Arista, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
Sweet modern soul with a sound that would get picked up on years later by the LA G-Funk scene.

Some tracks are a bit too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin!

Truth/Stax, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An excellent album by Rance Allen – one of the most overlooked talents in Stax's early 70s roster, and a real genius for blending his gospel roots with influences of the soul and funk scene of his time.

James BrownBody Heat – Live At Studio 54 ... LP
Phoenix10, 1982. Very Good ... $11.99
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, Early 70s/1984. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Great compilation of funky stuff from James' prime early 70s period!

James BrownFederal Years Part 1 ... LP
Solid Smoke, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An excellent compilation that brings together some of James Brown's earliest work – his late 50s R&B sides for the Federal subsidiary of King, ruffer tuffer sides than most of his 60s recordings. Most of the tracks on here have backing vocals by The Flames – and the set is a really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownGet On The Good Foot ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great double-length album from James – filled with a wide range of cuts that are brought together only by his genius, creating an insane mix of grooves that's totally entertaining throughout!

James BrownGettin' Down To It ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
A great little album by James Brown – and very different than his other work! He cut this one with the groovy Dee Felice Trio – a jazz-based combo that he recorded on their own for King, on another very rare, very excellent record. The band's in similar form here, although not ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownHandful Of Soul ... LP
Smash, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the best of Brother James' instrumental records for Smash, and a record that has him out front, wailing at the organ. While James has never been one of the true virtuosos of the instrument, he plays with a sense of style and adventure that make his best LPs sing with energy. This one's got ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownI Got You (I Feel Good) ... LP
King, 1966. Good+ ... $19.99
Quite possibly THE James Brown album of the mid 60s – a solid set of hard-grooving tracks, based around the monster title hit "I Got You (I Feel Good)"! The tune's one of those numbers that has been used a gajillion times over the years in commercials and promos – but which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownIt's A New Day – Let A Man Come In ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good- ... $19.99
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownMighty Instrumentals ... LP
King, 1966. Very Good ... $49.99
Mighty is right! This tasty batch of non-vocal tracks is darn hard to find, and it shows the pre-JBs James Brown group playing with a raw raw raw soul groove that show how nicely James folded his R&B roots into a 60s soul tradition. Includes lots of obscure ones – like "The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownPlays The Real Thing ... LP
Smash, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
Smoking stuff – and a tasty album of organ instrumentals that has James on the Hammond, and Pee Wee Ellis leading the band behind him. The record's got a lot of cuts that are longer than the usual James Brown instrumentals from the time – which means more solo work, more interesting ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSex Machine ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSho Is Funky Down Here ... LP
King, 1971. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the wilder James Brown instrumental LPs from the late King period. The James Brown Band is fronted by a heavy fuzzy guitar sound, which gives the LP a sort of rock break feel, with nice fuzzy electric tones. All tracks are by James and Dave Matthews, and the record is sort of a second ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownShowtime ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the odder James Brown records from the 60s – as it includes 11 studio tracks with overdubbed audience. James was under contract with King at the same time, and couldn't record new vocal material for Smash – so the record doesn't contain any JB originals, but covers of Louis ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jocelyn BrownOne From The Heart ... LP
Warner, 1987. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A classic groover from Jocelyn Brown! One From The Heart was a big mainstream moment for Jocelyn Brown – the crowning realization of all the great work she'd done in the club underground in the early part of the 80s – presented here with a slightly more crossover vibe, but a sound that' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Peter BrownStargazer ... LP
Drive, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
The second album from disco superstar Peter Brown – and a batch of tracks that's a bit less clubby than before! Brown's emerging here more as a fully-fledged pop singer in his own right – showing at least a bit of confidence by putting himself on the front cover this time around, even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Randy BrownMidnight Desire ... LP
Chocolate City, 1980. Sealed ... $13.99
A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – Legendary Recordings Vol 2 ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this set! The set does good job of digging through Roy's work from the late 40s and early 50s, pulling together 15 tracks that mix ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley BrownFor The Real Feeling ... LP
Stax, 1979. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A very, very nice album by Shirley that often gets overlooked next to her Woman To Woman album from the early 70s. This one's a sweet modern soul release, although it's still got Stax production by David Porter, and vocals by Shirley in her deep rich style. The groove is very nice, and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great non-Stax album from Memphis soul singer Shirley Brown – recorded for Arista, but with all the depth and feeling of her indie work!

The first great solo album from Five Stairstep Keni Burke – really recreating himself as a completely different sort of artist – one who's all grown up, and able to work in this jazzy approach to modern soul that's completely great all the way through!

Atco/Karen, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
An obvious follow-up to their big hit "Cool Jerk", but a great album of raw soulful tracks that puts this Detroit group right up there with the best of the 60s up-tempo harmony groups! Apart from the nice original title cut, the record's also got a number of other great tracks like " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single.

Goofy record featuring the saxophone skills of Jimmy Castor. Mr. C blows away on a number of covers of 70's soul hits like "Love Train", "Love's Theme" and "All In Love is Fair", plus a few pop hits like "Walk on the Wild Side". Also with two originals, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy Castor BunchPhase Two ... LP
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record. The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
