McFadden & Whitehead 1979 front

In 1979 the famous Sound of Philadelphia of Sigma Sound Studios threw up this delicious album of funky disco. The big hit was Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now, a mid tempo dance number with lovely interplay between the male...

A stone killer from funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey – one of her early albums for Blue Note Records, and a set that’s a perfect summation of the best sides of her talents! The album’s got a slightly different...

A “holy grail” album. Early early work from Lee Fields – a set originally issued at the end of the 70s, but with a raw funky power that’s much more like music from a decade before! The set was...

Honey & The Bees love front

Considered as one of the “Holy Grails” of female black soul albums, the scarcity of the album outweighs the less than 29 minutes contents easily. This is kind of like listening to a 60’s girl group artifact (The Supremes...

the-entertainers-1983-front

HMC Rare Private Modern Soul,  Hard-To-Find LP. Wonderfully groovy soul from The Entertainers – a group who’s recording here strongly for the beach music scene in the Carolinas, but who have an appeal that’s much more universal! The tunes...

Penny Goodwin Portrait Of A Gemini front

A legendary bit of jazzy soul recorded by Penny Goodwin, an obscure female singer from Milwaukee. Penny has a warm style that is pretty darn nice on its own, but it’s made even better by the great arranger Richard...

Wee ‎ You Can Fly On My Aeroplane

Fantastic lost gem from the late 70’s.  Sexy as hell. Scoring the lives of small-time players, pimps, junkies, and prostitutes lurking around his simultaneously blessed and cursed existence, Wee mastermind Norman Whiteside lived in an entirely different Columbus than...

????????????????????????????????????????????????

While Arthur Alexander made a name for himself as a songwriter and vocalist in the early ’60s, he was best known for the hits other folks had enjoyed with his songs (among them the Beatles and the Rolling Stones),...

Cloud One Atmosphere Strut front

 The studio-bound disco unit Cloud One made its debut in 1976 with the spectacular “Atmosphere Strut,” a drifting, blissed-out nugget of underground disco that featured a repeated female vocal refrain of “We’re gonna fly/Fly away.” More importantly, what made...

ofege 1973 try and love front

The ultimate in West African psychedelic funk. The first of their kind, Ofege was a band of college students from St. Gregory’s College, in Lagos, Nigeria. I read somewhere that they were “influenced by Nigerian bands BLO, The Funkees...

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul Front

Although the first track comes off as derivative of early ‘70s James Brown, this album is symbolic of the straight, tight funk that defined the early ‘70s. The only difference is that this album is more-or-less unknown even in...
