Fatback BandKeep On Steppin' ... LP
Event, 1974. Very Good+ ... $44.99
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
(Original pressing. Cover has a small cutout mark, but is great overall.)

Fatback BandNight Fever ... LP
Spring, 1976. Very Good+ ... $11.99 14.99
A key turn in the groove for The Fatback Band – one that has the group getting a good dose of "night fever", and smoothing out their funk for the 70s disco crowd! Yet although clubby, the record's still plenty funky – a refinement of the groove first started on Yum Yum, streamlined into a sweet blend of bass, drums, guitar, and plenty of horns – but all still with a sense of liveness and jamming that plenty shows the roots of the combo from the old days. A few tracks here have a nicely sweet soul sound – sometimes with backing vocals from Donna McGhee and Phyllis Hyman – and titles include "Night Fever", "A Little Funky Dance", "The Joint", "Disco Crazy", and "The Booty". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a name in pen on both sides. Labels have a name in pen.)

Weldon IrvineTime Capsule (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Nodlew/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99 About January 18, 2023
One of the most beautiful records to come out of the early 70s – a tremendous indie effort from a young Weldon Irvine! Irvine put this album together as sort of a musical "time capsule" of his generation – an effort to capture the era's thoughts, feelings, and emotions through a mix of music, vocals, and a few spoken bits – all woven together in a way that changes moods nicely, but always keeps the same righteously spiritual vibe! Weldon plays keys that are both electric and acoustic throughout – and he's joined by a very hip batch of players who include Jimmy Owens, Lenny White, Alex Blake, George Cables, and others – all working here in a very rough-edged and soulful mode. Titles include the classic break track "Bananas", the sweet vocal number "Deja Vu",and the soul classic "Feelin' Mellow" – also covered by Fatback Band, but even better here in the original! Other tracks include "Soul Sisters", "Watergate Don't Bug Me", "Spontaneous Interaction", and "I Am". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLiving In The Streets Vol 3 – Busting Out Of The Ghetto ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 26.99
The funky third volume of the Living In The Streets series – and 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.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 3 – Still Rarer & Funkier Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 24.99
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 third volume in the Super Funk series seems to dig even deeper than the first two – and it also includes few incredible little nuggets that were never officially released in any format – which makes the whole thing essential, even if you've got a mountain of rare 45s back at your crib! 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.

✨✧ Rhythm MakersSoul On Your Side ... LP
Vigor, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky madness from the legendary Rhythm Makers – a dancefloor combo with a really incredible groove! The group has an approach that's a lot like Kool & The Gang at their best, or like some of the best mid 70s albums by the Kay Gees or Fatback – lots of bass at the bottom, very tight vamping by the band, and a wikki-wikki funky sound that's totally great! Many of the tracks on the set make good use of moog or keyboards – never too much, but just the right dose to spook things up a bit – and although many of the cuts have vocals, the overall focus is still in the instrumentation – which always comes across pretty darn great, and which is played with incredible precision throughout! The combo later morphed into GQ, but they've got a much rawer sound here – and titles include "Can You Feel It (parts 1 & 2)", "You Better Believe It", "Soul On Your Side", "Zone", "Funk N You", and "Street Dreamin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaMr Watermelon Man – La Bamba ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has minimal wear.)

✨✧ VariousGive Me The Funk Vol 2 – The Best Funky-Flavored Music ... LP
Wagram (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hefty collection of funky nuggets – all key 70s tracks, with a nice focus on the sort of sharp-edge material that's gone on to form the basis of famous samples over the years! Yet all these tracks are more than great enough on their own – not obscure works from the farther reaches of the underground, but the kind of instant classics that we keep on loving more and more as the years go by – essentially listening for any lover of funk from the decade! Titles include "Soul Makossa" by Manu Dibango, "Bra" by Cymande, "All This Love That I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "Concrete Jungle" by Little Beaver, "I Get Lifted" by George McCrae, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Gil Scott Heron, "Yum Yum" by Fatback Band, "Nobody's Butt But Yours Babe" by Blowfly, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, and "Chance With You" by Brother To Brother.

✨✧ VariousSampled Groove ... LP
Wagram (France), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
70s classics that have all been used in other tracks in recent years – as you might guess from the "sampled" in the title – a reference to the cuts' use by artists who include Gang Starr, Raekown, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Z, Mobb Deep, and others! The "groove" means that there's a mix of soul, funk, and jazz cuts here – a hefty helping of 21 titles that include "Forget Me Nots" by Patrice Rushen, "You're Getting A Little Too Smart" by Detroit Emeralds, "Nautilus" by Bob James, "Clean Up Woman" by Betty Wright, "Dance Of Maria" by Elias Rahbani, "Dr Love" by First Choice, "Love Sensation (7" mix)" by Loleatta Holloway, "Outro" by Blowfly, "Cramp Your Style" by All The People, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Darkest Light" by Lafayette Afro Rock Band, "Do The Bus Stop" by Fatback Band, "I Like Funky Music" by Uncle Louie, "Mechanical Baby" by George & Gwen McCrae, and "I Keep Asking You Questions" by Black Ivory.

✨✧ VariousJasper The Vinyl Junkie Presents Vinyl Junkie Thangs (3LP & 7 inch set) ... LP
BBE (UK), 2021. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch set ... Out Of Stock
Funky sounds old and new – a great collection of cuts that are hand-picked by Jasper The Vinyl Junkie, and which have a way of bridging the best modes of the 70s and some of the best sounds from recent years! The work here all sounds very classic, even if some of it is contemporary – rhythms that are mostly upbeat, but not really house, disco, or club – just upbeat funky nuggets that are filled with plenty of elements from jazz and soul! Titles include "Funky Cookie" by Exile One, "JB's Latin" by Spitting Image, "Safari" by Ashantis, "Berlin 1 (Hot Pants Road)" by Tihomir Pop Asanovic, "Nobody Else But You (Opolopo rmx)" by Steve Arrington, "Black Hole" by Stato Brado with Fred Wesley, "Crusien" by Thomas Siffling Trio, "Flotational Device" by E Live, "Let The Drums Speak (Harvey Lindo edit)" by Bah Samba with The Fatback Band, "Trippin High" by Eric Legnini Trio, "Painful Pleasure" by Hubert Eaves, and "Stay Cool" by Jaki Whiren & John Cartwright.
