New MazeGolden Time Of Day ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze! The record is one of the group's best, and has a wonderful mellow groove that's totally on the money on nearly every cut – a mature, sophisticated approach to soul that really made Maze a standout act at the end of the 70s! There's a slight jazzy vibe running through most of the record, supported with warmly flowing grooves, impeccable songwriting, and great vocals from Frankie all the way through. Titles include the excellent track "Golden Time Of Day", one of those slinky modern soul midtempo numbers that were one of the best things about the late 70s soul years – plus the tunes "I Need You", "I Wish You Well", and "Travelin Man". LP, Vinyl record album

New MazeLive In Los Angeles ... LP
Capitol, 1986. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you've ever wondered why Maze cut so many live albums in their career, listen to this one and wonder no further. This great live set recorded in LA is filled with the kind of tight, yet mellow soul grooves that made the group huge in the late 70's and early 80's. The live performances add new life to older favorites, and they open up the songs a bit more than other live albums by contemporary soul performers. With (of course) "Joy And Pain", plus "Running Away", "Happy Feelings", "We Are One", and "I Wanna Be With You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves. Cover has some light wear.)

New MazeInspiration ... LP
Capitol, 1979. Used .... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Frankie Beverly and Maze – smooth, mellow, and perfectly put together, with a level of care and class that you'd be hard pressed to find in many of the group's contemporaries! The album's not one of the group's most famous, but that makes it even more of a treat, as you'll find some nice lesser-known cuts on here that really sparkle. Features the cut "Lovely Inspiration", in vocal and instrumental versions, plus "Woman Is A Wonder", "Ain't It Strange", and "Call On Me". LP, Vinyl record album

New MazeWe Are One ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Used .... Out Of Stock
Frankie Beverly and crew can't miss at this point – and as usual, this album by Maze stands head and shoulders above most of its soul contemporaries from the time. The overall feel is nice and warm, with plenty of focus on Frankie's sweet smooth vocals – and the band grooves behind him in a slightly jazzy style that must have sounded like an instant classic at the time! Titles include "I Wanna Thank You", "Love Is The Key", "We Are One", "Right On Time", "Never Let You Down", and "Metropolis". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

New TempreesLove Maze ... LP
We Produce, 1973. Used .... Out Of Stock
Heavenly heavenly vocal group soul! Although recorded in Memphis for the Stax subsidiary of We Produce, the sound of the record is much more in keeping with some of the best of the New Jersey group soul records from the time – fragile at times, with a sweetness that's quite different than the bolder sound of early 70s Stax! The vocals are very raw, but woven together perfectly – into a soaring sound that will reach up and rip your still-beating heart right out of your chest! Tracks include "Love's Maze", "Wrap Me In Love", "Trust In Me", "At Last", "You Make The Sunshine", and their great cover of "People Make The World Go Round", which is stone cold one of the best Stax tracks from the early 70s!

Con Funk ShunCon Funk Shun/Secrets (plus bonus track) ... CD
Mercury/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy .... $13.99
A super-funky set – two vintage albums from Con Funk Shun – back to back on a single CD! The self-titled Con Funk Shun album is quite different than their later, better known hits! The group sure knew how to slap that bass, even back on this first album for Mercury – but then again, they – along with other big Mercury groups like The Ohio Players – were pioneering the bass-heavy sound that would influence countless bands over the next decade in soul. This first album's actually one of the group's best, with some nice rough edges that we like even more than the smoother sound of later albums. And oddly, some of our favorite cuts are the mellower ones – like the smooth jazzy instrumental "Foley Park", which has a nice moogy solo in the middle. Other good mellow cuts include "Another World", which almost has a "Summer Madness" quality to it, plus "Forever Just Ain't Long Enough" and "Never Be The Same". Secrets is a great early album from Con Funk Shun – a mix of funkier tunes and some excellent smooth modern ones in step with the mellower work by Cameo or Maze – done with more soaringly emotional sounds that moves beyond their peers! A love for earlier 70s styles might be what pushes Secrets above and beyond – honest, intimate, and at times just more focused in the vocals department than both the funky soul groups of the time and the quiet storm singers of the approaching early 80s – and still doesn't spare the bass, horns and funky interplay! High points include the closing instrumental "Indian Summer Love" and funky centerpiece "Ffun" –plus "Doowhachawannadoo", "Who Has The Time", "Secrets", "Tear In My Eye" and "I'll Set You Out OK". CD also features a bonus track – "Ffun (12" version)" – a clubby killer! CD

New SwitchReaching For Tomorrow ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1980. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Switch – one of Motown's leading hopes in the early 80s soul scene, and for good reason too! These guys have a wonderfully well-rounded approach – great on ballads and even more compelling on groovers – a balance here that puts them proudly in the company of contemporaries like Maze or Slave, with a sound that's sometimes right in the middle of both. We love the mellow cuts especially, as they really give the group a chance to show off their vocal chops – and singers include both Bobby and Tommy DeBarge. Titles include "Keep Movin On", "Get Back With You", "Don't Take My Love Away", "I Finally Found Someone New", and "My Friend In the Sky". CD

New Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World ... LP
CBS, 1975. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and Afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth, Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid-70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
