Rare Groove Spectrum

LP (Item 939197) Freestyle (UK), 2019 — Condition: Very Good+

Lance Ferguson has given us plenty of great work over the years – from his work in The Bamboos, to all his many other projects – yet as much as we've liked all of those, this one might actually be one of his best – a fantastic reworking of rare groove tracks from the 70s, all with a nicely changed-up sense of instrumentation! The set's mostly instrumental, and Lance takes on tracks originally recorded by James Mason, Pleasure, Funk Inc, and other names who are big heavyweights 'round these parts – served up with very strong instrumentation by a combo that includes members of The Bamboos, Hiatus Kaiyote, and The Putbacks. Titles include "Sweet Power Your Embrace", "Goodbye So Long", "Joyous", "Egg Roll", "Brazilian Rhyme", "Am I Wrong", "A Love I Believe In", "Noches De Viaje", "The Panther", and "Smokey Joe's La La".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Big Crown, 2019. Near Mint-
We've loved the music of Lee Fields for many many years – but these days, he seems to be sounding even better than ever – taking all of his decades of experience in soul music, and blending his deep soul roots with an even more mature, open sort of style! And even though Lee's early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funk Forever EP
Bastard Jazz, 2018. Very Good+
The Pendletons really love the sound of 80s funk – and they do a mighty great job of recreating its charm here – thanks to some well-crafted basslines and lots of sweet keyboards! The vocals are great, too – often paired up, in that 80s way of having the voices come from a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gotta Keep It Rollin
Al Dente (France), 2018. Sealed
The Moonfires better keep it rolling, given that they're being chased by a giant ape on the cover – but with the mighty Alex Puddu on guitar, they can't help but take off and soar! The album's got that great commitment to classic cinematic funk styles that we've always loved in Puddu's music ... LP, Vinyl record album
