Brown Bombers & Soul PartnersWait For Me/Just Fun ... 7-inch
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
The Brown Bombers come on here with plenty of firepower – soaring with the groove on "Wait For Me" – which has an upbeat Northern soul groove and some great harmonies to match! "Just Fun" follows in a similar spirit – an instrumental groove that echoes the vocal number on the a-side, but with some cool strings and guitar getting a bit more room to open up in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Child's View (Nobukazu Takemura)Fun Fair ... CD
Bubble Core, 1999. Used ... $3.99
Another wild one from Nobukazu Takemura, and an album that sounds quite a bit like his Child & Magic set of 1998! The style is minimal, electronic, and with lots of the Oval-ish bubblings and scrapings that have been occupying Takemura's work lately. Nicely issued in the US, and sure to expand Takemura's audience into whole new realms. Titles include "Pendulum", "After Image", "Sabure", "Cradle Of the Light", and "Assi Que Dodo". CD

Leslie Drayton & FunWhat It Is Is What It Is ... CD
Esoteric, Mid 80s. Used ... $7.99
Mellow smooth jazz and modern soul from trumpeter Leslie Drayton – working here with his group Fun, which features vocals by Barbara Morrison, alto sax by Curtis Peagler, and keyboards by Billy Childs. Most of the tracks are a bit too tinny to come off well – but there's a few nice enough moments that stay in more soulful territory. Titles include "Pershing Square", a nice mellow groover, plus "I'll Take It Easy", "Brownie Points", and "I'm Really Gonna Miss You". CD

Stan KentonFire, Fury & Fun ... LP
Creative World, 1974. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A hokey title, but a nice little set – one of Stan's under-rated cookers for his own Creative World label from the 70s! The tracks are all long, fresh, and warmly chromatic – a bit funky at times, and kind of a 70s take on the Kenton style of earlier years – pushing the solos forward strongly, while still working on the overall presence of the band. Soloists include Ramon Lopez on congas, Pete Erskine on drums, Kevin Jordan on trumpet, and Tony Campise on flute – and titles include the tasty Latin groover "Ramon Lopez", plus the cuts "Quiet Friday", "Hogfat Blues", "Roy's Blues", and "Pete Is A Four Letter Word".

Raw, incendiary live material from The Stooges, circa 1970 – recorded at NYC dive bar Ungano's, right around the time that Fun House was released! They blast through nearly all the tracks from Fun House here, minus "LA Blues", plus the rare "Have Some Fun/My Dream Is Dead", which as far as we know, was never released before Rhino Handmade dug up this incredible recording.

Van HuntFun Rises The Fun Sets ... CD
Godless Hotspot, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
The fun never sets when Van Hunt's around – especially given the fresh sound of this sweet little album! There's a crispy, gritty approach that's a bit different than Van Hunt's previous work – a way of bringing up the basslines and drums, while also dropping the singer's voice down into the mix a bit more – so that there's this kind of swirl of rhythm and lyrics together, which makes for a really unique groove! The sound is neither broken beat, nor 70s funk – but seems to draw plenty of inspiration from both – and the setting's really helped us get back into Van Hunt's music, especially as it's been a few years since we last heard from him – plenty of time for the singer to plot this great step forward from his previous album, What Were You Hoping For? Titles include "Headroom", "French For Cloud", "Teach Me A New Language", "Old Hat", "She Stays With Me", "A Woman Never Changes", and "Emotional Criminal". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisBig Fun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1974. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great Miles 70s groove albums – an album that's often as funky as you might expect from the cover, with a sound that's gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years! The noise of previous electric sessions is nicely toned down a bit here – leaving lots more room for soulful grooving – and although the selections were recorded over different dates, there's a very unified feel to the record – as most tracks have a similar groove, away from other Davis electric work of the period. Players vary throughout – and include Wayne Shorter and Sonny Fortune on reeds, Lonnie Smith and Chick Corea on keyboards, Ron Carter and Dave Holland on basses, John McLaughlin on guitar, and Al Foster and Billy Cobham on drums. Titles include "Great Expectations", "Ife", "Go Ahead John", and "Lonely Fire" – and the whole thing kicks! CD features 4 long bonus tracks too – "Yaphet", "The Little Blue Frog", "Recollections", and "Trevere". CD

Nat AdderleyLive At Memory Lane ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Nice hard swingin' quintet session, with a good late 60's groove. Nat Adderley borrows brother Cannonball's pianist Joe Zawinul, and Joe Henderson sits in on tenor. The set was recorded live, with the same sort of relaxed funky groove as the Cannonball live sets from the time. Cuts include "Fun", "Lavender Woman", "Painted Desert", and "On My Journey Now". Nice stuff, and the kind of material that Atlantic probably won't reissue anytime in the near future. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Atlantic StarrAtlantic Starr ... LP
A&M, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the money at all the best points! There's a number of sweet mellow ballads with lead vocals by Sharon Bryant, and other tracks that groove in an uptempo way that points towards more of the group's 80s work – a great mix of modes that makes for a really well-developed album right out of the gate. Titles include "Gimme Your Lovin", "The Love I Never Had", "Visions", "Keep It Comin", "Stand Up", "Where There's Smoke There's Fire", "We Got It Together", and "Being In Love With You Is So Much Fun".

Burt BacharachButch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid ... LP
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems are some of the instrumentals – which have Burt almost doing a Tijuana take on his classic A&M sound – in a style that's really wonderful! Our favorite cut is the amazing "South American Getaway" – a breezy vocal scatting number that seems to take the best of the Swingle Singers and I Cantori Modern and roll them into one groovy tune that soars, dips, turns, twists, and holds our dear heart close for 5 minutes and 13 seconds! It's a real gem, and worth the price of the album alone – but you'll also get a few other nice ones, like "The Old Fun City", "The Sundance Kid", "Come Touch The Sun", and "Not Goin Home Anymore".

Bar-KaysBest Of The Bar-Kays Volume 2 ... CD
Mercury, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $4.99
Late Bar-Kays – when the group were getting the "rock" out of their grooves, hitting the bass a lot heavier than before, and opening up in that slicker funkier style of the late 70s. Given that the group had a big hand in defining the sound and style of mainstream funk in the years before this work, they're still very much on top of their game – sounding as soulful as ever, even though they're not as dirty or gritty as they were in the Stax/Volt era. Titles include "Let's Have Some Fun", "Do It", "Spellbound", "Flying High On Your Love", "Dirty Dancer", "Sexomatic (12" mix)", "Whitehouseorgy", "Unforgettable Dream", "Today Is The Day", "She Talks To Me With Her Body (12" mix)", and "I Lean On You/You Lean On Me". 16 cuts in all!

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

BrickBrick ... LP
Bang, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves – absolutely killing it early on with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jaki ByardOn The Spot! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1967. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
One of the great ones! No kidding, Jaki Byard was an amazing talent in the 60s – and records like this one are rare treasures to be sought-after by any serious jazz fan. Byard had an incredible range of talents and influences – and, like his frequent bandmate Roland Kirk, he could often run through all of them in a very short stretch, packing each song with a wealth of feeling, technique, and sheer raw fun. This album's a darn tough one to find on vinyl – and it's reissued here with a previously unissued track. The group includes Byard on piano and alto, plus Jimmy Owens, Paul Chambers, and Billy Higgins. Tracks include "Spanish Tinge", "Olean Visit", "Geb Piano Roll", "Snow Flakes", and "On The Spot". Also includes the previously unissued "Snow Flakes". CD

CameoFeel Me ... CD
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A great 80s groove from Cameo – but one that's still done in the group's best early funk ensemble mode! There's maybe a bit more emphasis on the basslines and keyboards than before, but the sound of the music is still wonderfully full and spontaneous – very much in keeping with the warmly collaborative look of the group on the cover, who really sound like they're having a hell of a lot of fun making the record! The rhythms have a razor-sharpness that just about nobody else can touch – and there's all these cool little instrumental flourishes that sneak into the mix and really keep things interesting – odd sounds on familiar instruments, moogy moments on keyboards, and even some vocal inflections that come as a nice surprise. There's two nice mellow cuts – "Feel Me" and "Is This The Way", which have a sweetly compressed harmony sound on the lyrics – and funky numbers include "Better Days", "Keep It Hot", "Roller Skates", and "Is This The Way".

✨✧ CCSWhole Lotta Love (aka CCS) ... LP
CBS, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
Proof that blues rock can be turned towards a useful end – and a landmark album from one of the greatest Brit groups of the post-beat era! CCS (Collective Consciousness Society) were more of a studio project than anything else – but their first few records sparkled with a groove and energy level that surpassed most other work going at the time – thanks to large backings from arranger Johnny Cameron, of Brit Easy and soundtrack fame – working here with UK bluesman Alexis Korner in a format that mixed big funky backings with Korner's down-home blues rock! The Cameron touches really help get away from any blues cliches of the genre – and the inclusion of jazz players like Harry Beckett, Henry Lowther, Kenny Wheeler, and Ray Warleigh makes for a really hip approach to instrumentation that goes way beyond simple studio support. Most tracks are instrumental, but the set does include some vocals – and the group scored a standout hit with the album's cover of "Whole Lotta Love", and followed up with other covers that include "Satisfaction", "Living In the Past", "Wade In The Water", and "Bom Bom". Also includes the original tracks "Waiting Song", "Dos Cantos", and "Lookin For Fun". LP, Vinyl record album

Acid Jazz (UK), 2011. Used ... $4.99
Groovy fun from Tony Christie – brassy, punchy and endearing 60s style pomp from a legendary figure who's back in his comfort zone! In some ways, it sounds like it could have made in '67, but with something of a post millennial glow that doesn't detract one ounce of the old school charm. It's really about the charm, and at 67-years-old, Tony still has that in full glory. Titles include "Now's The Time!", "Money Spider", "7 Hills" feat Roisin Murphy, "Nobody In The World", "Steal The Sun", "Longoing For You Baby", "Get Christie", "Too Much Of The Sun", "Key Of You", "I Thank You", "Something Better".

We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off!

Miles DavisWater Babies ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the studio – hence the cover, which attempts to contemporanize the record – and the music is very much in the dark moods and sharp tones of Filles De Kilimanjaro, and features a somewhat similar group! The core quintet of Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums handles the first half of the set – but the group's then expanded to include Chick Corea on electric piano along with Herbie on keys – and Ron Carter steps out so that Dave Holland can bring some more modern tones to the bass. Tracks are all somewhat long, and titles include "Capricorn", "Water Babies", "Sweet Pea", and "Two Faced". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Desmond with Jim HallEasy Living ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good ... $24.99
Paul Desmond doesn't get any better than this – blowing his icy cool alto next to warm guitar lines from the mighty Jim Hall – a classic RCA Records pairing in jazz, heard to great effect on this classic album! There's a slight bossa groove to some of the rhythms, which is great for Desmond's sound – and the backing is also free of piano, so the guitar and alto hang together wonderfully by themselves – suspended in space, dipping and turning around each other beautifully! The pair get some very light rhythmic accompaniment from Connie Kay on drums, and either Percy Heath or Gene Wright on bass – on titles that include "That Old Feeling", "Easy Living", "Blues For Fun", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "When Joanna Loved Me".

Warner, 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y-eah, this is one of best art rock albums of all time – the Eno produced full length debut of Devo – the caustic, sarcastic and fun soundtrack to society's devolution! There's nothing we don't love about Devo at this point, from their unprecedented use of multimedia, to the hard to pull off fusion of sneering social and pop culture satire with good humored fun, and that's just the conceptual stuff. The songs are original and inimitably great, too, with those squeeling synth punk dynamics. Tracks include (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (best rock cover ever?) "Jocko Homo", "Mongoloid", "Uncontrollable Urge", "Space Junk", "Come Back Jonee", "Sloppy (I Saw My Baby Gettin')" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

DionDion ... LP
Laurie, 1968. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A key later album from Dion – and a set that shows a newly maturing style in his music! The album was something of a follow-up to Dion's huge single "Abraham Martin & John" – the bittersweet track that was a surprise late 60s hit for the singer – and which allowed him to explore much more introspective space on this album. The style is extremely folksy throughout – with a lot of acoustic guitar next to Dion's vocals, which are themselves often recorded with a slightly echoey, almost watery quality. There's definitely echoes here of Tim Buckley and Tim Hardin, but the record's got its own soul as well – thanks to a newly fragile quality in Dion's voice. Titles include "Abraham Martin & John", "Sisters Of Mercy", "Both Sides Now", "Sun Fun Song", "He Looks A Lot Like Me", "The Dolphins", and "You Better Watch Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

George DukeThief In The Night ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Warmly soulful work from George Duke – a record that's got a relatively lean feel overall, one that mostly has Duke's vocals and keyboards dancing nicely on top of some catchy 80s rhythms! There's a relatively electric feel to the set – but one that's almost more on the percussion than the keyboards, making a bit of a shift from some of Duke's earlier years – although still head and shoulders above most of the younger fusion/soul artists that sprang up in his wake. Duke plays Fender Rhodes, acoustic piano, moog, and more – and most tracks feature guitar work from Paul Jackson Jr. Titles include "Why", "Jam", "Love Mission", "Thief In The Night", "I Surrender", "We're Supposed To Have Fun", and "Remembering The Sixties".

Electric Peanut Butter CompanyElectric Peanut Butter Company – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol 1 ... CD
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
Sweet and salty psych-soul-rock-funk from Adrian Quesada and Shawn Lee, working together as The Electric Peanut Butter Company! They're a company of just 2, handling every aspect themselves, but if you if ever heard anything by either party, you know this is going to have a huge sound. Lots of fuzzed out psych funk touches on this one – a mix of heady instrumentals and some fun vocal numbers. Shawn handles the singing, and the duo are both multi-instrumentalists and leftfield funk geniuses – managing to work with myriad influences without sounding exactly like anyone but themselves. The drums, guitars and keyboards are masterful here, but there's a lot of cool instrumental and production touches throughout. Vol 1 is actually the duo's second album – the first was Vol 2 (naturally!) – and it delivers on the diverse debut, and then some! Includes "Flexi Funk", "Beer Good", "Spread The Jam", "Stealio", "Tennis Elbow", "Mister Pink", "Austin City Limiter", "Go Go Go", "Damn Skippy", "Jenn Wu", "Fat Budda" and more. CD
