✨✧ FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You ... LP
Warner, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers". LP, Vinyl record album

Philippe WynneWynne Jammin ... LP
Uncle Jam, 1980. Very Good- ... $6.99
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 some wear and marker on both sides.)

Mel BrownEighteen Pounds Of Unclean Chitlins & Other Greasy Blues Specialties ... LP
ABC/Bluesway, Early 70s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Cool little compilation of Mel Brown's funky guitar tracks recorded for Impulse during the late 60's, brought together in this cool package with a nice "soul food" cover, and great cuts like "Chunk A Funk", "Good Stuff", "Home James", and "18 Pounds Of Unclean Chitlings". Lots of nice organ and guitar grooves, with a good stoner west coast sound! LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinwrap is cracked a bit on the opening.)

Count Ossie & The Rasta FamilyMan From Higher Heights (with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 29.99
A lost spiritual reggae set from Count Ossie – recorded after his classic Tales Of Mozambique album, but not issued until many years after his death in 1976! The album's shrouded in mystery – released without much in the way of notes, and unclear how much the sounds had transformed since their original recording – perhaps augmented by the Rasta Family, perhaps standing as clear as they were when Ossie first laid them down! Yet the story's less important than the sound – a much earthier, organic approach to territory that was usually more studio-tweaked in the world of dub – served up with plenty of strong Rasta currents in the rhythms, even though the album's instrumental overall – standing as further proof that the message of Jamaican music could be delivered at so many different levels. Titles include "Cruising Down The Nile", "Africa We Want Fe Go", "Misfits", "Crossing River Jordan", "Mystic Memories", and "Drums For Wise Man". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownGettin' Down To It (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
King, 1969. Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
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
(Blue label pressing. Cover has unglued seams and a cutout hole.)
