Curtom, 1977. Near Mint- .... $9.99
One of the last great 70s soundtracks on Curtom Records – a smoking little set that pairs the music of Curtis Mayfield with the vocals of Mavis Staples!

StarpointAll Night Long ... LP
Chocolate City, 1982. Near Mint- .... $14.99
Starpoint's getting a bit loose and free with their fashions on the cover of this one – but the grooves themselves are tighter than ever!

Stone City BandBoys Are Back ... LP
Gordy, 1981. Very Good .... $3.99
A well-rounded set from Rick James' Stone City Band – a set that's got some mellower moments than most of Rick's own work from the time – but in a nice way that really offsets the group's tendency towards bassier funk!

Prelude, 1980. Very Good .... $5.99

New StrokeStroke ... LP
Omni, 1985. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
The bass gets plenty of stroke on this mid 80s set – a record that hangs somewhere between 80s groove and Prince-era funk – but with a bit of quiet storm feel at times too!

Surprisingly nice album of modern soul grooves cut by the man who's best known for the classic Motown track "Money".

Nolan StruckI Got Bills To Pay ... LP
Retta's Records, 1985. Near Mint- .... $9.99
A bluesy update on the older style of Nolan Struck – a singer with more of a pedigree in soul, but who'd made a move to a more down-home style by the time of this set. Production is a bit modern, but still pretty strong – and there's a nice focus on Nolan's vocals, which have a well-cra ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Avco, 1972. Very Good- .... $2.99
Landmark harmony soul from The Stylistics – a set that's every bit as wonderful as their debut, with the kind of sweet, soulful sound that got played over and over and over and over again back in the day!

StylisticsSun & Soul ... LP
H&L, 1977. Near Mint- .... $4.99
A lesser effort from The Stylistics – recorded here in a mix of ballads, club tracks, and a few "tropical" sounding tunes that seem to warrant the "Sun & Soul" in the title! Hugo & Luigi are still producing the group – but they seem a bit confused as to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Bill Summers & Summer's HeatLondon Style ... LP
MCA, 1983. Very Good .... $0.99
Bill Summers' London Style here is one that's definitely influenced by the changes on the dancefloor coming from the UK in the early 80s – and the groove is a slightly more electrified take on the rhythms that Bill was laying down on previous albums for MCA! Overall, though, the sound's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SunLet There Be Sun ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Very Good .... $13.99
One of the last albums in a great run of records cut by Sun for Capitol – none of which ever had great success at the time, but all of which became a key force in defining the sound of 80s groove!
