JB HornsI Like It Like That ... CD
Soulciety/Instinct, 1993. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked gem from the years when most of the rest of the world had forgotten about the JBs – but Fred Wesley and the group were still going strong! The set's a great meeting of two funky generations – the classic James Brown funk of the late 60s and early 70s, and some of the revival modes that sprung up on the London scene at the end of the 80s – heard to best effect here in the way the album was recorded – with core horns from Wesley on trombone, Maceo Parker on alto sax, and Pee Wee Ellis on tenor – plus added London grooves in a real Brand New Heavies mode! The groove is nice and hard, and the album's way more of a classic-styled funk outing than most of the other JBs-revival titles from the same stretch – thanks to rock-solid production from the Soulciety family too. Noel McKoy, Jay Ella Ruth, and other Brit funk talents help out on the set – and titles include "What Goes Around", "Chillin With Fred", "Picture On The Wall", "Homeboy", "Push", and "I Like It Like That".

Cold SweatCold Sweat Plays JB ... LP
JMT (Germany), 1989. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A late 80s tribute to the James Brown groove – done at a time when few others were respecting the JB sound instrumentally, although many had already started to sample the classics! The group here is headed up by trombonist Craig Harris, who also does a bit of singing on the set – and the lineup includes a fair number of other horns as well, clearly trying to replicate a JBs kind of mode – but working with some more electric 80s instrumentation overall. Notable guests include Olu Dara, Arthur Blythe, and David Murray – and titles include the originals "Brown's Prance" and "Brown's Dance", plus "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", "Cold Sweat", "Try Me", and a "Showtime Medley".

✨✧ Ray & His CourtRay & His Court ... LP
Sound Triangle, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever – a lost gem from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray and the group are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge – and featuring tracks that include "Sunny", "Soul Freedom", "Cookie Crumbs", "De Eso Nada Monada", "Lo Sabia", "Venimos Acabando", "La Pena", and "La Senorita Lola".

JBsGimme Some More/The Rabbit Got The Gun ... 7-inch
People, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A classic JBs single – with a non-LP b-side! "Gimme Some More" is a stone classic by the group – a proud and stomping funk song, with a catchy refrain that starts from the first beat, and which really wails as the tune goes on! "Rabbit" is a rare one with an unusual groove – fast, almost tribal rhythms, bass plucked super-strongly with horns blasting out a nice chase groove over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pat Van DykeLet the Horns Blow EP ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Pat Van Dyke definitely lets the horns blow here – a trumpet, tenor, and trombone – often working together in the frontline, in a way that echoes the old school sound of the JBs – while Pat Van Dyke lays down a set of more contemporary breaks and beats! The mix of studio rhythms and live horns is great – especially when the instrumentalists step out a bit and sprinkle things with their own flavors – on titles that include "Afro", "Break", "On The Good Foot", and "Forth & Back". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunner of a record – the first-ever album by The JBs, never issued back in the day – and lost for years until it recently resurfaced on a test pressing! The set features a leaner, more stripped-down version of the group – one that features Bootsy Collins on bass, and which doesn't rely as much on the horns as it does some very upfront playing by the rhythm section – who really set fire to the extended instrumental solos on the album's very long tracks! Group members include Robert McCullough on tenor, St Clair Pickney on flute and baritone, Bobby Byrd on piano, Catfish Collins on guitar, and James Brown himself on organ – and the mighty Clyde Stubblefield handles drums, as well as Frank Kash Waddy. All tracks are very long – quite different than the shorter single-type cuts on Pass The Peas – and the record features the first recording of "The Grunt", plus the long jams "I'll Ze", "These Are The JBs (parts 1 & 2)", and "When You Feel It Grunt If You Can". LP, Vinyl record album
(Also comes with a great book – detailing the album and its rescue from obscurity!)

MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! The horns take a more Afrobeat tack, too, with punchy blasts and solos peppering the numbers – in a really nice way – quite tight, but loose enough to swing, too. Tracks include "I Wanna Do My Thing", "Return To You", "Getting Together", "I Believed Her", "I Don't Have To Worry", "I Want You", "Love Is The Only Way", "Gimme Some Lovin" and more. CD

Nite-LitersA-Nal-Y-Sis ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1973. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s! The Nite Liters were a legendary funky combo that provided the backing for some of New Birth's best albums – but on their own, they were even funkier, and had a sound that was part JBs, part Meters, and all funky! This album may well be the group's best – their last for RCA, and a set that really has them honing their edge incredibly. The drums are amazing, the keyboards great, and the horns have this quality that's both complex, yet right on the money – making for a richness in sound that really sets the group apart from their contemporaries. A few singers from The New Birth provide chorus vocals on a few tracks – but most of the set is instrumental, and the record's one we'd gladly stack next to our Meters albums on Josie or JBs classics on People. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Drumology", "Excuse Me While I Do My Thing", "Serenade for a Jive Turkey", "Happy Hooker", "Craaashing", "Damn", "Pee-Foul", and a sweet cover of "Valdez in the Country" that's been sampled at least once over the years!

✨✧ James BrownAin't It Funky ... LP
Polydor, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years! The record has James working with the pre-JBs James Brown Band – a tight assemblage of players who really know how to craft an off-kilter groove. The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the horns, making for a syncopated groove that's utterly fantastic – as tight as a drum, and as funky as one too! Includes some great long cuts – like the 9 minute, two-part versions of "Ain't It Funky" and "Fat Wood" – plus some great shorter funky 45 type material, like "Nose Job", "Use Your Mother", "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose", and a version of "Cold Sweat". All the work here is tremendous – the kind of inspirational funky material that makes the album a lasting classic decade after decade! LP, Vinyl record album

A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s!

✨✧ Tanya RiaDo The Smasher/Love You Didn't Want ... 7-inch
Kumi/Jazzaggression (Estonia), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet funky sound from 70s Nairobi – two great cuts, back to back on a funky 45! "Do The Smasher" is a full-on funky track – almost JBs in the way the thing was put together, but with rougher edges all around – on the horn blasts, guitar riffs, and especially on the offbeat lead lyric from Tanya – which has a nicely spooky feel! "Love You Didn't Want" begins with a bassline that's almost enough on its own – bold, dramatic, and stating some great funky action before horns layer in, and Tanya serves up a vocal that's nicely echoey, and buried down in the mix in a very cool way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dokkerman & The Turkeying FellazIllegal Move ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A modern funk melting pot from Hungary! Group leader Tamas "Dokkerman" Michelberger is on keyboards, leading a great 9 piece group strongly rooted in gritty 70s funk – heavy drums and fierce bass grooves, and horns that show some love to JBs style funky soul as well as strains of African styled funk, and that extends to the guitars, too – but they're not all dismissive of their richly diverse European heritage. That all makes it sound like there might be too many ingredients, but that's not the case all – the gritty funk at the core holds it together nicely! Strong modern funk on Tramp, which continues to be strong source for both rare vintage and contemporary grooves! Includes "Vigyazz, Kesz, Ot", "Illegal Move", "Plan B", "Beast Chase", "Antilope", "Mango Season", "La Casa En Llamas", "Once", "Snake Bite" and "Tinigondok". CD
