Duke Of BurlingtonDuke Of Burlington – Pressed Piano ... LP
Joker (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $28.99
Funky funky funky! The Duke Of Burlington were a lost Italian combo from the 70s – but on their best cuts, you'd swear they were an American group like The Meters or The Nite Liters! The band mix up hard heavy piano, funky drum breaks, choppy guitar, and some nice soulful flute solos – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy DupreeGhetto Reality ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.99
Kind of silly – but also pretty darn hip! Nancy Dupree was one of the most righteous music teachers you could ever have – and here, she's working with some young kids from the rough side of Rochester, in an album of simple tunes that have a surprisingly soulful edge to them. Nancy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dynamic SuperiorsDynamic Superiors ... LP
Motown, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
A great lost bit of Motown 70s! Dynamic Superiors were a great harmony group with an east coast sound – quite different from the usual Motown combo in that their vocals were often allowed very free range, with less of the tightness of the usual Motown group soul album. Ashford & Simpson ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and unglued top & bottom seams – with a few spots of clear tape along the top seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Dynamic SuperiorsGive & Take ... LP
Motown, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sweet group soul from The Dynamic Superiors – one of the few late 70s comers who still held onto that great falsetto lead that was big in the earlier part of the decade! The album does a great job of mixing funky numbers with sweeter, mellower cuts – in ways that also kind of bridge ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Ronnie Dyson(If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Can't I Touch You? (first cover version) ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $0.99
Ronnie Dyson's first album, and a pretty enigmatic batch of soul tracks that really crosses a lot of boundaries. Ronnie sang Aquarius in the Hair musical – and he scores big here with the title cut, which was lifted from the rock musical Salvation. The basic production style is uptown soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dimitri, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
Sublime spiritual soul from Dyson's Faces – a mid 70s east coast group headed by singer/songwriter Clifton Dyson, an ensemble that was equally well suited to uptempo groovers and mellow harmony soul!

DRR, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
The second incredible album from Dyson's Faces – one of those underground 70s groups that should have been huge! The set's got a soaring sound that's even more righteous than the group's debut – a quality that glows wonderfully with the quartet's mix of male and female voices – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Earth Wind & FireBest Of Earth Wind & Fire Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, Mid 70s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
Fantastic stuff through and through – and almost a "best of" best of collection from the 70s! The album's a key illustration of the genius of Earth Wind & Fire on Columbia Records – because by the time the set was released in 1978, most of the tracks were already well-know ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ovation, 1976. Very Good ... $19.99
A record recorded after Cleveland's more famous one for the Black Jazz label – but still with a nice funky feel, although the overall sound is a bit more produced.

New Ebonee WebbToo Hot ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Lots of bass, keyboards, and tight guitar – all stepping along in a sweet early 80s boogie mode – very much what you'd expect from the styled hair and thin ties on the cover! The sound is nicely sweet at times – not as poppy or funky as other groups of this nature – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The Temptations' former lead singer's first solo record with a huge 80s groove album, especially considering the mighty title track – the duet with Siedah Garrett and it's sly reggae influenced bassline and crisp popping beat.

8th DayI Gotta Get Home (Can't Let My Baby Get Lonely) ... LP
Invictus, 1973. Very Good- ... $39.99
A bit confused at points, but one of the funkiest albums on Invictus! The 8th Day group was a loosely conceived batch of Detroit soul talents designed to cash in on a concept of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – but fortunately, they also included some wonderful talents that could make some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Electric IndianKeem-O-Sabe ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
A goofy mix of groovy instrumental tracks with a weird "Apache"-esque instrumentation made up of some nicely processed guitars.

Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99
Heavy funk from the great Jimmy Ellis – billed here with a "preacher" in his name, which is a great indication of the spiritual soul going on in the music!

Lorraine EllisonHeart & Soul ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good- ... $11.99

New EmotionsSunbeam ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $0.99
A great little album from The Emotions – largely because it sounds a lot like prime mid 70s Earth Wind & Fire, with female vocals added over the top – ultimately, pulling away with a soulful charm all its own! Maurice White produced the whole set, and it's got a soaring spacey ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

EscortsAll We Need Is Another Chance ... LP
Alithia, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99

An incredible album of harmony soul – easily one of the best you could ever hope to find!

Four TopsCatfish ... LP
ABC, 1976. Very Good ... $1.99
A lot greater than you'd expect – like most of The Four Tops' excellent work on ABC. The classic Motown sound is no longer, but in its place is the same sort of positive 70s soul grooving that Lamont Dozier picked up on the label – a style that makes a perfect platform for the vocals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Four TopsChanging Times ... LP
Motown, 1970. Good ... $6.99
A very hip album from the Four Tops – cut with kind of a political/social edge, and a heavy vibe that was similar to what the Temptations had been using on some of their important albums for Motown at the end of the 60s. In fact, this one's got so much of that righteous Temps vibe that we ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful baroque soul from the Four Tops – and proof that the group could take any material and make it sound great!

2nd pressing of Aretha's first album for Columbia! Aretha sings hard jazz tracks with Ray Bryant and his combo, and although the album doesn't have the deep southern feel of her early Atlantic sessions, it's got a beautiful jazzy tinge that you don't really hear in her other recordings.

CBS, 1987. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Pop soul from Full Force – filled with plenty of influence from mainstream hip hop, but all watered down into a much more partyful groove!

Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene!

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

A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s!

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.
