Kashmere Stage Band – Texas Thunder Soul 1968-1974 (DOLP)
Repressed! The Greatest High School Band Of All Time Plays Hard Soul, Funk And Jazz On This Double LP OverviewThe word is out The Kashmere Stage Band was the greatest high school band - ever. The bandleader at Kashmere High School, Conrad Johnson, transformed a bunch of rough-hewn Houston high schoolers into a band that could compete with any in the nation – professional, or otherwise. Forget high school bands, we're talking about sixteen year old kids who would give the JBs a run for their money! The Kashmere Stage Band released a total of eight albums and three 45s on Johnson’s Kram label. The band’s best tracks are collected on Texas Thunder Soul 1968-1974.

VA - Cold Heat (DOLP)
Repressed! 15 Heavy Funk Rarities Presented As A Double Gatefold LPCold Heat is Eothen “Egon” Alapatt’s a follow-up to the famous Funky 16 Corners set he curated in the early 2000s. And like that one, Cold Heat is overflowing with great bits that had barely (or never) been heard by the rest of the world at large. Egon went through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos and came up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum and some tracks are by names that finally got their due here, thanks to Egon, Now-Again, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the years.Cold Heat is Eothen “Egon” Alapatt’s a follow-up to the famous Funky 16 Corners set he curated in the early 2000s.

VA - Wanted And Needed (LP)
WELCOME TO Wanted And Needed, a Northern Soul playlist befitting of any discerning DJ and one that would happily slot into any Soul Night, All-Nighter or Weekender today.Some of our discs were first spun as far back as the Twisted Wheel, such as The Precisions’ floorpacker “If This Is Love”. Others were unreleased at the time of recording and have found favour in more recent times, such as The Persianettes “Run Run” (originally covered up as “You Better Get Away” by The Sequins). Also unreleased at the time was Pearl Jones’ infectious “Give Me Another Chance”, a Sidra recording that finally surfaced in 2001 on a company acetate. Jones also appears here on her own composition “Let My Baby Go” as a member of the Embraceables. Another of our featured tracks that eluded the Northern Soul scene at the time is Joey Delorenzo’s feel-good “Wake Up To The Sunshine Girl” issued in 1973 on the tiny Mi-Val label but sounds much earlier and probably is. The unknown Delorenzo was reputedly a local car salesman with a passion to become a recording artist. He finally got his 3 minutes 15 seconds of fame in return for a generous deal down at the lot!Our playlist kicks off with a real heavyweight of the UK Rare Soul scene, our title track, the legendary “Just Say You’re Wanted (And Needed)” by Gwen Owens. A flop in America, it wasn’t until 1976 that this – already rare – 45 finally made it to these shores and shook the Casino walls. The action is relentless with 100% floorpackers courtesy of The Precisions, Tony Galla, The Capreez, Ronnie And Robyn with their vocal to “Sidras Theme”, The Falcons, and Mickey Lee Lane (aka Sounds Of Lane) with his raucous instrumental “Tracks To Your Mind”.Outta Sight

Bukky Leo & Black Egypt - Presents The Legend Of William Onyeabor (LP)
In 1982, Bukky's path led him to London, where he became one of the forerunners in the Acid Jazz scene. A young A&R man named Gilles Peterson signed him to the newly formed Acid Jazz label and his first release "Rejoice In Righteousness" went straight to the heart of the Acid Jazz world, reaching number 1 in the rhythm and blues, dance and jazz charts. The follow-up album "River Nile" led to a nomination at the US African Music Awards in New York. There he became acquainted with the legendary, late tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson who invited Bukky to his home in San Francisco.

Milton Wright - Original Friends And Buddies (LP)
Athens of the North is proud to present Milton Wright's stunning alternate version of the now Classic Miami soul LP 'Friends & Buddies'. An altogether more stripped down, folky soul affair than its highly respected, much sampled brother is now available on Vinyl, CD and Digital for the very first time. Shelved at the last minute then re-recorded and overdubbed, only a few promo copies of this early version escaped from the studio and are deep in the collections of the very few previously in the know. The master tapes burnt in a fire at T.K Disco in Miami in the early 80s so even the label has not heard this in 30 Years. Many reissues of the second version of Friends & Buddies LP have come and gone, but Milton's original vision has remained hidden until now. As searingly honest and stunningly soulful as any seminal Marvin Gaye or Terry Callier LP, it stands tall amongst its exceptional peers as one of the true pillars of quality 70s soul.
