Green FutureElectrified Rock/Honey, Rhythm & Butter ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Venice (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
Sweet electrified rock from Green Future – more sound library funk than the title might make you expect – with some mad funky drums underneath a tight horn line on the top – and this cool organ line that bubbles away with guitar in the middle! The trio of "Honey Rhythm & Butter" grace the flipside – which has this cool funky flute jamming over fast grooves with some sweet percussion on the bottom! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Josie, Early 70s. Good ... $7.99
Two great numbers from this sweet Philly girl trio! "It's Gonna Take A Miracle" is done in a great way here – with a strange time change at one point, and some very sparse use of vibes set to soaring string arrangements from Norman Harris. The flipside's nice, too – a great moody mellow number with a slightly dark edge. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Honey ConeSweet Replies ... LP LP format
Hot Wax, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
The second album by Honey Cone – and the one that really broke them out of the box! The record's got a groove that gets going right from the start – a sense of upbeat, soulful energy that really shows why the Honey Cone approach was so different than most of the girl groups who came before them – a groovier, more righteous style that shows that the ladies are very much in charge – and able to send things over the top with their unified energy! Production is great – very rumbling and bold, which further helps the groove – and titles include the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s – plus "Deaf Blind Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love LP, Vinyl record album

David HudsonTo You HoneyHoney With Love ... CD CD format
Alston/Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A great collection of work by singer David Hudson – a great vocalist who recorded for TK during the end of the label's hit years, and in a mode that was quite different than other artists on the Miami scene at the time! The groove here is sweet and smooth modern soul – done with a great mellow approach that clearly draws from the styles forged by Latimore for TK during the earlier part of the 70s, but which also borrows nicely from some of the work going on up north at the time. There's still some great Miami soul touches in the work – especially in the guitar lines and the way the rhythms flow out in a mellow and warm mode – but the album's also got a mature, sophisticated groove that we really love – and which is a nice contrast to the way that southern soul was changing over at the Malaco studios at the time. Titles include "I Have Never Loved A Woman", "When I'm Loving You", "Let Me Wrap You In My Love", "Scratch My Back", "Ease Up", and the hit "Honey Honey". CD

Duke PearsonSweet Honey Bee ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A classic Blue Note groover – the funkiest album by Duke Pearson, and a killer batch of piano-heavy soul jazz tunes! Duke really blew out the box for this one – not only coming up with a great batch of original tunes, and playing them with an incredibly soulful touch – but also working with a top-shelf batch of players that includes Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and James Spaulding! The great Mickey Roker is on drums, playing away with a nice scatter-shot modal mode that grooves in all the right parts – and titles include "Big Bertha", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Sudel", "Ready Rudy?", and "Empathy".

Bobby ScottTaste Of Honey ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $1.99
Forget everything you've ever heard about the song "A Taste Of Honey" – because long before it became an oft-covered upbeat trumpet tune, it was the bittersweet theme to one of the darker works of the 60s. This album – a beautiful set of jazz tracks written by pianist Bobby Scott – was the soundtrack for the dramatic work Taste Of Honey, performed on Broadway and immortalized forever as one of the British "angry young man" film classics of the 60s. Scott's score is perfect for the play – filled with dark moody passages, augmented by the reed work of Frank Socolow – and the unresolved introspective quality of the material is every bit as haunting as the film. Titles include "Peter's Vamp", "Rain Music", "Bridge Scene", "Peter's Theme", and "Heat Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Around April 6, 2015
Not the Roy Ayers' group of the same name as the title – but a killer set from Taste Of Honey – a pair of lovelies who more than lay claim to the role – given the power they lent to female soul at the start of the 80s! The album's got a killer groove throughout – loads of tight-stepping rhythms that are a great development of the Taste Of Honey sound – still all the best elements that made us fall in love with the girls during the disco generation, but a leaner, meaner approach that's mighty fresh too! Titles include "I'll Try Something New", "We've Got The Groove", "Diamond Real", "Midnight Snack", "Leavin Tomorrow", "Never Go Wrong", and "Sayonara". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "I'll Try Something New (Single Version)", "We've Got The Groove (Single Version)" and "I Want To Be Your Girl". CD

Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Around March 4, 2015
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next few at Capitol Records, where some incredible albums of modern soul would be recorded. And sure, at one level the group's hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie" is a bit of oversaturated pop disco – but there's plenty of other great moments that show the group as a more sophisticated soul outfit, including "This Love Of Ours", "Sky High", "Distant", "You're In Good Hands", "Sky High" and "If We Loved". This remastered version from Big Break UK includes bonus mixes: "Boogie Oogie Oogie (Single Mix)", "Boogie Oogie Oogie (12" New Boogie Mix)" and "Disco Dancin' (12" Disco Mix)". CD

Twice as sweet, and mighty neat – a killer set from Taste Of Honey, and one that has the girls moving away from Mizell Brothers help in the studio, and getting some great grooves from George Duke! Duke brings in all his best jazzy soul to the duo – lots of keyboards stepping around the tight vocals, and a way of laying together the rhythms so that they're nicely focused, yet never too commercial – that same great balance that George had in his own music at the time! Titles include the single "Sukiyaki", plus "Ain't Nothin' But A Party", "Rescue Me", "I'm Talkin Bout You", "She's A Dancer", and "Don't Lead Me On". This Big Break UK remastered edition includes the bonus track "I'm Talkin' 'Bout You (Single Version)". CD

An excellent Duke Pearson album – and (dare we say it?) better than any of his Blue Note LPs! The record features a very tight lineup with Johnny Coles on trumpet, Garnett Brown on trombone, Les Spann on flute, James Spaulding on alto, and George Coleman on tenor – all players who are well suited to Pearson's warm funky style on the piano, but who also have a strong modernist sensibility that really comes through on the solos. The album is filled with nice tracks – like "New Girl", "Honeybuns", "Heavy Legs", and the fantastic lyrical groover "Is That So", plus "You Know I Care" and "Our Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, upbeat approach to the music – rich, full, and always steeped in soul! The title track, "Solid", is one of the most-remembered tunes from the duo – and other cuts include "Outta The World", "The Jungle", "Honey I Love You", "Babies", "Cherish Forever More", and "Tonight We Escape". CD also features 4 bonus tracks too – "Street Corner", "Babies (ext mix)", "Solid (special club mix)", and "Outta The World (12" dub)". CD

Daniele BaldelliBack To My Funky Side ... CD CD format
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. Used ... $9.99
Maybe the best record we've ever heard from Cosmic mainman Daniele Baldelli – and definitely a set that really lives up to the funky side promised in the title! Baldelli's got a much deeper groove here than ever before – a great ear for tight elements on the basslines, mixed with jazzy work on keyboards and guitar – all woven into a groove that's every bit as club-worth as his other music, yet a lot more warm and soulful overall! It's almost like Daniele's going back to discover a disco generation he might have missed the first time around – with a retro style that's hard to distinguish from the original, a lot like Joey Negro and some of his Sunshine Band work. Titles include "Mellow Game", "Good Day", "What Da Funk", "Voltage Groove", "Synthesized Honey", "Break Loose", "Drive Me Crazy", and "Fontainebleau". CD

Beach BoysStack O Tracks (UK pressing) ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Beach Boys karaoke – or kind of a "music minus one" album – but whatever the case, the set's a pretty unique outing in the field of 60s pop! The record's exactly what the title promises – a "stack o tracks" from the group's earlier records – rhythm parts, some instrumental bits – all laid out with key guitar parts missing and no vocals at all – so that you can pick up your instrument and play along with the record – and maybe get your friends to harmonize too! At the time, the approach seemed somewhat crazy – but after spending decades tracking down Smile-era bootlegs of Brian Wilson studio tracks just like this, the record's got a surprising sort of brilliance – almost as if Brian had guessed there's be a market for his "studio progress" sort of material. Titles include "Darlin", "Salt Lake City", "Wild Honey", "Catch A Wave", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", "Surfer Girl", "God Only Knows", "Little Honda", and "Let Him Run Wild". LP, Vinyl record album

The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby It's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains".

Atlantic (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
A searing debut from Black Heat – one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s, and a tight little group with a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk and New York heavy! The album's got a bit of vocals – figuring in on about half the tracks – but the main focus here is definitely instrumental – with a strong emphasis on choppy guitar, sweet organ licks, and cooking horn solos on trumpet, tenor, and flute – the last two of which are played by David Newman – not normally a member of the combo, but a great guest for this session! The sound is very tight, but never slick – and often recorded with an earthiness that recalls some of the best indie label funk of the period – like the kind of grooves you might find over at Perception/Today – with all the trippiness that might imply. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is Gonna Catch You". CD

Atlantic/Label M, Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
The first 2 rare funk albums by Black Heat in one package! The group was one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s – and they've got a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk, African influences, and New York heavy jamming. The tracks are about 50% instrumental – and these are the best numbers, as they've got a tightly compressed groove, mixing choppy guitar, hot organ licks, and sweet sax solos into a very tight blend. The first album's got some guest work on reeds by David Newman – but the real strength lies in the group's overall ability to lay down a funky rhythm track and keep it going strong and long. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Super Cool", "M&M's", "No Time To Burn", "Love The Life You Live", "Rapid Fire", "Things Change", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is gonna Catch You".

A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more.

Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves – absolutely killing it early on with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

The record's filled with extended club cuts that have a lot of keyboards and electronics, and although the lyrics are a bit silly at times, the groove is rock solid – with that amazing funky disco sound that was sort of a precursor to the house grooves of the 80s. Adams and Carmichael are on keyboards – and vocalists include Donna Green and Leroy Burgess. Nice all the way through – and tracks include "Lady Bug", "I Love You", "Honey Bun", "Space Shuttle Ride", and "I Got A Big Bee". LP, Vinyl record album

A really hard-hitting set from pianist Cyrus Chestnut – wrapped up here in a cover that's an homage to Max Roach in the 60s, and served up with a groove that definitely evokes the best jazz of that decade too! The group's a very sharp quartet – with Chestnut handling piano, plus Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Willie Jones II on drums – and also acting here as producer, given that the set's issued on his own label! The team of Douglas and Jones is mighty deft – and really adds a bristle to the rhythms right from the start – providing a perfect place for Hendrix to show off his tight skills on trumpet, while Chestnut mixes things up with lyrical moments and some harder punch on his piano. All tunes are originals by Cyrus, which furthers the fresh feeling of the record – and titles include "The Raven", "Stripes", "Soul Brother Cool", "Piscean Thought", "Spicey Honey", and "Dawn Of The Sunset".

A stellar bit of boogie from Con Funk Shun – produced to perfection by Skip Scarborough, and done in a style that has lots of jazzy elements! The album was recorded well into the group's time on the Mercury label, but it's a real standout from the rest – thanks to an extremely well-written batch of tunes, and a mode of bass-heavy funk that avoids the cliches of other groups at the time – and goes for a more laidback style that sounds especially nice on the mellower numbers. Michael Cooper's great on lead vocals – and titles include "By Your Side", "Early Morning Sunshine", "Curtain Call", "Happy Face", "Juicy", "Lovestruck 1980", and "Honey Wild". LP, Vinyl record album

GED Soul, 2011. Used ... $4.99
Cool jazz funk from The Coolin' System – a group that lays out a funky backdrop, and one that actually generates plenty of heat despite the group's name! Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes, bass, drums and percussion bring the funk, along with a vamping guitar – but what we love about this record is all the measured out space that the group provides from some really sweet solos all around. It adds a late 60s-styled jazz funk vibe that's not easy to pull off, but everyone in this group can play, and they make it seem easy. Players include Mikie Martel on trumpet & flugelhorn, JD Douglas on tenor sax and flute, Pablo Ahogado on Hammond and Rhodes, David Guy on bass, James Bonomo on drums and Andy Wilmoth on percussion. AJ Eason provides guest vocals on "I Need Some Money", but for the most part it's a cool instrumentals set, and titles include "Who's Gonna Take The Weight", "Red Onion", "Sunshine Alley", "Roots", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Nubian Lady", "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and more.

A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption! There's a bright and buzzing sound on a number of tunes that caught us off guard – uptempo and fuzzy little groovers that have more of a rockin' lilt – which may have alienated fans of the folk revival stuff she spun, but it sounds groovy to our ears. Really nice stuff! Title include Bonnie's own tunes "Sweet Man" and "You Don't Love" – plus "Light Of Love", "You Don't Know", "Clown", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Factory Girl", "Streets Of London", "A Taste Of Honey" and more.

Truth & Soul, 2009. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD

Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A late 70s gem from Aretha Franklin – and although a bit overlooked, a record that still shows many of the best sides of Aretha's talents for Atlantic in the decade! The main arrangements here are done by Van McCoy – and while they show a bit of a dancefloor spin, they're not as overly disco as you might expect – and instead serve mostly to buoy up Aretha's vocals with a full, rich approach to soul music – one that still lets the lady really take the lead vocally, but also get a wonderfully warm sound that helps mature things nicely. There's none of the too-commercial style of the Arista years going on here – and instead, most of these numbers have an earnest, personal feel that's really great – echoing the best modes of previous 70s albums by Franklin. Titles include "Honey I Need Your Love", "Only Star", "Reasons Why", "You Brought Me Back To Life", "Half A Love", "The Feeling", "What If I Should Ever Need You", and "Ladies Only".

Lonehill (Spain), 1946/1952/1957. Used 2CDs ... $19.99
The only 3 albums ever cut as a leader by trombonist Bill Harris – a player who first rose to fame in the Woody Herman group of the early 50s, but who was also a heck of a great leader on his own! Like other Hermanites, Harris here displays an amazing talent for both tightness of group formation and respect of solo space – a style that allows for some bold head arrangements on most tunes, but also really makes the best of solo voices from players who include Ben Webster on tenor, Terry Gibbbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Harris himself on trombone. Most of the tunes are standards, but arranged in a manner that's quite fresh – another Hermanite touch – and the 2CD package features 7 tracks from Bill Harris & Friends (with Ben Webster), 8 more from Bill Harris & The Ex-Hermanites (with Gibbs, Lou Levy, and a bit of vocals), and 12 from The Bill Harris Herd, which features four trombones and four saxes, in Hermanite formation. CD also features one 1946 track recorded with Ralph Burns – making for a total of 28 tracks that include "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Laura", "Apple Honey", "Just One More Chance", "I Surrender Dear", "Your Father's Moustache", "Lemon Drop", "Early Autumn", "Bill Not Phil", "You're Blase", "Jive At Five", "Tutti Frutti", "Sue Loves Mable", and "Introspection".
