✨✧ VariousDelta Swamp Rock – Sounds From The South At The Crossroads Of Rock, Country, & Soul – Part 1 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soul Jazz takes an open-eyed and open-minded look at swampy, funky, freewheeling southern rock – southern-by-nature or southern-by-inspiration grooves from the end of the 60s and well into the 70s! What we love most about the set, besides that it features one great song after another, is the Soul Jazz perspective. They don't simply put together Delta Swamp Rock from a purist's standpoint regionally, or as a sound – it's loosely-defined, which you could complain about if you want, but we love all of this stuff so it works for us! There's early phase southern rock, blue-eyed soul, soulful country and homey, swaggering pop. Volume 1 of the vinyl has 13 tracks on 2LPs: "The Seasons" by Lynryd Skynryd, "Smokies" by Barefoot Jerry", "Papa, Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You" by Bobbie Gentrie, "Stone Fox Chase" by Area Code 615, "Be What You Want To" by Link Wray", "I'll Be Long Gone" by Boz Scaggs, "God Rest His Soul" by Duane And Gregg Allman and more.

VariousAmericana Rock Your Soul Vol 2 – More Blue Eyed Soul & AOR Sounds From The Land Of The Free ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Really soulful sounds from a set of unlikely sources – American grooves from the late 70s that weren't necessarily recorded as soul records – but which really fit in well with the best work of the time! The music here is from a host of obscure indie records – some funk, some jazz, some even rock – but always with a warmly soulful groove that's mighty darn nice – and which sparkles along with some of the best work of the time from much bigger names! If we were to go for a comparison, we might reach for the Fantasy Records/Bay Area scene of the time – especially its way of blending together different styles with a warmer mode and a jazzy finish – something that all the artists here really share. The set's a wonderful discovery – even nicer than the first volume – and we'd honestly never heard most of these cuts before. Titles include "Make Me Believe" by Archie James Cavanaugh, "Night Time Stars" by Joseph Nicoletti, "Hollywood" by Ray Camacho Band, "Hot Ice" by TR's Hot Ice, "Vaya Mulata" by Luc Cousineau, "There's A New Group In Town" by Breakaway, "A Million Stars" by Macky Feary Band, "Without You" by Steve Eaton, and "Here Is Where Your Love Belongs" by Jaye P Morgan.

VariousBest Of Invictus/Hotwax Vol 2 – Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Freaky fuzzy soul from the mighty Invictus/Hot Wax records – home to early work by Parliament and a whole host of other great Detroit soul groups too! The grooves here really go past the ordinary – and show the label's love of a heavy bassline or fuzz-drenched guitar – elements borrowed from other parts of the Motor City scene, then reworked into some headier grooves for the 70s by the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Lots of the tunes share the same sort of heavy sound and righteous energy you'd find in late Motown work by Norman Whitfield – and titles include "Gimme Shelter" by Ruth Copeland, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic" by The Politicians, "I Call My Baby Pussycat" by Parliament, "You've Been My Rock" by Warlock, "Everybody's Tippin" by Danny Woods, "Somebody's Been Sleeping" by 100 Proof, and "I Surrendered" by Glass House.

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – The Big Mack Label ... CD
Numero, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
An incredible look at an obscure Detroit soul label – a tiny little company, but home to some really great funk and soul! The Big Mack label ran somewhat sporadically through the 60s and into the early 70s – but during that time, it managed to cut some incredible tunes with a really unique feel – work that had a rougher edge than most of the Detroit soul on the bigger labels and indies – often with an earthy quality that's miles and miles from Motown! Label owner Ed McCoy had a great ear for male singers, instrumental combos, and vocal groups – but as the 60s rolled on, he also picked up a few hip female acts as well – and throughout the whole stretch, he had a way of producing a tune that we can only describe best as slightly messed up – a sound that's often slightly tripped up, oddly spacious, and which makes the elements of the music fall into each other with a crashingly intense kind of sound! Far from being a mess, this approach only seems to cook things up more – giving an edge to tracks that might have sounded more lackluster with conventional production – and further electrifying these obscure utterings from the Detroit underground. As with other Numero collections, the work here is wonderfully worth discovering – and presented with full notes, photos, and a history of the label. CD features 19 tracks that include "Bui Bui" by L Hollis & The Mackadoos, "Get It Right" by Soul President, "Crooked Woman" by Edd Henry, "Fever" by Essence, "If You Feel It" by Ms Tyree Sugar Jones, "The Feeling Is Mutual" by Manhattens, "I See Her Pretty Face" by The Grand Prix's, "Let's Give Our Love A Try" by Mae Young, "I'll Be On My Way" by Bob & Fred, "Mini Skirt" by The Sleepwalkers, "Monkey Time Shine" by L Hollis & The Mackadoos, "The Man Puts Sugar In My Soul" by Mae Young, "You Drive Me Crazy" by The Grand Prix's, "Got To Have It" by Soul President, and "Your Replacement Is Here" by Edd Henry.

VariousUndisputed Soul – Mixed By DJ Spinna ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $23.99
DJ Spinna takes on the sound of Motown, with wonderful results – and a groove that's quite different than any other project we've heard from him! If you only know Spinna as a talent in a contemporary mode, you'll really be surprised at his love and understanding of classic Motown – as he mixes together 22 vintage tracks from the legendary soul label, all in a non-stop groove that features some great Spinna twists and turns as the music comes together! There's a few tracks that are all new Spinna edits of classics, and others have little touches here and there as they move on – a thoughtful way of mixing that really makes all the cuts resonate strongly together. Titles include "Date With The Rain (DJ Spinna refreak)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Brothers Gonna Work It Out (DJ Spinna refreak)" by Willie Hutch, "Bernadette" by Four Tops, "Malinda" by Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers, "Do It Baby" by The Miracles, "The Love You Save" by Jackson 5, "Love's Gone Bad" by Chris Clark, "I'm A Sucker For Your Love" by Teena Marie, "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game" by Barbara McNair, and "Honey Chile" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas.

✨✧ VariousInvictus Greatest Hits/Hot Wax Greatest Hits (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Hot Wax/Demon (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A greatest hits two-fer – made even greater with the addition of 27 bonus tracks! First up is Invictus' Greatest Hits – heavy soul from the house of Holland-Dozier-Holland – some of the best bits from their Invictus powerhouse label of the early 70s – definitely a scene-setting imprint at the time! Invictus had some of the deepest grooves ever recorded by the trio – heavy, rumbling bottom sounds – soaring vocal passages – and production that took the Motown lessons of the late 60s to a whole new level. The package is overflowing with gems – and titles include "Crumbs Off The Table" by The Glass House, "Band Of Gold" and "Bring The Boys Home" by Freda Payne, "Give Me Just A Little More Time" and "Everything's Tuesday" by The Chairmen Of The Board, "You've Got To Crawl" and "She's Not Just Another Woman" by The 8th Day, and "I Had It All" by The Barrino Brothers. Hot Wax Greatest Hits is a great collection of some of the best numbers from the Hot Wax label of the early 70s – second generation Detroit soul that really set the standard for the 70s! The tunes here were massive back in the day – blasting out of juke boxes, car radios, and a fair bit of home stereos too – all for good reason, given the care and balance the Holland-Dozier-Holland team brought to their work in the studio, and their ears for selecting singers to handle the work. Titles include "Want Ads" and "Stick Up" by Honey Cone, "Somebody's Been Sleepin" and "Too Many Cooks" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "Westbound #9" and "Mind Body & Soul" by Flaming Ember, "Woman's Love Rights" by Laura Lee "Women's Love Rights", and "Frightened Girl" by Silent Majority. 2CD set also features 27 bonus tracks that include "Somebody's Gonna Hurt You" by Lee Charles, "Colors Of My Love" by The Silent Majority, "Love Machine" by The Politicians, "Touch Me" by Eloise Laws, "Hey There Lonely Girl" by Ty Hunter, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "I Need It Just As Bad As You" by Laura Lee, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Guess I'm Gonna Cry" by New York Port Authority, "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, and "You Too Me From A World Outside" by Lee Charles.

✨✧ VariousMotown Remixed ... CD
Motown (UK), 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We gotta admit, we kinda like this one! We were a bit suspicious at first – as the genius of Motown hardly needs any messing with – and we had fears that a remix project might just sound silly, goofy, and filled with easy tricks and gimmicks. But the choice of remixers on the set is really great – and includes enough of a range of talents to keep things interesting, but also a small enough group to unify the sound of the album, and still really respect the original vibe of the tunes. Most of the work here is very subtle – and just extends the best core elements, and expands on a few of the strongest musical references – in a way that's really different than the over-done approach of the Verve Remixed project. Titles include "I Want You Back (Z-Trip rmx)" by Jackson 5, "Quiet Storm (Groove Boutique rmx)" by Smokey Robinson, "Let's Get It On (Producers MPG groove mix)" by Marvin Gaye, "Papa Was A Rollin Stone (DJ Jazzy Jeff & Pete Kuzma solefull rmx)" by The Temptations, "War (King Britt rmx)" by Edwin Starr, "Keep On Truckin (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Smiling Faces Sometimes (Futureshock Main Ingredient mix)" by Undisputed Truth, "My World Is Empty Without You (Tranzition rmx)" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, and "I Just Want To Celebrate (Mocean Worker rmx)" by Rare Earth.

Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tight, well-constructed mix of unusual sounds from the mighty Salsoul Records – put together by DJ Daniel Wang with a focus both on the rich orchestrations of the grooves, and some of the label's more cosmic funk moments! The tracks include familiar Salsoul classics nicely juxtaposed with overlooked nuggets – all with a non-stop approach that really shows that Wang knows right where to break and pick up the best elements of each tune. Titles include "Primitive Man" by Silvetti, "Time Out For Love" by Soccer, "The Beat Goes On & On" by Ripple, "Into The Milky Way" by Jimmy Briscoe & The Beavers, "Soul Sister" by Ronnie Jones, "Mestizo" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "New York Is My Kind Of Town" by Metropolis, "Cantina Band" by Gaz, "You're Just The Right Size (Erasmo Rivera rmx)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "Dreamin" by Loleatta Holloway.

A wonderful collection of one of our favorite genres – porno funk! The tasty set brings together funky grooves and rare trailers, radio ads, and spoken bits from the classic years of home grown porno – merging fresh and funky soundtrack music with some very cool ads for the films of the time – all done in a style that's nicely tongue in cheek, but which also offers a really stunning look at the depth of the genre back in the 70s! Most of the spoken bits have great music at the start or behind the vocals – and there's also about a dozen instrumental-only tracks on the set. An amazing 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Some Of My Best Friends Are", "Mr Scarface", "That Man Bolt", "Bucktown End Theme", "Chinese Connection", "24 Hour Lover", "Hijack", "Switchblade Sister – Hold It Whitey", "Ready Willing & Able", "Trip With The Teacher", and "Centerfold Girls".

✨✧ VariousSearching For Soul – Rare & Classic Soul, Funk & Jazz from Michigan 1968 to 1980 ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Searching for soul? You just hit the jackpot in this killer set that's filled with Michigan-recorded gems that go way beyond the shadows of Motown! The sound here is madly tripped out throughout – a blend of funky 45 rhythms with more interesting influences from the spreading sprawl of the Michigan soul underground of the 60s and 70s – groups who recorded not just in Detroit, but also other cities that were taking the motor city groove and turning it on in whole new ways. Overall, there's an approach here that reminds us of Westbound Funk at its best – a blend of psychedelic influences, jazz phrasing, and deeper soul that echo nicely together in most of the collection's tracks. Filled with great tunes we'd never heard before – a total of 14 tracks that include "Take Time Out" by Wendell Harrison, "Why She Had To Go" by Burning Desire, "Do It Right" by El Riot, "Let's Get Down" by The Black Aces Of Soul & The Eyes Of Ebony, "Be Mine Tonight" by Lloyd W Williams, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "Searching For Soul (part 1)" by Jake Wade & The Soul Searchers, "I Can Deal With That" by Dee Edwards, "Alcohol (part 1)" by Robert Jay, "Give & Take" by Tommy McGhee, "I Stayed Away Too Long" by Manual B Holcolm, and "Rap It Together" by The Detroit Sex Machines.

✨✧ VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 4 (with download) ... LP
Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive batch of Latin soul from the late 60s – all pulled from the deeper corners of the New York underground – from a range of fresh, young musicians who go way beyond the bigger names on Fania and Tico! The tunes here really show the sharpest changes in Latin music at the time – the strong embrace of soul and jazz sounds from other stretches of the uptown scene – and the move to smaller, tighter groups after years of bigger bands – which makes for the kind of lively instrumental interplay you're more likely to hear from a funk combo! Some numbers here have swinging soulful vocals, others are really cooking on the instrumental tip – and titles include "The Aztec Theme" by The Aztecs, "Having Fun" by Pepe Fernandez, "Ain't That Right" by Arthur Sterling, "Mi Guajira" by Frankie Nieves, "El Gallo" by Al Gonzalez, "Damelo Baby" by The Aztecs, "C-Rations & Cornbread" by Pepe Fernandez, and "Do The Boogaloo" by New York All Stars & Orquesta Novel.
