KalapanaKalapana III ... LP
Abattoir, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
Another extremely strong batch of 70s AOR grooving from Kalapana – a tight ensemble who were kind of Hawaii's answer to the slicker sounds of the LA scene during the mid 70s. Kalapana appeal to our ears in the same way as America, later Doobie Brothers, and other smooth and mellow mainstream ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New KanoNew York Cake ... LP
Atlantic/Mirage, 1981. Very Good+ ... $7.99
The New York in the title is very apt – as the album's got a lot more soul, and a lot more solid club groove than some of Kano's other albums from the 80s! The overall feel is really great – moving along in a post-disco groove that's mostly based around spare rhythms, simple ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

KashifKashif (1983) ... LP
Arista, 1983. Very Good ... $6.99
A monumental bit of 80s soul – the first solo album from Kashif, issued hot on the heels of a few years spent penning and producing work for a range of bigger artists! Given his experience with the pros, Kashif's emerging here as a very fully-formed talent in soul – a singer with a way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul KellyStand On The Positive Side ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of Kelly's last records of the 70s – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still quite strong overall, with some excellent vocals on most tracks. Gene Page handled the arrangements and production – and he gives Kelly some nice backgrounds to work with, ones that have a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie KendricksBoogie Down! ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston!

Eddie KendricksHe's A Friend ... LP
Tamla, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of Eddie's monster LPs of the 70s! The whole affair was produced by Norman Harris, who, along with Vince Montana and TG Conway, gave the album a sweet set of Philly arrangements that worked perfectly with Eddie's strident soul-boogie style. Ballads and uptempo groover work equally well – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eddie KendricksHit Man ... LP
Tamla, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Eddie certainly was the "hit man" on this one – a tight album of hard stepping soul tracks, mostly cut in Eddie's famous "boogie" mode of the mid 70s! The cuts mix wonderful soul vocals with some tight jazzy instrumentation – laid down by players like Wah Wah Ragin, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie KendricksSlick ... LP
Tamla/Motown, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Someth ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka KhanChaka ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka KhanWhat Cha' Gonna Do For Me ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Wonderful stuff – and despite what you might think about her work with Rufus, we've always felt that Chaka Khan was equally good, if not better, during the early years of her solo career. This album's a totally solid soul effort, with production by Arif Mardin that's right up there with his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kid Creole & The CoconutsDoppelganger ... LP
Island, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The expansive musical mind of August Darnell stretches on in this fourth album from Kid Creole & The Coconuts – a blend of dancefloor rhythms and unusual tunes with a B-Movie approach to pop!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kid Creole & The CoconutsI, Too, Have Seen The Woods ... LP
Sire, 1987. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A later effort from the Kid – still flailing away with a steady, modern calypso pop back beat – and very smooth, ultra-laidback vocal approach! The production is very of of the era, but manages to break free of the over-muffled syncopated drum sound of the time. It's not one of Kid's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kid Creole & The CoconutsWise Guy ... LP
Sire/Ze, 1982. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Ha! This one really takes us back! The set was a massive breakthrough for August Darnell – one of his biggest hits since his day with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, with an equally appealing approach to the dancefloor. Tracks mix early 80s New York club styles with Darnell's mad ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ben E KingSupernatural ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A brilliant 70s comeback for Ben E King – a record that shows the world that his vocals are still some of the best in soul, long after his early hits – and a massively mature effort that also grooves like a mofo! King's style here is completely different than before – rich, full, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clydie KingDirect Me ... LP
Lizard, 1971. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A brilliant debut from Clydie King – a singer who worked countless backing vocal sessions on the LA scene of the 70s, but who really shines here on her own! Clydie's got a rough and raw vocal style that you might guess from the hip-looking cover – a slightly rootsy mode that's clearly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Evelyn Champagne KingSmooth Talk ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life!

(Cover has light wear and a sticker spot.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
King Biscuit BoyKing Biscuit Boy ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An unlikely bit of southern funk! Richard Newell – aka King Biscuit Boy – is a white Canadian blues performer, and not the kind of guy we'd normally rate – but on this album, he's lucky enough to get production from Allen Toussaint, who goes full-out to make this a fine fine ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New King CurtisEverybody's Talkin' ... LP
Atco, 1972. Very Good+ ... $5.99
King Curtis' last album of studio work for Atlantic – pulled from a number of sessions recorded in the year before his untimely early death!

King CurtisOld Gold ... LP
Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
A sweet early cooker from King Curtis – recorded with a raw sound and a sense of fire that most of his other albums from this time didn't have! Part of the difference here is the setting – as the album's cut for Prestige's Tru-Sound subsidiary, which tended to have a rougher, more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
King CurtisTrouble In Mind ... LP
Tru Sound, 1961. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An unusual early one for King – a special album in that it features him singing and playing guitar, in addition to his usual work on alto sax! The session was cut early in his career, before he'd forged the trademark approach that kind of locked him in in later years – and it's a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King Curtis & The KingpinsKing Size Soul ... LP
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
A classic King Curtis LP, and the one that includes his stellar cut "Memphis Soul Stew", a nice slow groover that has some excellent drums and basslines, and which has been sampled at least a handful of times!

Weird stuff. This album is exactly the same as the record he released on Pulsar under the title Man In Love – but, this copy's on VIP, but with the same cover, the same tracks, and just a different title.

Cotillion, 1971. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the best-remembered moments from the mighty King Floyd – a southern soul singer who came into the game slightly later than some of his Atlantic Records contemporaries, but who still packs a punch that's right up there with the best of them!

King FloydThink About It ... LP
Chimneyville/Atco, 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An excellent album from King Floyd – possibly his best, and proof that the harder side of southern soul sound was still alive and well in the 70s!

MCA, 1985. Very Good+ ... $0.99
The group's third release – and although they've dropped the space suits, they're still grooving nicely in a slightly electric mode!

Gladys KnightGladys Knight ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99

Gladys Knight & The PipsAll I Need Is Time ... LP
SOUL, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
A nice set that follows the soft southern mode that Knight virtually invented in the early 70s – a style that almost takes the earlier achievements of Aretha Franklin, and redirects them to a hipper, more adult audience for the new decade – and sometimes a crossover one at that!

A magic carpet ride of funky soul from Kool & The Gang – classic Open Sesame from '76 – one that took the group to a higher level!

MCA, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
The last record we've ever seen by this funky vocal combo – and every bit as tasty as their early work for Fantasy Records!

One of a number of 70s repackagings of Patti Labelle's early work with The Bluebelles – done, in this instance, to appear to be a collection of work by then supergroup Labelle!

Up Front, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Note that the title doesn't say "Patti Labelle & The Bluebelles LIVE At the Apollo" – as the record features studio recordings, and the title probably only is meant to infer that they played the Apollo now and then.

(Cover has some wear and minor creases.)

Cheryl LynnPreppie ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Hard to believe that a preppie look could ever be associated with a soul singer, but by the time of this 1983, the preppie craze had spread so much that it actually provided Cheryl Lynn a nice way to update her style! There's nothing preppie about the music, though – and the record's a great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph MacDonaldSound Of A Drum ... LP
Marlin, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the better albums of funky soul by percussionist Ralph MacDonald – probably because the groove's a bit more jazzy and tight, with less of the silliness of his other albums. The tracks feature a range of great jazz funk players – including Bob James, Eric Gale, Richard Tee, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Magic LadyMagic Lady (Arista) ... LP
Arista, 1980. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Michael Stokes produced and wrote most of the songs for this album by the female singing trio, Magic Lady. It's got a nice blend of dance tracks and some with a slower tempo.

New Main IngredientBlack Seeds ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the most righteous albums ever cut by this 70s soul group – and a record that was the last to feature vocalist Donald McPherson, as he died shortly after the album was recorded. The record includes the massive cut "Black Seeds Keep On Growing", which has a great message feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, some minor seam splitting, and some small stains, with some pen and a couple of wrinkles on the back.)

Main IngredientEuphrates River ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp & light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Main IngredientLTD ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A great early album by Main Ingredient – with the roots of their classic 70s harmony sound, and some excellent arrangements by Bert De Coteaux that give the band a nice tight sound. The album's a great illustration of the sort of pop soul sound the band was perfecting – a style that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, splitting top & bottom seams and some peeling on the spine.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Main IngredientRolling Down A Mountainside ... LP
RCA, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Mid 70s magic from The Main Ingredient – a set that has the trio working with even more sophistication than on previous records, yet still holding onto all the harmonies that always made them great! Cuba Gooding's lead is wonderful – rich and full of feeling, and slinking nicely over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ManchildFeel The Phuff ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Classic late 70's Chi soul group, with some very early work by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, and vocal and tenor work by Reggie Griffin. The tracks are mostly uptempo ensemble funk, with a smooth production sound that doesn't always bring out the group's best talents. Titles include "Ou ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New MandreMandre ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
We have to admit we've passed this album up for years and years, as it seems to be rather ubiquitous in these parts, and boy were we mistaken! Side one is mostly instrumental, and sounds like a lost Dexter Wansel album, with sophisticated, spacey post-fusion arrangements and a quasi-futuristic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint- ... $12.99
One of the best records ever by Mandrill – and a perfect balance between the looser jazzy spirituality of earlier albums, and the tighter (sometimes too tight) style of later ones. The band is incredibly tight on the funk tip – with lots of hard drums and guitars, and other sweet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing booklet.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MandrillSolid ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A tasty set from Mandrill – one of their first records away from the Polydor label, but every bit as great as later efforts for that company, especially Mandrilland. The overall sound is a bit smoother than some of their full-out funky albums – but in a way that really helps blend ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ManhattansAfter Midnight ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
Stellar Manhattans from the start of the 80s – and proof that the group could still hold strong, even at a point when soul music was really changing up around them! The sound is somewhat smoother than before, but never in a throwaway style – and as you might guess from the title, the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teena MarieIt Must Be Magic ... LP
Gordy, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Maybe the greatest album that Teena Marie ever cut – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of the lady's work for Motown! The set's got this bright, positive bounce that grabs you right from the start – but also moves into a depth that's way different than other funk albums of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A stunning solo effort – Teena's second on Epic, and proof that she could still put out the goods on her own!

MarvelettesMarvelettes Greatest Hits ... LP
Motown, 1966. Very Good ... $8.99
An early collection of singles from one of Motown's first standout vocal groups – the mighty mighty Marvelettes, one of those groups who put a rough edge on the female trio sound! The set's filled with loads of catchy little numbers that really define the early Motown approach – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, Mid 60s. Poor ... $9.99

Dynamo, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent bit of party funk – and a real precursor to musical party records of the 70s! Harmon Bethea is the "Mask Man", and he's working here with his Agents – a very popular live act at the time, with a mixture of raunchy grooves and blue humor, ala Doug Clark & The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Curtom, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover!

Curtis MayfieldShort Eyes ... LP
Curtom, 1977. Very Good- ... $14.99
A great little record – despite the fact that the album was one of the factors that buried the Curtom record label!

Curtom/RSO, 1980. Very Good- ... $16.99

Curtom, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully wicked album from Curtis Mayfield – one that's not nearly as famous as his Superfly set, but which is every bit as great!

A nice mid 70s collection of classic 60s ABC work by Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions.
