Dyke & The BlazersFunky Bull (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Original Sound, 1969. Very Good- ... $9.99
A monster from Dyke! The cut's a bit tripper than some of his other work – more in the late Charles Wright vein, with descending off-kilter riffs and some monster-hard drums that really make the cut kick nicely, especially on part 2! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
The best collection we've ever seen of the work of funky soul legends Dyke & The Blazers – a double-length set that features full, unedited versions of their classics – plus a whopping batch of previously unreleased tunes! Dyke & The Blazers had a groove that was mighty solid back in the late 60s – a hard-vamping, tightly rhythmic groove that easily matched the best early funk of the time from Charles Wright, Sly Stone, or James Brown – and which was often served up with a rougher edge, and an overall sound that was a lot more dangerous! However, many of the group's singles really trimmed down their performances – shaving off key instrumental moments that are lovingly re-attached here, and combining them with some even rarer tracks that never saw the light of day back in the 60s. The whole thing's amazing – and this 2LP set features 18 tracks that include "Black Boy", "Stuff", "Moon", "Booga Jivin", "Runaway People", "Funky Broadway Time (parts 1 & 2)", "Swamp Walk", "Extra Funk", "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man", "Soul Cake", "She Knows It", "Let's Do It Together", "Bring It On Back", "Funky Walk (parts 1 & 2)", and "Triple Funk".

VariousJon Savage's 1967 – The Year That Pop Divided ... CD
Ace (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from 1967 – a year in which mainstream music saw plenty of heady changes – as you might guess from the title! The set's a wonderful follow-up to the 1966 set by Jon Savage – and like that one, it features a superb selection of tracks from this important year – served up in all the different strands and styles that were popping into place – soul, early funk, psych, hard rock, and lots more – in a blistering array of songs that steps beautifully between well-known classics and underground gems! The feel of the set is way different than the usual oldies package with a date on the front – as Jon Savage dedicated the whole thing to the groundbreaking mix of music he enjoyed from pirate radio at the time – and included his own fantastic writing in the notes to help explain what makes the music so great. Titles include "You Keep Running Away" by The Four Tops, "Lazy Life" by William E, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Try It" by The Attack, "I'm A Man" by Spencer Davis Group, "Western Union" by The Searchers, "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" by Gene Clark, "Feelin Reelin Squeelin" by Soft Machine, "So Sharp" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Mr Soul" by Buffalo Springfield, "Vacuum Cleaner" by Tintern Abbey, "Garden Of My Mind" by The Mickey Finn, "Love Power" by The Sandpebbles, "Look At Me I'm You" by The Blossom Toes, and "Psyche Rock" by Les Yper Sound. 48 tracks in all!

Evans PyramidEvans Pyramid (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... $5.99
Rare grooves from Evans Pyramid – a sweet set of cosmic disco from the end of the 70s – recorded with a lean, almost spiritual vibe – quite similar to some of the great tracks reissued in the Soul Cal series! There's a definite ear for the dancefloor here – lots of upbeat rhythms, touched with sweet keyboards riffs, and layered with vocals that are almost an afterthought – yet have their own sort of message at the right moment. The group's the brainchild of Andre Evans, an artist whose huge legacy of music business work includes stints with Dyke & The Blazers, Little Anthony & The Imperials, and Tribe – as well as a host of key album sessions as well – but the sound is unlike any of those references, and has this great stripped-down late 70s club vibe throughout. The rare album is offered here with unreleased bonus tracks – and titles include "Rubber Band", "Never Gonna Leave You", "Dip Drop", "No I Won't", "Soul Petrol", "I Got A Rush For You", "Dance A Thon", and "Sugar Stop".

Milt MatthewsMilt Matthews Inc ... LP
Commonwealth United, 1970. Very Good ... $11.99
A pretty cool little record from Milt Matthews – a bit stoned-out funk, a bit rootsy soul – played on a mix of acoustic guitar, organ, piano, and some very tight drums! The record has no real standout break tracks, but it does have a sinister soul feel that's really great – almost Dyke and the Blazers with some folksy touches, if you can imagine that! Titles include "Chick A Poo Land", "It Ain't Your Fault", "The Feeling Of Love", "Sweet Betsy Marie", "Route 21", and "I'm The Man To See". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSonny Hopson – Original 1969 Philly AM Radio Broadcast ... CD
Philly Archives, 1969. Used ... $3.99
Totally cool! This CD contains a full original AM radio show from 1969 – broadcast by Sonny Hopson, aka "The Mighty Burner", one of the greatest east coast soul DJs of the 60s! Sonny's got a really wild style, and the show's a non-stop blaring blast of funky tunes, groovy commercials, and great hipster patter from Sonny. There's some great production work, and the whole thing rolls together in that great sort of total energy way that's missing from today's airwaves. Even better, though, is the chance the CD gives you to hear funky classics in their original setting – as the CD contains songs by Eddie Bo, Dyke & The Blazers, and many others. Plus, the commercials are extra-cool – as they're mostly funked up announcements for great shows and nightclubs we'd love to be able to visit. This cuts down on the actual music a bit – but the whole thing's still a totally solid record of the great years of soul, and it's a real treat to have! CD
