✨✧ VariousMobilisation Generale – Protest & Spirit Jazz From France 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the Parisian jazz community of the early 70s – a scene that had as much late 60s revolutionary energy as the American one – and which steps forth here in a beautiful blend of righteous themes and really far-reaching styles! The politics of the set are obvious from the cover and title – but there's also a deeply spiritual feel, too – that same sense of searching in the post-Coltrane generation of the US, but played out in a host of very different ways that make the music a great new discovery! American musicians interacted heavily with French jazz players in the post-1968 scene – and you can definitely hear that influence at work, mixed with other creative European modes that really give the music a special cross-cultural feel. Some key elements of the post-colonial scene are at play as well – and titles include "De L'Orient A L'Orion" by RK Nagati, "Attention L'Armee" by Atarpop 73 & Le Collectif Le Temps Des Cerises, "Samba Miaou" by Full Moon Ensemble, "Le Cri" by Michel Roques, "Hey" by Chene Noir, "Athee Ou A Te" by Beatrice Arnac, "Nous Ouvrirons Les Casernes" by Mahjun, "Je Suis Un Sauvage" by Alfred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and "Les Elephants" by Frederic Rufin & Raphael Lecomte.

✨✧ VariousNorthern Clubbing – Hot Wax & Invictus Dance Floor ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not Northern Soul of the 60s – but a fresh wave of Detroit soul from the early 70s – all put together by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team who were such a big part of Motown in the decade before! The grooves here all have this rich, upbeat feel that's definitely in the Northern Soul mode – but production is tighter, and backings are often even more powerful – a bold new vibe for the 70s, which packs a hell of a lot of punch into the grooves! Vocals are hip, too – deeper soul than you might hear from the Motown hits – which really brings a meaningful edge to the lyrics. CD features 18 tracks in all – including "Bump Your Lady" by Natural High, "I'm So Glad" by Brian Holland, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "You Made Me Over" by Melvin Davis, "Colors Of My Love" by Silent Majority, "Women's Love Rights" by Laura Lee, "Trapped In A Love" by The Barrino Brothers, and "Crumbs Off The Table" by The 8th Day.
