VariousJazz Club – Disco Jazz ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), Late 70s. Used ... $6.99
Almost more disco than jazz – but that's OK with us, because the grooves are all pretty darn groovy! But this set's hardly the familiar disco you might expect – because like other entries in the Jazz Club series, the tracks are a well-collected batch of unusual sounds from the farther reaches of the Universal Music empire – including a fair bit of late 70s European tunes by older cats who found new ways to groove during the disco generation! Most numbers are instrumentals, and most orchestrations are pretty large – often in a funky jazz mode, mixed with the disco rhythms, which gives the collection the feel of some groovy cop/crime soundtrack work from the 70s. Titles include "Sky's The Limit" by Rhythm Heritage, "Come On & Shine" by Patrick Williams, "Land Of Make Believe" by Peter Thomas, "Long Island Sound" by Werner Baumgart, "Love Is Still Blue" by Paul Mauriat, "Summertime" by Brass Fever, "Falling Star" by James Last, "Moondancer" by Meco, "Salsoul Motion" by Kai Warner, "Caravan" by Rhythm Heritage, "Keep On Dancing" by Bert Kaempfert, "Brazilian Love Song" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, and "House Of The Rising Sun" by Peter Thomas.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 3 – Still Rarer & Funkier Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A killer batch of rare funky tunes – pulled from a host of tiny labels, and put together with a quality level that would blow away a crate full of of funky 45s! This 3rd volume in the Super Funk series seems to dig even deeper than the first 2 – and it also includes few incredible little nuggets that were never officially released in any format! Includes "The Tramp (From Funky Broadway)" by The Showmen Inc, "Put It In" by Johnny King And The Fatback Band, "Cissy Popcorn" and "Funky Chicken" by Preston Love, "Soul Livin" by Everyday People Unlimited, "Brother Brown" by Camille Bob, "At The Soul In" by Count Yates And The Rhythm Crusaders, "Cat Scream" by Li'l Buck, "Bending Soul" by the Soul Blenders", "Ain't It A Groove" by Chico & Buddy, "Soul Brothers Testify" by Soul Senders, "Fat Man" by TKOs, "Sweet Potato Gravy" by Maurice Simon And The Pie Men, and lots more! 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Movie Themes Go Disco! ... CD
Verve (Germany), Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Clubby takes on classic themes – mostly famous film numbers from the 70s, with a few other great cuts mixed in for good measure! The package is definitely heavy on the disco promised in the title – and features some killer cuts that really take off from the original tunes – stretching out the melody over longer readings that rely on heavy rhythms, sweet strings, and lots of other great elements to forge the groove! Meco are the clear stars of the package – as they virtually invented the genre – and the set features their versions of "Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band", "The Empire Strikes Back Medley", "Love Theme From The Black Hole", "Love Theme From Star Trek", and "Theme From Close Encounters". But the set also features "Theme From King Kong" and "Theme From Superman" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Moonshine" by Philharmonic 2000, "Three Days Of The Condor" and "Lipstick" by Rhythm Heritage, "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Galactic Light Orchestra, "Bolero" by Lalo Schifrin, and "Battlestar Galactica Medley" by Giorgio Moroder.

✨✧ VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 7 – Give Me Your Love (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Motor/Universal (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A searing entry into the Mojo Club series – and one that really shows the way the compilations have evolved over the years! The album's heavier on soul music than ever before – but also features some tremendous jazz, Brazilian, and European gems as well – a wonderful set list that really keeps things fresh! Titles include "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love, "Wouri" by Manu Dibango, "Maracaibo" by Michel Legrand, "Take Us Down To The River" by Michael Naura, "Sambao" by Walter Wanderley, "Roots" by Willie Bobo, "Soul Soul Soul" by Wild Magnolias, "Strange Games & Things" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Praise The Lord" by Mary Lou Williams, "In Memory Of" by Randy Weston, "Nao Bate O Coracao" by Astrud Gilberto, "Mundo Deserto" by Elis Regina, and the great "El Soul Condor" by Certain Lions & Tigers (a very rare German release from 1970!) Plus, the LP version includes 4 bonus cuts by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Ekseption, Os Reis Du Batuque, and Fats Sadi – all very nice rarebits! LP, Vinyl record album
