Johnny AceMemorial Album ... LP
Duke, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $48.99
The only full album from Johnny Ace – a key figure in the Memphis scene of the 50s, and one of the first great casualties of rock and roll! Johnny was one of the first singers to record for the legendary Duke label, and worked in a mode that helped transform the smoother style of the west ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Duke pressing! Not the 50s pressing – lighter than that – but doesn't say ABC anywhere either.)

Barbara AcklinLove Makes A Woman ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good- ... $7.99
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers!

ADC BandLong Stroke ... LP
Cotillion, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
ADC Band take a long stroke on the funky bass – borrowing all the best P-Funk elements from their Detroit counterparts – but also helping the music find a tighter, more focused groove too!

ADC BandTalk That Stuff ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Heavy dancefloor funk from ADC Band – grooving in a bass-heavy mode that almost seems like a mainstream take on P-Funk – but which also has some really great mellow soul elements on the mellower tunes! There's a great ensemble Detroit groove going on overall – and as an added ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Albino GorillaDetroit 1984 ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $18.99
Weird funky rock album by this obscure band on Kama Sutra. The music's pretty funky and instrumental at times, but at other times, there's sort of these bad soulful rock vocals. The best tracks on here are the minute-long interludes between songs. They're all pretty funky, and they have no vocals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A return to Stax by Rance Allen – his first album for the label after a stellar set for Capitol, and a much smoother set than before!

Sonic, 1977. Very Good ... $13.99
An excellent lost bit of funk and comedy from the south side of Chicago!

Great grooves from Aurra – a group with a sound that's rooted in the late 70s funk of Slave, but which is given a whole new life at Salsoul by fearless leader Stephen Washington!

If you need to own one album by Average White Band, this is it!

Average White BandWarmer Communications ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Sealed ... $3.99
In case you don't get the joke, the title's a play on the fact that Atlantic Records had just been acquired by Warner Communications – now fully a major label at the end of the 70s!

Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings!

Booker T & The MGsSoul Limbo ... LP
Stax, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Very hip work from Booker T & The MGs – an album that has them standing out under a pier by the ocean on the cover – clearly a long way from their Memphis roots! The sound here still has a good dose of those roots, though – but it also shows them picking up some hipper ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1977. Very Good- ... $5.99
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brass ConstructionBrass Construction III ... LP
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Another killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove!

Arista, 1978. Very Good- ... $5.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years!

Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99

Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove.

Source, 1979. Very Good ... $6.99
Chuck Brown and his Soul Searchers group are past the arch jazzy funk of their days on Sussex Records – and they're heading more towards that ensemble sound that would drive the DC Go Go scene in the early 80s.

A righteous treasure from the end of the 60s – an album of vocal tracks recorded by the Minister Of Information for the Black Panther Party, set to backings from the legendary Horace Tapscott!

King, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record!
