New Johnny AceMemorial Album ... LP
Duke, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The only full album from Johnny Ace – a key figure in the Memphis scene of the 50s, and one of the first great casualties of rock and roll!

Capitol, 1977. Very Good- ... $24.99
A fantastic bit of spacey soul – and an amazing collaboration between the Mizell Brothers and vocalist Rance Allen!

A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection!

New Roy AyersLet's Do It ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Very Good ... $2.99

New Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Later Bar-Kays at their best – still plenty funky, but also working in a smoothly soulful style that became the group's trademark sound at Mercury!

New Archie Bell & The DrellsHard Not To Like It ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the strong Philly LPs by Archie Bell and the Drells (and they really did make the transition to Philly pretty well).

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New William BellPhases Of Reality ... LP
Stax, 1972. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A full, rich set from William Bell – one that's got a headier 70s approach than some of his earlier work for Stax – with a set of themes that clearly pick up on the socially conscious vibe of the time, set to arrangements that include a bit more keyboards and funky guitar than usual! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Chuck BerrySan Francisco Dues ... LP
Chess, Early 70s. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the weirdest Chuck Berry albums ever – and one of the greatest, too!

New Black IvoryFeel It ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sweet mellow soul meets the burgeoning east coast club soul sound – and the results are incredible!

New BlackbyrdsFlying Start ... LP
BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New BloodstoneDo You Wanna Do A Thing? ... LP
London, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Blue MagicBlue Magic ... LP
Atco, 1974. Sealed ... $19.99
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New BohannonBohannon ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A massive amount of fast funk groovers from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – just the kind of skittish, upbeat, and totally amazing tracks that have made him a legend for years!

New Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album.

New BrickGood High ... LP
Bang, 1976. Very Good ... $2.99
A killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time!

New Chuck Brown & The Soul SearchersFunk Express ... LP
Source, 1980. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Post-We The People, post-"Ashley's Roachclip", but pre-Go Go, very much in the vein of the great Bustin' Loose album.

New James BrownEverybody's Doin' The Hustle & Dead On The Double Bump ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Good+ ... $7.99
One of James Brown's last great funky records! The record's got a number of nice cuts – like the stone cold funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad, Superslick".

James Brown gets a new injection of life at the end of the 80s – thanks to a collaboration here with Full Force, who wrote, arranged, and produced the album!

New James BrownPapa's Got A Brand New Bag ... LP
King, 1965. Good+ ... $6.99
Here's where things really started getting interesting for James Brown!

King, Late 60s. Good+ ... $39.99
A rare rare James Brown killer!

New Jerry ButlerSoul Goes On ... LP
Mercury, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99

New Jerry ButlerYou & Me ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
A great little album by Jerry – recorded during a period where he was using his fame (and cash!) to showcase younger talents in soul music.

New Jimmie & Vella CameronJimmie & Vella ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Obscure bit of soul from this duo who also recorded an earlier record on Imperial. The vibe is sort of a straight 70s groove, and Vella's vocals are a bit more upfront than Jimmie's.

New Captain SkyConcerned Party No 1 ... LP
TEC, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums by this super-stylized funkster from Chicago!

New Jimmy CastorHey Leroy – Your Mama's Calling You ... LP
Smash, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
An excellent bit of Latin groove – one of our favorite crossover boogaloo sets from the 60s, and easily some of the greatest work ever by Jimmy Castor! And yes, this is the same Jimmy Castor who's known for his funk albums of the 70s – but back in the day, he was open-minded enough to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet campy disco classic – and a record that's been close to our hearts for years!

New Gene ChandlerTwo Sides Of Gene Chandler ... LP
Brunswick, 1969. Very Good- ... $7.99
A fantastic lost album by the great Gene Chandler – and one of his most sophisticated soul documents! The record was Gene's last album for Brunswick – issued shortly before Gene scored big once again on Mercury, which is why it's probably often lost in the shuffle of time. The record's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick, 1970. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups!

Sussex, 1971. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A landmark LP of guitar-based funk!

Atco, 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Not Sweet Soul, but deep soul – courtesy of one of the best artists recording for Atlantic Records in the 60s!

New Davis ImportYou're The One ... LP
AVI, 1980. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent EP – featuring only 3 tunes, but all very soulful!

New Don DowningDoctor Boogie ... LP
Roadshow, 1979. Very Good ... $3.99
A bit disco, a bit funk – but with lots of influences of the early 70s East Coast hit soul sound. The record makes a clear attempt to hit the dancefloor – but it sounds a lot more like some of the Roadshow or Buddah albums from 1974 and 1975 than it does a late 70s after-the-fact sort ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Dr John, The Night TripperRemedies ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Gonzo grooves from cosmic physician Dr. John! This is one of the trippiest of Dr. John's early albums, and a really messed-up mix of New Orleans R&B, 60s funk, and psychedelic influences.

Motown, 1970. Good ... $6.99
A very hip album from the Four Tops – cut with kind of a political/social edge, and a heavy vibe that was similar to what the Temptations had been using on some of their important albums for Motown at the end of the 60s.

Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever!
