Alston (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to ...

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The best-ever collection we've ever seen to focus on the work of Linda Jones – one of our favorite female soul singers of the late 60s, but an artist who never fully hit the fame she deserved! Linda's got a hell of a voice – a sense of positive power that really stands out, right from ... CD

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy

Pashlo/Favorite (France), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A fantastic cut from the Oakland scene of the late 70s – one that's already got a pretty stretched out vibe on the main version, then really takes off on the extended cut – which features a totally great Fender Rhodes solo!

Epic/Cherry Pop, 1994. New Copy 3CD
A great one from Basia – a record that has the Polish soul singer hitting even warmer, jazzier territory than before – as her style matures nicely with help from keyboardist Danny White, who co-wrote most of the material on the set! There's a nice current here of the best UK soul of ... CD

Liberation
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy
You might remember Tony Aiken for his classic funk album Unity, from the 70s – and here, he's back again – after nearly 40 years away from the studio! The album's got a style that's a lot more reggae-influenced than before – maybe not totally a reggae record, given the other ... CD

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever!
