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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Booker T & The MGsUniversal Language ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Very Good- ... $5.99
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good ... $5.99
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!

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction II ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction III ... LP
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Another killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove!

BreakawayBreakaway (with bonus CD) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
A St Louis combo from the late 70s – with a groove that's equal part jazzy club and blue-eyed soul! Breakaway is the group's debut – recorded in 1977 with a surprisingly tight sound – especially given that the group were essentially a local club act who got the chance to record a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.98
No splashdown here – as Breakwater are every bit as soaringly soulful as they were on their debut set!

New Brenda & The TabulationsI Keep Coming Back For More ... LP
Chocolate City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Sublime second generation soul from Brenda & The Tabulations – a sweet set of Philly grooves, recorded at Sigma sound with help from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and John Davis!

BrickGood High ... LP
Bang, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

New Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Johnny BristolStrangers ... LP
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! The album's got a sweet warm feel – and the richness of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Julius BrockingtonUnited Chair ... LP
Today, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wild funky keyboards from Julius Brockington – a player who worked a bit on both soul and gospel albums during the early 70s, and one of the odder talents in the funky music business. The album's got a nicely off-kilter sound – and most of the tracks are original compositions. Julius ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BrockingtonsBrockingtons ... LP
Today, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really weird little soul set from Julius Brockington and his wife – and one of the most messed-up albums on the always-crazy Today label! The sound here is kind of a more soul-based take on the mode explored by Julius on his albums United Chair and Sophisticated Funk – one that takes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

La La BrooksAll Or Nothing ... LP
Norton, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99
Brand new solo work from La La Brooks of The Crystals – a singer who first worked with Phil Spector when she was only 13 years old – and who still sounds pretty darn great all these many years later!

Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MCA/Get On Down, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
Breakout brilliance from Bobby Brown – and actually not his first solo record – but it's certainly the first one to really show the world he could stand so strongly on his own strongly after leaving New Edition!

Vault, 1969. Very Good- ... $14.99
A righteous treasure from the end of the 60s – an album of vocal tracks recorded by the Minister Of Information for the Black Panther Party, set to backings from the legendary Horace Tapscott! Elaine Brown's less of a soul singer than a powerful speaker who delivers the lyrics with an almost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Universal, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $27.99 34.99
Not a classic from the early years of James Brown – but a later greatest hits package that's gone onto have legendary status – given all the key cuts it includes!

One of James Brown's last great funky records! The record's got a number of nice cuts – like the stone cold funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad, Superslick".

A set put together as the soundtrack for the James Brown bio-pic – but one that features mostly original recordings by The Godfather himself, and a few older cuts altered a bit for the film!

One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash.

Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record!

Atlantic, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Genius work from Solomon Burke – the kind of all-out, no-nonsense soul album that made Atlantic Records one of the strongest forces in the genre during the 60s!

Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman".

Amazing soul from one of the greats of the 60s!

An easy album to overlook, but not without some nice moments!

A collection of work that Jerry cut for Vee Jay – issued on the Up Front label with a cover that's a bit trippy, but a sound that's pure early Jerry.

One of Jerry Butler's funkiest moments of the 70s – served up in a fantastic soundtrack co-penned and arranged by the great Jerry Peters!
