✨✧ Black Market BrassCheat & Start A Fight (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't let the "brass" in the title throw you off – as these guys are more of an Afro Funk ensemble than any sort of New Orleans-styled group – a combo that's actually only got a single trumpet and trombone in the mix, alongside loads of riffing guitar and heavy percussion! The sound is very much in the best Africa 70 lineage – with all elements coming down right on the groove, in an all-instrumental approach that really lets all the players do the talking with their sounds – including a tremendous tenor saxophonist, whose raspy lines may well be worth the price of the album alone! All tracks are originals – and the all-instrumental approach really gives these guys a freshness, compared to some of the more vocally-based groups of this nature – a sound that's more searing overall, and which brings plenty to bear in the process. Titles include "The Powers", "Gloom", "Pocket Baby", "Moon King", "Midnight Pyre", "Mob Rules", and "Half A Cig". (Global Grooves, Deep Funk) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny Knight & The LakersSooner Or Later (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from Sonny Knight & The Lakers – one of the few cases where an older soul singer can really find a fresh new vibe with a younger group! Knight may well be on his way to hitting the same sort of heights that Lee Fields has reached in recent years – and he definitely works in a Daptone-like groove here with the younger instrumentalists – a sharp combo who give Sonny a perfect blend of deep funk and deeper soul – with more than enough Memphis currents to make things sound a lot more classic than you might expect. Production is right on the money – handled by the same Secret Stash folks who've given us reissues of so much old school soul music – and titles include "Sooner Or Later", "It's Over", "The Cry", "It Had To Change", "Oh Mary", "I Could Never Get Tired", and "Help Me".
