✨✧ Brothers JohnsonLight Up The Night ... LP
A&M, 1980. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
More hit magic from the Brothers Johnson – still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and virtually setting up the blueprint for jazzy soul in the 80s! Backings are by an all-star team, and Rod Temperton's helping out Quincy with arrangements – going for that snapping groove approach he worked to best effect with Heatwave. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and The Brothers keep a nice funky undercurrent on the bottom of most tracks. Titles include "Smilin On Ya", "You Make Me Wanna Wiggle", "Light Up The Night", "Stomp", "This Had To Be", and "Closer To The One You Love". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGrasso Brothers Present – We Know How To Boogie ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 26.98
The Grasso Brothers definitely know how to boogie – and they more than prove themselves with a wicked selection of rare tracks from the deepest years of the underground! The set's a killer collection right from the start – pulled from vintage 12" singles, albums, and even some funky 45s – with a groove that begins in the best boogie modes of the indie club scene, then soars to the skies in a range of fresh, creative styles – new variations on funky club modes of the 70s, taken to newer heights in the freedom of the post-disco years. There's some wicked cuts here we never would have discovered otherwise – and titles include "A Better Day" by Sharon Johnson, "Done Been" by Kenny Pierce, "We Know How To Boogie" by Those Good Intentions, "Dance To Freedom" by Sherman Hunter, "Stone Luv" by Roller Disco, "Plastic People (G&D edit)" by Living Color, "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Gospel Seekers, "Love Ain't Just A Physical Thing" by Carol Meriwether, and "Ain't No Doubt About It" by William Barlak.

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... CD
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the best of both worlds – vintage funk from the late 60s and early 70s – brought together in a great collection – and work that's gone onto form the blueprint for contemporary urban sounds as well – which means you'll probably recognize some or part of most of these songs from their use in more contemporary recordings. Nearly every cut's been sampled at least more than once – and titles include "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "Eva" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Take Yo Praise" by Camille Yarbrough, "Thinking Single" by The Counts, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "Ike's Mood" by Isaac Hayes, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene.

Kenny WellingtonFree Spirit ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic album from trumpeter Kenny Wellington – one that shows us that the 70s spirit of artists like Roy Ayers and the Mizell Brothers is alive and well – as long as you know where to look! The record's contemporary, but has a really classic blend of jazz and soul – one that still allows plenty of space for Kenny's soaring solo work, but also has a wonderful focus on sharp rhythms and a righteous overall sound! The balance is no surprise – given that Kenny's got a legacy that goes back to classic work in the groups Central Line, Light Of The World, and Beggar & Co – but this album's way deeper and more powerful than anything Washington gave us back in the day – and features some especially nice work on vocals, by a quartet that's headed up by Augie Johnson, who brings in a vibe that's similar to his music with Side Effect and the LA Boppers. The whole thing's wonderful – righter than most folks sound when they go for a groove like this – and titles include "Heading Home", "Dreaming Of Futures Bright", "Fat Cherry", "Kings For A Day Masters Of The Night", "You Can Run", "E3 Symphony", and "Miles 2 Go".

VariousBest Of Wally O Productions ... CD
Philly Archives, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Hard Philly soul from the hands of Wally O – aka Wally Osborne, one of the the best independent producers working in Philly during the late 60s. This set of 22 tracks digs through some of Wally's best work – mostly male group sides, done in a mixture of styles that includes uptempo groovers and sweet harmony ballads – and all either issued as rare singles on labels like Toxsan or Womar, or never issued at all, and appearing for the first time on this CD. The harmony tracks are incredible – the kind of late night slow tracks that always send us scrambling for the liner notes to see who's blowing our mind – and overall, the quality of work on this CD matches the best of any of our other sweet soul or harmony classic titles. Tracks include "Dear One", "A Nicer Girl", and "Tears Tell The Story" by The Topics; "I'm So Glad", "Tell Me So", and "I Found True Love" by Herb Johnson & The Impacts; "Kisses & Roses" and "When I'm With You" by The Four Thoughts; "You Can't Have Your Cake" and "I Wish I Knew" by Bobby Holland; "Without You Babe" and "Cold Cold Love" by Jeri & Joe; "Cement Plaster & Gold" by The Natural Soul Brothers; "It Wasn't A Lie" by Topaz; and "My Life Depends On You" by The Passionettes.

VariousBristol Sessions 1927/1928 – The Big Bang Of Country Music (5CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1927/1928. New Copy 5CD & hardcover book ... $151.99 174.98
A seminal moment in country music history – a series of recording sessions in late 20s Tennessee that went onto spawn generations of sounds and styles to come! The "big bang" in the title is very well-placed – as these sessions were a huge success right from the start, and marked the beginning of decades of country music to come – an explosion of records and talent that all came from this one magical moment! The Bristol sessions not only mark the initial recordings of both The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers – but also include a huge amount of other talents from Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and elsewhere – all of whom traveled to the city to participate in the dates, and help ignite the spark of country music. Producer Ralph Peer had an amazing ear for talent and styles – and he pulls together a range of regional modes, and launches them forward with an energy that really helps put these sounds in the spotlight. Other artists include Blind Alfred Reed, Uncle Eck Dunford, BF Shelton, Ernest V Stoneman, Henry Whittier, Johnson Brothers, Blue Ridge Corn Shuckers, Alfred G Kranes, El Watson, Ernest Phipps, and others – and the set features every single surviving recording from these legendary sessions, including alternate takes – along with a heavy 120 page hardcover book that's oversized, features lots of photos and notes on the recordings, plus new essays as well. A big set that's more than worth the price tag – given the historical importance and high quality of the music within! CD

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

VariousDisco Train 3 ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some great tracks from the years beyond Studio 54 – including a few choice import groovers that played big on American dancefloors, the sort of shifting sounds that took over once the second wave of British invasion hit US clubs after the decline of disco – as well as some big crossover pop tracks that continued the groove well into the 80s. The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this third volume features a mix of 30 surprising cuts that include "Light Up The Night" by Brothers Johnson, "Word Up" by Cameo, "She's A Super Lady" by Luther Vandross, "Miss Me Blind" by Culture Club, "Upside Down" by Diana Ross, "Dancing Queen" by Abba, "Now That We Found Love" by Heavy D & The Boyz, "Conga" by Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, "She Talks To Me With Her Body" by The Bar-Kays, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Fascination" by Human League, "Samba De Janeiro" by Bellini, "Mr Saxobeat" by Alexandra Stan, "Telephone Operator" by Pete Shelly, and "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran.

VariousJazz Dispensary – Purple Funk ... LP
Fantasy, 1970s. New Copy ... $22.99 24.98
We're not sure how we feel about the pot-clinic presentation of the package – but there's no denying that the Jazz Dispensary series is a great choice of classic jazz and funk grooves! The material is from a range of different labels that all fall under the Concord/Fantasy umbrella these days – labels like Prestige, Stax, Milestone, Volt, and Fantasy – plus a few sweet cuts from other imprints too – and as a whole, the series is a great vinyl-only presentation of material that was usually reissued only on CD by the Fantasy family back in the 90s, when they finally discovered the funk in their rich catalog from the late 60s and early 70s. Titles on this Purple Funk volume include "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Mucho Chupar" by David Axelrod, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Hihache" by Lafayette Afro Rock Band, "A Gritty Nitty" by The Pazant Brothers, "Kool Is Back" by Funk Inc, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Hump" by Patrice Rushen, "Dear Limmertz (12" mix)" by Azymuth, and "Patch It Up" by Roy Lee Johnson & The Villagers.

Strut (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
Sweet Times, indeed – Strut Records returns for another truly great volume in their Nigeria 70 series – this one covering the highlife, juju and Afro Funk music of Lagos in the 1970s – stellar material that has never been issued outside of Nigeria before now!

Wonderful, wonderful material that stands proudly with the other great entries in the series. Includes "Life" by Moneyman And The Super 5 International, ""Ire" by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Unity In Africa" by Eji Oyewole, "Idegbani" by Zeal Onyia & His Music, "Viva Disco (Instrumental)" by Tunde Mabadu, "E Ma S'Eka" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats, "Ajoyio" by Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & His International Brothers and more.

Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!
