3 Days Man
3 Days Man (12")
Cat: ES 020. Rel: 14 Oct 20
  1. 3 Days Man! (3AM mix) (4:03)
  2. 3 Days Man! (No People) (0:29)
  3. 3 Days Man! (Peewee Ferris & John Ferris extended mix) (5:55)
Review: While Andrew Weatherall was pioneering an indie dance cross over with Screamadelica, at the same town way down under in Aus, Sydney dance-funk combo Bellydance laid down their own blueprint. Mixing up street soul, funk and disco they were a collective featuring up to nine members and their best moment was this archetype end of the night send off. The glorious original is a high speed rollercoaster, the No People mix is a sax laced instrumental and the Peewee Ferris & John Ferris Verizon that closes out is a real joy with the chipmunk vocals and hands in the air pianos.

Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae (A Lingua Dos Anjos)
  1. Jorge Ben - "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae (A Lingua Dos Anjos)" (4:09)
  2. Cauby Peixoto & Jorge Ben - "Dona Culpa" (3:25)
Review: Mr Bongo's excellent Brazil.45 series digs deeper into the legacy of Jorge Ben, one of Brazil's most famous musical exports and an enduring samba king. Opening up is 'Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae (A Lingua Dos Anjos)' which was originally on his 1980 album Alo Alo, Como Vai? It's a modern sound, with disco inflections and big wind sections, but also some trademark Ben playfulness in the lyrics which speak of flying saucers and angels. O the flip, things slow down and get more steamy and sensuous on 'Dona Culpa' from his Cauby! Cauby!' album of the same year. Two sides, two styles, one irrepressible artist.

Black Caesar: 45s Collection
Black Caesar: 45s Collection (double 7" in die-cut sleeve)
Cat: DYNAM 7085/86. Rel: 12 Oct 20
  1. The Boss (3:12)
  2. Blind Man Can See It (2:37)
  3. Make It Good To Yourself (3:15)
  4. White Lightning (I Mean Moonshine) (2:38)
Review: Dynamite Cuts latest double seven-inch presentation takes us back to 1973, and James Brown's often-overlooked soundtrack to Blaxploitation crime movie "Black Ceasar", a set previously described by one critic as "a full-frontal funk attack". What we get is four of the soundtrack's strongest cuts: electric piano solo-laden funk shuffler "Blind Man Can See", one of Brown's most celebrated and best-loved songs, "The Boss" (sample lyric: "look at me, what do you see? A bad mother!"), the softly sweet, strings-and-solo laden breeziness of "White Lightning", and the crunchy heavy funk strut of "Make It Good To Yourself". As the old saying goes: all killer, no filler.

Hot Lovin'
Cat: DBS 1012. Rel: 12 Oct 20
  1. Hot Lovin' (Don't Stop, Don't Quit) (3:39)
  2. Shack Attack (3:20)
Review: More from the cheeky scamps behind the Disco Bits label, an imprint whose releases regularly blur the boundaries between re-editing, re-making and remixing. Here they welcome back imprint regulars Cannon & Mirrorball (we laughed, at least), who once again serve up two guaranteed disco floor-slayers. A-side 'Hot Lovin (Don't Stop, Don't Quit)' sits somewhere between disco-house and hip-house, with excitement-building raps lifted from vintage hip-hop cuts sitting atop a non-stop beat crafted from tooled-up elements from a celebratory disco favourite. As the title suggests, 'Shack Attack' cheekily blends elements from Banbarra classic 'Shack Up' and B-52s hit 'Love Shack', adding some other choice samples to create a tidy, well-made mash-up that sounds tailor-made for disco dancefloors.

Turned On To You (reissue)
Cat: EXPAND 121. Rel: 16 Oct 20
  1. Turned On To You (5:26)
  2. Sing Me (4:17)
  3. I Knew That Love (4:52)
Review: Denie Corbett, Marva Hicks, Susan Beaubian, Sylvia Striplin and Vivian Prince are Eighites Ladies, a vocal ensemble best known for their hit 'Turned On To You'. An iconic rare groove gem from the 80s, it has since been sampled any number of times by giants like A Tribe Called Quest. An edited version has been put out before on an Expansion 7" but an extended version has alway been sought after. Well, here it is along with 'Give Me Your Love', a solo tune from Sylvia. 'Sing Me' also makes the cut to ensure this soul gem is an essential pick up.

Slow Down
Slow Down (7")
Cat: MA 005. Rel: 14 Oct 20
  1. Slow Down (4:14)
  2. I Deserve A Little Bit More (4:34)
Review: Miles Away are always on a mission to unearth new old gems. Their tireless work now gives rise to a pair of big hitters from The Grooms, a band who only ever flashed this one single back in the 1970s. It came originally on a little-known label in Norfolk, VA headed up by Noah H. Biggs, called Shiptown, and was during the peak era of Motown, Atlantic and Stax. Thankfully the label boss saw its potential. The super charged 'Slow Down' on the A side is wrought with emotion and on the reverse is a more moody and heartfelt ballad called 'I Deserve A Little Bit More.'

Human Race (Record Store Day 2020)
Gem
Cat: 101. Rel: 13 Oct 20
  1. Human Race (3:08)
  2. Grey Boy (3:04)
Review: Little is known about Human Race and their mysterious, self-titled debut single, other than they were the house band at the Continental Club in Miami, Florida, during the late 1960s. Their sole single, which slipped out on a tiny label at the turn of the 70s, has long been sought after by collectors. Having first been reissued in 2002, it has now been given a fresh pressing. It's well worth picking up, not least for the languid and laidback title track, where scat-style vocals and glistening guitars ride a groove rich in deep, weighty bass guitar, shuffling drum-breaks and ear-catching hand percussion. As it did on previous releases, the track comes backed by an even slower, more laidback instrumental number, the sweltering, sax-laden soul sweetness of 'Grey Boy'.

Blue Monday
Blue Monday (7" + MP3 download code)
Cat: PARK 1031. Rel: 12 Oct 20
  1. Blue Monday (3:00)
  2. Bridge Over Troubled Water (2:46)
Review: Sometimes known as Park Rangers, Japanese outfit Inokashira Rangers are the world's leading purveyors of unlikely, Hammond-heavy reggae cover versions. Since first emerging five years ago, they've served up countless surprise reggae takes on tracks from the likes of Pharrell Williams, Nirvana, Sonic Youth and Underworld. Here they continue on a similar theme by re-imagining New Order's throbbing, surging dancefloor anthem 'Blue Monday' as a cheeky chunk of turn-of-the-'70s rocksteady goodness. As usual, the band's organist is in fine form, playing mazy solos that track the vocal melody found on Bernard Sumner and company's 1983 original. Over on the flip they serve up something slower and breezier: a languid rocksteady interpretation of Simon & Garfunkel's 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', this time utilizing plenty of Wurlitzer organ sounds. Ace!

A Chance For Hope (Record Store Day 2020)
A Chance For Hope (Record Store Day 2020) (limited 7") (1 per customer)
Cat: 7TS 5002. Rel: 13 Oct 20
  1. A Chance For Hope (5:44)
  2. A Chance For Hope (Prelude) (1:14)
Review: The Live Band, a disco-soul/jazz-funk outfit helmed by bassist and vocalist Kenny Chavis, released a swathe of singles and a sole album on The Sound of Brooklyn in the early 1980s. Perhaps their most potent track was 'A Chance For Hope', an emotive, two-part plea for change that opened their 1982 debut album. On this first ever seven-inch pressing the order of the tracks has been reversed, with the swelling, scene-setting orchestration and atmospheric field recordings of the shorter 'Prelude' version appearing on the flip. That leaves the main vocal version, a superbly soulful chunk of boogie-era dancefloor soul rich in addictive grooves, sweeping strings and eyes-closed vocals courtesy of Chavis, rightfully nestling on side A.

Summer Madness Part 1 & 2 (reissue) (gold vinyl 7" limited to 200 copies)
Cat: FUR 7377COLOURRE. Rel: 15 Oct 20
  1. Summer Madness (part 1) (2:58)
  2. Summer Madness (part 2) (2:37)
Review: Second time around for the Soul Surfers' superb cover of jazz-funk classic 'Summer Madness', which first hit stores in September 2019. This time round, it comes pressed on gold-coloured vinyl, though you'll have to act fast to secure a copy. It's worth doing just that though, because it sees the Californian act re-imagining one of the smoothest and most seductive cuts in the Kool & The Gang canon as a languid chunk of laidback instrumental soul complete with crunchy drums, elongated lead guitar solos and some suitably spacey analogue synth sounds. The luscious and lazy A-side version is backed by a 'Part Two' take that's a little more stripped-back, raw and heavy.

Alien Felines From Beyond The Galaxy
  1. Alien Felines From Beyond The Galaxy (5:54)
  2. Ekows (6:52)
Review: Afro-funk combo Supergombo previously impressed with a pair of sweltering albums, but it's been three years since their last essential audio missive. This return to action is therefore more than welcome. They're in fine form too, with brilliantly named A-side 'Alien Felines From Beyond The Galaxy' offering an excitable and smile-inducing fusion of spacey, far-sighted Moog synthesizer solos and the Lyon-based band's usual horn-fired, Afrobeat-inspired grooves. Flipside 'Flows' draws on Ghanaian Highlife influences as well as Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, with glistening Ebo Taylor style guitars, snaking sax solos and fiery horn motifs rising above another insatiably infectious groove. It's good to have them back!

Mystic Brew
Cat: VNG 002. Rel: 12 Oct 20
  1. Mystic Brew (part 1)
  2. Mystic Brew (part 2)
Review: Taken from a trio of 45s from the Vong45 record label, here the West Loop collective remake some of their favourite soul, jazz and funk tracks. This release in the series has West Loop remaking the original foundation to the A Tribe Called Quest masterpiece 'Electric Relaxation' - 'Mystic Brew' as recorded by Blue Note keyboard player Ronnie Foster in 1972. Featuring all live instrumentation including some fierce Hammond organ vamps, a deep rich bassline and a vibrant electric piano solo, West Loop revitalise the jazziness of the original on 'Part 1' but move into a funkier direction with 'Part 2' on the flip. Perfect 45 territory for the funk and hip hop DJs.

  5. Love Is Genesis (5:03)
Review: Not to be confused with the UK electrofunk act of the same name, Imagination was an obscure German jazz-rock band from Dusseldorf who recorded a series of rather good records in the late 1970s. Arguably their most celebrated release was debut album Shake It, a set that has now been given the 40th anniversary reissue treatment courtesy of the dusty-fingered diggers at The Artless Cuckoo. It's a fine collection of cuts all told, with highlights including the Steely Dan style AOR funk of 'Strawberry Whine', the similarly sunny, subtly disco-influenced 'California', the cosmic, flute-laden goodness of 'Can't Stand Without You' and the blue-eyed soul bliss of 'Clouds Free Before The Wind'. Throw in a trio of unheard demo recordings and you have an essential reissue of a long-overlooked album.
