✨✧ De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody ... CD
AOI, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

Brothers TwoBoogaloo (Soul) Party/You Got It ... 7-inch
Crimson, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Sock-soul from the Brothers Two! The pair are somewhere between the Simtec & Wylie and Mel & Tim mode – working here as a hard-hitting duo with a heavy soul groove that also has a nice little kick at the bottom! "Boogaloo Party" is every bit as soul-boogaloo as you'd expect – upbeat and with a really nice groove that fits in well with the vocals – but we like "You Got It" even better! The cut begins with a very catchy dangling guitar part – sneaking around the strings while bass and drums dance it up in a playful De La kind of groove, enjoying themselves so much that the Brothers don't even get a chance to sing on the cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Raul De SouzaDon't Ask My Neighbors ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1978. Used ... $13.99
A tremendous moment for trombonist Raul De Souza – working here in a style that's light years past his roots in bossa nova! The set's got a heavy California vibe – a late 70s blend of jazz and soul handled by producer George Duke, who also arranges many tracks on the record – but still leaves plenty of room for Raul to step out strongly in the lead! Things are never too overdone, and handled with that sunny style that players like Duke did so well – lots of warm jazzy elements in the backings, coming from Fender Rhodes by Bobby Lyle, percussion from Airto, and drums from the great Harvey Mason – who really brings an edge to some of the groovers. Titles include a killer cover of the Skip Scarborough tune "Don't Ask My Neighbors" – plus "La La Song", "Overture", "At The Concert", "I Believe You", and "Jump Street". CD

✨✧ Ahmed MalekMusique Original De Films – Algeria's Ennio Morricone ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Algerian film composer Ahmed Malek – an artist who has an awful lot of jazz in his music as well! The music here isn't just the usual sort of soundtrack style you might expect – and instead, Malek mixes jazzy instrumentation with more regional currents that create some nicely exotic moments – plus a bit of funk, which comes across as a really nice surprise, and almost makes some of the best cuts feel like our favorite work from Salah Ragab! There's a great saxophonist on some of these tracks – blowing a deep-toned tenor that opens up with a lot of soul – and the mix of modes is really wonderful, and extremely fresh – with a sonic range that's way more than you'd expect from the "Morricone" tagline on the cover. A real ear-opening discovery – with cuts that include "La Ville", "Les Vacances De L'Inspecteur Tahar", "Autopsie D'Un Complot", "Un Toit Et Une Famille", "Omar Gatlato", and "Tikjda".

✨✧ Martinho Da VilaDe Bem Com A Vida ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Instantly timeless work from Martinho Da Vila – a set that's every bit as powerful as his classic albums from the 70s – and done with an even more personal sound! Martinho first rose to fame at a time when there was a big wave of new samba recordings in Brazil – a mode that still held onto the roots, but also pushed the music with a fullness in terms of production – never too commercial, yet still quite different than the approach used here – which is very intimate, and maybe makes the album one of the singer's most impressive ever! The passage of years has only made Martinho's vocals better, and amidst the spare percussion and stringed instrumentation, he really carries the sound of the record beautifully – making us feel as if we've stumbled upon to his genius all over again, but at an even more powerful level. Titles include "Samba Sem Letra", "Amanha E Sabado", "Danadinho Danado", "Choro Chorao", "Soul Brasileiro", "Muita Luz", "Sarava Sarava", and "Daqui De La E De Acola". CD

✨✧ VariousNeo Blue-Eyed Soul – AOR Style ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title more than gives this one away – and the album's a great exploration of that growing global underground who've turned back towards the 70s, to re-embrace and re-invent the smooth contemporary sound of the decade! You might know a few names on here from the Dusty Groove racks – like Ed Motta or Jarrod Lawson – but many artists are ones we've not heard before, and offer up a stunning selection of tracks that may well beat some of our LA studio gems from the big labels. The vocals are wonderfully soulful – more than you might even expect – and the production is sublime – not commercial, but a cool reworking of older crossover modes with a leaner 21st Century aesthetic! Titles include "I Recall" by Andre Solomko, "Red Casette" by Mama's Gun, "Someone" by Moonstones, "Leblon" by Adam Dunning, "He's There" by Jarrod Lawson, "Some Say" by We'll Make It Right, "The Masquerade Is Over" by Pieter De Graaf with Benny Sings, "Garota" by Erlend Oye, "Hangover" by Roos Jonker, "Smile" by Ed Motta, "Always On The Run" by Roman Andren, "Always Belong To You" by Michelle Sparrow, and "You're Out Of Business" by Smooth Reunion.

✨✧ FusionTop Soul ... CD
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the blend of the latter, especially in the way more local percussion riffs fill out grooves that have a solid grounding in American funk! Instrumentation listed is tenor, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but there's clearly a lot more horns too, as well as some very hip percussion – played in ways that are almost more Brazilian than straight Latin – with a really fluid sensibility that jams nicely with the grooves. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the album is instrumental – and titles include versions of Sly Stone's "Thank You" and The Crusaders "Way Back Home" – plus "Dedos", "Balada De Matias", "Dee Blooz", "Para Toda La Gente", "Pulsearas", and "Lamentation".

✨✧ VariousTurntables On The Caribbean ... CD
Wonderwheel, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet take on the Turntables On The Hudson series – presented by Nickodemus with a nice sense of Latin in the mix! The music here all resonates with that new wave of 21st Century club that started to draw in elements from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and other points sunny and south – and the music is by a great selection of artists from the funky underground, some of whom appear on each other's tracks here – which gives a further sort of unified vibe to the music. Titles include "A Pesar La Vida" by Ocote Soul Sounds with Chico Mann & Quantic, "Aguacero" by Captain Planet with Chico Mann, "Mongulu" by Garifuna Collective, "La Ciudad De La Eterna Primavera" by Corrado Bucci & Los Corraleros De Majagual, "Manana Tepotzlan" by El Buho, "El Pugero" by Quimica, "Pale Mal" by Poirier featuring Fwonte, "Celebration Of Oggun (Yoruba Soul mix)" by Sunlightsquare, "Aguanile (Jose Marquez mix)" by Willie Colon, and "Baila A Tu Manera (Whiskey Barons rmx)" by Nickodemus with Sammy Ayala.

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic Acid LP. The record has Ray cutting across many genres – blending Latin, soul, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – all into a set of grooves that never stops pleasing, and which will make you start digging through the Latin racks like mad, just to find another LP this great! Titles include "Hard Hands", "Abidjan", "Got to Have You", "New York Soul", and the fantastic track "Love Beads", which has a cool rolling piano line that sounds like a great De La Soul sample. It's a great track, and makes the entire album worth the price! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CokeCoke ... LP
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! LP, Vinyl record album

Detroit EmeraldsDo Me Right/You Want It You Got It (plus bonus track) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of killers back to back on a single CD – two Westbound albums by The Detroit Emeralds! Do Me Right is a gem of a record from the mighty Detroit Emeralds – a group who are really finding a new 70s vibe here, while still holding onto all the rich harmonies they developed on their early singles! The trio work here together with a fluid sound and the kind of harmonies you might have heard from The Impressions a few years before – but they also get a really unique groove that befits their presence on Detroit's legendary Westbound label – a style that's maybe a bit more heady, and sometimes righteous! Titles include the classic title cut "Do Me Right", the great loping groover "Lee", and the cuts "Holding On", "I Can't See Myself", and "What You Gonna Do About Me". Next up Is You Want It You Got It – an early 70s gem from the group! Detroit had plenty of great harmony groups in the 60s – but by the early 70s, The Detroit Emeralds were right on top – a feat that was easy to do with work this great! The trio have a fantastic approach here – a bit of the psychedelic soul sound of the Norman Whitfield generation, but also some warmer, sweeter harmonies too – a bit of an east coast vibe that really stands out – and which is done by the group at a level that's way better than most of their contemporaries! Arrangements are by group member Abe Tilmon, and very hip – and titles include the group's great take on "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms", which has a great sample used by De La Soul – plus "You Want It You Got It", "Feel The Need In Me", "There's love For Me Somewhere", "Till You Decide To Come Home", and "I've Got To Move". CD also features a bonus radio promo spot too! CD

✨✧ Roberto FonsecaABUC ... CD
Impulse, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
One of the most hard-hitting albums we've ever heard from pianist Roberto Fonseca – a set that deeply digs back into an older Afro-Cuban sound – as you might guess from the title's backward-spelling of Cuba! The music here is surprisingly rich and full – not just Cuban flavoring on jazz piano lines, but a well-conceived, fully-formed approach that mixes Roberto's fierce piano lines with larger percussion and horns, and some very strong acoustic bass from Yandy Martinez – which really drives the harder-grooving songs in a great way! We're often a bit suspicious of projects like this, but we're totally in love with this record – as there's a vibe that's at once respectful of the classics, but totally brand-new – and produced to perfection, without any fakeness or gimmicks at all. Titles include "Soul Guardians", "Sagrado Corazon", "Family", "Tierra Santa", "Tumbao De La Unidad", "Afro Mambo", and "Asere Monina Bonco". CD

Juarez E Seu ConjuntoO Inimitavel Juarez ... CD
Masterplay/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... $11.99
Amazing bossa jazz from Brazilian tenor saxophonist Juarez – a record that moves and grooves with an even harder edge than any American session of the type from the time – with lots of raw percussion that sounds really great next to the soulful tenor! The album's quite early in the years for bossa jazz – and has a wonderfully fluid, wonderfully clear sort of groove – one that's got piano, bass, drums, and loads of great percussion on the bottom – and these freewheeling tenor lines from Juarez that are filled with soul, swing, and imagination! There's way more here than just a soloist blowing lines over rhythms of familiar standards – and the set features titles that include "Julgamento", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Suplica", "I'll Get By", "Al Di La", "Indiscretion", and "O Menino Desce O Morro".

MandrillComposite Truth/Just Outside Of Town ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of funky classics – back to back on a single CD! Composite Truth is one of the greatest records ever from Mandrill – a set that has the group tightening things up and getting even more funky than on their first few records, but with a vibe that's still nicely loose and spontaneous overall! The set's got Mandrill perfectly balanced between jazz-tinged funk and tighter soul – with loads of wonderful instrumental elements that have lead to the set being a heavy sample favorite over the years – used shamelessly by artists who include De La Soul, Cypress Hill, Schooly D, Ice Cube, and others! The horns are great, and never hokey at all – and the vocals nicely take second seat next to the rhythms, which are a tremendous blend of funk, jazz, and both New Orleans and Latin elements. Titles include the massive "Fencewalk", plus "Hagalo", "Polk Street Carnival", "Moroccan Nights", "Golden Stone", "Hang Loose", and "Don't Mess with People". Just Outside Of Town is really tremendous work from Mandrill – an instant funky classic, and a set that has the group furthering the sublime sound they crafted on their seminal Composite Truth! The record has all these wonderful twists and turns – not just the usual 70s funky styles, but inflections from a globe's worth of influences – all filtered down and used here in fresh new ways to really keep the sound interesting – with a tightness that's never slick, and which instead has this really visionary approach that may well top some of Mandrill's higher-charting contemporaries! Instrumentation has plenty of jazz inflections, which really keeps things interesting – and the percussion has so many different styles going on, it's hard to keep track! Titles include the massive sample cut "Fat City Strut" – plus "Never Die", "Two Sisters Of Mystery", "She Ain't Lookin Too Tough", "Interlude", "Mango Meat", "Afrikus Retrospectus", and "Aspiration Flame".

Medallions Featuring Vernon GreenSpeedin' ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Wonderful west coast vocal group work from Vernon Green & The Medallions – a group who were rooted in doo wop, but who also step out here with a sound that paves the way for plenty of soul as well! There was something different about some of these great LA groups from the 50s – a quality that was often tighter than some of the more street corner work of the east coast – a sensibility that really comes through in vocals like this, which seem to be striving even further for a powerful punch in the overall package! Green's lead really gives the harmonies something to focus around – and the tracks are a great mix of playful numbers and more heartbreaking tunes – with titles that include "Shedding Tears For You", "Unseen", "Give Me The Right", "Dear Darling", "59 Volvo", "Buick 59", "Coup De Ville Baby", "Push Button Automobile", "Rocket Ship", "The Telegram", and "I Wonder Wonder Wonder".

The early 90s classic by The Pharcyde – the group's high water mark – and one of the greatest hip hop albums of the era! Along with Del and the Souls Of Mischief, Pharcyde were one of the few West Coast units to achieve any kind of widespread popularity using the uniquely loopy, funhouse kinda of vibe of De La Soul, Black Sheep and Tribe Called Quest in their lighter moments. This has always been a tough one to find on wax, particularly in the high quality 2 LP incarnation, so we're thrilled to see this one back on the market!

Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever – a lost gem from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray and the group are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge – and featuring tracks that include "Sunny", "Soul Freedom", "Cookie Crumbs", "De Eso Nada Monada", "Lo Sabia", "Venimos Acabando", "La Pena", and "La Senorita Lola".

Prime 70s work from Horace Andy – recorded in this laidback, soul-drenched style that almost recalls the Kingston sound of a few years before! The setting is very earthy and up-close – a perfect placement for Andy's really unique vocals, which almost approximate some of the more interesting male soul vocalists of the east coast scene of the time – particularly those at the higher end of the spectrum. Horace lilts up and down beautifully – over grooves recorded at Channel One, Black Ark, Dynamic Sound, and Randys – on titles that include "Roots Of All Evil", "Sexy Jean", "Let Your Teardrops Fall", "Get Wise", "Today Youth", "Feel Good", "Eighty Percent Badness", and "I Don't Want To Be Outside".

✨✧ Johnny BristolModern Soul Classics 1974 to 1981 ... CD
Playback, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Johnny Bristol first got his start at Motown – where both his songwriting skills and studio talents graced an excellent range of singles and album tracks in the late 60s – but as the 70s moved in, Bristol really became a strong singer on his own – with a fantastic sound that we'd rank right up there with the best of the period, even though Johnny never fully got his due! In a way, Bristol was a bit like Lamont Dozier – another background talent who turned out an equally fine range of records as a solo star – and like Dozier, Johnny always remained his own man throughout his solo years – never giving into easy commercial tricks, or overdone disco cliches. Instead, the man was pure class, all the way through – with an especially strong ability to hit a mellow soul groove that's maybe rivaled only by Leroy Hutson or a rare few others. This package collects together all the best of those solo cuts, most of them sweet midtempo steppers or warm mellow numbers – with titles that include "Lusty Lady", "Go On & Dream", "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do", "Have Yourself A Good Time", "She's So Amazing", "I'm Waiting On Love", "Strangers In The Dark Corners", "Love No Longer Has A Hold On Me", "Take Me Down", "Till I See You Again", "I'm So Proud Of You", "Hold ON To Love", "Do It To My Mind", and "Woman Woman".

Johnny Bristol first got his start at Motown – where both his songwriting skills and studio talents graced an excellent range of singles and album tracks in the late 60s – but as the 70s moved in, Bristol really became a strong singer on his own – with a fantastic sound that we'd rank right up there with the best of the period, even though Johnny never fully got his due! In a way, Bristol was a bit like Lamont Dozier – another background talent who turned out an equally fine range of records as a solo star – and like Dozier, Johnny always remained his own man throughout his solo years – never giving into easy commercial tricks, or overdone disco cliches. Instead, the man was pure class, all the way through – with an especially strong ability to hit a mellow soul groove that's maybe rivaled only by Leroy Hutson or a rare few others. This package collects together all the best of those solo cuts, most of them sweet midtempo steppers or warm mellow numbers – with titles that include "Lusty Lady", "Go On & Dream", "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do", "Have Yourself A Good Time", "She's So Amazing", "I'm Waiting On Love", "Strangers In The Dark Corners", "Love No Longer Has A Hold On Me", "Take Me Down", "Till I See You Again", "I'm So Proud Of You", "Hold ON To Love", "Do It To My Mind", and "Woman Woman".

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – Mar-V-Lus Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest labels on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s – part of the larger One-Der-Ful family of imprints, and equally important as the flagship company! Mar-V-Lus cut some of the hippest work in the Windy City at the time – deeply soulful singles that were really at the cusp of the scene, and which also had a fair bit of funk in the mix as well – the grittier side of Chicago soul that really represented the true sound of the underground! And although some of the Mar-V-Lus label material has been reissued over the years, this package uncovers 10 never-issued tracks, and mixes them with 15 more gems that only ever came out as rare indie singles – making for over two dozen Chicago soul treasures, packaged here with a very detailed set of notes. The package is another great step in this six-volume series – and completely essential listening, even to long-trained Chicago soul ears like ours! Unreleased tracks include "For You My Love" by Josephine Taylor, "Sad Souvenirs" by The Ulti-mations, "I Feel Good All Over" by Baby Miracles, "I Want A Man" by Josephine Taylor, "If You Need Me" by The Du-Ettes, "Sweatin" by Alvin Cash, "Stop Call The Cop" by The Du-Ettes, and "Your Love Picks Me Up" by Josephine Taylor – and other titles include "Love Is A Good Thing Goin" by The Blenders, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Johnny Sayles, "I Still Can't Get You" by Joseph Moore, "Joey" by The Young Folk, "Philly Freeze" by Alvin Cash, "You're Gonna Be Sorry" by Cicero Blake, "Would I Do It Over" by The Ulti-mations, "Lonely Girl" by Miss Madeline, and "Whole Lot Of Lovin" by Johnny Sayles.

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – One-Der-Ful Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unassuming cover, but a set that's got a really colorful batch of rare Chicago soul – including a number of never-issued tracks from the legendary One-Der-Ful Records! The label was one of the true indie greats in Chicago back in the 60s – almost as much a force for local soul as bigger imprints like Chess, Okeh, and Brunswick – and home to an equally great array of artists – including a few who'd later hit big on different labels! The work here is all the handiwork of the Leaner brothers, who not only recorded most of the cuts here – but also helped distribute One-Der-Ful and a host of other midwestern indies – which really gave them a great ear for the best sounds coming from the underground, and the new trends that were breaking big way before the rest of the country picked them up. And although there have been other collections of One-Der-Ful material before, this one may well be the most thoughtful – from the detailed notes on the label and each artist, to the research that uncovered never-issued tracks that include "Happy Times" by Beverly Shaffer, "Enjoy Yourself" by The Five Du-Tones, "I'm Guilty" by Liz Lands, "Thank You Love" by Otis Clay, "Now That You're Gone" by McKinley Mitchell, "Meet Me Halfway" by Beverly Shaffer, "Take Me To Your Leader" by The Sharpees, "When You Get That Feeling" by The Five Du-Tones, "Got To Find A Way (alt)" by Otis Clay, "Seventh Hour" by Liz Lands, and "Here Comes My Baby" by Mary Silvers. The set features lots more great cuts too – including "Who Is She" by Lucky Laws, "The Prettiest Girl" by Joe & Mack, "The Sock" by The Sharpees, "All For You" by the Admirations, and "The Man Of The Town" by Jay Jordan.

✨✧ VariousOther Philadelphia Disco Delights ... CD
Essential, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
New York may have been ground zero during the disco generation – but as most folks know, lots of the best sounds came from Philadelphia – and kept on coming even in the years after the flames had died down at Studio 54! This set's a great tribute to the long legacy of disco sounds from Philly – and it moves past the hits from bigger labels like Philadelphia International or Salsoul, to include some overlooked gems and the kinds of cuts that show that the best disco elements were always handled best in the City Of Brotherly Love! As with other titles on the Essential label, the notes are a bit spare, but the song choices are excellent – and titles include "You're What's Missin In My Life" by Buddy Turner, "Simple Things You Do" by Ruth Silky Waters, "Baby Baby I'm Yours" by Carol Lloyd, "Morning Music" by Siren, "Bust It" by Craig Snynder & Lix, "Dario Can You Get Me Into Studio 54" by Dana & Gene, "Power Of Love" by Wardell Piper, "Can't Hold On" by Doris Troy, "Don't Want No Other Lover (disco version)" by Touch Of Class, "Never Stop Loving You" by Caviar, "Dance With Me" by Tangerue, and "When Love Is New" by Arthur Prysock.

✨✧ VariousPunk 45 – Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio Punk & The Decline Of The Midwest 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Cleveland was one of the coolest cities in the punk rock underground of the late 70s – and was proof that groundbreaking music didn't just come from New York or LA at the time! This batch of rare Cleveland material is arguably some of the hippest, most interesting work of the whole indie scene of the US during the period – really amazing stuff that doesn't just grab a few simple chords to play fast and loud, and which instead goes for the kind of unusual styles, sounds, and timings that were only used by the few most forward-thinking acts of the UK post-punk scene. Some of these groups are still working a very strong influence on musicians today – and for good reason too – and this volume may well be the best of the whole Punk 45 series on Soul Jazz – with great liner notes from Jon Savage on the scene and the songs! Titles include "Love Meant To Die" by Jazz Destroyers, "Street Where Nobody Lives" by The Pagans, "Tele K Killing" by The Broncs, "Splitter Splat" by Electric Eels, "Final Solution" by Pere Ubu, "No" by Human Switchboard, "A" by X-X, "Everything Near Me" by Styrene Money, "Life Stinks" by Rocket From The Tombs, and "Drano In Your Veins" by Poli Styrene Jass Band.

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Latin Disco (with bonus download) ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funk and soul meet Latin rhythms – and the result is a really special moment in the New York scene – a time when disco rhythms helped the underground scene burn brightly in the midtown clubs! Back in the 60s, nightspots in the city would routinely host Latin bands – but by the disco generation, much of the Latin action had retreated uptown – until grooves like these got things going again in a whole new light – returning the artists to a wider audience through a swirling blend of strings, jazzy instrumentation, and soulful vocals! The style's one that was so strong back in the day, it's had plenty of power over the years – and the set here also brings together some later variants of Latin disco from around the globe. Titles include "Sunny" by Yambu, "Salsoul Hustle" by Salsoul Orchestra, "La Botella" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "C'Mon Baby Do The Latin Hustle" by Jose Fajardo, "Combate A Kung Fu" by Wganda Kenya, Firewalker" by Jungle Fire, and "Everlasting Love" by Los Charly's Orchestra.

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of obscure 45 material and rare album tracks from the archives of the legendary Money/Cash labels! Money Records was a huge beacon for somewhat rough-edged driving soul, when it found its niche on the LA scene in the early 60s. Amazing artists that never fully got their due – stars like Bettye Swann, the Larks (aka Pretenders), the Question Marks, King Solomon, Sonny Herman, and tons of others – many with roots in late 50s doo wop and r&b, recorded endearingly rawer singles for the label in the 60s, and stayed as it progressed into more of a smooth, slightly more polished and groovy sound in the early 70s. 24 tracks – most of which are pretty darn hard to track down on vinyl! Includes "Too Much For You" by Bobby Angelle, "What About Me" by Sonny Herman, "Temptation Walk" by the Larks, "Separation" by King Solomon, "You Gave Me Love" by Bettye Swann, "Baby" by Ted "Soul" Hawkins, "Lil' Valley" by M&M and the Peanuts, "Dancing With My Baby" by the T-K-O's, and tons more. Includes an excellent booklet with great photos, bios, and notes on the production and arrangements! CD

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records Vol 2 ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from the LA underground of the late 60s – a motherlode of work from west coast indie Money Records! The label is every bit as hip as you'd guess from its name – a right on the money blend of the best elements in soul at the time – all served up with some of the tightest production west of the Mississippi, and an undeniable ear for the grittiest side of a groove. There's plenty of great twists and turns to many of these tracks – and in a way, the Money sound of this time reminds us a fair bit of the best work coming from Detroit indies operating in the shadows of Motown. Yet the grooves here are also a fair bit fresher because they're often less familiar – never over-compiled like some of the Motor City tracks, and perfectly presented here with top-shelf Kent Soul standards, both in the mastering and notes that go with the set! Titles include a few previously unissued numbers – with 24 tracks that include "Losing You" by Eddie Horan, "I Thought It Over" by Gwenn Stewart, "My Belief" by The MM's & The Peanuts, "Too Late Now" by The Mysteries, "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" by Eric Williams, "Living A Lie" by Bobby Angelle, "Love Insurance" by Henry Strogin, "The Dance Is Over" by Bettye Swann, "Lost My Love Yesterday" by The Larks, "Ain't That Kinda Sad" by The Question Marks, "Should I Take A Chance" by Ted Walters, "Tam A Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs, and "You Bet I Would" by Pat Livingston.

✨✧ VariousSouthern Soul Showcase – Cryin' In The Streets ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of Shelby Singleton's SSS family of labels – a key force in the sound of southern soul at the end of the 60s! Singleton first came to fame for his production work at Mercury – but by the time of these recordings, he was stepping out on his own in a great blend of styles that brought together the growing sound of 60s soul with some of the rootsier and more down-home influences in the south at the time. Shelby was based in Nashville, and offered up an approach to southern soul that was a bit different than that coming out of Memphis or Muscle Shoals – one that allowed for a bit of freedom in the way things were played out, and which often featured some nice country elements coming into the mix. The set features work from the SSS, Minaret, and Silver Fox labels – a great assortment of rare singles and album tracks that includes "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "I Have No One" by Big John Hamilton, "Everybody's Clown" by Johnny Dynamite, "Cummins Prison Farm" by Calvin Leavy, "I Can't Use You" by Double Soul, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Blue Diamonds" by Double Soul, "I'm Getting It From Her" by Big John Hamilton, "Mama's Got The Wagon" by Mickey Murray, "A Shell Of A Woman" by Doris Allen, "Crying In The Streets" by George Perkins & The Silver Stars, and "So Deep In Love" by Eddy Giles.

Universal (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spirit, swing, and a whole lot more – a mighty collection of music all hand-picked by the legendary Nicola Conte! There's a deeply soulful groove to the whole thing – and a touch of the exotic as well – and the package really reminds us a lot of the great Gilles Peterson Universal collections that were out a few years back – full of deep tones and rich colors, and proof that when you've got the right guy at the helm, a collection of older jazz tracks can be way more than just the sum of its parts! In addition to Universal label work – originally issued on Decca, Emarcy, and other labels – the package features some Fantasy/Prestige tracks too – including some great gems we might have missed otherwise. Almost 75 minutes of music – with titles that include "Taboo" by Dorothy Ashby, "New Delhi" by James Clay, "Big P" by New Jazz Orchestra, "Juan-Les-Pins" by Staffan Abeleen, "Subo" by Klaus Weiss, "Spanish Castles" by George Gruntz, "Modette" by Roy Haynes, "My Favorite Things" by Sound Of Feeling, "Jungle Fantasy" by Yusef Lateef, "Feeling Good" by Pat Bowie, "The Hooter" by Ernie Wilkins, "Afro Blue" by Abbey Lincoln, "Bogota" by Ahmad Jamal, and "Baltimore Oriole" by Lorez Alexandria.

✨✧ VariousStone Soul – San Francisco's Loadstone Label ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Bay Area scene has always had a very unique approach to music – famous in rock, where classics of psych still stand strong – and important in jazz, hillbilly, and just about every other style too! Yet when it comes to soul, there's always something especially nice about the San Francisco approach – a way of creating something fresh and unusual, but without ever overstating itself too much – music that seems to owe very little to both the east coast, and Detroit – and which doesn't even follow some of the patterns down in LA! Case in point is the excellent work on this set – a sweet blend of obscure 60s soul singles and mid 70s funk groovers – pulled together in a wonderful examination of the overlooked Loadstone label. The work is totally wonderful – the soul cuts have a quality that really beats so many rare soul collections that maybe sometimes dig too deep – and the funkier 70s cuts open up with lots of currents from jazz and a bit of club, sometimes in modes that echo the sound of the Fantasy Records style of the period, but with a bit more of an indie vibe overall. As usual with Kent Records, the presentation is great – detailed notes, great sound, and 24 massive tracks that include "A Frown On My Face" by Jacqueline Jones, "A Pretty Girl Dressed In Brown" by Eugene Jefferson, "Fading Day" by The Chandeliers, "A Funky Driver On A Funky Bus (part 1)" by Charles Leonard, "Rudy Blue" by Jean Knight, "Indication" by Eddie & Ernie, "Love Bandit (voc)" by Lee Rogers, "Headed For The Streets" by Herman Harper, "You Touched The Inner Part Of Me" by Celeste Hardie, "Just Say A Four Letter Word" by The California Playboys, "Get To Stepping" by The Cals, and "Swimming Partners" by Paula Lamont.

BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
More funky breaks than Evel Knevel after the Snake River Canyon jump! The groove hounds at BGP records were set loose on the Ace catalog – which includes holdings from Atlantic, Stax, Volt, Westbound, and other funky classic labels – and they managed to come up with a killer batch of funky cuts, even though this is their 3rd dip into the crates! If anything, perhaps they dipped even deeper this time – especially as some of the once-trusted sources for breaks, like the famous Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, are now disappearing from the market. Titles include "Soul Pad" by The Coasters, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by The Mad Lads, "The Rose" by 50 Foot Hose, "Holy Ghost" by The Bar Kays, "No Strings Attached" by The Mad Lads, "After Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, "River's Invitation" by Freddie Robinson, "This House Is Smokin" by BT Express, "Music Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Pleasure Web, and "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter.

Heavy funk galore – and easily one of the best titles in the massive Super Funk series! This one seems to go deeper than all the previous volumes – really digging down for some obscure tracks that push past the obvious funky 45 standards, to include some lost gems from rare sources in the southern scene! The set's awash in hard drums, fuzzy bass, tripped out guitar, and lots of rootsy deep soul vocals – stepping from track to track with a quality level that beats most other funky 45 collections on the market, made even better by some superb liner notes from compiler Dean Rudland! Titles include "I Got Some" by Billy Garner, "Deep Soul (part 2)" by Ron Buford, "Doin The Model" by Eddie Clearwater, "Crazy Legs (part 2)" by Albert Washington, "Momma Momma" by Betty Barney, "Don't Ever Change" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "The Warm Up (part 1)" by Clifton White, "Chicken Scratch" by The Chili Peppers, "Fat N Funky" by Charles Crawford, "Super Cool (You're Just A Super Fool)" by Pat Hunt, "Out Of Sight" by The Soulsetters, and "Boogaloo Party" by Joe Swift's International. 20 tracks in all!

Light In The Attic, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of which never made it past the Pacific Northwest to the national charts. Back in the day, Seattle was a real cross-cultural hotbed – filled with folks who'd picked up and moved out from points east, settling in the Central District, working for Boeing, and reveling in the freedom of the new city to find their own groove. This set does a great job of documenting the flowering of eastern-styled funk in Seattle's growing scene of the late 60s – and features a range of tracks that run from deep funk to hard soul, sock-boogaloo, and even a bit of hard-handed piano jazz! Set list includes "Louie Louie" by The Topics, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Soul Swingers, "This Is Me" by Cookin Bag, "Bold Soul Sister Bold Soul Brother" by Black On White Affair, "Cissy Strut" by Johnny Lewis Trio, "Stop Losing Your Chances" by Cold Bold & Together, "I Just Want To Be" by Robbie Hill, "Wheedle's Groove" by Annakonda, "Hey Jude" by Overton Berry Trio, and "A Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten.
