VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
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.

The Readymade crew turn their talents to a host of tracks from the legendary Brunswick Records – serving up a really joyous mix of Chicago soul that definitely lives up to the best side of their sound!

✨✧ VariousGrass Roots – Danny Krivit: Musical Influences & Inspiration ... CD
Strut (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
70s grooves abound in this fantastic compilation! DJ Danny Krivit – guiding light of New York's Body & Soul night – selects some of his favorite tracks from the 70s, a blinding blend of rare funk, strident soul, and uplifting club tunes that's one of the freshest collections we've heard in ages! The CD version features 2 CDs – both live mixes in which Krivit effortlessly blend tracks together, while still maintaining the full spirit and integral length of the originals. There's a total of 29 tracks on the set – and a few of the tunes get the "Danny Krivit edit" treatment, which means they've got the funky bits extended out even further than before! Titles include "Happy Music (12" mix)" by The Blackbyrds, "Spellbinder" by Gabor Szabo, "Point Zero" by Voyage, "Evil" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Theme From King Kong" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Number One (long version)" by Patrice Rushen, "You're The One (Tom Moulton mix)" by Little Sister, "Wild Safari" by Barrabas, "Going Back To My Roots" by Lamont Dozier, "Turn On The Lights" by Kellee Patterson, "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" by Main Ingredient, "Across 110th Street" by El Barrio, "Yellow Sunshine" by Yellow Sunshine, "Ease Your Mind (UK mix)" by Touchdown, "Lansana's Priestess" by Donald Byrd, "Prophesy" by Margie Joseph, "Land Of Make Believe" by Bill Withers, "I Like What I Like" by Everyday People, and "Delicado" by El Coco.

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Disco Jazz ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ VariousSouthport Weekender Vol 7 – Jazzanova & Mr Scruff ... CD
Susu (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two very hip sets in the Southport Weekender series – both of them much different than the usual club or house-oriented grooves! Jazzanova rule the scene on disc one – blending together a great assortment of grooves from their own Sonar Kollektiv scene, plus a host of similar sounds that really fit nicely together – slightly cosmic, always modern, and usually with a strong undercurrent of soul. Cuts include "Lighthouse" by Dop, "She Walks Alone" by Eva Be, "Still Sequence" by Tokyo Black Star, "Club 69" by Telepaticos, "Ghana Wadada" by Soulphiction, "The Brighter Side" by Version, "Theme From Belle Et Fou (Danny Krivit edit)" by Jazzanova, and "Dance Freak" by South Bronx Community Youth Project. Mr Scruff takes things over on disc two – a wonderful assortment of older soul and funk bits that are totally great – a whopping batch of 21 tracks that includes gems like "That's What You Say" by Gloria Scott, "I Come Running Back" by Sandra Wright, "The Time Is Right For Love" by Bobby Reed, "Blazin" by Stardust, "Stop On By" by Mommie O, "I Bet You Can't Love Me One Time" by Bill Spoon, "Wahoo Wahoo Wahoo" by Wayne Carter, "Live & Let Live" by Jimmy Jones, "Gone" by Mark V Unlimited, and "Mr Blindman" by Donna McGhee.
