Soul Cal, Funky Disco & Crossover Soul 1971-1982 LP Compilation Now Again Records
Now-Again records – Eothen Alapatt aka ‘Egon’ founded the record label in 2002 in Los Angeles whilst running the infamous Stones Throw label simultaneously.
He focuses on reissues of music from the 1950’s to the present day and the label represents a wealth of discographies that range from Nigerian fuzz-funk to Swedish hard rock to Brasilian psychedelia to the jazz, funk, soul and disco that Egon is known for. These records are always on rotation at the restaurant.
Whenever he is in town, usually with his partner in crime, Madlib, they always find a moment to visit us on Columbia Road. Like his record label, his knowledge of wine and food runs deep. It’s always a good evening when they drop in and we are really proud to be able to offer a selection for sale here.
A decade in the making, Soul Cal is the definitive survey of America’s best, independent, 70s soul-ensembles. Profiled within this album and book are the bands that transitioned from funk to disco; the bands that kept up the backbeat as rhythm moved to the backseat. Against the odds, they left recorded artifacts for we at Now-Again to dig out, dust off and restore. Collected here for the first time are the musical dreams of dozens, dreams that were deferred but were never discarded.
