VariousBeats & Breaks – Just A Mellow Groove ... CD
Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
Lots of beats and breaks – and the groove is a lot less mellow than you'd guess from the title! Tracks are pulled from some of the coolest indie labels of the 70s – Brunswick, HDH, and Salsoul – and the focus is on tracks that have lots of heavy drums and sharp changes – of the sort that were sampled heavily back in the day, but which also make for a nice batch of upbeat soul numbers too! Yet the collection is way more than just a sample-based collection of soul – as most of these numbers are pretty unusual, and not the kind of soul tracks that show up often on other compilations – and they link together surprisingly well, given the different sources from Chicago, Detroit, and New York. Titles include "Girl I Need You" by The Artistics, "I'm Bugging Your Phone" by The Smith Connection, "Seeing You Through The Eyes Of A Blindman" by Satisfaction Unlimited, "Lovin You Is Killin Me" by Moment Of Truth, "Where Will It End (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Love Committee, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Breakaway" by First Choice, "Taster Of The Honey" by The Jones Girls, and "You Don't Have To Go (edit)" by The Chi-Lites.

VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... CD
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

VariousLe Freak – Music Inspired By Chic – Compiled By Joey Negro ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Sealed ... $19.99
The music of Nile Rodgers and Chic has had plenty of impact over the years – and it had an especially strong power at the time of its release – with a whole host of late 70s and early 80s soul acts taking on a Chic-styled groove, and with amazing results! Nobody knows grooves of that vintage than Joey Negro – and for this sweet little set, he brings together a whole host of Chic-styled cuts from back in the day – tight, lean grooves that really help find a dancefloor path past mainstream disco – complete with all the sort of wicked basslines and sharp guitar parts you might expect! The collection's full of surprises – maybe one of the nicest that Joey's given us in years – and titles include "Together" by Odyssey, "Easy Money" by She, "Let's Do It Again" by Nightlife Unlimited, "Not About That" by Van Jones, "Heartache No 9 (special rmx version)" by Delegation, "Feel The Beat" by Chad with GG Gibson, "Good Times" by Charanga 76, "I'm In Love (Joey Negro edit)" by Cela, "Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes (part 2)" by Ann Margret, and "Don't Sneak On Me" by Michael Zager.

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 24.99
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 third volume in the Super Funk series seems to dig even deeper than the first two – and it also includes few incredible little nuggets that were never officially released in any format – which makes the whole thing essential, even if you've got a mountain of rare 45s back at your crib!

✨✧ VariousRed Greg – The Sounds Of Gregory Carmichael ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible grooves from the third corner of the P&P triangle – the legendary Greg Carmichael, a man who was as important to the sound of the New York underground as Patrick Adams and Peter Brown! Carmichael worked heavily with Adams back in the day, and he's got a way with a groove that's right up there with the best of P&P – spacey sometimes, funky at other moments – always with a cutting-edge approach to club that's way different than mainstream disco of the 70s! This 2CD set is the first real retrospective of Greg's contributions to the scene – and although some of the names here are familiar from other projects, the whole thing sounds incredible as a unified, extended package. Titles include "Space Disco", "Freak With Me", and "Dance & Shake Your Tambourine" by Universal Robot Band; "Better Days", "Unity Sing It Shout It", and "Soul Disco" by Tony Aiken & Future 2000; "Finders Keepers" by Shiek, "Lady Bug" by Bumblebee Unlimited, "Making Love" by Sammy Gordon & The Hip-Huggers, "We Don't Allow" by The Invitations, "I Can't Stop Dancin" by Conversion, "I'm Caught Up" by Inner Life, and "Bust That Nut (downtown mix)" by Poopee & The NY Squirrels.

✨✧ VariousMaster Of The Masterpiece – The Very Best Of Patrick Adams ... CD
P&P, 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The first collection ever to track the genius of Patrick Adams, the legendary producer who had a huge influence on 70s soul – starting with group harmony in the early part of the decade, and running through classic club in the latter half! These days, Adams is best-remembered as one half of the legendary P&P Records team (Peter Brown was the other half) – but this set starts before his P&P years, and begins with a range of great singles from the early 70s that Adams' warm touch on harmony vocals – then moves into a batch of even hipper uptempo disco tracks! The package pulls together work from a wide number of labels, all to showcase Adams' even wider range of talents – and it's great to have all this work together in one collection! 2CD version features 18 tracks in all – titles that include "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "Surrender" by Black Ivory, "I Just Want To Spend My Life With You" by Pete Warner, "You Believed In Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Executive Suite, "Kings & Queens" by Patrick Adams Institute, "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Donna McGhee, "My Baby's Got ESP" by 4 Below Zero, "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "In The Bush" by Musique, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Atmosphere Strut (1979 rmx)" by Cloud One, "Lady Bug" by Bumblee Unlimited, "Flying High" by Cloud One, "Everybody Wants My Body (rmx)" by Sandra Herring, and "Come & Make Me Feel Good" by Shades Of Love with Katherine Joyce.
