Good God! Born Again Funk
A triumphant sequel to the Gospel Funk Hymnal, now on vinyl.



Light: On The South Side
Gorgeous and heavy-duty: a hardback of photos of mid-70s South Side Chicago clubland Kools, cars, sex, threads, booze, Pimp Oil with a juicy double-LP of funky blues. To Europe only; UK postage free.



Wayfaring Strangers Lonesome Heroes
Male folk singers mithering and dithering all the way from 1970 to 1983, very introspective, sombre, spare and intimate, most of it originally pressed privately, plenty of it beautiful and haunting.



24-Carat Black Gone: The Promises Of Yesterday
Hurt, disillusioned, beautiful, pure, sensuous Windy City soul music from the mid-1970s, never out before jazzy but street (like Donny Hathaway), musically sophisticated but emotionally straight (like Curtis). ...



Pisces A Lovely Sight
Previously unissued underground rock from 1969, Rockford, Illinois.



Eccentric Soul Smart's Palace
Drawing on Dick Smart's group of soul labels run out of Wichita, Kansas, from 1963-75 like Solo, Kanwic, Vantage and Lee-Mac.



Local Customs Downriver Revival
Gospel, group soul, garage-punk, northern, jazz and funk, recorded by Felton Williams between 1967 and1981 in Ecorse, just downriver from Detroit. Amazingly the DVD contains 200 more recordings, and a film.



Titan It's All Pop!
Wants-list power-pop, apparently, from Kansas City, thirty years ago, luxuriously revived.



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.



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.



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



Eccentric Soul The Tragar And Note Labels
Fifty recordings on Jesse Jones' twin labels out of Atlanta, between 1968-1977. Southern to northern soul, classic R and B to modern, dancers to romancers.



Cult Cargo Soul Messages From Dimona
Almost preposterous, this beautiful snapshot of a US expat community fetched up in Dimona, Israel, in the second half of the seventies, holding faith with its love of Chicago soul and spiritual jazz. Vinyl now too.
