Jah Wobble had already explored 'Islamic funk' with his Invaders of the Heart band but here got down with some weird amalgam of Eurobeat hooked to Afro-funk of the Talking Heads kind. Snake Charmer is a mini LP and result from a collaboration between Jah Wobble, best known as Public Image Limited bass-player, U2 guitarist The Edge and German experimental krautrocker and Can member Holger Czukay produced by a forefather of the house music, the New York Studio 54 DJ François Kevorkian. Others who dropped in during the recording of the 'Snake Charmer' mini-album were Can's Jaki Liebezeit, jazz-funk singer Marcella Allen and guitarist Animal.

Sly Stewart is one of pop and rock's great enigmas. A charismatic performer, full of a boundless, good energy, a wonderful songwriter and, at least when he was in his prime, a man with a sure vision, Sly still somehow managed to throw it all away by the mid-'70s. The classic work he did with Sly & the Family Stone, though, is worth its weight in gold. This 20-track set has all the essential hits, including "Stand," "Everyday People," "Everybody Is a Star," "Family Affair," "Dance to the Music," and "I Want to Take You Higher," among others, and for most casual listeners, it has everything they'll really need.

With their long track record, Kool & the Gang have always offered dance-provoking rhythms and Something Special fits that bill, too. Featuring the number one single "Take My Heart (You Can Have It If You Want It)," James "J.T." Taylor approaches the song in a cool, mesmerizing tone, closing out the vamp in his falsetto with a burst of energy while the background vocals chant the subtitle throughout the chorus. Not known to lead a song in falsetto, Taylor further utilizes this talent on the motivated rhythms of the nocturnal scenario of "Steppin' Out." It maintained a steady stride, rising to the number ten spot on the charts. The third single from the album was "Get Down on It." As the title indicates, this is a gritty funk track that worked its way up the charts to claim the number three position, selling more than 500,000 copies. Although there were no more charted singles from this album, the entire collection is deserving of recognition. On a slower note, "Pass It On" and "No Show" received regional airplay.

Quantum Jump - Quantum Jump (1976) & Quantum Jump - Barracuda (1977).
UK act Quantum Jump was formed in 1973, consisting of Rupert Hine (keyboards, vocals), Mark Warner (guiatrs), John G. Perry (bass) and Trevor Morais (drums). Fusion, jazz rock and funk where the foundations of their musical explorations, and in 1973 and 74 they recorded the material to be used for their debut album, eventually issued by The Electric Record Company in 1976 following their purchase of the rights of the album. "The Lone Ranger" was issued as a single from the album, and although initially gathering a lot of interest at first this abruptly stopped when the BBC banned the single from being played due to what they deemed were inappropriate lyrical contents…

1994 | Soul/Jazz/Pop | DVD Video | DVD-5 | ~4.19 Gb
MPEG2 NTSC (720x480) VBR | English (LinearPCM, 2 ch) English (Dolby AC3, 6 ch)

This impressive record of Sade's 1994 live peformances reminds us of just how much her distinctive sound combines languorously emotional pop with lightweight but musically fulfilling cocktail jazz. As fine as the voice is, we can never forget that Sade's backing band are sidemen rather than mere accompanists, and in several of the 18 numbers here we get solos of real virtuosity. The selection of songs includes many of Sade's hits–"Cherry Pie," "Smooth Operator," "Your Love Is King"–and some less well-known songs from the albums, such as "Red Eye" and "Jezebel."
