Edwin BirdsongWhat It Is ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Very Good- ... $19.99
Wild weird stuff from Edwin Birdsong – an artist who's best known for his work with Roy Ayers during the 70s. This effort's got a very similar righteous soul sound to some of Roy's early work for Polygram – with a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and lots of cosmic wisdom – although ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black HeatBlack Heat ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A searing debut from Black Heat – one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s, and a tight little group with a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk and New York heavy! The album's got a bit of vocals – figuring in on about half the tracks – but the main ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black IvoryFeel It ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sweet mellow soul meets the burgeoning east coast club soul sound – and the results are incredible!

Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1976. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Like a lot of the younger singers from the Doo Wop era, vocalist Fred Parris (from the 5 Satins) made the shift to more modern soul styles as the years went by. This 1976 album has him leading a modern version of the 5 Satins named Black Satin, and recording for Buddah with a similar sound to some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Black Voices (aka The Watts Prophets)On The Street In Watts ... LP
ALA, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A chilling statement from the west coast scene of the 70s – the first album from The Watts Prophets, the ultra-powerful group who emerged from the LA turmoil of the 60s. Like the Last Poets, the group blends together righteous spoken word passages and some spare rhythms and a touch of jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers.

New J BlackfootU Turn ... LP
Edge, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Not as strong as some of Blackfoot's other solo work – a mix of styles that has his roots in the Memphis scene getting a bit of an 80s production touch, sometimes a bit too tinny to sound great, at others rolling into more comfortable territory with a warmer feel. Homer Banks wrote and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason!

BloodstoneTrain Ride To Hollywood – Original Soundtrack ... LP
London, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
Bloodstone's augmented here by a heck of a lot of studio players – more than enough to fill out the needs of the soundtrack to this so-so film from the mid 70s. A few cuts still have the group singing in their better harmony style, but more than a few numbers are remakes of 50s vocal group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Weird World, Late 70s. Sealed (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Excellent stuff from Blow Fly – and a great bit of funk that's a hilarious parody of disco!

New BlowflyBlowfly's Freak Party ... LP
Oops, Late 80s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
It's the 80s, and Blow's really gone over the top! He's working with some tinny arrangements here that are more Prince-like than his 70s funky grooves – and probably to compensate for that, he's turned up the porno language even more than usual, going to town with the bad words on tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments!

Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums!

What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find!
