✨✧ Bar-KaysBlack Rock/Gotta Groove ... CD
Stax, 1968/1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 killers from The Bar-Kays – a heavy funk spectacular all the way through! First up is Gotta Groove – amazing work from the new version of The Bar-Kays – a group who reformed to become a combo as heavy as any of the best funky groups from Detroit, LA, or New York at the time! There's a style here that's a sweet Memphis distillation of ideas bubbling under in music by Sly Stone, Funkadelic, and others – taken to new territory here by a group that was already steeped in 60s soul instrumental sounds! The cuts show a great ear for simple hooks and playful instrumental twists and turns – still with a bit of the trumpet used on Bar-Kays work of the past, but more in a groove that lets the guitar step out nicely with psychedelic soul undercurrents! Tracks include "In The Hole", "Funky Thang", "Grab This Thing", "Street Walker", "Humpin", and "Don't Stop Dancing To The Music (parts 1 & 2)".Black Rock is an album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound here is much heavier on the bottom – and really fuzzes up the guitar nicely at times to create a hipper sort of soul instrumental vibe! The rhythms are quite hip too – with echoes of the experiments in soul going on at Stax in the work of Isaac Hayes and others – and the album's miles away from the work that the group was laying down a few years before! Definitely one of the hardest-hitting Stax albums of the early 70s – and filled with great tracks like "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Dance To The Music", "Piece Of Your Peace", "Montego Bay", and "Baby I Love You".

Black Unity TrioAl-Fatihah ... LP
Salaam Records/Gotta Groove, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 33.98
Amazing spiritual jazz treasure – the only album ever issued by this obscure avant trio from the Cleveland scene – a group that includes a young Abdul Wadud on bass and cello! The style is nicely loose and open, but also very different than the sound of the AACM at the time – almost more with the slowly building style that would dominate in the loft jazz years, even though these guys were years ahead of that moment. In addition to Wadud – then known as Ron DeVaughn – the group also features Joseph Phillips/Yusuf Mumin on alto, and Hasan Adbur Shahid on percussion. Both players are amazing – Shahid can go from full intensity to spacious sonic territory at a level that matches Sunny Murray – and Mumin's alto can cry plaintively some moments, and come on with the ferocity of a tenor the next. Wadud is wonderful, too – balancing plucked and bowed moments with the quality that we love on later recordings – already very well-formed here, at a time when he was attending Oberlin College. The album's one that really lives up to the promise of its cover and group name – and titles include "Birth Life & Death", "In Light Of Blackness", "Final Expression", "Opening Prayer", and "Al Nisa".

WitchSalem's Rise ... LP
Eargasm/Gotta Groove, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The only full length set issued by this underground Ohio group of the 80s – a group who've clearly learned some of the riffing metal ways of the LA bands of the period, but who make the whole thing come across with a much more homegrown vibe! The lead guitar of Ted George would have been right at home on some early Relativity release, but the rest of the group are more in a Homestead Records vibe – sonically, at least – given that singer Ace Matthews hits some lyrical modes that are right in keeping with the cover image. The mix of modes is really compelling – midwest kids caught between the two poles of the underground – and a reminder that for many folks at the time, metal and punk were often taken in equal doses. Titles include "Salem's Rise", "Hear The Thunder", "Teen Of Darkness", "Poison", "Beckon", "Lady Medusa", and "Will I See You Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby RushGotta Have Money/Camel Walk ... 7-inch
ABC, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $59.99
Funky funky Bobby! "Gotta Have Money" is a fast bluesy number – done in a fast vamp mode, one that really works well with Bobby's vocals, and gives the tune an almost sock-boogaloo style. "Camel Walk" is the real groover though – with bass picking around a nice complicated groove, very jumping in that "camel walk" mode from the late 60s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ExitsYou Gotta Have Money/Under The Street Lamp ... 7-inch
Gemini/Ace (UK), New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer harmony soul! Put aside any reservations you might have about the title of "Under The Street Lamp" – because the tune's not a hokey one at all. It's a really wonderful little number that moves along at a sweet pace – with harmonized references to hanging out in the streets at night, done with a righteous sound that's got some very very cool touches! "You Got To Have Money" has this raw guitar at the start – then rolls with conga into a hip groove that's pretty darn righteous too. The track's almost got a post-Whitfield sort of approach – but it's a bit more laidback, and really great Detroit soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

Count BasiePrime Time ... LP
Pablo, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The title's not a hokey TV reference or anything like that – but a strong reminder that the Count Basie group was still very much in their prime during the 1970s, thanks especially to the recording talents that the Pablo label brought to records like this! Most of the work here was arranged and composed by Sam Nestico – the talent who was bringing a really fresh voice to the Basie group while still keeping most of its best elements intact. The track "Bundle O Funk" features some great Fender bass in the grooves, and is arguably one of the few funky tracks that Basie ever recorded – but other tracks get back to an all acoustic groove, and include "The Great Debate", "Ya Gotta Try", "Reachin Out", "Featherweight", and "Prime Time".

✨✧ BreakestraHit The Floor ... CD
Ubiquity, 2005. Used ... $8.99
A strong step forward from Breakestra – really moving out of the deep funk underground here, but never losing the groove that got them there in the first place! The set's got a depth that goes beyond most of the group's other work – way more than just a funky cover band sort of feel, and instead a really unified approach to grooving that lets in space for stronger influences from a range of older styles of music. Mainman Miles really surprises us on vocals, coming off here with a wonderful blue-eyed approach to funk that takes us back to key rock/soul crossover moments of the late 60s – but with none of the overdone hype of that generation, and more of a funky 45 groove overall! Drums are razor-sharp and super-tight throughout – still giving most of the album a deep funk approach – and titles include "Gotta Let Me Know", "Stand Up", "Hiding", "Burgundy Blues", "You Don't Need A Dance", "At The End Of The Day", "The Getting To It", "Show & Prove", "Keep On Playin", "Recognize", "Hit Tha Flo", "Family Rap", and "How Do You Really Feel".

RCA, 1963. Used ... $2.99
Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" feeling, with some piano in the lead on many tracks, and backing by a larger group conducted by Rene Hall – a great setting that lets Cooke hit some of his most soulful moments on record from the time! The album includes many lesser-known Cooke performances – including "Trouble Blues", "You Gotta Move", "Fool's Paradise", "Lost & Lookin", and "Mean Old World". CD

Gary Davis/Chocolate StarChocolate Star – A Taste Of Chocolate – The Very Best Of Gary Davis ... CD
Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Incredible work from Chocolate Star – less a group than a record label or project name used for some excellent underground club recordings from the late 70s and early 80s! Gary Davis is the real brainchild here – keyboardist, songwriter, and main spiritual force behind the music – but Peter Brown also played a big hand in some of the initial Chocolate Star sessions too, and there's a definite P&P groove to most of this work! The Chocolate Star touch is perhaps best known on the classic club track "Got To Get Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction – but it's even better on the more obscure work throughout the entire package – an array of tunes that run from funky club to other modes that include mellow soul, old school hip hop, and even some very spare tracks that mostly just have keyboards and beats! Titles include "Gee Dee", "Last Night", "Stay With Me", "Time For Love Is Now", "Super Jake", "Got To Get Your Love", "The Professor Here", "The Pop", "Gotta Get Your Love (Kenny Dope rmx)", "The Pop (12")", "The Professor Is Space Walking", and "Gee Dee (alt mix)".

Alphonse MouzonFunky Snakefoot ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
A really unique album from funky drummer Alphonse Mouzon – a set that has him putting away some of the guitars used heavily on other Blue Note records, in exchange for a keyboard-heavy groove that almost sounds a bit like Gene Harris at the time! In addition to drums, Alphonse solos a fair bit on Arp, moog, and organ – alongside other keyboardists Harry Whitaker and Leon Pendarvis – both of whom contribute some really great work to the set. Tracks are shorter and more focused than before – and a number of them include vocals from Alphonse, sung in a rough-edged style that goes quite nice with his heavy drums on the set! Titles include the incredible break track "You Don't Know How Much I Love You" – worth the price of the album alone – and other tracks include the great "Funky Snakefoot", plus "Tara Tara", "Ism", "I've Given You My Love", "I Gotta Have You", "A Permanent Love", and "Where I'm Drumming From".

M-TetTotal Non-Stop Action ... LP
Funk Night, 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 15.00
The funky M-Tet combo add in just a slight bit of extra grease to the sound that made their debut so tight – occasional horn flairs and a bit of congas, plus maybe a bit more fuzz on the guitar! Yet the core sound is very much in that mix of organ, guitar, bass, and drums that make these guys a 21st Century evolution of the sound of The Meters – but cooked up in the Bay Area instead of Nola, where the vibe is a bit different – and there's a bit more room to play around with the groove! As such, the album balances sharp old school funk numbers with some fuzzier, freakier tunes – a good balance that never has these guys sounding too much like just another retro funk act – on titles that include "Katrin's Deli", "Gotta Be With You", "You Should See The Other Guy", "That Old Hammond Organ", "Vamp Oakland", and "Pinch Hitter".

Marty PaichRock-Jazz Incident – The Sound Of Now ... CD
Reprise/Tartare, 1966. Used ... $12.99
We're not entirely sure about the "incident" mentioned in the title – clearly front page news back in the day – but we can say that the album's a sweet little groover with a nice mod bounce – a set that features lots of great organ and piano from the mighty Marty Paich, working here with a snappy, syncopated groove that's right in line with Jimmy Bowen's mid 60s Reprise Records production style! The album's a sweet standout from Reprise at the time – mighty nice, and put together with a very solid feel – way more than just your typical 60s easy instrumental record – with some slight use of guitar to justify the "rock" in the title! Tunes include "The Cat", "Gotta Go", "The Proud Camel", "The Thing", "Promise Her Anything", and "Watermelon Man". CD

Jr Walker & The All StarsWalk In The Night – The Motown 70s Studio Albums (A Gasssss/Rainbow Funk/Moody Jr/Peace & Understanding/Jr Walker & The All Stars/Hot Shot) (3CD set) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
6 Motown albums from Jr Walker & The All Stars – all long overdue for reissue! First up is A Gasssss – a gas of a record from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that has the magical Johnny Bristol producing – giving the group this really warm, soaring sound that's totally great! Walker still serves up plenty of strong tenor solos, but there's also some vocal currents in the mix – strong leads at times, but also some nice backups too – all of which really helps to keep things soaring! Titles a nice mix of Motown covers and original material – and titles include "I Was Made To Love Her", "Do You See My Love", "And When I Die", "Honey Come Back", "Holly Holy", "Riding High On Love", "At A Saturday Matinee", and "Groove & Move". Next up is Rainbow Funk – a record that definitely has Jr Walker & The All Stars picking up a bit of funk – but in a groove that still mixes things with that warmly soulful glow the group had right from the start! The basslines are definitely up a bit from before – although not rumbling in Norman Whitfield territory – and the sax solos get a bit more space to stretch out and bite on the longer numbers, but often with a bit of backing vocals to warm things up around the edges! Jr is great all the way through – Motown's very strong answer to King Curtis – and titles include "Right On Brothers & Sisters", "Way Back Home", "Feeling Alright", "Psychedelic Shack", "Pieces Of A Man", and "Teach Them To Pray". Moody Jr is a sweet early 70s groover from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that reunites the group with producer Johnny Bristol, who always has a great way of helping them set fire to their sound! Walker and company may have shot from the gate with a mix of R&B tenor and Motown soul – but the sound here is much more in the latter, more matured mode of the label – with strong deep soul lyrics on a number of cuts, which are balanced out nicely by Bristol's fuller production. There's plenty of sax solos too, of course – and titles include "Way Back Home", "Bristol's Way", "Don't Blame The Children", "Me & My Family", "Still Water Medley", and "Groove Thang". Peace & Understanding is a record that has Jr Walker and the group stepping out with some of the righteous touches promised in the title – partly in the choice of songs on the set, which are all nicely tucked into that strong mix of deep soul vocals and saxophone lines that had become the Jr Walker groove! The set features work from a number of different arrangers – all the hipper side of Motown in the early 70s, as the list includes, Willie Hutch, Gene Page, and James Carmichael – and tunes include two great originals, one by Hutch, one by Leon Ware. Tracks include "It's Alright Do What You Gotta Do", "Soul Clappin'", "Gimme that Beat (parts 1 & 2)", "It's Too Late", and "Peace & Understanding Is Hard To Find". The self-titled Jr Walker & The All Stars album is maybe the rarest in the bunch – an obscure UK-only record from 1974, and one that has the group's usual approach warmed up by some more ambitious arrangements – a bit like the direction some of the vocal acts of the 70s were taking at the time! The production on most of the set is by Clarence Paul – and there's mostly a focus on the saxophone, not any vocals at all – which makes the set feel a bit like some of the Willis Jackson or Lou Donaldson work for Atlantic around the same time – or maybe even a bit like Hank Crawford on Kudu. Titles include "Boogie Down", "All In Love Is Fair", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Break Down & Sing", and "Dancin Like They Do On Soul Train". Hot Shot is a mid-70s stormer from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that glides along on a fuller set of backdrops than before, with Holland-Dozier-Holland production from Brian Holland returning to Motown – but in a hip 70s style that has strings and funk dancing along in a great way beneath the strong sax solos in the lead! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the real strength lies in the instrumentation – especially some of the weirder, fuzzier guitar lines and keyboards. Titles include "Why Can't We Be Lovers", "Hot Shot", "Probe Your Mind", "I Need You Right Now", and "You Ain't No Ordinary Woman". CD

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and an album that may well blow away better-known work by groups like Malo, Azteca, or El Chicano! The album's near-perfect right from the start – and brings in plenty of New York elements to the groove, thanks to the inclusion of a heady amount of jazz alongside the soul, Latin, and funk elements in the grooves! The legendary Teo Macero produced and arranged – and really takes a lot of care in the studio to focus the overall energy of the tremendous talents on the record – players who include Hadley Caliman on flute and tenor, Steve Marcus on soprano sax, Benny Velarde on timbales, and Francisco Aguabella on congas – plus the trio of Cesar, Mark Levine, and Merl Sanders on keyboards. Most numbers have this really full, flowing groove – jazzy, but with a strong emphasis on the rhythms – and often touched with some great work on guitar that echoes the Santana-inspired sound of the generation, yet never in a rock way at all. Linda Tillery sings vocals on a few numbers, but the main focus is definitely instrumental – and the whole album's great – with cuts that include "See Saw Affair", "Azucar", "Descarga", "The Devil & Montezuma", "Gotta Get Away", and "Bridges".

The record may not be a classic in the group's catalog, but it's filled with plenty of fresh tunes – both Motown originals and cover versions that are done here in a style that's got some of the heavier, more righteous styles that the Temptations were getting into, and some of the warmer more sophisticated modes that would show up more in the 70s. A real standout is the drum-heavy "My Past Just Crossed My Future" – easily one of the funkiest tunes the group ever cut, with skittish beats that really drive the groove home.

There's as much funk on the record as there is the deep soul you'd expect from the Franklin family, and Erma's vocals are incredible – equally at home with the original tracks on the record, as well as some late 60s hits that are nicely soulized by the boys in the band!

Like that better-known group, these guys have a sound that really bridges the 60s and 70s – not as heady as other Motown groups of the period, but still with some modern funky soul touches in the mix – and a real old school sense of harmonies that makes the vocals breathtaking throughout. Arrangements are by Wade Marcus, Paul Riser, and Henry Crosby – all with a great mix of the rough and the smooth – and titles include "If I Could Give You The World", "It's A Lonesome World", "One Day", "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)", "You Gotta Sacrifice", and "Yesterday's Love Is Over".

There's a careful sense of class to the record right from the start – no easygoing commercial ballads, and instead a more mature male soul approach that really shows the deeper roots of the group's three members – one of whom is David Townsend, who was part of the excellent Townsend family album on Casablanca in the late 70s! Most tunes have a laidback groove that's perfect for the group's vocal approach – which is sometimes harmony, sometimes more focused on a lead – always stepping along at a good mellow pace. Titles include "Happy", "Let's Try Again", "We're All Searchin", "Who Loves You", "You're Fine", "Girls Were Made To Love", "Gotta Make Love Tonight", and "Feels So Good".

AVI, 1981. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
T-Motion is Eddie Thomas – who sings vocals on all tracks, and also handles arrangements and production. The overall sound is sort of an 80s groove at the best moments – there's only three tracks total on the album – and the best one's "Love Light", followed by "I Gotta Have You" and "Extraordinary Guy".

✨✧ Vanilla FudgeRock & Roll ... LP
Atco, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rawer, heavier slab of Rock & Roll from Vanilla Fudge! The first track "Need Love" is a real monster thanks to the swirling bits of organ in the mix with Carmine Appice's incredible drumming that builds to a loose, but walloping close. Heady stuff! From there the band changes up pretty decisively into a loose heavy groove with psych blues touches – and it's compelling! A mix of tripped out sounds and a more streamlined, even soul-searching vibe. "Lords In The Country", "I Can't Make It Alone", "Street Walking Woman", "Church Bells Of St Martins", "The Windmills Of Your Mind", "If You Gotta Make A Foll Of Somebody" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalah HathawayIt's Somethin – The Virgin Years (Lalah Hathaway/A Moment/bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin (UK), Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of wonderful albums from the young Lalah Hathaway – plus bonus tracks too! First up is the self-titled Lalah Hathaway – the first album from Donny Hathaway's soulful daughter – an album that began a legacy that's lasted plenty strongly on its own – even without such a great family pedigree! Lalah's got a nearly-classic style in her work that's a fresh departure from many other soul acts of this period – a style that's almost influenced by the Soul II Soul or Loose Ends groove of the time, but is a bit more mainstream – and which shows that Hathaway has a lot more to offer than a famous last name. Production and arrangements are by Gary Taylor, Angela Winbush, Craig T Cooper, and Andre Fischer – and titles include "Baby Don't Cry", "Heaven Knows", "Somethin", "Stay Home Tonight", "I'm Coming Back", "I Gotta Move On", and "Obvious". Next is A Moment – an overlooked second set from the lovely Lalah Hathaway – a record that got less circulation than her classic debut, but which still very much continues the groove! As before, Lalah's working with a number of different producers throughout – changing things up a bit, but still holding strong with a quality level that's better than most of her contemporaries – thanks to vocals that are there first, and hardly need any studio help at all – and which really unify the proceedings throughout. Titles include a great remake of "Family Affair" with excellent help from BEF – plus "Bad By Myself", "Lean On Me", "Separate Ways", "Better As A Memory", "Do You Suppose", "Rise", and "Let Me Love You". 2CD set features 12 bonus tracks – including "It's Somethin (radio mix)", "Heaven Knows (7" version)", "Baby Don't Cry (radio)", "Heaven Knows (Yvonne Turner rmx)", "It's Somethin (12" mix)", "Baby Don't Cry (crybaby club version)", "It's Somethin (smoove & sassy rmx)", "Night & Day", "Let Me Love You (bed time mix)", "Dreams Don't Lie (club)", "Separate Ways (stringapella)", and "Night & Day (acappella)".

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic Hi material from Ann Peebles! If This Is Heaven is a few years later than the much loved early 70s material, but she's still working in a killer groove – and with sweet. warm arrangements from Willie Mitchell. Ann's voice is teeming with emotion and strength, and track here highlight that vibe, but she and producer/arranger Mitchell bring in a few more dancefloor ready soul numbers, too. Titles include "You Gonna Make Me Cry", "When I'm In Your Arms", "If This Is Heaven", "I'm So Thankful","Games" and "Boy I Gotta Have You". CD

Essential, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The songs of Swamp Dogg, remixed and refried for the 21st Century – handled here by a whole host of different talents who really make something new from his music! It's hard to say if these tracks are remixed on top of the originals, or maybe stripped down completely and worked up from the original tapes – as some are more faithful to the groove of the original, while others often seem to use the vocals as a way of providing grounding to more contemporary styles. Titles include "My Heart Just Can't Stop Dancing (King Britt OG house mix)", "Same Stone (Eric Kupper mix)", "Synthetic World (Bayou Soul rmx)", "Baby You're My Everything (Antonis Kanakis rmx)", "Total Destruction To Your Mind (SanFranDisko radio edit)", "I've Gotta Get A Message To You (Ursula 1000 rmx)", and "My Heart just Can't Stop Dancing (Opolopo rmx)".

✨✧ France GallBest Of France Gall ... LP
Universal (France), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest French female singers of the 60s – presented here in a classic collection of work! If you've gotta dig one gal vocalist of the Parisian scene of the time, Gall is definitely your girl – as her brash, bold style of singing really sums up the hippest, grooviest French styles of the time! Many tracks here were penned by some of the best French arrangers and composers of the period – including a fair bit by Serge Gainsbourg, who really helped Gall find her groove, and moved her from being just another girl singer to one of the more powerful 60s voices in French pop! There's even a few funky numbers in the mix, and the rest mostly have a modly snapping 60s groove – of the sort that's being heavily revived these days – and titles include "Pense A Moi", "Laisse Tomber Les Filles", "Attends Ou Va T'En", "Nous Ne Sommes Pas Des Anges", "Poupee De Cire Poupee De Son", "N'Ecoute Pas Les Idoles", "Baby Pop", "Les Sucettes", "Cet Air-La", "Bebe Requin", and "24/36".

✨✧ Kaidi TathamIn Search Of Hope ... CD
Freedom School/First Word (UK), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant album from Kaidi Tatham – deeper by far than anything we've ever heard from him, and way more than you might expect if you only know his singles from the London scene! This set's got a very strong jazz component – monstrous keyboard work from Kaidi that stretches and soars with the kind of sound you might expect from George Duke on MPS – coupled with some leaner, more rhythmic elements that show Tatham's strong ties to the London scene – yet still in ways that really break from its conventions! There's mostly a great groove to the tracks, but there's also a warmth, depth, and spirituality to the record that's really amazing – the kind of new territory that others have found on the excellent Freedom School label – a place that offers a rare outlet for creative expression in times like these. The whole thing's instrumental, and Kaidi played all instruments himself – mixing acoustic percussion with beats, electric keyboards with piano, and coming across with a sound that's far richer than the sum of its core elements. Titles include "Simiya", "I'm High", "So Amazed", "Swift Inspiration", "In Search Of Hope (part 1)", "Do What You Gotta Do", "On A Vibe", "These Things Will Pass", and "He Laughs She Cries". CD

✨✧ Allen ToussaintWhat Is Success – The Scepter & Bell Recordings (Toussaint – plus singles) ... CD
Scepter/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by Allen Toussaint – his legendary Toussaint album for Scepter (aka Whisper To A Scream) – plus some rare late 60s singles that have never been on CD before! The core album is amazing – Allen Toussaint's first big move as a solo act, and the start of some great fame that would blossom even more strongly in the 70s! This indie effort has a rougher edge than Allen's later albums at Warner Brothers – a sly, wicked slow funk approach that's a real transformation of the older New Orleans groove for a hipper, more contemporary 70s audience. The instrumentation is relatively lean – with lots of nice organ and piano lines alongside slow-stepping and vamping rhythms – and the set was actually recorded in LA, but still has very strong roots in New Orleans! Titles include the classic "From A Whisper To A Scream", plus "Working In A Coal Mine", "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky", "What Is Success", "Either", "Pickles", and "Louie" – a few of which are hip piano instrumentals! 17 track CD completes the genius of this point in Toussaint's career – by adding in some killer funky singles – including "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "Gotta Travel On", "We The People", "I've Got That Feelin Now", "Tequila", and "Hands Christiananderson".

✨✧ VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul Vol 4 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most supremely soulful compilations we've heard in years – and easily the deepest in this series to date! From the start, Kent's Masterpieces Of Modern Soul collections have been all about bringing rare gems to fresh ears, and they've really outdone themselves here. A solid majority of the tunes have never been released before now, and even the tunes that were issued back in the day are pretty darn rare! Most of it was recorded in the 70s, when the more grandly arranged soul and R&B styles of the previous decade were being honed into a slightly stripped down, though still sophisticated modern soul sound. Fantastic stuff! Volume 4 takes a baby step or 2 into the 80s, without losing sight of the 70s-rooted groove – and the titles include "No Limit" by Darrow Fletcher, "It Takes Heart" by Greg Perry, "Baby You Got It All" by Street People, "Gotta Be Loved" by Herman Davis,"I'll Laugh Till I Cry" by Toussaint McCall, "Never Felt This Say Before" by The New Experience", "See Saw Affair" by Cesar, "I've Never Been In Love" by Alvin Robinson, "Don't Matter To Me" by Billy Cee & Freedom Express, "We Communicate" by Gail Anderson, "Midnight Affair" by George Soule, "Daddy Please Stay Home" by Obrey Wilson and more. 23 tracks in all!

Candy, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard soul galore – an overstuffed CD that brings together 2 of the best collections on the mighty Candy label! The package is filled with great singles from the early days of soul – obscure singles that groove with a sound that's influenced heavily by R&B, but which also shares many of the elements of the early funk years. Great stuff all the way through, with a list of titles alone that's funky enough! Tracks include "Scratch That Itch" by Elliott Shavers & The Blazers, "Whiplash" by The Shells, "Mo Gorilla" by The Ideals, "Welfare Cheese" by Emanual Laskey, "The Dog" by Junior & The Classics, "The Chicken Scratch" by JC Davis, "The Wallop" by The Tabs, "Grandma Bird" by The Four Holidays, "You Gotta Change" by Kitty Love, "Whip It On Me" by Sonny Raye, "The Frog" by Sir Guy, "The Cow" by Bill Robinson & The Quails, "Get Down" by Harvey Scales & The 7 Sounds, "Sticky Pig Feet" by RT & The Pot Lickers, and "My Baby Likes To Boogaloo" by Don Gardner.

✨✧ Sonny BravoNew York Latin Scene With Sonny Bravo – You Gotta Turn Me On ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoking bit of Latin Soul from pianist Sonny Bravo – one of the few albums of its type ever issued on Columbia Records, but a classic cooker that easily matches the best on Fania or Tico from the 60s! Sonny's probably better known for his later work as an arranger, but here he's the pianist at the head of a very cool combo that includes Bobby Valentin on trumpet and vocals by Bobby Marin – all sung in English with very soulful backings from The Latin Chords! The approach is a wonderful blend of tight boogaloo rhythms and soul-based lyrics – carried of with a bit of additional help from Louie Ramirez, who's clearly helping to sharpen the grooves and give them even great focus. Every track's a winner – and titles include "Take A Ride", "Wrong Number", "Neath The Summer Sun", "Goodnight My Baby", "You Gotta Turn Me On", "You Turned Your Back On Me", and "The Best Thing In The World".

Roy AyersLifeline ... LP
Polydor, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
One of Roy Ayers' best-remembered albums of the 70s – a sublime blend of mellow numbers and some of his more club-oriented grooves of the time – all wrapped together with a genius that we can only describe as Ayers-like! The album's a beautiful example of the balance that Roy was striking in his work at the time – because alongside some of the more upbeat, catchy numbers, there's other tracks that are a fair bit more laidback, and almost abstract at times – a wonderful extrapolation of that sensitive Ayers blend of jazz and soul, with key emphasis on the vibes and keyboards. Titles include the massive groover "Running Away" – which you'll recognize from a key sample history over the years – and club cuts "Cincinnati Growl", "Fruit", "Sanctified Feeling", and "Stranded In The Jungle" – plus the more laidback cuts "Gotta Find A Lover", "I Still Love You", "Lifeline", and "This Side Of Sunshine".

Freda PayneReaching Out ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
It's a few years after Freda's big hit "Band of Gold", and she's recording here in a very different mode! The record is produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland, with arrangements by a number of different talents, like McKinley Jackson, Tony Camillo, and Michael Smith – and the overall sound is much more sophisticated than on some of Freda's earlier work. The vocals are especially sharp – quite mature, and almost in a mode that points towards later work by singers like Jean Carn or Marlena Shaw during the late 70s. Includes the nice midtempo groover "We've Gotta Find A Way Back To Love", worth the price of the album alone – plus "Mood For Love", "Reaching Out", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "Mother Misery's Favorite Child", and "Right Back Where I Started From".

20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent batch of funk from this obscure Chicago group! The record's their first for 20th Century – and the sound is a bit slicker than on their earlier LP for Wand – but still quite hard and funky, with some great bass and guitar grooves, augmented by lots of tight horn flourishes and rough soulful vocals. Jimmy Vanleer wrote, arranged, and produced the record – and it's one of the best from the years when he was cutting sides in Chicago and licensing them to 20th Century. Includes the funky break classic "Save The World", plus tasty funky numbers like "Gotta Get Over The Hump", "Funky Way To Treat Your Woman", "Mississippi Cutback", "Ain't Gonna Watch You No Mo", and "Pay My Dues".

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – The Dynamic Label ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a sweet image on the cover – and the grooves inside are equally dynamic too – a really wonderful collection that's easily one of the most compelling in Numero's Eccentric Soul series! The work here all hails from the tiny San Antonio scene of the late 60s – but much of the music has a sound that's way different than you might expect from Texas soul – often with great harmonies that recall the best of the east coast groups of the time, and occasionally with a few brown-eyed touches that echo the style of East LA! There's a wonderfully heartbreaking feel to many of these tracks – and the set's heavy focus on mellower numbers is totally great – and gives the whole thing a wonderful late nite sort of vibe that's usually quite hard to find in compilations like this. As usual, Numero's done a great job with the notes and history of the label – but the music alone is more than enough – a heady brew of cuts that include "Little Girl Blue" and "Try Loving Me" by The Webs, "I Gotta Know" by Tonettes, "Give Your Love To Me" and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Little Jr Jesse & The Tear Drops, "Cry & Wonder Why" by Doc & Sal, "Must Be Alright" and "Hey It's Love" by The Commands, "She's Gotta Have Soul" by Bobby Blackmon & The Soul Express, and "I Can't Take No More" by Willie Cooper & The Webs.

✨✧ VariousMetal Dance – Industrial, Post Punk, EBM Classics & Rarities 1980 to 1988 ... CD
Strut (UK), 1980s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The darkest sound of the electronic dancefloor in the 80s – and in fact, one that may well have led to a lot more different activities than just dancing! Unlike other electro work of the time, which was often a more keyboard and drum program-driven take on mainstream dance styles, these grooves are exceptionally dark – and although rhythm, are often less concerned with catchy hooks or easy-stepping riffs – a great illustration of the way the sounds of the leftfield were coming into clubs in the post-disco years! There's a strong emphasis here on the sounds of the UK post-punk electronic scene – particularly the north – with bits of Germany thrown in as well – mixed with some American artists who were clearly picking up the vibe at the time. And together, the music is virtually the blueprint for the Wax Trax/Nettwerk generation to come – although it's far richer and far more compelling overall! Titles include "The Bubblemen Are Coming" by Bubblemen, "Pressure (club)" by 400 Blows, "The Bus" by Executive Slacks, "Dream Games" by Shock, "Divided" by Portion Control, "Amok" by Ledernacken, "The Duke Arrives (12" re-edit)" by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth, "Move" by Schlaflose Nachte, "Surface Tension" by Analysis, "Je Suis Passee (dub)" by Hard Corps, "Invaders Of The Heart (exotic decadent disco mix)" by Jah Wobble, "Metal Dance" by SPK, "Slipping Again" by Naked Lunch, "You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess (UK 12" promo)" by Yello, "Brothers (mix Gabi)" by DAF, "Golpe De Amistad" by Diseno Corbusier, and "Voices" by Neon.

An overlooked groover from late 70s Motown – served up on a record that might look more like a heavy metal outing, but which is tight clubby soul all the way through! Platinum Hook are a bit in the funky territory of early Commodores – save for the fact that they've got one female singer in amongst the guys – and like that more famous combo, they have a really great way of balancing bassy groovers with a few mellower moments to really round out their sound – some slower-stepping cuts that still bring funk into the rhythms, but in a nicely laidback way! Titles include "City Life", "Gotta Find A Woman", "Til I Met You", "Hooked For Life", and a cover of George Clinton's "Standing On The Verge (Of Getting It On)". LP, Vinyl record album

Sunset Blvd, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from the legendary Brian Auger – a huge collection of work, a good deal of which is previously unreleased – and a package that makes a fantastic addition to his legendary catalog of organ and keyboard grooves! There's not much here in the way of notes – we would have loved some dates and details – but we can definitely say that our Auger-loving ears found plenty to enjoy here, as the music is from Brian's archives, put together by the man himself – and mixes some bigger hits with a lot of lesser-known material – a collection of 35 tracks that moves through all the jazzy, funky, and soulful modes that always made Brian Auger such a standout of his generation. Titles include "Isola Natale", "The Lady's In Love", "Ella", "Pavane", "Sundown", "Second Wind", "Planet Earth Calling", "Sea Of Tranquility", "Butterfly", "Whenever You're Ready", "Somebody Help Me", "I've Gotta Go Now", "Dawn Of Another Day", and "Voices Of Other Times".

✨✧ Darrow FletcherMy Young Misery ... LP
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Righteous soul from late 60s Chicago – a killer collection of early singles from the great Darrow Fletcher – only a youngster at the time, but already working at a level that's as strong as most of his older contemporaries! Darrow's got this soaring voice that really sends us every time we hear him sing – a style that's possibly a bit like Jackie Wilson, but both deeper and lighter at the same time – very unique, especially in these early years – and perfect for helping Fletcher stand out from the pack! The grooves here are nice and deep – socking hard in the best Chi-town styles of the time, with the sort of punch you'd get on the best One-Der-Ful/Mar-V-Lus recordings – with arrangements by Mike Terry, Phil Wright, Burgess Gardner, and others. Tracks were originally issued on a variety of labels – Groovy, Jacklyn, and Genna – and titles include "The Pain Gets A Little Deeper", "Hope For Love", "No Limit", "Now Is The Time For Love (part 1)", "My Judgement Day", "Little Girl", "What Have I Got Now", "What Good Am I Without You", "That Certain Little Something", and "Gotta Draw The Line".
