Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandBacao Rhythm & Steel Band ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 17.98
A fantastic full length set from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – a group who've really won us over in recent years with a fast flurry of funky 45s! The group take an older steel band sound, and forge it to a might tighter rhythmic impulse – with a sound that's often even funkier than the best (and few) funky steel band tracks from the 70s – served up with razor-sharp instrumentation, and great production in a Daptone/Soul Fire mode – which really keeps things sounding raw all the way through! The group's got strong ties to the Mighty Mocambos – and some other contemporary funk acts too – and the music is top-shelf all the way through, a funkier full steel band record than you'll ever hope to find. Titles include "Beetham Highway Ride", "Scorpio", "Pimp", "Tropical Heat", "Laventille Road March", "Round & Round", "Port Of Spain Hustle", "Jungle Fever", "Love Like This", and "Dog Was A Doughnut".

✨✧ Kerbside CollectionRound The Corner ... LP
Legere (France), 2022. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's plenty of funky combos out there these days – but Kerbside Collection may well be quietly working to become one of the best – as there's a tightness and razor sharp focus here that really seems to blow away most of their contemporaries! The bass and drums are wonderful at the core – as sharp as in a classic combo, but never too slavish to old school styles either – which means that they're always working a rhythm that's funky, but fresh too – qualities that are definitely followed through by the guitar, keyboards, and saxophone parts as well. These guys have been slowly building up a legacy for the better part of the decade – and this set really gives them a chance to shine – on titles that include "New Day New Year", "Metalurgia", "Cookin With 3 Burners", "Round The Corner", "Curaidh", and "Ortigas".

✨✧ Osaka MonaurailRiptide ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from one of our favorite funk combos ever – Japan's legendary Osaka Monaurail, easily one of the sharpest, tightest, most soulful groups of the past 20 years! These guys have a really no-nonsense approach to funk – from the top to the bottom, from the execution to the production, from the street to the speaker – with a sound that's one of the few to really get a pure approach to the best funky 45 material of the late 60s and early 70s! There's no hoke, no easy references, no simplistic retro sensibilities – just rock-solid, razor-sharp instrumentation – at a level to match the James Brown band on late 60s King Records – who are clearly an inspiration for the crew. This set's got all their best funky 45 energy firmly intact, but also features a few longer numbers with sweet solos too – and as usual, the vocals are completely unique – raw funk, but with an accented twist that really grabs us. Titles include "(She's A) Riptide", "The Horse", "Liberty", "Solar Eclipse", "Calinga", "Fruit Basket", and "Determination". CD
