✨✧ Rupa BiswasDisco Jazz (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A record that's got to be one of the coolest recorded in Calgary during the early 80s – as it offers up a really unusual blend of modes that definitely lives up to its title, and which also borrows a bit from Indian music as well! Singer Rupa Biswas fronts a group that's equally strong on the instrumental tip, and which allow for plenty of room in the tracks to let the players stretch out and solo – in a blend of keyboards and guitar with more traditional sarod and tablas! Rhythms are mostly upbeat, but in ways that are more interesting than the "disco" title implies – especially in 1982 – and the whole thing's maybe first a funky fusion record, which then borrows a bit from Indian percussion, then adds in Rupa's vocals in the lead. Titles include "Aaj Shanibar", "Moja Bhari Moja", "East West Shuffle", and the side-long jam "Ayee Morshume/Be Reham Duniya". LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 27.99
Beat digging heroes Kon & Amir return with a diverse, funky treasure trove of rare dancefloor anthems, rarer disco soul and African boogie cuts – possibly the best yet in their Off Track series for BBE! The east coast duo have dedicated each title in the series to an NYC borough, and Brooklyn is honored this time out – but there's a world of rare and underground club funk & soul presented here! Includes African disco & soul records with all regions dancefloor appeal, raw percussion and bass accented numbers that are tight and punchy and others with a more soaring approach, all of it totally wonderful and hard-to-find – including some we've seen or heard before! The vinyl version features 2LPs with unmixed tracks, with Kon's selections on 2 sides and Amir's on 2 sides – some featured on the mixed 2CD versions plus alternate tracks! Kon's selections include "Burnin Up" (Kon's edit) by SFB, "From The Heart" (Kon's Multi rmx) by Donny McCuillough, "Rock Don't Stop" by Taxie, "More Power To You" by Mazyck Project, "Lost In Space" by Shake and "EOD" by Edge Of Daybreak.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 34.99
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.

✨✧ Far Out Monster Disco OrchestraFar Out Monster Disco Orchestra ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2014. Sealed 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful project that was years in the making – a mix of American club and Brazilian elements – put together by a group that includes members of Azymuth and Banda Black Rio, as well as the legendary Arthur Verocai! Jose Roberto Bertrami's the strongest contributor here – and the music really echoes that great late 70s/early 80s point when the Azymuth fusion groove crossed over into tighter, funkier territory – coming off here with a sound that's got really universal appeal and a wickedly classic vibe overall – like some unusual cross-breeding of Brazilian grooves and Salsoul Records! Vocals are by Mia Mendes and Marcina Arnold, but the instrumentation is even better than the lyrics – filled with jazzy touches, blended with bits of strings, and perfectly produced all the way through. Really tremendous stuff – one of the freshest records we've heard from Far Out in years – with titles that include "Mystery", "Keep Believing", "Dead Dance", "The Last Carnival", "A Disco Supreme", "Vendetta", and "Don't Cha Know He's Alright".

✨✧ Sun RaDisco 3000 ... LP
Saturn, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If this is disco, point us in the direction of Studio 54! The album's one of Ra's greatest from the 70s – recorded in Italy in 1978, and featuring some incredibly otherworldly keyboards. 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!

✨✧ VariousDisco (Not Disco) – Left Field Disco Classics From The New York Underground (3LP set) ... LP
Strut (UK), 2000. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection – an important re-investigation of the unusual mix of sounds and styles on the New York scene in the years after disco – a time when funk, punk, hip hop, and art were all colliding at once – providing a really fresh antidote to the staid sounds of Studio 54! The "disco" in the title should be taken lightly – as these cuts didn't play at the slick uptown dance spots – but were instead the soundtrack for the cool spots happening downtown, as the previous loft culture morphed into clubs, in this very special blend of the energy of CBGB and the underground soulful dancefloors. The set list is filled with classics from this time – and titles include "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "Tell You Today (voc)" by Loose Joints, "Walking On Thin Ice (re-edit)" by Yoko Ono, "Over & Over" by Material, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Seven Seas Players, "Kiss Me Again (original edit)" by Dinosaur, "Move" by Nicky Siano, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, and "Wheel Me Out" by Was Not Was.

Atomic ForestDisco Roar ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 25.98
A really wild album from this Indian psych group of the 70s – a set that's a bit different than their better-known first and second albums, but which is pretty darn groovy overall! The set's definitely somewhere in the "disco" of the title – but not in a slick, commercial way – as the group are working mostly as a funky instrumental combo, with some weird keyboard touches and offbeat production that might be aimed at the dancefloor, but which would have sent folks running for the doors in an American club. Singers appear in a few spots, but the real appeal is the tight, fast, and super-funky instrumentation – honestly even funkier than on their previous albums, which really transforms any tune they try to touch. Titles include "Another Star", "2001", "Life is Anew", "Devil Woman", "I Wish", "Spectrum", and "Smackwater Jack". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousUnder The Influence Vol 6 – A Collection Of Rare Soul & Disco Compiled By Faze Action ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousFrench Disco Boogie Sounds – 1975 to 1984 – Selected By Charles Maurice ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! 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.

GQDisco Nights ... LP
Arista, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Not just disco nights, but some great mellow moments too – a wonderfully well-rounded classic from this great quartet – as tight and groovy as it is cool and classy! By the time of this debut, the group had already had plenty of 70s soul experience as The Rhythm Makers – a previous name for the lineup, and a combo with a great reputation for dancefloor grooves that were tight, but never too uptight – kind of the best funky soul styles of the time! This album definitely continues that tradition, with a sound that's leaner than most mainstream disco of the time – and really well put-together, in a way that also has them slowing down to hit some great ballads and mellower steppers too. The album features the massive disco title cut – "Disco Nights" – and a beautiful reworking of Billy Stewart's classic "I Do Love You" – with a sound that's faithful to the original, but a sweet stepping groove that's made it a favorite for years! Other cuts include "Boogie Oogie Oogie", "Spirit", "Make My Dreams A Reality", "It's Your Love", "I Do Love You", and "Wonderful". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHeed The Call – 17 Of The Choicest Maori/Polynesian Soul, Funk, & Disco Tracks From Aotearoa ... LP
Vostock (New Zealand), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – and comes across in a way that's different than some of the more familiar Australian funk and soul of the same time – maybe more indie to that nation's major label polish – filled with the kinds of tracks that hardly need to answer to anyone in the mainstream – just the freaky folks on the dancefloor at a party! The tunes were recorded over the space of a decade, but almost all of them have a strong mid-70s vibe – pre-disco, but upbeat funk – with sharp instrumentation by musicians who'd clearly be comfortable playing other styles, but who often work here to back up a soulful singer in the lead. Titles include "A House For Sale" by Mark Williams, "You Can Dance" by Collision, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "That's The Kind Of Love I've Got For You" by The 1860 Band, "Mr Funky" by Inbetweens, "I Need Your Love" by Golden Harvest, "You Can Do It" by Tina Cross, "Disco Queen" by Mark Williams, "Don't Give Your Life Away" by The Pink Family, "There's A River" by Sonia & Skee, "Mr Music" by Ticket, "She's Knocking At My Door" by Johnny Rocco Band, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Yandall Sisters, "Total Man" by The Totals", and "Who Do We Think We're Fooling" by Larry Morris.

Tunde MabaduViva Disco ... LP
Afrodisia/Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.98
Long live disco, but not the sort that was big on the American scene of the 70s – as Tunde Mabadu serves up a nicely lean version of the music here – filled with Nigerian funk elements, and plenty of his own great work on tenor and alto sax! The tunes are jumpy, jaunty, and plenty darn catchy – maybe more Afro Funk overall, but speeded up a bit from a few years before - with Tunde at the head of a group that features lots of percussion at the bottom, plenty of riffing guitar and bass, sweet keyboard lines, and two trumpets to punctuate his own work in the lead! Tunde sings a bit, too – which response from two lovely female singers – and titles include "Disco Press Funk", "Angelina Sugar Daddy", "African Parowo", "Amupara Ko Ma Dara", and "Alabosi".

Disco LadiesThree's Company ... LP
Baby Grand/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
These disco ladies are pretty darn great – a lot more deep-voice than some of their club contemporaries – at a level that makes the record way stronger than just another album of grooves! The girls work in trio format – but the record has an approach that puts the vocals first, rather than use them to augment the usual studio work in a funky style – so that there's a rich feel to the record that really knocks it out of the park – almost in an earlier female group mode! The set was recorded in California, and we don't know much else about it – but we can say that tracks include "Woman", "Our Love Is Special", "Better Than Walking Out", "Lovin You Is So Easy", and "I Second That Emotion".

VariousHustle – Reggae Disco – Kingston London New York (expanded 3LP edition – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 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.

How Do You Are (Germany), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest volumes in this always-great series – and one that's a bit different than the rest, and not just because the music is all in French! Previous editions all focused on older music from the glory days of AOR and smooth soul production – but the tracks here are all contemporary, and really show what a fantastic amount of great music has been coming out of the French scene in recent years – music that draws on more than enough 70s and 80s elements to be included in this series, but which also has this very fresh vibe that's completely wonderful – making the compilation the kind of spark that should ignite a whole new fire in your listening landscape. We'll be honest in saying that although we think we pay attention to contemporary French work, most of these tracks were new to us – which is wonderful, and really has us loving tunes that include "L'Amour Tout Nu" by Catastrophe, "J'Essaie" by Ricky Hollywood, "De La Vitesse A L'Ivresse" by Poom, "Feel Better Now" by Jean Tonique, "Aionois" by Bleu Toucan, "Instantane" by Paradis, "La Route De La Trace (Pieuvre rmx)" by Chassol, "Retiens Mon Desire" by Clea Vincent, and "Les Choses Qu'On Ne Peut Dire A Personne (DJ Supermarkt & Jack Tennis romantic slo-disco rmx)" by Bertrand Burgalat.

A cool collection of funky tracks from the Fantasy Records catalog of the 70s – the kind of hip cuts that were often better than mainstream disco – and which sometimes used a bit of jazz in the instrumentation as well! There's a few spacey themes here, but maybe not as much as you'd guess from the cover and title – but that's OK with us, because we can totally dig these down to earth grooves!

Take It Acid Is (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A very cool collection – and a record that's maybe more "cosmic" than it is "discotheque" – as most of these tunes are more funky than they are clubby! That's not a bad thing at all, though – and the whole thing is almost an extension of the initial late 60s use of moog and other electronics with funkier grooves – taken here into territory that's more in line with 70s sound library and soundtrack funk, especially the cop/crime variety! Selections are from a variety of different artists, but all unite in great use of spacey sounds over funky grooves – on titles that include "Saturnus" by Andre Brasseur, "Cat's Eyes" by Life, "Cosmic Sea" by The Mystic Moods, "Dynomite" by Red Paris Group, "Moanin" by Alan Bown, "Husband & Wife" by The People Next Door, "Diabolic Man" by Diabolic Man, "Red Bullet" by Performance, "Virgin Ballet" by Dance Machine, and "Ramses (part 1)" by Pharoah.

Funk Embassy (Estonia), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really ear-opening compilation – one that brings together an insane range of music from Estonia – one of the smaller of the Soviet-era Eastern Bloc nations – and a surprising hotbed of groovy activity! The tunes here are definitely in the funk, disco, and jazz modes promised by the title – but they all often have very unusual approaches to the genres, too – weird ways of coming up with instrumentation, or arranging the rhythms, or laying down the vocals next to some wonderfully jazzy solos – but never in a way that sacrifices the soulful side of the spectrum, as these tunes have plenty of appeal to fans of more familiar West European funk from the time. Vocals are mostly in Estonian – which further makes the tunes sound unique – and titles include "Malestuste Teel" by Eesti Raadio Estraadiorkester, "Rasked Veosed" by Valter Ojakaar, "Keskoo" by Els Himma, "Naed Vaid Oma Silmi" by Tiiu Varik, "Uksi Kuid Vabana" by Marju Kuut, "Mets Neidude Vahel" by Collage, "Marss Eksprompt" by Uno Naissoo, "Leidmine" by Gunnar Graps & Magnetic Band, and "Keskoosamba" by Eesti TV & Raadio Estraadiorkester.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
A huge discovery in music – most of which we've never heard before, and which shows that the Boston scene was getting pretty busy during the classic club years – even if the city's grooves never reached the same fame as cuts from New York, Philly, and other points south! The package is definitely a labor of love – put together by DJ/collector Serge Gamesbourg – who's clearly done a hell of a lot of work to unearth these rare singles and small label releases – records that maybe didn't even make it down to New York City back in the day, and which were probably crowed out of the record racks, even if they did! Most of these cuts are nicely rough around the edges – sometimes in more of a fast funk mode, other times with all the cool offbeat touches of indie label club cuts – and almost all numbers get a special Serge Gamesbourg edit, in order to bring out the grooviest elements of the tracks. Titles include "No More Games" by Larry Wedgeworth & Clique, "All In Good Time" by Wildlife featuring Vi Taylor, "Play It By Ear" by Cojo, "Get Up & Dance Don't Want No Party Poo Pershere" by Carrie Mims & Herbe Lee River Junction, "Feel The Music" by Dreamflight, "I Want Your Body" by Royale, "Free For All" by Second Wind, "I'm Gonna Get You (Meeow)" by Carrie Mims & Herb Lee River Junction, "You Make Me Happy" by Christopher Michael Band, "Keep It Comin On" by Gypsy, and "Fire Funk" by Hypnotics.

Alessandroni first rose to fame doing film score work in the 60s, but by the time of these cuts, he was very much up front as an artist able to take on just about any sort of style – working here in a cool groove that's not entirely the disco promised in the title, and more of an offbeat style of funk that's even groovier! Two tracks feature female lead vocals by Lorena, and I Cantori Moderni sing on all the cuts – titles that include "Baby Come Down" and "I Get You In My Mind", each in two different versions!

A great entry in this really fantastic series – one that's turned us on to more rare club cuts than we can count over the years – and which still stands head and shoulders above most other collections of vintage dancefloor grooves! The tracks here are all hand-picked by Winston – and seem even rarer and more obscure than the previous volumes – not that quality is sacrificed for the sake of rarity, just that the tracks are amazingly fresh discoveries even for ears like ours – which have been well-trained on decades of collecting underground soul and disco! Most of these cuts offer up a nice sideways take on popular modes of the time – grooves that can be grittier or more offbeat, but in a really great way – and the 2LP version features 11 titles that include "Dancing" by Mary Gold, "Let's Do It Together" by The GTs, "Do You Like It" by The Olympics, "Can't Stop Dancin" by Jonnie Vibes Lambert, "We Are Steady Rockin" by Al Man Muntzie & The Embraceables, "More People Than Me" by Synergy with Donnell Pitman, "Sugar Daddy (parts 1 & 2)" by Betty Padgett, "I'm Human" by Lord Of Storm, "If There Is No Struggle (long version)" by Are & Be, "Get Up & Dance Now" by Bramsam, and "Build Your Foundation" by Bollyn Thompson.

✨✧ VariousDisco Gold ... LP
Scepter, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
During the mid 70s, some of the older New York soul indies were the first to get on the disco tip – and one of the biggest was Scepter Records, who found the burgeoning movement to be a perfect foil for some of its older vocal groups and singers. This set is a lost 1975 release on Scepter, featuring disco mixes of tunes that had appeared on the label as singles – all handled by the legendary Tom Moulton, one of the greatest forces in the disco studio scene on the east coast. There's a total of 8 tracks in all – including "Make Me Believe In You" by Patti Jo, "We're On The Right Track" by Ultra High Frequency, "Wan Tu Wah Zuree" by George Tindley, "Ain't No Love Lost" by Patti Jo, "Arise & Shine" by The Independents, and "Needing You" by Clara Lewis.

Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $25.99 28.98
A pretty fantastic selection of rare disco tracks from the American underground – all of them infused with a spiritual message, but served up with grooves that go head to head with some of the best underground club of the time! The mix of positive energy and upbeat grooves is wonderful – and if you've ever heard the Clark Sisters club classic "You Brought The Sunshine", then you'll definitely know the spirit of these tunes! If you're worried about the message being one that you're not into, don't – because there's sort of a universal spirit going on here – one that gets past conventions of the church, and which really goes for a general uplifting message that's totally great – almost a precursor to some of the positive house in more recent decades. And speaking of house, there's less of that here than you'd expect – as most of the instrumentation and production are strongly in the best New York underground modes from the disco years – with less of any 80s or electro soul elements. Titles include "I Believe" by Calvin B Rhone, "Imitations" by Johnson Family Gospel Singers, "Change" by Wisdom, "On That Other Shore" by Harrison Jones & The Voices Of Harmony, "I've Been Converted" by The Converters, "Ain't No Way To Do Wrong" by New Creation, "Take It To The Streets" by Prophecy, "Let The Lord Come In Your Life" by Wisdom, "Keep The Fire" by Paradise, and "Jesus Is On The Mainline" by Mr Jesse R McGuire.

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't think "disco" as in the New York scene at Studio 54 – as these cuts are much deeper and dubbier – served up under the supervision of Bunny Lee by studio maestros Barnabas and Pat Kelly! Instrumentation is by the Aggrovators, but the magic comes equally from the production effects as it does from the massive rhythms by the group – as all the elements are filtered out in space, and criss-cross back and forth in this wonderful way – never too sloppy or experimental, but definitely tripping out with the groove! Vocals are muted when they do make an appearance – and titles include "The Aggrovators Special Dub", "Money In My Pocket Dub", "Portobello Special Dub", "Super Rockers Dub", "The Bomb Dub", "The Killer Dub", and "The Dub Specialist".

✨✧ VariousReal Sound Of Chicago – Underground Disco From The Windy City ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Julie CokerLife In The Limelight – Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976 to 1981 ... LP
Kalita, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $25.99
Classic tracks from the short-but-strong music career of Julie Coker – a huge figure in Nigerian culture, both for her work onscreen and off! Coker recorded a handful of records at the end of the 70s – right at the height of her career – and the tracks here are from two of the three from the time – the albums Tomorrow and Ere Yon. Ere Yon is a very compelling take on more traditional modes of the time – a bit highlife, but often nicely stripped-down, and with these occasional keyboard parts that give a cool spacey sound to the whole thing – a mode that works perfectly with Coker's strong vocal range. The music on Tomorrow is from a few years later, and has a warmer, clubbier vibe – a bit more of the Lagos disco promised in the title, but again handled in a way that's still very unique. Titles include "Iyo Re", "Elelemi", "Ere Yon", "Re Hese", "It's All For You", "Sogio", and "Gossiper Scandal Monger". LP, Vinyl record album

The second album by Made In Brasil – a great San Francisco combo from the 70s, with a flair for jazzy Brazilian tunes that's every bit as great as groups from Rio or Sao Paulo at the time! 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

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

Innovative Leisure, 2018. Sealed ... $4.99
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".

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
That's a suave-looking dude on the cover, and there's some suave-sounding sounds within – the cream of the crop of the hippest spectrum of the French club scene at the start of the 80s, brought together in a beautiful package of grooves! 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.

Egoli (Belgium), Late 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of cuts from a time when the South African scene was discovering a new sort of groove – taking all the electro soul influences that had been bubbling over during the past few years, and forging them into the kind of catchy cuts that should have taken the world by storm! There's definitely elements here of the bigger SA styles that got global play earlier in the 80s – but most of these tunes are also so catchy and tight, they might well be the sort of synth pop tunes coming out of the London scene! Most vocals are in English, and the production is thankfully spare enough to keep these tracks from sounding too commercial – with titles that include "Mjondolo" and "She's A Witch" by The Bees, "Don't Do It" and "Leribe" by Little Big Man, "Mosquito" and "Nopaka" by Whoosha, "Gambling" and "Ano Tambura" by Pamela Nkuta, and "Sbarara", "Roadblock", "Lalavuka", and "Blackjack" by Mafika.

A sweet little record that's way better than you might ever guess from the title – almost more of a jazz funk effort overall, with excellent work on guitar, trumpet, saxes, and keyboards! There's vocals on the album, but maybe more in a backup sort of way – and although the cuts could work on a dancefloor, they've often got the mix of jazz and groove that you'd find in some of the funkier Kudu Records material of the time – which might have been an inspiration for these guys! The album was recorded on the Atlanta scene of the late 70s, with lead guitar from Gary Ruffin – and titles include "Get Up & Get Down", "Summer Love", "Randy's Nap", "Simple Song", and "Journey Through The Night".

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.

One of the rarest albums of the 70s to bear the name of Rudy Ray Moore – even though the raunchy comedian only starred in the film, and didn't create the music! Instead, the grooves here were handled by the obscure Juice People Unlimited – a clubby combo who've got just the right talents for the setting in the title – and whose lineup includes drums from the great James Gadson, and guitar by Paul Jackson Jr! These guys are top-level studio cats, working in a slightly looser setting – which has them spinning out four long funk tracks, all at a length that must have been cut down and edited to heck in the film. Most vocals have a funk-styled chorus mode – but the set does include one straighter funky soul cut, "I Never Wanted To Say Goodbye" – alongside "Spaced Out", "Disco Godfather", and "Shermanizing/One Way Ticket To Hell".

Sweet sexy sounds from Spanish singer Susana Estrada – a performer known for her famous erotic work of the 70s, stepping out here in a set of clubby tracks for the disco generation! The early 80s date of these tracks mark Susana as maybe being a bit later than some of the porn stars turned disco divas of the late 70s – but Estrada's overall approach is a bit different too – maybe a bit wittier, and following in the mode of the liberated sensuality she presented in her writings and theatrical work. Of course, the end result is still some wonderfully breathy female vocals over disco grooves – on tracks sung entirely in Spanish – with titles that include "Machos", "Voy Desnunda", "Espacial", "Hagamoslo Juntos", "Gozame Ya", "Quitate El Sosten", and "Mi Chico Favorito".

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.

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.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! 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.

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.

Boogie On The Mainline (Germany), 1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
German grooves from the 70s got some pretty big global circulation – especially the huge wave of disco records from Munich in the second half of the decade! Yet in the following years, the nation continued a strong soul groove – but one that never fully got its due on this side of the Atlantic – quite possibly because the sounds here are a lot more soulful and subtle – cooler, classier, and with a much deeper vibe! The guys on the cover of the collection might look a bit goofy, but don't let that put you off – as there's a strength to these tunes that maybe reminds us of some of our favorite Bay Area funk of the 70s – a nice criss-crossing of influences from jazz, funk, and soul – but always trying to do something new as well. There's definite 80s elements in the mix – beats, basslines, and keyboards – but there's also a fair bit of live instrumentation that's extremely well-played, and mostly mixed with English language vocals. Titles include "Get Up" by Squish, "Backstreetboy" by Bernie L, "Funky Feeling" by Publicity, "Don't Stay For Breakfast" by Stroer, "You're Just Yourself" by Upstairs, "You Are Not The One For Me" by Peter Patzer, "Strawberry Wine" by Imagination, "Dancing Shoes" by JD Lewis, "Keep On Lovin" by The Poptown Syndicate, and "It's Not Over" by Trust.

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.

✨✧ VariousDisco Dildar – DIY Disco From The Pakistani Pop Workshop ... LP
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.

ChangeLove 4 Love ... LP
Original Disco Culture (Italy), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Wonderful new work from Change – the international soul combo who made some classic cuts back at the start of the 80s – still sounding great all these many years later, but in a slightly different way! The balance between all elements here is fantastic – as the music has all the best parts of the group's earlier music, but also updates the sound a bit – in the way that a combo like Incognito or Brand New Heavies were updating older soul music back in the 90s, by grabbing all the strongest parts of the past, and fusing them into a fresh lean groove. The songs are upbeat, positive, and full of the kind of catchy hooks that Change always did so well – and titles include "Friends", "Make Me Go Cray", "How Will We", "Too Late", "Living Monday", "Love 4 Love", "All My Life", and "Hit Or Miss". Also includes some remix versions of older tracks – "Searching (Figo Sound version)", "Oh What A Feeling (Figo Sound version)", "You'll Always Be A Part Of Me (Figo Sound version)", and "It's A Girl's Affair (Figo Sound version)".

✨✧ Teddy PendergrassLife Is A Song Worth Singing ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Sublime solo material from the great Teddy Pendergrass – the kind of record that instantly proves that his departure from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes was a great idea, as the man alone is even more of a power to be reckoned with! The set's a cornerstone in that great second wave of Philly soul from Gamble & Huff – that point when the rest of the world was picking up on the disco grooves they forged earlier in the 70s, and they went for a more adult, more sophisticated style with singers like Teddy, Jean Carn, Phyllis Hyman, and others. The whole thing's perfect – and nicely balances between mellow moments and groovers – with gems that include the always-great "Close The Door", the massive "When Somebody Loves You Back", and other cuts that include "Get Up Get Down Get Funky Get Loose", "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "Cold Cold World", and "It Don't Hurt Now".

✨✧ FunkadelicFunkadelic – Reworked By Detroiters (3LP set) ... LP
Westbound (UK), Early 70s/2017. Sealed 3LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The classic sound of Funkadelic, reworked by a key selection of contemporary talents from the Detroit scene – but never in a way that wrecks the originals at all! Unlike other remix projects, which might break up the music to a point that you can hardly recognize the original grooves – this set does a wonderful job of maintaining all the integrity of the famous funky recordings by the group, while also letting some artists from the group's hometown also include a few of their own contributions too – all in ways that really expand the original vision of the music, while keeping things in a funky soul vein all the way through! Given all the greateness of Detroit grooves in recent years – from that city's very fertile underground of producers and musicians – the sound here is still even more amazing than we expected, and the album's a very fitting one to be issued on the Westbound label. The set's double-length, and for good reason too – and titles include "Music 4 My Mother (Underground Resistance mix)", "Sexy Ways (Recloose disco flip)", "Get Your Ass Off & Jam (Marcellus Pittman rmx)", "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure (Alton Miller mix)", "Super Stupid (Dirtbombs version)", "Music For My Mother (Andres Wo Ahh Ay voc mix)", "Cosmic Slop (Moodymann mix)", "Be My Beach (Mophono & Tom Thump)", "Let's Make It Last (Kenny Dixon Jr edit)", "Let's Take It To The Stage (Amp Fiddler @Ya mix)", "Undisco Kidd (Gay Marvine edit)", "Looking Back At You (Ectomorph stripped & dubbed)", and "Standing On The Verge (Anthony Shake Shakir & T Dancer rmx)".

✨✧ VariousTokyo Nights – Female J-Pop Boogie Funk 1981 to 1988 ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, 1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 27.98
A great look at the bright world of female soul in Japan during the 80s – a time when the nation was hitting some of its greatest heights of the postwar years – and was coming up with a magical musical groove to follow! While disco reigned in American clubs in the late 70s, the style really took off in Tokyo during the following decade – maybe mixed a bit with European and 80s club styles, but still unabashedly as upbeat and bubbling as American work of previous years – all to showcase a range of female singers whose style really matches the groove! The music takes off a bit from that shift into soul by Japanese jazz singers in the 70s – but is much farther than that mode overall, especially once the beats and keyboards get going. The package does a great job of being faithful to this legacy – and includes notes on each song and artist, along with album covers too. Titles include "Wanna Kiss" by Hitomi Tohyama, "Dancin" by Junko Ohashi, "Dress Down" by Kaoru Akimoto, "I'm In Love" by Aru Takamura, "Broken Eyes" by Mariko Tone, "TNT" by Rie Murakami, "Love Is A Work Of Mind" by Ra Mu, "Mystical Composer" by Kikuchi Momoko, and "Sky Restaurant" by Yumi Seino.

✨✧ Eko RooseveltEko Roosevelt 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Nubiphone (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A great collection of grooves from Eko Roosevelt – a singer with roots in Cameroon, but a career that largely focused on the Paris scene of the late 70s and early 80s – where Roosevelt developed a superb ability to blend sounds from his roots with more contemporary club-based styles! Most of this work is in the best Afro-Disco mode – tunes that move at an upbeat pace for a modern dancefloor, yet still have live instrumentation, and a very soulful vibe throughout – one that also comes through in the vocals – which have this extra-nice quality, due to an inherently raspy approach from Eko. The collection is the first reissue we've seen to focus on his work – and titles include "Kilimanjaro My Home", "M'Ongele M'am", "Njuke Bonene", "Fly Me Back To Kribi", "Manyaka", "Fantasie Bantou", and "Osi Bakele Mba".

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".

Sweet electric keys from the great Richard Tee – issued on Bob James' classic Tappan Zee imprint! Tee was one of the 70s best studio keyboard players – and his talents showed up on plenty of great Atlantic soul albums, and a fair number of jazz-related dates. This album, one of his few on his own, features Tee out front, soloing keyboards, in very much a Bob James kind of way. The set's perhaps a bit disco/R&B, more so than some of James' own work at the time – but it's still got a nice jazz component, and features work by Eric Gale on guitar, Tom Scott on saxes, and the great Steve Gadd on drums. Titles include "Virginia Sunday", "First Love", "Strokin", "Jesus Children Of America", and "I Wanted It Too". LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A really beautiful little record from Wade Marcus – one that features Wade's great talents for soulful arranging, but with plenty of jazzy touches over the top! The set's got a decidedly disco feel at times, but also uses main soloists on all tracks – creating a strong sense of the solo moment in a lusher setting, in a style that's a bit like some of the more fully arranged albums on Kudu. The real standout is a take on "Poinciana" that runs for 7 minutes long – using great solo work from Fred Jackson and Joe Sample in an arrangement of the tune that expands off of Ahmad Jamal's version, and which has some great nods to his original touches! Other titles include "Metamorphosis", "Funk Machine", "Would You Like To Ride", and "Journey To Morocco" – and other soloists include Jerome Richardson, Lee Ritenour, Dorothy Ashby, and Bill Green.

✨✧ Stephanie MillsWhatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'? ... LP
20th Century, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Soaring soul from Stephanie Mills – one of the lady's all-time hits, and for good reason too! The album really gives Stephanie's great voice a lot of focus – an upbeat, uptempo groove that sets her firmly on the dancefloor, but always with a touch of class – and a lot more depth than some of the easy come/easy go disco divas of her day! Thanks here is clearly due to the team of Reggie Lucas and Mtume – who strike strongly with the album as one of their key early productions – the sort of work that really helped push mainstream soul a bit further at the end of the 70s, and set some new tones for a lot of growth in the next decade. The keyboards on the record are almost as nice as the vocals – played by Hubert Eaves and Harry Whitaker with a nice degree of sensitivity – hardly the stronger keyboard voice of the early 80s soul scene, and often with a dose of jazziness that's really appreciated. Titles include "What Cha Gonna Do With My Lovin'", "Deeper Inside Your Love", "Feel The Fire", "Put Your Body In It", "Starlight", and "Don't Stop Dancin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Evans PyramidEvans Pyramid ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Rare grooves from Evans Pyramid – a sweet set of cosmic disco from the end of the 70s – recorded with a lean, almost spiritual vibe – quite similar to some of the great tracks reissued in the Soul Cal series! There's a definite ear for the dancefloor here – lots of upbeat rhythms, touched with sweet keyboards riffs, and layered with vocals that are almost an afterthought – yet have their own sort of message at the right moment. The group's the brainchild of Andre Evans, an artist whose huge legacy of music business work includes stints with Dyke & The Blazers, Little Anthony & The Imperials, and Tribe – as well as a host of key album sessions as well – but the sound is unlike any of those references, and has this great stripped-down late 70s club vibe throughout. The rare album is offered here with unreleased bonus tracks – and titles include "Rubber Band", "Never Gonna Leave You", "Dip Drop", "No I Won't", "Soul Petrol", and "Dance A Thon".

The clubby aspects of the group's sound are played up by arranger/producer Jeff Lane – who'd worked often with BT Express and Brass Construction, and finds a similar groove here with Aquarian Dream – one in which all the best elements are focused strongly on the rhythms! A few mellower moments round things out nicely with a jazzy vibe – and titles include "Disco Juice", "Gettum Up And Dance", "Big Boy", "Why Can't We Do It Like We Used To", "Dirty Trick", and "Love Slave".

The album's got a bit more punch than some of their previous efforts – almost a not towards the dancefloor at times, yet hardly the disco you'd get from other groups of the period – and more a prefiguring of the sounds of the future from various UK and European sources! There's some great electro moments that made the record a favorite for the New York scene in the early 70s – including some wicked vocoder bits, and tight beats on a few numbers. Titles include the excellent "The Model" – plus "The Man Machine", "Neon Lights", "The Robots", "Spacelab", and "Metropolis". LP, Vinyl record album

Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $29.99
A really great set of Italian electronics – a set that's maybe known better to Americans than most of the generation, due to a surprising 70s release on Folkways Records! Yet this set is quite different than the more academic electronics that usually grace that label – and echo more that shift towards moogier modes that would really crest in the Italian clubs of the next decade – still here more in a sound library mode, but turned towards nice little tunes that move between spacey instrumentals and keyboard groovers! Gianni Safred plays a range of different instruments – minimoog, polymoog, Arp Odyssey, Fender Rhodes, and Roland keyboards – layering the electronics in a way that's nice and warm, and surprisingly soulful at most moments too. Tracks include "Jazz Computer", "Future City Traffic", "Electronic Brain", "Supermind", "The Life To Come", "Disco Satellite", "Autumn 2001", and "Robot Party". LP, Vinyl record album

A great album of jazzy club tracks – put together by John Usry Jr, who'd done some work with other 70s club acts like Three Degrees, Love Committee, and First Choice. Most of the tracks on the record feature female backing vocals – in the style of work by those other groups – but the real standout aspect is a jazzy harp, played in a manner that makes us think of Dorothy Ashby going disco. The best cut on the album is the 8 minute "Nightfall", which has some great trumpet work by Guido Basso – and other nice moments include the mellow "Touching", and the cuts "I Got Your Love" and "Love Me", which both have some nice guitar. Recorded in Canada, and very typical of that baroque Canadian approach to disco. LP, Vinyl record album

A seminal album from the great Patti Labelle – a set that allowed the singer to mature strongly and find her own voice away from the funky, rockish style of Labelle – this sophisticated style that marked a whole new level of the singer's career! The Philly International label turned out to be a perfect setting for Patti – as they too were also growing past some of their earlier styles – moving past the chart soul of the 70s, and some of their bigger disco hits – and finding just the right place to allow their artists to keep on growing strongly over the years. The album's an all-adult affair – no clunky commercial moments at all, and instead this great blend of jazzy currents and sophisticated soul – all handled with the excellent second generation Philly International approach! Titles include "I'm In Love Again", "Love Lives", "Love Need & Want You", "I'll Never Never Give You Up", "If Only You Knew", "Body Language", and "When Am I Gonna Find True Love".

The great Harvey Fuqua's producing here with Syl, and the sound is rich and bold – an even more prideful statement than Sylvester's first album on Fantasy. Two Tons Of Fun deliver some great backup vocals, and Cowley lays down a bit of keyboards – and titles include the all-time disco classic "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real", plus "Dance (Disco Heat)", "Just You & Me Forever", "Grateful", and "I Took My Strength From You".

Matthews was the mainman behind the legendary funk group The Grodeck Whipperjenny, and a key arranger in James Brown's sound of the Polydor years – but by this time, he moved into smoother club-type jazz, of the sort he'd penned for Idris Muhammad and other artists on the Kudu label. However, Matthews' always had a talent for the funky groove – and even these otherwise pop disco numbers shine with a musical intensity that surprises us – especially at moments like the funky drumbreak on "You Keep Me Hanging On", the freaky moog on "Shoogie Wanna Boogie", the funky bass solo on "California Dreaming", and the excellent keyboard work on "Gotta Be Where You Are".

And yes, this isn't classic Curtis from the righteous years – but the surprising thing is how well his voice really holds up in the tracks – coming through with a strength that's fresh and surprising, given some of his disco contemporaries, and sounding pretty darn nice overall, thanks to some tight arrangements by the likes of Fred Wesley, Norman Harris, and Gil Askey. Linda Clifford does a duet with Curtis on "Between You Baby & Me", and the other cuts include "Victory", "Tell Me Tell Me", "You're So Good To Me", "You Better Stop", and "Over The Hump".

Come As You Are is filled with solid soul with a sophisticated, expertly spun approach to production and arranging around the duo vocals – and the first rate songwriting that they'd provided for huge Motown stars like Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye. A couple tracks move more towards a dancefloor soul vibe that's pretty wonderful, and doesn't compromise the intimate soul vocals at the center. Titles include "It'll Come, It'll Come, It'll Come", "One More Try", "Believe In Me", "Caretaker", "Somebody Told A Lie", "Tell It All", "Sell The House" and "It Came To Me".

Excellent early work from Al Hudson – a soulful talent who stood his own in the late 70s, forging an up-tempo funk sound that lived long past disco, and which was sort of a platform for groups of the 80s to build a new dancefloor sound. Hudson relied heavily on bass-y funk to hit his groove, but he also gave strong focus to the good singers who worked with his groups – adding in good ballads that act as a showcase to members like bassist Kevin McCord, who sings some great vocals on this set. The album kicks off with the up-tempo groover "Spread Love", an anthemic dancefloor tune that almost points the way towards soulful house, and it's got some other nice cuts, like the ballads "Lost Inside Of You" and "Love Me Forever", plus the funky numbers "How Do You Do", and "Dance, Get Down".

✨✧ MandrillBeast From The East ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Post-Polygram, but still some nice funkiness from this classic 70s group. The record's got much of the feel of their early 70s work – with lots of tasty electric keyboards, soulful percussion, and an always-driving groove. Titles include "Disco Lypso", "Honey Butt", "Ratchet", and "Aqua Magic". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eli's Second ComingEli's Second Coming ... LP
Silver Blue, 1977. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not to be confused with the Laura Nyro hit "Eli's Coming", this group's one that's headed up by Philly Soul maestro Bobby Eli – composer of, producer for, and guitarist on countless 70s soul hits! The group's Bobby's own, and has a sound that's very much in keeping with the best Philly disco of the period – with likely suspect players that include Ron Kersey on keyboards, Vince Montana on vibes, and Larry Washington on congas. Most tunes feature a 3-woman vocal chorus singing the lyrics – very much in the classic Philly female disco group mode – and titles include "Heavenly", "Foxfire, "Lickety Split", "Love Chant", "Why Don'cha", "Hop Scotch", and oh, a version of "Eli's Coming"!

Munich MachineMunich Machine ... LP
Casablanca, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A self-titled set from the mighty Music Machine – a studio ensemble who were as important to the sound of European club music in the 70s as Instant Funk and MFSB were to the Philly scene in the US! The Machine features a host of players who'd previously backed Donna Summer and other Giorgio Moroder projects, stepping out here as an act on their own – grooving tightly with the kinds of stretched-out disco modes that Moroder really helped pioneer, graced by some excellent keyboards from Thor Baldursson! Most cuts have some sort of chorus vocals – sung by Madeline Bell, Sue Glover, and Sunny Leslie – and titles include the extended "Get On The Funk Train", a short remake of "Love To Love You Baby", and the cuts "Spring Affair", "Trouble Maker", "Try Me I Know We Can Make It", and "I Wanna Funk With You Tonight".

El CocoDancing In Paradise ... LP
AVI, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great mix of moog, clavinet, organ, and slight exotic touches in the percussion – and another compelling disco album from the godlike hands of Michael Lewis and Laurin Rinder! The album retains the exotic elements of the group's earlier records, but hits a smoother disco sound that gives the funky keyboards a lot of room to work around. There's some great instrumental solos on just about every cut – and titles include "It's Your Last Chance", "Afrodesia", "Dancing In Paradise", and "Love In Your Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MooreThis Is It ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real stormer from Melba Moore – brilliantly-arranged dancefloor soul with beautiful lead vocals by Melba – on one of her best records of the 70s! Melba is straight-up amazing here, bringing genuine soul to feverish dancefloor gems and otherwise soaring numbers. This Is It was produced and arranged by Van McCoy, who was at the peak of his disco-era popularity at the time. We'd call this work here on Melba's record a creative peak for Van – even though if it didn't break Melba out in a big way commercially at the time. It includes the McCoy-penned should-be classic "This Is It", plus "Free", "Stay A While", a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Make Me Believe In You", "Lean On Me" (one of the greater showpieces for Melba's incredible voice), "Blood Red Roses", "Brand New" and more.

Mercury, 1978. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After a bit of work in the early disco underground, this is Gary's move to a major label, with a slicker sound than before, but still has some nice dance tracks. Includes the track "1-2-3-4 (Let's Do It Again)", "It's All Up To You", "Watch Out For The Lady", "Walk On By", "She's Somethin' Else", 'Superfine Lady", "Miami", "Feeling Good Again", "Gary's Love Theme" and "Welcome To Harlem".

RokkI Want To Live High ... LP
Soul Craft/Numero, 1976. Near Mint- ... $16.99
An amazing bit of soulful funk from the 70s – never issued at the time, but with a mindblowing quality that we'd rank right next to some of our rare favorites from the decade! The set's not just rare for rare's sake – but has this sound that's really special – kind of a bottom that comes from jazz funk, which is then topped with righteous vocals from male and female members of the group – in a style that certainly echoes the 70s work by artists like Roy Ayers or Pleasure! There's some great flute in the lead at times, and plenty of keyboards – and although the music's upbeat, the approach is never club or disco – and instead still holds onto the jazzier elements in the way you'd find on the best Fantasy Records funk from the time. Titles include "Baby Please", "I Want To Live High", "It Better Git Better", "Don't Be No Fool", "Patience", and "You've Been Gone Too Long". LP, Vinyl record album

ChicRisque ... LP
Atantic, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
Risque is a massive classic from Chic – a record that's worth it alone for the classic cut "Good Times" – a buoyant groover that was instantly timeless upon release, and went on to transform the sound of disco, hip hop, and many other styles to come! The whole thing's great, though – full of that perfect Nile Rodgers studio genius – with just the right sort of bass, beats, and riffing guitars – all peppered with vocals that really do a heck of a lot with just a little. In addition to "Good Times", other cuts include "A Warm Summer Night", "My Forbidden Lover", "What About Me", "My Feet Keep Dancing", and "Can't Stand To Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Sealed ... $4.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice mellow grooves with a decent enough jazzy feel. Titles include "Dancin Singin", "We Love To Party", "Brother To Brother", "Vibrations", and "I'm Gonna Take Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BreakwaterSplashdown ... LP
Arista, 1980. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No splashdown here – as Breakwater are every bit as soaringly soulful as they were on their debut set! The groove here is that perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", "The One In My Dreams", and the monster sample cut "Release The Beast". Great stuff, and with a really beautiful vibe! LP, Vinyl record album

WhispersWhispers (1979) ... LP
Solar, 1979. Sealed ... $4.99
One of our favorite albums by The Whispers – a later gem with some really great songs, and a sound that shows the group strongly moving into hit territory! In some way, the album's almost a return to the mellow harmony soul of the group's roots – slowing down the pace from the disco years to craft some extremely great ballads and midtempo numbers. There's still a bunch of great club tracks too – like the classic "And The Beat Goes On" – but in a way, our favorite tracks are the mellower ones, like "Lady", "I Love You", and the sublime, "A Song For Donny", a tribute to the late Donny Hathaway, written around the music of his classic "This Christmas".

✨✧ VariousTwin Cities Funk & Soul – Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St Paul 1964 to 1979 ... LP
Secret Stash, Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson.

Vicki Sue RobinsonVicki Sue Robinson ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Full on disco from Vicki Sue Robinson – a bit crossover at times, but handled with a top-shelf approach all the way through! Maestro Warren Schatz produced and arranged the set – and the tunes have a smoothly grooving approach that really lets Vicki flow out nicely in advance of the hook – then bring things back home strongly on the chorus. Titles include some great ones by Gordon Grody – "Something Like A Dream", "Let Me Down Easy", and "How About Me" – plus a version of "Daylight" by Bobby Womack. Other tracks include "Should I Stay/I Won't Let You Go", "Can't Find No Love", and "After All This Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Megatone, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Spaced out, synth heavy disco and new wave from the producer behind many of Sylvester's most popular tracks. As you might guess from the title, this is an early 80s electro future disco affair, with pulsating grooves, broad washes of synths and percolating rhythm tracks: "Tech-No-Logical World", "Invasion", "They Came At Night", "Mind Warp", "Primitive World", "Mutant Man" and "Goin' Home".

SpaceMagic Fly ... LP
United Artists, 1977. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Legendary cosmic disco from Space – a group who really live up to their name with a trippy use of electronics and keyboards over clubby rhythms! The album's a landmark from the time when previous prog ideals were finding a great new space in the discos – and although a few cuts here are upbeat and groovy, there's also some mellower, more spacey moments too – all a great showcase for the group's leader, keyboardist Didier Marouani! The record played big on both sides of the fence, on both sides of the Atlantic – and continues to win over new generations with its futuristic grooves. In addition to the big title cut "Magic Fly", other tracks include "Velvet Rape", "Tango In Space", "Fasten Seat Belt", and "Ballad For Space Lovers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPlastic Dance Vol 1 – Domestic Synth Pop & Plugged-In Punk – Compiled By Andy Votel & Doug Shipton ... LP
Cache Cache (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most groove-heavy collections we've ever heard from the team of Andy Votel and Doug Shipton – a set that's got a lot warmer vibe than you might expect from the styles mentioned in the title! Most of the cuts here have a sweet post-disco sort of approach – lean instrumentation fused onto grooves that represent the more cutting edge sound of the underground in the early 80s – styles that definitely learn a lot from the changes on the post-punk world, but which also find a way to keep things aimed at a crossover dancefloor! As usual with the pair, there's plenty here you never would have discovered otherwise – and titles include "Killing Car" by Philippe Brejean, "The Fremen" by Zed, "My Time" by The Tunes, "You Can Choke Like That" by Biting Tongues, "Tyklo Punk Rock" by Andrezj Korzynski, "Cruise Missle Blues (inst)" by Sirons, "Horizontal DIY" by 53 Bus, and "There's A Star In You" by Don Gere.
