VariousLooking Good – Mod Club Classics ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Stormin soul – and a killer set of upbeat 60s numbers! The package was put together for the UK mod scene, but it's a great batch of American tracks from the classic years of soul – not really Northern, not really southern – but kind of a hard-swinging approach to the music that makes for a really lively package overall! The set's got 20 tracks in all, all thumpin, bumpin, and gruntin-type numbers – with titles that include "Do The Whoo Pee" by Sugar Pie Desanto, "Lay This Burden Down" by Mary Love, "Make Me Yours" by Bettye Swann, "I Keep Forgetting" by Chuck Jackson, "I've Got Papers On You Baby" by BB King, "Hole in The Wall" by George Stone, "Have Love Will Travel" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs, "Keep My Woman Home" by Danny White, "Mama Julie" by Terry & Jerry, and "I Got A Woman" by Billy Hawks.

20 years of inventive, profoundly soul and funk infused, floor shaking dance music from Henry Street Music – given a top shelf anniversary showcase in conjunction with BBE! Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day, including Todd Terry, DJ Duke, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Kenny Dope, and Johnick to name but a few – with classic house rooted, but future ready grooves that stand the test the test of time. These tracks will continue to rock dancefloors until the end of days!

VariousBeach Diggin' Vol 3 – Hand Picked By Guts & Mambo ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A deep selection of grooves that are warm and breezy, but also nicely tripped out at times – way more than a simple compilation of sunny sounds – and instead a globe-spanning set of diverse gems! Volume 3 includes sun toasted sounds from tropical climates, plus similar-minded numbers from the US and even Canada – from easygoing Rhodes-led soul from Trinidad & Tobago, to breezy brass from Tunisia, to Jamaican disco and well beyond! The tunes might go as far back as the 60s, but certainly includes some great ones from the 70s and early 80s – all pretty obscure stuff that's well worth digging up! 14 tracks in all, including "Feel Like Making Love" by Gene Lawrence, "Moin Epi Vou" by The Group NSI, "Mystic Mood" by Billy Cole, "Soul Brother" by Dalton, "I Want To Make It With You" by Bobbie Houston, "Wars In Space Dub" by Brother Resistance", "I Need Your Love" by Scherzando and more.

VariousBlue Bossa – Vols 1 to 3 – Cool Cuts From The Tropics (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

VariousBlue Break Beats 3 – The Jazz Break Beats That Made Hip Hop Hits (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Blue Note (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
A really wonderful collection of grooves that first came to light in the 90s – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles on this third volume "Howling for Judy" by Jeremy Steig, "Mystic Brew" by Ronnie Foster, "Get Out Of My Live Woman" by Joe Williams, "Soul" by Jackie McLean, "Put On Train" by Gene Harris & The Three Sounds, "Light My Fire" by Shirley Bassey, "Ode To Billie Joe" by Lou Donaldson, "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Sho-Nuff Mellow" by Reuben Wilson, "Don't Call Me N*gger Whitey" by Gene Harris, "Blacks & Blues" by Bobbi Humprhey, "Dominoes" by Donald Byrd, "Ground Hog" by Duke Pearson, "Goin Down South" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Down Here On The Ground" by Grant Green, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, and "Flat Backin" by Blue Mitchell.

VariousBrazilian Disco Boogie Sounds Vol 2 – 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Tremendous work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – one of the few global sites to really capture the same sort of energy of American funk and soul, yet still be able to give it a great local twist of its own! From the bossa years onwards, Brazil was always full of super-tight musicians – and by the time the 70s rolled around, there were plenty of records with grooves as great as work in the US from greats like Kool & The Gang or Earth Wind & Fire – both groups who've clearly provided a lot of inspiration to most of the acts on this set! And like some of the best American groups, the Brazilian once started to change their style a bit once the 70s came to a close – with these lean, funky modes that are mighty nice – and which were maybe already more present in Brazil than they were in the American mainstream. But all that history aside, this is one smoking little set – killer clubby funk tracks that have a flavor that's completely universal, even if you can't understand the lyrics – but even the way those lyrics are sung, they're plenty darn catchy, even without the benefit of language. Titles include "Amgio Branca" by Marcia Maria, "To Parada Nua Tua" by Almir Ricardi, "Contigo" by Adriana, "Cara Feita" by Kaito, "Alegria No Ar" by Rosana, "Natureza Viva" by Brenda, "Minas Do Rei Salomao" by Cristina Camargo, and "Valeu A Pena" by Lady Zu.

VariousCountry Funk 1969 to 1975 ... LP
Light In The Attic, New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 25.98
A sweet little set that definitely aims to stake out its own little territory – with a groove that lives up surprisingly well to the title! The music here is way funkier than you might expect – and comes from a time when many popular singers were working in studios staffed by cats who were pretty darn cool – and had a great ear for picking up some of the best musical undercurrents from other scenes – including some of the best soul and funk that was really breaking out in the US at the start of the 70s! As a result, many of these tracks have unexpectedly funky rhythms at the bottom – way different than the kind of backings that you might have heard in country soul records from a few years before – and different too than the redneck rock that was becoming more popular with some of the bigger acts on the charts. You're bound to recognize a few bigger names here – as the set's not just country artists – and as usual, the Light In The Attic crew have done a stunning job of putting the whole thing together. Titles include "LA Memphis Tyler Texas" by Dale Hawkins, "Georgia Mountain Dew" by Johnny Adams, "Light Blue" by Bobby Darin, "I Wanta Make Her Love Me" by Jim Ford, "Hawg Frog" by Gray Fox, "Fire & Brimstone" by Link Wray, "Street People" by Bobby Charles, "Bayou Country" by Gritz, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, and "Studspider" by Tony Joe White.

VariousDisco Fantasy – Songs Inspired By Stage, Screen, & Superheroes ... CD
Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Some of the most playful tracks of the disco generation – songs that draw a heavy inspiration from film and TV – sometimes by offering up clubby covers of the original versions, sometimes by taking off in great new directions of their own! There's a decidedly camp vibe to the set – as some older themes are updated with disco rhythms and soaring strings – or other tracks take off into the "fantasy" territory of the title, by bringing a strong 70s vibe to subjects that you might not expect. Our all-time favorite cut here is the wonderful "Superman" by Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch – and other cuts include "Night Fever" by Carol Douglas, "Star Wars" by Boris Midney, "Star Trek (ext)" by Shufflin Tymes, "The Entertainer" by JR Bailey, "Love Boat" by Jack Jones, "Theme From Swat" by Inner City Symphony, "More" by Carol Williams, "Don't Cry For Me Argentina (12" mix)" by Festival, and "Secret Agent Man (ext mix)" by Ultimate.

VariousDJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist USA – R&B Rockers, Rockabilly, Northern Soul, & Sleazy Shakers ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson.

VariousDJ Qbico Plays The Afro Tribal Congo Bongo Rhythm ... LP
EP Sound (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $28.99
Loads of highly percussive tracks – served up on this excellent collection of rare records from the African scene of the 70s – all with the usual perfect selection of choices we've come to appreciate from the DJ Qbico series! As with the others, there's not much here in the way of notes – some artists included appear to be Ozobby Horn, Frank Kojo, and Degbe Dosse – and rather than overload you with cultural context, Qbico just lets the music to the talking – as diverse drum-heavy tracks move together wonderfully – sometimes fast, sometimes at midtempo – with varied instrumentation on keyboards, horns, and guitar – plus occasional vocals too!

VariousEasy Tempo Vol 2 – The Psycho Beat ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $8.99
Mindblowing work from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s and 70s – a true treasure of tracks that more than lives up to the "psycho beat" promise of its title! The tunes are a heady brew of tripped-out styles – floating organ, slinking bass, stepping strings, fuzzy guitar, and bumping drums – all in a space that's just the right place between funky and easy – with a sublime kind of sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! If you've only ever dug funky groovers from the Anglo side of the spectrum, this is the kind of record that will definitely open up your ears – and even though the collection's an old one, it's still one of the best illustrations around of the genius of Italy at the time! Titles include "Fotomodelle" by Piero Umiliani, "Red Face" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake Psycho" by Mario Molino, "Schegge" by Lesiman, "Rapimento In Sicilia" by Nino De Luca, "Essere Donna" by Piero Umiliani, "L'Appartamento Vuoto" by Gianni Ferrio, "La Fine Di Cobb" by Stelvio Cipriani, and "Hurricane" by Cesco Anselmo.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Dynamic Label ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
That's a sweet image on the cover – and the grooves inside are equally dynamic too – a really wonderful collection that's easily one of the most compelling in Numero's Eccentric Soul series! The work here all hails from the tiny San Antonio scene of the late 60s – but much of the music has a sound that's way different than you might expect from Texas soul – often with great harmonies that recall the best of the east coast groups of the time, and occasionally with a few brown-eyed touches that echo the style of East LA! There's a wonderfully heartbreaking feel to many of these tracks – and the set's heavy focus on mellower numbers is totally great – and gives the whole thing a wonderful late nite sort of vibe that's usually quite hard to find in compilations like this. As usual, Numero's done a great job with the notes and history of the label – but the music alone is more than enough – a heady brew of cuts that include "Little Girl Blue" and "Try Loving Me" by The Webs, "I Gotta Know" by Tonettes, "Give Your Love To Me" and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Little Jr Jesse & The Tear Drops, "Cry & Wonder Why" by Doc & Sal, "Must Be Alright" and "Hey It's Love" by The Commands, "She's Gotta Have Soul" by Bobby Blackmon & The Soul Express, and "I Can't Take No More" by Willie Cooper & The Webs.

VariousExotic Blues & Rhythm Vols 5 & 6 – Sadaba/Gibble Gobble ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Ultra-hip work from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – the kind of weird, wild, and unusual singles you'd be likely to find way down on the list of singles available on a jukebox – often with hand-written title cards, because the music was so obscure! The tunes here are all at a midtempo groove – the kind of vamping, bad-stepping work that's been rediscovered by the funk collecting underground in recent years – tunes that were originally issued on 45s and 78s, mostly on small labels – in modes that are heavy on R&B, soul, and blues elements. Titles include "Gibble Gobble" by Willie Wright, "Gonna Have Myself A Ball" by Lance Roberts, "Apache War Dance" by Earl Hooker, "Tiny Tim" by Chuck Daniels, "Cool Cool Cool" by The Clare Sisters, "Big John" by Titus Turner, "Sadaba" by Johnny Williams, "Cleo" by The Mark Five, "Lover's Curse" by Bracey Everett, "I Want To Love You" by Kenny & Moe, "Exotic" by The Rhythm Kings, and "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen.

BGP (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99 22.99
Funky female soul galore – a killer set of rare tunes that's one of the best sets of this type we've ever stocked! The SuperFunk crew at BGP have gone through the rich array of labels handled by the company – pulling out some massive tunes that really push our understanding of female soul – taking things way past the obvious hits and girl group numbers, into hard and heavy-stepping territory that we really love! Most of the tunes on the set are completely new to our ears, and there's a great mix of northern and southern funk styles that keeps things super-fresh. Drums crackle, basslines pound, and the gals belt it out loud, clear, and funky on a set of 20 tracks that includes "Tell Me What's Wrong" by Lynn Varnado, "Listen Here" by Valorie Keys, "Know What To Do When You Get It" by The Genies, "Heavy Heavy Hangs My Heart" by Vera Hamilton, "Better Get A Move On" by Louise McCord, "Pounds Of Soul" by Betty Bibbs, "Ooh Wee Baby" by Delilah Moore, "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Spanky Wilson, "Staying At Home Like A Woman" by Lynn Varnado, "Hold On This Time" by Fontella Bass, "Mr Fix It" by Thelma Jones, "I'm Glad I Got Over You" by Jeanette Jones, "One Way Street" by Little Ann, and "It's Too Late For Tears" by Rene Bailey.

Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
The Profile Records label may be best-remembered as the initial home of Run DMC – but back in the day, the company was one of the top imprints on the New York scene – and one of the few who could be a bit bigtime, yet still keep the right sort of ears to the ground! The selection here certainly lives up to that legacy – as the music is filled with some overlooked treasures, mixed with a few key classics – all to serve up a perfect portrait of the hip hop underground as it was really breaking out and moving up! Titles include "Genius Rap" by Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, "Whip Rap" by Disco Four, "Word Of Mouth" by King Kut, "A Fly Guy" by Pebblee Poo, "Fresh" by Fresh 3 MCs, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, "Nightmares" by Dana Dane, "Get Off My Tip" by Masterdon Committee, "Lies Lies" by Rap-O-Matic, "It's My Beat" by Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce, "Drag Rap" by The Showboys, "Here Comes That Beat" by Pumpkin & The Profile All-Stars, and "Sucker MCs (Krush Groove 1)" by Run-DMC.

There's a huge amount of early Philly soul here – lots of tracks from the classic years of the Cameo/Parkway label, plus a few other choice bits too – all wrapped up in a Northern Soul collection that owes almost nothing to the style of Detroit! The package features great tracks by obscure artists, and obscure tracks by bigger singers – brought together with the kind of top-shelf track selection that makes us love releases on the Outta Sight label so much. There's plenty here that goes way past the obvious – and titles include "Heartaches Away My Boy" by Christine Cooper, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "Country Girl" by Vickie Baines, "Envy" by The Orlons, "You Didn't Say A Word" by Yvonne Baker, "Girl Don't Make Me Wait" by Bunny Sigler, "Packing Up" by Damon Fox, "Deep Dark Secret" by Dee Dee Sharp, "My Heart Your Heart" by Janie Grant, "Picture Me Gone" by Evie Sands, "Comin Home Baby" by Dee Dee Sharp, and "It's Rough Out There" by Jerry Jackson.

VariousHome Schooled – The ABCs Of Kid Soul ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
Jackson 5, move over – because the folks at Numero Records have uncovered a whole host of rare kid soul acts from the 70s – most of them a fair bit funkier than their Motown contemporaries! The tracks here all clearly follow the lead started by Michael and his brothers at the end of the 60s – but the music is way more than just a simple copycat of Jackson modes – as each of these artists have a really individual approach, and a heck of a lot of personality in their music – despite their youthful years. In true Numero fashion, most of the cuts here are from tiny little labels – issued only as singles back in the day, but produced with a great deal of enthusiasm for the music – and a confident, competent sound that's quite striking, given the age of the performers. The package comes with complete notes on the music – opening up a whole world of lesser-known kid soul acts – and titles include the amazing "Trust Your Child" by Patrizia & Jimmy, plus "I'm Not Ready For Love" by Promise, "One Is Enough For One" by Jack & the Mods, "Now That School Is Through" by Cindy & The Playmates, "Jersey Slide (part 1)" by 3 Stars, "You Are My Dream" by 3 Simmons, "Can't Let You Break My Heart" by Quantrells, "If You're Looking For Love" by Triads, "Yellow Ribbons" by Atons, "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown, "Time After Time" by Step By Step, "Time" by Otis The 3rd, and "Little Girl" by Michael Washington.

Proof that there's few labels better at digging up an interesting groove than the mighty Jazzman imprint – home to a consistently great series of reissue 45s over the past 10 years or so! The Jazzman groove goes way beyond the standard deep funk line – into a realm of groovy styles that includes soundtrack bits, primitive electronics, female jazz vocals, socking 60s soul, and a whole lot more – all served up perfectly in this wonderful little set! And as with other Jazzman volumes, it's not just the music that makes the set great, but the way it's put together – as Gerald Jazzman manages to sort tunes and lay them out one by one in a style that really changes up the groove – pushing our expectations with each new number, and really keeping things fresh throughout! This one's way way way more than just a pile of rare funk tracks – a truly loving document of one label's commitment to the depth of music in all its forms – served up over a batch of 12 rare tunes! Titles include "Let's Go" by James Reese & The Progressions, "Baby True" by Gettysbyrg Address, "Hunk Of Heaven" by Lemuria, "Pretty Bird" by Terea, "Transfert 2002" by Le Groupe X, "Scherzi Pesanti" by Remigio Ducros, "One" by Mary Lou Williams, "Bobby's Mood" by Soul Toronadoes, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, and "Baltimore Oriole (King version)" by Lorez Alexandria.

Great grooves in the classic popcorn soul mode – a special blend of R&B, jazz vocals, early soul, and outright pop – served up on tracks that have a really wonderful groove at the bottom!
