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.

Frank Hooker & Positive PeopleI Wanna Know Your Name/This Feelin ... 12-inch
Panorama, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Frank Hooker and his group take on Philly International with "I Wanna Know Your Name" – all in a homegrown style that's a bit less dramatically soulful than The Blue Notes, but which still has some nice harmony moments on the chorus. "This Feelin" is back to the group's more traditionally clubby styles – with snapping beats and a fair bit of keyboards that really help the tune cook! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Mostly Other People Do The KillingShamokin ... CD
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

PeopleCeremony – Buddha Meet Rock ... CD
Teichiku (Japan), 1971. Used ... $14.99
Quite a weird little record – part psychedelia, but with some really rootsy elements – and also some odd use of recorded music as well! The sound here is really mindblowing – experimental and trippy, but never too free or over the top – and the core instrumentation includes lots of fuzzy guitar, organ, and rough percussion – plus additional vocals in parts, and even a bit of sitar as well! The production abstracts some of the sounds nicely, but never too much – and at times a more traditional Japanese style of music lurks in the background, possibly as a brief nod to the Buddha in the title. Most unusually, though, is that the first track on the record features part of a David Axelrod album playing in the background! There's clearly an Axelrod influence going on – both in the structure and sound of the record – although the group also take things very much in their own direction too. Titles include "Shomyo (part 1)", "Flower Strewing", "Prologue", and "Prayer (parts 1 & 2)". CD

✨✧ People's ChoiceI Likes To Do It – Funkadelphia Vol 1 ... CD
Jamie, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Funky Philly! People's Choice were a group who later went onto smooth soul fame at Philly International – but during their early years, they were a great little funky group who recorded some tasty singles for the Phil-LA of Soul label. Their funky 45s are some of the most quickly sold from our bins – and they've never had a full LP of material from this period, which makes the CD even more valuable! The general groove is sort of a stop-start chugging funky one – with strong male vocals in the lead, and crashing bass, piano, and guitar riffs in the background. The CD takes 8 tracks from rare singles – including "I Likes To Do It", "Big Ladies Man", "Wootie-T-Woo", "Let Me Do My Thing", and "Oh How I Love It" – and adds in 6 tracks never issued before – including "Grunt", "When You're All Alone", "Nothing But Soul Food", "La Papala", and "Jo".

People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the crowning achievements of People's Choice – a very hip group on the Philly scene, but one who spent most of their early years just releasing excellent (but under-circulated) 7" singles! By the time they arrived at the Philadelphia International label, the group was razor-sharp, and right at the top of their game – schooled in funk and soul, and almost more self-contained than some of the other artists who worked with Gamble & Huff! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound, but has a leaner sound than some of the disco productions of the time – more funky soul, turned towards a 70s club mode – with excellent vocals from Valerie Brown, who shares lead spotlight with longtime group member Frankie Brunson. Titles include the nice mellow stepper "Soft & Tender", plus "Rough Ride", "Stay With Me", "A Greater Truth", "Your Love Stays On My Mind", and "Turn Me Loose". CD features bonus tracks – "Turn Me Loose (12" disco version)", "Rough Ride (single)", and "Turn Me Loose (single)". CD

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

Mike Reed's People Places & ThingsProliferation ... CD
482 Music, 2008. Used ... $6.99
A record with a concept that's really after our own heart – dedicated to the lesser-known forces in the Chicago jazz scene of the late 50s – put together as a tribute of sorts to the MJT+3, tenorist Nicky Hill, altoist John Jenkins, pianist King Fleming, and The Sutherland Hotel! Mike Reed's musical vision is quite clear here – as the group swings like some of the best modern Chicago combos from that wonderful period, but also shows off some sharper edges too – kind of playing with one foot in that first fresh wave of Chicago jazz in the 50s, but also showing some of the bolder voices that have grown up in the scene in recent years. Greg Ward's reed work is wonderful – on both alto and clarinet – and the group also features Tim Haldeman on tenor, and Jason Roebke on bass – and all players handle a bit of percussion and piano too. Titles include tracks by Wilbur Campbell, Sun Ra, John Neely, Tommy Madman Jones, and other Chicago figures – plus a few of Reed's own – cuts that include "Is It", "Wilbur's Tune", "People", "Status Quo", "Planet Earth", "Fa", "Pondering", "Saturn", and "Things".

Horace Tapscott w/ Pan Afrikan People's ArkestraLive At IUCC (2CD set) ... CD
Nimbus, 1979. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99 26.99
An excellent double-length set from Horace Tapscott's Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra – an extremely righteous ensemble that was one of the hippest things going on the LA jazz scene of the 70s! The vibe is free and spiritual, but it also has a wonderful groove pulsating underneath many of the tracks – that heir to the Impulse Records style that Tapscott and other Nimbus Records artists carried on well into the early 80s. The group here features some of Tapscott's Nimbus labelmates – including Sabir Matteen and Billy Harris on tenor saxes, Linda Hill on piano, Adele Sebastian on flute, Roberto Miranda on bass, and Jesse Sharps on soprano sax – and in a way, the album's almost a live summation of all the mighty talents brewing on the Nimbus label at the time! Tracks are all quite long, and titles include a great version of Sebastian's "Desert Fairy Princess", plus "Macrame", "Future Sally's Time", "Noissessprahs", "Village Dance", "LTT", and "Lift Every Voice".
