Attitude Belief & Determination (remastered)
BBE
Cat: BBE 304SLP/T-1281. Rel: 20 Sep 19
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Attitude, Belief & Determination (10:00)
  2. Nonstop To The Top (5:59)
Review: There's no doubt that crate-digger, record collector and renowned Discogs seller Zafsmusic knows more than most about the world of private press vinyl releases. This 12", originally pressed up in super-limited quantities by its' creator, Martin L Dumas Jnr sometime around the turn of the '80s, has long been a must-have for collectors with several thousand dollars to spare. The title track is particularly wonderful - a warm, breezy, loose and fluid chunk of boogie-soul that Zaf has slightly tweaked to suit the needs of modern dancefloors. Flipside "Nonstop To The Top" has a more jazz-funk feel, with intergalactic synths complimenting Dumas Jr's sweet vocal and conscious lyrics.

The M+M Mixes Volume 2 Part B: NYC Underground Disco Anthems & Previously Unreleased Exclusive Disco Mixes
  1. Teddy Pendergrass - "The More I Get" (John M+M Get It All mix)
  2. Candi Staton - "Young Hearts Run Free" (John M+M Run Run Run mix)

  4. Inner Life - "Make It Last Forever" (feat Jocelyn Brown - John M+M original Forever 12' mix)
Review: The second vinyl sampler to accompany BBE's hook-up with disco legend John Morales is just as delicious as the first, with essential takes on classics from Teddy Pendergrass, Candi Staton, Loletta Holloway and Inner Life all worth investigating. If this isn't enough for you, be sure to check the comprehensive 18 track double CD compilation, also out this week.

The Sound Beyond Stars: The Essential Remixes LP 1
DJ SPINNA/VARIOUS
BBE
Cat: BBE 262CLP1. Rel: 12 Jan 15
Funky/Club House
  1. Karizma - "The Power" (DJ Spinna Acid Row mix)
  2. Bah Samba - "Moonlight" (DJ Spinna Galactic soul vocal)
  3. Angela Johnson - "Got To Let It Go" (DJ Spinna remix)
  4. Yvette Rovira - "I Remember Love" (DJ Spinna remix)
  5. Kerri Chandler with Harley & Muscle - "You Can't Lie" (DJ Spinna remix)
Review: Spinna's double-decade document on BBE is an essential lesson in the dark art of remix craft. And here are five perfect examples. His take on "The Power" by Karizma subverts from the off as we're washed with a waterfall of bitter sweet acid. The remix of Bah Samba's "Moonlight" shows Spinna at his most cosmic and reflective while "Got To Let It Go" is straight up jazz church music. Deeper again we find him in straight up bassline soul mode on the Wonder-esque "I Remember Love" while his take on "You Can't Lie", a hookup between Kerri Chandler and Harley & Muscle, is more street soul than it is house music. Truly timeless.

Taking Care Of Business
BBE
Cat: BBE379 ALP. Rel: 29 Sep 16
Funk
  1. Can You Feel It (6:12)
  2. Due Consideration (5:03)
  3. If We Took The Time (Where Do We Go From Here) (5:25)
  4. Due Consideration Interlude (3:09)
  5. Sweet Bird (5:04)
  6. What A Lovely Way To Spend A Lifetime (5:31)
  7. Samba De (7:44)
Review: Not just a super-rare set of dreamy soul jazz but also a neat piece of independent label history: JSR were a Jersey-based imprint with an open source attitude to their business, allowing ambitious young musicians their first break contract-free (albeit with limited pressings) In 1980 Coleman took them up on the offer, played most of the instruments himself and even designed the artwork: Taking Care Of Business is quite a literal title. It's literally brilliant, too; just check the Shuggy style vocal leans on "Due Consideration" or the swooning Roy Ayers style vibraphone magic of "Sweet Bird" and you'll see exactly what we mean. Stunning.

Houston Talent Expo '82
Houston Talent Expo '82 (gatefold 180 gram vinyl LP)
BBE
Cat: BBE 347ALP. Rel: 26 Feb 16
Soul
  1. Let's Get High (5:23)
  2. Love, Love (4:32)
  3. Chocolate Coated People Song (4:47)
  4. Funkathone (4:00)
  5. Why Do I Need An Education (3:26)
  6. This Song (3:34)
  7. Save Your Money (3:05)
  8. Stand Up For Jesus (3:53)
  9. A Song For The Children (7:00)
Review: The Houston Talent Expo '82 is one of those curious releases that has come out of a very special moment in time. Moreover, it's a one-off, a exception that came to be out of chance. The group was an extended collection of African-American in the Houston area throughout the 1980s, and this was their only release as a unit. "Let's Get High" sets the scene in perfect fashion, a funky, slow-motion groove with enough soul to kill the devil himself, but there's even gear for the diggers and samplers to salivate over. The absurdly good "Chocolate Coated People" drops a wonky, gritty slice of percussion over drugged-out melodies and a sea of funkiness. This is a truly special piece of music - don't miss it.

Time Is Wasting
BBE
Cat: BBE 372SLP. Rel: 08 Sep 16
Soul
  1. Love Flower (3:59)
  2. You're The One (3:58)
  3. Reach For The Sky (4:52)
  4. Time Is Wasting (3:51)
Review: There's a truly unique story behind this latest discovery from DJ Amir. Another great find from his Strata master tapes licence acquisition, TJ was written on the label of an undated, unmarked demo reel. No other information besides the beautifully raw soul on tape. Literally nothing is known about who TJ was (or were). Similarities with Shuggie Otis or perhaps Darondo are strong as the stripped back lightly treated guitars and his hazy, yearning vocal technique come on strong throughout. From the full bodied soul funk of "Love Flower" to the looped faraway harmonies and simple guitar backbone of "Time Is Wasting", the music is as strong the mystery itself. Beautiful.

Palaver
Palaver (gatefold LP)
BBE
Cat: BBE 511ALP. Rel: 10 Sep 19
International
  1. Palaver (6:15)
  2. Make You No Mind (3:54)
  3. Abebrese (5:31)
  4. Help Africa (6:16)
  5. Nyame Dadaw (6:59)
Review: The dusty-fingered diggers behind the BBE label have a reputation for unearthing obscure or unreleased gems, though we doubt that they've previously discovered anything quite as significant as this. Ebo Taylor, the undisputed king of Ghanaian "funky-highlife", recorded "Palaver" with his touring band way back in 1980, but for reasons the man himself can't even remember, Nigerian imprint Tabansi Records never got round to releasing it. That remains an odd decision, because "Palaver" shows Taylor at his very best, with the sax and trumpet-laden brilliance of "Make You No Mind" and the righteous, Afrobeat-influenced highlife brilliance of "Help Africa" being every bit as potent as the Ghanaian's most revered work.

Ozobia Special
Ozobia Special (180 gram vinyl LP)
BBE
Cat: BBE 507ALP. Rel: 01 May 20
International
  1. Ozobia Special (7:35)
  2. Ofu Obi (Onye Achuna Uwa Nike) (5:46)
  3. Osula Nwa Eje Ubi Eje Oba (7:25)
  4. Ije Eluwa (7:53)
  5. Akwa Obi (6:08)
  6. Egwu Oyoliba (6:20)
Review: Amongst highlife enthusiasts, Nkem Njoku & Ozzobia Sound's sole album is regarded as something of a classic, not least because of its party-friendly take on "Igbo highlife", a sub-genre of the Ghanaian style that utilises traditional Ogene 6/8 bell rhythms. The album's six tracks are infectious and wholeheartedly positive, with the assembled band - which included John Kante on guitar, a full horn section of boogie-era highlife keyboard maestro Jake Sollo - delivering instrumental backing tracks that ripple with colourful motifs, killer grooves and more than a hint of gospel righteousness. The title is certainly fitting, because it's a very special album indeed.

The Jupiter Effect
The Jupiter Effect (LP + insert)
BBE
Cat: BBE 627ALP. Rel: 15 Apr 20
Jazz
  1. Papa (6:25)
  2. Blues Are Dyin' (4:12)
  3. Nana (1:36)
  4. Looking (3:14)
  5. Who Conned The Lady (6:02)
  6. Oregon (3:57)
  7. Lucina (2:09)
  8. The Sand (5:26)
Review: DJ Amir has long been a fan of "The Jupiter Effect", the sole album by multi-instrumentalist Larry Rose and his backing band of Dutch and American session musicians, and it was on his suggestion that BBE put together this fully re-mastered reissue. The album was first released in 1978 - the year it was recorded in an Amsterdam studio - and offers a unique take on jazz-fusion that variously doffs a cap to smooth grooves, jazz-funk, Steely Dan, blues, Latin and Cajun rhythms and the hard-to-pigeonhole soul sound of Rotary Connection. It's a warm, attractive and hugely enjoyable collection of songs that have aged remarkably well, making this edition one of the reissues of the year so far.
