✨✧ Tyrone Ashley's Funky Music MachineLet Me Be Your Man ... CD
Truth & Soul, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Lost funky soul from Jersey – incredible work by Tyrone Ashley & The Funky Music Machine – a rare batch of gritty harmony soul and some mighty funky numbers! Tyrone, aka Sonny Campbell, and the Machines were contemporaries of the Parliaments and future P-Funkers George Clinton and Bernie Worrell in 1960s Plainfield, NJ – and they just missed some opportunities to make it in the national landscape. They ended up working with the Phil LA Of Soul label out of Philly in the late 60s, which resulted in one great single and an LP that was never released. The deep funky soul diggers at Truth & Soul have put together some of the Phil LA Of Soul tracks plus previously unreleased material cut at Ashley's own Record Hut studio during this period – great stuff that rolls from the grittiest of harmony group soul, with soaring lead vocals – to some straight killer funk tunes! Incredible stuff! Tracks include "Come On Home", "Just A Little While Longer", "I Can't Help Myself", "For Your Love", "Let Me Be Your Man" (inst), "Sing A Song Sister", "Can't Stay Away", "Love Sweet Love", "Gotta Clean Up The World" (Pt 1 & Pt 2), "I Want My Baby Back" (inst) and "Does Frankie Ever Call My Name.

Hee SistersDisKo Girls – The Anta Records Years Anthology 1978 to 1980 (3CD set) ... CD
Anta/Cobra Rose (Korea), Late 70s. Used 3CD ... $19.99
Get ready to discover a whole new world of disco you've never heard before – South Korean grooves from the late 70s, courtesy of the lovely Hee Sisters – a soulful trio to match the best American female dancefloor acts of the time! The Hee Sisters sing predominantly in Korean, and work in this really cool blend of Philly disco modes and some deeper East Asian pop sounds – which oddly has the tunes sparkling with a bit more feeling than you might expect, even if you can't understand the language – the kind of blue undercurrents you'd get in Japanese pop from obscure film soundtracks and sources of that nature. There's plenty of groovers mixed in with more laidback tracks – and the instrumentation often features sweet keyboards that move with the vocals like some late 70s Italian styles. And the package is great, too – a 7" square, hardcover book – filled with color pages that have vintage photos of the girls, plus notes in Korean and English, with album cover reproductions on nice heavy pages – all a bit like the Motown Singles sets issued over here. Two CDs feature vintage tracks from the girls, and one more features contemporarie remixes from Korea – showing the continued Hee Sisters influences over the years! CD

Sonny RollinsTenor Madness (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 1956. Used ... $6.99
A groundbreaking album from Sonny Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the Red Garland/Paul Chambers/Philly Joe Jones group that backed up 'Trane on many of his Prestige sides, and they work equally well with Rollins – especially on the ballads "When your Lover Has Gone" and "My Reverie", plus the lyrical "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World".

✨✧ Miles DavisNew Miles Davis Quintet ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge moment in jazz – not just for trumpeter Miles Davis, but also for saxophonist John Coltrane – who was virtually introduced to the world at large with this record! As you might guess from the title, the record's the first to feature Coltrane playing along with Davis – a sublime combination that resulted in some key sides that forever helped shape the sound of jazz. Rhythm is by the famous trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – and apart from the top-shelf solo work, the interplay between the horns is also fantastic. Titles include "Just Squeeze Me", "There Is No Greater Love", "How Am I To Know", "S'Posin", "The Theme", and "Stablemates". CD

✨✧ O'JaysBack Stabbers ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album for the O'Jays – a set that moved them from the indie ranks to 70s megasoulstatus! After years of bumping around on a variety of labels, and in a variety of styles, the group really exploded with this wonderful set – an album that has them soaring along in the righteous Philly groove of the early 70s – a sound that turned out to be a perfect foil for the trio's sublime, yet earthy harmonies. Arrangements are by some fo the best of the core Philly scene – Thom Bell, Norman Harris, Ronnie Baker, and Bobby Martin – and the album's overflowing with great tunes that completely redefine the sound of group soul in the 70s! Includes megahits "Back Stabbers" and "Love Train" – plus "Shiftless, Shady, Jealous Kind of People", "When The World's At Peace", "Time To Get Down", "Who Am I" and more! CD

✨✧ ArtisticsBest Of The Artistics ... CD
Brunswick, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from this Chicago soul group – a set that brings together all the beautiful best the Artistics recorded for Brunswick Records! At the label, the group had that soaring, lilting vibe that virtually defined the Chicago group sound at the end of the 60s – a bit more punch than some of the east coast harmony acts, but not as tightly compressed as Detroit or Philly either. The collection's overflowing with goodness – 15 tracks in all, with titles that include "I'm Gonna Miss You", "Girl I Need You", "Hard To Carry On", "Yesterday's Girl", "Walking Tall", "The Price Of Love", "Lonely Old World", "What Happened", "When I'm Not Around", "With These Hands", "Just Another Heartache", "I Want You To Make My Life Over", and "Troubles Heartaches & Pain".

✨✧ Cody ChestnuttHeadphone Masterpiece ... CD
Ready Set Go, 2002. Used 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
Tripped-out soul from Cody Chestnutt – a double-CD set that's an instant classic! Cody's sound is really unique – a lo-fi blend of styles that stretches back to Sly Stone and Shuggie Otis, with elements of the current Philly underground, bits of crispy hip hop production, and even some traces of early 70s underground rock . Beats are lean and messy – and Cody's voice has an honest upfront approach that really works with the lyrics, which are some of the most striking that you'll find on an album of this nature. The whole thing's got an "in the bedroom" feel that's as carefully calculated as it is casually compelling – and Cody's style really holds up, even over the course of 2 CDs! Titles include "Boylife In America", "No One Will", "Smoke & Love", "The Seed", "Magic In A Mortal Minute", "The World Is Coming To My Party", "Out Of Nowhere", and "My Women My Guitars". CD

✨✧ Tommy Stewart & OthersMake Happy Music ... CD
FTG, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer grooves from the legendary Tommy Stewart – one of the funkiest producers on the Atlanta scene of the 70s – as you'll hear in this batch of wonderful tracks! Tommy's well-known for work under his own name – but this set also features some of his best productions for other artists too – a really unified batch of groovers that moves from mellow steppers through some tighter, more funky-based cuts too. The whole package is a delight – a look into a musical world that never got as much exposure as some of the scenes up in New York or Philly, but which certainly rivaled both of them for top-quality grooves. There's some great notes with the CD – telling the tale of Stewart's career, and that of partner Marlin McNicholls – and the package features cuts that include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Messin Around" by The Spirit Of Atlanta, "Que Pasa" by The Final Approach, "Big Fat Juicy Fun" by Hambone, "Let's Boogie At The Disco" by 3rd World Band, "Cream De Coco" by Disco Strut, "Fulton County Line" by Tommy Stewart, "Cosmic Funk" by Mad Dog Fire Department, "Party Night" by Stevo, "Dancing Down The Avenue" by Sherman Hunter, and the classic club cuts "Make Happy Music" and "Bump & Hustle Music" by Tommy Stewart.

✨✧ VariousConquer The World – The Lost Soul Of Philadelphia International Records ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Philly International, way past the hits – presented here on a special collection of key rarities from the legendary label! If you think you've heard Philly before, get ready to think again – because the tracks here are all non-iconic gems from the deeper reaches of the label – deeper soul, hipper club, and heavier funk than you might expect from the sweeter chart singles the imprint scored back in the 70s! The package is a masterpiece – way better than we might have expected, and featuring some key tracks that even we'd never heard before – more than enough to have you digging funky 45s for Philly International. Tracks include "Ghetto Woman (parts 1 & 2)" by Ruth McFadden, "Everybody Needs Good Lovin (parts 1 & 2)" by Bunny Sigler, "Days Go By" by Bobby Bennett, "It's So Wonderful" by Johnny Williams, "Makin Up Time (parts 1 & 2)" by Frankie & The Spindles, "Hard Workin Man" by Pat & The Blenders, "Theme From Five Fingers Of Death" by Bunny Sigler, "Good & Plenty" by Carolyn Crawford, "Yellow Sunshine" by Yellow Sunshine, "Darling Come Back Home" by Love Committee, and "Grasshopper" by The Soul Devalents.
