Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant funky soundtrack – with great work from a number of different artists! The Buddah soul stable came out in full force for this soundtrack, including Harvy Fuqua, The New Birth, Barbara Mason, and Horace Ott – as well as the little known group Badder Than Evil! They play on the great instrumental track "Hot Wheels", which is the chase theme in the film, and a great sample track! Also includes "Super Shine #9", sung by Sister Goose & the Ducklings, which is a very groovy, goofy, soulful number – plus the tracks "Child Of Tomorrow", "Harlem Dreams", "Child Of Tomorrow", and "Come On & Dream Some Paradise".

Raheem DeVaughnLove & War Masterpeace ... CD CD format
Jive, 2010. Used ... $4.99
Maybe the greatest set so far from Raheem DeVaughn – an artist we loved way back in his early mixtape days, and one who's grown tremendously in recent years! The set's filled with wisdom and knowledge – and comes across with this deeply soulful feel that's rooted in the righteous era of Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott-Heron, but which also bumps along with plenty of contemporary touches too – thanks to some sweet production help from Kenny Dope on some of the album's best cuts! The mix of Kenny and Raheem is a dream come true – and Cornel West drops in a few spoken bits to round out the album's sense of purpose too – alongside other guests who include Jill Scott, Bilal, Malik Yusef, Wale, and Ludacris. Cuts include "Bedroom", "My Wife", "Bulletproof", "Nobody Wins A War", "Fragile", "Mr Right", "I Don't Care", and "Black & Blue". CD

Lyrical combat from Baltimore duo Dirt Platoon – with gritty production by producer Kyo Itachi! The vocals are raw and uncompromising and Itachi wisely lays down hard-hitting beats and spare bits of piano strings and other fairly delicate textures –which are fine foil for the lyrical grit. Includes "Animal S**t", "Dirty Work" with Ruste Juxx, "Old Time Sake", "Brainstorming", "Point Of Attack" with Dro Pesci, Skanks, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Milez Grimez, "Wage War", "Dose Of Reality", "The Closer" and more.

Holy Modal RoundersIndian War Whoop ... LP LP format
ESP, 1967. Near Mint- ... $43.99
Some of the most tripped-out music ever from The Holy Modal Rounders – and that's saying a lot, given the nature of the group! This unique early album on ESP features two side-long tracks – both of which are mini-suites of sort, and filled with odd sounds, weird themes, and a strange mixture of hippie instrumentation and sci-fi experimentation! The group for the record is a quartet – with the core combo of Peter Stampfel on violin and vocals and Steve Weber on guitar, augmented by playwright Sam Shephard on drums and Lee Crabtree on piano and organ – plus extra vocals from the trio of Antonia, Barbara, & Wendy. The music is in the best free-thinking style of other rock on the ESP label in the 60s – and titles include "Jimmy & Crash Survey The Universe" and "The Second-Hand Watch". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

MCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A nice later effort from War – one that really has them grooving in a great way! If you never got past the first two tracks on side one – "Galaxy" and "Baby Face" – you might imagine this album's just a middle of the road attempt to move in on the disco sound that was becoming popular. But as you delve into the album further, you can hear their trademark Latin tinged rhythms and breezy, jazzy soloing on harmonica and guitar. Mellow California Latin soul, including the great extended instrumental "The Seven Tin Soldiers", plus "Hey Senorita" and "Sweet Fighting Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
War's first LP without Eric Burdon – and although not the mega-hit that following LPs would be, still a pretty great blend of styles that firmly shows the group's unique vision. War are hitting hard with that soulful LA funk sound – a blend of funky jazz, Latin, and other elements – and in a way, this one's kind of a treat if you dig the group, because the material's a lot less familiar than some of their later albums. Titles include "Sun Oh Son", "Lonely Feelin", "Back Home", "War Drums", and "Vibeka". LP, Vinyl record album

WarWorld Is A Ghetto ... LP LP format
United Artists, 1972. Very Good- ... $7.99
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

Pharoahe MonchPTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) ... LP LP format
WAR, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... $13.99
Master MC Pharoahe Monch returns! Post Traumatic Stress Disorder appeared just few short years since his previous full length effort, which is a huge boon for we fans of rhyme centric rap. It's damn good to have this cat in the game. PTSD has a fairly loose dystopian sci fi theme/story that's a sometimes metaphorical, some times explicitly laid out struggle for truth and honestly in crooked music business and difficult world in general – like the best kinda/sorta concept albums, the story doesn't get overbearing at any point, and Pharaohe's pen remains as sharp as ever, and his flow as excellent as ever. This one doesn't have the manic, bugged out energy of Internal Affairs, but that's not a knock – we take the more measured, smartly paced approach as a sign of maturity, and an eagarness to avoid repeating himself. Good stuff! Includes "The Recollection Facility", "Losing My Mind", "Heroin Addict", "Damage", "Bad MF", "Rapid Eye Movement" with Black Thought, "Broken Again", "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder", "DREAM" with Talib Kwelie, "Scream", "Eht Dn Arg Noisulli" with Stepkids and more.

AntibalasTalkatif ... CD CD format
Ninja Tune, 2002. Used ... $8.99
Stunning Afro Funk from this incredible combo – as great as anything from the 70s, and maybe even better! The album's the second full length release from New York's Antibalas Liberation Orchestra – and like the first, it's an insanely wonderful batch of funk tunes that follows fiercely in the Fela tradition. Choppy guitars meet with chunky rhythms, riffing keyboards, staccato horns, and a deep commitment to rootsy production – one that keeps the sound of the record firmly in the classic mode, without any fancy remix touches of house music beats. The album's amazing – the sort you could easily pass off as a rare gem you find digging through the crates in Lagos – but it's even better than that, because these guys are young, alive, and headed to your town soon for a concert! Titles include "Talkatif", "Hypocrite", "World Without Fear", "War Is A Crime", and "NESTA 75". CD

New Black SabbathParanoid ... LP LP format
Warner, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
Quite possibly the greatest moment of genius ever from Black Sabbath – and a genre-changing record that influenced generations! The group are at their lean, raw best here – free from any cliches at all, and working in an incredibly heady brew of fuzzy guitar, romping bass, and dark drums – all topped by the instantly recognizeable screech of the young Ozzy Osborne! Guitarist Tony Iommi virtually redefines rock use of the guitar with this record alone – and the Oz follows suit with some of the creepiest vocals set to record ever. Titles include the classics "Paranoid" and "Iron Man", plus "War Pigs", "Planet Caravan", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Rat Salad". LP, Vinyl record album

It took far too long for Cappadonna's Pillage LP to drop – finally hitting the streets in the late 90s – and serving as one of the best Wu related efforts of the last couple years of the decade! The hazy, ominous and pulp cinema Wu sound is trotted out with continued relevance and strong rhymes from Cappa – with the title track, "Slang Editorial", "Run", "Blood On Blood War", "Supa Ninjaz", "Dart Throwing", "Young Hearts", MCF, "South Of The Border", "Everything Is Everything", "Black Boy" and more. 16 tracks in all, with a majority of the production handled by RZA with his Wu Elements.

Jimmy CastorIt's Just Begun/Phase Two ... CD CD format
RCA/Robinsongs (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of classics from the Jimmy Castor Bunch – back to back on a single CD! It's Just Begun is wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! Phase Two is probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record! The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! CD

New Chuck CisselIf I Had A Chance ... LP LP format
Arista, 1982. Very Good- ... $0.99
Smooth-stepping soul from singer Chuck Cissel – a lean-voiced talent whose approach was perfect for the 80s adult soul generation! The album's got a great batch of mellow ballads that drift along in a quiet storm sort of mode – and Chuck's slightly high vocal range works well to bring a sense of humanity to these numbers, without hitting male soul modes that are too cliched. The album's got a few groovers too, but the real strength is the mellow cuts, which Cissel delivers with ease. Tracks include the minor hit "If I Had the Chance", a duet with Marva King – plus "All I See Is You", "Love is Missing From Our Lives", "Night Miracles", "Possessed", and "Understanding Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime early work from Bonnie Dobson – really spare, really beautiful tracks recorded years before Dobson became more of a pop phenomenon – with a classic sound that's instantly mesmerizing, right from the very first note! The record just features Bonnie's guitar and her amazing voice – recorded perfectly by Rudy Van Gelder, who did as great of a job here as with any of his jazz sessions for Prestige Records – maybe even more so, given the intimacy of the record.

Sanctuary (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A key year in the music of Donovan – served up here in massive amount of tracks that capture the singer right before his great leap to fame! The Donovan here is firmly wed to the sound and style of Bob Dylan – as chronicled famously in the film Don't Look Back – but that's hardly an issue at all, as the singer is still completely stunning, both as a lyricist and singer – often working with just a bit of acoustic guitar for accompaniment. And while some of the important songs from these early Donovan years have gotten exposure over the years, it's really amazing to hear all the work together – and to realize that, even without topping the charts, Donovan managed to record 34 tracks during this one early year – a year that also has him really transforming his style by the end! Titles include two versions of "Catch The Wind" – one with strings – plus "To Sing For You", "Colours", "Universal Soldier", "Ballad Of A Crystal Man", "Circus Of Sour", "Summer Day Reflection Song", "Candy Man", "Belated Forgiveness Plea", "Ballad Of Geraldine", "Turquoise", "Sunny Goodge Street", and "The War Drags On".

We're huge fans of bowling alleys – from the taverns inside, which are often hidden gems – to the well-waxed lanes, which provide hours of fun – to the overall culture of the place, which can stand as an island in both the streams of time and local change!

Alex Cuervo plays all the instrumentation himself – and although keyboards and fuzzy guitar do a lot of the work, there's also some stark rhythms that really strengthen the music too – almost early 80s German modes at times, in the way the drums have this sideways sort of splash – which deepens and darkens the overall vibe of the record. All tracks are instrumental – and titles include "The Obelisk", "This Is A War Universe", "The Feral Kids", "Removing The Bandages", "The Goddamn Apocalypse", and "The Cold Spot". CD

Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
The start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". CD

New Son House/JD ShortDelta Blues ... LP LP format
Folkways, 1942/1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two generations of blues – presented together here in a classic Folkways package! Side one features Alan Lomax recordings of Son House – done on a trip to the delta in 1942, after Lomax was able to talk Son's boss into giving him the afternoon off, so they could drive to a grocery store where they could plug in the tape recorder! House sounds great here – a few years after classic vintage, but still very much in fine form – and titles include "My Black Woman", "Sun Goin Down", "I Ain't Goin To Cry No More", and "This War Will Last You For Years". Side two features work from JD Short – a contemporary of Son House on the Paramount Records scene – but recorded here in 1962 by Samuel Charters, in a laidback, stripped-down style that's very much in the older mode used by Lomax, but slightly more clear. Short lays down some great harmonica lines alongside his vocals and guitar – and titles include "So Much Wine", "Train Bring My Baby Back", "Fighting For Dear Old Uncle Sam", and "You Been Cheatin Me".

Mayfield's place here is held by the amazing Leroy Hutson – one of our favorite soul talents of the 70s, really sparkling here in the trio before moving onto his own run of classics for Curtom – with a vocal quality that's solidly soulful, and possibly even more progressively pointed than Curtis. Hutson helped co-arrange the album with Riley Hampton – and production is by Curtis Mayfield, who brings in all the right elements of fuzz and funk to really keep the group sounding hip. Titles include the classic peace song "Stop the War", plus "I Need To Belong To Someone", "Love Me", "Our Love Goes On & On", "This Love's for Real", and a cool cover of "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
