Melvin Jackson ‎– Funky Skull 1969 (Limelight)

Label : Limelight

Value :

One of our favorite albums of all times – and a legendary testament to the greatness of the Chicago music scene in the late 60s! Melvin Jackson was the bassist in Eddie Harris' very successful group of the time – and his playing on Eddie's trippy and funky records for Atlantic is one of the factors that made them so great. Here, he's working with an acoustic bass, amplified with electronics like a Varitone sax – and this strange-sounding instrument is set up in a hip group that mixes Cadet funky studio players (Phil Upchurch, Morris Jennings, Jody Christian) with some of the brighter young players of the AACM (Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, and Leo Smith.) Jackson's bass is looped through all sorts of crazy effects, and the result is this amazing blend of avant garde playing and groovy rhythms that is beyond compare!

Ned Doheny ‎- Prone 1979 (CBS/Sony)

Label : CBS/Sony

Value :

Be With Records present the first ever officially licensed reissue of Ned Doheny's Prone, originally released in Japan only in 1979. Aficionados rate Ned Doheny's Prone as his finest achievement. This sophisticated masterpiece has been unavailable on vinyl for over 35 years, so Be With Records pressed it on audiophile 180 gram vinyl and restored the original Japanese artwork for both jacket and classic lyric-insert. Featuring the superior full-vocal version of "To Prove My Love". Ned Doheny's crowning glory, even better than the superlative Hard Candy (1976). So quite why this AOR/soft-funk gem has not been available legitimately on vinyl for over 35 years is anyone's guess. A forgotten-funk classic. What makes this release truly special is the inclusion of the full-vocal version of jazz-funk classic "To Prove My Love". It's what you've all been waiting for. Produced again by the legendary Steve Cropper, Prone's super-smooth grooves showcase Ned's beautifully laid-back vocals, virtuoso playing and forever-wry lyricism.

Reality - Reality 1972 (Blue Elephant)

Label : Blue Elephant

Value :

Massive grooves from a very unique group! These guys play guitar and percussion all at once – in a flurry of fast grooves that rip away tremendously, but with a style that's still plenty darn earthy! There's definitely a bit of a global influence in the music overall, but the sound comes out as pure funk in the end – tightly focused, and very jamming – but not in a way that's ever too overindulgent. Some tracks feature vocals by singers Leslie Vos and Renold Shearman, and instrumentation includes guitars, organ, timbales, and congas.

Medusa ‎- Medusing 2003 (Ikaros Music)

Label : Ikaros Music

Value  :

1979 Λίγο πριν την ίδρυση των θρυλικών Lumbago και για ένα μικρό διάστημα παράλληλα με αυτούς ο Θανάσης Ζλατάνος είχε δημιουργήσει μια πολυεθνική μπάντα με εξαίρετους μουσικούς την οποία ονόμασε Medusa.
Ένα κράμα rock - jazz - funk που έγινε ιδιαίτερα αγαπητό στο μικρό χρόνο παρουσίας του στο Όσλο της Νορβηγίας.
Ο τραγουδιστής John Dunne απο Ιρλανδία έβγαζε τα προς τα ζειν σαν μουσικός του δρόμου , όπου και τον άκουσε ο Θανάσης και μαγεύτηκε απ την φωνή με τις Van Morisson καταβολές. Έπαιξαν για ένα μικρο διάστημα μαζί και λίγο αργότερα προστέθηκαν οι Per Sveinsson Νορβηγός στο μπάσο, ο Luis Gambolini Αργεντινός στα ντραμς και ο Νορβηγός Bengt Jensen στα πλήκτρα.
Οι ηχογραφήσεις έγιναν στο στούντιο που εργαζόταν ο Sveinsson σαν ηχολήπτης το 1979.

Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali (original title) 1977

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (Italian: Emanuelle e gli Ultimi Cannibali) is a 1977 Italian cannibal film directed by Joe D'Amato. The film involves Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) a photojournalist who discovers a woman in a mental hospital who is a cannibal who has tattoos of an Amazonian tribe on her skin. Along with Professor Mark Lester (Gabriele Tinti), the two travel to the Amazon with a team to discover the source of the long-thought-extinct tribe that still practices cannibalism today.
The film is an entry in the Black Emanuelle series and features elements of cannibal films which had just gained popularity after the release of Ultimo mondo cannibale (1977). D'Amato referred it in an interview as "a reasonable commercial success, especially abroad"
In a New York City psychiatric ward, photojournalist Emanuelle learns about a girl there who was found in the Amazon rainforest. Emanuelle discovers that she appears to have been raised by the Apiaca, a tribe of cannibals thought to be lost. She contacts Professor Mark Lester, the curator at the American Museum of Natural History, and persuades him to come with her to the Amazon.
Upon arrival at the Amazon, they are joined by Isabel Wilks, the daughter of the organizer of the expedition, and Sister Angela, who is going upriver to join a mission. Attacked by a snake, Emanuelle is rescued by hunter Donald Mackenzie, who joins the group together with his wife Maggie and their guide Salvatore and informs Sister Angela that her convent has been attacked by what they presume to be cannibals, and that no survivors remain.
The group continues into the jungle, now being watched by natives in hiding. They find a severed head on a stake, and Sister Angela disappears to be found impaled the next morning. Meanwhile, the Mackenzies attempt to leave the group in an attempt to find a crashed plane containing diamonds. As they stumble upon the plane, they are attacked by a tribe of cannibals. Donald and Maggie are kidnapped. The rest of the group only arrive in time to see it happen. They attempt to find the cannibal village. Upon their arrival, the cannibals kill Salvatore and capture Isabel. Mark and Emanuelle manage to escape only to watch the Mackenzies being brutally murdered and Isabel impregnated by the tribe in preparation for sacrifice. To save Isabel, Emanuelle paints tribal symbols on her body to convince the natives that she is their water goddess, and carries Isabel away into the water where Mark is waiting in a speedboat. Shot at by the natives with spears, Mark, Emanuelle and Isabel still manage to escape unharmed.
