David PorterInto A Real Thing ... LP
Enterprise, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Early work by David Porter – done in a style that's very similar to early solo work by his old writing partner Isaac Hayes. The tracks are long and baroque – a mixture of Memphis soul and some of the higher concept ideas that Ike was forging in his own work at the time. The set kicks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Preston16 Year Old Soul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Derby/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
Easily one of the coolest, hippest, and most soulful records that Billy Preston ever cut – very different both from his famous work on A&M, and his early sides for Apple and Vee Jay – and done with a raw groove that makes each cut feel like some rare funky 45! The style here is a ... read more CD

New Prince1999 ... LP
Warner, 1982. Very Good+ 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Here begins the period that Prince went from a fascinating, genre defying hitmaker to an unstoppable cultural force – bringing a bit of a new wave pop punch to the funky synth soul – and somehow crafting some of the most irresistible singles of the 80s!

Universal, 2006. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A strong effort from the mid 00s revitalized Prince – one that doesn't approach the greatness of the best material, but a graceful and consistent gem nonetheless!

New PrinceAround The World In A Day ... LP
Paisley Park, 1985. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A mad bit of soul psychedelia from Prince – a record that sounds better and better over the years, and which stands out from most of his 80s work thanks to some really unique production and songwriting! After Purple Rain, Prince did anything but wince in the face of living up to such a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PrinceControversy ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic Prince – an album that signaled an end to the first part of Prince's storied career, leaning heavily on his fascination with new wave, mixed with the r&b grooves and 70s funk of his earliest LPs. Prince is definitely in a transitional mode here, the easy politics of the punk era ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PrinceControversy (short, long) ... 12-inch
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $16.99
One of the first really breakout funky numbers from Prince – an anthemic groover that was also the title cut to his album of the same name! "Controversy" never sounded so good – with popping bass and sweetly gliding keys that emphasize the grooves! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Classic work from this massively overlooked 70s soul singer!

Nice lost funk LP released by Casablanca at the end of the 70's.

A killer debut from Rasputin Stash – a funky group who work with all the long-haired inspiration you'd expect from their name!

Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel (Japanese version) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1974. Used ... $11.99
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of ... read more CD

New RippleSons Of The Gods (with bonus track) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... $9.99
A really rich second album from Ripple – a group who took awhile to return to the studio, but really developed a lot in the process! The combo started out as a straight funk act – but here, they really take off with a tight approach to their instrumentation – razor-sharp work on ... read more CD

An obscure funky soul combo from the 80s – but one that includes key work from some older funky talents as well!

New Freddy RobinsonComing Atlantis (aka Black Fox) ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $13.99
A sweet album of funky guitar tracks, with Freddy Robinson out front over a bunch of tight LA Monk Higgins arrangements. Kind of a sleeper that hasn't really gotten as many props in the groove scene as it ought to, with a great sunny west coast 60s soul jazz vibe running throughout. Joe Sample ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James RobinsonGuilty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few records ever cut by James Robinson – a smoothed-voiced singer who should have been one of the bigger ballad stars of his time! Robinson's got a deep range to his style – and works here in some gently-stepping numbers that really stand head and shoulders above most of the ... read more CD

New Johnny RobinsonMemphis High ... LP
Epic, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The only album we've ever seen by Johnny Robinson – a rare non-Hi Records set produced by Willie Mitchell, with a sound that's as deeply soulful as some of the best indie work coming out of the Memphis scene in the 60s! Willie's style here is rougher than that used with Al Green or Ann ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey RobinsonBlame It On Love & All The Great Hits ... LP
Tamla, 1983. Sealed ... $1.99
A very mellow overview of Smokey's later solo work – the post-Quiet Storm period, when he was easily slipping from classic soul into adult contemporary territory – and really crossing over big at the time! And while we could probably say that most of this stuff is far watered down from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey RobinsonWhere There's Smoke (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1979. Used ... $19.99
Smooth Smokey at the end of the 70s – an album that has him moving from the Quiet Storm sound into the more hook-based style that would earn him a fair bit of hits in the 80s! The Robinson vocal approach is always sweet, warm, and mellow on the set – especially on the album's more ... read more CD

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesGreat Songs & Performances That Inspired The Motown 25th Anniversary TV Special ... CD
Motown, Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
Who would have thought it? Smokey's great career at Motown was just designed to be inspiration for a TV Special! Who cares, though? The set's still got some of his biggest hits for Motown, if you can get past the title – and tracks include "Mickey's Monkey", "Being With ... read more CD

Capitol/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Frankie "Sugar Chile" Robinson's definitely a singer who earned his name – as little Frankie was just a kid when he cut most of these sides for Capitol Records! The style's a familiar one for the time – jump blues and R&B – delivered with the same sort of intensity ... read more CD

William RobinsonPrime Time/I'm Ready ... 12-inch
Coast To Coast, 1983. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A great bit of mellow soul from William Robinson – a cut that's got a bit of a groove, but mostly stays laidback – in ways that let Will's vocals flow wonderfully, almost with a quiet storm feel. "I'm Ready" has heavier beats, and a bit more of a poppish funky groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
One of a handful of enigmatic albums cut in the early 70s by Sixto Rodriguez – a Latin-tinged singer with a style that's a bit like that of Jose Feliciano – but trippier, and with more rock and folk touches! This set's probably his best one – thanks to arrangements and production ... read more CD

Yipes! They didn't do a very good job on packaging this set, but it is an official release of some of DJ's stellar soul sides for Columbia from the late 70s. DJ's voice is fantastic on the material, with a deep rich baritone that we'd rate right up there with singers like Jon Lucien or Jerry ... read more CD

A pretty sweet 80s synth/pop/funk/R&B set by Evan Rogers – a few years after his time in the funky soul group Dayton (which is what we know Evan best for around here) – a mid 80s album that's heavy with the synthy sounds of the era and highlighted by some catchy songs and Evan's ... read more CD

A big one for Norman Whitfield – who found in Rose Royce what he'd been lacking for years – a hit group ready to handle a number of styles, all well, and all with an adventurous style that would break them past the legions of lackluster funky soul groups of the late 70s. The record ... read more CD
