✨✧ GQStanding Ovation – The Story Of GQ & The Rhythm Makers 1974 to 1982 ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great little package that offers up a long-overdue look at the full talents of the legendary GQ – not just the group's big hits during their club classic years, but also their early roots as the excellent Rhythm Makers funk ensemble! This overstuffed package offers up plenty from both eras of the combo – showing their amazing tight funk style from the mid 70s, which morphed into the fuller GQ sound on Arista Records – always with a sharply rhythmic vibe that made these guys way hipper than any of the countless disco acts to show up at the time – especially once the 80s groove years came along, and they could show off some of their jazzier styles too! The package is a dream – 31 tracks that are all expertly chosen – our favorites from the best GQ albums, plus rare singles, remixes, and even all the best Rhythm Makers titles too – cuts that include "Zone", "Try Smurfin (long version)", "Disco Nights (rmx)", "Prime Cut", "Sitting In The Park", "Sad Girl", "Shy Baby", "Dark Side Of The Sun", "Is It Cool", "Make My Dreams A Reality", "Shake (long version)", "Standing Ovation (long version)", "It's Your Love", "GQ Down", "Soul On Your Side", "Touch", "Monterey", "Spirit", "Lies", "Wonderful", "Don't Stop This Feeling", "Reason For The Season (long version)", "You're Never Too Old", and "Boogie Oogie Oogie (long version)". 2CDs, new mastering, and great notes too!

✨✧ VariousFTG Presents The Vaults Vol 2 (3CD set) ... CD
FTG, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge amount of great work from the FTG label – one of the most trustworthy soul reissues on the CD market! FTG has reissued lots of 70s and 80s classics over the past decade or so, often with lots of bonus tracks – a fair bit of which are included here, as many selections are remixes or singles, and lots more are reissued from the new versions on their CDs!

✨✧ Rhythm MakersSoul On Your Side (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vigor/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... 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". CD features an insane number of bonus tracks – 10 in all – with the unreleased cuts "Position", "Wonderful", and "Lover's Lane" – plus "Can You Feel It (orig special disco 12")", "You're Never Too Old (single)", "Prime Cut (single)", "Touch (single)", and "How Much I Love You (single)".

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of 12" single releases from the early years of the format – mostly tracks by bigger artists of the time, but served up here in versions that really top the album versions and the smaller 7" single takes. Almost all the selections here are mixes done for the 12" vinyl format at the time – and they work together wonderfully in a selection of grooves from labels that include Columbia, Epic, and Philadelphia International. Tracks include "Bourgie Bourgie (12" version)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Blame It On The Boogie (12" single version)" by The Jacksons, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "I Love Music (12" version)" by The O'Jays, "Boogie Nights (12" single)" by Heatwave, "Native New Yorker (12" disco)" by Odyssey, "Love Magic (12" version)" by John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, "Disco Nights (12" disco version)" by GQ, "Lovin Is Really My Game (12" version)" by Brainstorm, "Gotta Go Home (ext version)" by Boney M, "No One Home (12" version)" by Lalo Schifrin, "Shame (12" version)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Let's Love Tonight (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Dance Little Lady Dance (12" version)" by Tina Charles, "TSOP (special 12" version)" by MFSB with Three Degrees, "That Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by The Isley Brothers, "Was That All It Was (12" version)" by Jean Carn, "How's Your Love Life Baby (special 12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "I've Got The Next Dance (12" disco)" by Deniece Williams, and "Star Love (disco version)" by Cheryl Lynn.

✨✧ Louis MoholoSpirits Rejoice ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest 70s statements from ex-Blue Notes drummer Louis Moholo – recorded in the company of fellow expatriots and UK avant jazzers that include Johnny Dyani, Evan Parker, Kenny Wheeler, Nick Evans, Radu Malfatti, and Harry Miller. The album shifts easily between strongly rhythmic passages that show Moholo's roots in the South African jazz scene, and other, freer sections that also illustrate his importance in the European avant scene of the 70s – and overall, the record's got a beautifully soulful quality that guides it well through all of these moments. Titles include "Wedding Hymn", "Khanya Apho Ukhona", "Ithi Gqi", "Amaxesha Osizi", and "You Ain't Gonna Know Me". LP, Vinyl record album
