✨✧ Ohio PlayersFunk On Fire – The Mercury Anthology ... CD
Mercury, Mid 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whopping 2CD compilation of some of the best funky moments from the Ohio Players post-Westbound work for Mercury! This is the stuff that brought funk into the top 10 in the US – and the Players manage to mix together a tight well-produced sound with the same raw funk sensibility that got them started way back in the 60s. There's a huge amount of great tracks on here – including "Shady Lady", "Body Vibes", "Good Luck Charm", "Fire", "Jive Turkey", "Heaven Must Be Like This", "Sweet Sticky Thing", "Fopp", "Skin Tight", "Love Rollercoaster", "Who'd She Coo?", "Funk-O-Nots", "Honey", "O-H-I-O" and lots lots more! 28 tracks in all, and digitally remastered for great sound, in fact, the only thing missing here, is a naked bald lady on the cover (oops, guess that's the westbound years). CD
(Out of print. BMG Direct pressing.)

✨✧ Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... CD
Mercury, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo?", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"! CD

✨✧ JunieJunie – The Westbound Years ... CD
Westbound (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Walter "Junie" Morrison had the great honor of being a member of both of Westbound's biggest collectives (although not necessarily at the same time) – the hard funky Ohio Players, and the cosmic brotherhood of Funkadelic/Parliament. During the mid-70s, though, Junie embarked upon a solo career, and cut a few wild LPs for the label which mixed funk, soul, and even some strange rock-oriented leanings. The resulting recordings were some of the more messed-up that Westbound ever issued, with moments that are delightfully funky, and others that are downright silly. This sweet 20 track compilation brings together most of the best moments of Junie's Westbound Years, and includes cuts like "Johnny Carson Samba", "Walt's Third Trip", "Tight Rope", "Cookies Will Get You", "Super J", "Super Groupie", and the great "Granny's Funky Rolls Royce", featuring the Funky Granny from "Funky Worm"!
