✨✧ 24 - Carat BlackGhetto – Misfortune's Wealth ... CD
Stax, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This beautiful LP was released by Stax in the early 70s, but somehow got lost in the shuffle between all the Isaac Hayes LPs. Fortunately, it was rediscovered by the international groove community about 10 years ago, and it's been at the top of everyone's playlist (and want list) ever since! This is sort of a politically conscious mini-opera, or suite, with 8 tracks of spiritual funk and soul, all strung together in a righteous package that's as perfectly-conceived as you could imagine for an independent soul release from the 70s. You've probably heard at least one sample from this LP – maybe from the cuts "Brown-Baggin", "Food Stamps", or the title cut "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth", a great sample cut – but the whole album's great, and it totally deserves its massive reputation! We've got it here on a reissued CD, in a better mix than on the original LP, which is a little too quiet! CD

✨✧ 24 - Carat BlackGhetto – Misfortune's Wealth (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The one-time obscure, now straight-up classic funky soul record by 24-Carat Black! This beautiful LP was released by Stax in the early 70s, but somehow got lost in the shuffle. Fortunately, it was rediscovered by the international groove community in the years to come, and it's been at the top of everyone's playlist (and want list) ever since! This is sort of a politically conscious mini-opera, or suite, with 8 tracks of spiritual funk and soul, all strung together in a righteous package that's as perfectly-conceived as you could imagine for an independent soul release from the 70s.

✨✧ VariousBack To Black ... CD
Lo Recordings (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredibly righteous selection of soul and funk tunes from the 60s and 70s – one that has a strong focus on the politics and social commentary of the tracks, yet still manages to keep up the groove as well! The set was collected in collaboration with a British exhibition on "art, cinema, and the racial imaginary" – but it's got a sound that's more than hip enough to stand on its own, and does a great job of pulling together some key tracks from the early 70s underground, and interspersing them with even more obscure numbers that help to expand the range of the set. Titles include "Celestial Blues" by Andy Bey, "Supermarket Blues" by Eugene McDaniels, "It Ain't Necessarily So" by Mary Lou Williams, "Rhythm" by Street Gangland Rhythms Band, "Ghetto Misfortunes Wealth" by 24 Carat Black, "Gang Fight" by Street Gangland Rhythms Band, "Wake Up Brothers" by Doug Hammond, "Seduction/Kinship Poem" by Nikki Giovanni, "USA (Union Of South Africa)" by David Lampel, "Is It Because I'm Black" by Lloyd Williams, "Heavy Duty Dub" by Harry Mudie Meets King Tubby, and "This Is The Lost Generation" by Lost Generation.

✨✧ VariousPaint It Black – From Jazz To Soul 'N' Funk To Blacksploitation ... CD
Brown Sugar (Germany), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hip soul, funk, and more – a killer collection that's filled with underground classics from the 70s – including a number of key tracks that have lived on strongly as hip hop samples! The package features some nicely heady grooves – and includes a number of tracks with a pronounced fusion influence, but one that's never too jamming or over the top – just right in the pocket, with the same soulful sensibilities as the other tunes on the set! Titles include "Fantasy" by Johnny Hammond, "Jug Eyes" by Gene Ammons, "Wildfire" by Rusty Bryant, "Sport" by Lightning Rod, "Chicken Lickin" by Funk Inc, "Chase" by Willie Hutch, "Turn Off The Lights" by Larry Young, "If You've Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters, "The One Eye Two Step" by Donald Byrd & The Blackbyrds, "People Moving" by Azar Lawrence, and "Ghetto Misfortune's Wealth" by 24 Carat Black.

✨✧ VariousPraise Poems 2 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A really righteous little collection – and one that definitely blows away most of the competition! The style here is deeper and more sophisticated than just the usual batch of funky grooves – and instead, these artists work in a special space between spiritual jazz and more ambitious soul – a very special style that only bubbled up in a rare few scenes back in the day – and which stands nicely next to better-known classics by artists like James Mason or 24 Carat Black! Like those artists, these singers and musicians don't care about conventional boundaries – or hitting the charts as well – and they soar out beautifully on wings of creative energy that make the whole collection a wonderful musical journey. Titles include "Midnight & You" by Odyssey Group, "Scratch My Back" by Soul Scratchers, "Spanish Guitar" by Jimmy Briggs with Willie Moore's Quintet, "Fly Away" by Abraham Battat, "Dawn" by Richard Martian & Co, "Missed Another Day" by Gingerbread Express, "Would You Believe" by Gloria Rosebud Black, "The Provider" by Seeds Of Fulfillment, "Wild Wild World" by Larry Dismond, "Seaons Of Doubt" by Finnegan/Finlan, and "Summer Love" by Portis Brothers.

✨✧ Father's ChildrenWho's Gonna Save The World ... CD
Numero, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible stuff – a never-issued funky soul record from the 70s – but one that you'll proudly stack next to your rare classics from Ramp, 24-Carat Black, and James Mason! Like work by all three of those acts, this early set by Father's Children is massive righteous – filled with deep soul and strong social messages, while also coming across with a hell of a groove, too – thanks to some wickedly funky backings, and production that keeps the whole thing burning along beautifully! The set is amazing – quite different than the later Mercury Records album by the band – and more like the kind of record you'd expect to hear from Curtom or early 70s Stax – a perfect choice for the folks at Numero to bring to light after all these years – and another reason why their efforts are always worth checking out. As usual for the label, there's a full set of notes and photos that tell the story of the group and this lost treasure – but even if it came out with no artwork at all, the music would still have us raving – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Universal Train", "Everybody's Got A Problem", "Linda", "Dirt & Grime", "Who's Gonna Save The World", and "Kohoutek".

✨✧ Young DisciplesRoad To Freedom (US version) ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Polygram, 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soul albums of the past 20 years – an instant classic the day it was released! When this killer came out in the UK in 1991, it was one of the best soul records we'd heard in years. Carleen Anderson, the then-unknown daughter of Bobby Byrd & Vicki Anderson, sung some of the deepest vocals we'd heard in years – and she was backed by funky soundscapes filled with references and homages to greats like Roy Ayers, Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, 24-Carat Black, and many others – all now well-remembered artists from the rare groove years of the 70s, but at the time just barely-remembered echoes from the past who were being kept alive in the British soul scene. The record was (and is) impeccable – a wondrous treat for fans of the kind of rare groove material we stock at Dusty Groove – and it features stellar performances by the likes of Carleen Anderson, Master Ace, Johnny Lytle, Maceo Parker, and others! This US version features a few remixes from the original UK album – and titles include "All I Have (Young Ideas mix)", "Funky Yeh Funki (Mek It)", "Talkin What I Feel", "Move On", "Apparently Nothin (Soul River)", "Get Yourself Together (parts 1 & 2)", "Freedom Suite", "Step Right On (original mix)", and "As We Come (To Be)".
