New MasterfleetHigh On The Sea ... LP
Sussex, 1973. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Unlike a lot of the east coast bands on the Sussex label, Masterfleet hailed from California – Compton, to be exact (which was also the home of The Jackson Sisters, The Sylvers, and War). This hard to find debut album is a mix of vocal soul tracks that have an East Coast sound, with other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A great later production by Norman Whitfield – and one that almost returns to the simpler harmony soul of 60s Motown! Masterpiece have a style that's much more fragile and sweet than other groups on the Whitfield label – which was mostly dedicated to fuller and dancefloor soul. The ... read more CD

MasterplanElectric Baile (commercial mix, small dub, large dub) ... 12-inch
Sunset/Still Music, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
The groove here is a combination of Chicago house and some light electric Latin touches – hence the "baile" in the title! The groove is relatively straightforward on the main mix – complete with a catchy female vocal – but the dubs really take off into greater territory ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

An overlooked 80s soul gem from Kathy Mathis – a set that's got the nicely bouncy groove we love so much in Tabu Records set from the time, and a quality level that's even deeper than the usual records we know from the label!

Tabu (UK), 1988. New Copy ... $10.99
An overlooked bit of 80s soul from Kathy Mathis – a set that's got the same sort of bounce we love from other work of the time on Tabu Records, served up in a mix of mature ballads and some much more groove-heavy numbers! Kathy's definitely got what it takes to rise up to setting of the ... read more CD

Nathaniel MayerVillage Of Love ... CD
Gold Dust (Italy), Mid 50s. Used ... $2.99
Stormin' R&B stuff by this lost 50's artist – best known for the stormin' doo-woppy groover "Village of Love"! The 21 tracks on here all have a similar feel to that one – that is, stripped down, with weird instrumentation, and a kind of almost tribal feel in parts. Wild ... read more CD

Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover!

New Curtis MayfieldCurtis In Chicago ... CD
Curtom/Charly, Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Curtis Mayfield, and a heck of a lot of greatness from the Chicago scene of the early 70s – music that comes from a rare TV special that also features guest appearances from Leroy Hutson, Jerry Butler, and Gene Chandler!

New Curtis MayfieldCurtis/Live! ... LP
Curtom, 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $16.99
We think this may be his best album ever! Caught live at a small club, with a tight band, Curtis delivers extended, intimate versions of some of his best work, like "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue" and "Stare and Stare". We can't recommend this highly enough, and there' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Curtis MayfieldGot To Find A Way ... CD
Charly, 1974. Used ... $6.99
A great album that's often overlooked amidst the flurry of early 70s releases on Curtom, but which stands as one of Mayfield's greatest from the 70s! In fact, we'd say that the album's one that we enjoy putting on more than most – because the songs are less familiar, and not nearly as played- ... read more CD

Curtom, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great album by Curtis Mayfield – filled with some excellent lesser-known gems!

ABC, 1960s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A nice mid 70s collection of classic 60s ABC work by Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions.

Sunset/Still Music, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
One of the coolest, bassiest tracks on the Sunset label from Chicago's house glory days – a tune that builds beautifully over 7 minutes – with vocals that crackle soulfully when a female singer comes to join Ben's lead – but which also lay back and let the bass and keys take over ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze!

There's a slight ... read more CD

Synthonic (Italy), Early 80s. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $5.99
A cool bit of space synth from the early 80s – a very cosmic-sounding tune that's almost a Kraftwerk extension towards a dancefloor groove! The cut builds nicely on bubbling basslines and sky-soaring keyboards – never too polished to sound cheesy, and treated really well on the remix ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
