VariousNew Orleans Funk 4 – Voodoo Fire In New Orleans 1951 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
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.

✨✧ Tex Soul & The BayonetsUto Nwa/Osi Na Ngada ... 7-inch
Academy/Voodoo Funk, Mid 70s. Near Mint- (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
Breaking drums, popping organ, and fuzzy guitar – all exploding at the start of this rare funky nugget – and setting fire to the tune right from the beginning! There's a nervous, jumpy sort of energy to "Uto Nwa" – one that not only sets it apart from other Afro funk gems of the time – but which also has enough core funk to earn Tex the "soul" in his name on the cover! The flipside follows up with "Osi Na Nganda" – a tune with raw conga rhythms, bursts of freaky organ, and this loping groove that's really wonderful 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ El RegoEl Rego ... CD
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousHeed The Call – 17 Of The Choicest Maori/Polynesian Soul, Funk, & Disco Tracks ... CD
Vostock (New Zealand), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – and comes across in a way that's different than some of the more familiar Australian funk and soul of the same time – maybe more indie to that nation's major label polish – filled with the kinds of tracks that hardly need to answer to anyone in the mainstream – just the freaky folks on the dancefloor at a party! The tunes were recorded over the space of a decade, but almost all of them have a strong mid-70s vibe – pre-disco, but upbeat funk – with sharp instrumentation by musicians who'd clearly be comfortable playing other styles, but who often work here to back up a soulful singer in the lead. Titles include "A House For Sale" by Mark Williams, "You Can Dance" by Collision, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "That's The Kind Of Love I've Got For You" by The 1860 Band, "Mr Funky" by Inbetweens, "I Need Your Love" by Golden Harvest, "You Can Do It" by Tina Cross, "Disco Queen" by Mark Williams, "Don't Give Your Life Away" by The Pink Family, "There's A River" by Sonia & Skee, "Mr Music" by Ticket, "She's Knocking At My Door" by Johnny Rocco Band, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Yandall Sisters, "Total Man" by The Totals", and "Who Do We Think We're Fooling" by Larry Morris.

Moonfires (Alex Puddu)Gotta Keep It Rollin ... LP
Al Dente (France), 2018. New Copy ... $24.99
The Moonfires better keep it rolling, given that they're being chased by a giant ape on the cover – but with the mighty Alex Puddu on guitar, they can't help but take off and soar! The album's got that great commitment to classic cinematic funk styles that we've always loved in Puddu's music – but also features vocals in the lead on most numbers, which makes the tunes feel a bit mod soul numbers – mixed with a few others in a deep funk mode. There's lots of cool keyboards in the group – and titles include "Thunder Road", "Weekend Pleasure", "Woman", "Gotta Keep It Rollin", "Funky City", "Voodoo People", and "Soul On Fire" – plus a nice version of "Are You Man Enough" from Shaft In Africa.

✨✧ Mr ChopSounds From The Cave ... LP
Jazz & Milk (Germany), 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No caveman sounds here, as the grooves are all plenty contemporary – yet also filled with plenty of funky touches from the 70s! The album's got a similar feel to the breaks album on Jazz & Milk – loads of acoustic elements patched together with a solid, soulful feel – a space somewhere between deep funk and hip hop production, with some occasional leftfield touches as well! The album's a short one, but it's quite solid throughout – aggressively funky without going over the top, and with a nice sense of freshness as each new tune rolls along. Titles include "Fuel", "Monolith Voodoo Vibes", "The Red Baron", "Conduit Closing", "Brainticket", "The Caveman", and "Snob". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dudley PerkinsA Lil' Light ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A nice, moody hip hop/funk album from one of the deepest talents on the Stones Throw roster! Dudley came to underground hip hop fame as Declaime, but really stepped forward as a durable, innovative artist with the Dudley Perkins singles that have dropped thus far – and A Lil Light soundly delivers on that promise. It's all about mood – this may be the murkiest, most muddily funky thing Madlib has ever produced, with crackly, hissing beats, bass and samples. Dudley's vocals are about as far from the crooning NuSoul sound as you can get. He grooves along with an improvised feel to the lyrics, loosely scatting in both a rolling deep bass and a soulful, nearly crying falsetto. The sound falls somewhere between the denser parts of D'Angelo's Voodoo and the spacier aspects of 70s soul and funk. Totally unique and satisfying – would you expect any less of Stones Throw? Tracks include "Money", the Sun Ra-inspired "Gotta Go", "You Really Know Me?", "Washedbrainsyndrome", "Flowers", "Just Think", "Yo' Soul", "Momma", "Lil' Black Boy" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a sticker spot.)

MergeMerge ... LP
RCA, 1982. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Funky grooves merge into sweet soulful moments – on this wonderful debut from an obscure Chicago group! The music is clubby at points, but also mellows out at others – mixing bassy grooves with spacier moments that have an especially nice vibe – and which really showcase a sophisticated modern soul side of the group! And the production work features plenty of old talents from Brunswick Records – including Chicago soul giants Carl Davis, Eugene Record, and Sonny Sanders – who really put the record together with a lot of care, at a level that should have made these guys huge. A great lost set, but well worth discovering – and tracks include "Volcanic Voodoo", "Take It To The Top", "What Makes You Wanna Lie To Me", "You're My Everything", "Show Him The Way To Go", and "Worry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny Almond Music MachinePatent Pending ... LP
Deram, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stone groover from British multi-instrumentalist Johnny Almond – stepping out here on a range of instruments that includes tenor, alto, flute, organ, vibes, and mellotron! Like Almond's other session from the time, the set's got a tightly arranged groove that feels a lot like some of the best funky soundtrack work of the late 60s – an approach that has the larger band vamping in a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, while Almond soars out on expressive solos that nicely shift with the feel of each track! A few numbers take on a slightly exotic feel that we really love – using heavy percussion and a bit of effects to emphasize the groove – and a good part of the credit for the strength of the album should go to drummer Alan White, who's really cutting it up nicely here! Titles include a version of Yusef Lateef's "Before Dawn", plus the original numbers "Tales Of Junior", "Solar Level", "Voodoo Forest", "Pequeno Novo", and "To RK", a great tribute to Roland Kirk! LP, Vinyl record album
(US stereo pressing, with small initials in marker on one label. Cover has a promo sticker, light wear, and bumped corners.)

✨✧ Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some marker on front.)
