✨✧ VariousNu Yorica ! – Culture Clash In New York City 1970-1977 (20th anniversary edition) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and the 2CD set is filled with gems that include "La Trompeta Y La Flauta" by Cachao, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and "Macho" by Machito Orchesta – plus "Las Negritas De Caranval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Mamey Colorao" by Ocho, "Aftershower Funk" by Joe Bataan, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Babilonia" by Ricardo Marrero, "Anabaco" by Grupo Folklorico & Experimental, "Little Rico" by Bobby Vince Paunetto, "Condiciones Que Existen" by Eddie Palmieri, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero, and "Tornado" by Ocho.

VariousAlright! – Black American Dance Music From The Disco Era ... CD
BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A tight collection of uptempo funk and disco-driven soul tunes – with a selection that goes way past the usual dancefloor favorites! We're not sure how to read the title (which seems to have some sort of "inside take" on black culture in America) so we'll write that off to the overzealous imagination of the British compilers of the set – but we will say that the package includes some great numbers that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise, including a few previously unissued tunes by artists on the Westbound label! The groove is upbeat on most tracks, with plenty of jazzy flourishes and a soulful approach to disco. Titles include "Disco Booty" by Melvin Sparks, "Love Don't Come Easy" by New Jersey Connection, "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight" by Sylvester, "Free Man" by South Shore Commission, "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" by The Clark Sisters, "Latin Disco" by The Counts, "Alvin Stone (The Birth & Death Of A Gangster)" by Fantastic Four, "Moon Trek" by Mike Theodore, "Sadie" by Joe Bataan, "Sure Can't Go To The Moon" by CJ & Co, and "The Magic Man" by King Errison.

✨✧ Ronnie WalkerSomeday ... CD
Philly Archives, Mid 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Prepare to discover a mellow soul genius! Ronnie Walker may not be one of the biggest names in Philly soul, but he cut some incredible singles during the late 60s that are a perfect example of the sweeter side of the City of Brotherly Love. Ronnie's got a warm falsetto voice that works perfectly with the harmony-oriented arrangements of the tracks – singing over the top in a heartbreaking style that reminds us of the late 60s soul work of Joe Bataan, or of some of the better underground singers in the New Jersey scene of the early 70s. Ronnie's work was mostly relegated to singles, but this wonderfully-done CD brings together 22 tracks that he recorded during the years 1966 to 1972, and just about all of them are excellent! The set's got some great unreleased material, plus a- and b-sides that we've never been able to track down in the original – all packaged with a great set of notes that will fill you in on all you've missed in Ronnie's career. Some of the material's at a midtempo pace, and some of it is at that perfect slow east coast ballad pace – perfect for a hot summer night, with the wind blowing in through the curtains. Titles include "Really Really Love You", "Ronnie's Theme", "Someday", "Love is An Illusion", "Everything Is Everything", "Precious", "Now I Cry", "Thanks To You", "I'm Saying Goodbye", and "Now There Is You". Amazing rare soul – and the reason we totally support CD reissues! CD

✨✧ VariousEl Barrio – Latin Funk – Ny Yorican Funk 1968 to 1976 ... CD
Fania, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk with a Latin groove – a wonderful mixing of modes that's completely fresh and unique! The set follows nicely off other El Barrio explorations of late 60s Latin Soul, and traces the groove that emerged in its wake – a blending of hipper funky styles in the 70s with some of the bolder, prouder Latin modes of the time! Unlike Latin Soul, which was concentrated enough to get strong attention at the time, Latin Funk was often a bit more dispersed – just a track here and there, scattered over albums by both older artists and lesser-known newcomers – some of whom gave more famous acts a real run for their money. This overstuffed collection does a great job of pulling together tracks from a variety of different albums over an 8 year span – and it's a perfect introduction to an under-compiled genre that's finally getting its due! Track selection and notes are by the mighty Adrian Gibson – and titles include "You Need Help" by Monguito Santamaria, "Identify Yourself" by Cafe, "Dynamite" by Harvey Averne, "I'm Satisfied" by Joe Bataan, "Together" by Ray Barretto, "Guajiro Bacan" by Azuquita, "Funky Felix" by Seguida, "I Got The Feeling" by Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul Drives, "There You Go" by Fania All Stars, "I'm Gonna Get To You Yet" by TNT Boys, "Black Dice" by Mongo Santamaria, and "Hot Pants" by Gilberto Cruz.

✨✧ VariousSalseando – Selected By Raphael Sebbag ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A rich serving of salsa gems from the legendary Salsoul/Mericana Records label – all hand-picked by Japanese DJ/collector/musician Raphael Sebbag! 20 years ago, Raphael worked similar magic with the huge Fania catalog – turning out a series of key compilations that also accompanied his work in United Future Organization – and now Sebbag takes an overdue look at the early years of Salsoul – that time when the label wasn't yet putting out disco music, and instead created a very strong catalog of some of the best underground work on the New York scene! The music here is a great indie representation of sounds that are a lot less familiar than those during the big years of Fania – and as such, there may well be a lot more experimentation going on – more chances with new ideas, and other great elements that make these tracks really shine. The 2CD set features a whopping 38 tracks in all – and titles include "El Fumigador" and "El Que Tenga Sabor" by Latin Dimensions, "Soy Guinero" and "Sabrosona" by Roberto Torres, "Una Pregunta" and "Tambores Pa Yemaya" by Raul Marrero, "People Make The World Go Round" by Saoco, "Cuando En Pesar Se Convierta La Risa" and "El Galleton" by Tempo 70, "Soul Makossa" by Johnny Zamot, "Un Coro Africano" by Orquesta Power, "Borracho No Vale" by Rey Roig, "No Puedo Mas" by La Fantastica, "Decidete" by Libre, "Chambelona" by Cachao, "Muchacho Ordinario" by Joe Bataan, "Ese Eres Tu" by Ray Rodriguez, and "Aguanta La Bronca Compay" by Los Jigmaguas.
