SAR/Abkco, 1964. New Copy
The first-ever release of this full album of material by LC Cooke – the younger brother of the late Sam Cooke, but a hell of a singer in his own right! LC issued a few labels for Sam's SAR label in the early 60s, but this full set never saw the light of day – as it was scrapped after ... CD

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

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

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

What's On Your Mind?
Street Jam Groove, 2014. New Copy
Surprisingly wonderful work from Aziza Miller – an artist you may know as the great Linda Williams, who cut the fantastic City Living album for Arista in the 70s! Aziza's got a groove that's more early 80s than you'd guess from the contemporary date of the record – a vibe that really ... CD

Modern/Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy 2CD
Rare early 50s R&B from the vaults of RPM – filled with rare sides by a wide variety of legends and lesser-knowns alike – with both larger scale group recordings, and comparably stripped down gems. One thing that we love about this set is the somewhat overlooked forays into R&B ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Not just bluesin', but layin' the bedrock foundation for some of the greatest southern soul, funk and swamp rock to come! Rough & Tough is the most revelatory compilation in Ace's By The Bayou series to date – digging deep into the rare recordings of 2 of south Louisiana's pivotal ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Victor (Japan), 1970s. New Copy
A really fresh look at The Stylistics – a set that includes some of their key harmony soul classics, but also mixes in some of their lesser-known gems from the 70s – all in the best spirit of the landmark Free Soul series! Some of the tracks here are mellower than you'll usually get ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ABC/FTG, 1977. New Copy
The warm, sweetly grooving Eloise album from Eloise Laws – a nice bit of smoothly produced LA soul, with arrangements by Gene Page, and production by Linda Creed and Jerry Goldstein. Eloise's vocals are really wonderful here, exuding warmth something of relaxed approach to her singing that ... 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

Straight From The Heart
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy
A huge album for Patrice Rushen – thanks largely to the track "Forget Me Nots", which is a perfect blend of jazz and soul, in that warm sweet style she was forging after her early days as more of a fusion artist. The rest of the album's every bit as great – and the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was really coming into her own! Read My Lips has Melba working nicely with some tight Capitol soul backings – often a bit heavy on the beats, but in a way that guides the tunes strongly from the bottom, and lets Melba's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/FTG, 1982. New Copy
An early 80s classic from Melba Moore – best known for one of her biggest hits, "Love's Comin' At Ya", an enduring number that's got an irresistible groove! Like many of Melba's other albums, this one does a wonderful job of delivering radio-friendly pop soul and still hitting us ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/FTG, 1981. New Copy
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – with some bubbling club soul grooves carried over from the 70s, plus spacier and funkier touches – largely produced by McFadden & Whitehead and featuring Kashif on moog bass! Given the production style here and the release date, we get the ... CD

I Got More Soul
Omnivore, 2014. New Copy
Southern soul veteran Bobby Patterson, delivering what sounds like a lost early 70s classic on Stax or any number of smaller, yet esteemed southern soul labels – but it's actually his first new recordings in decade or so – and it comes courtesy of the ever-reliable Omnivore label! ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Your Funny Moods
DC International, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Sublime harmony soul – and one of THE east coast classics of the early 70s! Skip and group were one of the best vocal groups working on their scene at the time – with a style that's incredibly well crafted, yet also fragile enough to really capture the emotions of the tunes. This ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
A&M (Japan), 1973. Used
Sublime mainstream pop from Gino Vannelli – recorded in a space between soul, rock, and adult contemporary – all as a perfect demonstration of the evolution of the A&M sound in the 70s! Herb Alpert put the record together with Gino and his brother – and the style here is ... CD

Black Market (UK), 1989. Very Good Gatefold
A sort of a lost Larry Heard record, from the late 80s, when he was briefly basking in the spotlight in England and Europe. The set here has a stripped down sound, with Fingers' warm keys over nice bubbling mid tempo rhythm tracks, most with a laid back clubby approach, but others with a very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Come Go With Me
Uptown, Late 60s. Very Good+
Very nice lost Uptown soul album, with nice arrangements by Lincoln Mayorga, and some very raw vocals from Gloria. We like this one much better than her later work, and it's got a good soulful groove, mixed with some sensitive vocal interpretation. Titles include "Come Go With Me", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bingo Fiesta
Vogue (Canada), 1977. Very Good+
Black Soul have a style that takes off from the funky modes of other combos hitting the Parisian scene at the time – such as Ice or Black Blood, or the work of Manu Dibango – but their groove also shows a bit more influence of the disco era as well, with plenty of fast rhythms and quick- ...

De-Lite, 1981. Very Good+
"Get Down On It" was a huge crossover hit for the group – but a pretty tasty dancefloor single as well! Deodato's producing track here – and it's got a nicely compressed sound that pops along the bassline and catchy hook wonderfully! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tabu (UK), 1984. Sealed (reissue)
Nothing Fragile here – as Cherrelle comes across with plenty of power on this debut LP – thanks to sharp production from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on some of the best cuts, and an overall groove that's right on the best side of early 80s soul! The Jam/Lewis tracks are heavy on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alabama Love Man
Rabbit Factory, 2012. Near Mint-
The return of a legend – or maybe more accurately, the first time this legend's ever really gotten his due! Ralph Jackson's been working in the Alabama soul underground for decades – yet this smoking album may well be the first time he's ever really gotten out front, and able to do his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweetback/Confusion
Luv N' Haight, 1975. Very Good+
A long out of print 12" single that was one of the first Luv N Haight reissues – a pair of funky guitar groovers lifted from the rare Sweetback album by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Both cuts are great, almost better than Jones' work for Prestige – and the sonic quality of the single ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Niteflyte (1981)
Ariola, 1981. Very Good+
Great jazzy soul from Niteflyte – their second album, and even harder to find than the first! The album's got a lean, groovy feel that's totally great – a bit like some of the mainstream work of the time, but a bit hipper overall in the rhythms, with a quality that's often a fair bit ...

Love Is Stronger
RCA, 1971. Very Good
Love, Peace, & Happiness were one of the groups circulating around Harvy Fuqua's New Birth/Nite-Liters assemblage in the early 70's. On this early LP, they sing with a beautiful hard soul sound, with great arrangements by Riley Hampton. Some of the tracks have a politically conscious feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Now Again/Stones Throw, Early 70s. Near Mint- (reissue)
Wicked funk from the Detroit Sex Machine – presented here in new edits that take the tunes even farther than the originals! All 3 tracks on the single have a fiercely appealing sound that's a blend of bad-stepping bass, tight snapping drums, and JBs-sharp horn work to cook the whole thing up! ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1972. Very Good-
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album

My Music
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1978. Used
One of our favorite 70s soul records ever – and a totally unique set as well! To our ears, Samuel Jonathan Johnson belongs in the company of Roy Ayers, Norman Connors, and other spiritual soul heavyweights – even though he only ever cut this one album for Columbia Records back in 1978! ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CBS/FTG, 1983. Used
An even leaner groove than usual for Billy Griffin – a set that makes great use of 80s keyboards and basslines, which turn out to be a great fit for Griffin's wonderful voice! Billy's got this sharp, uncluttered style of singing – a mode first forged as the lead for The Miracles, then ... CD

Deep Beats (UK), Early 80s/1996. Used
"Sisters Of Rap" is probably a correct description – as Sequence can't really be called pure hip hop, but as members of the Sugar Hill family, they definitely fall in the same zone, and have definite old school groove to their material. This 12 track CD compiles lots of early ... CD

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1975. Used
The soaring debut of one of the greatest groups of the disco era – and one that would go onto be the sound of Salsoul Records too! The large mostly-instrumental ensemble is headed up by Vince Montana – who brings plenty of Philly disco touches into play with the group's wonderful blend ... CD
