General CrookBest Years Of My Life/Testification ... 7-inch
Wand, 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Later work by General Crook – very different than his funkier sides of the 60s, but still pretty darn great! "Best Years Of My Life" is a wonderful ballad cut – strings gently gliding as Crook's rich vocals come into deliver a sweet and sad lyric. "Testification" is more electric – with funky clavinet at the beginning, and a flanged-out approach on the vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ General CrookGimme Some (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Very nice funky stuff! This may be the best single ever by this lost Chicago funk artist. It's got a great hard groove, in a very James Brown way, and raw heavy lyrics in the best funky 45 tradition. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some marker and a small sticker.)

General CrookWhat Time It Is (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Early 70s. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the best tracks from this Chicago funk legend! The tune starts with a great break, has a fuzzed-out Superfly kind of groove, and funks it on in a totally righteous way! Loads of great fuzzy guitar – and a very hip sound that takes it past most of The General's other work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ General CrookGet Over/What I'm Getting Now & What I'm Used To, Ain't The Same ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky classic from this lost Chicago soul artist! "Get Over" has nice tight backing, with a raw James Brown-esque sound, courtesy of Burgess Gardner. A nice one from the old days, and the flip's pretty keen, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some marker.)

VariousBill Brewster Presents Tribal Rites (3CD set) ... CD
Eskimo (UK), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99
Bill Brewster's taught us plenty about music over the years – both as a writer and dancefloor historian, and with some of his ultra-cool collections for various labels! But this time around, Bill tells us as much about himself as he does the history of popular music – by tying together some of his favorite records of the 70s and 80s, in a mix of modes that's nicely loose, and which features loads of great surprises along the way! The set's not your standard mix of funk and dancefloor tracks – as the vibe here is maybe more like some of those cool celebrity-chosen collections from a decade or so back – like the great Trip series, or some of its contemporaries. And although we always thought Brewster really knew a lot about music, he really blows us away here – with a huge amount of tracks that we'd never heard before, all working together in great new ways in the setting. Titles include "Maranatha" by Latin Breed, "Rhythm Kung Fu" by Banzai, "Cartoon People" by Freddi & Henchi, "Life In The Big City" by The General, "No Limit" by Final Edition, "Issmak" by Apatchi Band, "Reggae Makossa" by Brent Dowe & The Gaytones, "Rejoice" by Agape, "Animal Rhapsody (version)" by The Raincoats, "Side A Side B" by Deborah & The Puerto Ricans, "Walk On The Wild Side" by Jeff Duff, "Crazy Beat" by Motion, "Turning Back" by Peter Accident, "Family Prayer" by Clifton King, "Night Images (Swayzak early mid afternoon mix)" by Larry Heard, "Excursion 2" by B McCarthy & Rasoul, "What Time It Is (part 2 – Bill Brewster edit)" by General Crook, and "Don't Stay For Breakfast" by Stroer.

✨✧ Chairmen Of The BoardGive Me Just A Little More Time ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album of 70s soul – and perhaps the most enduring full LP by this enigmatic harmony group! The vocals of General Crook alone are more than enough to win us over – some of the most distinct lead soul singing we've ever heard, pitched perfectly with the backings of the rest of the group. But the overall package is even better – righteous arrangements that really show the new Holland-Dozier-Holland energy for the 70s – more of a punch than most of Motown a few years before, and open to some headier elements that only serve to do even more with the vocals! Titles include the group's huge hit "Give Me Just A Little More Time", a totally compelling number with a scattershot beat, and some wonderful lead vocals from the always-great General Johnson – plus, their cover of Clarence Carter's "Patches" – which was a big single for them – and the tracks "Bravo Hooray", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Come Together", "You've Got Me Dangling on a String" and "Tricked & Trapped". CD
