New PrinceAround The World In A Day ... LP
Paisley Park, 1985. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A mad bit of soul psychedelia from Prince – a record that sounds better and better over the years, and which stands out from most of his 80s work thanks to some really unique production and songwriting!

PrinceControversy ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic Prince – an album that signaled an end to the first part of Prince's storied career, leaning heavily on his fascination with new wave, mixed with the r&b grooves and 70s funk of his earliest LPs. Prince is definitely in a transitional mode here, the easy politics of the punk era ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1967. Sealed ... $79.99

Capitol, 1980. Very Good ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from the killer soul years at Capitol Records – the only record we've ever seen from Pyrymyd, a group with grooves as angular as their name!

Rare Earth/Motown, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99
A stone smoker from Rare Earth one of those really early gems by the group – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul!

Rare EarthGet Ready ... LP
Rare Earth, 1969. Very Good ... $3.99
The first really major album from Rare Earth – issued on their own self-named subsidiary of Motown! The set's a perfect blend of the rich undercurrents of the heady Detroit scene of the late 60s – at one level a tripped-out rock record with styles that almost hint at MC5, at another ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Nice lost funk LP released by Casablanca at the end of the 70's. We don't know much about this group, but we've always loved the track "What Is Funk", which has a tight funky backing, and a sort of call and response vocal about how messed up life can be.

Fantasy, 1977. Very Good ... $9.99
A lost bit of jazzy soul from the late 70s – produced by Wayne Henderson with the same great style as his other Fantasy Records sets at the time!

New RedboneBeaded Dreams Through Turquoise Eyes ... LP
Epic, 1974. Sealed ... $9.99
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.

Otis ReddingOtis Blue – Otis Redding Sings Soul ... LP
Volt, 1965. Very Good ... $34.99
Otis Redding Sings Soul – plenty of truth in that – but on this sweet little set, he somehow does it even better than before! The album's got a tightness that's totally great – but it's light years from the smoother soul of Motown, and still has plenty of the gritty Memphis edges ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Martha Reeves & The VandellasSugar N Spice ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
There's a bit more sugar here than spice, but the whole thing's pretty nice Motown work from the late 60's. Martha and the rest of the group groove their way through tracks like "I Love The Man", "Taking My Love (And Leaving Me)", "Soul Appeal", "It Ain't Like ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rene & AngelaStreet Called Desire ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

Phil-LA Of Soul, 1971. Very Good- ... $24.99
An incredible album of deep deep soul!

World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $13.99
A sweet album of funky guitar tracks, with Freddy Robinson out front over a bunch of tight LA Monk Higgins arrangements.

Joe Sample ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1983. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
A very mellow overview of Smokey's later solo work – the post-Quiet Storm period, when he was easily slipping from classic soul into adult contemporary territory – and really crossing over big at the time!

David RuffinIn My Stride ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Later Motown work from David Ruffin, but still pretty darn great – thanks to vocals that rise to the top, no matter what the tune!

Motown, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A strange title, but a great little record – and a real righteous step forward for David Ruffin! Given Ruffin's work for Motown – both as a solo act and in The Temptations – we're hardly likely to associate him with rock and roll – but we can say that the record has David ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus without Chaka Khan – but a surprisingly nice set, nonetheless!

Patrice RushenAnthology Of Patrice Rushen ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Sealed ... $9.99
Classic smooth jazzy funk from the great Patrice Rushen!

Patrice Rushen in a crisp 80s soul mode!

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.

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!

Sopwith CamelMiraculous Hump Returns From The Moon ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

New SOS BandSOS III ... LP
Tabu, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A solid smoker from the SOS Band – maybe one of the group's best-remembered albums, and for good reason too! The set's got a groove that's beautiful right from the start – 80s funk that's really a cut above, and touched with just the right mix of jazzy elements and warmer moments too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sound ExperienceSound Experience Live – At Glen Mills Reform School For Boys ... LP
GSF, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $33.99
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!

South Central Avenue Municipal Blues BandSoul Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP
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.

Nolan StruckI Got Bills To Pay ... LP
Retta's Records, 1985. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A bluesy update on the older style of Nolan Struck – a singer with more of a pedigree in soul, but who'd made a move to a more down-home style by the time of this set.
