Chocolate Jam CoSpread Of The Future ... CD
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume! Titles include "Don't Leave Me Now Stay With Me", "Feeling", "This Time", "Looking Glass", and the extended "Suite Chocolate". CD

Chocolate MilkAction Speaks Louder Than Words ... CD
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A killer album of 70s New Orleans funk! Chocolate Milk were an amazing funk group in their best moments – and this album is certainly one of those moments – a blistering batch of tracks that set a whole new style for the Crescent City scene, and which showed that producers Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn could easily hit the hipper notes of the 70s! There's a tight rhythmic sound at the core of most numbers, but expanded instrumentation over the top – bits of spacey electrics or jazzier electronics that never would have shown up in Sansu records of years back, but which show that with the right group, New Orleans funk could easily take on the hippest styles going down on both coasts! The title cut, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words", is a slow funk classic – and the record also includes the incredible electronic-tinged "Time Machine", a perpetual favorite these days. Other nice tracks include "Pretty Pimpin' Willie" and "Ain't Nothin' But a Thing". Arguably the band's best album ever! CD

Chocolate MilkMilky Way ... LP
RCA, 1979. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Tight, funky, and plenty darn groovy – a set that has Chocolate Milk sounding a lot smoother than at their start, but still pretty darn great overall! Allan Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn are still around to help the group on production, but the sound is more LA than New Orleans – a well-crafted set of grooves that almost seems to have the group's Crescent City roots shaking hands with the sunnier sound of California soul in the late 70s. That latter aspect adds in some nice jazzy touches – ala Fantasy Records – and almost gives the record a Wayne Henderson-styled groove at points, especially on some of the mellow steppers and midtempo numbers. Titles include "Milky Way", "You're The One", "Hurry Down Sunset", "Groove City", "Say Won'tcha", and "Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

A mix of spiraling psychedelia and grittier garagey rock from Chocolate Watch Band! No Way Out has a bit more grit than the more mystical follow up LP, but we wouldn't complain about that – the mix of more tripped out organ and atmospheric touches paired with harder hitting, sweaty r&b and fuzz rock influenced sounds match pretty well in our book! Groovy stuff from the late 60s Cali scene! Titles include "Let's Talk About Girls", "Midnight Hour", "Come On", "Dark Side Of The Mushroom", "Hot Dusty Road", "Gone And Passes By", "Expo 2000" and "Gossamer Wings". CD

Stax/Fantasy, 1975. Used ... $4.99
Slightly later than some of Isaac Hayes' biggest Stax albums – but a great little record that's filled with some excellent smooth soul material! The record shows Hayes really trying to push his style to new levels, and it's got a sophistication that you don't hear on earlier albums – a sound that hints at the Polydor years, but without as much of a disco influence. Ike's also dropped his thing of doing a lot of soul covers of pop tracks – which means that the record's got a lot more original material, served up with a new sort of focus on songwriting! Titles include "Chocolate Chip", a perennial fave on the dancefloor, in both vocal and instrumental versions – plus "I Can't Turn Around", "Come Live With Me", and "Body Language". CD

Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized – but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting and counterbalancing in a similar style to that heard on some of Roy Ayers' best work from the early 70s. Clinton's begun introducing a lot of elements of Funkadelic into the group – but the tracks are still short and very tight, with a focussed approach to both funk and lyrics that really makes the album stand up to repeated listenings over the years. The album begins with the sublime "Chocolate City", a surprisingly political number that has these incredible jagged piano lines that echo away madly – then it rolls into other great numbers like "Side Effects", "What Comes Funky", "If It Don't Fit, Don't Force It", and "I Misjudged You". CD includes 3 bonus tracks – "If It Don't Fit Don't Force It (alternate)", "I Misjudged You (alternate)", and "Common Law Wife (previously unreleased)". CD

✨✧ Hot ChocolateHot Chocolate (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Tree/7T's (UK), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set from one of the most unique acts of the 70s – the legendary Hot Chocolate, a group with a sound unlike anyone else at the time! Hot Chocolate's groove was a bit soul, a bit rock, and often nicely funky underneath – and the British group really won lots of new ears on this side of the Atlantic with their bad-stepping approach to 70s pop! This self-titled album's one of the greatest ever from the group – and the cool compressed production further pushes their sound into really great territory – mushing the guitars up alongside the keyboards, squeezing the hip vocals of Errol Brown into a badass edge, and glamming things up ever so slightly. Arrangements are by the great John Cameron – a talent we've loved since his late 60s work with Donovan – and production is by the legendary Mickie Most, who's still burning strong here in the 70s. The album features the group's huge hit "You Sexy Thing", plus "Lay Me Down", "Amazing Skin Song", "Hello America", "The Street", "Call The Police", and "A Child's Prayer". CD is overflowing with bonus tracks too – including the b-side version of "You Sexy Thing", and the cuts "Sexy Lady", "Blue Night", "Cheri Babe", and "Everything Should Be Funky". CD

✨✧ Chocolate MilkWe're All In This Together ... LP
RCA, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked funky classic from Chocolate Milk – and a set that still preserves the tight grooves of the group's earliest work! Allan Toussaint is still on hand this time around to help with both production and songwriting – and his touches can definitely be felt on the record – a tight funky undercurrent that's definitely rooted in New Orleans soul, but has some warmer, more contemporary elements too – just like that mid 70s change Toussaint was bringing to his own grooves. Standout cuts include the funky numbers "Grand Theft" and "America" – plus the groover "Girl Callin" – although there's some mellower numbers we like pretty darn well too. Other tracks include "Help Me Find The Road", "Thinking Of You", "That's The Way She Loves", and "Fertility". LP, Vinyl record album

The cover's a bit creepy, but the album's still plenty great – old school Cameo still strongly in a funk-based mode, before some of the stiffer grooves of their later years! Bass is the ruler of the set – and most tracks here vamp around in a very heavy P-Funk style of groove – lots of guitar dancing around the rhythms, and plenty of spoken/sung vocals from the whole ensemble – not to mention a heavy dose of keyboards that helps keep things clean and lean! A partyful album if there ever was one – with tracks that include "Soul Army", "Enjoy Your Life", "Flirt", "Secrets Of Time", "I Owe It All To You", and "For You". CD

CameoFeel Me ... CD
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A great 80s groove from Cameo – but one that's still done in the group's best early funk ensemble mode! There's maybe a bit more emphasis on the basslines and keyboards than before, but the sound of the music is still wonderfully full and spontaneous – very much in keeping with the warmly collaborative look of the group on the cover, who really sound like they're having a hell of a lot of fun making the record! The rhythms have a razor-sharpness that just about nobody else can touch – and there's all these cool little instrumental flourishes that sneak into the mix and really keep things interesting – odd sounds on familiar instruments, moogy moments on keyboards, and even some vocal inflections that come as a nice surprise. There's two nice mellow cuts – "Feel Me" and "Is This The Way", which have a sweetly compressed harmony sound on the lyrics – and funky numbers include "Better Days", "Keep It Hot", "Roller Skates", and "Is This The Way".

Massively funky work from Cameo – a set that's right in the middle of their classic early run – and still quite strong on the bass-heavy grooves the group helped inspire in countless legions of imitators! The tightness of the set is incredible – moving at a pace that's simply mindblowing, especially in a pre-sampling, pre-programming world – proof that spontaneous work by a group like this could still blow away any commercial crap! There's a few mellower moments too – always a side of the group that we love – and titles include "Use It Or Lose It", "Freaky Dancin", "I Like It", "Knights By Nights", "I'll Always Stay", "The Sound Table", and "Don't Be So Cool".

CameoUgly Ego/Secret Omen ... CD
Chocolate City/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of killers from Cameo – both from their legendary late 70s run! Ugly Ego is one of our favorite albums ever from Cameo – the group's third release! The album's got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of the bass-driven grooves that made their early albums so great – a compressed approach to the music that was copied by countless other groups at the time, but rarely came off this well! The whole thing's great – filled with excellent cuts that include "I'll Be With You", "Give Love a Chance", "Ugly Ego", "Two of Us", "Friend to Me", "Insane", and "I Want You". Super-dope – with loads of great jams! Secret Omen is a sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really live up to that legacy here – impeccably fusing bass, drums, and everything else together – in a groove that lived far beyond disco, really influenced both hip hop and house, and which makes the album one of their real lasting treasures. Groovers include "Macho", "Find My Way", "Energy", and "I Just Want To Be" – and the album also includes the guitar-funk jammer "The Rock", and the stellar stepper "Sparkle" – which is one of our favorite Cameo cuts ever!

Chocolate Industries, 2005. Used ... $5.99
Ghislain Poirer once again delivers a batch of synthetic rhythms and computer groove with a thump learned from hip hop – and the results are far more enjoyable than many of the more pretentious laptop chin scratchers out there! Ghislain's beats occasionally ratchet up to floorshaking levels, and he leans towards a genuine musicality that draw on different styles, for a still coherent sound. He can rock a hip hop styled sound with guest MCs, a dark, almost no wave intensity, midtempo electronic groove, even a reggae steeped track. All of which is to say that it actually succeeds as real music, not just synthetic clutter! Tracks include "Don't Smile, It's Post Modern", "Cold As Hell" feat Beans, "Synthetic Rhythms", "Close To The News", "Mic Diplomat" feat DJ Collage, "Copier, Copier", "Travelling", "Body Jokes", "Nowere To Run" feat Lotek Hi-Fi, "Embargo Riddim" and more!

✨✧ CameoCardiac Arrest/We All Know Who We Are ... CD
Chocolate City/Superbird (UK), 1975/1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great Mid 70s records from Cameo – Cardiac Arrest from 1975 and We All Know Who We Re from 1977 – together in a single set! Cardiac Arrest is excellent early work from the group. It's got a really sublime approach – tightly funking, but not too fast, in the mode of some of their weaker 80s material. The band have that tightly snapped groove firmly in place – as you'd already know if you've heard the album's classic sample cuts, "Rigor Mortis" and "Post Mortem". Other tracks include "Funk, Funk", "Find My Way", and "Good Times" – and the record's one of the best of the bunch from this period! We All Know Who We Are is of the most overlooked Cameo albums – and one we go back to more than the rest! Unlike some of the group's other funk-heavy outings, this one's nicely restrained, with a sophisticated ensemble soul style that reminds us of the best mid 70s work by Earth Wind & Fire. A real highlight is the smooth stepping title cut – "We All Know Who We Are" – a wonderfully catchy number that's also got a really righteous message, and kind of a "Damn Right I Am Somebody" intro, with the band rapping to each other before the song starts. Other tracks include "It's Serious", "Inflation", and "Stand Up". CD

Bouncy, bubbly soul from Vernon Burch – one of his stone dancefloor classics from the 70s, served up with a groove that never quits! Burch is one of the few who can make a clubby set sparkle with the more personal qualities of a mellower soul album – and this excellent set is a great example of his style at the time. Production is by James Gadson, who also plays funky drums in the small backing combo – along with keyboards from Michael Thompson and guitar from Burke himself. Titles include the slightly bizarre transgender tune "Sammy Joanne (One Half Woman One Half Man)" – but other numbers are all pretty great, and include "Get Up", "Arrogant Lady", "Once Again In My Life", "Never Can Find The Way", and "For You".

Once things get rolling, some of those sweet moogy touches you'd expect come into the mix – giving the whole thing a P&P vibe – but the beginning of the cut has this wonderful South Bronx old school groove, mixed perfectly by Kenny Dope! "Pop" has drums that are more electronic, then mixed with these really cool moogy bits – making for a wicked stripped-down electro funk instrumental! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Capitol/Dusty Groove, Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $17.99 19.98
A massive live set from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that really shows the growth he'd undergone in just a few short years! The album's done in close collaboration with David Axelrod – who'd handled Cannon's big live dates for Capitol in the 60s – but this record is much more freewheeling, open-ended, fuzz, funky, and electric overall! Tracks are all nice and long, and really trip out in the best way – with keyboards from George Duke in the core group, plus some heavy basslines from Walter Booker, drums from Roy McCurdy, and guitar from Mike Deasy on a number of key tracks. Deasy plays with lots of great wah wah and fuzz – and the album also features guest work from Airto on percussion and Ernie Watts on tenor – plus Cannonball's great alto and the cornet of brother Nat Adderley too. There's a really collaborative feel to the whole thing – as the record steps easily between a lot of heady styles – and titles include "Zanek", "Eye Of The Cosmos", "The Scene", "The Chocolate Nuisance", "The Steam Drill", "Little Benny Hen", and "The Black Messiah".

A special project from Chicago radio personality and soul music historian Marcus Chapman – volume 1 of his list of the top 500 songs of all time – laid out in a really unique format! Marcus devotes a page to each song – with information on the artists, writer, release dates, and other key details – then provides a short essay on each song too – outlining its importance in his own musical universe! These entries are interspersed with a range of black and white photos – some showing Chapman meeting the artists over the years, some showing rare treasures from his collection – records and memorabilia he's had autographed by the stars. The book doesn't just cover soul music, too – because alongside entries by artists like Roy Ayers, Chocolate Milk, Eazy E, and James Brown – you'll also find a few surprising entries on Foghat, Thin Lizzy, and Kiss! Still mostly soul music, though – with a strong focus on the 60s, 70s, and 80s variety. Book

ChihuahuaLatin Session (includes download) ... LP
Fonseca/Andale, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Cuba descara – played American style! The set's a killer bit of Latin jazz from the New York scene of the 60s – a really brilliant effort headed up by Osvaldo Chihuahua Martinez – who plays both timbale and guiro – in a crack lineup that also features Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, Chombo Silva on tenor sax, Manfredo Lee on guiro, and Dick Meldonial on flute – all players that get plenty of space to show off their talents here – especially on the solo moments, which really take off from the straighter vocal passages. Percussion is tremendous too – thanks to congas from Enrique Navarro – and titles include "Oye Lo Pollo", "Chihuahua En Timbales", "Cosquilla", "El Cavallo", "Cuban Night", and "Coco De Agua".

Dusty Groove CoffeeEverybody Loves The Sunshine – 12oz bag (whole bean) ... Misc
Dark Matter/Dusty Groove Gear, 2015. New Item ... $12.99
A wonderful coffee that lives up to its name – roasted especially by the folks at Chicago's Dark Matter for our coffee drinking needs here at Dusty Groove! The base component to this blend is a coffee from Mexico and grown and milled at a cooperative called El Eden – very unique for a Mexican coffee, with a flavor profile that includes blueberry, banana, and baker's chocolate to give the blend a bit of depth. This base is then highlighted with a coffee from Guatemala grown by Finca San Jeronimo Miramar – which adds both body, and some lighter notes of toffee and praline – to give the whole thing a wonderful sun-drenched finish!

Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan & OthersJazz Giants '58 ... LP
Verve, 1958. Good ... $3.99
An all-star session put together by Verve in 1958 – one that features a septet of some of the label's biggest giants in jazz at the time! The format here is a bit open-ended – almost like some of the earlier JATP sessions on Verve – with lots of room for personal interaction between the soloists, especially the horn players in the lead! These include Stan Getz on tenor, Gerry Mulligan on baritone sax, and Harry Edison on trumpet – working alongside Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums. Titles include a beautiful extended "Ballad Medley" – really a great illustration of the freedoms that Verve brought to jazz recording in the 50s – plus the titles"Chocolate Sundae", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "Candy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing. Cover has moderate wear, mostly split seams and some tape.)

Freddie HubbardBody & The Soul (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Impulse/Analogue Productions, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP ... $34.99
A real standout in the early career of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – a very unique session that has him working with some larger arrangements in the background – blowing these magical solos over the top, while still hitting a great edge with the rest of the musicians as well! There's a sound here that's unlike anything else we can think of – including other big band trumpet dates of the time – partly because the set features a fair bit of arrangements by Wayne Shorter – a very rare side of his talents, but one that's equally as soulful as his sublime small group albums of the time. The record has an undeniable depth right from the start – magical, mystical, and very soulful – with a group that includes Eric Dolphy and Wayne Shorter on saxes, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Cedar Walton on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass. Tracks include "Chocolate Shake", "Thermo", "Clarence's Place", and "Aries". LP, Vinyl record album

Timeless, 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Quite late in his career for Machito – but a great set nonetheless, with some hard-hitting Latin jazz arrangements that are some of his best work in years! Tracks are long and very jamming – performed live by a big band with Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, and lots of nice long and jazzy soloing bits. Titles include "Tibiri Tabara", "Oye La Rumba", "Buenas Noches Che Che", and "Mambo Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Georgia Anne MuldrowKings Ballad ... CD
Ubiquity, 2010. Used ... $4.99
The best yet from underground soul force Georgia Anne Muldrow – an artist who has now put out more exceptional music in a handful of years as both artist and producer than many do in a career these days! Kings Ballad is her full length debut for Ubiquity, a record that's as boundlessly creative as anything she's done to date, but with a cohesive sense of soul that could get her over in the mainstream if the mainstream has its ears open! In some ways the record is a consolidation of her styles – from 70s spiritual soul strains, to trunk-rattling hip hop funk, to cosmic jazzy soundscapes, but the songs are really strong and focused on this record without sacrificing the spacey atmosphere. We keep thinking she's gonna peak, but she keeps on raising the bar! Titles include "Indeed", "Doobie Down", "Simple Advice", "Kings Ballad", "RIP", "Thrones", "Summers Love", "Shang-A-Lang", "The Ohh Wee Show", "Chocolate Reign", "Baby Dee", "Live", "Morena Del Ray" and more.

Cedar WaltonEastern Rebellion 4 ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
An expanded version of the quartet you'd usually expect to hear in this classic Eastern Rebellion series – and a group that really makes all the best of all their added elements! In addition to Cedar Walton's amazing work on piano, the set also features Curtis Fuller on trombone, Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, Bob Berg on tenor, David Williams on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – the last three of whom are familiar Rebellion partners, but who get some new power in the lead from the presence of Fuller and Armenteros! Chocolate's horn seems to lead the group into some Latin jazz modes – which really open up Billy Higgins' work on the kit in a great way – and Walton responds with a strongly rhythmic version of his lyrical mode. Titles include "Close Enough For Love", "Manteca", "Groundwork", "St Thomas", and "I Am Not So Sure". CD

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

Boddie/Numero, 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
Numero does it again – unleashing an amazing batch of work for the first time ever – all packaged in a very limited Record Store Day set! The collection features material that was pressed up at the tiny Boddie pressing plant in Cleveland – a wonderful range of local artists from the late 60s through the mid 80s – all served up with the usual Numero flair! The set's a rich discovery of sounds we'd never have heard otherwise – and although it's slanted heavily towards rare funk and soul, there's also some compelling indie rock sides too – especially some homegrown, dark-toned sounds from the 80s – clearly influenced by the styles in the UK underground. The set features 17 tracks in all – including "Don't Stop Smiling" by Jus Us, "Just A Dream" by Imperial Wonders, "Love Is On The Way" by Bill Spoon, "Let Me Go" by The Harmonics, "I'm Gonna Treat You Good" by The Donations, "Good For The Gander" by Hot Chocolate, "Woman You're Gonna Pay For This" by Wicked Lester, "The Voyage Of The Nautilus" by Russell Potter, and "Snakepit" by Berlin West.

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet set of dancefloor soul from the first half of the 80s – and it goes way past the hits! Volume 19 features cuts by Donna McGhee, Chocolate Milk, Con Funk Shun and a couple other names on the more recognizable tip, but it's also got great stuff by groups and solo stars that aren't often anthologized, but just as worthy. Crisp 80s funky production and breezy soul harmonies are the order the day here, and there's not an overplayed jam to be found, so it's got a fresh feel! Includes "Lovin' Fever" by Con Funk Shun, "Bye Gones" by Tom Browne, "Peace Of Mind" by Genobia Jeter, "Sweet Heat" by Chocolate Milk, "Way Out" by Dynasty, "Better Day" by Gift Of Dreams, "Danger Zone" by Midnight Express, "The Champ" by American Gypsy, "Love Me Tonight" by Attitude, "You Should Have Told Me" by Donna McGhee and more. 13 in all.

VariousMidwest Funk – Funk 45s From Tornado Alley ... CD
Jazzman/Stones Throw, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
Quite possibly one of the greatest funk compilations ever – and we're not just saying that because we're from the Midwest! The genius compilers at Jazzman spent years scouring the smaller cities of the American hinterlands – tracking down obscure musicians, long-lost labels, and nearly-gone master tapes – all to bring together 23 bits of rare funk that bristle with the same energy and excitement as the day they were first recorded! The package is incredible – not only filled with incredible tunes that somehow manage to push the boundaries and redefine our understanding of classic funk from the time, but also doing so in a package that's filled with liner notes that offer more information on the artists than probably their own mothers know! Plus, the set's also got some previously unissued numbers as well – making it a must-have for any funk fan, even if you've somehow managed to track down original copies of some of these choice bits! Titles include "Whip It" by The New Establishment In Soul, "Let's Do It Today (full version)" by The Us, "Pushin To The Top" by Markus Kelly & The Impassions, "Sissy Walk" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Tell Her" by Fred Williams & The Jewels Band, "The Hatch" by The TMGs, "Boots Groove" by The Soul Tornados, "Po Boy's Dream" by Illinois Connection, "It's Not You For Me (live)" by Billy Joe Holloman, "Funky In Here" by Dayton Sidewinders, "Master Groove" by Henry Peters & The Imperials, and "A Day In The Life" by Chocolate Snow.

A mindblowing collection of 80s groovers – 2 CDs worth of music, and overflowing with great bits from the Capitol Rare generation! The set really comes together wonderfully – and features some lesser-known tunes by bigger artists, plus a few stone classics from the time, offered up in longer mixes lifted from 12" singles. The groove is completely tight and outta site – lots of heavy bass, sweet keyboard riffs, and the best jazzed-up soul approach of the 80s groove era! 20 tracks in all, with titles that include "All Because Of You (extended)" by Beau Williams, "Right From The Start (extended)" by O'Brian, "Crazy (extended)" by Colorblind, "Let's Go All The Way" by Chocolate Milk, "Feelgood (extended)" by Blue Feather, "Tell Me Why" by Change, "Trust In Me (extended)" by LJ Reynolds, and "A Good Thing Is So Hard To Find" by Deep.

Expansion (UK), 1975/2013. New Copy ... $9.99
An amazing cut – served up here in two different versions! The original version of "Los Conquistadores" is a seminal cut from the legendary Johnny Hammond – a key number off his classic Larry Mizell-produced album Gears – with a vibe that equally ties together jazz, soul, funk, and club – at a level that's gone onto become a huge inspiration for generations of house music artists over the years! Quasimode take on the tune on the flipside – in a smaller group jazz reading, but one that still has amazing keyboards and rhythms – and a soaring groove that really takes off, even without any production from Mizell! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Milestone/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... About September 25, 2015
Amazing stuff! Johnny "Hammond" Smith began his career as a simple soul jazz organist – but by the time of this album, he'd teamed up with the mighty Larry Mizell, the genius arranger/producer who'd breathed new life into the careers of Donald Byrd and Bobbi Humphrey. Mizell works with Hammond in the same way he does with other jazz artists – by taking a groove that works best with their solo style, and slowly layering other instrumentation and effects on top of it, so that when the solo kicks in, it's supported on waves and waves of funky sounds and soulful grooves. Mizell and his brother Fonce both play keyboards on the record, and the rest of the group includes monster fusion players like Harvey Mason, Roger Glenn, Hadley Caliman, and Jerry Peters. The real treat is Johnny, though – as his solos are heavenly, the best of his 70s work, stripped mean and lean, laid in at just the right points. Includes the breakbeat classic "Shifting Gears", the house classic "Los Conquistadores Chocolates", and funky numbers "Fantasy" and "Tell Me What To Do". CD

Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic cuts, given amazing new edits and remixes by the Mighty Mike Maurro – at a level that's every bit as great as the Tom Moulton collections we've loved from Harmless Records! Like those gems, this one focuses on the most soulful side of the 70s clubs – especially the early cuts that crossed over into the discos, but before "disco" was any sort of standard format – just some very groovy upbeat soul coming from the Philly and New York scenes! Like Moulton, Maurro's got a way of really opening up the shorter originals – finding the best bits and augmenting them as he stretches things out and creates these beautifully extended grooves. 3CD set features 21 tracks, but most run near the 10 minute mark, or past – which makes for well over 3 hours of music – mixes of tracks that include "Side Show" by Blue Magic, "The Love I Lost" and "Bad Luck" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Shame" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Young Hearts Run Free" by Candi Staton, "Burnin Up" by Imagination, "Waching You" by Slave, "Searching" by Change, "Stay Free" by Ashford & Simpson, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Doctor Love" by First Choice, "Tried Tested & Found True" by Ashford & Simpson, "Los Conquistadores Chocolates" by Johnny Hammond, "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke, and "Deeper" by New Birth.
