Lyn CollinsCheck Me Out If You Don't Know Me By Now ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
The mellower of Lyn Collins' two albums for the People label – but still pretty darn fantastic! At some level, it seems like Lyn's taking on the rest of the soul industry – showing them that she can kick some major booty on her interpretations of hits like "Backstabbers", ... read more CD

Executive SuiteExecutive Suite 1 ... LP
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A gem of a full-length set from Executive Suite – a Philly quartet who are probably best known for their singles in the 70s, but who really find a great way to open up here in the course of an expanded album! Some of the tracks are nice and long – done in a two-part style that really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
An overlooked groover from Gloria Gaynor – warm, wonderful, and filled with some great Philly touches!

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!

Isaac HayesBest Of The Polydor Years ... CD
Polydor, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $2.99
Great later work by Isaac Hayes – working here in a post-Stax, post-ABC mode that has him forging a smooth soul sound that's really great!

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

Millie Jackson & Isaac HayesRoyal Rappin's ... LP
Polydor/Spring, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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

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

JBsBreakin' Bread ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
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

JBsDamn Right I Am Somebody ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
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

JBsDoing It To Death ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
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 ... Around September 25, 2014
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 ... Around September 25, 2014
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 ... Around September 25, 2014
It's the late 70s, James' head is all addled, he thinks he's the guy who invented disco, and he starts turning his extended funky sound towards the clubs. By this point, Fred and Maceo had left him, so he's working here with a new version of the JBs, one that still includes Jimmy Nolan on guitar ... read more CD

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
