✨✧ First ChoiceDelusions ... LP
Philly Groove/Gold Mind, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best records ever cut by this soulful Philly female trio! The album's one of the first on Salsoul's Gold Mind subsidiary – and it features sparkling club production by the Harris/Baker/Young team – a landmark force not only in Philly disco, but 70s female soul as well – as their backings for groups of this nature are always sensitive to the complexities of the vocals! The record's mostly uptempo – with plenty of soaring tracks that still retain the more soulful sound of the group's early work – and the songwriting's generally tight, a few notches above earlier albums on Warner – showing that their return to the indie fold was a very good move. Titles include the classic "Let No Man Put Asunder" – plus "Doctor Love", "Indian Giver", "Do Me Again", and a great version of Stevie Wonder's "Love Having You Around". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ First ChoiceHold Your Horses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rochelle and the girls are in full force on this late 70s Salsoul groover – with production by Norman Harris and Tom Moulton! The opening trio of cuts have the continuously flowing vibe of an extended suite – and it's a really exhilarating 16 minutes of dancefloor soul – with gorgeous lead and harmony vocals, funky bass grooves and unexpected changes among the club soul standard-bearing sounds. The drum heavy sections of "Let Me Down Easy" and the title track stand out strongly amongst those, but there's lots of nice little twists throughout! Other titles include "Love Thang", and "Double Cross". 7 bonus tracks on this CD edition from Big Break Remasters: "Now That I've Thrown It All Away", "Let No Man Put Asunder (12" Disco Madness Remix)", "Love Thang (12" Disco Mix)", "Double Cross (12" Larry Levan Remix)" and more.

✨✧ Harry Belafonte/Lord FleaEarly Years At Capitol ... CD
Capitol/DRG, 1949/1957. Used ... $8.99
Two early calypso albums on Capitol Records – both pretty unique! First up are some of the first-ever recordings by Harry Belafonte – material recorded in 1949, with Pete Rugolo backings that are really amazing – as jazzy and modern as anything Rugolo did for other singers of the time, with only a hint of calypso in the rhythms. Belafonte sounds quite different on the sides than in later years – still with those tremendous vocals, but almost more of a jazz singer at points – which is a really surprising discovery! This aspect's supported strongly by the choice of tunes – which includes "Deep As The River", "Farewell To Arms", "Close Your Eyes", "The Didn't Believe Me", and "I Still Get A Thrill". Next up is a full album of straighter calypso material by Lord Flea & His Calypsonians – but one that also has a bit of a Capitol Records groove! Flea plays acoustic guitar and sings, and percussion is nice and tight – but there's also a fuller sense of space on the record, one that really sets it apart from other 50s efforts of this type – kind of a Capitol clarity that really adds a lot of charm. Titles include "Out De Fire", "Mister Give Me De Rent", "It All Began With Adam & Eve", "Jump In The Line", "Run Run Run", "Love", and "Monkey". CD

Jimmy CampbellJimmy Campbell's Album ... CD
Philips/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
Beautifully sensitive work from Jimmy Campbell – a record with a lot more depth than you might guess from the gimmicky image on the cover! Campbell returns here to spare, fragile territory throughout – working with instrumentation that's mostly just acoustic guitar and a bit of rhythm, plus occasional piano and organ – all in a style that reminds us of Biff Rose at some of his best late 60s moments, which is a pretty good comparison – considering Jimmy's uniquely personal style of singing, and his personally poetic choice of lyrical topics! The album's a real overlooked gem – the kind of singer-songwriter treasure that's arguably more suited to a hip audience these days than it might have been when first released back in the early 70s. Titles include "April Morning", "Paris You're In Paris", "Salvation Army Citadel", "By The Light Of A Lamp", "Maudie", "Baby Walk Out With Your Darling Man", "It Never Rains But It Pours", and "When You're Coming Home".

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

✨✧ Lauryn HillMTV Unplugged 2.0 ... CD
Columbia, 2002. Used 2CD ... $3.99
Ms Hill's notorious double album follow up to the Miseducation Of. . .album – a pretty nice set of unvarnished, intimate performances that would have gone done a lot smoother in an earlier era! After the whirlwind success of her first solo album, Lauryn, either a) decided that the peak of the mainstream glittering pop palace is better left to people like Gwen Stefani, or b) went off the deep end into a world of inflated self-righteousness and Bono-esque ego, depending on who's sizing her work up. Who cares. The bottom line is that Unplugged 2.0 is really a pretty decent left turn that wouldn't have been such a puzzling choice back in the 70s era, when major label artists might put out 4 albums a year, and took chances here and there. As the entire output of such a revered artist for the entire half of a decade, it's a disappointment, but a perfectly listenable one. 22 tracks on 2CDs (including interludes): "Mr. Intentional", "Adam Lives In Theory", "I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel)", "Just Like Water", "Mystery Of Iniquity", "I Remember", "So Much Things To Say", "The Conquering Lion" and more.

Alton McClain & DestinyIt Must Be Love ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet late 70s modern soul from Alton McClain & Destiny – a great little female vocal trio with a sound that ranges from lightly funky to soaringly soulful! The group kind of follow in a tradition started by Honeycone and First Choice, and improved upon by The Emotions – and like that latter group, the girls move from the easier disco tracks that you'd normally expect, into a range of soulful styles that all come off equally well with their vocal technique. Webster Lewis handled some of the sweeping string arrangements – and players include Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Lee Ritenour on keys. Titles include "Crazy Love", "Sweet Temptation", "Taking My Love For Granted", "My Empty Room", "Push & Pull", and "The Power Of Love". CD

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

Silver ConventionSave Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone". CD features bonus tracks – "Fly Robin Fly (12" disco version)" and "Tiger Baby (12" disco version)". CD

Sonny Til & The OriolesLive In Chicago 1951 ... CD
Uptown, 1951. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A really unique setting for The Orioles – a group who are best known for their doo wop material of the mid 50s, but who have a heck of a lot more to offer too! This live set from the start of the decade features the group at Chicago's mostly-jazz Blue Note club – a downtown venue that's a surprising choice for the group, and one that also seems to bring out a bit more of a jazz flair in their vocals as well! The style definitely has all the dexterity and wonderful harmonies of their famous studio work – but there's also an approach that has the Orioles picking up a bit more class and sophistication too – the kind of generation-bridging sound that you might hear from The Ravens at the same time. The recording is very well done – and the lead vocal of Sonny Till gets support from the group's other four members, who also play just a bit of guitar and bass underneath the harmonies. Titles include "So Long", "You Are My First Love" "I've Got A Gal 65 & I'm Just 23", "Would I Love You", "It's Too Soon To Know", "Barbara Lee", and "I May Be Wrong". CD

VariousDance Your Ass Off To Salsoul Remixes ... CD
Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 14.98
The title borrows a slogan from the late 70s disco years at Salsoul Records – but the groove here is 21st Century all the way – thanks to a host of very contemporary-styled mixes that take older classics from the label, and infuse them with a modern dancefloor groove! Even back in the day, Salsoul had a great ear for key club talents who could expand on their strong blueprints for disco grooves – and here, they re-show that same strength, but in a completely different way! Titles include "I Got My Mind Made Up (DJ Dan rmx)" by Instant Funk, "Jingo (Federico Scavo rmx)" by Candido, "Doctor Love (White Noize rmx)" by First Choice, "Love Break (Stephane Luke rmx)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "I Never Knew" by Jessie Andrews, "Find Somebody (J Paul Ghetto rmx)" by Inner Life, "Hit & Run (Joe T Vannelli diva rmx)" by Loleatta Holloway, and "By The Way You Dance (Julien Jabre rmx)" by Bunny Sigler.

A classic set of club tracks from the legendary Salsoul Records – all remixed by the great Walter Gibbons! Gibbons has a really expansive sense of sound – one that not only graces the original version of the album, but which stretches out even more in the 2CD expanded version – which features a massive 21 tracks in all! Nearly every cut's a super-disco winner, and titles include Gibbons mixes of "My Love Is Free" and "Ten Percent" by Double Exposure, "It's Good For The Soul" and "Magic Bird Of Fire" by Salsoul Orchestra, "Let No Man Put Asunder" by First Choice, "Catch Me On The Rebound" by Loleatta Holloway, "Moon Maiden" by Luv You Madly Orchestra, "Nice & Naasty" by Salsoul Orchestra, "Dance With Me" by Cellophane, "Law & Order" by Love Committee, "Block Party" by Anthony White, "Stand By Your Man" by Robin Hooker Band, and "Love Is Finally Coming My Way" by True Excitement.

Classic cuts from the great Salsoul Records, all remixed by the legendary Larry Levan – guru of the Paradise Garage scene, and a key bridge in the shift from disco to house in the 80s! Levan's mixes seem to have a bit more bottom than the originals – and a nice sense of space that really highlights all the best elements in the music. This massive 2CD package features the core 5 tracks from the original album, plus 14 more gems all remixed by Levan – a batch of titles that includes "I Got My Mind Made Up" by Instant Funk, "Double Cross" by First Choice, "First Time Around" by Skyy, "The Greatest Performance Of My Life" by Loleatta Holloway, "Handsome Man" by Sparkle, "How High" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "I Know You Will (rmx)" by Logg, "When I Come Home" by Aurra, "Skyyzoo" by Skyy, "Bodyshine (unreleased version)" by Instant Funk, "Summertime Lovin" by Steve Arrington, "Make It Last Forever (unreleased version)" by Inner Life, "By The Way You Dance (unreleased version)" by Bunny Sigler, and "Slap Slap Lickedy Slap" by Instant Funk.

Motown/MoWest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
The first ever compilation of the best music made for MoWest – the eclectic, but still soulful cuts made when Berry Gordy Jr. relocated from Motown to the west coast in the early 70s – releasing cool and sometimes strange music with a soul background, yet toasted by LA sunshine! The MoWest subsidiary lasted just a few years, and gets overlooked in the canonization of Motown at it's most classic and revolutionary – but the legacy is pretty incredible. Funk, sunshine rock and soul fused adventurously by a stunningly diverse roster – late period Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons (who's comp-opening track is a slept on sunshine pop-soul classic), breezy-jazzy-soul from Odyssey, the sister funk of Sisters Love, a stunning solo left turn from Spinners singer GC Cameron and more great stuff from Syreeta, The Commodores, Suzee Ikeda, Thelma Houston and others. We've been dying for a well selected MoWest comp like this for years, and Light In The Attic stepped to the plate and knock it right out of the park. The songs choices are great, the notes are great. . .everything about it is a win. Essential! Includes "You're A Song (That I Can't Sing)" and "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" and "Broken Road" by Odyssey, "Don't You Be Worried" by The Commodores, "A Heart Is A House" Nu Page, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You" by Suzee Ikeda, "You've Got To Make The Choice" and "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love and more.

Salsoul/Gold Legion, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A sweet collection of grooves from the legendary Salsoul label – easily one of the hippest imprints on the New York scene of the 70s! Salsoul's grooves go way beyond the usual disco – crafted with roots that go back to soul and salsa of the earlier part of the decade – and often mixed to perfection with a sound that holds up strongly, even on a crowded dancefloor! This package features ten of the best-remembered gems from the label – most in long mixes that echo their strong popularity as 12" single – titles that include "Doctor Love" by First Choice, "Runaway" by The Salsoul Orchestra with Loleatta Holloway, "Jingo" by Candido, "Dreamin" by Loleatta Holloway, "By The Way You Dance" by Bunny Sigler, "Love Is You" by Carol Williams, "Dance A Little Bit Closer" by Charo, "I Love New York" by Metropolis, and "Rio De Janeiro" by Gary Criss.

StratavariousStratavarious ... LP
Roulette, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great album of jazzy club tracks – put together by John Usry Jr, who'd done some work with other 70s club acts like Three Degrees, Love Committee, and First Choice. Most of the tracks on the record feature female backing vocals – in the style of work by those other groups – but the real standout aspect is a jazzy harp, played in a manner that makes us think of Dorothy Ashby going disco. The best cut on the album is the 8 minute "Nightfall", which has some great trumpet work by Guido Basso – and other nice moments include the mellow "Touching", and the cuts "I Got Your Love" and "Love Me", which both have some nice guitar. Recorded in Canada, and very typical of that baroque Canadian approach to disco. LP, Vinyl record album

Ubiquity, 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Funky classics – remade! This set may well be the best in Ubiquity's excellent Rewind series – a compilation collection that focuses on new versions of older funky tunes – some of which are pulled from obscure recent singles and import recordings, others of which appear on this great set for the first time! The quality of work is excellent – not only in the choice of original tunes to cover, which is already great, but in the way the artists handle them – taking them to whole new places, and using the core elements of the tracks to build tunes that have a completely different feel! Titles include Chakachas' "Jungle Fever" redone by Louie Vega, Cymande's "Genevieve" redone by Greyboy, Willie Colon's "Che Che Cole" redone by Antibalas in a "makossa mix", Betty Carter's "Open Your Eyes" redone by Elsa, Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing" redone by Damon Aaron, Herbie Hancock's "Rough" redone by John Arnold, Lorez Alexandria's take on "Baltimore Oriole" redone by P'Taah, Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Riot In Lagos" redone by Swag, The Monkee's "Porpoise Song" redone by Nobody, AC/DC's "All Night Long" redone by Bing Ji Ling, and Sahib Shihab's "Please Don't Leave" redone by Paoplo Fereghini.

✨✧ Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits.

Guru's second foray into the jazz/rap crossover world, with a huge amount of guest stars, and a little bit less of Guru. In parts, it actually seems to work better than the first one. Why? Because there's not as much of a forced effort to bring jazz and rap together in an obvious way, which leaves guests like Ramsey Lewis, Jamiroquai, Ronny Jordan, Donald Byrd, Kool Keith, Reuben Wilson, Bernard Purdie, and The Solsonics more room to do their thing.

Atco/Collectors Choice, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-header of harmony soul – the first 2 albums by The Persuaders, back to back on a single CD! Thin Line Between Love & Hate is a landmark album – one of the greatest harmony soul albums of the early 70s! The title cut is one you'll know instantly – as "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" is one of those soul classics that never gets old – and the rest of the album's equally great, with a sublime mix of rough and sweet that the group was never able to duplicate again. The sound is incredible – with arrangements by Richard Poindexter, and backings by the group Young Gifted & Bad, who often use a bit of vibes behind the vocals, which makes for a really cool sound! Titles include "Let's Get Down Together", "Blood Brothers", "If This Is What You Call Love (I Don't Want No Part Of It)", "Love Gonna Pack Up" and "You Musta Put Something in Your Love". The Persuaders set has the same feel as the first album here, and most of the tracks are written by bandmember Bobby Poindexter – but the vocals are a bit warmer overall – not as fragile or broken around the edges, as if the group was emerging with a bit more mature confidence. The whole thing's still pretty great, though – and has a really personal, up-close feel that some of the group's later work didn't have. Titles include "Peace In The Valley Of Love", "Bad Bold & Beautiful Girl", "Love Goes Good When Things Go Bad", "What Is The Definition Of Love", and the goofy "Trying Girls Out". CD

These guys keep on going strong with Brazilectro – one of those compilation series that we should be suspicious of, but which always turns out to be better than we'd think! The real strength here is the choice of material – some of the best bits from a variety of contemporary labels that we already stock, filtered through so that the quality level remains quite high, and the tunes all have real roots and a sense of depth – not just some quickie studio work for a remix project! The overall sound has opened up a bit – allowing a number of Latin influences besides the bossa that first inspired the series – and the 2CD set features 27 titles that include "Roda Piao (Spiritual South rmx)" by Azymuth, "Mi Swing Es Tropical" by Quantic & Nickodemus, "Vamos Irmanos" by Ed Royal & DJ Enne, "Not With Me" by Jojo Effect, "Valeu" by Marcos Valle with Joyce, "Sunday" by DJ Day, "Sou Da Pasada (7 Samurai Afroraduna rmx)" by Jorge Ben, "Early Daiquiris" by Club Des Belugas, "Watermelon Man (Dan The Automator mix)" by Poncho Sanchez, "Dirty Old Bossa Nova" by Visioneers, "In The Back Of The Car (Nostalgia 77 rmx)" by Emo, "To The Full Every Minute (Yam Who rework)" by Big Bang, and "Ernestine (Lemon rmx)" by Joe Bataan.

Ennio MorriconeLe Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene/Il Ritorno Del Ringo ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1965/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
A pair of legendary Ennio Morricone scores – back to back in a very limited collection! First up is one of our favorites – Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene – one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a real standard-setting record that's one of the top choices we go to again and again to illustrate the genius of his music! The score is a fantastic mix of the two best sides of Morricone's work – the kind of light, lilting melodies that are schooled in bossa, but turned loose on their own devices – and the darker, more atonal passages that would come to play more strongly during the 70s. The light wins over the darkness in most of the record – especially the tracks that feature the sublime wordless vocals of Edda Dell'Orso, which swell and fall with the movement of the strings and keyboards. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Le Foto Proibite", "Nel Vuoto", "Intermezzino Pop", "Amor Come Dolore", and "Quelle Foto". The second soundtrack is the striking spaghetti western classic – Il Ritorno Di Ringo – penned for the second Ringo film in the 60s, and with music that's even more compelling than the first! There's a great Morricone sense of balance in the mix – as gentle moments mix with darker ones, on titles that include "The Return Of Ringo", "The Disguise", "Sheriff Carson", "The Fuentes", and "The Wedding & The Revenge". Also includes all the material from the rare album "La Storia I Dialoghi Le Canzoni De Il Ritorno Di Ringo" – which features Italian dialogue about the film from the film, plus music as well. CD

Brilliant sounds from the global underground – an excellent in this wonderful series that never lets us down! We've been digging the musical choices of Gilles Peterson since the late 80s – and over the years, he's continued to expose us to new music we never would have heard otherwise – first with his compilations and radio shows, and more recently with his excellent work on his own Brownswood label! The Bubblers series has been running for a number of years, but each new volume is a fresh delight – sounds we'd never have heard otherwise, and all still as expertly chosen as the kind of work Gilles first turned us on to many years back.

✨✧ Kidd Jordan/Peter Kowald/Alvin FielderTrio & Duo In New Orleans ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful showcase for the soulful tenor talents of Kidd Jordan – a player with a style that takes us back to some of the richest, most expressive musicians of the loft jazz scene of the 70s! Jordan's got a way of spinning out a long, personal statement on his horn – one that's powerful and bold, and never resorts to cliche or any easy tricks – often just built strongly out of these very individualistic choices that almost have a poetic quality – although certainly of the proud and righteous mode! The first half of the set features a live performance with some wonderful bass work from Peter Kowald – a player whose low tones resonate in this very unusual way, and bring further depth to the record. Alvin Fielder plays both drums and percussion – and sparks off some strong energy at some points – even more so on the second half of the package, which just features duo tracks between Fielder and Jordan recorded in the studio.

✨✧ MC LyteLyte As A Rock (house mix, soul shock mix, Miami mix)/Shut The Eff Up! (Hoe) ... 12-inch
First Priority, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Despite the bad choices of a house (which for a reason that's beyond us is pretty sought after around here??) and "Miami" mix, this single does feature the "soul shock mix" with production by Audio Two, and the cut "Shut The Eff Up!", which was not on LP! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a First Priority sleeve, includes the shrinkwrap with hype sticker.)

✨✧ Lack Of Afro & OthersOne Way – Lack Of Afro Remixes & Rarities ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2012. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A heavy dose of grooves from Lack Of Afro – not only work recorded under his own name, but remixes and productions he's done for other artists as well! There's a solid commitment to funk on just about every record to bear the Lack Of Afro name – and you'll hear plenty of that in the grooves here – lots of old school 70s funk and soul elements, mixed in nicely to augment the core sounds – and pushed to the forefront on some of the best tracks too! Most of the music isn't played live, but there's definitely a live feel at points – given the choices of samples used – and the 2CD set features Lack Of Afro mixes of tunes that include "Si Si Puede" by Ray Camacho, "It's Real" by Hot 8 Brass Band, "Hurt Me So" by Diplomats Of Solid Sound, "Giorgio's Brother" by Eddie Roberts, "I Can't Dance With You" by The Fantastics, "Greenbacks" by Deep Street Soul, and "Freedom" by Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience – plus Lack Of Afro tracks "Broken Samba", "On My Way", "First Break", "Spooky", and "Numero Seenko".
