Brent/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Superb soul, indeed – a heady batch of work from the important Brent label in the 60s – including a fair bit of previously unissued tunes! Brent was a bit different than some of the 60s indie soul labels – in that they didn't just pull from their local scene, but culled material ... CD

Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Southern soul galore – a wonderful range of tracks that are done in that best deep soul mode that borrowed heavily from country music – but also really transformed things to fit their own righteous needs! Make no mistake, the collection is all soul music all the way through – but ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy
Seminal sounds from the New Orleans scene of the 60s – all great soul tracks recorded in the studios of Cosimo Matassa – as important a force in the Crescent City sound as Allen Toussaint at the time! The grooves here are plenty deep – building off New Orleans modes from the ... 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

BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

FTG, 1988. New Copy 2CD
Maybe the strongest record ever from Pia Zadora – at least from a soul music perspective – thanks to strong studio help from the team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis! The famous pair worked with Pia on all the tracks – both as writers and producers – and their trademark groove ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1965/Late 60s. Used
A lost album by Diana Ross & The Supremes – recorded in the 60s, but shelved until now – and presented here in a wonderful package that also includes a whopping amount of extra bonus tracks! The album was an unusual one for the group – a set of standards and older numbers ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chess/Hip-O Select, 1960s. Used 4 CDs
The complete Chuck Berry recordings for Chess in the first half of the 60s – incredible stuff all the way through, richer, and more varied stylistically than his earlier proto rock/punchy rhythm & blues of the mid-to-late 50s – more than 100 tracks on 4CDs in this beautifully ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nightbirds
Epic, 1974. Used
A 70s crossover classic, and the album the put LaBelle over the top! The mighty Allen Toussaint is at the helm for this first Epic album to feature the trio of Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – and he really helps the group find an amazing new sound after their somewhat rougher, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stax (UK), 1971. Very Good+ (reissue)
One of the most fantastic soundtracks of the 70's – and of all time! For this, his masterpiece film, Melvin Van Peebles composed a non-stop collage of crazy sounds and funky jams, played by him and a very young Earth, Wind, & Fire, and pasted together in a pastiche of music, dialogue, ...

Battle Of The Groups

Segments Of Time
Sussex, 1972. Very Good+
Segments Of Time were apparently a Detroit soul combo – but they've got a righteous heavy sound that's more like some of the slightly-political east coast groups from the same generation, like True Reflection or The Modulations. The band's got a strong vocal style – with a compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown, 1997. Near Mint-
From the second LP, with nice mellow groove that has just enough energy for an almost mid tempo steppers's feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
It Hurts So Good
Spring/Southbound, 1973. Used
An excellent early album from Millie Jackson – recorded in a southern soul style in New York and Muscle Shoals, but a lot hipper than most of the rest of the female soul that was coming out of the south at the time. For one thing, Millie was a bad mamma singer – rapping hard and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Epic/Philadelphia International (UK), 1977. Used
The second collaboration between the Jacksons and the Gamble & Huff production team for Philly International – and a nice little sleeper that we like more and more over the years! Like the preceding album from the team, the pairing's a great one – and the Jacksons' pop soul ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sweet Soul Music
Atco (Germany), 1967. Used
One of the all-time soul classics from Atlantic – the fantastic debut of singer Arthur Conley, introduced as a protege of Otis Redding, who also produced the record! The sound is similar to Otis' own work, but often a fair bit rawer – and Redding works here with both Jim Stewart of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dancing On The Ceiling
Motown, 1986. Used
Lionel's third album for Motown – one in a string of massive hits that forever changed the sound of 80s soul! The smooth mellow lover is still firmly in place – taking a few chances on the set, but still sounding best on the romantic numbers. Titles include "Love Will Conquer ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lionel Richie
Motown, 1982. Sealed
Lionel's first solo album after leaving the Commodores – and a solid bit of mellow soul that forever merged the genres of soul music and adult contemporary! Titles include "Serves You Right", "My Love", "Tell Me", "You Are", "Truly", "Jus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roots
Curtom/Charly (UK), Early 70s. Used
Classic early Curtis! These first few solo albums of his are landmarks, not only of Chicago soul, but of 70's soul in general. There's a perfect mix of heartbreaking vocals, political messages, and tight funky grooves. Includes the tracks "We Got to Have Peace", "Underground" ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Specialty, 1957. Used
A landmark album of hard-rocking soul – and a record that broke open both genres for a generations to come! The set's about as classic as you can get for Little Richard – filled with killer numbers that jump around boldly in some heavy New Orleans piano-led grooves – all topped ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Aladdin/Dinner Music
Cadet/Raven, 1968/1969. Used
2 lost gems by Rotary Connection – the celestial Chicago group that featured the voice of a young Minnie Riperton, and production by the god-like Charles Stepney! Both albums are completely unique – a mad blend of soul, rock, jazz, and lots of stunning studio touches. Tight rhythms ... CD

Stuff
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1976. Used
Tight funky fusion from Stuff – the stellar debut by the soul jazz supergroup – filled with groovy electric keys, rubbery basslines and tightly vamping guitar! The sound is warm and groovy throughout – sophisticated funk on some tunes, and slightly looser and soulful on others ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Geffen, 1983. Used
Titles include "Knocked Down Made Small", "Bow Wow Wow Wow", "Man Vs The Empire Brain Building", "Zaz Turned Blue", and "Smile". CD

Curtom/Sequel (UK), 1999. Used 2CD
2 legendary Leroy Hutson albums in one CD package! Hutson was the undisputed master of sweet soul in Chicago during the 70s, and these 2 albums, originally issued by Curtom, capture him at his warm mellow best. The records have a groove that recalls Marvin Gaye's best mid 70s moments, a jazziness ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
Best Of The Buddah Years
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

To Be Continued
Enterprise/Stax, 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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Music Of My Mind
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
Leon Ware (1982)
Elektra (Germany), 1982. Used
Seminal modern soul from the great Leon Ware – an artist who had a great influence on the sound of mellow Motown in the 70s, but who's sounding even better here in an early 80s California groove! Leon's smooth, sophisticated, and very much his own man on the set – unabashedly upfront ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Complete Atco Recordings
Atco/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Beautiful soul vocals from Dee Dee Warwick – the entirety of her work for Atco – all of it recorded between 1970 and 1972! Dee Dee had a pretty successful run as a solo singer for Mercury before moving to Atco, to say nothing of her pedigree as a session singer over the years, hitting ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor/Universal, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy
A set put together as the soundtrack for the James Brown bio-pic – but one that features mostly original recordings by The Godfather himself, and a few older cuts altered a bit for the film! The groove runs from early 60s soul to early 70s funk – and there's a fair bit of live tracks, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown/FTG, 1986. New Copy
Stacy Lattisaw's first album for Motown – the nicely grooving Take Me All The Way from 1986 – featuring production from some of the biggest and brightest modern soul producers in the game at the time, and most importantly, lovely vocals from Stacy! There's a cohesive modern vibe all ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hot Buttered Soul/Stax (UK), 1975. New Copy
Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders! Everybody Wanna Live On may very well be the best album ever by this sweet southern vocal group – produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, who'd always had a big hand in the group's sound. The record's got a style that reminds us of mid 70s ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy
A nice mid 80s groover from Paul Laurence for Capitol – whose biggest successes, arguably, were in his services as a songwriter and producer for other artists – making a pretty great case for his own work as a headline act on Haven't You Heard! May may not have heard it, actually, but ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Nassau
Alston, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roy Ayers Ubiquity
Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – and one of the rarest! The record is right in the same vein as Roy's groundbreaking He's Coming LP – a righteous mix of soul jazz, subtle funk, and some of the cosmic wisdom that Roy was spreading among the jazz funk underground – ...
