We run the gamut from deep soul to Northern, Chicago steppers to house, Motown to Malaco -- and everything in between!


RCA/Mushroom (Australia), 1974. New Copy
One of the funkiest, most soulful albums to come from Australia in the 70s – and the crowning achievement of singer Renee Geyer! Renee's got a style that makes her a blue-eyed equivalent of Chaka Khan during her years with Rufus – and the band here shares a very similar style, with an ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul ... CD
Sussex/Sony, Early 70s. Used
Amazing sounds from the legendary Rodriguez – the brilliant 70s singer who had a groove that was equal parts soul, funk, rock, and folk – and an overall approach that was pretty darn unique! Most numbers here have some acoustic guitar over slightly funky rhythms – perfectly ... CD
Universal/Motown, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover)
Two previously unreleased gems from Rick James! "You & I" is a classic from Rick, but presented here in a John Morales mix that runs for almost 10 minutes long – and which really takes the track to the clubs! The flip features a live duet with Teena Marie on "Fire & ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Materiali Sonori/Medical, 1980s. New Copy
Rare material from the legendary Alexander Robotnick – tracks from mid 80s European singles, plus a few from his own archives as well! Robotnick's got an approach to his work that borrows from earlier Kraftwerk experiments, but fuses the electronics with a much more dancefloor-driven groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Sublime sounds from Clarence Carter – wonderful work from his singles for Fame Records – a wealth of great music from a time when Carter was really coming into his own! Clarence was great right from the start, but here you can really hear him finding his own voice – that all-knowi ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, 1974. New Copy
An amazing musical discovery – the lost second album from 24 Carat Black – recorded right after the band's legendary debut for Stax Records, but unissued for over 30 years! All the righteous styles of the group's famous Ghetto Misfortune's Wealth classic are fully in place here – ... CD
What Color Is Love
Cadet, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier! Terry's rich mellow voice is mixed with superb arrangements from the Cadet studio team, with Charles Stepney at the head, and the result is completely sublime. The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Strawberry Soul
Klimt, Early 70s. Sealed (reissue)
One of those lost funk classics that you'll never find in the original!

LP, Vinyl record album
Earth Angel (UK), 1986. Near Mint- Gatefold
LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 2012. New Copy
The best records in years – maybe decades – from the legendary Dr John – and a set that stands up strongly next to the messed-up Crescent City vibe of his 70s classics! Big thanks are due to Black Keys' guitarist Dan Auerbach – who produced and supervised the whole ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charly R&B (UK), 1950s/1985. Near Mint-
One of the greatest R&B vocal groups of the 50s, featuring singer Lowman Pauling, who was a huge influence on James Brown! The tracks all have a great hard-edged sound, with little of the schmaltz that can sometimes date these songs a bit too much. The material is very rootsy soul stuff ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dedicated To You
King, 1957. Near Mint-
A super record from the 5 Royales – the kind of hard-edged classic that makes their King albums always worth seeking out – especially as they're great all the way through, without any filler at all! The vocals are amazing – thanks to the lead talents of the legendary Loman ... LP, Vinyl record album
Breakin' Up The House
Charly (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic (Japan), Early 50s. Very Good+
A fine little collection of doo wops, despite the misspelling of the title, all rare Atlantic sides from the fifties, by groups whose individual singles trade for crazy money, collected for release as this album in Japan in the 80s. Includes two tracks by the Diamonds (the black group, not the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charly (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint-
A great collection of the El Dorados' groundbreaking vocal group work for Vee Jay – one that focuses on their harder-grooving, more uptempo tracks! The group were a key force in empowering the vocal group sound with a harder edge and deeper groove – really setting the scene for 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Real Thing
Dr Horse, 1950s. Near Mint-
A great collection of hard to get numbers from one of the greatest R&B vocal groups of the 50s, featuring singer Lowman Pauling, who was a huge influence on James Brown!

12-inch, Vinyl record
Nothing Can Stop Us
Arista/Rush, 1989. Near Mint-
Equal parts soul and hip hop – and a record that might be more New Jack than anything else, if it wasn't for production by Davy D and Jam Master Jay! The vocals are a bit poppy and silly at times, but the overall groove isn't that bad, especially considering other efforts like this of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy
After lending his incredible soul vocals to Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes for some of their classic recordings, Teddy Pendergrass struck out on his own as a solo act – and the rest is history! Teddy's incredible vocals and sexy style made many a fine record for Philly International ... CD
Patrice
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. Used
A sweeeeeet groover by Patrice Rushen – her first album for Elektra, and a stunning blend of funky jazz and soul! The record really has Patrice stepping out from her earlier years at Prestige – working in some surprisingly great vocals next to tight lines on Fender Rhodes, synth, and ... CD

Philadelphia International/CBS, Mid 70s. Used
CD
Giant, 1992. Used
CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used
Sublimely satisfying work from Ashford & Simpson – a stone killer from the height of their late 70s glory days on Warner Brothers! The pair are working together wonderfully at this point – wrapped up in that blend of upbeat soul and righteous undercurrents that made them a real cut ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1972. Used
The group's best album! Why? It's produced by Donnie Hathaway, has him playing keyboards, and it features an excellent cover of his classic "Valdez In The Country", recorded before Donny's version – but with a very similar electric vibe. The record's got a sweet jazzy soul groove ... CD
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
The Soul Children were a wonderful Memphis vocal group – with a two parts female/two parts male vocal style that just sounded incredible. All the members of the group were great singers, hand-picked by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, and the overall sound was a mixture of rootsy southern soul, ... CD
