Roy AyersCoffy – Coffy Is The Color/Aragon/Brawling Broads/Exotic Dance (2 x 7 inch single set) ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1973. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99 23.98
A totally cool little record – a double 7" single that brings together 4 of the best tracks from the Coffy soundtrack of the 70s – that fantastic blacksplitation film that was Roy Ayers' entry into the genre! All the tracks are great – from the catchy funky soul of the theme, "Coffy Is The Color" – to the tight instrumentation of "Aragon", "Brawling Broads", and "Exotic Dance" – some of the funkiest numbers on the record. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roy BuddDiamonds (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Pye/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1976. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99
A very cool double 7" package – one that's filled with six cuts from the great crime film Diamonds! Heist films always provided some of the best soundtracks of the 70's, and this one (starring Robert Shaw and Richard Roundtree, and issued in the US as Diamond Shaft) is no exception! Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The Three Degrees sing lead vocals on "Diamonds Theme" – and other titles include "The Thief", "Diamond Fortress", Thief On The Prowl", "I Think I'm Being Followed", and "A Handful Of Games (edit)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roy BuddStone Killer (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Pye/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1973. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99
A special double 7" package of one of the darkest Roy Budd scores ever – designed to accompany a brutal police film starring Charles Bronson! The main theme has a nice electronic sound that's kind of like the "Mystery Movie" theme from the 70s – then the score moves into some nicely moody regions that feature spare Fender Rhodes riffs underpinned by dark orchestral scoring! Occasional beats and jazzy rhythms move into the picture from time to time, and this 2 x 7" single set features seven cuts – "Main Title", "On The Trail", "Too Late", "Down Uptown", "Final Capture", "The Old Precinct", and "On The Move". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Premiere/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1974. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Four fantastic sound library gems from the 70s – all directed by Yan Tregger, and featuring some mighty sweet keyboards from the legendary Jacky Giordano! "Rieka" has this cool swirling sound next to the beats and wah wah guitar – unlike anything else we can think of – while "O'Seven" is tighter, more familiar keyboard-driven funk in the rhythm – but still with this totally great guitar part that gets all freaky and fuzzy! "Old Timmy" has a very groovy vibe – riffing guitar right along with the rhythms, peppered by drums – and "Gost" is harder, funkier, and has some cool clavi that really comes on strong! 7-inch, Vinyl record

100% Pure PoisonWindy C Collection (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A double 7" package of work from one of the rarest soul records of the 70s – recorded in Germany by a bunch of American servicemen on leave, but with a sound that's right out of the Chicago or Detroit groove of the pre-disco years! The group's great with both the funky and soulful material – hitting hard with monster groovers like "Holes In My Shoes" and the jazzy break classic "Windy C" – almost like some of the jazzy soul albums on Fantasy from the mid 70s. Also includes a special 45 edit of "No More City No More Country" – and the track "Puppet On A Chain". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ SalinasAtlantis (Strauss Mania)/Baiao ... 7-inch
Top Tape/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
Two rare cuts from Brazilian arranger Daniel Salians – both of them all warm and funky! "Atlantis" is also known as "Straussmania" – and for good reason too, as it features the same "2001" theme that was penned by the composer many years back – but served up here in a jazzy electric version that's mighty nice – heavy on Fender Rhodes, but also filled with funkier drums and more complicated rhythms than the Deodato version! "Baiao" has lots more percussion, and a vibe that's maybe more Brazilian overall – but the tune also has some mighty sweet Rhodes, which slide in and out of soaring strings, jazzy flute, and other great touches! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chiaroscuro/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
"Dreamflower" is a beautiful cut from this legendary spiritual fusion combo – one that kind of steps out slowly, amidst Fender Rhodes and bassline – but which has this cool sparkling guitar that lights the way along the slow-stepping groove! The mighty James Mason plays guitar on "Jimi" – handing out plenty of fuzz, but in a way that's a lot more soulful and fitting the fusion mode than any Hendrix work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chiaroscuro/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Soaring jazzy genius from this legendary 70s group! "Revelation" is the kind of cut that reminds us why Tarika Blue was so different than the rest – as the tune's complicated, but still moves forward fantastically – topped with really great tenor from Marvin Blackman, and given just the right zing by the guitar of Ryo Kawasaki! "Blue Neptune" is more spiritual overall – a tune that has keyboards resonating with a soprano sax line – slow-building, and with very soulful energy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Atlantic/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Chicago group – one who could effortlessly blend soul jazz and harder grooves, in a way that's unlike anyone else we can think of! "Right On" has heavy drums and some super-sharp lines on Hammond – peppered with a bit of vocals, but soon giving way to a massive tenor solo from Clarence Wheeler! "Doin What I Wanna" has a fast-vamping organ like that's like a quick take on "It's Your Thing" – but groovier, jazzier, and with tremendous tenor and trumpet! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two funky nuggets from the rare album that organist Reuben Wilson cut with a funk group for Chess Records in the 70s! "Got To Get Your Own" is fantastic – with a really unusual rhythm, and a sweet keyboard line that dips along beautifully with the bassline and vocals! "Tight Money" is tighter and snappier – and a great funk cut too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A special four track, double 7" version of work from He's Coming – one of the rarest and greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – really the beginning of the funk years from Roy Ayers Ubiquity! This one's a totally solid mix of soulful jazz, jazzy soul and righteous funk – and it's straight up wonderful all the way through – with a groove that's hugely influential to say the least! Includes the amazing track "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", which has a slow sample bassline in the intro that's just incredible – plus groovy cuts like the spiritual funk classic "He's a Superstar", "Ain't Got Time", and "Fire Weaver". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1975. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool condensation of the legendary Mystic Voyage album from Roy Ayers – a record that really shows him at the turning point! Gone are the trippier jazz funk moments of earlier albums – and in their place are some tight grooves and wonderfully spacey soul. Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first uptempo funk numbers "Brother Green", a catchy groover with lots of clavinet, and the massive "Life Is Just A Moment", a storming 2-part number that rolls along with a pounding almost house-like groove. This 2 x 7" single set also features the great "Black Five" – a funky number that could almost be from a 70s action soundtrack! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two gems from the legendary pairing of these two great 70s jazz funk giants! "Step In To Our Life" is the title cut from one of the albums that Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson cut together – and the tune has all the edgy vibes of Roy's great Polydor records, mixed with some of the slightly tighter funk of Henderson's At Home Productions – with plenty of space for both artists to solo! "For Real" is a tune with a bassline and some great Roy Ayers-styled vocals sliding along the groove – but still plenty of jazzy touches from both of the leaders! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A special EP version of this wonderful soundtrack from the great Roy Budd – a set that's got Roy on Fender Rhodes and clavinet – plus alto from Ronnie Scott, and some cool use of percussion by Frank Riccotti – in a way that's similar to the tablas on Budd's classic score for Get Carter! This limited 7" single release features eight of the best tracks from the album – "Would You Kill Me", "Alex's Apartmetn", "Elliot's Plan", "No Longer Your Problem", "Elliot's Plan Works, "Elliot Drives To Alex", "Elliot Is Dead", and "Clever David The Note Pad". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Buddah/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1974. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool condensation of the great Slewfoot album – four of the best tracks on a double 7" single! The album's a really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black Jazz recordings with Doug Carn, than her later Philly soul sides – and Connors heads up a killer instrumental group that features reeds from Hubert Laws, Carlos Garnett, and Gary Bartz – plus wicked keyboards from Reggie Lucas and percussion from Dom Um Romao too! The fusion players are all super-sharp – and really make the whole album crackle wonderfully throughout – on a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks that include "Mother Of The Future", "Slew Foot","Chuka", and "Back On The Street". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ George SemperPretty Lady/Universe (Extraterrestrial Search Contact Tones) ... 7-inch
Pixie/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from the great George Semper – a keyboardist who's best known for his Hammond work in the 60s, but who sounds mighty nice here on two tracks from the 80s! George begins "Pretty Lady" with some sweet, soulful keyboard lines – jazzy stepping once the groove gets going, but with a nice break in the middle before things groove all over again! "Universe" is maybe even more fantastic – this track that's laidback, but funky – searching with the keyboards while the groove steps slowly at the core – before dropping out entirely to let George do some moody music on the keys! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A limited 4 track, double 7" single package – featuring most of the best cuts off the self-titled album by Tarika Blue! The group's way different than the standard fusion acts of the time – as they blend together spiritual currents that allow for breezier instrumentation – sounds that take off to the skies, while still grooving at the core – thanks to an excellent lineup that also includes guitar from Ryo Kawasaki and soprano sax from Justo Almario! The core of the group features Philip Clendeninn on Fender Rhodes and Arp, with bass from Barry Coleman and drums from Kevin Atkins – and the record's got some very James Mason-like vocals at some points, from singers Dolores Smith and Irene Datcher. Titles include "You'll Be With Me", "Love It", "Truth Is The Key", and "Charlie". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philadelphia International/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A special four track, double 7" single version of Life On Mars – fantastic bit of space age funk – and maybe one of the greatest moments ever from Philly Soul maestro Dexter Wansel! The album goes way beyond any of Wansel's other work – and blends his warm soulful styles with some of the more keyboard-oriented funk that was coming out of the Herbie Hancock camp during the mid 70s – a vibe that's every bit as electric and spacey as you'd guess from the cover! Some cuts have a bit more of a soul focus, but others have loads of jazzy keyboards from Dexter – driven on by some great drums at points too. Titles include Wansel's legendary version of "Theme From the Planets" with the much sampled breakbeat at the beginning – plus the funky "Life On Mars", and the tracks "One Million Miles From The Ground" and "You Can Be What You Wanna Be", 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two rare cuts from this unusual studio project from the 70s! "2001" is the same Strauss theme that Deodato cut for CTI – but it's done here in a version with much funkier drums, and this fast-riffing guitar that's completely out of sight – and which makes the whole thing maybe sound a little bit crazy! "Freddie's Dead" is the big Superfly hit by Curtis Mayfield – but done here as a badass instrumental, with some really moody horns instead of the vocals, and a surprising touch of harp as well! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A gem of an early record from Tania Maria – one in which she takes on the Jorge Ben tune "Fio Maravilha", but with funky drums that make things sound way different than the original – as do her tremendous scatting vocals, and jazzy piano she adds to the groove! "Bedeu" is fantastic too – quick-stepping and lively – kind of a 70s reworking of bossa ideas, but with all those fast vocal changes that Tania could bring to her best work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little package, and one that features four of the most-remembered tracks from the legendary first album by James Mason! "Sweet Power" has a spacey club groove that's just great – and "Free" is every bit as fantastic, with a soaring, righteous sort of quality! "I've Got My Eyes On You" has one of the most unusual grooves you'll hear, and a wicked female vocal – and last up is "Slick City" – a dancing little groover that has some very tight drums, and a kicking beat that won't let up! And if that's not enough, "Sweet Power" and "Free" are presented in their rare 45rpm mixes. 7-inch, Vinyl record

A pair of Roy Ayers' Polydor gems – on a limited funky 45! "Searching" here is the long album version – one of the greatest Roy Ayers tunes of all time – a slow-slinky number that builds and builds – bassy rhythms topped with warm horns, all while Roy and some singers lead up the groove, and the man himself drives the whole thing home with some fantastic vibes! "One Sweet Love To Remember" is a bit more of a groover, but still with some great jazzy changes – the kind of cut that only Roy could do this well! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A beautiful 2 X 7-inch EP featuring standout tracks from Roy Budd's legendary Get Carter soundtrack – maybe the greatest work ever from the Brit soundtrack genius! The main theme is a stunner – moody keyboards, slow funky bassline, and some totally cool tablas – rounding out the groove with a nice sort of Eastern theme. As great as a start as that is, this sweet double 7-inch does a terrific job putting together highlights to show what ambitiously arranged soundtrack it is, with lots of diverse touches that are hip, tightly grooving and perfect for such a gritty crime flick at the dawn of the 70s. Includes the harpsichord-flavored "Getting Nowhere In A Hurry", the Brit funk tune "Love Is A Four Letter Word" with killer organ grooves and vocals by Lesley Cline, and the echoey and atmospheric "Hallucinations". 7-inch, Vinyl record

"Star Children" is a righteous number that starts slow and stepping, but with a funky bassline at the core – which only gets stronger as the vocals rise, and the whole thing builds up in spiritual energy! "Help Us Spread The Message" is one of the group's trademark tunes – a cut that has an acoustic guitar moving amidst the great mix of male and female vocals – slow-burning, but with a righteous vibe that's simply beautiful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A soaring batch of disco gems, club cuts, and undiscovered nuggets – all pulled together to make a set that's even better than the first entry in this Disco Wonderland series! DJ Andy Smith and associates bring together a great array of fresh tracks from back in the day – not massive disco hits, but also not the kind of rare gems that maybe never made the cut for a good reason – and instead, the tracks here work together perfectly, and even get a few special mixes along the way by Smith and the crew, which includes a few contemporary cuts that fit perfectly next to the vintage material. Titles include "Get Up & Dance (Bad Bikini re-edit)" by Disco Circus, "You're The Best" by The Emotions, "Heaven" by The Gibson Brothers, "Dreamin" by Greg Henderson, "You Don't Know (Crissy Kybosh rmx)" by Serious Intention, "For The Love Of Money" by Armada Orchestra, "You & I" by Ronnie Jones, "Sweet Dynamite" by Claudja Barry, "Dance Freak" by Chain Reaction, "Night Of My Life" by Full Intention & Nick Reach Up with Jazz Morley, "I'm In Love" by Cela, "Love Don't Come Easy" by New Jersey Connection, "Lost Without You (Andy Smith re-edit)" by Will Sessions & Amp Fiddler, and "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor.

Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 26.99
A record that's brimming over with pride for the new musical grooves coming out of Kingston – and a rare compilation on the legendary Treasure Isle record from producer Duke Reid! The tunes here are great and gritty – almost as if Reid was finding a way to capture the energy of a sound system in the studio – with lots of booming beats, rumbling basslines, and the kind of standout instrumental and vocal passages that give each tune a special sort of hook! The instrumentals are maybe the most compelling – as they'll use a spare organ line or sax solo to craft surprisingly hypnotic sounds – which are then balanced out strongly by the soulful vocals on the other cuts. Titles include "Boom Shaka Lacka" by Hopeton Lewis & The Chosen Few, "Wake The Town" by U Roy, "Hopeful Village" by The Tennors, "The Ball" by Earl Wire Lindo, "What Does It Take" by Alton Ellis, "Sunday Gravy" by Earl Wire Lindo, "Condition Bad A Yard" by The Ethiopians, "Rule The Nation" by U Roy, "Dynamite" by Tommy McCook, and "White Rum" by Earl Wire Lindo.

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.

Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's no lie – as the young Johnny Guitar Watson comes on here with the force of dynamite – maybe even more hard and heavy than during his bigger years of the 70s! Johnny's more of an R&B singer here – and a powerhouse, too – not just a hell of vocalist, but an excellent guitarist with a very sinister groove – a sharp burst of sound that's a bit like Pee Wee Crayton, but with a more focused punch that really sets fire to the tunes – even when Watson's just using his instrument to underscore his vocals! The cuts are all very early material by Johnny – issued by the RPM, Modern, and Keen labels – including a few unissued numbers that Watson recorded with Johnny Otis – and the package also includes a few tracks with female singers – either Jeannie Barnes, Devonia Williams, or Cordella De Milo. As always with Ace, the presentation is wonderful – way better sound and notes than any of those public domain packages – and titles that include "Ruben", "Three Hours Past Midnight", "Hot Little Mama", "Lonely Girl", "She Moves Me", "Love Me Baby", "Come On Baby", "Gangster Of Love", "One Room Country Shack", "Someone Cares For Me", "Those Lonely Lonely Nights", "Don't Touch Me", and "Telephone Boogie".
