Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Not Belgian music – despite what you might think from the title – but an assortment of great American soul and pop from the early 60s – all of which have a very sweet-stepping groove! The style here is the mode that's always been a favorite of Belgian soul fans – who dig a ... CD

RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – ... CD

Fuel 2000, Mid 70s. New Copy
Rare live work from the great Professor Longhair – issued here, unfortunately, without any full notes on the location or date of the recording – but still an excellent live document of this legendary New Orleans talent at work! The material is pretty great – hardly the studio ... CD

Kudu/Soul Brother (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy
A pair of 70s gems from Esther Phillips – back to back on a single CD! Black Eyed-Blues is one of Esther's strong winners for Kudu – a record that takes her soulful style of earlier years, and wraps it around some sly 70s funky arrangements! Ex-James Brown hornman Pee Wee Ellis ... CD

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
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! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, ... CD

Return Of Dolemite
Kent, Early 70s. Used
Dolemite returns, every bit as raw as on his debut – making for another funky feather in the cap of Rudy Ray Moore during the 70s! The album begins with the extended "Return Of Dolemite" piece – one that's almost a manifesto for Rudy's way of life at the time – and the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown, Mid 60s. Used
The first two albums by the Four Tops – heavenly harmonies, cut in the classic Motown style, featuring the sublime vocals of Levi Stubbs! Both albums are great – a mixture of hit singles by the group, plus other material done in their fantastic vocal mode – great all the way ... CD

Sweetest Peaches
Chess, 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An excellent 2LP set that features some of Etta James' great work for Chess – including some singles-only tracks that are darn hard to find in any format! The set does a good job of moving between the sweeter ballad material and some of Etta's more hard-driving soul numbers – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1979. Near Mint-
2 nice disco cuts from the duo of Elaine & Ellen – working here with some super-soulful arrangements from producer Donald Burnside, done in an extended funky club mode that reminds us of some of the best Prelude work of the time! The vocals are ok, but the real charm is in these backings ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Harmony, 1965. Very Good+
A strange little record that's seen life in more than a few releases over the years – this one on Columbia's Harmony subsidiary!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan/Island, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Grace's star was waning a bit by this point, but "Slave To The Rhythm" was one of her last big singles, not as compelling as earlier work with a more experimental approach, but recalling the wide washes of soul of some of her disco hits. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Buddah, Early 70s. Used
Classic work by Barbara Mason – easily some of her best recordings, cut for Buddah Records during the early 70s, with production work by soul luminaries Curtis Mayfield and Don Davis. Although Barbara began as a "little girl" singer, these sides show her maturing nicely – ... CD

Eat Out More Often
Kent, Early 70s. Used
Classic stuff – Rudy's first album, and a fitting launch to his famous career of party records and live club performances! The cover's got Rudy in front of a nude black model, laying back on the couch, and encouraging him to do the thing that's implied by the title – but the record ... CD

Unity – Sing It Shout It
Kimsha/Boom Shot, 1976. Used
A mindblower – and the kind of record we only come across once in a blue moon! Tony Aiken & Future 2000 were an obscure mid 70s group from New York – all players skilled in the burgeoning club scene of the time, but who also had their roots in Caribbean music – coming ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1980. Used
A great later production by Norman Whitfield – and one that almost returns to the simpler harmony soul of 60s Motown! Masterpiece have a style that's much more fragile and sweet than other groups on the Whitfield label – which was mostly dedicated to fuller and dancefloor soul. The ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown, 1972. Used
A pivotal album from Stevie Wonder – one of his first really heady records, and a tremendous little set from start to finish! The Wonder heard here is light years from the simple pop of the early days – really stretching out both as a songwriter and musician – coming up with a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Enterprise/Stax (Germany), 1970. Used
One of Isaac Hayes early 70s classics for Stax Records – a perfectly conceived masterpiece of baroque soul that builds and builds as the set goes on! Ike heads up the instrumentation on electric piano, vibes, and plenty of percussion – but he's also getting strong support here from the ... CD

Brunswick/Hot, 1976. Used
A 70s indie club classic – and the only album we've ever seen from Maryann Farra & Satin Soul! The group have a sound that's equal parts Brunswick Chicago soul and New York early disco groove – a combination that's brought out even more by the production talents of disco maestro ... CD

Fantasy, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic jazz funk by one of the best bands in the genre!

Funky Nassau
Alston, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of!

Roy Ayers Ubiquity
Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – and one of the rarest!

Motown/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
A really unusual album from the young Stephanie Mills – not only because it captures the singer at a wonderful early point in her career, when she was still open to a rich range of expression – but also because the whole thing was written and produced by the team of Burt Bacharach and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Rose Royce in perfect hit mode – blending older styles of harmony soul and rolling funk with some of the late 70s better advances in production. Norman Whitfield's really pushing himself here, and if he only did one thing on this planet, we'd give him a big award for his wonderful work on ... CD

Long Stroke
Cotillion/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
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! Thompson plays organ and arp on the record, and gives many tracks a nice heavy funk sound that's similar to his and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1973. New Copy
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Preacher Man
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Heavy soul from the early 70s version of The Impressions – put together with all the same depth as Curtis Mayfield's work of the time! This time around, Rich Tufo is at the helm on production and arrangements – but he continues to wave the Curtom flag high with some wonderfully put-toge ... CD
