✨✧ VariousUltimate Breaks & Beats Vol 19 ... CD
Street Beat, 1970s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of the later volumes in this now classic series, one we hardly would've ever imagined would become collectible in it's own right. This volume has the records flying through space on the front and though it has 8 tracks, only Miami's "Chicken Yellow" and Lightnin Rod's "Sport" have the edited break section. The other tracks are the Blackbyrd's "Rock Creek Park", KC & The Sunshine Band "I Get Lifted", Brother Soul "Cookies", Foster Sylvers "Misdemeanor", WildSugar "Bring It Here" and the Olympic Runners "Put the Music Where Your Mouth Is".

VariousGilles Peterson In Brazil ... CD
Ether (UK), 1960s/2004. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A soaring selection of Brazilian groove – selected by the great Gilles Peterson – one of the best collections ever assembled by the world famous DJ! Gilles goes way past the obvious for the sets, which are divided into two discs – one for classic tracks (many of which are actually woefully under-appreciated, in the grand scheme) and a second disc of recent tracks and remixes. The mood is really soaring and soulful throughout – groovy sambas mingle with Brazilian jazz and soul tunes, and cheeky psychedelia-steeped 60s sunshine on the first disc. The mood on disc two is wholly reverent of the samba roots, but it's also awash in modern club grooves – with sputtering post drum & bass, a hip hop beat track sensibility on others, and a straight driving club groove on still others! Disc one (Classicos) includes "Nem Vem Que Nao Tem" by Wilson Simonal, "Berimbau" by Golden Boys, "No Caminho Do Bem" by Tim Maia, "Serrado" by Djavan, "Nana" by Os Cobras, "Zanzibar" by Sergio Mendos & Brasil '77, "Sob O Mar by Jaime E Nair, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy and more. Disc two (Da Hora) includes "Bob" by Otto (Edu K mix feat Bebel Gilberto), "Menino" by Patricia Marx & 4 Hero, "Parabens" by Marcos Valle, "Green Gold" by Spiritual South, "Malandragem" by Drumagick, "Beyond The Rains" (Drumagick city mix) by Mitchell & Dewbury featuring Billie Godfrey, "Moments Of Lust" by DJ Marky & XRS featuring Vikter Duplaix and more.

VariousGrazing In The Trash Vol 1 – Soul Fire Funk 45 Collection ... CD
Soul Fire, 2001. Used ... $6.99
Some of the best funk ever recorded in modern years! This tasty CD-only set brings together 7 funky 45s (a & b sides!) recorded for the Soul Fire label – a groundbreaking imprint that sprung out of the ashes of the Desco Records empire, with a strong dedication to producing new records with a classic funk sound. All of these titles were initially pressed up on limited edition funky 45s, and most of them are now out of print, never to be put on vinyl again. The CD is the only chance you'll now get to hear most of the material – and it's all top-shelf, A-list, classic funk all the way through! Titles include "Compin & Smokin" and "Damper Down Popcorn" by Calypso King & The Soul Investigators, "Haaa-Sheesh" and "Just Some More Haaa-Sheesh" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Soul Safari" and "Two Beat Beast" by Speedometer, "I'm The Man" and "Your Love" by Lee Fields, "Majestic Soul" and "Welfare Line" by Third Point, "There It Is" and "Hook & Sling" by The Soul Command, and even tunes from the "Soul Fire Educational" single, a mass of funky drumbreaks!

VariousHorse Meat Disco 4 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
No horsing around here – as the set may well be the most compelling so far in this mighty hip series – a wicked blend of underground club from the post-disco and post-punk generation! The tracks here definitely push towards the more obscure side of the spectrum, and really show the way that American and European funky modes were mixing together at the start of the 80s – simmering in seminal scenes on both sides of the Atlantic, and coming across with a wickedly fresh approach to funk and disco! The set features a few contemporary cuts that draw deeply from this key musical moment, but most are of older vintage – and titles include "Misaluba" by KSB, "Don't Stop" by Ish, "Ain't No Way (special club mix)" by Opal, "Stop" by Valery Allington, "Get On Down" by King Sporty & The Roots Rockers, "I Love Your Beat" by Rena, "Get Ready For The Future" by Winners, "Let's Make Love Tonight" by L'Amour feat Krystal, "Some Love" by Laura Taylor, "Barah (sampled version)" by Cleavage, and "Bee Sting" by Camouflage. 2CD set features one extended CD mix, and one disc of unmixed tracks!

✨✧ VariousAll Mixed Up – DJ Spinna Collection Part 1 ... CD
Urban Theory (UK), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We hardly need to remind any of you of the depth and breadth of DJ Spinna's skills, but just in case you're slippin' this smokin' set will help jog your memory. Like the Beat Suite mix set this one comes with a mixed and unmixed disc, but where that set focused on hip hop, this one's got a more laidback groove, with a nice mix of NuSoul, fresh jazzy cuts and even a few more club oriented numbers to keep things moving nicely, all infused with the same wonderful, soulful sensibility we love so much about Spinna's own productions. The unmixed disc has a dozen tracks, all featured in the mixed disc except for the bonus cut by Lynden David Hall "Sleeping With Victor", including Spinna's own remix of Les Nubians' "Makeda" plus Colly's Hot Box "Make Me Happy", Mark De Clive Lowe "Day By Day", Kojak "You Can't Stop It" and Terranova "Chase The Blues (Domecracker rmx)". The mix disc ups the ante a bit with nearly twice as many tracks and a smooth continuous flow that incorporates Ronny Jordan & Mos Def's "Brighter Days", Attica Blues "The Man", De La Soul's "Stakes Is High", Tek 9's "Seven Days" and 4 Hero's "Star Chasers", into the mix, alongside loads more nice, nice groovers!
