✨✧ VariousDJ Format's Psych Out – A Collection Of International Funky Fuzz-Laden Gems ... CD
BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cool cuts from around the globe – all brought together in one wonderfully funky set! The music here all draws heavily from American funk and psych styles – and often uses some slightly different instrumentation, or more regional inflection – to make the usual psych funk styles sound even more groovy and exotic – in a mindblowing way that makes the entire set a real musical delight! Most tracks are instrumental – heavy on drums and fuzzy guitar – but there's a few vocal moments, too – and the funk current is super-strong, way more so than on other collections that promise a heavy bottom, but usually just present offbeat psych. Titles include "Jet Pop" by Bana Pop Band, "Foxy Lady" by 49th Blue Streak, "Karate Chop" by The Tijuana Brats, "Stari Dvorac" by Pro Arte, "Nie Przejziemy Do Historii" by Krzysztof Klenczon, "Louis Louis" by Friar Tuck, "Time Of Machines" by Sergio Ferraresi, and "The Shaman's Dance" by Alexandr Sergeyevich.

Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
Way more than just another anthology – as this 2CD collection features a great range of sounds from these legendary synth pop legends – plus some rare mixes and unusual versions too! The collection definitely includes those early 80s singles that made Human League so great – but there's also some of their weird early analogue electronics, too – plus some later tracks that are surprisingly great, and which appear here on CD format for the first time ever – really rounding out the 30 track package in a great way! Titles include "The Dignity Of Labour (part 3)", "Empire State Human", "Fascination (ext version)", "Lebanon (single)", "Hello Louise (DJ edit)", "Sound Of The Crowd (inst)", "Hard Times", "Nightclubbing", "Boys & Girls", "Night People (radio edit)", "Heart Like A Wheel (William Orbit rmx)", "Life On Your Own", "Human (ext version)", "I Need Your Loving (DJ edit)", "Filling Up With Heaven", "Live Is All That Matters (edit)", "Never Let Me Go", "Sky (radio edit)", "Night People (radio)", "Mirror Man", "You Remind Me Of Gold", "Open Your Heart", and of course, "Don't You Want Me".

VariousPhiladelphia International – The Re-Edits ... CD
Philadelphia International/Harmless (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A great take on the sound of Philadelphia International – a double-length set of re-edits of Philly gems from years back – but all done in ways that are completely respectful to the originals! The approach here is wonderful – as warm and soulful as the Philly grooves from back in the day – but often extended and reworked slightly – the way you might have heard on a vintage 12" promo – which is even more impressive once you consider that some of these tracks never came out in that format! The choice of tracks is totally right on the money – and a great demonstration of that old school edit mode that never tried to mess with the track at all – just increase the pleasure it brought to the dancefloor – and the set features 21 very long tracks, including "Satisfaction Guaranteed (Morning Star re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Only The Strong Survive (J*Ski re-edit)" by Billy Paul, "Free Love (Victor Rosado re-edit)" by Jean Carn, "Life On Mars (DJ Mila re-edit)" by Dexter Wansel, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (The Noodleman re-work)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Nights Over Egypt (Womack & TOT re-edit) by The Jones Girls, "Strategy (Touchsoul re-edit)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Let The Dollar Circulate (Scratch N Sniff's ext re-reub)" by Billy Paul, "Darlin Darlin Baby (Deep & Disco re-work)" by The O'Jays, and "Be For Real (Tim McAllister re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.

✨✧ DJ CamMad Blunted Jazz ... CD
Shadow, 1996. Used 2CD ... $12.99
Heavy beats and funky grooves from DJ Cam – recorded back in his more formative years, when his sound was rougher, and more "in the crates"! The album's got a great mix of open-ended samples and jazzy instrumentation – sounding almost like early Greyboy work, but without as much of the jazz solos. Disc 1 features the album Underground Vibes – an instant classic that's been out of print for years – and disc 2 features a live set from 1995. Titles include "Return Of The Jedi", "Sang Lien", "Underground Vibes", "Gangsta Sh*t", "Suckers Never Play That", "Meera", "Lost Kingdom", and "London 1995". CD

Orchestre Poly RythmoMadjafalao ... CD
Because (France), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
Great work from the legendary Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo – a group who've lost none of their power over the years, and who bristle with as much energy here as on their classic albums of the 70s! In fact, there may well be a more-classic vibe going on here, compared to the group's sound as it changed over the years – as the production is simple and straightforward, and free of both any attempt to try for a world music crossover hit, or any effort to "authenticate" the group with a too-rootsy sound. Instead, the whole thing just perfectly captures that wicked current of funk that the group always had at their best – a transformation of the Latin influences that were hitting west Africa in the late 60s, with more of the tightness inspired by James Brown – yet never in a way that's slavish to any influence at all. Titles include "Heritage", "Finlin Ho", "Migbe", "Omonyi", "Baba Djide", "Madjafalao", and "Wangnigni". CD

✨✧ VariousIvory Coast Soul – Afrofunk In Abidjan From 1972 to 1982 ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive music we've never heard before – a really heavy helping of grooves from the Ivory Coast – an African scene that's hardly been tapped by crate diggers and collectors! There's a really fresh feel to the grooves overall – not just the familiar Afro Funk modes, but a nice range of styles that moves between rootsy local numbers through some great crossover styles, through even a few of the African Disco modes that are better known from other scenes! The tracks here are all massively funky – scoured out over the course of a number of different crate-digging trips to the coast – and the package presents the music with great images of the original record covers, too – so that you can still retain some of the feel of the rarity of the work, even though the collection presents things in an easy to handle format. Definitely one for fans of Soundway and Analogue Africa titles – with cuts that include "True Love" by Rato Venance, "Yatchiminou" by Jimmy Hyacinthe, "Kalabuley Woman" by Pierre Antoine, "Mammy Nia" by Nguessan, "Wazi Doble" by Gougoumangou, "Zadie Bobo" by Ernesti Djedje, "Unite" by Moussa Doumbia, "Mon Falou Nan" by Soro N Gana Et L'Orchestre Guilana-na, "Onginwe" by Prince Dgibs, and "Essemon Moupoh" by Jean Guehi.

✨✧ VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.

VariousSuper Animated Breaks & SFX – Mixed By Muro ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from DJ Muro – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how much we love his other projects! This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy cuts that bring together funky rhythms, jazzy solos, weird electronics, and plenty more – all then woven by Muro into this stunning mix of sounds that includes bits from 37 different songs! All the titles and information are in Japanese – but the feel of the set is like some of the best funk soundtrack work you love from the 70s – from American blacksploitation to the best in European cop and crime. And with Muro on the decks, the mix is perfect – done with the same sort of genius as his Fender Rhodes mixes from a few years back! CD

Don PullenRichard's Tune (Solo Piano Album – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or overexpressive in the wrong way – a kind of magical connection between his soul and the piano, with results that are still among some of the greatest in the genre. All tracks are long, and very beautiful – and titles include "Richard's Tune", "Big Alice", "Song Played Backwards", and "Suite (Sweet) Malcolm". Features two unissued bonus tracks – "Kadji" and an alternate of "Big Alice". CD

Lucky ThompsonBrown Rose ... CD
Prevue, 1956. Used ... $9.99
Some of Lucky Thompson's most obscure recordings from the Paris scene of the mid 50s – a great complement to the better-known material issued on the Jazz In Paris and Fresh Sound CDs! The conditions here are similar to those – in that Thompson's working in well-chosen groups with drummer Dave Pochonet, in tightly arranged nonet formation, but in a way that still has Lucky's solo work center stage. The sound is totally great – with lots of those raspy, earthy tones that we love in Thompson's work – and the other players often just complement Lucky in the background, almost as if they were recorded at a slightly lower level. CD features 12 tracks from sessions recorded March 29 and April 17, 1956 – titles that include "Once Upon A Time", "A Sunkissed Rose", "Still Waters", "Brown Rose", "Portrait Of Django", "Distant Sound", "Quick As A Flash", "The Parisian Knight", "Street Scene", and "To You Dear One".

VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.

✨✧ Elek BacsikElectric Guitar Of The Eclectic Elek Bacsik ... CD
Fontana (France), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty groovy tracks recorded by this enigmatic jazz guitarist in France during the early 60s. The format is trio throughout – with 2 different rhythm groups: Kenny Clarke & Pierre Michelot, and Daniel Humair & Michel Gaudry. The tracks are short and tight – with hints of Django, but also some other unique influences that give the guitar work a strangely jangly sound. Titles include "Opus De Funk", "Take Five", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Milestones", and "Nuages". CD

✨✧ Charlie ByrdGuitar Artistry Of Charlie Byrd ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Artistry is a word that's not used lightly here – as the album gives Charlie Byrd plenty of space to show off his deepest talents on the acoustic guitar – in a spare trio setting with Keter Betts on bass and the lesser-known Buddy Deppenschmidt on drums! The format is one that was rare at the time – used for only a handful of virtuoso players, such as Laurindo Almeida – but the setting is a perfect one for Byrd's introspective approach, and gives him plenty of room to illustrate the rich array of influences that go into his sound. Tracks are short, and Byrd's guitar is upfront – and titles include "Django", "Nice Work If You Can Get It", "The House Of The Rising Sun", "Taboo", and "Ring Them Harmonics". CD
