Allen ToussaintToussaint (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Scepter, 1970. Used ... $7.99
A seminal album from Allen Toussaint – his first big move as a solo act, and the start of some great fame that would blossom even more strongly in the 70s! This indie effort has a rougher edge than Allen's later albums at Warner Brothers – a sly, wicked slow funk approach that's a real ... read more CD

New Tower Of PowerBack On The Streets ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Heavy funk from Tower Of Power – almost more back in the group's earlier mode, which might be what they mean by the title!

Warner, 1973. Used ... $4.99
One of the harder funk albums by Tower Of Power – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease! The group's got a bit of the stoner funk sound that shows their Bay Area roots, but they're also a lot tighter than most of their California contemporaries, and feel ... read more CD

RCA/Sixth Avenue, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A really wonderful bit of group soul from the 70s – the debut effort from a quintet who'd worked hawking goods on TV at the time, but who are getting some tight production here from Lou Courtney – who pushes the album into much hipper territory than you might expect. Carol's in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Not the group's most famous work, but a really strong batch of Philly soul tracks – with production and arrangements by Ron Baker and Norman Harris, in a blinding Sigma Sound mode that shows that the Philly Groove could still be kicking it large in the late 70s.

A great bit of funk from this obscure 70s combo – the first of their many good albums, and with a sound that's rougher and rawer than the others.

Early work from Trouble Funk – so early, they're listed as "Trouble" on the label!

This may pass for straight up funk in DC, but to us it's a mad percolating Go Go jam, and that's nothing to complain about.
