Mazhar Ve Fuat ‎– Türküz Türkü Çağırırız! 1973 (Yonca)


Label : Yonca

Value :

The roots of the group begin with the meeting of two teenage boys, Aziz Fuat Güner and Mazhar Alanson, and their common interest in the same album, The Beatles' Rubber Soul (1965). At the end of 1967 they began to work with Barış Manço and recorded many of his psychedelic period singles. In 1969 they recorded their first own single. In the autumn of 1973 Türküz Türkü Çağırırız! , their only LP, was released by Yonca Records. In the beginning of the 1980s another member joined and ever since they were Mazhar Fuat Özkan (MFÖ). Türküz Türkü Çağiririz! has a strong electric touch with powerful guitar effects, great vocals, some troubadour ballads, and mystical folk rock songs with a psychedelic touch.

James Brown Plays And Directs The James Brown Band ‎– Sho Is Funky Down Here 1971 (King)

Label : King

Value :

A legendary bit of fuzzy funk from James Brown – an important collaboration with the mighty Dave Matthews, who brings a more tripped-out feel to the record than some of James' other King sessions of the time! Matthews adds in lots of psych-influenced guitar – used very different than the scratching riffs of the other JB material of the late 60s – in ways that almost make the record a second chapter to Dave's Grodeck Whipperjenny album – a gritty blend of funk, soul, and psych – all with some nice touches by the James Brown Band!

The Friends Of Distinction ‎- Grazin' 1969 (RCA)

Label : RCA

 

Value :

 

The Friends of Distinction were an American vocal group best known for their late 1960s hits, "Grazing in the Grass", "Love or Let Me Be Lonely", and "Going in Circles". Founded by Harry Elston and Floyd Butler, The Friends of Distinction also included Jessica Cleaves and Barbara Jean Love, who was replaced by Charlene Gibson during her pregnancy. The Friends' first major hit, "Grazing in the Grass", was an Elston-sung vocal cover version of an instrumental hit by Hugh Masekela, with lyrics written by Elston. Released in March 1969, this gold record went Top 5 on both the pop and soul charts in the U.S., peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June. The follow-up ballad "Going in Circles" also charted highly, hitting #15 in November.

Nico Gomez And His Afro Percussion Inc. ‎- Ritual 1971 (Omega International)

Label : Omega International

Value :

Belgium, not the first place you’d think of when it comes to Latin or Afro funk. Yet one of the greatest records to blend both styles came from the small northern European country, masterminded by Nico Gomez and his Afro Percussion Inc.
Ritual was originally released in 1971 on the Dutch label Omega International (Gomez was born in Holland before moving to Belgium in the late 40s) and is being reissued by Mr Bongo in 2013, bringing its blazing funk grooves to both new ears and those already tuned in to this masterpiece’s legacy.

Ritual is a perfect example of the kind of experimentation that was rife in the 70s and which, when done as well as on this album, proves quite simply timeless.
