✨✧ VariousBackstreet Brit Funk Vol 1 – The UK's Finest Underground Soul, Jazz Funk, & Disco Compiled By Joey Negro ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great look at an under-discovered scene, at least on our side of the Atlantic – the wealth of club and funk tracks from the UK scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – served up here by the great Joey Negro, who's given us more than a few great grooves of his own over the years! The sounds here are in more obscure territory than the earliest work by Incognito, but come from a similar vein – a real love of the best styles of American soul, funk, and club of the 70s – but served up in modes that are sometimes more underground, given the smaller circulation, and different cultural makeup of the British scene. A few grooves have some great electro touches, others have warmer jazzier instrumentation – and titles include "Summer Grooves" by Mirage, "Keep In Touch" by Freeez, "Trip To Your Mind" by Hudson People, "The Wiggle" by Stikki Stuff, "Zero One" by Surface Noise, "Sore Lip" by Ritual "Express" by 52nd Street, "Parisienne Girl" by Incognito, "Latin Dream" by The Antilles, "Bentley Boogie" by Ed Bentley, "I Wanna Dance" by The Cool Notes, "You Know Too Much" by MBT, "You Don't Care About Our Love (Joey Negro edit)" by China Burton, "No Secret Affair" by Style X, "Never Let You Go" by Savanna, "Orange Groves" by Ranson McKenzie & Friends, and "Better Things To Come (Joey Negro edit)" by Nigel Martinez.

Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah BandDr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the most creative club acts of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band! Before starting his Kid Creole & the Coconuts combo, August Darnell worked to great fame with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – kind of a campy, jazzy ensemble – one that worked with a 20s aesthetic over a disco groove! There's a fair bit of acoustic instrumentation in the rhythms, and lots of those choppy, scratchy lines that we love so much in the Kid Creole work – all of which makes for a very nice change from the usual, especially in the late 70s mainstream. Darnell and Cory Daye are the main vocalists, and Darnell wrote all the lyrics for the album – on titles that include "Cherchez La Femme", "I'll Play The Fool", "Sour And Sweet", "We Got It Made", "Hard Times", "Sunshower", and "Betcha The Love Bug Bitcha".

✨✧ Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah BandDr Buzzard's Savannah Band Meets King Penett ... LP
RCA, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Very unique work from Dr Buzzard's Savannah Band – a set that bears all the unmistakeable touches of group leader August Darnell! The set's definitely got the older aesthetic that Darnell brought to his work at the time – possibly even more so than the group's first album – and it's also got a wonderfully acoustic approach to the music, one that uses older jazz inflections mixed with rootsier percussion – almost a late 70s club update of older swing and Latin modes! The tunes are beautifully penned too – most often starting out with a real sort of 30s or 40s style, then sweeping nicely into more of a 70s groove – but always without any sense of gimmick or trickery. Vocals are by the lovely Cory Daye, with a bit of help from Darnell – and titles include "Transistor Madness", "Organ Grinder's Tale", "Mister Love", "The Gigolo & I", "Nocturnal Interludes", and "I'll Always Have A Smile For You".

✨✧ Nina SimoneNuff Said ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album from Nina – mostly recorded live at the Westbury Music Fair, with a hip mix of jazz, soul, and folk that's stretched out in a slightly informal setting that always brings out the best of Nina's vocals. Titles include "The Backlash Blues", "Please Read Me", "Sunday In Savannah", "Why? (The King Of Love Is Dead)", and the nice jazzer "In The Morning". Plus, the album also includes one straight soul number – "Do What You Gotta Do", with some great arrangements by Horace Ott. LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)
