Kudu, 1972. Very Good- ... $2.99
One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time!

Early work by David Porter – done in a style that's very similar to early solo work by his old writing partner Isaac Hayes.

Otis Redding Sings Soul – plenty of truth in that – but on this sweet little set, he somehow does it even better than before!

Alfie SilasAlfie ... LP
RCA, 1982. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Sweet crossover grooves from Alfie Silas – a singer with the same hook-heavy approach used by other 80s female singers like Denice Williams or Cheryl Lynn – set up here with some great grooves to match! The tunes are all pretty upbeat and catchy – playful tunes that never try too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Valerie SimpsonValerie Simpson ... LP
Tamla, 1972. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Although Valerie Simpson's on her own as the singer here, Nick Ashford was in the studio for most of the set, helping Valerie produce and write most of the cuts on the album. The record's got kind of a hip soul sound that's more LA than Motown – and although we're not always sure it works ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sister SledgeWe Are Family ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Possibly the greatest moment ever from Sister Sledge – a set that has the Philly quartet teaming with the Chic team of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards! Rodgers' guitar brings in a hell of a groove to the record – that choppy, skittish sound that made Chic such a favorite at the time ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SlaveJust A Touch Of Love ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Tight bass-heavy funk from Slave – still working here in that excellent compressed style that was their unique contribution to soul music. There's probably a bit more of a vocal-heavy sound here than on other albums, but the groove's still strong, and is reaching a bit towards an 80s club ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family StoneDance To The Music ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic funkiness from Sly & The Family Stone – an album that really pushed them to the top of their game, and exploded on the late 60s scene like a righteous funky bomb! The title cut's a mega-hit that you'll recognize right away – but the whole album's great, and is filled with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has a piece of clear tape on one corner.)

Sly & The Family StoneFresh ... LP
Epic, 1973. Sealed Gatefold ... $38.99
Sly's leaping into the air on the cover of this one – and for good reason too, given the overall groove of the set! The album's a bit more stripped-down and upbeat than the previous few – almost more of a return to the simple funky style of the first albums, but with a slightly more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sly & The Family StoneStand! ... LP
Epic, 1968. Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way. The album's filled with anthemic numbers like ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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 Smoke (aka Black Smoke)Smoke ... LP
Chocolate City, 1976. Sealed ... $9.99
This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, but with the same cover. The band's a mixed ensemble of funk players – and they've got a sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Phoebe SnowNever Letting Go ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
Phoebe Snow's warming things up a bit here – reaching for some slightly fuller production at times, yet never losing the intimacy that's always made her music so great! Snow's a unique 70s enigma – not really soul, not really mellow pop, not even jazz – but somewhere up on top of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SoftonesSoftones ... LP
Avco, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A stellar first set from The Softones – labelmates of The Stylistics in their early years, and a group who really share a similar sense of east coast harmony soul! There's a nicely fragile approach to the group at all the best moments – a style that's better than shakey indie soul, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

TSOP, 1974. Very Good- ... $3.99
A surprisingly nice record by the group who scored big in the late 60s with "Expressway to Your Heart" – and who continued to be one of the best blue eyed soul acts working on the east coast!

GSF, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
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! The group are playing before a very enthusiastic audience at a small-time school for boys ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bluesway/ABC, Late 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
Forget the "blues" in the title – because this is funky jazz from LA! The record was one of many in the "Bonnie & Clyde" subgenre of the late 60s, released to cash in on either the fame of the movie or the single "Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde" – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1980. Sealed ... $0.99
There's plenty of lovin here, but even more dancin too – thanks to production and arrangements from disco maestro Michael Zager!

SpinnersHappiness Is Being With The Spinners ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good ... $0.49
An album in the kind of "between the hits" years for The Spinners featuring lead vocalist Phillipe Wynne.
