New Johnny AdamsHeart & Soul ... LP
SSS, 1969. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A lost southern soul classic – recorded by Johnny Adams in Nashville, and done in a great blend of country and soul styles!

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Very Good+ ... $22.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A distant star in the Earth Wind & Fire galaxy – and the only album by this sweetly grooving group that owed a lot to the EWF sound!

New Albino GorillaDetroit 1984 ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $18.99
Weird funky rock album by this obscure band on Kama Sutra. The music's pretty funky and instrumental at times, but at other times, there's sort of these bad soulful rock vocals. The best tracks on here are the minute-long interludes between songs. They're all pretty funky, and they have no vocals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen GroupWay It Is (aka Say My Friend) ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Very Good- ... $24.99
A fantastic bit of spacey soul – and an amazing collaboration between the Mizell Brothers and vocalist Rance Allen!

A wicked little set from Carl Anderson – a singer who first found fame on the state, later sung in a spiritual world, but does an especially great job here!

A wonderful debut from Aquarian Dream – a group who first appeared under the direction of Norman Connors – and who also have lots of the same blend of jazz, soul, and funk you'd find in Connors' own music of the time! Yet Aquarian Dream are very much their own bag, too – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joan ArmatradingWalk Under Ladders ... LP
A&M, 1981. Very Good ... $0.49
Early 80s synthy soul and new wave sounds from Joan Armatrading – really taking her earlier, kind of folk soul based sound confidently into the early 80s keyboard heavy grooves with some pronounced Caribbean flourishes!

Sonic, 1977. Very Good ... $13.99
An excellent lost bit of funk and comedy from the south side of Chicago!

BloodstoneDo You Wanna Do A Thing? ... LP
London, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BlowflyBlowfly Disco ... LP
Weird World, Late 70s. Good+ ... $6.99
Excellent stuff from Blow Fly – and a great bit of funk that's a hilarious parody of disco! Blow's band funks it up with riffs that you'd hear from The JBs, BT Express, or other groups of the time – while Blow himself sings these very off-color, and very funny lyrics that rip off the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MagicBlue Magic ... LP
Atco, 1974. Sealed ... $19.99
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Blue MagicMagic Of The Blue ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
Was there ever a better harmony soul group than Blue Magic? Hearing a record like this, it's hard to think so – and the album's pure east coast magic all the way through! The group still manage to keep the fragile quality that made their first work so great, but they've also got a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Angela BofillTeaser ... LP
Arista, 1983. Very Good+ ... $0.99
An album that further cements Angela Bofill's relationship with Narada Michael Walden – as Walden produced almost every track in the set, and does a fair bit of songwriting too! The style is electric 80s soul, with a fair bit of keyboards and beats in the mix – but as usual with Bofill ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New BohannonBohannon ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
A massive amount of fast funk groovers from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – just the kind of skittish, upbeat, and totally amazing tracks that have made him a legend for years! The sound is really stripped down – usually just bass, drums, and guitar – wrapped together in this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a wrinkled corner.)

New BohannonCut Loose ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great set of clubby tunes from Bohannon – a bit discoey, to be sure, but still with plenty of the odd rhythms and odd touches of his earlier work! The tracks here are all long and chunky – made up of strutting drum bits that are far from conventional, often topped by oddly riffing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BombersBombers ... LP
West End, 1978. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the more guitar-driven groups on the West End label at the end of the 70s – an outfit with a really great approach to cutting longer dancefloor grooves! Tracks on the album have a nice tight feel that's echoed strongly by the guitar and keyboard work on the tracks – not as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Booker T & The MGsBooker T Set ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good ... $6.99
Later work from Booker T and crew – an album that always gets lost in the shuffle, but which also includes lots of great moments, and a bit more funk than in earlier years!

New Booker T & The MGsDoin' Our Thing ... LP
Stax, 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Booker T & The MGs – definitely doing their thing on this late 60s cooker – and moving their instrumental sound into a whole new range than before!

Booker T & The MGsSoul Limbo ... LP
Stax, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Very hip work from Booker T & The MGs – an album that has them standing out under a pier by the ocean on the cover – clearly a long way from their Memphis roots! The sound here still has a good dose of those roots, though – but it also shows them picking up some hipper ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good ... $7.99
A classic set that goes "slam" from the very first note – and which helped to set the pace for countless ensemble funk acts to come!

United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic!

BreakwaterBreakwater ... LP
Arista, 1978. Very Good- ... $5.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bang, 1977. Very Good- ... $2.99
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves – absolutely killing it early on with this self-titled second album!

BrickGood High ... LP
Bang, 1976. Very Good ... $2.99
A killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MGM, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
The first solo album from Johnny Bristol – a genius soul talent who did a bunch of great work for Motown as a writer and arranger, breaking out here on his own!

Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Excellent smooth soul from Johnny Bristol – working here in territory that's a lot more sophisticated than his earlier work, in the same vein as smooth modern soul singers like Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, or Prince Phillip Mitchell!

Brother To BrotherLet Your Mind Be Free ... LP
Turbo, 1976. Very Good ... $1.99
The second album by this lost East Coast funk act – and although not as totally excellent as their first, still a very nice record that's filled with choppy up-tempo grooves, and some nice dancefloor soul. There's plenty of funky keyboards in the mix – moog, clavinet, and Arp – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 1988. Near Mint- ... $6.99

James BrownBody Heat – Live At Studio 54 ... LP
Phoenix10, 1982. Very Good ... $6.99
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownExcitement ... LP
King, 1962. Very Good- ... $22.99
A darn hard to find album by James – one with a tight soulful R&B groove that just about never lets up! Even on these early albums, James had a great raw sound, with a kind of funk that wasn't his trademark 70s sound, but which is still nice and tasty. Titles include "Shout & ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New James BrownFederal Years Part 2 ... LP
Solid Smoke, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An excellent compilation that brings together some of James Brown's earliest work – his late 50s R&B sides for the Federal subsidiary of King, ruffer tuffer sides than most of his 60s recordings. Most of the tracks on here have backing vocals by The Flames – and the set is a really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great lost album from James Brown – and totally funky!

Quite possibly THE James Brown album of the mid 60s – a solid set of hard-grooving tracks, based around the monster title hit "I Got You (I Feel Good)"! The tune's one of those numbers that has been used a gajillion times over the years in commercials and promos – but which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
