Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios!

Amazing!

Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A massive album by Lamont Dozier – probably his best ever! Every cut's a winner, and the LP shines with a sharpness and tightness that's missing from some of Lamont's other LPs from the 70s. The songwriting is impeccable – and as the album progresses, you get that eerie "deja ... read more CD

Nemperor/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A great little album by Lenny White – nicely restrained in the best moments, with less of the heavy-hitting fusion sound that you'd hear on his other albums – and even done with a strong current of funk, which really sends the whole thing home in a great way!

A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan! Still, there's more than enough nice moments – ... read more CD

There's nothing bitter about these grooves at all – as the sound is warmly wonderful – and so sweet, you can't help but be drawn into the music!

The street feet here are pretty funky ones – maybe more so than you'd guess from the relatively "stock" look of the cover image – as the album's got the kind of sharp instrumental core that you'd be likely to find on some of the best Bay Area groovers from late 70s Fantasy ... read more CD

Fantastic funky flute from Ronald Snijders – a European player of the 70s, but one whose work really reminds us a lot of the soulful groove of Bobbi Humphrey at the same time!

Overlooked soul by this early 80s combo who's almost better on the ballads than they are on the groovers!

Sweet 80s funk from Gary – an artist who's got a great way of crafting lean, mean grooves that offer up a compact take on the ensemble funk mode of the 70s!
