T Neck, 1982. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An excellent single, featuring one of the group's best late tracks! "We Go A Long Way Back" is a smooth modern soul stepper – with a compressed harmony hook that's great, and a warm soul feel that's a lot more 70s sounding than some of the band's other output at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MaxaynBail Out For Fun ... LP
Capricorn, 1974. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Sweet funky sounds from the legendary Maxayn Lewis – a set that was the last in her initial run of the 70s, and maybe the grooviest of the bunch! The keyboards here are more center stage than the guitars of Maxayn's previous records – and they only seem to increase the funky feel of the record, especially as they're folded up with the vocals in this cool flanged-out production style – a mode that almost seems to echo Sly Stone, which might be no surprise – as the blend of funk, soul, and rock in the music definitely owes something to Sly! Yet Maxayn's very much her own woman – singing with full righteous energy on tunes that include some great originals, plus tracks by Buddy Miles and DJ Rogers too. Titles include the great moogy cut "Moonfunk", plus "Bail Out", "Fun", "You Don't Have To Be Lonely", "Trying For Days", and "Life is What You Make It". LP, Vinyl record album

MaxaynMaxayn Reloaded – The Complete Recordings 1972 to 1974 (Maxayn/Mindful/Bail Out For Fun) (3CD set) ... CD
Capricorn/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The legendary music of Maxayn – finally given its due, and presented here in a great 3CD box, with all albums in tiny LP-styled sleeves! First up is Maxayn – the debut album from a funky female talent who deserves to be mentioned in the same territory as Betty Davis and Yvonne Fair! Like both of those artists, Maxayn isn't afraid to use an electric guitar when she wants – which puts her music somewhere in the territory of groups like The Bar-Kays and Black Nasty, and the way they could blend rock influences with funk and soul! No surprise, Maxayn's bandmates here include two members of Buddy Miles' group – who really help keep things deep – providing a massive foundation for the lady's incredible vocals. Titles include covers of the Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Gimme Shelter" – plus the original tunes "Trying For Days", "Jam For Jack", "Song", and "Doing Nothing Nothing Doing". Next up is Mindful – a classic album of funky female soul – and part of the overlooked legacy of the mighty Maxayn Lewis! The set's a wicked blend of funk and rock, served up with help from Buddy Miles' bandmates Andrew Lewis on keyboards and bass, and Marlo Henderson on guitar – an instrument that's played in the same soul-drenched style you'd know from Buddy Miles' albums, which makes for a wonderful blend with the mindblowing vocals of Maxayn! The singer got her start working with Ike Turner – and definitely has the voice to match that legacy – and she's really set free here on material that was years ahead of its time, and which only today is finally getting its due. The album features lots of original tracks – including "Travelin", "The Answer", "Moan to the Music", "Stone Crazy", "Feelin'", and "Good Things" – plus a version of Curtis Mayfield's "Check Out Your Mind". Last up is Bail Out For Fun – a set that was the last in her initial run of the 70s, and maybe the grooviest of the bunch! The keyboards here are more center stage than the guitars of Maxayn's previous records – and they only seem to increase the funky feel of the record, especially as they're folded up with the vocals in this cool flanged-out production style – a mode that almost seems to echo Sly Stone, which might be no surprise – as the blend of funk, soul, and rock in the music definitely owes something to Sly!

Art Pepper with Bill WatrousWest Coast Sessions Vol 4 – Bill Watrous (Funk N Fun – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The cover says Art Pepper, but the record's one of our favorite albums ever cut under the leadership of trombonist Bill Watrous – a set that was part of a Japanese-only series that brought together some of the best players on the west coast scene at the end of the 70s! Watrous is maybe not as well-associated with the older LA jazz world as some of his associates on the set – who include the great Art Pepper on alto sax and Russ Freeman on piano – both of whom really open up in compelling ways next to Bill's trombone – especially Pepper, as he often wasn't recording with such a horn on his own albums of the time. The rest of the combo features Bob Magnusson on bass and Carl Burnett on drums – and the easygoing vibe of the record really makes for some well-shaped, well-blown notes from Watrous. Titles include "Funny Blues", "P Town", "For Art's Sake", "Begin The Beguine", "Angel Eyes", and "Just Friends". CD also features two bonus alternate takes! CD

Billy TaylorOne For Fun ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
It might not be the frolic that the title implies, but that's a plus – because this a straight-up solid early album from Taylor – recorded in tight trio format, with that no-nonsense soulful approach that made him a star player from the start! The group features the great (and underrated) Earl May on bass and Kenny Dennis on drums – both of whom help Taylor work some simple magic that flowers wonderfully as the album moves on. There's a tight, sharp, in the pocket groove here that makes Taylor a key precursor for other piano talents to come in the 60s – and titles include "When Lights Are Low", "At Long Last Love", "Poinciana", "Blue Moon", "One For Fun", and "A Little Southside Soul".

XMore Fun In The New World ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1983. Used ... $2.99
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts", perfectly encapsulating the fear and loathing brought about by the ridiculous politics that infected the entire decade. The album is very much a sequel to the amazing Under The Big Black Sun, full of razor pop anthems, Billy Zoom's punkabilly guitar acrobatics, and amazing depth thanks to John and Exene's sensitive and perceptive song writing. Awesome! Other tracks include "True Love", "We're Having Much More Fun", "Poor Girl", "Make The Music Go Bang", "Devil Doll", "Painting The Town Blue", "Hot House", "Drunk In My Past", "I See Red", and "True Love Part 2". CD

OT SykesFirst Love ... LP
Fun City/Everland (Austria), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
The only album we've ever seen from soul singer OT Sykes – and a set that's maybe got a greater depth than you'd guess from his image on the cover! The music is a mix of mellow numbers and 80s boogie grooves – but the presentation here is rich, but without having the too-polished mode of major label soul – maybe somewhere in Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson territory, where Sykes can let the tunes flow in just the right sort of balance between warmer jazz and soul! The keyboards really sound great on the mellow steppers – which are our favorite numbers here – but even the groovers are way more than throwaway dance tracks – and have a positive vibe that's mighty nice. Arrangements are by Wayne Douglas Jr – who also had a hand in writing all the tracks on the album – and titles include "Loneliness Inside Of Me", "Come Be My Lady", "Licensed To Love", "Something's Burning", "You Bring Out The Best In Me", "Stone Crush On You", and "Can't Get Enough Of Your Lovin".

Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination! As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Don't know much about the group – save for the fact that George Cables is on keyboards (and sounds pretty darn sweet too!) – but the sound is a nice one, a blend of smooth jazz and R&B tinged fusion that's served up with a honest indie style. There's certainly a bit of Caribbean influence to the set, but the overall approach is more in a sweet soulful jazz mode, and the set has some nice gently funky groovers that sparkle with a warm fusiony sound. Titles include "A Vegas Kind Of Guy", "Dolahin", "Phantom Of The Islands", "Havin Some Fun Now", and "Jungle John". LP, Vinyl record album

The best of the post-Elephunk mainstream conquering era records by the Black Eyed Peas – comfortably balancing bright dance pop and hip hop as strongly as ever! The career arc of the BEPs is as unlikely as anything in modern popular music, from the indie soul inspired alternative rap early on to the fun mainstream figureheads at this point, and this is probably their peak on the side of it. Includes "Boom Boom Pow", "Rock That Body", "Meet Me Halfway", "Imma Be", "I Gotta Feeling", "Missing You", "Ring-A-Ling", "Party All The Time", "Now Generation", "One Tribe", "Rockin' To The Beat" and more.

BT Express1980 ... LP
Roadshow/Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the greatest albums ever from BT Express – tighter, smoother, and classier than the group's early funky disco sessions – and with a cosmic sound that shows them really growing at the time! The sound here steps off from both the group's own horn-heavy disco sides of the 70s, and from the more righteous ensemble funk work of the Earth Wind & Fire generation – and there's also a nice undercurrent of the snapping midtempo rhythms that would show up even later in the early 80s indie club scene. Funk is still very much a part of the BT Express sound – and even when coming together like an all-pro outfit, the group are still hitting hard on the rhythms and well-crafted guitar parts. A wonderful record throughout – the kind of late session that could easily be overlooked, but which represents some of the group's best work! Titles include "Takin' Off", "Does It Feel Good", "Closer", "Better Late Than Never", and "Have Some Fun". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CameoFeel Me ... LP

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".

The film's got a nitty-gritty "couples" take from the times – and the music backs that up with some great instrumentation in a jamming funky jazz mode that's also topped off by some trippier touches, and even a few bossa moments! There's a feel overall that's almost a bit like a Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – and side two features some really wonderful bits that have vocal passages interwoven with music – in a groovy as groovy can be way that we really love.

Johnny first album collaboration with his soon-to-be wife June Carter, and it's a nice one! Carryin' On has it's share of sweet, lovely moments shared by the two, but also has a lot more cool 60s oddball touches than one would expect. The couple cover Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and two Ray Charles tunes, "I Got A Woman" and "What I Say". All three sound pretty strange coming out of hard-nosed Johnny, and prove to be quite fun and endearing, and very indicative of the freedom he had at Columbia to do whatever the heck he wanted. Other tracks include "Shantytown", "Pack Up Your Sorrows", "Jackson", "What A Good Thing We Had", and "No, No, No". Includes two bonus tracks from the sessions, and new liner notes by old pal Carl Perkins. CD

Chairmen Of The BoardSkin I'm In (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Probably the rarest of all albums by The Chairmen Of The Board – and also the last! The album was cut after the band re-formed briefly, and it's got a fuzzed-out heavy soul sound that's quite different from some of the group's earlier work. There's heavy guitar on many tracks – riffing away in a psychedelic mode that dominates most tracks, but which almost buries the group's vocals. The album's a great one if you dig the funk side of the Chairmen – and at times, it almost reminds us of The Politicians, who were kind of labelmates of the group. Includes the excellent two-part funk track "Life & Death" – plus "Love At First Sight", "Everybody Party All Night", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Finder's Keepers", "Skin I'm In", and "White Rose (Freedom Flower)". Lots of bonus tracks too – including "Finders Keepers (inst)", "Someone Just Like You", "Come On In & Dance", and "You've Got Extra Added Power In Your Love". CD

✨✧ Stanley ClarkeStanley Clarke – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
Stanley Clarke's a bassist who first got his start in the headier side of the jazz spectrum in the 70s – but by the second half of that decade, he'd transformed into something else completely – a fantastic musician who could effortlessly reach across soul, funk, and fusion – combining all the best elements into an incredible sound that was all his own! Clarke's part of a generation that might include artists like Norman Connors, George Duke, and Mtume – all artists who might have been straighter jazz had they worked in the 60s, but who really flowered in the new freedoms of the 70s – as they hit superstardom with music like this. Duke and Clarke often collaborated – and you'll hear a good deal of that work on this set – which also includes work with Howard Hewett, Herbie Hancock, and Fuse One – plus lots of Stanley Clarke solo tracks too. 2CD set features 32 tracks in all – and titles include "Concerto For Jazz Rock Orchestra", "Journey To Love", "Jamaican Boy", "Modern Man", "More Hot Fun", "The Dancer", "Silly Putty", "Heroes", "Straight To The Top", "Heaven Sent You", "We Supply", "Grand Prix", "Mothership Connection", "Funny How Time Flies", "Hideaway", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", "What If I Should Fall In Love", "Time Exposure", "Sweet Baby", "Wild Dog", "Rocks Pebbles & Sand", and "Hot Fun".

Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! 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! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

✨✧ Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push".

Davis is at the top of her form here – bad-stepping amidst the heavy drums and freaked-out guitars that easily made her one of the funkiest folks working in the 70s – an artist who was definitely very much into her own bag, and who's only finally getting her due all these many years later! In a way, the groove is even leaner than before – especially the drums, which are turbocharged with energy, and set a badass vibe for the record throughout – mixing up equal parts of rock, funk, and soul – almost with the genre-busting modes that wouldn't really show up on the New York scene until a number of years later. The whole thing kicks ass – and titles include "Nasty Gal", "Talkin' Trash", "Dedicated To The Press", "FUNK", "Getting Kicked Off Havin Fun", "Shut Off The Light", "This Is It", "The Lone Ranger", and "Feelins". Great new pressing of the classic – with a 32 page booklet that includes liner notes, lyrics, and lots of cool photos! CD

Miles DavisWater Babies ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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
(70s pressing, still in the shrink with hype sticker.)

✨✧ Dengue FeverEscape From Dragon House ... CD
M80 Music, 2005. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Dengue Fever not only Escape From Dragon House on this second album – they also escape any knee-jerk attempts to write them off as a novelty group – here delivering a groovy update of the 60s & 70s Cambodian rock vibe! Dengue Fever may be an LA combo, but they do the fun Cambodian garage sound of earlier decades proud – with sweet, girly vocals and a backdrop of keys, horns and global garage, mod, pop and funk rock sounds with one foot in the retro and the other planted on a modern stage. Titles include "We Were Gonna", "Sni Bong", "Tip My Canoe", "Escape From Dragon House", "Made Of Steam", "Saran Wrap", "Hummingbird" and more. CD

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger ... LP
Checker, 1960. Fair ... $12.99
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring batch of tracks that really cut it up in his classic scratchy guitar mode of the time! Lyrics are great – nearly all originals by Bo himself, with that hip swinging, and hard-wailing approach that was always a lot of fun – and cuts include "Gunslinger", "Diddling", "Cheyenne", "Cadillac", and "Doing The Craw-Daddy". LP, Vinyl record album
(FAIR CONDITION. Black label Checker pressing with deep groove. Cover has heavy wear, with fully split top & bottom seams)

Willie DixonCatalyst ... LP
Ovation, 1973. Very Good ... $14.99
Early 70s set by the legendary Willie Dixon – recorded in Chicago with stellar backing by Lafayette Leake, Buster Benton, Mighty Joe Young, Phil Upchurch, and Louis Satterfield – and true to the album's title, this is kind of a catalyst for the sound of electric blues in Chicago clubs for years to come! Willie does a lot of his classics like "Wang Dang Doodle", "Bring It On Home", "My Babe", and "When I Make Love" and after all these years, we're coming to love this period a lot more, not only for Willie Dixon, but for the snapshot of the once far more fertile scene. Also includes "God's Gift To Man", "Hoo Doo Doctor", "But It Sure Is Fun", "I Think I Got The Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Quadraphonic pressing. Cover has light wear.)
Also available Catalyst ... LP 18.99
