Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... LP
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! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TavaresLove Storm ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Sealed Gatefold ... $3.99
A definite love storm from Tavares – a set that has the group's vocal approach honed to perfection – really soaring high with some sweet clubby arrangements from Freddie Perren! The album came at a time when the group was riding high on mainstream disco fame – but it's hardly a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnnie TaylorNew Day ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Massive, massive music from the great Johnnie Taylor – a set that's way beyond his early work on Stax, and even his disco hits of the 70s – but in a way that's even better than before! The album makes use of two great producers – Brad Shapiro for side one, and Don Davis for side ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little Johnny TaylorLittle Johnny Taylor ... LP
Galaxy, 1963. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent album of bluesy soul by Little Johnny Taylor – not to be confused with Johnnie Taylor, who later sang for Stax! This Johnny's got a style that's a bit bluesier, set up here in some nice larger arrangements that make the album feel like some of Bobby Blue Bland's best work for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Ace label reissue – long out of print!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willie TeeAnticipation ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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. Don't go thinking that it's raw New Orleans soul, though, because the sound is a lot more polished, with more of a 70's modern groove to it. Willie's still got some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
(Black label pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl is nice overall, but has some bumps in the pressing – which creates the occasional low end tic when playing. Cover has a split bottom seam, a partially split spine, and some stains on the back.)

Temptations1990 ... LP
Gordy, 1973. Very Good- ... $2.99
One of the last totally righteous albums by the Temptations – recorded at the end of their progressive run at Motown, and done with some really hard-hitting tunes and production from Norman Whitfield! Tracks step off with that beautiful mix of badass soul, heavy production, and soaring ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New TemptationsAll Directions ... LP
Gordy, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
The Temptations going in all directions – and all of them pretty darn groovy too!

TemptationsAnthology ... LP
Motown, Mid 60s/Early 70s. Very Good 3LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Another one of those overstuffed Motown 70s Anthologies – this time featuring 3LPs worth of Temptations classics, with tracks recorded between 1964 and 1972.

TemptationsBare Back ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The Temptations on Atlantic Records – sounding different than their Motown years, and still pretty darn great!

TemptationsCloud Nine ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New TemptationsMasterpiece ... LP
Gordy, 1973. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the later Norman Whitfield efforts for The Temptations – a masterpiece of baroque harmony soul, touched with bits of the righteous sound that Whitfield brought to the group a few years before. The album's very coherent, with some wonderful tracks that really build the groove nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsPuzzle People ... LP
Gordy, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic set of psychedelic soul from this fantastic 60s group!

Joe TexBumps & Bruises ... LP
Epic, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe TexHappy Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $8.99
Joe Tex is always great – but this Late 60s album is one of our favorites by him!

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.

New Jr Walker & The All StarsGotta Hold On To This Feeling ... LP
SOUL, 1970. Very Good ... $7.99
An excellent album by Jr Walker and group – one that has them moving past the honking sax combo format of other albums, into a more expanded Motown-esque soul approach that mixes vocals and tenor into a swirling blend of grooves!

SOUL, 1965. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the all-time classics from Jr Walker & The All Stars – key proof that Motown could groove even when nobody was laying down vocals!

MCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A nice later effort from War – one that really has them grooving in a great way! If you never got past the first two tracks on side one – "Galaxy" and "Baby Face" – you might imagine this album's just a middle of the road attempt to move in on the disco sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

WarMusic Band 2 ... LP
MCA, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great follow-up to War's first Music Band album – and proof that the group was still plenty darn funky at the end of the 70s! Although different from their original Chicano funk groove, the style here is still totally great – long, drawn-out funk that's filled with plenty of sharp ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A repackaging of tracks put together in the late 70s, collecting some of War's "jazzier" moments.

United Artists, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
War's first LP without Eric Burdon – and although not the mega-hit that following LPs would be, still a pretty great blend of styles that firmly shows the group's unique vision.

Elektra, 1982. Very Good ... $19.99
Seminal modern soul from the great Leon Ware – an artist who had a great influence on the sound of mellow Motown in the 70s, but who's sounding even better here in an early 80s California groove!

Wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's lesser-known sister – a hell of a great singer, and one who packs even more punch than her famous sibling!

Can 60s pop get any better than this? It's hard to think so – given the near-perfect sound of this album, and its unique blend of soul, vocal, and mainstream modes!

New Dionne WarwickHow Many Times Can We Say Goodbye ... LP
Arista, 1983. Sealed ... $0.99
Dionne Warwick steps out strongly with some great production help from Luther Vandross – who gives the lady a groove that's possibly even tighter than on her other Arista albums, really shaking off some of her more familiar modes, and going for a powerful 80s sound.

Sublime mid 70s work from Johnny Guitar Watson – a Bay Area blend of soulful production, jazzy playing, and bits of bluesy phrasing, with a hard-to-match quality that we'd put in the same camp as work by Shuggie Otis from the time.

A funky fusion classic from guitarist Wah Wah Watson – his only album as a leader, despite countless appearances as a sideman on 70s soul, jazz, and pop sessions!

It would be easy to write off some of Barry's later work, if only because his 70s output was so stellar – and ubiquitous.
