✨✧ 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.

VariousSuperbad Vol 1 – The Very Best Of Blaxploitation, 70s Movie Themes & Funk Soul Classics ... LP
Warner (UK), 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
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! 2LP set features 15 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, and "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFree Soul Graffiti ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1998. Used ... Just Sold Out!
This 17 track set of rare soul is a great entry in the great Japanese tradition of "free soul" compilations of stuff from the 70's! Perhaps a better title might have been "rare modern soul", because the set brings together a nicely collected batch of tracks from the Sony/Columbia catalog that never show up on CD these days. Some of the tracks might be familiar, but there's also some lost soulful gems from obscure albums that are well worth searching out – and leave it to the Japanese to turn you onto them! Titles include "Let It Go" by Pages, "Strawberry Letter 23" by Shuggie Otis, "Making Love" by Herbie Hancock, "Cause You Love Me Baby" by Denice Williams, "Let This River Flow" by Googie & Tom Coppola, "Now (Sweet Lover Man)" by Sharon Redd and Ula Hedvig, "Anytime" by Kokomo, and "I'll Go Where The Music Takes Me" by Tina Charles. Lots more, and a groove that runs from midtempo modern to more club-oriented 70s soul tracks! CD
(Includes obi, small import sticker on booklet cover.)

✨✧ VariousPlanter's Club Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wicked set of smooth soul tracks – one of the best collections of mellow grooves we've heard in a long time! The set was put together by Austrian DJ Samir, but it's all-American all the way through – with some really wonderful numbers from the 70s, famous tracks and rare ones stacked together nicely, in a way that makes sides in both categories sound really fresh together! Titles include the great Larry Mizell groover "Where Are We Going", done by Marvin Gaye – plus "Leave Me Alone" by Milton Wright, "To Know You Is To Love You" by Syreeta & Stevie Wonder, "Stars In Your Eyes" by Herbie Hancock, "Far Cry" by Marvin Gaye, "Slow Dance" by David Ruffin, "Get Off In It" by Eddie Hinton, "Woman" by James Brown, "I Just Can't Keep On Going" by Tyrone Davis, "Moonlight Lovin/Menage A Trois" by Isaac Hayes, "True Love" by Al Green, and "You're So Good" by Randy Brown. 14 tracks in all!
