✨✧ 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.

✨✧ VariousNu Yorica ! – Culture Clash In New York City 1970-1977 – Part 1 (20th anniversary edition – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and vinyl part 1 features nine tracks that include "Las Negritas De Carnaval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Babalonia" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and more.

✨✧ 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.
