Mike James Kirkland
Hang On In There


His 1972 masterpiece for his brother's Bryan label. The first three songs the entire LP side are unmissable. The title track is life-enhancing slinky and grooving, profoundly inspirational and oppositional.

Geater Davis Lost Soul
Wonderful, tortured, bluesy soul in the great tradition of Bobby Bland, recorded at the start of the 1970s for Allen Orange's House Of Orange imprint out of Birmingham, Alabama.

Ivan 'Boogaloo' Joe Jones Sweetback
Notwithstanding all eight of his fine Prestige albums, this 1975 Joka is the guitarist's most in-demand, arguably his funkiest, with the extra few years bringing added rock and soul, a bit more urgency.

Mike James Kirkland Don't Sell Your Soul
Everything by Mike And The Censations plus a few unreleased specials prior to MJK's solo LP Hang On In There in 1972. More than 50000 singles sold at the time; Curtis liked them enough to offer a deal.

Mighty Ryeders Spread The Message
Rodney Matthews' Florida eight-piece late-seventies jazzy funk and spiritualised soul in the manner of Earth Wind And Fire best-known for the rare-groove classic Evil Vibrations, as sampled by De La Soul.

Betty Padgett Betty Padgett
Sunshine disco and soft reggae from CAT-era Florida.

The Pharaohs Awakening
Rowdy 1971 scorcher after the original sextet swelled to an orchestra by enlisting Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble (and before the horns joined Earth Wind And Fire) crashing Sun Ra into the new funk.

Tommy Stewart
1976, the early days of disco-funk, and already one of its cornerstones: Bump And Hustle Music, just scraping into the tracklisting. That vocal hook is Isaac Hayes' backing singers, Hot Buttered Soul.

Arthur Verocai
Wonderful 1972 LP. 'I used to listen to Blood Sweat And Tears, Chicago, Stan Kenton, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Webb, Frank Zappa, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Milton Nascimento, Bossa Nova, among others.'

Harry Whitaker Black Renaissance
The pianist genius arranger behind We Live In Brooklyn Baby, Jagger The Dagger, Feel Like Makin' Love with Azar Lawrence, Woody Shaw, Buster Williams and co in 1976. Heavy, modal, soulful, ace.
