VariousGhetto Discotheque – 13 Tracks Celebrating The Disco Kings & Queens Who Kept The Faith With The Funk ... CD
Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ VariousDisco Juice – The Funky Disco Sound Of Harlem's P&P Records ... CD
Counterpoint (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... 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.

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.

✨✧ VariousPure Fire! – A Gilles Peterson Impulse Collection ... CD
Impulse, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
There's few people we'd trust more with our ears than Gilles Peterson – and once again, the man shows that our trust in him wasn't misplaced! This time round, Gilles takes us on a heady trip through the hippest side of the Impulse Records label – the imprint that's quite well known for its groundbreaking jazz of the 60s and 70s, but which is presented here with a special flair that's really amazing! As usual, Peterson goes way past the obvious hits and classics, and digs even deeper into the many great albums issued by Impulse – all to find special tunes and wonderful tracks that might have slipped past us otherwise – put together with even greater care to assure a even-keeled mood throughout the entire set. Gilles has a way of re-igniting the fire that first made these records great – by setting the tunes up in an order, and with a pacing, that allows each number to resonate even more strongly alongside its partners in the tracklist. Only 10 tracks in all – but all of them are great – and titles include "First Gymnopedie" by Yusef Lateef, "The Blessing Song" by Michael White, "Enchanted Lady" by Milt Jackson & Ray Brown, "Alamode" by Art Blakey, "Lonesome Lover" by Max Roach, "See You Later" by Dave MacKay & Vicki Hamilton, "Patterns" by Oliver Nelson, "Wise One" by John Coltrane, and "Three Flowers" by McCoy Tyner.
