Chocolate Jam CoSpread Of The Future ... CD CD format
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 MilkChocolate Milk (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A real mindblower from Chocolate Milk – and a record that really shows the evolution of the sound of New Orleans funk since the 60s! Back in that decade, the groove was being carved out by The Meters with Allen Toussaint – but here, Toussaint's working with his new favorites, Chocolate Milk – the group who did lots of studio backup for the producer on other projects, but who sound really great on their own! The instrumentation is razor-sharp, and mixed with these sly soulful vocals – and Chocolate Milk really balance out mellow funk numbers with tighter, faster cuts – in a way that's a fair bit like the best sounds coming from the Prestige/Fantasy Records scene at the time. Titles include "Party Happy", "Spread A Little Love", "You've Got Your Spell On Me", "Never Ever Do Without You", "Running Away", and "Pluck It". CD features bonus tracks – "Grand Theft (7" mix)", "Girl Callin (7" mix)", and "Say Wont'Cha (7" mix)". CD

Hot ChocolateHot Chocolate ... LP LP format
Big Tree, 1975. Very Good- ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Big Tree/7T's (UK), 1976. Used ... $6.99
Strutting guitars, stomping rhythms, and a great mix of glam and soul – the trademark groove of the UK's classic Hot Chocolate! The album's filled with great tunes that resonate with their trademark compressed sound – vocals wrapped on guitars and set to sweetly stepping rhythms – all produced to perfection by the mighty Mickie Most, with a sound that so many other current groups try to go for, but can never reach this right! Errol Brown's on lead vocals, and wrote a good deal of the tunes – and titles include "Heaven Is In The Back Seat Of My Cadillac", "Living On A Shoe String", "Sugar Daddy", "Man To Man", "You Could've Been A Lady", "Seventeen Years Of Age", and "Sex Appeal". Also features the bonus tracks "Beautiful Lady" and "Eyes Of A Growing Child". CD

Chocolate MilkAction Speaks Louder Than Words ... CD CD format
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. New Copy ... Around March 3, 2015
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

RCA, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best later albums by Chocolate Milk – a bit different than their earlier work with Allen Toussaint, but still bouncing along in a sweet 80s groove, with more than enough traces of their roots as a funky combo! Leo Nocentelli's sitting in on guitar, adding some nice licks to keep some tracks a bit more firmly grounded in a New Orleans funk tradition, alongside some more modern production touches – and the album's got a compelling vibe that's partly pointed towards the boogie generation of the 80s, but with a heavier funk component overall! Titles include "Let's Go All The Way", "Like My Lady's Love", "Honey Bun", "Running On Empty", "Blue Jeans", and a version of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long". LP, Vinyl record album

New Isaac HayesChocolate Chip ... LP LP format
HBS/ABC, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Infinity, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last great albums from Hot Chocolate – and an album that's still awash in fuzzy guitars and glammy touches as their previous best! Mickie Most is at the helm producing, and the sound here is nicely dark throughout – that slightly spooky kind of pop that was showing up in the UK in the days before punk – and which is a great legacy of glam into the mainstream. The vocals are all nicely pointed – and also oddly creepy at times too – and the guitars chug along with a flanged-out quality that's really great on the fuller cuts. Titles include "So You Win Again", "Put Your Love In Me", "I'll Put You Together Again", "Sometimes It Hurts", "Confetti Day", and the great title track "Every 1's A Winner". LP, Vinyl record album

New Hot ChocolateHot Chocolate (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
P-Vine (Japan), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest lost funk records of all time! The group is not the British pop band, but a funk group led by the great guitarist Lou Ragland. The album's originally from Canada, which makes it super rare – and these guys are funky funky funky, and kick some major booty with a heavy guitar sound that's just great! Some of the cuts are instrumental, and some of them have some excellent soul vocals that are produced with a nice deep sound that's brought out nicely by the excellent quality of the reissue. The record's got a bit of Sly Stone, a bit of Grant Green, and a bit of Mike James Kirkland – with a tasty raw indie soul vibe. The original album was only pressed up at 500 copies – so this reissue is even more essential, because original copies trade hands for over $1000! Titles include "So Dam Funky", "Ain't That A Groove", "Sexy Moods Of Your Mind", "Messin With Sly", and "What You Want To Do" – plus the bonus tracks "Good For The Gander" and the 45 version of "We Had True Love".

Mystically grooving psychedelia from Chocolate Watch Band – a heady mix of the psyche sounds of the era with some really groovy Eastern inspired spirals of sound! The band doesn't skimp on the hip shaping and head nodding rock vibes – with some Stones-y swagger, especially in the vocals – but they bring the freaked out instrumental vibes into the mix very nicely – some sitar, really heavy bass grooves, shakers and other leftfield percussive touches. Titles include "Voyage Of The Trieste", "In The Past", "Inner Mystique", "I'm Not Like Everybody Else", "Medication", "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go", "Baby Blue" and "I Ain't No Miracle Worker". CD

New Hot ChocolateCicero Park (with bonus CD) ... CD CD format
Big Tree/7T's (UK), 1974. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums by this seminal British rock & soul of the 70s – a great mix of group soul and funky rock, with some overtures to the oncoming disco scene that work incredibly well within the heavy rhythms and strings and brass punctuated groove the group worked in so masterfully! The vocals are great, and the album's got some of the band's most perfectly realized playing – and the tightly compressed guitar work is hard grooving. You'll hear this to best effect on the wonderful cut "Emma", a killer 70s rock number that was later covered with heaping irony by Urge Overkill. Other tracks include "Cicero Park", "Could Have Been Born In the Ghetto", "You're A Natural High", "Brother Louie", and "Funky Rock n Roll". This 2CD has bonus disc with 15 tracks! Titles include "Love Is Life", "Pretty Girls", "Everybody's Laughing", "I Believe In Love", "Caveman Billy", "I Want To Be Free" and much more. CD

New Ndugu & The Chocolate Jam CoDo I Make You Feel Better (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Epic/FTG, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Definitely the sort of album to make you feel better – given the tight, soulful sounds of Ndugu Chancler and this Chocolate Jam Company! The album's got roots in jazz – Ndugu's a drummer with work on countless other albums – but also steps out with plenty of soul, too – thanks to vocals from Ndugu, Leo Miller, Josie James, and Maxi Anderson – who often sing together in this warm style that fits perfectly with the grooves in the set! Instrumentation is definitely a cut above the usual session of this type – no surprise, given the jazz and fusion heavyweights in the lineup – and the tunes are catchy and grooving, yet never clunky or commercial at all. The blend is sublime – the sort that's made the record a standout for years – and titles include "Send You My Love", "Space Connection", "Make You Feel Better", "Jungle Journey", "Love Anew", and "Come Into My Life Again". CD features three bonus tracks – "Shadow Dancing (7" version)", "Take Some Time (7" version)", and "Love Anew (7" version)". CD

A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks, who also produced the album – and Randy's got this way of hitting a groove that's confident, but never arrogant – a perfect late 70s masculine mode, of the sort only a handful of singers could handle this well! Titles include "Without You (I Can't Make It Through The Night)", "We Ought To Be Doin It", and "Do You Love Me?" – all of which have great hooks – plus "Do You Love Me", "Love Be With You", and "Love Formula".

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". LP, Vinyl record album

Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
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".

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".

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!

One 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.

If anything, Starpoint seems to be a lot more confident than before – working in a mode that's completely free from late 70s trends, but which also doesn't fall into the traps of others of their generation – a sound that's electric and funky, yet also plenty darn soulful too. Renee Diggs' vocals are completely great on the album – bringing in a depth that's really appreciated, and giving the group a much more well-rounded sound than so many other all male ensemble funk acts of the time. Ballads and mellower numbers are every bit as great as the groovers too – and titles include "All Night Long", "Get Your Body Up", "Bring Your Sweet Lovin Back", "Show Me", "I Can Give You Love", and "It's You".

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".

Bionic BoogieBionic Boogie (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Polydor/FTG, 1977. Used ... $19.99
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy undercurrent that really keeps things interesting – far more so than most other mainstream disco sets of the time! Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company – handled the arrangements – and the grooves spin out nicely from Diamond's keyboards, and a tight mix of strings and jazzy horns. Vocals are from the soulful trio of Gwen Guthrie, Ullanda McCullough, and Zachary Sanders – and titles include "Dance Little Dreamer", "Risky Changes", "Boogie Boo", "We Must Believe In Music", "Feel Like Dancing", and "Don't Lose The Number". CD features 2 bonus tracks – 12" extended mixes of "Dance Little Dreamer" and "Risky Changes". CD

Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
Not The Beatles, but a group who are trying to cash in on their fame – by showing a monstrous Beatle wig on the cover of the album, covering a horde of dancers – and by playing a whole host of instrumentals with a nod to the Brit Invasion! We're guessing the Blue Beats were some American studio combo – as the overall project doesn't have a real UK sound – and they've definitely got their chops, especially on the guitar lines – which are recorded with a nice dose of echo and a good deal of twang, and mixed in with stomping rhythms and the occasional keyboard line. Titles include "The Chocolate Pudding Slop", "The Swingin Spiders' Bo Diddley", "The Fat Kings' Twist", "The Broken Egg Frug", "The Cold Mashed Potato", and "The Big Shoe Twist". CD

ChihuahuaLatin Session (includes download) ... LP LP format
Fonseca/Andale, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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".

Score, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $4.99
An excellent album of hard-rolling piano – part R&B, part blues, and part jazz, some of the incredible work of pianist Lloyd Glenn, a heavy handed groover from the 50s. The tracks are all short, with a rolling piano groove that's part Texas, part New Orleans. Titles include "Glenn's Guide", "Shadow Land", "Chocolate Drop", "Chica Boo", "Tiddley Winks", "Nite Flite", and "Still Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes & Dionne WarwickMan & A Woman ... CD CD format
ABC/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful duet set from Ike Hayes and Dionne Warwick – one that draws on the classiest side of the Hayes spectrum, and uses his groove to help Dionne find some great new energy! Even in performance, the music has that great rich quality that Isaac always brought to his solo recordings in the 70s – with strings, backup singers, and some tight undercurrents that help keep things soulful throughout – really cutting through the schmaltz of Ike's shiny tux on the cover! Dionne really sparkles in his company – and the record features duo numbers, solo spots, and even some nice medley tracks. The band behind the pair are electric, mellow, and very soulful – and titles include "Can't Hide Love", "Chocolate Chip", "Then Came You", "Come Live With Me", "Unity", and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" and "I Say A Little Prayer", done nicely in a medley together.

Mickey & The Soul GenerationMickey & The Soul Generations (3LP set) ... LP LP format
Cali Tex, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 35.98
Was funk ever this great again? Maybe not – as Mickey & The Soul Generation were one of the greatest groups of their generation – a completely polished gem, in the sometimes rough-edged funky 45 rockpile! The band never cut a full album, but their 7" singles from the early 70s are the stuff of legend – some of the first funky 45s that started passing amongst collectors, prized for their incredibly tight sound – right up there with the JBs, Meters, and other established funky acts for pure "in the pocket" action. Most of that rare early work's never been reissued – save for the occasional dodgy boot – which is why it's even more wonderful to have this double-length set of work by the group, complete with a fuller track listing than we'd ever imagined they recorded, and full notes on the music and band by Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow! This insane 3LP set is bigger than any previous collection on the group – and has updated notes from Davis, plus a lot more tracks – including a previously unreleased LP, demo material, and live tracks too! Tracks include "Iron Leg", "Football", "Up The Stairs & Around The Bend", "Give Everybody Some", "Joint Session", "Chocolate", "Message From A Black Man", "Soulful Sickness", "UFO", "Hey Brother Man", "Southern Fried Funk", "How Good Is Good", and "We Got To Make A Change".

Nicole Mitchell's Sonic ProjectionsEmerald Hills ... CD CD format
Rogue Art (France), 2010. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the sharpest sessions we've heard from Nicole Mitchell in years – a record that still holds onto the spiritual depth she's developed strongly over the past decade, yet one that also returns to some of the bolder avant modes of her roots! The group here is nice and lean – Mitchell on flutes, alongside David Boykin on tenor, Craig Taborn on piano, and Chad Taylor on drums and percussion – a Chicago group recorded in a comfortable local setting, one that really allows them to stretch out and hit new heights! It's great to hear Mitchell hitting so many voices with her instrument – and there's a broad range of tones and moods that really reminds us of the early AACM tradition. Titles include "Surface Of Syrius", "Visitations", "Ritual & Rebellion", "Chocolate Chips", "Wild Life", "Wishes", and "Affirmations". CD

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
The self-titled groovy rock masterpiece from Moby Grape – one of the greatest things to come out of San Francisco after Ghiradelli Chocolate and sourdough bread! The Moby Grape LP is one of the finest, and leanest LPs we can think of from the '67 school of Bay Area psychedelic rock – with ome genius work by a young Skip Spence & co that leans on a sound that grows up and out from a blues based approach into the stratophere! – original LP tracks include "Omaha", "Hey Grandma", "Changes", "Sitting By The Window", "Ain't No Use", "Mr Blues", "Naked, If I Want To", "8:05", "Lazy Me", "Someday" and more LP, Vinyl record album

A groovy batch of Varitone sax tracks – featuring Al Serafini on the electric sax, with backings arranged by Tom Baker and Chuck Curtis in a mod late 60s kind of groove! Some of the best numbers have a strong electric bass at the bottom – rolling around with a nice kick to the drums. Titles include "Sir Albert", "Lil Rosey", "Hey Soul Man", and "Charade". Plus, the original tunes on the album are written by Lou Ragland – who we assume is the same Ragland of Hot Chocolate fame, given that Al's from Cleveland! LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie SmithFunk Reaction ... CD CD format
LC/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $21.99
A sweet 70s groover from the great Lonnie Smith – a soulful little session that has the keyboardist really stretching out in some great ways! At the time, Smith fares a lot better than some of his late 60s jazz organ contemporaries – as he's got a great lean style, perfect for the decade's increasing use of electric keyboards and larger backings! This set's a great example of that style – as Smith moves way from his 60s soul jazz roots, into the soaring blend of jazz, funk, and soul that you'd also hear on Johnny Hammond albums of the time – almost more soul than jazz, given the presence of vocals on some cuts – but still always with more than enough room for the leader to stretch out and solo. Backings are nice and tight – and handled by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame) – and tracks include "Funk Reaction", "For The Love Of It", "It's Changed", and "When The Night Is Right".

New Mavis Staples/Curtis MayfieldPiece Of The Action ... LP LP format
Curtom, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the last great 70s soundtracks on Curtom Records – a smoking little set that pairs the music of Curtis Mayfield with the vocals of Mavis Staples! Curtis is very much in charge of the record from the start, and works in a hard-stepping and righteous mode that recalls his earlier work on the Staples' soundtrack for Let's Do It Again – no surprise, given that Piece Of The Action was the next installment in the successful series of films that starred Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier! The sound here is nicely full, hitting that rich mid 70s Curtom mode that sounded so great on Leroy Hutson and Natural Four albums of the time – a slightly more sophisticated approach that mixed in a bit of strings with the heavier funk at the bottom. Titles include "Chocolate City", written by Curtis with Keni Burke and Henry Gibson, plus "Getting Deeper", "A Piece Of The Action", "Orientation", and "Of Whom Shall I Be Afraid".

One of Joe's sweeter and smoother sessions of the 70s – a record that takes the core horn sound of his Ebony Godfather years, and fuses it with some larger backings directed by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame!) The sound actually works well for Joe – and has him playing in a style that's a lot like the Kudu work of Grover Washington – stretching solos out over electric rhythms that have a smooth but funky style. Titles include "Green Dragon", "Same Old Song", "Place In Space", "Gotcha", and "Here I Come". LP, Vinyl record album

The best cuts have that flanged out vocal style of Tony's that we like so much, and even though arrangements are nothing special, the album's pleasant enough overall. Titles include "Try Love", "Give Your Lady What She Wants", "Lay Next To You", "Fool Around", "Africa", and "New Orleans Music". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

TK/Shout (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Sublime sounds from the legendary TK Records family of labels – home to some of the coolest, grooviest music from Miami in the 70s – plus more grooves from other sources too! The package focuses on a style that was definitely TK's strongest suit at the time – their wonderful way of blending together funk, soul, and club into a style that was beautifully mellow – and which really paved the way for lots of other modern soul work in years to come. These nuggets are some of the best of TK's catalog – and have a level of presentation that really goes way past the usual for an indie label – almost AOR in perfection, but with some nicely rougher edges. The mix features 26 tracks sliding together gracefully – and titles include "Keep It Up" by Milton Wright, "Sweet Vibrations" by Latimore, "Free" by Chocolate Clay, "The Way We Live" by Raw Soul Express, "Gee Wiz Boy" by Regina James, "Good Good Lovin" by Charles Johnson, "Love's Sweet Notions" by Billion Dollar Band, "Our Day is Here" by JP Robinson, "IT's You Girl" by Universal Love, "Something Special" by Lew Kirton, "If It Was Me" by Sundray Tucker "The Silence That You Keep" by Milton Wright, "Beautiful World" by Leno Phillips, "Bluestrain" by Beginning Of The End, and "Miami Bump" by The Rising Sun.

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.

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
