✨✧ Various7 X 7 = Funk – The Funky Side Of P&P Records (7 X 7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
P&P/Traffic, 1970s. New Copy 7x7" ... On August 19, 2016
A great little set – one that's filled with rare funky tracks from the P&P Records empire of the 70s – most of which are a lot more obscure than their disco classics! The package is amazing – a heavy box that contains seven 7" singles – all original replicas of mighty rare P&P projects – presented with their original a and b-sides completely intact! As with 12" singles on P&P, the music is always plenty funky, but often in really weird ways – odd instrumentation and production techniques that mark the music as different from most of its contemporaries – really visionary work from the team of Peter Brown and Patrick Adams. We hadn't heard a lot of these cuts before, so the box set is totally essential to us – and singles include "Mini Skirt" and "Greatest Debt To My Mother" by Henry Brooks, "What It Looks Like" and "Black Ice" by Sons Of Darkness, "Do The Funky Donkey" and "Who's Gonna" by Otis Turner & The Mighty Kingpins, "I'm Gonna Fool You (voc, inst)" by Ella Hamilton, "Determination" and "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Owen, "Funky Thing (parts 1 & 2)" by Sons Of Darkness, and "I've Been Working" and "Only September" by Wild Honey.

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