Super Breaks: Essential Jazz Soul & Funk Breakbeats

Super Breaks Vol.1: Essential Jazz Soul & Funk Breakbeats

Without any doubt this is a fine compilation of some truly outstanding tracks, if you've got your funk on then you will be well served by most of what's on offer here. Rock creek park (in particular) is a soul-funk anthem of legendary status, and the detroit emeralds (baby let me take you) are a much underrated outfit capable of superbly laid back grooves and pleasing ,mellow vocals.This album has the ORIGINAL recordings from which all the classic cuts where taken. Its a real winner and guaranteed to be in the top 10 of anyones collection.

Super Breaks Vol.2: Essential Jazz Soul & Funk Breakbeats

These songs all have breaks, have been sampled like crazy, and are essential additions to your break beat collection. The following tracks have pure drum/percussion breaks:

Dance to the Drummer's Beat
You're Getting a Little Too Smart
Breakdown Pt 2
Papa Was Too
Just a groove in G
Kool Is Back

Most of the other tunes feature drums with perhaps a bass line, or simple instrumental playing overtop - hence they are breaks.
Many of these tracks have appeared on bootleg vinyl compilations like Ultimate Breaks and Beats, or have been a favorite of DJs, producers with samplers and their rap artists. The one song that seems out of place is 'Be Thankful For What You Got', which has had vocal snippets sampled from it, but the beat (drum and light organ section that is the intro to Pt 2) isn't really something that would be part of a DJs vinyl arsenal at a scratch/mix competition.
This set is essential not just for people who are into songs with breaks, but also those who remember the good old days of hip hop sampling and recognize many of these tunes from their sampled beats and hooks.

Super Breaks Vol.3: Essential Jazz Soul & Funk Breakbeats

The third volume of Super Breaks maintains the high standards set by this series in several ways: the quality of the material, eclecticism of the tracks within a '60s and '70s soul-funk-jazz crossover spectrum, and mixture of obscure songs by stars with obscure tunes by just plain obscure artists. Although cuts by Marvin Gaye, the Coasters, and Sly & the Family Stone are found here, none of them are the ones you're likely to hear on oldies stations, or even noncommercial specialist programs. Gaye's "T Plays It Cool" is wiggly, futuristic instrumental funk from his early-'70s soundtrack to Trouble Man, for instance, while the Coasters' "Soul Pad" is goofy modern soul from 1967 and Sly & the Family Stone's "Trip to Your Heart" is from their relatively unheralded debut Epic album. True, some of this disc is 1970s funk, some from leading lights like Funkadelic and the Bar Kays. Yet there are unpredictable side trips to artists few would dare to include on such thematic comps, like the spacy jazz-funk cut "The Rose" from San Francisco late-'60s psychedelic cult band Fifty Foot Hose, the fusion cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, mid-'70s fusion from Hampton Hawes, and an excellent 1964 sorrowful girl group-soul ballad by Wendy Rene (selected due to its being sampled by Wu Tang Clan on "Tearz"). If you're looking for more well-known samples here, bits of Johnny Jenkins' "I Walk on Gilded Splinters" were appropriated for both Beck's "Loser" and Oasis' "Go Let It Out." If you're not looking for samples (though the modern records that have sampled these tracks are detailed in the liner notes), it's still a good collection of off the beaten track music, if a little erratic and occasionally mundane. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
