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

Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy Gatefold
The fourth fantastic volume in this wonderful series – and maybe the best so far, as the Beach Diggin groove has extended past its familiar boundaries – to pick up rare soulful sounds from points all over the globe! The approach is wonderful – with a focus on slinky cuts that ... CD

Essential, Late 70s. New Copy
A sweet set of tropics-infused disco cuts from the end of the 70s – not grooves recorded in the tropics, but American tracks that bring in a range of different flavors from south of the border! The mix here is a bit more upfront than some of the exotic disco of the time – as most of ... CD

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
One of the deepest-digging entries in the Super Funk series so far – a blistering batch of underground singles that serve up some of the roughest funk of their generation! We'll be honest in saying that we'd only heard a few of the tracks here before – and our hats are off to BGP for ... CD

Essential, Late 70s. New Copy
Some of the most playful tracks of the disco generation – songs that draw a heavy inspiration from film and TV – sometimes by offering up clubby covers of the original versions, sometimes by taking off in great new directions of their own! There's a decidedly camp vibe to the set ... CD

Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A deep selection of grooves that are warm and breezy, but also nicely tripped out at times – way more than a simple compilation of sunny sounds – and instead a globe-spanning set of diverse gems!

Universal (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
Genius is right – as legendary mixologist Larry Levan completely transformed the sound of the dancefloor with his work on the New York scene – providing a crucial bridge between the years of disco and house music – and creating some important excitement during the years when the ... CD

Groovy Sounds, 1960s/1970s. New Copy
CD...$1.99 13.99
One of the cookingest funky compilations we've ever carried – a monster batch of 10 funky Hammond organ tracks, all pretty darn obscure! The set was done under the supervision of New York Funk 45 DJ Mr Fine Wine – and features a stunning batch of tunes that are all plenty darn hard to ... CD

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A beautiful tribute to a legendary Chicago soul historian – the late Bob Abrahamian, well-remembered as a completely devoted soul music collector, DJ, and one-man archive who spent the late years of his life trying to uncover lost corners of the Windy City soul scene of the 60s and 70s! Bob's ... CD

Outta Sight (UK), 1970s/2015. New Copy
This series just keeps on getting better with each new volume – going back to the 70s and coming up with nuggets that nobody's thought about in years, then finding a way to put them all together so that they sound even better in the context of each other! There's plenty of funky cuts here ... CD

Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from DJ Muro – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how much we love his other projects! This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy ... CD

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!

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Damn funky work from the west coast scene of the late 60s and early 70s – just the kind of tracks to dispel the idea that too much sun or cannabis might have left the Cali scene a bit weak! Instead, these cuts are right on the money, stone funky throughout, and light years from any sort of ... CD

Athens Of The North (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
One of the coolest collections of music we've ever heard from the legendary TK Records in Miami – a company that was a powerhouse of 70s hits and disco classics – but which also cut some wonderful underground soul at the time! This sublime set looks at that great lesser-known legacy of ... LP, Vinyl record album
