For the past four decades, a growing cult of soul music collectors have sought two obscure LPs and a handful of extremely rare 45s released on the vanity record label LAD Productions, Inc. between the late seventies and the mid eighties by the mysterious South Side Chicago singer/song writer Larry Dixon. Larry's raw songs capture the transition from R&B to boogie-down as disco was rapidly becoming extinct. They also perfectly illustrate Larry’s ability to overcome his environment and discrimination, transcended by his determination to write and produce music. With the support of his faithful musicians, Larry's success was only hindered by lack of airplay and promotion, but his talent shines through. This is the story of Larry Dixon, his label LAD Productions, Inc., and his friends and family throughout four decades of music in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods.

Selected rare Togolese recordings featured here from between 1971 to 1981. According to label Hot Casa, finding these tracks and their rights holders was quite the task, involving numerous trips all over the west African country bordered by Ghana , Benin and Burkina Faso. They have selected 13 tracks, which they've charmingly described as 'a snapshot of some hundreds of rare and often forgotten tapes from the most prolific, professional and exciting phase of the country's recording history'. Highlights on this compilation not limited to: Akofa Akoussah's sultry and bittersweet crooning on "I Tcho Tchass", the life affirming Afrobeat vibes of Aime Orchis Mathey's very obscure "Tralala Vo Dou" and of course the very funky and groovy hoedown that is Adamah & Agbote's "Dzo Le Gbo Nye" .

Originally issued only in Jamaica, this Lee Perry/Bob Marley-produced early-'70s album saw the Wailers continue their move from their ska and rocksteady roots to a more sparely produced form of early reggae, also moving toward more spiritual concerns and aspirations toward peaceful brotherhood in their lyrics. Actually, for a Lee Perry production it's rather on the basic no-frills side, with a stark ambience highlighting the vocal harmonies and throbbing bass.

Marc Moulin was one of Belgium's jazz legends, his Placebo albums being the 'Holy Grail' for his funs. Placebo's debut LP Ball of Eyes is a remarkably focused Soul Jazz record, without the experimentation or Free Jazz moments which were still in vogue during the first half of the '70s. This Japanese CD pressing, reissue by P-Vine Records, released in 2011. Excellent compelling renditions of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues" and Sam & Dave's "You Got Me Hummin'" as well as his own compositions make Ball Of Eyes a perfect example of the genius of Marc Moulin and his incredible band.

Raven's That's Heavy Baby gathers 22 Solomon Burke rarities he recorded for MGM between 1971 and 1973, following his career-defining soul hits for Atlantic in the '60s. During his brief stint with the label, Burke produced two enjoyable soul/gospel/country-inspired albums, Electronic Magnetism and We're Almost Home, plus contributed a few songs to the soundtrack of the blaxploitation film Cool Breeze. The majority of these cuts maintain a consistently high performance level with the exception of three insipid cover versions from Electronic Magnetism.

8th Day were a studio-based congregation on Invictus Records: the post-Motown label from Holland/Dozier/Holland. There wasn't an official group lineup, and the musicians and singers in 8th Day were featured in other Invictus/Hot Wax groups – most notably in 100 Proof (Aged In Soul) – but sweating over the details of who did what and who was where misses the point of the Invictus sound: the sound and the songs took prominence over group membership, and why not? The team at Invictus was tremendous, creating big, "Wall of Sound" productions that were nevertheless nimble, stylish, and lush: a perfect expansion of the Motown aesthetic for the post-psychedelic, smooth, soul era.

Xhol was one of the first bands who participated at the send of the 60s to the launch of the Krautrock movement in Germany. Nevertheless their music cannot be categorised. Their roots came from rhythm'n blues with soul tendencies. With their second album "electrip" they rapidly found their own style which can be considered as an original fusion of free jazz, psychedelic rock and electronic experimentations. Very dynamic their jazz rock can sometimes be compared with the spirit of the psychedelic soul developed by Soft Machine. However the unusual use of electric instruments and electronic manipulations made Xhol absolutely unique…
