A funky treasure – finally unleashed!

Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible funky soundtrack – one of the best of the blacksploitation generation, and one of the rarest too!

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 15.99
A great litle early album from Ann Peebles – rawer than most of her more familiar stuff, with a gutbuckety soul quality that really keeps things fresh!

New Greg PerryOne For The Road ... LP
Casablanca, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
An excellent album of obscure mellow soul – very much in the same mode as Leroy Hutson or Ronnie McNeir's best work from the 70s!

An excellent collection of rare piano instrumentals by Bobby Peterson and his smoking combo!

Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $11.99
The classic Atlantic LP that turned Esther from a rough-hewn, junkie, juvenile R&B singer into a sensitive interpreter of ballads, standards, and pop tracks.

New Wilson PickettPickett In The Pocket ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Harder to find album by The Wicked Pickett, recorded in Muscle Shoals, and released with a cover that has him shooting pool with a bunch of ladies.

PleasureGive It Up ... LP
RCA, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
Great later work from Pleasure – a group who are probably best-known for their classic 70s albums on Fantasy Records, but one who kept the groove riding high in some early 80s years at RCA!

David PorterInto A Real Thing ... LP
Enterprise, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $12.99
Early work by David Porter – done in a style that's very similar to early solo work by his old writing partner Isaac Hayes.

Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Well, we don't think we'd call this the most exciting organ ever – but the record is one of Billy's best, and it's got a hard wailing raw groove that's missing from a lot of his later work!

Gertie/Rush Hour (Netherlands), 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
An early 90s set of house instrumentals, but one that really lives up to the rootsier promise of the cover – as the album's actually one of the earlier moments of more tribal rhythms on the New York scene – kind of a precursor to more globally conscious dancefloor sounds to come!

Classic work from this massively overlooked 70s soul singer!

Tight funky soul from Quazar! This relatively overlooked group is one of the lesse-remembered P-Funk-linked acts of the late 70s – which is a shame, as it's a great little side project from the team of Glenn Goins and Jerome Brailey – and one with a bass and drums-heavy party groove! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the coolest club projects of the 70s – a set of tracks based around the keyboards of Don Ray, but handled with lots of electronic disco touches from Cerrone!

Epic, 1974. Sealed ... $8.99
Despite the Native American theme of the title, the group, and the cover image, the set is mostly a pretty straight mix of soul and rock, mid 70s crossover material with a flanged-out LA kind of appeal. Titles include "Interstate Highway 101", "Blood Sweat & Tears", "Co ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Rene & AngelaStreet Called Desire ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A bit late in the game for Rene & Angela, though they're still pumping out some classic 80s groove numbers, with Angela Winbush's flair for great songs. There's a few numbers here that are moving a bit too far into the commercial radio slow jam territory for our tastes, but there's a couple of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RevelationRevelation (1982) ... LP
Handshake, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A lost soul treasure from the early 80s – the last album we've ever seen from the group Revelation, and an excellent outing that holds up the high level of quality from their earlier albums!

ABC, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The third in a really great run from Rhythm Heritage – a group who continued to hold up a strong level of instrumental quality, despite the fact that they'd topped the charts, and were smack right in the middle of the LA studio scene at the time!

Maybe our favorite-ever album from Minnie Riperton during the 70s – a sweet, smooth jazzy gem that really makes some of the best use of her vocals!

New Freddie RobinsonOff The Cuff ... LP
Enterprise, 1973. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A great bit of funky guitar work from Freddie Robinson – a player who clearly started out with a bluesy backing, but managed a real super-dope sound by the time of his 70s work for Stax! Part of the sound is that Freddie's using a hollow-body electric – giving him a style that's a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
