Timmy ThomasYou're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing ... CD
Glades/Henry Stone, 1974. Used ... $6.99
A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas!

Fonzi ThorntonLeader ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1983. Used ... $26.99
Slammin' 80s groove material from Fonzi Thornton – a bit dated, perhaps, but sparkling with the best of its generation! Fonzi's vocals are less the strong part of the album than are the tight arrangements that mix together bass riffing, keyboards, and a smooth approach to the groove that ... read more CD

TierraTierra (Salsoul) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $21.99
The first Salsoul album from Tierra – a great west coast Latin soul combo who followed strongly in the tradition of Malo and El Chicano! Like those groups in their later years, Tierra's focus here is more on tunes that have a mellow-grooving soul approach – still Latin in some of the ... read more CD

TimeIce Cream Castle ... CD
Warner, 1984. Used ... $2.99
Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group.

Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than ... read more CD

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and drums – and vocals that often have more than ... read more CD

Allen ToussaintToussaint (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Scepter, 1970. Used ... $5.99
A seminal album from Allen Toussaint – his first big move as a solo act, and the start of some great fame that would blossom even more strongly in the 70s!

Warner, 1973. Used ... $4.99
One of the harder funk albums by Tower Of Power – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease! The group's got a bit of the stoner funk sound that shows their Bay Area roots, but they're also a lot tighter than most of their California contemporaries, and feel ... read more CD

Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
A younger singer, but one with a really solid mix of reggae and soul – an artist who might well be Jamaica's answer to Foster Sylvers or Michael Jackson!

Tommy Tucker may be best-remembered for the title track of this classic album – a tune that was covered by countless other artists in the 60s – but he's a hell of a talent with a mighty great range, and a gritty, soulful sound that's perfect for early 60s Chess Records! The album's got ... read more CD
