TemptationsWish It Would Rain ... LP
Gordy, 1968. Very Good ... $7.99
An excellent album by the Temps – one that shows the group digging a bit deeper for a harder soul sound, working in a mode that would soon explode into the heavier numbers that would transform their sound completely.

TemptationsWith A Lot O' Soul ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
The Temptations pick up a lot of soul on this classic Motown set – a deeper, darker groove than ever before – the start of that fuzzy psychedelic soul style that made them one of the most inventive Motown acts of the late 60s! Deep basslines roll out strongly right from the start of ... read more CD

A&M, 1978. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great little solo set from Jean Terrell – a singer who's probably best known for her work as the leader of The Supremes after Diana Ross left the group, but who sounds even better here on her own!

A real lost group from the early 80s Chicago scene – but a great one!

Marlin/Henry Stone, 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 12.99
A tight bit of dancefloor funk from the duo of Frank and Eddie Dillard – one on guitar, one on bass, and both on vocals – both working here with some great clubby production from Walter Murphy! The set's got a bit more edge than Murphy's own records – thanks to the emphasis on ... read more CD

UnityUnity ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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

Red Greg, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent! The cut's a dancefloor classic – and it's got this wonderful little moogy instrumentation that's a perfect example of the genius of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael, who put the whole thing together, and who give the cut a real P&P funky flavor. A real killer, and one that ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

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
