Afro Percussion EnsembleSoul Of A People ... LP
Trolley Car, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
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

✨✧ Sil AustinSil Austin Plays Pretty For The People ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
No honking here, as Sil Austin takes his deeply soulful tenor sax, and turns it to a set of creamy late-nite tracks – all done over some very "pretty" backings, ala the Verve strings work of Ben Webster or Lester Young. Most cuts have voices in with the orchestrations – and titles include "I'll Walk Alone", "Call me", "Ruby", "My Mother's Eyes", "Stardust", "Prisoner Of Love", and "Sweet Slumber". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing, with deep groove.)

Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Jeff Buckley's fragile, emotionally resonant cover of Sly & The Family Stone's classic "Everyday People" – recorded in the early 90s, and somehow, stunningly unreleased until 2015 – with the Sly original on the flipside! 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

Atlantic, 1980. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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

Andrew CyrilleSpecial People ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1981. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A hip session led by drummer Andrew Cyrille – but one that features some especially nice work on horns, thanks to David S Ware on tenor and Ted Daniels on trumpet! The album's got a slow-building sound that shows Cyrille's newly sensitive approach to the drums at the time – and at times, the style almost has some harmelodic elements, with the horns helping out on rhythms, tied together with a really full, forceful feel. Nick Geronimo completes the quartet on bass – a player we don't know at all, but one with a bold sound that's really great – and titles include "Girl Named Rainbow", "High Priest", "Fortified Nucleolus", and "Special People".

DAP x The NomadsEpic/To My People ... 7-inch
Stay The Course, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
Strong independent hip hop from heretofore unknown Brooklyn emcee DAP – with live instrumentation by The Nomads – the first single on the upstart Stay The Course label, and here's hoping they do just that! This is solid stuff – rooted in raw 90s east coast boom bap, inspiration-wise – but it's not so much a throwback, as it is a fresh take on a timelessly inventive style. The Nomads provide a spare jazz funk backdrop of drums, bass, keys and sax that suits it perfectly. "Epic" and "To My People" are both top notch tracks. A solid start! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes in a great screenprint sleeve, too!)

DarondoLet My People Go ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
Mad homegrown soul from the enigmatic Darondo – a brief Bay Area star back in the 70s, and also host of TV comedy and children's shows! Darondo only ever saw release of 3 singles, but they're all pretty darn great – a weird mix of funk, soul, and sly slinky grooves – very unique in conception, and with a heady, tripped-out vision that makes us wish he'd recorded more. Luv N Haight have really done Darondo justice with this set – bringing together all 6 tracks from the singles, plus 3 more previously unissued numbers – all in a great package that features words from the man himself, plus some great images from his older TV shows. A near-lost soul figure, but one with enough charisma to fill the careers of other more famous acts! Titles include "How I Got Over", "Let My People Go", "Legs (part 1)", "True", "Didn't I", "I Want Your Love So Bad", "My Momma & My Poppa", "Sure Know How To Love Me", and "Listen To My Song". CD

Miles DavisStar People ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Miles Davis in the early 80s – but still sounding pretty darn great, and somehow managing to take some of his best elements from the 70s and refine them into a slightly more focused groove! The tracks here are shorter than before – no side-long jams at all – but they definitely bristle with slight undercurrents of noise, and have some unbridled rhythms that make for a good sense of energy. Added to these are a few more (then) contemporary touches – a very slight update of Miles' older funk, but never in a slick or commercial way – and still cerebral enough to show the world that Davis wasn't selling out late in the day. Miles plays a bit of keyboards in addition to trumpet – and other players include Bill Evans on saxophones, John Scofield on guitar, Marcus Miller on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "Come Get It", "It Gets Better", "Speak", "Star People", "U N I", and "Star On Cicely". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic FourAlvin Stone/Night People ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1975/1976. Used ... $9.99
2 classic groovers by Fantastic Four – back to back on one CD! Alvin Stone is some of the best 70s work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s. The groove is a mix of 70s harmony soul and early Westbound disco – and the longish tracks get quite involved, both vocally and arrangement-wise. The title cut – "Alvin Stone (Birth & Death Of A Gangster)" – is a righteous post-Temps soul track, and the album's got lots of other nice ones, like "Let This Moment Last Forever", "County Line", and "My Love Won't Stop at Nothing". Night People is a with a mix of classic Detroit group soul and the tighter disco sounds that were creeping into the Westbound label at the time. Paul Riser and David Van Depitte did the arranging, and the tracks include "If I Lose My Job", "Hideaway", "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness", and the long medley of "Night People" and "Lies Divided by Jive".

Fantastic SoulsSoul To The People (parts 1 & 2) (colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 2011. New Copy ... $7.99
Damn! We sure dug the previous Fantastic Souls funky 45 on Kay Dee, but this one's a straight up monster! An eight piece combo, the Fantastic Souls are a deep enough roster bring a furiously paced, heated intensity as well have enough space for solos and more dynamic interplay. The drums are nice and heavy, the guitars vamp nicely, the horns are perfectly punchy, plus a nice bit with some bongos. On Part 2, it's stripped down and driven even more by the incredible percussion. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Essential reissue of 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

Mona FinnihI Love Myself/People Of The World ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, percussion, and sing-song vocals! The horns give the whole thing a bit more of a straight Afro Funk punch at times – which balances things out nicely. The flipside is every bit as charming as the main track – with similarly bright lyrics, and cool guitar bits that almost come across with a steel pan sort of feel at times! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Very cool package – a pic sleeve with a poster too!)
