Crown Heights AffairDo It Your Way (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A record that ended up in more than a few 70s record collections because of its sexy cover image – but a set that's even better when you get down into the grooves – thanks to massively funky work from Crown Heights Affair! The group are wonderful here – upbeat and quick-stepping, but still filled with razor-sharp funk energy – at a level that's similar to Brass Construction or BT Express – with no fluff at all, and none of the kind of too-extended sloppy musicianship you were getting from the studio disco groups. The whole thing's got a rock-solid vibe that was first forged in the funky 45 generation, then kicked up for the 12" years – including the group's harmony vocals, which still have a great indie vibe. Titles include "Sexy Ways", "Dancin", "Far Out", "Music Is The World", "Love Me", and "Searching For Love". Also includes the nice funky funky "French Way", which has some great moogy parts! CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Dancin (special 12" disco mix)", and original single mixes of "Dancin", "Love Me", and "Far Out". CD

Crown Heights AffairSure Shot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Octave (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A smooth later groover from Crown Heights Affair – a lot more 80s sounding than the group's classic work, but in a way that's actually totally great! CHA were never shy of hitting a mainstream sound – and early in the group's career, they traded harder funk for smoother disco – making a move that suited them well in later years. This set's got a brilliant sheen that really works wonderful for the group – tight production from Bert DeCoteaux in a style that's almost an update of earlier Philly modes – mature and sophisticated on the vocals and use of strings, but also with a funkier undercurrent at the bottom to keep with a New York De-Lite kind of sound. Titles include "You Gave Me Love", "Sure Shot", "I Don't Want To Change You", "You've Been Gone", "Use Your Body & Soul", and "Tell Me You Love Me". CD features three bonus tracks – 7" single mixes of "Sure Shot", "You've Been Gone", and "You Gave Me Love". CD

VariousKeeping The Faith Vols 1 & 2 – 28 Stompin Northern Soul Classics & 21 Modern Soul Classics ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
An excellent collection of rare soul groovers – one of those UK packages that are put together as a memory of their own great Northern Soul scene, but which has equal appeal to any fan of rare and unusual American soul! The set list is great – and there's maybe a nicely wider range of styles here than on the kind of Northern Soul sets that follow in a stricter Detroit-inspired style – as there's echoes of funk, some key 70s numbers, and even a few British tracks that sit wonderfully next to the US songs. The set's divided up into two modes – CD1 features 28 60s Northern Soul tracks, and CD2 features 21 numbers from the 70s – titles that include "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels, "You Baby" by Jackie Trent, "Pick Up My Toys & Go Home" by The Devonnes, "Baby You've Got Me" by The Sapphires, "When Love Slips Away" by Margo & The Marvettes, "That's What Mama Say" by Leonard Whiting, "Check It Baby" by Willie & The Mighty Magnificents, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Playthings, "Ain't No Soul Left In These Ol Shoes" by Kenny Bernard, "Ain't Nothin But A Houseparty" by The Show Stoppers, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Alan Bown Set, "The Real Thing" by Kim Davis, "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summers Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Dreaming A Dream" by Crown Heights Affair, "On The Real Side" by Larry Saunders, "Something Fishy Is Going On" by Universal Mind, "Forget That Girl" by Jeannie Napoli, "I Got The Need" by The Moments, "My Man Is On The Way" by Rhetta Young, "Beautiful Woman" by Derek Martin, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "I Want To Give You My Everything" by Carl Douglas, "Country Girl" by Soul Train Gang, "Gee Baby" by The Festivals, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, and "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy.

✨✧ VariousDe-Lite 45s – DJ's Choice 1969 to 1976 – Selected By Daisuke Kuroda ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of funky 45s from the De-Lite family of labels – most of which were never issued on any sort of full-length album! In addition to singles issued by De-Lite – best known as the key home of Kool & The Gang – the set also features tracks from the related Vigor and Red Coach labels – two excellent east coast imprints that were filled with funky combos who were just bursting with talent – very much tuned to the fast-funk styles that exploded in the years before disco! Titles include "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "How Do You Feel" by The New Cymbals, "RRAWJ" by Reggie Sadler Revue, "Stand Up (part 2)" by Maskman & The Agents, "Funky Generation" by Everyday People, "Spread The Word" by Yvonne Daniels, "Hard To Handle" by Dennis Robinson, "I Smell Trouble" by Johnny De'Vigne, "Lady" by Shalong, "Far Out" by Crown Heights Affair, "Jackie" by Mebeus, "Party Music" by Pat Lundi, "Be Real" by Tomorrow's Edition, "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "LC Funk" by The New Cymbals, "Mboga Chakula" by Pazant Brothers, and "My Baby's Coming Home To Stay" by Janice Saddler.

DJ Spinna takes on the catalog of the mighty De-Lite Records – pulling together key cuts from the label's second chapter, to create a non-stop mix of soulful club music that runs for nearly 80 minutes in length! Most of the music here follows in the best club traditions of Kool & The Gang – the label's most famous act – and Spinna does a great job of keeping the integrity of the cuts, while still creating just the right sort of space to let them effortlessly flow together! Titles include "Color Blind" by Motivation, "I'm Gonna Put A Spell On You" by Leon Bryant, "I Don't Want To Change You" by Crown Heights Affair, "Melodies" by Made In USA, "You've Got To Keep On Bumpin" by Kay-Gees, "Music Is The Word" by Crown Heights Affair, "Casanova" by Coffee, "Reaching" by Dazzle, "Burn Me Up" by Kay-Gees, "Music Is The Message" by Kool & The Gang, "Get Down" by Kay-Gees, and "Galaxy Of Love" by Crown Heights Affair.
