✨✧ Lack Of AfroMusic For Adverts ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group! The title's a reference to older Brit sound library albums, but the overall feel of the record is more soul-oriented than previous work by the group – making use of some especially strong lead vocals from Jack Tyson-Charles on about half the album's tracks, and mixing other singers and instrumental modes on all the others. The tunes are all pretty upbeat and bouncy – a mix of 60s and 70s styles, jumbled up in a way that's playful and catchy, yet still with plenty of funk appeal too. Titles include "No Guts No Glory", "Freedom", "One For The Trouble", "Recipe For Love", "Coco", "The Gypsy", "Here We Go Again", and "Missing Me". CD

✨✧ VariousBlack Man's Cry – The Inspiration Of Fela Kuti (CD & book) ... CD
Now Again, 1970s/1990s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Covers and music inspired by the towering figure in Afrofunk – the great Fela Kuti – rare 70s material a few modern cuts recorded in Nigeria, Trinidad, Ghana, Colombia, Germany and America – some previously unreleased, and all wonderful representations of the far-reaching influence of Fela!

The CD version is bound in a mini-hardcover book like package – with nice notes on Fela himself and the the influence he had on the material herein by Stones Throw/Now Again honcho Egon – and tracks include "Shacalao" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Woman Pin Down" by Dan Snatch And His Atomic 8 Dance Band, "Never Trust A Woman" by Bola Johnson, "Black Man's Cry" by Mosco Tiles Fonclaire Steel Orchestra, "Egbi/Black Man's Cry (Medley)" by Lever Brothers Gay Flamingos, "Comencemos" by Phirpo Y Sus Caribes, "Up Side Down" by Daktaris, "Lullaby For Lagos" by Whitefield Brothers and more.

VariousJazz Dispensary – Purple Funk ... LP
Fantasy, 1970s. New Copy ... $22.99 24.98
We're not sure how we feel about the pot-clinic presentation of the package – but there's no denying that the Jazz Dispensary series is a great choice of classic jazz and funk grooves! The material is from a range of different labels that all fall under the Concord/Fantasy umbrella these days – labels like Prestige, Stax, Milestone, Volt, and Fantasy – plus a few sweet cuts from other imprints too – and as a whole, the series is a great vinyl-only presentation of material that was usually reissued only on CD by the Fantasy family back in the 90s, when they finally discovered the funk in their rich catalog from the late 60s and early 70s. Titles on this Purple Funk volume include "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Mucho Chupar" by David Axelrod, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Hihache" by Lafayette Afro Rock Band, "A Gritty Nitty" by The Pazant Brothers, "Kool Is Back" by Funk Inc, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Hump" by Patrice Rushen, "Dear Limmertz (12" mix)" by Azymuth, and "Patch It Up" by Roy Lee Johnson & The Villagers.

✨✧ Madlib & OthersMadlib's Medicine Show No 3 – Beat Konducta In Africa ... CD
Madlib Invazion, 2010. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw crackling hip hop funk beatcraft at its deepest from mighty Madlib – working in his Beat Konducta style for this third entry in the epic Madlib's Medicine Show Series! Beat Konducta In Africa is a hazy hip hop instrumental set from 'Lib (lest you thought it might be a funky compilation of rare African material) with some additional mixing from J Rocc – based on rare African vinyl. The sound is pure Madlib/Beat Konducta heady hip hop funk – recognizable as being spun from and inspired by African material, and impeccably so, with that instantly identifiable, exploratory Madlib sonic stamp. He looks far beyond Afrobeat and funk sources, with some raw funk rock beats, psych, garage and more with some trippy vocal samples – and he's building up from blueprints records originally pressed all over Africa – Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Botswana and Ivory Coast. But too much mention of the source material risks making this sound like a compilation or a mix set, when it's Madlib all the way! Titles include "Motherland", "Raw Introduction To Afreaka", "Warrior's Theme", "Street Hustler", "Afritonic" (Pts 1 & 2), "Tradition", "Blackfire", "Obtaive", "Mtima", "African Bounce", "Freedom Play", "Natural Sound Waves", "Unika (Outro)" and many more. 43 tracks on the CD version, which includes 6 bonus tracks.

OsunladeParadigm ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 2001. Used ... $11.99
A great album, featuring work by New York-based Osunlade – a house artist with a strong taste for classic Afro-Funk influences, which criss cross his work along with bits of classic Latin and Brazilian styles from the 70s. Osunlade's music is positive, spiritual, and uplifting – in all the real sense of those terms, without the throwaway tricks that others working under the style have come to use. Titles include "Ocho", "Beloved", "Oxossi Da Focha Branca", "Morning Glory", "Blackman", and "When This Feelin". CD
(Out of print. Includes slipcase.)

✨✧ VariousHustle – Reggae Disco – Kingston London New York (expanded 3LP edition – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $28.99 34.98
A fantastic collection that looks at the relationship between American soul and reggae in a very unique way – not the early crossovers of soul and rocksteady in the 60s, but a big wave of disco-inspired sounds in the 70s! The set brings together some great Jamaican and British versions of American club tracks from the late 70s and early 80s, plus some soul cuts from earlier years – often done with rhythms that are slower and more bad-stepping, in a true reggae mode – but with songs and lyrics that are lifted right from bit hits by artists like Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and others! The mix of modes is wonderful – and maybe comes across even better than on some of the Afro disco records of the period – thanks to a great track selection, in the usual Soul Jazz standard. Titles include "I'm Every Woman" by Latisha, "In The Rain" by rRnest Ranglin, "Reggae Beat Goes On" by Family Choice, "Ring My Bell" by Blood Sisters, "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" by Derrick Laro & Trinity, "Do It Nice & Easy" by Chariot Riders, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Black Harmony, "Upside Down" by Carol Cool, "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Sharon Forrester, "Rappers Delight" by Xanadu & Sweet Lady, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by Risco Connection, "Am I The Same Girl" by Charmaine Burnette, and "Be Thankful For What You Got" by One Blood. LP, Vinyl record album
