Tee Mac featuring Marjorie BarnesNight Illusion ... CD
SKJ/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980. Used ... $11.99
A sweet bit of funky club from Tee Mac – a set that was recorded in Lagos at the end of the 70s, but which has plenty of American disco touches overall! Tee plays some sweet flute solos in the mix, and the record also features some great lead vocals from Majorie Barnes – who tops off some of the best tracks as they step around in a mix of clubby rhythms and Mac's jazzy solos! Before returning to Nigeria in the late 70s, Tee scored big fame for some work on the biggest singles by Silver Convention (he wrote "Fly Robin Fly" and "Stand Up & Boogie") – and while that disco experience shows in the care and class of the production, the overall sound here is a lot warmer and more fluid than any sort of Euro disco. Titles include "Night Illusion", "Living Everyday", "Struggle", "Hit Hit", "A Certain Way To Go", and "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo". (Global Grooves, Soul) CD

✨✧ Rance Allen GroupI Feel Like Going On ... LP
Stax, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great little record from Rance – recorded in 1980 on his return to Stax after a stint at Capitol. The set's got a really wonderful feel – all the deep soul of Rance's early albums for Stax, mixed with some of the bubbling touches he picked up from working with Larry Mizell at Capitol. The whole thing's a magically righteous experience – and Rance's voice is better than ever, with a feel that's got a bit of DJ Rogers in it. Titles include "I Feel Like Going On", "Where Did I Go Wrong", "Some People", "Can't Get Enough", and "I Will Forever Lean On You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a large name in marker and a pormo stamp. Labels have some pen.)

Rance Allen GroupSmile ... LP
Stax, 1979. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An oft-overlooked album that Rance and group recorded during a return to Stax after their record on Capitol with Larry Mizell. The groove here is more tightly produced than on their earlier Stax LPs, with more of a modern soul sound, and more of an orientation towards a dancefloor beat – but the core of the music is still in the group's gospel-drenched soul style of the early years. Rance's voice is in beautiful form (as always), and his rich baritone sings out loud and clear on tracks like "I'm Thankful", "Smile", "Going Home", and "Where Have All Your Friends Gone".

Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $38.99

Titles include "A Knife & A Fork", "Without A Woman", "I Wanna Be The Only One", "If That Don't Make You Cry", and "I Get Carried Away" by Kip Anderson – and "You're Running Too Fast", "You Name It I've Had It", "A Lucky Loser", "From Warm To Cool To Cold", and "Nothing Can Separate Us" by Willie Walker.

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

Patti AustinLive At The Bottom Line ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A live set from the great Patti Austin – but done at a level that's every bit as tight as her studio work from the time! Patti's in a perfect balance between jazz and soul here – and works with sweet arrangements from Dave Grusin and Leon Pendarvis – the latter of whom also leads the backing group on keyboards, and really makes the sound come out right! Things are never too full – the combo's relatively small, with additional keyboards from Pat Rebillot, plus tenor from Michael Brecker and guitar from David Spinozza – a tight group who really help Patti groove. Tracks include "You Fooled Me", "Jump For Joy", "Rider In The Rain", "Let's All Live & Give Together", "Love Me By Name", "One More Night", and "Let It Ride". CD

Hank BallardJumpin' ... LP
King, 1963. Very Good ... $39.99
Late work from Hank Ballard's first run at King Records – some rocking soul tracks from the early 60s, with the gritty edge that we've come to expect from Hank. Titles include "Get Ready", "I'm Learning", "What's Your Name", "Excuse Me (I Think I've Got A Heartache)", 'She's The One" and "Your Lovin'". (Soul, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label pressing – nice and clean! Top cover seam is split, but rest of cover is nice. Record has a spot of paint on one track, which clicks for just a few spins.)

✨✧ Gene Barge, David Matthews, & Andre DavisStony Island – Original Soundtrack ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. Used ... $14.99
A sweet set of soundtrack funk – from a film named after one of our favorite streets in Chicago! Although the record's got an approach that's perhaps a bit tighter and smoother than anything going down on Stony in the late 70s, it does manage to share a good deal of styles with the Chi-soul scene of the time – thanks to work on the record from Chicagoans Gene Barge, Sonny Seals, and Tennyson Stephens! Many of the tracks on the set have a bad-walking soul approach – one that's kind of a mixture of funky and bluesy – and these are laid out next to some jazzier instrumentals that we like most of all – tunes that have a great funky soundtrack feel, but with a bit more fusion touches than usual, probably because of the work of David Matthews. Titles include "Percy Fired", "Party Lights", "High Speed Posters", "Back To Business", "Chase The Train", "Gangster City", "Dream Ride", and "Peace Of Mind". CD

Black Light OrchestraTouch Me Take Me (original, disco mix) ... 12-inch
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A gliding Italian disco number from the well-named Black Light Orchestra – a group who use strings over rhythms in a way that's a bit like Love Unlimited Orchestra – but with a groove that's a bit more compressed, and which relies here on some strong conga at the bottom! There's a warmth to the tune that we really like – and the disco mix on the flip has a bit more of a driving rhythm. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". LP, Vinyl record album

BrickWaiting On You ... LP
Bang, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
An overlooked killer from Brick – the group's fourth album, but every bit as tight and funkier as earlier sets! Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves. Titles include "Push Push", "Get Started", "All The Way", "Waiting On You", "Free", "Sweet Lips", and "Let Me Make You Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownBody Heat – Live At Studio 54 ... LP
Phoenix10, 1982. Good+ ... $4.99
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex Machine", "Body Heat", a 14 minute take on "This Is A Man's World", and the short "Bay Ridge Boogy", an instrumental by the Bay Ridge Band. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownPure Dynamite! ... LP
King, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
Raw live energy from the great James Brown – and a record that comes hot on the heels of Live At The Apollo! Like that one, this set was supposedly "recorded on the spot" – and it's even harder, faster, and noisier than that classic – with a loud-bursting sound that definitely lives up to the "dynamite" title, and which is far more unbridled than James on his King studio albums. The crowds seem to get equal time in front of the microphones as James – further enforcing the liveness of the record – and titles include "I'll Never Let You Go", "Good Good Lovin", "Shout & Shimmy", "Like A Baby", and "I'm Tired But I'm Clean". Album cover is great too – with a cool gatefold cover that's filled with photos of James, fans, and some lovely ladies! LP, Vinyl record album

Thomas Buck NastyBlast O Funk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Funkstone (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic funky set from the Philly scene of the 70s – a record that was maybe a few years late to get the kind of appreciation it deserved – but one with a quality level that stands up wonderfully over the years! Thomas Buck Nasty is both the name of the group and the lead singer – and the combo comes from the streets of Philly, with a harder edge than some of the more polished groups of the time – an ensemble funk approach that was honed through years of work at clubs and parties, to the point where the group's got a groove that's right up there with the sharpest points of the P-Funk universe – but served up with a nicely different vibe! Thomas has this deep soul approach to his vocals, but tuned towards funky rhythms – and the set's got some super-sharp production from T Life, who really lets the group be their own, and never tries to hit any sort of disco or too-commercial cliches of the time. The whole thing feels more like some of the mainstream funk albums circa 1976 than you'd guess from the date – and is almost more like a small label release than some of the more commercial RCA soul of the period. Titles include "That's What I'm Hoping Now", "Locket In The Pocket", "Blast O Funk", "Turn It Loose", "Flashback", and "Does This Mean Our Love Is Over". Excellent reissue pressing – with pages of notes on the group and the album, and bonus tracks that include "Blast O Funk (12" promo version)", "Blast O Funk (7" version)", and "Rock Til You Don't Care (7" version)".
