✨✧ Dave Baby CortezHappy Organs, Wild Guitars, & Piano Shuffles ... CD
Clock/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stomping organ instrumentals from Dave Baby Cortez – early singles done for the Clock label at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – all of which helped to really find a place for the organ in American pop and soul! Cortez brought a style to the instrument that was as wild as some of the guitarists and saxophonists of his time – a mode that wasn't really jazz, was a bit R&B, and which helped give the organ a much leaner sound than some of its "skating rink" uses in pop during the decade before. Dave's clean style is a great fit for the jaunty, leaping rhythms of these tunes – and other instrumentation includes tenor, guitar, and even a bit of piano, which is featured on a few tracks instead of organ. CD features 25 tracks in all – with titles that include "Piano Shuffle", "The Happy Organ", "Cat Nip", "Hey Hey Hey", "Mari Gras", "Fiesta", "Love Me As I Love you", "The Whistling Organ", "Do The Slop", "You're Just Right", "Riffin", "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie", "Dave's Special", "Red Sails In The Sunset", and "Hurricane".

VariousFunky 8 Corners – All Platinum Club Classics ... CD
All Platinum/Sequel (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
The subtitle of this set should be "All Platinum FUNK Classics" – because this set's pretty darn funky! A few of the tracks on this set have appeared on other recent Sequel reissues of work on All Platinum – but the collection of 20 cuts does a great job of sorting through some of the rarer moments on the label, and brings together some killer funky tracks that have only ever surfaced on funky 45s, or long out of print LPs! The groove runs from raw funk to jazzy club grooves – and titles include "Funkanova" by Wood Brass & Steel, "Cosmic Blues" by Eddie Fisher, "Funky Robot" by Dave Baby Cortez, "Dance To The Music" by The Whatnauts Band, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, "Funk You" by BBP, "Hypertension" by Calender, "(Assistant's Rag) When You're Hot, You're Hot" by Mother Freedom Band, "Dance Girl" by the Rimshots, "Tons Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Is It Funky Enough?" by Communicators & Black Experiences Band, "Always There" by Wood Brass & Steel, and lots lots more! Way better than any other All Platinum set that we've ever stocked, too! CD
