Disco Soul Gold (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
The glory of disco is alive and well – thanks to a host of contemporary club talents who really help the music find a new groove in the 21st Century! The title and cover might make you expect a collection of tracks from years back – but the work here is all recent, and brings together soaring sounds from some killer singers who really bring a hell of a lot of spirit to the grooves! All tracks here are mixes handled by Nigel Lowis – which makes for a nicely unified vibe to the whole collection – as tunes bubble with a beautiful blend of upbeat rhythms and soaring strings. Titles include Lowis remakes of "Soul Town" by Ola Onabule, "State Of Mind" by Soul City People, "Can't Knock Me Down" by Chubby Tavares, "Bring It Home To Me" by Marc Staggers, "No Payne No Gain" by Clif & Freda Payne, "Sunny Day" by Hannah White, "Show Me" by McCrei, "Dance" by Gina Carey, "We Bring The Party" by The Dig Band with Dina Carroll, "What The Child Needs" by Terry Ronald, "Soul Night" by Mather & Kingdon, and "Make You Mine" by Samuel D Sanders.

✨✧ VariousUK Soul Chart Album – 19 Modern UK Soul Chart Gems & Unreleased Masterjams ... CD
Disco Soul Gold (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't let the title fool you – as these aren't the common soul tracks you'd find on the pop charts – and instead represent a great slice of the UK underground scene – soul cuts that are tight and together, but nicely far from the mainstream! The set follows in the mode of the previous set on the Disco Soul Gold label – with elements that hearken back towards more classic soul years, but given a nice contemporary spin – lean, groovy, and very nicely done – more than a few groovers in the mix, but some nice mellower moments too! Titles include "Chill" by Tilly Grace, "For Always" by Ronny Wright, "Be Free (T Groove rmx)" by Yuma Hara feat Monique Dehane, "Your Love (Nigel Lowis chicacadelic mix)" by Kenny Thomas, "Cotton Candy" by Al Lindsay, "Where Will I Go" by Miracle Thomas, "Friday Night (soulful sounds mix)" by Regina Troupe, "Fall Back (UK soul bop)" by Rai, "Can't Love You More" by Tyra Levone, "Come On Home To Me" by Show Tyme, "Best Friend" by Regi Myrix feat Lina, and "I'm There Girl (Ed's R&B mix)" by Ed The Red.

✨✧ VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs (3CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ VariousSoul Spectrum Vol 1 – Dancefloor Soul, Rare Boogie, & Soulful Disco ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of tight modern soul and funky uptempo numbers – cuts that aren't really disco, but which are smoother than the usual funk you'd hear on the Jazzman label – a really unique hybrid that's hand-picked by the mighty Fryer! Lots of the grooves here have a cool indie feel – a bit like Fantasy Records funky soul of the late 70s, and a bit like some of the more soulful club of the east coast scene at the time – and given the tightness of the instrumentation, there's often some nice jazzy touches in the mix – making some of the solos as appealing as the vocals! Most tracks here are of late 70s vintage, although there's a few bits from other years too – and titles include "People" by Elipsis", "Simple Song" by Zebra, "Life Goes On" by Freak, "Rollercoaster" by George Smallwood, "Mellow Feeling" by Barbara Lynn, "Funktown" by Nate Calhoun, "I've Got It" by Tolbert, "Party & Get On Down" by Big Apple Band, "Give Me One More Chance" by Target, "You're The One" by Kings Go Forth, "You're The Best" by Larom Baker, "What About The Child" by Gold, and "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright.

✨✧ VariousToo Slow To Disco – Late 70s Westcoast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Don't think "disco", think "AOR" – as the tunes here are all sweet smooth tracks from the glory days of late 70s radio – done in a great style that mixes blue-eyed soul with lots of warm jazzy touches! A few of the names here are big ones, but lots are lesser-known talents that labored in the farther reaches of the major label scene – artists who got lots of great studio support and access to key instrumental talent – which helped them craft laidback gems that have plenty of polish, but are still way fresher than the hits from the time! The production is superb throughout, and the instrumentation is impeccable – and titles include "Steal Away" by Photoglo, "Get It Up For Love" by Ned Doheny, "Let's Put Our Love Back Together" by Micky Denne & Ken Gold, "Deco Lady" by Rupert Holmes, "Over & Done With" by White Horse, "Liverpool Fool" by Browning Bryant, "Steal Away" by Robbie Dupree, "Spaceship Earth" by David Batteau, "Shut The Door" by Don Brown, and "Room To Grow" by Brian Elliot.

✨✧ VariousUnder The Influence Vol 7 – A Collection Of Rare Soul & Disco Compiled By Winston ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great entry in this really fantastic series – one that's turned us on to more rare club cuts than we can count over the years – and which still stands head and shoulders above most other collections of vintage dancefloor grooves! The tracks here are all hand-picked by Winston – and seem even rarer and more obscure than the previous volumes – not that quality is sacrificed for the sake of rarity, just that the tracks are amazingly fresh discoveries even for ears like ours – which have been well-trained on decades of collecting underground soul and disco! Most of these cuts offer up a nice sideways take on popular modes of the time – grooves that can be grittier or more offbeat, but in a really great way – and the 2LP version features 11 titles that include "Dancing" by Mary Gold, "Let's Do It Together" by The GTs, "Do You Like It" by The Olympics, "Can't Stop Dancin" by Jonnie Vibes Lambert, "We Are Steady Rockin" by Al Man Muntzie & The Embraceables, "More People Than Me" by Synergy with Donnell Pitman, "Sugar Daddy (parts 1 & 2)" by Betty Padgett, "I'm Human" by Lord Of Storm, "If There Is No Struggle (long version)" by Are & Be, "Get Up & Dance Now" by Bramsam, and "Build Your Foundation" by Bollyn Thompson.

Donald Byrd & 125th StreetLove Has Come Around – The Elektra Anthology 1978 to 1982 ... CD
Elektra/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s! This time around, there's an equal emphasis on soul and jazz – often with some strong vocals in the lead, but also plenty of room for Donald to stretch out and serve up the kind of perfect solos he worked out with the Mizell Brothers in the years before – modes that are continued here with some great guest help from singers and musicians who include Syreeta, Isaac Hayes, Jim Gilstrap, Wah Wah Watson, and Greg Phillinganes! If you like Donald Byrd albums like Places & Spaces or Stepping Into Tomorrow, you'll find that the sound here is a continuation of that mode – taken into the leaner funk territory that would come to play in the 80s. 2CD set features almost all the best tracks from those years, including some single mixes too – and titles include "Thank You For Funking Up My Life (12" disco version)", "Marilyn", "Butterfly", "Gold The Moon White The Sun", "Sexy Dancer", "Love Has Come Around", "Loving You", "Love For Sale", "Star Trippin", "I Love You", "Midnight", "Your Love Is My Ecstasy", "Have You Heard The News", "People Suppose To Be Free", "Morning", "I'm Coming Home", "Sunning In Your Love Shine", "Everyday", "Falling", "So Much In Love", and "Forbidden Love".

✨✧ Bunny SiglerI've Always Wanted To Sing – Not Just Write Songs ... LP
Gold Mind, 1979. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The title's a bit strange – given that Bunny Sigler started out as a soul singer in the late 60s, and continued to record well into the 70s too – yet it's also a reminder that by the time of this set, Sigler had become a real powerhouse on the Philly club scene – working as a producer and arranger for a host of other artists too! All that strong work comes to bear on this album – done by Bunny in close collaboration with Instant Funk, who provide lots of sharp-edged grooves that are heavy on guitar – and a nice change from the usual disco modes of the time. Tunes are clubby, but have lots of funk in the rhythms too – and titles include "Let's Get Freaky Now", "Simple Things You Do", "Cry My Eyes Out", "By The Way You Dance", "Glad To Be Your Lover", and "I'm Funkin You Tonight".

✨✧ Bunny SiglerLet Me Party With You ... CD
Gold Mind/Salsoul, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best of Bunny Sigler's disco albums – a classic pairing with a the group Instant Funk, and a record that helped define the second generation of the Philly groove! Bunny's still got some of the sweeter touches of earlier years, but he also comes across with a much fuller vocal range – stepping up to the grooves with a voice that's deep in soul, and which unfolds nicely across the album's longer uptempo tracks! The Instant Funk backing is mighty nice too – and really gives the album a sharp edge that sets it apart from other Sigler efforts of the period. Titles include "Let Me Party With You", "Your Love Is So Good", "Don't Even Try", and "I Got What You Need". CD also features the bonus track "Only You", a duet with Loleatta Holloway! CD

VariousHeed The Call – 17 Of The Choicest Maori/Polynesian Soul, Funk, & Disco Tracks ... CD
Vostock (New Zealand), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – and comes across in a way that's different than some of the more familiar Australian funk and soul of the same time – maybe more indie to that nation's major label polish – filled with the kinds of tracks that hardly need to answer to anyone in the mainstream – just the freaky folks on the dancefloor at a party! The tunes were recorded over the space of a decade, but almost all of them have a strong mid-70s vibe – pre-disco, but upbeat funk – with sharp instrumentation by musicians who'd clearly be comfortable playing other styles, but who often work here to back up a soulful singer in the lead. Titles include "A House For Sale" by Mark Williams, "You Can Dance" by Collision, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "That's The Kind Of Love I've Got For You" by The 1860 Band, "Mr Funky" by Inbetweens, "I Need Your Love" by Golden Harvest, "You Can Do It" by Tina Cross, "Disco Queen" by Mark Williams, "Don't Give Your Life Away" by The Pink Family, "There's A River" by Sonia & Skee, "Mr Music" by Ticket, "She's Knocking At My Door" by Johnny Rocco Band, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Yandall Sisters, "Total Man" by The Totals", and "Who Do We Think We're Fooling" by Larry Morris.

VariousShake What You Brought! – Soul Treasures From The SSS International Label (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
SSS/Sundazed, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Southern soul killers from one of the most overlooked labels in the business – Nashville's mighty SSS International, home to as much great work in the late 60s as most labels from Memphis or Muscle Shoals! SSS was headed up by producer Shelby Singleton – who had a great ear for up-and-coming music, and used the imprint as a venue for some of the less-discovered southern soul acts that were burning up the scene in the shadows of the bigger-name acts cracking the charts at the end of the 60s. There's an approach here that brings together the best sounds from all scenes in the south – partly because Singleton's experience as producer really got him out and around the industry, but also because the label released work cut in other studios from different cities. This 20 track set is one of the first we've seen devoted to the full depth of the label's catalog – all gems recorded within a short 4 year span, but of surprisingly high quality throughout! Titles include "Natural Soul Brother" by Danny White, "Soul Butter" by Johnny Barfield & The Men Of SOUL, "I Wanta Make Her Love Me Till The Cows Come Home" by Jake Porter, "Shake What You Brought With You (part 1)" by Mr Jamo, "There's A Break In The Road" by Betty Harris, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Proud Woman" by Johnny Adams, and "Soul Ranger" by Clifford Curry.

Bureau B (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky frauleins galore – a host of groovy German singers, plus a few American expats, all working in a mad range of deeply-grooving styles! Music here runs the gamut from mod late 60s swingers to German soul of the 70s – and overall, most of the cuts in the package are completely new to our ears –a really fresh selection of music that lies somewhere between In-Kraut and Disco Deutschland territory – which makes this collection every bit as revolutionary, and essential, as those gems from a few years back! The package features complete notes in English – which is a great help to navigate some of the unfamiliar artists – and titles include "Berlin" by Heidi Bruhl, "Sagen Sie Frau Zimmermann" by Topsy Kuppers, "Die Grune Witwe" by Su Kramer, "Der Wassermann" by Renate Kern, "Special Agent" by Jane Morel, "Kleiner Mann" by Sandra Hass, "Sunburst" by Roberta Kelly, "Das Zahlenspiel" by Olivia Molina, "Ich Wart Auf Die Nacht" by Hildegard Knef, "Goldene Insel" by Shirley Thompson, and "Irre Gut" by Lotte Und Leherb.

✨✧ Kenny SmithOne More Day ... CD
Shake It, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous discovery in soul – rare work by Kenny Smith, a key local talent on the Ohio scene! Kenny worked in the Cinncinnatti scene during the late 60s and early 70s – recording singles for a variety of labels, including bigger names like Chess, Fraternity, and RCA – as well as much smaller imprints that include Lena, Goldspot, Kogan, and Counterpart – all of which are included here in this amazingly comprehensive set! Over that time, Smith's sound grew from simple soul into more complicated funk – picking up all the best elements of the time as the years rolled on, but never resorting to simple copycat modes, and always sticking with his own bag. Kenny wrote, sang, and produced most of the work here himself – either solo, or with groups that include The Loveliters, Maximum Feeling, The Niteliters, or The Fox Fire Band. Really great stuff through and through – 18 tracks that should prove that some of the best soul you'll find is past the bigger chart names of the 60s and 70s! Titles include "Lord What's Happened", "My Day Is Coming", "Here Comes The Law", "Same Old Story", "Deep In My Heart", "Skunkie", "Nightbeat", "Go For Yourself", "Foxfire", "Go For Your Bad Self", "Everybody Knows I Love You", "One More Day", and "We Have Each Other".

✨✧ George Jackson & Dan GreerGeorge Jackson & Dan Greer At Goldwax ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing soul duo from the Memphis scene of the 60s – George Jackson and Dan Greer, who artists who are perhaps best known as songwriters and producers – but who recorded some wonderful work together at the start of their careers! Only a handful of the Jackson/Greer singles were ever issued by the small Goldwax label – which makes this collection a huge discovery for longtime fans of their music, like us – since the CD features 17 never-issued titles from the Goldwax vaults, all of which easily match the few that saw release back in the 60s! Both artists are great vocalists – and get hip Memphis backings that are very much in the best Stax or Goldwax styles of the time – and there's a depth to this music that may well have gotten Jackson and Greer the same kind of attention as James Carr on his own legendary Goldwax work. A few titles have some wonderfully spare backings – almost just piano behind the heavenly vocals, which is quite unique for the time – and the set features 23 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Attack", "It's So Nice", "A Road To Nowhere", "Fascination", "I See Sadness Ahead For Me", "I Don't Want To Be Hurt", "I'm Still In Love With You", "Will You Be Around", "To Me It's Storming", "Good Times", "Do The March", "Don't Wake Me Up", "That's Why I Love You", and "Nothing Can Touch My Love I Have For You".

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLove Sensation ... LP
Gold Mind, 1980. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark club grooves from the great Loleatta Holloway – and a record that definitely has her at the top of the disco game for the 70s! Holloway's working here with a nice variety of arrangers and producers – including Bobby Womack, Norman Harris, Dan Hartman, and Tom Washington – each of whom add some sweet little touches that let Holloway's vocals really take off, and find a space that's even more proud and powerful than ever before! Rhythms have an incessant Salsoul groove – that great approach that was often tightly funky at the core, and which really helped transform a key few singers like Holloway – taking them to the clubs, but without losing any of the depth of their roots. Key proof of this is the sublime leadoff track – "Love Sensation" – one of the greatest Salsoul tracks ever, and maybe one of the best female disco numbers too. The cut's a monster, one of the most anthemic dance tracks of all time – and it's followed by other good numbers that include "Two Became a Crowd", "My Way", and "Short End of the Stick".

Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A totally sweet set of grooves from the African scene of the 70s – and one that's a fair bit different than most of the other collections we've got on our racks! The styles here are a bit more offbeat, and a bit less familiar – not straight Afro Funk, but also not some of the popular genres of the time either – and instead often a compelling fusion of American funk, club, and disco with some very unusual local modes of expression – often with electric instrumentation that can come across in really great ways with weird production – making for unusual sounds on the keyboards and guitars. There's a bit more polish to the work than some of the rougher Afro groovers from the time – but never in a way that's ever too slick, just kind of a European mix of African roots and 70s funkier styles. 2CD set features all the tracks on the previous vinyl volumes – with titles that include "Give It Up" by Jo Bisso, "Jangolo" by Jo Tongo, "Kag Am" by Kemayo, "Africa Africa" by Ekambi Brilliant, "Black Gold" by Tala AM, "Father Time Mother Nature" by Jake Sollo, "Choco Date" by Jake Sollo, "Nande" by African Souls Band, "Mbongui" by M'Bamina, "Na Real Sekele Fo Ya" by Pasteur Lappe, "Don't Do It" by Bongi Makeba, "Get It On The Music" by Bozambo, "Tata Ngoh" by Misse Ngoh, "Toyota Fantasy (John Bryan edit)" by Miriam Makeba, "Piani" by Jo Tongo, "Aboki" by Ekambi Brilliant, and "Kilowi Kilowi" by M'Bamina.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a tribute to the legendary artist Keith Haring – as the collection's more of a portrait of the downtown New York scene in which Haring lived and worked – served up here as a fantastic blend of hip hop, street soul, and offbeat club tracks from the time! The music here is a great antidote to more familiar territory in the disco and 80s groove years – as many of these artists effortlessly combine stylistic modes with the same groundbreaking energy that Haring brought to his artwork – signaling the rise of a whole new generation, while also giving them a great soundtrack of grooves! The double-length package is wonderful – full of music that most folks might not expect together, but which really set the scene back at the start of the 80s – tracks that include "It's Music" by Damon Harris, "For The Same Man" by B Beat Girls, "Weekend (Larry Levan mix)" by Class Action, "Elephant Man" by The Girls, "Chuka Ja" by Adiche, "Danger" by Pylon, "Pak Man" by Jonzun Crew, "Bump & Grind It" by John Sex, "Jam Hot" by Johnny Dynell, "Over & Over (12" disco)" by Sylvester, "I Zimbra" by Talking Heads, "Sortie 134 (part 2)" by Art Zoyd, "Let's Do It" by Convertion, "Cut It Up High Priest" by Gray, "Love Money" by Funk Masters, "Change The Beat" by Fab 5 Freddy, "ET Boogie" by Extra T's, "Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, and "Jeffrey I Hear You" by The Girls.
