✨✧ Willie Bobo & the Bo-GentsDo What You Want To Do ... CD
Sussex/Octave (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums!

Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... CD
Today/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Organist Julius Brockington did plenty of work in the church – but he's really at his best in a secular setting like this – where his work on keyboards is able to really open up and groove!

✨✧ Julius BrockingtonUnited Chair ... CD
Today/Octave (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Keyboardist Julius Brockington really takes off here – in a style that's not quite funk, not quite jazz – and which has some of the unique sophisticated changes that Gene Harris was bringing to his Blue Note records in the mid 70s! Like Gene, Julius already has a strong background on ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Dennis CoffeyElectric Coffey ... CD
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
Mad funk from Dennis Coffey – and the follow-up to his landmark Evolution album! It's interesting to note that Coffey's group is listed as the "Detroit Guitar Band" – which kind of foregrounds their link between the city's two strongest music sides of the late 60s: the hard ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Dennis CoffeyEvolution ... CD
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
A groundbreaking record – and one that set a whole new standard for guitar funk in the 70s! By the time of this set, Dennis Coffey had been playing, arranging, and producing all over the Detroit soul scene for many years – so it wasn't like he really needed a hit to get paid or ...

Dennis Coffey albums are always great, but this one's especially good, and it's very very tough to find compared to the rest of them! There's two 7-minute long jamming cuts on here – "Moon Star" and "Outrageous (The Mind Excursion)" – which both have totally great ... (Soul) read more CD

Perception/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
A rare set from the Chicago scene of the early 70s – put together by a group who are the "American family" promised in the title, but who have a lot more to offer than just the kiddie soul of the time! The members of the group have a nice range of ages and styles – which ... (Soul) read more CD

Red Coach/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost funky classic from the Kool & The Gang side of the universe – cut by a group we've only seen on this one and only record – which was recorded for one of the sub-labels of De-Lite Records, home to the main Gang!

✨✧ Fatback BandFeel My Soul ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of three amazing albums the Fatback Band cut for the Perception label in the early 70s – and a set that's definitely the most soulful of the bunch!

Fatback BandPeople Music ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
A seminal record in the transition from the funky 45 underground to the world of the full length LP – a record we'd put right up there with early classics by The JBs and Kool & The Gang! As with the latter, Fatback Band grew up first getting some great play on instrumental 45s – ... (Soul) read more CD

Erroll GarnerDreamstreet ... LP
ABC/Octave, 1961. Very Good ... $4.99
Garner grooves nicely here – finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Now ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work by Astrud Gilberto – very different than her Verve sides of the 60s! The album was produced by Astrud, arranged by Deodato – and has that wonderful warm full jazz feel of her classic album on CTI, but also a bit more like some of the funky work of Jorge Ben at the time ...

Perception/Octave (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Really fantastic work from Dizzy Gillespie – proof that of all the original boppers, he was maybe the one who really continued to experiment over the years – as he comes across here with a great blend of electric funk and jazz!

Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them – a bit like his Soul Salvation ...

Tribe/Octave (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99 26.99
A real treasure from the Detroit scene of the 70s – a never-issued Tribe Records album by Wendell Harrison, and one that's got a bit more of a soul/funk vibe than some of the other sessions on the label!

An excellent groover from the Kay-Gees – one of the few groups who could move from a funk sound into disco without losing their integrity!

The Kay-Gees' funkiest record ever – a set that's harder and sharper than anything else they'd ever record in years to come!

Zulema's first album – and one that's got a much deeper soul feel than any of her later work for RCA.
