RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". CD

New Rufus featuring Chaka KhanAsk Rufus ... LP
ABC, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $8.99
A stone cold classic, and probably the best record Rufus or Chaka ever did! By this point, they've honed their soul style into a nice jazzy groove, and Chaka's voice is in total control – without too much pyrotechnics, and with a nice mellow sound. Includes the classic hit "Hollywood", plus "Slow Screw Against The Wall", "Close The Door", and "Everlasting Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rufus featuring Chaka KhanRags To Rufus ... LP
ABC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic early album by Chaka Khan and the jazzy soul group Rufus – and the record that pushed them over the top, chartwise! The album features their huuuuuge hit "Tell Me Something Good", a simply incredible workout that was the perfect mainstream showcase for Chaka's great voice, made even better by the use of one of those cool Peter Frampton-vocoder thingies. The album also features some other excellent material that's a bit more restrained, and more in the band's usual jazz funk mode – like "Ain't Nothing But A Maybe", "You Got The Love", "Smokin Room", and "Sideways".

New Rufus featuring Chaka KhanRufusized ... LP
ABC, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure, it was a hit – but it's also an excellent batch of jazzy soul, sung by one of the 70's greatest voices, backed by a sweet mellow vibe that's still influencing hip hoppers today. Includes the incredible track "Stop On By", plus the instrumental "Rufusized", "I'm A Woman", "Somebody's Watching You", "Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me Of A Friend)", and "Right Is Right". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, and some staining inside the gatefold.)

New VariousBreakin' – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Polydor, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The movie maybe a goofy, if undeniably amusing pop culture relic, but the Polydor soundtrack is a genuine win! This is an album that doubtlessly brought breakdance and old school hip hop culture into the eyes of middle America – but what helps it stand the test of time are some solid non-hip hop cuts like "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus & Chaka Khan, "Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by The Bar-Kays, the smooth club hit "99 1/2" by Carol Lynn Townes, "Body Work" by Hot Streak and produced by Jellybean. Also includes "Reckless" by The Glove featuring vocals by Ice T. LP, Vinyl record album
