James BrownJames Brown Singles Vol 3 – 1964 to 1965 ... CD
King/Hip-O Select, Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... $24.99
Some of the most exciting years of James Brown's career so far – for a whole host of reasons! First off, James is really experimenting with different styles here – not just the roots of funk that would emerge more fully blown later in the 60s – but also bits of jazz as well, heard here on a number of instrumental, organ-heavy tracks! Added to the stylistic excitement is the fact that during these years, James was recording for more than one label – issuing work on Smash Records as well as King, thanks to some legal wrangling – a situation that further helped to open up his groove! This package may well be the most exciting so far in Hip-O's singles series on Brown – filled with both a and b-sides from the King and Smash years 1964 and 1965 – vocal and instrumental, rough and smooth alike! Collection features 36 tracks in all, plus full notes on each tune – with titles that include "So Long", "Out Of The Blue", "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)", "Please Please Please (live)", "Again", "How Long Darling", "Have Mercy Baby", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "I Got You (I Feel Good)", "Lost Someone", "I'll Go Crazy", "Think", "Try Me", "Tell Me What You're Gonna Do", "Out Of Sight", "Maybe The Last Time", "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf", "Fine Old Foxy Self", and "Devil's Hideaway".

✨✧ Sugarman ThreeSoul Donkey (original pressing) ... CD
Desco, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Whomp! It's a stormer! Killer killer killer! No kidding, this album's a monster – and it's one of the heaviest slices of funk we've heard in ages! Pardon the exclamations, but we're telling the truth – and this classic by the Sugarman Three is a must-have for any fan of funky jazz and jazzy funk. The group's usual lineup has been expanded to a hard, heavy sextet – with organ, tenor, guitar, flute, and percussion all going to town like a house on fire, or (more appropriately) like the best of the lost little combos that we usually sell on funky 45s! The drummer's totally sock-solid, and the organ and guitar riffs wail so hard your windows will break (Dusty Groove not to be held responsible for damage!) Every cut's a winner – and this will be the best present your ears have had all year! Titles include "Soul Donkey", "Chicken Half", "Double Back", "Pull My Cart", "Out A Sight", "So Long Donkey", "Turtle Walk", and "Mullin Around". Great stuff! CD

✨✧ Beastie BoysRoot Down EP ... CD
Grand Royal, 1995. Used ... Out Of Stock
The funky Root Down EP by the Beastie Boys – riding high on a mid 90s creative peak! Root Down featuring a trio of versions of the title track and Ill Communication album standout, based on the Jimmy Smith's classic of the same name – and in hindsight, you really have to hand it to the Beasties, not only sampling and celebrating classic early 70s jazz funk, but for their earnest wish to introduce Jimmy Smith to the pop culture kids of the 90s – including a killer remix by the mighty Prince Paul. Also includes some live recordings from the time of classic Beasties tracks like"Time For Livin", "The Maestro", "Somethin's Got To Give", Time To Get Ill", thier punky "Heart Attack Man", "Sabrosa" and "Flute Loop".

✨✧ CrusadersImages (Verve originals pressing) ... CD
Blue Thumb/Verve, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hard to miss with The Crusaders at this point – and the album's one of their stone classics from the 70s – just the kind of soulful fusion that few other groups could touch! The core trio of Joe Sample's keyboards, Wilton Felder's saxes, and Stix Hooper's drums is augmented by the guitar of Billy Rogers and bass of Robert Popwell – both players who slide in warmly to the grooves, yet still help the combo keep that lean, funky sound they first forged after dropping the first word from their Jazz Crusaders name. Things are never slick at all, and the use of vocals and larger instrumentation is yet to come – leaving the album a tight, right, outta sight groover all the way through! Titles include "Fairy Tales", "Merry Go Round", "Cosmic Reign", "Snowflake", "Covert Action", and "Bayou Bottoms". CD
