New Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good- ... $5.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie.

Millie SmallMy Boy Lollipop ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $22.99
A novelty hit, but a real crossover moment in the growth of Jamaican music! The album's well known for its huge hit "My Boy Lollipop" – a catchy number sung in the "blue beat" style that would soon become better known as rocksteady – but Millie's got a pretty nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia! OC's working in a country soul mode that draws on a tradition shared by Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Ray Charles, and others – turning the genre towards a more pop-driven version of country, the kind that was ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sylvia SmithWoman Of The World ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good- ... $6.99
Pretty nice 70's female soul stuff, recorded by a woman that we know nothing about, and with arrangements by Michael Omartian.

A sublime bit of east coast soul – and the only full album ever cut by this heavenly-voiced trio!

Smoke CityI Really Want You ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A damn great bit of 80s soul – the only album ever issued by Smoke City, but a killer set that we've loved for many years – especially given the group's link to the Chicago scene! The set's perfectly put together – head and shoulders above so much other major label soul of the ... read more CD

SoftonesBlack Magic ... LP
H&L, 1977. Sealed ... $11.99
A funkier set than the first one by The Softones – and a record that has the group picking up a bit more confidence in their groove!

Sons Of ChamplinSons Of Champlin Have Changed Their Name To The Sons ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Sealed ... $19.99
The second album from The Sons Of Champlin – a record that actually has the group shortening their name to The Sons, but expanding their sound past the jamming bluesy roots of their debut!

Sopwith CamelMiraculous Hump Returns From The Moon ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Probably the rarest of the three albums issued by this early 70s funk ensemble – a tight live effort cut right around the same time as Kool & the Gang's live sets, and with a very similar feel!

Lost harmony soul by an excellent New Orleans vocal group!
