New AfriqueSoul Makossa ... CD
Mainstream/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... read more CD

New Rance Allen GroupSoulful Experience ... CD
Truth/Stax, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful mix of gospelly soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s! David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect ... read more CD

Chess (Japan), 1975. Used ... $9.99
An album that begins with an amazing break – and then rolls into a great batch of fuzzy guitar grooves! The set is one of the odder albums to be issued by Chess Records during its funk years – as American Gypsy were a Dutch band, recording in Holland, and the record was only licensed ... read more CD

New Patti AustinBody Language ... CD
CTI (UK), 1980. Used ... $15.99
A sweet blend of jazz and soul from Patti Austin – recorded at Muscle Shoals studios, with a sound that's surprisingly rootsy on a few numbers! Patti's still got all the polish she picked up from her years with Quincy Jones, but she's also stepping out a bit more as an artist with a stronger ... read more CD

New Patti AustinIn & Out Of Love ... CD
Concord, 1998. Used ... $2.99
A relatively recent set from Patti Austin, but a great one too – an album that has her working in warmly jazzy arrangements that are much more restrained than her soul work of a few years before! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to the set – one that's somewhat smooth, as you might ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Patti AustinLove Is Gonna Getcha (with bonus track) ... CD
GRP, 1990. Used ... $4.99
Warm jazzy soul from Patti Austin – a record that still holds strongly in the sound she pioneered with GRP Records in earlier years, proof that Austin was one of the leading lights of the label during its classic years! There's a few tinnier keyboards here than a decade ago, but there's ... read more CD

New Roy AyersFever ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... read more CD

New Roy AyersNo Stranger To Love ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor!

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.

A nice bit of space age disco fantasy from Boney M – a set that's got a few more electronic touches than some of the group's other records, but which still continues in a straight ahead poppy vein!

CRS/Tramp (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99
A funky holy grail – one of the rarest of the rare, and the only album ever cut by funky guitarist Carl "Sherlock" Holmes! Carl's work on the guitar is incredible – fast riffing and jazzy, with a style that's dirtier and messier than some of his 70s jazz funk contemporaries, ... read more CD

New Phyllis HymanLoving You, Losing You – Classic Balladry Of Phyllis Hyman ... CD
RCA, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $5.99
Above all else, Phyllis Hyman brought a level of class to soul music that few other artists could ever match in her day.

New ImpressionsKeep On Pushing/People Get Ready ... CD
Kent (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $14.99
Two of the most excellent Impressions ABC albums, and the one's that are always nearly impossible to find on wax. Recorded in the years 1964 and 1965, just when Curtis Mayfield was beginning to get his political teeth, but when he still had an amazing talent for heartrending love songs. Includes ... read more CD

Sonorama (Germany), 1975. Used ... $9.99
A record that really lives up to its title, given the sweet Philly grooves of the set – a real surprise, given that the album was recorded in Germany!

New Michael JacksonDangerous (collector's edition – first pressing) ... CD
Epic, 1991. Used ... $19.99
One of those records that we remember dismissing at the time – but honestly, it really lives up to repeated listenings in later years! Sure, Michael Jackson's no longer working with Quincy Jones – and instead goes for Teddy Riley and some other (then) contemporary producers – but ... read more CD
(Out of print. Original pop-up display is in excellent shape!)

New Rick JamesCome Get It ... CD
Motown, 1978. Used ... $3.99
Rick James' first LP for Motown subsidiary Gordy – an effort that was to provide the blueprint for his later success!

New Rick JamesStreet Songs ... CD
Motown, 1981. Used ... $5.99
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and commercially – and actually got over far better than his more blatant attempts at crossover material on other records! The mix here is perfect – a true summation of ... read more CD

New Joe JonesYou Talk Too Much ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Joe Jones is a heck of a compelling singer here – way more than you might expect if you just know the title hit – even though that track's a gem too! The approach is early New Orleans soul, but also a bit more freewheeling than more familiar work of the time – with small combo ... read more CD

A seminal set from The Joneses – and a record that really set a whole new style for soul vocal groups in the 70s! The group soar into new heights with some of the growing sophistication of the east coast scene – bits of strings, tighter charts, and some cool pre-disco grooves – ... read more CD

Super hard to get import pressing of R Kelly's second LP, the one that really broke him out of the box and catapulted him to super-stardom.

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1983. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and ... read more CD

Tramp (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
Raw vintage soul from Lonnie Lester! Lonnie's smooth, honey sweet voice is such a fantastic foil for the often stripped-down, but driving sounds of these rare singles, it's hard to believe he's not a more celebrated figure. Well, it's never too late the start celebrating him – and this ... read more CD

New Earl LettStory Of Professor Earl Lett – 1965 to 1978 ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Funky sax genius from Professor Earl Lett – a cool combo player who cut some great funky 45s at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s! The cuts here are a mix of instrumental and vocal numbers – but even the latter have plenty of reed work from Earl, blown with a sharp-edged and ... read more CD

New Jimmy LewisGive The Poor Man A Break ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
Wonderful southern soul from the great Jimmy Lewis – one of the best unsung talents of the southern 70s scene, and a figure who's barely been represented properly on records! This excellent set is Kent's follow-up to their earlier Still Wanna Be Black CD on Jimmy – and like that one, ... read more CD

End/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible work from one of the greatest groups on the east coast scene at the end of the 50s – a wonderful harmony combo, but one with a hell of a lead singer too! Anthony's voice is hardly "little" here – as he belts it out with this raw soul power that's years ahead of its ... read more CD

New Little BeaverParty Down ... CD
Cat/Warner (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A funky classic from Little Beaver – one of the best albums to come out of the Miami scene of the mid 70s! Little Beaver lays down some righteous guitar and heavy vocals over a cool spare backing groove on this one. It's a party, alright, but it's got the feel of the smoldering, latenight ... read more CD

Dimension/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Not just a key record from the lovely Little Eva, but also a key moment for the young Carole King – who co-wrote the record, conducted the group, and also did the arrangements with help from Claus Ogerman! If you know the title hit, you'll know the groove here – a great raw take on 60s ... read more CD
