RedboneBeaded Dreams Through Turquoise Eyes ... LP
Epic, 1974. Sealed ... $8.99
Despite the Native American theme of the title, the group, and the cover image, the set is mostly a pretty straight mix of soul and rock, mid 70s crossover material with a flanged-out LA kind of appeal. Titles include "Interstate Highway 101", "Blood Sweat & Tears", "Co ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sharon ReddSharon Redd ... LP
Prelude, 1980. Very Good ... $5.99
A fantastic album of funky club soul tracks from Sharon Redd – with a sound that's a lot rawer and more honest than some of her later work, and nice hard grooving from a tight backup band with stellar lead guitar by Rodney Brown.

A storming batch of pre-Stax singles by Otis Redding – cut in the first couple years of the 60s for Orbit, Confederate, Alshire, Gerald and other labels – and it's really nice stuff, mostly in a gritty early 60s R&B mode! The earliest ones were actually done with an LA combo called ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rene & AngelaStreet Called Desire ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A bit late in the game for Rene & Angela, though they're still pumping out some classic 80s groove numbers, with Angela Winbush's flair for great songs.

A great bit of funky guitar work from Freddie Robinson – a player who clearly started out with a bluesy backing, but managed a real super-dope sound by the time of his 70s work for Stax!

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
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has a sticker.)

New Gil Scott-HeronSecrets ... LP
Arista, 1978. Sealed ... $18.99
A key crossover set from Gil Scott-Heron – still every bit as political as his earlier work, but with a stronger sense of soul as well! The great Brian Jackson is firmly in tow here – bringing warm keyboards and a nice little groove to most of the tracks – and the previous ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Secret WeaponSecret Weapon ... LP
Prelude, 1983. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Not the biggest name in 80s club, but a very groovy group that cut some massive singles for the Prelude label – featured here in their rare full length LP! Secret Weapon have a great way with a groove – tight, but never commercial – bumping along with a bit of jazz in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Senor SoulSenor Soul Plays Funky Favorites ... LP
Double Shot, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Tremendously groovy work from the legendary Senor Soul – a fab little combo from late 60s LA, and one who played in a wonderful blend of soul, funk, and Latin-based modes! The sound here is made up from elements that include vibes, organ, piano, guitar, and drums – plus plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Serious Lee FineNothing Can Stop Us ... LP
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! The vocals are a bit poppy and silly at times, but the overall groove isn't that bad, especially considering other efforts like this of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ShakatakDown On The Streets ... LP
Polydor, 1984. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of the biggest breakout albums for Shakatak – an album that brought them strongly to US audiences with a sweet British blend of jazzy instrumentation and sultry soul! The album really holds up well over the years, and has a lot more legs than some of the other smooth fusion sets of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ShakatakDrivin Hard ... LP
Polydor (UK), 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Smooth jazzy work from Shakatak – working here mostly as an instrumental outfit, but with a few vocal touches as well – all wrapped up in that classic 80s fusion style the group really helped forge at the time! The tracks are short and catchy – almost a distillation of sounds the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! The trio groove nicely over a set of upbeat tracks that were clearly aimed at the clubs, but which also have more than enough straight soul to get them on the charts. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a gold promo stamp, with a bit of seam splitting in the corners.)

New ShalamarFriends ... LP
Solar, 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

South Bay, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A near-lost indie soul effort from Marlena Shaw – recorded for the tiny South Bay label in the years after leaving bigger fame at Columbia, but still working here with producer Johnny Bristol, who makes for a surprisingly professional sound. Marlena's still trying to crack the clubs with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... $84.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ShawDiscover Me ... LP
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. There's a few female vocals floating in and out of the mix, but mostly on the campier numbers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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. The cover image is totally ridiculous, but fortunatley the tracks aren't, with some decent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Valerie SimpsonValerie Simpson ... LP
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.

New SlaveShow Time ... LP
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! Most tracks kick along with that great rolling bass sound that the group practically invented – and which has ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Sly & The Family StoneStand! ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way. The album's filled with anthemic numbers like ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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!

New Smoke (aka Black Smoke)Smoke ... LP
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.
