Vostock, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – ... CD

Now Again, 2017. New Copy
A third mighty dip into the huge catalog of Now Again Records – the special offshoot of Stones Throw that's given us countless funk, soul, and psych rarities over the past decade or so! This set of mixes may well be the trippiest so far we've heard from the combination of Oh Now and the ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
A totally great look at the explosion of electronic sounds in German music during the 70s – a set that goes way past more familiar Krautrock territory, to bring together elements from the artier side of the spectrum too, and even run up to some of the first great moments of the German new ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP

LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Disco Spectrum series of compilations – a run of records that first burst forth at the end of the 90s, and showed the world that there was a huge amount of underground music to discover from the mainstream disco years! Disco Spectrum cuts aren't the ones ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reel People (UK), 2017. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic tribute to a really mighty label – one of the few contemporary club imprints who can effortlessly combine future soul and dancefloor grooves – all in a way that makes both sides of the spectrum sound even better together! Papa's one of the rare few labels carrying on the ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A long-overdue second volume of the Soul From Jamdown series – issued 15 years after the first one, and maybe even more incredible overall! As before, the focus here is on Jamaican music that draws very direct inspiration from American soul – sometimes as cover versions of famous ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
A record club that's way way cooler than the Columbia House version of the 70s – as the Mr Bongo take on the format features only rare funk tracks from around the world! Most of these tunes here are from vintage Brazilian and African sources – but the tunes still have plenty of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 1960s. New Copy
An amazing batch of rare 60s bossa nova – all hand-picked by the mighty Nicola Conte, an artist who definitely shows a strong love of the bossa in his own music!

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! The pair have been known for years from the massive beats in their On Track mixes, and from subsequent reissue singles – but this set has them moving ... LP, Vinyl record album
Expansion (UK), 2017. New Copy
Lots of killer contemporary soul tracks – but served up with the kind of classic warmth we've always loved in the Soul Togetherness series! The set's got a great selection of well-chosen cuts that are mostly from the current underground – some by artists who've gotten a shot at fame, ... CD
Essential, 1980s. New Copy
Way more than the usual 80s grooves – as the set definitely takes the "rare" in its title seriously, and presents a huge amount of cuts that were even new to our boogie-trained ears! The set's not the usual electro soul or post-disco material – and instead, really moves ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Great sounds from a series that's always got us Feeling Nice – thanks to its never-ending array of rare funk and soul tracks from the glory days of the scene! The work here goes way past the obvious – and given that Tramp's been giving us some of the best funky 45 reissues for over a ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
The title says "jazz", but there's a lot more going on here – a range of groundbreaking sounds and styles from the 70s, with some sweet electric modes, occasional Latin rhythms, currents of soul, and even a bit of Brazilian too! The package really takes us back to the kind of rare ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really ... CD
Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
A huge festival of 70s soul – not the big hits of the time, but a wealth of underground gemes that show us there's still plenty to discover in that magical decade! The artists here are all big, but the tunes are sometimes more obscure – lesser-known gems from familiar names – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
A long-overdue second volume of the Soul From Jamdown series – issued 15 years after the first one, and maybe even more incredible overall! As before, the focus here is on Jamaican music that draws very direct inspiration from American soul – sometimes as cover versions of famous ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 6 x 10 inch
Maybe the rootsiest set so far in this excellent series – and one that almost seems to go back and look a bit at the evolution of the genre! As you probably know from our notes on the previous collections, the term "jukebox mambo" is here used to refer to postwar R&B that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
