Randy BrownIntimately ... LP
Parachute/Casablanca, 1979. Very Good ... $9.99
Excellent work from Randy Brown – a great singer with a massive talent for being both smooth and deep at the same time, something we'd reserve for a rare few, like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass during their best periods. This album featuers Randy singing tracks written by Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks – who also produced the album – and the tunes are great little love songs with compelling but uncomplicated structures, in a manner that's similar to mid 70s work by Lou Courtney or Ronnie McNeir. The whole album's pretty darn solid all the way through – and titles include "Use It", "I Wanna Baby You", "I Thought of You Today", "I Was Blessed (The Day I Found You)", and "It Scares Me So".

Four TopsTonight ... LP
Casablanca, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A surprisingly great set from The Four Tops – hardly the throwaway effort you might expect from some of the other Casablanca projects of the time – and instead a really solid effort that follows strongly from the sound of the group's best moments during their ABC Records years! The vocals are sublime – just what you'd expect from the maturing group – and Levi Stubbs gets some really great moments to shine, especially on a few of the mellower tracks. But the harmonies are the key here, and they cascade with a smooth-stepping sophistication that's not unlike the groove The O'Jays were hitting around the same time too – a classy update of their older mode that really opens the Tops up to a new audience, but hardly in a way that's commercial at all. Titles include "When She Was My Girl", "Tonight I'm Gonna Love You All Over", "Who's Right Who's Wrong", "Let Me Set You Free", "From A Distance", "Something To Remember", and "I'll Never Leave Again".

✨✧ Roberta KellyTrouble Maker ... LP
Casablanca/Oasis, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Euro disco from Roberta Kelly – a set that looks like an American soul album from the cover, but which features backings from The Munich Machine and long-running arrangements from Giorgio Moroder! The record's got a similar feel to Moroder's work with Donna Summer – except that Roberta's not as strong of a singer, and sometimes gets lost, or perhaps "swept up", in the standardized rhythms of the set. Titles include "Trouble-Maker", "The Family", "Innocent", "Think I'm Gonna Break Someone's Heart Tonight", and "Love Power". LP, Vinyl record album

Lipps IncMouth To Mouth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
A classic bit of club from Lipps Inc – an album that's got the group nicely stretched-out and extended – taking them way past the simpler sounds you might know from their hit single work! Tracks here are all quite long, and feature lots of instrumental workouts over very tight rhythms – almost a mix of Casablanca disco with some of the freer modes you'd get from labels like Prelude or Salsoul – served up with lots of guitar and heavy basslines from group leader Steven Greenberg! Vocals are by Cynthia Johnson – who helped Lipps Inc become one of the first standout soul acts from the Twin Cities – and in addition to a great extended take of "Funkytown", titles include "All Night Dancin", "Power", and "Rock It". CD features four bonus tracks – all the shorter single mixes of the long tracks on the album. CD

John McLaughlinMy Goal's Beyond ... CD
Douglas/Casablanca, 1970. Used ... $4.99
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination. The first side of this album features McLaughlin in a group with Billy Cobham, Airto, Charlie Haden, Dave Liebman and Jerry Goodman plus nice Indian touches from Mahalakshmi on sitar and Badal Roy on tabla. They perform two extended numbers, "Peace One" and "Peace Two", both modal free-ish excursions. Side 2 is solo guitar, or rather McLaughlin multi tracking himself, performing number of shorter pieces, like Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" and Miles' "Blue In Green", plus "Follow Your Heart", "Something Spiritual" and more.

✨✧ Giorgio & ChrisLove's In You Love's In Me ... LP
Casablanca, 1978. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Sweetly soulful club from the team of Giorgio Moroder and vocalist Chris Bennett! Giorgio's best known for a host of famous disco sets from the late 70s – and although this album might well be ranked with the best of them, it's also got a warmer, more intimate feel overall – a mode of vocal presentation that comes from Chris' longtime love of jazz, and Giorgio's joining in on duets on a few tracks! The whole approach is almost a bit more laid than some of Moroder's other work – yet the set still has plenty of those European-styled keyboards and grooves that made the man so famous – and a few tracks here are definite disco groovers. Titles include "Love's In You Love's In Me", "Keep It Together", "I Can't Wait", "Love Now Hurt Later", "Burning The Midnight Oil", and "Let This Night Go On For Days". LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca/Big Pink (South Korea), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Great work from Kenny Nolan – the blue-eyed 70s singer whose work was always on the more soulful side of the AOR spectrum! This set's got Kenny at the top of his groove – soaring out in the best late 70s Casablanca Records mode – not entirely disco, but upbeat and grooving – while Nolan delivers the charming vocal leads that always make his delivery of the lyrics so sweet! Juergen Koppers co-produced the record with Kenny, and you can definitely hear his touches in the instrumentation – on titles that include "Maybe I'm Mindless", "Dancin To Keep From Cryin", "Ride A Wild Horse", "Motor Workout", "Wine Women & Champagne", and "Us & Love".

ParliamentChocolate City ... LP
Casablanca, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized – but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting and counterbalancing in a similar style to that heard on some of Roy Ayers' best work from the early 70s. Clinton's begun introducing a lot of elements of Funkadelic into the group – but the tracks are still short and very tight, with a focused approach to both funk and lyrics that really makes the album stand up to repeated listenings over the years. The album begins with the sublime "Chocolate City", a surprisingly political number that has these incredible jagged piano lines that echo away madly – then it rolls into other great numbers like "Side Effects", "What Comes Funky", "If It Don't Fit, Don't Force It", and "I Misjudged You".

Nice lost funk LP released by Casablanca at the end of the 70's. We don't know much about this group, but we've always loved the track "What Is Funk", which has a tight funky backing, and a sort of call and response vocal about how messed up life can be.

An overstuffed double-length set from Donna Summer – one that features some of the live material promised in the title, plus some even better studio work as well! The first 3 sides of the album feature Donna recorded live – putting over tunes with a bit more personality and almost a sense of spontaneity that we wouldn't expect – on titles that include "Fairy Tale High", "Only One Man", "I Remember Yesterday", "I Love You", "Spring Affair", "Mimi's Song", "I Feel Love", and "Last Dance". But even better is the 4th side of the record – which features the extended "MacArthur Park Suite" – Donna's masterful reworking of the Jimmy Webb classic, stretched out to even greater length than the original!

A mid 70s classic from Donna Summer – and a follow up to her huge, chart-toppiong Love To Love You Baby – and once again produced by Giorgio Moroder! The record didn't hit the commercial heights of the preceding one, though they did utilize the same sort of Euro-disco approach – and it sounds just as great to us! The first half is a longer suite of 4 tracks – "Try Me", "I Know", "We Can Make It" and "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It", and side 2 features 4 more numbers "Prelude To Love", "Could It Be Magic", "Wasted" and "Come With Me".

Westside StruttersGershwin 79 ... LP
Parachute/Casablanca, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A late 70s effort to soup up the work of George Gershwin – as you might guess from the title – part of a bit nostalgia wave that seemed to hit right as disco crashed into the mainstream! As with other efforts of this type, the sound is surprisingly good – especially from the perspective of so many years hence – and in a way, the solid grounding of Gershwin compositions really helps to give these tunes some focus, as well as a sense of care with the material. Russ Regan is the conceptual genius behind the album, and vocals are by Sue Raney on one number – plus a host of other singers on the rest. Titles include "The Man I Love/Embraceable You", "Strike Up The Band", "Rhapsody In Blue", "I Got Rhythm", and "Fascinating Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

Late 70s grooves from Brooklyn Dreams for Casablanca – with the crossover hit "Heaven Knows" with Donna Summer – but overall it'sa pretty sweet set of late disco era numbers with slow building arrangements and harmony vocals that show a love and respect for the previous couple decades of group soul and R&B. The tunes are insistently catchy throughout and the arrangements grow more grandly as the tracks groove along, with a couple of more mellow numbers, too. Titles Include "Make It Last", "That's Not The Way That Your Mama Taught You To Be", "Sleepless Nights/Send Me A Dream", "Long Distance", "Street Man", "First Love", "Heaven Knows" feat Donna Summer and more.

Overlooked later work from Leon Haywood – an album for Casablanca that continues the funky groove he started at 20th Century in the 70s! The style's got a bit more boogie in the mix, and a touch of electro soul too – more keyboards over the basslines, but used in a sweetly sneaky way that definitely holds up the Haywood funky tradition! The set includes a great remake of "I Wanta Do Something Freaky To You", re-fit with an 80s funk vibe, and almost a Zapp-ish undercurrent – kind of a nod back to the generation that Leon's work inspired. Other titles include "I'm Out To Catch", "Secret Rendezvous", "TV Mama", "Keep It In The Family", "I'll Always Be Around", "Desire", and "Steppin Out". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got the group's sound merging a bit with the Funkadelic vibe – that post-psych style of the George Clinton universe, where the groove is super-sharp, but also very long and freewheeling too – but in a way that never gets lost along its path! There's plenty of great numbers here – all with the best snapping P-Funk groove – and titles include "Agony Of Defeet", "Trombipulation", "Long Way Around", and "Let's Play House".

The set features the full 16 minute version of "Love To Love You Baby" – done as a monumental suite that dips, turns, slinks, and slides alongside Summer's sexy vocals beautifully. As with that track, Giorgio Moroder arranged the others on the set as well – along with tunes in more of a straightforward soul approach for the time. In retrospect, that was a totally brilliant approach – trailblazing on one hand, and saleable to the mainstream on the other! Other titles include "Need A Man Blues", "Full Of Emptiness", "Whispering Waves" and "Pandora's Box". LP, Vinyl record album

The work's a unified sort of story – kind of a disco opera of sorts – but more than the lyrics or the story, what makes the album great is the rhythms – full-on and non-stop, rolling strongly from tune after tune in a highly energized blend. Titles include "Once Upon A Time", "Fairy Tale High", "Queen For A Day", "Now I Need You", "Dance Into My Life", "A Man Like You", "I Love You", and "Rumor Has It". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Scott only ever recorded this one full LP – but that's more than enough, as the whole thing's a masterpiece – produced by Barry White with the best of his 70s approach, and featuring songs written by lesser-known White protege, Tom Brock! Nearly every single cut's a classic – a mixture of deep soul, mellow soul, and slight traces of funk – all gliding effortlessly together with White's stone cold production, and Gloria's instantly captivating vocals. Titles include Me, Love Me, Love Me, or Leave Me, Leave Me, Leave Me", "I Think Of You", "That's What You Say", and "Too Much Lovemakin" – and the whole thing's great! LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brides Of FunkensteinComplete Atlantic Records – Funk Or Walk/Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A prime pair of late 70s classics on Atlantic Records from Brides Of Funkenstein – a funky female group from the P-Funk empire – back-to-back with bonus tracks! The Brides are one of George Clinton's few girl-based projects of the 70s, and a group who are markedly more funk-based than Parlet! Vocals are by the duo of Lyn Mabry and Dawn Silva – but the main sound of the set comes from the tightly crafted rhythms served up by a cast of well-known P-Funk regulars – all hitting a spaciously snapping vibe that reminds us a lot of the best energy of late 70s Parliament albums on Casablanca! The tracks on Funk Or Walk, which is on Disc 1 here, are longish, but nicely focused – with less of the disco that you might expect, and more of a slow-stepping groove overall! Titles include "Disco To Go", "War Ship To Touchante", "Just Like You", "When You're Gone", "Amorous", "Nappy", and "Birdie". 2 bonus tracks: single mixes of "Amorous" and "War Ship Touchante". Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy is tremendously soulful session – with plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love". The 2 Part single version of the title track is here as a bonus track. CD

Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021 (delayed)
An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time – and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too! The record is quite different than the slick funky sound of the group's later work for Casablanca – and has the psychedelic funk sound of the early work of Funkadelic, which was also recorded during the same period. The album's filled with funky classics – including "I Call My Baby Pussycat", "Little Ole Country Boy", "My Automobile", "Funky Woman", and "Nothing Before Me But Thang". CD features loads of bonus tracks too – 7 more numbers that include "Red Hot Mama", "Come In Out Of The Rain", "Unfinished Instrumental", "Loose Booty", "Breakdown (mono)", "Fantasy Is Reality", and "Breakdown (stereo unedited version)".

✨✧ Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP + 12" ... $8.99
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way that funky soul had taken over the clubs during the disco generation – giving showcase to a whole host of new young artists, and exposing lots of mainstream listeners to soul music at a level they wouldn't have touched a few years before! Donna Summer was one of Casablanca's big acts at the time – and she really dominates the record with her classic rendition of "Last Dance", plus tracks "With Your Love" and a disco remake of "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus". Both other cuts are strong too – and include "Lovin, Livin, & Givin" by Diana Ross, "Too Hot Ta Trot" by The Commodores, "Disco Queen" by Paul Jabara, "Leatherman's Theme" by Wright Bros Flying Machine, "Floyd's Theme" by Natural Juices, and "Find My Way" by Cameo. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeves. Cover has a small split on the top seam and some light wear.)

One of the deepest Soul Heaven sets to date – a 3CD package that features 1 disc mixed by DJ Spen, 1 disc mixed by Osunlade, and 1 disc of bonus unmixed tracks!

✨✧ VariousHabibi Funk – An Eclectic Selection Of Music From The Arab World ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Get ready to have your mind completely blown – because this compilation is one of those completely rare ear-opening experiences that will let you know that there's a hell of a lot of music in the world that you've never heard before – even if, like us, you've heard plenty of funky music over the years! The grooves here definitely live up to the title – as they're completely funky throughout, and in ways that are plenty appealing to fans of Anglo funk, but which have all the Mideast touches you'd expect in the instrumentation – a mad mix of east and west, sacred and secular, with the kind of completely unique vibe that will grab you like the first time you heard Ethiopian soul or Turkish rock! We'd honestly never heard most of this music before – and even though we've dug previous releases on the Habibi Funk label, this namesake set is the moment when they really knock it out of the park, and let us know that they're on to something completely brilliant. Comes with a great set of note, which help the uninitiated like us – and titles include "Casablanca Shuffle" by Belbao, "Wang Dang" by Bob Destiny, "Bsslama Hbibti" by Fadoul, "Sah" by Al Massrieen, "Soul Brother" by Dalton, "Al Asafir" by Kamal Keila, "Rouhi Ya Hafida" by Mallek Mohamed, "La Coladera" by Freh Khodja, "Tape 19.11" by Ahmed Malek, "Ayonha" by Hamid El Shaeri, and "Games" by Samir & Abboud.
