✨✧ VariousP&P Records – Hits Hits Hits (15CD set) ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 15CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just "hits" – given that this hip box set features tracks from every single 12" released by the legendary P&P family of labels – a massive amount of underground dancefloor work from the late 70s and early 80s, and a set that gives new meaning to the word discography! If you know even just a bit of the P&P sound, you'll know you've got a revolutionary listening experience in store – music that goes way beyond conventional club and disco, with lots of weird little twists and turns – in both the instrumentation and production, which often use these cool little homemade spacey touches! Vocals are often right in synch with the offbeat grooves – and just about every cut on here is massively funky, too. Package features work by Cloud One, Milton Floyd, Sons Of Darkness, Jesse Gee, Scoopy, Rudy Stuart, Little Scotty, Henry Brooks, Fly Guy, Ahzz, Super Jay, Otis Turner, Sherod, The Destiny Orchestra, Bobby Mann, and many others – from singles that originally appeared on labels like Queen Constance, La Shawn, Land Of Hits, Golden Flamingo, Heavenly Star, Clarence, Destiny, Mr Brown, P&P, Sound Of New York, and others. 185 songs, on 15 CDs, packaged in cool slim sleeves in a tight box set – over 18 hours of music, and all of it great!

GutsPhilantropiques ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
Guts bills this set as "an Afro-Tropical experiment" – but to us, the album's just a further expansion of his wonderful talents as a producer – which have really come a long way in just a few years! Guts maybe got his start in hip hop, but he's able to embrace a globe's worth of sound, especially in a project like this – which we might liken to some of the more globally-conscious records by Quantic – although Guts is working here on the Parisian scene, and maybe has even closer access to cross-cultural channels! The set includes work by plenty of guests – a lineup that includes Pat Kalla, Pinduca, Nazare Pereira, Emma Lamadji, Kandy Gura, CAtia Werneck, Djeuhdjoah, and others – on titles that include "Voyaging Bird", "Ja Nao Ha Mais Paz", "Li Dous Konsa", "Sa Ce Kado", "Kenke Corner", "Mucagiami", "Penda", and "Matadou".

KOG & The Zongo BrigadeWahala Wahala – Joy From The Struggle ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness/Pura Vida (France), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
Really driving percussion, and some great horns as well – the former served up by KOG, who also delivers some fantastic vocals on the set – the latter from The Zongo Brigade, who work in a great mix of funky rhythms, jazzy horns, and some sweet keyboards too! The set's very different than most Afro Funk albums in recent years – with an unbridled style that's clearly driven by the energy of KOG, whose expressions really have things leaping out on most tracks right from the start – then keep things warm all the way through. Titles include "For My Money", "Medowo", "Imela", "Agoro", "Mona Lisa", "Transmission", "Mad Up", "Dr Mensa", "Sahara", and "Suro Nipa". CD

Professor Harold BoggsLord Give Me Strength – Early Recordings 1952 to 1964 ... CD
Nashboro/Gospel Friend, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
The first full length collection we've ever seen to focus on the soulful gospel work of Harold Boggs – one of the greatest male lead singers of the pre-soul generation! Right from the start, Boggs was a hell of a singer, and a great songwriter too – and he first entered the business after getting a few songs recorded by King Records, who feature here on some of the earliest tracks – before Harold then moved over to Nashboro, where his vocal talents really took off! The work here is mostly from that point when gospel recordings were quite raw and stripped-down – with a very sharp focus on the lead singer, which gives Boggs some tremendous time in the spotlight. The package features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "The Half Has Never Been Told", "That's It", "Everything Is Going To Be Alright", "What's Happening Christians", "When It Hits You", "Inside The Beautiful Gate", "I Want To Live Right", "Someone's Gone Home", "Doing All The Good We Can", and "My Loving Mother Prayed". Also features two songs with Lula Reed on vocals – "Heavenly Road" and "My Mother's Prayer". CD

SupremesSupremes – Produced & Arranged by Jimmy Webb ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
An overlooked moment of 70s genius from The Supremes – and from the great Jimmy Webb as well – given that the pop studio genius wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! Jimmy had plenty of famous work under his belt by this point in time – including his famous collaborations with 5th Dimension – but the sound here is something completely different entirely, and very different than Webb's own records, as he was starting to find a voice of his own. Instead, the man is more than happy to let the vocals of the Supremes flow forth in this really heavenly way – with Jean Terrell now in the group instead of Diana, but never missing a beat in the lead – as she soars out in this sophisticated mix of strings and soul that's completely sublime! The songs are very fresh territory for the group, and the use of mostly Webb material on the record makes for a very unified set – almost the Supremes' answer to Minnie Riperton's fantastic first album with Charles Stepney, Come To My Garden. Titles include "Once In The Morning", "Cheap Lovin", "When Can Brown Begin", "Beyond Myself", "I Guess I'll Miss The Man", "All I Want", "I Keep It Hid", and "5:30 Plane". CD
(Part of the Motown Did It First Series!)

VariousC90 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1990. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A heady dose of music from a key year in the British scene – a moment when all the changes that had taken place in pop music during the tail end of the 80s were really coming home to roost – to change the sound and style of the indie world a fair bit since the initial C86 compilation! By 1990, the beats of the Summer Of Love and the growing wave of psychedelic elements were really hitting home – mixed with all the smarter songwriting styles that had come into play, and a genre-crossing love of the groove and strong ear for catchy lyrics – modes that were never too commercial, but really showed a focus and tunefulness that the scene hadn't had at the start of the previous decade. This 3CD set is awash in key cuts from 1990 – all handled with the detailed notes and overstuffed tracklist that made the previous volumes so great – 63 tracks in all, with work by Saint Etienne, World Of Twist, Flowered Up, Manic Street Preachers, The La's, The Steamkings, The Ogdens, Mongtomery Clifts, Hey Paulette, Life With Patrick, Mousefolk, Greenhouse, Action Painting, The Charlatans, Thousand Yard Stare, Spiritualized, The Popinjays, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Heavenly, Spacemen 3, Bark Psychosis, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Ocean Colour Scene, and many more.

✨✧ Viscaynes featuring Sly StoneViscaynes & Friends ... CD
ORG, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really great work from The Viscaynes – a unique mixed-race band from the northern end of the Bay Area scene at the start of the 60s – and one that provided an early launching pad for the talents of the legendary Sly Stewart! The group sound different than Sly's Family Stone, but have a similar role in soul music during their own period – male and female voices coming together with a great love of doo wop and early group soul modes, often working with arrangements by the young Stewart, who also adds in plenty of guitar to the mix as well. The tunes have much more of an east coast feel than you'd guess – very much in the best Philly street corner vibe – and titles include "You've Forgotten Me", "Help Me With My Broken Heart", "Yellow Moon", "You're My Only Love", "A Long Time Alone", "Heavenly Angel", and "Uncle Sam Needs You". Also features related tracks – "Without Success" by The Individuals, and "Eight Reasons Why" and "Mama Told Me" by The Precisions. CD
Also available Viscaynes & Friends ... LP 23.99
