Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99

New Isaac HayesAnd Once Again (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
And once again, Isaac Hayes wows us with the brilliance of his later work at Polydor – really subtle soul that's a wonderful extension of modes first begun at Stax! The sound is a bit smoother here, but it really fits Ike's maturing vocals wonderfully – and sets him up in these ... read more CD

New Isaac HayesDon't Let Go ... LP
Polydor, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful later work from Isaac Hayes – a gem from his Polydor years that has a good mix of mellow cuts and more upbeat numbers!

New Isaac HayesFor The Sake Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
One of our favorite Isaac Hayes albums from the post-Stax years – a wonderful late 70s set that has the man returning strongly to the mellow roots of his early solo years! Ike sounded great on his disco tracks at the time – but we really love his mature, laidback way of laying down a ... read more CD

Independent MovementSlippin' Away (2-sided promo) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $38.99

New Jackson SistersJackson Sisters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, ... read more CD

New JBsBreakin' Bread ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in ... read more CD

New JBsDamn Right I Am Somebody ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album – quite possibly our favorite record by the JBs, ever! The set starts with a wonderful conversational bit – rapping and musing on the idea of "Damn Right, I Am Somebody" – showing the group in a political and righteous mode for the first time ever. ... read more CD

New JBsDoing It To Death ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ... read more CD

JBsFood For Thought ... CD
People/Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all ... read more CD

JBsHustle With Speed ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years! The tracks are longer than on some of the earlier singles – especially the 8 minute jammer "(It's Not The Express) It's ... read more CD

Polydor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A different groove than usual from The JBs – but still pretty darn nice, and way better than just about all the other funky combos on the market! It's the late 70s, and James Brown's head is a bit addled – he thinks he's the guy who invented disco, and he starts turning his extended ... read more CD

New JJ Band (El Chicles & Chakachas)JJ Band ... CD
Polydor/Sonorama (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99

Polydor, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work! The band is super-tight at this point, grooving along in a hard drum, heavy bass, wah wah guitar frenzy – and even the vocals ... read more CD

MandrillComposite Truth ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Although some of the albums that Mandrill made were a bit weak, and had too much hippy-dippy stuff, this one is one of their best albums, and has a nice hard funky sound that they didn't always match. The album includes the funky break classic track "Fencewalk", plus other groovers like ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint- ... $12.99
One of the best records ever by Mandrill – and a perfect balance between the looser jazzy spirituality of earlier albums, and the tighter (sometimes too tight) style of later ones. The band is incredibly tight on the funk tip – with lots of hard drums and guitars, and other sweet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New MandrillMandrill ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mandrill's first album of funky Latin jazz and soul – a landmark in crossover styles that still sounds remarkably fresh today!

Forget the "honky tonk" in the title – because this girl knows how to groove! Ellen McIlwaine's got to be one of the most unique talents of the past 50 years – a skilled guitarist, and great singer – working in a blend of folk, jazz, and soul that lies somewhere between ... read more CD

Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine!

Polydor, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mega-hit from Peaches & Herb – best known for the crossover classic "Reunited", but equally great for a host of modern soul groovers!

Polydor/Because (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 5, 2014
One of the coolest club projects of the 70s – a set of tracks based around the keyboards of Don Ray, but handled with lots of electronic disco touches from Cerrone! The pair are great arrangers on their own, but together they really make some magic – kind of a leaner take on the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $12.99
Sweet silky harmony soul from the team of Ray, Goodman, and Brown – a group who were earlier known as The Moments, but who recorded later under a new name, probably because that nasty Sylvia Robinson retained the name for Stang Records out of a contractual obligation!
