BloodstoneNatural High ... LP
London, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from Bloodstone – an album that may be the group's best-remembered effort, and for good reason too! The album sets a whole new standard for harmony soul in the 70s – one that's tighter than some of the east coast groups, yet never too slick or polished – kind of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BlowflyBlowfly Disco ... LP
Weird World, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Excellent stuff from Blow Fly – and a great bit of funk that's a hilarious parody of disco! Blow's band funks it up with riffs that you'd hear from The JBs, BT Express, or other groups of the time – while Blow himself sings these very off-color, and very funny lyrics that rip off the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BlowflyZodiac Blowfly ... LP
Weird World, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the greatest Blowfly records ever! The album follows in the tradition of Cannonball Adderley's Zodiac albums – and offers up some excellent funky tunes, all based around the different symbols of the zodiac, and all done with the usual Blowfly porno sense of humor! The backing is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue NotesTruth Has Come To Light ... LP
Glades, 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A strange but great chapter of The Blue Notes – working here without Harold Melvin or Teddy Pendergrass, but still sounding pretty great on their own! This version of The Blue Notes is a male quartet – not the Melvin group with Sharon Paige who were recording for ABC – and they ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Bo & The Soul FindersHook & Sling ... LP
Tuff City/Funky Delicacies, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 17.98
Excellent compilation of tight funky New Orleans tracks by the great Eddie Bo. You may know him from his classic sample cut "Hook & Sling", but there's loads of other great cuts on here, most of which never got reissued, and which never turn up on original 45s. Hot cuts here include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BohannonBohannon ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
A massive amount of fast funk groovers from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – just the kind of skittish, upbeat, and totally amazing tracks that have made him a legend for years! The sound is really stripped down – usually just bass, drums, and guitar – wrapped together in this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a cut corner, some seam splitting, a sticker, and some marker on the front. Label has some marker.)

BohannonPhase II ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice disco record from Hamilton Bohannon.

BohannonStop & Go ... LP
Dakar, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer bit of early funk from the great Hamilton Bohannon – and quite possibly his greatest album ever – a really unique approach to funky rhythms, with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The album's got a slower funk sound than Bohannon's later disco groove a few ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsDoin' Our Thing ... LP
Stax, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
Booker T & The MGs – definitely doing their thing on this late 60s cooker – and moving their instrumental sound into a whole new range than before!

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug-Her ... LP
Stax, 1967. Very Good- ... $19.99
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.98
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album. If you've ever thought that Abbey Road was a soft-rock ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsMelting Pot ... LP
Stax, 1971. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work!

New Booker T & The MGsSoul Dressing ... LP
Stax, 1965. Very Good ... $24.99
A great little record from Booker T and group – often overlooked amidst the range between Green Onions and Melting Pot, but a very strong album of soulful Memphis instrumentals all the way through!

Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Boppers (aka LA Boppers)Boppers ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Classic jazzy vocal funk, produced by the At-Home productions team, and with the kind of scatting jazz harmonies that At-Home also worked with on the Side Effect albums. The group later went onto become the LA Boppers, and record for Mercury, but this album has more of a straight jazz funk feel, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tiny BradshawTribute To The Late Tiny Bradshaw – The Great Composer – He Wrote & Played Them All ... LP
King, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Of all the R&B bandleaders of the 50s, Tiny Bradshaw was one of the wildest! He had a tight rolling groove that managed to infuse his whole band with a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and he also managed to hire some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good ... $7.99
A classic set that goes "slam" from the very first note – and which helped to set the pace for countless ensemble funk acts to come! Brass Construction had a wonderful sound that was the best-realized version of the east coast indie club combos of the mid 70s – funky at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Brass ConstructionBrass Construction II ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic!

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction III ... LP
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Another killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove! The group's a bit one, but they've got a tightness that's really incredible – horns, bass, keys, and drums all focused together perfectly – hitting a pulsating rhythmic line that's perfect ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a creased corner.)

BreakawayBreakaway (with bonus CD) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
A St Louis combo from the late 70s – with a groove that's equal part jazzy club and blue-eyed soul! Breakaway is the group's debut – recorded in 1977 with a surprisingly tight sound – especially given that the group were essentially a local club act who got the chance to record a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BreakwaterSplashdown ... LP
Arista, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
No splashdown here – as Breakwater are every bit as soaringly soulful as they were on their debut set! The groove here is that perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New BrickStoneheart ... LP
Bang/CBS, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
Damn fine work from Brick – a group who's even tighter here than before – yet all without ever sounding too slick or commercial!

Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $11.99
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnny BristolHang On In There Baby ... LP
MGM, 1974. Very Good ... $2.99
The first solo album from Johnny Bristol – a genius soul talent who did a bunch of great work for Motown as a writer and arranger, breaking out here on his own!

Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky keyboard tracks from Julius Brockington – a mad early 70s figure who not only cut some wild funk, but who also ended up doing a fair bit of gospel work in later years. This set's a good bit of stoner funk tracks – in the wilder mode of the Perception/Today label – and it's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Julius BrockingtonUnited Chair ... LP
Today, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wild funky keyboards from Julius Brockington – a player who worked a bit on both soul and gospel albums during the early 70s, and one of the odder talents in the funky music business.

Today, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
A really weird little soul set from Julius Brockington and his wife – and one of the most messed-up albums on the always-crazy Today label!
