✨✧ Kinsman DazzKinsman Dazz ... LP
20th Century, 1978. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A killer debut from the Dazz Band – issued way back when they were named Kinsman Dazz, and when "dazz" was a reference to the fact that the group could play both dance music and jazz! That jazzy element is definitely in place here – as the set's got lots of hip instrumental touches over the core funky grooves – produced with some great help from Philip Bailey and Ralph Johnson, who bring in a bit of Earth Wind & Fire vibe – and set to some larger arrangements from Patrice Rushen, who ups the jazzy quotient too! But the core sound of the group is what really drives the album – a well-crafted batch of Ohio funky numbers that step along with the best of their generation – on titles that include "Makin Music", "Forget About Lovin You", "Get Down With the Feelin", "Stand In Your Way", "And I Mean", and "Dazzberry Jam". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dazz BandHot Spot ... LP
Motown, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Arguably the biggest hit of the Dazz Band's career – and a monster crossover funk track from the mid 80s! A super fat 80s groove pervades – laid down by plenty of bass pedal riffing, and touched off with jamming guitars, electro keyboards, and a catchy falsetto vocal hook! 12-inch, Vinyl record

BMG/SBK, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dazz BandJoystick/Jukebox ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1983/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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. 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

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
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

✨✧ BrickWaiting On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1980. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked killer from Brick – the group's fourth album, but every bit as tight and funkier as earlier sets! Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves. Titles include "Push Push", "Get Started", "All The Way", "Waiting On You", "Free", "Sweet Lips", and "Let Me Make You Happy". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – "Dazz" and "Dusic", served up in longer 12" versions! CD

VariousLegacy Of Funk (3CD set) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
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.

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".

De-Lite/Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A disco dazzler from the glory days of the De-Lite Records scene – served up here by a group who really hit all the best sort of groove's you'd expect from that legendary imprint! The album's a disco record, sure – but it's also got the deeper roots that come from the De-Lite commitment to earlier 70s funk – co-produced and written by Leroy Burgess and Stan Lucas, both of whom sing on the record – and also get some help from some great female vocalists too! 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 – with that ear to the underground that he always had on his best records. Titles include "Reaching", "Slipped Disco", "It's Not The Same", "Walk Before You Run", and "All". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dudley MooreBedazzled – Original Soundtrack (with bonus CD) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousZanzibara 2 – L'Age D'Or Du Taarab De Mombasa ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Bill Haley & His CometsLive In Paris – 14 & 15 Octobre 1958 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A romping little live set from the great Bill Haley – recorded in Paris during the height of his powers, and issued here for the first time ever! If you only know Haley for his few big hits, or think of him as just a hokey white rocker, you'll really be surprised at the sound of this set – as Bill's group, The Comets, draw as much from R&B as they do from formative rock modes – which means a lot of screaming tenor solos and hard-edged rhythms – as Bill calls out the tunes with both his lyrics and fast-riffing work on guitar – before a French audience that's clearly going wild from the show. The whole thing was done for radio, and is very well-recorded – and the set features 19 titles that include "Giddy Up A Ding Dong", "Rudy's Rock", "Beecher Boogie Woogie", "I'm In Love Again", "Jump Children", "Rock A Beatin Boogie", "Mambo Rock", and "Razzle Dazzle".

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

Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the most obscure Stylistics albums of the 70s – a smooth late 70s modern soul effort, headed up by group soul maestro Teddy Randazzo! Teddy wrote, arranged, and produced the whole set – and the record nicely links together older group harmony styles, especially 60s uptown soul mode, with the more modern approaches that were appearing in the wake of the early 70s super-hit status of The Stylistics and other groups on the scene. The result is an approach that's more mature than the group's earlier work – still sweetly soulful, but also more confident and mature. Titles include "First Impressions", "You're The Best Thing In My Life", "Looking At Love Again", "I Can't Stop Lovin", and "California Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

Most of the music here follows in the best club traditions of Kool & The Gang – the label's most famous act – and Spinna does a great job of keeping the integrity of the cuts, while still creating just the right sort of space to let them effortlessly flow together! Titles include "Color Blind" by Motivation, "I'm Gonna Put A Spell On You" by Leon Bryant, "I Don't Want To Change You" by Crown Heights Affair, "Melodies" by Made In USA, "You've Got To Keep On Bumpin" by Kay-Gees, "Music Is The Word" by Crown Heights Affair, "Casanova" by Coffee, "Reaching" by Dazzle, "Burn Me Up" by Kay-Gees, "Music Is The Message" by Kool & The Gang, "Get Down" by Kay-Gees, and "Galaxy Of Love" by Crown Heights Affair.

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

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 1 – Ikhwani Safaa Musical Club ... CD
Buda (France), 2005. New Copy ... 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

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
