✨✧ VariousStrange Games & Funky Things 5 Smoking 70s Soul & Rare Grooves – DJ Spinna & BBE Soundsystem ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest installments so far in this legendary series – an excellent back of laidback funky cuts – super-sweet stuff, with a great lowdown sort of groove! The rhythms here are all nice and mellow, but the cuts are still plenty funky – right at the right sort of pace to be the kind of older funk numbers that inspire the hip hop generation – usually with a different sort of sound than the 70s funk that was hitting the mainstream back in the day! Spinna's done a great job with the track selection here – proving that even if you're digging in familiar territory, picking the right cuts is still a hell of an art – and the CD version features one mixed disc, and one unmixed CD – with cuts that include "Family Tree" by Family Tree, "Get It Up For Love" by Ned Doheny, "Sweet Stuff" by Sylvia, "Capricorn Rising" by Richard Evans, "Motherland" by Sylvia St James, "Cameo" by Eddie Senay, "For The Love Of Money" by Philly Armada Orchestra, "Brazilian Skies" by Bill Summers, "Asafo Beesuon/Obaa Yaa Aye Me Bone" by CK Mann & His Carousel 7, "Hunt Up Wind" by Hiroshi Fukimura, "Always There" by Wood Brass & Steel, "War Is Coming" by War, "Hands Of Time" by Perfect Circle, and "I Ain't Got The Love" by The Ambassadors.

VariousMod Jazz Rides Again ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Sammy Davis Jr is looking pretty darn hip on the cover – and all the artists inside are sounding pretty darn hip as well – coming together during the glory days of soul jazz, at a time when blues, vocals, and R&B were also criss-crossing into other styles too! There's an upbeat, soul-drenched, ultra-cool vibe to the whole thing – not too-familiar retro jazz numbers, but instead a wealth of rare cuts that often come from the sort of 7" singles that change hands for big money in the funky 45 underground, next to obscure album cuts too – mixed with the kind of unreleased material that the Ace/Kent label has always done such a good job of digging up! The package explodes with groovy musical delights – and titles include "What Is love" by Bobby Jenkins, "Out House" by Eddie Bridges & His Lowriders, "Empire City" by Gene Walker & The Combo, "Pushin The Button Of Soul" by Hank Jacobs, "Fat Man" by Montego Joe, "The Bold" by Russell Evans & The Nite Hawks, "Hey Mrs Jones" by Jimmy Witherspoon, "Poppa Nickel" by The Tempo Rhythms, "Sherry's Party" by Ray Johnson, "Hot Tamale Man" by Harold Betters, "Shank & Grits" by Ray Shanklin, "Pluckin" by Jimmy Mayes & The Soul Breed, "East 24th Ave" by Billy Graham & The Escalators, and "Do The Thing" by Gate Wesley.

✨✧ VariousExotic Blues & Rhythm Vols 11 & 12 – Eeny Meeny/Loc A Li – Blues & Rhythm, Popcorn, Exotica, & Tittyshakers ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful sounds from that amazing time in American music – a period when it seemed that there were so many records being made, new sounds were always finding a way to get onto vinyl! This collection represents an excellent criss-crossing of modes – exotic styles finding their way into soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and even a little bit of rock – thanks to plenty of weird instrumental modes used to great effect in the studio, and some nicely heavy percussion too! There's no set genre on the collection, but the music is all nicely unified in a fantasy of the exotic – which makes for some plenty playful tracks throughout. CD features the full tracks from the 10" vinyl releases Loc-A-Li and Eeny Meeny – and titles include "Jack Hammer" by Rusty Evans, "Eeny Meeny Minie Mo" by Little Luther, "Yabucoa" by Hector Rivera, "Princess Of Persia" by Billy Grammer, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "I'm Hurted" by Mamie Perry, "Say There" by Wes Reynolds, "Shakin All Over" by Tommy Bruce, "Oh Lord Give Me Back My Baby" by Bobby Nichols, "Loc A Li" by Little Victor & His Jivin Five, "The Magic Ring" by Dante & Friends, "Don't Leave My Arms" by Terry Phillips, and "Ain't That Bad" by Pancho Villa & The Bandits.

✨✧ VariousNew Life Vol 2 – Independent & Regional Jazz In Great Britain 1968 to 1988 ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous collection of overlooked jazz from the UK scene – most of it recorded in the late 60s and 70s, at a time when the nation was really exploding with new ideas – so much so, the bigger labels weren't able to keep pace with recording during the period! Instead, it was left to the smaller indies and imprints to pick up the slack – which they did wonderfully as a new explosion of labels showed up at the start of the 70s – companies who recorded some of the gems on this set, as a much-needed document of the fresh sounds that were being created all over the country. Most folks associate this period with either the free improv or jazz rock records that were circulated more widely – but this set uncovers a huge amount of jazz that's often modal or spiritual, and which represents artists who are never going too far out – even while they're breaking all the molds of the hardbop generation. This second volume in the series is even better than the first – and is definitely one of those genre-defining compilations that you'll be returning to often in years to come. Titles include "Pharoah Sanders" by Billy Jenkins, "Pipe Of Peace" by Frank Evans, "Dunkelfunk" by Inner Ear, "Sunspots" by RedBrass, "Bikini Atoll" by Big Baffle, "Unicorn" by Don Rendell Five, "Come Listen To Me" by Gerry McClelland, "A North Country Lass Tells Her Sorrows" by Robert Shaw & The Dick Hawdon Quintet, "Bending Over Backwards" by Music Explosion, "Put The Wood On The Fire" by Hotpoints, and "Senufo Chant" by Pat Crumly Sextet.
