✨✧ Syl JohnsonMs Fine Brown Frame ... LP
Erect/Boardwalk, 1982. Sealed ... $7.99
A bit of a comeback for Chicago soul legend Syl Johnson – a set initially recorded for the smaller indie Erect, but picked up for bigger distribution by Boardwalk thanks to a catchy title hit! The sound here is quite different from Syl's Twinight or Hi Records years – still a bit bluesy overall, but also going for a much tighter boogie-based groove – in keeping with the sound of Erect at the time. Johnson's vocals still retain that nice kind of pinch that shows his down home roots, but the instrumentation is much tighter than before – often in an electric mode that's a bit like Malaco in the 80s, only slicker. Syl produced the record with General Crook – and titles include the nice groover "Ms Fine Brown Frame", plus "Sweet Thing", "You Don't Have To Go", "It Ain't Easy", "Groove Me", and "Keep On Loving Me".

David MatthewsShoogie Wanna Boogie ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice! Matthews was the mainman behind the legendary funk group The Grodeck Whipperjenny, and a key arranger in James Brown's sound of the Polydor years – but by this time, he moved into smoother club-type jazz, of the sort he'd penned for Idris Muhammad and other artists on the Kudu label. However, Matthews' always had a talent for the funky groove – and even these otherwise pop disco numbers shine with a musical intensity that surprises us – especially at moments like the funky drumbreak on "You Keep Me Hanging On", the freaky moog on "Shoogie Wanna Boogie", the funky bass solo on "California Dreaming", and the excellent keyboard work on "Gotta Be Where You Are".

Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Classic middle period work from drummer Idris Muhammad – a set recorded after his initial run of lean funk recordings for the jazz scene – with a bit more soul in the mix, and definitely a bit of boogie in the groove! Arrangements are by David Matthews – the maestro of the soul-styled charts who first honed his craft with James Brown – and the approach here is tight jazz funk, with both a good ear for the clubs, and some of the more sophisticated styles that the CTI/Kudu crowd could appreciate! There's some vocals at times – sung by Frank Floyd, Ray Simpson, and others – but the instrumental component of the album definitely takes the lead - with percussion by Nicky Marrero alongside Muhammad's tight drums – plus Hiram Bullock on guitar, Cliff Carter on keyboards, David Friedman on vibes, and solos from Ray Davis on alto and Jeremy Steig on flute. Titles include "One With A Star", "Boogie To The Top", "Bread", and "Stick It In Your Face". CD

✨✧ VariousLet's Do The Boogaloo ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
A set that really gets at the full spectrum of the boogaloo groove – not just the Spanish Harlem sounds of the Latin Soul generation – but also the deeper roots of the style from across the USA! "Boogaloo" is a term that most folks use to refer to that New York uptown fusion of Latin rhythms and soulful vocals – and while the NYC styles were key to its fame, the music also burst forth from lots of points west, too – and came together in a flurry of fast rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and hard-driving vocals that made for a completely infectious blend! This package is a fantastic testament to that mad musical moment – and is overflowing with a selection of gems that goes way past the obvious – not the Fania Records catalog that usually shows up on other boogaloo releases, but a huge batch of tracks from small labels and indie singles too. Titles include "Skate Boogaloo & Karate Too" by Lee Harris, "Block Party" by Jimmy Castor, "Boogaloo #3" by Roy Lee Johnson, "Do The Boo-Ga-Loo (part 1)" by Tom & Jerroo, "Playing It Cool" by Hector Rivera, "Ready Steady Go" by Prince & Princess, "Bar Kays Boogaloo" by The Bar-Kays, "What I Feel" by Richie & The PS 54 School Yard, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "Bugalu" by Charlie Palmieri, "Boogaloo (part 1)" by The Bob & Earl Band, "Me & You Doing The Boogaloo" by Lou Courtney, "Boogaloo Zoo" by Shirley Butler, "Bugaloo Party" by Harold & Connie, "Boogaloo Investigator" by The Exotics, "Funky Funky Boogalo" by Jimmy Brown, and "Let's Do The Funky Boogaloo (part 1)" by Barry Jones.

✨✧ Miguel De Deus/Boogaloo ComboBlack Soul Brothers/Hot Pants Roads ... 7-inch
Odeon/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer funky soul from Brazil! "Black Soul Brothers" begins with this massive break, and an "uhhhh" exclamation that would have made Syl Johnson proud – all before the tune then rolls into these heavy horns and a sweet female chorus singing the lyric! "Hot Pants Road" is a wicked remake of the James Brown classic – maybe even funkier than the original! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddie Cano & His QuintetBrought Back Live From PJ's ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning stuff – and one of the best-ever Latin soul albums of all time! Despite the fact that Eddie Cano's earlier albums are more in a Latin easy mode, this late 60's side for Dunhill is totally smoking – and probably his greatest album ever! Forgive the superlatives, but we're totally serious on this one – as the set's a firey batch of Latin instrumentals, with a slammin' boogaloo groove all the way through – filled with mad percussion, jazzy piano riffs, and a non-stop groove that's totally great. The set was recorded live at PJ's nightclub, and it's a non-stop Latin Soul party that includes massive originals like "Slip Slip", "Brown & Blue", "Miro Como Es", and "Don't Ever Change" – plus smoking covers of "El Pito" and "Louie Louie". The set screams with excitement, and is as great as the album is rare! LP, Vinyl record album

Les ParisiennesL'Integrale 1964 to 1969 (3CD) ... CD
Philips/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99 29.99
The complete work of Les Parisiennes – a lovely female French pop group from the 60s – supervised by pianist Claude Bolling! The 3CD package brings together all the quartet's music for Philips Records in the mid 60s – a surprisingly big batch of recordings, given that most of them were done in the space of four short years – and presented here with an equally big range of styles to match! Some of the tunes are done in that older-styled, jazz boogie mode that Bolling used in his own instrumental work – but others are sweeter, lighter, and show echoes of the other pop modes going down in Paris during the 60s. The group's an under-discovered gem from these key French pop years – and the 71 track package features titles that include "Je Te Desteste", "Ce Soir A St Tropez", "Les Parisiennes", "File Le Temps", "Il Flotte", "Paris Je T'Aime D'Amor", "Theme De Borsalino", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Boom Band A Bang", "Jimmy Brown", "Les Zozos", "Le Tunnel Sous La Manche", "Les Frites", "La Salade", "Hans", "Mickey Tintin Et Spirou", and "Dans La Poche Du Kangourou".

Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... CD
Blue Note (UK), 1968. Used ... $15.99
A really great later Blue Note session from Stanley Turrentine – a small combo set that's almost a return to the format of earlier years! The group's a strong one – and features Shirley Scott on organ, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums – playing in a style that's subtler and more laidback than his work with Lou Donaldson, but which still has a nice funk undercurrent. Stan's horn is in wonderful form on the record – really taking advantage of the longer tracks to open up with a mellow and exploratory tone – and the team of Scott and Ponder especially sounds great next to each other on the album. Tracks include "Boogaloo", "Buster Brown", and "Common Touch". CD also features a bonus 11 minute version of Carolyn Franklin's fiesty cut "Ain't No Way"! CD

VariousAll That Disco 100 (6CD set) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $48.99
100 disco and dance tracks, all in a mighty nice package – and a set that's maybe got as much funky soul and upbeat grooves as it does more mainstream work from the clubs! The package goes past the obvious late 70s disco years – and begins with some earlier soul from the 70s, then even moves into some big 80s dancefloor tracks as well – the kind of delightful pop numbers that seem to be getting a lot more play from the younger generation who didn't live through the music the first time around! Titles include "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Philly Devotions, "The Bump" by The Commodores, "Summer Place 76" by Percy Faith, "Shining Star" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Lady Marmalade" by Labelle, "Dazz" by Brick, "Sky High" by Jigsaw, "Yes Sir I Can Boogie" by Baccara, "Boogie Nights" by GQ, "This Is It" by Melba Moore, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Rockin Soul" by Hues Corporation, "Disco Inferno" by Trammps, "The Boss" by Diana Ross, "Super Freak" by Rick James, "Lovely One" by The Jacksons, "Paradise" by Change, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Best Of My Love" by The Emotions, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Boys Town Gang, "Le Freak" by Chic, "I'm In The Mood For Dancing" by The Nolas, "Hello Mr Monkey" by Arabesque, "DJ In My Life" by Annie, "I Like Chopin" by Gazebo, "Wanted" by The Dooleys, "I Was Made For Lovin You" by Kiss, "Dschingis Khan" by Genghis Khan, "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister, "Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams, "Living In America" by James Brown, "Digging Your Scene" by The Blow Monkeys, "Conga" by Miami Sound Machine, "Hold Me Now" by Thompson Twins, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Take On Me" by A-Ha, "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, "Respectable" by Mel & Kim, "Toy Toy" by Sinitta, "Two Of Hearts" by Stacey Q, "Venus" by Bananarama, "Eat You Up" by Angie Gold, "You Spin Me Round" by Dead Or Alive, "Point Of No Return" by Expose, "People Hold On" by Lisa Stansfield, "Give Me UP" by Michael Fortunati, and "Cha Cha Cha" by Finzy Kontini.

VariousDa Chee Chee Chee ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $24.99
The title here is a reference to a special drum fill used by the legendary Bernard Purdie – which you'll hear to great effect on all the classic cuts brought together on this set! Almost all the tracks here are from the 70s – although there's a few more contemporary funk tracks too – and in addition to a fantastic groove, they all share that special Purdie approach to rhythm that's complicated, but always right on the money – performed here by Bernard himself, and a few other drummers who definitely get things right! The front cover may not be much to look at, but the inside notes have reproductions of the original album covers – and timings that show you when "da chee chee chee" appears on each track. Titles include "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Eastern Market" by Yusef Lateef, "Boogaloo Joe" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Well Runs Dry" by Family Circle, "The Preacher" by Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro, "Made For Pleasure" by New Mastersounds, "No More City No More Country" by 100% Pure Poison, "Hunk Of Heaven" by Lemuria, "Never Did I Stop Loving You" by Alice Clark, "Baby Don't Do This To Me" by Timeless Legend, "Let The Play Begin" by Jackie Lomax, "Your Love Was Good For Me" by James Brown, "Brief Encounter" by Brief Encounter, "Simplify" by Omar, and "Spread Love" by Harris & Orr.

VariousNew York Sound – From The East Coast To The Future ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Seminal club tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – a host of killer singles from the Spring, Vanguard, and Posse labels – all in a fantastic blend of boogie, disco, electro, and soul! The work here is easily some of the most sophisticated to come out of the east coast club scene at the time – a real return to indie genius after disco broke heavily in the mainstream, almost a reinvention of the groove with a host of new elements! Some of these tunes will be familiar, but they're presented here in their full extended versions next to others that have been un-reissued for years – making the set an essential batch of tunes that really gets at the best sound of New York from these years! 10 long tracks in all – including "Over Like A Fat Rat" by Fonda Rae, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Rainbow Brown, "Money (Dollar Bill Y'All)" by Jimmy Spicer, "Charley Says (Roller Boogie Baby)" by King Tim III, "Wired For Games" by C-Bank, "Rockin It" by MC Flex & The FBI Crew, "Electric Kingdom" by Twilight 22, "Is This The Future" by Fatback, "Love Hangover" by Players Association, and "You Keep On Making Me Hot" by Busta Jones.

Chuck Brown & The Soul SearchersFunk Express ... LP
Source, 1980. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Post-We The People, post-"Ashley's Roachclip", but pre-Go Go, very much in the vein of the great Bustin' Loose album. This LP has Chuck and the Soul Searchers produced by Wayne Henderson, with the same sort of jazzy funk style that he was doing with a lot of mid 70s bands at Fantasy records. The LP's got a lot of mid-tempo funk tracks with a rolling groove, including "Sticks & Stones", "Come On & Boogie", "In The Pocket", and more. And of course, Henderson made them record his classic "Keep That Same Old Feeling", as he made all groups do at this time! LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Brown Trio With Ralph MooreMoore Makes 4 ... CD
Concord, 1990. Used ... $1.99
We're not normally great fans of the Ray Brown Trio, but this album's a corker – thanks to some great tenor work by Ralph Moore! Moore's a the height of his powers here – blowing with an easy soulfulness that recalls the classic late 50s work of Hank Mobley. His presence on the set really opens things up – and althoguh Brown's trio is more than fine, and Gene Harris' piano is always a treat, it's really Moore's tenor work that makes this album a gem. Titles are mostly standards, but done with imagination – and titles include "The Champ", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Like Someone In Love", "Quasimoto", "Ralph's Boogie", and "SOS". CD

Key Loc/Big Crown, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Tex-Mex soulsters Sunny & The Sunliners – largely because it's got some really nice funk tracks! The album features a set of all English language tracks – with Sunny Ozuna singing in his best sweet soul style on the ballad tracks, and hitting a raw raw groove on the harder-hitting numbers! One of the highlights of the album is a great instrumental reading of "Soul Power" – done with a nice chunky groove – and other great tracks include sweet harmony readings of "Together" and "Cross My Heart", plus the upbeat tracks "Boogaloo Down Broadway" and "Hip Huggin Minnie".

✨✧ Eddie Vinson/Wynonie Harris/Roy BrownBattle Of The Blues Vol 4 ... LP
King, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
It's a battle of the blues, and everyone's winning – as the set's overflowing with killer cuts from the legendary R&B years of King Records! The tracks are from a time when the label did it better than just about anyone else – melding blues, jazz, and all the raw new styles of the postwar years – into a blend that makes for non-stop gems all the way through! Wynonie Harris delivers the hilarious "Grandma Plays The Numbers", plus "Rock Mr Blues" and "Bring It Back". Roy Brown sings "Old Age Boogie", "Queen Of Diamonds", and "Trouble At Midnight". And Eddie Vinson proves that he had fire back in the old days – on the tracks "Big Mouth Gal", "Lonesome Train", and "Good Bread Alley". LP, Vinyl record album
