Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersGet It Right Part 3/I Touched The Clouds ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the hardest, heaviest cuts ever cut by the great Rickey Calloway – thanks to some super-intense backing from the Soul Surfers – who are at their best JB mode here! Guitar and horns and everything comes right down on the beat and bassline – and Rickey's vocals rival the best of the classic funky 45 generation, too! A cut that you'd swear was vintage, but which is really the best of the contemporary underground. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Perez Prado with Don AlfioLove Child ... CD CD format
Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Whoa! Funky work from Afro Cuban percussionist and bandleader Pantaleon Perez Prado – sharing credit with singer Don Alfio – with a surprising wealth of spacey funk in the mix! Before your mind is rendered full- blown by this obscure, funky record, we need to let you know that Pantaleon is not the Perez Prado of "King Of Mambo" fame, but his younger brother – and while the billing is the result of some commercial sleight-of-hand at the time, there's no faking the funky Latin mastery of the recordings – it's genuinely strong stuff! The funkiest numbers have nice and raw vocals by Don Alfio – sung in English, and complete with gritty soul grunts – on cuts that feel like a Latin-ized takes on JB, Sly Stone and others in the funk canon. The instrumental tracks have a more varied approach, with lots of searing psych soul touches to the guitars and horns. Very cool! Titles include "Love Child", "Bahia", "Chato", "Smack", "Imperfect", "Reaction", "Free Time", "Chicago Banana", "Carmen", "Circle" and "Drive Car". CD
(Vinyl also includes the full album on CD!)

Ray & His CourtRay & His Court ... LP LP format
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".

Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray & co. 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! Multi-instrumentalist Ray Fernandez got his start largely as a percussionist, and worked with titans like Mongo Santamaria and Bud Powell before fronting his own group. 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! 22 tracks running well north of the hour mark: "Cookie Crumbs", "Soul Freedom", "El Alacarn", "El Bimbo", "Brazil", "Sunny", "Tu Mirar", "Chega Mais, "More More More", and tons more!

Like, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A socking soul classic – and a very funky tune! Rex and crew punch their way through a tremendous groove here – beating hard with a rough and ready sound, and calling out the track with a mix of organ and horns that's outta site! There's a completely great funky 45 style going on here – the kind of non-stop, two part groover we always dig! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownAin't It Funky ... CD CD format
King/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
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! CD

JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Rare late 70s Latin soul from Jade! "The Siesta Is Over" is a killer mix of styles – anchored strongly by funk, thanks of the limber bass line, JBs-inspired horns, raw drums and organ – but it's got a sunny vibe, too, thanks the groovy male and female harmony vocals. The flip is a nice cover of "Viva Tirado" – which is probably best known for El Chicano's version – and Jade does it justice, again with the groovy organ, and solid vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nite-LitersA-Nal-Y-Sis ... CD CD format
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!

New JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP LP format
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!)

New Maceo & All The King's MenDoing Their Own Thing ... CD CD format
House Of The Fox/Snapper (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great great funky stuff! This album was recorded during a period when Maceo left James Brown's band for a few years, and struck out on his own with a firey little combo that was every bit as funky as the JBs! The record captures the group at the height of their powers, and it's a must, must, must-have for any fan of the the James Brown sound – as it's got lots of hard drums, rumbling basslines, and some killer work on funky horns! Funny, funky, and a little bit jazzy too – and with the cuts "Funky Women", "Got to Getcha", "Southwick", "Mag-Poo", "I Remember Mr Banks", "Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself", "Shake It Baby", and "Better Half". Reissued with the original cover! CD

New Soul SevenEverything Is Everything With The Soul Seven EP ... LP LP format
Soultex/Now Again, 1969/1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Texas – a stunning 4 track ep, featuring some great work by the mighty Soul Seven! The group have been virtually unknown for years, but thanks to the efforts of the crate-digging team at Stones Throw, these guys are finally getting their due – and for good reason too! The group play in a fast and fierce blend of guitars and horns – hard-stepping an instrumental groove with the intensity of classic work by the JBs, or of the King's Men combo that was headed up by Maceo in the years he was away from James Brown. The set's got 3 studio tracks – all rare singles – "Mr Chicken", "The Cissy's Thang", and "Southside Funk" – plus an extended super-jam from the South Dallas Pop Festival in 1970. That track goes on long and strong – and really shows how a group like this could open up in a live setting – taking grooves way way past the short 2 and 3 minute funk tunes known only from their singles! LP, Vinyl record album

New James BrownIt's A New Day – Let A Man Come In ... LP LP format
King, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling energy here that's totally great – dynamic, powerful calls from James at the top of most tunes – and incredibly sharp work on horns and rhythm from the band – cutting grooves and turning lines like no other combo in the business, all with a great mix of deep soul and hard funk! The album features the 7 minute killer version of "Let a Man Come In & Do The Popcorn", plus "World (parts 1 & 2)", "It's A New Day (parts 1 & 2)", "Give It Up or Turn It Loose", "If I Ruled The World", "The Man In The Glass (part 1)", and "I'm Not Demanding (part 1)". A treasure trove of funk and soul! LP, Vinyl record album
