Mutiny
A Night Out With The Boys

Mutiny are a funk group led by Jerome Bailey. Bailey is a funky drummer who made his way up from a number of R&B groups of the 1970s to become an integral part of Parliament and Funkadelic. ‘A Night Out With The Boys’ was Mutiny’s third album and was originally released in 1983. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue of this stone-cold funk classic.

Bubbha Thomas
Life & Times...

Following his passing in March 2020, Tidal Waves Music issues ‘Life & Times…’, the 1985 album by Houston jazz icon Bubbha Thomas, on vinyl for the first time. While he was most famous for his work with The Lightmen, this Thomas solo album is a goldmine of funky grooves, breaks and soulful vocals.

Ofege
The Last Of The Origins

Nigerian rockers Ofege get another of their classic LPs reissued on Tidal Waves Music. 1976’s The Last Of The Origins built on the success of their debut album Try And Love, fusing psych-rock grooves with Lagos funk fire in a manner reminiscent of their heroes BLO and The Funkees. This one’s been pretty rare up until now - indeed, this is the first time the record has been put on wax since the ‘70s.

Chet Baker
Mr. B

Talented but troubled trumpeter Chet Baker had something of a career renaissance in the late '70s and early '80s culminating in his now classic 1984 album Mr B. It featured tracks written by the likes of Herbie Hancock and Dave Brubeck performed by an ageing Baker and his stellar band resulting in a deeply touching album that would end up being one of his last. This reissue includes two bonus tracks.

Norman Feels
Where Or When

The gloriously-named Norman Feels was an underground soul singer from the 1970s who released a couple of albums on Just Sunshine - the same label that brought you Karen Dalton and Betty Davis. 'Where Or When' was released in 1974 and was slightly more accessible than his previous self-titled debut. The record showcases Feels' warm voice and trademark jazzy arrangements. Not to be missed.

Melvin Sparks
I'm Funky Now

Melvin Sparks was a jazz, soul, blues and funk guitarist who has played with pretty much every notable performer from each genre - BB King, Little Richard, Curtis Mayfield, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Idris Muhammad to name a few. His lost 1976 album I’m Funky Now is the point where he enhanced his funk credentials, making some very danceable music. It was originally released in 2017 on CD, now we have the vinyl version.

Arica
Heaven

Established as a human potential movement group - me neither - in the Sixties by Chilean philosopher Oscar Ichazo, and now known as the ‘Arica School’, back in the early Seventies this was a musical collective known as Arica who released a handful of striking albums. ‘Heaven’, released in 1973, was one of these, and this set of dissonant, free-form jazz is now reissued via Tidal Waves Music.

Ofege
How Do You Feel

Ofege began in early 1970s Nigeria smitten by the twiddly likes of Santana and Jeff Beck. How Do You feel was their fourth album originally released in 1978 and was seen as the high point in their career cementing their West African psych funk sound but blending it with reggae and disco. They have gained increased exposure over the years through appearances on compilations so this luxury re-issue of this Afrobeat classic is rather timely.

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. Having regularly fetched three-figure sums on the vinyl black market since its release in 1972, it now gets the reissue treatment from Tidal Waves Music, a label that has also repressed rarities by Nina Simone and Manu Dibango. The six tracks here, all led by Frazier’s hot-fingered Hammond playing, are funkier than a mosquito’s tweeter.

The Real ShooBeeDoo
Reminiscing

The Real ShooBeeDoo has got to be one of the best every names taken on by a musician. Real name Reggie Fields, ShooBeeDoo was a fixture of Detroit's jazz scene through the 70s and 80s. Reminiscing, which was first released in 1981, is a brilliant jazz album, brought together by Fields strangely lyrical singing.

Malaku Daku
Love Drums From The Ghetto

Love Drums From The Ghetto by Malaku Daku is an afro-funk rarity. Malaku Daku, a percussionist from Philadelphia, uses the drums for deeper meaning. In the west, drums are just about music. In African society they mean much more - from the ritualistic to the spiritual to communication and passion. You can feel everything going on in these grooves.

The Jimmy Castor Bunch
It's Just Begun


Exile One
Exile One

In 1970 Gordon Henderson moved to Guadeloupe to pursue a career in music. By 1973 he'd started his own back, Exile One. This reissue on Tidal Wave Music, of their 1974 debut, shows off the band's ability to mix together funk, soul, reggae, calypso and Haitian music. The result is fun as hell and demands that you get up and dance.
