AtmosphereYou Can't Imagine The Fun We're Having (10th Anniversary edition – 4LP colored vinyl set) ... LP
Rhymesayers, 2005. New Copy 4LP (reissue)... $39.99 42.98
Atmosphere's hard-hitting, tightly-focused You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having – one of their best records ever – given a richly deserved anniversary edition with the original LP and instrumentals in a 4LP box set! Tracks like the opener "The Arrival", "Panic Attack" (a blistering affront to an over-prescribed populace) and "Bam" hit hard with Ant's gritty soul and rock beats and Slug's busy, in the pocket rhymes, and find these guys working tightly as a singular force with a mesmerizing intensity. Lyrics-wise, this record is a pretty remarkable step up – and a peak effort for Atmosphere and the Rhymesayers label. Other titles include "Watch Out", "Smart Went Crazy", "Musical Chairs", "Angelface", "Get Fly" and "Little Man". The original 2LP record and complete instrumentals – 4LPs and absolutely deserves the lavish anniversary treatment! LP, Vinyl record album
(4LP green & red colored vinyl – with the complete original LP and instrumentals – plus lyrics and download. Limited to 5000 copies.)

Lester Bowie's Brass FantasySerious Fun ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
One of our favorite albums from Lester Bowie's big solo run of the 80s – and a set that has some of the more dynamic energy of his Brass Fantasy group, but maybe also a bit more depth as well! The album's part of a handful that the Art Ensemble Of Chicago did with the DIW label at the time – and the AEOC production maybe gives the record a slightly more serious sound – even though the group still take on material from James Brown, Sade, and EU! Yet there's also two Billie Holiday tributes that are surprisingly powerful, and a stunning version of Roland Kirk's "The Inflated Tear" – with a strong trombone solo from Steve Turre, who worked with Kirk in later years, and always championed his work. The lineup features Bowie, Stanton Davis, EJ Allen, and Gerald Brezel on trumpets; Turre and Frank Lacy on trombones; Vincent Chancey on French horn; and Bob Stewart on tuba – plus drums and percussion from Don Moye, Ken Cruchfield, and Vinnie Johnson. Titles include "Inflated Tear", "Smooth Operator", "Strange Fruit", "Don't Worry Be Happy", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", and "Da Butt". CD

Roman DiazL'O Da Fun Bata ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A very rootsy set of Cuban bata – and a record that almost feels like a vintage session for Folkways than some of the more contemporary music on the Motema label! The album's got a strong Yoruba bend – and features spoken passages between most of the percussive tracks – introducing different deities, who are then supported through highly spiritual performance that mixes chanted vocals with percussion by Roman and his group – with no other instrumentation at all! The notes put both the music and the references in the right sort of cultural perspective – and titles include "Agayu", "Oggun", "Elegua", "Oshun", "Shango", and "Obatala". CD

✨✧ StoogesHave Some Fun – Live At Ungano's ... CD
Rhino Handmade/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
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", and with 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. The source was a reel-to-reel capture by someone in the audience, so the sound is a bit rough – which is of little concern when what we have here is a really important building block in creation of punk rock! Plus, the whole thing also begins with "Going To Ungano's" – street conversation that makes you feel like you're outside, going into the show. CD

✨✧ FarmInnermost Limits Of Pure Fun – A George Greenough Film (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really tripped-out surf soundtrack from the end of the 60s – and a record that shows a huge evolution in the surf genre from the more familiar hits of the earlier part of the decade! The style here is much more open-ended and jamming – a collaborative effort that almost sounds like improvised grooves at times – played on organ, guitar, bass, and drums, all recorded by drummer Dennis Dragon. Denny Aaberg is on guitar and a bit of vocals – and a few numbers have an earthy, down-home feel that's a contrast to the more open-ended jams. Titles include "Snake Charmer", "Crystal Shingles", "Animal", "Wind N Sea", "Crumple Car", "Tobie's Oats", "San Ho Zay", "Ground Shuffle", and "Innerspace". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DaytonHot Fun ... LP
Liberty, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully sweet groover from Dayton – a group that's equal parts modern soul and 80s groove – and outta site all the way! The album's big title hit is a remake of Sly Stone's classic "Hot Fun In The Summertime", done in such a way that it's got a cool skating stepper's groove to it – and set amidst some jazzy riffing and ensemble vocals that are totally great. The rest of the album follows in a similar mode – really bouncy and joyous, with mixed male and female vocals stepping out over a set of lean, mean 80s groovers that should have been huge! Tracks include "Hot Fun", "Patiently", "We Can't Miss", "Meet The Man", "Movin Up", and "Gunch". LP, Vinyl record album

Rev-Ola (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
Pretty, sweeping, grandly orchestrated yet immediate and instantly gratifying psych tinged girl pop from the late 60s – the first album from beautiful, Netherlands bred singer Boujoura – wonderful stuff smartly produced to have a huge, yet impossibly bright and fun sound! George Kooymans of Golden Earring(s) co-wrote a bunch of the songs, and the production is a mix of large scale grandeur with raw drums and punchy brass and strings, kinda the best of both worlds! Titles include "I Can't Stop Rambling", "Watch What You Try To Do", "For Baby", "Dream Man", "Mr Magic", "Hampstead Incident", "Where Are You", 'That's How Strong My Love Is" and more. CD

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it 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. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

BT Express1980 ... LP
Roadshow/Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... $5.99
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

CameoCameosis/Feel Me ... CD
Casablanca/Robinsongs (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of killers from Cameo – back to back on a single CD! Cameosis is full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, and keyboards – a totally on-the-money style that vamps, leaps, and jumps with energy throughout. The vocals are great too – bubbling up in the mix almost like another instrument – and the album's got a depth that so many other copycat funk records from the time just couldn't touch. Wonderful throughout – with tracks that include "Shake Your Pants", "Cameosis", "On The One", "We're Goin Out Tonight", and "Please You". Also features a bonus 7" mix of "Shake Your Pants". Feel Me is 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".

Cerrone/Bob SinclarCerrone By Bob Sinclar ... CD
Because (France), 2001. New Copy ... $12.99
25 years of French disco collide as one – as house genius Bob Sinclar remixes the legendary late 70s work of Cerrone! Cerrone's work from the late 70s and early 80s was some of the best club music coming out of Europe at the time – and he virtually pioneered the extended slow-building grooves that would later have such an influence on house music during the 80s. The album features original Cerrone tracks and remixed versions – done by the likes of Sinclar, Liquid People, Modjo, Donray, and Johnny D – all blended together in one superparty of disco grooves, as sparkling and hard driving as Sinclar's own work! Titles include "Music Of Life", "Give Me Love (house mix)", "Supernature", "Roller Coaster", "Cerrone's Paradise", "Assassinat", "Standing In The Rain", "Striptease", and "Kongas Fun". CD

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".

Tico, 1966. Good ... $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".

Posi tone, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Excellent work from pianist Jon Davis – a player with a really wonderful touch on the keys – an attack that comes on strong, but then lays back to let the echo of every single note mean a lot – even when Jon's moving at a mighty nice clip! The style is great – not unfamiliar, maybe a bit like early Steve Kuhn, but very fresh in the hands of Davis – and spun out over a fair bit of original tunes on the set, which further showcase Jon's voice as a writer – and let us know that he's definitely an artist to watch in coming years. The group features Ugonna Okegwo on bass and Jochen Rueckert on drums – and titles include "Jazz Vampire", "Just For Fun", "Las Olas", "Changes Over Time", "Waltz For U", and "It's For Free". CD

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". CD

Stephen DavisLZ 75 – Lost Chronicles Of Led Zeppelin's 1975 American Tour ... Book
Fourth Estate (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
The author of Hammer Of The Gods – which some say is the definitive book on Led Zeppelin – takes a look at the group's famous 1975 tour of America – a time when both Led Zeppelin and arena rock were at the height of their power! Stephen Davis was one of an elite few to travel with the group during the tour – and writes here from his special backstage access – not just to the shows, but the group's trials and travels across the US. The style is relatively personal – Davis isn't out to write a complete history here, just illuminate this famous tour – but that's also what makes it great – as the whole thing's almost got a cinematic presentation of the material. Not the deepest reading you'll ever do, but plenty of fun overall – and the 217 page book also features a fair bit of black and white photos too. Book

An amazing collection of 40s and 50s jazz drawings by Gene Deitch – the complete anthology of his work for legendary jazz magazine Record Changer!

Cat On A Hot Thin Groove includes all of his magazine covers, cartoon panels and other bits from Record Changer – versatile work that ranges from fun, cartoon-y panels of "Jazz Cat" characters, to more elaborate and abstract illustrations.
