Fatback BandKeep On Steppin' ... LP
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky rumpling bass, and enough choppy guitar to level a whole forest in one swoop! Lyrics are part of most numbers, but they're often in the bad-rapping or call and response mode of the People Music album – except for a few sweeter numbers which also sound pretty nice too! "Keep On Stepping" is a great little funky number – as are "Wicky Wacky", "Mr. Bass Man", and "New York Style". We also love the sweet soul track "Love", which has some great vocals, a great hook, and which sounds like a tune from their Feel My Soul LP! Other tracks include "Can't Stop The Flame", "Feeling", and "Breaking Up With Someone You Love Is Hard To Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback BandNjia Walk (Street Walk)/Soul Man ... 7-inch
Perception, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of their all time funky classics, with that great hard choppy funk groove that was virutally the patented trademark of this great group before they hit their weaker disco years. "Soul Man" is a funky cover of the Sam & Dave hit. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a wrinkled Perception sleeve.)

✨✧ Fatback Band(Are You Ready) Do The Bus Stop/Gotta Learn How To Dance ... 7-inch
Event, 1975. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An archetypal Bus Stop cut from Fatback – a really great groover with clavinet riffing that gives the track a great electric vibe, and chorus vocals that send the groove over the top! "Gotta Learn" is pretty great too – hard drums loping along in a spooky little groove, one that matches the feel of the lyrics nicely, and a certain golden era hiphop classic is based off this sample. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Weldon IrvineTime Capsule (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Nodlew/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
One of the most beautiful records to come out of the early 70s – a tremendous indie effort from a young Weldon Irvine! Irvine put this album together as sort of a musical "time capsule" of his generation – an effort to capture the era's thoughts, feelings, and emotions through a mix of music, vocals, and a few spoken bits – all woven together in a way that changes moods nicely, but always keeps the same righteously spiritual vibe! Weldon plays keys that are both electric and acoustic throughout – and he's joined by a very hip batch of players who include Jimmy Owens, Lenny White, Alex Blake, George Cables, and others – all working here in a very rough-edged and soulful mode. Titles include the classic break track "Bananas", the sweet vocal number "Deja Vu",and the soul classic "Feelin' Mellow" – also covered by Fatback Band, but even better here in the original! Other tracks include "Soul Sisters", "Watergate Don't Bug Me", "Spontaneous Interaction", and "I Am". LP, Vinyl record album

LakesideYour Wish Is My Command/Keep On Moving Straight Ahead/Untouchables (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Robinsongs (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A trio of classic albums from Lakeside – representing the second slice of their work for the Solar Records label! First up is Your Wish Is My Command – great stuff from the glory days of the LA bass-pedal funk era! The tracks manage to mix an 80s groove and soul without sounding cloying, and the band's vocals are always better than we remember them – with a strong harmony sound in the best moments that keeps things real. Tracks include "Your Wish Is My Command", "The Urban Man", "I'll Be Standing By", "Special", and "Magic Moments". Keep On Moving Straight Ahead is a really well-titled album from the mighty Lakeside – as the record makes you think that the group were going to keep on going for many years – working in their own unique version of earlier funk modes – almost a tightening up of the Funkadelic style of the late 70s! The basslines are very much in charge, but like the George Clinton groups, they also have a great way of really bringing everything together at once – sly vocals, riffing guitar, sweet keyboards, and everything else that comes to groove – all hitting right on the money on titles that include "It's You", "Be My Lady", "All For You", "Anything For You", and "We Want You (On The Floor)". For Untouchables, the gangster image on the cover might be a tipoff to the sound – as Lakeside help forge the roots of g-funk with their classic bass-heavy sound on the album! The record's great – every bit as funky as previous Lakeside work in all the right parts, but also showing a greater development of the group past their funk roots – able to mix mellower moments with groovers, at that sublime level that Fatback hit when the 80s began! There's plenty of greatness here for everyone – and titles include "Real Love", "Untouchable", "So Let's Love", "Turn The Music Up", and "Raid". Bonus tracks include "Keep On Moving Straight Ahead (12" version)", "Raid (7" version)", "We Want You On The Floor (7" version)", "Turn The Music Up (inst dub)", and "Turn The Music Up (7" version)".

VariousAce 30th Birthday Sampler – Soul & Funk ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $6.99
Rare soul and heavy funk – all served up by one of the greatest labels going! It's hard to believe that Ace Records got their start some short 30 years ago – because for most of that time, we've come to trust the label more than anyone else for taking us back to the best older music of the 20th century. And while Ace was initially known for their reissue work in the R&B and rock n roll fields, over the past decade or so, the company's really taken center stage in funk and soul – with dozens and dozens of great CDs that have become huge Dusty Groove sellers over the years. This 20 track set is a low-priced dip into the best that Ace has to offer in the funk and soul fields – and honestly, although most of this stuff was issued elsewhere on Ace, the collection's still got a freshness that matches most of their full-priced CDs. Titles include "Brother Ratt" by Dave Hamilton, "Make Me Yours" by Betty Swann, "Hey Stoney Face" by Mary Love, "Too Much For You" by Bobby Angelle, "I'll See You In Hell First" by Phillip Mitchell, "Peace Love Not War" by Johnny King & Fatback Band, "Careful Man" by John Edwards, "Soul Feeling (part 1)" by Eddy Giles, "Got To Get Me A Job" by Ann Alford, and "I Can't Take It Any More" by The Persians.

✨✧ VariousSpring NYC Soul ... CD
Spring (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A fantastic look at the Spring Records label in New York – a company that had a few big crossover hits in the 70s, but also issued a lot more rare and obscure material over the years – with a long legacy that even hit the early years of the old school scene! One of Spring's great contributions was finding a way for fast funk groups to shift into a disco mode when the earliest years of the clubs got going – but there's also a lot more going on here too – including some great deep soul ballads, warm midtempo steppers, and cuts that point the way towards the modern soul generation on the rise. The package also features six never-issued cuts, alongside some well-chosen and overlooked Spring Records gems – all put together with the usual strong notes and excellent sound we love from Ace/Kent! Titles include "If We Get Caught I Don't Know You" by Prince Philip Mitchell, "Falling In Love" by Victor Tavares, "Save The Best For Me" by The Determinations, "Do You Feel Me" by Act I, "I'm The Other Half Of You" by Maxine Weldon, "If You Could Turn Into Me" by The Fatback Band, "Magic's In The Air" by Ronnie Walker, "Hold On" by Ray Godfrey, "If You Say You Love Me" by Us, "The Storm Is Passing Over" by Jackie Verdell, "Beauty" by The Joneses, "Kill The Monster" by Flower Shoppe, "I Ride Alone" by The Internationals, "Get Right" by Richard Barbary, "Daddy's Coming Home" by Prince Harold, and "Of Your Life" by Vernon Brown.
