VariousLove Saves the Day – A History Of American Dance Music Culture 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Reappearing (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A great little collection of unusual grooves – put together by author/dancefloor historian Tim Lawrence, and very much in the same spirit as his groundbreaking book of the same title! As with some of Lawrence's best work, the collection goes way past the obvious, and starts the clock at a time long before the disco years – really showing the variety of unusual rhythmic contributions that were bubbling under before breaking into the mainstream. Titles on the 2CD set include "Hum Along & Dance (uncut version)" by Jackson 5, "Land Of Make Believe" by Chuck Mangione, "Dibwe Diambula Kabanda" by Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin, "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose" by James Brown, "It's Time To Go Now" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "We All Need Love (12" version)" by Domenic Troiano, "Don't Knock My Love (parts 1 & 2)" by Wilson Pickett, "Welcome To The Club" by Blue Magic, "Above & Beyond (12" version)" by Edgar Winter, "New York City" by Miroslav Vitous, "Fancy Dancer (12" version)" by Twennynine with Lenny White, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Leaving This Planet" by Charles Earland, "Prophecy" by Margie Joseph, "I Can't Fight Your Love" by The Modulations, and "If You Want To Try Love Again Remember Me" by Laura Lee".

✨✧ Sunburst BandJoey Negro & The Sunburst Band – The Remixes ... CD
Z Records (UK), 2009. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Soaring soul from the Sunburst Band – a 2CD set that's almost even more groove-heavy than some of their previous records! The package offers up a wealth of all those hard-to-find Sunburst cuts that showed up on expensive import singles over the years – presented here in a nicely-priced package that's bound to fill up plenty of holes in your record collection, especially if you dig these guys as much as we do! As on their main releases, Joey Negro's done plenty to ensure a classic club sound throughout the set – lots of 70s disco and 80s dancefloor elements bubbling together in a warmly sunny groove that definitely lives up to the group's name. Remixes are never too overdone – often just set up to augment a specific twist or element in a tune – and titles include "Man Of War (Henrik Schwarz mix)", "Sitting On Top Of The World (DJ Meme mix)", "He Is (Joey Negro club)", "Everyday (Cool Million retr-o-matic mix)", "Our Lives Are Shaped (Grant Nelson mix)", "Journey To The Sun (Milton Jackson mix)", "U Make Me So Hot (Yam Who mix)", "After Dusk (Joey Negro ext mix)", "Fly Away (Audiowhores mix)", "Far Beyond (Recloose mix)", "Turn It Out (IG Culture mix)", and "Man Of War (Idjut Boys mix).

VariousBrazilian Beats Vol 5 ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2004. Used ... $3.99
The always surprising, always funky, always great Brazilian Beats series goes one volume deeper! The far-reaching tendencies of Brazilian Beats never fails to impress, and nearly overwhelm. Number 5 keeps the contemporary club and dancefloor scheme well out front, with appearances by many of the gods and goddesses of Brazilian musical culture like Elis Regina and Mario Castro Neves on the set, younger innovators like Bossa Tres, and a slew of talents that introduce some really incredible breakbeat and hip hop influences! It takes a special track list to seamlessly string elements of bossa and samba with such seemingly disparate contemporary club sounds – but that's why we keep following these compilations, isn't it? 18 tracks in all: Tejo, Black Alien & Speed "Follow Me Follow Me (Sao Benitez Radio Edit)", Stereo Maracana "Freestyle Love", Jorge Ben Jr. "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", Edson Frederico "Bobeira", Marku Ribas "Zamba Ben", Marcelo D2 "A Maldicao Do Samba", Jackson Do Pandeiro "Eu Balanco (Beatfanatic Rework)", Bossa Tres "Imprevisto", Mario Castro Neves & Samba S.A. "Candomble", Elis Regina "Ye Mele", Jorge Ben "Xica Da Silva", Sasso "Tudo Bem" and MUCH more! CD

✨✧ Donna SummerShe Works Hard For The Money (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Culture Factory (France), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the last great pop records from Donna Summer – thanks to super huge radio and video play for the title cut – and to a huge amount of tuneful tracks put together by producer/arranger Michael Omartin! By this point, Summer isn't trying to fool anyone that she's a deeper soul artist – and has really relaxed into a reworking of her previous 70s disco mode – a catchier, more crossover-pointed style that kept Donna's fire going a lot stronger than most of her club diva contemporaries from the decade before. Titles include "She Works Hard For The Money", "Woman", "Stop Look & Listen", "Tokyo", "People People", and "I Do Believe". CD

Julie CokerLife In The Limelight – Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976 to 1981 ... LP
Kalita, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
Classic tracks from the short-but-strong music career of Julie Coker – a huge figure in Nigerian culture, both for her work onscreen and off! Coker recorded a handful of records at the end of the 70s – right at the height of her career – and the tracks here are from two of the three from the time – the albums Tomorrow and Ere Yon. Ere Yon is a very compelling take on more traditional modes of the time – a bit highlife, but often nicely stripped-down, and with these occasional keyboard parts that give a cool spacey sound to the whole thing – a mode that works perfectly with Coker's strong vocal range. The music on Tomorrow is from a few years later, and has a warmer, clubbier vibe – a bit more of the Lagos disco promised in the title, but again handled in a way that's still very unique. Titles include "Iyo Re", "Elelemi", "Ere Yon", "Re Hese", "It's All For You", "Sogio", and "Gossiper Scandal Monger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Geraldo PinoBoogie Fever ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Late 70s work from Geraldo Pino – the artist who was credited as being one of the first musicians to bring the styles of James Brown to play in West Africa – still grooving hard here at the other end of the decade! The album's got a clubby vibe in parts – the "boogie" that you'd expect from the title – but like some of the best Nigerian efforts of this time, there's a very freewheeling interpretation of the style – so that things are often plenty offbeat, even when you think they're heading into familiar territory – filled with the criss-crossing of rhythms and cultures we love in Pino's other music, and recorded with a very gritty production style overall! The whole thing's plenty damn funky – in a way that matches the best energy of some of the more underground New York club 12" singles of the period – and titles include "Ganja", "Shake Shake Shake", "African Hustle", "Dance For Love", and "Boogie Fever".

Space CatsSomething New ... LP
Rejoice/Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
Weird and wild work from The Space Cats – a funk group from the clubbier years of the South African scene – but who work here in a lean style that's very much their own! The group's led by a bassist, and has some fantastic basslines right up front in the mix – driven by both drums and percussion, and layered with keyboards that are often very basic and hypnotic – not the electro modes of bigger, tighter acts of the time – but instead often this very thin current of electricity in the middle, sounding equally great on the instrumental and vocal tracks in the set! Most of the tunes are a click or two slower than the usual clubby work of the time, too – which further adds a unique quality – and titles include "Mother Earth", "Your Eyes Are So Sad", "Masambeni", "The Dead Of Night", "Something New", "Mystery", and "Ukhamba".

SparkleSparkle ... LP
Jam Sessions/Cultures Of Soul, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
A fantastic disco album from the late 70s – obscure, but with a very funky pedigree, and one that includes musical ties to earlier groups The Skullsnaps and Wood Brass & Steel! The instrumentation here is a bit like the latter – well-crafted ensemble funk with a deeper, more jazzy sophistication than you might expect – topped with very soulful vocals from the Sparkle trio, who have a depth that's way stronger than most other female club acts of the time – the sort of range that could have also been singing deep soul a decade before. The instrumentation is wonderfully sharp, and way more than the usual disco or club – and titles include "Let Yourself Go", "You", "Disco Madness", "Dabooza", "The Rock", and "Down The Way" – plus the cool cosmic instrumental "Six Million Steps" by Rahni Harris!

David WaltersSoleil Kreyol ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99
A really great project from singer David Walters – a set that tries to reimagine a 21st Century creole culture – linking diaspora roots into a new sort of groove, all with plenty of help on production from Bruno Patchworks! There's a warmth to most of these tracks that draws us in right away – and although some rhythms are clubby, the spirit here is different than earlier sort of projects along these lines by Osunlade or some of his contemporaries – as instead of the beats, the lyrics go first, and everything else follows – with Walters really setting a different tone for each track, as he moves between cultural roots and references, while Patchworks helps find the right focus with his instrumentation and production. The set features guest appearances from Seun Kuti and Ibrahim Maalouf – and titles include "Fo Bouger", "Bwe Dlo", "Manye", "Krye Mwen", "Mama", "Musik", "Pa Le", "Abo", "Soleil Kreyol", and "Mesi Bondye".

Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s/2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 24.98
Think disco sounds only hit the dancefloors in the 70s? Think again – because this killer collection brings back a whole host of club-sounding gospel tunes from the time – proving once again that soul and gospel records have always gone hand in hand over the years! The vibe isn't mainstream disco, the kind you'd hear on the charts – and instead is the hipper side of upbeat styles – the funk and well-crafted rhythms used by some of the better indies during the disco generation, and that great run of underground club styles in the early 80s too! The righteous message of most of these tracks makes them pretty darn spiritual – and the whole thing almost feels like a precursor to some of the more uplifting soulful house of the past decade or so. There's loads of surprises here – so many cuts we'd never heard before – and titles include "You" by Gloria Griffin, "Faith Is The Key" by Enlightenment, "One More Chance Lord" by Delores Fuller, "No Greater Love" by The Testimonial Singers, "Give Your Best To The Master" by Shirley Finney, "Trouble Don't Always Last" by Masters Of Music, "Free Spirit" by Betty Griffin, "Jesus Is Going Away" by The Inspirational Souls, "Nowhere To Run" by The Gospelaires Of Dayton Ohio, and "What Kind Of Man Is This" by Enlightenment. Also features a few remixes – "Thank You Jesus (Steve Cobby rmx)" by Gospel Ambassadors, and "Trouble Don't Always Last (Rahaan edit)" by Masters Of Music. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGreg Belson's Divine Disco Vol 2 – Obscure Gospel Disco 1979 to 1987 ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A pretty fantastic selection of rare disco tracks from the American underground – all of them infused with a spiritual message, but served up with grooves that go head to head with some of the best underground club of the time! The mix of positive energy and upbeat grooves is wonderful – and if you've ever heard the Clark Sisters club classic "You Brought The Sunshine", then you'll definitely know the spirit of these tunes! If you're worried about the message being one that you're not into, don't – because there's sort of a universal spirit going on here – one that gets past conventions of the church, and which really goes for a general uplifting message that's totally great – almost a precursor to some of the positive house in more recent decades. And speaking of house, there's less of that here than you'd expect – as most of the instrumentation and production are strongly in the best New York underground modes from the disco years – with less of any 80s or electro soul elements. Titles include "I Believe" by Calvin B Rhone, "Imitations" by Johnson Family Gospel Singers, "Change" by Wisdom, "On That Other Shore" by Harrison Jones & The Voices Of Harmony, "I've Been Converted" by The Converters, "Ain't No Way To Do Wrong" by New Creation, "Take It To The Streets" by Prophecy, "Let The Lord Come In Your Life" by Wisdom, "Keep The Fire" by Paradise, and "Jesus Is On The Mainline" by Mr Jesse R McGuire.

✨✧ VariousTokyo Nights – Female J-Pop Boogie Funk 1981 to 1988 ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, 1980s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great look at the bright world of female soul in Japan during the 80s – a time when the nation was hitting some of its greatest heights of the postwar years – and was coming up with a magical musical groove to follow! While disco reigned in American clubs in the late 70s, the style really took off in Tokyo during the following decade – maybe mixed a bit with European and 80s club styles, but still unabashedly as upbeat and bubbling as American work of previous years – all to showcase a range of female singers whose style really matches the groove! The music takes off a bit from that shift into soul by Japanese jazz singers in the 70s – but is much farther than that mode overall, especially once the beats and keyboards get going. The package does a great job of being faithful to this legacy – and includes notes on each song and artist, along with album covers too. Titles include "Wanna Kiss" by Hitomi Tohyama, "Dancin" by Junko Ohashi, "Dress Down" by Kaoru Akimoto, "I'm In Love" by Aru Takamura, "Broken Eyes" by Mariko Tone, "TNT" by Rie Murakami, "Love Is A Work Of Mind" by Ra Mu, "Mystical Composer" by Kikuchi Momoko, and "Sky Restaurant" by Yumi Seino.

✨✧ VariousDisco (Not Disco) – Left Field Disco Classics From The New York Underground (3LP set) ... LP
Strut (UK), 2000. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection – an important re-investigation of the unusual mix of sounds and styles on the New York scene in the years after disco – a time when funk, punk, hip hop, and art were all colliding at once – providing a really fresh antidote to the staid sounds of Studio 54! The "disco" in the title should be taken lightly – as these cuts didn't play at the slick uptown dance spots – but were instead the soundtrack for the cool spots happening downtown, as the previous loft culture morphed into clubs, in this very special blend of the energy of CBGB and the underground soulful dancefloors. The set list is filled with classics from this time – and titles include "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "Tell You Today (voc)" by Loose Joints, "Walking On Thin Ice (re-edit)" by Yoko Ono, "Over & Over" by Material, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Seven Seas Players, "Kiss Me Again (original edit)" by Dinosaur, "Move" by Nicky Siano, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, and "Wheel Me Out" by Was Not Was.
