Capitol/BGO (UK), 1975/1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A triple pack of early magic from Natalie Cole!

New Johnny ColesWarm Sound (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who's probably best known to the world for his work with Charles Mingus, or for his other 60s session on Blue Note! This album's quite different than both of those aspects of Johnny's career – and has him ... read more CD

Polydor (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
The mellower of Lyn Collins' two albums for the People label – but still pretty darn fantastic! At some level, it seems like Lyn's taking on the rest of the soul industry – showing them that she can kick some major booty on her interpretations of hits like "Backstabbers", ... read more CD

New Willie ColonEl Malo (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 10.98
Great stuff – and a very sharp album cut by Willie during the Latin soul era, featuring a bunch of tracks that veers more towards the boogaloo side of things than his later albums! The groove is nice and hard – stripped down with the youthful energy that Willie brought to the scene at ... read more CD

New Con Funk ShunSecrets ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A great early album from Con Funk Shun – a mix of funkier tunes and some excellent smooth modern ones in step with the mellower work by Cameo or Maze – done with more soaringly emotional sounds that moves beyond their peers!

RCA, Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
A self-titled set that features a nice batch of lesser-known gems from Sam Cooke's early 60s years on RCA! Lots of the material here is a nice contrast to some of the hit-heavy Cooke sets on the market – not that those aren't great, but it's just good to hear some of the other sides of Sam's ... read more CD

New Dave Baby CortezDave Baby Cortez In Orbit ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Smoking Hammond work from the young Dave Cortez – sounding grittier here than on some of his other albums of the time – less pop, and almost with a soul jazz vibe overall – especially given some of his snakey solos! The record may be the closest that Cortez ever came to sounding ... read more CD

A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too!

New Miles DavisWater Babies ... CD
Columbia, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... read more CD

RCA, 1963. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the ... read more CD

New Earth Wind & FireGratitude ... CD
Columbia, 1975. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is ... read more CD

New Shelly FabaresShelly ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
The lovely Shelly Fabares was first a star on the TV screen, but she turned out to be a hell of a pop talent as well – really just the right sort of personality for dreamy little tunes in the style of Joanie Summers at the time!

New Shelly FabaresThings We Did Last Summer ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
We love the idea of spending the summer with Shelly Fabares – especially if it would sound as groovy as this rare gem from the 60s!
