Warner (UK), 1970s. Used 3CDs ... $29.99
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.

✨✧ VariousCool Heat – The Best Of CTI Records ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful vocal cuts recorded by the label and it's partner imprint, Kudu – and over the course of the 25 tracks on the extended collection, you'll not only hear a great evolution in grooves for the 70s generation – but also a fair bit of tracks that have gone onto new lives as sample cuts too! Titles include "Mama Wailer" by Lonnie Smith, "Say You Love Me" by Patti Austin, "2001 – Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Deodato, "Jaws" by Lalo Schifrin, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "Supership" by George Benson, "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "Polar AC" by Freddie Hubbard, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "It's Going To Take Some Time" by Gabor Szabo, "Flute Song" by George Benson & Joe Farrell, "Forecast" by Eric Gale, "Baretta's Theme" by Ron Carter, "Breakout" by Johnny Hammond, "Wildflower" by Hank Crawford, "Knucklehead" by Grover Washington Jr, "Grand Prix" by Fuse One, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "Be Yourself" by Kenny Burrell, "Sugar" by Stanley Turrentine, "Red Clay" by Freddie Hubbard, "Super Strut" by Deodato, and "Follow Your Heart" by Joe Farrell.

✨✧ VariousYet Mo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great mix of funky jazz, jazzy funk, and funky soul – all pulled from the Atlantic catalog of the 60s, and including some very tasty numbers that were only ever issued as funky 45s! The set's one of the nicest in the great Mod Jazz series on Ace, and it's the only one to feature Atlantic material, which rarely ever gets the same funky treatment as other labels from the 60s. Titles include "The Sidewinder" by Tamiko Jones & Herbie Mann, "Do It To Death" by Jackie Ivory, "Jet Set" by Dave Pike, "Fever" by Esther Phillips, "Jam Up Twist" by Tommy Ridgely, "Sticks & Stones (part 1)" by Gene Ludwig, "Bloodshot" by Hubert Laws, "Sombrero Sam" by Charles Lloyd, "The Foolkiller" by Mose Allison, "One Note Samba" by MJQ & Laurindo Almeida, "It's A Funky Thing – Right On (part 1)" by Herbie Mann, "Watermelon Man Ska" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Trese Lobos" by Mark III Trio, "You're The Boss" by LaVern Baker & Jimmy Ricks, "Burnin Coal" by Les McCann, and "Twist City" by Matthew Gee & Johnny Griffin. 26 cuts in all – and like finding a jukebox that's lain dormant in a jazz lounge for 30 years!
