Jimi Tenor & Kabu KabuMystery Of Aether ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. New Copy ... $8.99
We've always loved the music of Jimi Tenor – but recently, he seems to get better and better with each new record – hitting a spiritual, soulful depth we never would have expected years ago! This album's one of his best efforts ever – and feels more like some lost 70s Euro/African rarity – as you might expect from the compelling cover! All the jazz elements of previous Tenor projects are in place – but there's also more of a pan-global influence going on – especially in the complicated percussion that graces most tracks, and which provides a wonderful counterpart to instrumentation that includes tenor, flutes, and piano from Jimi – plus trumpet from Julla Eskola and Tero Lindberg, trombone from Jay Kortehisto and Heikki Tuhkanen, and guitar from Kalle Kalima. Tracks are long, and have a feel that's somewhere between Strata East and Parisian Afro jazz experiments of the 70s – and titles include "Universal Love", "Afroeuropean", "Eternal Mystery", "Africa Kingdom", "Dance Of The Planets", "Curtain Of Steel", and "Starstuff".

Too ShortBorn To Mack ... LP
Dangerous/Jive, 1988. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the quintessential albums that put the Bay Area on the hip hop map, and the first major label full length from one of the west coast's most prolific rappers. The minimalist sound works SO well here – there's not much in the mix besides drum machine, a bit of bass and the occasional cut or scratch – all the better to allow Too Short's street tales and profane rhymes pave the ground with singular power and charisma. Tracks include "Freaky Tales", "Partytime", "You Know What I Mean", "Dope Fiend Beat", "Little Girls", "The Universal Mix" and "Playboy $hort II". LP, Vinyl record album

TyWork Of Heart ... CD
Jazz Refreshed (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $13.99
Nice one from Brit hip hop mainstay Ty – living up to the title with personal lyricism from the heart, but soulful a broader, universal sense too – with appearances by John Robinson, Deborah Jordan, N'fa Jones, Julie Dexter, Umar Bin Hassan and more! Ty is hands on with the production as well, with a lean, spacey bounce that'll get heads nodding without crowding out the rhymes. Includes the title track, "Eyes Open" with Roots & Deborah Jordan, the spiritually resonant standout "Somehow Somewhere Someway" with Umar Bin Hassan, "Brixton Baby" with Mpho, "Marathon" feat Ladonna Harley-Peters, "Folks Say People Say", "World Of Flaws" with John Robinson, "Raindrops", "As The Smoke Clears" with Randolph Matthews & Malik MD7 and more.

Sarah VaughanTime In My Life ... LP
Mainstream, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Sarah Vaughn's looking pretty groovy on the cover of this album, and she's sounding pretty groovy too – thanks to some sweet 70s backings from Ernie Wilkins! The style isn't exactly funky, but it's got some fully soulful sounds, and some great electric moments too – modes that almost feel more like some of the best Kudu Records vocal sets from the time, instead of the usual Mainstream Records groove. Sarah really fits well in this sort of setting – stretching out into groovier territory than before with the same sense of change that Ella Fitzgerald or Marlena Shaw were bringing to their music at the time. Players include Jerome Richardson on saxes, Buddy Childers on trumpet, Benny Powell on trombone, Jimmy Cobb on percussion, and Earl Palmer on drums – and titles include "Inner City Blues", "Magical Connection", "Universal Prisoner", "Tomorrow City", "That's The Way I've Always Heard It", "Imagine", "On Thinking It Over", and "If Not For You".

VariousBattle Of The DJ's ... LP
Jive, 1988. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Collection of 10 tracks from the days when DJ's were an essential part of any hip hop group. The concept here is that all the songs are either about the DJ or feature lots of DJ work. The bonus here is the version of "Eric B is President", a 6 minute mix that uses the vocals from the version on Zakia (not the vocals that appeared later on 4th & Broadway). Other tracks include "Code's Megamix" (a mix of early Schoolly D singles done by his DJ, Code Money), Run-DMC "Jam Master Jammin", Kurtis Blow "AJ Scratch", Cash Money & Marvelous "Ugly People Be Quiet", Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff", Grandmaster Flash "Larry's Dance Theme", Steady B & DJ Tat Money "Rockin Music", Whodini "Now That Whodini's Inside The Joint", Too Short "DJ Universal Mix" LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBeat Girls Espanol – 1960s She Pop From Spain ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 25.99
Cool cuts from 60s Spain – all pulled from a musical moment when the Spanish scene was exploding with the same sort of new female pop energy that was taking place in France and England! Like those more familiar modes of 60s girl pop, the style here is upbeat, groovy, and undeniably powerful – quite a change from some of the bluer, weepier modes of the decade before – and a way of infusing the female voice with new energy through lively arrangements, and great use of jaunty rock styles! Lyrics are in Spanish throughout, but there's a universal appeal to the music that really bridges boundaries – excellent small combo instrumentation, often romping along with a pretty great groove – on titles that include "Creo En Ti" by Rico Durcal, "Corazon Contento" by Marisol, "Si Llegara El Amor" by Rosalia, "Aqui En Mi Nube" by Sonia, "Molino Al Viento" by Los Stop, "Prima O Poi" by Silvana Velsasco, "No Se Por Que" by Massiel, "La Verdad" by Soledad Miranda, "Pon Un Anillo En Mi Dedo" by Las Chic, and "Voy A Pintar Los Paredes Con Tu Nombre" by Los Mismos.

VariousDe-Liteful & Soulful – Mellow Mover ... CD
De-Lite/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early/Mid 70s. Used ... $18.99
A really rare side of the legendary De-Lite Records – served up here in a range of obscure 45s before the company exploded into bigger fame with the success of Kool & The Gang! The work here puts De-Lite right on the same level as important indies on the east coast at the turn of the 70s – and shows an especially strong ability to capture the best group styles of the period – from the sublime harmony styles being crafted in New Jersey and Philly, to some of the growing funky styles in the pre-disco years! The set's a much-needed look at this early part of the label – and also features titles on the related Red Coach label too – in a wonderful package of 25 tracks that includes "I'll Never Let You Get Away" by Universal Mind, "So Long Sweet Little Girl" by Reggie Saddler Revue, "I'm At The Breaking Point" by The Trumains, "Girl (part 1)" by Philadelphia Ambassadors, "Gotta Let Some Sunshine Into My Life" by The Exceptionals, "I'll Always Love You" by The New Cymbals, "So Fine" by The Fiestas, "The Story Of Our Love" by The Carstairs, "Love You Can't Shake It" by Reggie Saddler & The Jammers, "Nothing In The World" by The Electras, "Back On The Road Again" by Richmond International, and "Love Foundation" by Electrified Action.

VariousDuomo Sounds Ltd – Nigerian 80s Disco Music To Move Your Soul ... CD
Odion Livingstone (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
Sweet grooves from the Duomo Sounds label – a short-lived Nigerian imprint who cut some mighty funky sounds at the start of the 80s! The title here uses the word "disco", but these cuts have none of the strings and polish of the sounds you'd hear at Studio 54 – as most numbers here are stripped-down and raw, really more in a clubbier take on the more famous Nigerian funk of a few years before! However, there's also a quality here that could easily cross over to the hipper clubs on the New York underground – as most of these guys are also using the same sort of small combo funk instrumentation of the best of the indie post-disco scene – which means that some tracks resonate with the work of labels like P&P, and others echo some of the more global currents that were showing up in New York funk during the period! Most lyrics are in English, which further gives these tracks a universal appeal – and titles include "Perfect Disco Machine" and "Disco Connection" by Bindinga, "Aimiuugwia" and "Advice" by Christy Ogbah, "Xmas Eve" by Johnny O Bazz, "Look At Me" and "Shake You Body" by Mike Umoh, "You Do Good You Do For Yourself" by Godfrey Odili, "On My Mind" by Bassey Black & The Natty Messiah, and "Ariro" by Eunice Mokus Arimoku.

VariousEl Apagon – Peruvian Chicha From The Horoscopo Vaults 1978 to 1988 ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $18.99
A motherlode of classic chicha tunes, right from the source – all pulled from one of the most important Peruvian labels in the genre! The jagged grooves of chicha have gotten lots of interest in recent years – so much so, there have even been some contemporary groups who've recreated the style's very cool blend of jumpy rhythms and fuzzy guitar. Yet many chicha packages have presented the work in a slightly obscure style – without as much historical information or notes as we'd like. This set provides a great correction – and really gets to the heart of the music with a detailed story of the sound and the label – notes that are both in English and Spanish, and include some great vintage cover images too. Of course, the music's the thing that matters – and there's plenty of that here – titles that include "Tu Retrato" by Tongo Y Su Grupo Imaginacion, "Embriagame" by La Mermelada, "Amor Ideal" by Chacalon Y Su Nueva Crema, "El Chinto" by Pintura Roja, "Aborto" by Gruo Celeste, "El Apagon" by Cuarteto Universal, "Busco A Mi Padre" by Grupo Halley, and "A Mi Ley" by Los Ovnis.

✨✧ VariousJohn Morales – The M&M Mixes – NYC Underground Disco Anthems & Previously Unreleased Exclusive Salsoul Mixes ... LP
BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $24.99 27.99
An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential! 3LP version includes 9 long tracks, with a couple versions extended and longer or otherwise alternate versions than the CD mixes, including the 17+ minute A-side opener "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Parts I & II" (JM extended 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (demo version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "Move To The Groove" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Margie Joseph, "You Got (That Something)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Logg and more.

VariousLovin Mighty Fire – Nippon Funk Soul Disco 1973 to 1983 ... LP
Ace/BGP (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Disco grooves from a source you might not expect – the Japanese scene of the 70s, which was home to a surprisingly strong array of records that were perfect for the clubs! In retrospect, maybe the music's not such a surprise – given that 70s Japan was also a hotbed of electric fusion, and the kind of sharp instrumentation that provides the core to most of these tunes – wicked basslines, sweet keyboards, and funky drums that propel these tracks along in a wonderful way – even if you can't understand some of the Japanese lyrics over the top! In fact, many of these numbers are even more in the fusion or funk-inspired side of disco – less the crossover cuts with strings and big production, and more like the kind of American club tracks you might hear from Kudu Records or some of the other fusion labels. The package is proof that great sounds can be truly universal – and comes with detailed notes on the artists and scene at the time. Titles include "By By Session Band" by Lily, "Summer Champion" by Yuko Asano, "Dancin" by Junko Ohashi, "Rainbow Parade" by Masayoshi Takanaka, "Uragiri" by Mari Natuski, "Maboroshi No Hito" by Miyako Chaki, "Banana" by Kay Ishiguro, "Yashow Macashow" by Ebonee Webb, "Lovin Mighty Fire" by Nayoya Matsuko & Minako Yoshida, "Sentimental Hotel" by Rie Nkahara, and "Barato Yajuu" by Haruomi Hosono.

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of offbeat pop that Quentin Tarantino might throw into a soundtrack – but there's also a much deeper range of sounds going on than you might expect, with wonderfully clever instrumentation, and lots of surprisingly heartfelt passages in the vocals! And sure, the language might be a barrier – but there's a really universal sense of appeal to this music – a variant of 60s soul and pop, focused through a different sort of lense – and the instrumentation alone is great – with wicked guitars, Hammond, and other garagey touches! As usual with Ace, the whole thing's supported with nicely detailed notes that tell the whole story behind these wonderful lost gems (we like this one even better than the fab first volume) – and titles include "Namida No Go Go" by Emy Jackson & Blue Comets, "Koi Gurui" by Chiyo Okumura, "Tokyo No Hito" by The Peanuts, "Warui Kuse" by Kazumi Yasui, "Boy & Girl" by Akiko Wada, "Namida No Mori No Monogatari" by Akiko Nakamura, "Saike Na Machi" by Reiko Mari, "Bazazz No 1" by Kayoko Ishuu, and "Furi Furi 5" by Linda Yamamoto.

VariousTisheh O Risheh – Funk, Psychedelia, & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
Amazing sounds from the pre-Ayatollah years in Iran – an incredible blend of different global influences, coming together in the sort of sound you'd expect from one of the most progressive scenes in the Mid-East! The work here has some of the same psych elements of Turkish work from the time – but also borrows lots from other sources too – including elements of Bollywood grooves from India, heavy funk from the US, and even some of the more inventive post-colonial sounds from London and Paris! Vocals are almost never in English, but the song structures create a really universal feel to the music – a transcendent sound that's documented perfectly by the selections in this well-done set. Titles include "Asal" by Sattar, "Eshghe To" by Gita, "Dele Khoshbavar" by Shohre Soltai, "Asheghi Ham Hadi Dare" by Shahram, "Pichak" by Nooshafarin, "Tishe O Risheh" by Amir Rassaie, and "Yek Roose Taazeh" by Neli.

✨✧ Chris Dave & The DrumhedzChris Dave & The Drumhedz ... CD
Blue Note, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky drums and a whole lot more – a crackling Blue Note album from Chris Dave & The Drumhedz – maybe one of the few on the label to ever carry a parental advisory sticker! The sticker's well-placed, though – as Chris doesn't just drum, but also opens the door for a host of strong guest stars to provide plenty of lyrical content – a large lineup that includes Anderson.Paak, Bilal, Tweet, Sy Smith, Donald Rose, Krndn, Sir, Stokley Williams, Eric Roberson, Phone Coleman, Goapele, Anna Wise, Shafiq Husayn, and others – all of whom bring enough range of expression to match the energy of the Black Radio project from Robert Glasper! Like those records, this set's one that you never would have expected from Blue Note years back – but it's also a great example of the way the label's trying to find a new energy of expression in jazz – as Dave's drums work with keyboards from James Poyser, organ from Marcus Hodge, guitar from Isaiah Sharkey, and other great instrumental contributions from the likes of Keyon Harrold, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The sound of the set is as diverse as its many collaborators – and titles include "Job Well Done", "Lady Jane", Trippy Tipsy", "Universal Language", "Rocks Crying", "Spread Her Wings", "Destiny N Stereo", "Clear View", "Atlanta Texas", "Whatever", "Sensitive Granite", "Cosmic Intercourse", "Dat Feelin", and "Black Hole".

✨✧ Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison SextetIllumination! ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazingly unique little group – one that kind of stepped in the Impulse Records back door from the Coltrane galaxy, but which features some very unique aspects overall! As the cover states, the ensemble's led by bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones – and also features McCoy Tyner from Coltrane's quartet – yet the real charm of the record comes from the reed men, who include Prince Lasha on flute and clarinet, Sonny Simmons on alto and English horn, and Charles Davis on baritone sax! All players are free-thinking modernists, with ties to some of the farther reaches of 60s jazz – yet they work here in a beautifully inside mode, similar to Lasha's excellent Insight album on CBS UK – a vibe that takes all the most wonderful aspects of the Coltrane generation, but pushes them even further with some deeply personal expressions. Tracks include the seminal "Half & Half" – plus "Aborigine Dance In Scotland", "Oriental Flower", and "Nuttin Out Jones", and "Gettin On Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily one of the greatest albums ever by Hermeto Pascoal – a masterpiece of free-thinking jazz that combines all of the best elements of his work! At one level, there's an experimental approach to instrumentation that really grabs the ears – but it's also wrapped around a key sense of groove that holds everything together nicely, and which fuses the elements with a cosmically soaring approach that never lets up for the length of the entire set! Flora Purim, Airto, and Raul De Souza all guest star – and the album's got a really universal appeal that bridges US, Brazilian, and European jazz scenes of the 70s! Titles include "Mixing Pot", "Slaves Mass", "Just Listen", and "Cherry Jam". LP, Vinyl record album

Selda packs a heck of a punch on this late 70s set – a record that's still got all the wonderful elements of her previous three albums – that unique mix of folksy roots, protest themes, and nicely trippy production! Selda's holding an electrified version of the baglama on the front cover – and the instrument really sounds great on the tracks throughout – piercing with a punctuated sound that's almost like an electric sitar, but a more more straightforward – a perfect accompaniment to the rich, flowing lines of Selda's vocals. None of the tunes are in English, but there's a really universal appeal to the music – as Selda's the kind of singer that's so expressive, one hardly needs to know the lyrics to get the meaning of her tunes. Titles include "Ona Don", "Hele Yar", "Ayaginda Kundura", "Hizir Pasa", "Cendarme", "Izin Ize Benzemiyor", and "Sorsunlar Beni". CD

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most spiritual albums we've ever heard from reedman David Boykin – a beautiful batch of long, flowing tunes that have tremendous modal energy and a very cohesive feel! We've always loved Boykin, right from the start – but here he's showing an even deeper sense of spirituality and direction – a great evolution after so many years in jazz, with a strong ability to build new ideas over a very long space – and still communicate in this universal style that transcends time and place! The package is lean – just a small cardboard sleeve – but the music is mighty, and feels like some lost underground jazz classic from the 70s. Boykin plays reeds and a bit of percussion – in a quintet with some really tremendous bass from Josh Abrams – plus piano from James Baker, guitar from Alex Wing, and drums from Marcus Evans – on the tracks "Love Power Magic", "Hyperspace", "6/10/13", and "Some Slick 8 Bar Blues".

Groovie (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Miguel De Deus – an artist with more than enough funky talent to live up to the ambitious title of the album – given that he started his career working in the famous Os Brazoes combo! That group were a key part of the Tropicalia years, and mixed up a heady brew of funk and psych – and by the time of these tracks, Miguel is out on his own, working in an even more soul-drenched style that shares plenty with the New York funk scene of the time – particularly the sharp, tight modes of Fatback Band, and some of the groups recording for the De-Lite Records label! Lyrics are all in Portuguese, but the grooves are very universal – and the album's got a sort of global funk appeal that you'll only find in a rare few records from the Samba Soul generation of the 70s. Titles include "Black Soul Brother", "Cinco Anos", "Mister Funk", "Flaca Louca", "Pode Se Queimar", and "Fabrica De Papeis". LP, Vinyl record album

The groove here is nice and jazzy – arranged by Lincoln Olivetti in a style that's funky, but laidback too – a warm post-disco approach that produces lots of upbeat tunes, but which state their case in a very classy way! Junior sings in Portuguese throughout, but with phrasing that almost makes for a universal sense of soul – and there's a sunny glow to the whole thing that really goes beyond the boundary of language.

✨✧ PleasureFuture Now ... LP
Fantasy, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Pleasure – a group who were already great before, but who really seem to hit a great new level with this late 70s classic! Pleasure started out as a sweet jazz/funk combo with a great edge to their music – but by the time of this set, they'd actually gotten even tighter and better – but all without losing their depth at all! Most of the group's contemporaries just got slick and commercial – but instead, Pleasure found a way to hone their skills wonderfully – and take on some new spacey and electric touches in the process – definitely pointing towards the funky future promised in the title. The set's filled with some of the funkiest and most soulful moments of the group's career – including "Space is the Place", which has great funky drums on the intro; the mellow "Thoughts of Old Flames", a real stunner with a great moody feel; and the classic "Glide", a great dancefloor groover that still stands up well. Other tracks are all great too – and include "Universal", "Strong Love", "Nothin To It", and "Dedication To The Past". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ZerosenAsphalt ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky fusion from the Japanese scene of the 70s – served up here by one of the best-remembered acts of the time! Zerosen had a sound that answered to nobody else – not even some of the American fusion giants of the time – as the group could spin out grooves with a soulful sort of warmth, while also keeping their instrumentation as razor-sharp as possible! A record like this was a huge influence on the growing wave of other Japanese soul fusion groups of the time – but going back to the roots, few folks did it as well as Zerosen! The lineup here is a sextet – with loads of sweet keyboards, plus guitar, bass, drums, and mighty nice percussion – the last of which furthers a warmer core to the grooves. All titles are in Japanese, but the instrumental sound here is universal! CD

✨✧ VariousAfro Beat Airways Vol 2 – Return Flight To Ghana 1974 to 1983 ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from 70s Ghana – a killer collection that really lives up to all the greatness of other collections on the Analogue Africa label! There's a sharpness here right from the start – an approach to funk that's really universal, and shows why collections from a generation like this move way past the context of standard world music modes – and instead unlock a rich version of the world in which music alone can build plenty of bridges – way beyond the context of politics or national boundaries! By that, we mean that any Anglo crate-digger can find plenty to love here – wicked drums, scratchy guitar, riffing Hammond, and monstrous bass that bounces these tunes beautifully from start to finish – sewing together the grooves in a way that will have you forgetting you can't even understand most of the lyrics. And yet, as with other titles on this great label, the music is also well-situated culturally too – thanks to a hefty set of notes and great images – which will give you plenty of visual discovery while you're digging the sounds on the disc. Titles include "Wop Me A Ka" by The African Brothers, "Do Your Own Thing" by De Frank's Band, "Aja Wondo" by Uppers International, "Loose Up Yourself" by Rob, "I Beg" by Tony Sarfo & The Funky Afrobisi, "Arabo" by K Frimpong, "Say Min Sy Soh" by Pierre Antoine & Vis A Vis, "God Is Love" by Complex Soundz, and "Kana Soro" by Los Issufu & His Moslems.

✨✧ VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

Culture Power 45, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second full length compilation LP from the Chicago-centric (but not exclusive) Culture Power 45 collective – and not a simple assortment of solo or group tracks, but filled with heavy collaborative tracks by an incredible roster – including Dug Infinite, Thaione Davis, Primeridian, DJ Spinna, Vic Spencer, Infinito 2017, Radius, 9th Scientist and many more! The theme for the record is straight up "dope beats & rhymes", but with such a depth of talent on board, vocal and production complexity is part and parcel here, and all in service of driving, hard hitting tracks. Chicago hip hop history in the making! 24 tracks including "Rise Of The Ebony Gold" by Donald Mayhem, Vast Aire & Infinito 2017, "Middleman" by Iomos Marad, Thaione Davis & Profound, "The Foundation (Interlude)" by DJ Spinna, "The Sun" by Mordecai The Foul, "Think Black" by Truth Universal, ML7102, Rakaa Iriscience & Mr. Skurge, "Every Memory Pt 1" by Infinito 2017, "Crates" by Vic Spencer, "Makara (Interlude)" by Radius, "Throw Stones" by 9th Scientist and more.

✨✧ VariousLovin Mighty Fire – Nippon Funk Soul Disco 1973 to 1983 ... CD
Ace/BGP (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Disco grooves from a source you might not expect – the Japanese scene of the 70s, which was home to a surprisingly strong array of records that were perfect for the clubs! In retrospect, maybe the music's not such a surprise – given that 70s Japan was also a hotbed of electric fusion, and the kind of sharp instrumentation that provides the core to most of these tunes – wicked basslines, sweet keyboards, and funky drums that propel these tracks along in a wonderful way – even if you can't understand some of the Japanese lyrics over the top! In fact, many of these numbers are even more in the fusion or funk-inspired side of disco – less the crossover cuts with strings and big production, and more like the kind of American club tracks you might hear from Kudu Records or some of the other fusion labels. The package is proof that great sounds can be truly universal – and comes with detailed notes on the artists and scene at the time. Titles include "By By Session Band" by Lily, "Summer Champion" by Yuko Asano, "Dancin" by Junko Ohashi, "Rainbow Parade" by Masayoshi Takanaka, "Uragiri" by Mari Natuski, "Maboroshi No Hito" by Miyako Chaki, "Banana" by Kay Ishiguro, "Yashow Macashow" by Ebonee Webb, "Lovin Mighty Fire" by Nayoya Matsuko & Minako Yoshida, "Sentimental Hotel" by Rie Nkahara, and "Barato Yajuu" by Haruomi Hosono.

✨✧ Selda BagcanSelda (1979) ... LP
Turkuola/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Selda packs a heck of a punch on this late 70s set – a record that's still got all the wonderful elements of her previous three albums – that unique mix of folksy roots, protest themes, and nicely trippy production! Selda's holding an electrified version of the baglama on the front cover – and the instrument really sounds great on the tracks throughout – piercing with a punctuated sound that's almost like an electric sitar, but a more more straightforward – a perfect accompaniment to the rich, flowing lines of Selda's vocals. None of the tunes are in English, but there's a really universal appeal to the music – as Selda's the kind of singer that's so expressive, one hardly needs to know the lyrics to get the meaning of her tunes. Titles include "Ona Don", "Hele Yar", "Ayaginda Kundura", "Hizir Pasa", "Cendarme", "Izin Ize Benzemiyor", and "Sorsunlar Beni". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

✨✧ Joseph Bowie & Oliver LakeJoseph Bowie & Oliver Lake – Live At A Space 1976 ... CD
Sackville, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of duets – and the kind of spare, stripped-down improv album that the Sackville label could do so well – very much in the spirit of their classic records with Roscoe Mitchell and George Lewis! The feel here is similar to both the Mitchell and Lewis solo records – save for, of course, the duet formation – as Joseph Bowie really stretches out on trombone, and maybe gets more chance here to do his thing as an improviser in the AACM tradition than on most other records we can think of! Oliver Lake, as you might imagine, is fantastic – and works on alto, flute, and b-flat sax – interweaving with the amazing sounds that come from Joseph's trombone. Titles include "Zaki", "Orange Butterflies", "Universal Justice", and "A Space Rontoto". CD

✨✧ GomorrhaI Turned To See Whose Voice It Was ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the first albums on the legendary Brain label – and a record that's often cited as one of the founding forces of the Krautrock sound in the 70s! By the time of this album, Gomorrha are a very well-oiled group – with requisite roots in beat and prog modes, but a sound that's really coming into its own, with a hard rock confidence that few of their contemporaries might be able to match! In fact, the whole thing might be one of the hardest rockers on Brain from the time – and that's saying a lot, given the competition – still with some long-jamming instrumental moments, but really brought into sharp focus by the fantastic lead vocals of Peter Otten! Otten's got a quality that could have made him a bigger star – maybe if he was working on the UK scene – and his English language vocals really help give the whole record a universal appeal, and a non-highbrow appeal that could easily grab any of your friends who've always been standoffish about the world of 70s German rock. Titles include "Dead Life", "Titish Child", "Dance On A Volcano", "Opening Of The Sealed Book", and "I Try To Change This World". Produced by Conny Plank, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the most righteous and furiously funky Afro Soul since Fela Kuti's prime – and it's beyond appropriate for such a committed, perfect personification of a classic sound via a modern player come from Fela's own son Seun! As strident as Seun's approach is, much like his father at his best, the call for revolution is as personal and soulful as it is political – this is a universal that's as riveting as you'd hope. Joined by veterans of the Egypt 80 band that Fela helped form back in the day, and featuring guests as legendary as Carlos Santana – who sounds SO good in a supporting roll on an Afro Soul tune – and modern soul jazz heavy Robert Glasper, this is among the finest new albums on the Strut label in years. Includes "Last Revolutionary", "Black Times" feat Carlos Santana, "Corporate Public Control Department (CPCD)", "Kuku Kee Me", "Bad Man Lighter (BML)", "African Dreams", "Struggle Sounds" and "Theory Of Goat And Yam".

A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record – and their sharp edges are warmed up by female backing vocals which seem almost to act as a bridge between Marley's lead, and the very enthusiastic spirit of the crowd! The whole thing's great – and titles include totally burning versions of "Trenchtown Rock", "Burnin & Lootin", "Them Belly Full", "Lively Up Yourself", "No Woman, No Cry", "I Shot The Sheriff", and "Get Up Stand Up". Fantastic 2CD version – with 12 unreleased tracks, and 2 more presented here in unreleased full length versions! CD

A Madrid group who really live up to their name – with a heady blend of garage-psych that's quite a change from some of the more staid Spanish rock of the time! The sound is super-raw, in a way that's almost more 1967 pre-hard rock than you'd guess from the 1970 date – and lyrics are all in English, which only furthers the universal appeal of the heavy drums and fuzzy guitars, which themselves are more than worth the price of admission! The production quality is wonderful, too – handled in a way that really brings out some sinister elements in the music – on titles that include "I Am Blind", "Every Sunday", "I'm Getting Free", "There Is A Woman", "Come Here To Dance", "I'm Being Mad", "I Want To Laugh", and "Mister Harris".

✨✧ Sarah VaughanTime In My Life ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sarah Vaughn's looking pretty groovy on the cover of this album, and she's sounding pretty groovy too – thanks to some sweet 70s backings from Ernie Wilkins! The style isn't exactly funky, but it's got some fully soulful sounds, and some great electric moments too – modes that almost feel more like some of the best Kudu Records vocal sets from the time, instead of the usual Mainstream Records groove. Sarah really fits well in this sort of setting – stretching out into groovier territory than before with the same sense of change that Ella Fitzgerald or Marlena Shaw were bringing to their music at the time. Players include Jerome Richardson on saxes, Buddy Childers on trumpet, Benny Powell on trombone, Jimmy Cobb on percussion, and Earl Palmer on drums – and titles include "Inner City Blues", "Magical Connection", "Universal Prisoner", "Tomorrow City", "That's The Way I've Always Heard It", "Imagine", "On Thinking It Over", and "If Not For You".

✨✧ VariousBless The People Everywhere – Gospel Funk Of Peacock & Songbird ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The famous Duke/Peacock label was one of the most important forces in gospel music during the 50s and early 60s – home to some of the hippest, most soul-drenched acts – especially the male vocal groups that were helping transform the genre, and pave the way for lots of soul artists to come! Yet by the time of these sides, Peacock was also picking up a lot of influence back from soul music too – using funky currents to help sell a spiritual message – all at a level that never got in the way of the vocals at all, and in face only seemed to inspire the singers with a more righteous sound overall! Once the label merged with ABC Records in the early 70s, things got even cooler and groovier – but even on the cuts before those numbers, there's a funky soul vibe that resonates throughout this collection – and makes the whole thing one of the most badass gospel sets we've ever stocked. Titles include "Where Could I Go" by Pilgrim Outlets, "Try Again" by The Loving Sisters, "Generation Gap" by Paul Owens & The Capital City Star Singers, "Something For Nothing" by Carl Bean & Universal Love, "This Is Not The First Time I've Been Last" by Inez Andrews, "Voo Doo Ism" by Spirit Of Memphis, "Bless The People Everywhere" by Liz Dargan & The Gospelettes, "What's Wrong With People Today" by The Sensational Williams Brothers, "Games People Play" by The Salem Travelers, "Living A Saved Life Now" by Josh Albert Hailey, and "Crying Won't Help" by Pilgrim Jubilees.

✨✧ VariousDuomo Sounds Ltd – Nigerian 80s Disco Music To Move Your Soul ... LP
Odion Livingstone (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet grooves from the Duomo Sounds label – a short-lived Nigerian imprint who cut some mighty funky sounds at the start of the 80s! The title here uses the word "disco", but these cuts have none of the strings and polish of the sounds you'd hear at Studio 54 – as most numbers here are stripped-down and raw, really more in a clubbier take on the more famous Nigerian funk of a few years before! However, there's also a quality here that could easily cross over to the hipper clubs on the New York underground – as most of these guys are also using the same sort of small combo funk instrumentation of the best of the indie post-disco scene – which means that some tracks resonate with the work of labels like P&P, and others echo some of the more global currents that were showing up in New York funk during the period! Most lyrics are in English, which further gives these tracks a universal appeal – and titles include "Perfect Disco Machine" and "Disco Connection" by Bindinga, "Aimiuugwia" and "Advice" by Christy Ogbah, "Bazz Xmas Eve" by Johnny O, "Look At Me" and "Shake You Body" by Mike Umoh, "You Do Good You Do For Yourself" by Godfrey Odili, "On My Mind" by Bassey Black & The Natty Messiah, and "Ariro" by Eunice Mokus Arimoku.

Great 70s work from one of the most inventive talents on the vibes – the mighty Walt Dickerson! Like some of his other sessions from the time, this album has a beautiful open feel – very sparse and free-ish, but never jumping off the deep end too far into the new thing. There are 2 side-long tracks by the trio, which includes bassist Lyle Atkinson and drummer Andrew Cyrille – and titles include "Universal Peace" and "Chant of Peace", both of which have a wonderful spiritual searching quality throughout! CD also features the bonus track "Warm Up". CD
