✨✧ VariousCosmic Lounge – Presented By King Britt – A Spiritual Quest For Higher Sound ... CD
Rapster/BBE (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums to ever bear the name of King Britt – a selection of spiritual jazz tracks from the 70s, all of which show a definite inspiration for Britt's recent work in the 21st Century! There's no remixes or remakes here – and the collection features all original gems from a few decades back – stretched out and cosmic grooves from some of the leading lights of the soul jazz underground in the post-Coltrane years! Most numbers are obscure tracks licensed from smaller indie labels – brought together beautifully with a sense of depth and darkness that goes way beyond the usual King Britt groove. Titles include "Space Spy" by Grachan Moncur III, "Beyond Yourself" by Brother Ahh, "Scorpio Libra" by Eddie Henderson, "Kawaida" by Herbie Hancock, "Ekim" by Michal Urbaniak, "Yebo" by Mtume, "Conviction" by Dane Belany, "Naima" by Doug & Jean Carn, "The Time Now For Change" by Phil Ranelin, "Moving Pictures 4 The Ear" by Don Cherry, and "Encounter" by Flora Purim.

✨✧ VariousHappy Days Vol 1 – Original Disco & Funk Joints Remastered ... CD
Sony (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kind of an odd title, but a great little collection – one that features some real gems from the late 70s/early 80s club years – all sophisticated groovers, often with a nice touch of jazz! The set mixes together older RCA and Columbia tracks – and goes for a good blend of singles with overlooked album cuts – in a sweet selection that includes "It's In The Blood" by Linda Hopkins, "Runnin" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Sunburst" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "My Mind Is Hazy" by Chocolate Milk, "What's The Name Of This Funk (Spider Man)" by Ramsey Lewis, "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" by Herbie Hancock, "Pipeline" by Bruce Johnston, and "Keep It Hot" by Cheryl Lynn.

✨✧ VariousLife:Styles Bugz In The Attic ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive massive groove party from Bugz In The Attic – one that's overflowing with sweet 70s jazz, funk, and soul! This may well be our favorite entry in the Life:Styles series so far – and it's certainly the most unified collection, thanks to a keen ear for a mellow-grooving classic track! The overall feel almost takes us back to the great sound of the legendary Capitol Rare compilations – and the territory here is very similar, with a strong focus on jazz-inflected soul tunes from the end of the 70s and early 80s – of the sort we never tire of hearing! The whole thing's a modern soul lover's delight – and the 2CD set features a whopping 20 tracks in all, including "Endless Flight" by Rodney Franklin, "Chicago" by Roy Ayers, "Think" by Carole Sylvan, "Gonna Make You Mine" by Loose Ends, "Come For The Ride" by Tom Browne, "Sweet Thing" by Convertion, "In My Dreams" by Will Downing, "Come To Me" by Jermaine Jackson, "Heavy Love Affair" by Marvin Gaye, "Good Lovin Is Good Livin" by Creative Source, "I Choose You" by Paris, "Sunshowers" by Dr Buzzard, "I Feel Like Lovin You Today" by Donald Byrd, "Sun Touch" by Herbie Hancock, and "Gamblers Life" by Johnny Hammond.
