Nolan Strong & The DiablosFortune Of Hits Vol 2 ... LP
Fortune, Late 50s. Sealed ... $16.99
Sublime Detroit doo wop from Nolan Strong & The Diablos – one of the key groups in the motor city before the big 60s Motown soul explosion! A dozen tracks are included in this second volume of mellow vocal group tunes, including "Adios My Deserty Love", "Baby Be Mine" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing, most likely from the 80s – in great shape!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nolan StruckI Got Bills To Pay ... LP
Retta's Records, 1985. Near Mint- ... $0.99
A bluesy update on the older style of Nolan Struck – a singer with more of a pedigree in soul, but who'd made a move to a more down-home style by the time of this set. Production is a bit modern, but still pretty strong – and there's a nice focus on Nolan's vocals, which have a well-cra ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

StuffStuff It ... LP
Warner/Just Sunshine, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Late 70s soul fusion from masters of the groove – perhaps the best ever by the late 70s supergroup Stuff – featuring a core group that includes Cornell Dupree, Steve Gadd, Eric Gale, and Richard Tee!

Style CouncilMy Ever Changing Moods ... LP
Geffen, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Say what you want, we love this album! When it came out, we were such big Jam fans that we could never forgive Paul Weller – but now, nearly 20 years later, we're stunned at how great some of the soul songs on the album are. Sure, you've got to throw away about half the tracks – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

StylisticsHurry Up This Way Again ... LP
TSOP, 1980. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A huge change from the early sound of The Stylistics – as the group have moved to Philly International, and are really shining in the light of the Gamble & Huff galaxy! The album's got a lot more grooves than before, but still offers up plenty of space for the trademark mellow ballads ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

StylisticsRockin' Roll Baby ... LP
Avco, 1973. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The third album by The Stylistics – and a set that's still very much in the high-harmony territory of their first two classics! Thom Bell's still very firmly on deck this time around – arranging, producing, and writing a good deal of the material too – and the Sigma Sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

StylisticsStylistics ... LP
Avco, 1971. Good+ ... $6.99
A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics! The album really took vocal soul to a whole new level for the 70s – pushing from the sometimes fragile ballad style of the late 60s into a smoother, more mature sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
StylisticsThank You Baby ... LP
H&L, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Maybe one of the last early "classic" albums from The Stylistics – a record that still preserves the fragile harmonies of their best work at moments, and avoids most of the pitfalls of their late 70s mis-steps! Van McCoy handled arrangements here – and he's mostly in a mode ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and a crease on one corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
StylisticsWonder Woman ... LP
H&L, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The Stylistics work their way through a nice batch of material by Hugo & Luigi. The sound's not entirely the same as their earlier work with Thom Bell, but there's some very nice moments – thanks to good arrangements by Horace Ott. Titles include "Wonder Woman", "Good ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SugarfootSugar Kiss ... LP
Warner, 1985. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Bass-heavy 80s funk from the days when Roger Troutman was practically running the soul department at Warner Brothers! Sugarfoot plays guitar and sings on the set – working with an all star group of Zapp-related players, and grooving in a very Zapp-styled sound. Roger produced, Larry's all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SunDestination Sun ... LP
Capitol, 1979. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Massive work from Sun – a large ensemble funk group who somehow managed to groove with the grace of a small combo! The album's got a sweetly compressed sound that's really setting the stage for 80s groove – lots of sweet keyboard and bass licks dancing around each other in a style that' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
SunEclipse ... LP
Air, 1984. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Post-Capitol work from Sun, but still in a very similar groove – bumping nicely on the bottom with lots of funky basslines – and definitely still in that Ohio groove of the early 80s! The sound's almost a bit more indie than before – quite a surprise for a group with so many ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sunday's ChildSunday's Child ... LP
Sunnyside/Reprise, 1970. Very Good- ... $6.99
A pretty great trio of female vocalists – taking that 60s Motown sound into a deeper vein, like the work of the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic during the same time. The album's got a nice rootsy sound – despite its LA roots – and the girls alternate between singing harmonies and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1966. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SupremesWhere Did Our Love Go (Natural Resources) ... LP
Motown, 1964. Very Good+ (reissue)... $3.99
About as classic as you can get for the early Supremes – a set that has the group really hitting hard on all levels, thanks to production from the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, plus a bit of help from Smokey Robinson – all of whom really help push the Supremes out of simple girl group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cream, 1972. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An unusual session recorded by Swamp Dogg for Hi Records at the start of the 70s – a bit more polished and less full-on nasty than some of the usual Dogg grooves from the 70s, but still with plenty of that heavy Jerry Williams groove at the bottom! The album's got a nice tightness that we ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sweat BandSweat Band ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1980. Very Good ... $6.99
A tasty bit of late P-Funk! The album was recorded in 1980, on the wane of the main P-Funk groups – and it features Bootsy and Fred Wesley teaming up on the arrangements, in a set of bass-heavy, mostly instrumental tracks that groove hard like the best early work by Zapp! There's a great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Charles (aka Charles Sherell)For Sweet People From Sweet Charles ... LP
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A supremely fantastic album, and one that's always woefully overlooked in discussions of James Brown's incredible People label!

Sweet InspirationsSweets For My Sweet ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Wonderful soul by one of the best female groups of the 60s! The Sweet Inspirations work here in a southern-tinged style similar to their classic backing work for Aretha Franklin – a sound that was already great behind Aretha, but which is even better here on its own – warm, spiritual, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Swing Out SisterIt's Better To Travel ... LP
Mercury, 1987. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A surprisingly great guilty pleasure from the 80s – the first album from Swing Out Sister, recorded when all the excitement of the UK post punk scene had just about faded, and most of the groups had left their exciting early roots behind.

SwitchSwitch ... LP
Gordy, 1978. Very Good ... $2.99
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families!

SylversSylvers ... LP
Pride, 1972. Very Good+ ... $44.99
The first album by The Sylvers – a hard soulful band made up of youngsters from LA, but who had a lot more going on than some of the other kiddie-soul bands of the early 70s! The group's a sextet at this point, with four male voices and two female ones – coming across as a sweet blend ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet!

Mid 70's album of funky soul tracks cut by ex-Gator Willie Tee, with a number of other members of the Gators, for United Artists.

New Teen QueensEddie My Love ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $29.99
The Teen Queens were a hip R&B duo who deserve a lot more credit than their silly name might make you think. They had a style that was part raw R&B, and part 60s girl group, years before the girl group format was around long enough to become a cliche! LP, Vinyl record album

TribeEthnic Stew ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good ... $9.99
A great bit of funk from this obscure 70s combo – the first of their many good albums, and with a sound that's rougher and rawer than the others. The band's grooving in a pretty slow mode here – without the uptempo club tracks of later years – and they've got a style that's a mix ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Trouble FunkStraight Up Funk Go Go Style – Trouble Funk Live ... LP
JAMTU, 1981. Very Good- 2LP ... $9.99
This may pass for straight up funk in DC, but to us it's a mad percolating Go Go jam, and that's nothing to complain about. T Funk lets loose with batteries of drum rolls, clattering Go Go percussion, heavy bass and space age synthesizer. The bombs get dropped non stop on this bouncing live set, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TS MonkHouse Of Music ... LP
Mirage/Atlantic, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Livin' the "Bon Bon Vie", with this classic uptempo groover from T.S. Monk! You'd hardly guess that this guy was Thelonious Monk's son – but who cares about his roots when the album grooves so hard? This Monk plays drums, not piano, but the best tracks on the record have a tight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ruby TurnerWomen Hold Up Half Of The Sky ... LP
Jive, 1985. Near Mint- ... $0.49
Sleek modern soul from Ruby Turner – her tightly grooving Women Hold Up Half The Sky – a mid 80s set that's very much of the era, but with songs that are far more timelessly structured than many pop soul efforts of the era!

Undisputed Truth at the height of their powers – still working in the psychedelic soul style they forged with Norman Whitfield at the end of the 60s – but with a groove that's tighter and sharper than ever before!

United Artists, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Obscure modern soul album on United Artists, with a strong sound that's heading towards an 80s groove, but which also has elements of Luther's work during the late 70s.

A rare early cooker from Phil Upchurch – hardly the "hit dances" set you might guess from the title, and a stripped-down session that features plenty of organ next to Phil's guitar!
