✨✧ Soul SearchersWe The People ... LP
Sussex, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One the all time great funky albums of the 70s – a mad little record with a sense of rhythm and timing that was years ahead of its time! The Soul Searchers (along with Chuck Brown) later became known for their heavy-hitting Go Go work at the end of the decade – but here, they're a really free-thinking outfit with a lot of jazz in their funk – and a willingness to change up the beats and timings in ways that push the record miles ahead from an average funk outing. Tracks swirl around with an amazing intensity – supported by guitar work from Brown, organ from Hilton Felton, and some really great horns from Don Tillery and Lloyd Pinchback. The album features a wonderful remake of "Think" – plus the great originals "1993", "Soul To The People", "Blowout", and "We The People". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousStrange Breaks & Mr Thing 2 – More Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz & Soundtrack Breaks For Modern Living ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic funky follow-up to the first Mr Thing compilation from BBE – and a set that's equally filled with rare and soulful grooves! If we didn't know better, we'd swear he went into our crates and pilfered our own record collections – because the package contains plenty of overlooked cuts that we've loved for years, but which have never gotten their due – and not even all of them are from totally obscure pressings or small indie labels – just the kind of records that people pass over sometimes, because they don't know how great they sound! There's lots and lots and lots of deeply funky numbers on the collection – and the package really takes us back to the glory days when BBE compilations were always turning us onto something new – especially during the Keb Darge glory days. 2CD set features one mixed disc, one unmixed – with titles that include "Back Ground Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Searching For Soul" by Jake Wade & The Soul Searchers, "ABC" by Hot Butter & Soul, "Spooky Do" by Dick Walter, "The Horse" by Val Merral's Orchestra, "It's Just Begun" by Hot City Bump Band, "Sally" by Frank Pleyer Big Band, "Love Is Just A Word" by Johnny Griffith Inc, "Can't Stop Talkin" by Art & Ron, "Family Affair" by The Generation Gap, "Gacek" by Jerzy Milian, "Rockin Chair" by John L Watson with White Mouse, "Pink Panther" by Alan Tew, "Twinkle Stars Boo Galoo (live)" by Oscar Harris & The Twinkle Stars, "The Message" by Tinga Stewart, and "Pru Urebu" by The Rias Orchestra.

Charlie BrownWhy Is Everybody Always Pickin On Me? ... CD
Contact/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty unusual album – and one by an obscure player who's not to be confused with Charles Brown, the blues singer – or Chuck Brown, the leader of the Soul Searchers! This Charlie Brown is a tenor player – listed as obscure even in the notes to the session – which is a laidback set of soul jazz numbers which feature Chuck's tenor over backings by Horace Ott. The overall style is similar to some of Hank Crawford's work from the time, particularly his albums on Kudu – with a polished feel to the backings, offset by some gutsier work by the main soloist – and the group is pretty great, and features Neal Creque on piano, Richard Tee on organ, Pretty Purdie on drums, and Billy Butler on guitar. Titles include "Back On The Track", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", "Love The One You're With", and "(Funky) Sunny", probably the nicest track on the album. CD
(Part of the "Solid Records – Jazz Giants" series!)

✨✧ VariousBreaks – Original B Boy Street Funk & Block Party Classics ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice one! The folks at Harmless put together this stunning compilation of funky tracks with a good breakbeat sound to them, all packaged in a handsome cover with a good NYC old school look. There's probably a few on here that you do have on other comps, but the whole thing's a winner, with classics all the way through, and no dead tracks! Titles include "Scorpio" by Dennis Coffey, "Funky Mule" by Ike Turner, "24 Carat Black" by 24 Carat Black, "Funky Drummer" by James Brown, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Ashley's Roachclip" by Soul Searchers, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, and "Let A Woman Be A Woman, Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers.
