Lucky BrownLucky Brown's Space Dream ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2011. New Copy ... $12.99
Spacey raw funk from Lucky Brown – perfectly raw and gritty instrumental jams and vocal numbers and some jazz funk heaviness from the man behind The Funk Revolution, Crawdad Farmers and more – one of the more furiously creative figures in the international funk scene! This compilation pulls together hard-to-find/out of print funky 45 tracks recorded with the above named combos, never-before-released funk bombs, and unheard longer versions – the latter of which show a range and a depth only hinted out on funk 45s! it's really great to have all this stuff together as one impeccable set. Includes "Still Listening", "Jesse's Party", "Redbeard", "Don't Go Away",, "Potato Cakes" (Pts 1 & 2), "Deal With It", "She's A Hard Workin' Woman", "Scatterbrain", "Izzy Come, Izzy Go", "Space Dream" and more.

Eminent StarsSittin' In With The Eminent Stars ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
Stardom seems eminent with this fierce funky combo – a quintet of players with a deep love of southern sounds from the 60s – particularly the best grooves coming out of Memphis or New Orleans! The mix of instrumentation features tight trumpet, tenor, and guitar – and although the group's core jamming is the main appeal of the record, the set also features guest vocals on a number of tracks – different soul-styled vocalists who collaborate with the group, and create a nice sense of spontaneity and variety throughout. Titles include "The Club", "Hearts Are Jumping", "Ben's Dungeon", "Dead Cat", "Tune In", and "Smokey One". CD

✨✧ Reverend Cleatus & The Soul SavioursSoul Saviour Stew (with download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's no reverend here – despite the name of the group – but the set is one smokingly righteous set of funky instrumentals – more than enough to send us to the heavens with its stunning sense of spirit! The group's a lean one, with an especially strong focus on Hammond and guitar – an approach we've come to really love on their 45s for the Tramp label, and which holds together very well over the extended course of this full length set! There's no vocals, no horns, just wicked small combo instrumentation – with a focus on organ and guitar that's neither 60s soul jazz, nor just another Booker T ripoff – and instead a very unique approach by this up-and-coming group. Titles include "Soul Saviour Stew", "Paper Cut", "Who's In Here", "Brain Damage", "No Bones", "Hash Cake", and "2lbs Of Funk In a 1lb Bag" – a title that may well sum up the whole record!

✨✧ Lucky BrownMystery Road ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Totally wicked funk from Lucky Brown – a contemporary set, but one recorded with all the grit in the grooves you'd hear from some ancient studio sessions from the late 60s! Lucky's not just another funk revivalist – as he goes here for a sound that's never too perfect, and which often has a slight degree of distortion – of the type we love in the best muddy funky 45s we have in our collection, or which you might hear on some of the best vintage work by artists like Lyman Woodard or Stark Realith! And by that, we don't mean that the sound is bad – just that it's perfectly pitched to have the right sort of "funk" – never too clean, never too polished, and with a nicely trippy quality that especially comes through in a few of the album's longer jams. Titles include "Brown's Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "Golden Nugget", "Santosa", "Exquisite Corpse (part 1)", "Argon (parts 1 & 2)", "Negra Modelo", and "Chicken Rock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered edition of 500! Sticker indicates a bonus download, but we're not sure it's there. Still, the vinyl is great – nice and heavy!)
