Chocolate Buttermilk Band

No Money - No Honey

For almost 5 decades, The Chocolate Buttermilk Band, led by Larry Akles, has been one of the busiest and most successful cover and backing bands in the Southern United States and has been touring as the Temptations backing band for years. While they're little known outside the region, their handful of singles from the early 1980s are, for record collectors, among the best and most desirable in modern soul and boogie funk. So what happened when the pandemic hit? Larry Akles got bored and decided to get the band back in the studio to record a new joint "No Money - No Honey". He actually thought about writing this song way back when serving in Vietnam…. The result is an infectious boogie funk tune that bring us straight back to the original Chocolate Buttermilk Band classic funk sound. Massive! On the B side, just for good measure we've added "Mr. LSD", another hitter from one of the rarest of the rarest 7" from the band. This Past Due Records release comes with a full sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. Don't sleep!

Horizon

Horizon - Magic Music : The Story Of Horizon (San Antonio TX, 1977-1984)

San Antonio, Texas has never been known as a hotspot for driving boogie/funk music and sweet modern soul. Nevertheless, Horizon, formed by the three Boggess brothers and Freddy Carrillo, had a five-year run of local fame in the early 1980s during which they consistently scored radio play on South Texas pop and soul stations, played large local parties, and even opened for the Commodores.

With only a handful of superb and very sought after private press 7" releases under their belt, Horizon managed to reach a cult status amongst funk and soul collectors worldwide. Jerome Derradji's Past Due Records is proud to release - for the first time on vinyl - "MAGIC MUSIC - The Story of Horizon - San Antonio, TX 1977 - 84."

This DLP gatefold compilation includes all the rare Horizon 7"s releases along with 10 previously unreleased songs! As always, the story of the band is written by Jacob Arnold with a superb artwork from Al Kent. Magic Music is also available on a digipack CD including a booklet and on digital format.

Arkansas native, Lee Moore moved to Memphis in 1975 with only one goal in mind: to make it big in the music industry and to release music that would be played in New York, L.A and everywhere in between.

As a singer and songwriter Lee Moore spent the 1980s collaborating in Memphis with the best of the best session musicians and vocalists from labels like Volt and Stax Records to record and release futuristic boogie, soul, and funk. Lee Moore unfortunately never got close to reach his goals of fame and fortune.

Lee's final project for the Score label is a bonafide underground Gospel burner. Originally released in 1989 it's a perfect look into his transition from the rougher edged Funk, Disco & Boogie of his earlier efforts and shows his smooth transition into a more celestial and blessed musical output. Again this one’s a real rarity and Past Due have secured this high quality, legit reissue for the heads.

Larry Dixon & LAD Productions Inc

Star Time

    For the past four decades, a growing cult of soul music collectors have sought two obscure LPs and a handful of extremely rare 45s released on the vanity record label LAD Productions, Inc. between the late seventies and the mid eighties by the mysterious South Side Chicago singer/song writer Larry Dixon. Larry's raw songs capture the transition from R&B to boogie-down as disco was rapidly becoming extinct. They also perfectly illustrate Larry’s ability to overcome his environment and discrimination, transcended by his determination to write and produce music. With the support of his faithful musicians, Larry's success was only hindered by lack of airplay and promotion, but his talent shines through. This is the story of Larry Dixon, his label LAD Productions, Inc., and his friends and family throughout four decades of music in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. Jerome Derradji is proud to reactivate Past Due Records - the boogie funk division of Still Music to release this fantastic archive – what many consider to be the Holy Grail - of Chicago Funk, Boogie and Soul. Each format includes a unique booklet with the story of Larry Dixon and his friends, written by Jacob Arnold, along with numerous pictures and documents previously never published. Artwork is by Al Kent from Million Dollar Disco.
