Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic funk from the Belgian scene of the 70s – a really mad mix of sounds and styles, and a really revelatory set overall! Few people might use the words "Belgium" and "funk" in the same sentence – but that may well change after this sweet set gets a few spins ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cali Tex, 1970s. New Copy
CD...$5.99 17.98
Pretty darn cool stuff – and some of the rarest funky numbers you'll ever find! This great little set was put together by funky collector Josh Davis – and it's a totally fresh batch of tracks that digs through rare recordings that were cut by obscure groups working in colleges or high ... CD
Universal (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
A very cool look at a lost legacy in French music – disco and club grooves from the late 70s and early 80s, most of which never got any play at all on our side of the Atlantic! The tracks here mostly go way beyond the obvious choices of Cerrone and Kongas, and often have a playful approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD
A really fantastic little collection – a look at the way that sounds from the Caribbean changed over nicely when brought to the UK scene – where immigrants from former British territory really helped to transform the sound of London in the 70s! The music here is served up in a range of ... CD
Wagram (France), Mid 70s. New Copy
A hefty collection of funky nuggets – all key 70s tracks, with a nice focus on the sort of sharp-edge material that's gone on to form the basis of famous samples over the years! Yet all these tracks are more than great enough on their own – not obscure works from the farther reaches of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Note/Hyperjazz (Italy), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A deep dive into the catalog of the legendary Soul Note label – the Italian imprint that became a huge host to American jazz musicians in the late 70s onwards – a company that helped to evolve both spiritual and loft jazz modes, and continue the legacy of free-thinking expression that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$7.99 11.99
Groovy groovy soundtrack music from Italy – mostly pulled from sources that we've not had before on reissues, and mixed together nicely with a good variety of styles. The set has fuzzy guitar, electric sitar, bubbly organ, riffing sax, and the occasional swinging vocal passage – and ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A set that's even better than you'd guess from the title – as the music here is from a really nice range of sources, and has a spirit that's very much its own – neither in the range of more familiar Italo Disco, nor some of the chintzier pop tracks of the time! Instead, the project's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Favorite (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Fantastic jazzy funk from around the globe – a whole host of tracks that draw heavily on the American electric modes of the early 70s, then take them into all sorts of new and creative directions on their own!

180g (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy
A really fantastic entry in this really great series – one that shows just how strongly the spirit of invention continued in the world of Japanese music as it moved into the 80s! As with previous volumes, the work here is a unique hybrid of influences from American and Japanese sources ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mood Mosaic (Italy), 1970s. New Copy
One of the coolest entries we've ever seen in this excellent series – a package that's heavy on rare funk tracks from overseas, most of which we're never likely to find on vinyl in our neck of the woods! There's a slinky, sexy groove to most of these cuts – very 70s, with plenty of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fantastic collection of rare funky nuggets – put together by the folks at the Numero Group, and an album that's billed as "the only funk album you'll ever need"! That might be a big claim, but the record is pretty darn great – a set that features a few older underground ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mainstream/We Want Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
A wicked dip into the catalog of 70s powerhouse Mainstream Records – a set that brings together the funkiest tracks from the label – not just from their electric jazz albums, but also their more obscure funky 45s from the same time too! The package is a strong blend of jazz, funk, and ... CD
Mood Mosaic (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Don't be put off by the cheesy look of the cover – as the set's filled with cool, classy funk rarities – a really wonderful selection of tracks that features plenty of gems that work perfectly here together! The long-running Mood Mosaic series has been at it longer than most – ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy
What a subtitle – "The Cult Tracks Given Birth By The Superheroes Of The 70s"! And if you're thinking that the tracks are by Wolverine, Firestorm, and other 70s comic book creations, that's not the case – as the superheroes here are funky ones! More specifically, the tracks ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A wonderfully groovy set – every bit as great as you might guess from the title and the cover – and the very first installment in the now-legendary Mood Mosaic series! The set's one of the few to bring together tunes from the groovier side of the spectrum at the end of the 60s – ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1998. New Copy
6th volume in the great Mood Mosaic series, with a theme that focuses on swingin' female jazz singers – mostly of the light breezy Euro variety. There's loads of rare cuts on here by Sheila Jordan, France Gall, Alice Babs, Monika Linges, Flora Purim, Annete Peacock, and April Aloisio – ... CD

Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A dancing soul party, but one that's got a nice sort of focus too – not a completely random collection of cuts, but one that features a fair bit of very early work from Van McCoy, and some great group soul too! Unlike a DJ set in the clubs, the collection's got no problem with mixing ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Not the Hawaiian music you'd know from your grandfather's exotica collection, or from the time your aunt went to see Don Ho – and instead a package of very cool, very groovy cuts that lean heavily on the soul side of the spectrum – all done in collaboration with the folks at Aloha Got ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the ... CD
Perpetual, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A really well-done collection – filled with enough funky gems to grab the ears of any sample-conscious listener, but also packing plenty of unusual numbers too – including a few Latin tracks that fit in perfectly with the spirit of the sound! A number of these cuts have definitely been ... CD

CD...$9.99 18.99
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those ... CD

Enja/BBE (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 4LP
A deep dive into the music of Enja Records – a label that really needs no introduction to most longtime fans of jazz, as Enja's been serving up some of the best sounds from the European scene for the past 50 years – as well as providing some really amazing records by American artists ... LP, Vinyl record album
180g (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

... LP, Vinyl record album
Cosmic Disco Machine (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic funky cuts from the glory days of the French soundtrack scene – a moment when some of that nation's film composers were really tripping out, but in a way that's very different than American or Italian soundtrack talents of the time! If you know the funky moments in the work of ... LP, Vinyl record album

The cover's a bit cheesy, but the grooves are great – very much what we've come to expect from this long-running series that always serves up some great funky tracks!

Motown (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch Gatefold

The package is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great entry in the series that first put the Numero label on the map – their incredible Eccentric Soul exploration of very local scenes!

Soul Brother (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
A great little collection – and one that definitely gets the "soulful" in the title right! The cuts here are from some of our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s – tracks that move, but in a nicely laidback way – with funky rhythms moving slower than on club cuts, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Svart (Finland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
