Columbia, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
A late 80s effort for Columbia from the legendary Roy Ayers – his third and final album for the label from the early-to-mid 80s – a time that found Roy applying his classic smooth, jazzy soul style to a more profoundly modern vibe – and it works as well on this set as it did on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Chambers BrothersTime Has Come ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!

ChampaignWoman In Flames ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Sealed ... $2.99

ChimesChimes ... LP
Columbia, 1990. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A strong bit of soul from The Chimes – really the only lasting set they ever recorded, a chunky bit of early 90s soul with that Soul II Soul kind of groove to it.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New D TrainIn Your Eyes ... LP
Columbia, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later effort from James D-Train Williams, but still plenty darn great – and proof that his groove was still one of the strongest in 80s soul music! The style of the set follows from Williams' best earlier work – a bit of bounce at the bottom of most of the tracks, but never too much ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Tyrone DavisIn The Mood ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock

New Earth Wind & FireBest Of Earth Wind & Fire Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, Mid 70s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff through and through – and almost a "best of" best of collection from the 70s!

The genius of Earth Wind & Fire knows no bounds – and even on this double-length set, the group keep up their groove tremendously!

New Earth Wind & FireGratitude ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

EmotionsRejoice ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!

New Aretha FranklinAretha Franklin's Greatest Hits ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Despite the title, this isn't really Aretha's greatest hits – as it includes no numbers from the Atlantic years – but it is a pretty good selection of Aretha's earlier work for Columbia, and features some real gems that should have been bigger hits than they were. Titles include "R ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Isley BrothersGo For Your Guns ... LP
T Neck/Columbia, 1977. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky album – but one that we love best for the mellow tracks!

Columbia, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock

New Boz ScaggsBoz Scaggs & Band ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
Early blue eyed soul work from Boz Scaggs – an album that's got a lot more rootsy touches than some of his bigger crossover hits! At one level, the album seems to have a Bay Area-styled approach – genre-blending soul, R&B, and rock influences into a sound that proudly steps forth ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Boz ScaggsSilk Degrees ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia!

Phoebe SnowNever Letting Go ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
Phoebe Snow's warming things up a bit here – reaching for some slightly fuller production at times, yet never losing the intimacy that's always made her music so great! Snow's a unique 70s enigma – not really soul, not really mellow pop, not even jazz – but somewhere up on top of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Starship OrchestraCelestial Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $24.99

Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP + 12" ... $1.99
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Luther VandrossBusy Body ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Classic 80s work from Luther Vandross – the kind of record that catapulted him from the soul music shadows into the major mainstream of the time!

Columbia, 1986. Used ... Out Of Stock
Luther Vandross at the top of his game – sitting right at the height of that crossover space in soul he virtually owned back in the mid 80s!

New Wah Wah WatsonElementary ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A funky fusion classic from guitarist Wah Wah Watson – his only album as a leader, despite countless appearances as a sideman on 70s soul, jazz, and pop sessions!

New Deniece WilliamsThis Is Niecy ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Genius work from Denice Williams – a singer who'd cracked the charts a bit as Denice Chandler, with a little girl soul sound, way back in the 60s – but who's grown up considerably by this essential 70s set! Chandler's voice is still a bit high – almost in a Minnie Riperton sort ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Bill WithersMenagerie ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Bill Withers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that has hip stepping off the acoustic sound of his Sussex records, into a warm and jazzy style that we like every bit as much as his earlier work!

Bill WithersWatching You Watching Me ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A sweet little 80s session from Bill Withers – a lot less acoustic than his soul of the 70s, but in a way that works surprisingly well! As always with Bill, the vocals are the main thing, and the passage of time has done nothing to take off his edge – that warmly raspy quality that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
