FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $4.99
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

✨✧ Four FreshmenVoices In Fun ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Always-great work from The Four Freshmen – a later Capitol album recorded when the group was really hitting their vocal stride! Featuring arrangements by Billy May, the record is well put together, with some extremely inventive arrangements of familiar numbers, plus other odd tunes, of the sort that always made the group's records so great. Titles include "You Make Me Feel So Young", "Aren't You Glad You're You", "Happy Talk", and "Manana". LP, Vinyl record album

HamboneBig Fat Juicy Fun ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $21.99
That's quite a cover on the front – and the record more than lives up to the promise of the photo and the cover – thanks to some funky club grooves from the legendary Tommy Stewart! You might know Tommy for his own rare album – or for his underground work on the Atlanta scene of the late 70s – and here, he really makes for some fresh sounds for the Salsoul label, by bringing in a lot more funk at the bottom than usual for the mostly-disco imprint – at a level that really makes the album a unique set all the way through! Rhythms are at the core – and usually snap along at a level that's full, but super-tight – kind of late blacksploitation funk, with just enough kick for the dancefloor, but no throwaway disco cliches at all. And while there's a lady on the front cover, and a bit of female vocals on the record, the main focus is instrumental – sometimes with a sweet harmonica or bluesy guitar in the lead. Titles include "Hey Music Man", "Hambone", "Win or Lose", "One For Jo Jo", "This Masquerade", and "Big Fat Juicy Fun". CD

XMore Fun In The New World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Real Gone, 1983. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
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". 4 bonus tracks: demo/alternate mixes of "Poor Girl", "True Love Part 2", "Devil Doll", and "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts".

New HorizonsSomething New/Gonna Have Big Fun ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983/1984. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
2 classics from New Horizons – back to back on a single CD! Something New is something great from New Horizons – the group's second album, and even tighter than the first! Roger Troutman had a very big hand in the record, lending the group some very Zapp-ish touches in their grooves – a great blend for the catchy vocals of the group, in ways that even have the mellow cuts bouncing along nicely! The basslines are tight, but never overdone – and the record's got a real sense of class and timing that takes it way past some of the overly-familiar sides of the Troutman universe. Titles include "Your Thing Is Your Thing", "Something New", "Reaching For New Horizons", "I Can't Tell You", "County Line", and "Your Thing (rap)". Gonna Have Big Fun is a bouncy bouncy gem from New Horizons – a set that's got help from Roger and all the Troutman crew, yet somehow manages to step forward strongly with its own voice as well! There's plenty of bass at the bottom of the grooves, but things are never too popping or too-tight – just relaxed, almost mellow at points, with this wonderful flow that works perfectly for the group's hip vocals. The group's got kind of a youthful approach – almost like a harmony group raised in the generation of P-Funk, with that sort of style as their main inspiration – quite different than the approach of the mellower groups of a decade before. Titles include "Big Fun", "Dance Frite", "U Can Do (Watcha Wanna)", "Love To Spend The Night", and "Get Ready Let's Party". CD

Sire/Warner, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Ice T & Body Count's infamous self-titled LP – way more notorious than it should be, and actually a pretty brave move for a rapper circa the early 80s, to roll from a major player in the hardcore solo rap scene – to hardcore punk/hybrid metal! It's fun stuff, seemingly influenced by Suicidal Tendencies (themselves pretty notorious back in the day) – with "Smoked Pork", "Now Sportss", "KKK B**ch", "There Goes The Neighborhood", "Evil Dick", "Body Count Anthem", "Oprah" and more.

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".

Tony ChristieNow's The Time! ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2011. Used ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Miles DavisWater Babies ... CD
Columbia, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
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". CD

Crestline, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 21.99
A glorious tribute to the world of bowling – filled with loads and loads of vintage images – including advertisements, posters, and lots of bowling alley propaganda! We're huge fans of bowling alleys – from the taverns inside, which are often hidden gems – to the well-waxed lanes, which provide hours of fun – to the overall culture of the place, which can stand as an island in both the streams of time and local change! This book gets at all that charm, and more – and offers up some history of the sport and its big rise in post-war America – all with a great style that really lives up to the retro image on the cover. 128 pages, full color, and hardcover.

One of the few albums cut by this oft-overlooked southern soul diva – and one that mixes Muscle Shoals production with some nice uptown touches! Produced by Jerry Williams, Jr., aka Swamp Dogg! While the title comes of a bit flamboyantly, in truth, this record is an honest, personal, and earthy southern soul should-be classic. It's not only a personal triumph for Doris Duke, it's also one of greatest Swamp Dogg-produced records! Includes "I Wish I Could Sleep", "It Sure Was Fun", "He's Everything I Need", "Since I Fell For You", "Let Love Touch Us Now", "Bad Water", and a cool cover of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix".

✨✧ Nina HagenFearless ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good ... $8.99
A strange and ultimately very fun set from Nina Hagen circa '83 – with production by Giorgio Morodor that's clearly geared towards an 80s mainstream club soul sound – and the record turns out to be all the weirder because of it! Nina's vocals are as anti-pop as they come, and Morodor's synthy grooves makes for a strange mix. She trys to vamp it up Blondie style on some tunes, but her punk operatic tendancies and that scary Berlin accented growl are never far behind the attempts at sweetness – and Morodor's shiny, shiny gloss and drum machines are really charming in the context! In hindsight, it was probably pretty naive to think Nina Hagen could pull off a Madonna style hit record – and that makes this one of the more fascinating miscalculations of the early 80s – and worth a listen! Titles include "New York New York", "My Sensation", "Flying Saucers", "I Love Paul", "The Change", "Silent Love", "What It Is" (featuring backing by wee little group of youngsters who call themselves The Red Hot Chili Peppers), "TV Snooze", "Springtime And Paris", "Zarah".

✨✧ Chris HunterChris Hunter ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
A debut solo set from reedman Chris Hunter – a fairly sharp-edged player on the alto saxophone, and one who gives this album a bit more bite than the usual mainstream fusion set from the time! Chris gets lots of strong solos out front – often evoking an older soul-styled mode with his playing, although with a definite 80s spin on the production – maybe with the strength of someone like Eric Leeds, but without the Prince backing that Leeds gets. Backings are relatively stripped-down – and feature strong work by Richard Tee on acoustic piano, which also helps avoid some keyboard fusion cliches – plus Hiram Bullock on guitar, and Don Sebesky on arrangements and production. Titles include "Purple Rain", "Respect", "Georgia On My Mind", "Good Clean Fun", and "I Can't Help It". CD

Roland KirkPre-Rashaan (Kirk's Works/Jaki Byard Experience) ... CD
Prestige, 1961/1968. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Nice 2-in-1 set that reissues 2 hard to find albums by Roland Kirk! Kirk's Work is a strange and tasty album that Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s. The album's also been issued under the title Funk Underneath – but this is the original version. Kirk's tenor, manzello, stritch, and flute sound great next to Brother Jack's organ, and his sense of humor matches that of the great keyboardist. They swing hard, and have a lot of fun, especially on tracks like "Kirk's Work", "Three for Dizzy", and "Doin' the Sixty-Eight". The second album was cut under Jaki Byard's name – and is an amazing (and often forgotten) quartet session that brings together the enigmatic pianist and the mind-blowing multi-reed player. Kirk and Byard had played together previously, most notably on some of Kirk's Mercury recordings, and they fit together perfectly in this mad session of off-kilter jazz. The two of them are backed by Alan Dawson on drums and Richard Davis on bass, and the group's as tight as a drum. Titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "Evidence", "Memories Of You", and "Hazy Eve". CD

Great grooves from The Kongas – a French disco group who worked heavily with the great Cerrone, but who also had a much rootsier feel overall! The Kongas style mixes in long percussion lines with plenty of keyboards – all in an extended clubby groove that has all the French disco appeal of Cerrone, but which also brings in some Salsoul touches as well! This sweet 2LP set appears to include both of the group's key albums – and titles include the side-long "Africanism/Gimme Some Lovin" medley – plus "Kongas Fun", "Dr Doo Dah", "Rocket In The Pocket", "Anikana O", "Tattoo Woman", and "Why Can't We Live Together".

Solid 80s grooving from Kool & The Gang – a group who inspired so many others in the early 80s soul generation, but who could still do it better than most of the rest! The style here is tight and smooth, but never too slick – and Deodato's giving the group some really great production for the album – helping them to focus their energy and soar soulfully, but without resorting to any stiff gimmicks or cliches! There's a great groove running through most of the numbers here – a confident quality that's never too commercial, and which bubbles along nicely throughout. Titles include "Street Kids", "Big Fun", "As One", "Hi De Hi Hi De Ho", "Let's Go Dancin", and "Pretty Baby". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "Big Fun (single)", "Let's Go Dancin (single)", "Street Kids (single)", "Hi De Hi Hi De Ho (single)", "Let's Go Dancin (12" promo rmx)", and "Street Kids (12" dance rmx)".

Stuttering, thumping and unpredictable beats, bumps, and beeps from the Koushik – a wild ride on two sides, from sparse atmospherics to full on beathead freak funk! The record features 30 brief untitled "beeps", but what we're loving about it his how approachable and flat out fun it is – it has spacey out-mospherics to spare, but it's almost always done over a headnodding beat – in varying tempos.

✨✧ Guy LafitteBlues In Summertime/Sugar & Spice ... CD
BMG (France), 1970/1972. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
2 70s killers from French tenor genius Guy Lafitte – a hell of a player from the postwar years, but one who was virtually unknown in the US! On Blues In Summertime, Lafitte's got a really classic sound on his horn – clearly inspired by Ben Webster and Lester Young, but handled with phrasing that's freshly all his own – and which has surprising modern touches where you'd least expect them – almost in the manner of Coleman Hawkins' great early 60s recordings. This set's got Lafitte working with a small combo that includes Art Taylor on drums, Henri Texier on bass, and Raymond Fol on piano – and the group's expanded on a few numbers by a larger horn section – in a mode that somehow seems to make Lafitte open up even more. Titles include "Siete", "Tili Fun", "Milligan Place", "Lumberjack", and "La Nuit Des Lapins Blemes". Sugar & Spice features Lafitte blowing wonderfully laidback solos in a group that features a 4-piece trombone section on about half the album, plus some more stripped-down settings with Raymond Fol on piano. Given the date and the title, the set should come across as hokey, but for some reason it doesn't – and that's largely because Lafitte's tenor work is so compelling – like a voice from the past that you think you've heard before, but somehow missed. Great stuff all around – and with tracks that include "Teemoo", "Chloe", "Passion Flower", "Sugar & Spice", and "A Lollipop For Chris". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Isn't It Romantic" and "Do Nothing Until You Hear From Me". CD
