One of the best funky LPs by Rufus Thomas – recorded in the early 70s with backing by The Movement and The Bar Kays, and with a good raw Stax sound on most cuts!

RCA (Japan), 1983. Used ... $26.99
Slammin' 80s groove material from Fonzi Thornton – a bit dated, perhaps, but sparkling with the best of its generation!

The first Salsoul album from Tierra – a great west coast Latin soul combo who followed strongly in the tradition of Malo and El Chicano!

Undisputed TruthDown To Earth ... LP
Gordy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Undisputed Truth at the height of their powers – still working in the psychedelic soul style they forged with Norman Whitfield at the end of the 60s – but with a groove that's tighter and sharper than ever before! We might well call the record the funkiest the group ever cut – as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Undisputed TruthUndisputed Truth ... LP
Gordy, 1971. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A perfect example groove that got The Undisputed Truth big hit fame in the early 70s – sort of a rumbling funk, full-on approach, using male/female vocals in kind of a "wall of soul" approach. Includes the huge hit "Smiling Faces Sometimes", plus lots of covers of cool ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

UnityUnity ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Obscure modern soul album on United Artists, with a strong sound that's heading towards an 80s groove, but which also has elements of Luther's work during the late 70s. The group features two male and one female singer – and the overally vocal approach is solos on the verses, and harmony on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Universal MessengersUniversal Messengers – An Experience In The Blackness Of Sound ... LP
Turbo/Barnyard (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99

Unlimited TouchSearching To Find The One ... CD
Prelude/Unidisc, Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
An excellent bit of 80s groove! Unlimited Touch have a cool 2-female lead vocal style – and they keep it tight and soulful on grooves that have a nice tight club sound, in a style that often reminds us of Roy Ayers produced albums, like Ladies Of The 80s, or some of the more uptempo tracks ... read more CD

Phil UpchurchBig Hit Dances ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
A rare early cooker from Phil Upchurch – hardly the "hit dances" set you might guess from the title, and a stripped-down session that features plenty of organ next to Phil's guitar! There's a mode here that's very much like the Tru-Sound sessions on Prestige – clearly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a mostly split bottom seam, a small split on the top seam, and light wear, with a large marker inscription and some light stains on the back.)

Plenty of darkness here from Phil Upchurch – those great tones and notes he worked so well back in the 70s – all with that near-perfect quality that made him one of the most in-demand players of his day!

One of Phil Upchurch's best records – and one that's a no-nonsense batch of funky instrumentals that feature some really great guitar!

A really wonderful album – a warm bit of brown-eyed soul from the hip LA scene of the early 70s!

A tremendous bit of Chicago soul – from a very unlikely source! Dana Valery's an Italian singer by birth, and spent some time on the London scene in the 60s – but she soars out here in the best sort of Windy City groove we've come to love from the Brunswick label – a sound and ... read more CD

The only record from this group that would sort of morph into Apollonia 6, pretty much just one of many Prince vehicles during the 80s.
