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

Isaac HayesDon't Let Go (long, short) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1979. Very Good ... $0.99
Ike's big attempt to cash in on the dancefloor scene, and a pretty nice disco track with rhythm arrangements by Isaac Hayes. The long version is nearly 13 minutes long, and it's got a nice little spoken bit! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo in a Polydor sleeve. Label has small initials in pen.)

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

New Independent MovementSlippin' Away (2-sided promo) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1978. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A killer cut from Independent Movement – a wonderful Chicago group with a really deep sound! The track's almost equal parts club and soul, and really hangs together great with production from Tom Washington! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo in a printed sleeve. Cover has some wear and stickers on front.)

New Millie Jackson & Isaac HayesRoyal Rappin's ... LP
Polydor/Spring, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly nice session – and some duets that shouldn't be as good as they are! Ike's not at his prime here, but he's still good enough to bring out the best in Millie – who puts away her (by this time) increasingly raunchy act, and hits more of a straight soul vibe to match Ike's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jackson SistersJackson Sisters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... $13.99
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

People/Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Polydor (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New JBs InternationalJam II Disco Fever ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production!

No surprise, the JBs are ... read more CD

New 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

Polydor, 1973. Good+ ... $4.99
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.

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
