New Barbara AcklinLove Makes A Woman ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good- ... $7.99
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers! Acklin had a classy sound that was different than some of her raw soul sisters in the city – but although she was classy, she also didn' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Bar-KaysLight Of Life ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good- ... $4.99
Proof that even a move to a major label couldn't keep the Bar-Kays down – as the group are working here in a great groove that's wider, fresher, and stronger overall than any of their Stax albums! Sure, the whole thing's not guitar-based funk all the way through, but the group are also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Bar-KaysToo Hot To Stop ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New BazukaBazuka ... LP
A&M, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A pretty nice little album of soulful instrumental tracks – arranged, composed, and produced by Tony Camillo, who'd done some fine work in previous years for hit artists like Honey Cone, Freda Payne, and Chairmen Of The Board. These tracks have much more of a funky electric approach – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New William BellPhases Of Reality ... LP
Stax, 1972. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
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 BerryLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years!

New Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New J BlackfootU Turn ... LP
Edge, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Not as strong as some of Blackfoot's other solo work – a mix of styles that has his roots in the Memphis scene getting a bit of an 80s production touch, sometimes a bit too tinny to sound great, at others rolling into more comfortable territory with a warmer feel. Homer Banks wrote and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New BlowflyBlowfly's Freak Party ... LP
Oops, Late 80s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
It's the 80s, and Blow's really gone over the top! He's working with some tinny arrangements here that are more Prince-like than his 70s funky grooves – and probably to compensate for that, he's turned up the porno language even more than usual, going to town with the bad words on tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s!

One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop tunes.

New James BrownPlays James Brown Today & Yesterday ... LP
Smash, 1965. Very Good ... $6.99
Funky instrumentals – with James on organ, grooving hard in a raw 60s R&B mode! Lots of the tracks are versions of James' big 60s hits – like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "Try Me", and "Out of Sight" – but there are also some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $14.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America.

New James BrownShowtime ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the odder James Brown records from the 60s – as it includes 11 studio tracks with overdubbed audience. James was under contract with King at the same time, and couldn't record new vocal material for Smash – so the record doesn't contain any JB originals, but covers of Louis ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New CapitolsDance The Cool Jerk ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good- ... $16.99

The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single.

New Jimmy CastorE-Man Groovin ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good ... $5.99
Jimmy Castor's looking mighty butch on the cover of this one – what with the leather and motorcycle in the photo – and he's bringing all that energy to play strongly on the album's heavy heavy funk tracks!

New CerroneCerrone 8 – Back Track ... LP
Pavillion/CBS, 1982. Very Good ... $2.99
A pronounced change in modes for Cerrone – partly moving back here to keyboard-infused disco, but also hitting some more soulful modes, and sliding into some mellow tunes that sound surprisingly nice!

Niles Rodgers indelibly carved a place in history for himself with the handful of albums he cut with Chic at the tail end of the disco age.

Tamla/Motown, 1970. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Marvin Gaye gets some fantastic help here from Norman Whitfield – whose production gives the record a much more righteous sound than some of Gaye's sweeter soul of the 60s – a really heavy undercurrent that strongly hints at modes to come!

Epic, 1978. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
The second album by Heatwave – and a great effort that's almost as perfectly sublime as the first!

Curtom, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the lesser-known Leroy Hutson LPs, but still a damn good one.

A wonderful album from the Isley Brothers – and a real departure from their funkier sound of the 70s!

New Michael JacksonMusic & Me ... LP
Motown, 1973. Very Good ... $5.99
Classic early work by Michael Jackson – a record that has him stepping away from the Jackson 5, and really hitting a personal feel with some of the ballads – quite a surprise, given that his standout later solo work would be more focused on groovers!

Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Classic Jones Girls for Philly!

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!

One of the real standouts in Evelyn King's career – a sharply focused album that's filled with catchy 80s styled tunes – and which benefits from some great help from a young Kashif!

New Last Poets With Bernard PurdieDelights Of The Garden ... LP
Douglas, 1977. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Probably the funkiest record the Last Poets ever cut – with lots of heavy bass and drums, and a harder soul groove than on some of their other records.

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!

Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s.

Curtom, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
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!

Spacey disco, very much in the same mode as work by Alec Constandinos from the same time.
