JuicyJuicy ... LP
Arista, 1982. Very Good+ ... $16.99
An 80s soul classic – and one of those records that never seems to get old! The set's the first album from Juicy – recorded when they were more of a group than a studio duo, and working here with production from Deodato – who gives their sound some nice jazzy touches! That's no ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Juggernaut, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s!

KanoKano ... LP
Emergency, 1980. Very Good ... $9.99
Dark disco from Kano – lots of electronic drums and keyboards, with a sound that's almost equally post-punk as it is early 80s club. Tracks include the monstrous "I'm Ready", "It's A War", "Now Baby Now", "Cosmic Voyager", and "Super Extra Sexy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ty KarimWear Your Natural Baby (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Ty Karim – an LA singer from the 60s, just waiting to be rediscovered!

KarmaFor Everybody ... LP
A&M/Horizon, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
Karma was a group made up of some of the better west coast studio jazz players of the 70s – including Oscar Brashear, Ernie Watts, and George Bohanon – but despite the strength of their individual members, the group never really put things together all that strongly. They're not bad, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New KC & The Sunshine BandDo You Wanna Go Party ... LP
Sunshine Sound, 1979. Sealed ... $4.99
Plenty to party with here – snapping Miami grooves from KC and the band – still very much in a classic 70s mode!

Herman Kelly & LifePercussion Explosion! ... LP
Alston, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The percussion-heavy soul gem from Herman Kelly & Life – recorded in both Brazil & Miami – and awash with killer drum work all the way through!

Tamla, 1972. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!

Chaka KhanChaka ... LP
Warner, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so!

Chaka KhanNaughty ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good ... $2.99
A great album of mellow modern soul tracks recorded in Chaka's post-Rufus years!

New Chaka KhanWhat Cha' Gonna Do For Me ... LP
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Wonderful stuff – and despite what you might think about her work with Rufus, we've always felt that Chaka Khan was equally good, if not better, during the early years of her solo career. This album's a totally solid soul effort, with production by Arif Mardin that's right up there with his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kid Creole & The CoconutsFresh Fruit In Foreign Places ... LP
Island, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The second album from Kid Creole & The Coconuts – a mad mix of grooves with a very unique style!

Kid Creole & The CoconutsIn Praise Of Older Women & Other Crimes ... LP
Sire, 1985. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Later work by the one-and-only Kid Creole & The Coconuts – past his prime, but armed with the silly, and still very enjoyable hit "Endicott" – and other nice moments! The sound is cleaner and more streamlined by this point, namely the mid 80s – but the lively horns, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kid Creole & The CoconutsWise Guy ... LP
Sire/Ze, 1982. Very Good- ... $3.99
Ha! This one really takes us back! The set was a massive breakthrough for August Darnell – one of his biggest hits since his day with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, with an equally appealing approach to the dancefloor. Tracks mix early 80s New York club styles with Darnell's mad ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ben E KingSupernatural ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good ... $2.99
A brilliant 70s comeback for Ben E King – a record that shows the world that his vocals are still some of the best in soul, long after his early hits – and a massively mature effort that also grooves like a mofo!

King CurtisInstant Groove ... LP
Atco, 1969. Very Good- ... $8.99
An instant groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums! The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A sweet early cooker from King Curtis – recorded with a raw sound and a sense of fire that most of his other albums from this time didn't have!

KliqueLet's Wear It Out! ... LP
MCA, 1982. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A sweet sweet groover from Klique – with a sound that more than makes us forgive them for their silly costumes on the cover!

KliqueLove Cycles ... LP
MCA, 1985. Sealed ... $0.99
The group's third release – and although they've dropped the space suits, they're still grooving nicely in a slightly electric mode!

RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Reissue of an amazingly hard to find funk album on RCA!

Little Anthony & The ImperialsOn A New Street ... LP
Avco, 1973. Good ... $2.99
Wonderful work from Little Anthony – and a great update to his smooth 60s harmony sound with The Imperials!

Little Anthony & The ImperialsShades Of The 40's ... LP
End, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $38.99
A hard to find early LP cut for the End imprint, featuring the group running through material from the 40's.

Little BeaverBlack Rhapsody ... LP
Cat, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible funky guitar – an all-instrumental gem from the legendary Little Beaver – quite different than his other vocal albums of the 70s, and a fair bit funkier too!

A funky classic from Little Beaver – one of the best albums to come out of the Miami scene of the mid 70s!

A landmark album of hard-rocking soul – and a record that broke open both genres for a generations to come!

A fantastic album of funky soul – and Shorty's greatest album!

Love Unlimited OrchestraMy Musical Bouquet ... LP
20th Century, 1978. Near Mint- ... $15.99
Late stuff – but one of the best Barry White-related albums from the 70s! The record has the Orchestra moving at a much slower pace than usual – perhaps in an answer to all the too-fast too-orchestrated disco that took a cue from Barry's earlier work – and the record bravely hits ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kent, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of two albums produced by Rudy Ray Moore – the other being The Sensuous Black Man – which define the art of making love from a gender-based perspective.

Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Hard, raw, righeous group funk – one of the hardest-hitting early albums ever produced by Patrick Adams!

RCA, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula.

MajesticsOtis Redding – The Soul King – A Tribute ... LP
ARC, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very hip tribute to Otis Redding – one that has The Majestics hitting hard in an instrumental mode that's almost like some of the Mar-Keys or Bar-Kays work on Stax from the mid 60s – tight drums on the bottom, Hammond and guitar grooving in the middle, and some occasional horns ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
We have to admit we've passed this album up for years and years, as it seems to be rather ubiquitous in these parts, and boy were we mistaken!

Gordy, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stone classic from Teena Marie – one of her magical self-produced efforts for Motown!

Plantation, Late 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music!
