The Young Disciples The Young Disciples
Vinyl too! An early associate of Ray Charles and Ike Turner, Alan Merry ran his YoDi, Gateway and Merry labels like a kind of community youth project, in tough, late-sixties East St. Louis, Illinois.



Ada Moore The Devil Is A Woman
From the Chicagoan's 1955 ten for Debut, with Mingus, Tal Farlow and Oscar Pettiford tasty, low-down and bluesy in the style of Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday.





Candi Staton Who's Hurting Now?
'Early contender for 2009's album of the year. Yes, already' (Mojo). 'The sheer soul in her voice is revolutionary' (NME).**** The Independent, The Times. '**** a masterclass in gritty southern soul' (Daily Mail).



Eccentric Soul Twinight's Lunar Rotation
Even after various surveys over the years, a fresh, unmissable selection from this great Chicago soul label, with unreleased tracks. And now the vinyl, with 13 extras, their most beautifully packaged yet.



Wicked Witch Chaos 1978-86
Deranged funk from Washington DC, overdosed on Funkadelic, Hendrix and New York No Wave.



Funkadelic Toys
Half songs, half jams, all new out. The CD has a film of Cosmic Slop live (though everything else is raw Westbound vintage); five tracks only on the vinyl.




Sylvester Down Down Down
The flip of the reliquary original promo of Over And Over, as soulful and deep as any disco ever (and a Theo Parrish weapon). On orange Jazzman vinyl, b/w a terrific mid-tempo ballad featuring Jeanie Tracy.



Freak Life Goes On
Classic Miami soul, originally on Blue Candle, from this Jazzman imprint.



Brotherman Original Soundtrack
Great mid-seventies Chicago soul, the real deal. (The film never materialised.)



Reuben Wilson Got To Get Your Own
The Blue Note veteran funking it up for Chess with The Cost Of Living Pee Wee Ellis and co. Exhilarating protest music, and a cornerstone of the Norman Jay end of the rare groove spectrum, back in the day.
