✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneFamily Affair/Luv N Haight ... 7-inch
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real classic – with a sound that never gets old! "Family Affair" is one of those landmark tracks that forever changed the sound of soul, and which opened a door that everyone had to pass through, and could never return! Great stuff, great sound, and a really great hook! The flip's nice, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Yellow label pressing, in a vintage Epic sleeve.)

Geater DavisLost Soul ... LP
House Of Orange/Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $16.99 24.98
An incredible collection of work from the vastly-overlooked Geater Davis – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! Geater Davis is a tremendous singer from the south – but one who barely ever got his due back in the 70s – even though these recordings for the tiny House Of Orange label are every bit as amazing as work coming out for bigger labels like Stax or Hi Records! Although Davis didn't record nearly as much as his contemporaries, he's got a sound that matches or beats them – a raw, raspy quality that's a bit like Bobby Blue Bland, touched with the depth of feeling we love in James Carr, peppered with elements of other Memphis singers – all produced to perfection with a sound that's got a deep-burning soul that never lets up. This excellent collection features all tracks from Geater's rare album Sweet Woman's Love, plus additional singles from the time – all produced by Allen Orange, an overlooked genius in the southern studio scene of the 70s. Titles include "Don't Marry A Fool", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Love You", "I Know My Baby Loves Me", "I Can Hold My Own", "Cold Love (long version)", "I'll Get By", "I'll Play The Blues For You", "Breath Taking Girl", and a killer long take on "For Your Precious Love".

✨✧ Mike James KirklandDoin' It Right ... LP
Bryan/Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A tremendous second set of work from the mighty Mike James Kirkland – a west coast soul talent who never fully got his due, but who will forever be legendary for a few key records like this! Mike can give us all the right funky currents when he wants – but this album also displays an almost deeper approach to soul – one that often has the sensuous qualities of mid 70s Marvin Gaye at his best, but delivered with some slightly rougher edges that really keep things interesting – and which keeps the record from sounding anything else like the bigger 70s soul on the charts! Titles include "You Put It On My Mind", "It's Too Late", "Love Insurance", "Oh Me Oh My (I'm A Fool For You)", "Got To Do It Right", "The Only Change", and "Love Is All We Need".

Mighty RyedersHelp Us Spread The Message ... CD
Luv N' Haight, 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A funky treasure from the 70s – a record that hardly made waves at the time, but which has lived on strongly for years – thanks to a great sample history and key interest from generations of groove diggers! Mighty Ryeders have a sound that's clearly influenced by Earth Wind & Fire – funk with a good dose of jazz, often done with some righteous undercurrents in the lyrics – but their groove is also a bit more rough-edged too, sharing some funky 45-levels of excitement, and showing a great ear for sharply jazzy changes! This last aspect has really helped the group's sound stay fresh over the years – and the album's a treasure trove of killer cuts – from the famous "Evil Vibrations", right on down through other gems like "The Mighty Ryeders", "Let There Be Peace", "Lovely", "Help Us Spread The Message", "Fly Away With Me", "Sar Children", and "I've Really Got The Feeling".

Steve ParksMovin' In The Right Direction ... LP
Solid Smoke/Luv N' Haight, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.98
A completely unique little set from singer Steve Parks – a set cut in the Bay Area scene of the early 80s – but done with a righteous 70s vibe that mixes jazz, soul, and bits of Latin influences as well! The overall approach is definitely soul, but there's plenty of jazz inflections in the vocals and instrumentation – a vibe that's not unlike the best sound of Jon Lucien on RCA, but which is carried here by Parks with a bit more force – and these undeniably fluid vocals sounds that really blow us away! Instrumentation is right on the money – warm, jazzy, and never hokey at all – with lots of great acoustic percussion at the core. Titles include the massive sample track "Movin In The Right Direction" – plus "All In A Day", "Everything's Gonna Be OK", "Don't Stop Now", "The Golden Key", and "Sadness In My Samba".

Longineu ParsonsSpaced – Collected Works 1980-1999 ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1980s/1990s. Very Good 2LP ... $11.99
Beautiful spiritual soul jazz! Longineu Parsons is an obscure American trumpeter who's cut some supremely fantastic music over the past 20 years – most of it nearly impossible to find, until the release of this great compilation. Parsons has a style that can be likened to some of the Cannonball/Nat Adderley soul jazz collaborations of the early 70s, some of the later Lee Morgan albums on Blue Note, and mixed with freer sounds that he's absorbed from playing with folks like David Murray, Sun Ra, and Billy Harper. This set brings together lods of great tracks from Parson's self-titled 1980 album, plus the album Work Song, and another cassette-only release. If you're a bit worried about the sound, don't be – as the material feels like it was pulled from the vaults of some lost 70s label, instead of from a more recent imprint. Titles include "Funkin Around", "Spaced", "The Gathering", "Hannibal's March", "Passing Moment", "Search For The New Land", and "Take The High Road". Also features bonus remixes by Amalgamation Of Sounds and P'Taah! LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Ann TaylorLove Is A Hurtin Thing/Brother Less Than A Man (red colored vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 8.98
Some mighty fierce, almost freaky guitar starts out this rare gem from Gloria Ann Taylor – before these weirdly exotic strings come in and warm things up, then set a course for Taylor's vocals to follow! Guitar returns strongly for this nice trippy solo in the middle – and really makes the track something unique! "Brother Less Than A Man" has a nicely righteous vibe – congas with the rhythms, and this gospelly lead from Gloria right at the start – before soaring into the fierce, powerful groove of the cut – which almost feels like one of Archie Shepp's more spiritual experiments from the early 70s – but with heavy guitar instead of tenor! 7-inch, Vinyl record

TwilightStill Loving You ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 20.98
A lost bit of Cali soul from the 80s – the first album from Twilight, not really a group, but more of a solo studio project from Lawrence Ross! Ross was a shift worker at General Mills, but had some free time to conceive his dream soul album during the twilight hours of the day – hence the name of the "group" –and after slaving away on his off hours to put the whole thing together, he recorded most of this set within the space of a week playing most of the instruments himself! A few other guest artists came in to round out the sound, but there's definitely a personal quality to the record that belies Ross' close association with the whole thing – carefully written tunes that could have challenged the mainstream, had they gotten bigger production, but which have a great deal of charm since they're done here in a more stripped-down, indie-styled way. Twilight has all the best aspects of soul acts of the time – some tight groovers that mix up boogie rhythms with some warmer Cali soul – and a few mellower cuts that benefit from some cool spacey keyboards. Titles include "Play My Game", "Scorpittiarus", "We'll Be Special", "Love's High", "You Know It's Me", "Love's The Way", "Straight To My Heart", and "Just A Kiss Away". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBay Area Funk – Funk & Soul Essentials From San Francisco, Oakland, & The Bay Area 1967-1976 ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
A killer! As revolutionary as the music and political climate was in the Bay Area in the late 60s and early 70s, it's damn near criminal that there haven't been more representative collections of the music – enter Luv N Haight Records, who are here with the first ever comprehensive compilation of Bay Area funk and hard soul! The kind of funky music that came out of the Bay in the period differs a bit from a lot of mirror sounds from the other coast, the midwest and the south –artists and groups like Sugar Pie Desanto, P-I-R Square, Marvin Holmes and the Uptights, San Francisco T.K.O and others work with short, tight, hard-clapping blasts of 45 funk. Where the funk of other scenes was designed to bounce you along an elastic groove, the Cali school for the most part specialized in short, sweaty, scratchy numbers that were designed to get you on your feet, than knock you straight on your arse! Truly amazing stuff – all funky 45 numbers, many of which are available for the first time on CD! 16 treasures: "Git Back" by Sugar Pie Desanto, "Foxy Girls In Oakland" by Rodger Collins, "Pickin' Cotton" by Johnny Talbot, "Find Yourself" by Marvin Holmes, "Check Me Out" by Kittie Denise, "Trippin' On The Sound" by Jeannie Tracie, "The Trip" by Eugene Blacknell, "Fantasy" by P-I-R Square, "Oomph" by Marvin Holmes, "Herm" by San Francisco T.K.O.'s and lots more – plus great foldout notes with details on each track. A great sounding, long overdue document of a great scene! CD
(CONDITION NOTE: disc has a small 5mm crack outside the play area – priced accordingly.)

✨✧ Ivan Boogaloo Joe JonesSweetback ... CD
Luv N' Haight, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the time – making it one of THE indie jazz funk classics of the 70s! The album's actually one of Boogaloo's best – and has a rougher edge than his Prestige albums – heard to great effect on the two standout funky cuts, "Sweetback" and "Confusion" – both of which are stunners that feature Jones really ripping away on the guitar! The whole set's nice, though – and other tracks include "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Trouble In Mind", and "Jamaica Farewell". CD

✨✧ DarondoLet My People Go (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mad homegrown soul from the enigmatic Darondo – a brief Bay Area star back in the 70s, and also host of TV comedy and children's shows! Darondo only ever saw release of 3 singles, but they're all pretty darn great – a weird mix of funk, soul, and sly slinky grooves – very unique in conception, and with a heady, tripped-out vision that makes us wish he'd recorded more. Luv N Haight have really done Darondo justice with this set – bringing together all 6 tracks from the singles, plus 3 more previously unissued numbers – all in a great package that features words from the man himself, plus some great images from his older TV shows. A near-lost soul figure, but one with enough charisma to fill the careers of other more famous acts! Titles include "How I Got Over", "Let My People Go", "Legs (part 1)", "True", "Didn't I", "I Want Your Love So Bad", "My Momma & My Poppa", "Sure Know How To Love Me", and "Listen To My Song".

✨✧ Dee EdwardsWhy Can't There Be Love/I Can Deal With That ... 7-inch
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Funky work from Detroit's Dee Edwards – a tune that's almost a fuzzy take on earlier Motown soul modes – still romping, but with lots of trippy guitar around the edges – and echoey production that's almost got a Westbound vibe, as does the guitar! "I Can Deal With That" is one of the coolest cuts we've ever heard from Dee Edwards – a sweet mellow stepper that has a jazzy guitar lick tripping around the bottom, while Dee sings it strong on the top, but in a nicely understated way! The flipside adds in a bit of strings, but never in a way that dampens the groove at all – more like some nice bit of sweetening in the sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A righteous funky classic from Chicago – a rare single that unites two fantastic underground talents from the city at the start of the 70s – the mighty Spencer Jackson Family on vocals, and the totally great Pharaohs on backup! The single was issued on Scarab, the label responsible for The Pharaoh's own classic records – and the group are very much in the same spirit as on those gems – serving up a soaring mix of funk, soul, and freer jazz – while the Jackson Family really do their thing with the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ PharaohsAwakening (with bonus CD & download) ... LP
Luv N' Haight/Ubiquity, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary album from Chicago – recorded by a group with ties to Sun Ra, Phil Cohran, and Earth Wind & Fire! The set's got a sound that more than lives up to all those references – a vibe that's jazzy and soulful, yet often quite righteous too – imbued with the sort of spirit you'd guess from the group's name and the album's cover image – but often served up with a tight enough groove to make the set a favorite for fans of funk as well! There's a really special mix going on here – and unlike other ensembles of the time, The Pharoahs never go too far out – and instead really have the great sort of focus you'd hear even more strongly with Earth Wind & Fire. The lineup features Louis Satterfield on bass, Willie Woods on trombone, Don Myrick on saxes, Black Herman on drums, and Derf Reklaw on percussion and flute – and titles include "Ibo", "Somebody's Been Sleeping", "Damballa", "Freedom Road", "Great House", and "Black Enuff".

✨✧ Gloria Ann TaylorLove Is A Hurtin Thing (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Selector Sound/Luv N' Haight, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of soul – and an album that will win you over right from the very first offbeat note! Some mad guitars introduce Gloria Ann Taylor's title cover version of "Love Is A Hurtin Thing" – and the whole album follows suit with these really unusual funky elements – echoey piano that feels like it was lifted from Charles Stepney, a righteous fuzzy funk part that has a Tribe Records vibe, and even certain elements that remind us of old Italian soundtracks – but mixed with much deeper soul! And the best thing of all is that all these cuts are classics, not some retro remakes – instead these overlooked nuggets that remind us that just when we think we've heard all the great soul there is to hear, a record like this comes around to open our minds all over again. Gloria never had a full length album back in the day, but this set brings together most of her rare singles – a massive batch of tracks that includes "What I Want", "How Can You Say It", "Love Is A Hurtin Thing", "Deep Inside Of You", "World That's Not Real", "Music", "Had It All The Time", "Burning Eyes", and "What's Your World".

Sly & The Family StoneThere's A Riot Goin' On ... LP
Epic, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness. Despite the political tone implied by the "riot" in the title and the co-option of the American flag on the cover, the album's strongest suit is its warmth and personal soul message – sometimes filled with politics, sure, but always sounding like a sexy love song, no matter how hard it tries to get righteous. Who cares, though – just get with the flow on great cuts like "Family Affair", "Luv N Haight", "Brave & Strong", "You Caught Me Smilin", and "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa". Also features "There's A Riot Goin' On" – which runs for "0:00" minutes! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Uncle FunkensteinTogether Again ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
An amazing bit of funky jazz – recorded in the Indy scene of the early 80s, but with enough raw power to blow away most soul jazz sides of the 70s! The album's filled with massively funky bass – played by key group member Larry Ridley, who brings amazing energy to the core "Uncle Funkenstein" jam that the album's best known for! The tune's an extended workout with a choppy, funky groove – started by bass, peppered with percussion, and really brought home with instrumentation that features group leader Russell Webster on tenor, James Spaulding on flute, Clifford Ratcliff on trumpet, Melvin Rhyne on piano, and Alonzo Pookie Johnson on additional tenor. Given the presence of both bigger names like Ridley, Spaulding, and Rhyne on the set – and that of local players under the direction of Webster – the record's a great bridge between the larger jazz community at the time and some of the key local scenes in which players would retreat and cook up even greater music. A few tracks on the album are a bit more conventional, or a bit mellow – but overall, the record's filled with plenty of soul, and more than enough funky power to live up to the group's name! Titles include the jamming "Uncle Funkenstein", "Unkle Funkenstein (part 2)", and "Uncle Funkenstein (cont)" – at 30 minutes, way more of the "Uncle Funkenstein" jam than appeared on the Luv N Haight reissue years back. Other titles include "Together Again", "Blue Robe", "Where Does life Come From", "Rock My Cradle", "Third Bosinova", and "500 Finished". CD
