1827 RONNIE APRIL'S POSITIVE ENERGY VOLUME 1 JUDE RECORDS 30.00 (SEALED)


It gives me real pleasure to be able to offer you this legendary album at such a fine price, I've been
dealing records for many years now and opportunities like this simply don't come along very often.
This is it, THE legendary release by Ronnie April's Positive Energy, pressed by Ronnie on his own
Jude imprint and distributed only locally by him without success, leading to the disappearance of all
but a few copies. An impossibly rare holy grail which has changed hands in the past for as much as
£300! Mainly though, it simply never turns up and for the most part remained unknown to most,
although "Snowflake" has been a stable of the jazzdance scene for years and the track was even
bootlegged at one point. Imagine then, my pleasure at finding a box of sealed original copies, a factory sealed box which left the pressing plant in the Bronx over a quarter of a century ago and remained untouched and unopened until now! We're talking serious sweaty palms here, people! Most importantly, the music is amazing - composer, arranger, producer, saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist, Ronnie April has performed with many greats such as Tito Puente, Frank Foster, Nat Adderley, Lionel Hampton, and Louis Armstrong, to name a few. Which, of course, explains why his first solo release is such an assured one. With Brazilian jazz dancer "Snowflake" remaining the star cut - a Joe Sample composition combining strong samba rhythms with funk coupled with some very fine sax and piano solos and swirling female vocals - this is one smoking tune! There's a lot more to this album too, it has a really cool jazzy disco sound which happens to be very much in favour today, a kind of deep disco feel with strong jazz flavours and tons of female vocals/scats. Think a jazzy, funky version of Milton Hamilton's 'My Love Supreme' and that whole underground disco scene, and you've got the sound of "Dancer's Theme" with it's great funky bassline, gliding keys, flying horn solos and solid club groove! "Rasmonde" features some really deep Rhodes grooving as does "Sure, Sure, Sure", while "Diamonds For Ida" has a killer uptempo modal/scats feel... Phew!!


28 ANTHONY ORTEGA A DELANTO JAZZZ sold


Never heard of this Jazzz label, (must be rarrre.. !) In demand & yes, very rarrre private press deep jazz from '75. Anthony Ortega played sax on such classic dates as Mannix, Mission Impossible etc Dig the funky jazz of "A Delanto" and flute-driven, airy groove on "Capricorn".

was known for sometimes performing piano concerts totally naked! Here, he is fully clothed and
playing as a duet with piano and electric piano vs Klaus Weiss on drums. Gatefold issue.

CASBAH RECORDS List 50 Soul/Funk Soul/Funk Soul/Funk!

 

1944 HENRI-PIERRE NOEL PIANO PRIVATE (CAN SEALED) sold

Mega-rare private issue Afro-carribean jazzy latin disco dynamite! Lots of great tracks here, including
"Simbi", "Sambita", "Merci Bon Dieu" and the highlight for me: "Diskette", a killer tune with deep,
deep interlocking bass & conga grooves plus awe-inspiring piano riffs, it's a dancefloor bomb and has
a groove that just keeps on going!


1945 GIMMICKS! MUSIC IS WHAT WE LIKE TO PLAY POLYDOR(SWE) 35.00

Sweden's answer to Sergio Mendes coming through with the goods once again on their super-funky
version of War's "Slippin' Into Darkness".


1946 KIS RAKFOGO FUSTI BALOGH KREM(HUN) 40.00


Fierce afro-funk, Mombasa-style, recorded in Hungary? You better believe it baby! Blistering keys,
deep bass, heavy drums & horns, it's the afro-fusion experience "Kemenysepre"!

1947 VOODOO FAMILY VOODOO FAMILY SOUKOUS(FRA) sold

(vg/vg plays nice) Rare West Indies Afro-funk recorded in France. Killer breaks mix it up with
free-flowing psychedelia and chants, crazy wah-wah licks and on point keys. "Oh Kibino", "You're
Nice So Nice", "We Have To Build A Nation" etc!

1948 THE IMPOSSIBLES STAGE SHOW.. IN HIS BEST SWINGING MOOD STAGE SHOW (THAI) sold

'The one with the white cover and them standing in a line'. Might sound like the tag for an episode of
'Friends', but using descriptions like this only underlines how RARE a piece of vinyl can be
sometimes, where there's just so little info to go round. This is indeed The Impossibles, as in the Thai
funk group who did a hot (pepper) album for Philips. This one, however, is on a whole different level of rarity, seeing as it was only released locally, with tiny (I've heard 100-200) numbers being pressed up for the few Bangkok locals who bought vinyl at the time. The music's insane, with hot funky versions of everything from "Funky Party" & "I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Baby" to "Pick Up The Pieces" & "Superstition", breaks, beats, the lot!

1949 SUE BARKER SUE BARKER CREST INT.(AUS) sold

Phew! Rare, actually - very rare these days - essential slab of indie soul jazz from Oz. Absolutely smoking version of Curtis's "Love To The People", stone groove and gorgeous vocals - you need this!

475 SYLVESTER SYLVESTER AND THE HOT BAND BLUE THUMB 15.00

Early release, put together when still kicking around on Haight St., finding himself and playing with
the Hot Band. Sylvester hadn't fully come into his own as an artist, but the version of "Southern Man"
in funky rock style is killah! The album itself comes with a unique 'scratch'n sniff' flower on the front
and a full size poster of Sylvester!

1932 SYLVESTER SYLVESTER FANTASY sold

At one point in the late-seventies, Sylvester really started to mature as an artist, successfully teaming
up with the Two Tons of Fun and (more questionably!), with Honey Records' boss Harvey Fuqua. His
flamboyant, exhuberant nature and soulful gospel roots translate perfectly on what is probably the
epitome of joyful abandon on record, with the full seven minute celebration of life that is "Over & Over", soulful disco hedonism at its finest!

484 LUTHER THIS CLOSE TO YOU COTILLION (SEALED) sold

Last copy! Sealed original issue of this awesome rare soul classic!

1919 BILLY FOSTER & AUDIO S/T EQUISTAR (SEALED) sold

What a great find! Managed to get my hands on a handful of sealed original copies of this beauty, so I'm offering this rare private issue soul LP from Indiana (on Billy Foster's own label) at a very nice price, as it usually goes for at least double! Brilliant modern soul & boogie, with a nice left-field jazzy touch in that indie vein and great female vocals by Glenda Eskew & Brenda Marshall. "I Need Your Love" - is probably the biggest cut on here, funky, funky soulful boogie! But there's loads to choose from - check out the funky "Night Music", squelchy synths and slap bass with female choruses and a bad ass boogie beat! "Always On My Mind" - great mid-tempo floater, "City Lights", easy hand-clapping vibe, uplifting instro jazzy theme.

1921 TOWER OF POWER URBAN RENEWAL WARNER BROS. sold

One of the tightest early albums from Tower Of Power, with that funky choppy groove that feels like a
San Francisco version of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, riffing away in a stoner funk mode.
Lenny Williams sings lead vocals, and choice cut award has to go to the brassy anthem "There Is
Only So Much Oil In The Ground", an uptempo funky club classic, with a theme that is even
more relevant today than it was 30 years ago!

1922 ASHA PUTHLI ASHA PUTHLI CBS(HOL) sold

Asha Puthli's first album, from 1974, an excellent set of funky soul tunes, with backings that are a
mixture of spacey electric, futuristic funk and organic feel. My personal fave is the awesome take on
J.J. Cale's "Right Down Here", with that undeniably dope intro, irresitibly danceable groove and her
unique, off-kilter vocals.

1923 DELEGATION DELEGATION II MERCURY 20.00

Great funk'n boogie business on this tricky to get LP from '81, includes "Feels So Good", the sizzling,
horn-laden party classic "Singing" etc!

broke-down, junkyard-synth, just-can't-stop, call-the-cops madness!

1925 AUBREY MANN FEELING GOOD SCORPIO(CAN) 30.00

precede the understated rhythm and intimate vocal stylings, with a groove that just builds and builds in intensity.

1934 BOHANNON SUMMERTIME GROOVE MERCURY sold

He went from griity gospel soul to plodding one-trick disco pony, so this set is perfect for catching him
in that transitional phase, when the grooves were fully formed but not over-cooked, and magnificent
they are too! Pulling together a series of irresistible disco rhythms with the organic, soulful feel
stemming from his Georgia gospel roots, resulting in the uplifting, anthemic dancefloor smashes "Let's Start The Dance" and "Me And The Gang", "Summertime Groove" etc!

Brazilian jazz cut "El Minuto", with sparkling percussion and horn solos.

Early project for main man Gerardo Batiz, and it's a really rare indie production released only through
Pentagrama's special product division. Top quality, earthy, jazzy latin sounds, with the strong melodic
content and songwriting that is Batiz's trademark, on deep tunes like "Mali", "Kamusekele" and the
standout for me, "Rupesh" - rippling piano riffs, sweet flute and humming chorus.

take a radically new route. The year was 1975, and before they made the definitive move into the (lucrative) ballads market, they first decided to experiment with the 'new groove' and cut this cool album, adding wah-wah guitar, congas and tasty horns to their all-new funky mix. The result is a couple of latin-funk bangers - "Mujer Latina" & the breakbeat-driven "Ella Tiene Eso", as well the superb, uplifting folk-funk groove "You Are My Dream". Rare!


2008 PEACE AND LOVE PEACE AND LOVE DENVER (MEX SEALED) 20.00


Later issue of this rare piece, just managed to unearth a handful of these! Far out Mexican latin-funk
with brassy intensity - "Latin Feelin". The absolute killer is "We Got The Power" which bursts into life
with a piano/percussion theme which is then taken over by the larger than life horns. This funky vocal
monster then builds up with layers of percussion, a breakdown, a change in tempo.. excellent!


2009 LOUIE RAMIREZ A DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLACK COTIQUE(SEALED) sold


Wicked, very effective Nuyorican latin-jazz set from '76, best known for the super-funky latin disco
version of "Do It Anyway You Wanna" - an essential club spin!

2010 ANDY HARLOW LA MUSICA BRAVA VAYA(SEALED) sold


Great latin set from '74, quintessential sounds from the one and only Andy Harlow - there's also a
secret weapon tucked away at the end of the b-side, the latin-jazz club bomb "Batumbique" - samba
rhythms, whistles, a voiceover detailing the various nuances of the rhythms and it all explodes
into a celebratory climax with full horn section and batucada beats - parrtay!


2011 DE KALAFE DE KALAFE PALACIO(VEN) sold


Mega-rare Venezuelan release from this psych/garage female singer, who ditches her rock baggage
and explores her roots instead, serving up along the way what is one of the best ever versions of "Ye
Me Le". It's a blinding take, a dancefloor cert with exhuberant vocals and rootsy acoustic stylings
backed by a deceptively tough rhythm section, plus horns, swinging percussion, the works!


2012 MARQUEZ PA-CA HISPAVOX(SPA) sold


Double-rare Spanish original issue on Hispavox, crazy demand for this very fine slab of latin-funk with
all the awesome tunes, including the club classic "Melao" etc!

1195 LES CHAKACHAS ESO ES EL AMOR RCA(FRA DBL) 25.00

(vg+ small sticker tear front cover) Confusingly, The Chakachas also released a single isssue LP with
the same title, another double LP also with the same title, and this one, provisionally titled for the

Different and original sounding fusion with strong jazz and latin elements, the standout track is
"Negreta 'Sabrosona' ", an intense number which features extended jazz guitar work a la Wes
Montgomery over a sweet, fast but subtle latin refrain. Over on the flip there's a similar thing going on
in a much more spaced out way with "Ecos Cosmics", dedicated to Lonnie Liston Smith.

1177 JAYME MARQUES EN DIRECTO RCA(SPA DBL) 75.00

BACK IN STOCK! His rarest LP by far! They didn't press too many of these because back in those
days a double LP retailed for double the price, see? Which is a pity, because it's right up there with
his finest work - there's that highly infectious funky samba "O Sapo" - essential club dynamite! For

lovers of jazz-samba, "Quintessencia" is one to cherish, plus there's loads more inc. "Abre Alas" etc

2056 SEBASTIAO TAPAJOS /PEDRO DOS SANTOS S/T TROVA(ARG) sold


Buenos Aires, 1972 and these guys were on fire! Pedro Dos Santos never ceases to amaze with his
percussive ingenuity and rhythmic flair, together they explore the outer limits of the bossa groove most successfully.

2057 SEBASTIAO TAPAJOS/PEDRO DOS SANTOS VOL.2 TROVA(ARG) sold

Killer album recorded in Argentina in '72, featuring "Tornei A Caminhar" great funky little floor filler,
unique in that it seamlessly laces a jazzy vocal bossa with a mean-sounding brass section, as well as
providing a showcase for rhythm-master Pedro Dos Santos to unleash his extensive percussive
armoury. It may seem hard to believe when listening to this excellent groove that the sounds originate
from all manner of humble household objects, including a matchbox, a spoon and an empty can of
deodorant...

2058 LITO NEBBIA CANCIONES PARA CADA UNO VOL.1 DIORAMA (ARG) 25.00

Mixing pop and jazz sensibilities, the album includes a track which was recorded with the US market
in mind, and which results in a mad, off-kilter jazz-dancer with brazilian rhythms, rousing, soulful
vocals and cosmic-tinged Rhodes, synth & Arp lines going off on top!

2059 VARIOUS/ARTISTS SUCESSOS ZIP No4 ZIP(PORT) 40.00

1449 ARENA ARENA CRYSTAL CLEAR (AUS) 200.00

awesome version of Ennio Morricone's "Metti Una Sera A Cena", the original is a beautiful slice of
orchestral bossa with wordless vocals and this version does it justice!

2078 OLIVER'S PLANET OLIVER'S PLANET ARIOLA(SPA) sold

Sometime back in 1979, a group of seasoned Spanish session musos and studio boffins decided to
get together in the Belter & Sonoland studios (Barcelona & Madrid respectively), pool their collective
talents and go all-out cosmic on us, leaving no synthesizer undamaged in their quest for the universal groove. The result is a collection of out there disco experiments, with several hitting the Euro bullseye, funky cuts like "Mr.Sun" & "Dance Machine", as well as the interstellar wonder that is "Planetarium".

2099 SOLA SOLA RCA(MEX) 80.00

Big tune alert! "Tabu Tabu" kicks off with a cool conga beat set against a deep grooving bass, the
horns come in, subtly at first, then building in intensity, the background singers start to hum the title
and Mexican female rebel singer Sola breaks in, letting loose with a strident vocal lead as the tune
bumps along in latin-funk, club-pleasing "Jungle Fever", kind of way. Rare!!

2100 JOHNNY GUITAR BANGKOK BY NIGHT SUPANAHONG (PHIL) 90.00

Ultra-rare and collectible 60s surf/beat from Thailand.

Check out "The Rose & The Lily" - a skippy, jazzy vibe featuring latin percussion, samba beats
mixing it up with tight sax solos and flute melodies, topped by Johnson's jaunty vocals. Left-field
dancefloor grooves recorded in Georgia for indie German label CMP. These things happen all the time, honest!

(autographed copy) Spanish-only jazz-funk led by legendary drummer Pepe Sanchez and a band of
latin brothers including Tito Duarte, Ebano, plus Pedro Iturralde blowing the house down on tenor sax. Strings, brass and synths for the disco-influenced bomb "Love Me", equally good is the Rhodes/sax drenched mid-tempo jazz/funk cut "Signo De Cancer".

"Uptown Dance".

2108 ARNIE LAWRENCE LOOK TOWARD A DREAM PROJECT 3 20.00

Strictly speaking a jazz album, recorded in 1968, with heavyweights like Larry Coryell, Richard Davis
and Roy Haynes. The album isn't easily pigeonholed however, with definite psyche/rock leanings. The best tracks sound like an out there, funky, modal Gabor Szabo - "Seymour Chick-Chick", "Gonna Get Some Right Now" and a mad "Feeling Good".

2122 TONY OSBORNE LENNON & McCARTNEY GO LATIN REDIFFUSION (UK) 15.00

Ouch! I guess these projects made sense to someone at the time, but really, orchestral versions of
the Beatles, latin-style? Hope someone at Rediffusion got fired for dreaming up this 'concept'. But hey, people really dig that afro-cuban congas-meets-"Eleanor Rigby" groove - so, there you go..

2179 THE COL NOLAN SOUL SYNDICATE BUCKINGHAM PALACE AVAN:GUARD (AUS) 300.00

Believe! Ultra scarce release rumoured to be limited to 100 copies and sold only at the venue. "Buckingham Palace" - cool'n groovy vocal scat-led tune, with a deep Fender funk'n jazz groove, fat drums (killer breaks as well!) and all the necessary ingredients to make this tune such a great dancer. Recorded live at Sydney restaurant 'Jason's' which doubled up as a part-time jazz venue; this 7" was sold to patrons of said establishment, hence the extreme rarity! Includes their other big tune on the flip - "What's The Use".

2180 KURRT WATKINS AND THE MAGNIFICENT 6 SOUL MUSIC/BLUES FOR ALL PRIVATE ISSUE (THAI) 60.00

Yep - private issue Thai funky r&b/jazz single recorded in 1969 by a sax-totin' US serviceman named

2181 FERNANDO TORDO CAI-CAI ZIP ZIP (PORT) 25.00

Mega-rare Portuguese-only gatefold picture sleeve single! "Cai-Cai" features Fernando Tordo in full
bossa-groove mode, a killer funky mid-tempo dancer which kicks off with a cool, bass-driven beat, a
blast of horns and then picks up the pace, adding orchestral swells that build with the increasingly urgent tempo and jazzy doublebass!

2182 MORTON AND THE UPTIGHTS MONTEGO/TAURUS PALETTE(HOL) sold

Rare! Brilliant double-sider from 1970 from this mysterious Dutch combo. Morton & the Uptights were
an offshoot of the J.J.Band, led by none other than cult legend Scott Bradford, and featuring Belgian
jazz great Philippe Catherine on guitar! The music is really amazing, a mixture of Ska & jazzy soul with a groovy & funky latino rhythm section.

First up there's "Montego" and what you get is a ska flavoured groove (written by Scott
Bradford) that sounds like the slightly demented lost Jamaican cousin of Mulatu of Ethiopia, with a
really raw sound, pounding piano, great percussion & skanking horns. Over on the flip, the hypnotic
"Taurus" awaits, same deal - Scott Bradford penned, but slightly more laid back and very funky, a
steady, driving groove, brilliant eastern-hued horns and just a general feeling of exotic wonder!

2183 SERGE GAINSBOURG LE PACHA PHILIPS(FRA) 100.00

(Ex+/vg++) Mega-rare picture sleeve 60s soundtrack EP, this is always highly sought after, not just for the infamous break on the dope "Requiem Pour Un C..", here in its original release, but especially for the funky sitar freakout that is "Psychastenie", what an unholy groove!

2184 MARCIA HINES YOU GOTTA LET GO WIZARD(AUS) 300.00

Considered to be one of the rarest Australian soul/funk singles ever - this killer soulful dancer only
received an excrutiatingly limited release as a seven - no idea why - as the album then went on to
achieve platinum status in Oz! There is also a very rare, later Italian 7" issue on Digit, but copies of this og Aussie issue never turn up, and according to some sources, only a handful are known to exist!

2185 AQUARIUS Y LUIZ ANTONIO MADALENA/ROSA MORENA ARIOLA(SPA) 60.00

The legendary Brasil Aquarius with their beautiful rendition of "Madalena", impossible to find picture
sleeve original issue single released in '73, taken from their wonderful, mega-rare LP .

2186 ARCHIE BELL & THE DRELLS APRIETA/MIL MARAVILLAS ATLANTIC (SPA) 150.00

(vg++ nice) So, so rare and so collectible! This Spanish-only single features on its b-side the unreleased alternate take version of T.S.U. Tornadoes "Thousand Wonders" Ovide release (who in turn were the backing band on Archie Bell's smash hit A-side track). How this unique 7" pressing came to pass, I have no idea! Brilliant track, a must for fans of Northern and a 100 percent certified floorfiller!

2187 THE BILALIAN EXPRESS PHILLY/DISCO NIGHTS LK RECORDS sold

Oh yesss, this is ROUGH! Killer funky disco/boogie from '76. The Bilalian's drop the rudest bass a
booty can bear, all loose-limbed and raw with a great mid-tempo boogie beat to match and languid,
fonky vocals. They get real dirty in the middle, with a squelchy Sly inspired organ solo and a killer
breakdown towards the end, then a false ending, just to play with you a little more! The flip is an ace
uptempo horn-led disco groover.

2188 LATIN BREED MARANATHA GCP 75.00

Smokin' latin funk, this is the version to go for, far superior to the more fusion influenced Joe
Gallardo/Sol version. Here, it's fat breaks time, open funky drums, great percussion and a wicked club tune!

2191 LARRY T AND THE FAMILY WHY I'M SO HAPPY LET 25.00

Two cuts culled from the legendary super-rare indie Oakland funk/soul LP. Larry delivers some of his
trademark laidback acoustic grooving abilities here, keeping it warm & funky. The flip "My Mother's
Delight" is a sweet, airy, conga-driven folky gem.

2192 STEVE PARKS SADNESS IN MY SAMBA REYNOLDS 25.00

(vg+ some clicks on b-side) b/w "All In A Day" Both tunes written for "The Golden Key", an album for
Reynolds which never saw the light of day. Eventually Parks re-recorded them for his 'Moving In The
Right Direction" album several years later, with a fuller sound than featured here, which is more
laidback, semi-acoustic, and very nice!

In demand Bay Area funk on indie imprint Pashlo, both cuts in a heavy funk vein.

anchoring down the brassy licks, handclaps, cowbells and chants - parrrty!

2197 J.J.'s DILEMMA BOW DOWN TO THE DOLLAR/INDIAN THING RCA(SPA) 15.00

Two great tracks here - Inventive & groovy, psychedelic with a good dollop of trippy jazziness thrown in for good measure, "Bow Down" is a rousing call to arms!

on one of his head-clearing jaunts across the border (Mexican RCA exec gave him some 12" promos), it soon became one of the key tunes of the era, being a specially extended disco version with a killer breakdown, not available on the album or 7" -and not released elsewhere - which explains why it quickly achieved such holy grail status on the disco scene!

1878 LA TOYA JACKSON STAY THE NIGHT/CAMP KUCHI KAIA POLYDOR (LTD EDITION) 20.00
