✨✧ VariousAtlantic Unearthed – Soul Sisters (rare & previously unissued tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime soul work from the glory days of Atlantic Records – and most of it unfamiliar too! As with the male volume in this great Unearthed series, this female volume is filled with amazing rarities from Atlantic – 5 previously unreleased tunes by some of the label's best female singers, plus another 11 tracks that show that even when they were topping the charts, Atlantic was still dedicated to putting out some great deep soul singles! Compiler David Nathan really did his homework here – not only picking out choice singles and b-sides for the compilation, but also digging up the rare unissued tunes that totally make the set worthwhile, even if you think you've got it all in your record collection! Titles include the previously unissued tracks "I Ain't That Easy To Lose" by Betty Swann, "Rescue Me" by Dee Dee Warwick, "It's Growing" by Margie Joseph, "Count The Days" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, and "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me" by The Sweet Inspirations – plus the titles "Thankful For What I Got" by Barbara Lewis, "It Ain't Who You Know" by Jackie Moore, "Full Time Woman" by Irma Thomas, "I Got To Love Sombody's Baby" by Judy Clay, "What A Man" by Laura Lee, "My Way" by Aretha Franklin, and "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy.

✨✧ VariousCarolina Funk – Funk 45s From The Atlantic Coast (UK version) ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazzman blow the roof off the Carolina scene here – digging through a wealth of rare 70s funk to explode the myth that the states are only home to beach music and shag tunes! The grooves here are every bit as gritty as previous Jazzman outings to Texas, Florida, and the Midwest – and the package offers up a few classics, some unreleased numbers, and a bunch of tunes we've never heard before – all supported by the kind of in-depth notes that Jazzman does better than anyone else! And sure, we've been digging funky 45s for years – but its sets like this that almost get us more excited in the music than the originals – thanks to the overall conception and quality of the work. Titles include "Creation Of Music" by Primitive, "Darkness" by Gamith, "Just Take Your Time" by Innersouls, "Super Good" by Dynamite Singletary, "Funky Soul Brother" by The Soul Drifters, "The Road" by Communicators & Black Experience Band, "Theme Of Blackbyrds" by The Black Exotics, "Good Time" by George Campbell, "Funky Mind" by Donnie Brown, "Doing What You Need To Do" by Anthony Burns, "JD's Funky Party Time" by JD, "Bad Woman" by Frankie & The Damons, "Ease It To Me" by Shirlean Williams & The Tempo's Band, "Stand Up & Be A Man (part 1)" by Sundia, and "You Ain't Miss It" by Roy Roberts.

✨✧ VariousWhat It Is – Funky Soul & Rare Grooves From The Vaults Of Atlantic, Atco & Warner Bros Records 1967 to 1977 (4CD box set) ... CD
Rhino, Late 60s/1970s. Used 4 CDs ... $49.99
One of the funkiest box sets we've ever seen – and amazingly issued by an American major label! The 4CD package is a treasure trove of funky work from a decade of Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, and related labels – tunes pulled both from mainstream album releases and much more obscure 45s – all expertly collected here into a whopping batch of 91 tracks, all packaged in a cool little box with an 80 page booklet! This one goes way past some of the silly "decade" sets from Rhino, and really displays a new level of cool and connoisseurship – one that finally appreciates the rich depths of funky work at their fingertips, most of which has not been properly reissued in the US! Titles include "Almendra" by Macondo, "Goin Down" by Allen Toussaint, "Wah Wah Man" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Spinning Wheel" by Wade Marcus, "Hard Times" by Baby Huey & The Baby Sitters, "What's So Never The Dance (parts 1 & 2)" by Houseguests, "8 Days On The Road" by Howard Tate, "Getting Uptown" by United 8, "Wanoah" by Black Heat, "Let It Crawl" by Society's Bag, "Flute Thing" by Seatrain, "Try It Again" by Bobby Byrd, "Funky To The Bone" by Freddi Henchi & The Soul Setters, "Improve" by Darrow Fletcher, "Rien Ne Va Plus" by Funk Factory, "Gossip" by Cyril Neville, "Spreadin Honey" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, "Stoned Soul" by Artie Christopher, "Sexy Coffee Pot" by Tony Alvon & The Belaires, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "Jan Jan" by The Fabulous Counts, "Sing A Simple Song" by The Noble Knights, "It's All In Your Mind" by Soul Angels, "Funky John" by Johnny Cameron, "Don't Come Around Here Any More" by Mark Putney, "Keep On Dancing" by The Commodores, "Right On Brother (part 1)" by South Shore Commission, "Pop Popcorn Children" by Eldridge Holmes, and "The Deacon" by Brute Force.

✨✧ VariousMo' Record Kicks – B Sides, Exclusives & Remixes For Forward Thinking Cats ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2010. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Massive music from the Record Kicks label – 21 tracks that have never been issued on CD before, including some rare singles, b-sides, and even a few cuts exclusive to the collection! If you know the Record Kicks name, you know that the label's a key outlet for contemporary deep funk and mod soul grooves – sounds that are steeped in the best influences of the 60s and 70s, but played by the cream of the crop of the global underground – including great funky groups on both sides of the Atlantic! With all the cuts on the collection, the set's one hell of a bargain – especially when you figure that it's got these cuts you won't find anywhere else: "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover" by The Hawk, "Waiting For Reforms" by Gizelle Smith, "Zebra 3" by The Link Quartet, "Scaramunga (Lack of Afro 7" edit)" by Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience, "With Time" by Katzuma, "Changes (funk edit)" by Milano Jazz Dance Combo, and "Irrompibles Hi Fi" by Crabs Corporation. Other cuts include "Get On Up" by Ray Lugo Les Express, "Soul Train" by Soul Fanatics, "Italian Spiderman Theme" by Enzo Bontempi, "Battle Of Yoker" by Privates Hammond Orchestra, "Nervous (Kenny Dope bonus beat rmx)" by New Mastersounds, "See & Don't See" by Dojo Cuts, "Red Flames" by The Underbelly, and "Air I Breathe" by Floyd Lawson & The Hearts Of Stone.

VariousThis Ain't Chicago – The Underground Sound Of UK House & Acid 1987 to 1991 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
This ain't Chicago, but the sound here owes plenty to the Windy City as well – as the collection documents an amazing criss-crossing of cultural modes that occurred when early UK house musicians took the sound of the underground into the bigger British club scene! In a way, this music's a third chapter in a journey that began when the post-disco American underground were digging the styles of the British electronic generation – then began to craft their own music with early house productions from Chicago and Detroit. These rose in such popularity with UK listeners, that by the end of the 80s, the grooves reversed themselves, and flowed back over the Atlantic – inspiring musicians like these to take the best elements of American house music, particularly Chicago acid, and push it even further into something new! And while the generation yielded plenty of lame tracks and crossover pop, this set shows the real deal – those excellent initial singles that made digging UK singles almost as great as US ones, at least for a brief while. 2CD package features 24 titles that include "Take Me High (mansion mix)" by Colm III, "Show Me What You Got (acid mix part 1)" by SLF, "Jealousy & Lies" by Julian Jonah, "Where's The Love Gone (rmx)" by Julie Stapleton, "Safety Zone" by Exocet, "Pressure Dub" by Ability II, "1666 (pyro-maniac mix)" by MD Emm, "Free To Be" by Window Smashers, "Twin Tub" by Return Of The Living Acid, and "Crashing" by Baby Ford.
