Perez Prado with Don AlfioLove Child ... CD
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
Sound Triangle, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
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".

Ray & His Musical CourtCookie Crumbs – The Greatest Hits ... CD
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!

✨✧ Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersGet It Right Part 3/I Touched The Clouds ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 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

JBs ReunionBring The Funk On Down ... CD
Instinct/P-Vine, 2001. Used ... $11.99
Although we always wince at the idea of a JBs reunion album (and there have been a bit too many in the past 10 years), this one isn't as bad as you might think. Fred Wesley is handling production, and the group includes Jabo Starks, St Clair Pickney, Bobby Byrd, Clyde Stubblefield, and Wesley himself. The overall sound is more Horny Horns than JBs – and with vocals on many cuts, the record feels a bit like Wesley's House Party album from 1980. In fact, the main problem is really the vocals – as the group really needs someone like James Brown to sing lead on most tracks! Tracks include "Soul Men", "Tag Along", "Born To Groove", "Do The Doo", "What About The Music", "Carry On", and "Dynaflo". 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!

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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Soul SnatchersScratch My Itch ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A solid second album from the Soul Snatchers – a confident, soulful set and the Dutch funky soul collective – bettering their debut and delivering one of our favorite records on the Unique label! Like some of our other favorite contemporary combos, The Soul Snatchers snatch from a diverse goodie bag of influences, and they do it with modern freshness and style to spare. There's some unstoppable JBs styled heaters, groove-based organ soul, vocal tunes and instrumentals. They have a pair of great vocalists in Curtis T & Jimi Bellmartin and they do their thing with some uncommon instrumentation on top of the cooking horns, drums and rhythm – vibes and violin, for instance, plus some guest female backing vocals on several tunes. A winner! "Do You Wanna Get Down", "Who I Am", "Good To Me"., "The Right Track", "Finish What You Started", "Show Me Love", "The Lick", "The Chase", "Soul To Soul", "Good & Plenty" and more. CD

✨✧ 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!)
