. And he and Nat Jones arranged most of the stuff. Song titles include "Strung Out" by James Crawford, "Stop And Think It Over" by James Crawford, "This Is My Story" by the Jewels and "Nowhere To Run" by Vicki Anderson. LP, Vinyl record album

Terry CallierNew Folk Sound Of Terry Callier ... LP
Prestige, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Terry Callier's first album – recorded in 1964 when he was a wee teen hanging around Chicago's folk scene! As the title indicates, the album's definitely got a folk-styled sound – but also as the "new" implies, it's got a sound all it's own, fresh and free – and that sound is the genius that is Terry Callier! This is very stripped down material, very dark and brooding – a good chance to hear Terry before he hit the Chess studios and they backed him up with a lot of orchestrations (although we love the orchestrations, too.) The material has a soulful spiritual feel, and is sung with a lot of passion over acoustic guitar. Think of Nina Simone's folksier stuff from the same time, if you need a reference. Tracks include "900 Miles", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "It's About Time", "Promenade In Green", and "I'm A Drifter". LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence CarterDynamic Clarence Carter ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
Seminal southern soul from the legendary Clarence Carter – one of his early killers for Atlantic Records, all of which really stand out from most of his work to come in later years! There's a raw, raspy brilliance here that's undeniable – the blind singer stepping out with incredible confidence on a host of tunes that really run the gamut – numbers of love and loss, mixed with a few more contemporary pop tracks – but all given a unique Muscle Shoals twist that really transforms them. Carter wins our heart from the start with his version of "I'd Rather Go Blind" – then keeps on soaring through cuts that include "Think About It", "Steal Away", "Look What I Got", "That Old Time Feeling", "Let Me Comfort You", "Weekend Love", "Light My Fire", and "Too Weak To Fight".

✨✧ Lyn CollinsMama Feelgood – The Best Of Lyn Collins ... CD
People/Universal (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Amazing funk from one of the greatest deep soul singers of the 70s – the legendary Lyn Collins, heard here on a 20 track set of tunes all produced by James Brown! James worked with a number of female vocalists in the 60s and 70s – but Collins was arguably the strongest, and the one with the biggest potential for challenging the ranks of better-charted female vocalists at the time. She's got a totally kicking way of putting over a tune – one that's steeped in gospel and southern soul traditions, but lean and clean enough to bristle alongside the tightness of the grooves she was getting on record from the JBs! In fact, most of the tracks on the set crackle like the best funk tunes from early 70s James Brown or JBs – and the collection goes out of its way to bring together the hardest-hitting tunes by Lyn from these years – getting past some of the slower album tracks to go for some key rare singles! Titles include "Wheel Of Life", "Mama Feelgood", "Baby Don't Do It", "Don't Make Me Over", "I'll Never Let You Break My Heart Again", "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", "How Long Can I Keep It Up", "Ain't No Sunshine", "What My Baby Needs Now Is A Little More Lovin", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Do Your Thing", "Take Me Just As I Am", "Think (About It)", "You Can't Love Me If You Don't Respect Me", and "Put It On The Line".

DellsDells Sing Dionne Warwick's Greatest Hits ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
Forget Dionne Warwick, and think Burt Bacharach – because on this sublime little set, The Dells are singing some of Burt's greatest tunes ever – all set to impeccable arrangements by the legendary Charles Stepney! The album's more wonderful than you might even expect – a true high point in the career of all parties involved – and a tremendous recasting of Bacharach's original brilliance – taking his key compositions into the most sophisticated styles of the Chicago soul scene in the 70s! There's a sense of timing and phrasing here that's quite unique – hardly simple covers of Dionne Warwick's approach to these hits – and Stepney's backings feature his own Fender Rhodes, guitar from Phil Upchurch, percussion from members of The Pharoahs, and some fuller horns, harp, and strings. The Dells are equally great too – and serve up some of the best vocals of their career – really magnificent harmonies, and soaring solo parts that seem to even go beyond their best-known hits. Titles include "Walk On By", "Trains & Boats & Planes", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Wives & Lovers", "Close To You", "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself", "This Guy's In Love With You", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", and "A House Is Not A Home".

Eramus HallYour Love Is My Desire ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the last great soul albums on the Westbound label! Eramus Hall have a vague P-Funk connection – and according to legend, the band were given their name by George Clinton, who had seen a building in Chicago named Eramus Hall – but the sound is a lot smoother than any of the P-Funk projects of the time, and the group's strongest point is their smooth soul groove, augmented by a tight jazz funk style on the best cuts. In a way, they're sort of like a morphed version of late Parliament – with a funk sound that's nicely compressed, but still a lot more true than any of the countless other bands on the market who were aping P-Funk at the time. Highlights include the groovers "Your Love Is My Desire" and "She Shined A Light", both with nice sample moments – and other tracks include "Stuck In The Mudd", "Funk Permit", and "Think Positively".

Given where the plug is on the back cover, in proximity to the lower regions of a nude model, we hardly think that "death" is the result of the plugging – and the album's a tasty set of extended disco grooves, done in the driving style of the time. There's actually a lot of instrumental passages on the album – making for some extended disco moments that make the best of the group's strongly percussive approach – and titles include the well named "Jerky Rhythm", plus "Plug Me To Death", "Love Disco Style", and "Action 78".

Fame GangGrits & Gravy – The Best Of The Fame Gang ... CD
Fame/BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
The legendary Fame Gang finally gets their due – in this CD that's overflowing with tight funky instrumentals, most of which have never been issued at all! The "best" in the title is certainly well-put – given the quality of the music – but don't think "hits", as 18 of the CD's 25 tracks have never been issued before – which makes the whole collection way more of a discovery than you might expect! Back in the late 60s, the Fame Gang were the house rhythm section at Fame Records down in Muscle Shoals – as important as the Mar-Keys, Bar-Kays, or MGs were over at Stax Records – and graced with not only an impeccable sense of groove, but also a really bold, soulful flair on their horns! There's no vocals here at all – and the cuts feature loads of tenor, guitar, and organ solos over rhythms that are easily some of the funkiest ever cut at Fame studios. We're not entirely sure why these gems weren't released at the time – but they're all tremendous, and we're plenty happy to have them out now! Titles include "Smokestack Lightning", "Hey Joe", "Soul Stutterin", "Sunrise", "Walk Tall", "Rang's Thang", "Stand", "Cannonball", "Muscle Soul", "Shufflin", "Sax Appeal", "Crime Don't Pay", and "Groove Killer".

FoxyGet Off (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dash/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A pretty catchy bit of Miami club from the late 70s – and an album that sounds a heck of a lot better than you might think from its silly pink cover! The group's actually got a strong acoustic sound underpinning their grooves – with some excellent percussion underneath the best tracks, and some vocals that almost hit a scatting harmony range that reminds us of Side Effect or the LA Boppers. There's a definite Latin bent to some of the better tunes too – almost hitting in a Kid Creole style, but without the retro touches. Titles include "Mademoiselle", "Tena's Song", "Ready For Love", "Get Off", and "It's Happening". CD features bonus tracks "Get Off (12" disco)", "Get Off (single version)", and "Tena's Song (inst)".
