✨✧ VariousDoors Of Perception – Dope Funk, Psychedelic Soul, & Acid Jazz From New York City 1970-74 ... CD
Sanctuary, Early 70s. Used ... $12.99
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!

✨✧ VariousInvictus Soul Box Set (3CD set) ... CD
Invictus/Sanctuary (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 3CDS ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mighty mighty dip into the legendary Invictus Records catalog – the Detroit soul powerhouse headed up by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team after they departed from Motown! The Invictus groove is a much heavier one than Motown – a righteous approach to soul that uses plenty of bass, plenty of funk, and lots of deeper production styles – all at a level that was perfect for the growing sophistication in Detroit as the 70s loomed large. Like Motown, the label had a number of key acts that used similar studio backing – an approach that made for very unified feel on most numbers, and a cross-label sound that comes through perfectly in this set – no matter what the artist on the record! 3CD set features a total of 68 numbers in all – all packaged into one nicely-priced box, with loads of rare singles from some of the related labels in the Invictus family. Titles include "Bar B Q Ribs" by Raynel Wynglas, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Cheba" by The 8th Day, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Glass House, "Band Of Gold" by Freda Payne, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Everything Good Is Bad" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "Something New About You" by The Silent Majority, "Your Love Controls Me" by The Jones Girls, "The Music Box" by New Play with Ruth Copeland, "Patches" by Chairmen Of The Board, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "Rip Off" by Laura Lee, "I'm Not My Brothers Keeper" by Flaming Ember, "New Breed Kinda Woman" by Holland Dozier Holland, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Lamont Dozier, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Bump Your Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by Natural High, "Sitting On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, and "Time Gonna Change Everything" by Lucifer.

✨✧ VariousRight On! Vol 2 – More Breakbeats & Grooves From The Atlantic & Warner Vaults ... CD
Warner (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent 2nd volume to this killer set of tracks pulled from the Warner and Atlantic catalogs during the glory days of their soul and funk years! This volume's even more interesting than the first one – and features a huge bunch of cuts that have never been reissued, either on proper or improper reissues (if you know what we mean, wink wink!) As with the first volume, this one focuses on funky material that can or should be sampled – and there's plenty of nice breaks to go around for everyone! Tracks include "Wanaoh" by Black Heat, "Rien Ne Va Plus" by Funk Factory, "Right On" by Clarence Wheeler & the Enforcers, "Giggin Down 103rd" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, "Sandy's Love" by Harold Alexander, "Funky" by Freddie King, "South Street Soul" by Freddie Hubbard, "It's Your Thing" by Shirley Scott, "Magnificent Sanctuary Band" by Donny Hathaway, "Teasin" by King Curtis, "Almendra" by Macondo, "Soul Flow" by Paul Kelly, "Gang Bang" by Oscar Brown Jr, and "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald.
