Gary McFarland / La Vie En Rose (1967) Gary McFarland was one of the more significant contributors to orchestral jazz during the 1960s. He distinguished himself as a witty composer, vibrant arranger, communicative vibes player and, later, a premiere producer. This "adult prodigy," as one critic called him, came to music rather late in life and was only recorded during an all-too brief decade. But McFarland was an ingenious composer whose variety of musical moods revealed shades of complex emotional subtlety and clever childlike simplicity.
100% Pure Poison / Puppet On A String (1974) 100% Pure Poison only released one record in their short-ass music career, but it withstands the test of time. Originally released in 1974, this is one of the rarest and most in demand '70s soul/funk albums ever, and fetches in excess of 500 Euro in its original issue. 100% Pure Poison started as American servicemen based in Germany and used a forged exit pass to attend a music industry conference. From that conference they signed with EMI and later released their album "Coming Right at You".
Johnny Pate feat. Adam Wade / Brother On The Run (1973) An incredible funky soundtrack - one of the best of the Blacksploitation generation, and one of the rarest too! Johnny Pate did the orchestrations for this excellent lost film, and he brought the same sort of energy to it that he did with his soundtrack for "Shaft In Africa". There's some masterfully funky tracks that are very tightly arranged - grooving hard with some nice "chase" themes, and slowing down in a few sexier, more soulful numbers. Adam Wade sang the vocals to "Brother On The Run" - perhaps the catchiest of all soundtrack tunes from the time!
East Coast / The Rock (1978) East Coast , a studio project by producer Charlie Wallert and Philly soul bass legend Michael Foreman, hit it big on new yorks disco scene with "The Rock" in 1978.
Sammy Davis Jr. / I Want To Be Happy (1972) It's true that while Sammy did countless movies, albums, Broadway musicals and television shows he never won an Oscar, a Grammy, a Tony or an Emmy, but Sammy really was the greatest entertainer of all time. Sammy Davis Jr.'s short stay at MGM in the early '70s produced the biggest hit of his career and a whole bunch of tunes that reflect the times they were recorded in.
Ana Rosely / Skim Dum Dum Dum (1984) Ana Rosely sets aside her Rio samba-purist roots for just long enough to unleash this boogie-inflected slice of pure samba-funk ecstacy. "Skim Dum Dum Dum" means whatever you want it to mean, just as long as it's good to ya!
