  • Favorite Soul/Jazz/Funk/Library/Latin Compilations

    Ive picked up on collecting more comps lately, especially liking the Numero Group's sort of "theme-based" releases. They put a lot of effort into researching their stuff and also sharing the info be it by booklets, sheets or on the sleeves.

    Right now I'm trying to hunt down a reasonably priced copy of the Sunset Blue Note Trip comp, which got a re-release 3 years ago.

    What are you're faves in the above mentioned categories?

    Barry X from Add N To X did some great library comps. Probably long out of print.

    I ddid recently get the second numero Wayfaring Starngers comp which si pretty nice.

    TBH comps are probably regarded as a bit entry level by some around here, which is not to put them down but merely to say that its not where attention would be focussed as a lot of posters would be more interested in originals and the stories around those. Though in many genres its probably where a lot of people staretd their journey down the rabbit hole.
    Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

        I have a feeling we've done this before with comps in general, but:

        Jazz : Universal Sounds of America, the Eastern european ones that Comet(?) put out, Impressed 1 & 2, Shibuya Jazz Classics, Samurai Jazz
        Library : The above mentioned Barry X ones for sure. I picked up three volumes of a French series called La Guepe for peanuts ages ago which I enjoyed a lot.
        Latin : Broasted or Fried, and its follow up/predecessor. Can't remember the name ...

            Great,thanks Ian! This will keep me busy for a while.. The Nuggets of Funk Ive heard before, I will have to keep my eyes peeled for those mentioned in the previous posts. Sorry for double posting! Should have assumed this was not a new forum topic to you folks!

            And yes, it's kind of a stepping stone into the more rare groove arena, especially the Numero selections save me time and money to hunt down those gems, before looking for them out in the wild.

                Ah that's the one I was thinking of. Aren't there two volumes? One with a green cover as well?

                  I heard those comps way back. Had mentally written them off as being a bit too synth-heavy for me. Am surprised now to see some of the tracks on there.

                      I must confess I have sold most of my comps, but did end up buying some originals that I discovered through them.

                      Favorites would be

                      Mojo Club comps
                      Ouh La La Cosmogol comps
                      Latin Breakbeats, Basslines & Boogaloo Harmless comps
                      Wizzz! comps
                      The Big Cheese (12 Tasty Grooves)

                      I could go on, but you can't go wrong with the above

                          Just saw in my online vinyl booters newsletter the forth volume of the "Dramatic Funk Themes" comp being released.

                          http://www.hhv.de/shop/de/artikel/v-...olume-4-435133

                          Including the obligatory Keith Mansfield banger, this looks mighty tempting, will have to dig deeper now to find the library originals.. Highlight is the ORF (Austria's public television/radio) Big Band , followed by a killer opening break from Jacky Devenais that sounds so Pete Rock-Dilla'esque, too good to be true, rounded off by the smoothest thing from Bunny J. Browne.. Good thing the next big trade fair is up the weekend after next, although it will be hard to find any real bargains there on the library front I fear (One copy of the ORF joint available at Discogs atm for 500 EUR)..
