Vibra 45 Trades
Atomic Rooster 'The Rock' (B&C)
An ultimate British break for sure.. banging open hip hop drums, funky organ, rawk guitar licks and wild brass. Dope.
The Symbols 'Again' (President)
Splendid Beatles-esque psych pop groover. Both this and the B-side '(The Best Part Of Breaking Up)' were comped on the 'Sometimes I Wonder: The Psychedelic Pop Sound Of President' CD.
The Supremes 'Bad Weather' (Motown)
Killer 70s funky soul co-written and produced by Stevie Wonder, as featured on DJ Spinna & Bobitto's 'The Wonder Of Stevie' comp.
Nature Zone 'Porcupine' (London)
Bubbly synth bass-led funky disco joint from 1976. About a porcupine, apparently.
Dave Mitchell & The Screamers'The Trip' (MET)[/B]
Black and silver label 70s 'reissue' of this heavy Northern/funky soul classic.
Lowrell 'Mellow Mellow Right On' (AVI)
Fabulous rare groove sound, sampled by Massive Attack on Blue Lines' 'Lately'.
People's Choice 'Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky' (TSOP)
Head nodding funky disco classic with a tasty break (sampled by Sidewinder on their 'Ego Riot' 45).
The Blossoms 'APB' (MAM)
Great funky femme soul disco from the one-time Tom Jones backing singers.
The Power Pack 'Hannibal Brooks' (Polydor) HOLD
Rare orchestral soundtrack 45 from Nick Ingman's outfit.
South Side Movement 'Can You Get To That'/'Mud Wind' (Wand)
Bumping 70s funk instrumental on 'Mud Wind'.
Merry Clayton 'Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow' (Ode)
I don't understand why I don't hear this played out more - really uptempo version with sparkly latin percussion, filthy bass groove, a heavy sax solo and Merry gets SERIOUS on those vocals towards the end.. really rather good.
Titanic 'Rain 2000' (CBS)
Percussive (natch) Malo-esque funky vocal latin rock track with cool organ.
Bloodstone 'This Thing Is Heavy' (Decca) HOLD
Psychy funk rock B side debating the merits of intaking psychoactive substances.. heavy.
Seven Seas 'Super Jaws!'/'Pat's Jam' (Glades)
Fat 70s funk instrumental on 'Pat's Jam' from this Clarence Reid alias.
Miami 'Kill That Roach' (Drive)
Classic rare groover.
