Dazz BandHot Spot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $7.99 13.98
The Dazz Band are in a definite hot spot here – the group's final album for Motown, and a record that's filled with the kind of catchy crossover funk they did better than most! The set snaps into a groove right from the very first note – with that electro funk that Motown served up big in the wake of Rick James, and which the Dazz Band only improve with their rock-solid sound on the set – a mode that has all the instrumental elements coming down sharp on the rhythms, topped by some back/forth group vocals that almost have a Jacksons vibe – except for the tracks in which they get processed with a bit of electro-soul modes! Titles include "If Only You Were In My Shoes", "Hot Spot", "Paranoid", "All The Way", "She Used To Be My Girl", "When You Need Roses", and Slow Rap". This Funky Town Grooves edition has 5 bonus tracks – 12-inch versions and alternate mixes of album tracks and more – including "Hot Spot (Club Mix)", "Heartbeat (12" Version)", "Let It All Blow (Special Disco Remix)", "Swoop (I'm Yours) (12" Version)" and "Joystick (Vocal 12").

Dazz BandJoystick ... LP
Motown, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The Dazz Band brilliantly modernizes their sound for the early-to-mid 80s – without sacrificing the funk one bit on a pair of later Motown albums – '83's Joystick and '84's Jukebox in a single set! As you might guess from the title, on Joystick, Dazz Band thumps and pulses things into a style that's electro and computer groove aware. That said, their background in midwestern funky 70s soul is hardwired into their systems and they bridge the eras masterfully! Titles include "To The Roof", "Joystick", "Until You", "Rock With Me", "Now That I Have You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

As you might guess from the title, on Joystick, Dazz Band thumps and pulses things into a style that's electro and computer groove aware.

On Jukebox, the Dazz Band hit hard with that catchy, synth-heavy groove that marks their other solid Motown work! The album's got all the catchy pop elements you might guess from the time – not as classically funky as the group in their roots, with lots of emphasis on the keyboards and guitar – that crossover Motown soul mode of the mid 80s. Titles include "So Much Love", "Dream Girl", "She's The One", "Heartbeat", "Let It All Blow", "Undercover Lover", and "Main Attraction". CD

Dazz BandRock The Room (with bonus track) ... CD
BMG/PTG (Netherlands), 1988. New Copy ... $9.99
A later set from The Dazz Band, but a great one too – as the group here almost return to their best modes of the early 80s – working with superproducer Deodato in a set of mighty tight grooves! There's a lean, clean funky vibe to the set – that snapping approach to a cut that made the group one of the runaway funk ensembles of their generation, and which comes through very strongly here in Deodato's hands! The record avoids some of the clunkier funk cliches of the period – and the cuts often have this riffing vibe that, while served up in late 80s instrumentation, still really gets back ad the core of what makes the Dazz Band great. Titles include "Anticipation", "Single Girls", "One Time Lover", "Huff & Puff", and "All The Way". CD also features a bonus club mix of "Anticipation" – mighty nice! CD

BrickBest Of Brick ... CD
Epic, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $3.99 6.99
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves. The group has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a bit hit with the kids of their generation, and hip hop sample heads in years to come. This 12 track greatest hits set includes the classic g-funk number "Dusic", plus "Music Magic", "Dazz", "Good High", "Free Happy", "We Don't Wanna Sit Down, We Wanna Get Down", and "Living From The Mind".

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Funk (3CD set) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet set of funky club cuts from the late 70s and early 80s – music that's definitely on the funkier side of the disco spectrum, and which also does a nice job of covering ground from the time before and after the big dancefloor explosion too! This isn't gritty funk, of the funky 45 variety – but instead the tighter, sharper, more mainstream modes that came into play as the 70s moved on – still played by musicians who were at the top of their game, and recorded in ways that allowed all the sharpness of the music to find a new sort of groove! The package includes a few never-issued mixes – including "That's What You Get For Being Polite (DJ Reverent P edit)" by The Jacksons, "Looking Up To You (DJ Reverent P edit)" by Michael Wycoff, "So You Wanna Stay Down (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Isley Brothers, and "Rockin After Midnight (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Marvin Gaye – plus the cuts "Till You Take My Love (12" mix)" by Harvey Mason, "Love Is Always On Your Mind (12" mix)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Brazilian Love Affair" by George Duke, "Dazz (Dazz disco mix)" by Brick, "Joy To Have Your Love" by Patti LaBelle, "Remote Control" by The Reddings, "Play That Funky Music White Boy" by Wild Cherry, "Haboglabotribin" by Bernard Wright, "Get It Right" by Aretha Franklin, "Sun Goddess" by Ramsey Lewis, "The Groove" by Rodney Franklin, "I've Had Enough" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Hurry Up & Wait" by The Isley Brothers, "Coming To You Live" by Charles Earland, "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "Risin To The Top" by Keni Burke, and "Do It Any Way You Wanna (Tom Moulton mix)" by People's Choice.

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The woman on the cover might look like she was kicked out of some anime-based rave, but the music on the set is classic 80s soul all the way through – served up in the blend of warmly-grooving styles we've come to expect from this long-running series! The Nighttime Lovers sets always feature something special, and something new – a few classic cuts, mixed with other 80s soul numbers that we somehow missed at the time – all awash in musical modes that are catchy, but never too poppy or commercial. Titles include "Intervention" by Lavine Hudson, "Stalemate" by Mac Band, "Don't Wanna Be A Sometime Lover" by Sylvia Smith, "Shake It Up" by Dazz Band, "Something Special" by Steve Harvey, "Can You Feel The Beat" by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force, "Tuff" by Midnight Star, "Get Loose" by Evelyn King, "Come & Get My Lovin" by Sunrize, and "Hold me Tight" by Robert White.

Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some great tracks from the years beyond Studio 54 – including a few choice import groovers that played big on American dancefloors – the sort of shifting sounds that took over once the second wave of British invasion hit US clubs after the decline of disco! The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this first volume features a continuous mix 30 tracks that include "She's A Bad Mama Jama" by Carl Carlton, "Love's Dance" by Klique, "Funtime" by Peaches & Herb, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Glad To Know You" by Chaz Jankel, "Look Of Love" by ABC, "Got To BE Enough" by Con Funk Shun, "It Must Be Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let It Whip" by Dazz Band, "Give It To Me Baby" by Rick James, "I'm So Hot" by Denise LaSalle, "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow, and "Saturday Saturday Night" by Zoom.

A really great disco groover from the glory days of the De-Lite scene – co-produced and written by Leroy Burgess and Stan Lucas, both of whom sing on the record! Although the cover makes the album look a bit like a throwaway set, the overall quality is very high, and quite soulful – thanks to strong work by Burgess and Patrick Adams, who also does a bit of arrangement. Titles include "Reaching", "Slipped Disco", "It's Not The Same", "Walk Before You Run", and "All". CD

Dudley MooreBedazzled – Original Soundtrack (with bonus CD) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic soundtrack for an incredibly groovy film – a landmark British comedy that received some sublime musical treatment from Dudley Moore – who was one of the stars of the movie! Moore's a surprisingly great jazz pianist, and provides a rich blend of jazz instrumentals, groovy larger cuts, and a few wild vocal tracks with a mad mad sound! The album's well-remembered for the fuzzy-breakbeat classic "Bedazzled" and Peter Cook's vocal on the mad rocker "Love Me" – and other tracks are a perfect blend of styles that recall the best of Henry Mancini or Neal Hefti from the same time – the best 60s blend of jazz, mod, and loungey styles. Titles also include "The Millionaire", "Moon Time", "Strip Club", "Sweet Mouth", and "Cornfield", a lively jazzy groover! Especially incredible in this Trunk LP version is the bonus CD that it comes with – featuring uber-rare, improvised promotional radio spots made by Moore & Cook just days before the film's release – titled Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Cordially Invite You To Go To Hell! LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1979. Very Good ... $3.99
Man, these guys never seem to miss – and always come up with some great little tunes that snap along in a really compelling way! This album might be easy to overlook in favor of the band's bigger classics, but it's a stone winner all the way through – with a number of tunes that groove on beautifully with tight hooks, skipping beats, warm vocals, and that beautifully compressed production style that always gave Heatwave a sound that slide perfectly into an AM soul radio groove. And sure, there's a few hooks here that feel like they're "borrowed" from some of the bigger hits – but they work wonderfully as a reprise of greatness, and keep us half stepping into the album even more. Titles include "Razzle Dazzle", "Eyeballin", "Raise A Blaze", "First Day Of Snow", "One Night Tan", "All Talked Out", "Disco", and "Therm Warfare". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the nice albums that Little Anthony recorded after moving to Veep during the mid 60's. By this point, the group was recording a little bit more pop stuff than they used to on their old records, but their harmonies were still great, and they were also cutting a lot of other great original tracks that were written for them by Teddy Randazzo, who also produced and arranged. Cuts include "I'm On the Outside (Looking In)", "Please Go", "Our Song", and a remake of their classic "Tears On My Pillow". LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy Randazzo handled the arrangements and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. 10 tracks in all, including "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Back", "Better Use Your Head", "The Wonder Of It All", "Reputation", "You Better Take It Easy Baby", "Please Go" and "Goin' Out Of My Head".

Meshell NdegeocelloComfort Woman ... CD
Maverick, 2003. Used ... $2.99
Another dazzling batch of tunes from Meshell Ndegeocello – an incredible songwriter and performer who may have peaked commercially a few years back, but she is still maturing in ways that stretch far, far beyond the chart singles she scored in the past! The woman has never put out the same album twice; she kicked our collective arse last year with the dense, sinister hip hop funk of Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape. This time around she takes a celestial soul approach, with a lot of sweet and wispy, echoey flange guitar and vox organ in place of the gritty funk howl of the previous album. The album kind of comes of as a mix of sensual soul grooves, with all of the tripped out, drivingly mellow feel of our favorite forward-looking soul and jazz albums of the 70s and 80s. Still, this is an altogether modern and unique album that succeeds much more for the personality of the artist than it does for the bits of influence she's picked up throughout the years. Honestly, one of the very best soul albums we've heard on a major label in '03; we can only hope that the honchos at Maverick/WEA have an inkling of the depth of talent this woman carries around! Tracks include "Love Song (Pts 1, 2 and 3)", "Come Smoke My Herb", "Body", "Liliquoi Mood", "Fellowship", Good Intentions", "Faithful" and more. CD

Sam RiversContrasts ... LP
ECM, 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A beautifully avant session from ECM – and a great late 70s showcase for the reed talents of the great Sam Rivers! The album's got a mixture of focus and freedom that makes it one of Sam's best from this period – a group outing that features Rivers on tenor, soprano, and flute – in a quartet that features exceptional work on trombone from George Lewis, plus Dave Holland on bass and Thurman Barker on drums. And while the music has some of the open, improvised feel of Rivers' other 70s material – it's also got some of the sharper structure that we love in his earliest 60s work too – kind of a redefinition of "new thing" modes via fresh ideas explored in the loft jazz years. The album's a real standout in ECM from the time – and titles include "Circles", "Zip", "Solace", 'Dazzle", "Images", and "Lines". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGirls Gonna Bop – Rockin Girls From The Late 50s ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Great female rock from the end of the 50s – music that's got a mighty strong influence from rockabilly, hillbilly bop, and a fair bit of R&B – not to mention some of the bigger male singers of the time! Some of these cuts are covers, some are answer songs, and some are especially nice originals – and together, they offer up a hard-rocking set of all-gal tunes that are quite different from some of the sweeter pop material of the time! Take Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin as a starting point – then let your imagination run wild as the set opens up into a great range of singles from a variety of scenes – all unified by a no-nonsense sort of vibe. Titles include "Flipsville" by Stormy Gayle, "Move it On Over" by Rose Maddox, "Buddy" by Jackie Dee, "Razzle Dazzle" by Ella May Morse, "Black Cadillac" by Joyce Green, "Sentimental Fool" by Barbara Pittman, "Rocky Rolly Lover Boy" by Judy Faye, "Chili Dippin Baby" by Joyce Poynter, "He's A Real Gone Guy" by Anita Carter, "Just Whistle Or Call" by Martha Carson, "We're Gonna Bop" by Alvadean Coker, "Mercy" by Lorrie & Larry Collins, "Sugar Lump" by Patsy Ruth Elshire, and "Counting Sheep Over You" by Linda Glover.

VariousZanzibara 2 – L'Age D'Or Du Taarab De Mombasa ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Prepare to be blown away! The second volume of the excellent new Zanzibara series focuses on taraab music recorded on the tiny island-city of Momabasa – off the Kenyan coast – for the Mzuri label between 1965-1975. Unlike the more traditional, languorous taraab made in nearby Zanzibar, Mombasa taraab reveals a stronger African rhythmic attack and a diminished Arabic feel. But the real charm is the strong Bollywood influence! Indian cinema was a popular attraction beginning in the 30s, and some of the songs here are loose interpretations of certain film scenes. Each group prominently features either accordion or harmonium, but the most ingenious sound is provided by the tashkota, a Japanese string instrument the musicians amplified for a dazzling, twangy tone – in addition to the usual violins, hand percussion, oud, and fantastic, soulful vocals. The booklet includes great liner notes and wonderful photographs, too. Sixteen tracks in all by Matano Juma & Morning Star Orchestra, Yasseen Mohamed, Zuhura & Party, Ali Mkali & Mvita Orchestra, Zein Musical Party, Maulidi Musical Party, and Bin Brek. CD

Buda (France), 2005. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic new series from the folks behind the great Ethiopiques collection. Zanzibara focuses on the rich mother lode of neglected music from Swahili east Africa – Tanzania, Zanzibar,and the Comoros Islands. This first volume features gorgeous new recordings by the Ikhwani Safaa Musical Club, Zanibar's oldest taraab orchestra, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2005! When the group – which is really a kind of social club as its title suggests – formed, Zanzibar was a bustling international city, and while taraab draws most heavily from classic Egyptian music, there are also heady traces of Indian and Turkish music, with more lively African rhythms and Swahili poetry. It's a beautiful, hypnotic sound unlike anything else – lush strings, accordion, oud, hand percussion, and qanun percolate with stately grace, providing wonderful instrumental support for a raft of dazzling singers with decades of experience. Tracks include "Cheo Chako", "Hofu Yako Iondoe", "Zinduna", "Mpenzi Wangu Hawerzi", and "Naomba Kwako Bibiye". CD

Sterns (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An awe-inspiring mother lode of classic Guinean grooves from one of Africa's greatest bands! Senegal's Orchestra Baobab have become the media favorite of Africa's golden era, but it only takes one spin of this fabulous anthology to realize that Bembeya Jazz National were as good as any band the continent ever produced. As the title says, this material is culled from the recordings the band made for the great state-owned Syliphone label, and it reflects an era of dazzling creative potency – sensual Afro-Cuban tropes are blended into a powerful mix of Mande melodies, sashaying grooves, and jaw-dropping solos. Most of this collection features lead vocals by the sweet and soulful Aboubacar Demba Camara, who died in a tragic car accident in 1973, while the prodigiously talented Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate unspools one astonishing lead after another. A still-powerful version of the group reunited in 2001, but nothing can match these recordings. Truly essential stuff! Tracks include "Dembaty Galant", "Waraba", "Super Tentemba", "Fatoumata", and "Sina Mousso". CD

✨✧ SuicideAlan Vega/Martin Rev ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A second album of sorts from Suicide – but one that came out a long four years after their seminal debut, at a time when all of the groups that Suicide had influenced had grown up on their own to fill up the underground! Yet the duo of Martin Rev and Alan Vega are still way ahead of the pack here – and even production by Ric Ocasek can't smooth their edges or dampen their madness, or bog them down in any sort of new wave cliches! Instead, it just feels like they've upgraded their electronics a bit, and maybe put a slight bit of care into the recording of Vega's vocals – without messing with the mix too much. Titles include "Harlem", "Be Bop Kid", "Diamonds Fur Coat Champagne", "Fast Money Music", "Sweetheart", "Mr Ray", and "Shadazz". LP, Vinyl record album
