Slim Moore & The Mar-KaysIntroducing Slim Moore & The Mar-Kays ... CD
Marlow/Cosmic Groove (France), 2011. Used ... $6.99
One of the best new funk albums we've heard in years – and one that really does an amazing job of putting equal emphasis on intrumentation and deep soul vocals! Slim Moore comes across like some lost singer from the early 70s funky 45 generation – gritty and upfront, with a quality that's instantly infectious – almost like Syl Johnson during his Twinight years! Then the Mar-Kays play with this depth that's equally wonderful – mixing funky licks with more complicated soul touches – some of the vibes we've been getting from the Daptone scene in recent years – slower grooves mixed with faster ones, touches of hip instrumentation, like vibes – all wrapped up in a production style that really recalls the best days of indie soul. The whole thing's wonderful – a record we'd put right up there with Lee Fields' My World, or the Charles Bradley full-length – and a set we'll be digging for years! Titles include "How Long", "Cityscape", "Slim's Theme", "Reachin Higher", "Mar-Kays Theme", "Cool Breeze", and Help Me Now". CD

VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 1 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection ... CD
Truth & Soul, 1970s/2000s. Used ... $4.99
A treasure trove of great funky bits from the last few years – 19 tracks from the Soul Fire/Truth & Soul Catalog – none of which have ever been on CD before! The work here is all great – very much in the best mode of the deep funk underground, but also showing the unusual sounds and styles the T&S crew have come up with on recent records – modes that are far more than retro funk, and which have really set them apart from the Desco and Daptone scene before them! Added to the newer cuts are also some great rare numbers too – dark little gems reissued by Truth & Soul that sit nicely alongside the current tracks. Given that any one of the singles would cost you about half the price of the CD, you're getting a tremendous funky bargain here – nearly an hour of great music that includes "Honey Dove" and "Do You Love Me" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "Easy Easy Easy" and "KC Stomp" by Timothy McNealy, "CREAM" and "Glaciers Of Ice" by El Michels Affair, "Gotta Clean Up The World (parts 1 & 2)" by Funky Music Machine, "So Glad" by The Evil D's, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Creation" by El Michels Affair, "Lima Blues" and "Mas Y Mas" by Bronx River Parkway, and "Drums Of Asiko" by Asiko.

✨✧ VariousGrazing In The Trash Vol 1 – Soul Fire Funk 45 Collection ... CD
Soul Fire, 2001. Used ... $16.99
Some of the best funk ever recorded in modern years! This tasty CD-only set brings together 7 funky 45s (a & b sides!) recorded for the Soul Fire label – a groundbreaking imprint that sprung out of the ashes of the Desco Records empire, with a strong dedication to producing new records with a classic funk sound. All of these titles were initially pressed up on limited edition funky 45s, and most of them are now out of print, never to be put on vinyl again. The CD is the only chance you'll now get to hear most of the material – and it's all top-shelf, A-list, classic funk all the way through! Titles include "Compin & Smokin" and "Damper Down Popcorn" by Calypso King & The Soul Investigators, "Haaa-Sheesh" and "Just Some More Haaa-Sheesh" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Soul Safari" and "Two Beat Beast" by Speedometer, "I'm The Man" and "Your Love" by Lee Fields, "Majestic Soul" and "Welfare Line" by Third Point, "There It Is" and "Hook & Sling" by The Soul Command, and even tunes from the "Soul Fire Educational" single, a mass of funky drumbreaks! CD

✨✧ VariousUp From The Vaults Vol 1 ... CD
Soul Fire, 2002. Used ... $7.99
A treasure trove of Soul Fire's funky 45s, both the A-sides and the flips, collected on a single CD! Soul Fire is probably the greatest funk revival label out there, with a history of limited edition 7-inch singles showcasing both under appreciated funky heroes like Lee Fields, the Detroit Sex Machines, and the Herb Johnson Settlement, and newer groups devoted to the classic feel, like Mauri Bailey, WQLJ, the Latin leaning Bronx River Parkway, and the Afro Funky group Massak. There is enough hot, pounding funk pressed into the grooves of those singles to thaw out a frozen Lake Michigan, but most notoriously fall out of print in a matter of months, leaving us dying for a reprise. That's where this collection comes in – 9 funk powerhouses, 18 funky jams – the vinyl may be long gone, but the funk will go on, thanks to the magic of digital audio!!! Includes "Quines Haverlo" and "Chum's Pimpage" by Bronx River Parkway, "Answer Me Softly" by Fabulous Three, "Instrumental #1" and "Nothing Doing But Waiting On Leon" by WQLJ, "Chokin'" and "Rampage" by Whitefield Brothers", "Get It" by Herb Johnson Settlement, "BLA" by Massak, "Stretch" by Detroit Sex Machines, and "Easy Access" by El Michels Affair. A mammoth collection of funk crammed onto one CD, and an essential long player even if you already have the singles! CD

Sonny Knight & The LakersI'm Still Here ... CD
Secret Stash, 2014. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Sugarman ThreePure Cane Sugar ... CD
Daptone, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The greatest album to date from Sugarman 3 – one of the funkiest combos of the past 50 years! The group's organ/sax sound has never sounded so great – and it's pumped up even further here from some added guest instrumentation, including drums from Bernard Purdie, plus vocals on a number of cuts from deep funk legends Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, and Naomi Davis. The whole thing's as funky as funky can be – the kind of a record that would be selling for $300 if it came out in the 70s, and which is even nicer to have at a low everyday price! Titles include "Shot Down", "Modern Jive", "Funky So & So", "Take It As It Come", "Pure Cane", "Promised Land", "Country Girl", "La Culebra", "Down To It", "Honey Wagon", and "Bosco's Blues". CD

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... 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.
