You (7")
Cat: ATH 039. Rel: 24 Nov 16
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. You (4:46)
  2. Space V (4:18)
Review: Christopher Sprains and The Strange Band recorded a whole heap of material in a hazy, drug-fuelled 19178, but their - surprisingly - never gained enough traction with the NYC disco crowd. Perhaps this work was too ahead of its time and, while it does share some qualities with the music of Rick James, it contains something dark, sexy, a little bit twisted and, of course, strange. The lead track "You" is a synth-heavy, electrifying boogie cut with a rugged percussion swing and an air of post-punk to its mix down, not to mention those utterly freaky vocals; our favourite, though, is actually "Space V", an insanely nutty electro cut that would have undoubtedly been on The Electrifying Mojo's playlist should it have landed on his lap. Totally recommended...

If You Dance Tonight (limited 7")
Cat: ATH 031. Rel: 26 May 16
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. If You Dance Tonight (4:46)
  2. Say Yea (3:49)
Review: Last spotted on AOTN in November 2015, DJ Fryer addresses the final two nuggets in Billy T'Spoon Bruner's short-but-perfectly formed with the final collection of tracks from Billy's own Oil Capital imprint. "If You Dance Tonight" is unashamed boogie fusion with fun lyrics and a slap bass line so rude it will make you blush. "Say Yea" is a classic 80s ballad delivered with Lionel levels of smoothness. A proper end-of-night, grab-your-coat gem. Limited to 500 copies, no represses.

  1. Satellite-Love (3:22)
  2. Branch-In-Out (3:20)
Review: This dinked 7" marks the debut of new Athens of the North offshoot Ocean of Tears, a label dedicated - in their words - to "deep ballads". In typical fashion, the imprint's first release is thrillingly obscure in origin; so much so, in fact, that original copies are even more rare than rocking horse droppings. "Satellite-Love" was Boston-based psychedelic funk man, Tri-Speed Moog Keytar Synthesizer inventor and one-time Original Black Sheep member Forest Terry's attempt at solo success. It flopped first time round, but is certainly a rare treat - all trippy lo-fi soul vibes, sweet guitars and suitably blazed vocals. There's a more up-tempo feel to flipside "Branchin' Out", which boasts wild guitar solos, Hendrix-esque vocals and bustlin' psych-funk rhythms.

Soul
  1. My Dreams Are Clouded (4:28)
  2. Don't Wait Too Long (4:16)
Review: A regular triple-figure fetch on the auction sites, it was only a matter of time before Henry Thomas & Rise's beautiful 80s soul doublet experienced the strong-armed justice of Fryer. Not just reissued but sourced and tracked down - this is just the start of what will hopefully be a whole load of criminally slept on and unreleased soul from Henry and his troupe. "My Dreams Are Clouded" is a verified club banger with its FM synth ripples and low-down bass bumps while "Don't Wait Too Long" is the ultimate come home record. Slinky, swooning and soaked in raw dollops of emotion - Henry Thomas is, once again, on the rise.

Funk
  1. Holding On (3:39)
  2. Dimona (Spiritual Capital Of The World) (3:38)
Review: Chop-walloping funk soul: AOTN bossman Fryer has allegedly spent the past 15 years trying to secure this '70s rarity. Silky, youthful and compounded with an insatiable groove, it's dangerously close to Jackson 5's best output and no one would blame you if you thought it actually was. Flip for "Dimona", a slower burner that swoons and shows the band's more mature side. This is the first time either side has seen a 45... You know what to do.

Making New Friends (limited 7")
Cat: AOE 005. Rel: 21 May 15
Soul
  1. Making New Friends (1:58)
  2. Trippin On The Sounds
Review: DJ Fryer's Athens of the North label continues its relentless charge the annals of funk and disco, focussing attentions here on the mid '70s debut of Jeanie Tracy. Glance at the discography of the Houston-born singer and you are presented with a storied recording career that includes credits alongside Bobby Womack, Aretha Franklin and Sylvester so it's little surprise to see that original copies of Making New Friends / Trippin On The Sounds rarely change hands below the $1000 mark. Originally released on Marvin Holmes' Oakland-based Brown Door Records around 1975, this Athens of the North edition is a must for any self-respecting 45 wielding selectors out there! The A-side is a recognised classic of the rare groove canon but it's "Trippin On The Sounds" that you need to hear; a glorious horn-laden deep funk nugget.

Reality (7")

Funk
  1. Reality (2:55)
  2. Dreams (3:47)
Review: A hot and steamy funk jam on the A, a swooning samba with a hectic climax on the B: dynamically this is pretty much the perfect 45 as it ticks all funk dancefloor scenarios. Sonically it's just as sweet with widescreen production, fireside harmonies and pianos that could meander on for days and you'd never get bored. Previously rarer than unicorn knickers, this Underground Resurrection re-release comes our way the same week as the Second Resurrection 45. AOTN are clearly working on biblical form right now.

It Takes Two (limited 7")
Cat: AOE 009. Rel: 14 May 15
Funk
  1. It Takes Two (2:03)
  2. Don't Be Surprised (3:06)
Review: Mid '70s deep funk and smouldering soul, Miami-style. Only laying down a handful of 45s during her career, Lynn Williams wasn't particularly prolific but what she did release has since become highly collectable with both of these sides fetching heavy triple figures over the years. "It Takes Two" is a sultry hip-strutting deep funk jam with a sleaze hanging off the groove while "Don't Be Surprised" is a much darker, barbed soul affair. A string-surged ballad, entrenched in authentic emotion; it's the female equivalent of Isaac Hayes's "I Can't Go To Sleep".
