Dokkerman & The Turkeying FellazIllegal Move (with download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes full album download code.)

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!

RCA, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s!

MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily 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!)

✨✧ Breakdown BrassMary Jane/Horseman ... 7-inch
Mixto, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Breakdown Brass take on Rick James' "Mary Jane" – turning the whole cut into a horn-heavy instrumental, with a groove that's more 70s funk than the vintage of Rick's original tune! The whole thing comes off great – the horns really hold onto the hook – and the flipside is a longer number titled "The Horseman" – which romps with a great break at the start, then uses the horns in almost JBs-like frenzy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Brother SoulTrain Song/Mr Boogie ... 7-inch
Fraternity, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A train grinds to a halt at the top of this sweet funky gem – then the band leaps into a non-stop groove that's totally outta sight! While the JBs may cross the tracks, these guys take over the whole train line – and slide down the rails with effortless easy – in this joyous funky mode that has congas riffing at fast time underneath tight horns – all while a wah-wah guitar carves out a snakey funky line in the middle! "Mister Boogie" is plenty funky too – with these tight snapping drums that are faster than the usual break, but at a level that really blows us away with their timing and power – even once the tune's badass guitar solo comes into the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ DeRobert & The Half-TruthsI Got Burned/Nashville Country Bump ... 7-inch
GED Soul, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully heavy funk from DeRobert & The Half-Truths – a tune that may be the group's best to date! "I Got Burned" has this wicked JBs-type groove right at the start – that sharp mix of downbeats and horns that combo did so well – all a perfect foil for DeRobert's soulfully trilling vocals! "Nashville Country Bump" has a great groove that's very much what you might expect – a hip blend of Tennessee roots and harder funk – all instrumental, and with lots of twangy guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Derobe Dance BandGogoplata/Kem Dahg ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool contemporary bit of Afro Funk – tinged with lots of Ethiopian exoticism on the horns! The blend of hard groove and offbeat reeds is mighty nice – and really makes this one stand out from the pack! "Kem Dahg" continues the exotic vibe, but with a groove that's got this fast-stepping, vamping rhythm that's almost borrowed from The JBs! 7-inch, Vinyl record
