✨✧ Irma ThomasStraight From The Soul ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic 60s soul from one of New Orleans' greatest singers – the mighty Irma Thomas! Irma's got an approach that's a bit different than some of the more festive work coming from New Orleans during the 60s – a sadder, bluesier, more deep soul-styled approach – one that would often use some slight touches of strings and sparkling production, in a manner that was similar to the New York uptown sound of the time – but a bit rougher overall. This great package brings together a total of 24 tracks from Irma's mid 60s recordings for Imperial – tracks produced by Allen Toussaint, Eddie Ray, and Jerry Ragovoy – collected together in a package that has all the charm of Irma's best work! Titles include "Some Things You Never Get Used To", "Time Is On My Side", "Live Again", "Baby Don't Look Down", "Take A Look", "Girl Needs Boy", "I Need Your Love So Bad", "It's Starting To Get To Me Now", "Wait Wait Wait", and "The Hurt's All Gone".

✨✧ VariousGhetto Discotheque – 13 Tracks Celebrating The Disco Kings & Queens Who Kept The Faith With The Funk ... CD
Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unfortunate title – but a great set of grooves! The set's pretty unusual in that it brings together disco and club tunes from the late 70s southern scene – most of them recorded for TK records, a few more for Malaco and related labels – all of them bubbling over with that tight funk sound that made the Miami scene so great. The set goes way past the obvious club numbers from the era, and features some lesser-known and hard to find cuts that rock with a harder groove than usual – almost sounding like some of the P&P tunes from up in Harlem at the time. Titles include "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Paul Lewis, "Burning Love Breakdown" by Peter Brown, "I Get Lifted" by KC & The Sunshine Band, "Take A Chance" by Queen Samantha, "Blackwater Gold" by Sunshine Band, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor, "Odyssey (part 2)" by Johnny Harris, "Disco Energy" by Universal Energy, "Inner City Blues" by Paul Lewis, and "Do What You Wanna Do" by T-Connection. 13 tracks in all.

✨✧ Budos BandBudos Band III ... CD
Daptone, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The Daptone House Of Soul blueprint is a big part of the recipe, as it should be. Classic funky soul grit holds it all together and each cut has an unshakable groove, but with that in full effect, the group is free to explore. The Budos horns are as impeccable and communicative as ever, with brass that ranges from classic stateside funk and Afro influences. The percussion (bongos, clave, cowbell and more) is just as broadly thought out and tightly delivered, snakey bass lines, flute and the sometimes secret weapon on Budos Band III, the electric organ – which brings a bit of a garage psych/funk rock vibe. Truly exceptional work from the one of the best bands of their generation! Includes "Rite Of The Ancients", "Black Venom", "River Serpentine", "Unbroken, Unshaven", "Nature's Wrath", "Golden Dune's", "Budo's Dirge", "Raja Haje", "Crimson Skies", "Mark Of The Unnamed" and "Reppirt Yad" (a funked up Lennon/McCartney it backwards, kids).
