  1. Hard Times (0:30)
  2. Listen To Me (0:30)
Review: Powerful belters from soul supernova Baby Huey. The only solo 45s he cut for Curtom Records before he passed away aged only 26, this was released posthumously and OG copies regularly go for over 200 pounds. Now reissued on Soul Brother, the two sides give you the full fat Huey; "Hard Times" hits with a raw Lee Fields style gravelly, story-telling delivery while "Listen To Me" shows Huey's deft ability to band-lead an all-out rock jam. Raw and emotional, Huey left this world far too soon.

  2. Never Too Much (instrumental) (4:18)
Review: Athens Of The North is unveiling a whole wealth of new 7"s this month and as usual, each and every one is an essential purchase. This one in particular will resonate with a wide audience thanks to the ubiquity of the source material - Luther Vandross's 'Never Too Much.' There have been many versions over the years but this reggae take from Derrick Cross is special indeed, and an OG will costs basically too much for any sane person. Now a fully legit repress makes it accessible to all once more, and hurrah for that.

  3. Biddu Orchestra - "Voodoo Man" (instrumental) (6:13)
  4. Suna Yildizoglu - "I´m Gonna Dance" (unreleased Disco dub) (7:47)
Review: The Edit & Dub series returns for the first time in 2021, this time with a selection of reworks reportedly crafted by high-fliers Ron Basejam (as Ron's Reworks), Kon, the Owl and the Patchouli Brothers (the label doesn't state which producer was responsible for each edit, but don't let that put you off). The A-side sports two tidy, scalpel-style re-edits of dusty disco-funk cuts by Gino Dentie & The Family, with the EP opening revision of 'Movin' On' being arguably the pick of the pair. Things move up a notch on the flip, where a fine instrumental tweak of Biddu Orchestra's Italo-disco throb-job 'Voodoo Man' is followed by a terrific dancefloor dub of Suna Yidizoglu's 'I Wanna Dance', a boogie gem full of righteous bass and spangly synth sounds.

Review: Unlike its predecessors, the third and final part of Elements of Life's reissue of their 2013 double-CD Eclipse does not come on a 12" double-pack, but rather a double seven-inch. It contains some genuine gems from Louie Vega's disco/Latin/house fusion collective, starting with a suitably rousing, celebratory and mood-enhancing diso-boogie cover of Joubert Singers' classic 'Stand on the Word'. The EP also sports two other tidy covers - a rich, sun-splashed jazz-funk take on Stevie Wonder classic 'Pastime Paradise' and a lazy, hazy, carnival-ready interpretation of Brazilian standard 'Berimbau' - as well as a deliciously jazzy EOL original called 'Hot Music'.

  4. Bass Run (4:03)
Review: Louie Vega is one of the wonders of the natural world. He has been making timeless music for more than a quarter of a century and unlike many of his aged peers, he still very much keeps on knocking it out of the park. The fourth part of his Eclipse project with the Elements of Life crew is another golden one. 'Fantasy' (feat Melanin) is a soul drenched opener with broken beats and trademark instrumental flair. Things get deeper on 'Harlem River Drive' with its Latin flourishes before 'You Come Into My Life' is a gorgeous vocal cut with jazzy keys. 'Bass Run' is a shuffling, finger clicking, rump wiggling gem to close.

Who's Your Boss

Review: Greg Belson is a world leading gospel collector and DJ who had great success with his Divine Disco series. He continued his vital work with Cultures of Soul on the Devin Funk compilations series and now the label are serving up the many highlights on 7". Here we have
Pearl Farano & The High Lights Of Joy with 'Who's Your Boss', a high speed funk gem with in the pocket drum playing and energetic guitar riffs. The real star of course is the coarse vocal that cannot help but light your fires. On the flip, Zella Jackson's vocal soars next to summery flutes and raw, dense rhythm sections.

  2. Sweat Break (3:33)
Review: The superbly skilled studio technician J Rocc serves up more of his unmissable edits here. He takes on a stone cold classic A Tribe Called Quest cut 'Luck of Lucien' to open up with and amazingly offers it as an instrumental for the first time ever. The original track was played by the iconic Ron Hardy so J Rocc found it to make this similar edit. The busier, darker drums of 'Sweat Break' are just as essential on the reverse, making this another must buy volume of edits from this modern great.

Review: Matt Lord has been working on and off with the 2000 Black crew since the early 2000s, though it's only in recent years that he's stepped out of the shadows. He first officially collaborated with Dego on a joint EP in 2018, the rather fine One Way To Another, and here the pair reunite for another jaunt through jazz-funk-influenced EP rich in rubbery bass guitar lines, jammed-out keys, and on EP standouts 'Mandarin Delight' and 'Bee Side Inside', fizzing disco synths and guitars. Yet while those two flipside cuts draw heavily on disco and boogie for inspiration, the rest of the EP revolves around broken beats, with Lord and Dego adding their jazzy and funky touches to heavy bruk-up rhythms.

Review: Mr Bongo's Brazil 45s series is like catnip to all collectors of Latin music. It has turned out more than 85 editions that cover all forms of South American soul and funk. This time out it's a is sublime four-tracker from the much loved Brazilian pair of Luli Lucinha e O Bando. It first saw the light of day in 1972 but has long since been lost to the public. Aspects of psychedelic rock, MPB and folk are all stirred dup with the tunes being held together by Luli and Lucinha's vocals. The EP is packed with magic and musical brilliance and also features Brazilian percussionist Alyrio Lima, who was a member of the iconic Weather Report in later years.

Review: This limited edition 7" marks the first ever vinyl reissue of music by funk and soul greats The Perfect Circle. Their self titled LP is a real holy grail for collectors and now these two nuggets from it are going tone just as well received. The wax is lead by the disco-funk dancer that is the title track, with its high speed drum work and sleazy, almost Parliamanet-esque style vocal delivery. On the flip is 'The Hands of Time,' a more ass-shaking b-boy, disco and jazz-funk floor filler with standout horn leads and plenty of colourful Rhodes chords.

  1. Preacherman Isidore Womack - "I've Got Power In My Mind" (3:12)
  2. Allen Gauff Jr & His Combo - "I Don't Want To Be Alone" (5:13)
Review: Soon, Cultures of Soul will release Greg Belson's Divine Funk, the British record collector's latest deep dive into the world of vintage, gospel-influenced dance music. First, they're treating us to a series of sampler 45s featuring select cuts from the compilation. This one opens with Preacherman Isadore Womack's 'I've Got Power On My Mind', a laidback slab of lightly funky soul from 1978 featuring great guitar riffs and a simply superb lead vocal. It comes backed with 'I Don't Want To Be Alone' by Allen Gauff Jr and His Combo, a more up-tempo slab of gospel funk rich in righteous church organs, bongo-laced breakbeats and another impassioned lead vocal. Stellar stuff all told.

  3. Life (acoustic mix) (4:26)
  4. Life (Scrimshire remix) (4:55)
Review: Wah Wah 45s return to the world of reissues by offering up a fresh (and expanded) pressing of an overlooked acoustic soul gem from the early 1990s. SAM was a short-lived collaboration between singer-songwriter Sam Edwards and producer Alex Boyesen, who met while the was working for the Haringey Music Workshop community project, with the pair self-releasing a two-track single. You get both of those cuts here: the simply sublime, life-affirming acoustic soul-jazz brilliance of 'American Cars' and the even more jazzy 'Life', both of which feature staggeringly good lead vocals from Edwards. The EP also includes two fresh remixes: an extended, subtly beefed-up jazz-dance revision of 'American Cars' from Ashley Beedle's Afrikanz on Marz project, and a warming, colourful, synth-sporting take on 'Life' by Adam Scrimshire.

Took A Chance On Love
Cat: FL 012. Rel: 12 Apr 21
  1. Took A Chance On Love (3:14)
  2. Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (4:43)
Review: Satin Finish started out as a trio of Goldsboro musicians namely Donald Oliver on keys, Joe Exum on drums and Dennis Kornegay on bass. They were all scouted to the Greenback Records label out of New Jersey by two producers by the names of George Greene and Gary D. Jackson. High school graduate Karen Scott was the band's vocalist and here she does a fine job across a pair of stunning and spine tingling cuts of soul drenched, mid tempo disco funk. 'Took A Chance On Love' has great harmonies and dancing keys to get you moving and 'Didn't Wanna Lose Your Love' is the more sentimental slow song for smoochy moments.

Review: If you've ever been to a rare groove party - or a soul and funk one, for that matter - there's a fair chance you'll have heard Tommy Stewart's 'Bump & Hustle Music'. The song first featured on the American artist's self-titled debut album in 1976, but later became an anthem on the London rare groove scene. It remains an infectious, feel-good, life-affirming treat, with addictive female vocals, twittering flute motifs and much-sampled horn riffs riding a languid, rolling groove. Over on the flip you'll find another fine track taken from the same album: the sweeping, string-laden disco sweetness that is 'Fulton County Line'.

  1. Wish I Didn't Miss You (3:53)
  2. Wish I Didn't Miss You (remix) (4:19)
Review: Oooh! Angie Stone's "Wish I Didn't Miss You" definitely belongs in the canon of all time modern soul classics. Taken from her 2001 second album Mahogany Soul, the Swizz Beats produced track made optimum usage of an O' Jays sample and was instrumental in that LP going gold and propelling the former D'Angelo collaborator to stardom. It also inspired countless official and under the counter remixes with Blaze's perhaps the most recognisable. So yes this reissue on 7" from Outta Sight is worthy if you don't have the original in your collection and features a housed up remix from Hex Hector on the flip.

Sou Negro
  1. Toni Tornado - "Sou Negro" (2:21)
  2. Zeca Do Trombone & Roberto Sax - "Coluna Do Meio" (2:58)
Review: Mr Bongo offers up an incredible 86th volume in the Brazil45 series, and this time it's Black Rio funk from two mainstays of the sound, Toni Tornado & Zeca Do Trombone. A-side 'Sou Negro' is from Tornado's 1970 EP on Odeon Records. It's a sought after number that despite lasting only just over two minutes still makes an indelible impression. Zeca Do Trombone & Roberto Sax join forces on the flip for 'Coluna Do Meio,' which is a more smooth, easy going jazz laced tune compared with the raw and direct a-side. This one has an acrobatic vocal and sunny riffs bringing pool-side vibes under clear blue skies.

Review: Amazingly, this 7" from the Young Mods has never even been sold on Discogs, which is surely a mark of just how rare it is. The group was formed when Tommy Henderson came back home to Ohio from a tour of Vietnam. He hooked up with Carl Dronaugh, Raymond Smith and Ronnie Ditto and a host of other backing group members and had huge success with their first ever release. It sent them on a nationwide tour of the States and saw them open for the he O'Jays, Delfonics & Intruders. These two gorgeous soul numbers formed their follow up single. There was only ever more more official release after this, which is all the more astonishing given how good it is.

Review: Although her Afro Harping album might be more popular, legendary American harpist Dorothy Ashby's debut The Jazz Harpist is equally as essential. It was her debut record in 1957 on the Regent label and is a record which generally credits the Detroiter as being the first artist to translate harp to bebop and jazz in a real way. Traditionally more seen as an instrument associated with classical music, Ashby remove it from its genteel past and dropped it into a more modern and edgy context with stunning results. This glorious album is the best way to understand that transformation.

Mexican-American percussionist and former member of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Francisco Mora Catlett recorded the first of these albums as private presses in 1987. The follow up was with an expanded Detroit jazz brass section but was shelved for many years. Both are pan-American melting pots that stir up afro-cuban rhythms, fiery sambas, frenetic batucadas and much more which is why they have become such gold standard Latin jazz classics.

Review: Some serious gospel-soul action here from one of the most storied gospel groups in history, the Clark Sisters. The album, which was co-produced by their mother, the legendary choir director Mattie Moss Clark, first landed in US record stores way back in 1980. It's a stunning album all told, with the sisters' incredible vocals rising above backing tracks marked out by interesting arrangements, changes of mood and tone, and plenty of authentic soul and jazz instrumentation. The superb title track and the infections 'Ha-Ya (Eternal Life)' - the latter the subject of a number of re-edits over the years - are the best-known cuts, but other highlights include 'Pure Gold', the epic 'Speak Lord' and 'Salvation Means More To Me'.

Review: Originally released in 1977, The World Of The Children LP featured Shamek Farrah on production duties and alto saxophone, with special guest Sonelius Smith (of David Murray Big Band fame) on piano, in addition to Kiyoto Fujiwara and Milton Suggs on Bass, Freddie Wrenn on drums, Tony Waters on percussion and Joe Gardner on trumpet. An amazing session of free and spiritual soul/jazz that defines the essence of Strata-East - the legendary record label set up by Charles Tolliver and Stanley Cowell in 1971. Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London.

Review: Following 2014's When The World Was One, Halsall and the Gondwana collective continue their spiritual jazz adventure with another immaculate narrative. Now with much more vocal prowess, singer Josephine Oniyama plays a lead role in the story, adding consistency and personality to the Halsall's swooning, cinematic odysseys. Highlights include the Hathaway-style half spoken/half sung "Badder Weather", the frenetic double bass and brushed drum crescendos of "The Land Of", the (lark) ascending strings and oriental scales of "Cushendun" and the smoky, faraway Coltraneisms of the title track. Modern jazz doesn't get any more authentic than this.

Review: Vibraphonist Khan Jamal has made many fine albums over the years, though few are quite as revered within the jazz scene as Infinity, a self-released set from 1984 that has been near impossible to find for years. While Jamal's fluid and attractive vibraphone playing is given an airing throughout the album, it never dominates the sound space, with the storied members of his backing sextet - including scene legends Byard Lancaster (alto sax, flute) and drummer Sunny Murray - all being given a chance to shine. Musically, it sits somewhere between spiritual jazz, jazz-funk and Latin jazz, with hectic dancefloor numbers (see the superb 'The Angry Young Man') being joined by a wealth of deeper, more laidback compositions.
