✨✧ GQDisco Nights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
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 Dreams A Reality", "It's Your Love", and "Wonderful". CD features 7 bonus tracks – "Boogie Oogie Oogie (12" disco version)", "Disco Nights (12" disco version)", "Disco Nights (single remix)", "Make My Dreams A Reality (single version)", "Make My Dreams A Reality (12" promo version)", "Boogie Oogie Oogie (12" promo version)", and "I Do Love You (single version)".

✨✧ GQStanding Ovation – The Story Of GQ & The Rhythm Makers 1974 to 1982 ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily 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!

TortoiseBeacons Of Ancestorship (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A nice, diverse display of avant instrumental soundscapes from Tortoise – who sound as unpredictable and vital as ever! All the descriptions of how groundbreaking Tortoise was in the earlier years, and forward looking they've remained throughout their career is all fine and good (and true) – but in the decade and a half of accolades, it isn't often discussed how flat out fun the group is at its best – and that's what we love about this record. Here they blend dynamics built from Krautrock and elastic proggy influences, electronic experimentalism, dubby bass, hypnotic soundtracky vibes, and even a little bit of raw, rugged punk into an overall approach that's Tortoise through and through. Their best since Standards, to say the least, and up there with their best work. Titles include "High Class Slim Came Floatin In", "Prepare Your Coffin", "Northern Something", "Gigantes", "Penumbra", "Yinxianghechechengqi", "The Fall Of The Seven Diamonds Plus One", "Minors", Monument Six Thousand One Hundred", "De Chelly" and "Charteroak Foundation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl – with album download.)
