VariousBeat Vol 2 – Lounge At Cinevox ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $8.99
Fab and groovy! The Cinevox label was home to some of the swinginest soundtrack music to come out of Italy in the 60s and 70s – but lots of it's been buried for years, or relegated to pricey Japanese-only reissues. This set does a great job of correcting that problem – by sampling some of the greatest grooves from the legendary label, serving them up in a very strong 16 track set that's filled with loads of wonderful moments that you won't find elsewhere! Tracks include "Diamonds" by Franco Bixio, "Quicksilver (new edit)" by Giorgio Gaslini, "Car Chase At Margellina" by Guido e Maurizio De Angelis, "Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio, "Blue Rhythm Festival (new edit)" by Piero Piccioni, "Crazy Sax" by Augusto Martelli, and "Break" by Franco Bixio.

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.

✨✧ VariousInner City Beat – Detective Themes, Spy Music & Imaginary Thrillers 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used CD & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of sound library funk from the UK – a scene that served up some of the rarest grooves of the 70s! The music is every bit as funky as American work from the early 70s – like records from CTI, or blacksploitation soundtracks – but most of it was never issued on vinyl at the time, as it was circulated only for use in film and television – recorded by an elite group of players for very limited use. The rarity is only part of the appeal, though – as the overall vibe is great – and the record has the same instantly appealing feel as other jazz, funk, and soul collections from the always-great Soul Jazz label. This time around, they do a great job of turning their ear towards the rich sound libraries of companies like KPM, DeWolfe, and Conroy – and come up with a double-length batch of funky instrumentals that includes "The Hell Raisers" and "Danger Musicians At Work" by Syd Dale, "Fuel Injection" and "Crossflow" by Ernest Copley, "Superformance" and "Men Of Action" by David Lindup, "Cross Talk" and "Funky Chimes" by Francis Coppieters, "Theme From New Scotland Yard" by Norrie Paramour, "Come One Come All" by Brass Incorporated, "Sparks" by Peter Reno & Barry Stoller, "Gotta Getaway" by Dave Richmond, "Transit" by Clive Hicks, "The Ratcatchers" by Tilsley Orchestral, "Grand Prix" by Johnny Pearson, and "Conveyer Belt" and "Workshop" by Johnny Hawksworth.

VariousIn-Kraut 2 – Hip Shaking Grooves Made In Germany 1967 to 1974 ... CD
Marina (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
The second fab volume of one of our favorite compilation series ever – a brilliant document of funky and groovy tunes recorded in Germany at the end of the 60s! The sound here is way different than most other collections we've stocked – a weird mix of funky jamming, psychedelic production, mod soundtrack moments, and other unusual bits – most of which are given a slightly unusual German twist! The sheer brilliance of the set is hard to sum up in words – but take it from us, the collection is one of freshest and most unusual you'll ever hear – and it's put together beautifully, with great graphics and full notes on each and every track! Titles include "Black Night" by Hugo Strasser, "This Is Soul" by Paul Nero, "Get It On" by Klaus Weiss, "Soul March" by James Last, "Pealed Tomato" by Tommy Haggard, "Wildkatze" by Christer Bladin, "Swingle Beat" by Ambros Seelos, "Holiday Time" by Hildegard Knef, "Rock In" by Dometown Gang, "No No No" by Dieter Reith, "Run Away" by Joy &The Hit Kids, "Blauer Montag" by Mary Roos, and "Kamera Song" by Inner Space.

✨✧ VariousBlue 'N Groovy – Blue Note Connects With The Good Vibes ... CD
Blue Note, Mid 60s/1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent collection of jazzy grooves from Blue Note, and one that moves past their usual breakbeat/Lou Donaldson/funk grooves, into a mode that's more modal, and with a more complicated vibe. Tracks include "On Children" by Jack Wilson, "8/4 Beat" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Tom Thumb" by Wayne Shorter, "Ping Pong" by Art Blakey, "Jeannine" by Donald Byrd, "Canteloupe Island" by Herbie Hancock, and lots lots more. Plenty of nice samples, and lots of good grooves! CD

✨✧ VariousRed Hot & Fela ... CD
Knitting Factory, 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest entries in the Red Hot series so far – a set of tracks dedicated to the legendary Fela Kuti – felled by AIDS after years of influential grooves – still being felt strongly by the rich array of artists collected in the set! Most tracks are contemporary, but feature a strong influence of the 70s modes of Fela's generation – those sharp percussive lines at the bottom of the tracks, soaring Afro-styled horn passages, and a righteous energy that really drives the whole thing all the way through! The package was put together in support of AIDS/HIV awareness, but is hardly an act of charity – as it's overflowing with great cuts that more than make the set stand as an Afro Funk collection on its own. Most tracks are remakes of older Fela numbers – and titles include "Buy Africa" by Baloiji & L'Orchestre De A Katuba, "Yellow Fever" by Spoek Mathambo & Zaki Ibrahim, ""Gentleman" by Just A Band & Baja, "Go Slow" by King, "Sorro Tears & blood" by Kronos Quartet & Kyp Malone, "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am" by My Morning Jacket, "Afrodisco Beat 2013" by Tony Allen & M1, and Lady" by Tune Yards, ?uestlove, and Angelique Kidjo.

✨✧ VariousShake Sauvage – French Soundtracks 1968-1973 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy stuff! In the best tradition of Crippled Dick's Italian soundtrack compilations – Beat At Cinnecita – the label has now dug through the rich rich tradition of French soundtrack grooves, and has come up with a spectacular set of cuts that run from sitar psychedelic to rare jazzy grooves! The track list is stunning – and most of these cuts haven't ever been properly reissued before. Plus, since many French soundtracks were only issued in 7" single or e.p. formats, you'll probably never even track down a full LP for this material – making it as rare as most of our funky 45s! The groove is as perfect as you'd expect, and it's about time that somebody finally started digging into the wealth of great music from France. Titles include "Juke Boxes Chez Saidani" by Philippe Sarde, "Full Speed" by Claude Bolling, "Ok Chicago" by Resonance, "Kidnapping" by Karl Heinz Schafer, "Le Crocodile Porte Cle" by Bernard Gerad, "Grand Theme Malko" by Michel Magne, "Sexopolis" by Jean-Pierre Mirouze, "Sweet Bacon" by Julien Covey, "Petrol Pop" by Michel Magne & Jean Yanne, "Bowery Mood" by Vladimir Cosma, "African King" by Andre Arpino, and "Neus Dans L'Eau" by Georges Garvarentz. 18 cuts in all!

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Science 2 – Compiled By Kirk Degiorgio & Ian O'Brien ... CD
Obsessive (UK), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
Second volume in this terrific series by modern tone masters Kirk Degiorgio and Ian O'Brien. Like their own forward thinking grooves, the tracks on here are infused with a futuristic vibe, even if they date back to the 70s, with soulful splashes of electronics and rich modern tonalities. As with volume one, the spectrum covered is wide, from electronic classics like Dick Hyman's "Give It Up, Turn It Loose" and the Silver Apples "Love Fingers" to Bennie Maupin's space fusiony cut "Quasar" and Annette Peacock's modal "I'm The One" to today's brightest on the new beat scene, like Kaidi Tatham, Uschi Classen, Offworld and Super-A-Loof.
