Eddie Kendricks
Tamla (Japan), 1973. New Copy

Foxy Brown
Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy
CD (LP)
A monster! Foxy Brown is Willie Hutch's magnificent soundtrack for Foxy Brown – a Pam Grier blacksploitation film from the early 70s – and it's pure genius all the way through, a record filled with some of the best funky soundtrack cuts of the era! Willie's got a real Curtis Mayfield ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Marvin Gaye gets some fantastic help here from Norman Whitfield – whose production gives the record a much more righteous sound than some of Gaye's sweeter soul of the 60s – a really heavy undercurrent that strongly hints at modes to come! The vibe here isn't as fuzzed-out as on some ... CD

Tyrone Davis the mellow master – still going strong into the 80s! The album's an overlooked gem from Tyrone's years at Columbia Records – a time when he was changing up his style a bit, and really finding a great new groove – a way of getting past some of the overdone modes of ... CD

Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A tremendous solo act from GC Cameron – a singer who first rose to fame in The Spinners, but who really sounds wonderful on his own! GC's moved away from The Spinners here – into a wide range of styles that show him ready to take on most of the rest of the competition! He's working ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Groovy late 60s work from Diana Ross & The Supremes – a record that has them breaking the Motown mold a bit, and hooking up with a nice variety of modder soul and pop modes! Tracks on the set include a few Motown-penned numbers, but the trio also tackle hits like "Everyday ... CD

Technodelic (Dutch pressing)
Alfa (Japan), 1981. Very Good+
We're not certain where this falls in the order of YMO Japanese releases, but it's definitely a bit after their stunning US debut, and we're pretty certain never released outside Japan. A bit more stripped down, but still amazing electro pop from some of the true originators of the genre. 10 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Color Me Country
Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy
CD...$12.99 13.98 (CD)
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes ... CD

Shockwave
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1972. Used
The only album we've ever seen from The Blossoms – a trio of female singers who push their music into much hipper territory for the 70s! The album's got a depth that's different than 60s girl group soul – a way of pushing the girl trio format with some touches from gospel, rock, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD
A great range of work from the legendary Loleatta Holloway – a singer who started out in southern soul, then brought a deep soul style to the disco dancefloor – where she was easily one of the most righteous vocalists of the time! The package does a great job of showing Loleatta at all ... CD

Leon Ware (1972)
United Artists/Solaris, 1972. Used
Sublime work from Leon Ware – the mellow soul master who's one of our favorite talents of the 70s! This album is Leon's first – recorded years before he did his records for Motown and Elektra – and it's done with a less polished sound that's a striking contrast to some of his ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Savage!
Ace (UK), 1973. New Copy
One of the greatest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – and one of the rarest too! The album's a crowning achievement for the mighty Don Julian – an artist who's best known for his earlier LA soul with The Larks, but who steps out here with a hip, hard-grooving sound that's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy
A different groove than usual from the mighty Snowboy – not the Latin you may know from his own records, or the funk you'll find on his other compilations – but instead a smoking batch of 60s soul, with a really wonderful batch of well-chosen cuts throughout! The album's a counterpart ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Deep deep work from an under-tapped reservoir of soul – the legendary Sounds Of Memphis label – a key contemporary of Stax Records, but one with a huge amount of material that never got issued at the time! This excellent set corrects that fact, by bringing forth a batch of material ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A treasure trove of harmony soul gems – and a package that's overflowing with great numbers from a time when small group soul really sparkled in the funky 45 underground! Most of the cuts here have never appeared on CD before, and a handful are previously unreleased – and together, the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/FTG, 1982. New Copy
Diana Ross really finds a way to remake her groove here – a sweet new sound that fits her revamped look in the Andy Warhol image on the cover! Although Ross could sparkle strongly during the disco years, the best cuts here are some of the more midtempo moments – nicely spaced out in ... CD

RCA/FTG, 1981. New Copy
Diana Ross makes a big break with Motown for this debut set on RCA – a set that also has the singer making a nice stylistic break as well! The set's got Diana reinventing herself in so many different modes for the 80s – as Ross herself is sitting at the production helm for the record, ... CD

Bang/FTG, 1981/1982. New Copy
A massive double-header from Brick – two Columbia albums back to back on a single CD! First up is smoking Summer Heat from Brick – an 80s outing that furthers the tight tight groove they started back in the 70s! Given that Brick were one of the groups who really set the sound for the ... CD

Columbia/FTG, 1983. New Copy 2 CDs

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MCB
Epic/FTG, 1983. New Copy
Super-tight funk from MCB – a group with a former Cameo pedigree, bumping out here into the lean, mean, sound of early 80s soul! The trio features Aaron Mills (the M), TC Campbell (the C), and Jeryl Bright (the B) – all working in that great stripped-down mode you'll find on some of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.95
A rare 70s soul set from Carol Woods – a singer who's done a fair bit of work on the musical stage, but who has plenty to offer in this obscure debut album! The record was mostly cut in New York, yet only issued in the UK – which is part of the reason for its obscurity – and the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ... CD

There It Is
Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Raw power and righteous energy from James Brown – a set that still has all the best funk elements of his longer-form albums of the time, but which also packs an even stronger political message too! The vibe of the record is clear from the image on the cover – the most powerful since ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Secret Omen
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy
A sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Priced To Sell
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A great funky combo, working here with legendary producer David Axelrod – who helps them hit some even deeper grooves than before! Funk Inc are perfect at the core – a stunning mix of Hammond, guitar, and heady rhythms – but Axelrod also brings in a new sense of space and timing ... CD
