El Michels Affair with Lee Fields4th Chamber/Snakes ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $7.99
El Michels take it back to basics here – and serve up some wickedly funky sounds on "4th Chamber" – a cut that's got great heavy drums at the bottom, but just the kind of spooky keyboard line you might expect from its Wu-Tang title reference! "Snakes" is quite different – a vocal cut that has an even slower funk approach – and raspy vocals that would have made the blue-eyed soul crowd of the 70s plenty proud! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lee FieldsFunky Screw/Bull Is Coming ... 7-inch
Angle 3/Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
Vintage Lee Fields – a killer couple of mid 70s treasures on his own Angle 3 label! "Funky Screw" is really incredible – with an astounding rhythm, funky guitar, keyboards and punchy horns laid down by the super funky Devil's Personal Band. Lee Fields is on fire out front, as fiercely soulful as ever! The flip side "Bull Is Coming" is a stellar showcase for the band, with an especially sharp horn solo – plus some cool, chattery group vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Durand Jones & The IndicationsDurand Jones & The Indications ... CD
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years – new work by a singer who hails from Indiana, but who's able to give the best from Memphis and Muscle Shoals a real run for their money! Durand Jones isn't one of these cats who's trying to fake it with a few retro touches – and instead, he gets right to the heart of the matter, right from the very first note – with a deep vocal approach that's rivaled by a rare few in the contemporary scene – maybe Lee Fields (and maybe that's it!) The vocals are perfect – never forced or cliched, and really right on the money – and the Indications do a great job, too – with these lean backings that never overwhelm, yet really help keep things funky. Hats off to drummer Aaron Frazier and guitarist Blake Rhein, who wrote most of the songs on the record with Jones – and titles include "Make A Change", "Can't Keep My Cool", "Groovy Babe", "Giving Up", "Now I'm Gone", and "Is It Any Wonder".

Sonny Knight & The LakersI'm Still Here ... CD
Secret Stash, 2014. Used ... $5.99
One of the best soul music comebacks we've ever heard – and one of the few contemporary records like this to have a really cohesive feel overall! This isn't just a new group working with an older singer – but a tremendous blending of the skilled soul vocals of Sonny Knight with just the kind of funky combo to make him come across just right – and probably even better than he ever sounded back in the day! The whole thing is perfect – from performance to production – and the record sparkles with an energy that we never heard before from Sonny Knight – with backing by the Fabulous Lakers that's right up there with best older combos from back in the day. This one may well nudge recent work from Lee Fields off the top spot on our list – and it's a real stunner from this overlooked singer! Titles include "Cave Man", "I'm Still Here (parts 1 & 2)", "Hey Girl", "When You're Gone", "Baby Baby Baby", "Get Up & Dance", and a great cover of Rodriguez's "Sugar Man". CD

Federal/Secret Stash, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
One of the last great funk albums from King Records – a set recorded in the early 70s, but done with a crackling sharp sound that's like the best late 60s James Brown albums for the label! Mickey Murray is from Augusta, GA – James Brown's hometown – and his approach is similar to James' at times, but it's also got more of a southern funk groove too – a bit like the great combination you'll hear in Lee Fields' music, which is a perfect fit for the album's raw, rootsy production! The record includes a great funky cut called "The Buzzard", plus other nice ones like "Explosive Population", "People Are Together", "Going Back To Alabama", "Fat Gal", and "I Wanna See My Baby".

Daptone, 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 20.98
A killer compilation of Daptone Gold – a funky and soulful collection that's a perfect snapshot of the sounds coming out of Daptone's House Of Soul recording studios in the aughties! The Daptone sound spins from a tight community of players with the deepest love and respect for the classic, be it funky instrumentals, gritty raw soul, with bits of Afrobeat and more. Daptone Gold includes some standard bearing label classics, rarities and previously unreleased tracks – incredible stuff from Binky Griptite, The Budos Band, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Lee Fields, Menahan Streetband, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens and Antibalas. 23 tracks in all: a funky introduction and more from Binky Griptite, "Could Have Been" by Lee Fields, "Che Che Cole Makosa" by Antibalas feat Mayra Vega, "Nervous Like Me" by the Dap-Kings, "I Need You To Hold My Hand" Cynthia Langston & The Gospel Queens, "Stranded In Your Love" by Sharon Jones & Lee Fields and more.

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Rare gems from the funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – and maybe the most smoking volume in this all-great series so far! The sound is hard and heavy right from the start – very much in the best mode of the funky 45 reissues we've been hearing from Tramp in recent years – right up there with the deepest funk you'd get from labels like Ace/Kent or Jazzman on their best compilations! And although other volumes have all been great, there's a special sort of magic this time around – an edge that really shows the evolution of Tramp's ear for picking a groove – and deep notes that also show their growing knowledge of the most obscure cuts from back in the day. We can guarantee there's plenty here you don't already have in your record collection – and titles include "Funky Screw" by Lee Fields, "Soul Chicken" by Bobby Allen & The Exceptions, "Ease It On In" by Sunrize, "Deepest Sympathy" by Theodis Ealey, "Tend To Your Business (parts 1 & 2)" by Wildfire, "Pat's Rubber Band" by Alley Pat, "Puttin It On Your Mind" by Jimmy Ellis, "Nobody Loves Me Like My Baby" by Jimmy Gilford, "99/44 100 Pure Love" by Al Reed, and "Monkey In A Sack" by Lil Buck & The Top Cats.

✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

"Smile" has this nicely heavy bottom – drums that almost come on with the power of a contemporary beat, which really underscores the deep soul vocals of Durand Jones – a singer with almost a Lee Fields approach to the music! "Tuck N Roll" is funky too – but with the guitar doing as much as the drums – and really setting the scene for the Indications to take off on their own instrumental groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

"Promises" is a great tune almost feels like a psych-steeped Lee Fields tune, while the flip "Strange Love" has more of a west coast feel. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Willie West & The High Society BrothersLost Soul ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A new album from the great Willie West – an artist we love for his rare vintage New Orleans work of the 60s and 70s – still sounding surprisingly wonderful all these many years later! Willie's vocals have this raspy, honest charm that's totally great – and like Lee Fields during his revival years, West gets superb backing from a small combo of younger players who really appreciate the best roots of the music – tight but unpretentious grooves that feel just like a vintage 45, and suit Willie West to a T! The style is less New Orleans than it is a more righteous, sophisticated version of funky soul – one with some nice dark corners that really raise our opinion of Willie's talents – again with the sort of deeper vibe we love in the recent work by Lee Fields. Titles include "Slow & Easy", "Cold In The Storm", "She's So Wise", "The Devil Gives Me Everything", "Getting Down", and "I'm Aware Of What You Want". CD

Love GenerationGeneration Of Love ... LP
Imperial, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Dreamy sunshine pop from one of the best groups of the genre – the sweetly-tinged Love Generation, a harmony outfit with a really outta site sound! The record's got a sound that's very much in the best spirit of the post-Mamas & The Papas generation – as smooth and sweet as pop vocal groups in years past, but inflected with a freer 60s spirit, and a nice hippie undercurrent that makes for a trippier sound than you'd expect! Good proof of this are the album's great original tunes – tracks that tell enough through great titles like "The Bummer", "Consciousness Expansion", "WC Fields", "Leaves Grow Grey", and "Fluffy Rain" – and which follow up with a sound that more than matches their promise!

Magnetic Fields69 Love Songs (6 X 10 inch LP box set) ... LP
Merge, 1999. New Copy 6 x 10" (reissue)... $68.99 99.98
One of the most revered indie albums of the modern era, and certainly one of those biggest – in terms of sheer size as well as acclaim – even though it was only ever a blip on the mainstream radar! Stephin Merritt's sprawling, quite literally titled 69 Love Songs kind of serves as an outsider's history of pop songcraft, riffing on different styles and eras, with a truly distinctive creative voice. A great part of the charm is the sometimes witty, sometimes melancholy, often both, and ALWAYS clever lyricism (without being cute.) Even with the huge number of songs, it's incredibly consistent, holding together better than many of Merritt's single albums over the years if you ask us! One of the cases where the critical consensus really got it right – it's a masterpiece –and this beautiful 6 X 10" vinyl box set is a nearly perfect way to present it! Includes "Absolutely Cuckoo", "I Don't Believe In The Sun", "Reno Dakota", "The Cactus Where Your Heart Should Be", "Parades Go By", "Punk Love", "The Things We Did And Didn't Do", "Roses", "Love Is Like Jazz", "Very Funny", "Grand Canyon", Asleep And Dreaming", "I Shatter", "Kiss Me Like You Mean It", "Underwear", "Busby Berkeley Dreams", "Bitter Tears", "Meaningless", "Queen Of The Savages", "Love Is Like A Bottle Of Gin", "Strange Eyes", "Zebra", "Experimental Music Love", "Long Forgotten Fairytale", "I Think I Need A New Heart" and many more.

VariousLA's Silver Soul – Lee Silver's Symphonic Productions ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Dig harmony soul? Here's a treasure trove – great work from the LA scene of the late 60s and early 70s, remarkable in that the city's not nearly as well known for work in that genre as points on the east coast – often thought of as the real home of harmony soul! The set features 24 tracks all produced by Lee Silver – all from small label releases, and brought together for the first time in such rich quality. Male groups dominate the set, and most tunes are taken at a slightly swinging midtempo pace that sits somewhere between ballad soul and uptempo northern. Titles include "That's All Over Baby" and "Your Good Lovin" by The Jones Brothers, "Do Youself A Favor" and "Bent Out Of Shape" by The Themes, "Got No Reason" and "Coming Right Back" by 21st Century, "Forever Yours" and "Gonna Wait For You" by The Pentagons, "Reaching Higher" and "What Price" by Nathan Williams, "Save Your Love" by Soul Patrol, and "You Walked Away" by The Chesterfields.

✨✧ VariousThat's The Way I Feel Right Now – A Tribute To Thelonious Monk ... LP
A&M, 1984. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
A great little entry into a genre that got way too overdone and way too cluttered by the end of the 80s – but which was surprisingly fresh at the time of this initial release! The set pays tribute to the late Thelonious Monk, but does so by moving way past his modern jazz roots – and allowing for participation by a variety of artists in a number of different fields. Hal Willner masterminded the set, and does a great job of making unlike artists work well next to each other – really expanding on famous numbers by Monk, but never getting too goofy overall. Titles include "Functional" by Randy Weston, "Four In One" by Todd Rundgren & Gary Windo, "Thelonious" by Bruce Fowler, "Criss Cross" by Shockabilly, "In Walked Budd" by Terry Adams & Roswell Rudd, "Evidence" by Steve Lacy & Elvin Jones, "Ba-Lu-Bolivar-Ba-Lues-Are" by Was Not Was, "Ask Me Now" by Steve Lacy & Charlie Rouse, "Monk's Mood" by Sharon Freeman, "Round Midnight" by Joe Jackson, and "Friday The Thirteen" by Bobby McFerrin and Bob Dorough. There's plenty of other great Lacy work on the set too – and even if you're put off by the presence of non-jazzers on the set, the album's worth it alone for the Lacy tracks! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves.)
