Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 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".

VariousKeb Darge – Best Of Legendary Deep Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
A legendary series gets a great return here – in a special package that brings together all the best cuts from the now-classic Keb Darge Deep Funk compilations! Years before people were digging Daptone, or really giving funky 45s their full due, London DJ Keb Darge created a series of compilations and coined the term "deep funk" – and turned on a whole generation of listeners with his sharp ear for an unusual groove! Plenty of folks had collected soul singles before, but Keb was one of the first to focus exclusively on funk – especially the kind of 45-only, small label releases that barely got any play upon initial release – and which had only become the parlance of a handful of collectors lucky to land a copy. Things really changed when Keb set loose the original series – which not only opened up the music to countless new listeners, but also inspired a wave of new groups, new labels, and new reissues – making for a very different landscape than if he'd never put his collections together. This double-length set does a deep dive back to that series, to bring back some of the best cuts in a razor-sharp format – 21 titles that include "tell Me" by Rickey Calloway, "Love Call" by Ramsey & Company, "Modernization" by Sons Of The Kingdom, "Can We Rap" by Carleen & The Groovers, "Silly Savage" by The Golden Toadstools, "The World" by Sandi & The Matues, "It Ain't Fair But It's Funk (re-edit)" by The Fabulous Originals, "Simple Song" by Zebra, "Cross Bronx Expressway" by Cross Bronx Expressway, "Funk Soul Brother (re-edit)" by Soul Drifter, "Spread Love" by Harris & Orr, "You Got Me Hung Up" by King Tutt, "Free Your Mind" by Record Player, "Psycho" by The Fabulous Mark III, "I Can Deal With That" by Dee Edwards, "Natural" by Leon Gardner, "Contradiction" by Total Experience, "Blueberry Hill" by Joe Washington, "Going Down For The Last Time" by Ronnie Keaton, and "I Wanna Be Loved By You (Kenny Dope re-edit)" by Family Of Eve. 2CD version features a bonus disc – with a non-stop mix of tracks by DJ Mr Thing!

✨✧ Orchestre Poly RythmoMadjafalao ... CD
Because (France), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousSuper Animated Breaks & SFX – Mixed By Muro ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Lucky ThompsonBrown Rose ... CD
Prevue, 1956. Used ... $4.99
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.

✨✧ Don PullenRichard's Tune (Solo Piano Album – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
