JB HornsI Like It Like That ... CD
Soulciety (Germany), 1993. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from the years when most of the rest of the world had forgotten about the JBs – but Fred Wesley and the group were still going strong! The set's a great meeting of two funky generations – the classic James Brown funk of the late 60s and early 70s, and some of the revival modes that sprung up on the London scene at the end of the 80s – heard to best effect here in the way the album was recorded – with core horns from Wesley on trombone, Maceo Parker on alto sax, and Pee Wee Ellis on tenor – plus added London grooves in a real Brand New Heavies mode! The groove is nice and hard, and the album's way more of a classic-styled funk outing than most of the other JBs-revival titles from the same stretch – thanks to rock-solid production from the Soulciety family too. Noel McKoy, Jay Ella Ruth, and other Brit funk talents help out on the set – and titles include "What Goes Around", "Chillin With Fred", "Picture On The Wall", "Homeboy", "Push", and "I Like It Like That".

✨✧ Ray & His CourtRay & His Court ... LP
Sound Triangle, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Walter JenkinsBack In My Life/Funky Walk (The Monkey Walk) ... 7-inch
Fader Kat/Tramp (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A couple of the only cuts we've ever heard by Walter Jenkins and a should-be classic Funky 45! "Back In My Life" has a great sound that's stripped down on the instrumental tip – a tight little bass, drums, guitar and horns backdrop – but it really soars in the vocal realm, with super soulful lead by Walter and gorgeous female backing vocals. Great stuff! "Funky Walk" is just the kind JB-inspired stormer you'd expect from the title – a real floor shaker! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... $21.99 24.98
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!

Tanya RiaDo The Smasher/Love You Didn't Want ... 7-inch
Kumi/Jazzaggression (Estonia), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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

Fred Wesley & The Horny HornsBlow For Me, A Toot To You ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
After Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker came head to head with James Brown in the mid 70s, they broke off and formed the Horny Horns contingent – a tight funky backing section that's featured on a number of late 70s funk sessions, and which also recorded some extremely nice numbers on their own! This first album has the group working with George Clinton and Bootsy, who was a friend of Fred and Maceo from the old days – and who could really use the tight playing of some James Brown-trained musicians to smooth out their groove. This album was the group's first – and it's still their best – forging a massive new funk sound with the best elements of the old JBs fused through Clinton and Bootsy's P-Funk filter. Includes the monster funk cut "Fourplay" – a standout classic that features a funky break, hard solos, and all the other elements you'd need to make a great funky instrumental. Other tracks include "Between The Sheets", "Peace Fugue", and a version of "Up For The Down Stroke". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isley BrothersGet Into Something ... CD
Epic/T Neck, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album by the Isley Brothers – easily their rarest, and probably their funkiest! The record's pushing the T-Neck funk sound to the limit, adding in some heavy horns to the tracks, and really egging on the vocals of the group with some totally hard-hitting arrangements by George Patterson. The whole thing's got a really sinister feel – with horns replacing the guitars on some of the group's other albums, carving out these dark little lines that lead their vocals over the top of funky choppy rhythms that will blow your mind! Includes the excellent cut "Get Into Something", which sounds like a direct ripoff of "The Grunt", by the JBs (or is it the other way around?). Other good ones include "I Got To Find Me One", "Take Inventory", "Girls Will Be Girls", and more! CD
