This is a quality slice of jazz fusion, recorded by Steve Goodman and his band in 1974.
Goodman himself had played with Miles Davis, so he already had the inside track on
high-end jazz fusion, and sidemen Don Alias and Gene Perla were right behind him.
Some Shapes To Come is a funky but underrated masterpiece: this is the first time it
has been reissued.

  Pastorius Big Band

their powers. Recorded live at Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan on the 12th of
September 1971, this is the only official in-concert recording from their early career.
The crystal clear recordings here (taken from the soundboard master tapes) provide you
with an overdose of free-floating psychedelic black rock and spaced-out jams that can 
only be described as Jimi Hendrix, James Brown & Sun Ra making a love-child live on
stage. This release also includes extensive & exhaustive liner notes from the Grammy
-award winning professor of ethnomusicology Rob Bowman who goes over each track in
detail and also wrote down quotes from Bernie Worrell & Billy Bass. Featuring an all
-star line up that includes George Clinton, Fuzzy Haskins, Calvin Simon, Grady Thomas,
Ray Davis, Tyrone Lampkin, Eddie Hazel, Billy Bass Nelson, Bernie Worrell & former
Isaac Hayes sideman Harold Beane.

ower-chord-originator Link Wray was a deserving legend of American guitar. Mordicai
Jones is a 1971 album recorded in an old chicken shed on the Wray family farm, where
Link got down to the business of summing up the country, soul and blues of rural
America into a rock sound. First vinyl release since 1972, out on Tidal Waves Music.

Harold Alexander was a competent saxophonist and dynamic flutist whose early and
mid-’70s albums for Flying Dutchman and Atlantic blended originals, soul / jazz and
R&B effectively. Alexander recorded three albums (including a live ‘Montreux Jazz
Festival’ record in 1972) and contributed to various other recordings during his
career.

This record is a delight for anyone who likes that 1970s organ groove sound and is
right up there with some of the best of the soul jazz coming out of the early
seventies. 'Hail Ceasar!' is a monster album that could keep you grooving for weeks
if you so desired. Originally released in 1972 on Eastbound Records, super rare and
fetching large sums on the collectors market, and now finally back available as
a limited deluxe vinyl edition featuring the original artwork by Tom Curry.

TWM     14      THE NINETEENTH WHOLE    SMILIN'                         LP      06.2018

                (Note : LP , 500 copies)

While this 1972 LP from short-lived Indianapolis group The Nineteenth Whole may not
exactly be a household name, some big-hitters were involved in its creation. Rudy Van
Gelder was at the controls for this one, and Cornell Dupree - the guitarist who laid
down the opening lick for Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ - also shows up. They add polish
to the five pieces of organ-led soul jazz that make up Smilin'. Now reissued by Tidal
Waves Music.

        13.     MANASSAS BOOGIE
        14.     DO ME RIGHT

Crazy Legs is the only LP laid down by Memphis guitarist Donald Austin. Originally
released in 1973, the record has become a highly sought-after work of golden-age funk.
It’s no surprise - the likes of the title track and ‘Hot Rooster’ are outrageously
groovy takes from a time where Motown, soul, funk and disco were just beginning to
cross-pollinate. Now reissued as a limited run by Tidal Waves Music.

Ofege was formed in the early 1970s by a bunch of teenagers at the St. Gregory's
College in Lagos, Nigeria. They were largely influenced by the guitar solos of Carlos
Santana, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. 'Try And Love' is wild and uncompromising blend of
soul, funk and rock with complex and groovy rhythms. Ofege succeeded in creating
a debut album drenced with fuzzy guitars, plaintive/wailing vocals and a backbeat
as influenced by James Brown as it is by Fela Kuti. Ed of 500 + isert + obi-strip.

        07.     FIELDS OF PLAY

Bernie Worrell (1944-2016) needs little introduction. He was an American keyboardist,
arranger and composer best known as a founding member of Parliament/Funkadelic and
for his work with Talking Heads. The list of his musical collaborations is extensive
and includes renowned artists and acts from the likes of Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti,
Jack Bruce, Mike Watt and Les Claypool. Bernie Worrell's list of achievements is
equally impressive: highlights include his induction in as a member of the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and receiving an honorary Doctor of Music Degree from the
New England Conservatory of Music in 2016. Next to his important body of work with
Parliament/Funkadelic Bernie Worrell released several amazing solo albums that incl.
classics such as 'All The Woo In The World' (1978), 'Funk Of Ages' (1990) and of
course 'Pieces Of Woo: The Other Side' (1993). This album was the iconic keyboardist's
fourth solo album, recorded and released in 1993. The album has an all star line up
that includes several renowned artists from the likes of Fred Wesley, Buckethead,
Bill Laswell and Umar Bin Hassan (The Last Poets). 'The Other Side' is absolutely
uncategorizable. Modal strains of jazz, avant-noise, poetry readings, heavy funk
overtones and Hammond organ-drenched experimental atmospheres give a lengthy and
unique flavor to each song. The result of this visionary approach is downright
fascinating & Worrell's attitudes go way beyond the expected boundaries flanking
free-form jazz and funk_he transforms these recordings into a jaw-dropping, delightful
adventure of unexplored and unexpected sonic realms. Available as a deluxe 180 gram
2LP set with silkscreened D-side, limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Today (their self-titled debut from 1974) became an instant hit. With a lot of airplay
and intense touring, Exile One had in no time become one of the most influential
Caribbean bands of its generation. The recording itself was done by the legendary
producer Henri Debs, whose studio and label helped bring Crole music international
recognition. The music on this album is rich, diverse and colorful in musical styles;
from Island Funk stompers to bass-organ driven Reggae grooves and soulful ballads
influenced by American greats like Otis Redding & James Brown. The cover depicts the
band dressed in self-designed Afro gowns, holding large dried beans of a local
tropical tree to spell the band name. Deeply inspired by the Pan-Africanism movement,
the bands lyrics reflect the social and political spirit of the post sixties. First
vinyl reissue since 1974. Deluxe 180g vinyl edition. Contains insert with liner notes.
Strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide, comes with obi-strip.

TWM     28      WENDELL HARRISON        DREAMS OF A LOVE SUPREME        LP      05.2019

        01.     TAKE TIME OUT
        02.     SEA MINOR BLUES
        03.     PINK SNOWBALLS AND VIOLET SKIES

        06.     DREAMS OF A LOVE SUPREME
        07.     PATRINA'S DANCE (BONUS TRACK)

A monster album from 1980 that features an all-star line-up that includes Phil Ranelin
(Freddie Hubbard, Solomon Burke, Mulatu Astatke) on trombone, Harold McKinney (Tribe)
on keyboards and Roy Brooks (Yusef Lateef, Chet Baker, Mingus) on percussion. Although
you can hear the '80s creeping in with a smoother sound, more synths, and disco/R&B
vocals, this remains a very spiritual (and soulful) jazz record. The record's an
irresistible blend of soul jazz combined with funky electric instrumentation, a groovy
sound which is very much of its time, yet overtly timeless and as relevant today as it
was back when it was initially released. This official reissue is available as a deluxe
180 gram vinyl edition (limited to 500 copies) and comes with an unreleased bonus
track.

TWM     30      BERNARD "PRETTY" PURDIE : SOUL IS...PRETTY PURDIE       LP      04.2019

Official reissue of Bernard Purdie's long time out of print 1972 classic 'Soul Is...
Pretty Purdie'. The album (featuring an all-star line up of guest musicians) is a
fantastic mix of Purdie's own material and cover versions of classics by Aretha
Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers. The rhythm section, wah-wah guitars and
growling horns constantly supply the funk for this uber funky jam while a probing
bass and Pretty Purdie's trademark beat helps showcase his considerable talents on
this career defining album. Purdie's rasping, worldweary vocal which is full of hurt
and hope lifts the album up to unseen heights. Washes of dramatic Hammond organ, stabs
of keyboards and pounding drums grab your attention. It's as if Pretty Purdie's all
-stars are determined to surpass everything thats gone before. Melodic and joyous,
you can't help lose yourself in a band at the top of their game. Originally released
on Flying Dutchman Records in 1972, now back available as a limited deluxe 180 gram
vinyl edition (1500 copies) packaged in a gatefold jacket featuring the orig. artwork.

TWM     31      FUZZY HASKINS           A WHOLE NOTHER THANG            LP      04.2019

A co-founder of the P-Funk movement, Clarence Eugene "Fuzzy" Haskins was born in West
Virginia in 1941 and started as a singer in the doo-wop vocal group The Parliaments,
led by George Clinton in the late 1950s. He was a founding member of the groundbreaking
and influential 1970s funk bands PARLIAMENT-FUNKADELIC. His 1976 solo album features
funk all-stars from the likes of Bernie Worrell, Donald Austin and Bootsy Collins.
Haskins wrote eight of the nine songs and served as producer, singer, songwriter,
guitarist and even drummer. The result was an album that oozed quality. With his brand
of earthy and heavyweight funk, Fuzzy Haskins' solo work fits right in with many of
the other great P-Funk side projects. Also featured on the album is the track 'Cookie
Jar', which was later recorded by Prince. Despite the quality of music, the album
didn't sell in vast quantities and didn't find the audience it deserved. 'A Whole
Nother Thang' is a true gem to funk fans, mint vinyl copies are hard to find and
pricey these days. If you are a funkateer, this ones for you. Originally released on
Westbound Records in 1976, now back available (for the first time since 1976) as a
limited deluxe 180 gram vinyl edition (1000 copies) packaged in a gatefold jacket
featuring the original artwork and liner notes.
