Brand New HeaviesDream On Dreamer (Dallas Austin mix, Heavies mix, Dallas Austin inst, Morales mix, Morales mix reprise, the Angel mix) ... 12-inch
Delicious Vinyl, 1992. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Great stuff from the Heavies – issued here on a US 12" single, with a huge bunch of extra mixes designed to get the cut on the dancefloor. If all the cuts on that second album were as good as this one, the group would still be in business today! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

✨✧ Brand New HeaviesMind Trips (superstar remix, Durham rmx, Durham inst, BNH rmx)/Bang ... 12-inch
Delicious Vinyl, 1995. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Given that this one was lifted from the Excursions album, which already featured a number of remixed songs – it's even more surprising that the folks at Delicious Vinyl were willing to come up with 4 more mixes! "Superstar" is by Mike Floss and Def Jef, and the "Durham" ones by Bob Durham". 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)

BB Boogie (Daz I Kue)Standing On The Wall ... LP
R2 (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
It's been many years since Daz I Kue first rocked our world with his grooves in Bugz In The Attic – and since that time, he's only gotten stronger and more soulful as a solo act – to the point where a new project like this almost blows away some of his previous work! As you might guess from the cover and name, the project has a very vintage feel – somewhere in the territory of late 70s/early 80s clubby funk, with warmer instrumentation than back in the Bugz days – and a fantastic sense of production that could almost have you playing this set alongside later Funkadelic material, or early work from Prince! Yet there's also a sharpness, too – that new vision of funk that's always made the London scene so wonderful – from the Incognito/Brand New Heavies years onward. Khari Simmons plays bass on most of the record – and the bass is definitely in the lead – and singers include Vanessa Freeman, Greg Blackman, Leroy Burgess, DNS, Monica Blaire, Joy Jones, and others – really helping flesh out the sound on tracks that include "Opposition", "Sweating & Shaking", "Wanna Be With You", "We Can Do It", "Standing On The Wall", "In The Middle", "Let Love Grow", "Stay Woke", and "RAyanne".

Beady BelleOn My Own ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $11.99
Beady Belle's not really on her own here – just working away from her regular group, with an all-star batch of musicians that includes Bugge Wesseltoft on piano and Fender Rhodes, and the mighty Joshua Redman on tenor sax! The album's got even more of a jazz core than some of the other Beady Belle albums of the past decade or so – thanks especially to some strong rhythmic lines propelled by the drums of Gregory Hutchinson and bass of Reuben Rogers, who work really well with Bugge's always-great keyboard lines – especially that strong sense of soul that he's developed in his acoustic playing in recent years. The set was recorded both in Oslo and New York – maybe making the record one of Beady's most international in approach, and maybe appeal as well – which (we hope!) will finally give this amazing Scandinavian soul singer the American fame she deserves. Titles include "Traffic In Mumbai", "Castle", "On My Own", "Bury", "Almost", "Marbles", "Lost Face", "Dear Hope", and "The Clouds". LP, Vinyl record album

Brit Funk AssociationFull Circle ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
An all star section of the Brit funky soul scene comes Full Circle – with members of Beggar & Co, Incognito, Hi Tension, Central Line and more – on a sweet batch tunes with an upbeat, jazzy groove, too! The opening "BFA Theme (Let The Music Blow Your Mind)" kicks the set off with a theme of togetherness that holds strong throughout, with lead vocals that are often shared by the group in harmony. Kenny Wellington & Paul McLean handle a lot of the songwriting & production, sharing vocals with sax player Patrick McLean, guitar player Breeze McKrieth, sax & flute player David Baptiste, and trombone player Jerome Harper. The Association also includes Steve Salvari & Peter Hinds on keys, Billy Osborne on percussion, and Ernie McKone on bass – with guests Simon Law, Toby Barker and others. Titles include "I've Found Someone To Love", "We Love The Sunshine On Our Face", "Stand Strong, Stand Tall", "Paradigm Shift", "Seventeen", "The First People", "Make It Funky", "Let's All Work It Out", "Shine" and "Get Up".
