Four TopsMeeting Of The Minds ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
A pretty great little album from the Four Tops – the kind of excellent sleeper that shows how strong the group stayed year after year! At some level, the album's got a similar relation to the group's Motown career as do Lamont Dozier's albums at ABC – and the arrangements by Gil Askey, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Inez & Charlie FoxxCome By Here ... LP
Dynamo, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Although they're best known for their hit "Mockingbird" (not on this album), Inez and Charlie were always pretty darn great, and had a raw male/female style in the vein of Ike & Tina or Mickey & Sylvia.

ZTT/Island, 1984. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood!

Atlantic, 1974. Very Good ... $0.49
Aretha Franklin and electric piano – a really great combination that makes for a whole new level of soulfulness in the 70s!

Beautiful baroque soul from LA – and the kind of record you might pass up, but don't!

Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc!

An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid!

Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever!

New FunkadelicTales Of Kidd Funkadelic ... LP
Westbound, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
An oft-overlooked gem by Funkadelic – the group's last album for Westbound, and a record that really has them growing into a great new groove!

Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good+ ... $6.99

Passport, 1983. Sealed ... $4.99
After the sublime smooth funk of the group's Gap Band IV album, they kind of let you down with this one – even though the album cover's image of breakdancers implies that it might be a more street-oriented or electro kind of effort.

Leon HaywoodKeep It In The Family ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Leon's moving from the rawer soul of his earlier days, but he still hasn't hit the sly LA funk sound of his "Freaky To You" years. The record's a good batch of tracks that show the LA sound of the 60s turning into the smooth slinky one of the 70s – and Gene Page is at hand to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Leon HaywoodSoul Cargo ... LP
Fat Fish, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Excellent early work by Leon Haywood – recorded way back in the mid 60s, when he was knocking around the LA indie scene with a very soulful groove!

Walter HeathYou Know You're Wrong Don't Ya Brother ... LP
Buddah, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Obscure mellow midtempo soul LP on Buddah from 1973. The record's got an easy mellow feel that's quite nice and a bit folksy – and Heath has a progressive righteous approach that reminds us a bit of Terry Callier. The songwriting's a bit varied, but the nicest moments have that kind of hip ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

HesitationsNew Born Free ... LP
Kapp, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A landmark record from one of the greatest underground vocal groups of the 60s!

Buddah, 1973. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A cover record – but a great one!

Dunhill, 1969. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A pretty darn amazing album from Thelma Houston – recorded during the zenith of Jimmy Webb's career, when Jimmy was not only one of the hippest songwriters in pop, but also kind of a mini-Burt Bacharach, writing, arranging, and conducting albums for a variety of stars.

Motown, 1973. Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
Willie Hutch's classic score about pimpin' & mackin'!
