Muscle Shoals Sound, 1985. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Modern Muscle Shoals work from The Rose Brothers – the group's first album, and a surprisingly catchy album of tunes that has most brothers doing a bit of singing, and a rap from one of the others!

Whitfield, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99

Motown's two slickest and most successful groups match up perfectly in this surprisingly nice album from 1968!

Chess, 1964. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the greatest female soul moments on Chess Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given that the label also recorded Etta James!

An excellent sleeper of a modern soul set on the RFC imprint, who were responsible for so much of the great 80s material that crossed over from the dancefloor to the mainstream soul arena!

Heavenly mystical soul from Rotary Connection!

Warner, 1980. Very Good ... $5.99
David Ruffin at Warner Brothers – a very good thing, thanks to some sublime production from Detroit soul legend Don Davis!

RufusNumbers ... LP
ABC, 1979. Sealed Gatefold ... $2.99
Rufus without Chaka Khan – but a surprisingly nice set, nonetheless! The album features various members of the group on lead vocals – singing in a warm, compressed style that's got the same sort of AOR sound as the group's jazzy grooves at the time.

RufusParty Til You're Broke ... LP
MCA, 1981. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Great later work from Rufus – working here without Chaka Khan on vocals, but sounding even jazzier as a result!

Rufus featuring Chaka KhanAsk Rufus ... LP
ABC, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $8.99
A stone cold classic, and probably the best record Rufus or Chaka ever did!

Patrice RushenWatch Out! ... LP
Arista, 1987. Near Mint- ... $0.49
Patrice Rushen in a crisp 80s soul mode! Watch Out finds Patrice really cutting down the keyboards in favor of stronger vocals right out front – breaking all the rules, as the title of second song tells it – and it works really well!

Portrait, 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Think what you want – we think this is a damn great soul album!

Stax, 1966. Very Good- ... $14.99
Classic Sam & Dave work for Stax – a searing batch of hard soul tracks that forever redefined the concept of a male soul duet!

San Remo Golden StringsHungry For Love ... LP
Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99

New Gil Scott-HeronBest Of Gil Scott-Heron ... LP
Arista, 1984. Sealed ... $9.99
A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan!

Gil Scott-HeronFirst Minute Of A New Day ... LP
Arista, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $13.99
Gil Scott Heron's first album for Arista – very much in the mellow soul jazz work of his legendary album on Strata East!

Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1978. Sealed ... $18.99

Arista/Rush, 1989. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Equal parts soul and hip hop – and a record that might be more New Jack than anything else, if it wasn't for production by Davy D and Jam Master Jay!

New ShadowLove Lite ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Uptempo modern soul from this short-lived combo who cut a few records for Elektra at the end of the 70s. The cuts have a nice jazzy undertone, with a style that's approaching an 80's kind of sound.

ShalamarDisco Gardens ... LP
Solar, 1978. Very Good ... $1.99
Snapping soulful grooves from Shalamar – one of the group's big early albums, and an important part of the Solar sound of LA!

Phase 4/London, 1976. Near Mint- ... $2.99
An obscure bit of disco from the UK – possibly put together by Brit Easy man Roland Shaw – mostly pretty sleepy, but with a few nice numbers that have kind of a smooth and easy feel to them.

Heavy dancefloor grooves from Stax, featuring this one-time heavier funk group, now hitting a sound that's aimed a bit more at the clubs.

Skyy grooving along in that bass-heavy early 80s mode – picking up a bit of pop soul along the way, with an approach that should have broken bigger on the charts, given the catchy vocals of most of the tracks.

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!

Far and away the band's best record!

We couldn't think of a better way to describe the sound of Slave than "stone jam"!

CBS, 1976. Very Good ... $6.99
Well, we didn't miss him that much, but this comeback LP does have a few nice moments. Sly takes his 60's San Francisco rock soul sound, and gives it a bit more of a 70's groove, but still retains the choppy funk groove. Titles include "Sexy Situation", "What Was I Thinkin In My ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A novelty hit, but a real crossover moment in the growth of Jamaican music!

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

Chocolate City, 1976. Sealed ... $8.99
This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, but with the same cover.

New Smoke CityI Really Want You ... LP
Epic, 1985. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A damn great bit of 80s soul – the only album ever issued by Smoke City, but a killer set that we've loved for many years – especially given the group's link to the Chicago scene! The set's perfectly put together – head and shoulders above so much other major label soul of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1969. Sealed ... $24.99
The second album from The Sons Of Champlin – a record that actually has the group shortening their name to The Sons, but expanding their sound past the jamming bluesy roots of their debut!

Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Essential!
