Fabulous CountsJan Jan ... LP
Cotillion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stunner of a funk album – a must-have for any fan of all things funky! This is the one-and-only record cut by the Fabulous Counts, a version of the Counts before they recorded for Westbound – and nearly every cut is a funky 45-type gem! The group's got a hard and heavy sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback BandFeel My Soul ... LP
Perception, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99

Fatback BandKeep On Steppin' ... LP
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Four MintsGently Down Your Stream ... LP
Capsoul/Asterisk, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
An incredible album of harmony soul – easily one of the best you could ever hope to find!

Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc!

FunkadelicCosmic Slop (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid!

One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene!

Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicStanding On The Verge Of Getting It On (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

80s groove from the Ingram Family – a record that features the core vocals of Ron Aikens and Galaxy, plus plenty of great backing funk from the Ingrams!

An essential bit of funkiness from this obscure New Orleans funk combo!

Al Green's first LP – with a very different feel than his later work on Hi.

An obscure west coast soul set from Quinn Harris – a well-titled "mastermind" with a great ear for a gritty groove!
