✨✧ VariousDoors Of Perception – Dope Funk, Psychedelic Soul, & Acid Jazz From New York City 1970-74 ... CD
Sanctuary, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent dip into the wild catalog of Perception Records! The label was home to some of the most compelling soul and funk of the early 70s – and it operated in a boundary-less territory that mixed up fuzzy guitars with heavy beats with soaring sax and sweet harmony vocals. Some of the artists who recorded for the label are best known for their work there – like Black Ivory or Wanda Robinson – and others made rare sessions for Perception – like Dizzy Gillespie and Shirley Horn – that really stand out from the rest of their work! This 20 track set offers a perfect sampling of the work on the label – and it includes a wild variety of tracks like "Alive" by Larry Young, "Get Some Of This" by Madhouse, "I Can't Get No Higher" by The 8 Minutes, "Consequences Of A Drug Addict Role" by Shirley Horn, "Too Sad To Tell" by Debbie Taylor, "Life Love & Peace" by The Exciters, "Alligator" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Rock Steady" by Julius Brockington, "Naturally Good" by Bartel, "Stop Me" by Benny Johnson, and the main theme to "Brother On The Run" by Johnny Pate & Adam Wade!

✨✧ VariousBeginners Guide To Jazz Funk (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Nascente (UK), 1970s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
They might well call this a Beginners Guide To Blue Note Jazz Funk – given that most of the tracks here are from the hip 70s run at Blue Note Records! The vibe is wonderful – funky and soulful, but definitely with jazz at the forefront – as older soloists were finding new ways to reach their audiences through electric grooves – and younger players were making a huge name for themselves through a very inventive approach to their work! The 3CD set is a hell of a deal for the money – with 33 tracks that include loads of Blue Note gems, plus some 70s Capitol funk and soul tracks too – titles that include "As" by Gene Harris, "Dominoes" by Donald Byrd, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, "Down The Way" by John Lee & Gerry Brown, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Sassy Soul Strut" by Lou Donaldson, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Tidal Wave" by Ronnie Laws, "London Town" by Light Of The World, "Windy C" by 100% Pure Poison, "Daisy Mae" by Raul De Souza, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Prance On" by Eddie Henderson, "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, "Abdullah & Abraham" by Chico Hamilton, "Cheshire Cat" by Ronnie Foster, "Funky Sneakers" by Willie Bobo, "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "People Make The World Go Round" by Bobby Hutcherson, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera.

✨✧ VariousBlue 70s – Blue Note Got Soul ... CD
Blue Note, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blue Note continues their strong tradition of well-packaged samplers from the old days – this time dipping into the 1970s years of the catalog, and copping a few extra tracks from the related Capitol/EMI labels. A few cuts here have been issued on other sets over the years – but at this price, the set's still a great package of 11 soulful funky tracks, with titles that include "Friends & Strangers" by Ronnie Laws, "Can't Hide Love" by Carmen McRae, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Spinning Wheel" by Lonnie Smith, "Feel Like Makin Love" by Marlena Shaw, "Acuphuncture" by Eddie Henderson, "Uno Esta" by Bobbi Humphrey, "VO" by Chico Hamilton, "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, and "Down Here On The Ground" by Grant Green.

Blue Note (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first volume in this totally excellent series which digs out rare soul and fusion cuts from the Capitol/EMI catalog from the 70s. There's loads of swirling jazzy tracks, like "Music is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz and "Peace of Mind" by Rance Allen (both of which have stellar production by Larry Mizell), "Losalamitos Latinfunklovesong" by Gene Harris, "About Love" by Ben Sidran, "Inside You" by Eddie Henderson, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera. There's also a bunch of great modern soul tracks, like "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "Annie Mae" by Natalie Cole, "While I'm Alone" by Maze, "Dindi" by Janet Lawson, and the rare "She's My Summer Breeze" by the Reflections, which is worth the price of the CD alone!
