Funky Delicacies, Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A wealth of funky instrumentals – never issued before! Sam & The Soul Machine were a funky New Orleans combo that had a sound that was a heck of a lot like the Meters – dubby bass, tight snapping drums, and some warm and bubbling organ work that gave the music a sweetly soulful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New San Remo Golden StringsHungry For Love ... LP
Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
The name on this one sounds cheesy – but the record's actually a great batch of Detroit soul instrumentals, with way more of a Northern Soul groove than you'd expect!

New Boz ScaggsSilk Degrees ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis.

Arista, 1984. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan!

A 70s soul classic – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit!

Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A great little live album – one that's quite different than Gil Scott-Heron's double-length set for Arista – and a set that serves as a key bridge between his early protest work and his emerging vocal sensibility!

Plenty new here – a wealth of unheard tracks by Gil Scott-Heron – and some of the best music he recorded late in his life!

New Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SOS BandSOS ... LP
Tabu, 1980. Very Good ... $3.99
The seminal first album from the SOS Band – a record that really showcases the new sound of soul for the 80s, yet still holds onto all the best elements of the previous decade too!

SOULWhat Is It ... LP
BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Quite possibly the best album ever from this fantastic funky combo!

New Soul ChildrenOpen Door Policy ... LP
Stax, 1978. Very Good ... $6.99
We don't know if the title is a reference to some sort of contractual obligation that the band had with Stax, but the album was their return to the label after leaving for 2 other albums on Epic. This one features the band as the same trio they were on Epic, with some nice production by David ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul II SoulKeep On Movin' ... LP
Virgin, 1989. Very Good ... $3.99
Essential! When this one came out at the end of the 80's, it not only restored our faith in modern soul music, but it also drew the world's attention to the rich, rich talents that had been bubbling under in London's mid 80's rare groove scene. The record's a classic, and most of the tracks still ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul PatrolDisco Dynamite ... LP
Sunnyvale, 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A disco cover band – but a nice one!

Soul SocietySatisfaction ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!

Cadet, 1968. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Hip hip stuff from Richard Evans and the gang at Cadet Records!

Cadet, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
Seminal instrumental groovers from the Chicago Chi-soul scene!

New Soulful StringsIn Concert ... LP
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
Given that the Soulful Strings were really just a studio side project of the Chi soul arranger Richard Evans, it seems sort of strange to have them cut a live LP, but the session, recorded at Chicago's London House, works quite well, and has a bit more lively feel than some of their classic studio ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent early work from The Staple Singers – one of their first recordings, and an all-gospel album that's drenched in the same sort of soul that you'd hear on their big hits of later years – a key influence on the sound of the secular 60s, heard here in its best original format!
