✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... LP
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $19.99
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.

✨✧ VariousAmerican Boogie Down – America's Lost Disco, Funk, & Boogie ... LP
Past Due, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 29.99
A massive batch of rare club tracks unearthed by Chicago's Past Due label, packaged together wonderfully as a document of a lost side of soul and disco! So far, Past Due's efforts have only surfaced as expensive 12" singles – so this collection is the first full length set to showcase the label's music – a treasure trove of under-discovered gems from the indie soul underground of the late 70s and early 80s! The music is to the far left of some of the better-known club work from the east coast of the time – including that of P&P Records – and most cuts here almost fall more in the upbeat funk mode than conventional disco grooves you'd find on bigger labels. Most numbers groove along in a wave of bumping bass, sweet keyboards, and other hip instrumental touches – and vocals are usually deep and soulful, much more so than in ordinary club. Titles include "Galaxy" by Visions Of Tomorrow, "Midnight Rhythm" by The Right Direction, "The Heat Is On" by Lonnie Givens, "Get Up Get Down & Let Your Body Pop" by Greyship Daviz, "Dance" by Destiny In Time Band, "Party" by Monofide, "Kiss You Everywhere" and "You Are Number One" by Devarne, "You Bring Out The Best In Me" by Destiny In Time, and "If You Like What We're Doing" by The Fabulous Kings.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ VariousLovin Mighty Fire – Nippon Funk Soul Disco 1973 to 1983 ... LP
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.

✨✧ 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)".

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 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.

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily 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)... $23.99 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".

✨✧ Bunny Lee & The AggrovatorsSuper Dub Disco Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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".

Westbound (UK), Late 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
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.

A soaring disco symphony from Camouflage – a studio project from Meco, with vocals by the lovely Mysti! There's definitely a full, rich quality to the music, but some of the rhythms are pretty lean too – some tight rhythms mixed with the larger strings in the symphony – that great balance you'll find on classic work from the Casablanca label! The centerpiece of the record is a 15 minute version of "MacArthur Park", which is merged with the group's "Disco Symphony", in some nice arrangements by Harold Wheeler. The two other cuts – "Bee Sting" and "Take A Ride" – are nice and long, with a good disco groove as well! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFrench Disco Boogie Sounds Vol 3 – 1977 to 1987 – Selected By Charles Maurice ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
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.

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.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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+ ... $6.99
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

Boogie On The Mainline (Germany), 1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
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.

Sun RaDisco 3000 ... LP
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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 that are some of his most enigmatic on record! 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 three more long tracks – the sweetly soulful "Friendly Galaxy", a great soul jazz number; "Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens", which has spooky organ, frenetic bass, and somber percussion; and the track "Third Planet".

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

Motown, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A follow-up to the legendary Magic Disco Machine Disc-O-Tech LP on Motown – and while not as over the top funky as that one, still a nice bit of longer club tracks done in a sweet early disco mode of the time! Arrangements are by William Goldstein, James Carmichael, and Paul Riser – and tunes are all longish, with a mostly instrumental feel that's sometimes supported by chorus vocals. Tracks on the set are all originals, and tunes include the great clavinet-heavy groover "Bend A Little", plus "Midnight Rhapsody", "Back To Bach", "Get Cute", "Second Avenue" and "Wait Like A Lady".

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.

Salsoul (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
A killer batch of classic Salsoul from the dawn of the 80s – leaner, tighter and more dancefloor geared club soul than the song the more string-laden and sing-a-long chorus style of the late 70s oeuvre, but way more lively than the synth-soaked and streamlined digital era boogie sound to come later on! 12" mixes of benchmark tracks by Skyy, Rafael Cameron, Aurra, Leroy Burgess, Edwin Birdsong, Funk Deluxe and more, including "First Time Around (Larry Levan Canadian 12" Mix)" by Skyy, "Boogie's Gonna Get Ya (Francois Kevorkian 12" Instrumental Mix)" by Rafael Cameron, "Checking You Out (Shep Pettibone Mix)", "Win Tonight (12" Mix)" by Edwin Birdsong, "Heavenly (12" Mix)" by Leroy Burgess, "This Time (12" Mix)" By Funk Deluxe, "Falling In Love (12" Mix)" by Surface and "On The Phone" by Civil Attack.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $28.99 29.99
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.

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.

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.

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.

Wan Chai (Hong Kong), Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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.

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.

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.

We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination! 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.

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
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 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grace JonesDisco Years (Portfolio/Fame/Muse/bonus tracks) (4LP 180 gram vinyl set – with bonus download) ... LP
Island (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $39.99
Some of the biggest moments of Grace Jones' career – the records that really helped her cross over big as a singer, and find a great home on the dancefloors of the disco generation! First up is the album Portfolio – a landmark little record from Grace Jones – a set that started off as one of those "hey, let's see if this model can sing" sort of records – but which has gone onto become an enduring classic! Most of the tunes are older ones, but they're remade with a soaring Sigma Sound groove by the best in Philly – taking sometimes-cloying lyrics and pushing them into hipper disco territory for the 70s – all with that odd wink and subtle sense of irony that would emerge more clearly in Jones' later records. Tom Moulton produced and mixed, and titles include "I Need A Man", "La Vie En Rose", "Sorry", "Tomorrow", "What I Did For Love", and "Send In The Clowns". Fame is a classic disco stormer from Grace Jones – recorded at Sigma Sound with a real Philly groove, thanks to arrangements from John Monster Davis – and produced with a full, soaring sound from the legendary Tom Moulton! The set may well be Grace's true club classic from the late 70s – a record that works both on the quirky levels of her early rise to fame, and on the more soulful expectations mainstream clubgoers had at the time – a beautiful balance that owes plenty to the input from Davis and Moulton! Titles include "Do Or Die", "Pride", "Fame", "Below The Belt", and "Am I Ever Gonna Fall In Love In New York City". Muse has Grace Jones still riding high on a disco wave here, but also finding her own space and sound too! The mighty Tom Moulton produced, ensuring some great sound for the set – and arrangements are by Thor Baldursson and John Davis, both of whom bring in nice sense of fullness, but never smother Grace too much – a key factor, given that her vocal approach is often a bit more restrained than some of the other disco divas of the time. There's less covers here than before, and Grace herself even penned some of the tunes. Titles include "Suffer", "Sinning", "Saved", "Atlantic City Gambler", "On Your Knees", and "Don't Mess With The Messer". Box set also features a full bonus album of all the rare mixes from singles – including "Sorry (disco mix)", "That's The Trouble (disco mix)", "I Need A Man (disco mix)", "La Vie En Rose (7" mix)", "Do Or Die (12" disco)", "Comme Un Oiseau Qui S'Envole (12" disco)", "On Your Knees (12" disco)", and "Don't Mess With The Messer (12" version)". Also features a booklet of notes, new mastering, 180 gram vinyl, and a great box! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Nucleus, 1976. Sealed ... $29.99
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

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

This set has both standout staples and gems from deeper in the vaults, here in nice, long, re-worked & re-edited versions that celebrate the soul sound at the core of the tracks, while highlighting the dancefloor aspects.

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!

The sound is electric, but also pretty darn funky – not the colder electro disco that would dominate the European scene in the 80s, but the earlier mode that often had lots of live instrumentation at the core – then augmented by sweet touches on moog and other keyboards! The instrumentation is nice and tight throughout – and the whole thing is very much in the best moogy disco modes of the underground – maybe a bit more offbeat than a record on P&P, but with a similar appeal at times. Not much is known about the original group – but titles include "Space Ship", "Briskness", "To Squeeze Through", "Fancy Good", "Disco Fashion", and "Off The Track". LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

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.

Fantastic sounds from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – a group with family ties to Azymuth and Incognito, and who work here in the best blend of Brazilian and soulful elements that might imply! 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".

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

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".

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.

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.

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".

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)".

Capitol, 1978. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Man and machine – a perfect summation of the Kraftwerk genius, delivered perfectly on this classic late 70s set! 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

✨✧ AtmosfearEn Trance ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Some of the greatest club tunes ever cut for the UK scene – a sublime album of jazzy spacey instrumentals by the legendary Atmosfear! The group were almost a UK equivalent of the sounds coming out of New York from the P&P camp at the end of the 70s – as they worked in the shadows of mainstream disco, but with a sound that was leaner, more stripped-down, and often touched with keyboard styles borrowed heavily from jazz funk and fusion. There's a simplicity to the Atmosfear groove that's totally great – a real focus on snapping drums, spacey keyboards, and trippy basslines – never too complicated, but always a cut above the more familiar grooves of the time. Includes "Free Tonight", "Duende", "Creators Dream", "Interplay", "Funk The Rock", "Invasion" and "Return Of LB". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beastie BoysHot Sauce Committee Part 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Grand Royal/Capitol, 2011. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $79.99
Hip hop lifers and genre-defiant pop art blenders The Beastie Boys deliver the Hot Sauce – either their 8th or 9th album in 25 years, depending on how you count the Mix Up instrumentals set – a return to the good times hip hop funk style-hopping that the Boys flaunted so brilliantly in the period from Check Your Head to Hello Nasty! Hot Sauce was initially solicited as Part 1 to be followed by a Part 2, but the album was put on hold while Yauch battled cancer, which gave the Beasties plenty of time to finesse the material and release it as the definitive project we have here. It's solid stuff and a Beastie Boys album through-and-through – and they're as immune to trends as ever. Guests include Nas, Santigold and Switch. Tracks include "Make Some Noise", "Nonstop Disco Powerpack", "Too Many Rappers (New Reactionaries Version)" with Nas, "Lee Majors Comes Again", "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" feat Santigold, "Tadlock's Glasses", "The Lisa Lisa/Full Force Routine", "Here's A Little Something For Ya" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black vinyl pressing, including a digital download, a bonus 7 inch with "B Boys In The Cut " & "Pop Your Balloon" & an iron on! Still in the original plastic outer sleeve, with a promo sticker on back.)

✨✧ BT ExpressNon-Stop ... LP
Roadshow, 1975. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Bee GeesIdea ... LP
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Things are getting slightly more complicated for the Bee Gees here – but we mean that in a good way! The vocals are superb – soaring forth with this unique sort of majesty, and light years away from their 70s disco pop styles – and the backings are a strange mix of rootsy and orchestral – making for a very odd juxtaposition that really seems to push the whole thing forward brilliantly! There's nobody else like the Bee Gees at this point in their career – a possible acquired taste, but one that's got you hooked once you get it! Titles include "When The Swallows Fly", "In The Summer Of His Years", "Indian Gin And Whiskey Dry", "I've Gotta Get A Message To You", "Kilburn Towers", and "I Started A Joke". LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple & tan label pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

✨✧ LowrellLowrell ... LP
AVI, 1979. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Excellent solo work by Lowrell Simon – once a singer with Lost Generation, but opening up a whole new style of Chicago soul here on his own! The album's a tasty batch of smooth soul tracks with a midtempo club groove – not disco, but with the kind of large production and loping groove that you'd find in a good Barry White album – hitting all the right mellow funky moments at once! The prime example of this is the killer "Mellow Mellow Right On" – offered up here in two long parts that take up most of side two of the original album. Other nice ones include a version of Lowrell's "Overdose Of Love", plus the tracks "Out Of Breath", "You're Playing Dirty" and "Smooth & Wild". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kool & The GangLove & Understanding ... LP
Dee-Lite, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Amazing work from Kool & The Gang – from a period when they were pushing past their tight early funky sound, into a super-dope mix of electronics and spacey jamming that is still pretty darn revolutionary today! Although you might think the album would be a bit disco by the date, it's not – and instead has the group moving more towards a style of cosmic righteousness that was undoubtedly influenced by the early work (and success) of Earth, Wind, & Fire. The album has a few live cuts - including an amazing 8 minute long live version of "Summer Madness", with an extended keyboard solo that's just great! Other titles include "Cosmic Energy", "Do It Right Now", "Universal Sound", and a remake of "Hollywood Swinging". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a large name in marker on all sides & some surface wear on the front.)

✨✧ Fat Larry's BandLookin For Love ... LP
Fantasy/WMOT, 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A really great album – one of Larry's best – a smooth soulful batch of groovers, more Philly than funk, and handled to perfection with lots of jazzy touches on the instrumentation! The arrangements are really great – with nice parts where the vocals drop out and let piano, guitar, and keyboards take over – and the boys keep their harmonies from getting too silly on the best tracks, sticking to a smooth soul approach that really works. Titles include "Lookin For Love", "Here Comes The Sun", "How Good Is Love", "Hey Pancho It's Disco", and "Like To Get To Know You Better". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues BandOut Among 'Em ... LP
Roulette, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet set of 70s Latin Disco – less Afro-Cuban than you might expect, but a great illustration of the way that older Latin modes had filtered down to more mainstream dancefloors at the time! There's definitely still some Latin elements in the mix – but the set's also got Michael Zager arranging and producing, and giving the whole thing more of a disco focus overall – in ways that criss cross nicely throughout the record. Titles include a sweet clubby cover of Joe Cuba's "Bang Bang", a remake of Sly Stone's "Life & Death In G&A", and the titles "Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys", "Once You Get Started", and "Get Dancin".

✨✧ Isaac HayesChocolate Chip ... LP
HBS/ABC, 1975. Near Mint- 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".

Island, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
A classic disco stormer from Grace Jones – recorded at Sigma Sound with a real Philly groove, thanks to arrangements from John Monster Davis – and produced with a full, soaring sound from the legendary Tom Moulton! The set may well be Grace's true club classic from the late 70s – a record that works both on the quirky levels of her early rise to fame, and on the more soulful expectations mainstream clubgoers had at the time – a beautiful balance that owes plenty to the input from Davis and Moulton! Titles include "Do Or Die", "Pride", "Fame", "Below The Belt", and "Am I Ever Gonna Fall In Love In New York City". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Drums Music ShowSexy Banana EP ... LP
Mondo Groove (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The title, artist, and cover name are all a bit enigmatic – but take it from us, the whole thing definitely lives up to its promise! The set brings together some obscure tunes from that great moment when Italian club music was hitting a very unique vibe – not really disco, even though it was strongly flying the flag of that style overseas – but also different than some of the more house-heavy cuts to come! Drums Music Show use plenty of percussion, but also mix it with a warmer style too – sometimes sweeping strings, sometimes other elements – usually with a female singer over the top. Their titles include both vocal and instrumental versions of "Sexy Banana" and "Samedi Soir" – and the set also features versions of "Samedi Soir" by Patricia & Top Secret, and by Olga Melchionda.

✨✧ Samba SoulDo It ... LP
RCA, 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The second album from this Brazilian-tinged disco combo – not as great as the first one, but still with some nice moments. Many of the tracks are pop covers – like "Sometimes When We Touch", "I'm In You", or "Eyes On The Sparrow", which is probably the best of the three. The best cut, though, is "Black Coco", a nice groover with some heavy conga work, and a nice breakdown. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Carl CarltonCarl Carlton ... LP
20th Century, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An excellent album of smooth soul from Carl Carlton – a richly talented singer who began his career as a kid in the 60s, but who's working here in a sophisticated adult mode with production by Leon Haywood. The album kind of takes Haywood's best styles of the mid 70s and updates them to match Carlton's great voice. Haywood wrote all the best material on the album, and it's actually surprising that he didn't save some of the cuts for himself – especially when you consider that the record features the classic groover "She's A Bad Mama Jama", which was a pivotal dancefloor track in the post-disco years, plus the excellent stepper "This Feeling's Rated X-Tra". Other tracks include "I Think It's Gonna Be Alright", "Sexy Lady", "Don't You Wanna Make Love", and "Fighting In The Name Of Love". Great vocals, great production, and a perfect blend of all the right elements make the album a modern soul treat! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grace JonesNightclubbing ... LP
Island, 1981. Very Good+ ... $13.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Grace Jones – a record that has her shedding some of the disco excesses of earlier years, and moving into a great blend of sounds that really showcases the energy of the New York scene from which she sprang! The album was recorded in Nassau, with help from Sly Dunbar on drums, Robbie Shakespeare on bass, and Wally Badarou on keyboards – and most tunes have an edgier feel that makes Jones sound even darker than before. There's loads of great disco-not-disco moments – from the straight funk of "Pull Up To The Bumper" to the insane post-punk grooving of "Demolition Man" – to other tracks that include "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)", "Art Groupie", "Walking In The Rain", "Nightclubbing", and "Use Me".

✨✧ Webster LewisOn The Town ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Classic club from Webster Lewis – and much more of an all-out disco affair than some of his later work! The record introduces Lewis' all-encompassing style – as he writes, arranges, and produces the album at a level that easily matches that of Barry White – who would later emerge as a mentor for Lewis, introducing him as part of the later Love Unlimited Orchestra records. The group here is billed as "Webster Lewis & The Post-Pop Space-Rock Be-Bop Gospel Tabernacle Orchestra & Chorus" – a pretty good way to describe the soaringly full sound of the album – one that's built up from Webster's keyboards with lots of added strings and rhythms, plus occasional backing vocals from a female chorus. Most of the focus here is instrumental, though – filled with great tunes that include "On The Town", "Love Is The Way", "Do It With Style", "Song Of Joy", "Goodnight Baby Girl", "Since I've Been Gone", and "Saturday Night Steppin Out".

Cerrone's second album – a swirling mix of disco beats and strings that follows very clearly on the spirit of his landmark first one! Like that album, this one's got a title track that runs well over 15 minutes long – building in a slowly dancing way that says everything about European disco styles that one track could ever hope to do! Other tunes on the album are shorter and tighter – with soulful vocals dancing in and out, and some nice keyboard work that makes the tunes sparkle with a sweet electric groove. Titles include "Take Me", "Time For Love", and "Cerrone's Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

Strong mid 70s work from Jimmy – bouncing back with a tight little groover, the title cut of this one, which has a soaring soulful approach that's right up there with the best of mid 70s New York. Production is by Biddu – with a disco groove that's plenty pronounced – but Jimmy's vocals are still very much at the front of the mix, and plenty darn catchy throughout! Titles include the hit "I'll Go Where Your Music Takes Me", plus "I Want You So Much", "Now is The Time", "Whatever Happened To The Love We Knew", "Disco Fever", and "Your Love Keeps Haunting Me".

Titles include "Warp Factor II", "Love Star", "VM IV", and "It's Peaceful Out There" – plus the title track, which runs for all of side one! LP, Vinyl record album

Aware, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A wonderful album of southern soul from Loleatta Holloway! The record was her last in the mode – and it's a gem that should have made her as big as her later disco records. The record was produced by Floyd Smith, and it's got some of the most sophisticated production we've heard on a southern diva album from the 70s – with instrumentation that still boggles us with its brilliance. Case in point is the amazing cut "Cry To Me", which has these insane banks of "weeping" guitar that send chills down our spine! The cut was written by Sam Dees, who also penned some other fine material for the album – and titles include "I Know Where You're Coming From", "Just Be True To Me", "Something About The Way I Feel", and a cover of Ruby Andrews' "Casanova".

The tunes bounce along nicely with production from Al Perkins, and some nice bass work by Kevin McCord. The album includes the nicely snapping funky tune "Hold It" – plus "Pull Fancy Dance/Pull". "Burn It", "Your Love Is All I Need", "He Is My Friend", "Get Up", and "Show Me" – plus bonus track "Let's Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsGroove Machine ... LP
TK, 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A rock-solid groove machine from The JBs – an album that's a bit different than their earlier sides for People Records, yet still pretty wonderful overall! The approach is more club than funk – yet the grooves are still mostly live ensemble playing – kind of a ratcheted-up version of the JBs' style, and very similar to the groove that James Brown himself was hitting at the end of the 70s! Given the already-sharp sound of the group, you can bet that the music here is light years better than most other studio disco groups of the period – and although James Brown produced, most of the tracks are instrumental – save for one with vocals by Maxxi. Titles include "Rock", "Georgia Peach Disco", "Just Wanna Make You Dance", "Rock Disco #1", and "Rock Groove Machine". LP, Vinyl record album
