Plunky & OnenessNever Too Late ... CD
Name Brand Records, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
One of the deeper albums we've heard from Plunky in awhile – a set that's still got some of the smoother jazzy styles of his past decade or two, but one that also seems to offer a lot of input from a younger, fresher generation too! The "Oneness" on the cover is well-put – as ... read more CD

Pointer SistersBreak Out ... CD
Planet, 1983. Used ... $2.99
The Pointer Sisters were superstars before 1983's Break Out, and this appropriately titled album shot them to stratospheric heights in popularity – with good reason, as this is some of the catchiest, hookiest pop and/or soul of the past few decades!

Pointer SistersHaving A Party ... CD
Blue Thumb/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
The name may be a bit hokey, but this is one heck of a great little record – every bit as sly and funky as work on the group's excellent Steppin album! The man to thank here is Sonny Burke – who handled arrangement and direction of the backings – and who brings in plenty of heavy ... read more CD

A sweet set of Earth Wind & Fire-inspired grooves from Poison – an obscure 70s funk combo that hailed from Richmond, VA! The group's outfits, righteousness, and instrumentation clearly show a strong debt to EWF – but there's also a roughness to some of the tracks that belies their ... read more CD

Derby/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
Easily one of the coolest, hippest, and most soulful records that Billy Preston ever cut – very different both from his famous work on A&M, and his early sides for Apple and Vee Jay – and done with a raw groove that makes each cut feel like some rare funky 45! The style here is a ... read more CD

Paisley Park, 1990. Used ... $2.99
Well, it wasn't Purple Rain – nor Parade – but this 3rd Prince soundtrack still had some nice moments, thanks to an ever-expanding Paisley Park family that included George Clinton, Morris Day, and Mavis Staples!

Paisley Park, 1986. New Copy ... $3.99 4.98
Prince in near-peak form in the mid 80 – creatively, anyway! Parade is a brilliant stand-alone album, tough it doubles as a soundtrack to a film that flopped – standing today as one of our favorite Prince albums from the 80s! Includes the massively funky "Kiss", the closest ... read more CD

Columbia/FTG, 1985. Used ... $8.99
A nearly-lost relic of 80s groove – and a sharp little side project from Rick James! Process and group are clearly going for a sound to rival the Time on this set – working as a well-costumed group ensemble with a bass-heavy funky groove at the bottom of every track – and their ... read more CD
