✨✧ TeaseTease (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day mode – tight tight tight rhythms from the group, done in a way that matches their sporty leather suits on the cover – with a sharpness that never lets up, and a great sense of a hook alongside the electric funk in the rhythms! Ollie Brown produced and arranged, and titles include "Bite", "Flash", "Boys & Girls", "Saturday Night", "Pretty Little Lady", "Put The Brakes On Baby", and "I Found In You". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges/Tarot ... CD
Music Box (France), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of wonderful soundtracks from the great Michel Colombier – and film music that's every bit as groovy as some of his backings for French singers at the time! First up is Les Onze Mille Verges – a great mix of the groovy and the romantic – and one of the best soundtracks ever from mad French arranger Michel Colombier! The album kicks off with Colombier's famous "Batucada Erotica" – a darkly jagged number that brings together percussion and voices into a really striking groove, one that's made the track a favorite for years in the jazz dance crowd. Other tracks move into a style that's either mellower or more orchestral – the mellower cuts dipping along with a style that's half French (ala Francis Lai's 70s work), and half like some of the best mellow Italian soundtrack work of the same period. A few tunes have weird chorus vocals – almost in a Carmina Burana mode – and titles include "Les 11,000 Verges", "Wanda E Nadege", "Batucada Erotica", "Natacha", "Port Arthur", and "Strip Tease Pour Un Japonais". Tarot is a soundtrack that has a slightly different style – some nice use of vocals by Nanette Workman on a few tunes – a singer who brings a bit more soul to the record than the usual throwaway disco lyrics you'd hear on other European film scores. Lots of other numbers make use of keyboards, but in a very different way – sometimes stark and cold, but still quite tuneful – sometimes bubbling with a more Rhodes-like vibe that creates a nice sense of balance. Titles include "Breakdown", "Blind Luck", "Tarot", "Incantation", "Reading The Cards", "Doggie Style", and "Hearing Aid". CD

VariousCold Waves Of Color – Cold Wave, Electronic Synth Pop & Minimal Tracks From The Color Tapes Archive 1981 to 1985 ... CD
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
Rare sounds from the UK underground of the mid 80s – work from a post-post-punk period that's come to be known as the cold wave – when electronic musicians who weren't sucked into the pop mainstream went deeper down and created some really wonderful sounds on their own! Most of the tracks here were only ever issued on cassette – which makes them even more lost to the sands of time than vinyl from the period – and the music has a rich blend of different analogue electronic modes that takes us from the moodier sounds of early Sheffield and Manchester to some of the warmer work of the Rough Trade or Cherry Red scenes. A few cuts here are appearing for the first time ever – and titles include "Don't Surrender" by WeR7, "Age Of Lights (inst)" by Modern Art, "Pigst Cafe" by Mystery Plane, "Space Is The Bass" by The Lord, "Beyond Reason Beyond Time" by Disintegrators, "Lives Of Angels" by Lives Of Angel, and "Tease" by Berserk In A Hayfield.

✨✧ CommodoresHot On The Tracks ... LP
Motown, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early funk from the Commodores – back in the days when Lionel Richie could still get up and groove! We'll be the first to admit that we're sometimes put off by the group, given their later hits, but it's records like this that actually remind us how great they could be – a mixture of funk and sweet soul, done with an incredibly well-crafted approach, and enough of a blend of the two styles to keep things interesting! The album's got a wonderfully tight quality – never slick or too smooth, but just nicely put together – commercial, but not so much so that it loses its soul. Titles include "Quick Draw", "Just To Be Close To You", "High On Sunshine", "Let's Get Started", "Can't Let You Tease Me", "Come Inside", and "Thumpin Music". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMambo Calypso ... LP
Grossoi (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great mix of Latin and Caribbean sounds from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – music from Cuba, Colombia, Haiti, and Puerto Rico – plus a few island-inspired records from the US as well! The styles here definitely fall near the mambo and calypso promised in the title – but there's also a larger vibe going on, too – as styles and influences criss-cross nicely, at a level that makes the track selection here especially fresh! Titles include "O Look Misery" by Blind Blake, "Cumba Del Caribe" by Pacho Galan, "Jamaicuba" by Mongo Santamaria, "Baila Yemeya" by Celia Cruz, "Strip Tease" by Lord Power, "Besitos De Coco" by Rafael Cortijo, "Ahora Si Hay Melao" by Joseito Mateo, "Mambo Calypso" by Duke Of Iron, and "Cumba Sobre El Mar" by Trio Serenata.

✨✧ VariousVamps Et Vampire – The Songs Of Serge Gainsbourg ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Serge Gainsbourg never slept – and during his short time on this planet, managed to cut not only a host of incredible records for himself, but also write and produce some amazing music for a whole host of female singers too! The work on this set is mostly French – and features a range that goes past just the likely compatriots from Serge's inner circle, to include bigger names from Parisian pop who were touched by his sublime songwriting skills, and his innate ear for a sexy groove! The album's a wonderfully focused collection of female French numbers – all of which have that undeniable slinky sound we love in Gainsbourg's own recordings too. Titles include "Pour Aimer Il Faut Etre Trois" by Isabelle Aubert, "Les Yeux Pour Pleurer" by Nana Mouskouri, "La Chanson De Prevert" by Vicky Autier, "La Javanaise" by Juliette Greco, "Baudelaire" by Catherine Sauvage, "Les Sucettes" by France Gall, "Elastique" by Charlotte Gainsbourg, "Tandem" by Vanessa Paradis, "Lulu" by Bambou, "Con C'Est Con Ces Consequences" by Jane Birkin, "L'Anamour" by Francoise Hardy, "Reves Et Caravells" by Michele Arnaud, "Jane B" by Jane Birkin, "Hier Ou Demain" by Marianne Faithfull, "Strip Tease" by Juliette Greco, and "Contact" by Brigitte Bardot.

✨✧ CerroneBrigade Mondaine – The Original Soundtrack Anthology (Vice Squad/La Secte De Marrakech/Vaudou Aux Caraibes) (3LP/3CD set) ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 3LP & 3CD (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mighty great set – three rare soundtracks from dancefloor maestro Cerrone – none of which we ever see on vinyl here in the US! First up is Vice Squad (aka Brigade Mondaine) – a rare soundtrack from the mighty Cerrone – recorded right at the height of his electro disco fame, and with a very similar groove! The film was also titled Vice Squad in the US market – and the music here definitely echoes the sleaze of its subject matter – with loads of sweet clubby lines that are heavy in the keyboard styles you'll know from "Supernature" – but maybe even leaner and meaner here – with a stripped-down punch that makes for plenty of funky disco moments! The tracks are mostly groovers, but even the few mellow moments are great – and titles include "Phonic", "Give Me Love", "Make Up", "The Loft", "Strip Tease", "Experience", and "Deauville". The set follows with two more albums in the Brigade Mondaine series – both similarly groovy, with a wonderful mix of disco grooves and crime/cop soundtrack styles – and all three records come with original album sleeve artwork, and bonus CD versions of the material too!

✨✧ Koko TaylorBasic Soul ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Basic soul, plenty of blues, and a fair bit of funk as well – a killer from Koko Taylor, recorded in that best style of late Chess Records! Koko sings here more like a funky female soul artist than on her later blues – and the record crackles with energy right from the start, thanks to impeccable production from Willie Dixon – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean! The core group is nice and tight – and all Chicago-bred – Joe Young on guitar, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Louis Satterfield on bass – and Gene Barge added just a bit of horns over the top, to deepen the soul of the tunes. Titles include "Pollution", "Tease Your Man", "That's The Way Love Is", "Un Huh My Baby", "It's A Poor Dog", "I Need More & More", and "Let Me Love You Baby". CD

Martin BoettcherPfarrer Braun ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 2003. New Copy ... $22.99
Contemporary music from German maestro Martin Boettcher – but sounds that are often done in his best groovy style of the 70s! The work here is all from a relatively recent TV show, but has this bright, swinging style that's like the grooviest German easy listening or sound library instrumentals of the 70s – often done with instrumentation that's a lot more vintage than contemporary, from the fuller orchestrations down to the keyboard passages and woodwind elements. There's plenty of numbers that feel as if they could have been lifted right off some vintage soundtrack – which makes the album a perfect fit for the All Score label – and the CD features a massive 34 tracks, with titles that include "Pfarrer Braun Thema", "Cantus Delphini", "Steine Zu Brot", "Tourismus", "Tiefe Blicke", "Striptease", and "Am Pool".

DellsThey Said It Couldn't Be Done – But We Did It ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove – one that supports the group with backings from players that include key Philly talents like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Larry Washington, and Earl Young – but which also keeps plenty of space for the sublime harmonies that always made The Dells so great! Titles include "Teaser", "Our Love", "Could It Be", "Rich Man Poor Man", "Waiting For You", "Get On Down", and "Betcha Never Been Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej KorzynskiMan Of Marble ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from Polish soundtrack artist Andrez Korzynski – done in a range of groovy styles that rivals some of the best Italian and French work of the time! At points, there's an all-out funky feel to the record that matches Euro cop/crime soundtracks with effortless ease – and at other passages, things are still pretty darn groovy, even when mellow – using guitar and keyboards in a laidback way that has you knowing there's plenty of funk to come! Most cuts are from the film Man Of Marble, but the set also includes a few from the later Man Of Iron that are equally great – and titles include "Man Of Marble", "The Port", "A Witness", "In The Shipyard", "The Katowice Ironworks", "The Striptease", and "Truncheon Man".

Rolf KuhnPerrak & Other Film Music Composed By Rolf Kuhn ... LP
All Score Media (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
A great lost chapter in the career of German reedman Rolf Kuhn – an artist we mostly know for his jazz recordings, but who also did some really great soundtrack material at the start of the 70s! The package here features tracks from the film Perrak, plus key instrumentals from other Kuhn projects of the same time – almost all of which have this wonderfully soaring, wonderfully grooving feel that matches some of the best Brit or Italian soundtrack material of the time – but with the kind of added jazzy twist you'd expect from Kuhn's background! Even the mellow numbers are great – with this spacious sense of sound that's really transformative, like some lost sound library melodies – and the pacing of the whole album is wonderful – so that the right moods are balanced out perfectly throughout. Titles include "Desperate/Bleakly", "Bossa Barbarella (parts 1 & 2)", "Foggy Morning", "Hunting II", "Yellow Water", "Chase & Fear", "Hippy Dibby", "Sun Of India", and "Street Bounce/Striptease Background".

AT ToombsVeteran Of Love ... CD
Soul Junction (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
A great debut from Anthony Toombs – a Milwaukee soul singer who slaved away as a maintenance engineer during the day, while cutting this totally sweet album at night! The album's got a classic sort of male soul vibe all the way through – not 60s or 70s, but that best warm approach of the 80s, on the deeper side of the spectrum – as Toombs works his way over beats and keyboards with a warmth that really holds up throughout the entire album – never too overdone, or postured – but a confidence that makes the lyrics ring true. Titles include "Past Love", "For The Ladies Only", "Distant Lover", "Playing The Field", "Want To Be Your Man", and "Teaser". CD

✨✧ VariousWKQX Hometown Album ... LP
WKQX, 1977. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A pretty interesting slice of Chicago in the mid 70s – featuring a host of acts that never made it at all! The concept of the album was a contest by radio station WKQX to showcase a host of original groups from Chicago – and out of 1900 tapes submitted, 11 different groups were chosen to record for the album. To our ears, the best act on the set are the funk group The New Earth Rhythm Band – who submitted the tasty ensemble number "Pork Butts" – an obscure bit of jazzy funk that's certainly worth the price of the record alone. Most of the other work is in the rock vein – both hard and soft – by artists that include Tetra, Vesuvious, Teaser, Street Kids, and Ashcraft. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George BensonWhile The City Sleeps ... LP
Warner, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one's far more of a straight soul album than most of George Benson's earlier vocal sets – but as usual, the work is pretty high caliber throughout – and George is definitely on top of his game here, effortlessly beating others at the style they'd all started to cop from Benson by the time! Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set. Titles include "Teaser", "Shiver", "While The City Sleeps", "Kisses In The Moonlight", "Too Many Times", and "Did You Hear Thunder". LP, Vinyl record album

An album that further cements Angela Bofill's relationship with Narada Michael Walden – as Walden produced almost every track in the set, and does a fair bit of songwriting too! The style is electric 80s soul, with a fair bit of keyboards and beats in the mix – but as usual with Bofill, there's an undeniable sense of warmth to the music that's totally great. Titles include "Still A Thrill", "You're A Special Part Of Me", "Gotta Make It Up To You", "Crazy For Him", "I'm On Your Side", "Call Of The Wild", and "Special Delivery". LP, Vinyl record album

A grimy bouncer from Pete Rock and Dead Prez! Pete Rock lays down some dirty piano loop, heavy drum funk on this track – with this terse, violin and string loop on the hook that kinda bumps this thing like the Psycho soundtrack has gone hip hop! Dead Prez leaves the revolutionary politicin' on the floor for some dizzying thug paranoia, wack mack club observations and ghetto commentary – equating the club scene with a war zone. Amazingly, the track STILL somehow manages to hold water as a genuine club banger. A hot one – and a very promising teaser for the Soul Survivor II album! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Excellent work by composer/leader Pete Rugolo – Stan Kenton's old partner in modernist jazz, and the force behind excellent work by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and others. This album's got a great "crime jazz" sound – with an approach that sort of starts at the Peter Gunn level, but which gets much crazier as the record goes on.
