RAIN & SHINE

Rain & Shine are proud to present, the first official reissue of this sacred slice of funk since it’s 1976 release. And with a median price of £228 on Discogs it’s about time us mere mortals had the chance of owning it.

Remastered and reissued with the original band members blessing, ‘Ain’t No Need’ has long been a favourite of the some of the most well-respected DJs across the scene, from Floating Points and Sadar Bahar, to Mr Scruff and Theo Parrish - with Theo even releasing a live cover version performed alongside his band on their 2014 tour.


Recorded in a basement studio in Deer Park, New York - 1980. Mixed Company’s ‘Let’s Go Disco’ is a relatively under the radar record, originally released on New York radio station WNBC 66’s compilation showcasing local talent. Thanks to meticulous archiving, Gene Lastorino was able to locate the original multi-track master tapes for the session which included a number of unreleased tracks. Gene also found lots of old photos and flyers, which you see grace the cover design courtesy of Charlotte McCrae.

Here, Rain&Shine present a 12” with the best unreleased tracks, edited for the dancefloor by Andrea Passenger. The original ‘Let’s Go Disco’ is of course included, along with a Waxist multi-track edit and a groovin’ Frank Booker instrumental mix.

New Horizon

True Love (Parts 1 & 2)

Not-for-profit label Rain & Shine likes to do reissues differently, offering all profits - rather than a percentage - to the families of the artists whose records they release. The latest artist to profit from their generosity is New Horizon, an act whose sole single - 1977's "True Love" - is here given the reissue treatment. The A-side "Part One" version is a wonderfully sweet and musically rich modern soul number that combines slick male vocals with subtle orchestration and loose, languid grooves. "Part Two" (side B) is a much more forthright version; a dancefloor-friendly take that combines a funkier, heavier version of the groove, twinkling piano lines, beefy bass and jazzy guitar licks with punchier drums and selected snippets of backing vocal.

1977, East Hartford, Connecticut. Rahni Harris, a 21 year old reverend and multi-instrumentalist, and his band, Family Love, were not afraid to embrace their love of R&B and gospel. They laid down "A Different Drummer" LP - one of the most forward thinking LPs recorded during this period and arguably of all time.

"Syncopated Love", "He’s My Friend" and "Make It Easy" have been supported by DJs and collectors in the know for many years. Now, Rain&Shine give Rahni’s’ seminal record another lease of life for discerned collectors, DJs and music lovers worldwide!

Remastered with full original artwork.



Tasty reissue of Steve Elliott’s first album - "True Image" (1981). After failing to find musicians with the same direction and devotion to music he had acquired, Steve taught himself to play eleven different instruments and move from hometown of Pasadena, California to Denver Colorado.

Eager to express his musical ability, Steve became a DJ on KDKO radio, and would then go on to compose, arrange and perform "True Image" on September 20th 1981 with a collection of drum machines, synthesizers, and contributing musicians on Rhodes, flute, guitar and vocals.

Mr. Elliott’s philosophy is 'You hold in your hand a dream, a dream come true by a man whose only objective was to express the love he contains, the love we all contain within through music.'

On many collectors want lists, passing for a median price of $450 online. 


Rain & Shine present in 45 format, "Pray Again" and "Give Your Best To The Master" two certified dancefloor cuts from Shirley Finney’s 1979 LP.

Rain & Shine give out a hefty holler of "Church!" and take us all a little bit higher with the first ever official re-release of The Nelson Family's Gospel classic from 1986. An enduring and seriously in demand LP, "Filled With His Spirit" is an essential purchase for any serious collectors of Gospel. Quality from end-to-end, the LP including the cuts "Thank You Lord" (firm favorite of Floating Points and Skymark), title track "Filled With His Spirit" and "Everlasting Love".
