Pete Rock

80 Blocks Instrumentals

    Pete Rock, whose production work helped define the 90s “golden age,” is a rare exception; Rock’s one of the few musicians who made his name in the aggressively unflashy 90s East Coast sound and managed to stay continually relevant without capitulating to changing tastes. 80 Blocks from Tiffany's offered proof that amidst the expeditions rap music’s launching into new sonic territories like EDM, noisy psychedelia, and quasi-industrial music, the classic boom-bap stuff still has a place. 

    Earl White Jr

    Very Special Girl / Never Fall In Love Again

      Re-issue of an extremely now rare 45 from 1977 that sells for £1,000 if you can find an original copy. The release is one of only two releases for the Cygnet label recorded at Malaco Studios. Earl composed both sides, "Very Special Girl" originally the B side, but switched around here as it became better known for its spins on modern soul room dancefloors.

      Madcliff

      You Can Make The Change / What People Say About Love

      Madcliff recorded one album in 1977 from which come these two tracks for the first time on 7” single. Singer, Songwriter, Drummer, Bassist and Keyboardist Chris Hills wrote the songs and was integral to the group before joining Players Association. The killer cut is the funk bomb “You Can Make The Change” which was made popular by Keb Darge at his legendary deep funk nights and has been sought after ever since.

      I'm gonna give Soul Brother the highest of fives on everyone's behalf for this one! The respected reissue specialists treat us to an all time classic this week, delivering a much needed reissue of Idris Muhammad's jazz-funk classic "Turn This Mutha Out". Originally released on Kudu in 1977 and produced by the mighty David Matthews, the LP found favour amongst disco, jazz, funk and soul fans, not least in the UK where "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" became an undisputed classic. Driven to the heart of the dancefloor by an Idris and Wilbur Bascomb rhythm section, the LP sparkles thanks to soaring, searing solo work from Mike Brecker on Tenor Sax, Hiram Bullock on Guitar and Cliff Carter on Synthesizer while Frank Floyd's vocals are the cherry on top. If you know it, you need it. If you don't, your education awaits...

      The Sir Joe Quarterman And The Free Soul album was originally released on the GSF label in 1973. It is a funk / rare groove masterpiece, one of the best ever of its genre, containing many great tracks with social commentary lyrics, fat bass lines, soaring horns and relentlessly funky beats. Also included in this Connoisseurs edition are the three non-album tracks that Joe recorded for GSF at the time, including the much sampled "I'm Gonna Get You" and "Thanks Dad".
