MaterialThird Power ... CD
Axiom, 1991. Used ... $4.99
As with much of the work in his career, Bill Laswell assmebles an all star cast, this one based around the crew he'd pull from as he explored some of the heavier more tripped out directions that seemed to guide his work through the 90s. On the one hand he's tapping into the P-Funk axis with Bootsy, Gary Shider, Mudbone Cooper and Bernie Worrell, while still using some of the world music and reggae musicians he recruited nteh 80s, like Sly & Robbie and Aiyb Deng, plus the JB's horns withMaceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. Add a touch of avant jazz from Olu Dara and Henry Threadgill, plus a host of vocalists including the Jungle Brothers, Jalaluddin Nuriddin of the Last Poets and Shabba Ranks and you've got a pretty heavy cast of characters. Includes "Reality", "Playin With Fire", "Cosmic Slop", "E-Pluribus-Unum", "Drive-By", "Power OF Soul (Black Chant)", "Mellow Mood" and "Glory". CD

Perez Prado with Don AlfioLove Child (plus bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $15.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl also includes the full album on CD!)

Gene AndersonGigolo ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2015 (delayed)
Gene Anderson's "Gigolo" combines the hard driving, JB's Horny Horns vibe that was killing on so many pulsating dance floors at the time, with a bit more of tightly thumping soul vibe. But it still slams just as hard as our favorite, grimier funk of the period! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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".

Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

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!

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

Derobe Dance BandGogoplata/Kem Dahg ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
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

✨✧ In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Isley BrothersGet Into Something ... CD
Epic/T Neck, 1970. Used ... $9.99
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

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!

✨✧ JBsGimme Some More/The Rabbit Got The Gun ... 7-inch
People, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A classic JBs single – with a non-LP b-side! "Gimme Some More" is a stone classic by the group – a proud and stomping funk song, with a catchy refrain that starts from the first beat, and which really wails as the tune goes on! "Rabbit" is a rare one with an unusual groove – fast, almost tribal rhythms, bass plucked super-strongly with horns blasting out a nice chase groove over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Pazant Brothers & The Beaufort ExpressLoose & Juicy ... LP
Vanguard, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary funk album – essential for any fan of hard 70s grooves! Ed and Al Pazant were the funky horn players who made Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers such a great group during the late 60s – and their working here on their one and only album as a group – a massive set of hard-cracking funk tunes that never lets up for a minute! Al's trumpet and Ed's alto were like the twin-engine horns of Maceo and Fred Wesley during the best years of the JBs – and they're grooving here in a tight style that shifts effortlessly between harder, funky 45-type numbers – and other tracks that have a bit more of an electric jazzy feel. The whole thing's great – filled with funky classics – and titles include "Skunk Juice", "A Gritty Nitty", "Loose & Juicy", "Toe Jam", "Clabber Biscuits", "Spooky", and "Work Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dokkerman & The Turkeying FellazIllegal Move ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
