✨✧ Lightnin' RodHustlers Convention (Charly pressing) ... CD
Celluloid/Charly (UK), 1974. Used ... $5.99
Fantastic stuff – incredibly hard and incredibly funky, and a masterpiece all the way through! Long before there was any talk of gangster rap, Jalal of the Last Poets recorded this album of gamblin', pimpin', and hard double dealin'. It's a fantastic album-long ride through the dark side of the black underworld, and is the aural equivalent of a blacksploitation flick. Kool & The Gang provided the music – and Jalal tells the whole story throughout, in the same hard rappin' style he used with the Last Poets! The record's an undisputed classic, and includes the sample classic "Sport", plus loads of other righteous funky cuts! CD

✨✧ Leroy HutsonHutson (Charly pressing) ... CD
Curtom, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson! The whole thing's a smooth soul masterpiece beyond compare – a stunning blend of great songwriting, sexy vocals, and buttery production that rank it up there with the best work of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. Leroy's got a voice that's both warm and mellow, yet incredibly honest at the same time – and the songs on the record show a range of colors and emotions that perfectly fit his unique style. Features mellow "Cool Out", the funky "Lucky Fellow", the sweet "All Because Of You", and the sublime cuts "It's Different" and "Can't Stay Away". The whole thing's great – and is one of the crowning achievements of the Chicago soul scene! CD

✨✧ Los Charly's OrchestraRediscovering The Big Apple ... CD
Imagenes (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Los Charly's Orchestra rediscover the Big Apple – although given the group's strong approach to Latin music, it's hard to imagine that they'd ever forget the sound of New York! Yet this time around, there's an added element of Latin Soul in the mix – some touches of late 60s and early 70s Fania and Tico, especially in the way the rhythms and vocals intertwine – the latter of which are often English, with a wonderfully soulful groove! The group's own tracks are mighty nice, and they also serve up their own versions of cuts by Johnny Colon, Bobby Matos, and Cachao – in a killer set list that includes "All I Wanna Do", "My Barrio", "Al Ritmo Del Latin Funk", "Merecumbe", "Rediscovering The Big Apple", "Return To Spanish Harlem", and "Descarga Cachao".

✨✧ Tiny BradshawBreakin' Up The House ... LP
Charly (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the better saxophone talents of the time, which means that some of these numbers are filled with wails, screams, and pops that are right out of an Albert Ayler session! 16 numbers in all, including "Mailman's Sack", "Well Oh Well", "Train Kept A-Rollin", "Breakin Up The House", "Walk That Mess", "Bradshaw Boogie", "Snaggletooth Ruth", "Rippin & Runnin", "Two Dry Bones On The Pantry Shelf" and "One, Two, Three Kick Blues".

Alvin CashWindy City Workout – The Essential Dance Craze Hits & Rarities 1964 to1973 ... CD
Mar V Lus/Charly (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 17.98
The full scope of genius from the legendary Alvin Cash – not just his 60s gritty groovers, but a host of later funk tracks as well – all packaged into a beautiful book-styled package! Cash is one of our favorite Chicago artists ever – a dancer by trade, but a flamboyant personality who always managed to make his way center stage – whether live or in the recording studio! The set begins with early "twine" numbers from Alvin – some romping heavy soul tracks that have a very deep bottom, and a raw sound that's equal part R&B and Chicago soul – definitely tuned towards the dancefloor crowd that was a natural fit for Cash's energy. As the set moves on, it then picks up some wicked late 60s singles for the Toddlin Town label, and also includes some excellent early 70s groovers for Sound Stage Seven – some of Alvin's hardest, heaviest numbers ever. The set features work by Alvin Cash with The Registers, Hundred Dollar Bills, The Crawlers, and Scott Brothers Orchestra – and titles include "Keep On Dancing (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky 69", "Moanin & Groanin", "Doin The Creep", "It's Party Time", "Funky Washing Machine", "Alvin's Doin His Thing", "Funky Street", "Doin The Ali Shuffle", "Whip It On Me", "The Charge", "Boston Monkey", "The Philly Freeze", "Alvin's Boogaloo", "Let's Do Some Good Timing", "The Bump", "Twine Time", "Twine Awhile", "The Barracuda", and "You Shot Me Through The Grease".

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free SoulSir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul ... CD
Charly (UK), 1973. Used ... $15.99
An undisputed funk classic – even back in the days before anyone ever said the phrase "funk classic"! This album must have been deleted the day it came out – because even though it's attained legendary proportions with groovers worldwide, it's always been hard to find – even back in the 70s! But unlike so many other "rare-but-not great" funk albums, this one's a killer – with a hard funky wah wah sound that we'd rank up there with James Brown's best work on Polydor from the early 70s, and which should have made Joe a millionaire, not a lost legend of soul music. The band is sharp as a knife – with hard drums, tight bass, and some simply amazing guitar riffing. But the best part is Joe – as his vocals are hard and emotional, with just the right touches of righteousness to carry off the album's political messages, but not too much as to spoil the party that the band's having in the background! Every single track is a winner, and if we were ever to make a list of the top five funk albums to own, this one would be on it! Titles include "The Way They Do My Life", "I Got So Much Trouble On My Mind", "The Trouble With Trouble", "Give Me Back My Freedom", "Live Like Brothers", and "Find Yourself". CD

Bobby WomackEverything's Gonna Be Alright – The American Singles 1967 to 1976 ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 14.98
A massive package of music from the mighty Bobby Womack – a book-style 2CD set that features every single from Bobby's first decade in soul music – including both a and b-sides of the 45s! Bobby first got his start with a host of important singles for Minit Records – and these kick off the set with that unique blend of southern roots and soaring grooves that made Womack a legend right from the start – and which continues to mature in a really marvelous way as the music goes on. The package features a number of tracks we'd missed before – since we mostly just have Bobby's full length LPs – and the book features track by track details, with information on the singles' releases as well. 50 tracks in all – with titles that include "Somebody Special", "Broadway Walk", "Thank You", "Tried & Convicted", "Let It Hang Out", "Check It Out", "Interlude No 2", "Trust IN Me", "Git It", "Come L'Amore", "Harry Hippie", "Fire & Rain", "The Preacher (parts 1 & 2)", "More Than I Can Stand", "Arkansas State Prison", and "Love The Time Is Now".

Bobby Womack/JJ JohnsonAcross 110th Street ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), 1972. Used ... $7.99
One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of wah-wah guitar, funky keys, and tight riffing by the band – especially on the cuts "Harlem Clavinette", "Hang On in There", and "Harlem Love Theme". Also features "Do It Right" and another vocal version of "Hang On In There", both by Bobby. CD

✨✧ Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

✨✧ Jonny TeupenHarpadelic ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
Electric harp?!?! Don't ask us – we like it! Jonny Teupen was one of the strangest and most wonderful artists to record for the MPS label during their glory days – and his big instrument was a jazz harp, which he often electrified to great result! Sure, Dorothy Ashby had been making jazz inroads on the instrument in the US at about the same time – but Teupen had a cool sound that was a bit sitar, a bit guitar, and a bit "inside the piano" at his wildest moments. This record is maybe his greatest moment ever – and mixes Jonny's harp with vibes from Dave Pike guitar from Volker Kriegel, trumpet from Shake Keane, and drums from Charly Antolini – all solid MPS players who really help ground the sound! Titles include "Blue Tattoo", "I Saw The Sun Going Down", "Love Me", " The Cornflower Girl", "Come Back & Shake Me", and "Harp Revolution". CD

A great mix of Cuban music and diversely danceable, percussive sounds from around the globe – on this excellent entry in the Brownswood label's and producer/tastemaker Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura series! It's amazing stuff, and about as seamless a blend of styles as can be, while still being able to describe it as Soundclash – often with Cuban vocals, percussion and rhythms, with either subtle or fairly bold electronics, depending on the track – contributed by artists from Chile, UK, Germany, Hungary, Holland, South Africa and beyond. Includes "Ellegua" by Kerkstra feat Sexto Sentido, "Para Ti" by Rukaiya Russell feat Sexto Sentido, "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio feat Coki & Reni, "Ritmo Sensorial" by Rukaiya Russell feat Los Niches & Charly Mucha Rima, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra feat Etian Brebaje Man & Sexto Sentido, "Volar En Lo Profundo: by DJ Monokey feat Barbaro and more.

There's not much of a structure to the collection, but the cuts are all mighty nice – a really well-selected batch of numbers that includes "Conversations" by Silhouettes, "Sombre Guitar" by Danser's Inferno, "Claudia" by Panema Leblon, "Autumn Leaves" by Milt Jackson, "Jive Samba" by Jon Hendricks, "Here We Are Falling In Love" by Meta Roos, "Le Coeur Qui Jazze" by France Gall, "Exotica" by Walter Kubiczec, "Uela Uela" by Charly Antonlini, and "Sunshine Superman" by Big Jim Sullivan.

An excellent set of funky jazz tracks from the legendary MPS label! The folks at Crippled Dick have outdone themselves this time – and have even surpassed their previous set of MPS grooves by collecting a totally excellent batch of cuts, most of which haven't ever been reissued before! If you pay attention to jazz funk at all, you'll know that the German-based MPS label is one of the world's best sources for incredible grooves – and the label had a 20 year tradition of mixing musics from many different sources, and for delivering some of the most groundbreaking funk of the 20th century! Titles on this stunning set include "Titty Chickie Fitterbug" by Jasper Van't Hof, "Faces In Reflection 2" by George Duke, "Scratches" by Charly Antolini, "Knock Out" by Dieter Reith, "Miss Maggie" by Rolf Kuhn, "Powerstart" by Roland Kovac, "Baiafrock/Volker" by The New Dave Pike Set, "Volcano's Daughter" by Nelson Riddle, and "Bulgarian Beans" by Rimona Francis.
