✨✧ VariousLegacy Of R' N' B Party (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
Funky soul from the 90s – music that's mainstream, but which also draws some nice touches from the underground too – especially the wave of hip hop production that was helping to bring some sharper edges to the grooves in more familiar soul and R&B! The set's a lot hipper than you might think from the Kandi-styled cover, or the "party" on the front – as the tunes are the sort that are really well-remembered from back in the day, and mostly not the stuff of crossover hits. 3CD set features 34 tracks in all – and titles include "Butta Love (you got the love rmx)" by Next with Naughty By Nature, "Come On Out" by Dede Lopez, "Unpretty (don't look any further rmx w/rap)" by TLC, "Head Over Heels" by Allure with Nas, "Keep It Real" by Jon B & Coko with Jay-Z, "Still In Love" by Nivea, "U Don't Have To Call" by Usher, "Weekend (radio mix)" by Kenny Lattimore, "I See You" by Best Man, "All Eyez On Me (urban mix)" by Monica, "Too Close (Phatboy club mix)" by Next, "Thank God It's Friday" by R Kelly, "1 Thing" by Amerie, "Joyride" by Men Of Vizion with Tasha Scott, "Put Me Down" by Donell Jones, "Let's Get Married (ReMarquable rmx)" by Jagged Edge with Run, "Daydreamin Part 2 (ext version)" by Tatyana Ali with Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, "Tell Me (6 Karat hip hop mix)" by Groove Theory with Brand Nubian, "After Party" by Koffee Brown, and "No More (Cuban Linx 2000 rmx)" by Ruff Endz feat Ghostface Killah & Raekwon.

✨✧ VariousDanny Krivit Introduces P&P Records – Killer Underground Funk, Soul, Rap & Disco Breaks From New York's Legendary P&P Records ... CD
P&P/Suss'd (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the greatest look at the P&P family of labels we've heard so far – but that's really no surprise, given that the man at the helm of the project is legendary DJ and club collector Danny Krivit! Krivit's look at the label goes deeper than any we've heard before – and really goes out of its way to bring together the full range of P&P related material from the 70s and early 80s – not just the better-known club tracks, but also some excellent soul and funky numbers too – really fleshing out our understanding of the mighty talents of Peter Brown and Patrick Adams! The work here was originally spread over a large number of indie labels – including a few that weren't P&P related, but simply licensed their productions – and Krivit's really done his homework in pulling the tracks together, as have the folks at Suss'd, who manage to come up with track-by-track notes that further illuminate the music. Styles run from uptempo club to funky soul – and most numbers here are presented in their full original 12" mixes! 2CD set features 27 tracks in all – including "I Just Want To Spend My Life With You" by Caress, "Ain't It Time" by Queen Yahna, "Everything Man" by Daybreak, "Rock Spank Freak" by High Voltage, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Rainbow Brown, "Got To Get Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Johnson Jumping" by Johnson Products, "Mr Blindman" by Donna McGhee, "The Groove I'm In" by Florence Miller, "Love Fantasy" by Reason To Live, "Guardian Angel Is Watching" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, "Pound For Pound" by Le'o Roy, "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is A Woman" by Margie Lomax, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Let's Just Stay Away" by Louise Murray, "Superstition" by Dennis Mobley & Fresh Taste, "Funk Rap" by Ikim & Bacardi, "Moan For Love" by Tony Gray & Beverly Lee, and "Stereo Funk" by Darrow & Stereo.

✨✧ VariousDisco Juice – The Funky Disco Sound Of Harlem's P&P Records ... CD
Counterpoint (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky disco sound is right – as P&P were one of the greatest club labels of the late 70s! The label was run by Peter Brown and Patrick Adams – both inventive producers who'd made their mark at other labels over the years, and who had an insane talent for cooking up unusual ways to put over a groove. They mixed together soul, funk, disco, and occasional touches of electronics to create a wild groove that was always fresh, and which pushed way past the simple club grooves of some of the contemporaries. Their work at P&P (and related imprints) was perhaps too groundbreaking to hit as big on the charts as other larger disco acts – but from the get-go, they'd always had a strong underground following, and are claimed as an enormous influence on both house music and modern dance alike. Work on the label's been cropping up on reissue singles for a number of years, but this is the first time anyone's done a proper job of putting together work from P&P – and given that the set's of British origin, you can bet that the quality and packaging are super-high, not to mention the selection! There's a total of 13 cuts in all – including "Flying High" and "Patty Duke" by Cloud One, "Johnson Jumpin" by Johnson Products, "Dance Freak" by Chain Reaction, "African Rock" by Licky, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson, "NY Applejack" by Scott Davis, "Got To Have Your Love" by Clyde Alexander, and "Get Down Boy" by Paper Doll.
