      Leon ThomasThe Creator 1969-1973: The Best Of The Flying Dutchman MastersBGP

      Cross section of the great recordings that Leon Thomas made for Bob Thiele's Flying Dutchman. It covers the relatively straight-ahead pieces from his first two albums, as well as the soul jazz fusions of later output for the label.

      His last two albums have become increasingly in-demand in recent years in particular the eclectic experimentalism of 'Shape Your Mind To Die' and 'It's My Life I'm Fighting For'. BGP have also included some live tracks and a previously unreleased version of 'Um Um Um'.

        Gil Scott-HeronThe Revolution Begins: The Flying Dutchman MastersBGP

        The three albums Gil Scott-Heron recorded for Bob Thiele’s Flying Dutchman label are some of the most important in the history of black music. They show a multi-talented artist reaching maturity with his first recorded efforts. "The Revolution Begins” gathers together every piece of music released by Gil on Flying Dutchman, including a track recorded with Bernard “Pretty” Purdie which has never been previously reissued. All remastered from the original master tapes, bringing you sound that’s better than you’ll ever have heard and new clarity to Gil’s words and the musical performances. BGP have additionally assembled an alternate version of Gil's third album, "Free Will", based on access to the original recordings.

              Bridge Into The New AgeFunky Afro-Centric Spiritual Sounds From Jazz's Forgotten DecadeBGP

              BGP returns to its jazz roots with a compilation that looks at the funky, Afro-centric and distinctly spiritual grooves coming out of North America in the latter part of the 60s and early 70s. Its musical landscape was dominated by the politics of the post civil-rights era, the two jazz totems of Miles and Coltrane, the success of soul and its little brother funk. The outcome was a mixture of rhythms from Africa, Detroit and Latin-America, imbued with a healthy dose of free thinking. As the jazz scene of the early 70s was shrinking, the music featured here was one attempt to get it out of its trough.

              With sought-after records by Azar Lawrence, Gary Bartz and Jack DeJohnette, who learned their trade playing in the ground-breaking early 70's Miles Davis groups, and musicians who came out of the post-Coltrane school of jazz from McCoy Tyner to Norman Connors to Alice Coltrane and Joe Henderson, this is truly deep, spiritual, often political, music for the soul from a fertile period in African-American history.

                The Soul of Spanish HarlemBeautiful Soul Music from the Heart of New York's Spanish HarlemBGP

                Great compilation of soul music recorded by latin musicians in New York in the 1960s!

                The 1960s saw a new generation of young latin musicians rise to prominance, led by artists such as Joe Bataan, with pioneering styles such as boogaloo, which fused New York salsa with the sounds of African-American soul and RnB music. This compilation is a great collection of some of the most soulful moments from some of these soulful latin artists!

                One of the best tracks from Jazzman's Jukebox Mambo comp - Lalo Guererro's 'Los Chucos Suaves' is perhaps the definitive recording in the short-lived Los Angeles sub-genre of Pachuco music - the sounds which emanated from the Mexican youth sub-culture of the same name in the late 1940s. A hybrid of American Jazz, Pop and Latin American rhythms, with songs sung in Spanish and dense in chicano slang, the movement was an intriguing sub-plot in the emergent narrative of rock and roll in the mid-century.
