✨✧ Orchestre Rail BandMoko-Diolo/Tamadiara ... 7-inch
Goma Gringa (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from the Rail Band – a cut that comes on with the full-on group intensity of the JBs – but which also has this wild scatting vocal over the top! The horns and rhythm are tremendous – right out of the best James Brown bag, and all elements coming down totally on the groove – which makes that scatting vocal even more compelling with its strong sense of freedom! "Tamadira" has an equally funky vibe – again almost JB-like in the style, but maybe a bit looser too – and with a lead vocal that really seems to be blowing out the speakers in a great way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
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!)

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
(Limited edition.)

BreakestraLive Mix Part 2 ... CD
Stones Throw, 2001. Used ... $5.99
Funky madness! This one's exactly what is says – a live mix, recorded by this hip funky combo, sort of a mixtape of classic funky tunes, all slammed together in one massive performance! Breakestra run through some of the biggest funky 45s of the 60s and 70s, jamming hard in one live to tape performance that takes us back to the classic days of the JBs grooving in the studio with James Brown. Plenty of choppy guitars, hot bubbly organ, sweet keyboard licks, and hard heavy horns throughout! CD

MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 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! CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

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

✨✧ In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's a great break at the beginning of this one – the kind that you'd be more likely to find in the middle of a tune, as a breakdown – but which almost makes this one feel like you're starting out with the funkier "part 2" of the tune! The cut's an instrumental with some heavy horns that blow in once it gets going – somewhere in a space between 70s Afro Funk and The JBs! "MTA" has some nice trippy bits on the guitar at the beginning – and a snapping rhythm to start the whole thing out, ala "Time Is Tight" – before the moody horns come in and make the whole thing their own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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 ... $12.99
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". CD
