VariousTrip – Created By Tom Middleton – Vol 2 ... CD
Family Recordings (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A mighty heady Trip from the mighty Tom Middleton – and a set that's every bit as great as his first entry in the series! The overall feel here is a bit more contemporary than Tom's first Trip collection – but the mix of modes, styles, and sounds is equally diverse – with tunes next to tunes next to tunes in ways that we never would have expected – all unfolding with a creative sense of joy and delight in music that's really amazing! As with other volumes, this package is overflowing with songs – 46 in all, over the 2CDs – and mixed together in ways that are relatively subtle, and which still leave most of the core tune intact. Titles include "This Is Your Life" by Laurie Johnson, "Batacuda Dub" by Skeewiff, "The Galactica Suite" by Simon Grey, "Finally" by Novika, "Bucovina" by Shantel, "We Can Fly" by Nicolay, "Left Bank Two" by Wayne Hill, "Barbatuques" by Barbappapa's Groove, "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana, "Follow The Leader" by Eric B & Rakim, "The Wisp" by Simian, "Elle Et Moi" by Cicada, "Taking Me Over" by Schmoov, "Hairy Trees" by Goldfrapp, "Transmit Fantastic" by Danny Breaks, "Here's What's Left" by RJD2, "SIP" by Boozoo Bajou, "The Martian Chronicles" by Stanley Myers, and "The Other World" by Jakatta.

✨✧ Kathy SledgeHeart ... CD
Epic, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Sledge without any Sisters – working here on her own in a great little album from the early 90s! From the 70s onward, Kathy's vocals were usually heard as part of her famous family quartet – but with all that experience under her belt, she also steps forth as a great solo act, too – bringing a nice degree of depth to the album's well-crafted contemporary soul arrangements! Tunes run a nice sort of gamut – from percolating pop numbers to some mellower ballads – and titles include "Heart", "Take Me Back To Love Again", "Pleasure", "Careful", "Baby Baby Baby", "I Think Of You", and "Reason For This". CD also features a bonus radio remix of "Take Me Back To Love Again". CD

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The Mgs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Curcuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

✨✧ VariousBest Of Disco Demands – A Special Collection Of Rare 1970s Dance Music (5CD box set) ... CD
Million Dollar Disco/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The dancefloor just got a whole lot funkier – thanks to an incredible selection of rare disco and club tracks from the best years of the genre! The set list here is really amazing – the kind of tunes that rarely turn up this easily, and never in such a cohesive package – and our hats are off to compiler Al Kent for putting together such a wonderfully tasty set! Most numbers here are from the mid to late 70s – and showcase a soulfully grooving approach to disco – one that's free from the cliches of the mainstream side of the genre, and which features plenty of real soul vocals alongside uptempo funky instrumentation that usually features a few odd twists and turns! Most numbers are edited by Al Kent, sometimes in very subtle ways, and include "cover ups" billed to other artists – and the package essentially brings together material from Kent's previous CD series of the same name – but with revised track order, wonderful packaging, and a bonus poster! There's a whopping 45 tracks in all – with cuts that include "Love Is All Around" by Sizzle, "I've Been Searching" by Arts & Crafts, "Get Ready" by Allan Harris & Perpetual Motion, "Sweet Jazz Music" by Panache, "To Be With You" by Jimmy Sabater, "Funkathone" by The People's Workshop, "Just Friends" by Silver Platinum & Gold, "Why In The World Do They Keep On" by Executive Suite, "Dancing Free" by Hot Ice, "Doing Our Own Thang" by Al Tanner, "Fear" by Arthur King, "Party Together" by Superbs, "How Can I Tell Her" by Curtis, "Giving It All To You" by Cheryl Berdell, "We've Got It" by Sylvano Santorio, and "Sound Of Disco Rock" by Stringfield Family.

✨✧ VariousReady Or Not – Deep Jazz Grooves From The CBC Radio Canada Archives 1967-1977 ... CD
Do Right (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at a scene that's hardly ever gotten its due – and a wealth of beautiful jazz tracks from our brothers to the north! Canada's always done a better job of supporting its artists with national assistance than the US – so it's no surprise that some of the best jazz recordings of the Canadian scene come from the archives of it's state-owned broadcasting company – a key force in supporting great music of all types, but especially important here when it comes to jazz! The work on the set is all hand-picked by John Kong – of both the Do Right label, and the international groove underground – and it's all chosen with an ear towards the kind of older jazz tracks that are playing big on the international scene these days. Think of the inspiration for Schema, or the jazz tracks selected by Gilles Peterson, and you'll have a great idea of the grooves on this set! Titles include "Star Of India" by Electric Ninja Group, "Saphir" by Nick Ayoub, "Ready Or Not" by Kathryn Moses, "Lawrence Of Arabia" by Fred Stone, "Voices" by Al Michalek Quartet, "Consuelo" by Pierre Nadeau Trio, "The Family" by Billy Robinson, and "Soya" by Pierre Leduc.

✨✧ Attila ZollerJazz Soundtracks – Original Music From The Arthouse Films Of Hans Jurgen Poland 1962 to 1967 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest German jazz guitarists – heard here in some of his grooviest work of the 60s – an amazing batch of material recorded for the art house films of director Hansjurgen Pohland! Zoller already had a modern tone by the time of these recordings – a sublime sound on the guitar that rivaled that of Billy Bauer with the Lee Konitz group of the 50s, but which was also freer, and open to rich new ideas too – especially from a rhythmic and tonal standpoint, which always keeps Zoller's work compelling! Attila's way more than just another jazzy player on the instrument – and film material like this really lets him stretch his imagination – and unlock a whole whose of tones and colors that are quite imagistic in nature. Most tracks are played by a small combo led by Zoller – often working in front of the screen as images passed by – scenes from films that include Katz Und Maus, Tamara, and The Bread Of Our Early Years. This set marks the first release of the material actually recorded for those films on record – and titles include "Family Bricks", "Pilenz", "Road Song", "Minesweeper", "Cold Fusion", "Adam's Apple", "Hedwig's Departure", "Mousetip Strut", and "Mahlke".
