7" | 1968 | EU | Reissue (Tramp)
10,99 €*
Release:1968 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Shirley Wahls is known as one of the young pioneers of Gospel music. Singing in the church since the age of three, she began her singing career in the junior choir of the Mt Pleasant Baptist Church under the direction of Ruth Jones. Her professional career began with such legendary groups as "The Argo Singers", "The Ward Gospel Singers" and "The Dorothy Norwood Singers" before trying her hand on secular music around the mid 1960s. Between 1967 and 1976 she had released eight 45RPM singles on different labels such as King, Calla, Smash, Blue Rock, and Giant. The two songs featured on this 45 are probably her funkiest recordings and were long overdue for an official reissue. We'd like to say "Thank You" to Ms. Wahls for giving us the permission to re-release these wonderful songs. This is an essential double-sider which certainly fills any dance floor.

Big John K began singing in church at age five and taught himself to play piano. His performing career actually began in Dayton, Ohio around 1957 where he played with Ray Charles and several members of Count Basie's band. In the late 1950s he recorded around twenty different songs but only six singles were released. He then changed his name to Johnny K. and was signed to Epic Records in 1969. He played shows with Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, B.J. Thomas and opened for Jimi Hendrix but left Epic Records in 1971. "Poor Souls" and "Marching Home" were both released on tiny indie labels and remained unknown even in collector circles to this day. The Tramp crew is extremely happy to finally re-release these two cuts - 110% rhythm & blues dynamite!

Afro-Cuban Jazz of the highest orderl! And even better, these two songs have remained UNRELEASED for the past 52 years! Vibraphonist, flutist, and band leader Ulysses Crockett was a big name on the Bay Area latin-jazz scene of the 1960s. He started out with his own group Afro Blue Persuasion which included a very young Paul Jackson on bass who later became famous as a member of Herbie Hankock's fusion-jazz masters The Headhunters."Cuban Fantasy" and "Poinciana" were both recorded live in 1967 but remained unreleased until now. Both songs are taken from the soon to be released 33rpm record titled "Live at Haight Levels" which includes more unreleased material as well as the full length version of both of these two edited tunes.This 7" runs at 33rpm to provide the best sound quality possible.

Keither Florence was born in Wichita, Kansas and is the proud father of six children. He has pastored The Greater Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Wichita for the past 30 years and he has always been musically inclined. At age 21 Keither rekindled his love for writing music. While attending Clark College in Atlanta, Georgia in the early 70's, he penned some of his songs which were later released on 45RPM single on his own label, Florence Records. The increase in his family size forced Keither to put his music plans on hold for the time being. Today, Keither Florence is singing professionally as a gospel solo artist. Feel free and check out his website at keitherflorence.comTramp Records has licensed another one of his songs titled "Down Here On The Ground for the 5th volume in the famed Praise Poems series. Around the same time an agreement has been made to re-release "Future" and "Free" on 45RPM single.For us, the one and only reason to re-release Keither Florence music was not for the money and not for being hip but the sheer quality of his recordings.

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.

The Jack Moss & Soul Injections 45RPM single re-issue is truly a very special release for us here at Tramp Records. Not only because of the sheer quality of the two songs to be found here (both soul AND funk 45 collectors will be more than pleased with it!) but for the fact that it is a joint venture of (most likely) Switzerland's #1 rare groove label Rocafort Records and Tramp.

The Soul Brothers Inc. hail from Houston, Texas and were likely one of the most important funk/soul groups in the city in the late 1960s until they broke up in the mid '70s. Tramp released The Story of the Soul Bros. Inc. in late 2010, now it is time to pick two lesser known songs for release on 45rpm single. Both sides are equally great, especially Put It On Him with its heavy drums and and wah wah guitar throughout the song.If you dig this 45rpm single release feel free and check the full-length album of the Soul Brothers Inc., released back in October 2010.

Born in Redlands, California in 1980, Marquis Howell grew up in a lovely way. Raised to appreciate hand-me-downs, secondhand goods & older influences, he started imitating Chuck Berry riffs on air guitar in elementary school to impress the girls.

Marquis took lessons at the local guitar shop and as often as possible he would practice 4 or more hours a day.Marquis first started collecting records at the age of 15. His first job was at an antique store with a section of records that set off the retro-active chain of events that would change his life, more or less. It started with a Johnny Cash record, Live At Fulsom Prison. Thru the route of early country music that led to Emmett Miller while Cliff Edwards was introduced by a friend with a bargain bin cd.

It all began with a licensing inquiry for a sister funk cut which we wanted to include on our deep funk comp titled "Feeling Nice Vol. 3". After the deal was completed producer Fred Forsh mentioned that the backing band of Nadine Brown's masterpiece "Leave Me Alone" had released a 45 themselves under their name Teakwood. After Mr. Forsh played us both sides we knew that this 45 would have to be re-issued. What was about to follow nobody of us ever expected. Mr. Forsh told us that Teakwood recorded almost a dozen of songs which were supposed to be released on a full length album. Forunspecified reasons the album was never released and it remained in the can for almost 40 years. Finally, we are very proud to announce the release of Teakwood's debut album "A Distant Star" in early 2017. Until then you have to be content with this 45 rpm single re-issue.

Finally here it is, and together with the b-side it is a monstrous double-sider which is looking for its equal.

It is more than astounding why this tune hasn't been resurrected for an ad for one of the many chain of fast food outlets. Although the original 45 is neither superrare nor expensive, "Finger Licken Chicken" is certainly one of the finest examples of Philly funk. It was originally released on Leoso but was re-released on the Yew label. Both sides were written bySonny Fultonwho teamed up withSandrafor a killer r&b-ish funk cut on the flip titled "Back Breaking Love".

Comes with full download code!The intelligentsia have been claiming it for quite some time, and now finally, after many petitions, demonstrations and protests, a tiny little record label from Germany has achieved what only Google and "troubleshooter par excellence" Angus MacGyver have ever accomplished: admission into the worldwide dictionary. "To Google" and "to MacGyver" will soon be joined by the newly coined verb "to Tramp". The term can be decoded as "to seek and find the seemingly hopeless" or "looking for something hidden", always connected with a positive output.For several years, gold seekers at the most humble and tiniest record label on earth (however certainly one of the funkiest!) follow their dedicated passion. Their brand new masterwork, Movements 8, focuses on rare privately produced american soul, jazz and funk, and proudly bears the title as the 8th volume in the Movements Series.It took long to find the original vintage records and master tapes, but it took even longer to find the musicians behind the recordings. It required painstakingly detailed work to get everything together. While other labels' compilation quality might wane after some years, getting further watered down as the volumes increase, and banking on the success of earlier releases, the Movements series is a positive exception. The people behind this series know how the wind blows, and will stop at nothing to provide music lovers, DJs, and collectors only sweetest fresh breeze of heretofore unheard and uncompiled masterpieces. Songs by Papa Albert French, Thyme, Kay Dennis, Joe Wilson, Ulysses Crockett, John Timmons, and all the fellow campaigners emphasize this statement. The detailed liner notes and unseen photographs complement the whole package. The staff at Tramp always produces albums from their compilation series' as if it were their last so that each record can be enjoyed in it's own right. That being said, you can trust that Tramp is already seeking "to Tramp" more gems like these for a 9th volume.

You know Soul Clap likes it funky, so of course we’ve been digging all the new funk music coming out recently. This interest motivated us in compiling "Tempo Dreams Volume 3" for Bastard Jazz Records. In doing so we were able to gather so many amazing songs that they didn’t all fit on the compilation. Now using this inspiration as an invitation to start a new series on Soul Clap Records we’re excited to introduce NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK.NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK is a colored 7” vinyl only series that features future funk from Soul Clap and our freaky friends from around the world. Inspired by labels we love like Cherries, Voltaire, PPU, Hot Shot & Omega Supreme, NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK pushes the boundaries of what funk music can be, while always paying homage to the roots.First in the series is a double A sider (aka music so hot we can’t choose!). On the A side is “Peep This”, a track we did with George Clinton/Funkadelic which features Crew Love members Nick Monaco and Greg Paulus along with G Koop!And do you remember "So Fine", the Paradise Garage classic by Howard Johnson? Well he’s featured on the B side’s “Slow Motion”, a collaboration with Bay Area innovator Brian Ellis’ Reflection project!

LP comes with a full album download code!Critics, reviewers and journalists watch out. These sales notes are so succinct that you may be finished reading them before you've even had the chance to skip to the second song (provided that you've listened to the opener in its entire perfection)!What sets one compilation album apart from the others? What makes a record label special? These are questions that keep us up at night here at Tramp and you are holding in your hands one of our 50 full-length answers. It's true that within the soul and funk scene rarity and obscurity commands attention but it's the quality and performance that keeps a selection on heavy rotation. Speaking of Tramp, and in particular of this final volume in the Santa's Funk & Soul Christmas Party (SF&SCP) compilation trilogy, Sean Delany and Jan Kohlmeyer did an incredible job compiling these tunes. They spared no pains digging up the rarest of the rare, and the best of the best Christmas funk you have (n)ever heard (and which has not been compiled anywhere else). Even with your impeccable music taste and your unlimited record-buying budget you will have a hard time getting your hands on most of these gems. What brings you all the money if something you want is never offered? For us it's the quality that counts and that's why you will find such artists as Sam Sweetsinger Bell, Joe Shinall, Cleveland Robinson, and Carol Ford to name a few on this album. Of course the rest of the tunes are no exception either.It fits like a glove that this third volume of SF&SCP is simultaneously the 50th Tramp Records album released. Since we are proudly independent and are not forced to act in the economic sense, and, like you, are music fanatics and die-hard record collectors, we at Tramp Records are still digging after more than ten hard-working years! It started out just for fun and it's our fans worldwide that encourage us to keep bringing the heat. As long as there is music out there that has the power to drop our jaws to the floor we will still be here - and, like Santa himself, we will work year-round to continue to deliver our funky Christmas miracles directly to your turntable. Merry Christmas!

J. Young recorded two 45rpm singles for James Reese' Najma label some time in the late 1960s. Both releases are extremenly hard to find nowadays, and even better, both are of sheer quality. Get this re-issue and save several thousand dollars which you would have to spend for original copies of these cuts. It's a good deal, really.

Hungary may be a small country but it punches above its weight when it comes to the funk! Formerly of the Eastern bloc, the cultural and musical heritage of this part of Europe is every bit as rich the likes of West Africa and as such it is a melting pot bubbling with rhythms and influences. Now imagine, if you will, some of this Eastern European brew sprinkled with a little bit of afro spice and then blended with a massive dose of classic heavyweight Stateside funk and you'll have some idea of what Dokkerman & The Turkeying Fellaz (D&TTF) are all about.

Lee Mitchell was born in 1939 and started out musically in local gospel groups. It was 1964 when he moved to California to try his hand at secular music. He and Los Angeles poducer/label owner J. R. Fulbright soon joined forces. Mitchell's second single for Fulbright titled "How Can You Be So Cold" is by far his finest recording. Backed with an impulsive funk instrumental, this 45rpm single re-issue is something which appeals to both soul and funk 45 collectors.

Our aim is to keep up with the quality of each release, a task which certainly does not get any easier as we step forward into the twenty first century.
