A reissue of the Soul Fire classic which got the ball rolling, spiffy in a heavy-duty gatefold sleeve.

Excellent, varied soul LP originally issued in 1973. People Are Thinking and All Of Your Life are stewed funk belters; Sometimes is more Marlena-Shaw. Super singing. Billy Larkin leads a band of locals.

Deluxe reissue of his holy grail 1979 LP debut, adding a clutch of sevens.

Revered 1972 Latin rock album by South Bronx street-gang-turned-band. British rock ‘n’ roll, driving funk drums, Latin roots. CD with 80-page booklet; vinyl with download codes for this, and digital soundfiles.

Heavy funk in a fourteen-piece, reverb-drenched, psyched-out, curried, widescreen, concept-album kind of a way, this is great — deeply nostalgic but intractable and fresh. Vinyl now, too.
