Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead ... CD
Demon (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold

Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The set's billed as "the perfect soundtrack to chill on the beach", but it's way more than that – and besides, when we always used to go to the beach, all the radios were always blaring classic rock or mainstream pop – and this collection is way way deeper than that! Guts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD
The 12" single was born in the 70s, and it instantly came of age in the disco generation – thanks to help from the sorts of wonderful grooves features in this set! The package is way more than just a batch of hit disco singles – as the range of material is nicely wide, and mixes ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of ... CD
Crimson (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 CDs
Easy to groove with cuts this great – a sweet range of 80s 12 inch singles, mostly in soul-based styles, but also featuring a few nice bits from leftfield too! The core of the set comes from a time when a 12" remix could really take a soul cut in a whole new direction – and some ... CD
West End (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP

Rob's choices are quite far from the obvious – and are made up from a ... LP, Vinyl record album
O Records/Cherry Pop (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD
80s club galore – served up here in an excellent look at the O Records label – a small company that was driven by producer Bobby O – an artist who really helped strip down the dancefloor sound in the years after disco! A decade before, and these cuts might have had a lot of ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy
The long-running Mood Mosaic series is on its 14th trip and flaunts the most starkly naked cover model in all of the many travels! Here they lay out a mix of 70s exotic pop, soul and funk from around the world – sultry grooves from Camille Yarbrough, Ben Sidran, Asha Puthli, Kenny Rankin and ... CD

Partners In Crime (Italy), 1997. New Copy
Strange twist for this series (which has been mostly lounge and funk), but a great batch of danceable uptempo fusion tracks and lost disco cuts from the euro club heyday of the 70s. Tracks include "Ma Mo Ah" by Tony Valor, "Follow Me" by Black Devil, "Dance Freak" by ... CD

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
