Legs EP ... LP Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)....
Heavy funk from a Bay Area legend – and an EP that features 4 previously unreleased tracks by Darondo, none of which are on his previous reissue on Luv N Haight!

Mad homegrown soul from the enigmatic Darondo – a brief Bay Area star back in the 70s, and also host of TV comedy and children's shows! Darondo only ever saw release of 3 singles, but they're all pretty darn great – a weird mix of funk, soul, and sly slinky grooves – very unique ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An incredible collection of work from the vastly-overlooked Geater Davis – and a set that definitely lives up to its title!

$12.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wickedly funky work from HP Riot – a legendary group from the San Francisco scene of the 70s, but one who never managed to break the big time!

Sweetback ... LP Luv N' Haight, 1975. New Copy (reissue)....
A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the ...

A legendary album from Chicago – recorded by a group with ties to Sun Ra, Phil Cohran, and Earth Wind & Fire!

Beautiful material from this legendary Bay Area soul jazz combo!
