Which reminds me about their 1/2/3/4/500 % Dynamite series - brilliant if you like your reggae

I've got 1-600% - great!

The Funk Drops have some dynamite stuff on them.

Jazz Dance Classics vol 4 is great. I've had it for years and it keeps on giving. I keep meaning to get the other volumes but never seem to actually do it.

The label, Luv N'Haight, do some lovely compilations but are more on the funk end of the soul spectrum. If you want rare funk then they are your people.

I live off compilations, too lazy for vinyl plus I used to scratch em when i'd had too many, I love the Mod Jazz, New Breed R&B and Birth of Soul cd's, I've found all the comps on Ace/Kent are excellent haven't had a bad one yet. Also like the Hipshaker R&B series. As with JA tunes I've loved all of the Trojan releases, the box sets back in early 2000 were excellent value as are the more recent stuff on the the Trojan presents series and the early Blue Beat comps were more than welcome (shame the copyright laws changed) . Good music at good prices.

A new Otis Redding compilation: The Dock Of The Bay Sessions - Rhino 2018

This 12-song (mono and stereo) DOCK OF THE BAY SESSIONS collection has been compiled with input from Roger Armstrong of Ace Records and Otis biographer Jonathan Gould . Some of the tracks would have been part of the new album (had it not been for the Lake Mocona plane crash).

Track list:
(Sittin' on) The dock of the bay
Think about it
Hard to handle,
The happy song (dum-dum)
Love man'
Direct me
I've got dreams to remember
Champagne and wine
Pounds and hundreds (LBS+100S)
I'm a changed man
Gone again
Broad minds, narrow ties

This one's great and ultra-cheap (BTW, I have a soft spot for From route 66 to the Flamingo too  :) ):

And I think there's a new installment in the "Mod Jazz" Kent comps on the way.
There's actually a great wee band up here called Mod Life Crisis , just a covers band but they really hit the spot for me , great band and great covers too , just what you want to hear. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
