Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandExpansions ... LP
Big Crown, 2021. New Copy ... $18.99 20.99
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band always sound great – but this time around, they feel funkier than before, and maybe a bit more sinister too – a really great change that has us falling in love with the group all over again! There's still plenty of steel drums in the mix – used to craft the ringing sounds that really set the group apart from other funk groups – but this time around, the bass might be the star of the show – as it's got this really strong placement that creates a bad-stepping vibe for just about every track! Other instruments come into play at times – some horns, keyboards, and guitar – but the whole thing really feels like this love affair between the bass and the steel, urged on by some excellent funky work on the regular drums too. Titles include "Space", "Raise It Up", "Getting Nasty", "Blow Your Cover", "Les Fleurs", "Squaring The Circles", "My Jamaican Dub", "Tough Victory", and "Dirt Off Your Shoulder".

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandSerpent's Mouth ... LP
Big Crown, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky genius from a mighty unique group – one who've drunk deep on the classic steel band sounds of the 70s, but who've also refined that groove with a contemporary funk approach too! The group's the brainchild of Bjorn Wagner – who you might know from The Mighty Mocambos – and the sound here is every bit as well-crafted as that combo, but with the difference of steel drums in the mix! The drums provide most of the melodic elements, while the funky backings kick things up nicely – all at a level that's maybe even funkier than some of the best funky steel drum albums of the 70s – especially across the space of the entire album. Titles include "Xxplosive", "Touchdown", "Burn", "Real Hot", "Hoola Hoop", "1 Thing", "Crockett Theme", "Bocas Del Dragon", "Bushfire", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band55 ... LP
Big Crown, 2018. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lean take on the double-length self-titled set from this mighty funky combo – one that brings together a range of great funky 45s, plus a few other hefty nuggets! If you don't know the group, they're totally great – as Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band go back to the funkiest moments of the 70s steel pan scene from the Caribbean – but also have a harder edge that comes from the group's ties to the Mighty Mocambos, and other corners of the deep funk universe! These cuts are funk first, steel drums second – and have a wicked groove that's actually hipper than most of the original steel drum records from back in the day. Titles include "Queen Of Cheeba", "Port Of Spain Hustle", "Tender Trap", "Dog Was A Doughnut", "Beetham Highway Ride", "Pimp", "Bacao Suave", "Jungle Fever", and "Tropical Heat".

VariousCrown Jewels Vol 2 (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Big Crown, 2022. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A heaping helping of jewels from the mighty Big Crown label – an imprint that's become one of the leading outlets for the sorts of sounds we used to know from deep funk outlets like Daptone, Soul Fire, and even Desco! Yet in the time they've been around, Big Crown have also done a lot to push the genre forward, too – really experimenting with different sounds and new production techniques – which get great display here on a nicely varied batch of tracks from the label's run of records in recent years! Titles include "Reasons" by El Michels Affair with Bobby Oroza, "Bye Bye" by Brainstory, "Xxplosive" by Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, "Float Back To You" by Holy Hive, "Grow Forever" by Lizette & Quevin, "Piece Of Me" by Lady Wray, "Murkit Gem" by El Michels with Piya Malik, "Fight" by Liam Bailey, and "Tonight You Might" by Synthia with Lady Wray.

VariousDear Sunny (clear orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Big Crown, 2021. New Copy ... $7.99 22.99
A sweet little tribute to the great Sunny Ozuna – the soulful lead singer of The Sunliners, who were one of the best Texas soul groups back in the 60s! His original tunes virtually invented the concept of brown-eyed soul, and helped bridge communities in the process – and that spirit is definitely holding strong here, in a set of contemporary interpretations of classics cut by Sunny & The Sunliners – all handled in the best Big Crown way! If you know the label, you'll know that they're very tied to sounds of the past – so all the artists here really live up to the spirit of Sunny's music – and show that these overlooked classic cuts are ripe for rediscovery by a whole new generation. Titles include "Smile Now Cry Later" by The Shacks, "Give Me Time" by Liam Bailey, "The One Who's Hurting Is You" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "My Dream" by 79.5, "Runaway" by Brainstory, "Rain Makes Me Blue" by Paul & The Tall Trees, "Talk To Me" by Lizette & Quevin, "Should I Take You Home" by Bobby Orozona, "Get Down" by Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and "If I Could See You Now" by Holy Hive.
