ShirellesShirelles Greatest Hits Vol 2 ... LP
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A nice collection of tracks from this classic girl group, and one that has a lot of lesser-known material that's pretty darn nice! Includes their very groovy "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World" – plus the tracks "Boys", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Don't Go Home (My ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ShirellesSpontaneous Combustion ... LP
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Killer live set with a sound that's waaaaay rawer than any of their studio albums of the time.

Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years!

Joe SimonHappy Birthday Baby ... LP
Spring, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
By this point in his career, Joe's a long way from the country soul of "The Chokin' Kind" – and is working here on more strident club-oriented tracks designed to keep him fresh for the 70s.

Tamla, 1972. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Although Valerie Simpson's on her own as the singer here, Nick Ashford was in the studio for most of the set, helping Valerie produce and write most of the cuts on the album.

Simtec & WylieGettin' Over The Hump ... LP

The one and only LP released by this funky soul duo from Chicago!

Cotillion, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Wonderful work from Slave – an album that's still got the hard funk of earlier years, yet which also has the group sweetening up their sound in a great sort of 80s groove way!

SlaveVisions Of The Lite ... LP
Cotillion, 1982. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Non-stop grooving from Slave – a record that has them losing the lead talents of Steve Arrington, but not missing a beat! As with Showtime, the sound here is a nicely smoothed-out approach to the bassy funk the group helped forge at the end of the 70s – a more soul-based sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia!

Essential!

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!)

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
(Cover has a light stain along the bottom, a few creases, and some pen on back.)

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! This time out the smooth sound is vibrantly top notch – all produced by Steve ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and a few creases.)

Style CouncilMy Ever Changing Moods ... LP
Geffen, 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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
(Includes the original lyric sleeve.)

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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some light wear.)

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
(NOTE: cover has staining & peeling along the top seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
(Cover has some wear, some stains, an unglued bottom seam, a center split on the spine, and a bit of pen.)

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 StylisticsYou Are Beautiful ... LP
Avco, 1975. Very Good ... $0.99
A mid 70s album from the Stylistics which is not a great one but is has some moments. Some of the song titles are just plain goofy – "Funky Weekend", "The Day The Clown Came To Town" and "To Save My Rock 'N' Roll Soul" but there are a couple of nice slower tempo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Donna SummerOn The Radio – Greatest Hits Vol 1 & 2 ... LP
Casablanca, Late 70s. Very Good- 2LP ... $0.49
Ahh, the dancefloor soul perfection of the beautiful Donna Summer – and classic late 70s production by Giorgio Morodor and Pete Bellotte – songs that are played often, even to this day, but will never be played out! Was this the one that coined the phrase "shipped gold, returned ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP + 12" ... $1.99
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves. Cover has a cut corner & some light wear.)

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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole.)

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
(White label promo. Cover has some wear, a large tracklist sticker on the front, an ink stamp, a couple of light stains, and small splits on the bottom seam and spine.)

New SupremesLove Child ... LP
Motown, 1968. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Really one of the nicer late 60s efforts by the Supremes – now with Cindy Birdsong in the group in place of the departed Florence Ballard – with the now well known title track, and a number of other great pop soul numbers, with the classic Motown sound! The Supremes could arguably ... 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

Swamp DoggCuffed, Collared & Tagged (with download) ... LP
Cream/Fat Possum, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 15.99
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
(Includes MP3 download.)

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 Charles, Charles Sherell, was a great lost soul vocalist who had a voice that was warm and mellow, with a sweetness that was often missing from James' singing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

New Sweet SalvationSweet Salvation ... LP
Elektra, 1972. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet salvation from Sweet Salvation – a righteous little soul group with a hip early 70s crossover vibe! There's a mix of gospel, soul, and funk going down here – almost with a rootsy Swamp Dogg style at times, but a bit more put together too – yet thankfully not nearly as slick ... 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. Enter these guys, picking up the last shreds of jazzy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

One of our favorite soul records of the 70s – and one of the most unique albums ever cut by Motown, too! The lovely Syreeta steps out here with key studio help from then-partner Stevie Wonder – who makes things even more righteous and more cosmic than on any of his own 70s material ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Taste Of HoneyAnother Taste ... LP
Capitol, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
A great album of grooves from Taste Of Honey – arguably their best record, thanks to some super production by The Mizell Brothers! The elements that worked so well on the self-titled smash from the previous year are in just as fine a form here – if not better. There's an overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New 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

Capitol, 1977. Sealed Gatefold ... $3.99

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
