Superb gospel soul funk lp released in 1973 on Savoy records!!

Under the direction of Dany Leake who worked later as a sound engineer with Terry Callier, Stevie Wonder, and Jerry butler, this solid lp contains a bunch of splendid tracks like the classic "no more city, no more country" and "Windy C." that remains me sometimes the Boscoe lp, "Windy C" was also sampled by St Germain for their third lp. Don't forget the soul funky cuts, "holes in my shoes" and "puppet on a chain", the mid tempo modern soul "you keep coming back", the X-over soul "my little someone", and the soulful ballad "don't let your pride, overpower your love"....

The Eliminators - Loving Explosion SOLD
Original 1st press of this sought after soul funk lp released in 1974 on Brunswick Records. One of the best funk lp on this label alongside with the exit 9. The Eliminators were a high school band from North Carolina who re-united some years later to create this amazing lp, their only lp!!!
Every track is a winner on this album. Listen to the raw funk cut "rump bump", the magnificent x-over soul "loving explosion", the funky "give it up" that reminds me Kool & the Gang, and last but not least, the instrumental deep funk psych track "get satisfied" with its great flute and fuzz guitar solos!!! The whole lp is incredible, an essential soul funk piece!!!!

Obscure private press from New York released in 1977. This lp moves you in so many way, a real oddity, a very interesting album!!!!
Listen to "handyman's back in town" with furious b-boy break, the strange cosmic funk "disco cosmic rhapsody" with cool synth works, funky drums and the x-over soul, "you got to feel it baby"!!
The record has a default on the track "night & day", there is little paper piece in the wax which makes a click during the end of the track but fortunately it's not a good one, otherwise the lp plays fine with no scuffs!!! The cover shows a little seam split (1cm) and a little tear on one edge!!!

This album is a bomb! Listen to the insane psych funk track "ego tripping" including some monster b-boy drum breaks, fuzz guitar, and terrific horn section. After comes the hysteric uptempo funky tracks "soul ain't no new thing" and "power to the people" with their open drum break, rolling bass line, and funky guitar...!!!

We are very happy to offer an original U.S. pressing of this very hard to find and highly in demand holy grail soul funk lp composed by The Chapparrals in 1978.
This obscure nine men combo from Atlanta deliver a heavy funk masterpiece including the killer downtempo hip funk track "Shake your Head" as well as the second part done more in a disco funk vein, my favourite track "Coming to you", the dance filler "Jam Around the World" and the instrumental funk "Juicy Fruit"!!!

Prophet - Right On Time SOLD
Original U.S. press!!!
Woww!!! This album is easily one of my favourite 80's funk lp!!! This obscure band from California delivers this fantastic outsider electro funk lp in the early / mid 80's, their sound is really unusual. They use the DMX drum machine, digital synthesizers, electric bass, and guitar!!!
The mix is dirty, a real diy production!!! The lead vocals are crazy, the destructured DMX programming and the synthesizers work are really fresh, weird and this combination give a real identity to their sound. There is also some cool funky bass and guitar lines!!! Check the soundclip!!! Peanuts Butter Wolf's favourite!!!
The record shows just some superficial marks but they don't affect the sound. I use a conservative grading, some seller can easily grade this copy EX. It plays excellent!!! Wear on two corners but nothing serious!!!
Newban - Newban 2 SOLD
Rare original press of the second lp from the soul funk band Newban on the desirable tax scam label Guiness Records from 1977.
Creative album from start to finish with a real positive vibe on each track. The horns' arrangements are crazy, the rhythm section is tough too, and the whole album is very well arranged!!! An essential lp for me!!!! Highly recommended!!
The record shows just two superficial marks but they don't affect the sound. The cover has a cut corner and a little split on another corner.
