Dave Cortez & We The People(Do It) The Funky Dance/There's A New Man ... 7-inch
Sound Pak, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An excellent lost groover from 2 funky east coast talents! Dave Baby Cortez plays some smoking organ on this one, especially on the cut "Do The Funky Dance", which is a rolling soul number with a great midtempo groove. The whole thing almost sounds a bit New Orleans-ish, with that old school funky sound that reminds us of the early days of funky 45s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Everyday PeopleEveryday People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Red Coach/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
A lost funky classic from the Kool & The Gang side of the universe – cut by a group we've only seen on this one and only record – which was recorded for one of the sub-labels of De-Lite Records, home to the main Gang! There's clearly some mentorship taking place here – as the group works with producer Gene Redd, of K&TG fame – and they also serve up their own takes on some of the best early funky tracks of that group – while also using that inspiration to then move into some heavy james of their own – all with razor-sharp instrumentation, but a sound that's still plenty raw as well! This maturation of the funky 45 underground is still in its very early stages here – no disco touches or commercial overproduction – which really makes the group shine on cuts that include "Gold Smoke", "Funky Granny", "Who's Gonna Take The Weight", "Mama Said-Papa Said", and "Funky Gene-Ra-Tion". CD features some great bonus cuts – "The Bump (parts 1 & 2)", "Juice It Up (parts 1 & 2)", and the tracks "Get Down Get Stank" and "I Like What I Like", both recorded by the related Hot Line combo.

Lothar & The Hand PeopleSpace Hymn ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... $36.99
A great little group – with music as wonderful as their name! Lothar & The Hand People sprung out of the post-folk years of the mid 60s – bringing together styles that had an earthier touch, with others that shared more in the proto-psyche of the time, and which also had a bit of a cosmic influence. And while at their core, the group had a sound that was shared by a number of groups at the time – somewhere in between Byrds-esque down-homeyness and sunshine psyche – they also had a knack for pulling in unusual instrumentation, creating some great "curve ball" moments that really kept their albums interesting.

Mostly Other People Do The KillingBlue ... CD
Hot Cup, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
One of the greatest records we've heard so far from this ultra-hip ensemble – the group's own version of the classic Miles Davis album Kind Of Blue – played in track by track sequence, but with a lot of the group's own flavors on the solos, even though they follow the originals very strongly too! The tracks are all long and wonderful – and done in a style that's quite faithful to the original, but as a way of showing these guys' continuing commitment to working jazz roots into their freely expressive music – a path that's taken them through a run of music from Ornette Coleman to trad jazz, before landing them here at Miles Davis! Peter Evans handles trumpet – quite a heady role, but done well – and Jon Irabagon blows both the alto and tenor sax parts, alongside Ron Stabinsky on piano, Moppa Elliott on bass, and Kevin Shea on drums. Titles include – of course – "So What", "Freddie Freeloader", "All Blues", "Blue In Green", and "Flamenco Sketches". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Fantastic work from a group who never fail to blow our minds – and who also seem to try out something different with each new record, yet never falter at all in their progress forward! Mostly Other People Do The Killing may have one of the longest names in jazz, but they've also got a brash approach that really lives up to the cockiness of their name – a confident step in whatever direction they want, which always leads them down the best path. This time around, they're mixing both modern and trad jazz expressions with literary inspiration from writers who include Thomas Pynchon, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace – each of whom are listed as reference points for certain songs – which are based around snippets of their text, then transformed into a musical mode. The instrumentation is a very offbeat take on trad – with Jon Irabgon on tenor and sopranino sax, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and slide trumpet, Dave Taylor on bass trombone, Brandon Seabrook on banjo and electronics, Kevin Shea on drums, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and leader Moppa Elliott on bass. Titles include "Kilgore", "Hi Nella", "Honey Hole", "Bloomsberg", "Glen Riddle", "Mason & Dixon", and "Five". CD

Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A genius new step for Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a group who manages to give us something completely different every time around – yet never come across with any sense of gimmick at all! Instead, they just leap into fresh modes with all their best creative energy, and come up with something that has us falling in love with them all over again – as they do here, working only as a trio this time around – but awash in as much color as you'd guess from the album's cover! The group features the mighty Moppa Elliott on bass – as fantastic as always – with Ron Stabinsky on piano and Kevin Shea on drums – a familiar structure for a lineup, but one that comes across with a very inventive quality – that "something different" vibe that's marked MOPDTK from the start – as much in love with jazz tradition as it is willing to change it. Pianist Stabinsky is incredibly fluid – spinning out notes that almost feel like they're coming faster than he can think – sparks of color that explode on the keys of the piano, on titles that include "Yellow House", "Orangeville", "Green Briar", "Golden Hill", "Whitehall", and "Plum Run".

Hot Cup, 2007. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A killer second album from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – drawing from an even deeper well of both jazz traditions and ragged, anything goes charm than on their excellent debut – an enthralling blend of credible chops with unpredictable playfulness! Never shy about soloing, each player in the group really put down some masterful turns on Shamokin – from fluid, well trained beauty to some unhinged, exciting bursts of noise. These do it all, and they do it very well. Titles include "Handsome Eddy", "The Hop Bottom Hop", "Shamokin", "Dunkelbergers", "Lover", "Andover", Baden" and more – plus a closing with a riveting take on "Night In Tunisia". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingThis Is Our Moosic ... CD
Hot Cup, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A really exciting avant jazz set from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a killer quartet who manage to roll through a wide variety of styles that show a true depth of understanding of some of the greatest jazz of the past half century – and have a heck of great time playing it! Ostensibly a tribute to Ornette Coleman, MOPDTK do a lot more than pay homage to a master on this album. They manage to roll in and out of elements of hard and post bop, nod reverently to the international 60s avant garde scenes, and so much more – all with infectious enthusiasm. It would be mess in lesser hands, but these guys pull it off! Players include Peter Evans on trumpet, Kevin Shea on drums, Jon Irabagon on sax and Moppa Elliot on double bass. Titles include "Drainlick", "Two Boot Jacks", "Fagundus", "The Bats In Belfry", "East Orwell", "My Delightful Muse", "Allentown" and more. CD

People's ChoiceAny Way You Wanna – The People's Choice Anthology 1971 to 1981 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

People's ChoiceI Likes To Do It/Big Ladies Man ... 7-inch
Phil-LA Of Soul, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of THE all time classic funky 45s – a killer cut, with a long sample history, by a group who weren't making full albums at this point in their career! "I Likes To Do It" has this amazing hard heavy electric piano keyboard introduction – riffing all over funky beats with a tight De La approach to funk – really hitting hard on the groove, as these scatting mad vocals come into the mix! "Big Ladies Man" has a very similar approach – again with the messed up electric piano – but features a bit more of a vocal part! 7-inch, Vinyl record

People's Choir Of Operation PushPeople's Choir Of Operation Push ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1973. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A gospel album, to be sure, but also one with a pretty darn hip sound – as it's directed by Reverand Marvin Yancy (of The Independents, a group that featured Jesse Jackson's brother Chuck), and arrangements by Gene Barge, who did a lot of hip work for Chess/Cadet. Most tracks have a hip soul style that's not that different from other gospelly soul on Stax – like work by The Staple Singers or Rance Allen – and the album features a cover of "Love Train", plus the tracks "Pass Me Not", "I'm A Child Of The King", "The Push Is On", and "One More Day".

People's WorkshopHouston Talent Expo 1982 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 26.99
The cover might look a bit understated, but the album's got plenty of depth and power – a rare set from the Texas underground of the early 80s – cut by a group who've clearly drunk deep from the same musical well that inspired Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, and other cosmic soul talents of the 70s! As with Stevie and Roy, there's plenty of jazzy currents in the music of The People's Workshop – warm keyboards, sweet sax and flute, and waves of color that really come through the grooves and illuminate the deeper spirit of the vocals. There's a sense of collaboration here that's really special – almost a James Mason vibe at times – all with a sense of sophistication that's quite different than the rootsier sounds you might normally expect from Texas soul groups. Titles include "Save Your Money", "A Song For The Children", "Love Love", "Let's Get High", "Chocolate Coated People Song", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

PRO (People Rock Outfit)Blacky Joe (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
EMI/Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
The People Rock Outfit really knock it out of the park with this dark-edged classic from the 70s – one of the heaviest albums we've heard from the Nigerian scene at the time, and a record that's almost got more of a South African spirit overall! These guys effortlessly mix together funk and psych – the former in these stark, forward-moving rhythnm that are mighty nice – the latter in these long-spun guitar lines that have a nice fuzzy vibe, as the solos cascade effortlessly from the hands of the guitarist! Vocals are all in English – sometimes with a slow-stepping approach that's very moody, more often in a lively spirit to match the rhythms – and the record also features a bit of guest work on moog and Hammond, which really adds a lot to the sound. Titles include "Blacky Joe", "Mary Jane", "Faded Jeans", "Freedom", "Movement", "Tell Me", "Midnight Woman", and "Looking Round". LP, Vinyl record album
