El Michels Affair with Lee Fields4th Chamber/Snakes ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
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 Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A really fantastic album from the legendary Lee Fields – a set that blows us away every bit as much as his stellar My World album! Like that set, this one's got kind of a moody early 70s vibe – almost a New Jersey soul approach at times, but tinged with more southern modes – mixed with bits of Lee's more familiar funk at others – but often with this moody, almost mellow vibe that's such a fresh take on the territory that Fields has been exploring for years! Lee's lost none of the deep soul elements in his vocals, but there's a shift in arranging styles that's really great – and superbly delivered by the Expressions – a subtle darkness that shows why Fields is really one of the true greats out there in the contemporary funk underground – a true soul singer who's never content to just rest on the laurels of previous success. Titles include "Let Him In", "Lover Man", "Make This World", "How I Like It", "Special Night", "I'm Coming Home", and "Where Is The Love". CD

✨✧ Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A two-part stunner from Lee Fields & The Expressions – a cut that's every bit as great as their work together on the sublime My World album – delivered in a similiar slow funk mode! The groove is like classic New Jersey soul from the early 70s – rough-edged, but sweet at the same time – and Lee's vocals are a perfect topper to the massive sound of The Expressions as the tune flowers open beautifully on the second part! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMake The World (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lee Fields in storming fuzzy funk mode – a standout track from one of the greatest voices in classic school soul, backed by one finest backing bands in The Expressions! "Make The World" bursts out of the gate with heavy drums, punchy horns, and borderline sinister guitar sound, but the Lee's voice and the lyrics are anything but sinister – it's a hopeful number, determined to make the world better – Lee leading the call in impeccable form. The flipside instrumental version is an incredible showcase for the Expressions, who really nail it – even bringing in some funky flute at the end. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Angle 3/Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 17.98
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.

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsNaturally ... CD
Daptone, 2005. New Copy ... $12.99
The long-anticipated second album from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a stunner – undoubtedly stronger than the group's fantastic debut – and a record that not only transcends the late model funk revival genre, but stands on footing as solid as the best hard funky soul of the late 60s and early 70s! If you're expecting a rehash of the heavy funk jams that burned on the Dap Dippin' album you won't be disappointed, but get ready for a deep, natural (hence the title) soulfulness that not only caught us off guard, but really forms the big, hard-beating heart of the album. The frothing, frenetic funk is as tight as ever, and in spots just as furious, but the attention to songcraft this time out is just as searing and indelible. The eight piece Dap Kings continue to be the best band in the land – with El Michels on baritone sax, Neal Sugarman on tenor, Homer Steinweiss on drums, not-so-secret weapon Bosco Mann on bass, vibes and piano. Guest appearances include fellow Daptone powerhouse vocalist Lee Fields on the the duet "Stranded In Your Love", and strings courtesy of the Bushwick Philharmonic, but make no mistake, this is the band's album. Amazing stuff from in indispensable group – an album that'll keep spinning in our circles for as many years as the great albums by the gritty soul forefathers do! Tracks include "How Do I Let A Good Man Down?", "Natural Born Lover", "My Man Is A Mean Man", a soulful reading of Woodie Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land", "Your Thing Is A Drag", "Fish In A Dish" and "All Over Again".

Sonny Knight & The LakersSooner Or Later ... CD
Secret Stash, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Fantastic funk from Sonny Knight & The Lakers – one of the few cases where an older soul singer can really find a fresh new vibe with a younger group! Knight may well be on his way to hitting the same sort of heights that Lee Fields has reached in recent years – and he definitely works in a Daptone-like groove here with the younger instrumentalists – a sharp combo who give Sonny a perfect blend of deep funk and deeper soul – with more than enough Memphis currents to make things sound a lot more classic than you might expect. Production is right on the money – handled by the same Secret Stash folks who've given us reissues of so much old school soul music – and titles include "Sooner Or Later", "It's Over", "The Cry", "It Had To Change", "Oh Mary", "I Could Never Get Tired", and "Help Me".

Various13 x 2 Soul – A Double Shot Of Thirteen Great Soul Artists ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
The title definitely gets it right – as the set brings together two tracks each by thirteen different artists – making for a collection that features 26 rare soul cuts in all! The groove's a bit wide-ranging – there's some 60s stormers, some funky bits, and a fair bit of deep soul tracks that are the real standouts – some unusual 70s tracks that are presented without much fuss or fanfare, but which we might not have discovered otherwise! The collection's done by the Essential Group, who have their hands on hundreds of thousands of vintage tracks, due to their work on the digital front – and what they sometimes lack in presentation, they often make up for in their unusual choices of music. Titles include "Don't Push My Love" by Chyvonne Scott, "Everybody Gonna Give Their Thing Away" and "East Coast Rapper" by Lee Fields, "He Ain't Doin Bad" by Jean Wells, "The Only Way" by Love, "People In A Hurry" by The Whispers, "All On Account Of You" by Bird Rollins, "Give Me All Your Sweet Lovin" by Chuck Armstrong, "This Time Tomorrow" by Sisters Love, "Dark Side Of The Ghetto" by The Whispers, "The Peanut Man" by Walter Foster, and "Happiness" by Rudy Love & The Company Soul.

VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 2 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection ... LP
Truth & Soul, Early 70s/Early 2000s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Heavy funk from two different decades – some real lost treasures from the 70s, stacked up here with some equally great work from recent years! The package is a massive second helping from the Truth & Soul family of labels – one that not only shows their continuing dedication to the best in deep funk, but also a recent turn towards older soul from the 70s – served up on a host of recent reissues that are really great! Most work here was only issued on 45s by the label – making the overstuffed collection a bargain at this price, especially given that some of the 45s aren't that easy to find of late. 2LP set is very different than the CD – with some songs that aren't on that format, and vice versa. It features 27 tracks that include the previously unreleased cuts "Odyssey Revised" by The Fabulous Three, "Untitled" by Funky Music Machine, "Sweet As Can Be" by The Evil Ds, and "Bumpy's Lament" by El Michels Affair – plus "Love Comes & Goes" and "My World" by Lee Fields, "Behind Blue Curtains" and "CREAM" by El Michels Affair, "An Earthquake's Coming" and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet, "Just A Little While Longer" and "Gotta Clean Up The World (part 1)" by Funky Music Machine, "Nora Se Va" and "La Valla" by Bronx River Parkway, "I'm So Glad You're Mine" by Timothy McNealty, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Call It Static" by Quincy Bright, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "So Glad" by The Evil Ds, and "Agua Con Sol" by Bronx River Parkway.

✨✧ Durand Jones & The IndicationsDurand Jones & The Indications ... CD
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

"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

Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare cuts from a variety of different sources – maybe presented without the deeper notes of compilations on labels like Ace or Numero, but with a musical quality that's totally great all the way through! We recognize some of these cuts from the Chicago and west coast scenes of the late 60s – but there's also more obscure gems from the 70s south, and other points too – all brought together as a non-nonsense package that reminds us of the kind of less-official funky compilations we used to have to turn to back in the 90s. Titles include "Turn Her Loose" by Chuck Bernard, "I'm Running A Losing Race" by Tyrone Davis, "Real Good Feeling" by Bobby Byrd, "Everybody Gonna Give Their Thing Away" by Lee Fields, "I Know You Love Me" by The Sisters Love, "Funky Funky Horse (part 1)" by Lester Young & The California Playboys, "If This Ain't Really Love" by Bobby & Cindy, "Baby You're Right" by Monk Higgins, "We'll Meet Again" by Lee Sain, "Jim Jam" by The Ultimate Truth, "Eight Miles High" by Eight Miles High, "Theme For Sisters Greene" by The Greene Sisters, "I'm Gonna Try To Be Real True To You"b y Bird Rollins, "You're The Real Thing" by Pride, "Break Down" by We The People, and "War" by franky & The Spindles.

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ James BrownI Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me ... LP
King, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great lost album from James Brown – and totally funky! The record's got a super-hip cover that shows James standing in a blue room with three fine foxy ladies, and the words "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me" are emblazoned across the top – and the whole thing's as super funky as it looks! The record features many obscure King singles from the mid and late 60s, great little tunes that we always enjoy on funky 45s, and which are sewn together into one of the rawer James Brown LPs from the decade. James and the band are playing Vox instruments – as you can tell by the shameless ad on the back cover – and the record has a garagey funk sound that reminds us of the best Desco work by artists like Lee Fields & Joseph Henry. A prize in any funk collection – and with the cuts "The Soul Of JB", "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Get It Together (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul #1", "Why Did You Take Your Love From Me", and "Baby Baby Baby Baby". Also features the funky hit "There Was A Time" – always a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Federal/Secret Stash, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

VariousLA's Silver Soul – Lee Silver's Symphonic Productions ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 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.
