VariousGhetto Discotheque – 13 Tracks Celebrating The Disco Kings & Queens Who Kept The Faith With The Funk ... CD
Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... $17.99
An unfortunate title – but a great set of grooves! The set's pretty unusual in that it brings together disco and club tunes from the late 70s southern scene – most of them recorded for TK records, a few more for Malaco and related labels – all of them bubbling over with that tight funk sound that made the Miami scene so great. The set goes way past the obvious club numbers from the era, and features some lesser-known and hard to find cuts that rock with a harder groove than usual – almost sounding like some of the P&P tunes from up in Harlem at the time. Titles include "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Paul Lewis, "Burning Love Breakdown" by Peter Brown, "I Get Lifted" by KC & The Sunshine Band, "Take A Chance" by Queen Samantha, "Blackwater Gold" by Sunshine Band, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor, "Odyssey (part 2)" by Johnny Harris, "Disco Energy" by Universal Energy, "Inner City Blues" by Paul Lewis, and "Do What You Wanna Do" by T-Connection. 13 tracks in all.

VariousP&P Funk – A Collection Of Classic Funk From The Vaults Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, 1970s. Used ... $6.99
Incredible funk from an almost-unlikely source – the legendary P&P family of record labels, mostly known for their groundbreaking disco work – but also home to some excellent funky tracks in the late 70s! Given that most of the focus on P&P reissues has often been on the label's club tracks, nearly all the tunes on this CD are reissued here for the first time – offering a completely fresh look at the sound of P&P – making the collection a totally essential set, and long overdue! Many of the tracks are instrumental, and have touches that clearly mark them as coming from the hands of Peter Brown or Patrick Adams – nice spacey bits in the keyboards, wickedly snapping rhythms at the bottom, and an overall sense of groove that's always yearning for something new. Titles include "I've Been Working" by Wild Honey, "Hooker (parts 1 & 2)" by Peter Brown, "I'm Gonna Fool" by Ella Hamilton, "Do The Funky Donkey" by Otis Turner, "Hitch Hike One More Time" by King David, "Long Time Ago" by Smokey Brooks, "New York Apple Jack" by Scott Davis & The Movements, "Solid Funk" by Flame & The Sons Of Darkness, and "Determination" by Eddie Owen.

VariousRed Greg – The Sounds Of Gregory Carmichael ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
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.

P&P, Late 70s/2005. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A guided tour of one of the grooviest club labels ever – all at the hands of the legendary Kenny Dope!

✨✧ VariousR&B Hipshakers Vol 3 – Just A Little Bit Of The Jumpin' Bean ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Rare soul from the legendary King Records – hand-picked by Mr Fine Wine, with a special ear for sharp-edged R&B grooves! Most of the work here is from the same early soul stretch as James Brown's initial work for King – and recorded with an equally raw sound overall – heavy rhythms, powerful instrumentation, and amazing vocals that really stretch out with a bold sound for the new generation! A few of the cuts here are by familiar names, and others are lesser-knowns from the rich King catalog – all wrapped together in a big batch of tracks that's filled with the kind of rare gems that Fine Wine's know for – both as a collector and a DJ. Titles include "Old Faithful & True Love" by Earl King, "She's Mine" by Joe Tex, "Mama Needs Your Lovin Baby" by Linda Hopkins, "Cozy's Mambo" by Cozy Cole, "The Jumpin Bean" by The Mystics, "Harem Girl" by Red Prysock, "I Won't Have It" by The King Pins, "One Buffalo" by Jimmy Peterson, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Solid Rock" by Eli Pauling & The Royalton, "Nothing But Good" by Hank Ballard, and "Take Your Fine Frame Home" by Billy Gayles. LP, Vinyl record album
