BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
One of the most fantastic collections we've ever heard from DJ Amir – a set that may well blow away his classic On/Off Track sets for the depth of its spirit and feeling! Amir's been well-known as a crate digger for many years – and while digging for funk, soul, and hip hop on the New ... CD

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 ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Think The Beatles only had an impact on rock and pop fans in the America of the 60s? Think again – because their music had an undeniable impact on soul as well – as you'll here from this wonderful range of remakes of classic cuts from the Fab Four! The work here is a real surprise if ... CD

BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Great grooves in the classic popcorn soul mode – a special blend of R&B, jazz vocals, early soul, and outright pop – served up on tracks that have a really wonderful groove at the bottom! The popcorn sound is a midtempo stepping one – not as upbeat as Northern Soul, and often ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The title's no lie – as the set's filled with super rare boogie and disco – yet the music here isn't just obscure, it's also totally great – really wonderful sounds from the farther reaches of the American club underground! The grooves here are fantastic – and many numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Numero, 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Home Schooled collection from Numero Group – and, like that one, a set that focuses on the surprisingly great genre of kid soul that flourished in the 70s – in the wake of bigger groups like the Jackson Five, Sylvers, and 5 Stairsteps! These ... LP, Vinyl record album

Because (France), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Sweet electronic sounds from 70s France – pulled from a range of sources that include disco records, prog rock sets, sound library sessions, and even film soundtracks – all served up with a very cool, very cosmic sort of vibe! The French scene took its electronics differently than some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Spiritual sounds from the source – a host of incredible tracks from a time when jazz was really opening up into new dimensions – as players stepped forward in a wave of strong post-Coltrane energy to really push the music into the skies! The music here can be seen as a blueprint for ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
Rare grooves that go way way past the usual disco and club you might know from the end of the 70s – music pulled from the farthest reaches of the American underground, and which is often quite different than more familiar soul that you might know from the time! The tracks here mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A great little collection that definitely lives up to the promise of "dirty grooves" in the title – as many of these numbers have a sharp edge and gritty side to their instrumentation – which means that even the familiar artists sound nice and heavy in this setting – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mod Jazz
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Incredible sounds from the Chess Records catalog – not the blues that you might know the label for, but a huge range of funk, soul, and jazz tracks from the headiest years of the 60s and 70s – a time when the Chicago scene was really turning out some incredible musical hybrids! As you'd ... CD

BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3LP
One of the hippest collections on BBE we've heard in years – a really underground batch of breaks that features fantastically rare tracks in a variety of different genres! The set beautifully shows just how far the funky scene has come in recent years – because many of these cuts are ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 3LP
One of the hippest compilations we've heard in years – a treasure trove of rare grooves from legendary crate diggers Kon and Amir!

Partners In Crime (Italy), Early 70s/1997. New Copy
Second volume in the great Mood Mosaic series, and even funkier than the first one! The focus here is on funky stuff with a soundtracky feel, and the list includes some remakes – like Henry Mancini's "Streets of San Francisco" and Bobby Forrester's "Sanford & Son" ... CD

Partners In Crime (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A wonderfully groovy set – every bit as great as you might guess from the title and the cover – and the very first installment in the now-legendary Mood Mosaic series! The set's one of the few to bring together tunes from the groovier side of the spectrum at the end of the 60s – ... CD
