IngramJazzed Up & Funked Out – 50 Years Of Good Music ... CD
Essential, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
Fantastic work from Ingram – pulled from a time when the Philly group was really coming into their own! Ingram first recorded under the name Ingram Family – and later gave the world producer Butch Ingram – but the material here is all from a really special time when they were taking their group funk sound and honing it to a razor-sharp edge – creating a style that was perfect for a mellow or midtempo groove – in a way that was often different from some of the bigger funk acts at the start of the 80s! There's almost a less-is-more approach going on here – one that makes the vocals really sound great too – and the set brings together ten classic tracks, with titles that include "Smoothin Groovin", "I Like It", "Drivin Me Crazy", "We Like To Do It", "Fantasy", "Everybody Get On Up & Get Down", "Share A Dream", "Would You Like To Fly", and "Just For You".

IngramNight Stalkers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mirage/FTG, 1984. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
Wonderful work from Ingram – an incredibly talented soul family who'd spent more than enough time woodshedding in earlier years, and emerged to become one of the strongest mainstream acts of the 80s scene! There's a solid feel here that goes way beyond commercial soul – a great way with some of the gentler tunes, pointing back to a Philly Soul legacy with ballads – and a hip way with the upbeat numbers, which carefully avoid some of the clunkier 80s soul modes of the period. James, butch, William, John, and Robert Ingram all had a hand in writing the tunes – and titles include "With You", "When You're Hot You're Hot", "Just For You", "Fantasy", and "I Like It". CD has 2 bonus tracks – "With You (ext 12" mix)" and "Girl What's Going On (12" mix)". CD

IngramWould You Like To Fly (with bonus track) ... CD
Mirage/FTG (France), 1983. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
A wicked 80s groove from the mighty Ingram Family! Ingram were one of those groups that actually got better as they got slicker – and by the time of this 1983 release, Butch, James, and William Ingram had had more than enough experience working together and with other artists to really forge a strong sophisticated soul sound. The record's a lot better than many of its group-soul contemporaries' – and it's more of an extension of a 70s harmony group style than it is a throwaway 80s group funk album. The songwriting's a notch above what you'd expect – and the overall soul component is very high. Titles include "Share A Dream", "No One", "Smoothin Groovin", "Spoken Words", and "Groovin On A Groove". CD features the bonus track "Mi Sabrina Tequana". CD

Jerry KnightLove's On Our Side ... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $19.99
Brilliant work from Jerry Knight – an artist who often lent his talents to others as an arranger or producer, but who could also really shine in the spotlight on his own! Knight spent time with Raydio, and that vibe definitely shows through here – on tunes that are the perfect summation of 80s funky soul at its best – never over-polished, nor trying too hard for any sort of chart placement – but completely catchy and very tuneful overall! Jerry's also got some superstar help on the record – including piano from James Ingram, who also sings backing vocals with Phil Perry – and production from Leon Haywood on half the set, rounding things out with his own great groove. Titles include "She's Got To Be A Dancer", "I'm Down For That", "Fire", "Beautiful", "Do It All For You", and "Brand New Fool". CD

✨✧ VariousLooking Back – 80 Mod, Freakbeat, & Swinging London Nuggets – Compiled By Paul Weller (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Fantastic work from a time when the London scene was heavy on influences from American soul, blues, and R&B – and sought to turn the best elements of that music into something new and unique! Some of the groups here are ones that you'll recognize from later years and greater fame, others are early combos that featured later stars, and still others are wonderful groups you've been lost to the shifting sands of time – but who really show the fantastic edge that the British scene had in the mid 60s! Lots of this work has the mod vibe you'd expect from the title, but there's also some fuzzier moments too – and the package is a hell of a deal at this great price! 80 tracks in all – with titles that include "Looking Back" by Spencer Davis, "I Don't Need Your Kind" by The Rockin Vickers, "Done Me Wrong" by The Couriers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertainty, "Looky, Looky" by The Brothers Grimm, "Kangaroo" by Hoagy Benson, "Reviewing The Situation" Jacki Bond, "No Good Without You" by The Birds, You Can't Be Serious" by The Mirage, "Jak D'Or" by Episode Six, "Until My Baby Comes Home" by The Mojos, "Hush" by Kris Ife, "Take It Easy" by Sugar Simone, "Yes I Do" by Ram John Holder, "Take Away" by The Couriers, "I'll Be Doggone" by Glen Ingram, "Ace Of Clubs" by The Knave, "Last Night" by Laurel Aitken & The Soulmen, "Baby Do You Know What You're Doing" by Arthur Brown Set, "Please Go" by The Trekkas, and "Tough She Says" by The In Crowd.

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks Presents Stax Breaks ... CD
Stax (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky breaks from the Stax Records – the legendary Memphis label that's had as much of an influence on the sound of hip hop as any northern company! The set brings together 19 tracks that are immediately recognizable for their use in modern hip hop – all heavy funk numbers with a solid southern groove – filled to the brim with burning horns, searing guitars, rumbling bass, and heavy funky drums! Tracks on the set have been sampled over the years by the likes of Wu Tang, Brand Nubian, Dilated Peoples, De La Soul, and others – but they also stand out equally well as funky tunes on their own, whether or not you've got an ear for who used them later. Great funky southern soul all the way through – with tracks that include "Our Generation" by Ernie Hines, "Black" by The Mar-Keys, "Tramp (inst)" by Otis & Carla Band, "Make This Young Lady Mine" by The Mad Lads, "The Devil Is Dope" by The Dramatics, "In The Hole" by The Bar-Kays, "I'll Play The Blues For You (part 1)" by Albert King, "Soul Girl" by Jeanne & The Darlings, "Itch & Scratch (part 2)" by Rufus Thomas, "Drumbeat" by Jim Ingram, "Crop Dustin" by Steve Cropper, "After Laughter" by Wendy Rene, "Memphis Sunrise" by The Bar-Kays, "Girl I Love You" by The Temprees, and "As Long As I've Got You" by The Charmels.
