VariousCountry Funk 1969 to 1975 ... LP
Light In The Attic, New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 22.98
A sweet little set that definitely aims to stake out its own little territory – with a groove that lives up surprisingly well to the title! The music here is way funkier than you might expect – and comes from a time when many popular singers were working in studios staffed by cats who were pretty darn cool – and had a great ear for picking up some of the best musical undercurrents from other scenes – including some of the best soul and funk that was really breaking out in the US at the start of the 70s! As a result, many of these tracks have unexpectedly funky rhythms at the bottom – way different than the kind of backings that you might have heard in country soul records from a few years before – and different too than the redneck rock that was becoming more popular with some of the bigger acts on the charts. You're bound to recognize a few bigger names here – as the set's not just country artists – and as usual, the Light In The Attic crew have done a stunning job of putting the whole thing together. Titles include "LA Memphis Tyler Texas" by Dale Hawkins, "Georgia Mountain Dew" by Johnny Adams, "Light Blue" by Bobby Darin, "I Wanta Make Her Love Me" by Jim Ford, "Hawg Frog" by Gray Fox, "Fire & Brimstone" by Link Wray, "Street People" by Bobby Charles, "Bayou Country" by Gritz, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, and "Studspider" by Tony Joe White.

VariousCountry Funk Vol 2 – 1967 to 1974 ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 26.98
A great criss-crossing of modes at the end of the 60s – music that has roots in country, but which comes off with plenty of funk and soul as well – in styles that were burning strong from LA on eastward, all the way across the south at the time! Some of the grooves here might fall into the "swamp rock" mode of the time – while others showcase hip LA artists mixing rootsy elements with tighter studio production – and a few more have genre-crossing country artists trying on some more soulful modes for good measure. The range of work is really great – and quite surprising, too – and the whole thing's got a great look that really illuminates the music within. Titles include "Northeast Texas Women" by Willis Allan Ramsey, "Nobody" by Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, "Collection Box" by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, "Me & Mr Hohner" by Bobby Darin, "Hunger Child Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "California Women" by Hoyt Axton, "Pay Day Give Away" by Bill Wilson, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Cajun Moon" by JJ Cale, "Sumpin Funky Going On" by Donnie Fritts, and "Don't Let Me Down" by Dillard & Clark. LP, Vinyl record album

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 21.98
A pretty cool compilation – especially if you're looking to turn the younger set onto some groovy music! And by "younger set", we mean those 10 years old and younger – as most of these songs are the perfect sort to play for littler kids who've been getting force-fed a diet of mainstream pop, kiddie TV, and American Idol-type music – all tracks that are from surprisingly cool, groovy sources – including some 60s and 70s artists you may well already have in your collection! Most of this music wasn't written specifically for kids, and you'd hardly find most of these under a conventional heading of "children's music" – but if you, like we, respect that most young minds are sharper than most folks give them credit for, then you'll find yourself with plenty of mind-sharpening songs on this set! Titles include "You Can Sing A Rainbow" by Nina Simone, "Occapella" by Van Dyke Parks, "One Was Johnny" by Carole King, "The Town/Me & My Arrow" by Nilsson, "Pinball Number Count" by The Pointer Sisters, "The Mandolin Man & His Secret" by Donovan, "Running In The Green Grass" by Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class, "Diamond Day" by Vashti Bunyan, "Jenny Jenkins" by Jerry Garcia & David Grisman, "Rainbow Connection" by Kermit The Frog, and "Daddy What If" by Bobby Bare.

VariousWheedle's Groove – Seattle's Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 (180 gram vinyl – with 32-zine) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 25.98
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of which never made it past the Pacific Northwest to the national charts. Back in the day, Seattle was a real cross-cultural hotbed – filled with folks who'd picked up and moved out from points east, settling in the Central District, working for Boeing, and reveling in the freedom of the new city to find their own groove. This set does a great job of documenting the flowering of eastern-styled funk in Seattle's growing scene of the late 60s – and features a range of tracks that run from deep funk to hard soul, sock-boogaloo, and even a bit of hard-handed piano jazz! Set list includes "Louie Louie" by The Topics, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Soul Swingers, "This Is Me" by Cookin Bag, "Bold Soul Sister Bold Soul Brother" by Black On White Affair, "Cissy Strut" by Johnny Lewis Trio, "Stop Losing Your Chances" by Cold Bold & Together, "I Just Want To Be" by Robbie Hill, "Wheedle's Groove" by Annakonda, "Hey Jude" by Overton Berry Trio, and "A Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten. LP, Vinyl record album
(Finally back in print! Double 180 gram vinyl – with 32-page zine and comes in a nice, tip-on style sleeve.)
