✨✧ AfrodisiaElephant Sunrise ... CD
Comma/Cordial (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from a funky group who really lead with their basslines and love their rhythms – so much so that vocals are often an afterthought when it comes to the grooves! These guys are German, but they've got a righteous sound that really lives up to the flavor of the cover – and we're guessing that the combo is one of those unique hybrids of American and European players on the overall scene – working with wickedly tight sounds on the bass and drums, dosed throughout with jazzy keyboard solos, tenor sax riffs, and lots of funky guitar. Titles include "Good Thang", "Wild Turkey", "TMFF", "Elephant Sunrise", "Psychic Summers", "Could It Only Be Me", and "Going Down To The Disco". CD

Otis ClayLive Again ... LP
Yupiteru (Japan), 1984. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
Otis Clay recorded live in Japan – working before a very appreciative audience, and hitting grooves that are right up there with his best 70s work on Hi Records! The sound is a bit looser than Hi – which is a nice change – and Clay's really in command on the set, leading the group with a strong sense of personality, and serving up great vocals with a strong deep soul feel. The grooves are filled with classic Memphis soul moments – and titles titles include "Hard Working Woman", "Ellie", "Trying To Live My Life Without You", "His Precious Love", "Love & Happiness", "Here I Am Baby", and "Love Don't Love Nobody".

El RegoEl Rego ... LP
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

MoonglowsBest Of The Moonglows – 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection ... CD
Chess/MCA, Late 50s. Used ... $6.99
Some of the greatest doo wop of the 50s – big hits, to be sure, but still incredible work that helped to redefine the sound of the vocal group at the time! Bobby Lester's time with the Moonglows was a really special moment for the group – a point when they started to focus their sound even more, and create that strong sense of juxtaposition and surprise that made even simple tunes sparkle with a humanity that was really wonderful. They never resorted to tricks or gimmicks in the way that some other groups did, but they managed to make each tune really come alive with their own special magic – in a sound that still explodes off a record like this years later! Titles include "Ten Commandments Of Love", "In My Diary", "Blue Velvet", "Sincerely", "Most Of All", and "Over & Over Again". CD

Dezi PhillipsKickin' It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
The only full album ever recorded by Dezi Phillips – a set issued at the end of the 80s, but with a bouncy, catchy style that recalls soul music from a few years before! Production is by Bernard Terry – who'd worked with a few other key acts before Dezi – and he brings a strong command of the studio to the record, particularly a way of mixing beats from the streets with some tighter hooks for the radio audience! Phillips' youthful presentation of the lyrics really works well for the grooves – and titles include "Fine/Fresh", "Watchin You", "Love U Forever", "This Ring Is For U", "In & Out", "Why You Wanna", and "Didn't Do It". CD features bonus cuts – "Who's That Girl", "My Kinda Girl", "Why You Wanna (ext)", "Why You Wanna (hot mix)", and "Why You Wanna (near house mix)". CD

✨✧ VariousGimme Shelter – A Kaleidoscopic Collision ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dude! This is a genre-busting compilation that features tracks that mix together rock, soul, and more than a bit of funk – a key look into the crossover scene that sprung out of the Monterey Pop/Fillmore generation, and which continued into the 70s with some very fuzzy funk! Guitars are in full force here – ripping and riffing on the album's tunes, pulled from rare soul and pop albums that always command a fierce price with the beathead generation. Titles include "Can I Dedicate" by The Loading Zone, "Get Back" by Deirdre Wilson Tabac, "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" by Rotary Connection, "I'm Funky" by Grootna, "I Know I'm Losing You" by Rare Earth, "Compared To What" by Sweetwater, "I'll Say It Again" by Sweet Linda Divine, "Nobody" by Larry Williams & Johnny Guitar Watson with The Kaleidoscope, "I Got A Thing For You Daddy" by Ruth Copeland, and "Gimme Shelter" by Merry Clayton.
