Die "Gleisdreieck" Vinyl Edition ist als Doppel-LP (12", 180g, Virgin Vinyl) mit 17 Titeln erhältlich. Dazu gibt es einen MP3 Download Voucher für 17 Titel plus 9 weiteren Bonustracks und das als exklusive und auf 500 Stück limitierte hhv.de Colored Vinyl Auflage in Orange.Joy Denalane hat deutschen Soul erfunden und damit deutschen Pop geprägt. Sie hat mit Freundeskreis und Max Herre gearbeitet und ihre ganz eigene Stimme gefunden. Ihr neues Album führt sie zurück nach Berlin, zurück ans „Gleisdreieck“, das sich plötzlich auch als Symbol lesen lässt: eine Gabelung ins Ungewisse, in die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft. “Ich habe mich gefragt: Was sind die Gedanken, die mich gerade wirklich umtreiben? Was habe ich zu sagen? Wer bin ich eigentlich?” Auf diesen Fragen gründen die Songs auf “Gleisdreieck”. Gemeinsam mit ihren Songwriter-Kollegen Maxim, Tua, Jasmin Shakeri, Alex Freund, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Martin Fliegenschmidt und Max Herre hat Joy Denalane für “Gleisdreieck” einige der prägendsten Erlebnisse ihrer jüngeren Vergangenheit aufgearbeitet. Der klassische Joy-Sound, mit seinen Wurzeln im Gospel, Afrobeat und 70s-Soul, wird auf “Gleisdreieck” ergänzt und stellenweise ersetzt von einem entwaffnend eleganten Future R&B. Die Produktion von KAHEDI (alias Samon Kawamura, Max Herre und Roberto Di Gioia), Tua, Alex Freund, Philipp Niessen, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Ghanaian Stallion, KitschKrieg, FLY und Ben Bazzazian ist unbedingt im Moment und schwebt doch über den Trends und Trendchen, die einem Woche für Woche in den Feed schwappen. Immer wieder tauchen auf dem Album auch Rap-Strophen auf, wie flüchtige Begegnungen in einer überfüllten Nacht. Der junge Berliner Chima Ede ist ebenso zu hören wie Deutschlands kommender Trap-King Rin, die talentierte Hamburgerin Eunique, Tua, Megaloh, Ahzumjot, Marteria. Sie alle ergänzen Joys Geschichte/n mit ihren persönlichen Perspektiven und verorten sie noch klarer im Hier und Jetzt.

“Lovin’ Mighty Fire” is Howard Williams’ third Japanese music compilation for the Ace Records house of labels - this time, for BGP International. Assembled in between his job as a record distributor and his monthly Japan Blues show for NTS radio, the first two have taken a look at the late 50s for a blast of Japanese rockabilly (“Nippon Rock’n’Roll” CDWIKD 313), then the 60s and 70s for a romp in Japanese surf music (“Nippon Guitars” CDWIKD 297). Following his retrospective of jazz singer Maki Asakawa for Honest Jon’s, this new outing searches for the soul music of Japan, from the early 70s to the early 80s. Japan has long been known as the final destination for many a collectible soul record. Yet, who suspected that some fine soul grooves were recorded for the domestic market, from ballads, to funk and disco? Strangely enough, some of the busiest writers and producers in this field came from a late 60s rock band, Happy End, but on listening to their collaborations, their rhythmic, soulful feel is immediately apparent.The bluesy funk of Lily; the soul-diva brilliance of Minako Yoshida – represented here in both slow-grind mode and epic disco; the maverick genius of Haruomi Hosono; the lively songstress Yasuko Agawa; and the sultry steaminess of Mari Natsuki, and more. This album finally plants a Japanese flag firmly on the global map of soul.

Part 1&2. polish your headspin hat, and hear all the components of the band, horns, keyboards, and last but not least a big arse drum break!! Beware you b-boys out there!

Impossible to find Spiritual Jazz / Funk / Groove / Psych rarity from France, 1973. Rupture was born when famous French songwriter Boris Bergman (France Gall, Dalida, etc) decided to record a conceptual album about the history of Israel. He approached ace drummer and singer Sylvain Krief (Airto Fogo, Michel Fugain, Aznavour, Clark Terry, Bud Powell, etc) and soon, other musicians joined: Jean-François Jenny-Clark (Don Cherry, Steve Lacy, etc) on bass, Georges Locatelli (Total Issue) on guitar, Jean-Pierre Mas (piano, organ, guitar, vocals…) In resume, Rupture was a kind of super-group featuring some of the best musicians from the Euro jazz / progressive / fusion scene. It also included collaborations by Michel Fugain and Nicole Croisille. The album was recorded over a period of three months and the result was released as a very limited private pressing with help from the Futura label. Arranged by Sylvain Krief and Jean-Pierre Mas, “Israel Suite” included a side-long suite on side A and shorter songs on Side B.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff release the follow up album to their critically acclaimed “Dubplates from Jakarta #5” release. Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff have a special bond. They met one year ago at a local R&B contest in Louisville. Dr. Dundiff was the DJ of the night and Otis Junior happened to be the only contestant he had never heard of. He took the stage just playing piano and singing and Dr. Dundiff was so blown away that they ended up in the studio together shortly after. They released their debut EP “1moment2another” on Jakarta Records only very few months after they had first met in early 2016. And it's was widely appreciated with heavy daytime rotation on french gate keeper radio station Nova, many appreciating blog as well as a feature on Radio Nova's “le grand Mix 2016” compilation. Despite the fact they have not been working together for a long time they managed to create their very own and unique take on hip hop production influenced soul music. While Otis comes from a classic soul background, Dundiff's previous release were classic underground leftfield hip hop records that even had him handle mic duties. “Consider each of us as one hemisphere, the world we create together is new, different, and unexpected.” is how Otis Junior summarizes their approach of bringing their two worlds together musically. Dundiff's organic yet hard hitting productions compliment Otis Junior soulful timbre perfectly while they were able to perfect their style even further comparing their debut EP to their debut album “Hemispheres”. Dundiff sums this development up: “Otis and I have this mutual agreement that we want to continue pushing our music in different directions. Hemispheres is a perfect embodiment of that approach."

With the support of his faithful musicians, Larry's success was only hindered by lack of airplay and promotion, but his talent shines through.This is the story of Larry Dixon, his label LAD Productions, Inc., and his friends and family throughout four decades of music in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods.Jerome Derradji is proud to reactivate Past Due Records - the boogie funk division of Still Music to release this fantastic archive – what many consider to be the Holy Grail - of Chicago Funk, Boogie and Soul.

The Delfonics is the quintessential sweet-soul group. Hailing from Philadelphia, the crew formed in the mid-'60s, with the definitive original lineup as leadvocalist and songwriter William Hart, his brother Wilbert Hart, and mutual high-school friend Randy Cain (later replaced by Major Harris). With the help ofproducer/arranger Thom Bell—and with William's signature falsetto—the Delfonics set the tone for all other sweet-soul groups that would follow.Los Angeles producer/composer Adrian Younge envisioned a modern-day Delfonics album and pitched the idea to William Hart, who hopped a plane fromPhilly to L.A. and began work on a new album. Younge helped to reshape the Delfonics by bringing on board two excellent young vocalists, Loren Odenand Saudia Mills—as well as Om'Mas Keith on the single "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)"—to work alongside William.From the very beginning, it was Younge's intention to create an old-school Delfonics vibe but offer a very hip-hop-informed perspective. There aredistinguishing musical elements that Delfonics fans will recognize, like the electric sitar guitar, the French horn, string arrangements, and the tympani. Younge now makes this breath-taking musical outing available once again on his own Linear Labs imprint.

Here's a revamped reissue of an extremely rare Italian library album from 1970. Arawak is one of the many pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used as a composer of film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. This album stayed under the radar until hip-hop performer Quasimoto (an alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled 'Accade A Harlem' for the 'Suono Libero' series. The laid-back grooves and dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make for a truly unique listening experience.

Virginia-born singer/songwriter Nicole Wray has everything you’d want in a singer: an infectious Jackson-5-family-member flare, a range like Aretha’s, and a church upbringing that’s brought a pure, healing texture to her voice. But the struggle she’s been through has made her more than a singer. Nicole Wray is an artist. To know her soul, you have to go back to the beginning. Growing up in Portsmouth was tough at times for Nicole. However, at the age of fifteen, life opened up quickly when Missy Elliot paid a visit to Nicole’s family home to audition her on the spot. Missy was there on the rumored strength and quality of her voice. Instantly blowing her away, she signed and left with Missy that night. Two years later, at age 17, she had a hit gold single off a solid debut album (“Make It Hot”). Suddenly she was part of a team that included late ‘90s R&B and rap royalty: Missy, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Playa, Timbaland and Magoo. She made it, and fast. However, as rapidly as she achieved success, Nicole then found herself needing to re-make it. By late 2001, her time with Missy and company had run its course. They amicably parted ways and Nicole, once on top of the R&B world, was unsure of what was next. It was a very low, but important, point in her life. While neck-deep in this struggle, Damon Dash and Roc-A-Fella Records called. They signed an album deal and by 2004, in what was starting to be a pattern, just as things were looking up Roc-A-Fella suddenly (famously) split. Once again, industry factors beyond her control took charge. Like a recurring dream, Nicole found herself in a familiar situation. Having just been in the spotlight, and then again back living the “real life.” In 2013, Nicole paired up with London vocalist Terri Walker and released the album “Lady”. Terri parted ways with the group to pursue her own projects shortly after the album’s release–despite rave reviews and upcoming travel dates. Fast forward to now–the transformation from singer-for-hire to pure artist is evident in this new full-length solo release, “Queen Alone”. The record was written and recorded in 10 days at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios, in Queens NY with Leon Michels and Tom Brenneck handling production. Today, after stutter-stepping in and out of the industry, there is a new soul and substance to her songs–all of it from her life. “They Don't Hang Around", tells the story of her post Roc-a-Fella days, “Guilty", is about her brother’s incarceration, “Make Me Over" tells the relatable story of being broke with expensive taste, and ‘Let It Go”, a perfect way to end the record, is about the simple act of letting go and moving on. Almost echoing her new record, Nicole says, “You have to go through something for it to be real.” She has been living with one foot in fame and the other in real life. The result is clear: she’s feeling something real in her music again. And it’s hard for us as listeners not to follow suit.

Hear the document of one man’s passion crossing over into obsession. Chicago radio disc jockey and soul archivist Bob Abrahamian was deeply devoted to celebrating and documenting unknown Chicagoland group harmony music. Upon his untimely passing in 2014, he left behind hundreds of radio programs and a daunting collection of 35,000 carefully-selected 45s. Our collection borrows its title from Abrahamian’s long-running and acclaimed WHPK radio show, and it spins a tale that’s cautionary, inspiring, and set to the sounds of the impossible-to-find tracks that made Bob Abrahamian’s on-air playlist and animated the radio programs that were his life’s work. Collected here are 12 artists (16 on the CD) featured on Sitting In The Park, in their own words and through the lens of our friend Bob.A decade into its limitless ambitions, Numero’s flagship Eccentric Soul series is effectively remapping the American soul diaspora. Each compilation explores, in exacting detail, another US city’s smallest time hooks and would-be world beaters tossed into the glutted big-hole record sea of the 1960s and ’70s. In Eccentric Soul’s alternate universe are motley and mishandled Motowns beyond number, and the unforgettable records that could have, and should have, and never did. Find their stories here, retold for the first time.

Genre:Organic Grooves
For decades the mysterious Hiroshi & Claudia LP has been an elusive jewel amongst the curious world of Australian private press LPs. With nothing more than cryptic broken-English album sleeve notes to reference, the mythical Six To Six LP is a bewildering and intriguing jazz oddity. With prices of the rare original record hitting three figures, collectors began demanding to know who was ‘Hiroshi’, who was ‘Claudia’ and why did a group of unknown Japanese musicians record an album in Australia in the late 1970s only to issue it in micro-quantities, then seemingly disappear back into obscurity. For years no trace of whom they were nor any clue as to the origins of their peculiar yet entrancing music had surfaced. Until now….Welcome to the brainchild of Gilles Germain and Carmen Fabro, a French/Italian husband and wife team of restaurateurs and film producers operating in Sydney during the 1970s. Establishing the custom record label ‘Atom’, the duo released a handful of highly obscure vanity jazz LPs and promotional horse racing 45s. (Yes it’s all very strange…) The highlight undoubtedly being the album Six To Six, a session recorded in Sydney in 1979 by a group of touring Japanese jazz musicians led by guitarist Hiroshi Yasukawa, and a forgotten and still undocumented Mauritian cabaret singer performing under the alias ‘Claudia’. Sitting somewhere between spacey Balearic disco, haunting soul and hectic funk reminiscent of electric Miles Davis, the Six To Six LP is a curious beast to say the least. Released specially for Record Store Day 2017 Northside Records and The Roundtable present a limited edition exact reissue of this legendary Australian rare groove LP.

In this compilation, I have tried to include some of the most interesting cuts I have collected over the years. Tracks like the entirely electronic "Nitrogen" from Alberto Baldan Bembo's "Sound Orchestra" LP on Star Track Records, featuring a wild evolving bassline leading us through frantic rhythmic experimentations. "In the Space", by French born composer Albert Verrecchia and taken from Italian poliziesco drama 'Il Tempo Degli Assasini' (Season for Assasins), tells the tale of wistful longing, played out with serenity on strings and keys, but unexpected interruption from its stop-start arrangement brings an unforeseen tension into the mix... And how could I not include the wonderfully charming "Screw Driver" by Fabio Fabor, from his collaborative album "Superman" with a young Antonio Arena. Featuring an orchestra of beautifully programmed ARP and Oberheim sonorities alongside the Commodore 64 programmed graphical artwork by Antonio Arena himself.

Containing some of the best songs he's ever written, "Southern Nights" is Allen Toussaint's 1975 "swing for the fences" attempt at an all out masterpiece. Somewhat of a concept album, with reoccurring instrumental themes usually based on the title track popping up between songs, this album spawned at least two hits for other artists. The title track (minus the Lennonesque rotary speaker vocal effect) was a giant hit for Glen Campbell, and "What Do You Want The Girl To Do?" was one of several singles on Boz Skaggs' 1976 gazillion seller "Silk Degrees" and also recorded with some success by Bonnie Raitt. On rust colored vinyl.

Als The Roots einen seiner Songs unter dem Titel "The Seed (2.0)" neu aufnahmen und den USamerikanischenGitarristen und Soul-Sänger dafür ans Mikro baten, feierte Cody Chesnutt seinenkommerziellen Durchbruch. Dabei ist der Mann aus Atlanta bereits seit 1992 musikalisch aktiv. Wer esverpasst hat: Chesnutts Debüt "The Headphone Masterpiece" (2002), von dem auch das "The Seed"-Originalstammte, ist mit einer Mischung aus Marvin Gaye, D’Angelo, Prince, Portishead, Al Green, Sly Stone, ModestMouse und Common einerseits und Neo Soul, Funk, Rock, Blues und Hip-Hop andererseits ein Meisterwerk.Erstaunlicherweise zog sich Chesnutt nach seinem Erstling zehn Jahre ins Privatleben zurück und besannsich aufs Leben, bevor er 2012 das Album "Landing On A Hundred" herausbrachte, das ebenfalls von derKritik gefeiert wurde und Chesnutt viel Aufmerksamkeit einbrachte. Zum Glück hat es bis zur Veröffentlichungdes dritten Albums nur noch fünf Jahre gedauert - das lässt für die Zukunft hoffen, zumal "My Love DivineDegree" gespickt voll ist mit großartigen Songs. Produziert wurde das Werk von Anthony "The Twilight Tone"Khan, der auch schon für Kanye West, Common, John Legend und Pusha T. tätig war.

Als der in New Orleans ansässige Musiker, Sänger, Songwriter und Gitarrist Benjamin Booker nach derVeröffentlichung seines selbstbetitelten Debütalbums (2014) sowie damit einhergehenden Promoterminenund Konzerten Anfang 2016 zur Ruhe kam, war er völlig erschöpft. An ein neues Werk war so nicht zudenken. Eines Morgens wachte er auf und teilte seinem Manager wild entschlossen mit, er würde eineAuszeit in Mexiko nehmen. "Do you speak Spanish", fragte dieser, was Booker mit den Worten "That's whyI'm going" verneinte. Am Tag darauf saß Booker im Flieger nach Mexiko. Dort, in der Fremde, fand erAbstand zu seiner US-amerikanischen Herkunft und Kultur. Und damit kam auch die Inspiration für neueSongs. Diese erstrahlen in wahrlich großem Gewand und bewegen sich in den Grenzgebieten von Soul,Blues, Rock und Garage Rock. Die Stücke sind zwar nicht mehr so roh wie die des Debüts, haben abernichts an Intensität und Emotionalität verloren. Produziert wurde das Album von Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby),gemixt von Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes). Als Gastsängerin veredelt Mavis Staples den Titeltrack. Dabeistellt sie eine Frage, die für die USA von heute zentral sind: "Am I going to be a witness? And in today’sworld, is that enough?"

Finally, repressed!In 1976, Aura quickly rose to the top as Hawaii’s preeminent funk band when it secured the most coveted gig in Honolulu’s nightclub scene: a residency at The Point After. Consisting of eight siblings from the Mendoza family of Waipahu, Aura became the first local band ever to play the venue. They kept the gig for ten years. When they got into the studio in 1979, however, the band embraced ideas outside of their usual live act in the spirit of collaboration, absorbing new ideas from drummer Mike Kennedy, saxophonist Bill Popaka, and producer Gary Shimabukuro. The resulting eponymous album (scheduled for reissue on Aloha Got Soul in late 2016) is a potent blend of jazz and funk highlighted by their signature sibling sound: an unstoppable horn section and two sisters as lead vocalists. “Magic Lover” showcases what Aura can bring to the dance floor with its incredibly tight brass, solid groove, and dirty bass line—elevated by the voices of Beverly and Christine Mendoza. But a funk group is only as good as their ballads, and “Let Go, It’s Over” is proof they’ve got just as much talent when the tempo slows down.

Following up on the success of Lady Wray’s solo debut album Queen Alone, we areproud to give you another 45 offering, this time showing another side of Nicole.Known worldwide for her early career as a Hip Hop / R&B singer, then more recentlyfor her more matured Soul inspired writing, the A side of this one “Underneath MyFeet” shows just how hard it is to put Lady Wray in a box. If you haven’t seen her liveshow, you may have no idea that she has a healthy bad ass Rock and Roll side to her,commanding crowds with a raucousness that likens Betty Davis. Underneath My Feetis a tough blend of glam rock drums and guitar stabs that Nicole takes to like a fish towater. A self proclaimed voodoo woman, putting a spell on the listener, warning all ofher unbridled power.The B side is the heart wrenching Guilty, a song Wray wrote to cope with theincarceration of her brother. One listen and it is impossible to doubt the sincerity,again showing Cole’s songwriting prowess with imagery of no one to cheers with, andnot wanting to experience the comforts of home knowing her brother was locked up ina cell. A solid 2 sider showing a different side of Lady Wray than she is typically knownfor all wrapped up in a beautiful picture sleeve cover.

Before he was Nigeria's self-proclaimed Mr Lover Boy, Felix Lebarty was an upcoming musician in the country's Edo-Delta region. His big brother, Aigbe, was a legendary Highlife bandleader, but Felix paid his dues playing guitar with Thony Shorby Nwenyi and the Collection of Stars, along with fellow 'star' Mighty Flames bassist, Willy Nfor. Perversely, Girls For Sale was released after Lover Boy, the slick disco album that cemented his place in Nigerian music history. It is a collection of tracks Lebarty made early in his career, when his music was rawer and his pickup lines less sophisticated and less practised. In 'Come True', Lebarty actually admits to a girl that he hasn't got any money. He begs a girl to love him in 'Love Me Kiss Me' and pleads with a rival to give him a break in 'Don't Take My Girl'. He even takes a dig at Aigbe, his more successful sibling, in 'Mr Big Brother'. It's hardly what you'd expect from the disco god behind Lover Boy, who went on to have 19 children with 7 different women. To me, that's what makes Girls For Sale worth checking out. It's gritty, lo-fi and melodic, like The Apostles with a subtle a nod towards the Jackson Five, sung with endearing insecurity. What's not to like about that? - Peter Moore

Oronzo De Filippi (aka Rino De Filippi, Awake, Rigesti), component of Braen’s Machine, is one of the most enigmatic figures of the library music scene. Although it is reductive and simplistic to frame him in an exclusive genre within an already varied landscape. The master’s versatility, moves through the mesh of psychedelia, avant-garde, jingle, lullabies and more orthodox library music. Making use of disparate instruments in a symbiosis between popular culture that leaves you enchanted.Listen the crescendo of Tema Titoli or delicate Refrain Triste and its Spanish-guitar and piano or the suspense of Bosco Incantato; the psychedelic and imaginative Magia or the masterpiece Castello Incantato, with its powerfull electric bass, lysergic guitar, echoes, reverb and tenuous and sporadic rhythmic inserts of military marching drums (!).Among the best songs are, with no doubt, Melodia Drammatica, an attacking piece, characterized by a fast and enveloping psych groove; Bambola Triste, that recalls the soundtrack of a spaghetti western film, and, finally, Mercato Arabo, an hypnotic and refined tribal jewel, in which, vocalized voice and organ alternate themselves to draw oriental sound architectures. Seems like Liars 'Drums Not Dead' but composed thirty years before.

I felt at that time that I was at the bottom of the pit and I wanted to rise up out of that mess because my wife made me feel that I was a nobody. I was not good enough for her - nobody wants you when you are down and out. She felt that she were on the top and I was on the bottom. This song was a message at that time."

The Delfonics is the quintessential sweet-soul group. Hailing from Philadelphia, the crew formed in the mid-'60s, with the definitive original lineup as leadvocalist and songwriter William Hart, his brother Wilbert Hart, and mutual high-school friend Randy Cain (later replaced by Major Harris). With the help ofproducer/arranger Thom Bell—and with William's signature falsetto—the Delfonics set the tone for all other sweet-soul groups that would follow.Los Angeles producer/composer Adrian Younge envisioned a modern-day Delfonics album and pitched the idea to William Hart, who hopped a plane fromPhilly to L.A. and began work on a new album. Younge helped to reshape the Delfonics by bringing on board two excellent young vocalists, Loren Odenand Saudia Mills—as well as Om'Mas Keith on the single "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)"—to work alongside William.From the very beginning, it was Younge's intention to create an old-school Delfonics vibe but offer a very hip-hop-informed perspective. There aredistinguishing musical elements that Delfonics fans will recognize, like the electric sitar guitar, the French horn, string arrangements, and the tympani. Now the instrumentals are finally available.

After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by Washington DC soul/gospel outfit Enlightment is finally receiving a proper release. Founded by ordained bishop Larry H. Jordan and his brother-in-law Frank Tinsley in the early 1980s, Enlightment was among the first groups to fuse modern R&B production with gospel themes. Unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album “Faith Is The Key” was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. Only a handful of “Faith Is the Key” LPs ever made it into the public’s hands.As a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. It was re-discovered around the year 2000, when copies started selling online for over $2000. While disappointed in the record’s lack of immediate impact, the group’s founders are not surprised by its recent revival. “It’s just good music with a spiritual message, that’s why it stood the test of time,” says Tinsley. “We made sure we had very crystal clear production,” adds Jordan. Thanks to an official vinyl re-release via Nature Sounds with worldwide distribution, listeners can now experience that innovation first-hand.

Comprised out of sixteen carefully selected tracks and covering a six-year period (1970-1976) “Finest” may be the best-assembled Funkadelic collection from this period yet, as both renowned band standards share space with several oft-overlooked tracks. The early tracks "I Got a Thing" and "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You" show the band-members still honing their rich 'n' funky sound, before they hit their stride with selections from the classic “Maggot Brain” album. As a result, you get a healthy sampling of some of the best funk the '70s had to offer, including "Hit It and Quit It," "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks," "Loose Booty," "Cosmic Slop," "Red Hot Mama," and "Get Off Your Ass and Jam." “Finest” is an exceptional sampler for those discovering the wild and wacky universe of Funkadelic. Out of print since 1997 and transferred from the original analogue master tapes, now finally back available as a deluxe Double-LP set with some of the craziest psychedelic crumb-style artwork you’ll ever see. The double LP set comes with OBI-strip and will be limited to 1000 copies.

Here's a revamped reissue of an extremely rare Italian library album from 1970. Arawak is one of the many pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used as a composer of film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. This album stayed under the radar until hip-hop performer Quasimoto (an alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled 'Accade A Harlem' for the 'Suono Libero' series. The laid-back grooves and dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make for a truly unique listening experience.

Franco Chiari, born in 1927 in Naples, was an eclectic artist who is considered a bit of a wildcard of keyboard instruments: he played the piano, accordion, synthesizer, vibraphone and marimba in both jazz and symphony. For three consecutive years (1957/58/59) he won the National Jazz referendum, was vibraphonist in the national TV Orchestra and participated in numerous important broadcasts. He received many awards in his career, and numerous are the artists who have wanted to play live alongside him, including Lionel Hampton, Stéphane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, Piero Piccioni, Armando Trovajoli, Lelio Luttazzi, and more. In this album released in 1973, the most groovy in his career, and now the most wanted from collectors, he rearranges the compositions of Mario Bertolazzi electronically with the use of synthesizer on rhythms ranging from latin beats to funk. Numbered limited edition with digital downloads included and an amazing cover with splashes of paint, making each copy unique and unrepeatable.

Way ahead of their time, Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza were an experimental collective fully based on improvised music. It was the only European group exclusively made of composers, instead of simple performers. The Group tried to break the schemes by making use of new instruments and electronic effects, reinventing new timbres, using the voice in an unconventional way. They were also known for the presence of Ennio Morricone on trumpet who, at the same time (1966), was also working as a soundtrack composer for Sergio Leone’s western movies!Up until now all the works have been the fruit of a composer and that this «open» form was in reality still «closed» to a still greater opening. It was the presence in Rome of one of its principal members, the composer Larry Austin, that encouraged the formation of the IMPROVISATION GROUP OF THE NUOVA CONSONANZA, which is the only group in Europe formed exclusively of Composers.The members of this group intercalate the instruments into various formations, from a minimum of two instruments, to a total formation. The essential element of the group is a sense of good understanding, which is the base for finding a fertile field first for discussion and then for performance.This is the first time in the history of western music that more than one composer get together playing various instruments, where the result is no longer the result o f an individual effort but of a joint effort. For all this, it is clear that the GROUP makes an effort to surmount the limits of this system, and despite these limits, in some cases, gives glimpses of new horizons, of a new system, with the use of new instruments. The continual invention of timbres, and also the use of some electronic effects, for example the use of voices as impulse-phonemons, puts the group in a position of actuality, where contemporary composers of subjective vision have yet to arrive.All the pieces in this collection are absolutely «improvised» and are not the result of «editing». The most interesting thing is that the actual duration of the piece for the listener is the same as that taken for its production, that is an «effort» of few minutes. The art of improvisation is fascinating and this way of «composing together» results in an internal and external tension of great sensitivity, and I think that this is the only magic still possible in the music of to-day, no longer written, and completely deprived of all myth in front of that personage once called Author.

Among all the aliases used by the great Piero Umiliani, M. Zalla is perhaps his richest and surprisingly multifarious. “Suspense” perfectly anticipates what you will hear in its seventeen songs: tension, gloomy atmospheres, mystery and, needless to say, suspense elements that convey anxiety and distress. Thanks to the clever use of Moog and keyboards, c ombined with magnificent orchestral arrangements, the tracks rapidly flow one after another in a cre scendo that leaves you breathless.Among all the aliases used by the great Piero Umiliani, M. Zalla is perhaps his most rich and surprisingly multifarious: mainly used to produce experimental records that had little commercial appeal, this ‘nom de plume’ (along with Moggi) is tied to memorable episodes of his career, releases such as “Problemi d’oggi” (literally “Today’s Problems”), “Mondo inquieto” (i.e. “An Unsettling World”), and also “Suspense”, now reissued by Schema Records.And if titles such as those mentioned above may somehow disguise the musical content (electronic music, by the way), “Suspense” perfectly anticipates what you will hear in its seventeen songs. A full-black front cover, the title written with yellow coloured typeface (it couldn’t be any different) for an album that promises tension, gloomy atmospheres, mystery and, needless to say, suspense elements that convey anxiety and distress. Thanks to the clever use of Moog and keyboards, combined with magnificent orchestral arrangements, the tracks rapidly flow one after another in a crescendo that leaves you breathless, to cite the title of one of the best tracks.And, speaking about the titles of the tracks, what better way to introduce this reissue to the public other than quoting “Suspense notturna”, “Paura sul fondo”, “Killer”, “Inquieto”, “Suspense angosciosa”, “Evasione notturna” and my favourite one, “Suspense atomica”. A treat for your ears, and another fundamental piece to reconstruct the story of a Master of Italian music. Lean back in your chair and turn off the light...

Genre:Organic Grooves
Followers of soul music might have a pang of recognition on reading the name Frierson. That was the surname of Wendy Rene, whose work was collected into the 2012 LITA anthology "After Laughter Comes Tears", and indeed, Johnnie Frierson is Wendy's brother – a fellow member of her mid-'60s Stax four-piece The Drapels. "But Have You Been Good To Yourself" will come as a surprise to anyone expecting more of the beat-driven R 'n' B Johnnie and his sibling produced – including that compilation's much-sampled title track. A mix of spoken word and gospel songs laid down direct to cassette, these ultra-rare home recordings draw from Johnnie's religious upbringing and his history in the music business, which was interrupted in 1970 when he was sent to fight in Vietnam. Crate digger Jameson Sweiger found Have You Been Good To Yourself and a companion album, Real Education, released under the name Khafele Ojore Ajanaku in a Memphis thrift store, but it was noticeably Frierson's work. They hadn't made it far – they would originally have been sold at corner stores and music festivals in the Memphis area, where Frierson continued to perform and host a gospel radio show, all the while working as a mechanic, laborer and teacher.The seven songs on Have You Been Good To Yourself are overtly religious; some, such as “Out Here On Your Word,” are strident and faithful; others, like the self-questioning “Have You Been Good To Yourself,” are more meditative. They reflect the difficult situation that Frierson was in when recording, shell-shocked from his time in the military and grieving the untimely death of his son. "He was really trying to find his way," remembers Frierson's daughter Keesha in Andria Lisle's liner notes. "And writing and making music were a way out for him."The album is now remastered and released professionally for the first time, the message spread by Frierson – who passed away in 2010 – remains undimmed.

It’s the crate digger’s dream or nightmare. The modern day musical archae- ologist is always in search of that elusive piece of a musical puzzle. Dusting off a slice of unknown vinyl or a mystery tape in a battered box might just open up another chapter of discovery that illuminates the art of the people. Enter 180 Proof’s Amir Abdullah who, since 2010, has been getting dusty digits sifting through the master tapes in the Strata studio in Detroit. It’s there that he discovered and was blown away the voice and vibe of TJ.“I came across the TJ demo tapes back in 2012 when I secured the exclusive license to the whole Strata Records catalog,” explains Amir who plans an imminent release of the four tracks on 10” vinyl in conjunction with BBE Records. “My first response to hearing the demo was WOW! Frankly, the sound quality was not good but the soul and passion of the music was unbelievable. I immediately thought about a young Shuggie Otis when hearing the songs.”As with the rediscovery of Shuggie Otis’ ‘Inspiration Information’, by the likes of Gilles Peterson back in the 90’s, there are always questions to be asked. With Shuggie Otis there was lineage plus the image of a hip young guy with a big ‘Fro and acoustic guitar. Two decades on he’d simply dropped off the radar. What happened? With TJ there’s only the tape and says Amir, “There was no info on the master just the name TJ. I don’t know when the TJ was recorded at all. The strata catalog is from 73-75 and it’s one of many record- ings that were recorded but never released. I sat on the music for three years because I couldn’t afford to clean it up and re-master it properly until now.““As the Strata curator, I felt that this recording def fits in with what the Strata catalog is about. The soul and passion of the lyrics are heartfelt. As you can hear, most of the songs are about love. The raw form of just him, a guitar with vocal layers is so rough but it def represents the grittiness of the sound of Strata. I think the TJ represents what the Strata mottos were about: ‘The Sound of Detroit’ and ‘All Musics For All Peoples’. What makes me want to release this in its raw and rough form is that the genius of this recording cannot be denied. I hope that TJ somehow hears that the recording is out. I would love to give full credit to him and the musicians.”In 2016 Amir Abdullah and 180 Proof Records continue to dig deeper. Tune in and join in on the search for TJ.

Two more sides of rare, sun-soaked Miami Soul dug from the vaults of the TK Disco, CAT Records family.Willie "Little Beaver" Hale was on of CAT Records most enduring artists, releasing no less than 4 LP's and at least 12 45's for the label during the early to late 1970's as well as writing, performing and appearing on numerous other artists projects (including Betty Wright's super-hit "Clean up woman"). This particular 45 "One Of These Fools Have Got To Go / Concrete Jungle" features all the hallmarks of Hale's wondrous, soulful style. Laid back sweet Funk is the order of the day here, beautiful rare-groove leaning cuts that have somehow soaked up a good dose of that Hialeah sunshine. A tough record to track down, this 45 has long been the preserve of the rare record underground. Copies can change hands for collectors prices regularly often making the record hard to obtain. This fully legit re-issue makes the beautiful sounds of Little Beaver available again for all to enjoy. Re-released with all original label artwork intact, on dinked 45 as per the original 1977 release and with the full cooperation of TK Disco / CAT Records, Miami, Florida.

Genre:Organic Grooves
The renowned Get On Down label pays reverent tribute to this classic by pressing it on 150 gram vinyl, in a 70s style Stoughton jacket. There are funk bands. And then there are The JB’s. In the early 1970s, James Brown’s production stable was quite simply overflowing with soul. Beyond his own genre-bursting music – which brought funk and R&B to new stratospheres with each platter he released – he began to curate his own label, People Records, to explore and expose the lesser-known talent in his own groups and musical universe. After a mysterious, psychedelic album by a group calling themselves The Grodeck Whipperjenny in 1970, The Godfather Of Soul released a slew of 7-inch singles for the next several years on People. In doing so, he firmly established the label as the world’s premier outlet for super-funk, with artists including James Brown himself, Lyn Collins, Hank Ballard and Fred Wesley. In 1972, the next album on People was an easy choice: The JB’s and their ridiculously funky full-length debut, Food For Thought. Made up of JB sidemen including bandleader Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, John “Jabo” Starks, St. Clair Pinckney, Fred Thomas and Bobby Byrd, the group was the definition of a powerhouse. As proof, look no further than the fact that the ten songs on this platter have been sampled by an almost uncountable list of producers over the past 40-plus years, and grooved to by hundreds of thousands. From “Pass The Peas” and “Gimme Some More” to the sonic attack of “The Grunt” [whichalso contained work from William “Bootsy” Collins and his brother Catfish, who had recently defected to join Parliament-Funkadelic] Food For Thought remains one of the funkiest albums ever made.
