✨✧ SpeedometerDiggin Deeper ... CD
Freestyle (UK), Late 90s/Early 2000s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wealth of rare early work from the UK's Speedometer – tunes that were initially pressed up only as limited edition singles on labels like Timmion, Soul Fire, and Kennel Klub – all brought together here for the first time on CD, along with a few previously unissued numbers! Speedometer have definitely been one of the heaviest funk combos going on the other side of the Atlantic for a number of years – a Meters-influenced group with plenty of bass and scratchy guitar at the bottom of their tunes – but also a great talent for blasting the horns way way over the top, and changing up the rhythms with a tightness that few other combos can match! The whole CD's a delight all the way through – and is just about the only way you'll find these tracks anymore. Titles include "Soul Safari", "Speedometer (parts 1 & 2)", "Descarga D'Escargot", "It's My Thing", "Two Beat Beast", "Upstairs At Boston Road", "Up The Down", "Ain't Going To Thursford (parts 1 & 2)", "Hold The Bus", "Time For Change", and "Accra International Airport".

SpeedometerOur Kind Of Movement ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $13.99
Speedometer have been giving us great funky music for many many years – yet this album may well have the group hitting a whole new level in sound – able to hold on to all the gritty elements of their early days, while also expanding in ways that touch onto Afro Funk, psychedelic funk, and cinematic funky modes too! The core instrumentation is great – with a lineup that's maybe bigger than at the start, but which also adapts to some well-placed shifts in style – on tunes that are half instrumental, and half vocal – the latter of which feature contributions from Vanessa Jamie, Najwa Ezzaher Perso, and James Jr. Titles include "We Gave Up Too Soon", "Abuja Sunrise", "Kashmir", "Edge Of Fear", "Mo Crunch", "Funky Amigo", "Mind Escape", "Look No Further", and "Time To Slow It Down".

Billy Wooten & SpeedometerLive At The Jazz Cafe ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... $22.99
A killer set of funky jazz from veteran vibes man Billy Wooten – backed by mod funk masters Speedometer – live at the London's Jazz Cafe! The hour + set was captured back in 2003, and the players are in fantastic form, sounding like they've worked together for years. They totally roll with a funky vibe, too, not so much on the gritty side of the sound, but with a deft, controlled energy that's phenomenal. Wooten's vibes out from of guitar, sax trumpet, flute, keys, drums and percussion of the mighty Speedometer. We wish we were there! Titles include groovy takes "Open Up JB (Paarty)", plus "Sookie Sookie", "In The Rain", "In The Middle", "Steve's Song", plus Wooten's "Chicango (Chicago Land)", "Monkey Hips & Rice" and more. CD

✨✧ SpeedometerShakedown ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Long-running UK funk & soul combo Speedometer – still flooring it the The Shakedown – and bring it with a wider scope than ever before! The group has more vocal numbers in the set, and why wouldn't they when they have the lovely and soulful Rita Currie and guests of the caliber of funky diva/James Brown collaborator Martha High! The range of instrumental styles has been broadened, too. You've got your horn-heavy funky soul stormers, Hammond groovers and hard charging Latin funk jams with Snowboy on the timbalas, bongos and bata drums. Great stuff all around! Titles include "Again And Again", "La Nuea Manera", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Orisha", "The Shakedown", "Rubberneck", "Dragging Me Down", "Kool To Be Uncool" and more. CD

✨✧ SpeedometerSoul Groovin' ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Speedometer – one of the coolest combos cooking in the contemporary deep funk underground! The album offers a great chance to hear the group live – playing with a sound that's every bit as sharp as on their studio records, with an edge that's even grittier – proof that these guys have plenty going on in the instrumental department, as they deliver a full-on assault filled with heavy drums, burning Hammond, choppy guitar, and lots of great work on horns! Ria Currie joins the group for some very soulful lead vocals on a few tracks – and titles include "At The Speakeasy", "Soul Grooving", "Kool & The Gang/Let The Music Take Your Mind", "Work It Out", "No Man Worries", "Am I Your Woman", "Kool To Be Uncool", and "Answer to Mother Popcorn".

✨✧ SpeedometerThis Is Speedometer ... CD
Blow It Hard (UK), 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Speedometer – a UK power-combo who've really grown their sound over the years! This one's the group's first full-length effort, and it's a really kickin little record with even more to offer than their great 45s! The group's expanded their lineup to feature some great horn work, smoking Hammond, and even some occasional sock-soul vocals from The Speedettes – a female group with a really great sound – not hokey or cliched at all, but with the searing style of some of the best deep soul female groups of the funk years, like The Emotions or The Exciters in their later recordings. The sets shifts easily from vocals to instrumentals – staying funky all the time, but nicely changing up the mode of the tunes. Titles include "What Am I Gonna Do", "Monkey Stick", "Wait Up", "It's Our Turn", "You Know You Can", "Mullet", "Growbag", and "Episode In Palmetto". CD

Dome (UK), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy 2CDs ... $16.99
A hefty collection of work from Down To The Bone – one that focuses on all the great tracks they issued on 12" singles, which really helped their sound set fire to dancefloors over the years!

Dona OneteRebujo ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
Fast-moving grooves from Dona Onete – a raw-voiced singer who really brings a lot to the music – which often feels like samba turned up a few notches on the speedometer! Rhythms are both from acoustic and electric percussion – moving quickly, but with a pace that never seems to dampen the energy of Onete – a singer whose years of experience really come through in the lyrics! Instrumentation includes strong tropical lines on guitar, a bit of sax, and a huge range of percussion from JP Cavalcante – who even plays a wooden chair at one point. Titles include "Festa Do Turbarao", "Tambor Do Norte", "Balanco Do Acai", "Musa Da Babilonia", "Vem Chamegar", and "Mexe Mexe". CD

VariousSeven Heven – Perfect Little Slice Of Soul, Funk & Funky Jazz From The 21st Century ... CD
BBE (UK), 2000s. Used ... $8.99
Modern funky soul in a terrific compilation on BBE – featuring great stuff from James Taylor Quartet, Timo Lassy, Speedometer, Soopasoul, Filthy Six, Ligua Franca, Milano Jazz-Dance Combo and more – fantastic stuff released in the past decades on funky 45s by a wonderful international roster of neo classic combos! The unifying factor to the material here is a devotion to timeless sounds born of the 60s & 70s, but it's got pretty far reach – from rawish funky soul, to club jazz, to Latin soul and beyond. Great stuff released as singles by some of our favorite contemporary labels like Freestyle, Record Kicks, Blow It Hard and Wah Wah – plus some number we're only now being hipped to! 20 tracks on the CD version: "Senouci Parts 1 & 2" by James Taylor Quartet, "The Time Is Right For Love (45 Swingo-O Remix)" by Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos, "The More I Look At You" by Timo Lassy feat Jose James, "Lover And A Friend" by Speedometer, "Agua Y Luz" by Sasso, "Chips & Salsa" by Lil' Dave, "Get Carter" by Filthy Six and more.

VariousStay On The Groove – 20 Modern Funk Anthems Compiled By Adrian Gibson ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2005. Used ... $12.99
One of the funkiest collections we've heard in a long time – and that's saying a lot, considering that most of the work is of recent vintage! The set was put together in support of the rich range of modern acts who've been picking up the older deep funk vibe in the past decade or so – artists from the Desco years onward who've not only been loving the sound set down by James Brown, but who also know how to play and produce records that bristle with the same depth as older work! Adrian Gibson of Jazz Cafe fame brought the whole thing together, and given his experience at the frontline of the scene, he's got a well-tuned ear to pick out the best of the bunch. 20 tracks in all – including "Work It Out" by Speedometer, "El Padrino" by MFOS, "Tighten Up" by The Bamboos, "Fakin It" by Sharon Jackson & The Soul Destroyers, "No Rest For The Wicked" by BDM, "Stay On The Groove" by New Mastersounds, "Battle Of Funk" by Jaguar, "Funky Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Troubled Soul, "Ham Gallery" by Poets Of Rhythm, and "Gravel Rash" by Cookin On Three Burners.

VariousVersion Excursion – Reworks, Re-edits, & Remixes From The Counterpoint Archive ... CD
Counterpoint (UK), 2005. Used ... $6.99
Older tunes, incredibly reworked – all numbers that appeared in original versions on previous Counterpoint Records compilations, but presented here in whole new versions! Over the past decade or so, Counterpoint has become one of our most trusted sources for unusual grooves – always right on the money when it comes to picking rare tunes for its excellent compilations. But along with those compilations, Counterpoint has also commissioned new takes on the music by a variety of current and cutting-edge talents – artists like Nicola Conte, Bugz In The Attic, Yam Who, Beatfanatic, and others – all of whom have remixed and remade tracks for limited edition Counterpoint singles. Most of these tracks were only available for a short time, and only on vinyl – but this set brings the best of them back, along with a few other side projects that were never issued at the time – all in a beautiful flurry of tunes that link together the past and the future through a set of magical grooves! Titles include "It's You (Nicola Conte rmx)" by Sunaga T Experience, "Suite Guaracho part 2 (Beatfanatic re-edit)" by Tata Vasquez, "Parenthe-Seizure (Les Gammas rmx)" by Sheila Landis, "In The Name Of Love" by Ernesto, "Everything (Yam Who re-edit)" by Dwayne Morgan, "The Way It Used To Be (Misa beats)" by Misa Negra, "Zouk" by Ennio Styles, "Summer Love (Beyond There remix)" by Billy Wright, "No Other Love But You (Nick The Record re-edit)" by Clarice Labbe, "Wilderness" by Speedometer, and "25 Hours part 2 (DJ Friendly re-edit)" by Lanier.

✨✧ PerceptionsIntroducing The Perceptions ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
A deep funk supergroup – one that features Snowboy on congas, alongside members of The Sound Stylistics, Speedometer, and James Taylor Quartet! The groove's as classic as you might expect from such a resume – a sound that starts in 60s soul jazz, and moves up to funky 70s moments – almost sitting perfectly in that great era when Prestige and Blue Note were changing up their groove at the start of the decade! Instrumentation features Grant Green-like guitar, Jack McDuff-ish Hammond, and nicely cooking tenor, alto, and flute – all used in different combinations throughout the set. Titles include "Fathead", "Running The Risk", "Right The Wrong", "Inside Outside", "Nicky's Knack", "Rolling & Tumbling", and "Hurricane Warning". CD
