Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2017. New Copy

Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The deepest of the deep from the American scene at the start of the 70s – groups so hip they weren't quite soul, weren't quite rock – and instead kind of a funky hybrid of both! After opening our ears to countless underground sounds from around the globe, the Now Again label turn back ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of ... CD

LP, Vinyl record album
We Got The Jazz
P-Vine (Japan), 2017. New Copy
A set that's mostly hip hop, with lots of jazzy instrumentation – but a package that also includes some great jazz tracks too – which allows it to effortlessly draw a line back and forth between older nuggets and the best of the contemporary underground! There's a crisp, hip vibe to ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2015. New Copy
The title more than gives this one away – and the album's a great exploration of that growing global underground who've turned back towards the 70s, to re-embrace and re-invent the smooth contemporary sound of the decade! You might know a few names on here from the Dusty Groove racks – ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great look at the farther reaches of AOR during the glory days of the genre – not the oft-played hits that still seem to clutter the radio airwaves all these many decades later – but instead a big batch of underground tracks that serve up all the best modes of the style, but in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
