✨✧ GQDisco Nights ... LP
Arista, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just disco nights, but some great mellow moments too – a wonderfully well-rounded classic from this great quartet – as tight and groovy as it is cool and classy! By the time of this debut, the group had already had plenty of 70s soul experience as The Rhythm Makers – a previous name for the lineup, and a combo with a great reputation for dancefloor grooves that were tight, but never too uptight – kind of the best funky soul styles of the time! This album definitely continues that tradition, with a sound that's leaner than most mainstream disco of the time – and really well put-together, in a way that also has them slowing down to hit some great ballads and mellower steppers too. The album features the massive disco title cut – "Disco Nights" – and a beautiful reworking of Billy Stewart's classic "I Do Love You" – with a sound that's faithful to the original, but a sweet stepping groove that's made it a favorite for years! Other cuts include "Boogie Oogie Oogie", "Spirit", "Make My Dream A Reality", "It's Your Love", and "Wonderful". LP, Vinyl record album

Jonathan LethemEcstasy Of Influence – Nonfictions Etc (hardcover) ... Book
Doubleday, 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 27.95
Jonathan Lethem is a writer that we totally love – an author who's given us great novels and short stories over the years – and who, somehow between that ever-growing creative output, manages to write a good deal of essays and other articles too! We're not sure when Lethem ever finds time to sleep – but we're also always glad when we see his name in print – sometimes a book review, or an introduction to another author's work, or even liner notes to a record – such is the man's never-ending array of writing! This book collects Lethem in all those many different settings – a stunning array of essays that touch on topics that include science fiction (a longtime love), popular music, contemporary fiction, modern art, 9/11, comic books, films, Brooklyn, and even personal memoir – all handled with the kind of perception and wit that we love in his fiction. The book is a hefty 437 pages – and includes pieces that originally ran in Rolling stone, New York Times, GQ, McSweeny's, Nerve, Village Voice, and many other publications. Book

Rhythm MakersSoul On Your Side (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vigor/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $22.99
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)".

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!

FTG, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A triple-header of greatness from the Funkytown Grooves label – a well-priced set that really shows off the label's commitment to classic funk and soul! The set brings together a blend of album tracks and rare mixes – some of the best titles from the FTG reissue series of the past few years, but working together here in a 3CD set that's overflowing with grooviness! The set features a total of 41 tracks in all – and titles include "Disco Nights (12" version)" by GQ, "I Can't Fight Your Love (7" version)" by The Modulations, "Stars In Your Eyes (special disco rmx)" by Herbie Hancock, "Hold Me Tighter In The Rain (7" version)" by Billy Griffin, "Heaven Sent (12" version)" by Stanley Clarke, "Juicy Fruit (voc)" by Mtume, "Firestarter" by Tease, "Giving Myself To You (ext east coast version)" by Glenn Jones, "Anything Worth Having (7" version)" by Johnny Kemp, "Love Is Just The Game (Jellybean rmx)" by Peter Brown, "I Just Got To Have You (single version)" by Kashif, "Dazz (Dazz disco mix)" by Brick, "Grand Theft (7" mix)" by Chocolate Milk, "You" by The McCrarys, "All In The Way You Get Down (rmx)" by Ray Parker Jr & Raydio, "Encore (ext version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Reach Out (12" mix)" by George Duke, "Show Me The Way (ext version)" by Regina Belle, "Risin To The Top (7" mix)" by Keni Burke, and "Mainline" by Black Ivory.

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily 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.

Paul YoungquistPure Solar World – Sun Ra & The Birth Of Afrofuturism (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Texas Press, 2016. New Copy ... $22.99 27.95
A great book that looks not just at the music of Sun Ra, but also the theory behind it – the special take on reality, and interstellar philosophy that made Ra as important a thinker as he was a musician! The music is approached from a theoretical framework that's extremely illuminating – especially if you only know some of the Arkestra records at face value, and not in the larger context of Sun Ra's ideas – and the author includes plenty of history to illuminate the ideas, but in ways that are nicely different than some of the previous books on the subject. The whole thing is a really great look at the transformative power of the music of Ra – that quality that's always made him far more than just another avant jazz musician, and instead a figure of inspiration and social change to decades of listeners who have followed his sound. Very well researched, with copious notes – 346 pages, hardcover. Book
