✨✧ ApiferaOverstand ... LP
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A jazz set, but one that's in a very Stones Throw mode – as the music here mixes jazz elements with more contemporary production elements, and blends together the live and programmed in a mighty nice way! The group's a quartet, most of whom have played on other Stones Throw albums – and the lineup features twin keyboard work from Yuval Havkin (aka Rejoicer) and Nitai Hershkovits, plus bass from Yonatan Albalak and drums from Amir Bresler – the last of whom has a great rhythmic pulse that often defines the energy of the set! Titles include "Notre Damn", "Pulse 420", "Four Green Yellows", "Iris One", "Lake Vu", "The Pit & The Beggar", and "Yaki's Delight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BreakestraDeuces Up, Double Down EP ... CD
Stones Throw, 2002. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The funky titans are at it again! "Deuces Up, Double Down" is a killer new track from the group – an original tune written by drummer Miles Tackett, with a heavy scattershot beat at the bottom, and lots of loud, fast, honking horns over the top. The guitar player's licking away at the cut too – and the whole thing's a delightful romping funky groove! CD version also includes a great cover of "Humpty Dump", the scratchy guitar groover originally cut by The Vibrettes – plus a "Funky Soul/16 Corners" medley, recorded live in LA at one of the band's smoking shows!

Jamael DeanBlack Space Tapes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2019. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Spiritual sounds from the west coast underground – and a set that's maybe got a few more avant moments than other records of this kind! Jamael Dean plays piano in a shifting landscape of musicians – one that features percussion and production from the great Carlos Nino, some strings from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, alto from Devin Daniels, tenor and flute from Aaron Shaw, and drums from Tim Angulo. The tunes rise up in a bold spirit that's not afraid to step outside at some key moments, but also returns more to the cosmic flow of the tunes – maybe a bit like Alice Coltrane might get free at some points on her Impulse Records albums, but never lose sense of the message. The sound here is very different than just a straight Coltrane mode, though – as there are some keyboard moments, and a real shift in mood between each track on the set – especially when there are slight vocal contributions from Sharada Shashidar. Titles include "Akamara", "Adawa", "Kronos", "Olokun", and "Emi". LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony Rhythm BandSoul Heart Transplant – The Lamp Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Heavy funk from the Indy scene of the late 60s – the lost album by one of the funkiest combos in the Midwest! Ebony Rhythm Band have an incredible sound that seems to take the heavy bottom of New Orleans Funk and merge it with the trippier elements of Detroit psychedelic soul – no surprise, considering they hailed from Indianapolis, a point about halfway between the two cities! The tracks on the set have a really great tripped-out groove – using lots of guitar and organ over heavy rhythms, in a style that's a bit like the Meters at times – but a lot freer flowing. The album features 2 tracks that formed the basis of one of the group's singles – plus a lot more that were never issued at the time, including a few by other incarnations of the combo! Titles include "Soul Heart Transplant", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Light My Fire", "Vanilla Fudge", "Get Yourself Together", "Drugs Ain't Cool", "Fool Am I", and "It's Too Late For Love". CD contains the bonus alternate version of "Light My Fire". CD

Heliocentrics13 Degrees Of Reality ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
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.

HeliocentricsQuatermass Sessions – From The Deep ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Not the original Quatermass EP from The Heliocentrics – but material that takes off in an even fuller, heavier direction – and which may well be the funkiest sounds we've heard from these guys so far! 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. Titles include "The Pit", "Gas Bottle", "Discovery", "Phenomenon Of Man", "Telekinesis", "Night & Day", "Looking Back", "Mass Psychosis", and "The Final Conclusion". CD

Knxwledge1988 ... CD
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

LionsThis Generation (7 X 7" box set – with download) ... 7-inch
Stones Throw, 2013. Near Mint- 7 x 7 Inch ... $34.99
Dubby funk with plenty of Jamaican undertones, but not exactly a reggae set – and instead the sort of wonderful criss-crossing of modes we've come to expect from The Lions! The group definitely owes a lot to the sound of 60s and 70s Kingston – yet their approach is different, too – a bit sharper and maybe more soul-based than the usual reggae group – in ways that belie some of the deep funk associations of the group members! Yet from a reggae perspective, the set's right on the money too – played at a level that easily rivals the Studio One sound back in the day, yet served up with production that's even sharper overall – thanks to work by Connie Price in the studio. Titles include "Birds On A Wire", "This Generation", "Picture On The Wall", "New Girl", "Pieces Of A Man", "Let's Go Out Tonight", and "Be Easy". 7-inch, Vinyl record

ProphetDon't Forget It (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
80s underground soul lives again in the hands of Prophet – an artist who recorded a bit back in the day, but who's reemerged in recent years with great new energy – thanks in part to strong support from the Stones Throw label! These tunes are heavy on beats, keyboards, and a really homegrown sense of funky soul – maybe proof that amidst some of the label's more contemporary experiments in similar territory, it's vintage artists who still do it best! And although Prophet might be a few years older than some of the rest, he's still got a very youthful vibe, and very distinct sound here – on titles that include "Human Like", "Be The One", "In My Ear", "Game To Make Love", "I Am I Is", "I Don't Care", and "So Much Love".

Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 12.99
A long-overdue second set from Quakers – and a set that's got even more intensity than their debut! Beats are by the core trio of Supa K (Katalyst), 7STU7, and Fuzzface (Geoff Barrow) – and there's a very old school vibe to most of the record – a focus on core elements on each track, with a nicely booming spirit that really sets fires to the lyrical contributions from a lineup that includes Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, Koreatown Oddity, Black Opera, Cysion, Bob Banner, Jeru The Damaja, YC, Super Vic, Jonwayne, and many others – flowing with more than enough sound to make you feel like you're not only hearing the next wave, but also finding a way to bring the past forward.

Frankie ReyesOriginalitos ... LP
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A set that definitely earns its title – given that it features freshly original keyboard instrumentals from Frankie Reyes – a musician who plays here unlike anyone else we can think of! The tracks are all quite spare – the keyboard (organ?) serving as both the rhythm and the melody – wrapped together with styles that evoke some of the sentiment of older Latin instrumentals, but in a style that's completely different – almost cosmic elements of Sun Ra on the keyboard, but warmer and more sentimental too – hard to explain, but breathtakingly beautiful! Titles include "Dolores Son Flores", "Dulzura Puertorriquena", "Ven Mamacita", "Tiempos Pasados", "En Mi Barrio", "Mis Abuelos", "Tirando Piedras", and "Alma De La Palma". LP, Vinyl record album

Sudan ArchivesAthena ... CD
Stones Throw, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
A great full length album from Sudan Archives – an artist whose name is a bit misleading – as there's nothing Sudanese or archival in her sound! But the vibe of the record is maybe captured by the image on the cover – as the music all features violin, but in a contemporary soul setting that's also blended with her vocals – set to backings that are crispy and cosmic, and which maybe live up to the best sort of future soul music we were hearing from the Stones Throw label over a decade ago! Yet the violin really changes things up – almost making a 4AD take on soul music at times, although with an overall style that's a lot more contemporary Cali than vintage London – on titles that include "Did You Know", "Iceland Moss", "Coming Up", "House Of Open Tuning", "Limitless", "Stuck", Honey", "Ballet Of The Unhatched Twins", "Down On Me", and "Pelicans In The Summer".

Twilite ToneClearing ... CD
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... $9.99
A really great Stones Throw debut from Twilite Tone – a Chicago beatmaker who's been one of our local heroes for years, and who finally gets the wider exposure he's deserved for way too long! Tone's done some big name work for Common, Kanye, and others – but here, he's very much at home inside his wonderful little shell – creating these endlessly creative sounds that really move past the obvious, and which showcase the kind of richer sonic palette we would have guessed from his record shopping habits over the years! There's a few 80s electro modes that come as a great surprise, mixed with harder core elements too – and there's occasional moments of sweetness, too – a emotional range that comes across nicely, on titles that include "N'Loveagain", "Tuff Love", "The Sound", "Do It Properly", "Taxi Cab Confessions", "The Lite", "Baby Steps", and "Ancestors & Angels".

Yesterdays New QuintetStevie – An Instrumental Tribute To Stevie Wonder ... CD
Stones Throw, 2004. Used ... $7.99
One of the most legendary albums of recent years finally gets an official release – and about time, too! The set is a loving tribute to the genius of Stevie Wonder – and features a batch of instrumental readings of Stevie's 70s classics, all performed by Madlib with a sweet mix of keys, vibes, and funk – one that even goes past the sublime quality of the originals! All tracks are extremely spare – no vocals, no over-production, just a focus on the jazzy core of the tunes – spun out in a style that hearkens back to the glory days of CTI – yet which somehow sounds even better. The album has circulated over the years as an unofficial "promo", due to clearance issues – but this set finally makes the full batch of tracks available as one stunning package! As great as you could ever hope – with tracks that include "Superstition", "Visions", "Golden Lady", "That Girl", "I Am Singing", "Too High", "Superwoman/Where Were You Last Winter", "Send One Your Love", "You've Got It Bad Girl", and more.

VariousFunky 16 Corners – 22 Earth Shattering Funk Bombs ... CD
Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
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.

VariousMidwest Funk – Funk 45s From Tornado Alley ... CD
Jazzman/Stones Throw, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
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.

✨✧ AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One)Tuxedo ... CD
Stones Throw, 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet modern take on post-disco funky soul from Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, working together as Tuxedo! It's a pretty remarkable creative step for both parties, and classy enough to make the Tuxedo moniker fit. We've known for years to expect the unexpected from Mayer Hawthorne – we never would've predicted his step from Stones Throw upstart to credible retro soul singer – but Jake One's boogie soul-styled production here is a bit of a surprise, and a sweet one at that. Lots of soulful synths back the solid vocals here, along with some strings and other cool touches. Without solid songs, it'd be a mere stylistic exercise, and the songs are slickly soulful and a total delight! Includes "Lost Lover", "RU Ready", "Watch The Dance", "So Good", "Two Wrongs", "Tuxedo Groove", "I Got U", "The Right Time", "Roll Along", "Get U Home", "Do It", "Number One" and more. CD

✨✧ Madvillain (Madlib & MF Doom)Madvillainy ... CD
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.

Nothing too sleazy here – as the music has a laidback vibe that never comes on too strong – and which instead has this gently soulful flow of keyboards, electronics, guitars, and some occasional acoustic bits on violin, piano, and even a bit of glass! The work is maybe a bit more understated than some of the other records on Stones Throw in recent years, but shares a similar Cali soul spirit – maybe more subtle, even when there's a bit of vocals, which are usually processed down into the grooves – delivered on a few of the album's tracks by KerenDun, Iogi, and Jenny Penkin. Titles include "Up In Flames", "Aura Sight", "Earth Talk", "Heartway", "Song For Spirit Flights", "Pre Memory Circle", and "Moon Hike". LP, Vinyl record album

Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great stuff, once again unearthed by Stones Throw! Third Unheard focuses with unflinching devotion on a scene that even the most diehard hip hop heads probably have little grounding in – Connecticut hip hop from the music's earliest days as an official movement – the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s! Much of it has that Sugarhill post disco, stream of conciousness block rockin' style, but what makes this stuff so charming is how completely raw and unadorned of studio polish it all is. You'll recognize a few of the names, particularly Mr. Magic, but this is for the most part the deepest of the early hip hop underground. Raw, unvarnished, and funky as hell! Tracks include "Rappin' With Mr. Magic" and "Potential 1980" by Mr. Magic, Pookey Blow's "Get Up And Go To School", "Earth Break" by Mr. Magic AND Pookey Blow, "Party People" (remix) by Rappermatical 5, "Be-Bop Convention Theme" by Forum Band, "I Just Wanna Dance" by Cuzz Band, "Showdown Rehearsal" (live) by 2nd Showdown Crew and more!

✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... CD
Stones Throw, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday".

Jazzman (UK), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
J-Rocc takes on Jazzman Records – the mighty mixer from Stones Throw, handling a host of rare funk and soul gems from previous Jazzman reissues! The set's very heavily mixed – so that J-Rocc's really going to town with the rare singles included – cutting them up, spinning them out, and really bringing fresh new flavors to the tunes – something you'll appreciate, even if you've got some of the original versions! There's no set list for the collection, but there's plenty of niceness throughout – and the whole thing has a very Stones Throw sort of feel – but with a Jazzman level of classic cuts for grounding.

DimlitePrismic Tops ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Abstract beats with a depth of global influences from Dimlite – the Swiss beatmaker/producer's debut for the Now Again/Stones Throw – and far reaching effort that covers a lot of aural atmosphere over its running time! Dimlite's work for Sonar Kollectiv was among the most forward looking on the roster, and that unpredictable approach is well served here. Glitchy synth sounds and bubbling electronic errata mix with more earthy rhythms and hazy melodies – with vocals that also give it a more grounded feel in spots, but this is adventurous and unpredictable in all the right ways. Titles include "Kalimba Sewathswamp/Kurt Feelings", "On The Same Picture" featuring vocals by Elan Tamara, "Firevomit (ODN)", "Elbow Flood", "Can't Get Used To Those (Afterlude)" and more. CD features the bonus "Elbow Flood" instrumental. CD

Rikki Ililonga & Musi O TunyaDark Sunrise (2CD set) ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 18.98
An amazing set that documents the early years of the Zamrock scene – the funk and psych informed Afro Rock pioneered by vocalist and African guitar legend Rikki Ililonga and his group Musi-O-Tunya in Zambia from 1973 to 1976 – and compiled beautifully in this great set from Now Again/Stones Throw! It's incredible stuff that blends fuzzed out guitar psychedelia, raw rhythms and brass-heavy funky soul. Ililonga's legacy is represented strongly on the record made by the group he founded, Musi-O-Tunya – who work with electric guitar, bass, sax, western and African drums and percussion – as well as the Zambia album, credited to Rikki Illilonga, in which he sings and plays all instruments except trumpet. The set also includes his Sunshine Love album, in which he sings and plays all instruments except bass and drums – and a it's got a rawer, bluesier psych soul approach overall. The CD version compiles most tracks from those albums plus Musi-O-Tunya's Wings Of Africa LP and bonus tracks from 7-inches from the time. 31 tracks on 2 CDs and comes a great, book-bound package with extensive liner notes by Eothen Alapatt and an interview of Ililonga by Eothen. Disc one includes Musi-0-Tunya tracks "Tsegulani", "Mpondolo", "Walk And Fight", "The Sun", "Dark Sunrise", "The Wings Of Africa", "Jekete Yamankowa" (Parts 1 & 2), "Mpulula", "Smoke" and more. Disc 2 features tracks from the Rikki Ililonga cuts "Sansa Kuwa", "Sheebeen Queen", "Stop Dreaming Mr D", "The Nature Of Man", "The Queen Blues", "Working On The Wrong Thing", "Sunshine Love", "Angel Black" and more.

MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... $5.99
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.

The mighty Maker takes a deep dip into the catalog of the Now Again label – using that Stones Throw offshoot's rich blend of African, Brazilian, psychedelic, funk, and soul reissues to come up with some fantastic grooves of his own! The work is partly in a hip hop mode, but also has some of the wider instrumental touches you'd guess from the samples used in the sound – and tracks shift between instrumental and vocal numbers – the latter of which feature contributions from Qwel, Roc C, Bishop Lamont, Guilty Simpson, Rich Jones, Edgewize, and others. Titles include "Any Time Any Place", "Heebie Jeebies", "Love Me", "Hardcore", "The Same Sound", "Milk", "I Just Want Happiness", "Paperback Author", and "It Feels Like Yesterday". CD

Joe TexHe Who Is Without Funk Cast The First Stone ... CD
Dial/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
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

Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $44.99 55.98
An overdue look at the lost Lamp Records – a crucially important indie soul label on the Indy scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a company that was never as big as Chess or Motown, but did a similar job of documenting its city's musical scene! Indianapolis was always a very diverse city – and gave the world bigger funk and jazz luminaries like Wes Montgomery or Funk Inc – but like most cities of its size, Indy also sported a rich underground of great singers and bands who were really trying to make it big – all really great artists who were captured in deep detail by the Lamp Records label! Now Again/Stones Throw have given us a slight look at this scene in the past – most notably with their reissues of work by Ebony Rhythm Band – but this is the first really detailed dig into the label, with a huge amount of material that's only ever circulated on very rare original pressings. The work is a great mix of group soul, funky cuts, sweet harmony, and even a bit of gospel – and titles on this 2LP set include "Somebody Please" by The Vanguards, "You Made My Everything" by Words Of Wisdom Truth Revue, "Hum Bug" by Diplomatics, "I Didn't Know" by Funder Cooper, "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What, "Everybody Who Wants To Be Free" by Amnesty, "Can I Call You Baby" by The Pearls, "Take Me" by Fabulous Souls, "High On The Hill" by Squidd, "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "See The Lord" by Mighty Indiana Travelers, "Huh" by Tony Black & Revolution Compared To What, "I'm Only Human" by Embers, "It Swells My Desire" by The PHDs, and "More Than I Can Stand" by Moonlighters.

VariousSoul Cal – Disco & Modern Soul 1971 to 1982 (CD & book) ... CD
Now Again/Soul Cal, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy CD & Book ... $9.99
An amazing compilation – a decade in the making, and filled with wonderful grooves – most of which have never appeared on CD or LP reissues! And while the music itself is already wonderful, the package also includes an amazing 80 page book, too – a rich research project that digs deep into the American underground of the 70s – and features a wealth of photos, images, and historical details on music that never got it's due back in the day! 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.

✨✧ Barbara KeithBarbara Keith (Warner) ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Connie Price & The KeystonesWildflowers (expanded edition) ... CD
Now Again, 2004. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A damn funky little album – and one of the best Stones Throw albums of the past 20 years! Connie Price & The Keystones are a modern group – but one who's steeped in all the older messed-up funky styles of their Stones Throw labelmates – even some of the offbeat psych and rock that the label has reissued from around the globe! There's a wonderfully tripped-out sound to their work – taking the core instrumentation of funky drums, choppy guitars, smoking keyboards, and soulful sax – and pushing it out with a Stark Reality-ish vibe that really makes the group stand out from the rest of the deep funk underground! The album's a brilliant debut that we'll be digging for years – and it also feature appearances by Malcolm Catto, and members of Funk Inc, Poets Of Rhythm, and The LA Carnival! Titles include "Sticks & Stones", "Sucker Punch", "The Buzzard", "Double Dutch", "Wild Flowers", "Tall Dry Grass", "Fuzz & Them", and "The Shadows Of Leaves". Expanded version features 9 more bonus tracks – including "Raga Doll", "Afro Som", "Hurricane Malcolm", "Hello I'm Inside Out", "Sticks Dub", and "Attack Of The Killer Penguins". CD

Covers and music inspired by the towering figure in Afrofunk – the great Fela Kuti – rare 70s material a few modern cuts recorded in Nigeria, Trinidad, Ghana, Colombia, Germany and America – some previously unreleased, and all wonderful representations of the far-reaching influence of Fela! A few tunes are solid takes of the Nigerian funk groove proper – but others carry the sound into cumbia, steel band and western funk styles – all of it exciting, hugely passionate and floor-shaking! The CD version is bound in a mini-hardcover book like package – with nice notes on Fela himself and the the influence he had on the material herein by Stones Throw/Now Again honcho Egon – and tracks include "Shacalao" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Woman Pin Down" by Dan Snatch And His Atomic 8 Dance Band, "Never Trust A Woman" by Bola Johnson, "Black Man's Cry" by Mosco Tiles Fonclaire Steel Orchestra, "Egbi/Black Man's Cry (Medley)" by Lever Brothers Gay Flamingos, "Comencemos" by Phirpo Y Sus Caribes, "Up Side Down" by Daktaris, "Lullaby For Lagos" by Whitefield Brothers and more.

Rare psychedelia from all over the world – rock, soul, funk and astral folk – styles flowing cohesively on a single compilation thanks to the killer melodies, hard drums & percussion, and the impeccable taste of the Now Again/Stones Throw team! 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. Amazing, hard grooving psychedelia for obscure rock and rare beat diggers alike! Titles include "Song Of A Sinner" by Top Drawer, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by East Of Underground, "Forge Your Own Chains" by DR Hooker, ""Don't You Feel Me" by Damon, "Two To Make A Pair" by The Strangers, "It's Not Easy" by Ofege, "Somebody's Calling My Name" by Baby Grandmothers and more. 15 tracks in all.

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.

Maybe the best Madlib-produced LP since the highest peaks of the prime Stones Throw era, and Freddie Gibbs is on fire throughout! Each one does what he does best here and ups the ante. 'Lib is focused on crackling soul beats and hazy funk – masterfully utilizing vintage and contemporary sample sources from Donny Hathaway and Syl Johnson to Kaidi Tatham and The Heliocentrics – delivering the right kind of gritty headnodding vibe without compromising on his distinctive style. Freddie Gibbs is uncompromisingly raw and fiercely focused, varying the speed of his flow when the mood strikes, so what sounds like it might be an uncommonly inspired freestyle one second rolls into the most dexterous lyricism for the next couple minutes. Seriously strong stuff, with just a few guest appearances by Pusha T, Killer Mike, Anderson.Paak, Yasiin Bey & Black Thought. Titles include "Half Manne Half Cocaine", "Cataracts", "Gat Damn", "Education", "Crime Pays", "Palmolive", "Guannis", "Soul Right" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
