The drums smack. The bass is too loud. Liberia, Ghana, all the way across to Uganda. 1970's tinpot dictatorships birth colourful sounds. Magnetic tape, Linn drums and Bucket Brigade delay units confuse the mix. Sub-cultural colonialism to destroy the dance. Still, it sounds good. And it looks nice. Nice sleeve art. Move along. Move along....

That’s where there are no clocks on the walls and all time disappears. Thus, the group members were able to expose themselves into the creativemoment in making this remarkable recording. Finally, the left-field studio production techniques gave this recording that tasty Ghetto Hi-fi feeling that is signature for all Odd Funk Records’ 100% analog productions.

Erstmals erschien die LP "Vamonos/Let’s Go" 1970 beim kleinen, in Chicago ansässigen Label Futuro. Beidieser handelt es sich um die einzige Veröffentlichung des Orchestra Soledad, einer Salsa-Band ausBrooklyn. Deren Vorsteher war der Posaunist Hector Ramos, der auch für den Großteil der rohen,authentischen und energisch-ungestümen Arrangements verantwortlich ist. Dass die Platte in Vergessenheitgeriet und somit ein exklusives Sammlerstück ist, versteht sich von selbst, erregte sie doch schon in ihremErscheinungsjahr kaum Aufmerksamkeit. Doch wie es das Schicksal will, entdeckte DJ Amir das gute Stückbeim Stöbern in einer Secondhand-Plattenkiste, zufälligerweise in einem Laden in Ramos’ Nachbarschaft.Angezogen durch das plakative Cover und fasziniert vom eigenwilligen Sound, erwarb DJ Amir das Vinyl undwählte sogleich das Stück "El Ritmo Soledad" für seine gerade in Mache befindliche Kompilation "BuenaMúsica y Cultura" aus, die 2016 bei BBE erschien und Latin-Musik des ganzen amerikanischen Kontinentspräsentierte. Offensichtlich beeindruckte der Song auch die Verantwortlichen bei BBE, schieben sie dochumstandslos die Neuauflage von "Vamonos/Let’s Go" als LP hinterher.

Zeitloser Klassiker von 1997: Solodebüt des legendären Buena-Vista-Social-Club-Pianisten. Ry Cooder sagteüber Ruben Gonzalez: "Der großartigste Solopianist, den ich in meinem Leben gehört habe." Dabei nahmseine Karriere erst so richtig Fahrt auf, nachdem er sich bereits in den Altersruhestand verabschiedet hatte.Das war 1996, als er mit "Introducing ..." sein Solodebüt aufnahm. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt besaß der 1919 in derStadt Santa Clara auf Kuba geborene Pianist schon gar kein eigenes Instrument mehr. Das Album wurde imJahr darauf von World Circuit im Zuge der von Cooder produzierten CD "Buena Vista Social Club"veröffentlicht. Auf dieser ist Gonzalez zusammen mit Compay Segundo, dem Chef des Buena Vista SocialClub, sowie Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo und einigen anderen, meist älteren kubanischen Musikern imRentenalter zu hören. "Buena Vista Social Club" folgte dem gleichnamigen Wenders-Film, welcher derFormation und seinen Mitgliedern rund um den Globus zu ungeahnter Popularität verhalf. DieWiederveröffentlichung von "Introducing ..." enthält die drei Songs "Cumbanchero", "Tres Lindas Cubanas"und "Tumbao" in Extended-Fassungen sowie den unveröffentlichten Bonustrack "Descarga Ruben yCachaito". Für die Neuauflage wurden die Lieder in den Abbey Road Studios eigens von den Masterbändernneu gemischt. "Introducing ..." erscheint erstmals auchals Doppel-LP auf 180g-Vinyl.

Zweifellos ist Manu Dibango ein zentraler Protagonist der modernen afrikanischen Musik. Nur wenigeKünstler haben so einflussreich und vor allem groovy Klänge des schwarzen Kontinents mit Jazz, Soul, Funkund Hip-Hop verknüpft, wie der 1933 geborene Komponist und Saxofonist aus Kamerun. Sein 1972veröffentlichtes Stück "Soul Makossa" war einer der ersten Disco-Tracks überhaupt, und er ist bis heute seinTrademark-Song geblieben. Weitere bekannte Hits, auf denen er stilbildend traditionelle Rhythmen seinerHeimat mit der populären kamerunischen Tanzmusik Makossa und Black Music mischte, sind "Africadelic","Waka Juju" und "Afrijazzy". Mit seinem Album "Wakafrika" machte sich Manu Dibango zu seinem 60.Geburtstag ein ganz besonderes Geschenk, indem er sich Hits der afrikanischen Musik, der Weltmusik undseiner eigenen Karriere vorknöpfte, neu arrangierte und mit prominenten Gästen der Welt- undPopmusikszene neu einspielte, darunter Youssou N’Dour, King Sunny Adé, Salif Keita, Angélique Kidjo, PapaWemba, Peter Gabriel, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Kaïssa Doumbé, Alex Brown, Touré Kunda und SinéadO'Connor.

Wo gehobelt wird, da fallen Späne. David Grottschreiber hobelt zusammen mit seinem Lucerne Jazz Orchestra seit Jahren am zeitgenössischen Big Band Jazz. Musikalisch war es noch nie so poppig. Oaktree ist ein Big Band Singer Songwriter Album. Mit viel Story, Farbe und Poesie. Das neue Studioalbum schlägt breitere Töne an. Episch und hymnenhaft erscheint die Titelmelodie, begleitet von tief pflügenden Grooves. Mit So Real, einer Komposition der verstorbenen 90er Indie-Rock Koryphäe Jeff Buckley, gibt es erstmals ein Pop-Cover, das das Potential hat, eingefleischte Bad Plus Fan-Köpfe zum nicken zu bringen. Oaktree ist maßgebend für den zeitgenössischen Big Band-Sound und Werdegang. Der Erfolg und das Schaffen des LJO und Grottschreibers stellt weiter Weichen für Bands dieser Größenordnung.

Highlights stamp, swoon and swing from every track: the doo-wop slides of The Sapphires, the smoky drama of The Salvadors and archetypal Northern Soul floor-stompers such as "Our Love Is Getting Stronger". The number one all-nighter continues to burn brightly well over 40 years later.

Genre:Organic Grooves
John Coltrane transformed the inner architecture of jazz, throughout the mid-1950s and 1960s and long after his premature death at age 40 in 1967. No other American musician could be said to be at the spiritual center of the ‘60s musical universe as Trane influenced Albert Ayler, La Monte Young, Jimi Hendrix and everybody in between. Cosmic Music, originally self-released by Alice Coltrane in 1968 and later issued by Impulse!, features two tracks (“Manifestation” and “Rev. King”) by John Coltrane’s legendary final quintet that were recorded in San Francisco on February 2nd, 1966 and two more (“Lord Help Me To Be” and “The Sun”) from Alice Coltrane’s very first session as a bandleader, recorded six months after her husband’s passing. “Manifestation” opens with the group already in mid-flight: Trane’s fierce tenor leads the way with Pharoah Sanders’ blistering sax and Alice’s powerful chords hearing his call. On “Rev. King,” Trane introduces a lyrical theme and then the composition erupts into fiery incantations, while Jimmy Garrison’s bass throbs alongside the propulsive, gravity-defying drumming of Rashied Ali. Foreshadowing her majestic debut, A Monastic Trio, “Lord Help Me To Be” brings Alice’s celestial piano playing and inspired improvisations to the foreground with Sanders, Garrison and drummer Ben Riley rumbling in tow. “The Sun,” a meditative ballad with subtle urgency, perfectly closes the album’s contemplative circle. As John Coltrane recites on the final track, “May there be peace and love and perfection throughout all creation.”

The African beat's always been essential to Brazil's music. But now the new generation of musicians, singers and rappers are tweaking the basics of Fela's funk to fit with samba swing, bossa tempo and nordestino nous. John Armstrong's new compilation Afrobeat Brasil features 14 blazing tracks from 2011 to 2017 that nod towards Nigeria, Ethiopia, Mali and beyond – with feet firmly in Brazil.For the first time outside Brazil, a careful selection of modern Afrobeat- inspired tunes from across several Brazilian genres, taking in cutting-edge players from Rio, São Paulo, Salvador, Porto Alegre –and even Paris. No slavish Fela Kuti copycats these, but rather Afrobeat and other specific African tempos and rhythms used as a blueprint, a buildingblock for new directions in Brazilian music.

Nautilus is a trio centered around drummer Toshiyuki Sasaki, formed in 2014 along with its Bassist Shigeki Umezawa and Keyboardist Daisuke Takeuchi. Their distinctive style, which can be summarized as the modern rare groove, embodies a mixture of jazz, funk, disco, soul and even hip hop. The conception of Nautilus is drawn not only from the composition “Nautilus” written by Bob James, but also from an American submarine that actually existed, thus resembling their contemporary style that carries on the rare groove music of the 70s in an abyssal imagery. Sasaki’s versatile, yet solid drumming combined with Umezawa’s full- bodied, powerful bass and Takeuchi’s classically-trained prowess produces an exceptional sound unique all on its own.

It was recorded with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, marking the first time that Fitzgerald and Riddle had worked together.The album cover is an original portrait of Fitzgerald by the French artist Bernard Buffet, starting a tradition of using contemporary artists for Fitzgerald's albums, the artwork of Henri Matisse gracing the cover of her Harold Arlen Songbook (1961).Riddle arranged fifty-seven Gershwin compositions for the album, including the two orchestral suites which open the album. Though Fitzgerald was twenty-years-old at the time George Gershwin died in 1937, Ira Gershwin was still alive to see this project completed, and helped contribute lyrics and support to some songs on the album which had never been recorded before. It was this project that led Ira Gershwin to say that he had "never known how good our songs were until I heard Ella sing them".Ella Fitzgerald was forty-one when she recorded this album, and at the peak of her vocal powers, demonstrated in the earlier Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Duke Ellington Song Book, and her two greatest live albums from this period, Ella in Berlin (1960) and Ella in Rome (1958). Like the other songbooks devoted to the Broadway composers, Fitzgerald gets only a single outlet for her notable scat singing, on "I Got Rhythm".Fitzgerald's recording of "But Not for Me" won her the 1960 Grammy Award for Best Vocal Performance, Female.It is listed as one of the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Aufgenommen in den Geburtsstunden der Electric Fusion und des Afro-Funk, ist der brillante Soundtrack zur bekannten 60er-Jahre Fernsehserie „Daktari“ desWestküsten-Schlagzeugers Shelly Manne noch immer ein Meilenstein des weltweiten Fusion. Der häufige Einsatz der Marimba und diverser anderer Schlaginstrumentemacht den Soundtrack aus und brachte ihm seinen großen Erfolg. Auf dem Album spielt Mike Wofford ein manipuliertes Piano, um afrikanische Klängenachzuempfinden, und Manne tut sich mit den Schlagzeugern Emil Richards, Larry Bunker, Frank Carlson und Vivtor Feldman zusammen. SteelyDan-Gitarrist Walter Becker war ein Fan der „entfernt afrikanischen“ Musik des Albums, welches klang als hätten es nicht Afrikaner, sondern „Sessionmusiker ausHollywood“ eingespielt. In den späten 1990er Jahren baute Becker eine Percussion-Spur in diesem Stil auf dem Song „Two Against Nature“, das auf dem gleichnamigenSteely Dan-Album veröffentlicht wurde.

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.

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.

Grammy Award winning composer, producer, singer and drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. will present the megalithic debut album Triumph. Eleven cuts of deep fusion, soul, R&B, jazz and pop, Triumph was put together with Ronald’s brothers Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner and Jameel Bruner of The Internet. It was captured during the infamous KSL Sessions that produced Kamasi Washington’s The Epic and many other West Coast Get Down recordings.Features are drawn out from an impressive list of musicians across Triumph, including the late and great George Duke, Warner Bros. recording artist Mac Miller and many of the core members of the West Coast Get Down. Thundercat laces bass guitar on a majority of the LP, building on the rhythm section with the highest degrees of finesse and technicality.Triumph’s trajectory in fusion is, in one way, a direct result of working with century defining artists such as Stanley Clarke, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Wayne Shorter, Prince, Chaka Khan, Q-Tip, Kenny Garrett and Stevie Wonder. In another way, it’s the expression of a soul that’s independently seasoned, rich in unique experiences and unashamedly unrestrained. The musical manifestation of a man that’s evolved into the role of a father, musical anchor and community leader.The roads leading to Triumph are vast and intertwining, beginning with the culture that his father Ronald Bruner Sr. brought to his life under stints with Diana Ross, The Temptations, Randy Crawford and Gladys Knight. Musically, Triumph is an expression of many styles and modes Ronald’s absorbed through his professional career as a drummer, singer and producer, mixed down into the flavor that he’s dubbed “progressive soul.” The technicality of the album explodes in every seam and the passion, soul and craftsmanship of the songwriting is at an equally high level.Lyrically, Triumph touches on the deepest extensions of the heart, the restraints of human connection and the dynamic free for all of growing through this world. Every cadence and form of Ronald’s singing is pulled from the bottom of his heart because of this. Family, friendships, love, turmoil, happiness, social issues, politics, musical heritage and many other topics find a seat at the table on Triumph. A powerful combination of musicianship and lyricism that’s unlike anything else out right now.One of the most important roads leading to Triumph has seeds planted with bass extraordinaire Stanley Clarke and keyboard maestro George Duke. While working with the legends in the mid-2000s, they pushed Ronald to unleash his own masterwork and join a legacy only a handful of drummers have entered. The influence that Stanley Clarke, George Duke and many others had on the birthing process of Triumph is a magnificent story that will continue to present new chapters through time. Stepping back from the influences and Triumph stands firmly as a pure amalgamation of fusion, reaching the highest plateaus of creativity, songwriting and technicality in this era.

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.

Auf ihrem zweiten Album „Come As You Are“ feiern Jazz Against the Machine wieder Ihre Lieblingslieder aus den 90ern: Perlen des Grunge, Rock und Metal, die sie kompromisslos - aber respektvoll - mit Trompete, Vibraphon, Bass und Schlagzeug interpretieren. So wird „Refuse / Resist“ von Sepultura als Samba gespielt und deckt auf, wie viel lateinamerikanischer Rhythmus in der brasilianischen Metal Band steckt. Panteras „Walk“ ist schon im Original geshuffelt und „Black Hole Sun“ steckt bei Soundgarden bereits so voller harmonischer Finessen, dass der Song längst ein Jazz Standard geworden ist. Überraschendes, wie Becks „Loser“ und vor allem Red Hot Chili Pepper’s „Under the bridge“ im jazzigen Afrobeat-Gewand, findet sich ebenfalls auf der Tracklist. Gute Songs bleiben eben gute Songs!

Die malische, 1968 geborene Wassoulou-Musikerin Oumou Sangaré ist so etwas wie die Diva der Weltmusik.Seit 1990 hat die UN-Botschafterin mit Künstlerinnen wie Alicia Keys, Tracy Chapman, Bela Fleck und DeeDee Bridgewater kollaboriert, ist mehrfach weltweit getourt und hat sechs überaus erfolgreiche Alben beiWorld Circuit veröffentlicht, die einen nicht unwesentlichen Beitrag zum Boom malischer Musik leisteten."Mogoya" kommt nun allerdings via Nø Førmat! in den Handel. Nicht die einzige Veränderung, auch dasKlangbild wurde modifiziert. Zwar fußen die neuen Songs nach wie vor tief in den Traditionen Malis, doch derSound wirkt viel frischer und kraftvoller, als man das von früheren Aufnahmen kennt. "This time round Iwanted to go for more of a modern sound, to satisfy young people in Mali but being careful, all the while, torespect my culture and tradition", wie Sangaré unterstreicht. Neben herkömmlichen afrikanischenKlangerzeugern wie dem Saiteninstrument Kamele N’goni oder der Röhrenglocke Karignan kamen zu diesemZweck elektrische Gitarren, Bass, Keyboards, Synthesizer und Tony Allen an den Drums zum Einsatz. Fürdie Produktion von "Mogoya" zeichnen der Schwede Andreas Unge und das französische Kollektiv A.l.b.e.r.t.(Ludovic Bruni, Vincent Taurelle, Vincent Taeger), das bereits für Air, Tony Allen, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beckund Franz Ferdinand tätig war, verantwortlich.

Official reissue of one of the hardest to find albums by the Afro Soul maestro, a pure Afro Funk spiritual grail from 1978!Born in 1943 in Ikole-Ekiti in Ondo State, Nigeria, Orlando Julius Ekemode (“Orlando was really a nickname, taken from the Nigerian actor, Orlando Martins“) had started in music from an early age, becoming the school drummer and learning flute, bugle and other instruments at St Peters Anglican School in Ikole-Ekiti. Nigerian musician, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he is credited as one of the first musicians to fuse US R&B into traditional highlife music, creating his own influential Afrobeat sound during the mid-‘60s.From his time playing in the USA during the 1970s onwards, he is credited with bringing African music to a broader audience and famously co-composed the song “Going Back To My Roots” with Lamont Dozier. In 1978, Orlando Julius Ekemode decided to produce himself this amazing session, originally recorded between Maryland and West Virginia (USA) and released in limited quantity in Nigeria by the obscure label Jungle Records. 6 stunning Afro-Funk monster tracks, recorded by 8 musicians based in Oakland.Fully licensed with the artist and remastered by The Carvery.

Moondog is the fifth album by American composer Moondog.Moondog had released no music for twelve years since his 1957 album The Story of Moondog. Finally, in 1969, producer James William Guercio invited him to record an album for Columbia Records.[1]The resulting album compiled various music which Moondog had been working on since the 1950s. This included two "minisyms" (Moondog's term for short symphonic-styled works performed by small orchestras); two canons; a chaconne in memory of Charlie Parker; ballet music originally written for Martha Graham ("Witch of Endor"); and three symphonic (or "symphonique") works, one of which was dedicated to Benny Goodman and featured elements of swing. A version of one composition, "Theme", had previously been recorded for Epic Records in 1952

Two South African mastercuts by the legendary Senyaka Kekana. The unexpected deep house jam "Bayanyonyoba (1993)" and the illustrious soul song "Don't Judge Me Bad (1987)" are big RH favorites. Original copies are absolutely impossible to find, now released on 12inch for the first time.Esa Williams - "I had the pleasure of performing alongside Senyaka at the Alexander Theatre, Johannesburg back in 2012 which would have probably been his last most iconic gig before his passing in 2015. These two tracks really showcase the sounds of South Africa around the early to late 80’s, the influences from American synth pop and House that would then lead later into many of these records being played at the wrong speed which ultimately became the original Kwaito sound from South Africa."

Since the release of his 2 first albums on Favorite Recordings, Lucas Arruda has quickly established himself as one of the most talented young artist and composer from Brazil. His music is filled with fusion style, mixing influences and elements from his Latin musical background, with his genuine admiration for Jazz, Soul and Funk music.In spring 2015, it was also not surprising to find Lucas Arruda back with a new LP called SOLAR, receiving great supports and feedbacks from international media and tastemakers. One of the highlight of the album was the song “Melt the Night”, on which Lucas asked legendary producer Leon Ware for his help, reminding his collaborations in the 80s with Marcos Valle, when they perfectly merged together the sophisticated Boogie and AOR touch from California, with the blazing sense of rhythm from Brazil.Today, Lucas Arruda and Favorite Recordings proudly present a brand new single, announcing the release of Lucas’ third efforts later this year. This new opus is pursuing the music direction set with SOLAR, mixing touch of Blue-Eyed-Soul, Pop, Soul and Brazilian styles together, and influenced by the path of legendary Brazilian producer Lincoln Olivetti, who recorded some of the biggest stars of Brazilian music (Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia…).In Lucas words: “These two tracks represent the whole spirit of the new album. In this record I really wanted to honor Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti. They are the main influence on this record. We recorded the basic tracks for the album in the same studio that Lincoln Olivetti did his last works. So, this was very important to capture the true essence of Brazilian Funk/AOR tradition. Hope you guys enjoy it!”

It's always great to have access to quality masters from some of the world's greatest-ever artists and Gladys Knight hits that spot, especially via the original 12 inch version of Love Is Always On My Mind is another one of those impossibly rare Buddah 12 inches from the mid-70s. This is really a 10 minute plus tour-de-force of relentless Disco with Gladys's impassioned vocals doing their usual superlative job. Mint 12 inch copies are reputedly worth £200 but the fact is that there's no mint original ones left anymore. Until now. Additionally we've cheated slightly by including one of Gladys Knight & The Pips in-demand Columbia recordings on the flip - the Ashford & Simpson penned classic Bourgie Bourgie on which Gladys laid down the definitive vocal to this club classic on the full 4.37 original 12 inch mix. Two definitive dance-floor gems on one 12 inch pressing mastered from the original tapes. What more could you want ?

We are proud to announce another belter of a double-sided monster. Welcome to the brilliant Herbie Hancock with the always in-demand slinky groover Stars In Your Eyes on the much coveted 11.21 "special disco remix". This is quite simply one of the smoothest Disco rides you will ever take with a production made in heaven and a vocalist supreme with Gavin Christopher taking it to another level. Find an original U.S. promo of this if you can. There's lookalikes about which are inferior quality! As if that wasn't enough, we've only gone and paired it with the hugely rare U.S. promo-only 12" "specialdisco remix" of the scintillating Saturday Night. This is as rare as hens teeth and you'd be lucky to find a mint one for less than €50. Featuring an extended percussion break from the fantastic Sheila E, this a very different mix to the original album version and was never widely circulated at the time. So another nice rare gem. As double-siders go, this really takes some beating. Order with confidence because this will still be selling for years to come.

Laughing on the Outside is the fifth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin released on August 12, 1963. The album was recorded at Columbia Recording Studios in New York and Hollywood. These sessions found a 21-year-old Aretha Franklin recording Jazz Music and Pop Music standards, from Johnny Mercer to Duke Ellington. She is backed by the arrangements of Columbia producer Robert Mersey.(...)In Skylark, the opening number, her voice soars “in lovely flight,” like the bird invoked in the lyrics; standards like For All We Know, Ellington’s Solitude and Berlin’s Say It Isn’t So become new experiences as projected by Aretha’s rare magnetic power. She gives new songs like I Wonder (for which Aretha wrote the words), If Ever I Would Leave You and I Wanna Be Around distinctive, unforgettable interpretations, the kind that set standards for time and singers to come. An especial highlight is Aretha’s treatment of one of the most touching songs to come along in some time, Mr. Ugly. Throughout the album,conductor Robert Mersey’s tasteful arrangements lend Aretha strong, sympathetic support” Numbered first press of 500 copies.

This album came about through a fortuitous convergence of circumstances. Shelly Manne & His Men were appearing at New York’s Village Vanguard, sharing the bill with the Bill Evans Trio. Creed Taylor set up a session at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio with Evans and Manne sharing top billing. Manne’s bass player, Monty Budwig, made up the trio. This was a busman’s holiday for Evans, who was freed from the musical parameters he had set for his then-current trio. The result is that his playing seemed lighter, freer, and more relaxed than it had for a while (...) It’s clear that everyone was having a good time and simply enjoying being relieved of their duties with their regular combos, even if for just one day (allmusic) Numbered first press of 500 copies.

Originally released in 1978 on Greg Charmichael's Red Greg Records, "Lady Bug" and ""Love Bug"" are probably Bumblebee Unlimited's most recognizable hits. Much like Cloud One, Universal Robot Band and Inner Life, Bumblebee Unlimited was a studio-based disco unitconducted by Patrick Adams and Gregory Carmichael. Their only album "Sting Like a Bee" was released by RCA in 1979 with contributions from longtime Adams & Carmichael collaborators Leroy Burgess (vocals), Norbert Sloley (bass), and Richard Taninbaum (drums). With an undeniable groove, signature keys and arrangements by Patrick Adams in additionto the comically sped-up vocals, Lady Bug is considered by many to be one of the most important underground tracks of the Disco era. As with the original "Lady Bug" 12" Single, the John Morales and Frank Trimarco "Sunshine Sound" mix takes the A-side of the RCA release. A true Disco version in every sense of the word, this almost 10 minute mix brings out the Latin percussions to the front makingit a true dance floor classic and establishing John Morales as one of the best remixers in the industry.The B-Side belongs to one of New York City's hottest DJs at the time: Larry Levan. Despite being a very early remix by the Legendary Paradise Garage DJ, the talent was evident and his understanding of a club mix in wide display. It’s no wonder Larry Levan would go to become one of the most respected and revered remixers of his generation. Similarly to the Morales/Trimarco version, the percussions are accented throughout themix making it ready for the discotheque. However the two mixes are undoubtely different with Levan’s bringing out more funk out of the Adams compositionfocusing more on the keys and the infectious bass lines. No real point in arguing which is better, so let’s just be glad we have both.

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

The American Epic historical documentaries are a journey back in time to the “Big Bang” of modern popular music.In the 1920s, as radio took over the pop music business, record companies were forced to leave their studios in major cities in search of new styles and markets. Ranging the mountains, prairies, rural villages, and urban ghettos of America, they discovered a wealth of unexpected talent. The recordings they made of all the ethnic groups of America democratized the nation and gave a voice to everyone. Country singers in the Appalachians, Blues guitarists in the Mississippi Delta, Gospel preachers across the south, Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Tejano groups from the Texas Mexico border, Native American drummers in Arizona, and Hawaiian musicians were all recorded. For the first time, a woman picking cotton in Mississippi, a coalminer in Virginia or a tobacco farmer in Tennessee could have their thoughts and feelings heard on records played in living rooms across the country. It was the first time America heard itself.American Epic: The Soundtrack, is a 15 song single disc anthology of songs featured in the American Epic film trilogy. Compiled by Lo-Max Records, it includes restored archival recordings from artists such as Memphis Jug Band, The Carter Family, Charley Patton, Joseph Falcon, Lydia Mendoza and others.

Louisiana delta native Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter is the master of twelve-string blues guitar. His story is one of high-highs and low-lows, from serving stints in prison after killing a man in a fight for a woman’s heart, but then eventually earning early release by entertaining his fellow prison-mates and penning a song for the governor, thus cementing his reputation of singing his way out of prison. Folklorists John and Alan Lomax were early supporters that brought Lead Belly to the attention of Ivy Leaguers as well as a European audience. His songs have been widely covered by artists such as Elvis, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, and the Grateful Dead.Single LP with single pocket tip-on jacket with soft touch finish

Texas slide guitarist and gospel bluesman Blind Willie Johnson recorded only 30 songs over the course of his life as a preacher and street performer. Even so, the savvy combination of his gritty and powerful “chest voice” singing style coupled with his mastery of slide guitar (some report he regularly used a knife as a slide) has given him a notably influential legacy, specifically with later bluesmen Howlin’ Wolf and Robert Johnson. His tune “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” was selected for Carl Sagan’s Voyager probe Golden Record, the Library of Congress as well as the National Recording Registry.Single LP with single pocket tip-on jacket with soft touch finish
