Fatback BandFeel My Soul ... LP
Perception, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Easily the most soulful of all the albums by this legendary funk combo – and the one that features excellent vocals by Brother Johnny King! Included here are vocal and instrumental versions of Weldon Irvine's great cut "Feeling Mellow" – done in a version even better than the original! Other cuts include "Makin' Love", "Sketches of Life", "Meet Me Over My House", and "Three Dimensional World". Tough to find in the original, now out on reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback BandLet's Do It Again ... LP
Perception, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A key classic from the earliest years of the Fatback Band – one of the group's funkiest albums, and part of their original trilogy for the Perception label! The groove here is mighty raw throughout – but a bit more complicated than some of their funky 45 releases – a mixture of funky vamps and some more soul-styled tunes – showing the group evolving a bit from the start, yet still losing none of their funky edge – sounding surprisingly nice on a few of the album's mellower instrumentals. Titles include the massive "Goin' To See My Baby", with a classic break on the intro – plus "Street Dance", "Free Form", "Give Me One More Chance", "Green Green Grass Of Home", "Baby I'm A Want You", and "Take a Ride (On The Soul Train)".

Fatback BandPeople Music ... LP
Perception, 1973. Very Good+ ... $69.99
One of the greatest funk albums ever! This is the great LP of hard funky cuts that perfectly sums up the Fatback style that you've heard so much about – but which you can't find on much of their late 70s albums! The whole album is filled to the brim with loads of great hard funk cuts, with cool crowd noises and a non-stop groove all the way through. Monster cuts, including "Nija Walk", "Fatbackin", "Soul March", "Soul Man", "Kiba", "Clap Your Hands", and lots more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fatback BandFatbackin' – The Perception Sessions (People Music/Let's Do It Again/Feel My Soul) ... CD
Perception/Castle (UK), 1972/1974. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funkiest early work by Fatback! This 2CD set features all three of their albums for the Perception label – all brilliant funky gems that stand with some of the best funk of the early 70s. At this point, the group has a raw hard sound – mixing together choppy guitar, hard drums, and rolling bass in a style that was only matched by a rare few of their contemporaries, like Kool & The Gang or The Meters. All three albums have a bit of their own feel – from the party style of People Music, to the sweeter soul of Feel My Soul, to the straight hard funk of Let's Do It Again – and alone or together, they're some of the best funky soul you could find from the early 70s. The super-expanded set features 28 cuts in all – including the b-side only "Dance Girl", plus "Soul March", "Nija Walk", "Street Dance", "Take A Ride On The Soul Train", "Let's Do It Again", "Goin To See My Baby", "Feeling Mellow", "Feel My Soul", and "Makin Love".

✨✧ Fatback BandKeep On Steppin' ... LP
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky rumpling bass, and enough choppy guitar to level a whole forest in one swoop! Lyrics are part of most numbers, but they're often in the bad-rapping or call and response mode of the People Music album – except for a few sweeter numbers which also sound pretty nice too! "Keep On Stepping" is a great little funky number – as are "Wicky Wacky", "Mr. Bass Man", and "New York Style". We also love the sweet soul track "Love", which has some great vocals, a great hook, and which sounds like a tune from their Feel My Soul LP! Other tracks include "Can't Stop The Flame", "Feeling", and "Breaking Up With Someone You Love Is Hard To Do". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSuper Funk Vol 3 – Still Rarer & Funkier Funk ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A killer batch of rare funky tunes – pulled from a host of tiny labels, and put together with a quality level that would blow away a crate full of of funky 45s! This 3rd volume in the Super Funk series seems to dig even deeper than the first 2 – and it also includes few incredible little nuggets that were never officially released in any format! Includes "The Tramp (From Funky Broadway)" by The Showmen Inc, "Put It In" by Johnny King And The Fatback Band, "Cissy Popcorn" and "Funky Chicken" by Preston Love, "Soul Livin" by Everyday People Unlimited, "Brother Brown" by Camille Bob, "At The Soul In" by Count Yates And The Rhythm Crusaders, "Cat Scream" by Li'l Buck, "Bending Soul" by the Soul Blenders", "Ain't It A Groove" by Chico & Buddy, "Soul Brothers Testify" by Soul Senders, "Fat Man" by TKOs, "Sweet Potato Gravy" by Maurice Simon And The Pie Men, and lots more! 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaMr Watermelon Man – La Bamba ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s! The album's got that perfect Santamaria combo from the time – a group that features trumpet and these wonderfully sharp arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – plus very smoking reed work from a young Hubert Laws, wailing away on flute and tenor, and Bobby Capers on alto and baritone – both players who mix jazz and soul instrumental modes, to bring a hell of a lot of feeling to the overall sound of the band – in ways that really get past more familiar use of trumpet or trombone in other Latin combos. The band grooves nicely on original material like "Streak O Lean", "Ricky Tick", "Do It To It", "Fatback", "Coconut Milk", and "Jose Outside" – and they also reprise Mongo's big hit "Watermelon Man".

✨✧ VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – Special Soul & Funk Edition ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive collection of soulful groovers – tunes that packed the dancefloors in the days before disco, and which definitely show the harder edge of the soul spectrum! The set starts off with mid-60s tunes based around a simple rhythm and a quirky dance gimmick – then branches out into some hard-hitting sock-soul numbers from later in the decade, and eventually slides into some sweet 70s funk! The overview of tunes is a great one, with some tasty familiar numbers, some great obscurities, and a few tracks that have been massively hard to find on CD! Titles include "The Greasy Frog" by Jeb Stuart, "The Matador" by Major Lance, "The Dip" by The Whispers, "Jerk It" by The Gypsies, "The Chicken" by Jackie Lee, "The Meditation" by TNT Band, "Broadway Freeze (parts 1 & 2)" by Harvey Scales & The Seven Sounds, "Walkin The Duck" by The Triumphs, "Temptation Walk" by The Entertainers IV, "Moon Walk (parts 1 & 2)" by Joe Simon, "Bumpin & Stompin" by Garland Green, "Bus Stop" by Fatback Band, and "Do The Sissy" by Albert Collins. 26 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousPulp Fusion 6 – Magnum ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sixth volume in the great series of rare funk and jazz, and mad heavy ghetto grooves! As we've come to expect from the Pulp Fusion folks, Magnum is packed tightly with monster 70s cuts that we hardly ever see on wax anymore, and to have them all popping out together is guaranteed funk heaven! Magnum works great as a straight up sequel to the Fully Loaded set, Volume 4 in the series, and is truly as essential as any compilation in the genre. 12 tracks in all, including "Evolution" by Magnum, "Fencewalk" by Mandrill, "Crossword Puzzle" by Sly Stone, "Goin' To See My Baby" by Fatback Band, "Theme Song" by Wood, Brass & Steel, "Worm" by Jimmy McGriff, "Turn Off The Lights" by Larry Young's Fuel, "Let's Dance" by Pleasure, "Pick Up The Pieces (One By One)" by AABB, "Grand Central Shuttle" by Johnny Griffith, Inc., "VJC" by Clifford Coulter, and "Povo" by Freddie Hubbard.

✨✧ VariousLiving In The Streets Vol 3 – Busting Out Of The Ghetto ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Oooooooh-weeee! Is this a funky monster, or what? The set's easily the best in this great series – a really hard and heavy batch of rare funk tunes that pushes past the cliches of the title to come up with an all-solid batch of tracks that's sure to please any fan of deep funk. Loads of great little groovers from a range of different labels – organ jazz meets heavy soul vocals meets dancing bassline funk, hard drums, heavy riffing, and beyond – all wrapped up together with a sound that never lets up. Tracks include "Mary Jane" by Bobby Rush, "Bustin Outta The Ghetto" by Carlos Malcolm, "I'm A Good Woman" by The Generation, "Dance Girl" by The Mighty Tom Cats, "Peace Love Not War" by Johnny King with The Fatback Band, "The Truth Shall Make You Free" by King Hannibal, "I'm Wishin" by Lorez Alexandria, "I've Known Rivers" by Gary Bartz, "Viva" by Jade, "Seeds Of Life" by East LA Car Pool, "Starvin" by Winfield Parker, and "He Called Me Baby" by Spanky Wilson.

✨✧ CS CrewFunky Pack ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The bass is super-heavy on these grooves – way more so than on other Afro Funk records of the time, and in ways that easily match, if not beat, the early best by Fatback Band and Kool & The Gang – grooves that have amazing dexterity that few others could match, yet which always come through right on the money every time! The bass dips, turns, soars, and drops magically on each number – setting things up strongly for the group's riffing guitar, sweet keyboard lines (including a big of moog!), and few horn moments – which themselves often come across more like an American group than a Nigerian one. Vocals have this rough approach – often part of the rhythm more than anything else – and titles include "Love Is Peace", "Freaky Funkyfied Fix", "Bread Power", "Doin The Good Thing", "I've Found Love", "Last Day", and "Dig In With Time".
