✨✧ Ohio PlayersAngel ... CD
Mercury, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the last great album in the Ohio Players run for Mercury in the mid 70s – a set that's every bit as smooth, sexy, and funky as their other major label efforts from the time – and one that continued to refine the grittier funk of their roots! While the Players might be remembered for their over the top jams, the cuts here we love the best are the mellower steppers – tracks that still have plenty of funk in the mix, but hit a gentler groove, too – following the spacey soul legacy of "Sweet Sticky Thing". Titles on the album include "Glad To Know You're Mine", "Angel", "Merry-Go-Round", "Don't Fight My Love", "Body Vibes" and "Ohio". CD

VariousKings Of Hip Hop – Compiled By DJ Premier & Mr Thing ... CD
BBE/Rapster (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Another stellar combination of DJ mix genius and foolproof compilation from BBE Records – massive soul, funk and hip hop tunes selected and spun by DJ Premier and Mr. Thing! DJ Premier assembles the Breaks set – featuring a number of soul, funk and jazz tracks, many of which are well known – but they're elegantly mixed Premier in supreme head-nodding fashion! Tracks include "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington Jr., "Skin Tight" by Ohio Players, "Ain't No Half Steppin'" by Heatwave, "Love Ballad" by LTD, "Sweet Thing" by Rufus feat Chaka Kahn, "We Are The People Who Are Darker Than Blue" by Curtis Mayfield and more! Mr. Thing's turn on the hip hop portion is just as nice – mixing and mashing some of our favorite numbers from the most revolutionary years of the game! Selections include "Sound Bwoy Burreill" by Smif N' Wessun, "I Got Cha Opin" by Black Moon, "The Bizness" by De La Soul and Common, "Skinz" by Pete Rock & CL Smooth feat Grand Puba, "Mic Checka" by Das Efx, "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" by ODB, "Fakin' The Funk" by Main Source, "Set It Off" by Big Daddy Kane and more. 32 tracks on 2CDs!

VariousSoulful Gospel Vocal Groups Vol 1 ... CD
Famous Groove (France), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
A collection of the sort we've been looking for for a long time – a sampling of obscure gospel groups with a secular soul sound! As any fan of classic soul knows, many groups got their start in gospel music – and there were a heck of a lot more soul-potential groups that never left the gospel idiom. This 26 track set digs through a pile of rare wax to go way beyond the bigger acts, to include a bunch of excellent vocal harmony groups from rare small labels. Titles include "Up A Little Higher" by Harps Of The Coast, "I'm Singing Lord" by Morning Echoes, "Come ON" by Sensational Saints Of Ohio, "Race Creed & Color" by Gospel Five, "Jordan River" by Sensational Jubilettes, "Save Me" by Clefs Of Cavalry, "It's A Blessing" by Prodigal Sons, and "Milky White Way" by The Zion Travelers. CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Funk Yourself ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stellar collection of far reaching 70s funk – bridging schools of funk brilliantly – from fusiony grooves, to disco, to rawly raucous, and smoothed out and soulful – a mix of famous material that crossed over with others that are best known to crate diggers! The set's in the German Jazz Club series – and includes great stuff from Deaodato, Pleasure, Rose Royce, Betty Davis, Parliament, Rick James, The Bar-Kays, Ohio Players, Southside Movement and many more. 18 tracks in all: "Funk Yourself" by Deodato, "Let's Dance" by Pleasure, "Supernatural Feeling" by Blackbyrds, "Unfunky UFO" by Parliament, "This Is It" by Betty Davis, "Blow Your Head" by Fred Wesley & The JBs, "Shake Your Rump To The Funk" by Bar-Kays, "Funk Talk" by Southside Movement and more.

✨✧ Bar-KaysToo Hot To Stop ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players at their best, there's still plenty of sharp edges and deeply funky moments on the record – and if anything, the shift has really given The Bar-Kays a way to evolve their sound past some of the heavier modes of the early days, without losing any of the appeal of their groove! Some cuts have some great keyboards – almost producing a spacey funk feel at points – and titles include "Too Hot To Stop (part 1)", "You're So Sexy", "Cozy", "Spellbound", "Whitehouseorgy", and the nice mellow track "Summer Of Our Love".
