9th CreationBubble Gum ... LP
Rite Track/Past Due, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time – especially Pleasure, who with their sharp sense of a groove are probably the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

9th CreationReaching For The Top ... CD
Prelude/Past Due, 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
Damn funky work from 9th Creation – a group who recorded this set for the mostly-disco Prelude label, but who still serve up the same heavy sound as their earlier work! There's a tightness here that few other groups can touch – that special magic that you can hear when a larger funk ensemble somehow manages to groove with the sharpness of a quartet – but with this fuller sound that really infuses the songs with a fantastic current of soul! The set's got a few mellower moments mixed in with the groovers – the sort of balance that only Earth Wind & Fire might have gotten this right – and there's also maybe a bit more of a spiritual vibe to some of the lyrics, in a mighty nice way. Titles include "Come Back Home", "He's Coming", "A Good Time", "The Time Has Come", "Reaching For The Top", and "It Ain't Right". CD

9th CreationSuperheroes ... LP
Hilltak/Past Due, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Fantastic funk from 9th Creation – a group who really tighten up their sound for this record, but still stay as wonderful as before! There's a totally right-on-the-money vibe to the whole thing – like the best Wayne Henderson/At Home productions from the late 70s – or maybe that great Parliament moment when the group was trimming it down, but still finding a way to add in all these great elements around the edges! JD Burrise produced, and also handles the lead vocals – but the whole thing's a definite ensemble effort, and it's clear that these guys were having a hell of a time putting the record together in the studio – especially given all the sweet moments in the instrumentation – which hit some jazzy passages too. Titles include "Superheroes", "What's Shakin", "Got My Baby Back", "Shucks You're Fine", "I'd Do It Again", "Much Too Much", and the nice mellow number "Love is a Fantasy". Sweet and jazzy – very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 9th CreationStep Ahead ... LP
Past Due, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic music from 9th Creation – an album that was recorded in the early 80s, but never issued at the time – which is a heck of a shame, as it's some of the best work we've ever heard from the group! The album's got a great blend of funk and soul – with a deepening of both the vocal and instrumental arrangements, at a level that really keeps things interesting throughout – and which unlocks these righteous elements in the music that we totally love! There's a fair bit of uptempo tracks, but these are mixed with great mellower moments too – with a vibe that's maybe a bit like the last few Leroy Hutson albums on Curtom – which is mighty fine praise from us. The notes indicate that only cassette copies were made of the sessions, but Past Due have done a wonderful job of bringing the music back to life with surprisingly strong fidelity – and titles include "More & More", "Always Be Lovers", "Let It Shine", "Beautiful Lady", "Music Is My Pen & Paper", and "A Step Ahead".

✨✧ VariousCrusin – Selected & Mixed By DJ Cam ... CD
Dirty South (France), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A funky mixtape – put together by DJ Cam! The album brings together 15 killer cuts from the 70s – mostly mellow soul and jazz-tinged groovers, of the CTI and Capitol Rare variety – all expertly selected by Cam, and laid out back to back in one seamless mix. The CD is numbered, so that you can jump in at the beginning of each track – and the tunes are presented in their entirety, with just a slight bit of remixing to help smooth the shift from cut to cut. The whole thing's great – super-dope and mad mellow – with tracks that include "Enchanted Lady" by Milt Jackson, "Space Talk" by Asha Pulthi, "Rule Of Mind" by 9th Creation, "Love Is Love" by Ubiquity, "Mister Mellow" by Maynard Ferguson, "I Had A Dream" by Hubert Laws, "Spread Your Wings" by Peabo Bryson, "Two Of Us" by Cameo, "Bumpin Bus Stop" by Thunder & Lightning, "Fantasy Interlude" by The Originals, "Soul Fusion" by Milt Jackson, "Amalgam" by Dudley Moore Trio, and "Yesterday" by Clifford Brown.
