                            Wanted: Disco

                              The always affordable Wanted series returns this week with another set of beautifully presented, expertly selected comps covering a variety of genres. This edition takes a look at all things D I S C O, giving us a whole load of heat, mostly from the funier end of the mirror ball galaxy. Love Committee's dramatic and driving "Just As Long As I Got You" gets us off on the good foot, before glittering winners from A Taste Of Honey, Charo and Zebra show off the range of the movement - from the sequins of Studio 54 to the downtown block parties. On the flip Loose Joints treat us to THE outsider disco anthem before funk and jazz dons James Brown and Bob James drop a little 4/4 on our asses.

                              Wanted: Reggae

                                So far in their 'Wanted' series, Wagram have taken a tour of the mother continent and got loose and loved up in inner city USA. Now their crack team of collectors and selectors head to Kingston, JA for a faultless set of Reggae brilliance, taking us all the way from 1976 to 1994. After the soundsystem pressure of The Gladiators' "Can't Stop Righteousness", the low slung skank of Ini Kamoze's "World A Music" ("...Out on the streets they call it murda!") takes us into the heart of the ghetto where the legendary Horace Andy soothes our cares. Classics from Black Uhuru and Clarence Parks close out the A-side, while the flip picks up a whole lot of heat from Sly & Robbie, Jimmy Riley and Max Romeo. Wonderfully pressed and beautifully presented in collaboration with acclaimed British photographer Chris Steel-Perkins, this is an excellent addition to any well rounded collection.

                                Wanted: Soul

                                  After stomping, strutting and skanking their way through Afrobeat, funk and reggae, Wagram turn their attention to the smooth sounds of soul, serving up twelve under the radar cuts from the likes of Dee Edwards, Millie Jackson, Darondo and George Soule. New Orleans legend King Floyd touches down with a wicked rendition of "Hard To Handle", Nancy Holloway jabs us right in the feels with the loungey "Hurt So Bad" and Brenda George takes us to the dance-floor with the raucous "What You See Is What You're Gonna Get". Wonderfully pressed and beautifully presented in collaboration with acclaimed British photographer Chris Steel-Perkins, this is an excellent addition to any well rounded collection.

                                    Not content with furnishing our collections with excellent compilations of soul, disco, funk and jazz, Wagram now take a deep dive into the discographies of individual artists, in this case the exceptional Aretha Franklin. Focusing on the early years of her career, this sixteen track set takes us through the likes of 'Won't Be Long', 'Blue Holiday' and 'It Ain't Necessarily So' and serves as a reminder of just how special a talent she was.

                                    16. Right Now

                                    You should know the score by now with these Wanted comps - perfect stylistic samplers of their genre, with a variety of better and lesser known bangers, for a bargain price no less. This time round, they narrow the genre-lens to a more specific sound, namely Funky Soul, so the setlist is a little more obscure than usual, but just as excellent!

                                    Get a load of 'Bubble Gum', a stone groove so deadly that Pete Rock and Madlib both had to flip it. Bangers from Mavis John, Jimmy Bo Horne and Al Green follow, before we get Afro-boogie classic "Enjoy Your Life" by Oby Onyioha, and that's just the A-side. Wicked cool folks.

                                    Second installment of this all-killer-no-filler funk compilation series. All coming in at a nice bargain bin price tag but but featuring the whole kit and caboodle of funk classics, pressed nicely onto fresh wax and sounding better than ever! I honestly couldn't think of a better stocking filler for any discerning funk fan this Christmas!

                                    Vol. 2 features dancefloor staples from The Fatback Band and Gwen McCrae plus lesser-known jems from Manu Dibango, Brother To Brother and Blowfly.

                                    100% certified funk bangers, from begining to end. Sure looks funky to me!

                                    Third and final installment of this cut-price funk compilation series which seems to have left no funky stone un-turned! Literally every single well known (and not so well known) hit is covered by one of the three volumes and with a nice, high fidelty pressing (without squeezing too many tracks onto one side as is so often the case), you can be sure that the sound quality reins supreme throughout. You might even argue you'd need to aquire 12" versions for them to sound any better!

                                    Probably my personal favourite outta the three volumes due to it closing on Lonnie Listen's breathtaking "A Chance For Peace" (which hasn't lost it's relavence 45 years on...) and also containing trakcs by Bobby Burd, Funkadelic AND T-Connection. But honestly, if you're in for a penny yer in for a pound folks, and at only forteen quid a go, I honestly can't see a reason not to plump for all three. Go on, you're worth it!

                                      The Wagram team take us to a lesser known Golden Age of hip hop, born out of the Banlieues, car parks and concrete playgrounds of France's post industrial cities. Dialing the Delorean in to '96-'03, this 12 track compilation comes correct with all the hardest tunes of the time, and while we don't get anything from NTM's 'Supreme NTM' (an oversight in my opinion), the two tracks from X-Men and utter heaters from Passi and Sniper more than make up for it. If you wanna hear a whole host of Francophone flows over jazzy Preemo-style beats, this is the LP for you.

                                        How can you resist a bit of Deano "Let It Snow!" or Ol' Blue Eyes jazzin' up "Jingle Bells"? Surely everybody loves Louis Armstrong, right? Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles are all in there, and you've got a choice of a white or blue Christmas from Elvis. Sam Cooke has sneaked on there too, with "Wade In The Water" - not exactly a Christmas song, but good none the less.

                                            Brisa Roché

                                            Father

                                              With Father, her sixth album, American Brisa Roché delivers her most personal and accomplished album to date. A gem of minimalist folk, haunted by the unique voice of the singer and produced by the grand John Parish- who directed among others the magic To Bring You my Love of PJ Harvey, a record with which Father shares common points: a twilight ambiance, fantomatic, something of Gothic Americana, a disquiet climate underlined by mythic Jean Babtiste Mondino’s cover photos.

                                              In this album, written half in Paris where the singer lives and half in the small town in Northern California where she grew up, the timbre of Brisa Roché reveals itself more bewitching than ever. She inscribes herself in the line of great folk singers of the 60’s such as Karen Dalton or Vashti Bunyan and artists today like Alela Diane, shaman-singers, daughters of water and fire, capable of reviving the dead and reminding us of family operas, passion and the passing of seasons.

                                              As its title indicates, Father is an out-of-the-ordinary project. In it Brisa Roché sings the immense, impossible quasi-incestuous love she lived, as a child and teen in Northern California, for her father (who died when she was 16), a dealer who recited poetry and lived at a hundred miles per hour, a charismatic and sulphurous adventurer, a man of endless conquests.

                                              Far from being too personal or too centered around the artist’s own story, these songs reveal themselves to be universal, exploring all facets of love: longing, fascination, sadness, seduction, the desire to save the beloved. Songs everyone can see themselves in. And in them Brisa plays all roles: the tearful child seeking to hold her wildfire of a father back from death (the poignant Trying to control and Carnation), the role of a mother/wife (the marvelous Patience), or even the role of the unsettling dealers surrounding her pater (Holy Badness and its powerful refrain like an impious canticle).

                                              Each sketch takes us further, into cabins lost in the forest (48) or onto backseats of cars parked in front of liquor stores, as Brisa Roché proves herself an accomplished songwriter, capable of the most beautiful texts, stories magnified by the work of John Parish. We rediscover the spare, pure production that is the signature style of the English musician: folk chords rough as old pieces of wood, strident electric guitar riffs (Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs lent a strong hand), a few epic bass drum hits… Midnight full of Nature’s rustling, where rises the lustral voice of the Inconsolable.

                                              If Dean Moriarty, the hero of On the Road, by Kerouac, had had a daughter, SHE would have recorded this album. Curled in the back of the Buick, criss-crossing America she would have scribbled these lyrics while watching the tanned neck of her “badass” father. In the career of every artist, there’s a piece of work that brings us into the depths of his/her heart, into its internal womb, where is crafted the need for expression, the very desire to sing. “Father” is of this kind. We are the closest one can get to lava. And, fuck, how it burns.
