Brother SoulTrain Song/Mr Boogie ... 7-inch
Fraternity, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

James BrownAin't It Funky ... CD
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
Also available Ain't It Funky ... LP 19.99

Derobe Dance BandGogoplata/Kem Dahg ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, 2014. New Copy ... $3.99
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

DeRobert & The Half-TruthsI Got Burned/Nashville Country Bump ... 7-inch
GED Soul, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
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

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.)

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!)

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.)

✨✧ In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... 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
