✨✧ 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

✨✧ Curtis MayfieldCurtis/Live! (Charly pressing) ... CD
Charly (UK), 1971. Used ... $5.99
We think this may be his best album ever! Caught live at a small club, with a tight band, Curtis delivers extended, intimate versions of some of his best work, like "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue" and "Stare and Stare". We can't recommend this highly enough. The CD's got a double-length set of tracks, and the whole thing's totally dope and laidback funky! You'll return to this one again and again – we guarantee it!

✨✧ FunkadelicOne Nation Under A Groove (Charly pressing) ... CD
Charly (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
An instant classic the day it was released – and a perfect blending of the group's older freaked-out style with a slick late 70s funk sound that started showing up in the work of many other groups. "One Nation Under A Groove" is a monster cut with a hook that won't quit, and the LP version runs way over 7 minutes long. Other tracks are equally great, and the whole thing's woven together with the same sort of skill as some of the best Parliament albums from the mid 70s. Tracks include "Into You", "Grooveallegiance", and "Cholly". Plus, this CD reissue also includes the bonus cuts from the original 45rpm ep that came with the album – including "Maggot Brain (live)" and "Doodoo Chasers". CD

Earl BosticEarl Bostic Blows A Fuse ... LP
King/Charly (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A killer collection of King recordings that Charly put together to showcase the awesome alto sax sounds of the great Earl Bostic! The sides are from the late 40s through the mid 50s – and include important early work by later giants who include John Coltrane, Larry Bunker, Barney Kessel, Blue Mitchell, and Stanley Turrentine – all of whom got important early exposure in Bostic's group! The tracks include "Night Train", "Mambostic", "Who Snuck The Wine In The Gravy?", "What! No Pearls", "Seven Steps", "Moonglow", and "Special Delivery Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album

Alvin CashWindy City Workout – The Essential Dance Craze Hits & Rarities 1964 to 1973 ... CD
Mar V Lus/Charly (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
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".

Ohio PlayersTrespassin' ... CD
Charly (UK), 1968/1969. Used ... $5.99
The best collection we've ever seen of the Ohio Players' earliest recordings – sides originally done in 1968 and 1969 for Capitol and a few other labels – all with a sound that's quite different than the group's work for Westbound and Mercury! The style here is rougher and rootsier than in later years – lots of southern soul at the bottom, but also kind of a rollicking party feel that puts the group firmly in the showband tradition of other local acts in the south – a very appealing groove that would be upbeat and grooving one minute, then heartfelt and mellow the next. The set's got a total of 22 tracks in all – and does a good job of bringing together material that's been scattered over a variety of cheapo packages from the 70s onward. Titles include "Stop Lying To Yourself", "Summertime", "You Don't Mean It", "Cold Cold World", "Find Someone To Love", "Trespassin", "I've Got To Hold On", "Love Slips Through My Fingers", "A Little Soul Party", and their tripped-out version of "Over The Rainbow" – which was the one supposedly played at Judy Garland's funeral!

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free SoulSir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul ... CD
Charly (UK), 1973. Used ... $9.99
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

Roscoe SheltonStrain On Your Heart ... LP
Sound Stage 7/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1987. Sealed ... $14.99
A southern soul treasure – the only full album we've ever seen by Roscoe Shelton, plus some previously unissued tracks! Shelton's an excellent singer with a sound that should have made him huge – a deep and bluesy approach to the vocals, and he really knows how to build a tune with a slow, sad, soulful approach. Most of the songs on the set are original numbers, and titles include "I Can't Help Myself", "Question", "My Best Friend", "Worry", "Mastermind", "There's A Heartbreak Somewhere", "Running For My Life", "A Man's Love", "Easy Going Fellow", and "You're The Dream".

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Latin Disco ... CD
Rough Guide, Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Funk and soul meet Latin rhythms – and the result is a really special moment in the New York scene – a time when disco rhythms helped the underground scene burn brightly in the midtown clubs! Back in the 60s, nightspots in the city would routinely host Latin bands – but by the disco generation, much of the Latin action had retreated uptown – until grooves like these got things going again in a whole new light – returning the artists to a wider audience through a swirling blend of strings, jazzy instrumentation, and soulful vocals! The style's one that was so strong back in the day, it's had plenty of power over the years – and the set here also brings together some later variants of Latin disco from around the globe. Titles include "Sunny" by Yambu, "Salsoul Hustle" by Salsoul Orchestra, "La Botella" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "C'Mon Baby Do The Latin Hustle" by Jose Fajardo, "Combate A Kung Fu" by Wganda Kenya, "Latin Lover" by Joe Bataan, "X-Perience" by Grupo X, "Firewalker" by Jungle Fire, and "Everlasting Love" by Los Charly's Orchestra.

✨✧ Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousEverything I Do Gonna Be Funky – From Jazz To Soul 'N' Funk To Blacksploitation ... CD
Brown Sugar (Germany), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty of funky stuff here – a killer assortment of soul and jazz numbers that represent some of the best grooves the 70s had to offer – all packaged together in a wonderfully solid collection! There's a really "essential" feel to the set – an approach that takes us back to the sort of Ace or Charly Records compilations that first started filling holes in our collection decades back – great groove introductions that offer plenty for both the hardcore collector and first-timer. Titles include "Funky Robot" by Rufus Thomas, "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by The Dramatics, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Attica Blues" by Archie Shepp, "Blue's Crib" by Isaac Hayes, "Ghettos Of The Mind" by Pleasure, "Water Torture" by Bennie Maupin, "Like A Thief In The Night" by Mike Longo, "Butterfat" by Leroy Hutson, and "Aunt Monk" by Merl Saunders.

Nascente (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sound of Spanish Harlem in the 70s – a sweet blend of soul, funk, and Latin rhythms – coming together in one unique cultural moment that's given the world a set of grooves that will last forever! The territory's been explored by other compilations in the past – both on the Nascente, Soul Jazz, and Charly labels – but this entry does more than enough of a good job of keeping up the groove, expanding the reach a bit further than usual, to include a few numbers by more obscure artists, a few tracks on the cusp of salsa, and even a few late Latin Soul numbers. 15 tracks in all, with titles that include "8th Avenue" by Willie Colon, "There You Go" by Fania All Stars, "My Daddy's Farm" by Frankie Dante, "Nitty Gritty" by Ricardo Ray, "Flamenco Ain't Bad" by Sabu Martinez, "Funky Felix" by Sequida, "Vida Nocturna" by Benitez & Nebula, "New York Soul" by Ray Barretto, "What You Don't Know" by Mongo Santamaria, "Merecumbe" by Johnny Colon, and "Batumbique" by Andy Harlow.

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.

✨✧ Jonny TeupenHarpadelic ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
