Philadelphia International, 1973. 2LP Gatefold
The setting is the Golden Gate, but the sound is pure Philly International – a rare early live performance from the label, featuring some of its key vocal heavyweights working here with live accompaniment from MFSB! Although the instrumental group backed Philly artists often in the studio, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mainstream/We Want Sounds (UK), 1972. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most amazing albums ever from Frank Foster – a totally righteous set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with the Basie Band! The format here is right up there with the best on Strata East at the time – a large-group session that's filled with some of the hippest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strut (UK), 1974. 2LP (reissue)
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one – working in an incredible blend of jazz and more traditional Egyptian-styled sounds – a blend ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swan/Sundazed, Late 50s/Early 60s.
A wonderful collection of work from Swan Records – the legendary Philly indie who was one of the city's first great sources of rock, pop, and soul – presented here in a special focus on female artists who recorded for the label! The package has some very well-chosen cuts – as a ... CD
Craft, Mid 60s.
A great collection of rare material by one of the greatest groups on the British scene in the 60s – the legendary Zombies, a powerhouse of creative pop headed by Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, and Chris White! This package includes a lot of great non-LP cuts from the group, including a few ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tribe/Solid (Japan), 1976. (reissue)
One of the most obscure albums on the Tribe Records label from the 70s – and one of the greatest too! The Mixed Bag were a group that featured keyboardist Eddie Russ and reed player Larry Nozero – both of whom worked together beautifully on Russ' classic first album for the Jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
We Want Sounds (UK), 1968. Gatefold (reissue)
An incredibly groovy late 60s soundtrack from Michel Legrand! La Piscine may well be one of the last under-reissued scores from Legrand's genius period – that time when he was hitting heavily on soundtracks for The Thomas Crown Affair, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, and other classics. This one's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Takt/Teichiku (Japan), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
A cool little record – one that features a bit of talking from Kikko at the beginning of each track, but with a groove that's mostly 60s instrumentals overall! Kikko talks sweetly and somewhat sexily – introducing each tune in Japanese briefly, before the record then rolls into some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Japan), 1971. Gatefold (reissue)
A sweet little set from Japanese keyboardist Masahiko Sato – one that has him playing both acoustic and electric piano, amidst a set of larger backings from Jiro Inagaki and his Big Soul Media group! The sound here is really unique – a bit like some of the fuller American jazz sides at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino/Warner, 1987.
The cover echoes the classic Pleased To Meet Me album by The Replacements, but the set features rare material and outtakes from the sessions from the album – acting almost like a part 2 to one of their best-loved albums from the Sire years!

Kamal Abdul Alim & The Brothers

Dance (2021 Record Store Day Release)
Stash/Soul Brother (UK), 1988. (reissue)
A really fantastic little record – a set that shows a strong evolution of spiritual jazz styles into the 80s! The set was recorded at a time when the jazz underground was really getting a lot of exposure, and was bursting forward with a new sense of hope – a quality that you can really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Platinum City/Luv N' Haight, Late 70s. (reissue)
An obscure set of clubby soul from the Dallas scene – led by the mysterious Round Robin on vocals and percussion! The group hit the speed of some of the disco dancefloor work of the time, but have a lean style that focuses much more on their surprisingly sharp instrumentation – which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 1972.
Rare material from the Flamin Groovies – tracks recorded in England in 1972, originally intended as an album to be issued by United Artists – but most of which never saw the light of day, as the label issued a few singles, saw poor sales, then cut the Flamin Groovies loose! Yet the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Denon (Japan), 1976. (reissue)
A really unusual set from the Japanese scene of the 70s – and a record that represents some of the higher pinnacles of their recording technology at the time! The songs here are billed as "Japanese traditional melodies by PCM Recording Systems" – and they are hardly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Eastwood Music Group, 2021. 3LP
A very cool set from the Texas scene – one that's overflowing with new work by some of the hippest soul, funk, and hip hop artists in the Lonestar State – and a few others too! The set features work from Black Pumas, Leon Bridges, N'Dambi, Sha La Das, Holy Hive, Badbadnotgood, Ghost ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. (reissue)
Mindblowing trio work from Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita – in a group that's equally noteworthy for its incredible reed performances from the mighty Akira Sakata! The pairing of Sakata and Yamashita was one of the greatest things in Japanese jazz in the 70s, and certainly one of that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reel To Reel, Early 60s. 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic addition to the too-small catalog of work from the wonderful Harold Land – the west coast tenorist whose sound was maybe more of a bridge to the New York scene in the 50s and 60s – as you'll hear in this collection of well-recorded and unreleased material from his key years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hilton's Concept/Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. (reissue)
A holy grail of funky music – and a rare gem from the DC scene of the 70s! Keyboardist Hilton Felton cut this wicked killer for his own tiny label – Hilton's Concept – and it's a very unique blend of jazz and funk modes, done with help from members of The Blackbyrds and Three ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colemine, 2010s. 2LP Gatefold
A massive selection of work from the contemporary underground scene – cuts that previously appeared as limited edition 7" singles on the excellent Colemine labels – one of our favorite sources for contemporary funk! The set's got as much vintage vibe as you'd guess from the label ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Early 70s/2021.
The classic Hi Records vocals of Al Green, mixed with larger orchestrations – all for a sound that's completely sublime! Titles include "Look What You Done For Me", "Take Me To The River", "Tired Of Being Alone", "Call Me", "Let's Stay ... LP, Vinyl record album
