Soulmusic.com Records (as distributed by Cherry Red) aren’t just releasing expanded editions of albums by George Duke or Harvey Mason – see earlier posts – but also manufacture reissues of fine funky stuff by Barbara Ann aka Bobbi Humphrey, Loose Ends, Mtume, Roy Ayers and many more … “New Face Deli” (1986, here without the tedious intro) features William “Bootsy” Collins (who cowrote the song with James Mtume) while “Home-made jam” (1978) strongly reminds of Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s A real mother for ya“, no?

Hey! Whatever happened to BBE‘s intentions of releasing a whole series of Roy Ayers archive material? Whatever the reason may be for not unearthing more gems from Mr. Roy’s vaults, I’m already mucho contento this mutha of a masterpiece has resurfaced (back in 2005)! It’s said to be influenced by Tower of Power … wonder which ToP track?
