  3. Albums you would like to see on CD

    I have a similar policy - either use the record label's own page or, if that's not available, an independent retailer where possible. Not difficult in the case of that Voices of East Harlem reissue Re Brenda Holloway: https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/...
  4. Albums you would like to see on CD

    This is all good. It's been years since Leroy Hutson's albums were reissued. As for Kent, they're trying to bankrupt us all Soulmusic.com has a twofer of Willie Hutch coming soon: https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/havin-a-house-party-making-a-game-out-...
  5. Albums you would like to see on CD

    That's an interesting comp, if a bit disappointing for anyone who's already been on the case with CTI/Kudu reissues. Much of it has been reissued before, and there are parts of the CTI catalogue that have been done to death since the late 80s whereas others, ...
  6. Poll: DJ Playlist - Worthwhile?

    Second that ... it would be interesting to compare lists from either side of the Atlantic, and what sort of influence these might have on each other. Isn't FB more about broadcasting than listening, anyway??
  7. Albums you would like to see on CD

    Amen to that. Dee Edwards needs little introduction on here, but her 2 LPs on Cotillion are probably overlooked to some extent. The second of these, produced by Michael Zager in 1980, is probably the stronger one (not what I would have predicted), whic...

  9. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Beats Björk! Another unusual feature of this period aside from the number of commercially successful flute players crossing over (Hubert Laws, Dave Valentin, Bobbi Humphrey) was the violin of Noel Pointer, who recorded several albums and floor fillers, i...
  10. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    This was a b side to the 1976 single by Sound Experience, "Where has your love gone", recorded after they left Philly Groove: reminds me a lot of the kind of stuff Sonny Lester was producing with Jimmy McGriff at the time (see earlier posts):
  11. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    According to Kev Roberts' liner notes for the excellent "Workin the Modern Room" compilation from 2001, this 1978 tune by Flashlight crossed over from the jazz funk scene to some northern floors - with a production like this, no wonder:
  12. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    "Roomful of mirrors" is another great track from that LP. That Hiroshima track reminded me of the flood of Japanese jazz funk imports that came into the UK, largely thanks to Tony Monson I believe. It seems there was no shortage of appetite for JF out th...
  13. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    The Record Shack, where Shakatak supposedly got their name - also see Nigel Wright's name on the label (their producer). The Touchdown track sounds similar to the kind of underground stuff Patrick Adams was doing at the time, at least to these ears. Anot...
  14. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Late 70s/early 80s, when I was just entering my teens. I should of course add the likes of Radio 1 shows of the time (Al Matthews, Alexis Korner) and the "soul" shows of local radio, which in the Glasgow area at the time meant listening to "Mr Superbad" on Ra...
