Funkadelic
Live – Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan – 12th September 1971

Goddamn: the fully-fledged Funkadelic ensemble captured live in concert in their early days.

Fiercely psychedelic f...view item »

The Nineteenth Whole
Smilin'

While this 1972 LP from short-lived Indianapolis group The Nineteenth Whole may not exactly be a household name, some big-hitters were involved in its creation.

Donald Austin
Crazy Legs

Crazy Legs is the only LP laid down by Memphis guitarist Donald Austin. Originally released in 1973, the record has become a highly sought-after work of golden-age funk.

Ceaser Frazier
Hail Ceaser!

Hail Ceaser! by Ceaser Frazier (yes, the 'a' and the 'e' are meant to be that way round) is one of those early-70s soul jazz records that collectors go ape for.

Mordicai Jones

Power-chord-originator Link Wray was a deserving legend of American guitar.

Steve Grossman
Some Shapes To Come

This is a quality slice of jazz fusion, recorded by Steve Goodman and his band in 1974. Goodman himself had played with Miles Davis, so he already had the inside track on high-end jazz fusion, and sidemen Don Alias and Gene Perla were right behind him. Some ...view item »
