Roy AyersHe's Coming (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1971. New Copy 2 x 7 inch Gatefold (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99 23.98
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

Roy Ayers & Wayne HendersonStep In To Our Life/For Real ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $15.99
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

Roy BuddInternecine Project EP ... 7-inch
Pye/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1974. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
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

✨✧ Tania MariaFio Maravilha/Bedeu ... 7-inch
Barclay/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1975. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $15.99
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

Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1977. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99 23.98
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

Perfect CirclePerfect Circle/Hands Of Time (7" edit) ... 7-inch
Inner City/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1977. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Two rare funky gems from this obscure 70s group! "The Perfect Circle" is a fantastic theme song for the group – hard, full, funky, and plenty darn righteous – a great indie group take on some of the more polished funk ensembles of the time! "Hands Of Time" has totally tight drums at the start – fuller than a drumbreak, but with the same kind of energy – and in support of the righteous vocals from the group singing together – coming on with the kind of force that might make EWF stop dead in their tracks! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rhythm MakersMonterey/Soul On Your Side ... 7-inch
Vigor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1976. New Copy (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Two fantastic cuts from this legendary funky group – back to back on a limited 45! "Monterey" has this great bassline right at the start – wonderfully fast, and very groovy – then even more complex-yet-funky as the tune rolls on! "Soul On Your Side" is the group's calling card – another tune with really fantastic bass – and all these jazzy changes, chromatic guitar, and other elements that really set the track apart from mainstream 70s funk! 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

Tarika Blue45 Collection (2 X 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Chiaroscuro/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover)... $21.99
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

Tarika BlueDreamflower/Jimi ... 7-inch
Chiaroscuro/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
"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

Dexter WanselLife On Mars – 45s Collection (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $22.99
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

✨✧ Roy BuddDiamonds (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Pye/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1976. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1970. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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

One of the greatest blacksploitation soundtracks ever – a massively beautiful record that goes beyond any cliches of the genre, and serves up a fantastically unique batch of tracks! Chisoul arranger Johnny Pate did the music for the film – and (dare we say it?) it's even greater that Issac Hayes' work for the first Shaft film – with a depth, sensitivity, and soul that's really amazing – and which has kept the record at the top of our crates for many years. This special double 45rpm package features four tracks from the score – "Shaft In Africa", "You Can't Even Walk In The Park", "Truck Stop", and "El Jardia". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1972. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Two rare cuts from George Semper – a cat that some folks know as a funky organist, but who also produced a fair bit of hip soul as well! "Got To Find A Way" is from the rare Inner City Review album – and has these full, righteous vocals soaring to the skies – almost Staple Singers, but with a more secular message – as the bold rhythms get some nice organ lines from George! There's plenty more organ on "The Weight" – not the big hit, but an unreleased gem that follows the same groove as the a-side, but with a much deeper instrumental vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

✨✧ George SemperPretty Lady/Universe (Extraterrestrial Search Contact Tones) ... 7-inch
Pixie/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... 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

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 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. 2CD version features one CD of the songs mix, another unmixed!

Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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. 2CD set has an insane amount of bonus tracks – 28 more Duke Reid productions, and 17 more produced by Byron Smith – 45 more tracks, including work by King Sporty, Tommy McCook, The Barons, Winston Jarrett, Nora Dean, The Ethiopians, Hopeton Lewis, Alston Barrett, The El Dorados, Dorothy Reid, and many more.

A late 80s compilation of work mostly pulled from Gwen's dynamite first two albums for Island. You know the tracks from her self-titled album, Portrait and the Padlock Ep, and a number of the versions here are the Larry Levan remixes. The cuts are all solid 80s groove, but with the great fusion of reggae, club and soul that the Island tracks that Sly & Robbie were behind had at the time. 8 cuts in all: "Ticket To Ride", "Peek-A-Boo", "Younger Than Me", "Oh What A Life", "It Should Have Been You", "Family Affair", "Seventh Heaven" and "You're The One".

Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A searing set of vintage soul cuts – brought together in honor of the legendary Wigan Casino – one of the most important clubs in the UK Northern Soul scene of the 70s! For the uninitiated, Wigan was a hotbed of upbeat rare soul cuts – overlooked American goodies from both the previous decade and more recent years – often with a strong focus on deeper soul vocals, which meant some strong entries from the southern scene as well! This well-done package comes with a heavy book-style cover, notes on the club and its music – and a whopping 28 tracks in all – including "I Can't Hide It" by The Appreciations, "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" by The Ringleaders, "The Night The Angels Cried" by Johnny Dynamite, "I'm A Teardrop" by The Jerms, "Your Love Makes Me Lonely" by The Chandlers, "Watch Yourself" by Tony Hester, "Does Anybody Know What Time It Is" by Copper & Brass, "Can I Be Dreamin" by The Young Savages, "She's Fire" by The CODs, "Could It Be" by Mikki Farrow, and "Your Wish Is My Command" by The Inspirations.

✨✧ Reggae StringsReggae Strings/Reggae Strings Vol 2 (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great pair of records – plus a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is the debut Reggae Strings album – one of the most unique albums on the Trojan label during the 70s – and a surprising hit for the company too! The approach here is very unusual – as the cuts here all are earlier Trojan vocal singles that had larger backings provided by UK maestro Johnny Archey – then stripped of their vocals and presented as instrumentals! As you'd guess by the names, Archey adds strings to the Kingston rhythms – but the approach is surprisingly nice – almost like early reggae rhythms coming into play with the best of the UK sound library generation – with results that are as groovy as that description might imply. Titles include "World Without Love", "One Woman", "Let The Man Go", "Leaving Rome", "Pantomime", "God Bless The Children", and "Young Gifted & Black". Reggae Strings 2 is a set that follows nicely on the first Reggae Strings effort on Trojan – and, like the first, a package that features older vocal tracks with the lyrics stripped away, all to provide a focus on the fuller orchestrations of Johnny Archey! The approach is cooler than you'd guess – lots of nice charts that bring a bit of 70s smooth to the sound of Trojan – almost like Barry White was recording down in Kingston – on titles that include "How Many Times", "Jump Hallelujah", "Strange World", "It's Too Late", "Tell It Like It Is", "Scientist", "Jamaica Jerkoff", and "Sweet Bitter Love". 2CD set features 25 bonus tracks too – all the original vocal tunes used for the strings versions – with work by Bob Andy, The Dynamites, Greyhound, Bob & Marcia, Nicky Thomas, Danny Ray, Merlene Webber, The Uniques, Pioneers, Winston Groovy, and others! 51 tracks in all – and a nice set of notes.
