VariousNew Orleans Funk 4 – Voodoo Fire In New Orleans 1951 to 1975 (with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
One of the hippest collections of New Orleans soul we've ever heard – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that comes on with a sock-solid groove that even beats the previous entries in this series! In fact, since this is the fourth from Soul Jazz, the label's done an even deeper job of digging – really finding unusual cuts that aren't nearly as reissued as some of the bigger NOLA classics – and which represent a commitment to funk that stretches from the R&B years of the 50s, all the way up to the 70s! Most of the cuts are from the late 60s, and really show the Crescent City scene working hard to come up with some of the newest, freshest sounds of the time – music cut in the shadows of The Meters and Allen Toussaint, but every bit as powerful as their classic work. Titles include "You Make A New Man Out Of Me" by Johnny Adams, "Let The Groove Move You" by Gus The Groove Lewis, "The Monkey" by Dave Bartholomew, "Live It Up" by James K-Nine, "Here I Come" by Lou Johnson Frisco, "Junco Partner" by James Waynes, "No Competition" by Norma Jean, "I'm A Carpenter (part 1)" by David Robinson, "Pop Popcorn Children" by Eldridge Holmes, "Y'Er Comes The Funky Man" by Bob French's Storyville Jazz Band, "All I Want Is You" by Zilla Mayes, "Stay" by Chuck Colbert & Viewpoint, and "Play Me A Cornbread Song" by Joe Haywood.

El RegoEl Rego ... CD
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

Mary Afi UsuahEkpenyong Abasi ... LP
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Some of the coolest, grooviest work we've ever heard from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – recorded by an artist who was heading a children's program at the time! Make no mistake, though – this is no kiddie music, but instead a wonderfully rich, vibrant collection of material – as Mary Afi Usuah is a singer with a tremendous range – an artist who spent many years on the European scene, where she even sung a bit of opera – back home here working in some of the most interesting rhythms of the period! Backings are by the very cool SES Cultural Centre Band, who've got a lean, open vibe – able to slide into more familiar Afro Funk modes when needed, but also really ready to lay back and get a bit earthy too – so that the instrumentation takes on these moody, echoey elements that really work well with Mary's vocals. The singer may not have been one of the biggest names on the Lagos scene at the time, but she's certainly one of the most striking – on titles that include "Call Me Your Lover", "Ebre Mbre", "Mma Ama Mbo", "Ima Mma Uyem", and "From Me To You".

✨✧ Tony GreyTime Factor/You Are The One ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great Afro disco groove from Tony Grey – a cut that's got plenty of New York club touches in the mix, and a cool moogy part on the intro that feels like the synth on "Ring My Bell"! Tony's vocals are a lot more soulful, though – and this cut's way more complicated than that disco hit – and boasts this very cool sci-fi bassy breakdown in the middle! "You Are The One" has a similar mix of Afro and disco – complete with great horn parts that dip and turn sharply over snapping beats with some cool moogy flourishes! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Eno LouisMove/Hot Love ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
"Move" is an Afro Funk killer – but unlike anything else you might have heard! The cut's got these riffing guitars that are familiar for the scene, but captured with the sharpness of some South Bronx street jam – with Eno doing these English lyrics that are spoken more than sung – almost a cross between Afro Funk and early Sugar Hill Records! "Hot Love" is more of a club cut overall, but still mighty nice – with Louis doing a sexy lead vocal over the top! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Very cool package – with a poster attached to the sleeve!)

Stelvio CiprianiOrgasmo Nero (Sex & Black Magic/Voodoo Baby/Black Orgasm) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $21.99
A sweet sexy jungle soundtrack – issued for a film that appeared with many different erotic titles – but only this one great set of grooves from Stelvio Cipriani! Given the island setting of the narrative, there's a good amount of acoustic percussion in the mix – congas and other instruments used in ways that really work nicely with the keyboards and guitar – at a level that often comes off with a sort of sweet exotica funk approach! The style is almost a mix of Stelvio's usual groove with the 70s experiments of Mandigo – with a vibe that's completely sublime all the way through, and every bit as arresting as the image on the cover. And as usual with Cipriani, the mellow cuts are as great as the funky ones – a perfect and careful use of the best electric elements, all without ever going too far over the top – or ever sounding too clunky or commercial. CD features 28 tracks in all, and some great notes too! CD

VariousBack On The Street Again – Australian Funk, Soul, & Psych (Mostly) From The Festival Vaults ... LP
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare funk and soul from the Australian scene of the 70s – and a collection that goes way past some of the more familiar ground covered by other compilations! There have been a few key looks at the Aussie scene over the years – all of them really revelatory assemblages of funky cuts that never got much circulation outside of the island nation – and which point to a surprisingly huge legacy of great sounds in the 60s and 70s – a time when Australia was riding high on new national growth and cultural pride! This set digs even deeper than those – and dips into a variety of genres, even some great funky rock – and pulls together cuts from the Festival label archive, plus a few other sources – really mixing in some gems we never would have heard otherwise, alongside a few bigger names from the scene. Titles include "Funky Max" by Johnny Rocco Band, "City Sounds" by Daly Wilson Big Band, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "Feel Awright" by The Id, "Superstition" by Ray White Revival, "Africa" by Festival Studio 24 Orchestra, "Weird & Wonderful" by Brute Force & His Drum Band, "The Rat Suite" by Blackfeather, "Sea That Swells" by Tamam Shud, "Odyssey" by Khavas Jute, "The Wrong Time" and "Indian Rope Man" by McPhee, "Painted Ego" by Count Copernicus & The Cosmic Fire, "Vehicle" by Al Style, "Be There In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Oz Bump" by Hot Source, "Do The Uptight" by Ross D Wyllie, "Back On The Street Again" by Billy Thorpe, and "A Day In The Life" and "Hair" by John Sangster.

Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool (180 gram pressing) ... LP
DiscReet/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DJ CamBest Of DJ Cam (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Inflamable (France), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We love the music of DJ Cam – as he's one of the few French talents from the 90s who didn't try to just copy the modes of American hip hop – and instead, took it into a fresh funk field of his own! As you'll hear on these tracks, Cam is definitely inspired by hip hop – but over the years, he also tries out lots of new modes as well – with some especially strong influences from soul, and even some of the fuller styles of French music from years past! Titles include "California Dreamin", "Inner Visions", "Dieu Recoonnaitra Les Siens", "Summer In Paris", "So What (part 2)", "Love Junkee (J Dilla rmx)", "Juliet (DJ Cam rmx)", "Swim", "Broadcasting Live", "Underground Vibes", and "Voodoo Child (DJ Premier rmx)".

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, 1975. Used ... $5.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for the migration of the cosmic jazz sound onto the dancefloor – a tune that's as funky as it is righteous – but other cuts on the album slow down the pace a bit too, and show off the mellower, more introspectively spiritual side that's always made Lonnie way more than just a funky jazz artist. Easily the best place to start in the all-great Lonnie Liston Smith catalog – and featuring tracks that include "Expansions", "Summer Days", "Desert Nights", "Shadows", "My Love", "Peace", and "Voodoo Woman". CD
