I Hope We Get To Love In Time (with bonus tracks)
ABC/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
The first solo album from the team of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr – and a set that's arguably even more soulful than their work together in The 5th Dimension! The pair are lucky to have Groovesville soul maestro Don Davis at the helm – helping them hit a more mature, more ... 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
Bad For Me
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's standout sets as a soul singer in the 70s – a mode that's quite different than the sound of Bridgewater you may know from her mostly-jazz career – but one that gets plenty of sharp help from the great George Duke! Duke produced the set – and really ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Posh
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy
Nothing posh about this one – as the album's an all-out, all-access affair – a great way for anyone to get into the grooves of the mighty Patrice Rushen! Patrice is at the height of her powers here – equally magic on keyboards and vocals, and coming up with groove after groove in ... 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
One Eye Open (plus bonus tracks)
Dynamo/Fever Dream, 1969/1972. New Copy
An excellent bit of party funk – and a real precursor to musical party records of the 70s! Harmon Bethea is the "Mask Man", and he's working here with his Agents – a very popular live act at the time, with a mixture of raunchy grooves and blue humor, ala Doug Clark & The ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Early/Fever Dream, 1986. New Copy
The legendary mid 80s record by Marvin Sease, later to be slightly altered and re-released as his self-titled major label debut – but the version on the Early label has always been rare! Sease has roots in southern soul and gospel, but he's better remembered in some circles for going dirty, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I Want You
EMI/Fever Dream, 1979. New Copy
Later work from soul pioneer Wilson Pickett – working at EMI here, and in an updated style – on a record that would be better remembered, if not for the trailblazing importance of Pickett's earlier career. Having previously helped define raw southern soul and deliver it to the masses, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Success/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
A smash hit from Silver Convention – thanks to the dark pop disco hit "Get Up & Boogie", the leadoff tune on this surprisingly strong set! The strength of the album really comes from the masterful blend of strings, beats, and piano from arranger/producer/keyboardist Silvester ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlanta/FTG, 1986. New Copy
Mid 80s funky soul from Cashflow – a rare one cut for the Atlanta label, and produced by Larry Blackmon – a group R&B effort that seamlessly combines the club ready soul, funk, 80s rap influences and otherwise tightly thumping grooves Blackmon worked with at the time! Cashflow had ... 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
Capitol/FTG, Early 80s. New Copy
A sublime double-header – both rare albums from Perry & Sanlin, together on one CD! First up is For Those Who Love – the first Capitol effort from Phil Perry & Kevin Sanlin – two excellent harmony soul singers who were part of the legendary Montclairs who recorded for ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor/Universal, 2014. New Copy 5CD
A treasure trove of classic James Brown – with the Live At The Apollo (1962), Sex Machine and Revolution Of The Mind albums, plus the benchmark In The Jungle Groove compilation and the appropriately-titled 70s Funk Classics – together in a 5CD box set! Live At The Apollo is a landmark ... 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
All In The Soul
Reynolds/Undercover Brother, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An obscure west coast soul set from Quinn Harris – a well-titled "mastermind" with a great ear for a gritty groove! The set's got a really unique sort of feel – not just straight funk, but not straight soul either – kind of a hip blend of modes that often includes some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Party Time
Jean, 1974. Very Good+
A classic underground funk set from the 70s – and a record that definitely lives up to the party time promised in the title! The group have a really festive approach to funk – still as hard-hitting and sharp-edged as other indie contemporaries – but willing to open up and push ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hold Me
Atlantic, 1985. Very Good
No description available. LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mobile Fidelity, 1982. Near Mint-

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Scepter, 1960. Good
The first album in The Shirelles mighty run for Scepter Records – and a great set that really set new standards for girl soul in the 60s! Although some of the cuts crossed over bit, the whole album's got a heartbreaking sense of soul that goes way beyond familiar oldies – a beautiful ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nu Groove, 1991. Very Good-
If you ask us, house music doesn't get much better than this. Super spare, jazzy underground house, by one of the lost talents of the NJ scene. To many, this is just an obscure release by Rheji Burrell of the Burrell brothers but to us, this single's a rare treat, with a raw but still smooth ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor (Germany), 1970. Very Good+
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Turning Point
Generation, Mid 70s. Good
Billed as "The Singing Album" – and a whole new chapter in the career of Rudy Ray Moore! The set definitely features Rudy on vocals, but the instrumentation's just as important too – some nice funky undercurrents and rootsy soul bits, all arranged and conducted by Arthur ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Solar, 1983. Used
A popping party classic from the 1980s – filled with plenty of catchy electro numbers, all served up in a sublime blend of pop and soul! The Calloway brothers are at the height of their powers here – and the album strikes a perfect balance between mainstream soul and percolated ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I'm A Loser
Canyon, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A great collection of deep soul work by singer Doris Duke – one of the lesser-remembered talents from her day, but an emotive diva who could sing with the best from Memphis or Muscle Shoals. The set features 12 tracks produced by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Willams (who also arranged and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1984. Used
An album that crossed over for Deniece in a big way – and it's a great one, with crisp, lean pop soul production that's as gratifying as any of the era – with a few ballads that are totally top notch, too! This is definitely the best of her more pop oriented records, with hooks galore ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used
Here's the reason why we love reissue CDs – because they offer an incredible look at groups that have nearly been forgotten in the pages of music history! The Diplomats were an east coast group who never cracked the top of the charts, but who made some excellent work during the 60s – a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Demon (UK), Mid 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD
The second half of Ann Peebles' classic years for Hi Records – tunes that are less well-known than her earlier hits, but equally great overall, with a sweet mellow approach to southern soul that virtually set the tone for all other female singers of the genre! The 2CD set brings together ... CD

No description available. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fats Is Back
Bullseye Blues, 1968. Used
Fats is back, and sounding pretty darn great – working here with rootsy production from Richard Perry, who's got a great ear for all of Domino's older strengths, yet also manages to update his sound a bit for the late 60s! The record's got a really romping groove – lots of New Orleans ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stax/Enterprise, 1972/1974. Used
2 early 70s sessions from Billy Eckstine – both recorded for Stax Records! First up is Senior Soul – a well-titled set not only given Billy's age, but also because of the surprisingly soulful undercurrent to the record – an extension into the genre even greater than Eckstine's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Back
Track Record/Cleopatra, 1988. New Copy
Ohio Players bounce back for this late 80s album – coming across with a leaner groove than before, and a style that's right up there with the best mainstream funk of the time! Most instrumentation is electric – plenty of beats and keyboards here – but the group still seem to hang ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soulful Proclamation
Jazzman (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
Ultra-hip funk from Oklahoma's Messengers Incorporated – a group who come across with a sound that's every bit as righteous and heavy as you might guess from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on bass, guitar, and organ – and topped with some great saxophone work too – all in a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bubble Gum
Rite Track/Solaris, 1975. New Copy
CD...$12.99 15.98 (LP)
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Back To The World
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
It's All About Love
Calla/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A great step forward for The Persuaders – a set that has the group losing some of the more fragile, more earthy modes of their previous records – and moving into some soaring territory to match their best competition at the time! There's a sweet Philly vibe to the whole thing – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Two Of Us (with bonus tracks)
Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy
A massive hit for the duo of Calvin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples – and for good reason too! The set's equally well-balanced between upbeat, keyboard-heavy groovers and key mellower tracks – just the kind of rounded record we might expect from Ashford & Simpson at their late 70s best ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
In Full Bloom
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A big one for Norman Whitfield – who found in Rose Royce what he'd been lacking for years – a hit group ready to handle a number of styles, all well, and all with an adventurous style that would break them past the legions of lackluster funky soul groups of the late 70s. The record ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Love Injection
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy
Trussel may have cut this one and only album at the end of the 70s – but they've got a strength that's kept them going for years – despite a lack of success at the time! The record's a sweet modern soul stunner – a record that picks up a sweet jazzy groove that's augmented with ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Glades/Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A strange but great chapter of The Blue Notes – working here without Harold Melvin or Teddy Pendergrass, but still sounding pretty great on their own! This version of The Blue Notes is a male quartet – not the Melvin group with Sharon Paige who were recording for ABC – and they ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Twist Party At The Roundtable
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Although he's best known by our ears for his 70s funk masterpiece Investigation No 1, back in the 60s Carl Holmes was working with a groovy combo called The Commanders – and cut this hard-wailing album of soul tracks for Atlantic! The set's got "twist" in the title, which might ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
So Soon We Change
Warner (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Warm and wonderful soul from David Ruffin – key proof that the singer could keep on going strong, long after his earlier fame at Motown! The record's got a new sense of sophistication that really breaks David into new territory – a style that's nicely different than the backings Ruffin ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Check Out Your Mind
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – ... CD
