Arista, 1977/1997. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own. The album's much more of a solid soul effort than the first one – which was great, but felt more like Herbie Had stepped out of the studio for a minute ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nice one! This obscure blacksploitation soundtrack features a hip Monk Higgins score for a Pam Grier film that's supposedly "Hotter than Coffey and meaner n' Foxy Brown".

A funky holy grail – one of the rarest of the rare, and the only album ever cut by funky guitarist Carl "Sherlock" Holmes!

New Willie HutchMack (2nd pressing) ... LP
Motown, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
Willie Hutch's classic score for this film about pimpin' and mackin'! The album (and film) is virtually a handbook for junior grade hoods, and we can remember back around 1990, when the first wave of candy-ass hardcore hip hoppers were coming up, this was sort of a holy grail. And it still holds ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Unbelievably beautiful work – and possibly the greatest album ever from the mighty Walter Jackson!

Great stuff – and a key link between the early work of the Jackson 5 on Motown and Michael's later grooves with Quincy Jones!
