Obscure modern soul album on United Artists, with a strong sound that's heading towards an 80s groove, but which also has elements of Luther's work during the late 70s.

United Artists/Solaris, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Sublime work from Leon Ware – the mellow soul master who's one of our favorite talents of the 70s! This album is Leon's first – recorded years before he did his records for Motown and Elektra – and it's done with a less polished sound that's a striking contrast to some of his ... read more CD

Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Seminal modern soul from the great Leon Ware – an artist who had a great influence on the sound of mellow Motown in the 70s, but who's sounding even better here in an early 80s California groove!

Amazing stuff! Arguably Leon Ware's greatest record – and one of the greatest Motown records of the 70s!

Beautiful soul vocals from Dee Dee Warwick – the entirety of her work for Atco – all of it recorded between 1970 and 1972!

Wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's lesser-known sister – a hell of a great singer, and one who packs even more punch than her famous sibling! The gem of a set has all the poise and class of Dionne, but comes across with a lot more soul as well – a great mix that's very much in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1983. Sealed ... $0.99
Dionne Warwick steps out strongly with some great production help from Luther Vandross – who gives the lady a groove that's possibly even tighter than on her other Arista albums, really shaking off some of her more familiar modes, and going for a powerful 80s sound. There's still some good ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime mid 70s work from Johnny Guitar Watson – a Bay Area blend of soulful production, jazzy playing, and bits of bluesy phrasing, with a hard-to-match quality that we'd put in the same camp as work by Shuggie Otis from the time.
