ChakachasChakachas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Avco/Soulgramma (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
The coolest, funkiest, and most soulful set ever issued by Chakachas – a record that's way different than most of their Latin-based music – with a strong American funk vibe all the way through! There's still lots of percussion in the mix, but it's often used in ways that echo more of a pan-global and African approach – plenty of congas at the bottom, next to some riffing guitars, sweet reed lines, and some occasional strong soulful vocals. The cut "Jungle Fever" isn't on here, but the whole album definitely feels like that one – with that killer sense of spacing and percussion that makes the group really funky on that hit. Titles include the killer "Stories", plus "Oye Mi", "Bantu", "Love Love Love", "Oye Mi Guaguaco", "Soledad", and "By The Way" – as wel as the very cool "The Party". LP, Vinyl record album

ChakachasJungle Fever ... CD
Polydor/Dusty Groove, 1972. Used ... $6.99
A mad mix of Latin and funky rhythms – a 70s classic from the Belgian group Chakachas! The album's best known for its title hit "Jungle Fever" – an insane cut that features heavy drums, choppy guitar, and a stop/start action that's peppered with sounds of female pleasure! The track was a worldwide hit, and continues to be a funky classic today – thanks to a heavy sample history, and a life in playlists worldwide – but the rest of the album's pretty darn great too, and even weirder. Some tracks mix easy Euro grooving with heavy conga, others have kind of an LA Chicano funk approach, and still others throw in some mad horns to complicate matters with nice jazzy riffing. Really great throughout – and maybe one of the best funky albums to ever come out on a major label! Titles include "Jungle Fever", "El Canyon Rojo", "Chica Chica Bau Bau", "Eso Es El Amor", "Ay Mulata", "Cha Ka Cha", "Latin Can Can", and "Yo Soy Cubano". CD
(Out of print.)
Also available Jungle Fever ... LP 19.99

VariousMood Mosaic Vol 12 – Mondo Porno ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Porno grooves aplenty – and a great batch of weird and funky tunes that's one of the best in the Mood Mosaic series! The set mixes a few sex-oriented tracks by more famous artists, with others that clearly come from obscure European sources – and which really make great use of the sexual revolution sound of funk to make things happen! Sly basslines sneak beneath sweet keyboards, caressing funky drums, and setting the stage for some great whispered vocals and sexy singing! Titles include "Persuasion" by The Climax, "Mondo Porno" by The Blow Jobbers, "Lovers In Orbit" by Paramours, "Sexy Safari" by Afro Rhythm Group, "Orgiastic Ritual" by South African Combo, "Stories" by Chakachas, "Erotica" by Man, "Love" by Rita, "No One Can Love" by Bill Cosby, and "What Do You Want Now Darling" by Johannes Fehring & The Chicks.

✨✧ Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion IncRitual (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Omega/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fierce funky grooves from the legendary Nico Gomez – a set cooked up in Europe, but heavy with influences from the other side of the Atlantic – from Havana all the way up to New York! There's definitely a Latin groove to the record – one that's similar to other Gomez productions – but there's also lots of heavy funk at the bottom – with basslines that drive most numbers along boldly, really raw percussion played with a nice sense of spontaneity, and these super-tight keyboards and guitars that you might find in American funk! The mix of modes is very much in the best spirit of contemporary groups like Chakachas or Lafayette Afro Rock Band – and titles include "Caballo Negro", "Lupita", "Baila Chibiquiban", "Pa! Pa! Pa! Pa!", "One Note Samba", "Cuba Libre", and "El Condor Pasa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Indie exclusive pressing on red vinyl!)

✨✧ Paolo OrmiPOX Sound ... LP
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those sound library records that makes you say "wow" right from the very first note – not just some great music, but a mix of elements that show why a guy like Paolo Ormi is way more than just a musician, and also a sonic genius as well! All the instruments are familiar, but the way they come together is magical – groovy rhythms, crisply jazzy solos, and this overall palette of tones that's beautiful – on titles that are almost all upbeat and sometimes funky! A few numbers have Latin elements, ala Chakachas – and although these cuts are great, almost all of them were never issued at the time – just two that appeared on a funky 45. Titles include "No No No", "High Level", "Black Pipe", "Cocco Secco", "Gin & Whisky & Vodka", "For Please", and "You Dance I Don't". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFunky Chicken – Belgian Grooves From The 70s ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from the Belgian scene of the 70s – a really mad mix of sounds and styles, and a really revelatory set overall! Few people might use the words "Belgium" and "funk" in the same sentence – but that may well change after this sweet set gets a few spins – as the whole thing's a stunning array of groovers that not only match the best jazz, funk, and sound library tracks from other European scenes in the 70s – they also do a great job of taking on the best America had to offer too! Belgium was no stranger to soul and funk – given its fervent 60s soul collectors scene, and the nation's role as a crossroads in Europe – which left it open to plenty of influence from visiting musicians, including American artists as well. You can definitely hear all that coming into play here – as the work is nicely fresh, and very free of overdone cliches or easy references – as these guys all take the best bits that might have influenced them, and jumbled them up into something really new. The scope of sounds is wonderful – and titles include "Funky Tramway" by Mad Unity, "Sunshine Star" by Open Sky Unit, "Gimme Some More Of That" by Plus, "Funky" by Andre Brasseur, "Avenue Louise" by Black Blood, "Music & Co" by Les Helions, "Balek" by Placebo, "Librium" by Chicken Curry & His Pop Percussion Orchestra, "Top Less" by Alex Scorier, "Stories" by Chakachas, "Ostinato Bass" by Rene Costy, "Memories" by Amadeo, "Viva Boma" by Cos, "Pop In Three" by The Rapture, "Smoke" by Leo Cavallo, "Marakesh" by Hein Huysmans Kwintet, "One For You" by Doug Lucas, "Put Everything Together" by Plus, "Lord Funk" by Super Funk Special, and "Humpty Dumpty" by Placebo.
