Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
There's few folks we'd trust as much as Dimitri From Paris with the Salsoul Records legacy – because while the DJ wasn't around back when these tunes were released, his own music in recent years has done a great job of turning people on to the sound of classic club! So here, the best of both ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
A long-overdue second volume of the Soul From Jamdown series – issued 15 years after the first one, and maybe even more incredible overall! As before, the focus here is on Jamaican music that draws very direct inspiration from American soul – sometimes as cover versions of famous ... CD
Trax/Harmless (UK), Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 16CDs
Easily the greatest collection we've ever seen dedicated to the Chicago house gems of Trax Records – a massive 16CD, 222 track collection that features the complete A and B-sides of the first 75 singles on the label – all remastered here with better sound than ever before! The set's ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Disco Spectrum series of compilations – a run of records that first burst forth at the end of the 90s, and showed the world that there was a huge amount of underground music to discover from the mainstream disco years! Disco Spectrum cuts aren't the ones ... CD
Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Classic club tracks from the legendary Salsoul Records – all given the special Danny Krivit touch! The man definitely knows his way around an edit, and really makes magic here – opening up four long tracks into almost mini-symphonies of disco! Titles include "My Love Is Free ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD
The 12" single was born in the 70s, and it instantly came of age in the disco generation – thanks to help from the sorts of wonderful grooves features in this set! The package is way more than just a batch of hit disco singles – as the range of material is nicely wide, and mixes ... CD
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
Crimson (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 CDs
A host of soul tracks, and a few pop tracks too – all taken to the next level, in the best 80s 12" remix mode! This set's a great entry in this well-priced, overstuffed series – full of lost mixes from those great days with an LP-sized single offered up plenty of room for extended ... CD
Safe Trip (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP
A much-needed look at this sometimes-missed chapter in Italian music – a moment when the Italo Club sound of the 80s had transformed into a scene that gave us some of the cleanest, leanest house music of the time! Earlier Italian imports had a big impact on the birth of house music in ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Playback, 1975. New Copy
Way more funk than disco – and a set that really shows the grittier groove that was going down in the clubs in the years before Studio 54! Think of this one more as in the mode of funky 45s from the mid 70s – as the album's a compilation of groups we've mostly never heard of – ... CD
De-Lite/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy
A really rare side of the legendary De-Lite Records – served up here in a range of obscure 45s before the company exploded into bigger fame with the success of Kool & The Gang! The work here puts De-Lite right on the same level as important indies on the east coast at the turn of the 70s ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Stones Throw does it again – with a massive batch of older funk rarities that tops most of the rest on the market! Cold Heat is a follow-up to the label's smoking Funky 16 Corners set – and like that one, it's overflowing with great bits that have barely (or never) been heard by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
FTG, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3CD
A huge amount of great work from the FTG label – one of the most trustworthy soul reissues on the CD market! FTG has reissued lots of 70s and 80s classics over the past decade or so, often with lots of bonus tracks – a fair bit of which are included here, as many selections are remixes ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD
A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful ... CD
Deep Jazz Trip
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A super cool set in the Mood Mosaic series – and plentifully funky, soulful and jazzy, too! Like our other favorite volumes, this one covers a lot of stylistic territory, but it ultimately feels a little more coherent from track-to-track than the last couple sets, and does so without ... LP, Vinyl record album
Detour (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fantastic collection of funky mod and psych tracks from the great Rob Bailey – the man who's steered us through a handful of other wonderful compilations over the years, and won our undying respect in the process! Rob's choices are quite far from the obvious – and are made up from a ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy
The set's billed as "the perfect soundtrack to chill on the beach", but it's way more than that – and besides, when we always used to go to the beach, all the radios were always blaring classic rock or mainstream pop – and this collection is way way deeper than that! Guts ... CD
FTG, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3CD
A triple-header of greatness from the Funkytown Grooves label – a well-priced set that really shows off the label's commitment to classic funk and soul! The set brings together a blend of album tracks and rare mixes – some of the best titles from the FTG reissue series of the past few ... CD
Demon (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
They definitely got the title right on this one – as the set's overflowing with the kind of classic club tracks that not only broke big in the disco generation of the 70s, but which have also gone on to become the sorts of songs that were real touchstones for the period! Some of these tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
