AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

J DillaRuff Draft – Instrumentals ... LP
Stones Throw/Fat Beats, 2003/2007. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
J Dilla at his grittiest, most rugged & raw – in both the production and rhyme realm – with all beats and rhymes by the Dilla himself! This set originally opened our ears to a different side of Dilla, a harder hitting aesthetic, with beats and grooves from out of leftfield that draw you in and hypnotize. Ruff Draft was originally released as a vinyl only EP for the European market, and it was tough to get ahold of from the get go – so hats off to Stones Throw for giving it the reverent re-release it deserves – fleshed out with bonus tracks! Titles include "Let's Take It Back", "Reckless Driving", "Nothing Like This", "The $", "Make'Em NV", "Crushin'", "Wild" (a previously unreleased track that's nothing short of mindblowing – a minimalist masterpiece), "Take Notice" and more. 10 tracks.

J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light It", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

✨✧ J RoccBeatitudes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2022. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
We love the cover on this one, which is an homage to the legendary run of gospel albums on Savoy Records back in the day – a fitting touch for the vibe of the record, which has J Rocc serving up a host of instrumental hip hop tracks that are all filtered with plenty of gospel touches too! The beats are wonderful – what we love from J Rocc, but somehow more uplifting – especially when he samples old singers and choirs and uses them in a really subtle way – almost replacing what might be keyboard lines with the righteousness of the vocals! Titles include "The Choir", "In Your Soul", "Don't Give Up", "The Preacher", "The Beast", "Listen To The Music", and "Joy & Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

J RoccWonderful Letter (orange smoke vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2022. New Copy ... $23.99 27.99
Not just a wonderful letter, but a love letter to Los Angeles – served up here in a style that maybe makes for one of the most evocative creations we've ever heard from J Rocc! There's a richness here that comes through on the very first track – almost an imagined LA from the past, at a time when the city had a few more problems – but given more than a few contemporary touches along the way, especially when some of the guests step into the mix – work from Koreatown Oddity, Med, Frank Nitt, Budgie, LMNO, and Key Kool – as well as older legends Steve Arrington and Egyptian Lover – whose appearance here really cements some of the 80s elements in J Rocc's conception. Titles include "LA Anthem", "Love & Dope", "Dancing With The Best", "All I Wanna Do (rmx)", "The Changing World", and "Flawless". LP, Vinyl record album

Stimulator JonesRound Spiritual Ring ... LP
Stones Throw, 2022. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
The title's a reference to a mis-heard Prince lyric back in the day – and it's clear that there's some influence from the purple one in the music – but at a level that's nicely distilled and taken into mellow-stepping territory that's mighty nice! The record's got a great way of bringing 80s elements future forward with a swirling sense of production – the intimacy of more personal projects by contemporary soul artists, who can deliver a grand vision of their own without needing to bring a full band into the studio! Tunes are trippingly soulful in a mighty nice way – and titles include "Sherbet Sky", "Arrive", "Pain Inside", "Peace Love Respect & Adoration", "Vilified", "Talk To You", and "All I Gotta Do".

✨✧ Knxwledge1988 ... LP
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A rock solid effort from one of the finer producers on Stones Throw at this stage in the label's esteemed history! If you expect 1988 to be throwback effort by the number title, think again, but he's not as predictable as that anyway. He sets an impeccable and unpredictable mood that stays rooted in adventurous instrumental hip hop – with tracks like "Learn" that feel like a contemporary instrumental hip hop take on late 70s Bob James jazz, to soaring hip hop soul with bright keys and vocal samples, even bits of 80s boogie funk that do feel at home on a record called 1988. Includes "Don't Be Afraid", "Do You", "Listen", "Makeitliveforever", "Be Safe", "Mindin' My Business" with Durand Bernarr, "Uonlygetone", "With (Reality)", "Awomanslifeislove", "Solivelive" and more. 22 tracks in all!

LA CarnivalLA Carnival Would Like To Pose A Question ... LP
Stones Throw/Now Again, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 27.99
Sweet jazzy funk – from the cornbelt of Omaha! The LA Carnival are one of those rarer-than-rare funk groups who not only never got their due back in the day – but also recorded a heck of a lot of great material that never even got issued! They have a totally great sound that bubbles in jazzy licks on trumpet, sax, and organ – next to tighter, funkier vamping on the rhythms – all of which makes for a killer approach to the groove that's surprisingly fresh, given the passage of three decades since the group's heyday. And leave it to the folks at Stones Throw – who know how to dig beyond the crates, into the earth, and come up with a lost slice of funk history that has made the world a much better musical place. They've lovingly remastered these great recordings from the early 70s, and have packaged the whole thing with a well-done set of notes that really goes into detail about this unique group, their amazing sound, and their obscure Nebraska origins! An instant funk essential – and one you'll be thanking yourself for buying for years to come. Titles include "Black Man's March", "Ron's Tune", "The Klan", "Color", "Flyin", "We Need Peace & Love", and "Blind Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Galt MacDermotGalt MacDermot In Film 1969-1973 ... CD
Kilmarnock/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
Mad funk from the great Galt MacDermot – a wonderful selection of obscure tunes from some of his best funky soundtracks! Galt's work on Hair has been sampled heavily by a variety of hip hop producers over the years – but even better is his work for less famous soundtracks, a good variety of which are sampled here in a wonderfully-done set that focuses on the truly funky tracks that Galt wrote for these films – and which gets past the sometimes-off tracks that can occasionally get in the way of his lesser soundtracks. The package is a total jam throughout – filled with tunes that have weird rhythms, moody keyboards, and the kind of offbeat approach to funk that's always made his work so great. There's only a few tracks from previously reissued soundtracks like Woman Is Sweeter and Cotton Comes To Harlem – plus lots lots more from weirder films that include American Express, Nucleus, Fortune & Men's Eyes, Moon Over The Alley, and Rhinoceros! In true Galt MacDermot funky fashion, there's lots of great drum work on the set from Bernard Purdie – and titles include "Golden Apples", "Coffin Ed", "Dead End", "Fragments II", "Tango", "Ed & Digger", "Duffer", "Bedroom", "Queenie's Theme", "Fortune & Men's Eyes", "Rhinoceros Theme", and "Never Die Desire Not".

✨✧ MadvillainMadvillainy 2 – Madlib Remix (plus download & 12-page comic booklet) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2008. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 19.99
Madlib's reworked, re-imagined and remixes of the mighty Madvillainy LP! The original album is arguably one of the greatest Stones Throw album ever, held up by many as one of the best indie hip hop albums of its decade if not all time – so Madlib is wise to take a freewheeling, fairly loose approach to this revisit. It's not so much a straight up remix album as it is a wild, unpredictable mash up of scattered Doom vocals from the classic LP with gritty, funky beats from Madlib's crates. It's definitely got an underground feel to it, and by no means a track for track remix effort – the vocals and some of the beats are familiar, but for the most part the dusty deck of beats are completely reshuffled – not as murky and ominously moody as the original album, and recast with an underground hip hop funk feel. Includes "Pow (Intro)", "No Brain", "Pearls", "Light Of The Press", "Boulder Holder", "Borrowed Time", "Costa2Coast", "Draino", "Bejezus", ""Monkey Suit", "Can't Reform M", "Running Around", "Never Go Pop", "The Cold One" and more.

The full length debut of Houston's Peyton – a soft-voiced soul singer who works here with some beautifully laidback rhythms and cool, crispy instrumentation that really augments the personal qualities of her tunes! Peyton often just lets her vocals flow along with the tunes – never pushing too far to overstate her presence, but marking the tracks with this very intimate quality that really has the young singer putting it all out there on her first full record. Titles include "Big Flexer", "Haters", "Let It Flow", "What Did I Do", "Perfect Peach", "Pure Imagination", "Don't U Wanna Fly", and "Ppl Say". LP, Vinyl record album

Stones Throw, 2022. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
A wonderful debut from Silas Short – a Milwaukee native, but an artist whose sound fits right in with the laidback flavors of Cali soul we usually expect from the Stones Throw label! Silas has a way of folding his keyboards over his guitar over his bass and drums here in a really great way – letting the rhythms pulsate gently while he delivers the vocals with a quality that's very earnest and down to earth – often folded into the music too, but with this little crackle that has all the right lyrical moments sparking out of the songs in a really cool way. Titles include "Drawing", "Joint Identity", "Queen Of Paisley", "Bogus", "Cloudy June", "Rooms", and "Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Sudan Archives looks a lot hipper on the cover than any prom queen we ever had in high school – and on this amazing set, she sounds a heck of a lot better than any of them did too! The album's maybe the full flowering of all the promise that Sudan gave us the last time around – a rich blend of soulful modes in many styles, and the kind of strong statement from the underground that could have a way of shaping soul music strongly in years to come – as the singer is both more collaborative and more personal this time around – working with producers who include Hi-Tek, MonoNeon, and Simon On The Moon – but also opening up herself a lot too. Titles include "Selfish Soul", "Home Maker", "Is This Real", "Ciara", "Freakalizer", "Homesick", "Milk Me", "TDLY", "It's Already Done", and "Copycat". CD

TriorganicoConvivencia ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... $7.99
Amazing work from Triorganico – an acoustic trio with deep respect for Brazilian grooves from years past – stepping out here as one of the most striking projects we've ever heard from the Stones Throw family of labels! There's a quality here that takes us right back to some of our favorite Brazilian instrumental moments – such as the earliest work from Egberto Gismonti, the creative jazzy lines of Hermeto Pascoal, or the more complicated modernism of Baden Powell – all artists these guys clearly reference in their music, then move way beyond in their conception of a tune! Instrumentation is a beautiful blend of fragile elements – flutes, soprano sax, 7-string guitar, and percussion – used lightly, but with a great sense of rhythm – and an inherent warmth that will keep this record at the top of our pile for years to come. Titles include "Balloons", "Kathy", "Correndo", "El Commendante", "25 De Octobro Nostalgia", "Amphibious", "Ginga Carioca", "Tempo De Amor", "January 11th", and "Tiki's Take". CD

VariousFunky 16 Corners – 22 Earth Shattering Funk Bombs ... CD
Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 22 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What.

VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 1 ... CD
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
Sparsely furnished underground new wave from Europe and North America in the early 80s – the first official Minimal Wave compilation from Veronica Vasicka's Minimal Wave label and the arbiters leftfield funky errata at Stones Throw! This is some of the deepest and rarest music from the nascent electro rock and post punk electronic underground of the 80s – most purportedly released on scarcely distributed cassettes, if they were ever really distributed at all beyond the hands of the artists involved – which is fascinating and everything, but the real story here is the exceptional quality. It's incredible stuff! The sound is impeccable, those primitive synth melodies and drum machine rhythms sounding sharp and clear. The songs are great, too, maybe a bit darker edged than the mainstream of the time, and without the cheesy and poorly aging pop sheen of the hits, but we have no doubt the artists here could have been stars had the material reached the right people. It's all wholly ripe for discovery and we already can't wait for Volume 2! Titles include "Way Out Of Living" by Linear Movement, "Flying Turns" by Crash Course In Science, ""Tempus Fugit" by Tara Cross, "Mickey, Please" by Bene Gesserit, "Reassurance Ritual" by Das Ding, "Radiance" by Oppenheimer Analysis, "Who's Really Listening" by Mark Lane, "The Cabinet" by Das Kabinette and more. 14 tracks in all.

Now Again/Stones Throw, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
A treasure trove of lost funk – recorded live in Dallas in 1970, and issued now for the first time ever! The project was unearthed by the crate-digging funk fanatics at Stones Throw – and it's a perfect counterpart to their brilliant reissue singles of the past few years – live work from obscure groups of the Texas funk scene of the 60s, all recorded in concert, in a format that allows them to jam even more than they would on 45s! Tracks are often quite free-minded – grooving with a tightness that shows the groups' roots in the club scene that first got them playing heavy funk, but working here with a confidence and slight sense of experimentation that's quite befitting of their move to the bigger stage of the festival. The music is presented here complete with announcements and introductions – plus a great set of notes that really helps you understand the vibe of the music – and the material features performances by The Soul Seven, Apollo Commanders, Marchel Ivery Quintet, Black Maffia, and Les Watson & The Panthers – all groups you'll be happy to discover!

Now Again/Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Interstellar funk, cosmic jazz and spacey live band hip hop from Malcolm Catto & the Heliocentrics –incredible material from one of most mindblowing combos in the global hip hop funk underground! The tracks on Fallen Angels were compiled from vinyl only EPs on Now Again, as well as some previously unreleased tracks, and it's a pretty impeccable display of the diverse shades of soundscapes the group trades in. The drums and bass skew towards gritty classic funk, with distant, dusty organ groove, off kilter percussion, and unpredictable washes of sound. Includes both the instrumental and vocal versions of "Distant Star" with Percee P and Doom, plus the "Sirius B" remix with Vast Aire and "Before I Die" with Guilty Simpson – tracks that showcase their pretty much unrivaled abilility to bring their diverse style into a leftfield hip hop realm, plus the planet rocking jazz funk on "The Oracle" and "Dance Of The Dogons, Pt 2", plus "Space Time Girl", "The Gorn", "Vibrations Of The Fallen Angels" and Noise".

The music is stunning right from the very first heavy bassline and sharp drum crackle – more focused, more full-on, and more funky than before – with this mindblowing mix of super-tight rhythms and nicely trippy work on keyboards and guitar – all freaky and fuzzy, but always with a sense of purpose, too – and never just crazy for the sake of crazy! These guys really hit a new high with this set – simply wonderful, and at a level that has us falling in love with them all over again.

The most astral album ever on Stones Throw – written, produced, played and sung by the stunning Georgia Anne Muldrow – the deepest avant garde funky soul effort we've heard in years from anyone on a beathead record label this side of Dwight Trible! Georgia reportedly has personal roots that can be traced to the work of Eddie Harris and Phaoah Sanders – her father built instruments for the former and her mother performed with the latter. We believe it! Georgia's own work on keys, synths and other instruments has that soaring feel – as does her emotionally drifting vocals and free-spirited lyricism – but she shares a groove sensibility and liberal approach to the hip hop aesthetic with sometimes collaborators Platinum Pied Pipers and SA-RA. A legend in the making! Tracks include ""New Orleans", "Melanin'", "Wrong Way", "Feet", "Frames", "Lovelight", "Because", "West Coast Recycler", "Blackman", "Nowadayze" and more. CD

A fantastic second set from the team of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One – working here with some great help from Will Sessions on a number of tracks – an artist who really ups the funky ante of the record! The vibe is mostly in an early 80s funk mode – strong boogie grooves in the rhythms, and lean presentation that really fits the spirit of Hawthorne's vocals – which may well have found their best recent home on the album! We've always liked Mayer's music, but he sounds maybe even more spontaneous and charming here – part of a collaboration that keeps things bumpingly fresh throughout.

Jazzman/Stones Throw, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly one of the greatest funk compilations ever – and we're not just saying that because we're from the Midwest! The genius compilers at Jazzman spent years scouring the smaller cities of the American hinterlands – tracking down obscure musicians, long-lost labels, and nearly-gone master tapes – all to bring together 23 bits of rare funk that bristle with the same energy and excitement as the day they were first recorded! The package is incredible – not only filled with incredible tunes that somehow manage to push the boundaries and redefine our understanding of classic funk from the time, but also doing so in a package that's filled with liner notes that offer more information on the artists than probably their own mothers know! Plus, the set's also got some previously unissued numbers as well – making it a must-have for any funk fan, even if you've somehow managed to track down original copies of some of these choice bits! Titles include "Whip It" by The New Establishment In Soul, "Let's Do It Today (full version)" by The Us, "Pushin To The Top" by Markus Kelly & The Impassions, "Sissy Walk" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Tell Her" by Fred Williams & The Jewels Band, "The Hatch" by The TMGs, "Boots Groove" by The Soul Tornados, "Po Boy's Dream" by Illinois Connection, "It's Not You For Me (live)" by Billy Joe Holloman, "Funky In Here" by Dayton Sidewinders, "Master Groove" by Henry Peters & The Imperials, and "A Day In The Life" by Chocolate Snow.

"Dance For Life" is a stuttering tune that's propelled by off kilter synth & keys and oddly syncopated beats. "Patria Mia" takes Latin-y approach that's a world away from the the former tune! "Evildoers" is another strong tune with a future soul sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
The full length debut of Mayer Hawthorne for Stones Throw – with both classic Motown and 60s & 70s Detroit indie soul influences, done the right way, and all of it wonderful and true to his heroes – after some promising early singles, we can now say emphatically that Mayer Hawthorne is indeed the real thing! On some of this material, Hawthorne is a one man soul band, with the tunes stripped to a gritty, raw soul essence – and on other tunes he gets some assistance on brass, strings and keys – pulling off a number of modes with equally excellent results. He evokes Curtis Mayfield when he gets the falsetto going, but other touchstone influences are apparent – a couple of the more uptempo tunes sound like they could be late 60s Temptations b-sides. Mayer may look like Dwight Schrute on the cover, but don't be fooled – his love for soul music is true and unironic, and he has the chops to pull it off!

✨✧ J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... CD
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

✨✧ John Carroll KirbyDance Ancestral ... LP
Stones Throw, 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly sweet set of keyboard grooves from John Carroll Kirby – an artist who's always a bit hard to peg, given that he changes things up with each new record – but one who's really delivered some greatness with this special set! The record's got older keyboard modes at play, with lots of 80s touches especially – but this isn't retro funk or sound library styles – as the music has a very original vibe, with a special energy that's all its own – mellow drums on most numbers by Jamire Williams, and even a guest appearance by Laraaji, which might give you an idea of some of the vibe going on here. Titles include "Tiptoe To The Grave", "Frog Life", "Ghost In A Mist", "Pause On The Ancient Ballcourt", "Pan's Dance", and "Messages In Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Will the rich reservoir of lost funk dredged by the diggers at Stones Throw/Now Again ever dry? Let's hope not! Michael Liggins and the Super Souls are another unearthed treasure, led by Michael's fiery flute! "Loaded To The Gills" was recorded in 1969 – and combines the furious JBs rugged funk style with a very catchy, almost hummable psychedelic groove! The origins of furiously funky "Function Underground" by We The People on the flip are more mysterious – as the personel is a bit of a mystery, with the twin sax riffing by Liggins and Sam James being the only recorded credits – but it's a great track all the same? We'd love to know whose clapping those funky drums, though! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Stones Throw, 2004. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Stones Throw sci-fi masterpiece – one that was destined for greatness from conception, but we're still pretty well blown away by the final product! MC Doom and beatmaster Madlib couldn't be better suited for a collaboration. As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last couple years, he's always needed a good editor – and Madlib brings nothing but the best sci-fi sound collages, scratches, and titanically driving funky beats – the grooved out 70s side of 'Lib's personality is wisely given a powder, while in the company of a vocal presence that's as insane as Doom. When it's not so pounding, the sound drops into the kinda gloomy, murky crackle of earliest Wu Tang. This is easily the best album of its kind since Dr. Octagon tore the flood gates open. Essential!!! "The Illest Villains", "Accordian", "Bistro", "Raid" feat Medaphoar, "America's Most Blunted", "Rainbows", "Curls", "Money Folder", "Hardcore Hustle","Fancy Clown", "Supervillain", "All Caps", "Rhinestone Cowboy" and more.

Wicked electric funk from Ahmad Miller – aka Madlib, aka Yesterday' New Quintet! The feel of the record is very much in the vein of the Yesterdays New Quintet singles – a fluttering mix of vibes, Fender Rhodes, keyboards, and funky percussion – kind of like the best bits of a classic 70s CTI session, or the best stripped down and electric Ahmad Jamal albums! The whole thing's instrumental, with a really mellow funky chilled out vibe – and the whole thing's great! Titles include "Now Or Later", "Traffic Zone", "Arroyo", "Little Angel", and "Windy C".

A stunner of a debut EP from Georgia Anne Muldrow – the first, and to date the only female singler on Stones Throw! Georgia may be a somewhat familiar name to fans of the SA-RA Creative Partners and Platinum Pied Pipers – as she's collaborated with both camps. She also shares an affinity with them and the late, great Jay Dee for 70s soul jazz-inspired grooves and an abtract approach to contemporary soul. It's a firm soulful backdrop that really sets Georgia apart. While the spacey keys, hypnotic beats, and all around atmospheric sounds swirl, her vocal delivery and lyricism are upfront and down to earth. Nice stuff! 7 tracks including the intro: "Larva", "Nothingness", "Hey", "Lo Mein", "Demise" and "Cool World". CD

Todd keeps things in territory that almost recalls early Timmy Thomas work from the 70s – but with a vibe that's more laidback, and definitely more in the 21st Century mode you'd expect from Stones Throw – gently grooving, and nicely tuneful, but in a subtle way – on cots that include "No Classification", "Tiny Chiffon", "Triangles", "Fanatic", "Absolute Time & Space", "Dream With You", "Show Me", and "Grab Your Guts".

A now-legendary compilation – an early effort to reissue funk on the Stones Throw label – and a set that virtually gave birth to all the fantastic projects they've done under the Now Again banner over the years! Compiler Egon has gone through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos – and has come up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum – and the whole thing is a massive dig into the funky 45 underground – featuring a few groups who rose to new fame over the years, thanks to the legendary status of this project!

A bit more of a stripped-down set than other work that Benny Sings has given us in recent years – definitely a record with the vibe of the beat tape promised in the title – but one that still has some of the soulful elements that Benny's given us on other records too! The hip hop element is stronger here than usual, right down to the record's guests – who include Koreatown Oddity, Cola Boyy, Mocky, St Panther, Rae Khalil, and others – and Benny put the album together out of elements that weren't used in the final version of his album Music – but which still carry some of the soulful currents of that set.

A sublime blend of jazz and Yoruba influences – served up here by keyboardist Jamael Dean with a sound and style that's all his own! Most of the tracks feature vocals from Sharada Shashidhar, but used in a wordless style that blends in beautifully with the instrumentation on the record – music from players who include Aaron Shaw on saxes, Zekkereya El Maghharbel on trombone, and Carlos Nino on piano – all working in a west coast spiritual style that certainly lives up to Nino's roots on the scene, and Dean's own legacy working with Kamasi Washington. There's some great other elements along the way – harp, bassoon, oboe, and other surprise – all used with a subtle sense of majesty that really elevates the whole sound – on titles that include "Galaxy In Leimert", "Osun", "Overstood", "Sango", "Ifa", "Akoda", "Odo To Da Iwa", and "Ori Apere".

If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at the core, but it's also filled with loads of amazing sounds – instruments tuned weirdly, played weirdly, and produced weirdly – so that over the heavy drums, there's often lots of freaky, fuzzy bits and tripped-out sounds – in ways that make the record feel like some lost acid trip outtakes from the Westbound studios of the early 70s – or like some obscure funk band that dropped acid at Andy Warhol's loft! The packaging offers up a visual example of what your ears will be going through when you tune into the music – and titles include "Mysterious Ways", "Collateral Damage", "Black Sky", "Calabash", "Path Of The Black Sun", "Mr Owusu I Presume", "Eastern Begena", and loads of cool interlude tracks too.

A really mind-bending collection of African grooves – one that digs deep into the West African scene of the early 70s – and comes up with a massive batch of tunes that really opens up our understanding of the music! The sound here isn't just 70s Afro Funk – as the tunes include a range of tripped-out styles that make the best use of electric instrumentation, psychedelic production, and important influences from American soul artists at the time. There's some amazing guitar on some of the best tracks – ringing out with a sound that's chromatically complex while also being tripped-out and funky – in a way that complicates the rhythms without totally taking them apart. If you've dug the tunes on previous sets like Africa Funk or Ghana Soundz, this is one to take that sound to the next level – and really open up your ears! Titles include "Keleya" by Moussa Doumbia, "Love's A Real Thing" by The Super Eagles, "Minsato Le Mi Dyihome" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou Dahomey, "Porry" by Sorry Bamba, "Allah Wakbarr" by Ofo & The Black Company, "Sanjina" by Orchestre Regional De Kayes, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, and "Zinabu" by Bunzu Sounds.

Tunes move nicely between 60s and 70s funky soul modes, but often with a more complex, contemporary vibe on the rhythms – and although the set features guest work from Gizelle Smith and Gift Of Gab, Eric hardly needs any help to make a strong statement on his own. Titles include "Bad Luck", "Closer To The Spirit", "I Wanna Ride", "Spiders", "Get Next To You", "Forward", "Merry Jane", and "Your Life Is Up To You".

Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 22.99
Throw away all of your other 60s psychedelic albums – because with this massive 2CD set, you'll hardly need them! The Chocolate Watchband were one of the key groups of the California scene of the 60s – a hard-rocking outfit that emerged in the garagey psyche years, and worked in the same south bay scene as Count Five and Syndicate Of Sound. Yet unlike either of those bands, Chocolate Watchband never scored as big on the charts – and also had a harder, rougher, edgier sound that showed what a young group could really do when given the space. There's a Stones-like sense of power here – especially on the rougher, blusier numbers – but also a Love-like sense of tightness and desire to hone the power of the guitar into a key force for the youth of the 60s. And although the group's discography has been slightly mysterious for years, this 2CD set more than corrects any problems – by offering up the full scope of the group's work – including singles on the Uptown and Hanna Barbera labels, material from their Tower LPs, later unissued cuts – and full notes on everything, including those studio sessions that didn't always feature all the members of the group. 43 tracks in all – with amazing notes, photos, and details on the music!

Forge Your Own Chains, simply put, is one of the best ever compilations of its kind. A few of the tracks have been reissued in some capacity and have recognizable names to rare psych and funk collectors – it's to Now Again's credit that they're going for a great experience rather than simply compiling the deepest, darkest rarities – but that said, all this stuff is obscure in the grand scheme and totally amazing. It features tracks from the US, Colombia, Sweden, Iran, Nigeria and beyond – tracks by Ofege, East Of Underground, DR Hooker, Baby Grandmothers, Ana Y Jaime, The Strangers and more.

The set's based around the groundbreaking series of Soul Cal 12" reissues put together by Stones Throw about a decade ago – wonderful records that unearthed rare grooves that fall beautifully in a space between funk and club – almost all originally issued on tiny little labels from all over the US, but working together to create a rich vibe in the set. Given the book, there's a Numero-like heft to the whole thing – although the range of grooves is even greater than one of their collections – and titles include "Ecology" by Anubis, "You Can Be A Star" by Luther Davis, "Don't Get Discouraged" by UPC All Stars, "Things Cannot Stop Forever" by Stanton Davis, "Free Your Mind" by Record Player, "Get Down" by Freedom Express, "Keep Running Away" by Clifford Nyren, "Love Is" by Leon Mitchison & The Eastex Freeway Band, "What It Takes To Live" by Key & Cleary, "I'm Gonna Miss You Girl" by Ellis & Cephas, "It's A Bad Feeling" by Mixed Sugar, and "Put A Smile On Time" by Rhythm Machine.

A really wonderful album from the lovely Barbara Keith – a singer who's a bit folksy at points, but also has all the cool Cali touches you'd expect from the canyon scene at the time – that special blend of elements that can make an early 70s album like this such a unique treasure! Barbara sings lead vocals, and provides acoustic guitar – and backing shifts from track to track, and features great contributions from folks like Spooner Oldham on Fender Rhodes and Danny Kootchmar and Lowell George on guitars! With company like that, you'll get a good idea of the style – a mode that's faithful to roots, but really pushes things forward – and with an approach that's maybe more subtle than some of Barbara's male contemporaries, but in a nice way. Titles include "Detroit Or Buffalo", "Shining All Along", "The Road I Took To You", "The Bramble & The Rose", "Rolling Water", and "A Stones Throw Away". CD

A truly incredible overview of 70s Indonesian funk, rock and psychedelia infused recordings – and it's beautifully put together, to boot – one of the very best compilations yet from Stones Throw's Now Again branch! There's an undercurrent of funk to most of this material, but it's always topped off with prog & psych rhythmic heaviness and dexterity, and usually done with passionate, feverish vocals. The story of Indonesian underground music of the time is a complicated one, and one that's been hard to come by outside of the region, given the difficult political circumstances of the time. This amazing set does a tremendous service for this music. Essential! Includes "Haai" by Panbers, "Anti Gandja" by The Brims, "Bad News" by Rollies, "People" by Super Kid", "Evil War" by Shark Move, "Shake Me" by Aja, "The Promise" by Rhythm Kids, "Uang" by Duo Kribo, "Pantun Lama" by Murry Lama, "Hear Me" by Golden Wing, "Candle Light" by Beny Soebardja And Lizard and more. CD
(Out of print. Packaged with a thick, oversized booklet of notes and photos. A completely terrific set from the sounds to the packaging!)

✨✧ David Axelrod & OthersEdge – David Axelrod At Capitol Records 1966 to 1970 ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the genius of David Axelrod – the groundbreaking producer who recorded some incredibly hip albums at Captiol during the late 60s, but who's now only finally getting his due! Axelrod brought a whole new sensibility to the studio in his day – an approach that really stripped down the overly-cluttered modes of the era of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson, and which went instead for a spacious approach to the music that seemed to use silence as heavily as it did sound! Axelrod's genius was heard most famously on key 60s recordings by Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls for Capitol, but while at the label, he also got the chance to cut some incredibly mind-blowing albums on his own – and to work with some other artists who really benefited from his amazing touch in the studio. This set's a masterpiece – and it features 15 Axelrod numbers from the Capitol years – all hand-picked by Egon of Stones Throw (himself an Axelrod expert), and supported by comments from David himself! Titles include "House Of Mirrors" and "The Edge" by David McCallum, "Theme From The Fox" by Don Randi, "Tensity" by Cannonball Adderley, "Pula Yetla" by Letta Mbulu, "Lifetime Monologue" and "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, and "Warning Talk (parts 1 & 3)", "The Smile", "The Mental Traveller", and "The Fly" by David Axelrod himself.

✨✧ G & D (Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins)Message Uni Versa ... CD
Look, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut double team effort from G & D – aka Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins – two of the most stubbornly unclassifiable hip hop soul eccentrics on the Stones Throw roster – working here on the Look label! Both Georgia and Dudley are responsible from some of the most out efforts on Stones Throw – so we were a bit surprised at how straight forward & catchy the Message Uni Versa set turns out. The duo trades lead vocals, with some P-Funk inspired rubbery bass funk in the beats, with lyrics that touch on the spiritual and strident, but remain playful. Nice stuff with recognizable traits from the earlier work, but still stands out! Titles include "God Unit', "On One", "Peace Of Mind", "Time", "Found", "U", "All 4 U", "Good Morning Amerikkka", "War Drums", "The Stomp", "Poppa's Song", "MGD", "Stronger", "The Message" and more.

✨✧ FredFred Series Vol 1 – Madlib (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mad About Records (Portugal), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A jazzy tribute to the mighty Madlib – one that serves up a swirling mix of vibes, Fender Rhodes, and drums that really remind us of some of his best early side projects in the early days of Stones Throw! The groove is nice and lean, and Fred's at the helm of the group on drums and percussion – playing with this nice sense of splashy echo that really makes the live instrumentation resonate with the kind of beats Madlib might have delivered – while the vibes and keyboards do all sorts of wonderful things too, and the record sparkles from work on saxes and flute as well! Really beautiful stuff, and a record worthy to carry the name of the great one in its title – with tracks that include "Road Of The Lonely Ones", "Catchin The Vibe", "Keeper Of My Soul", "Lakers", "Julani", "Microphone Mathematics", "The Front", and "MHB".

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was such a thing – one of the greatest hip hop producers alive, given carte blanche with the source beats of the century! Madlib's Blue Note crates are heavily weighed in the mid 60s through mid 70s electric beats that often get the shaft in mainstream jazz round-ups, but floor the beathead world into overdrive. Re-interpretations, remixes, and revisions are spliced seamlessly with the source samples, creating a whole new world where hip hop and late model live funk not only co-exists with classic Blue Note jazz, but it actually draws a linear transition between the 2 genius art forms. Beautiful stuff – if the album isn't the most original idea to come along all of these years into the hip hop & jazz underground, it's certainly one of the most perfectly realized projects of its kind, ever! It's one for the time capsule – easily one of Madlib's masterpieces, and pure funky sample wizardry by any standard! Includes Monk Higgins' "Slim's Return" interpreted by Ahmad Miller and DJ Lord Such on cuts, "Donald Byrd's "Distant Land", "Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Bounce", Yesterday's New Quintet's adaptation of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", Madlib Invazion's "Funky Blue Note", the Joe McDuphrey Experience take on Horace Silver's/Herbie Hancock's "Peace/Dolphin Dance" and lots more.

✨✧ Joe TexHe Who Is Without Funk Cast The First Stone ... CD
Dial/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Joe Tex is definitely not without funk on this sweet little set – a smoking TK Records session that carries strongly from the vibe of his "I Gotcha" years! Longtime producer Buddy Killen is still on deck to keep everything tight and right – a mix of Joe's southern soul roots with some sharper elements of the 70s – served up here at a level that may well be one of the most perfect blends of all the great Joe Tex styles – even though the record itself has kind of a hokey title and cover (which seems to have a bunch of white folks, obviously "without funk", ready to throw stones at Tex!) Joe wrote all the lyrics himself, and the few mellow moments have a wonderfully heartbreaking quality. Titles include "Loose Caboose", "Finger Popped Myself Into The Poor House", "How Do You Spell Relief", and "Who Gave Birth To The Funk". CD
