Richard Nappy Mayers & OthersNappy Music Man – Soul, Pop, Disco, Funk, Crossover From Trinidad 1975 to 1981 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $11.99
A long-overdue look at the legendary producer/performer Richard Nappy Mayers – the man behind some really wonderful Caribbean grooves at the end of the 70s! Mayers' music here is often a version of American funk, speckled with all the right sort of elements from the islands – elements of percussion that create a more complicated rhythm pattern, or vocal elements that echo more familiar Caribbean sounds, but step into much more of a funk or club sort of style – all laid down with super-tight instrumentation that rivals the best American mainstream acts of the time! The work is way more than just offhand Caribbean funk – and instead has this wicked vibe that's like some of the Caribbean groups who'd moved up north to work on the New York funk scene in the 70s – and, later on, like some of the more criss-crossing styles that were percolating out of Compass Point Studios at the start of the 80s. The set's overflowing with funky club cuts – and contains deep notes on Nappy's life and music too – and tracks include "Wajang Woman", "Soca", "Light The Light", "You're Too Easy", "Nothing Is Impossible", "Easy Breezy", and "I Like To Make Love"by Embryo – plus "Hot For Your Love", "Wanna Believe In Love", and "3 Way Situation" by Nadie La Fond – and "Ebony Girl" by Nappy, "Let Yourself Go" by Nappy Mayers, "Makin Bacchanal" by Caesar, and "Poor Man's Son" by Sound Revolution.

✨✧ Albert KingLive Wire/Blues Power ... CD
Stax, 1968. Used ... $5.99
Plenty of blues power here – a searing live set recorded by Albert King before a very enthusiastic crowd at the Fillmore in the late 60s! The album's filled with lots of King's sharp-edged guitar lines – searing with a bit more soul than your usual bluesman, possibly in part because the backing group's so tight! At times, there's almost a bit of funk in the mix – given that the rhythm section romps it up pretty strongly – and the record stands nicely apart from some of the blues cliches that were creeping into the mix at the time. Titles include the 10 minute workout "Blues Power" – plus "Watermelon Man", "Night Stomp", "Blues At Sunrise", "Please Love Me", and "Look Out". (Blues, Soul) CD

✨✧ Stevie WonderFulfillingness' First Finale ... CD
Tamla, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 70s classic from Stevie Wonder – part of a great run of records in which he broke completely from his earlier Motown sound – and showed the world that he was one of the true musical visionaries of the decade! The righteous currents of his previous few albums are fully in place here, taken with a bit more focus that helped the record gain Stevie a few new followers in the crossover market, while still offering up plenty to please all the minds that had already been blown by is initial work of the 70s! There's some fantastic themes here, and so many new ideas too – and titles include the slow-funk moog classic "Creepin", which has these wonderful washes of sound throughout, weird vocals by Stevie, and some drums that bump around in off-kilter little patterns just at the right moments. The album also includes the hit "Boogie On Reggae Woman", plus "Too Shy To Say", "You Haven't Done Nothin", "It Ain't No Use", "Bird Of Beauty", and "Please Don't Go". CD
(BMG music club pressing.)
