✨✧ Spirit Of AtlantaBurning Of Atlanta ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Hannibal PetersonAngels Of Atlanta ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1981. Used ... $9.99
One of the most ambitious works ever by Marvin Hannibal Peterson – a larger work dedicated to the 20 African-American children murdered by a serial killer in Atlanta, performed here with a mix of choral voices and jazz instrumentation! The piece follows strongly in a legacy of that format started by Max Roach and continued by Billy Harper – and Peterson works here with players that include George Adams on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Dierde Murray on cello – plus the voices of The Harlem Boys Choir, and lead vocals by Pat Peterson. The whole thing's wonderful – soaring and spiritual without sounding hokey at all – and titles include "The Angels Of Atlanta", "The Story Teller", "The Inner Voice", "Mothers Land", and "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child".

Chance HaydenGet Somethin' ... CD
Ropeadope/Atlanta, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Tight guitar from Chance Hayden – a player who definitely knows how to get a lot of color and tone out of his instrument, even while picking out a sharp note solo! There's a dexterity in Hayden's style that's clearly inspired by the more proficient blues guitarists in recent generations – but the overall sound here is much more jazz funk, with a core quartet that features keyboards, bass, and drums – all in a nicely lean sound that allows Chance to shine in the spotlight at a level that's a bit like Eddie Roberts (of New Mastersounds fame) on some of his solo sets. Jarrod Lawson provides guest vocals on a great version of the Donny Hathaway tune "Someday We'll All Be Free" – and other tracks include "Hung Up On My Baby", "Get Somethin", "Matrix", "Take The Call", "Kissing My Love", "Many Disguises", and "You Mother You".

AzanyahOne ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1987. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the hippest records we've ever heard from the Atlanta scene of the 80s – a spiritual jazz set that feels like something that could have been recorded over a decade before – given the warm acoustic instrumentation, and righteous overall vibe! In fact, it may well have been the late 80s issue of this album that's kept it so lost over the years – a bit late in the game for any audiences digging this type of music, and with an odd date that's possibly gotten it missed by diggers mostly looking for 70s spiritual jazz sessions. Yet whatever the case, the album's a gem through and through – with these long, open tracks that build with a great blend of sax, flute, guitar, piano, and plenty of percussion – as well as the warm, solid basslines of Mamaniji Azanyah, the group's leader. There's a bit of vocals, but overall the album's instrumental – with a vibe that feels like some of the best mid 70s sounds on the Black Fire label. Titles include "The One", "In The Beauty Of Holiness", "Praise", "Guiding Light", and "I Will Surely Come Again". CD

BrickWaiting On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1980. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked killer from Brick – the group's fourth album, but every bit as tight and funkier as earlier sets! Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves. Titles include "Push Push", "Get Started", "All The Way", "Waiting On You", "Free", "Sweet Lips", and "Let Me Make You Happy". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – "Dazz" and "Dusic", served up in longer 12" versions! CD

Keisa BrownKeisa Brown Live ... LP
Little Star, Early 70s. Very Good ... $1.99
Live album cut by obscure Atlanta singer Keisa Brown – performed in a style that mixes jazz and soul, with lots of monologues, in a manner that reminds us of Marlena Shaw during the same period. The record's got the benefit of arrangements by HB Barnum, which might be the best thing about it – since Keisa kind of leaves us cold. Tracks include "Don't Take Away Your Love", "TJ", "LA Catcher", and "Once In A Lifetime". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony DavidHello Like Before – The Songs Of Bill Withers ... CD
Shanachie, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
A really great combination of talents – the songs of Bill Withers and the vocals of Anthony David – a singer whose acoustic undercurrents make him a perfect partner for Bill's music! If anything, the presentation here might be even more spare and stripped-down than Withers' originals – as the music was recorded on the Atlanta scene, with backing from some of David's key associates – all in a laidback groove that's jazzy and electric one minute, spare and acoustic the other. The songs give David a majesty we've never heard before – and titles include "I Can't Write Left Handed", "Use Me", "Hope She'll Be Happier", "Lovely Day", "Kissing My Love", "Spend The Night", "Hello Like Before", "I Don't Know", "Grandma's Hands", and "You Can't Just Smile It Away".

DaytoniansLet Jesus Work It Out ... LP
Church Door/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The Daytonians may let Jesus work it out, but they also do a heck of a lot themselves – more than plenty to make the record a rare funky gospel treasure from the 70s! The group hail from Dayton, Ohio, and cut the record in Atlanta – and there's some indication that Calvin Arnold was involved with the whole thing – as there's key funky currents to the music that remind us of the mix of rootsy grit and tightness in his own records, and which sound even better next to the magnificent harmonies of the group! As with the best soul-styled gospel albums of the period, the grooves and production are pretty darn down to earth – meaning that there's plenty here to love even if you're not taken with the spirit – and even more if you are. Titles include "Shelter", "Why Can't I", "Jesus Is Calling", "Deep River", "My Rock", and "I Got Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

Diamond Street PlayersDiamond Street Players ... LP
Gemco, 2019. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
Raw funky soul from Diamond Street Players – heavy on vintage inspired, timelessly spun instrumentals, but nailing down some standout vocal jams with Orgone vocalist Adryon de Leon and Atlanta soul singer Amanda Joy – and ultimately delivering a solid gem for the Gemco label! The core group is a 5 piece with Ben Davis on sax and flute, Ian Newberry and Kevin Scott on guitars, Mark Raudabuagh on guitars and Spencer Garn on Hammond & Rhodes. Garn grooves strong enough to qualify as the group's secret weapon, but they're really a well oiled unit all around, nailing it on the intrumental tip and on soul-steeped backing vocals. Titles include "How Many Lies, How Many Times" with Adryon De Leon "Split The Difference", "Bada Dum Dum", "Healey '67", "Murky Retrograde", "Organ Workout", "Suzy's Boogaloo", "Million Miles" with Amanda Joy LP, Vinyl record album

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1973/1974. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Two deep soul cuts from this seminal Atlanta talents! "Walls That Separate Our Love" is a slow-burner from John Edwards – a tune that's sweetened with strings at the start, but which soon has Edwards reminding us that he's a hell of a vocalist in the best southern soul mode! "This Man's Arms" is a mellow gem from before the years when Loleatta Holloway was working the disco scene – a heartbreaking deep soul cut that could have made her one of the most powerful forces on that scene, had she continued in that style! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Loleatta HollowayLoleatta (1973) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
If you only know Loleatta Holloway as a disco singer, you'll be really amazed at this debut album from 1973 – because Loleatta emerges first as deep soul singer with a strong southern vibe – very much in the mode the Atlanta scene did best, before picking up the pace a bit more as the 70s moved on! There's a mellow, blue sort of vibe to the record – but still plenty of that pride and power that made Holloway an equally great singer on an upbeat tune – served up here on tunes by Sam Dees, Ashford & Simpson, and other hip songwriters of the period – set to strong arrangements by Mike Terry, who does a great job of bringing out the lady at her best. Titles include "We Did It", "Mother Of Shame", "Only A Fool", "So Can I", "Our Love", and "Love Woke Me Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Millie JacksonLovingly Yours ... LP
Spring, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great point in Millie Jackson's career – recorded when she was picking up more confidence and class, but not going too far into that badass mode of later years! The sound here is still mostly southern soul, but Millie and co-producer Brad Shapiro have warmed it up a lot – bringing in some of the clubbier touches that were bubbling through the Atlanta scene of the mid 70s – smoothing things out, but in a way that still has Jackson's heartfelt soul at the heart of the record. Both The Moments and Brandy sing backing vocals on some cuts, and titles include "From Her Arms To Mine", "A Love Of Your Own", "You Can't Turn Me Off", "I'll Be Rolling", "Help Me Finish My Song", "Body Movements", "I'll Live My Love For You", and "Something Bout Cha".

King HannibalTruth ... LP
Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really grabs his groove from the very first note on the set! Backings are hard and funky – lots of fuzzy guitar work from Herman Hitson and Lee Moses – and the tunes come across with a gritty mode that sometimes rolls into mellower southern soul styles, but still never lose their edge. Bits of politics creep into the lyrics nicely, but never get in the way of the groove – and tracks include a long version of Hannibal's classic "Hymn No 5", plus "Party Life", "I Got That Will", "The Truth Shall Make You Free", "Wake Up", "Black Girl", and "It's What You Do".

Yusef LateefSuite 16 ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A groundbreaking set from Yusef Lateef – one that mixes together a number of different soul jazz styles! In a way, Atlantic records tried to handle Yusef Lateef in the same way they did Roland Kirk – by creating recordings that either let him express himself strongly as an arch-modernist, or those that focused on his solo talents in material that was a bit more funky and soulful. This album's got a bit of both – as side one has Yusef playing with slightly electric groups on short tracks that feature vocal backings by the Sweet Inspirations, and side two features Yusef playing with the Cologne Radio Orchestra, conducted by William Fischer, on an extended work called "The Symphonic Blues Suite". We dig the shorter tracks better, and those titles include "Nocturne", "Buddy & Lou", and "Down In Atlanta". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richard MarksLove Is Gone – The Lost Sessions 1969 to 1977 ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CDs ... $13.99 19.99
Never-issued work from underground Atlanta soul genius Richard Marks – an artist who never got much exposure back in the day, but who kept on producing and recording funky soul nuggets on his own! Marks' later years were covered in a previous set by the Now Again label – and this time around, they dig even deeper into his past – with a whole host of tracks that could have been the stuff of rare funky 45 dreams – had they ever gotten released as 7" singles! Marks clearly has a strong influence from James Brown and his band – and the main instrumentation on most of the combo cuts is guitar, which is used to really whomp down on the rhythms, and enforce the groove in the way that James might have done! There's also some cuts that show Richard hitting some more mellow 70s styles too – almost echoes of Bill Withers, especially when he uses acoustic guitar instead of electric – and there's a few occasional deep soul moments too. Titles include "Never Satisfied", "Crackerjack", "Challenge To A Pretty Woman", "Your Friends", "Trying To Survive", "I'm The Man For You", "It's Been Kinda Hard", "Love Is Gone", "Speak Now", "Simple Carefree Life", and "China Doll (extended)". 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – lots of bonus material!

Zoot SimsZoot Sims Recorded Live At EJ's ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. Used ... $12.99
Zoot Sims is one of those players who always seems to open up more in a live date than a studio session – and this great little album is key testament to that fact! The set was recorded live at EJ's in Atlanta in the early 80s, but it's got a sense of imagination and fire that are totally great – and which show that, even in these years when Zoot wasn't at the top of the list as big names in jazz, he was still working tremendously to expand his sound and musical vision. The album's got some especially great work on soprano sax, alongside more familiar lines on tenor – all blown with a nice edge, even on more standard tunes. Other players include Yancy Korossi on piano, Dwewy Sampson on bass, and James Martin on drums – and Rick Bell plays additional tenor on three of the album's ten tracks. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "In A Mellow Tone", "Jitterbug Waltz", "That Old Devil Called Love", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", and "Lester Leaps In". CD

BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
Funky soul from one of the less-discovered scenes in the south – the hotbed of small labels that were making some mighty great grooves in Atlanta during the 70s! The Peachtree city isn't nearly as well-cited as a soul music source in comparison to places like Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and even Miami – but back in the mid 70s, there was something really special going on – and for a strong moment, a few different labels really gave the city some great music! Much of the work here represents the changing character of Atlanta itself – deep soul vocals that were forged in a longer southern tradition, mixed with well-crafted grooves that show all the modern elements coming into play as the city grew and matured. Most of this work has a pre-disco vibe – with rhythms that are similar to the early work of Fatback or Kool & The Gang – with the difference that the singers in the lead are all pretty darn great on their own. BGP did an excellent job of choosing the tracks for the set, and the notes, as always, are great – and the package features 22 titles that include "Let's Dance" by Family Plann, "Seeds Of Life" by East LA Car Pool, "Down At The Disco" by Maggabrain, "Ain't It Funky" by Johnny Jacobs, "The Bump" by Floyd Smith, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Archie Russell, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Ripple, "Funk Pump" by The Counts, "Claim Jumpin" by Bill Brandon, "Checkmate" by The Ebony Godfather, "Shouldn't I Be Given The Right To Be Wrong" by Joe Hinton, "Husband In Law" by CL Blast, "Only A Fool" by Loleatta Holloway, "When I Build My World" by Jimmy Lewis, and "Complain To The Clouds" by Deep Velvet.

Bang, 1976. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "That's What It's All About", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister".

Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential work from Nathan Davis – one of our favorite jazz musicians ever! Davis is one of those cats who you'll never find mentioned in the mainstream, but his music has had a profound influence on our groove for many years – an essential soul jazz style that is finally given full due by this wonderful compilation! Nathan's got a very long resume in jazz – but one that's mostly occurred in the underground – time in both the KC and Pittsburgh scenes here in the US, and key years overseas, working in Paris, Germany, and even Eastern Europe – touching both musicians and jazz fans alike in his travels, and continuing to develop a really unique, truly amazing sound. Davis plays both tenor and soprano sax on these recordings – blowing with a style that owes just a bit to Coltrane, but which really takes off strongly on its own groove too – often with modal rhythms in support of his tones, which makes for some really spiritual, exotic moments in his music. The package brings together a wealth of rare recordings by Davis, many of which are not currently available in any form – cuts from albums for MPS, European Polydor, and other overseas labels – and some rare indie cuts from the US too. Titles include a version of "A5" recorded live in Yugoslavia; the rare "Cecen Kizi", recorded in Turkey – and the tracks "B's Blues", "Theme From Zoltan", "Mandingo", "Up Jumped Spring", "Uschimaus", "Atlanta Walk", "Makatuka", "New Orleans", "Tragic Magic", "Sconsolato", and a studio version of "A5".

Tomorrow International, 1977. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A soulful and ambitious session from saxophonist Nathan Davis – a funky little gem that's got a lot more to offer than just a simple tribute to Dr King! Nathan penned the set in a mode that's expanded from most of his other albums – using larger horns and electric instrumentation to give the record a groove that's almost like funky 70s soundtrack work, but which is also offset by some shorter, more introspective tracks that feature spoken narration about King and his legacy – read by Donald M Henderson, and done in an extremely poetic way. The session's as righteous as it is grooving – and showcases a side of Davis' talents we never even knew he had – a rich larger musical vision, handled perfectly throughout! Nathan plays a range of reed instruments on the album, and Frank Cunimondo plays some sweet electric piano on the record – and singer Brenda Joyce provides lyrics on a few numbers as well. Titles include "Funk A Dilly Molly", "MLK", "Atlanta Walk", "Mean Business", "Latin Happ'n", and "New Dues". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's the first-ever full length from Donnie – a brilliant young soul singer who's been bubbling out of the Atlanta scene over the past few years, and who has only issued a small number of singles so far. Donnie's voice and style are incredible – a sweetly-crafted approach to soul that's steeped in traditions that stretch back to 70s work by Donny Hathaway, Curtis Mayfield, and Marvin Gaye – and which resonate strongly with some of the better underground NuSoul singers of today. The full album shows a lot more depth to Donnie's work than we've even heard on the singles – with a really great mix of moods and modes, all handled to perfection with Donnie's incredible vocals! Titles include "People Person", "Wildlife", "Rocketship", "Masterplan", "The Colored Section", "Our New National Anthem", "Do You Know", and "Cloud 9". CD

The vibe is maybe most like Tommy Stewart's excellent music – especially his self-titled classic album – a mode that's funky club, but never straight disco at all – thanks to lots of hip touches in the instrumentation and overall song construction, which really seems to respect the funky talents of the musicians. A killer funk set throughout – and titles include "Pay The Price", "Universal Love", "Messing Up A Good Thing", "Jammin", "Livin For The City", "Save The World", and "Party Night". CD

✨✧ VariousDJ Kicks – Kamaal Williams ... LP
K7 (Germany), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Keyboardist Kamaal Williams has given us some great records under his own name – and here, he turns in a stunning set for the DJ Kicks series – a record that's overflowing with a mix of cosmic jazz, soul, and club from some of Kamaal's key contemporaries – mixed with a few great contributions of his own! All the criss-crossing of styles that we love in Williams own music is present in his selections on this set – and there's a majestic flow that really shows an understanding of all the changes in the underground during the past decade or so – as Kamaal takes us on a musical journey through its landscape of sound! Titles include "Hey There" by Steve Spacek, "Buggin Out" by Seiji, "Sometimes" by Budgie, "Moving Up" by DJ Harrison, "Ein Kola Bitte" by Ratgrave, "He's So Crazy" by Wbeeza, "Southern Freeez" by Freeez, "Sirens" by Hard House Banton, "117 Careplan" by Henry Wu, and the cuts "Snitches Brew (live in Atlanta)" and "Shinjuku (DJ Kicks)" by Kamaal Williams.

✨✧ David Allan CoeMysterious Rhinestone Cowboy/Once Upon A Time ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1974/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two great outlaw country records on a single CD! David Allan Coe might be the scariest outlaw ever – If Waylon and Hag knew that the gates of hell were about to crack open and beckon them in they might have been as ornery as Coe. This Bear Family collection assembles the full Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy and Once Upon A Time LPs on CD for the first time – and it serves as a reminder of how so many great albums that don't quite dig their way into the public consciousness get neglected for far too many years! Tracks include "A Sad Country Song", "Crazy Mary", "The 33rd Of August", "Atlanta Song", "Desperados Waitin' For The Train", "The Old Grey Goose Is Dead", "Jody Like A Melody", "Sweet Vibrations", "Another Pretty Country Song", "Fraulein", and "Shine It On". 20 in all.

✨✧ Disco Space Funk BandJourney Through The Night ... CD
Baby Grand/Everland (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little record that's way better than you might ever guess from the title – almost more of a jazz funk effort overall, with excellent work on guitar, trumpet, saxes, and keyboards! There's vocals on the album, but maybe more in a backup sort of way – and although the cuts could work on a dancefloor, they've often got the mix of jazz and groove that you'd find in some of the funkier Kudu Records material of the time – which might have been an inspiration for these guys! The album was recorded on the Atlanta scene of the late 70s, with lead guitar from Gary Ruffin – and titles include "Get Up & Get Down", "Summer Love", "Randy's Nap", "Simple Song", and "Journey Through The Night".
