South Funk Boulevard Band

Allison & The South Funk Boulevard Band
Crazy Cajun/Superfly (Japan), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
One of the rarest albums issued on the Crazy Cajun label – and a set that definitely doesn't have any cajun in the music at all!

The back cover of this one says "This Album Should Be Titled MONSTER" – and for once, the back cover is right! The album's the only one we've ever seen by the super-dope LA guitarist Cal Green – a wonderful talent with a hard-edge approach to the strings, one that's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bear Family (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 2CDs
An essential look at one of the less-exposed sides of Krautrock during the early 70s – not the bigger-name progressive rock acts from the West German scene, who often got a fair bit of global exposure – but the much more obscure groups who were working behind the Iron Curtain in East ... CD
Strawberry (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
A hell of a house party – one that's overflowing with rare American soul from the 60s, and which also includes some surprising bits from the British scene as well! This isn't any sort of Big Chill package of overplayed hits – as the UK scene of the 60s really knew how to pick and ... CD

Blue Note, 1957. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
John Coltrane's classic – and only – recording as a leader for Blue Note! The album's no throwaway date, though – as it stands strongly with both Coltrane's other label work of the time, and with the best of the late 50s Blue Note scene – a time when the label was really ... LP, Vinyl record album
