Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Percussion EnsembleSoul Of A People ... LP
Trolley Car, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer set of spare percussion from this little-known group – a set that's recorded with a very raw, rootsy style – and no other adornment at all! The instrumentation on the set is very spare – nearly all percussion, and performed on claves, bata drums, and congas – plus additional chants from the group, which really intensifies the energy of the whole thing! The set was put together by Joe Cain in a really echoey way – one that recalls the best of the 60s Afro drum experimental sessions – but even without some of the jazz currents on some of those albums, just a stronger focus on West African and Latin elements. Titles include "Drum Festival", "Spirit Song", "Rhythm Of The Forest", "Jungle Drums", and "Drums Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Donald BrownPeople Music ... CD
Muse, 1991. Used ... $4.99
The cover's black and white, but the album's filled with wonderful colors in sound – a bold array of work from pianist Donald Brown – working here with a hip lineup that includes Vincent Herring on alto and soprano sax, Tom Harrell on trumpet, and Steve Nelson on vibes! Nelson's sharp, chromatic tones really bring a lot to the record – and they're nicely balanced by Brown's work on the keys – sometimes soft and soulful, other times bold and modern – pulling all players along in his sweep. Titles include "Booker T", "Reruns From The 60s", "Prism", "Gaslight", and "The Biscuit Man" – and the album also includes the warmly grooving vocal tune "I Love It When You Dance That Way", sung by Lenora Helm.

James BrownPeople ... LP
Polydor, 1980. Sealed ... $19.99
Late 70s James, and a little bit more up-tempo and clubby funky, but still some decent stuff from The Godfather. Includes "Don't Stop the Funk", "Let the Funk Flow", "Stone Cold Drag", and "Are We Really Dancing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a cut corner.)

Bus People Express (Poets Of Rhythm)Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)/South Carolina ... 7-inch
Hotpie & Candy/Daptone, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99 6.99
A rarity from the early 90s funky underground by Bus People Express – who were alternately working as Soul Saints during this period – and they would soon trailblaze the contemporary funk scene as Poets Of Rhythm! "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" starts out with stripped-down drums and some gritty call and response group vocals, before the guitar and bass come storming in. Reminiscent of James Brown at his rawest and grittiest, ala Motherlode! "South Carolina" has a slower cooking style with some southern funky soul swagger, as you might guess from the title. A prescient blast of modern funk to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

Not really any hits on this one, but Nile Rogers and the group still keep grooving along – wangling that pop disco groove with amazing sharpness! Titles include "Chip Off the Old Block", "Open Up", "26", "I Loved You More", "Real People", and "Rebels Are We". LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyBallads For Night People ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons – first brought to record so beautifully by June on the Something Cool album, and wonderfully revisited in this fantastic set! Arrangements are by husband Bob Cooper, and although they're a bit less arch-modern than some of Christy's work with Pete Rugolo, they still really get at the boozy genius of June's vocals at their best. Titles include "I Had A Little Sorrow", "Night People", "Make Love To Me", "Shadow Woman", "My Ship", and "Kissing Bug". LP, Vinyl record album

Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

Fatback BandPeople Music ... LP
Perception, 1973. Very Good ... $69.99
One of the greatest funk albums ever! This is the great LP of hard funky cuts that perfectly sums up the Fatback style that you've heard so much about – but which you can't find on much of their late 70s albums! The whole album is filled to the brim with loads of great hard funk cuts, with cool crowd noises and a non-stop groove all the way through. Monster cuts, including "Nija Walk", "Fatbackin", "Soul March", "Soul Man", "Kiba", "Clap Your Hands", and lots more. LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: One label is pressed into the vinyl – covering 3 of the 4 tracks on side 2. You might be able to remove it, but we didn't try. Side 1 and the rest of the package is great – really almost NM-.)

Friends Of DistinctionFriends & People ... LP
RCA, 1971. Sealed ... $6.99
One of the stranger albums by the Friends of Distinction – with some super-baroque arrangements by Jerry Peters that seem to be trying to push the group past the bouncy formula of their earlier hits. The style should work, especially because Peters is always such a rich talent for more complicated soul work – but the female lead vocals in the group kind of get all flowery in the worst moments, wrecking the record a bit. Still, there are a few nice numbers that have a tight early 70s pop soul groove – and these let the group still show their strength at putting over a regular soul track. Titles include "Dying To Live", "Down I Go", "Let Me Be", "I Need You", "Jenny Wants To Know", and the extended track "It's Time To See Each Other". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee HazlewoodNSVIPs – Not So Very Important People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/1972, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 24.98
A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well! Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as the album Trouble Is A Lonesome Town – but Hazlewood's a lot more tongue-in-cheek with his presentation, and directs the lyrics towards much more biting commentary – not entirely politically progressive, but definitely a larger sense of society beyond the individual. The cast of characters spin out wonderfully – the NSVIPS promised in the title – but they also tie together to present this portrait of an America just waking up in the mid 60s – able to see itself more clearly, yet without any of the overpowering emotions in years to come. That balance is Hazlewood's really special contribution to music at this point – and is given great shape here with help in the studio from Reprise Records whiz kid Jimmy Bowen. Titles include "Have You Made Any New Bombs Today", "I Ain't Gonna Be", "I Might Break Even", "Go Die Big City", "I Had A Friend", and "Everybody Calls Me Something". LP, Vinyl record album
