Various90s House & Garage – Compiled By Joey Negro – Part 2 ... LP
Z Records (UK), 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
The 90s was a huge decade for dance music, but it was also a time in which some of the best work often got overlooked next to the hits – especially the kind of cool underground tracks compiled here! Back in the day, Joey Negro was making lots of great music like this – so he's a perfect choice to put together a collection of this nature – which really focuses on the deepest, most soulful sounds of the 90s house scene – and not the more commercial work that was cluttering up the charts! Lots of the tracks here carry that underground vibe that had sprung up in New Jersey and New York after the initial wave of house from Chicago – almost a return to some of the more deeply soulful modes of the disco generation after the colder beats from the Midwest, but still with rhythms that have all the sharp focus of house at its best. Titles include "Joy (Kerri's kaoz gone insane)" by Janet Rushmore, "Gotta Work (final take)" by Robert Owens, "Got The Bug" by Bougie Soliterre, "Ncameu (Ron Trent main mix)" by USG, "The Murder Track" by Mike Delgado, "Mighty Power Of Love (Mood II Swing vox mix)" by Leee John, and "That Special Melody (Q mix)" by Station Q.

VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

✨✧ VariousCzech Up Vol 1 – Chain Of Fools – Czechoslovak Freak Beat, Fuzz Soul, Female Pop, Disco Fancy, Jazz Funk – 1966 to 1978 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
Fierce funky sounds from Czechoslovakia – all recorded during a time when the nation was going through a huge cultural revolution! It's a well-known fact that the Czech scene of the 60s and 70s was one of the hippest behind the Iron Curtain – but while Czech films and literature gained quite a bit of attention in the western world at the time, most of their music hardly ever had a chance to cross the border – which makes this sweet collection a real musical discovery! The work here all comes from the vaults of Supraphon Records – and many of the groups seem to have a core inspiration in some sort of jazz – either 60s soul jazz, 70s fusion, or some of the jazz-rock modes that were big in the European scene of the time – all of which makes for great grooves throught, no matter what the setting – and some surprisingly strong links to American soul sounds of the 60s, which no doubt made their way to Prague through the UK and German beat groups of the time. The package is overflowing with band names and song titles you'll never be able to pronounce, but the music has a really universal appeal to fans of funk and soul, and maybe freakbeat as well – on titles that include "Zlom Vaz" by Flamingo, "Leto Leto" by Eva Pilarova, "Beat" by Ferdinan Havlik, "I've Never Been So Young" by Karel Gott, "Barbarella" by Waldemar Matuska, "Ja Nechci Mit" by Jitka Zelenkova & The Gondolan Brothers, "Polobotka" by Jazz Cellula, "Yvsoka Hra" by Viktor Sodoma, "Jedeme Dal" by Bezinky, "Nestuj A Pojd" by Golden Kids, and "Kyvadio" by Discobolos.

VariousDaniel Wang's Personal West End Megamix ... CD
West End/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
We're not sure how "personal" this mix might be – given that it's on a CD for commercial sale – but we can say that it's plenty great, and a wonderful collection of rare gems from the catalog of disco powerhouse West End Records! Daniel Wang embraces all the upbeat, quick-jamming qualities of the label right from the start – and serves up a blistering non-stop mix of cuts that touches on many of the best moments from West End – cuts that both have soulful vocals soaring over the top, and some mighty heavy rhythms on the bottom! Titles include "Speak Well (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Philly USA, "Let's Go Dancin (club version)" by Sparque, "Give Your Body Up To The Music (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Billy Nichols, "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman (inst)" by Sounds Of Inner City, "Heat You Up (melt down mix)" by Shirley Lites, "Ride On The Rhythm" by Mahogany, "Can't You Feel It" by Michele, "I Was Born This Way (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Carl Bean, "Another Man" by Barbara Mason, and "Searchin For Some Lovin" by Debbie Trusty.

✨✧ VariousGimme A Break – 70s Breakbeats & Future Samples ... CD
Backbeats (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99
A heady helping of hip hop samples – a collection that works plenty well on its own as a sweet batch of rare funky tracks, yet one that also features plenty of bits you'll recognize from famous samples too! The package features some great tracks used heavily in the early days of hip hop samples – kind of a return to the glory that the Harmless label first brought us with their wonderful collections The Breaks, from a decade or so ago! Titles include "Theme From The Planets" by Dexter Wansel, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Laura Lee, "I'm Glad You're Mine" by Al Green, "Razor Blade" by Little Royal, "Uphill Piece Of Mind" by Kid Dynamite, "Lovomaniacs" by Boobie Knight & The Universal Lady, "Come In Out Of The Rain" by Parliament, "Schoolboy Crush" by Average White Band, "I Can't Stop" by John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, "Wikka Wrap" by The Evasions, "Are You My Woman" by The Chi-Lites, "Devil With The Bust" by Sound Experience, and "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne.

VariousHouse That Jackmaster Hater Built ... CD
Still Music, Late 80s/2014. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Rare tracks from the glory days of Chicago house – most of which were never issued at the time, mixed with current tracks that have a very vintage feel! The collection brings to light some real gems that certainly match – if not top – the best Chicago cuts, especially work from the acid years – and most of these numbers are instrumentals that feature lots of great keyboard bits and electronics. Some cuts are also more contemporary – newer recordings by Jackmaster Hater, aka record dealer K Starke – but done in the most stripped-down vibe of the vintage years – which makes for a seamless flow of music between the cuts, so much so it's hard to tell which tracks are old, and which are new. Titles on the 2CD set include "Newton's Sleep" by Jordan Zawideh, "Tracky 2" by Jackmaster Hater, "Cut By A Laser" by Cyrstalite feat Kristen, "Only Wanted To Be (unreleased acid version)" by James Jackrabbit Martin, "Jaws" by Kevin Starke, "Track 1 (Ron Hardy edit)" by Unknown, "Acid Dreams (Ron Hardy edit)" by Unknown, "Drum Track" by Jackmaster Hater, "Jack The Box (JD's edit)" by Terrence Woodard, "First Daze" by Jordan Zawideh, "Happiness (Ron Hardy edit)" by Unknown, and "Rabbit Trax 1" by James Jackrabbit Martin.

VariousLegendary Studio One – Original Classic Recordings 1963 to 1980 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A great set of purely classic level Studio One material – great stuff from the early 60s onward to around 1980 – and unfailingly amazing all the way through! Studio One opened up in the fall of '63, and soon after, the best of the best of Jamaican music greats of the time were wanting to record there for Coxsone Dodd. The set features the unstoppable rhythms of The Skatalites and timeless greatness from The Heptones, Maytals, Horace Andy, Lone Ranger, Freddy McKay, Wailing Souls, Willie Williams, Marcia Griffiths, Dub Specialist, Doreen Schaeffer, Ernest Ranglin and many more. 18 tracks in all: "Ball Of Fire" and "Fidel Castro" by The Skatalites, "I'm Your Man" by The Heptones, "Watch Your Step" by Freedy McKay, "Mr Music" by Pablove Black, "Sitting With Stupid" by Dub Specialist, "Let Me Hold You Tight" by Marcia Griffins, "Treat Me Bad" by The Maytals, "Everything She Want" by Lone Ranger and more.

VariousStudio One Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Another chapter in the Studio One story, as told by the top notch selectors at Soul Jazz, and as with the earlier editions in their Studio One series, this one's another mighty batch of Jamaican rhythm and blues. Like so many other Coxsone Dodd productions, you can hear the foundations of many future generations of Jamaican music running through these titles, 17 jaunty ska numbers laced with jazz inflected solos laid down by Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo and the Skatalites, or harmonized vocals courtesy the Ethiopians, Maytals and others. As you've come to expect, this is an ace package with excellent notes and archival photos, loaded down with classic performances and hard to get nuggets, too! With Jackie Mittoo's "El Bang Bang", Ken Boothe & Stranger Cole "Arte Bella", The Wailers "Put It On", The Skatalites "Addis Ababa" and "Exodus", Joe Higgs "I'm The Song My Enemies Sing", Delroy Wilson "I Want Justice", Tommy McCook "Sampson" and "Freedom Sounds", The Maytals "Marching On", Don Drummond "Don Cosmic", Andy & Joey "You're Wondering Now" and more!

VariousSo Soulful 70s ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
A 70s soul treasure chest! This excellent CD sorts through some incredible lost sides on the Atlantic catalog of the 70s – and it features an amazing selection of work by artists who only ever cut singles or one-off LPs for the label and its subsidiaries. The overall groove is sweet, mellow, and very soulful – and titles include "Just My Way Of Loving You" by Garland Green, "Let Me Show You" by Larry Wu, "I'm So Happy" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Come On, Let Me Love You" by Moses Smith, "Save Your Love For Me" by Vivian Reed, "Kiss My Love Goodbye" by Bettye Swann, "The Rising Cost Of Love" by Darrow Fletcher, "Baby Don't Hold Your Love Back" by Bridge, "You're Too Hot To Hold" by Barbara Lynn, "You Got The Best Of Me" by Ronn Matlock, "Love Bandit" by Patti & The Lovelites, and "Got To Get You Back" by Sons Of Robin Stone. 24 cuts in all – with loads of rare stuff!

VariousBrunswick Bubblers – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brunswick/Octave (Japan), New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The legendary Gilles Peterson turns his magical ears to the catalog of Brunswick Records – and comes up with some of the label's hippest tunes of the 60s and 70s! Brunswick is best known for its famous soul hits of the late 60s and early 70s, but Peterson goes much deeper to come up with overlooked gems that are then laid out in a way that really makes them resonate strongly together – at a level that really illustrates the unified groove of the label! Brunswick often worked with a tight array of producers, arrangers, and session players – and Peterson finds key links between these tunes, often in surprising places – which makes the collection a real delight once you start stepping through it. Titles include "Keep On Dancing" by Bohannon, "Inner City Blues" by The Chi-Lites, "Harlem" by Willie Henderson, "This Is The Lost Generation" by The Lost Generation, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Gregory James Edition, "Light My Fire" by Jackie Wilson, "Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse, "Will I Find Love" by Gene Chandler, "This Love Is Real" by Dana Valery, and "Go With Love" by Barbara Acklin.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not disco hits or the overplayed classics you may know from too many weddings – but a wonderfully deep selection of underground cuts that shows that there's still plenty of rare gems to discover from the 70s club scene! The set's put together by the man who wrote the book on rare disco mixes (literally!) – and he's got a great ear for the kinds of cuts that still sound incredibly fresh all these many years later – work that may well have been so ahead of its time, it's taken the passage of decades to finally give it its due! Most of these tracks strip down to the best elements of underground disco – the kinds of basslines, rhythm parts, and funky instrumentation that still leaves us breathless over the years – and as usual, Soul Jazz have done a bang-up job with the whole package too. Titles on this part 1 of the vinyl version include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Groove On Down" by Dunn Pearson Jr, "Micro Wave Boogie" by Skip Jackson & The Natural Experience, "Come Inside" by Shades Of Love, "Rock A Freak" by Needa, "Disco Strut" by Creme De Coco", and "What Can I Do To Make You Dance" by Anita Maldondo.

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soundtrack funk doesn't get any better than this – thanks to a head-expanding of tracks from the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s – served up with the usual ear for a great cut by the folks at Easy Tempo! The groove here is far from the "easy" you might expect – and most numbers have tight drums, funky basslines, and other heavy elements – all put together with an approach to the music that's far different than anything happening in the US at the time, especially in the way the instruments sound in the end – and in the way that the production techniques make them do really crazy things! Titles include "Parangua" by Luiz Bacalov, "Flirt a Rio" by Piero Umiliani, "Side Sleep" by Berto Pisano, "Little Shakie Girl" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tremendous Stars" by Piero Piccioni, "Under Drama" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Realta No 5" by Stelvio Cipriani, "So" by Lara Saint Paul, "Israelites" by Capuano, and "Citta Viva" by Ennio Morricone.

✨✧ VariousInner City Beat – Detective Themes, Spy Music & Imaginary Thrillers 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 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.

✨✧ VariousLost & Found – The Blue Rock Records Story ... CD
Blue Rock/Mercury, Late 60s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing chapter in the history of Chicago soul – a deep look at the ultra-hip Blue Rock subsidiary of Mercury Records – home to a host of amazing singles back in the 60s! Blue Rock was only around for a few years, but managed to record some really great music – soul tunes that rival the greatness of better-known Chicago soul work on Brunswick or Okeh, bluesy bits that almost beat Chess at their own game, and some grittier grooves that feel like the best indie sides you might find on Windy City labels like Twinight or Dakar. The package is filled with amazing Chicago cuts – 60 numbers that really make us proud to be living in the powerhouse of the midwest – brought together with a level of hipness we'd hardly expect from a major label collection. Titles include "Let Her Love Me" by Otis Leavill, "Baby What's Wrong" by Johnnie Mae Matthews, "Got No Excuse" by James Crawford, "Look At Me" by The Deletts, "Baby Don't Leave Me" by Jimmy Holland, "Does Anybody Love Me" by Joyce Kennedy, "I Won't Let Her See Me Cry" by Big Frank & The Essences, "Baby Boy" by Janeen Henry, "Come On & Love Me" by Dizzy Jones, "Cheaters Never Get Anywhere" by Big Tim & The Empires, "She's Mine" by The Chi-Lites, "Darling I'll Get Along Somehow" by Reggie Lamont, "Don't Go Away" by Reginald Domino, "Ooo Baby" by Bobby Hutton, "Lost & Found" by Kenny Carlton, "You're Tuff Enough" by Jr Wells, "A Grown Man Cry" by Chino Feaster, " Over My Dead Body" by Benny & Tina, "Checkin Out" by The Festivals, "Love Ain't Never Hurt Nobody" by Brenda Duff, and "I'm In Your Corner" by Roy Hytower.

✨✧ VariousCold Heat – Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974 Vol 1 ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Stones Throw does it again – with a massive batch of older funk rarities that tops most of the rest on the market! Cold Heat is a follow-up to the label's smoking Funky 16 Corners set – and like that one, it's overflowing with great bits that have barely (or never) been heard by the rest of the world at large. Compiler Egon has gone through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos – and has come up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum – and some tracks are by names that are finally getting their due, thanks to the work of Ego, Wax Poetics, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the past few years. In a way, the collection's a summation of some of the singles and reissues coming out through the Now Again/Stones Throw imprint – but it also features some other bits and alternate versions that are totally great! Titles include "Don't Go" by Aristocrats Organization, "Loaded To The Gills (edit)" by Michael Liggins & The Supersouls, "Mr Chicken (alternate)" by The Soul Seven, "Slipping Into Darkness" by Dayton Sidewinders, "James Brown Medley" by The Apollo Commanders, "Scorpio" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Sad Chicken" by Leroy & The Drivers, "Street Scene" by Leon Mitchinson, "Free Your Mind" by Amnesty, "The Thing" by Carleen & The Groovers, "Go For Yourself (edit)" by Kenny Smith & The Loveliters, and "The Stretch (edit)" by Detroit Sex Machines.

Peoples Potential, 1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing rare soul from the 80s – most of it so obscure, it hardly got any circulation at the time! The package was put together by Peoples Potential – that ultra-hip label that's dedicated to finding funk so rare, few folks have ever heard it before – including unreleased nuggets by obscure local acts around the country, most of whom never got any notice outside their immediate region! Because of that, the set's an amazing discovery in music – filled with tremendous little cuts we'd never have stumbled upon otherwise – wicked groovers that are heavy in boogie influences, but also run a nice spectrum of 80s groove – with some occasional old school influences thrown into the mix as well. Almost all tracks are uptempo, and there's a nicely low-fi aesthetic that unites all these cuts from disparate sources – titles that include "Tasty Tune" by Minority Band, "Universal Language" by Ballplayers, "Get The Feelin" by TMS, "Time To Throw Down" by JPs Force, "Hold That Groove" by Jim Bennett, "Candy Man" by Caprice, "Mizz Mean" by Saavy, "You Know I Love You" by George Smallwood, "All Party People" by Mix-O-Rap, "By My Side" by Checker Kabb, "Rejuvenate The Funk" by Satellite Band, "Funky Beat" by Crunch, and "Message In The Music" by Initials.
