VariousPulp Fusion Revival Boogie Down – Original Revival Ghetto Jazz & Funk Classics ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... $8.99
The Pulp Fusion series makes a funky move towards the dancefloor – shifting from its earlier blend of older funk and jazz tunes into a more club-styled set that features some wonderful boogie groovers! The overall sound is still quite funky, but compiler DJ Pogo has opened the mix to including some excellent bits from the end of the 70s – tracks that were some of the heavier numbers of the disco era, and which show that funk made a great transition to the dancefloor during the time! There's still some choice older bits of funk, but the later tracks actually really are what make this set a great one – opening the sound up a lot past oft-sampled classics. 2CD set features 1 disc that's mixed live by DJ Pogo, plus 1 disc of unmixed tracks – featuring 13 titles that include "You Can't Hide" by David Joseph, "Candy" by Cameo, "Love Will Bring Us Back Together" by Roy Ayers, "You Bet Your Love" by Herbie Hancock, "Touch Me" by Wish & Fonda Rae, "Bounce Rock Skate Roll (part 1)" by Vaughan Mason & Crew, "Dance Across The Floor" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Gonna Make You Mine" by Loose Ends, "Turn The Music Up" by Players Association, "Do It To The Music" by Raw Silk, and "Flashlight" by Parliament.

✨✧ VariousEssential Blue – Modern Luxury – Compiled By Mitsuru Ogawa ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We're not sure what they mean by "Modern Luxury", but this is a pretty great little compilation – one that offers up a really fresh take on the Blue Note label! The sounds here aren't just the familiar hardbop, funk, or soul jazz of other Blue Note sets – and instead, many of the tracks here have a complicated, sophisticated approach to rhythm – one that starts with modal moments, then grows into something even fresher – a range of wonderful sounds and tones that really sound great together. The artists are all familiar, but the track selection and ordering of the collection really make the whole thing sound pretty fresh and new – a tremendous tribute to the depth of Blue Note, and the way the label still continues to surprise our ears over the years. Tracks include "Abdullah & Abraham" by Chico Hamilton, "Utopia" by McCoy Tyner, "On Children" by Jack Wilson, "The Loner" by Donald Byrd, "One Shirt" by Blue Mitchell, "Theme For Relana" by Gene Harris, "Friends" by Horace Silver, "Little Messenger" by Curtis Fuller, "Meat Wave" by Stanley Turrentine, "Kamba" by Moacir Santos, "Mira" by Andrew Hill, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, and "Succotash" by Herbie Hancock.

Easy to groove on down with music this great – a totally sweeeeet collection of rare club tracks, with a range of styles that runs from underground disco to obscure 80s boogie!
