✨✧ VariousNouvelle Vague – Pop, Mambo, Cha Cha, Jazz, & Bossa Nova With A French Touch ... CD
We Want Sounds (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A cool portrait of Paris in the late 50s/early 60s years of the new wave – served up here in a collection of music from soundtracks, jazz albums, and lots of French vocal treasures from the time! The grooves definitely run the gamut of styles promised in the title – with an especially strong focus on the way that Latin rhythms really came into the Parisian modes of music, and helped create fresh instrumental interplay that opened the doors to a new variety of vocal expression too! The set list is great – and mixes favorites from the films of Truffaut, Goddard, and others with even more obscure French records of the time – on titles that include "J'Aime Pas Le Rock", "L'Amour Et Le Jeu" by Michel Legrand, "Rendez Vous Au Lavandou" by Henri Salvador, "Nouvell Vague" by Ciarhd Anthony, "I Want To Be Kissed" by Charles Aznavour, "Viens A Juan Les Pins" by Bob Azzam, "Le Cinema" by Claude Nougaro, "Le Tourbillon" by Jeanne Moreau, "Chanson D'Angela" by Anna Karina, "Il Fait Gris Dans Mon Coeur" by Jacqueline Boyer, "Mon Truc En Plumes" by Zizi Jeanmarie, "Coucouch Panier" by Gillian Hills, and "Scrapple From The Apple" by Les Double Six.

✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Rich Medina in years – a killer compilation that brings together older Afro Funk tracks from the 70s with a big amount of cuts from more contemporary years – all with a blend that pushes the spirit of the continent way out into the cosmos! Medina's always been one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground – and you can definitely hear that quality in this set – as Rich effortlessly steps back and forth in space and time, to create a unified sound that bristles with electricity, while still reveling in all the key acoustic elements from the 70s. Titles include "For The People" by Aquil, "Bango Fields" by Kutiman, "For Real (2011 edition Atjazz rmx)" by Atjazz, Olodumare" by Wale Oyejide, "Bushman" by Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, "Stalemate" by Fela & The Afrika 70, "Jungle Beat (Mutaba)" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maestroes, "Soul Makossa" by Original Nairobi Afro Band, "Why Can't We Live Together (Sao Benitez BV dub)" by River Oceaon, and "Na Oil" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80.

✨✧ VariousThings Gonna Get Better – Street Funk & Jazz Grooves 1970 to 1977 ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of street funk and just a bit of jazz here – all served up in the kind of killer funky collection we've always loved from the BGP label! As with some of their other gems, this set goes way beyond the obvious – and digs deep to not just feature rare singles and album tracks, but also include some never-issued recordings from the same period – which makes the set every bit as important for collectors of vintage 45s as it is for newcomers just looking to get a funky taste! There's a hard, deep vibe to most of these tracks – definitely some of the righteous message promised by the cover and title, but also just some plain old funky elements too – served up with lots of sinister guitar lines, heavy drums, and a mix of instrumental riffing and hard soul vocals. Titles include a special instrumental DJ edit of "A Joyful Process" by Funkadelic – plus "Dose Of Soul" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "Do It" by Billy Sha Rae, "Music For The Brothers" by The Solicitors, "What's The Matter With The World" by Dave Hamilton, "Chains" by Blacks & blues, "Things Gonna Get Better" by Clarence Coulter, "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by Pretty Purdie & The Playboys, "One Man's Loss" by Vernon Garrett, "125th Street & 7th Ave" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Mucho Macho" by Macho, "Push On Jesse Jackson" by The Pace Setters, "Shorty The Pimp" by Don Julian, and "Payin Dues" by Ruby Delicious.
