BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD
Rare club cuts from a few different generations – all brought together here in a really wonderful collection! The set's supposed to tip us off to the influences on the music of DJ Marky – but even if you don't care about him at all, you'll find plenty here to love – as the ... CD

Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The deepest of the deep from the American scene at the start of the 70s – groups so hip they weren't quite soul, weren't quite rock – and instead kind of a funky hybrid of both! After opening our ears to countless underground sounds from around the globe, the Now Again label turn back ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD
A legendary series gets a great return here – in a special package that brings together all the best cuts from the now-classic Keb Darge Deep Funk compilations! Years before people were digging Daptone, or really giving funky 45s their full due, London DJ Keb Darge created a series of ... CD
Henry Street/BBE (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 5 CDs
20 years of inventive, profoundly soul and funk infused, floor shaking dance music from Henry Street Music – given a top shelf anniversary showcase in conjunction with BBE! Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD
A great little set of classic disco tracks, but one that also includes a few rare mixes too – all brought together in a monumental tribute to the sound of the east coast scene at the end of the 70s! The package is heavy on tracks with origins in Philly and New York – including a fair ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
A sweet set of funky club cuts from the late 70s and early 80s – music that's definitely on the funkier side of the disco spectrum, and which also does a nice job of covering ground from the time before and after the big dancefloor explosion too! This isn't gritty funk, of the funky 45 ... CD
Sony (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 3CD
A great little collection of 70s soul – one that's mostly mainstream, and a really great reminder of all the wonderful sounds that were coming our way, back in the day! The work here is from a variety of Sony labels – old catalog cuts from Columbia, RCA, and Philly International – ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The famous Duke/Peacock label was one of the most important forces in gospel music during the 50s and early 60s – home to some of the hippest, most soul-drenched acts – especially the male vocal groups that were helping transform the genre, and pave the way for lots of soul artists to ... CD
Blue Note (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A really wonderful collection of grooves that first came to light in the 90s – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Funky sounds from the rock side of the musical spectrum – music by artists who might have worked in psych or garage modes in the 60s, but also had a pretty darn heavy groove – and a fair bit of inspiration from 60s soul in their vocals! The tracks are wonderful – really unlikely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
Way more than just the electronic funk you might know from the chart-topping groups of the 80s – as this sweet little set digs way deeper, and comes up with some rare mixes and single versions too! The set list is superb – and almost stands as a reintroduction to the genre – as ... CD
Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A much-needed look at an under-exposed side of the legendary Chess Records – the label's incredible run of gospel records, most of which were every bit as great as their Chicago soul sessions! This package is the first to really dig into that rich history – and has a wonderful focus on ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy

LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP
Great cuts from the old school – pulled together from the earliest days of hip hop – at a time when the boundary lines in the music weren't so fully formed! These days, the difference between hip hop and club cuts is huge – but back in the South Bronx scene at the start, there ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the hippest collections of New Orleans soul we've ever heard – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that comes on with a sock-solid groove that even beats the previous entries in this series! In fact, since this is the fourth from Soul Jazz, the label's done an even deeper job ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

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
