✨✧ VariousCalypsoul 70 – Caribbean Soul 1969 to 1979 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 LPs & CD ... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of funky grooves from the Caribbean – tracks that take a strong influence from American soul and funk, then blend it heavily with hip rhythms from the islands! A few of the names here are familiar, but most are relatively obscure – and put together, the tunes on the set illustrate a hugely under-tapped scene that's filled with wonderful tunes – tracks awash in jazzy rhythms, skittish percussion, and a range of styles that move past much more familiar Jamaican sounds from down south. Drums here are often quite heavy, and matched by other percussion as well – not to mention jagged guitar lines and bass bits that really send the whole thing home! As with other Strut compilations, the overall package and liner notes are as great as the music on the disc – and the set features a total of 20 tracks that include "Of My Hands" by The Goretti Group, "Calypsoul" by Clarence Curvan & His Mod Sounds, "You Tink It Sorf" by Lancelot Layne, "Magic Fever" by Magic Circle Express, "Independent Bahamas" by Biosis Now, "Move Up Blackman" by Tyrone Taylor, "Guanavaco" by Marius Cultier, "Raycan" by The Hondells, "You Don't Love Me" by Gemini Brass, "Woman" by Sambo, "We See Jah" by Wadadli Experience, "Freedom In Africa" by Duke, "Red Light Lady" by Ophelia, and "It's A Feeling" by St Maartens The Rolling Tones.

✨✧ VariousForge Your Own Chains – Heavy Psychedelic Ballads and Dirges 1968 to 1974 ... LP
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Rare psychedelia from all over the world – rock, soul, funk and astral folk – styles flowing cohesively on a single compilation thanks to the killer melodies, hard drums & percussion, and the impeccable taste of the Now Again/Stones Throw team! Forge Your Own Chains, simply put, is one of the best ever compilations of its kind. A few of the tracks have been reissued in some capacity and have recognizable names to rare psych and funk collectors – it's to Now Again's credit that they're going for a great experience rather than simply compiling the deepest, darkest rarities – but that said, all this stuff is obscure in the grand scheme and totally amazing. It features tracks from the US, Colombia, Sweden, Iran, Nigeria and beyond – tracks by Ofege, East Of Underground, DR Hooker, Baby Grandmothers, Ana Y Jaime, The Strangers and more. Amazing, hard grooving psychedelia for obscure rock and rare beat diggers alike! Titles include "Song Of A Sinner" by Top Drawer, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by East Of Underground, "Forge Your Own Chains" by DR Hooker, ""Don't You Feel Me" by Damon, "Two To Make A Pair" by The Strangers, "It's Not Easy" by Ofege, "Somebody's Calling My Name" by Baby Grandmothers and more. 15 tracks in all.
