Bill Pursell & The Nashville Sweat BandBill Pursell & The Nashville Sweat Band & Aides ... CD
Alston/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
Funky big band work from Bill Pursell – a set that's got some of the disco charm you'd expect from the image on the cover – but one that also has some other jazzy elements too! There's not really a Nashville sound to the record – at least not in country music terms – and if anything, the record really reminds us of the way that some older New York big bands shifted up their groove during the disco generation – blending older jazz and Latin modes with elements more aimed at a contemporary dancefloor – including groovier rhythms, added strings, and female chorus vocals! Titles include "Sandwich Spread" – a nice original worth the price of the record alone – plus "Peter Piper Pumped His Pecks", "Deja Vu", "Now", "Every Day Of The Week", "Bump Me Baby", and "Hold My Hand When We're Going Home".

✨✧ Sweat BandSweat Band ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A tasty bit of late P-Funk! The album was recorded in 1980, on the wane of the main P-Funk groups – and it features Bootsy and Fred Wesley teaming up on the arrangements, in a set of bass-heavy, mostly instrumental tracks that groove hard like the best early work by Zapp! There's a great jazzy groove to the record – with loads of tasty keyboards, and less of the slapp bass funk that could sometimes ruin other efforts like this. Titles include "Love Munch", "Hyper Space", "Freak to Freak", "Body Shop", and "We Do It All Day Long". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownAin't It Funky ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years! The record has James working with the pre-JBs James Brown Band – a tight assemblage of players who really know how to craft an off-kilter groove. The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the horns, making for a syncopated groove that's utterly fantastic – as tight as a drum, and as funky as one too! Includes some great long cuts – like the 9 minute, two-part versions of "Ain't It Funky" and "Fat Wood" – plus some great shorter funky 45 type material, like "Nose Job", "Use Your Mother", "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose", and a version of "Cold Sweat". All the work here is tremendous – the kind of inspirational funky material that makes the album a lasting classic decade after decade! LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownLive At The Apollo Volume II ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1968. Used ... $11.99
James Brown's great second album recorded live at the Apollo Theater in Harlem – a set we like even better than the first famous volume – because it's much more stretched-out, harder-hitting, and full of fire! You'd be hard pressed to find a better example of Brown's showmanship on record – as James urges the band through these triple-time takes on some of his classics, and turns in some amazing work in the process! The set includes a killer long version of "There Was A Time" – almost the blueprint of the James Brown funk sound to come – and other titles include "Bring It Up", "Let Yourself Go", and a wonderful duet version of "Think" – plus "Prisoner Of Love", "Out Of Sight", "Try Me", "It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World", "Lost Someone","Thanks", "Cold Sweat", "I Feel Alright", and "Please, Please, Please".

LighthouseLighthouse/Suite Feeling/Peacing It All Together ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of albums by this very unique group – all brought together in one mighty nice package! First up is the self-titled Lighthouse album – the first record by Lighthouse – a strange band that's always incredibly hard to peg, but who have a sound that we always end up liking a lot! The group mix together folk rock styles with a touch of soul and funk – going for some nice grooves that build up from lots of drum work and airy vocal production, touched here by lots of horns, in a style that's a bit like Blood Sweat & Tears, but a lot lot cooler! This first album is something of a landmark in the jazz/rock vein – and titles include "Never Say Goodbye", "Follow The Stars", "Mountain Man", "Whatever Forever", "Marsha Marsha", and a great cover of "Eight Miles High". Suite Feeling is a record with a full, spacious sound – one that definitely lives up to the "suite feeling" you'd expect! The style here is even more sophisticated than on the group's debut – still a mix of jazzy horns and rockish rhythms, but fused together even more perfectly – but with a leanness that's a good contrast to some of the more overblown groups of the same generation! There's just the right balance here to allow some standout solos – on horns, natch, but also some sweet Hammond too – and a young Howard Shore is also in the group on alto sax, and handled some of the arrangements for the record. Titles include a great version of "A Day In The Life" – plus originals "Taking A Walk", "Could You Be Concerned", "Chest Fever", "Feel So Good", "Places On Faces Four Blue Carpet Traces", and "What Sense". Last up is Peacing It All Together – maybe the most complex album so far from Lighthouse – a set that begins with some great heavy drums, then rolls into the group's trademark blend of jazzy riffing, rocking rhythms, and soaring arrangements! There's a bit more Sunshine Pop in Lighthouse compared to some of their contemporaries in the jazz rock world at the start of the 70s – no attempts to be unnaturally soulful in the lyrics, nor too posturing either – and instead, there's almost a vocal gentleness that makes for a nice counterpoint to the full instrumental modes of the large horn-heavy ensemble. A few cuts get nice and funky, and titles include "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo/Let The Happiness Begin", "The Country Song", "Sausalito", "The Fiction Of Twenty Six Million", "On My Way To LA", and "Daughters & Sons".

Ramon MorrisSweet Sister Funk ... CD
Groove Merchant/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the rarest albums on the Groove Merchant label – and one of the best! Ramon Morris has a sweet tone on the tenor that works very well with the electric piano in his tight little combo – grooving with a style that's like the best Black Jazz funk records of the time – mixing together bright notes, funky rhythms, and plenty of great chord changes! Cecil Bridgewater's on trumpet, and the band has a really righteous feel – with lots of real soul and thoughtful playing mixed into the jazz funk grooves of the record. Massive – with titles that include "Sweat", "Lord Sideways", "Sweet Sister Funk", and a nice version of "People Make The World Go Round". CD

✨✧ VariousGood God! – Heavy Funk Covers Of James Brown From All Over The World 1968 to 1974 ... LP
Guerilla Reissues, Late 60s-Mid 70s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Good God, indeed – a masterful compilation of some of the weirdest James Brown covers you've ever heard – a truly global assortment of tunes, all of which really keep the best funky spirit of The Godfather in place! The tracks here go way past the usual, and most of the numbers are all quite obscure – tracks recorded not even by soul singers, but by an assortment of artists of many different genres– all working at different points around the globe in the 60s and 70s, brought together here by their love of James' original funky vision! And in case you're worried about these tunes being some watered-down version of the JB groove, put your fears to rest – because all the cuts here have as many funky breaks and hard riffing as any of James' best from back in the day – sometimes even more, given the weirdness of their styles! Titles include "Cold Sweat" by El Klan, "Mother Popcorn" by Dillard Crume & The Soul Rockers, "Sou Negro" by Toni Tornado, "Do It" by Lil Tiger, "Tema De Zorra" by Waltel Branco, "Popcorn" by East Of Underground, "There Was A Time" by Six Pack, "Hot Pants Road" by Tihomir Pop Asanovic, "Hot Pants" by El Combo Xingu, "Think" by Skorpyons Of Jamaica, "Papa Don't Take No Mess" by Som Livre House Band, "Lickin Stick" by Willie Dickson & The Playboys, and "My Thing/I Made A Mistake" by Douglass High School Stage Band 1970.

✨✧ James BrownGettin' Down To It (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little album by James Brown – and very different than his other work! He cut this one with the groovy Dee Felice Trio – a jazz-based combo that he recorded on their own for King, on another very rare, very excellent record. The band's in similar form here, although not necessarily as funky – and they do a great job of giving James' vocals a jazzy twist that they don't have on other albums – proving yet again that The Godfather can handle just about any sort of groove that he wants! Features a wonderfully groover version of "Sunny", which moves along very nicely – plus remakes of "There Was A Time" and "Cold Sweat", along with the tracks "Uncle" and "That's Life".

✨✧ Garry Mac & The Mac TruqueTruqued Up ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible bit of hard party soul, with a great funky twist, and some tight garagey playing from this all-white Kansas City combo! Garry and crew probably played out in the same southern party circuit as Doug Clark & The Hot Nuts and Wayne Cochran, and as you'll hear in this live album, they really know how to set an audience on fire. The album's got some great funky covers – like "I Got The Feelin", "Cold Sweat", "Lickin Stick Lickin Stick", and "I Thank You" – all of which feature the band wailing away on organ, guitar, and funky trumpet. Great stuff throughout – with the raw intensity of a late 60s R&B show! LP, Vinyl record album
