All City (Ireland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
What? Irish funk? We thought we knew everything – but if there's one thing we're learning to know, it's that there's still a heck of a lot of great music for us to discover! The vibe here is hipper than you might expect – mostly handled by blued-eyed soul artists, but who've clearly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tava Tava Rare (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Heavy funk from Japanese cinema – fantastic instrumental tracks that are all pulled from "pinky violence" sexploitation films at the start of the 70s! This isn't softcore porn material, as the music is often much harder-hitting overall – more like what you'd hear in crime ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, 1970s. New Copy
The Numero Group turn their radio to yet another spot on the dial – this time around posing as a 70s AOR station, but working with their usual flair for rare and unreleased tunes! Given that the musical style is one that you're used to associating with big hits, it's great to hear music like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy
Philly soul at its finest – served up here in a collection that brings together classics from the Philadelphia International label, plus some nicely overlooked cuts! Most of the music here comes from the world of Gamble & Huff – that legendary production duo who helped take soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Saint Etienne have brought us a number of wonderful compilations over the years – both in this format for Ace Records, and their work on their own great Croydon Municipal label – yet as much as we've loved all those others, we may well love this one the best – as it's a sublime ... CD
BGP (UK), New Copy 2 LPs
A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Funky soul from one of the less-discovered scenes in the south – the hotbed of small labels that were making some mighty great grooves in Atlanta during the 70s! The Peachtree city isn't nearly as well-cited as a soul music source in comparison to places like Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and even ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
Fantastic sounds from this always-great series – one that's always got an unassuming title, but which always turns us onto a great range of songs we've never heard before! As with previous volumes, the approach here is really unique – not really spiritual jazz, or righteous soul – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
The biggest volume so far in the Spiritual Jazz series from Jazzman Records – and maybe the best as well! This fantastic collection looks at the huge legacy of spiritual jazz that flowed from the Japanese scene in the postwar years – sounds that had their initial expression around the ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic funky gospel from the Jewel Records label – one of the few other companies besides Chess Records who could effortlessly mix spiritual and secular sounds! As with some of the best Chess/Checker gospel of this period, there's a groove here that feels more like mainstream soul of the ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Underground soul that goes deeper than most – a collection of some of the hippest tracks from the excellent Groove Diggers reissue series from Japan – a treasure trove of under-discovered indie soul albums from the American scene of the 70s! These tracks are funky, but aren't straight ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A much-needed look at the incredible German music scene of the 70s – a sprawling landscape of prog, fusion, electronics, and more – all put together beautifully here with the usual completeness we've come to expect from Soul Jazz! Many of the names are familiar – the sorts you've ... LP, Vinyl record album

BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP
A set that really gets at the full spectrum of the boogaloo groove – not just the Spanish Harlem sounds of the Latin Soul generation – but also the deeper roots of the style from across the USA! "Boogaloo" is a term that most folks use to refer to that New York uptown fusion ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Beautifully spiritual jazz from the post-Coltrane generation – a wealth of righteous grooves from the early 70s – brought together in one mighty collection! If you dig the work of Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, and other giants on Impulse Records, this is a great way to dig even ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A great look at an obscure indie soul label from the Cleveland scene at the end of the 60s – and a company that's definitely a cut above, given that it released some early O'Jays singles in the years before their crossover fame in the 70s – and members of that group also wrote a fair ... CD
