AlbertAlbert (PLP 9) ... LP
Perception, Early 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
The only LP we've ever seen by this funky rock group from the early 70s – a really tight little combo with plenty of jazzy influences, best known for their backing of James Moody on the Teachers album for Perception! The record's a great blend of styles – funky jazz, progressive rock, ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Century ExpandedConcerto For Wah Wah ... LP
Perception/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally wicked little record, and one that's exactly what it promises in the title – an extended instrumental suite based entirely around wah wah guitar! The lead instrument is used here in a relatively spacey setting, but one that's still got plenty of funky undercurrents too – some ... (Rock) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fatback BandLet's Do It Again ... LP
Perception, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A key classic from the earliest years of the Fatback Band – one of the group's funkiest albums, and part of their original trilogy for the Perception label! The groove here is mighty raw throughout – but a bit more complicated than some of their funky 45 releases – a mixture of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback BandPeople Music ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Essential reissue of one of the greatest funk albums ever! This is the great LP of hard funky cuts that perfectly sums up the Fatback style that you've heard so much about – but which you can't find on much of their late 70s albums! The whole album is filled to the brim with loads of great ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Now ... LP
Perception, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Killer work by Astrud Gilberto – very different than her Verve sides of the 60s! The album was produced by Astrud, arranged by Deodato – and has that wonderful warm full jazz feel of her classic album on CTI, but also a bit more like some of the funky work of Jorge Ben at the time ...

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieMatrix – The Perception Sessions (The Real Thing/Portrait Of Jenny/Giants) ... CD
Perception/Castle (UK), 1970/1971. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Excellent funk from Dizzy Gillespie – featuring all 3 of his albums for the legendary Perception label! The Real Thing is an amazing mix of funky jazz, cool rhythms, and some nice Latin-tinged grooves – and it's a stunning representation of the way that Dizzy kept on growing as a ...

✨✧ Dizzy GillespiePortrait of Jenny ... LP
Perception, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label! The record is similar to his other LPs from the time in that it's got a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. The whole album has a sly sweet funky sound that's part CTI/part Latin-tinged Dizzy ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... LP
Perception, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them. The bass is the main driving factor of ...

✨✧ Johnny HartmanRaindrops Keep Falling On My Head – The Perception Recordings (Today/I've Been There) ... CD
Perception/Definitive (Spain), 1972/1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although not as classic as his "classic" recordings, these two albums recorded for Perception in the early 70s prove that Johnny was capable of stretching his bag, and not just a play-it-safe interpreter of syrupy ballads. Like a lot of the jazz recordings on Perception at the time (by ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Perception, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful lost album by Shirley Horn, and unlike anything else she's ever done. Recorded in a period of obscurity, this LP features a stunning range of material, such as the cuts "Consequences of a Drug Addict Role", a haunting 10 minute mood piece on addiction, "L.A. ...

Mr Jamo (Jamo Thomas)Shake What You Brought With You (parts 1 & 2) (Perception) ... 7-inch
Perception, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Obscure Perception pressing of this excellent funky track by Jamo Thomas, also issued on SSS International. The cut takes Jamo's sock-boogaloo Chicago soul sound, and moves it into the 70s funky mode by adding a bit more punch on the horns, and darkening the whole thing with kind of a Superfly ...

Perception, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We've always been enormous fans of this LP, which features Moody backed by The Albert, a "progressive" funk/rock group.

Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible funky soundtrack – one of the best of the blacksploitation generation, and one of the rarest too! Johnny Pate did the orchestrations for this excellent lost film, and he brought the same sort of energy to it that he did with his soundtrack for Shaft In Africa. There's some ...

Perception, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Wanda Robinson was one of the first hip, black, female poets to set righteous words to funky music – and this album is one of her two classic sides for the Perception label from the early 70s.

Some of the most righteous poetry ever recorded – set to musical backings with a nice dose of funk!
