VariousDJ Spinna Vs P&P Records ... CD
P&P/Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
DJ Spinna takes on P&P Records – and the results are sublime! Spinna's one of the most soulful talents to ever hit the decks – an artist we can always rely on for his crucial ear for older sounds – a really unique sense of taste that always has Spinna picking some of the best cuts from rare records – and finding a way to put them together that turns us on all over again to great music! Given that P&P is a treasure trove of rare grooves, Spinna's got plenty to work with here – and manages to dig into the label with effortless ease – coming up with a wicked blend of funky soul, soulful funk, underground club, and even a bit of hip hop too! This CD version features a full mix of 24 tracks – 80 minutes of music that's tweaked and touched-up here and there with some work on the decks. Titles include "Take Me I'm Yours" by Mary Clark, "I'm Gonna Fool You" by Ella Hamilton, "Game Of Life" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "Big Foot Boogie" by Brisko The Kidd, "Did You Notice" by Louise Murray, "Dust To Dust" by Cloud One, "Determination" by Eddie Owen, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson Group, "Got You Dancing" by Karisma, and lots lots more!

VariousEquidity Funk – Hard To Find Gems From The Vaults Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99 16.98
We're not sure what "equidity" means – but the grooves here are so great, we're hardly going to ask for a definition! The package is filled with plenty of the funk promised in the title – but often in ways that are really odd and offbeat – just what you'd expect from a mighty trip through the legendary P&P Records archives! Notes are a bit spare, but most tracks here appear to be from the late 70s and early 80s – mixing earlier funk modes with bits of club and old school hip hop – the latter of which makes for some of the best numbers here, cuts that really step out with a street party sort of feel. Titles include "Robot Dance" by Marvin Wright, "New York Computer Break Dance" by Stax, "Game Of Life (inst" by Lavara & E Mallison, "Gangster Rock" by Little Starsky, "Anyway I Can" by Milton Floyd, "Pound For Pound" by Le'O Roy, "Robot Dance" by Milton Wright, "Disco Hop" by Fly Guy, "Equidity Funk" by Mistafide, "Funk Rap (inst)" by Ikim & Bacardi, "This Is The Way To Break Dance" by Super Coper & Clarence Breaker, and "Let's Do It" by Jesse Gee.

✨✧ VariousMichael Campbell's Best Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A P&P funky disco "best of" Michael Campbell – featuring standout stormers by his groups High Fidelity and High Voltage – plus a couple of Campbell's best productions for others! The heart of this tight compilation are the monster club cuts by the High. . . .groups – High Fidelity, High Voltage and Michael Campbell & High Volt – all heavily percussive jams that'll shake dance floors for as long as DJs play them – and we'd recommend forever for that! It kicks off with the 11-minute "Rock, Spank, Freak" by High Voltage and the nearly 7-minute "We Are Making Music (Part 1)" by Michael Campbell & High Volt – and includes "Life Time", "Dedicated", "Love Champ", "From Us To You", "Destiny" and "Magic Carpet" by High Fidelity. Last, but not least – instrumental versions of "Going To A Disco To-Night" by Little Scotty and "Dance To The Beat Freakout" by Wayne Ford. It's not a mix set, either – it's got 10 full length versions from P&P – and 68 minutes of club-scorching genius! CD

✨✧ VariousPatrick Adams' Best Of P&P Records ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Patrick Adams picks the best of P&P Records – and the man definitely knows what he's doing – given that he was one of the "P's" in the label's name! The tunes here are heavy on those cool spaced-out grooves that Adams did so well – that wonderfully hip, and very underground style he used after an initial few years in more mainstream soul – the trademark imprint of P&P, and the reason why the label's tunes have gone onto influence so many others over the years! The grooves are all sublime – from quick-stepping moogy numbers, to mellower tracks that stretch out in this great sort of gentle funk – all tied together with a united production aesthetic and lots of shared sympathies between the artists. Titles include "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "Jump Jump Jump" by The Musicmakers, "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is Woman" by Margie Lomax, "God Save & Protect All The Children" by Margo Williams, "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra – and "Flying High", "Disco Juice", "Happy Music", and "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By" by Cloud One.

✨✧ Marta AcunaDance, Dance, Dance (disco, DJ) ... 12-inch
P&P, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant stuff – and one of the greatest P&P singles ever! Marta Acuna's "Dance Dance Dance" is one of those tracks that we never tire of – a sublime blend of Latin rhythms, warm disco vocals, and that great spacey P&P approach to production! Sweet female vocals glide in and out of the tune while a pumping bassy rhythm rolls along – gently grooving the track with a jazzy sort of flair, as moogy keyboards bring in a wonderful cosmic vibe! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Cloud OneSpaced Out – The Best Of Cloud One ... CD
P&P, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99 15.98
Classic work from the legendary P&P Records label – created by one of the "P" talents who gave them their name – studio genius Patrick Adams, who mostly works here on his own under the name of Cloud One! Adams already had great success working with east coast soul groups in the first half of the 70s – and as Cloud One, he really finds his way around the more cutting-edge styles of the time – mixing bits of funk with bits of disco, and often adding in these cool electronic elements that really helped define the P&P sound! Many cuts have cool moogy keyboards, and some spacey elements along the edges – done with a lot more soul than some of the Euro space disco recordings of the same time – with much more of a tie to the New York underground that was Adams' main milieu. Titles include the classics "Spaced Out" and "Atmosphere Strut" – plus "Jump Jump Jump", "Stomp Your Feet & Dance", "Disco Juice", "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By", "Patty Duke", "Happy Music", "Doin It All Night", and "Flyin High".

✨✧ VariousMaster Of The Masterpiece Vol 2 – More of The Best Of Patrick Adams ... LP
P&P, New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Few folks might feel confident to lay claim to being the "master of the masterpiece" – but given the mighty talents of Patrick Adams, the title is certainly well put! Adams has a legacy that's mighty wide in soul music – from group recordings of the late 60s, to harmony soul of the early 70s, to seminal funk and club of the latter 70s – some of the best of which is featured in this set! The collection draws on material that Adams recorded for the P&P family of labels during his partnership with Peter Brown in the 70s and early 80s – a critical relationship that had an undeniable impact on the sound of underground club for many years to come, and which is still really just being discovered fully today. This second chapter in the Adams/Masterpiece series follows strongly on the first – and in a way, it's even more essential as it features a few less hits and some more lost treasures – including some numbers that push the groove a bit more than before – both back to older soul styles, and forward to some slightly more electro-influenced sounds. Titles include "Everybody Dance" by Bumblebee Unlimited, "Happy Is The Only Way" and "Rotation" by Sine, "Busy Body" and "Nasty Rock" by The P Crew, "Never" by Center Stage, "Dance & Shake Your Tambourine (original demo)" by Universal Robot Band, "No Deposit No Return" by Debbie Taylor, "Looking For A Brand New Game" by The Eight Minutes, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough (original demo)" by Inner Life, and "I Got A Big Bee (original demo)" by Bumblebee Unlimited.

✨✧ Cloud OneAtmosphere Strut ... LP
P&P, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the holy grails of the Spaced Out club music scene! Patrick Adams produced and arranged (and wrote and probably performed) this stunning set of spacey club grooves with a cool electronic feel, and a nice sense of mid to up-tempo rhythms. Includes the classic "Atmospheric Strut", one of the moogiest tracks around, plus the classics "Spaced Out" and "Disco Juice". All cuts are great, though, and the album's also got a good soul sound that often gets overlooked, especially on the cut "Doin' It All Night Long". A great one, and on the rare P&P label!

✨✧ Jo BissoAfrican Disco Experimentals 1974 to 1978 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $32.99 34.99
Don't think "experimental", think funky club tracks – as Jo Bisso did a great job of crossing over to the American mainstream in the 70s, thanks in part to a famous album on TK Records! That work is referenced here, alongside some much more obscure tracks – all with an approach to club music that mixes African touches with some of the more unusual styles of the New York scene – including a few keyboard-heavy moments that would have been right at home on the P&P family of labels! The set's the first to really do justice to the creative talents of Bisso for the clubs – and titles include the long "Play Me" suite, plus "Your Love", "Let's Keep it Together", "Midnight", "Disco Madonna", "Lover's Concerto", "Don't Fight The Feeling", "Love Beat", "Tonight", "Chocodate", "The Mystery With Me", and "Don't Think About It".

BuariDisco Soccer ... CD
Makossa/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A killer blend of African roots and American rhythms – and a set that definitely lives up to the disco promised in the title! Buari's working here with a host of New York musicians – jazzy players who include Randy Brecker and Jon Faddis on trumpet, Barry Rogers on trombone, and Michael Brecker on tenor – all blowing tightly over the album's quick rhythms and well-crafted string arrangements! The sound is hardly familiar disco – and the music is much more in the styles of the underground at the time – almost equivalent to P&P Records productions in the way that Buari works some clever magic with the grooves. The whole thing's got a lot more edge than his better-known set on RCA – and titles include "Koko Si", "I'm Ready", "Feed My Body", "Hard Times", "Adesa A", "Minyo", "Born With Music", and "African Hustle".

Kiki Gyan24 Hours In A Disco – 1978 to 1982 (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99 About November 1, 2021
Some of the funkiest, clubbiest work we've ever heard from the African scene of the 70s – great grooves that would be right at home on the New York dancefloors of the time! The style here is definitely drawn from disco, yet is a lot more funk-based too – more in the farther reaches of the disco underground of the late 70s – with some of the offbeat touches you might hear from some of the P&P family of labels. Basslines are often stronger than the beats – and although strings and other elements are sometimes used to sweeten the grooves – the approach is never too commercial, and never softens up the funky rhythms at the bottom. Kiki plays keyboards, sings a bit, and does a great job on production – working under his own name, and with some other key projects as well. Titles include "Disco Dancer", "24 Hours In A Disco", "Sexy Dancer", and "Keep On Dancing" by Kiki Gyan – plus "Loving You" and "Disco Train" by KG Band, and "Pretty Pretty Girls" by The Twins.

Queen Constance BandUniversity Dances Of 1978 ... CD
Queen Constance, 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Great grooves from the legendary Peter Brown – way groovier than you'd guess from the title and cover – and an obscure set for the Queen Constance label of the P&P Records family! The tracks here are all upbeat and clubby – in an off-kilter style of funk that's got plenty of P&P touches, but which is also a bit different than some of the better-known work from the imprint. There's often a lot of riffing guitar alongside the drums – moving up and down, back and forth with a quick-vamping style in line with the percussion – almost in a way that's a precursor to ESG, especially given the rough sing-song female vocals on most tracks! There's a slightly rough quality to the work, but that's also part of the appeal – and again a link to an ESG mode – and side one includes vocal tracks like "The Freak", "Funky Phantom", "The Hot Foot", "Georgia Boys", "Pigeon Hustle", and "NY Slide" – while the other side has the same tracks done instrumentally!

Star BeamsStar Beams Play Disco Specials ... LP
Gallo/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
A fantastic set from 70s South Africa – and a record that maybe has a lot more of an American funk vibe than you'd expect! The style is nice and lean, and is often in a mode that echoes some of the cooler underground disco of the late 70s on the east coast – almost as if these cuts could have come from one of the P&P family of labels, instead of South Africa's big Gallo imprint – save for some especially nice moments that almost recall the early 70s electric funk of Hugh Masekela! All tunes are nice and long, all instrumentals – and the "disco specials" are original tunes that mix clubby rhythms with a variety of different sounds and styles – really cool, very fresh, and not even in the same territory as some of the West African/Paris hybrids of the time. Titles include the ten minute classic "Disco Stomp" – plus "We Did It", "Barney's Moaning", and "GG Is Talking". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic 500th release by the BBE label – one that looks back at the past, and soars to the future! This special extended single package is a fantastic return to form for everyone involved – as underground club legends Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess get a whole new groove from Louie Vega – but with a warmly soaring vibe that's a great update of their classic approach! "Barely Breaking Even" is a classic from the Universal Robot Band – but this new take has both vocals and production that are a lot warmer than the original P&P Records version – and a groove that's even catchier too! All four mixes are over eight minutes long – served up here beautifully on a double 12" package! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Art WebbMr Flute ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A tasty batch of uptempo instrumentals by Art Webb – a lesser-known funky flute player, but one who played on a huge amount of Latin sessions during the 70s (check your session notes, and you'll see his name a surprising amount of times!) This fairly obscure session as a leader was produced by Patrick Adams, who also did all the arrangements and conducted the large backing group – in a sweet mode that's a mix of Adams' clubby work for P&P, and the tighter fusion that you'd expect to hear on Atlantic records at the time. Webb's flute lines soar over larger backings and some chorus vocals that come across with a more polished take on the P&P sound – a mode that's somewhere in the same territory as Bobbi Humprhey's great late 70s records for Epic. Titles include "Melon Grove", "Mr. Flute", "Smile", "Good Times In Life", and "Come and Get Some Of This". CD

Soundway (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 34.99 About February 20, 2022
Damn great work from the early 80s Nigerian scene – music that's evolved strongly past the Afro Funk of the 70s, and often has the same electro soul sound as work from the US at the time! These cuts are unabashedly upbeat, and aimed at the dancefloor – full of the kind of basslines and keyboard lines that folks treasure in rare American boogie singles – and topped with English language lyrics that give these tunes a really universal appeal! There's a nicely offbeat vibe to the cuts at times – almost a P&P club sort of style – which makes the whole thing a real treasure for any fan of funky club music, not just Nigerian sounds. Titles include "Only You" by Steve Monite, "Don't You Know" by Peter Abdul, "Fellas Doing It In Lagos" by Hotline, "Too Hot" by Rick Asikpo & Afro Fusion, "Funk With Me" by Danny Offia & The Friks, "Don't Give Up" by Willy Roy, "Groove I Like" by Veno, "Don't Stop That Music" by Sony Enang, "Where Is The Answer" by Burnis Moleme, and "Enjoy Your Life" by Oby Onyioha. The LP version includes detailed booklet and bonus 45 with "On The Air (rap mix)" by Lexy Mella and "Burning Jungle" by Ofege! LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent work from this one-off group arranged and produced by Vince Montana! The feel's more in the mode of some of Patrick Adams' disco work for P&P than Montana's usual groove – with a sweet jazzy touch, and a warm soulful groove that pushes the album way past most of its contemporaries in the disco/club vein.

✨✧ Jo BissoLove Somebody ... CD
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Disco grooves, but with a definite difference – given that Jo Bisso had previously worked on the Parisian club scene, and brings a special flourish to this American album from the late 70s! Jo sings lead vocals on the side-long "Love Somebody" – a tune that builds strongly as Bisso gets answered by a trio of lovely ladies who really brighten up the sound – and who then seem to take over even more on the flipside working with singer Claudia Ferrari. This second side is even better than the first – as things get a bit more spare and stripped-down – snaking out on the smooth stepper "Your Love", getting some funky moogy touches on the P&P-like "Let's Keep It Together", and warming up on the mellow disco number "Thank You Baby". Special bonus – CD features a fifth track – not titled or credited at all! CD
