This has not been easy, after much determination we are able to release this incredible album recorded back in 1969. Recorded at Paramount Studios and first released on an independent label Mothers Records & The Snarf Company, it was arranged and produced by soul legend H.B. Barnum who saved the master tapes and after an extensive search made them available to us. The quality is amazing, and on our 180g vinyl we have the ultimate version. Spanky Wilson is a soul funk and jazz singer from Philadelphia. “Doin’ It” has become one of her most sought after albums in its own right, and for the breaks sampled and used by artists including LTJ Bukem, Aldo Vanucci, Monosurround, Lionrock, Paradox, Ursula 1000, Aim, Bahama Soul Club, Jungle Brothers featuring Black Eyed Peas and Valis. Originals have exchanged hands for £200 a copy.

Gospel Disco time Again!!!! After the sucess of "The Power of You're Love" we deceded to pull out a couple more of our gospel disco dancefloor favorites. Elbernita "Twinkie" Clark-Terrell ( who was in the the Clark Sisters before going solo) Recorded this beast for the LP Ye Shall Receive Power in 1980-81 for Armen Boladian's Sound Of Gospel Records out of Detroit (A Sub of the mighty Westbound Records). Both tracks featured on the LP only so desperatly need some 45 action. I'm not going to try and sell you this one with tales of its history all you need to do is drop the needle (or press the little play icon)..... Straight up monster dancefloor destructor.

With their first two Daptone albums – Get an Understanding, and as featured singers on Como Now – The Como Mamas established themselves as three of the strongest voices in gospel music today. In December of 2015, they cemented that reputation by taking their first trip from their home in Como, MS up to Harlem, NY to crush the Apollo Theater as part of the Daptone Super Soul Revue. Taking full advantage of their presence in town, the Daptone crew brought Ester Mae Wilbourn, Della Daniels, and Angelia Taylor into the House of Soul the week after the show to join forces for the first time with the musicians and studio that has defined their label’s sound. Jimmy Hill, Thomas Brenneck, Homer Steinweiss, and Bosco Mann, all stalwarts of the Daptone stable, came together as “The Glorifiers Band,” to put down a churning musical foundation for these amazing singers. The results are some of the heaviest tracks that Daptone has cut to date. If you don’t like raw, soulful gospel music, you’re really gonna hate this one. Move Upstairs is a real mother!

"At Last" war das Debütalbum der nigerianischen College-Band Grotto. Es erschien im Jahr 1977 undfusionierte auf mitreißende und eigenwillige Weise Rock mit Funk und Afrobeat. Ursprünglich formierte sichGrotto aus 15-, 16-jährigen Schülern des St. Gregory College in Lagos. Ausgehend von Jimi Hendrix undCarlos Santana begannen die Jungs in ihren Anfangstagen damit, die zu jener Zeit in Nigeriavorherrschenden Sounds zu einem psychedelischen und schwergewichtigen Fusion-Monster zuamalgamieren. Da das College instrumententechnisch gut ausgestattet war und zudem das künstlerischeBestreben seiner Schüler förderte, fand Grotto beste Bedingungen zum Üben vor. Im Gegensatz zu vielenanderen nigerianischen Acts, die als Studiobands tätig waren, tingelte Grotto nach Beendigung der Schulzeitdurchs Land und bespielte sämtliche Hotspots Nigerias, teils mit prominenten Kollegen wie Fela Kuti, TeeMac, Sonny Okosun und Segun Bucknor. Derart eingespielt präsentierte Grotto Songs aus einem Guss. Unddas hört man "At Last" auch an. Für dessen Wiederveröffentlichung als CD und LP wurde das Album von SeeWhy Audio restauriert und von The Carverey remastered. Abgerundet wird die Nachpressung durch rareFotos und Interviews mit dem Leadgitarristen Soga Benson sowie dem Produzenten Odion Iruoje.

Running a record label offers adiversified and challenging field of activity. This is particularly true when speaking of tiny independent re-issue labels where one, two or three guys have to take care of everything. Tracking down musicians, collecting their stories, writing the liner notes, creating the cover artwork, mastering the songs, promoting the release, communicating with pressing plants and distributors, and so on. Most of the tasks mean fun with the exception of one thing which nobody here at Tramp is keen on doing: writing the sales notes.Far be it from us to praise our release to the skies. Naturally, we are pretty much convinced of the sheer quality of each song, otherwise we would not have invested so much time and efforts into completing those compilation albums. One thing which surprises us is that despite thousands of Rare Groove compilations on the market neither of the songs to be found here has been compiled elsewhere yet. A fact that not only fills us with pride but also determines our claim for the future. As for now we have done our homework and it is time to let the music speak so that the Gunn High School Jazz Reunion, Keither Florence, Robert Cote, Plas Johnson, Charlie Chisholm Boss-tet, and all the others get the recognition they so richly deserve for their talent and work.When Tramp opened its doors in the early 2000s it was just for the fun of it. A business plan did not exist and nobody involved with the label had studied anything music related. It was just a bunch of crazy record collectors and music lovers with a simple idea: to share their favourite music with the world. Nobody could have known that this would last for 15 years - and there is no end in sight.

If God had a disco, the DJ would be playing California gospel-soul group The Supreme Jubilees. “We won’t have to cry no more,” the tuxedo-clad group would sing, in high, angelic vocals over smooth grooves. “It’ll all be over.” Prepare to dance and contemplate death all at the same time.A band of brothers and cousins, the group was founded from two familes: brothers Joe and Dave Kingsby plus Dave’s son David Kingsby Jr., and keyboardist Leonard Sanders plus his brothers Phillips (drummer), Tim (bassist), and Melvin (tenor). The Sanders clan grew up singing together in the Witness of Jesus Christ church in Fresno CA, where dad Marion was pastor. Guitarist Larry Price–who belonged to neither family–completed the line-up that recorded the group’s first–and, prophetically, only–album, It’ll All Be Over.Released in 1980 on the group’s own S&K (Sanders & Kingsby) label, It’ll All Be Over pinpoints a fatalistic mood exemplified by the title. Its lyrics drawn from the Old Testament, its sound from the church by way of the disco, and it’s a feel captured by the album cover–a low, orange sun setting over the Pacific ocean. It is, as Jessica Hundley observes in the brand new liner notes, “both apocalyptic and seductive.”Making the album was not easy. Sessions began in Trac Record Co, a country and western studio in Fresno, CA, where the engineer was so put out by the group’s requests for heavier bass in the mix, he stopped the session and kicked them out. They left with four songs–one side of the album–and the record was completed at Sierra Recording Studio in Visalia, CA. Leonard Sanders reported having a spiritual encounter in his sleep while in Visalia; the next day he recorded his part of the album’s title track in a single take.After the LP was pressed, the group took their music on tour, first in California, where they played with acts including the Gospel Keynotes, The Jackson Southernaires, and the Mighty Clouds of Joy, and then on an ill-fated trip to Texas. A follow-up album was planned for 1981, but it never materialized; having slept sometimes a dozen to a room in Texas, the men in the band were reluctant to leave jobs, wives, and kids for the hardship of the road. The group simply fizzled out, even if the friendships never did. A copy of the album sold to a fan on that Texan tour made its way to a San Antonio record store, where it was discovered nearly three decades later by collector David Haffner (Friends of Sound). He managed to track down the Kingsby-Sanders clan at a Fourth Of July barbeque in Fresno in 2004. And he eventually introduced the group to Light In The Attic Records, which now presents the album, restored, remastered, and available to the public for the first time.

Production duo Computa Games take the most slamming synth bass, the crispest drum machine hits, and the overall classic vibes of 80’s dance-funk tunes to new aural heights. Sculpted using the best modern studio techniques, the “Cosmic Dispatch” EP fuses funk, disco, soul and electro to various combinations, fitting the feel of the classiest nightclub or the grittiest backyard party. Each individual tune on the EP pairs with a unique vocalist or collaborator, as the project features guests Lovechild, B Bravo, Jackie Rain, Natalita, and E. Live. There is something killer and personalized on this EP for every type of dancer, funkster, and headnodder Around.The Computa Games project is the product of the combined efforts of Martin Arceneaux and Chris Arenas. Joining their deep roots of live funk, electronic/live production and DJing, they formed in the fall of 2012, and quickly released two singles on the Supermart Produce label. The two debuted their live set at Monarch in San Francisco, with follow up performances at SXSW in Austin, and Tipitina’s New Orleans. The group’s third single “Rock Creek (Revenge)” was released exclusively on Beatport, where it was a featured track on the site’s Funk/ R&B page and stayed in the Funk/R&B Top100 for nearly 2 months, peaking in the top15. The group then released the “Grand Design” EP in September 2013 on Super Mart Records, followed quickly by a remix of The Pendletons single “Let Me Turn You On” featuring K-Maxx, and then a remix of New Orleans based funk band Galactic’s “Heart Of Steel”, featuring the legendary Irma Thomas. In October of 2015 Computa Games released their first vinyl 7” on ABC records with “Do Your Thing” featuring K-Maxx b/w “Feel Right 2Nite” which promptly established them in the burgeoning modern funk scene. Their follow up 7” was released in January 2017 with the single “Computer Rock” b/w “Computer Rock (West Coast Remix)” on the New Orleans label Super Jock Records. Computer Rock garnered the duo more accolades with critics and fans alike.

Incidentally, a few years later the album’s producer Herb Rooney would go on to produce and write one of hip-hop’s most sampled records ever, “Synthetic Substitution” by Melvin Bliss. Long out-of print, Caviar And Chitlins is now available on vinyl for the frst time in decades. Discover it now thanks to this official reissue from Nature Sounds.

One of Jamaica’s most highly-rated vocalists, Alton Ellis made an incredible contribution to the island’s popular music. Blessed with a particularly emotive voice that brings shivers to the spine whether singing original material or cover tunes, Ellis was born and raised in Trench Town, the west Kingston ghetto area that gave rise to Bob Marley and the Wailers and countless other singers. Ellis and singing partner Eddie Parkins hit big in 1961 with the ballad ‘Muriel’ for Coxsone Dodd, and after Parkins moved to the USA, Ellis teamed briefly with John Holt, and then began fronting the Flames harmony group. He excelled in the rock steady style, christening the genre with ‘Rock Steady’ and ‘I Have Got A Date,’ bouncing between Studio One and Treasure Isle for a number of years. From 1971, he spent increasing period in London, but continued to record hits in Jamaica for various producers. The 1979 release Love To Share was arranged by the great Studio One keyboardist, Jackie Mittoo, who co-produced the album with Junior Lincoln, founder of the London-based Bamboo label; the disc straddles the line between lover’s rock and roots reggae, remaining a lesser-known classic.

Hailing from Dallas, Texas, The Demands were originally called The Fabulous Furys in college and switched to The Demands in May of 1969 to play a string of gigs in South Carolina for the summer. They cut the tunes for this single in 1973 with legendary North Texas engineer Phil York, originally pressed on Clem Records, original copies of this Northern Soul burner change hands for upwards of 600 bucks in good condition. The Demands had a moment of on screen fame in '73 appearing in the Blaxploitation film "Fox Style" as the house band at an outdoor fashion show. Band leader/founder Melvin Clemmons passed his bass duties to his brother around '79 so he could run his own nightclub and The Demands kept gigging until around '89 when they disbanded.Side A's “Say It Again” is an up Northern Soul number equal parts hi energy and good vibes. A sureshot for the soul parties, and a very welcome opportunity to put this obscure tune into collections.Side B's “Let Me Be Myself” is a smash of a ballad really showcasing a different side of the groups writing and performing abilities. The sweet soul folks are in for a treat on this one, sure to make it to all the lowrider enthusiasts mixes.

The full unreleased version of the o.g bboy classic 'Brazilian Rhyme' straight out the Sony tape vaults ( I made that sound easier than it was). Not just one for hip-hop heads, the appreciation of this groove is pretty much universal. The track is an uncredited cover of Toninho Horta's "Beijo Partido" most likely directly influenced by Milton Nascimentos version from the LP Minas which is a great cheap LP while we are on that. On the flip for the first time on 45 (until someone tells me there is some random German or Thai pressing) is one of my old modern spins, best 45 of the year and its only March.

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.

“Say You Love Me” war nicht die erste Soloaufnahme von “Om” Alec Khaoli, dochdie EP von 1985 zementierte den Ruf des Bassisten und Songwriters als einer derinnovativsten Popsongwriter in Südafrika. Er baute seine Karriere auf allgegenwärtigenRock, Pop und Soul Hits mit so bahnbrechenden Bands wie The Beaters, Harariund Umoja auf. Doch seine anscheinend niemals versiegende Musikquelle sprudelteauch außerhalb dieser Ensembles, in denen er typischerweise Bass spielt und zuSongwriting und Gesang beitrug. Khaoli veröffentlichte einige erfolgreicheSoloarbeiten, während er gerade mit Umoja aufnahm und mit Freunden an anderenProjekten arbeitete. Diese Kreativität wurde durch Khaolis eigenes Aufnahmestudiounterstützt. Er war der erste Südafrikaner mit einem privaten Studio. Weil schwarzeKünstler dazu gezwungen waren, in den Mittagspausen aufzunehmen und nichtausreichend Zugang zu den Studios im Besitz von Weißen hatten, war es dieses privateStudio, das es Khaoli erlaubte, sich eigenständig weiterzuentwickeln. Daraus erklärtsich auch sein weitreichendes kreatives Output in den achtziger und frühen neunzigerJahren, in denen er fünf Alben mit Umoja und fünf Solo-LPs neben einer ganzen Stangevon Singles und LPs veröffentlichte. Der fast schon epische Popsound aus „Say You LoveMe“ ist breit und dynamisch. Als erster Südafrikaner, der seinen eigenenAufnahmeprozess kontrollierte und sich somit von den vielen Entbehrungen aus derApartheid befreite, eröffnete Khaoli seiner Vision von Musik neue Luft zum Atmenund erschuf fast schon nebenbei zeitlose Musik für die Tanzfläche

Profusion (noun): an abundance of something rich - The sonic partnership of K15 and Emeson originated in the days of MySpace. A future of combining their skills was inevitable, and now in 2017, it's time to unleash their debut studio album into the ether. The solo-projects of Tottenham-raised Kieron Ifill (aka K15) date back a decade, but were truly kick-started on labels such as Kyle Hall's Wild Oats and WotNot Music, with a number of genre-crossing releases dropping ever since, including the WU15 project (along with Yussef Kamaal's Henry Wu, on Eglo Records). Additionally to his production work, he has established himself internationally as a DJ, from the Jazz Cafe to the CoOp parties. Partner in Profusion, Emeson, has many skills to his bow - singing, songwriting, producing, promoting, DJing (under the alias Ed Nice) and acting. As a musician, his varied skill-set has seen him work with Chico Hamilton, Carla Duke, Karmasound, Uzo Madu and Chris Jerome. A frontman for soul-jazz groups LifeSize, The One and Saturn's Children, he has featured on releases for BBE and Tokyo Dawn, and appeared live on stage at the likes of Ronnie Scott's. The debut single was supported by tastemaker blogs Wonderland, XLR8R and Stamp The Wax, has been bumped by selectors such as Lefto and Jazzie B, and played on NTS, Worldwide FM, Mi-Soul, LeMellotron, Balamii Radio, Itch FM, Invader FM, Soho Radio and various stations across Europe and the US. This album is full to the brim with summery sun-soaked synths, drifting across the warmest of basslines and heavyweight beats. Emeson's rich vocals gracefully ride atop of K15's delectably bruk twist on neo-soul sonics and electronics, this is some seriously classy contemporary London soul music, that manages to incorporate flashes of various dance music techniques, sound-system etiquette and jazz-tinged rhythms. As future-thinking as it is subtly retrospective, it doesn't lend itself to one genre, it intentionally embodies the best of many. An array of everything that is great about British black music in 2017. The message the album conveys itself couldn't have come at a more poignant time. Where do we begin?Profusion - an abundance of something rich indeed.

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.

Hinter dem Alias BB Boogie verbirgt sich Daz-I-Kue, Originalmitglied von Bugz In The Attic. Und das nichtohne Grund. Als Teil des Londoner Produzenten- und DJ-Kollektivs war Daz-I-Kue in den Nullerjahrenmaßgeblicher Protagonist der Broken-Beat-Szene. Doch damit hat sein Solodebüt "Standing On The Wall"überhaupt nichts am Hut. Nach seinem Umzug nach Atlanta ist er tief in die dortige, lokale Musikszeneeingetaucht. Und seitdem ist Daz-I-Kue vom Soul-, Funk- und Disco-Virus infiziert. Was sich natürlich nichtallein im Künstlernamen niederschlägt, sondern vor allem im Sound von "Standing On The Wall". DessenCovergestaltung und der Albumtitel dürfen dabei als Reminiszenz an "Off The Wall", Michael Jacksonsbahnbrechendem Werk von 1979, gesehen werden. Klanglich orientiert sich die Doppel-LP ebenfalls andieser Zeit, das heißt dem Boogie der späten Siebziger und frühen Achtziger und damit Größen wie UnlimitedTouch, Chic, Rod Temperton, Roy Ayers und Cameo. Bei den elf Songs gingen Daz-I-Kue prominenteSänger und Musiker zur Hand, darunter Vanessa Freeman, Monica Blaire, Joy Jones, Grant Green Jr. sowieder legendäre Leroy Burgess.Seite

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?"

Having battled the witches and wizards of Darkscorch, the outlaws of Cosmic Americana, and traveled alongside Ladies From the Canyon and their Lonesome Heroes, it’s time to take it easy.With pop music’s volume knob adjusted for deflation in the early ‘70s, softness begat smoothness. Crewmen arrived from the worlds of jazz, folk, rock, and soul, all peddling a product that was sincere, leisurely, and lofty. A sound that was buoyant, crisp, defined. Sometimes classified as West Coast—and, later, Yacht Rock—the compass points of our Private Yacht expedition are the blue-eyed harmonies of Hall and Oates, the cocaine-dusted Fender Rhodes of Michael McDonald, and the combover strums of James Taylor. Here, at the glassy apex of rock’s softer side, 20 strong swimmers are gathered together. An album for both relaxation and reflection, where listeners can enjoy the present, a cool breeze, and a taste of the good life.

You have to really search through the Doré catalogue to find the soul 45s, but when you do it is hugely rewarding. Its jewels have only been revealed to Northern Soul collectors over time and several are ridiculously scarce; Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Keep On Movin’’ and the Swans’ ‘Nitty Gritty City’ remain one-off disc discoveries. Guaranteed dancefloor classics abound, including Rita & the Tiaras’ ‘Gone With The Wind Is My Love’, Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Oh How I Love You’ and the Puffs’ ‘I Only Cry Once A Day Now’. The Superbs’ ‘Wind In My Sails’ and Milton James’ mesmeric ‘My Lonely Feeling’ represent the funkier end of the Northern Soul sound, while tracks by Ray Marchand and the Shades Of Jade are subtle mid-tempo soul of the highest quality. Nearly all are rare, expensive and beautiful, while Kenard’s ‘What Did You Gain By That’ is highly imaginative, and the Fidels’ ‘I’m Givin’ You Notice Baby’ is just a classic 60s soul stomper. All together on beautiful 12-inch vinyl, they are irresistible.

With their first two Daptone albums – Get an Understanding, and as featured singers on Como Now – The Como Mamas established themselves as three of the strongest voices in gospel music today. In December of 2015, they cemented that reputation by taking their first trip from their home in Como, MS up to Harlem, NY to crush the Apollo Theater as part of the Daptone Super Soul Revue. Taking full advantage of their presence in town, the Daptone crew brought Ester Mae Wilbourn, Della Daniels, and Angelia Taylor into the House of Soul the week after the show to join forces for the first time with the musicians and studio that has defined their label’s sound. Jimmy Hill, Thomas Brenneck, Homer Steinweiss, and Bosco Mann, all stalwarts of the Daptone stable, came together as “The Glorifiers Band,” to put down a churning musical foundation for these amazing singers. The results are some of the heaviest tracks that Daptone has cut to date. If you don’t like raw, soulful gospel music, you’re really gonna hate this one. Move Upstairs is a real mother!

Cookin' On 3 Burners are Australia's foremost organ trio joining the dots between funk, soul, boogaloo & jazz. Long time partners Lance Ferguson (guitar), Ivan Khatchoyan (drums) and Jake Mason (organ) have taken their home brew of soulful Hammond get down everywhere from jazz festivals to after hours bars and clubs. Their top notch reputation led to them supporting Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings in Sydney, jamming live with Breakestra and becoming THE in demand band south of the equator. With a musical CV that includes names like Joe Bataan, Alice Russell, Mark de Clive-Lowe and The Quantic Soul Orchestra, as well as the world beating outfit The Bamboos, it's not surprising this latest CO3B album has generated huge interest even prior to its' release. Their first Freestyle album 'Baked, Broiled or Fried' featured the group in a hardcore funk groove but on 'Soul Messin' sees the sound, feel and influences widened further with some quite magical results. Versatile singer Kylie Auldist (Tru Thoughts Recordings) opens proceedings on the deep funk groove of 'Push It Up' but it is the Freestyle 45 'This Girl' (FSR7057) that provides the mellow, beautiful and incredibly catchy vocal highlight of the entire collection, shimmering horns ride over this laid back, future deep soul classic. We don't yet know what Gary Numan will make of CO3B's version of his 80's synth pop hit 'Cars' (CD only) but Jake Masons organ playing (including simultaneously supplying the super funky bass lines via his Hammond foot pedals and left hand) takes this track in a direction no one was expecting! Drummer and top notch singer Fallon Williams provides his gritty, searing voice on 'Hole In My Pocket' and 'Seen Through Your Disguise' sounding very much like US soul legend Robert Moore and the band display their versatility whilst doffing their caps in the direction of The Meters on the numbers 'Dog Wash' and 'Piranha' The down tempo, moody album closer 'The Proving Grounds' (CD only) once again shows the groups expanding musical textures and rounds off 'Soul Messin' the bands most varied and accomplished recording so far.

Until he was about 20, Texas-born Melvin Sparks was a rhythm & blues guitarist, backing Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye as a member of The Upsetters. But Sparks gave up his seat on The Upsetters' bus in New York City, where a chance introduction to George Benson led him to a place in soul jazz history. Melvin played and recorded with Lou Donaldson, Leon Spencer, Bernard Purdie, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Idris Muhammad, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, Grover Washington Jr., Reuben Wilson and so many more. Even during the quietest years of soul-jazz Melvin stayed relevant through hip-hop and r&b; a quick search at WhoSampled turns up more than 150 samples of his funky chicken scratch. And Melvin's legacy is heard in contemporary soul/funk bands like The New Mastersounds, Soulive and The Greyboy Allstars, all of whom he also guested with several times before his early departure from this realm in 2011.This release documents Melvin's final band just months before his death. Organist Beau Sasser and drummer Bill Carbone had been working with Sparks for several years, and, despite the power dynamic - they were in their early 30s, Melvin an elder-statesmen of the genre - the unit was sharp, relaxed and performed Melvin's music with a jovial spirit. The trio played the Burlington, VT club Nectar's regularly, but this night featured two "onlys." Per the recommendation of Nectar's agent they used the "Grippo Horns," the only time Sparks used a horn section in the last several years of his life, and they allowed a multitrack recording of the show. Both were strong decisions.The tracks on this album, lovingly mixed by guitarist, producer and Melvin Sparks fan Eddie Roberts, demonstrate that Melvin played as well in the final months of his life as at any time. Sparks counts "Whip! Whop!" off at what he said The Upsetters called a "showtime tempo," and peppers it, as well as most of the album, with quotes from jazz standards, pop songs and cartoon themes, all woven effortlessly into the bebop-funk dialect he helped create. He unfolds amiable melodies, patiently and methodically, through his several-minute lead on "Breezin'." And Sparks is audibly uplifted by the Grippo Horns helping him perform his 1973 arrangement of "Ain't No Woman" for the first time in decades.
