✨✧ VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

✨✧ VariousDanny Krivit Introduces P&P Records – Killer Underground Funk, Soul, Rap & Disco Breaks From New York's Legendary P&P Records ... CD
P&P/Suss'd (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the greatest look at the P&P family of labels we've heard so far – but that's really no surprise, given that the man at the helm of the project is legendary DJ and club collector Danny Krivit! Krivit's look at the label goes deeper than any we've heard before – and really goes out of its way to bring together the full range of P&P related material from the 70s and early 80s – not just the better-known club tracks, but also some excellent soul and funky numbers too – really fleshing out our understanding of the mighty talents of Peter Brown and Patrick Adams! The work here was originally spread over a large number of indie labels – including a few that weren't P&P related, but simply licensed their productions – and Krivit's really done his homework in pulling the tracks together, as have the folks at Suss'd, who manage to come up with track-by-track notes that further illuminate the music. Styles run from uptempo club to funky soul – and most numbers here are presented in their full original 12" mixes! 2CD set features 27 tracks in all – including "I Just Want To Spend My Life With You" by Caress, "Ain't It Time" by Queen Yahna, "Everything Man" by Daybreak, "Rock Spank Freak" by High Voltage, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Rainbow Brown, "Got To Get Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Johnson Jumping" by Johnson Products, "Mr Blindman" by Donna McGhee, "The Groove I'm In" by Florence Miller, "Love Fantasy" by Reason To Live, "Guardian Angel Is Watching" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, "Pound For Pound" by Le'o Roy, "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is A Woman" by Margie Lomax, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Let's Just Stay Away" by Louise Murray, "Superstition" by Dennis Mobley & Fresh Taste, "Funk Rap" by Ikim & Bacardi, "Moan For Love" by Tony Gray & Beverly Lee, and "Stereo Funk" by Darrow & Stereo.

✨✧ VariousDjinji Brown Presents Uncle Junior's Friday Fish Fry – The Market ... CD
Uncle Junior Recordings, 1970s/2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky grooves, old and new – and a really great set that manages to effortlessly trip through time and place in search of a hot little tune! There's an earthy rhythm to most of these numbers, and the set's awash in some classic 70s funk and Latin tunes, set next to newer tracks that were clearly inspired by the older ones – and which manage to borrow their influence without sanding things down too much. The sound's got a righteous trans-global sort of feel – similar to recent work in the Spiritual Life mode – and titles include "O Mi Shango" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Rock Wit You (Osunlade's Yoruba soul mix)" by Jazzy Jeff and Erro, "Transcend Me" by Afronaught, "Noche Cubana" by Totico, "Crofs (slum dub)" by Gregory Isaacs, "Don't Take Your Love From Me" by Marion Brown, "Isto E Samba (No Comment mix)" by Grupo Batuque, "Blue Hunny (roots in the jungle mix)" by Djinji Brown, "African Battle" by Manu Dibango, and "Sands Of Time" by Vinia Mojica.

✨✧ VariousSouthern Funkin' – Louisiana Funk & Soul 1967 to 1979 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake Charles, and a variety of tiny scenes in the southwest side of Louisiana – and the result is a great batch of tunes with a really gritty, down-n-dirty sound! There's a wealth of great funky styles in the set – including James Brown-inspired jammers, southern soul burners, and some other great modes that show that Louisiana's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just New Orleans funk. Titles include work from the Anla, Murco, Soul International, Goldband, and Tic Toc labels – a total of 22 cuts that include "Soul Time" by Ernest Thomas, "Soul Feeling (parts 1 & 2)" by Eddy G Giles, "Soul Brothers Testify (part 1)" by Chester Randles Soul Senders, "Soul Power" by Abraham & The Casanovas, "Put It On" by Count Rockin Sidney with The Dukes, "Fix It" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Miss Hard To Get" by Dennis Landry, "No Sad Times" by Johnny Truit, "Black Water Gold" by African Music Machine, and "I Got A Groove" by JJ Callier.
