MajesticsOtis Redding – The Soul King – A Tribute ... LP
ARC, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very hip tribute to Otis Redding – one that has The Majestics hitting hard in an instrumental mode that's almost like some of the Mar-Keys or Bar-Kays work on Stax from the mid 60s – tight drums on the bottom, Hammond and guitar grooving in the middle, and some occasional horns ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New MandreMandre ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
We have to admit we've passed this album up for years and years, as it seems to be rather ubiquitous in these parts, and boy were we mistaken! Side one is mostly instrumental, and sounds like a lost Dexter Wansel album, with sophisticated, spacey post-fusion arrangements and a quasi-futuristic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MandrillWe Are One (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Robinsongs (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderfully tight work from Mandrill – a real standout from the years at Arista – and a set that seems to take all the key instrumental energy of the Polydor years, and focus it on a soulful groove that's even more soaring than before! The energy is wonderful – very much like the ... read more CD

Arista, 1977. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Ali at his best – starring in this excellent film from the mid 70s, with a screenplay written by longtime boxing expert Muhammad Ali! The soundtrack's pretty nice and funky at times – and features the extended clubby groover "Ali Bombaye" – an almost Afro Funk-ish tune, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A real classic from The Manhattans – and just the kind of record to show why the group stayed so great after all the years! The ballads are wonderful – arguably even better than the group's indie label days – with a depth of feeling, fullness of harmonies, and magical balance ... read more CD

New ManhattansKiss & Say Goodbye – Best Of The Manhattans ... CD
Columbia, 1970s. Used ... $2.99
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s. By that time, the band had more ... read more CD

ManhattansToo Hot To Stop It ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $18.99
A different sound than the Manhattans of the 70s – but a set that's still got some wonderful harmonies throughout! The production has a modern sort of 80s crackle – more beats and keyboards than before, but also some standout acapella moments that hearken back to an old school style of ... read more CD

Gordy, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stone classic from Teena Marie – one of her magical self-produced efforts for Motown! The record's a winner all the way through – with a depth to the vocals and backings that are steeped in the 70s styles of Minnie Riperton and Chaka Khan. A few tracks get a bit upbeat funky, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the greatest album that Teena Marie ever cut – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of the lady's work for Motown!

Prelude/Unidisc, 1984. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A wonderful crossover club classic! The track's certainly got enough disco to earn its name – but it's also got these cool dark keyboards, jerking along in a Danceteria style that gives the track a very different twist. The cut's quite striking – and the medley flipside has these ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
