Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A legendary collection of rare Jamaican grooves – the first-ever reggae compilation from Soul Jazz Records – and a mighty dip into the huge catalog of Studio One!

Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
A totally sweet set of grooves from the African scene of the 70s – and one that's a fair bit different than most of the other collections we've got on our racks! The styles here are a bit more offbeat, and a bit less familiar – not straight Afro Funk, but also not some of the popular ... (Global Grooves, Funky Compilations) read more CD

VariousAfro Funk Explosion – Motherload From The Motherland ... CD
Explosive, 1970s. Used ... $8.99
A hodgepodge of older Afro Funk tracks – but a nice one! Unlike other comps of this sort, which are usually chock full of notes, this one has little in the way of information – but we can certainly give it the "thumbs up" for music, because it's got some excellent funky ...

Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records!

✨✧ VariousAll Platinum Funk ... CD
Charly (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
Nice compilation of the rare funky tracks that were put out by the All Platinum/Stang/A1/Turbo labels in the mid 70's, but which got lost in the tracks between the big hits. There's some nice stuff on here from Eddie Fisher, The Rimshots, BBP, and Mother Freedom Band. And there's also some hits, ... read more CD

A tight collection of uptempo funk and disco-driven soul tunes – with a selection that goes way past the usual dancefloor favorites! We're not sure how to read the title (which seems to have some sort of "inside take" on black culture in America) so we'll write that off to the ... read more CD

Killer soul from the 60s – a wonderfully rich array of hard soul grooves – all with a superb pedigree! The "At" here is short for "Atlantic" – as in Atlantic Records, the source of all the very groovy cuts on this set – as well as some from the early ... (Soul, Funky Compilations) read more CD

Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
Lots of beats and breaks – and the groove is a lot less mellow than you'd guess from the title! Tracks are pulled from some of the coolest indie labels of the 70s – Brunswick, HDH, and Salsoul – and the focus is on tracks that have lots of heavy drums and sharp changes – of ... read more CD

Sonorama (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Big deal, indeed – as this excellent set looks at a really under-tapped source of sound library funk from the 70s – a small British company who was turning out glorious grooves in the same classic years as KPM or DeWolfe!

Blue Note, 1991. Used ... $9.99
