Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest 70s moments from underground club maestro Patrick Adams – an amazing talent who's best known for his work on his own P&P family of record labels – but who steps out here with an even tighter sound!

New Platinum HookPlatinum Hook (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
An overlooked groover from late 70s Motown – served up on a record that might look more like a heavy metal outing, but which is tight clubby soul all the way through! Platinum Hook are a bit in the funky territory of early Commodores – save for the fact that they've got one female ... (Soul) read more CD

Bonnie PointerBonnie Pointer (1978) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Around June 2, 2014 (delayed)
A great Motown set from the 70s – a record that grooves with the new styles the label was exploring at the time, yet still has a rock-solid quality that links back to its 60s heritage too! The main strength here comes from Bonnie Pointer – whose vocals have an instantly classic sound ... (Soul) read more CD

Pointer SistersBlack & White (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall ... (Soul) read more CD

New Pointer SistersPriority ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

Arthur PrysockAll My Life (with bonus track) ... CD
Old Town/Big Break (UK), 1976. Used ... $8.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, ... (Vocalists) read more CD

New Don RayGarden Of Love ... CD
Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest club projects of the 70s – a set of tracks based around the keyboards of Don Ray, but handled with lots of electronic disco touches from Cerrone! The pair are great arrangers on their own, but together they really make some magic – kind of a leaner take on the ... (Soul) read more CD

Salsoul OrchestraNice N Naasty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type ...

New Salsoul OrchestraStreet Sense (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the stranger moments in the Salsoul catalog, but a great groover too – an album of tunes from films, interpreted by the Salsoul Orchestra in a soaring disco mode!

Philly World/Big Break (UK), 1982. Used ... $4.99
Early 80s funky soul from Search – a tight little group with a wickedly sharp edge! The combo is led by Les Paul Roque, fresh from his stint with Kool & The Gang – and the vibe here is similar to that group, but with a smaller combo approach overall – lots of bass at the ... (Soul) read more CD

New ShalamarFriends (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial ... (Soul) read more CD

Silver ConventionGet Up & Boogie (with bonus tracks) (aka Silver Connection) ... CD
Success/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A smash hit from Silver Convention – thanks to the dark pop disco hit "Get Up & Boogie", the leadoff tune on this surprisingly strong set!

New Silver ConventionMadhouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Midland/Big Break, 1976. New Copy ... Around October 27, 2014
The Silver Convention groove is nicely opening up on this set – with an approach that actually seems a bit jazzier than the group's first two albums, bringing more of a focus on the keyboards of Silvester Levay – who's really the brainchild behind the whole group anyway! Levay wrote ... (Soul) read more CD

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone classic from Skyy – one of those groups who virtually helped invent 80s groove! Like the best of the genre – such as Slave, BB&Q Band, and others – Skyy have a soulful approach that goes way past the simple cliches that other groups were so content to only muddle ... (Soul) read more CD

Edwin StarrInvolved (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Around September 8, 2014
After hitting the world with his political single "War", Edwin Starr set out to prove that he was, as the angry image on the cover shows, "involved". To do so, he teamed with Norman Whitfield for this album of surging bubbling righteous material, with the same sort of soul ... (Soul) read more CD

Original pressing of one of Edwin Starr's first, and best, albums of sweet Detroit soul.

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families!

New T-ConnectionMagic (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dash/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of Magic here from T-Connection – a clubby set of tracks, yet one that's still put together more like a funk combo record from the mid 70s!

Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99

Arista/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely grooving set to start the 80s by The Waters – an underappreciated 2-man, 2-woman LA vocal group who did a considerable amount of backup vocals in the studio scene of the late 70s – and this is easily their best record!

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1976. Used ... $6.99
Genius work from Denice Williams – a singer who'd cracked the charts a bit as Denice Chandler, with a little girl soul sound, way back in the 60s – but who's grown up considerably by this essential 70s set!

One of Lenny's first solo records – rawer than later work, thanks probably to the fact that he produced the record with Chester Thompson – and it's wonderful stuff!

Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A massive hit for the duo of Calvin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples – and for good reason too!

Classic club from Karen Young – definitely one of the campier talents on the West End label, but still pretty soulful overall!
