Sweat BandSweat Band ... LP
Uncle Jam/CBS, 1980. Very Good ... $6.99
A tasty bit of late P-Funk! The album was recorded in 1980, on the wane of the main P-Funk groups – and it features Bootsy and Fred Wesley teaming up on the arrangements, in a set of bass-heavy, mostly instrumental tracks that groove hard like the best early work by Zapp! There's a great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet InspirationsSweets For My Sweet ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Wonderful soul by one of the best female groups of the 60s! The Sweet Inspirations work here in a southern-tinged style similar to their classic backing work for Aretha Franklin – a sound that was already great behind Aretha, but which is even better here on its own – warm, spiritual, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Swing Out SisterIt's Better To Travel ... LP
Mercury, 1987. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A surprisingly great guilty pleasure from the 80s – the first album from Swing Out Sister, recorded when all the excitement of the UK post punk scene had just about faded, and most of the groups had left their exciting early roots behind. Enter these guys, picking up the last shreds of jazzy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SylversSylvers ... LP
Pride, 1972. Very Good+ ... $44.99
The first album by The Sylvers – a hard soulful band made up of youngsters from LA, but who had a lot more going on than some of the other kiddie-soul bands of the early 70s! The group's a sextet at this point, with four male voices and two female ones – coming across as a sweet blend ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SylvesterStep II ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Probably Sylvester's biggest album for Fantasy – and for good reason too! The set pushes onto the dancefloor a bit more than before – often with some slight keyboard touches that hint at the Patrick Cowley years, but with none of the coldness of those records at all. The great Harvey ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SylvesterSylvester's Greatest Hits ... LP
Fantasy, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
What can we say? All the best-remembered club tracks by one of the world's most unique soul artists. We're much more partial to these soulful club cuts than his later hi-energy singles, though each side is mixed into a medley, with the first side featuring "Do You Wanna Funk", "Dan ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SyreetaStevie Wonder Presents Syreeta ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good ... $7.99
Syreeta's second album for Motown – and a set that really expands the groove from the first! (Then) husband Stevie Wonder is all over the album – and in a way, the shift between this album and the first is similar to the shift between Stevie's Music Of My Mind and later efforts like ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New TavaresBest Of Tavares ... LP
Capitol, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
One of Capitol's biggest soul bands of the 70s – and a strong sweet group who made the shift from mellow soul to the disco years. The set kicks off with the band's massive "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel", but we prefer their mellower stuff – like their sublime version of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New TavaresLove Storm ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $0.99
A definite love storm from Tavares – a set that has the group's vocal approach honed to perfection – really soaring high with some sweet clubby arrangements from Freddie Perren! The album came at a time when the group was riding high on mainstream disco fame – but it's hardly a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnnie TaylorShe's Killing Me ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good- ... $2.99
An obscure 7 track EP from Johnnie Taylor – almost a 12" single, but with more than enough going on to make us think of it as a full album! Johnnie's in prime Columbia Records form here – and the tunes are a mix of the "Disco Lady" style of his earlier hit for the label, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little Johnny TaylorLittle Johnny Taylor ... LP
Galaxy, 1963. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent album of bluesy soul by Little Johnny Taylor – not to be confused with Johnnie Taylor, who later sang for Stax! This Johnny's got a style that's a bit bluesier, set up here in some nice larger arrangements that make the album feel like some of Bobby Blue Bland's best work for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Ace label reissue – long out of print!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Teen QueensEddie My Love ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $29.99
The Teen Queens were a hip R&B duo who deserve a lot more credit than their silly name might make you think. They had a style that was part raw R&B, and part 60s girl group, years before the girl group format was around long enough to become a cliche! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl is nice overall, but has some bumps in the pressing – which creates the occasional low end tic when playing. Cover has a split bottom seam, a partially split spine, and some stains on the back.)

New Temptations1990 ... LP
Gordy, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the last totally righteous albums by the Temptations – recorded at the end of their progressive run at Motown, and done with some really hard-hitting tunes and production from Norman Whitfield! Tracks step off with that beautiful mix of badass soul, heavy production, and soaring ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, Mid 60s/Early 70s. Very Good 3LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Another one of those overstuffed Motown 70s Anthologies – this time featuring 3LPs worth of Temptations classics, with tracks recorded between 1964 and 1972. The album follows the group right up to their move to ABC, and includes classics like "Cloud Nine", "Just My ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsBare Back ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The Temptations on Atlantic Records – sounding different than their Motown years, and still pretty darn great!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
TemptationsCloud Nine ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield!

Gordy, 1971. Near Mint- ... $7.99

Gordy, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99

Dial/Atlantic, 1969. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Joe Tex is always great – but this is one of our favorite albums by him!

The second album by the Tom Tom Club – showing this Talking Heads spinoff project as way more than a fluke!

Warner, 1973. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the harder funk albums by Tower Of Power – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease!

JAMTU, 1981. Very Good- 2LP ... $6.99
This may pass for straight up funk in DC, but to us it's a mad percolating Go Go jam, and that's nothing to complain about. T Funk lets loose with batteries of drum rolls, clattering Go Go percussion, heavy bass and space age synthesizer.

Livin' the "Bon Bon Vie", with this classic uptempo groover from T.S. Monk! You'd hardly guess that this guy was Thelonious Monk's son – but who cares about his roots when the album grooves so hard?

Ike and Tina Turner take on a host of gospel classics – but really rework them with their own sort of early 70s energy!

Some of the greatest harmonies on the Philly scene of the early 60s – sung by a group who really helped soul music find a new sort of sophistication at the time!

A great little album by the Undisputed Truth – with more than a few numbers that have a "space" theme to them, and cool keyboards by Mark Davis to back up the sound. More than a few funky moments in the mix – and tracks include "1990", "Sqeeze Me Tease Me" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
A perfect example groove that got The Undisputed Truth big hit fame in the early 70s – sort of a rumbling funk, full-on approach, using male/female vocals in kind of a "wall of soul" approach.

Obscure modern soul album on United Artists, with a strong sound that's heading towards an 80s groove, but which also has elements of Luther's work during the late 70s.

A rare early cooker from Phil Upchurch – hardly the "hit dances" set you might guess from the title, and a stripped-down session that features plenty of organ next to Phil's guitar!

One of Phil Upchurch's best records – and one that's a no-nonsense batch of funky instrumentals that feature some really great guitar!

Warner, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
The only record from this group that would sort of morph into Apollonia 6, pretty much just one of many Prince vehicles during the 80s.

A mid 70s Bay Area soul treasure by The Variations – with lone female vocalist Samaki given a more prominent presence – and it's the funkiest album the group ever cut!

Although we don't know much about Charles Veal, this LP's a nice batch of modern soul tracks with the same sort of jazzy tinge that a lot of the Capitol soul LPs had at the time (and like you'd find on the Capitol Rare compilation).

New Narada Michael WaldenDance Of Life ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of Narada Michael Walden's tighter records of the 70s – a tight batch of soul tracks that steps off of his spiritual roots into a sound that points the way towards 80s groove!

Brunswick, 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A landmark album of electric piano grooves from Hysear Don Walker – the keyboardist on some of Young-Holt Unlimited's best albums!

Arista, 1982. Very Good+ ... $0.99
An Arista groover from Dionne Warwick! Here she's working in warm, mature territory – a sound that's a bit more like the vibe she explored on her late 70s records – a maturing past the original Bacharach years, with an all-adult style that really works with her voice.

Sublime mid 70s work from Johnny Guitar Watson – a Bay Area blend of soulful production, jazzy playing, and bits of bluesy phrasing, with a hard-to-match quality that we'd put in the same camp as work by Shuggie Otis from the time.
