New ADC BandLong Stroke ... CD
Cotillion/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
ADC Band take a long stroke on the funky bass – borrowing all the best P-Funk elements from their Detroit counterparts – but also helping the music find a tighter, more focused groove too!

New Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend ... CD
Curtom (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of ... read more CD

Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
William Bell was one of Stax's first great male singers, prefacing Otis Redding by a few years with his initial recordings for the label.

Chess (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Chuck Berry's way more than just rocking for sock hops here – as the set has the seminal figure working at the height of his powers – in a raw, stripped-down setting that still packs way more punch than you might remember if you only think of Chuck in terms of all those over-used ... read more CD

New James BrownSoul On Top ... CD
King/Verve, 1970. Used ... $7.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's ... read more CD

Tuff City/Funky Delicacies, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
An essential bit of funkiness from this obscure New Orleans funk combo! The Gaturs' frontman was keyboardist Willie Tee – who went on to greater fame as a jazz and session player – but we like him best at this early point, when he was wailing away on organ in a tight choppy small group ... read more CD

Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – ... read more CD

New Sly & The Family StoneStand! ... CD
Epic (Australia), 1969. Used ... $6.99
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly Stone – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more – hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way!

Stax, 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Soul folk in style, soul folk in identity – this early Stax album has The Staple Singers working in a style that perhaps owes a bit more to their gospel roots than some of their other work from the mid 70s.

Motown (Japan), 1977. Used ... $9.99
Beautiful spacey soul from Syreeta – and proof that she was one of Motown's great lost talents of the 70s!
