CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... $84.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label promo pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, a spot of tape on the back, a small peeled spot near the spine, with a bit of pen & pencil. Label has a bit of faded marker.)

New Marlena ShawWho Is This Bitch, Anyway? ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good ... $8.99
A great record from the mid 70s – one that has Marlena Shaw further developing her style as a sophisticated soul diva with a sharp modern edge! Although already great in the 60s, Shaw emerges here as an all-adult, all-woman singer – dealing with issues that never would have gotten ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ShawDiscover Me ... LP
Phase 4/London, 1976. Near Mint- ... $2.99
An obscure bit of disco from the UK – possibly put together by Brit Easy man Roland Shaw – mostly pretty sleepy, but with a few nice numbers that have kind of a smooth and easy feel to them. There's a few female vocals floating in and out of the mix, but mostly on the campier numbers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – ... read more CD

A nice collection of tracks from this classic girl group, and one that has a lot of lesser-known material that's pretty darn nice! Includes their very groovy "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World" – plus the tracks "Boys", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Don't Go Home (My ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New ShirellesSpontaneous Combustion ... LP
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Killer live set with a sound that's waaaaay rawer than any of their studio albums of the time. The show was recorded live at Columbia University, before a very eager crowd, and put together with the sort of live recording style pioneered by James Brown at the time (but not on his "fake" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Southbound/Ace (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $14.99
A long-overdue collection of work by one of the greatest funky soul groups of the 70s – the mighty mighty Side Effect, a combo who cut some killer albums for Fantasy at the end of the decade!

Side EffectWhat You Need ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99

Labi SiffreRemember My Song ... LP
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years! But over and above the fame of the funky tunes "The Vulture" and "I Got The", the record's a key part of Siffre's 70s catalog – a record that's as great for its ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Labi SiffreSinger & The Song (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI (UK), Used ... $9.99
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit ... read more CD

Bunny SiglerLet Me Party With You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Octave (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the best of Bunny Sigler's disco albums – a classic pairing with a the group Instant Funk, and a record that helped define the second generation of the Philly groove! Bunny's still got some of the sweeter touches of earlier years, but he also comes across with a much fuller vocal ... read more CD

Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!

(White label promo.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New SilkSilk ... LP
Prelude, 1977. Very Good ... $69.99
A great lost soul record on Prelude – with much more of a mellow feel than the label's usual disco groove!

New Silver ConventionMadhouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Midland/Big Break, 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The Silver Convention groove is nicely opening up on this set – with an approach that actually seems a bit jazzier than the group's first two albums, bringing more of a focus on the keyboards of Silvester Levay – who's really the brainchild behind the whole group anyway! At some level, ... read more CD

Spring, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
By this point in his career, Joe's a long way from the country soul of "The Chokin' Kind" – and is working here on more strident club-oriented tracks designed to keep him fresh for the 70s.

Although Valerie Simpson's on her own as the singer here, Nick Ashford was in the studio for most of the set, helping Valerie produce and write most of the cuts on the album.

The one and only LP released by this funky soul duo from Chicago! Simtec & Wylie were formed in the shape of Sam & Dave, Bob & Earl, Mel & Tim, and other famous 60s male duos – but they had a madder approach that was the fruit of many years of making funky 45's, and (given ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New SlaveStone Jam ... LP
Cotillion, 1980. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
We couldn't think of a better way to describe the sound of Slave than "stone jam"!

Cotillion, 1982. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Non-stop grooving from Slave – a record that has them losing the lead talents of Steve Arrington, but not missing a beat! As with Showtime, the sound here is a nicely smoothed-out approach to the bassy funk the group helped forge at the end of the 70s – a more soul-based sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SpidersSpiders – The Imperial Sessions ... CD
Imperial/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... $32.99 34.98
Lost harmony soul by an excellent New Orleans vocal group! The Spiders were certainly not chart-toppers in their day – but they did get the chance to cut a great number of singles in the 50s for the Imperial label, who were having some great luck on the Crescent City scene with other singers. ... read more CD

Kory, 1977. Sealed ... $1.99
Nice collection of The Spinners pre-Atlantic material, originally recorded for Motown in the late 60s. Includes their classic "It's A Shame", which is hard to find on wax in any form, plus other killer cuts like "Oooh Child", "Truly Yours", "We'll Have It ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersBest Of The Spinners (Motown) ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Way more than just a "best of" – as the record is more like a full Spinners album for Motown – issued as a way of bringing together some of the best singles the group recorded for the label! The work's not really hits – at least not at the level of the group's later ... read more CD

SpinnersOriginal Spinners ... LP
Motown, 1967. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Amazing early work from The Spinners – an early Motown record that's quite different than the more famous sound of the group recording in Philly with Atlantic Records in the 70s – done with an even stronger approach on the harmonies, at a level that really gets at the group's roots! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersPick Of The Litter ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
Classic Philly Spinners – with Philippe Wynne on lead vocals, and Thom Bell arranging and producing with that hit sound he gave the group during the 70s! The record may not of given the band as many hits as some of the others, but it's got an excellent Philly sound – with backing by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersSpinners Live ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A fascinating little record by The Spinners – and a real contrast to some of their other Atlantic albums! The set has them stepping out of the tightly controlled studio sound of their Philly albums – still working with Thom Bell on production, but doing so in a freer sort of live ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersSuperstar Series – The Spinners ... LP
Motown, 1980. Very Good ... $3.99
While Motown was great at a lot of things, perhaps they were best at repackaging their catalog in a number of different ways. This set brings together a nice batch of the Spinners' great pre-Atlantic work for the label. Includes their classic "It's A Shame", which surprisingly isn't all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1973. Used ... $28.99
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame ... read more CD

A great later moment from the Five Stairsteps – served up by a mature version of the group, who are now all adults at the time of recording – and come together in a great new groove!

A fantastic track – grooving along at a rich soulful midtempo pace that owes a heck of a lot to Soul II Soul, but which also is the perfect showcase for Lisa's wonderfully soulful vocals. And sure, it got played to death when it came out – but that's what makes it a classic, and just ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Excellent early work from The Staple Singers – one of their first recordings, and an all-gospel album that's drenched in the same sort of soul that you'd hear on their big hits of later years – a key influence on the sound of the secular 60s, heard here in its best original format!

Perfect work from The Staple singers – a tight blend of gospel soul and Memphis funk, handled here with a tightness that avoids all the cliches of some of the group's later work!

Possibly the closest thing to an early "hit" the Staple Singers ever had – an album that starts off with their classic rendition of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", an instantly timeless tune penned by Roebuck Staples!

Standout solo work from Mavis Staples – a set that really expands the Stax sound nicely with a bit of strings to sweeten up the groove!
