VariousDown & Wired Vol 6 – A Dose Of Psychedelic Funk & Blue Eyed Soul ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 29.99
A great set of work from a space between the genres – music that's often by rock groups, but who have a very soulful sort of sound – serving up tunes that are sometimes their own take on soul hits of the time, sometimes original material – and always with the sort of funk and soul that's promised in the title! Perfect Toy is one of the few labels around that seems to continue to dig deeply for material we never would have discovered otherwise – and that's definitely the case this time around – as you'll hear on Volume 6 cuts that include "Bang Bang" by What's Happening, "Evil Woman" by Ron Lynch & Bene Regesh, "Take It Low" by Raiders, "Fresh Dirt" by Staff & Management, "Black Time" by Klaas Craats Six, "War" by Hercules & The Black Majic, "Prisoner" by Mike Peace & Filet Of Soul, and "Hardluck" by Snapdragon.

VariousNatural Resources 3 ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $22.99 28.99
A really unusual take on the funky compilation – as DJ Roman Blocker isn't afraid to go very far in search of a groove – and has clearly turned up some of these tracks from records that most folks wouldn't have even thought of touching! The work is all funky soul, but it's clear that most of the artists aren't ones you'd necessarily put into that category – and our hat's off to Roman for having the skills to wade through so many different records and pull together cuts like these – none of which we think we've ever heard before! The vibe is very much in keeping with the deeper digging of the Perfect Toy label – and titles include "Not My Boy" by Billy Gee & The Whole Shebang, "Out Of The Darkness" by Blues Inc, "Driftin" by Destiny, "Here I Am" by Bluebird, "Silly" by Creation, "Struggling Ghetto Woman" by Jeffrey Gatierh, "Of You" by KP Clay & The Sound Express Band, and "Blue Lagoon" by Carnaby Square.

✨✧ Bobby ColePoint Of View (with bonus download) ... LP
Concentric/Perfect Toy (Germany), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to emerge as a serious vocalist with a rich talent for penning interesting and witty little tunes. The album's got Bobby singing in a style that's halfway between Matt Dennis and Mark Murphy – with the sophisticated talents of both in place, and perhaps a bit of the wit of Bob Dorough or Roy Kral. The core album is completely brilliant – the kind of off-kilter vocal record we die for – and every track's a fresh original by Bobby! The original album features Bobby on piano and vocals, with only bass and drums behind him – and titles include "You Can't Build A Life On A Look", "Heat", "You Could Hear A Pin Drop", "Change Of Scene", "A Perfect Day", "Elegy For Eve", and "Status Quo".

✨✧ VariousCreative Musicians – A Collection Of Highly Underrated Gems From 1963 To 1976 ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally great collection of grooves with a real range of material – nearly all fresh to our ears, and the kind of record that really makes us sit up and take notice! The set's got a loose approach to the selections – in that it features tracks from American and European sources, and easily blends together tunes from soul, jazz, funk, and easy records – but that's what makes it so great, and so fresh, as the tracks stand wonderfully back to back, sounding like a hip club night at some far-away place, the kind of all-great set that has you keep getting out of your chair, walking up to the DJ, and saying "Sorry to bother you again, but what's that track you're playing?" Titles include "Creative Musicians" by Lyman Woodard, "Stop" by Lonette, "Shabazz" by Rhoda Scott, "Don't Boom Boom" by Lillian Hale, "The Barracuda" by Leonard King & The Soul Messengers, "Questions (parts 1 & 2)" by Pat Stalworth, "Concentrate" by Willie Tee, "Mabusso" by Orchester Ambros Seelos, "Jumping" by Charlie Antolini, and "Highway 101" by John Barry. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert. Cover has light wear on one corner, but is great overall.)

✨✧ VariousCreative Musicians 2 – More Highly Underrated Masterpieces From The Funk Era ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible batch of funky jams – a seemingly disparate range that burns together beautifully! The set kicks off in appropriately grimy fashion with Jimmy Lynch's "F**king Up" – a gutterfunk blast that would make the JBs blush – and the energy carries throughout the rest of the set! Curator Florian Keller's track list features powerhouse soul, percussion & keys instrumentals, psychedelic flourishes, soul grunts, and leftfield numbers from funky funky Europe! 19 tracks in all, including "Candy Man (edit)" by Josephine James, "Momma Momma" by Betty Barney, "You're Blowing My Mind" by "Bobby Wayne", "Give Me Mercy" by Ruff Francis, "Manifesto" by James Lewis, "Somethin' Going Wrong" by Malcouns, "And I Love You" by Darling Dears, "Love Is All You Need" by Madeline Bell, "Galaxy Medley" by Frank Hatchett and more!

Morning ReignTaking Cover (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Garland/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Morning Reign were a fantastic group from the Northwest scene of the 60s – one who got their start in the same cover-heavy, party-rocking style of their more famous contemporaries – but who also really were able to let loose on some great original material of their own – presented here at a level that really shows the sophisticated potential of a group who never fully got their due! A few of the cuts here were issued as singles by Garland Records, but the set also features a fair bit of never-issued tracks that were recorded at the same time, almost all original numbers that bristle with a fresh sense of songwriting, and a way of pushing garagey rock elements to much farther limits – doing a lot more with the organ lines, and really having the vocals reach out a bit too. Titles include "Show Me", "Lucille", "Love It Or Leave It", "Your Lady", "Just Like You", But It's Alright", "Some Of Us", "Wish I", "Any Way That You Want Me", and "Feelin All The Things". One further note: This set features different material than the previous collection of work by the group on Perfect Toy Records. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPacific Breeze – Japanese City Pop, AOR, & Boogie 1976 to 1986 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Warm, soulful sounds from a crucial time in the Japanese music scene – a 70s moment when the nation was finding a special groove of its own – but one that also drew heavily from American soul and jazz as well! It's no secret that the Japanese have always had a great love of American sounds – but by the mid 70s, that longtime love had also turned into some great homegrown sounds of their own – as Japan developed a number of its own strong soul singers, who were often backed by the ever-growing array of great jazz musicians, particularly those of the fusion side of the spectrum. Plus, there also seemed to be a lot more criss-crossing between Tokyo and US studios at the time – particularly those on the west coast – which resulted in a special blend of sounds that had all the class and cool of the Japanese urban scene, but also some of the sunniness of the west coast too. That special mix of music is perfectly summed up here – in a collection that offers up plenty of cuts that were never issued outside of Japan back in the day – with vocals both in English and Japanese, and plenty of grooves that are perfect for any fan of fusion-styled R&B. Titles include the classic "LA Nights" by Yasuko Agawa – plus "Say Goodbye" by Hiroshi Sato, "I Say Who" by Tomoko Soryo, "Sports Men" by Haruomi Hosoni, "Midnight Driver" by Minako Yoshida, "Machibouke" by Tazumi Toyoshima, "Exotic Yokogao" by Hitomi Tohyama, "Lady Pink Panther" by Shigeru Suzuki, "Drip Dry Eyes" by Yukihiro Takahashi, and "Bamboo Vendor" by Masayoshi Takanaka.
