VariousBeat At Cinecitta Vol 3 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
The latest masterpiece in this fab fab series! Like the other versions, this one grabs wild funky and groovy tunes from lost Italian exploitation films of the 60s and 70s – a virtual treasure trove of incredible tunes! The cuts blast together one into the other, rolling along on a mad groove plucked out of time, mixing crime and jazz and funk and sleaze into a blend as beautiful as the lovely set of notes inside. Some of the cuts on this CD have shown up on other compilations, but the overall quality of the packaging is incredibly high, and the set sounds great together. Tracks include "Tema Di Oscar" by Berti Pisano, "Il Profeta" by Armando Trovajoli, "L'Eta Del Malessere" by Stefano Torossi, "Amore Amore Amore" by Piero Piccioni, "Playgirl 70" by Piero Piccioni, "Right Or Wrong" by Piero Piccioni, "Crazy", by Wes & The Airdales, "Let's Find Out" by Isabel Bond, and "Quand Ero Un Bebe" by Il Cantori Moderni.

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.

✨✧ VariousGhana Soundz – Afro-beat, Funk & Fusion In 70's Ghana ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent stuff – and a much-needed look at the funky 70s scene in Ghana! Much of the Afro Funk that's been revived over the past few years has come from the Nigerian scene – so it's great to hear this set of funky tunes from Ghana, a rich selection of grooves with a slightly harder edge than some other African work we've heard, and a rhythmic pulse that leans heavily towards work of American funk acts of the time. Drums, bass, and other percussion abound – and the tunes have a sweetly bubbling funky feel that's nice and soulful! Very well done – with a total of 14 tracks, and a very thorough set of notes – and including the cuts "Because Of Money" by The Third Generation, "Mother Africa" by Marijata, "Heaven" by Ebo Taylor, "Simigwado" by Gyedu Blay Ambolley, "Psychedelic Woman" by Honey & The Bees Band, "Make It Fast Make It Slow" by Rob, "Nite Safarie" by The Black Star Sound, and "Bukom Mashie" by Oscar Sulley.

✨✧ VariousChange The Beat – The Celluloid Records Story 1979 to 1987 ... CD
Celluloid/Strut (UK), Late 70s/1980s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Hip hop, street soul, and lots lots more – a really revolutionary selection of music from the legendary Celluloid Records – a label that was virtually a genre unto itself! Celluloid was a key force tying together the New York downtown scene at the start of the 80s, and the postcolonial music world of Paris – and as a result, they always operated with a culture-crossing style that few other companies of the time managed to hit – merging together sounds in really unlikely ways, and often coming up with fresh new styles in the process! The label's known for crate-diggers for its hip hop releases – and to world music fans for its electric Africa work – but they also were on the forefront of New York No Wave, avant jazz, and post-punk – and somehow found a way to integrate both young new talents, and older experimentalists who still had plenty to offer. This package finally does Celluloid justice – and goes way past the few simplistic comps of the label's work over the years – training the skilled Strut ear to the whole thing, and also serving up the full story of the label in the process. Titles include "I'm The One" by Material, "Day Tripper" by Shockabilly, "Tele Apres La Meteo" by Fredinand, "Disco Rough (long version)" by Mathematiques Modernes, "Electrique Sylvie (full length version)" by Modern Guy, "Mean Machine Chant/Mean Machine" by Last Poets, "Abele Dance ('85 rmx)" by Manu Dibango, "Change The Beat (French & English)" by Fab 5 Freddy, "The Escapades Of Futura 2000" by Futura 2000 with The Clash, and "Downing Street Rock" by Winston Edwards & Blackbeard. 26 tracks in all!

VariousLivin The Night Life – 80s New York Garage Classics ... CD
Back Beat (UK), 1980s. Used ... $8.99
Not just the sort of garage you might guess from the title – but also a batch of early 80s numbers from the New York scene – the kind of club cuts that played strongly back in the legendary years of Paradise Garage! Most tracks are the original 12" mix, which means they're nice and long – and there's a good mix of street soul, pre-house, and post-disco elements going on here – a nicely varied blend of tracks that includes "Ma Foom Bay (love chant mix)" by Cultural Vibe, "You Don't Know (rmx)" by Serious Intention, "Weekend" by Class Action, "I Like What You're Doing To Me" by Young & Co, "Treat Her Sweeter" by Paul Simpson Connection, "In & Out Of My Life" by Adeva, "Hupendin Muziki Wangu" by KID, "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" by Cuba Gooding, "Go Bang #5" by Dinosaur L, and "Music Is The Answer" by Colonel Abrams.

✨✧ VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 1 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
Part 1 of the legendary compilation series of James Brown Productions for his own People Records imprint – with monster tracks by The JBs, Lyn Collins, and Maceo! Now a long-established treasure trove of stone classic funky soul, it's easy to forget that the deeper legacy of the People Records roster was pretty well overshadowed by James Brown's pivotal figure for quite a few years before this hugely necessary series. It was a sampler's dream in the 80s, and it's still a listener's dream – and a vital overview of once overlooked gems! Tracks include "Same Beat" by the Fred Wesley & The JBs, "Parrty" by Maceo & The Macks, "If You Don't Get It The First Time" by Fred Wesley & The JBs, "Take Me Just As I Am" by Lyn Collins, "Rock Me Again & Again & Again & Again" by Lyn Collins, "Hot Pants Road" by The JBs, "Mama Feelgood" by Lyn Collins, "Think" by Lyn Collins, and "Gimme Some More" by The JBs!

VariousMighty Mellow 2 The Sequel – A Psycho-Funk Resurrection ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1999. Used ... $16.99
Call it psycho-funk, call it Brit easy, call it downtempo abstract – whatever the case, it's all great! This second volume in one of our favorite all-time series is a stunner – and it comes up with a sparkling blend of very fresh grooves that we've only ever heard matched by a few other compilations over the past few years. The general vibe is rare soundtrack and sophisticated jazz funk material – and a huge amount of these cuts come from sources we've never seen before! Tracks include "The Rub" by Alan Tew, "Pretexte Indicatifs" by Guy Pederson, "Abstraction" by Projection, "Plummer Park" by Pete Jolly, "My Love For You & The Ugly" by Ed Green, "Beach Buggy" by Pierre Duchamp, "Beat Construction" by David Seeland Band, "Sour Soul" by Gentle Rain, "Night Is Blues" by Performance, "Name Of The Game" by Brian Bennet, and "Bass In Action #1" by Tonio Rubio. 19 cuts in all!

A really tremendous collection of Chicago house tracks – put together with a real understanding of the underground groove that bubbled through the best years of the Windy City scene!

✨✧ VariousStudio One Scorcher – Instrumentals ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Solid!! 19 burning shots of prototypical island jams! The sounds of Studio One have been passed down from generation to generation of musicians, even being sampled by some of today's digital producers, and recut in version after version, and with their series of Studio One reissues, Soul Jazz illustrates why. Coxsonne Dodd was not only a genius producer of rhythms, but assembled some of the finest musicians not just on the island, but anywhere in the world to cut these mighty tracks, including the Skatalites "Coconut Rock", Cedric Im Brooks "Mun-Dun-Gu", Tommy McCook "Shocker's Rock", Jackie Mittoo & Ernest Ranglin "Jerico Skank", Karl Bryan & Teh Afrokats "Money Generator", Lester Sterling "Afrikaan Beat", Sound Dimension "Heavy Rock", Sugar Belly "In Cold Blood", Soul Bros "Bugaloo", Vin Gordon 'Red Blood", Pablove Black "Push Pull" and Karl Bryan & Count Ossie "Black Up".
