VariousMasterpiece Volume 18 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Clubby funk galore – as this great series keeps on going strong! The tunes here are all early 80s, and all have a tight post-disco approach to the dancefloor – that great style that we also know as 80s groove – with a mix of modern soul, electro, and other underground modes bubbling through in the rhythms from time to time. Most tracks are by familiar artists, but aren't exactly hits – just well-remembered grooves from the time – with cuts that include "Just Like Dreamin" by Terri Wells, "Too Much Too Fast" by Vera Brown & The Rich Girls, "Love Is On The One" by Xavier, "Dance Floor (edit)" by Zapp, "Gimme A Little Sign" by Kenny James, "Baby I Want You Back" by Tavares, "Cutie Pie" by One Way, "Wanting You" by Starpoint, "Wide Open Up Your Love" by Wreckin Crew, "Lover In You" by Sugar Hill Gang, and "Together Forever" by Intrigue.

VariousSoul Togetherness 2008 – Fifteen Modern Soul Room Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2008. Used ... $6.99
A great collection from the Soul Togetherness scene – a name that can always be trusted to deliver a smoothly grooving tune! Most of the work here is contemporary, but the set includes a few classics too – key cuts that help support the older-styled vibe that's present in the newer cuts here – an approach to soul music that echoes some of the best American work of the late 70s/early 80s modern years – that smooth-without-slick approach that we've always loved so much. Titles include "Let The Love" by Bennson, "Amazing" by Reel People, "Tonight" by Peo with Mirjam, "Woman In Love" by Sophia Nelson, "Caught Up In A Whirlwind" by Richard Stepp, "When Love Comes Calling" by George Gbenson, "Cuz It's You Girl" by James Walsh Gypsy Band, "What Have I Got To Lose" by Jean Wells, "My People" by Teddy Pendergrass, "B Side Of Love" by Gina Foster, and "Adore U" by Sherree Brown.

✨✧ VariousBest Disco In Town – 15 Original Discoteque Smash Hits ... CD
Empire/BMG, Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweeeeet collection of rare disco numbers – the kind of "between the cracks" tunes that were big back in the day, but which have oddly been ignored in the reissue market. There's plenty of great Miami numbers on the set, plus some other strong tracks from further up the east coast – all laid out back to back in a hip 15 track set that will fill up a lot of holes in your record collection! Titles include "That's The Meaning" by Beautiful Bend, "Never Let Go" by Eastbound Expressway, "My Claim To Fame" by James Wells, "24 Hours A Day" by Barbara Pennington, "My Destination Is Love" by LJ Johnson, "Blue Danube Hustle" by Rice & Beans Orchestra, "I Wanna Make It On My Own" by Evelyn Thomas, "Kidnap Me" by Loretta Stokes, "No Way Out" by Doris Jones, "Miami Heat Wave" by 7th Ave, "Keep It On Ice" by Croisette, "Come Into My Heart" by USA European Connection, and "Standing In The Shadows Of Love" by Amant.

✨✧ VariousSweet Soul Music 1963 – 30 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Mama Didn't Lie" by Jan Bradley, "Easier Said Than Done" by The Essex, "Harlem Shuffle" by Bob & Earl, "It's All Right" by The Impressions, "Walking The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "The Love Of My Man" by Theola Kilgore, "Got You On My Mind" by Cookie & The Cupcakes, "Two Lovers" by Mary Wells, "Pushover" by Etta James, "Just One Look" by Doris Troy, and "Shake A Tail Feather" by The Five Du-Tones.

✨✧ VariousSoul Classics All Night! – A Collection Of Rare & Hard To Find Soul Gems ... CD
Essential, 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual collection of rare soul material – one that dips deep into the years of 50s R&B, but also includes some great gems from the 60s and 70s too! The package shows the ever-growing interest in the link between rare soul and pre-soul material – particularly the kind of cuts from the 78rpm era that set the scene for later funk and deeper styles. There's less of a geographic or label-based structure to the set than usual for this sort of compilation – but that also makes for a pretty exciting batch of tracks – almost as if your friend with a collection of rare singles made you a special mix tape! Titles include "When I'm With You" by Ida James, "Dining In Chinatown" by Jennifer Wells, "If I Had A Lover Like You" by Joe Bragg, "Baby Who's Been Foolin You" by LJ Waters, "You'll Miss Me" by Lester Young & The California Playboys, "I'm Sorry I Hurt You" by Nat Phillips, "Love Can Slip Away" by Chuck Bernard, and "I Need Your Love" by The Dynamic Beltones.

VariousGodfather's R&B – James Brown's Productions 1962 to 1967 ... CD
Smash/BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
A host of wonderful work produced by James Brown – most of it by a range of different singers, and one by The Godfather himself! The collection brings together some of the earliest James Brown productions – mid 60s tracks recorded for King and Smash Records, most of which aren't nearly as well known as later JB productions for the People and Polydor labels! As with that later work, all the grooves here are right in the same territory that James was hitting himself – upbeat, funky, and stone out of sight soul – all with plenty of rough edges, and backings from the same tight core of musicians that were helping out Brown on his recordings. The package is a real treasure – and is a great complement to the James Brown Singles collections from the Hip-O Select label – proof that even in these early days, James was clearly the hardest working man in show business – given all his time in the studio with other artists! 22 tracks in all – including "I Found Out" and "I'll Keep Pressing On" by Bobby Byrd, "That's When I Cry" and "If You Don't Think" by Anna King, "I Don't Care" and "Unexplainable" by Dizzy Jones, "Got No Excuse" and "If You Don't Work You Can't Eat" by James Crawford, "Do You Really Want To Rescue Me (part 1)" by Elsie Mae, "Lookie Lookie Lookie" by The Jewells, "Wide Awake In A Dream" and "Nobody Cares" by Vicki Anderson, "Devil's Den" by The Poets, "It Hurts To Be In Love" by Yvonne Fair, "That's The Spirit" by Rev Willingham, "Faith" by The Five Royales, "I Cried" by Tammy Montgomery, "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)" by Al Brisco Clark, and "New Breed (The Boo Ga Loo) (part 1)" by James Brown.

James BrownJames Brown At The Garden ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
Not as well-known as James Brown's live albums from the Apollo, but a really cooking set from the 60s that keeps up a plenty hard groove all the way through! As with most of James' live dates, the tracks here move at a clip that's often even faster than the studio work – played to perfection by the group with razor-sharp tightness that's simply breathtaking – possibly even more so in this environment. And although the crowd noise swells up at time, there's definitely less of the "fake" live sound of other JB albums of this nature – just a gritty little live party that blows the speakers out from all the action at the low end! Titles include versions of "Ain't That A Groove", "I Got You", "Bring It Up", and "Out Of Sight" – plus the groovy "Hip Bag '67" and "Let Yourself Go". Nice cover, too – with a back photo that has a picture of James and Hubert Humphrey, and a front cover that's a cool cartoony image of New York near the Garden! CD
