Cloud One & OthersFlying High – Patrick Adams P&P Masters ... CD
P&P/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
Tremendous grooves from one of the coolest club labels of all time – the legendary P&P family of labels, home to some of the weirdest, wildest, most experimental tracks to ever hit the dancefloor – yet all tracks that are pretty darn funky too! This 2CD collection is heavy on cuts from Cloud One – one of the most well-known P&P acts, often working with weird moogy electronics over funky club rhythms – a combination that still sounds as fantastic now as when Patrick Adams got the group going way back when – especially in the company of some of the other cool cuts that are on the collection too. Cloud One tracks include "Music Funk", "Funky Track", "Disco Juice", "Dust To Dust", "Spaced Out", "Charleston Hopscotch", "Atmosphere Strut (parts 1 & 2)", "Doin It All Night Long", "Jump Jump Jump", "Flying High (part 1)", "Patty Duke", "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By", "Atmosphere Strut (1979 rmx – part 2)", and "Happy Music" – and other tracks include "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is A Woman" by Marie Lomax, "My Baby's Got ESP (orig 7" mix)" by Four Below Zero, "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, "Dance Dance Dance (disco version)" by Maria Acuna, "God Save & Protect Children" by Margo Williams, "Ain't Gonna Be A Next Time (short version)" by Magnetic Touch, and "It's Rough (dub)" by The Imperial Three.

VariousDJ Spinna Vs P&P Records ... CD
P&P/Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $3.99
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. Used ... $3.99
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.

✨✧ VariousP&P Presents Happy Music & Friends – A Selection Of Classic And Cult Disco, Funk & Soul ... CD
P&P/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of grooves – all pulled from the legendary P&P Records family of labels from the New York underground – hand-selected by Japanese DJ/collectors Ken Hidaka and Frankie Valentine! If you don't know the P&P groove, this is a great place to start – as the label had a really unique, really wonderful sound – tracks from the disco era, but stripped down to their core – so that the rhythms are really raw, instrumentation is nice and funky, and most of the music has this searing power that's kept the P&P tracks on the hippest of dancefloors for decades! A number of the cuts have really cool electronics, some others bring in some old school modes, and there's an equal balance between vocals and instrumentals that really keeps things exciting. Titles include "I Got You Dancing" by Karisma with Jocelyn Brown, "Ain't It Time (inst)" by Queen Yahna, "Magic Carpet" by High Fidelity, "Pound For Pound" by Le'o Roy, "Spank Me (voc)" by Bobby Mann, "Smooth Talk (inst)" by Mr Fox, "Johnson Jumpin (12" mix)" by Johnson Products, "Got To Get Your Love (voc)" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Dance Freak" by Chain Reaction, "African Rock" by Licky, "Stomp Your Feet & Dance (voc)" by Kim Taylor, "Roller Rink Funk" by Shift, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Shake Off That Dream (disco)" by Eddie Owen, and "Freaktime" by Scott Davis & The Movements.

✨✧ VariousSources – The P&P Records Funk & Rap Anthology (3 CD set) ... CD
P&P/Harmless (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really really great collection of work from the legendary P&P Record labels – and one that goes way way past some of the other over-compiled work on the market! This set is really special – as it showcases first some early soul and funk that the label recorded – then moves onto document their surprisingly strong contribution to early hip hop as well – some great old school numbers that are pretty darn fresh to our ears! CD1 features 18 killer soul tracks – many with a deep soul vibe you might not expect, and which represents the label's contribution to some of the grittier sounds on the east coast scene – and not the disco that P&P is usually known for. Soul tracks include "The Greatest Debt To My Mother" by Henry Brooks, "I'm Coming Back To Life Again" by Florence Miller, "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Owen, "Black Ice" by Sons Of Darkness, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson Group, "Freaktime" by Scott Davis & The Movements, and "Long Time Ago" by Smokie Brook". CDs 2 & 3 bring together 24 old school hip hop tracks – with a few rollerskate and boogie groovers thrown in as well – and titles include "Schoolin" by Sherod, "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood, "Scoopy Rap" by Scoopy, "Family Rap" by Family, "Tricky Tee Rap" by Troy Rainey, "Game Of Life" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "Death Rap" by Margo's Coolout Crew, "Roller Rooster Rap Dance" by Fresh Female, "Sweet Naomi Rap" by Naomi Peterson, "Win Jesse Win" by Stack, and "Big Foot Boogie" by Brisko The Kidd.

✨✧ VariousSources – The P&P Records Soul & Disco Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
P&P/Harmless (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very very hip batch of tracks from the mighty P&P Records label – one of the coolest, wildest, funkiest imprints on the New York scene at the end of the 70s! P&P wasn't just disco, wasn't just club – but instead this amazing hybrid of so many different styles – at a level that helped find a place in the 12" universe for older funky 45 bands, and laid the groundwork for lots of experiments to come in both hip hop and house! And while there's been plenty of P&P collections over the years, there's definitely something special going on with this one – a deeper look at the label's strong soul output, compiled by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster, who also provided the notes. 3CD set has a whopping 37 long tracks in all – most original 12" mixes – and titles include "Superstition" by Dennis Mobley & Fresh Taste, "Robot Dance" by Marvin Wright, "Get Down" by Rudy Stuart, "Pound For Pound" by Leo Roy, "Stay Away" by Louise Murray, "Spank Me" by Bobby Mann, "You've Been Huncin All Night" by La She Ba, "Charlie's Angels" by Oral Caress, "God Save & Protect All Children" by Margo Williams, "Turn Up Your Radio" by Kessler, "Take Me I'm Yours" by Mary Clark, "25 Hours" by Lanier, "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "Got To Have Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, and "Stereo Funk" by Darrow & Stereo.

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 2CD ... $14.99 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".

Jack AshfordHotel Sheet ... LP
Magic Disc/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the coolest club records ever cut – and one with a great gimmick too! That gimmick is the "hotel sheet" – an instrument created by percussionist Jack Ashford, which is a light piece of metal that's snapped back and worth to create these cool wibbly, wobbly waves of sound – almost like a moog at times, which gives some of these tracks a bit of a P&P Records vibe! Ashford was a member of The Funk Brothers – and a percussionist on countless classic Motown sessions – but this album was recorded in LA with a sweet electric groove, and a mix of strings and funk that almost rivals Jack's only other full album – a rare blacksploitation soundtrack. The set features full arrangements from Paul Riser, orchestrations from Gordon Staples, and the whole thing was recorded at the Marvin Gaye studios – which you can almost hear in Ashford's surprisingly great vocals. The title cut "Hotel Sheet" has this wonderful popping moogy sound that's very nice – and other tracks include "Funky Disco Party", "Shar", "Hi Mom, Hi Al", and "Get Right On Top".

AtmosfearDancing In Outer Space ... CD
Sequel (UK), 2000. Used ... $12.99
An amazing album of spacey dancefloor tunes – and the first-ever proper reissue of work by the legendary UK outfit Atmosfear! Atmosfear had a revolutionary electronic disco sound that's probably best compared to the Patrick Adams or Cloud One work for the P&P label in the US – and the tracks on this set sparkle with splashy beats, tranced-out keyboards, flipped-up bass, and nice jazzy riffs to keep the whole thing in a soulful mode. If you've never heard the group, this one will blow your mind – and if you only have one or two of their original tracks on other compilations, you'll appreciate all the previously unreissued tracks on this 10-song set! Titles include "Outer Space", "Motivation", "Extract", "Alternative II", "Extra Special", "Interplay", "Return of LB", and their classic "Dancing In Outerspace", laid out in the full 9 minute 12" version!

Mr Bongo (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Some of the greatest club tunes ever cut for the UK scene – a sublime album of jazzy spacey instrumentals by the legendary Atmosfear! The group were almost a UK equivalent of the sounds coming out of New York from the P&P camp at the end of the 70s – as they worked in the shadows of mainstream disco, but with a sound that was leaner, more stripped-down, and often touched with keyboard styles borrowed heavily from jazz funk and fusion. There's a simplicity to the Atmosfear groove that's totally great – a real focus on snapping drums, spacey keyboards, and trippy basslines – never too complicated, but always a cut above the more familiar grooves of the time. Includes "Free Tonight", "Duende", "Creators Dream", "Interplay", "Funk The Rock", "Invasion" and "Return Of LB". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Queen Constance, Late 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Get ready to Disco Juice it up! This excellent 2 CD set features a huge batch of excellent tracks from the legendary P&P Records – the spacey disco imprint that's gotten a lot of recognition lately for its groundbreaking work during the late 70s. This cool 2 CD set focuses on the work of the label's biggest act, Cloud One, and it also includes remixes of tracks by a number of other artists on P&P and related labels. CD one features all of Cloud One's excellent self-titled LP – including the original mixes of "Spaced Out", "Atmosfear Strut", "Disco Juice", and "Dust To Dust". It also features 5 tracks from The Funky Disco Tracks Of Cloud One – including "Happy Music", "Jump Jump Jump", "Funky Track", and "Music Funk" – which are equally excellent, and even harder to find. Then, CD two features 12" versions of work by Cloud One and others – so that you've got versions of tracks that have been reissued on 12" before, like the "Atmosphere Strut" remix, plus "Disco Juice", "Going To A Disco Tonight", "Out Of Work", "Patty Duke", "Ain't It Time", and "Got You Dancing". Great stuff, and with 19 cuts in all! CD

Gary Davis/Chocolate StarChocolate Star – A Taste Of Chocolate – The Very Best Of Gary Davis ... CD
Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
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)".

Latin inflected club grooves by the legendary El Coco – a fantastic group who often worked with the same sort of spacey elements that you'd find in work from the P&P family of labels! The group were probably the most successful to come from the team of Michal Lewis and Laurin Rinder – and although things are maybe not as jazzy or far out as some of the other Rinder & Lewis records, there's still plenty of those elements in the mix! Most tracks are nice and long, with a disco groove, and titles that include "Carry Me", "I'll Take My Chances", "Something Ya Got Makes Me Hot", and "Love Bizness". LP, Vinyl record album

Kiki Gyan24 Hours In A Disco – 1978 to 1982 (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
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.

JVC (Japan), 2019. New Copy ... $29.99
A really unique album from Japanese jazz combo Soil & Pimp Sessions – music done for an animated film, and handled in a style that's a bit different than the group's usual sound! If you know and love S&P as much as we do, you'll know that they've got a great talent for fast, frenetic instrumentation – always hewn to a groove, but always pretty darn intense. Here, they expand the palette a bit more – working through modes that are sometimes richer in tone and structure, and which add occasional electric elements to their acoustic work – kind of this beautiful mash-up of jazzy grooves with anime soundtrack standards, but at a level that's way cooler than the best of that second category. Titles include "Phantom Of Franklin Avenue", "Tracking", "Before The Dawn", "Thinking Of You", "In The Gloom Of The Forest", and "The Light & The Shadowland". CD

Marlin, 1977. Very Good ... 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".

There's a simplicity to the Atmosfear groove that's totally great – a real focus on snapping drums, spacey keyboards, and trippy basslines – never too complicated, but always a cut above the more familiar grooves of the time.CD includes full original En Trance album by the group, plus 4 additional bonus tracks from singles – and tracks include "Free Tonight", "Duende", "Creators Dream", "Interplay", "Funk The Rock", "Invasion", "Return Of LB", "Dancing In Outer Space", "Motivation", "Extract" and "Alternative II" CD

Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning clubby masterpiece – one of the most soulful singles to come from the P&P studios, and a killer groove with some really wonderful vocals! The track moves along at a slightly mellower clip than the usual P&P groove – a sweet skipping midtempo groove that's flecked with some nice moogy instrumentation at the sides, and which is a perfect showcase for the deep deep soul vocals of Mary Clark! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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)".

Red Greg, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Excellent! The cut's a dancefloor classic – and it's got this wonderful little moogy instrumentation that's a perfect example of the genius of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael, who put the whole thing together, and who give the cut a real P&P funky flavor. A real killer, and one that we never tire of! 12-inch, Vinyl record
