Philippe WynneWynne Jammin ... LP
Uncle Jam, 1980. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great little album of tracks from Wynne – former lead singer of The Spinners, sounding great here amidst some tightly woven arrangements produced by Ron Dunbar and George Clinton. The album's not a P-Funk sounding one – but a strong batch of modern soul tunes that works off the sublime quality of the early 70s Spinners recordings in Philly, and which updates the sound in a mode that's almost Philly modern. Titles include "We Dance So Good Together", "Put Your Own Puzzle Together", "Never Gonna Tell It", "You Gotta Take Chances", and "Breakout". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ P Funk All StarsUrban Dancefloor Guerillas ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
George Clinton may have pretty well disbanded Parliament and Funkadelic by the time the 80s came around, but the Mothership is still soaring highly on this first album from the P-Funk All Stars project – featuring some (but not all) of George Clinton's better players from various groups! Urban Dancefloor Guerillas his a pretty great little set of jammed-up cuts produced by Clinton, Bootsy, Gary Shider, and Sly Stewart. The flame was still burning, even in the "dark years" of the litigious early 80s – on a set that's actually a bit more stylistically diverse than some the related projects, though unified by never wavering funk! Titles include "Copy Cat", "Pumpin' It Up", "Catch A Keeper", and "Generator Pop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Sweat BandSweat Band ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1980. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Cover has edge wear, a few spots of sticker residue, and an unglued bottom seam.)

James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was taken up around the world, and which still packs a pretty hard punch today! The album's filled with other excellent cuts – like the tasty funk number "Lickin' Stick", with some rocket-driven guitar, and the great instrumental "Shades of Brown". Other titles include "Goodbye My Love (parts 1&2)", "Let Them Talk", "I Love You", and "I Guess I'll Have To Cry Cry Cry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George DukeAura Will Prevail ... LP
MPS, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help from an array of great singers and players from the west coast scene. Duke's still stretching out plenty on keyboards – but never in a too-jamming, too-indulgent way – always sensitive enough to never mess up the groove, and always with a sense of space and timing that never showed up this well in his later records. Players include Airto on percussion, Alphonso Johnson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Duke himself on more keyboards than we could ever hope to list here! Vocals are by Sylvia St James, Gee Janzen, and Kathy Woehrle – as well as Duke himself – and titles include "Foosh", "For Love", "Uncle Remus", "Fools", "The Aura", "Enchinda's Arf", "Floop De Loop", and "Dawn". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a sticker on the back.)

✨✧ Zoot Money's Big Roll BandBig Time Operators – The Singles 1964 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Wah Wah (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Slammin soul from Zoot Money – one of the hottest acts going on the mid 60s London scene, and an artist whose work was awash in styles borrowed from American R&B and soul jazz! Zoot's work of the time was a key force in opening the door to more soul-based sounds in the UK – and although others always credit the Rolling Stones with bringing blues to Britain, we've always been much more partial to the jazz-based styles of Zoot Money and others of the beat group generation – whose work helped transform sounds tremendously, and allow a shift towards more progressive fusions in years to come! The vibe on most of these tracks borrows heavily from James Brown, Ray Charles, and other bigger American soul acts – but there's also plenty of smoking Hammond and deeply-blown tenor on most tracks too, furthering the jazzier side of Money's sound. The set features all of Zoot's important singles, both a and b-sides – and titles incude "The Uncle Willy", "Good", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Let's Run For Cover", "Self Discipline", "Zoot's Sermon", "Mound Moves", "Star Of The Show", "Jump Back", "It Should've Been Me", "Please Stay", and "Zoot's Suit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies – in a great cover that has that classic UK 60s back-flap style, with a bonus insert of notes and photos too!)
