One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy
An unassuming cover, but a set that's got a really colorful batch of rare Chicago soul – including a number of never-issued tracks from the legendary One-Der-Ful Records! The label was one of the true indie greats in Chicago back in the 60s – almost as much a force for local soul as ... CD

Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1973. New Copy
A pair of funky classics – back to back on a single CD! Composite Truth is one of the greatest records ever from Mandrill – a set that has the group tightening things up and getting even more funky than on their first few records, but with a vibe that's still nicely loose and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner/Expansion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy
Two of the only solo records ever cut by Chicago soul legend Eugene Record – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Eugene Record – a great solo moment from Eugene – the singer who'd rose to fame with The Chi-Lites, and who still sounds pretty darn great here on his own! ... CD

Plectrumelectrum
Warner, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
One of a pair of Prince records released on the same day – and this one that finds him in a lean, hard-hitting funk rock mode that we always love from him – and deservedly sharing credit with his 3rdeyegirl group. It's honestly a lot of fun to hear Prince having this much fun himself, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Magic Fly
United Artists/Nang (UK), 1977. New Copy
Legendary cosmic disco from Space – a group who really live up to their name with a trippy use of electronics and keyboards over clubby rhythms! The album's a landmark from the time when previous prog ideals were finding a great new space in the discos – and although a few cuts here ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The more stylistically sprawling of the 2 albums Prince released upon returning to Warner Brothers in 2014 – nicely recalling some of his better later 80s and early 90s material, post-Sign O The Times craft – but still moving forward, as opposed to reliving past glories! Art Official ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Booker T Set
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Later work from Booker T and crew – an album that always gets lost in the shuffle, but which also includes lots of great moments, and a bit more funk than in earlier years! The rhythm section's loosening up a bit on the set – led by the mighty Al Jackson, and working past that tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
First Minute Of A New Day
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy
Gil Scott Heron's first album for Arista – very much in the mellow soul jazz work of his legendary album on Strata East! The record features some wonderfully moody jazz backing that really marks a shift in Gil's style – never going too far over the top, but hitting a sweet groove that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
The debut album from Ronnie Dyson – presented here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The core of the set is the long-titled album – If You Let Me Make Love To You Why Can't I Touch You – a wonderful first album from Ronnie Dyson – a set that's mostly soul, but also ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lost Voice Of Soul
RPM (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Lost for too many years – and wonderful to this day! Timi Yuro's early 60s work is fantastic – and is part diva bluesy soul, ala Etta James or Lorez Alexandria, and part country soul, ala Ray Charles or Brook Benton. Her voice is incredible, with a clear tone, yet heartbreaking edge ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Step Into Our Life/Prime Time
Polydor/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy 2CD
Talk about a meeting of the minds – a pair of ultra-amazing classics from the team of Roy Ayers & Wayne Henderson – back to back in a single set! At the time of Step Into Our Life, Henderson & Ayers were probably the biggest names in the jazz funk business – both with a ... CD

Funky Delicacies, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A collection of ultra-rare material from the mighty Black Merda and affiliates – the legendary funk group who mixed in plenty of Hendrix-styled guitar to their grooves – resulting in sound that few other groups can touch! The "Psych Funk" title is very well put – given ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Delicacies, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Rare funk from the Detroit underground of the late 70s – a lost link between the legendary Stax group Black Nasty, and their later mainstream incarnation, the ADC Band! The work here is from the years between Black Nasty's 1973 debut and some of the bigger ADC records for Cotillion – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy
The notes claim that this one has a "Big Easy bounce" – and they're definitely not kidding! The set's a great batch of New Orleans funk – one of the many releases in the always-getting-better series from Funky Delicacies, and a long overdue look at this obscure heavy funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Beginnings
Soul Junction (UK), Early 80s. Near Mint-
Unreleased soul from Vince Broomfield – a singer and saxophone player with a warm and smooth style! The work here is all from private recordings of the late 80s and early 90s, and has a sound that echoes mainstream R&B of the period, but which is served up in a much more stripped-down ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Norton, Late 50s/1960s. Sealed
Norton Records takes over the excellent Golden Groups series – using the format as a great way to present their vocal soul treasures!

Livin' For Lovin'
Capitol, 1976. Near Mint-
The first US album by singer Jackie Lomax – a smooth AOR talent with an approach that's in that compressed LA mode of the mid 70s. Jackie's got a sound that might be more straight pop if it wasn't produced so well on this album – which has a mellow grooving sound that's somewhere in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mobile Suit Corporation (UK), 1982. Near Mint- (pic cover)
No description available. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nobody But You Babe
Tay-Ster, 1969. Near Mint-
Don't get this set mixed up with Clarence Reid's album of a similar name on Alston/Atco – as this rare date for the Tayster label is quite different – although it still shares the famous title track! Reid's in perfect rough-edged form here – almost more strongly southern soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1996. Sealed (pic cover)
The nicer of the 2 versions of this single, with smoother mixes than were available on the other promo version, and no wonder, as Frankie Knuckles and Stylus turn in the remixes.

Hi Records/Demon (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Good Times
De-Lite, Early 70s. Near Mint- (reissue)
Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work! The band is super-tight at this point, grooving along in a hard drum, heavy bass, wah wah guitar frenzy – and even the vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony Woman
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1970. New Copy
An amazing early album from Billy Paul – the start of a rich career of sophisticated soul, and a record that really put Paul on the map right away – making him one of the most soulful interpreters of song in the 70s! There's a mix of modes going on here that's a bit similar to the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
One of the greatest British funk albums of the 70s – if not all time! FBI may have an American reference in their name, but back in the day, they were the leading lights of the London soul scene – and one of the few groups who could blend together jazz, soul, and funk influences with ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Venture/Shout (UK), 1981. New Copy
One of the few albums ever cut as a lead act by Sandra Feva – a wonderful singer who worked behind Aretha Franklin for years, but who's a hell of a standout talent on her own! The set was arranged and produced by Tony Camillo, but it's got a much more laidback feel than some of Tony's other ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Portrait/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1985. New Copy
The Staple Singers in a direction none would have guessed a decade before – a half-pop, half-arty approach to the dancefloor – served up in a surprisingly nice batch of jaunty tunes! The approach here mixes electric rhythms with the deeper soul vocals of the group – often putting ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Calling
United Artists/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1980. New Copy
Sublime work from Noel Pointer – a set that sparkles equally from both his soul and jazz talents! The record's a perfect example of the way that key artists like Pointer were blending R&B and fusion at the end of the 70s – really perfecting earlier experiments of cats like Norman ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Spark/Shout (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy
Rare 70s work from the great Tommy Hunt – a singer who's best known for his Scepter Records solo work of the 60s, or his early days in The Flamingos – but who steps out here with a completely different groove! The material here was cut at a time when Hunt was gaining new fame on the UK ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy
Majestic Motown from the 70s – an almost-overlooked record, but a surprisingly sophisticated gem that's well worth discovering again! The album's definitely soul at the core, but embraces so many other rich styles too – and at points, almost feels like some of the most ambitious ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
The second album from Kleeer – and a record that really has the group solidifying their sound – compressing keyboards, guitar, and grooves together in a sublimely boogie-heavy mode! Kleeer were really at the forefront of the coming 80s groove scene – and Woody Cunningham and the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Neptune/Big Break (UK), 1970. New Copy
Fantastic early O'Jays! The album's the first to feature the group meeting up with the Gamble/Huff team – a significant shift from their earlier work on Imperial, with a style that still retains all the vocal hardness of those days, but which makes a shift into a sweeter soaring soul groove! ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Philly World/Big Break (UK), 1984. New Copy
The debut album from Bryan Loren, and quite possibly his best-remembered set – a batch of catchy, upbeat 80s soul numbers – all tracks that definitely point the way towards his later productions for other hit artists! There's nothing too fancy going on here, but Bryan's right on the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Casablanca/Shout (UK), 1980. New Copy
The classic People's Choice album for Casablanca – plus bonus single mixes and unissued tracks! The original album is an extra clubby effort from the group – one that has them moving over to Casablanca after their albums for Philly International, but still staying strongly in their ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Skyranch/Shout (UK), 1993. New Copy
Down home soul from New Orleans vocalist Marva Wright – an album that was recorded in the early 90s, but with music styles that stretch many years back! Overall, the production and instrumentation is relatively modern – a bit in the Malaco Records mode of later years – but most ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Shout (UK), 1961. New Copy
Raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – "Peppermint Twist", "The ... CD

Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A standout classic from Platypus – one of the tightest funk acts to work for Casablanca Records in the 70s! The quintet have a razor-sharp sound right from the start – leaner than some of the bigger funk ensembles of the time, but equally powerful in the end – thanks to a great ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ABC/Shout (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Uptempo blues and uptown r&b from Mr Personality himself – the great Lloyd Price – a huge batch of numbers cut in the late 50s and beginning of the 60s! The set is of full of chiming, hook filled singles like the huge title track – with fairly brassy arrangements, piano and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Private Stock/Cherry Pop (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of the best 70s showcases for the mighty vocals of Cissy Houston – that tremendous approach that was rooted in gospel, but burst out strongly in the secular world – thanks to records like this! Houston's working here with clubby maestro Michael Zager, but the set's not all disco ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A really rich second album from Ripple – a group who took awhile to return to the studio, but really developed a lot in the process! The combo started out as a straight funk act – but here, they really take off with a tight approach to their instrumentation – razor-sharp work on ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Delicacies, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
As the title says, the set's filled with rare funk tunes from New Orleans – all late 60s/early 70s material by Chuck Simmons, mostly issued as obscure 45s!
