✨✧ VariousBackstreet Brit Funk Vol 2 – The UK's Finest Underground Soul, Jazz Funk & Disco Compiled By Joey Negro – Part 2 ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99
Fantastic grooves from the UK scene – most of them created during the better-known punk and post-punk years of the country – which might be why so many of them have remained so obscure over the decades! Yet taken together, these cuts represent a fantastic legacy in soul – upbeat grooves created by British artists who were clearly inspired by the hippest American jazz funk of the late 70s – working hard to create magical music with their own sort of voice, one that also occasionally borrowed elements from the unique post-colonial scene that was having an impact on other sides of English music. Many of the productions here are a bit less slick or smooth than American work of a similar nature – almost like some of the indie funky club 12" singles of the post-disco years – which is also when many of these cuts were created. As with the first fantastic volume, there's a great choice of cuts going on here – music that really illuminates the funkier side of the UK scene in the years before acid jazz, drum n bass, and other bigger global waves of grooves. Titles include "Non Stop Boogie" by Ritual, "Jazzin & Crusin" by Cache, "You Gotta Get It" by Congress, "Show Me You Care" by The Hudsons, "I've Got To Have You" by The Antilles, "Starlight" by Index, "All Night Long" by Cloud, "Ease Your Mind" by Touchdown, "Love Time Machine" by AD 2000, and "Stop & Think" by Paradise.

✨✧ VariousToo Slow To Disco Brasil – Compiled By Ed Motta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
This very hip series just got a whole lot hipper – thanks to the selection talents of Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta – who serves up a huge host of rare tracks from Brazil! Ed's always had a deep love of the AOR sound of the 70s – and he's not only a great soul singer on his own records, but also a hell of a record collector too – one whose knowledge of rare grooves goes way beyond most other folks we've ever met! This set opens up a huge amount of Brazilian soul we'd never heard before – music that takes off from the late 70s territory of Azimuth and Banda Black Rio, and soars with sweet jazzy grooves that are completely sublime – most from the 80s, and most by artists who've never gotten their due on the reissue market. Killer all the way through – with titles that include "Pra Voce" by Carlinhos & Soninha Querioz, "Acordes E Sementes" by Gelso Oliveira & Luiz Ewerling, "Joia Rara" by Brylho, "Rota Mar" by Zeca Do Trombone, "Clarear" by Roupa Nova, "Quero Pouco Quero Muito" by Filo Machado, "Guarde Minha Voz" by Sandra Sa, "Debora" by Altay Veloso, "Copacabana Suite" by Junior Mendes, "Renascendo En Mim"b y Don Beto, "Toda Manha Brilha O Sol" by Lucinha Turnbull, "Coisas Do Brasil" by Guilerhmes Arantes, "Mare" by Carlos Bivar, "Leao Ferido" by Biafra, "Mais Uma Chance" by Santa Cruz, "Rio Best Seller" by Cassiano, and "Se Eu Te Pego De Jeito" by Jane Duboc.

✨✧ VariousWestbound Disco ... LP
Westbound (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 24.99
Fantastic funky club from one of the hippest soul labels of the 70s – Detroit powerhouse Westbound Records – home to Funkadelic, The Counts, and some other very hip artists! Westbound disco isn't the same as the grooves you'd hear from Philly and New York – because the label started out in funk, and many of these tracks have an approach that's more fast funk than soaring strings – often recorded by groups who were hitting a funky 45 style in the earlier part of the 70s, then taking off with longer grooves with the rise of the club scene in the second half of the decade. As usual with Ace Records, the choice of cuts is great – and the package is as illuminating as it is groovy – with titles that include "Devil's Gun" by CJ & Co, "Wings Of Fire" by Dennis Coffey, "High On Mad Mountain" by Mike Theodore Orchestra, "You Brought The Sunshine (12" version)" by The Clark Sisters, "Beat Your Feet" by Eramus Hall, "Freaky People" by The Crowd Pleasers, "Feel The Need" by Detroit Emeralds, and "BYOF" by Fantastic Four.

✨✧ Louie VegaNYC Disco Part 2 ... LP
Nervous, 2018. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99
The mighty Louie Vega pays tribute to the New York scene that gave him a start – and which he helped transform with his classic club work of the past few decades! The set's a fantastic celebration of the spirit of disco, but is delivered with a very contemporary vibe – not straight house, but that warmer blend of the music that first started hitting the Paradise scene in the second half of the 80s – when folks weren't afraid to go back and borrow some of the best moments of the 70s, and work them into leaner grooves for the new generation. Vega was a key part of that generation – and there's a spirit here that's very much in keeping with his early Masters At Work material, especially when it got collaborative – as the record features work from guests, and a lot of classic tracks that are transformed in Vega's hands. Louie mixes lots of new music with his remixes – so the album is quite different than a remix record – and new guests include Josh Milan, The Martinez Brothers, Patrick Adams, Anane, Rochelle Fleming, Barbara Tucker, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Tony Touch – amidst older work by John Davis, Sylvester, Luther Vandross, Rhyze, Greg Henderson, and Klassique. 2LP vinyl part 2 features six tracks – "Love Paradox" by Louie Vega with The Martinez Brothers, "Get With The Funk" by Louie Vega with Josh Milan, "Dancing For Your Love" by Louie Vega with Cindy Mizelle & Sharon Bryant, "Love Fantasy" by Louie Vega with Cindy Mizelle, "Cosmic Disco" by Disco Dub Band, and "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" by Louie Vega with Anane & Tony Touch.

✨✧ VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs – Part 1 (5LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5LP ... $69.99 74.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 1 features five different records, all with lots of space for the tunes to stretch out – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, and "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney.

✨✧ Nana LoveDisco Documentary – Full Of Funk (with bonus CD) ... LP
Nestor/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 28.98
Rare funky soul from Ghanaian disco diva Nana Love – the rare, appropriately-titled Full Of Funk record from 1979 – with dynamite vocals by Nana and featuring Ghana legend Harry Mosco and other incredible players in the studio band! Nana's voice is uniquely amazing – with a sweet, girlish tone that builds to a lioness roar on occasion – which is incredibly compelling – and sung entirely in English. The band provides a wicked backdrop of funky dancefloor soul – propelled by fantastic guitarwork by Mosco, Paul Pryce and Les Forrest, killer basslines by Grek Haywood, sax and flute by Humphrey Okoh, percussion by Ayindi, drums by Tony Martin, synth and clavinet by Adrian Bennett and piano by Richard Reid. This great version from BBE includes 5 bonus tracks not on the original release – and the titles include "I'm in Love", "Whe Gonna Stay For The Party", "Talking About Music", "Disco Lover", "When The Heart Decides", "Reach Out My Hand", "Hang On Baby", "Loving Feeling (Dance Mix)" and "Loving Feeling (Instrumental)".

✨✧ VariousPrivate Wax – Super Rare Boogie & Disco ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 27.99
The title's no lie – as the set's filled with super rare boogie and disco – yet the music here isn't just obscure, it's also totally great – really wonderful sounds from the farther reaches of the American club underground! The grooves here are fantastic – and many numbers are more in an uptempo soul mode than just a standard disco style – served up with warm instrumentation, soulful vocals, and lots of inventive touches in the arrangements that really keep things interesting! The collection brings together rare 12" singles and unusual records from the US and overseas – and titles include "This Party's Just For You (12" version)" by Special Touch, "There's No End To Our Love" by Leprechaun, "Never Leave Me & I'll Never Leave You" by Philadelphia Brite, "What'Em Doing Is My Business" by Gregory Jolly, "Party Track (12" mix)" by Mr Fox, "Music Freak (12" mix)" by Contagious, "Dance" by Ashanti, "Sweet Maryline" by Christian Gaubert, "When I Come Knocking" by Poncho C Saint Fingers, "Doin It Cause It Feels Good" by Chuck Strong, "Disco Spells Love" by Pure Love, and "Freex (7" mix)" by Aura.

✨✧ VariousBest Of Disco Demands Vol 1 – A Special Collection Of Rare 1970s Dance Music ... LP
Million Dollar Disco/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 27.99
The dancefloor just got a whole lot funkier – thanks to an incredible selection of rare disco and club tracks from the best years of the genre! The set list here is really amazing – the kind of tunes that rarely turn up this easily, and never in such a cohesive package – and our hats are off to compiler Al Kent for putting together such a wonderfully tasty set! Most numbers here are from the mid to late 70s – and showcase a soulfully grooving approach to disco – one that's free from the cliches of the mainstream side of the genre, and which features plenty of real soul vocals alongside uptempo funky instrumentation that usually features a few odd twists and turns! Most numbers are edited by Al Kent, sometimes in very subtle ways, and include "cover ups" billed to other artists – and the package essentially brings together material from Kent's previous CD series of the same name – but with revised track order, wonderful packaging, and a bonus poster! Limited vinyl 1 features the tracks – "Love Is All Around" by Sizzle, "I've Been Searching" by Arts & Crafts, "Get Ready" by Allan Harris & Perpetual Motion, "Sweet Jazz Music" by Panache, "To Be With You" by Jimmy Sabater, "Funkathone" by The People's Workshop, "Just Friends" by Silver Platinum & Gold, and "Why In The World Do They Keep On" by Executive Suite.

✨✧ VariousReal Sound Of Chicago – Underground Disco From The Windy City ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99 27.99
The kind of record that makes us mighty proud to live in the Windy City – and a long-overdue look at the wealth of rare club, disco, and soul cuts bubbling in the Chicago underground at the end of the 70s! During the early part of the decade, the city was widely known for some super-huge soul acts – and in the 80s, house would raise Chicago to international fame – but in the space between, the city kept on putting out some really wonderful music – wicked little cuts issued on small indie labels, most of which never got any circulation outside the midwest! The Mr Peabody crate-digging team's collected together the best of the best from these overlooked years – and also threw in a few of their own edits too – furthering the dancefloor potential of some of the best rare nuggets. 2LP version features 8 cuts – including "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" by Carmen Amez – plus seven Mr Peabody edits – versions of "Too Far Gone" by LaJohn & Sheela, "The Challenge" by Billy Hinton, "The Composer" by Fantasie, "Running To A Disco" by Lonnie Givens, "Bass Come Back" by The Moore Brothers, "Disco Ball" by Brighter Side Of Darkness, and "Your Love Is In The Pocket" by Premonition.

BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $24.99 27.99
An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential! 3LP version includes 9 long tracks, with a couple versions extended and longer or otherwise alternate versions than the CD mixes, including the 17+ minute A-side opener "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Parts I & II" (JM extended 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (demo version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "Move To The Groove" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Margie Joseph, "You Got (That Something)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Logg and more.

BBE/Rapster (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A motherlode of rare disco tracks – brought together by two guys who know rare disco better than most of us – Dimitri From Paris and Joey Negro! Both Dimitri and Joey have been collecting for years – turning over crates worldwide in search of rare singles and recently burning up the stratosphere of ebay with their over-the-top bids on choice bits – all the while making great club records on their own! But for this set, Dimitri and Joey have decided to put aside their collector's mentality, and bring the rare grooves to the masses – instead of back home to their collections. The set's overflowing with really great bits we've never heard before – either obscure singles from the farther ends of disco, or rarer mixes pulled from 12" singles, then re-edited for the collection by either member of the pair! Volume 1 of the vinyl version features 8 tracks on 2LPs – titles that include "It Looks Like Love (Dim's compiled edit)" by Vince Montana with Goody Goody, "Baila Conmigo/He Will Dance With Me (Dim's DJ Friendly edit)" by Capuchino, "Nuclear Night (Dim's DJ Friendly edit)" by Crystal Disco Band, "Blak Skinned Blue Eyed Boys" by Derrick Harriott, "Skate Dancer" by Vinzerelli, "Chant No 1 (US rmx)" by Spandau Ballet, "Love Fantasy" by Mighty Fire, and "Just Like A Door Knob (Joey Negro edit)" by Touche.

BBE have done it again! They let Joey Negro go crazy, and put together a monster set of his favorite disco tracks of all time – so monster that they had to make the compilation bigger than usual (although they're still giving it to you at a nice nice price!) As you know, Joey's no sleeper – so the quality of this set's super high, and is the result of years of digging for rare disco singles all over the world. Titles include "Bourgie Bourgie" by John Davis Orchestra, "Come Back Lover" by Fresh Band, "I Don't Want You Back" by Ramona Brooks, "Let Me Down Easy" by Rare Pleasure, "In the Forest" by Baby O, "I'll Be Your Pleasure" by Esther Williams, and "Que Tal America" by Two Man Sound. The set also includes a few tracks that are also on other BBE comps – like ones by John Gibbs, Huson People, and Family of Eve – but given the extra big size of this one, we're assuming you won't mind the repeats, and they sound extra-nice next to the other high-quality cuts!

The group at this point features keyboardist Claudio Medeiros – who really adds a lot to their sound with his tight work on organ, clavinet, and electric piano! The tracks have a much more expansive sound than before – jazzily grooving in the Brazilian fusion mode of the 70s, touched with all the brightness of the west coast scene. Titles include "Circles", "A Briza", "Slick", "Madalena", "Salt Song", "Carinhoso", and "Ponteio/Asa Branca". LP, Vinyl record album

WEA (UK), Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare disco from Warner and Atlantic – a really great set of tunes that steps past the average disco compilation! Both Warner and Atlantic were some of the better labels on the disco scene in the 70s – as their years in soul music gave them an understanding for the stronger tunes for the dancefloor scene, and allowed them to cut tracks that still hold up extremely well today. A few of the acts on the set are more famous artists, represented by some of their lesser-remembered numbers – but the bulk of the compilation features obscure work that was only briefly pressed on 12" single, and which has only been the province of disco collectors over the years. Titles include "You + Me = Love" by Undisputed Truth, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Paradise" by Change, "Lipstick" by Michel Polnareff, "Tonight's The Night" by Kleer, "Smack Dab In The Middle (Larry Levan rmx)" by Janice McLain, "#1 Dee Jay" by Goody Goody, "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "When You Wake Up Tomorrow" by Candi Staton, "Wear It Out" by Stargard, and "I'll Tell You" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 88.

Tim MaiaDisco Club ... LP
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Not the throwaway disco you might expect – and instead, an excellent album in the 70s run of Brazilian soul giant Tim Maia – and one that provides a bit of a link to the legacy of his nephew Ed Motta in later years! The album's filled with uptempo tunes – as you'd expect from the title – Tim dropping his heavier funk style of his earliest records, to go for a spirited clubby groove – but one that really brings out some great moments in his vocals – really soaring with notes he never would have hit before! The feel of the record is really pretty darn great – as great as the best American club and disco work of the time – with the added bonus of Tim's great singing, and a few electric funky touches on the best numbers. Titles include "All I Want", "Sossego", "Acenda O Farol", "Jhony", "Murmurio", and "Pais E Filhos". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 31.99
A mighty tribute to the days before iPods and headphones – when the only option for portable music was the boombox – a sonic powerhouse that ruled the streets and the subways, and seemed to create an instant party whenever it arrived! The tracks here are underground gems from back in the day of the boombox – the kind of cuts that should never, ever be played on earbods – and instead need to be rocked out of speakers that are as big as you could hope to find – preferably with the bass turned up as high as it will go! Music is mostly old school hip hop, but also has that mix of rhymes and vocals that was coming into play as the parties moved from the streets and parks into the recording studio – all to create the kind of cuts that would always sound best on the boombox! Titles include "Another One Bites The Dust" by Sugar Daddy, "Thumpin" by Brothers Disco, "Class A" by Majestics, "On The Move" by Mifflin Ensemble, "Get Fly" by TJ Swann & Company, "Low Rider Rap" by Poor Boy Rappers, "Teen Machine Rap" by Teen Machine, "Ms DJ Rap It Up" by She, "Rhythm Rock (part 1)" by The Caution Crew, "Smooth Talk" by Mr Fox, "Gigolo Rapp" by Disco Daddy & Capt Rapp, "Wack Rap" by Solid C Bobby D & Kool Drop, and "Rhapazooty In Blue" by Sicle Cell & Rhapazooty.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 31.99
The Nigerian groove of the 70s – way past the familiar modes of Fela Kuti, and served up here in a range of artists who followed on a huge second wave of soul that soared from Lagos and beyond in the second half of the decade! The music here opens up in a sweet range of different styles – including bits of club and boogie that have come into the scene to open up Nigerian funk in more global modes for the dancefloor – blending African roots with American currents, in a sound that's completely unique – and which is way better than some of the Afro-disco modes that were coming from Europe a the time! As usual with the folks at Soul Jazz, the set's an ear-opening work of genius – from the superb track selection, to the very thorough notes and research – which really do a great job of presenting this side of Nigerian funk that's always been a bit eclipsed by some of the bigger names on the scene. Liner notes are by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster – and titles include "Do The Funkro" by Joni Haastrup, "You Can't Change A Man" by Christy Essien, "Afrikana Disco" by Akin Richards & The Executives, "Ocheche" by Don Bruce & The Anges, "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" by Tee Mac, "Get Up & Dance" by Benis Cletin, "Enoviyin" by Colomach, "Nwaeze" by Jimmy Sherry & The Musik Agents, "Wake Up Your Mind" by Joni Haastrup, "Disco Dancing" by Angela Starr, "Mr Been To" by Arakatula, "Living Every Day" by Tee Mac with Marjorie Barnes, "Wake Up Africa" by Arakatula, and "Soul Fever" by Benis Cletin.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 31.99
Great cuts from the old school – pulled together from the earliest days of hip hop – at a time when the boundary lines in the music weren't so fully formed! These days, the difference between hip hop and club cuts is huge – but back in the South Bronx scene at the start, there was a lot more interplay between styles – as 70s funk served as the blueprint, disco singles expanded the format, soul vocals gave some structure, and live rhymes and DJ work provided all of the spontaneous elements that made the music so unique – coming together with amazing energy that really reflected the street-level sounds of the New York scene! This ultra-hip collection brings together all those amazing strands from the early years – in a set that's one of the best historically important Soul Jazz titles we've seen in years – from the excellent track selection right down to the very detailed notes. There's plenty of rare cuts here you're not likely to have in your collection – and titles include "Body Rock" by Neil B, "Positive Life" by Love Bug Starski & The Harlem World Crew, "At The Place To Be" by Mr Sweety G, "New Rap Language" by Spoonie G & The Treacherous Three, "We Are People Too" by Master Jay, "Equidity Funk" by Mistafide, "And You Know That" by TJ Swan, "Searching Rap" by Bon Rock & The Rhythm Rebellion, "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood & The Willie Wood Crew, "Rhythm Rap Rock" by Count Coolout, "On The Go" by Black Bird & Kevski, "Philosophy Rappin Spree" by Super 3, "Move Your Body" by Bramsam, and "One More Time" by Sugar Daddy.

An amazing array of Afro Funk from the legendary Tony Allen – 4 of his greatest albums ever, packaged together in a single set! The work here was all recorded hot on the heels of Tony's key years with Fela Kuti – and shares a very similar approach to the groove – long, stretched out passages that are heavy on bottom rhythms and percussion, augmented by jazzy solos on saxes, trumpet, and keyboards – snaking out beautifully on top of the grooves! The work here easily ranks with some of Fela's best, and the package is essential for any collection of global grooves. Titles include "Hustler", "Jealousy", "No Accommodation For Lagos", "African Message", "Road Safety", "Ariya", "Love Is A Natural Thing", "Afro Disco Beat", "Progress", and "No Discrimination".

The dancefloor just got a whole lot funkier – thanks to an incredible selection of rare disco and club tracks from the best years of the genre! The set list here is really amazing – the kind of tunes that rarely turn up this easily, and never in such a cohesive package – and our hats are off to compiler Al Kent for putting together such a wonderfully tasty set! Most numbers here are from the mid to late 70s – and showcase a soulfully grooving approach to disco – one that's free from the cliches of the mainstream side of the genre, and which features plenty of real soul vocals alongside uptempo funky instrumentation that usually features a few odd twists and turns! Most numbers are edited by Al Kent, sometimes in very subtle ways, and include "cover ups" billed to other artists – and the package essentially brings together material from Kent's previous CD series of the same name – but with revised track order, wonderful packaging, and a bonus poster! Limited vinyl 2 features the tracks "Dancing Free" by Hot Ice, "Doing Our Own Thang" by Al Tanner, "Fear" by Arthur King, "Party Together" by Superbs, "How Can I Tell Her" by Curtis, "Giving It All To You" by Cheryl Berdell, "We've Got It" by Sylvano Santorio, and "Sound Of Disco Rock" by Stringfield Family.

Way more than just another disco compilation – a wealth of funky club tunes, filled with obscure numbers you've probably not heard in years! The set's the third entry in BBE's stellar Disco Spectrum compilation – and it may well be the best so far, as it offers up a jam-packed selection of 15 tracks on 3LPs, unmixed, complete with great notes on all of the grooves. The sound is extremely soulful – strings soaring and keyboards grooving, while the rhythms step proud – moving past any disco cliches you might be afraid of, and hitting a sound that's instantly fresh and equally timeless! Titles include "Somewhere Beyond" by Hi Voltage, "Can't Shake Your Love" by Syreeta, "Isabelle & The Rain" by Jo Boyer, "Hot Disco Night" by Sweet Potato, "Does It Feel Good" by BT Express, "Under The Skin" by The Brothers, "Heartache No 9" by Delegation, "Solar Flight" by Mandre, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "Can You Get Down" by Universe City, "Nightlife" by Blair, and "Groove On Down" by Dunn Pearson Jr. LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic funky club from the late 70s underground – a set of tracks that are as groovy as they are rare – all hand-picked by Faze Action! The set's one of the best in this excellent series – as Faze Action goes for a slightly different vibe, one that's got a sharper crackle around the edges – almost a precursor to elements that would be more familiar in contemporary underground work, but still often served up with all the warmth of the disco and boogie generation! A few cuts feature special Faze Action edits for the set, and all titles are ones that you probably don't have in your collection already – a lineup that includes "We All Need One Another" by Stylus, "Body Movements" by Oscar Perry, "Hot Summer Madness" by Spats, "I'm In Love With You" by Carol Dionne, "Mixed Up (Faze Action edit)" by Space, "Let Love Begin" by Galaxy, "Africa Africa (Faze Action edit)" by Songhoi Band, "Set It Out (Faze Action edit)" by Midway, "In The Bush" by Michele Claire, "All Nite Tonight (mix)" by Leston Paul, and "Dance Lover (Faze Action edit)" by Mikki featuring Starz.

Ace/BGP (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 32.99
Disco grooves from a source you might not expect – the Japanese scene of the 70s, which was home to a surprisingly strong array of records that were perfect for the clubs! In retrospect, maybe the music's not such a surprise – given that 70s Japan was also a hotbed of electric fusion, and the kind of sharp instrumentation that provides the core to most of these tunes – wicked basslines, sweet keyboards, and funky drums that propel these tracks along in a wonderful way – even if you can't understand some of the Japanese lyrics over the top! In fact, many of these numbers are even more in the fusion or funk-inspired side of disco – less the crossover cuts with strings and big production, and more like the kind of American club tracks you might hear from Kudu Records or some of the other fusion labels. The package is proof that great sounds can be truly universal – and comes with detailed notes on the artists and scene at the time. Titles include "By By Session Band" by Lily, "Summer Champion" by Yuko Asano, "Dancin" by Junko Ohashi, "Rainbow Parade" by Masayoshi Takanaka, "Uragiri" by Mari Natuski, "Maboroshi No Hito" by Miyako Chaki, "Banana" by Kay Ishiguro, "Yashow Macashow" by Ebonee Webb, "Lovin Mighty Fire" by Nayoya Matsuko & Minako Yoshida, "Sentimental Hotel" by Rie Nkahara, and "Barato Yajuu" by Haruomi Hosono.

The lineup here includes reed heavyweight Basil Coetzee on both flute and tenor sax – working in a quartet with some sublime organ lines from Pops Mohamed – who plays in this snakey sort of way that's a bit like South African jazz piano, but maybe even more flowing and moody. The grooves are sometimes funky, sometimes more modal – but always forward moving in a really great way, but again with a very fresh approach to rhythm!

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Disco Spectrum series of compilations – a run of records that first burst forth at the end of the 90s, and showed the world that there was a huge amount of underground music to discover from the mainstream disco years! Disco Spectrum cuts aren't the ones you'll know from Saturday Night Fever – or from K-Tel compilations of the time – and instead, they represent the much deeper current of groove that was still burning bright away from the limelight, even while the more commercial disco crumbled into dust – music that was sometimes cut by artists who disappeared quickly, sometimes by older masters, and sometimes by talents who never fully got the respect they deserved. Both Joey Negro and Sean P have given us some great sets before, but this one is right at the top of their talents – filled with gems that include "Let Me Down Easy" by Rare Pleasure, "Spread Love" by Al Hudson & The Soul Partners, "Can't Shake Your Love (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Syreeta, "Trinidad (special disco mix)" by John Gibbs & US Steel Orchestra, "Isabelle & The Rain" by Jo Boyer, "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By (club 12" mix)" by Cloud One with Margo Williams, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "I Don't Want You Back" by Ramona Brooks, "Hot To Trot" by Alfredo De La Fe, "Out Of My Hands" by Omni, "Under The Skin" by The Brothers, "Let Me Love You" by Bunny Mack, "Can You Get Down" by Universe City, and "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke with Lynn Davis.

Forget the "disco" in the title, because the album's not really disco – or at least not in a way that any disco fan would agree to – just more of a dancefloor-oriented approach to the heavy funk that James had always been cutting in the 70s! Tracks are longer and more uptempo than on earlier albums – with stronger basslines, and a punchier overall sound that goes for catchy hooks and the kind of shouted, striking lyrics that made James stand out from the pack. Production and arrangements are by Brad Shapiro, of southern soul fame – and that fact gives the album a deeper feel than you'd expect from a disco cash-in set. Titles include "It's Too Funky In Here", "Star Generation", "Still", "The Original Disco Man", "Let The Boogie Do The Rest", and "Women Are Something Else". LP, Vinyl record album

The ensemble is a crowning achievement for the Far Out label – a summation of all the great work they've done from the London scene, including their reintroduction of key Brazilian musicians of the 70s – all soaring to the skies here, with a richly collaborative energy! The group features lots of keyboards from Jose Roberto Bertrami, guitars from Alex Malheiros, and keyboards and rhythms from Daniel Maunick – plus great contributions from many others, including some help from the legendary Arthur Verocai. Most tunes groove in a mighty nice way – not vintage disco, but a soaring, righteous 21st Century version of club – on tunes that include "Step Into My Life", "Flying High", "Black Sun", "The Two Of Us", "Walking Bass", "Give It To Me", and "Where Do We Go From Here".

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene! Keep in mind that lots of American disco came from musicians who'd moved up north from the Caribbean – bringing a sunny spirit and driving rhythms in the process, as well as a post-colonial, diaspora approach to the music – which was then fused with American soul and funk for the clubs! This set has a very similar vibe, but just reverses the process – with grooves that borrow plenty from the hipper club styles of the late 70s and early 80s, and come across with a freshly non-commercial vibe, given their Caribbean roots. We'd never heard most tracks here before – hats off to Waxist for compiling the collection – and titles include "Cosmopolitan London" by Ray Williams, "Praise Jah" by Oluko Imo, "My African Religion" by Paul Hurlock, "Going To The Party" by Barry Bryson, "Let Me Love You" by Teddy Davis, and "Macho Man" by Eddie & The Movement.

The track "Disco 3000" is an incredible workout on synthesizer, with a tiny bit of drum machine, a little "Space Is The Place" breakdown, and all of the wild sound you'd expect from a Sun Ra album. The cut goes on for quite some time, and is really fantastic. Side two of the record features two more long tracks – the sweetly soulful "Friendly Galaxy", a great soul jazz number, and "Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens", which has spooky organ, frenetic bass, and somber percussion!

ABC, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hardly the disco set you might guess from the title – and instead, a surprisingly soulful gem from the post-Stax years of Isaac Hayes! There's certainly a bit of uptempo grooving in the mix – but, as on Ike's Polydor years, the approach is still handled with the deeper sounds that Hayes first forged over at Stax – a way of putting together the groove that's almost like a mini-symphony in soul – still quite complex, even when aimed at the dancefloor! But not all cuts are groovers, too – as there's some key mellow moments on the record that really help balance things out, and which we really like a lot – those slow-stepping, mature masculine numbers that always marked Hayes as one of the hippest talents of his generation. There's some key Memphis help on the record from The Movement – who handle rhythm and horns – and titles include "Let's Don't Ever Blow Our Thing", "Lady of The Night", "The Storm Is Over", "Juicy Fruit", "Thank You Love", and "Music To Make Love By".

As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

Obscure grooves from the Finnish scene of the 80s – tracks that do a nice job of bridging the space between earlier Euro disco modes, particularly the work of the Munich scene – and the huge wave of electro pop that was coming out of the UK at the time! In fact, much of the material here really feels like the latter – save for the fact that the language is often different – and the groups do a good job of echoing the sweet electronic modes of groups like Human League, Ultravox, and Heaven 17 – working with plenty of beats and keyboards, but usually in a way that's warm and catchy, and not like some of the colder electro work of the period. And even if you can't understand the language, lots of these tunes are pretty darn catchy – and the vocals maybe come across just like one more instrumental element – adding an extra flavor to the sweet electric modes. Titles include "San Salvador" by Argon, "Satan In Love" by Emilia, "Cairo C" by Digital Dance, "Tatsia" by Stress, "Nyt Tanssitaan" by Jerry, "Help Me" by Syntax, "Kuolleet Pelit" by Belaboris, "Harhaa" by Raya, "Vanha Suola Janottaa" by Tapa Paha Tapa, "Fashion Maailma" by Press, "17 Up" by Mick Hanian, and "Computer Talk" by BB.

A decade's worth of slinky sounds from the French scene – a good number of which were recorded after the big disco boom years in the US – at a time when the European clubs kept things going with some fresh flavors of their own! The style here isn't as overtly disco as you might think – as the grooves are nice and open – often a bit more midtempo than upbeat, with currents from modern soul and some of the global cultures that intersected through the wide musical world of Paris! In fact, the whole thing's more of a discovery of new grooves than a French take on familiar styles – as you'll discover amidst tracks that include "Lait De Coco (dub)" by Maya, "Segregation" by Nst Cophies, "Funky & Fire" by Janet N'Diaye Lokamba, "Money" by Kke, "Flash" by Zorgus, "Give Me Back My Song" by Wally & Shane, "Looking For You" by JEKYS, "Qu'Est-Ce Que Tu Fais Par Amour" by Joel Dayde, "Listen To The Music (12" mix)" by Judy Carter, "Un Peu D'Amour" by Silence, and "Funky Baby Love" by Paul Fathy.

The work here is quite different than some of the cheesier, clunkier Euro disco hits of the time – and instead, there's a lot of care and craft brought to the rhythms and lyrics – often a lot more soul elements than you might expect, and with occasional global currents that reflect the unique sound of Paris in the postcolonial years. There's almost an AOR catchiness to some of the tunes, but the presentation is more strongly soulful overall – on titles that include "Bye Cocotiers" by Marc Ashy, "Keep Cool" by Messan, "Sunshine" by Greg Smaha, "Sheriff's Horse" by Roots, "Funky Biguine" by Crystal, "Havana" by Nielo Feel, "Funk Force Leader" by Ideku Dynasty, "Talk Me Mam's" by Black Bells Group, "Le Sherif Qui Danse" by Claude Morgan, and "Givin It Up" by Charms.

The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package a really great discovery in sound! The music is surprisingly fresh, and often quite funky too – and done in modes that are arguably warmer and more soulful than most other European disco – and often a lot like the best American underground club of the period. Some tracks have breathy female vocals, while others have bolder lyrics that almost echo some of the global musical crossovers happing in 70s Paris and a few of the later tracks bring in electro elements, but in a subtle way we totally love. The collection's a follow-up to the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation – and like that one, it's really a cut above the usual! Titles include "Super Star" by Contessa, "Lady Jones" by Over Drive, "Music Madness (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Beckie Bell, "Y'A Du Blues" by Marche Noire, "Un Fait Divers & Rien De Plus (re-remix)" by Le Club, "Pour Moi Ca Va (Charles Maurice version)" by France Lise, "Polar (Charles Maurice version)" by Bernard Guyvan, and "Minuit L'Heure Du Swing" by Didier Makaga.

✨✧ VariousHong Kong Disco ... LP
Wan Chai (Hong Kong), Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mighty sweet little set – not just Hong Kong disco, but also a fair bit of soul and AOR tracks too – all of which we've never heard before! Much of the music here shows a strong American influence – right down to the English language lyrics that top almost all the tracks – and the instrumentation is often tight and funky, and put forward without the slicker production you'd find on US work of the time! In fact, a number of these groups were working big in HK clubs during the time – which was still a relatively small world – which almost makes some of the music feel like indie disco from the American underground, the kind of small label cuts that have been favorites for modern soul collectors over the years. You might want to consider this package to be an addition to that world, rather than a set of truly Chinese material from the 70s – and if you dig funky 70s soul as much as we do, you should find plenty here to love! Titles include "Hurt So Bad" by Tracy, "Take It To The Bossman" by The Reflection, "Swearin To God" by Charing Carpo, "This Is No Horse" by AJL Band, "Day Dreamin" by Julie Sue, "You're The Love" by Louie Castro, "Gotta Be The One" by The New Topnotes, "Lovin You" by Rita Kwong, and "Make Me Believe In You" by Oscar & His Orchestra.

✨✧ VariousBoogie Breakdown – South African Synth Disco 1980 to 1984 ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
There's no breakdown to the boogie here – as the album's overflowing with stunning sounds that are right up there with better-known club music from the early 80s – every bit as full of basslines, beats, and keyboards as the best tracks from the American scene of the period, but maybe even more stripped-down and biting overall! As the title announces, the music here is all from South Africa of the late Apartheid years – a time that's usually summed up by music of protest, but which also required some moments of letting off steam – the kind of grooves that are featured in this set! The sound is warmer than you'd expect from the "synth" in the title, too – more like electro funk overall, with a great sense of sharp rhythms and nicely focused vocals – some of which echo older South African modes, but which still often nod more strongly to US dancefloor soul. Titles include "Party" and "Good Vies" by Harari, "Hey Tonight" and "We Keep On Keeping On" by Cannibals, "I Wanna Be Myself" and "Let's Groove Tonight" by Don Laka, "Perfect Love" and "Breakdown" by Neville Nash, "Flash A Flashlight" and "I Just Keep Dancing" by Benjamin Ball, and "You've Got Love" and "Hold Onto Love" by Al Etto.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 34.98
A fantastic collection that looks at the relationship between American soul and reggae in a very unique way – not the early crossovers of soul and rocksteady in the 60s, but a big wave of disco-inspired sounds in the 70s! The set brings together some great Jamaican and British versions of American club tracks from the late 70s and early 80s, plus some soul cuts from earlier years – often done with rhythms that are slower and more bad-stepping, in a true reggae mode – but with songs and lyrics that are lifted right from bit hits by artists like Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and others! The mix of modes is wonderful – and maybe comes across even better than on some of the Afro disco records of the period – thanks to a great track selection, in the usual Soul Jazz standard. Titles include "I'm Every Woman" by Latisha, "In The Rain" by rRnest Ranglin, "Reggae Beat Goes On" by Family Choice, "Ring My Bell" by Blood Sisters, "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" by Derrick Laro & Trinity, "Do It Nice & Easy" by Chariot Riders, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Black Harmony, "Upside Down" by Carol Cool, "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Sharon Forrester, "Rappers Delight" by Xanadu & Sweet Lady, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by Risco Connection, "Am I The Same Girl" by Charmaine Burnette, and "Be Thankful For What You Got" by One Blood.

Soundway (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Some of the funkiest, clubbiest work we've ever heard from the African scene of the 70s – great grooves that would be right at home on the New York dancefloors of the time! The style here is definitely drawn from disco, yet is a lot more funk-based too – more in the farther reaches of the disco underground of the late 70s – with some of the offbeat touches you might hear from some of the P&P family of labels. Basslines are often stronger than the beats – and although strings and other elements are sometimes used to sweeten the grooves – the approach is never too commercial, and never softens up the funky rhythms at the bottom. Kiki plays keyboards, sings a bit, and does a great job on production – working under his own name, and with some other key projects as well. Titles include "Disco Dancer", "24 Hours In A Disco", "Sexy Dancer", and "Keep On Dancing" by Kiki Gyan – plus "Loving You" and "Disco Train" by KG Band, and "Pretty Pretty Girls" by The Twins.

Now Again/Soul Cal, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP & Book ... Out Of Stock
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.

There's some really nice percussion and guitars on the set, and a few bits have these nice dark keyboard parts that sit somewhere between Kraftwerk and electro – but the whole thing's also warmed up a bit – in a way that goes along with the cover image of a nude woman coming out of a tube of toothpaste! Includes the extended hit "San Salvador", the moody "Exalt Exalt", and the tracks "Fire Fly", "Soft Emotion", and "Anytime Or Place". LP, Vinyl record album

Wild grooves from two different Mid-East scenes – both of which seemed very open too mixing cool electronics with dancefloor rhythms! The music here has some of the electro vibe of Turkish pop from the same time, but there's also some weirder, more cosmic elements at times – which makes the whole compilation feel more like some of the Finders Keepers selections, although maybe without as much sense of history in the overall presentation! Tunes mix the exotic and the funky, the spacey electric and acoustic – and titles include "A Night At The Station" by Ishan Al Munzer, "Funk Excerpt" by Ammar El Shariey, "Doroup El Hawa" by Mohammed Jamal, "Mahsobko Endas" by Iman El Bahar Darwish, "Rasputin" by Joseph Nemnom, "Jamileh" by Ihsan Al Munzer, "Souk Al Abeed" by Ammar El Shariey, and "Cairo" by Farid Atrache.

Funky disco music, and a lot more too – all served up in this rare 70s set by Eko Roosevelt from Cameroon! The leadoff track is a long groover that runs for more than 10 minutes in length – and has that mix of modes that you'd often find in some of the Parisian Afro tracks recorded in the late 70s – but that number's then followed by a number of other tunes that change things up nicely – with some currents of other West African rhythms and instrumentation, all bubbling together in a lively way next to Eko's vocals. One track seems to be trying a bit for a crossover vibe, but the rest are all nice and groovy – and titles include "Funky Disco Music", "Doi Da Manga", "Me To A De Try My Own", "Emen Ango", "Bowaa Mba Ngebe", and "Esele Mba Musango Na Ndol'Am".

Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – a surprisingly strong source of well-crafted, warmly-produced grooves – all with a special sort of sparkle that reminds us a lot of the best Bay Area or LA sounds of the time! There's a sunny vibe to the music that really belies its roots – a blend of jazz, soul, funk, and more – all handled with production that's few notches down from the slicker AOR material of the period, which still lets all the more soulful currents shine through nicely – and which keeps all this stuff from ever sounding too commercial. Given the cultural cross-currents taking place on the islands at the time, there's a surprising mix of backgrounds to some of these groups – which results in a unique sound that's nicely colorblind, and which stands as a bit of a contrast to some of the more defined scenes on the mainland. As always with Strut Records, the track selection and presentation is wonderful – with plenty of notes that illuminate the music – and titles include "Sparkle" by Greenwood, "Get That Happy Feeling" by Lemuria, "Countryside Beauty" by Tender Leaf, "Yesterday's Love" by Aura, "Kawaihae" by Brother Noland, "Feel Like Getting Down" by Nova, "Love One Another" by Mike Lundy, "Coast To Coast" by Rockwell Fukino, and "Call Me" by Hal Bradbury.

Svart (Finland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... About June 1, 2018 (delayed)
A cool collection of clubby cuts from the Finnish scene – maybe not the biggest hotbed of disco sounds at the end of the 70s, but a nation that's certainly given us some great funk in recent years! Turns out, the funky Finnish legacy goes way back to the 70s – where some of the groups on this collection were tuning out well-crafted cuts that are often arguably a lot warmer than most Euro disco – maybe inspired in part by the strong Finnish fusion scene of a few years before, and turned out here with lots of jazzy elements next to the vocals and familiar grooves. If you dig underground club and rare disco, you'll find plenty to love here – even if some of the cuts are a bit offbeat – and titles include "Discofiilis" by Ernos, "Flying High" by Dance, "Ota" by Pirtta, "Raju Yo Stomp" by Karma, "Queen Of The Night" by Nisa Soraya, "Dancing In The Night" by Caron, "Dance For Your Life" by Bjorninen Band, and "Walking Under Moonlight" by Solar.

The groove here mixes together 70s roots in disco and reggae – and comes up with a cool contemporary blend that's mighty nice – held together through top-shelf production from key French talents who include Mato and Patchworks – in a groove that's nicely unified throughout! Many tunes are covers and remakes – the set includes great versions of songs by Herbie Hancock, Rolling Stones, Donna Summer, and others – but all done in these very fresh new ways that are completely unique. Titles include "Feel Like Makin Love" by The Dynamics, "Disco Illusion" by Taggy Matcher, "Melt The Night (Mato reggae rmx)" by Lucas Arruda, "Miss You (ext disco version)" by The Dynamics, "Shake It Dub (ext 12" version)" by 7 Samurai, "Cantaloupe Island" by Taggy Matcher, "Movin In The Right Direction" by Mato, and "Loev To Love You Baby" by Rosemary Martins.

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
Funky disco from 70s Spain – a wonderful collection of upbeat, hard-grooving titles that owe plenty to the sound of New York and Philly – but which also have their own sort of groove too! There's elements here that take off from the early 70s Spanish rumba mode of blending flamenco roots with more soulful elements – as many of these tunes have strong guitar flourishes, and these soaring vocals that are certainly inspired by the older modes – but also set to the kinds of rhythms, basslines, and strings that you'd hear from the American disco indies at the time – which makes for a fantastic blend of sounds that's completely unique! The only thing that might come close is Charo's record for Salsoul, but all this work is way better than that album – and titles include "Ahora Que" and "Ya Estoy Parao" by Rumba Tres, "Yo Me Siento Muy Feliz" and "Esta Noche Te Perdi" by Sangre Gitana, "Estrella" by Los Gachos, "Oye Chiquilla" by Tobago, "Puedes Buscarte Un Nuevo Amor" by Barracuda, and "Mala" by La Marelu.

Not disco hits or the overplayed classics you may know from too many weddings – but a wonderfully deep selection of underground cuts that shows that there's still plenty of rare gems to discover from the 70s club scene! The set's put together by the man who wrote the book on rare disco mixes (literally!) – and he's got a great ear for the kinds of cuts that still sound incredibly fresh all these many years later – work that may well have been so ahead of its time, it's taken the passage of decades to finally give it its due! Most of these tracks strip down to the best elements of underground disco – the kinds of basslines, rhythm parts, and funky instrumentation that still leaves us breathless over the years – and as usual, Soul Jazz have done a bang-up job with the whole package too. Titles on this part 1 of the vinyl version include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Groove On Down" by Dunn Pearson Jr, "Micro Wave Boogie" by Skip Jackson & The Natural Experience, "Come Inside" by Shades Of Love, "Rock A Freak" by Needa, "Disco Strut" by Creme De Coco", and "What Can I Do To Make You Dance" by Anita Maldondo.

Pressure Sounds (UK), New Copy ... About June 1, 2018 (delayed)
A wonderful album from saxophonist Tommy McCook – an artist you'll know from important Jamaican recordings from the late 60s onward – but who's really hitting some headier territory here! The tunes are all instrumental, and have very dubby rhythms at the core – yet while the other instrumentation is often mixed up in studio effects, Tommy's lead solos are mostly nice and clear – blown with a much sharper edge than in earlier years, and often given these exotic tones too – a very cool style that really makes the album stand out from other dub instrumental albums of the time! There's some great currents of soul that almost make McCook work here as the Jamaican equivalent of Stanley Turrentine or Hank Crawford on their mid 70s recordings – and titles include "Herb & Honey", "Macka Dub Rock", "Tommy's Rocking Vibration", "The Night Rose Of Sherron", "African Jumpers", "The Bionic Horn", and "Roots Of Africa".

Well, they've definitely got the "disco" in the title right – but there's a lot more going on here too – including some nice post-punk touches that are augmented by guest work from Mark Stewart and Liquid Liquid! The album's tuneful, catchy, and nicely distilled – heavy on the keyboard and rhythm tip, but not in the smoother style of some of the retro 80s acts on the market – instead with a vibe that hearkens back more towards the DIY vibe of the wave of indie labels that sprung up in the years after punk – particularly some of the hipper British or Benelux imprints! These guys almost feel like that moment when Factory records started to go from darkness to warmth, but also have a special spirit that's all their own – as you'll quickly learn to love on tracks that include "Cause For Concern", "Smarter Harder Darker", "These Are Some Of The Things That I Think About", "875 Dollars", "Stratosphere Girl", and "Music Snob".

Spanish guitar did something really amazing in the 70s – it moved from the spareness of traditional flamenco modes, into the world of funk and soul – mixing the complexity of the guitar lines with lots of bass, drums, keyboards, and strings! The result is a completely unique style – one called rumba by some, and which is this beautiful fusion of deep Spanish roots and contemporary dancefloor styles – all at a level that's even better on record than it sounds on paper! Lyrics are often full of the sort of drama you'd hear from a flamenco singer, but focused on the groove a bit more – with soulful results that really transcend the boundaries of language, time and place – as you'll hear on the great cuts included in this set. The package features full notes on all these rare titles – and tunes include "Buscaremos Un Rincon" by Rumba Tres, "Toquiliquiton" by Tobago, "Volao" by Chipen, "Vente Conmigo" by Trigal, "Zorongo" by Las Deblas, "Tomame Que Tomame" by Marian Conde, "Naino Naino" by Juan Bautista, "Ven Ven Vente" by Los Maravilla, "Dimelo" by Paga Y Manuela, and "Como Me Las Maravillaria Yo" by Lola Flores.

The real sound of the old school, and the best beats from the streets – the kind of early underground hip hop tracks that still sound wonderful after all these years! These are tracks from the earliest years of the style – when funk was as much a part of the music as lyrics – and tracks were often surprisingly long, and spun out in the best sort of party mode – with an excellent focus on funky drum breaks and basslines, matched by lyrics from youthful crews and MCs that set the standard for countless artists to come! As with the first volume, the track selection here is wonderful – a mix of key classics from the Harlem and South Bronx scenes, plus some overlooked gems that are well-worth discovering – all wrapped up with the usual top-shelf attention to detail we've come to expect from Soul Jazz Records! The package features loads of great notes and photos – and titles include "Maximus Party" by TJ Swann & Pee Wee Mel, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Lookin Good" by Eddie Cheba, "One Time Two Time Blow Your Mind" by MC Rock Lovely, "Let's Rock" by Harlem World Crew, "School Days" by Busy Bee, "Ah That's The Joint" by Kool DJ AJ, "Dancin Party People" by Little Skarsky, "Young Ladies" by Lonnie Love, "Rappin Partee Groove" by Rappers Rapp Group, "The People's Message Take Two" by Terry Lewis & Wild Flower, "Shake Your Body" by Manujothi, "Dr Ice Rap" by Zoot II, and "Rock The Message Rap" by Grand Master Chilly T & Stevie G.

An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian.

Andy Smith has given us many amazing compilations over the years – sets that have a special mix magic, made up of rocksteady, reggae, vintage funk, and even some rockabilly too! Yet as Andy says here in the notes, he first got hooked on music in the disco generation – and has always had a life-long love of unusual and underground grooves – which he definitely demonstrates here, in a stunning selection of cuts that focus on the funkier side of the disco generation – with a good number of tracks that have turned out to be sample cuts over the years. Titles include "For The Love Of Money" by Disco Dub Band, "Patty Duke" by Cloud One, "Times Are Tight" by Jimmy Young, "Share The Night" by World Premiere, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Let It Flow" by Tamiko Jones, "Main Thing" by Shot with Kim Marsh, "Give It Up" by Neddy Smith, "Groove To Get Down" by T-Connection, "Holding You Tight (ext DJ mix)" by Sure Thing, "First True Love Affair (Andy Smith & Nick Halke reach up edit)" by Jimmy Ross, "Got To Have You (Whiskey Barons re-edit)" by Joanne Wilson, "I Wanna Be Myself" by Don Laka, "Get Up & Boogie" by Freedom, and "Take Me To The Top" by Advance.

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the straight disco you might expect from the title – and instead a whole host of weird and wonderful grooves from the later years of the Lollywood film scene! These Pakistani tracks follow a bit of the style of Bollywood work of the time, but often have a tighter, more compressed approach – sharper electric instrumentation, especially keyboards, mixing with bold acoustic lines on horns and plenty of percussion – all in support of singers who soar out over the top with this really other-worldly style! Overall, there's a bit less of the sentiment you'd find in Indian film music, and instead this oddly angular, offbeat approach that really keeps things interesting – and more than trippy enough to match the slight psychedelic currents in the production. Titles include "Tere Saath Mulaqaat Ek Raat Ki" by Tafo Brothers & Nahid Akhtar, "Tere Mere Larr Gaye" by Kamal Ahmed & Mehnaz, "Oh My Darling" by Nisar Bazmi & Runa Laila, "Badal Aur Bijli" by Sohail Rana, "Happy New Year" by Tafo Brothers & Noor Jehan, and "Disco Dildaar Mera" by M Ashraf & Noor Jehan.

The work is great – usually no-nonsense and stripped-down, without any of the too-commercial modes that eventually sank the disco scene at the end of the 70s – but the overall sound is warmer and more sensual than house or other contemporary club styles too – even though a number of these cuts focus more on instrumental passages than vintage disco from back in the day! There's definitely a bit of a French club twist here – that sound from the scene where disco never really died – and titles include "La Lune" by L'Imperatrice, "Shenzhen V" by Bon Voyage Organization, "Makin Love" by Marvin & Guy, "Acid Disco" by Leonxleon, "Running (The Chase)" by Bufiman, "Theuz Hamtaak" by S3A, "Nothing Gold (Tood Terje rmx)" by Jakim, and one classic cut – "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman (inst)" by Sounds Of Inner City.

They definitely got the title right on this one – as the set's overflowing with the kind of classic club tracks that not only broke big in the disco generation of the 70s, but which have also gone on to become the sorts of songs that were real touchstones for the period! Some of these tracks were chart hits, but others were more underground – and together, they represent the cream of the crop of the disco years – tracks that found a way to create non-stop grooves, which are often extended here on special versions taken from 12" singles! Titles include "Shake Your Body (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by the Jacksons, "Boogie Wonderland (12" mix)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Boogie Nights (12" version)" by Heatwave, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" mix)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Native New Yorker (12" disco mix)" by Odyssey, "Keep On Dancing (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "I Love America (12" mix)" by Patrick Juvet, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Souvenirs (12" version)" by Voyage, "Givin Up Givin In (long version)" by Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Turn The Beat Around (12" version)" by Vickie Sue Anderson, "Supernature (12" mix)" by Cerrone, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "Can't Stop The Music (extended)" by Village People, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, and "I Can't Stand The Rain (12" version)" by Eruption.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Rare club cuts from a few different generations – all brought together here in a really wonderful collection! The set's supposed to tip us off to the influences on the music of DJ Marky – but even if you don't care about him at all, you'll find plenty here to love – as the package shows the way that great funky tracks can span the globe and space of decades – yet still manage to come together with a really unified feel! Tracks start in the club underground of the late 70s, then move through points overseas to incorporate some great modes that work together wonderfully – in a set of rare grooves that includes "Got To Get Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Futebol De Bar" by Manuel Azevedo Quartet, "Jungle Kitten" by Manfredo Fest, "Cosa Nostra" by Pasito All Stars, "Meant Love" by Influx Datum, "Dream Come True (Joey Negro reality mix)" by Brand New Heavies, "This Is Acid (K&T dance mix)" by Maurice, "Last Night Changed It All" by Esther Williams, and "Truly One (rmx part 1)" by Origin Unknown.

Warner, 1980. Sealed ... $2.99
Near-perfect work from Ashford & Simpson – really grooving in full powerhouse mode here, and never missing a beat! By all rights, the team should have run out of steam by this point, but the album's another winner from their sublime Warner years – caught in a unique space between chart soul, ensemble funk, and disco – taking all the best elements of each, and really sending the whole thing home with some incredible vocals and impeccable production and arrangements! Titles include "Rushing To", "Love Don't Make It Right", "We'll Meet Again", "Get Out Your Handkerchief", and "I Ain't Asking For Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1977. Sealed ... $4.99
Excellent work from Ashford & Simpson – with some modern soul groovers that are among the best they ever did! The album includes their original reading of "Top Of The Stairs", a great sexy soul duet that was later done by Collins & Collins – and it's also got a fantastic instrumental reading of "Bourgie Bourgie", a track that you may know from a more famous John Davis disco version. Other tracks include "By Way Of Love's Express", "Let Love Use Me", "Send It", and "Waited Too Long". More proof that leaving Motown was a great move for them! LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1980. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A classic bit of club from Lipps Inc – an album that's got the group nicely stretched-out and extended – taking them way past the simpler sounds you might know from their hit single work! Tracks here are all quite long, and feature lots of instrumental workouts over very tight rhythms – almost a mix of Casablanca disco with some of the freer modes you'd get from labels like Prelude or Salsoul – served up with lots of guitar and heavy basslines from group leader Steven Greenberg! Vocals are by Cynthia Johnson – who helped Lipps Inc become one of the first standout soul acts from the Twin Cities – and in addition to a great extended take of "Funkytown", titles include "All Night Dancin", "Power", and "Rock It".

Roadshow, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
BT Express are speeding it up a bit from the first album – hitting more of a disco vein, as would be their due, since they were one of the key groups in inventing the genre! The core ensemble funk sound is still firmly in place, with loads of great horns arranged by the enigmatic Carlos Ward, a jazzy talent who always brought a nice edge to the group's albums. Includes the tasty funk cut "Devil's Workshop", which has a similar feel to "Express" – plus the massive "Peace Pipe", a very catchy number that's always been a favorite in Chicago. Also includes "Discotizer", "Give It What You Got", "Whatcha Think About That?", and "Close To You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Salsoul OrchestraHeat It Up ... LP
Salsoul, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great new chapter for the Salsoul Orchestra – a set that has them working with underground legend Patrick Adams, who gives them an even cooler sound than before! There's more keyboards in the mix than on previous albums – some of those cool and moogy touches that Adams brought to his famous work for P&P and other indie labels – which gives the record an edge that goes way beyond the more familiar Salsoul Orchestra modes – and a quality that's leaner and meaner for the post-disco years! Rhythms are nice and funky – lots of snapping grooves that really give the record an edge – topped with bold vocals from Jocelyn Brown, Loleatta Holloway, and Carol Bramble. Titles include "Take Some Time Out (For Love)", "Comin At Cha", "Heat It Up", "Seconds", and the space themed "Columbia The Space Shuttle". LP, Vinyl record album

Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A killer soul album from Philly – and one that often gets overlooked! The group's a smooth harmony combo with a nice modern finish – perfectly showing the mode that Philly was hitting after the disco years, one that would show that Gamble & Huff still had their ears open to new and sophisticated sounds in music. The record features the excellent mellow groover "I Can't Stop (Turning You On)", plus other nice ones that are more uptempo – like "Midnight Dancer", "Get On Up", "Keep Dancin", and "Love's Gonna Get You In The End".

✨✧ One WayOne Way Featuring Al Hudson (1980) ... LP
MCA, 1980. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Al Hudson and One Way – a set that still has the group bristling with loads of funky energy – yet also hitting a groove that's wonderfully smooth as well! One Way were really one of the top of the larger funk combos of the time – and this set's a great illustration of the way they were able to perfectly balance all their different components, and come up with a sound that was lean, mean, and right on the money! Vocals shift a bit from track to track, as does the groove – and although things are upbeat, they're also never disco at all – nor too "fake funk" either. Some moments echo the coming style of 80s groove, but there's also a deeper soul feel overall, too – especially heard in the mellower ballads, which are as great as the uptempo numbers. Titles include "Something In the Past", "Do Your Thang", "Pop It", "I Wanna Be With You", "You're The One", and "Copy This". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willie HutchMidnight Dancer ... LP
Whitfield/Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A sweet mix of clubby tracks and mellower moments from Willie Hutch – and an overlooked gem from his late 70s years on Whitfield Records! The set's got Willie definitely digging some of the disco styles of the time, but in a way that's never sellout at all – as his vocals and guitar are always right on the money, and rounded out by more laidback moments that retain that spacey, trippy charm of Hutch's earlier records. These mellow tracks are really great – almost more soulful than some of Willie's Motown work, in a style that trades the funk for some sweeter, lighter instrumental touches that really let Willie's vocals take center stage. Titles include "Never Let You Be Without Love", "Kelly Green", "Midnight Dancer", "Everyday Love", "Deep In Your Love", and "Everybody Needs Money". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taste Of HoneyAnother Taste ... LP
Capitol, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
A great album of grooves from Taste Of Honey – arguably their best record, thanks to some super production by The Mizell Brothers! The elements that worked so well on the self-titled smash from the previous year are in just as fine a form here – if not better. There's an overall groove that works wonderfully well, and creates a signature Taste Of Honey sound – soulfully soaring female vocals and spacey disco soul backdrops that's works on deeper level as a whole than they got credit for after the huge crossover hit in the months and year earlier. On the production tip, Larry and Fonce really know how to make the girls' vocals glide beautifully in the instrumention – using all the talents they honed in the jazz funk years, and working up a groove that's catchy, yet still pretty darn soulful. Titles include "Dance", "I Love You", "Do It Good", "Race", "Let's Begin", "Your Love", and "The Rainbow's End". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TavaresSky High ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stone 70s classic from Tavares – quite possibly the group's biggest album, and a masterpiece of LA vocal group soul! The album's biggest claim to fame is the massive hit "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel", recorded by the group for this set, but blown to the heights through it's huge use in the film Saturday Night Fever. But although that hit might mark them as a disco group, Tavares are still very much in the strongest style of their best early vocal group sets – coming together magically as a group, even when the rhythms are a bit uptempo, and sounding great on tracks that include "To The Other Man", "The Mighty Power Of Love", "Bein With You", "Ridin High", "Wonderful", and "Guiding Star".

✨✧ Isaac HayesChocolate Chip ... LP
HBS/ABC, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Slightly later than some of Isaac Hayes' biggest Stax albums – but a great little record that's filled with some excellent smooth soul material! The record shows Hayes really trying to push his style to new levels, and it's got a sophistication that you don't hear on earlier albums – a sound that hints at the Polydor years, but without as much of a disco influence. Ike's also dropped his thing of doing a lot of soul covers of pop tracks – which means that the record's got a lot more original material, served up with a new sort of focus on songwriting! Titles include "Chocolate Chip", a perennial fave on the dancefloor, in both vocal and instrumental versions – plus "I Can't Turn Around", "Come Live With Me", and "Body Language".

Espacial (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A sweet little groover from the Mexican scene of the 70s – a set that's disco, but with a slightly offbeat vibe – a bit like the way that Chakachas was always an offbeat version of funk! Tracks are all nice and long, and really have the energy you'd guess from the Spanglish Movement title – including a bit of flamenco guitar at times, but used very tastefully amidst strong rhythms, warm keyboards, and some especially cool moogy touches that are some of the most compelling aspects of the album! There's a bit of vocals, but these are usually an afterthought amidst the longer instrumental jamming – on titles that include "Cancion Ritual", "No Me Presiones", "Camino Equivocado", and "Deja Que El Mundo Sea Feliz Otra Vez".

A surprisingly groovy soundtrack to a cheesy little Sinbad-esque film – served up with a really thumping electric groove that's mixed with more exotic sounds – almost a disco generation take on the earlier style of Italian adventure soundtracks! The work was done Guido & Maurizio De Angelis – a sequel to the Sandokan film from the previous year – with loads of chiming little and grandly soaring string bits, flute, mandola and sitar sounds– with tight drumming and percussion and even bits of electric keyboard funkiness! Titles include many variations on the main theme, plus "Ritorno A Mompracem" and "La Tigre E Ancora Viva – Sandokan Alla Riscossa", plus "Sweet Lady Blue", Sandokan", and "Mompracem".

Say hello to our little friend – the classic soundtrack to Scarface – a record that showed a whole new side of the talents of the legendary Giorgio Mororder! By the time of this set, Moroder had already broken the charts with disco productions, and turned out to be a groundbreaking soundtrack artist too – but Scarface has Giorgio finding new ways to bring his electronic ideas into play – working with a variety of singers on some tunes that really echo the mad vibe of the narrative – including "Rush Rush" by Deborah Harry, "Vamos A Bailar" by Maria Conchita, "She's On Fire" by Amy Holland, and "Shake It Up" by Elizabeth Daily. The set also features Moroder instrumentals – "Tony's Theme" and "Gina & Elvira's Theme" – and the Paul Engemann performance of "Scarface (Push It To The Limit)". LP, Vinyl record album

This set's got Seguida working in a style that's got a bit more of a dancefloor focus than before – bringing in some of the fuller Latin disco touches that were popular in the wake of Joe Bataan's 70s hits – but also going for a groove that keeps all the group's best soulful elements nicely in tact! The style is smooth, but still has plenty of great instrumentation that includes lots of great fusion jamming – handled with some nice jazz and funk touches on the album's best cuts! Titles include "Om Marreo", "Buscando", "Next To You", "Fields Of Laughter", "Yo Nunca Te Olvidare", and "Finale In B Flat Major". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's got a sweet soulful feel that provides a nice counterpoint to its bass-heavy grooves – popping along at that midtempo pace that was Al's popular remedy for disco on the dancefloor, and which had a crucial effect on soul at the time. The album still plays mighty big here in Chicago, where a classic 80s groove can reign supreme if it's strong enough – and tracks include "You Can Do It", "I Am Under Your Spell", "Guess You Didn't Know It", "Music", "Come Dance With Me", and "Now That I Found You".

The sound here really isn't disco or club, but it's a nicely upbeat groove that shows The Jacksons at the top of their game – tightly stepping and often highly rhythmic – and striking a great balance between strong lead vocals and some of the sweeter harmonies that got them going in the past. Titles include the sublime groovers "Blame It On The Boogie" and "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)", plus great sleepers like "All Night Dancin", "Bless His Soul", "Things I Do For You" and "That's What You Get For Being Polite".

Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation".

Given the West Village cruising cover image, the group's making no bones about their affiliation here – remaking Traffic's "I'm A Man" into a gay club anthem for the late 70s scene! The tune takes up all of side one, and rolls along with a pulsating bassline that's certainly disco, but also points the way towards later Chicago house. Side two features the original numbers "Hear Me Calling" and "Because There Is Music In The Air" – but these tunes don't live up to the strength of the hit. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thomas Buck NastyBlast O Funk ... LP
RCA, 1980. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A fantastic funky set from the Philly scene of the 70s – a record that was maybe a few years late to get the kind of appreciation it deserved – but one with a quality level that stands up wonderfully over the years! Thomas Buck Nasty is both the name of the group and the lead singer – and the combo comes from the streets of Philly, with a harder edge than some of the more polished groups of the time – an ensemble funk approach that was honed through years of work at clubs and parties, to the point where the group's got a groove that's right up there with the sharpest points of the P-Funk universe – but served up with a nicely different vibe! Thomas has this deep soul approach to his vocals, but tuned towards funky rhythms – and the set's got some super-sharp production from T Life, who really lets the group be their own, and never tries to hit any sort of disco or too-commercial cliches of the time. The whole thing feels more like some of the mainstream funk albums circa 1976 than you'd guess from the date – and is almost more like a small label release than some of the more commercial RCA soul of the period. Titles include "That's What I'm Hoping Now", "Locket In The Pocket", "Blast O Funk", "Turn It Loose", "Flashback", and "Does This Mean Our Love Is Over". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Blast O Funk (with bonus tracks) ... CD 13.99
