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

Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy
A 70s soul collection beyond compare – one that features a huge amount of tracks that we might have missed otherwise, and which go way beyond the hits into a space of their own! The music here isn't disco, isn't pop, and isn't ballad soul – and instead, represents the always-creative, ... CD
Detour (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Tremendous tracks from this always-great series – one that's been going strong for almost a decade, and just keeps getting better and better with each new volume! DJ Rob Bailey started out as a London spinner with a great ear for classic mod – and over the years, he's developed an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Discotheque (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A funky mod party throughout – and a wicked package of grooves we would have never tracked down on our own! The folks at London's New Untouchables have selected 18 of their favorite fuzzed-out 60s numbers for this set – a genre-busting batch of tracks that swings together mod jazz, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Circle (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Funky mod grooves galore – and a sublime second set in the Le Beat Bespoke series! This one is even better than the first – and seems to dig even deeper in the crates to come up with a range of rare singles from around the globe – all dripping with heavy drums, fuzzy guitars, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rambling (Japan), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
Sweet bossa nova from the European scene – almost all of it from the kinds of late 60s Italian soundtracks that took the best elements of the style from Brazil, then expanded it into a whole new groovy style of its own! The music here certainly has lots of the snapping rhythms and breezy ... CD
Express/Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold
Sweet funky fusion from the Japanese scene at the end of the 70s – that magic moment when Japanese jazz musicians seemed to get the groove even better than most of the American players of the period – coming across with a soulful sound that's quite different than their work of a few ... CD
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
Mellow fusion, jazzy soul, and lots of warm 70s pop currents – all coming together in a great third installment of this wonderful series! The collection goes way past the familiar "yachtpop" material you might expect from the title – less top 40 AOR than the kind of more ... 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
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Raw funky Philly soul – all recorded at the tiny Virtue Recording Studios – a small place to work, but a great one too! Virtue has maybe more of a deep soul approach than you're used to hearing from Philly – no soaring strings, polished production, or crossover dance modes – ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD
Funk from Belgium? Believe it or not, stranger things have happened – and we can promise that if you played these tracks back to back with more familiar grooves from other 70s sources, you'd quickly find that these Belgian grooves are right up there with the best of the bunch! The set's ... CD
We Want Sounds (France), Early 70s. New Copy
That's reedman Hadley Caliman on the front cover – looking mighty righteous, and really setting the vibe for the music on the collection – a far-reaching, deeply-soulful batch of tracks from the Mainstream Records label in the early 70s! Mainstream's maybe not as well-remembered as a ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
The real sound of the old school, and the best beats from the streets – the kind of early underground hip hop tracks that still sound wonderful after all these years! These are tracks from the earliest years of the style – when funk was as much a part of the music as lyrics – and ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

Believe it or not, stranger things have happened – and we can promise that if you played these tracks back to back with more familiar grooves from other 70s sources, you'd quickly find that these Belgian grooves are right up there with the best of the bunch!

Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
A record with a sound that's much richer than you'd expect from the cover – not the spare, stark image on the front – but a wonderfully deep array of sounds from the more spiritual side of the jazz spectrum! As with previous volumes, the collection of tunes here is amazing – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
That couple on the cover's looking pretty darn groovy – and the sound of the record is definitely one to match – the sound of postwar Britain starting to let its hair down, and open up to a lot of new musical ideas! Like the previous volumes of Britxotica, this collection offers up ... LP, Vinyl record album
