    This Detroit outfit never got their big break & judging by this smoking slab of prime funk, it's a complete mystery how success eluded them. Oozing with the very same kind of grooves found in class acts like Brick, Slave, Cameo & the Kay-Gees, this album explodes from the opening salvo & never relents until the fade of the final cut. Packed with snappy bass lines, rubbery vocals & punchy guitars, "Shotgun" cruises along at a generally restless pace & leaves the listener satisfied in the end. How these boys never made the big leap is beyond me.

    Some superb deep soul from Darrell Banks, one of the better late-'60s stylists, especially on ballads. This was one of two tremendous albums issued featuring Banks' dramatic, gospel-tinged wailing.

    This is @320 rip from my original volt lp. Extremely rare, never issued on cd.

    Just seven singles and two LP's ... Read more »

    What can we say about the personality of this woman, when two of the greatest artits of all time (Mick Jigger and David Bowie) wrote two of their best songs for her?

    She made Jagger weak at the knees "Brown Sugar" she hitched up with David Bowie and that "Lady Grinning Soul" was in honour of her allure the foxy funky diva that she was "PHEW"!!

    David Matthews - 1977 - Dune
    CTI 7-5005

    Funky spaciness from one of the 70's best arrangers! The set's a largeish orchestral work dedicated to Dune and other sci-fi books and films. Sounds goofy, but it's pretty darn great -- and Dave Matthews takes his work with James Brown and makes the whol ... Read more »

    This is a hidden cult classic on Stax.

    How this title managed to get buried so deep inside of the Stax catalog of classic material I don't know. What I do know that is Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth easily holds company with some of the better know heavyweights of Stax Records lore (Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes etc).

    Uptempo soul and funky southern grooves - a beautifully-chosen batch of tracks from the legendary SSS family of labels - and one that stands as a nice contrast to some of the other collections of work from the company's late 60s roster! SSS is probably most famously known as home to some great ballad and pop soul material from the south, but the company also had a great run of funky 45s during the same stretch - singles that kicked up the groove a few more notches, and came off with a rough edge and plenty of grit in the mix! There's a deep deep sound here all the way through - making the package a non-stop romp through some plenty great music pulled from labels that include SSS International, Silver Fox, Exit, and Honor Brigade. ...

    Solo debut by Brazilian genius. A member of the Brazilian arts movement known as Tropicalia, Caetano Veloso crafted a pioneering mix of bossa nova, American folk, and psychedelic pop.

    It was requested and here it is @ 320.

    A severely underrated player during his lifetime, Grant Green is one of the great unsung heroes of jazz guitar. Like Stanley Turrentine, he tends to be left out of the books. Although he mentions Charlie Christian and Jimmy Raney as influences, Green always claimed he listened to horn players (Charlie Parker and Miles Davis) and not other guitar players, and it shows. No other player has this kind of single-note linearity (he avoids chordal playing). There is very little of the intellectual element in Green's playing, and his technique is always at the service of his music. And it is music, plain and simple, that makes Green unique.
