Teena MarieStarchild ... LP
Epic, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A stunning solo effort – Teena's second on Epic, and proof that she could still put out the goods on her own!

Esther MarrowSister Woman ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Very righteous work from Esther Marrow – a soul sister who sings with a hell of a lot of power! The set's an overlooked gem in the Fantasy catalog of the 70s, and it's one of only two secular soul albums cut by Marrow – and quite possibly the best of the bunch, too! Esther's got some ... read more CD

Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes ... read more CD

Martha & The VandellasDance Party ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $9.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – but which also offers a lot more than you might expect – way more than just a few cash-in dancefloor tunes! True, the whole thing's pretty lively – and titles include the group's seminal version of "Dancing In The Street" ... read more CD

New Nancy MartinCan't Believe (voc, inst) (Atlantic pressing) ... 12-inch
Atlantic/RFC, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
A sweetly stepping mid tempo disco groover with a hypnotic, stripped down Euro-disco feel that never veers too heavily into the pulsating sequencer mode or cheesy over-synthesized excess! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Atlantic sleeve.)

Martin CircusDisco Circus/Disco Circus Medley ... 12-inch
Prelude/Unidisc, 1984. Very Good- ... $6.99
A wonderful crossover club classic! The track's certainly got enough disco to earn its name – but it's also got these cool dark keyboards, jerking along in a Danceteria style that gives the track a very different twist. The cut's quite striking – and the medley flipside has these ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tamla, Mid 60s. Poor ... $9.99

Mary Jane GirlsOnly Four You ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A lasting classic from the funky female foursome who were one of the biggest acts on Motown in the mid-80s – working here with super tight production and arrangements from Rick James – who also wrote all the songs on the record too! The girls' look is a bit dated, but their sound has ... read more CD

Dynamo, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent bit of party funk – and a real precursor to musical party records of the 70s!

Buddah/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99

Harvey's fifth and final album for Arista – another win for the funk-soul-fusion MVP! Given that Harvey worked on some of the best fusion sessions of the 70s, it's more than safe to give him "most valuable player" award – because without his drums, many a record would have ... read more CD

Vaughan Mason & CrewBounce Rock Skate Roll (parts 1 & 2) ... 12-inch
Brunswick, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
What can we say? This is a classic! The track has a monster roller skating groove that's been sampled more than a few times over the years – but which still sounds incredible on its own! Both parts are great – and even though the single's pretty darn long, you still never want it to ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $22.99
Massive!

Hot Buttered Soul/Stax (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders!
