APRIL'S POSITIVE ENERGY VOLUME 1 JUDE RECORDS 30.00 (SEALED)
It gives me real pleasure to be able to offer you this legendary album
at such a fine price, I've been
dealing records for many years now and opportunities like this simply
don't come along very often.
This is it, THE legendary release by Ronnie April's Positive Energy,
pressed by Ronnie on his own
Jude imprint and distributed only locally by him without success, leading
to the disappearance of all
but a few copies. An impossibly rare holy grail which has changed hands
in the past for as much as
£300! Mainly though, it simply never turns up and for the most
part remained unknown to most,
although "Snowflake" has been a stable of the jazzdance scene
for years and the track was even
bootlegged at one point. Imagine then, my pleasure at finding a box
of sealed original copies, a factory sealed box which left the pressing
plant in the Bronx over a quarter of a century ago and remained untouched
and unopened until now! We're talking serious sweaty palms here, people!
Most importantly, the music is amazing - composer, arranger, producer,
saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist, Ronnie April has performed with
many greats such as Tito Puente, Frank Foster, Nat Adderley, Lionel
Hampton, and Louis Armstrong, to name a few. Which, of course, explains
why his first solo release is such an assured one. With Brazilian jazz
dancer "Snowflake" remaining the star cut - a Joe Sample composition
combining strong samba rhythms with funk coupled with some very fine
sax and piano solos and swirling female vocals - this is one smoking
tune! There's a lot more to this album too, it has a really cool jazzy
disco sound which happens to be very much in favour today, a kind of
deep disco feel with strong jazz flavours and tons of female vocals/scats.
Think a jazzy, funky version of Milton Hamilton's 'My Love Supreme'
and that whole underground disco scene, and you've got the sound of
"Dancer's Theme" with it's great funky bassline, gliding keys,
flying horn solos and solid club groove! "Rasmonde" features
some really deep Rhodes grooving as does "Sure, Sure, Sure",
while "Diamonds For Ida" has a killer uptempo modal/scats
28 ANTHONY ORTEGA A DELANTO JAZZZ sold
Never heard of this Jazzz label, (must be rarrre.. !) In demand &

Mega-rare private issue Afro-carribean jazzy latin disco dynamite! Lots
of great tracks here, including
"Simbi", "Sambita", "Merci Bon Dieu" and
the highlight for me: "Diskette", a killer tune with deep,
deep interlocking bass & conga grooves plus awe-inspiring piano
riffs, it's a dancefloor bomb and has
a groove that just keeps on going!
1945 GIMMICKS! MUSIC IS WHAT WE LIKE TO PLAY POLYDOR(SWE) 35.00
Sweden's answer to Sergio Mendes coming through with the goods once
again on their super-funky
version of War's "Slippin' Into Darkness".

it baby! Blistering keys,
deep bass, heavy drums & horns, it's the afro-fusion experience
FAMILY VOODOO FAMILY SOUKOUS(FRA) sold

Rare West Indies Afro-funk recorded in France. Killer breaks mix it
free-flowing psychedelia and chants, crazy wah-wah licks and on point
keys. "Oh Kibino", "You're
Nice So Nice", "We Have To Build A Nation" etc!
1948 THE IMPOSSIBLES
STAGE SHOW.. IN HIS BEST SWINGING MOOD STAGE SHOW (THAI) sold
'The one with the
white cover and them standing in a line'. Might sound like the tag for
an episode of
'Friends', but using descriptions like this only underlines how RARE
a piece of vinyl can be
sometimes, where there's just so little info to go round. This is indeed
The Impossibles, as in the Thai
funk group who did a hot (pepper) album for Philips. This one, however,
is on a whole different level of rarity, seeing as it was only released
locally, with tiny (I've heard 100-200) numbers being pressed up for
the few Bangkok locals who bought vinyl at the time. The music's insane,
with hot funky versions of everything from "Funky Party" &
"I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Baby" to "Pick Up The
Pieces" & "Superstition", breaks, beats, the lot!
1949 SUE BARKER

475 SYLVESTER SYLVESTER AND THE HOT BAND BLUE THUMB 15.00
put together when still kicking around on Haight St., finding himself
and playing with
the Hot Band. Sylvester hadn't fully come into his own as an artist,
but the version of "Southern Man"
in funky rock style is killah! The album itself comes with a unique
'scratch'n sniff' flower on the front
and a full size poster of Sylvester!
SYLVESTER FANTASY sold
At one point in
the late-seventies, Sylvester really started to mature as an artist,
up with the Two Tons of Fun and (more questionably!), with Honey Records'
boss Harvey Fuqua. His
flamboyant, exhuberant nature and soulful gospel roots translate perfectly
on what is probably the
epitome of joyful abandon on record, with the full seven minute celebration
of life that is "Over & Over", soulful disco hedonism
at its finest!
THIS CLOSE TO YOU COTILLION (SEALED) sold

(on Billy Foster's own label) at a very nice price, as it usually goes
for at least double! Brilliant modern soul & boogie, with a nice
left-field jazzy touch in that indie vein and great female vocals by
Glenda Eskew & Brenda Marshall. "I Need Your Love" - is
probably the biggest cut on here, funky, funky soulful boogie! But there's
loads to choose from - check out the funky "Night Music",
squelchy synths and slap bass with female choruses and a bad ass boogie
beat! "Always On My Mind" - great mid-tempo floater, "City
Lights", easy hand-clapping vibe, uplifting instro jazzy theme.

San Francisco version of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, riffing
away in a stoner funk mode.
Lenny Williams sings lead vocals, and choice cut award has to go to
the brassy anthem "There Is
Only So Much Oil In The Ground", an uptempo funky club classic,
with a theme that is even
more relevant today than it was 30 years ago!
1922 ASHA PUTHLI
ASHA PUTHLI CBS(HOL) sold
Asha Puthli's first
album, from 1974, an excellent set of funky soul tunes, with backings
that are a
mixture of spacey electric, futuristic funk and organic feel. My personal
fave is the awesome take on
J.J. Cale's "Right Down Here", with that undeniably dope intro,
irresitibly danceable groove and her
unique, off-kilter vocals.

List 50 Latin Salsa Latin-Jazz Latin-funk!
2000 DANIEL LENCINA CANDOMBES DE VANGUARDIA FERMATA(ARG) sold
Superb release, so rare! This is a great example of how different styles
from around the world can
converge in surprising and successful ways. Includes the awesome "Negro
En Sol Menor" - here,
heavily percussive Afro-Candombe street rhythms meet a banging jazz
horn section, cue an
irresistible club burner, forged in Uruguay all the way back in 1966
but still sounding fresh today!
"Celestino", "Sapaluba" - smoking solos, fierce!
2001 GERARDO BATIZ AZUL CON LECHE PENTAGRAMA (MEX) sold
Mexican jazz piano wizard and the man responsible for such stunning
(and impossibly rare!) tunes as
"En Fa" delivers another couple of aces here, check out the
beautiful "Como Vuelo De Un Avestruz",
a hypnotic, swaying samba-jazz number with uplifting female vocals.
The flip features a driving
Brazilian jazz cut "El Minuto", with sparkling percussion
and horn solos.
2002 GERARDO BATIZ BUGAMBILIA PENTAGRAMA (MEX) sold
Gerardo's deft touch and imagination come into play for the samba-funk
tune "Menguere" which mixes the funky bass groove with scats,
jazzy piano and, as a flourish, a cool rhythm augmented by Gerardo himself
on steel drum!
2003 ISLA ISLA PENTAGRAMA ESP. (MEX) sold
Early project for main man Gerardo Batiz, and it's a really rare indie
production released only through
Pentagrama's special product division. Top quality, earthy, jazzy latin
sounds, with the strong melodic
content and songwriting that is Batiz's trademark, on deep tunes like
"Mali", "Kamusekele" and the

groovers "Yeya Son", "La 132", "Tambo Iya".
2007 LA REVOLUCION DE EMILIANO ZAPATA LA NUEVA ONDA DE DIMECA (MEX)
Mexican psyche-rock garage heroes were at an interesting transitional
point here, having decided to
take a radically new route. The year was 1975, and before they made
the definitive move into the (lucrative) ballads market, they first
decided to experiment with the 'new groove' and cut this cool album,
adding wah-wah guitar, congas and tasty horns to their all-new funky
mix. The result is a couple of latin-funk bangers - "Mujer Latina"
& the breakbeat-driven "Ella Tiene Eso", as well the superb,
uplifting folk-funk groove "You Are My Dream". Rare!
2008 PEACE AND LOVE PEACE AND LOVE DENVER (MEX SEALED) 20.00
Later issue of this rare piece, just managed to unearth a handful of
these! Far out Mexican latin-funk
with brassy intensity - "Latin Feelin". The absolute killer
is "We Got The Power" which bursts into life
with a piano/percussion theme which is then taken over by the larger
than life horns. This funky vocal
monster then builds up with layers of percussion, a breakdown, a change

into a celebratory climax with full horn section and batucada beats

limits of the bossa groove most successfully.
TAPAJOS/PEDRO DOS SANTOS VOL.2 TROVA(ARG) sold
Killer album recorded in Argentina in '72, featuring "Tornei A
Caminhar" great funky little floor filler,
unique in that it seamlessly laces a jazzy vocal bossa with a mean-sounding
brass section, as well as
providing a showcase for rhythm-master Pedro Dos Santos to unleash his
armoury. It may seem hard to believe when listening to this excellent
groove that the sounds originate
from all manner of humble household objects, including a matchbox, a
spoon and an empty can of

PLANET OLIVER'S PLANET ARIOLA(SPA) sold
Sometime back in
1979, a group of seasoned Spanish session musos and studio boffins decided
get together in the Belter & Sonoland studios (Barcelona & Madrid
respectively), pool their collective
talents and go all-out cosmic on us, leaving no synthesizer undamaged

of out there disco experiments, with several hitting the Euro bullseye,
funky cuts like "Mr.Sun" & "Dance Machine",
as well as the interstellar wonder that is "Planetarium".

a jazz album, recorded in 1968, with heavyweights like Larry Coryell,
and Roy Haynes. The album isn't easily pigeonholed however, with definite
psyche/rock leanings. The best tracks sound like an out there, funky,
modal Gabor Szabo - "Seymour Chick-Chick", "Gonna Get

Ouch! I guess these

2179 THE COL NOLAN SOUL SYNDICATE BUCKINGHAM PALACE AVAN:GUARD (AUS)
scarce release rumoured to be limited to 100 copies and sold only at
the venue. "Buckingham Palace" - cool'n groovy vocal scat-led
tune, with a deep Fender funk'n jazz groove, fat drums (killer breaks
as well!) and all the necessary ingredients to make this tune such a
great dancer. Recorded live at Sydney restaurant 'Jason's' which doubled
up as a part-time jazz venue; this 7" was sold to patrons of said
establishment, hence the extreme rarity! Includes their other big tune
on the flip - "What's The Use".
2180 KURRT WATKINS
AND THE MAGNIFICENT 6 SOUL MUSIC/BLUES FOR ALL PRIVATE ISSUE (THAI)
Yep - private issue Thai funky r&b/jazz single recorded in 1969
by a sax-totin' US serviceman named
Kurrt (extra 'r' probably courtesy of local friendly Bangkok printers).
"Blues For All" features a chugging organ groove & a dose
of Kurrt on sax.
TORDO CAI-CAI ZIP ZIP (PORT) 25.00
gatefold picture sleeve single! "Cai-Cai" features Fernando
Tordo in full
bossa-groove mode, a killer funky mid-tempo dancer which kicks off with
a cool, bass-driven beat, a
blast of horns and then picks up the pace, adding orchestral swells
that build with the increasingly urgent tempo and jazzy doublebass!
AND THE UPTIGHTS MONTEGO/TAURUS PALETTE(HOL) sold
double-sider from 1970 from this mysterious Dutch combo. Morton &
the Uptights were
an offshoot of the J.J.Band, led by none other than cult legend Scott
Bradford, and featuring Belgian
jazz great Philippe Catherine on guitar! The music is really amazing,
a mixture of Ska & jazzy soul with a groovy & funky latino rhythm
First up there's
"Montego" and what you get is a ska flavoured groove (written
Bradford) that sounds like the slightly demented lost Jamaican cousin
of Mulatu of Ethiopia, with a
really raw sound, pounding piano, great percussion & skanking horns.
Over on the flip, the hypnotic
"Taurus" awaits, same deal - Scott Bradford penned, but slightly
more laid back and very funky, a
steady, driving groove, brilliant eastern-hued horns and just a general
feeling of exotic wonder!
2183 SERGE GAINSBOURG
LE PACHA PHILIPS(FRA) 100.00
picture sleeve 60s soundtrack EP, this is always highly sought after,
not just for the infamous break on the dope "Requiem Pour Un C..",
here in its original release, but especially for the funky sitar freakout
that is "Psychastenie", what an unholy groove!
HINES YOU GOTTA LET GO WIZARD(AUS) 300.00
Considered to be
one of the rarest Australian soul/funk singles ever - this killer soulful
received an excrutiatingly limited release as a seven - no idea why
- as the album then went on to
achieve platinum status in Oz! There is also a very rare, later Italian
7" issue on Digit, but copies of this og Aussie issue never turn
up, and according to some sources, only a handful are known to exist!
2185 AQUARIUS Y LUIZ ANTONIO MADALENA/ROSA MORENA ARIOLA(SPA) 60.00
The legendary Brasil
Aquarius with their beautiful rendition of "Madalena", impossible

sleeve original issue single released in '73, taken from their wonderful,
mega-rare LP .
BELL & THE DRELLS APRIETA/MIL MARAVILLAS ATLANTIC (SPA) 150.00
(vg++ nice) So,
so rare and so collectible! This Spanish-only single features on its
b-side the unreleased alternate take version of T.S.U. Tornadoes "Thousand
Wonders" Ovide release (who in turn were the backing band on Archie
Bell's smash hit A-side track). How this unique 7" pressing came
to pass, I have no idea! Brilliant track, a must for fans of Northern
and a 100 percent certified floorfiller!
2187 THE BILALIAN
EXPRESS PHILLY/DISCO NIGHTS LK RECORDS sold
Oh yesss, this
is ROUGH! Killer funky disco/boogie from '76. The Bilalian's drop the
rudest bass a
booty can bear, all loose-limbed and raw with a great mid-tempo boogie
beat to match and languid,
fonky vocals. They get real dirty in the middle, with a squelchy Sly
inspired organ solo and a killer
breakdown towards the end, then a false ending, just to play with you
a little more! The flip is an ace
uptempo horn-led disco groover.
2188 LATIN BREED
MARANATHA GCP 75.00
Smokin' latin funk,
this is the version to go for, far superior to the more fusion influenced
Gallardo/Sol version. Here, it's fat breaks time, open funky drums,
great percussion and a wicked club tune!

AND THE FAMILY WHY I'M SO HAPPY LET 25.00
Two cuts culled
from the legendary super-rare indie Oakland funk/soul LP. Larry delivers
some of his
trademark laidback acoustic grooving abilities here, keeping it warm
& funky. The flip "My Mother's
Delight" is a sweet, airy, conga-driven folky gem.
2192 STEVE PARKS
SADNESS IN MY SAMBA REYNOLDS 25.00
(vg+ some clicks
on b-side) b/w "All In A Day" Both tunes written for "The
Golden Key", an album for
Reynolds which never saw the light of day. Eventually Parks re-recorded
them for his 'Moving In The
Right Direction" album several years later, with a fuller sound
than featured here, which is more
laidback, semi-acoustic, and very nice!

Davis and similar soul/disco tunes.

I am able to
offer a copy of : an original, real deal, Mexican promo 12" of
what is the most notorious all-time loft classic and a top 5 anthem
for some of the biggest NY DJs. Discovered at the time by David Mancuso
on one of his head-clearing jaunts across the border (Mexican RCA exec
gave him some 12" promos), it soon became one of the key tunes
of the era, being a specially extended disco version with a killer breakdown,
not available on the album or 7" -and not released elsewhere -
which explains why it quickly achieved such holy grail status on the
