Warner (UK), 1970s. Used 3CDs ... $34.99
A classic package of 70s grooves – despite a cloying title and cover image! The set recalls the glory days of the legendary Superbad and Superbad Is Back compilations – and brings together a rich assortment of 70s funky soul that spans the gamut from hit movie themes, classic radio tracks, and other under-discovered gems that have since gone onto become classics through their use in hip hop samples! 3CD set is overflowing with great stuff – 53 titles that include "Bring Down The Birds" by Herbie Hancock, "Bullitt" by Lalo Schifrin, "Harlem Clavinette" by JJ Johnson, "Little Ghetto Boy" by Donny Hathaway, "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William De Vaughn, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Gotcha" by Tom Scott, "The Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Are You Man Enough" by The Four Tops, "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Inside My Love" by Minnie Riperton, "The Boss" by James Brown, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "Flying Machine" by War, "The Ghetto" by Donny Hathaway, "Natural High" by Bloodstone, "The Big Battle" by Lalo Schifrin, "Love TKO" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Wiggle Waggle" by Herbie Hancock, "Nowhere To Run" by Martha Reeves, "Think" by Aretha Franklin, and "Junkyard" by War.

✨✧ VariousCTI Records – The Cool Revolution (4CD set) ... CD
CTI, 1970s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-titled little set – as the collection is as cool as the sound of CTI Records back in the 70s! The unique package features an LP-sized cover – just like one of the CTI gatefold albums from back in the day – which contains 4 different CDs, each with a slightly different take on the sound of the legendary label! CD 1 is titled Straight Up – and features amazing 70s jazz from Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, George Benson, Randy Weston, Freddie Hubbard, and others. CD 2 is titled Deep Grooves/Big Hits – and features some killer numbers by Esther Phillips, Johnny Hammond, Freddie Hubbard, Deodato, Joe Farrell, and Hank Crawford. Next is CD 3, The Brazilian Connection – a beautiful demonstration of Creed Taylor's love of sounds from Rio and beyond – filled with great work from Airto, Paul Desmond, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Stanley Turrentine, Milt Jackson, and Deodato. Last up is Cool & Classic – the 4th CD, with CTI-remade work by older players such as Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Kenny Burrell, and Jim Hall – all a perfect fit for the label's new sound of the 70s! The package also features an LP-sized booklet – filled with notes and rare images! CD
