Sr Langosta, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
A Caribbean experiment, but one that's more funky than anything else – served up here in a swirling blend of guitar, bass, keyboards, and horns – all with lots of very groovy touches around the edges!

FrightnrsNothing More To Say ... CD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
The Frightnrs have plenty more to say here – and they say it in a really sharp-edged approximation of older rocksteady modes!

Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are ... read more CD

Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever!

Daptone, 2009. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A gospel album, but one with deep funk roots – the first full length album from Naomi Shelton, a vocalist we first came to love for her funky 45s on the Desco and Daptone labels!

Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 15.98
Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records!

Maybe it's the collaboration ... read more CD

A tight little duo who don't seem to need anyone else – given the tremendous power of their work on drums and Hammond B-3! These guys are funky jazz at the core, but also open to lots more ideas too – and really blow us away with their work here, which seems to include no other ... read more CD

Mushroom & Alison Faith LevyYesterday I Saw You Kissing Tiny Flowers ... CD
4 Zero (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $7.99
Mushroom's working here with vocalist Alison Faith Levy – a singer who really helps the group find some new space, and who also brings in a slightly folksy focus to their heavier jams!

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings100 Days 100 Nights ... CD
Daptone, 2007. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 14.99
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... read more CD

Dribblous Mayhem, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
A surprisingly strong set from radio personality/author Rickey Vincent – a set that's got the man himself on the cover, looking like some heir to the George Clinton empire – which is mighty fitting, given the old school vibe of the set! The album's got a definite 80s funk sort of ... read more CD
