A funky party all the way through – and the one and only album we've ever seen from Johnny Otis main tenor player in the 60s!

Sweet Apple
Columbia, Early 70s. Very Good-
A bit funk, a bit rock, and a bit soul – Sweet Apple proudly followed in the tradition of similar Columbia acts like Sly & The Family Stone or The Chambers Brothers, although they never lasted long enough to get the fame of either of those groups.

Across 110th Street
United Artists, 1972. Near Mint- (reissue)
One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Power In Your Love
20th Century, 1975. Very Good+
Their second LP for 20th Century, and a nice batch of funky soul tracks with a better groove than their first.

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!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
AVI, 1978. Sealed
Well, we might argue with the title – but the record's actually a pretty nice batch of funky tracks, albeit with a sound that's different than Rufus' Stax recordings. On this one, he gets kind of a clubby funk treatment from AVI – but the record's less disco than you'd expect from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

Virgo Tracks Again
Trax, Early 80s. Good+
8 tracks of mostly drums and drum machine – with no titles – from Vincent Lawrence aka Virgo. Pretty much put together as tool for house and club DJs in it's day, this set is equally appealing on its own, as an excellent snapshot from the heyday of Chicago house. LP, Vinyl record album

Cold Fact
Sussex, 1970. Used
One of a handful of enigmatic albums cut in the early 70s by Sixto Rodriguez – a Latin-tinged singer with a style that's a bit like that of Jose Feliciano – but trippier, and with more rock and folk touches! This set's probably his best one – thanks to arrangements and production ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dawn/Sanctuary (UK), 1970. Used
Messed-up funky jazz from an obscure early 70s UK group – and an album that really lives up to its trippy cover! The tracks are all long and stretched out – with lots of organ, sax, and spaced out drums – and the overall style is a mix of dub-heavy funk, Afro jazz, and a bit of ... CD

Alston/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. Used
One of the most unique albums to ever come out of the Miami soul scene of the 70s – a sublime set of work that we'd easily rank right up there with the best material of the time from Donny Hathaway or Stevie Wonder! Milton Wright has a really jazzy groove to his music – and he mixes ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Seventy Seven/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. Used
The rare first album by The Brief Encounter – a mid 70s funk group from North Carolina, with a sweet, strong, and jazzy flavor that makes them feel like the best of the California scene in the 70s! The group shift effortlessly between tight ensemble funk, including a few tasty instrumentals, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
One Eye Open
Dynamo, Late 60s. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mandre
Motown/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy
A classic set of spacey club from Mandre – aka Andre Lewis – an artist we'd place right up there with some of the best cosmic sounds from Dexter Wansel at the time, and maybe even some of the more space-bound club artists of the European scene as well! The album's got some wonderful ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miss Randy Crawford
Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
One of the hippest, tightest albums ever from Randy Crawford – a set that's got a great blend of jazz, funk, and soul – all with the kind of poise and polish she brought to her famous work with The Crusaders! Crawford's wonderful vocals are wrapped up perfectly in some cool combo ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live Stuff
Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A nice little live set from Stuff – one that's recorded in Tokyo, with a groove that's a bit more open than their better-known New York live album from a few years later! The sound's somewhat rougher than the Stuff studio sessions, but in a good way – one that shows that the combo can ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
R&B, soul, roots rock, country, and more – all served up in a heady space that was the unique sound of Charlie Gillett's famous Honky Tonk radio show in the 70s! Charlie did a heck of a lot for breaking down musical barriers at the time – and was a hugely influential DJ whose work ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Deeply soulful sounds from a crucial time in music – that late 50s/early 60s stretch when R&B was merging into soul, and created so many wonderful records in the process! The set's filled with quick-stepping groovers that are on the hip side of the spectrum – tunes that might have ... CD

GC Cameron
Motown (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Strong work from GC Cameron – really making a bold mark here on his own – working in a smooth, rich, masculine style that's a bit like some of the best early 70s material from Eddie Kendricks! Arrangements are by James Carmichael, Paul Riser, Wade Marcus, Gene Page, and other smooth ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Derby/Beatball (Korea), 1978. New Copy
Really weird, wonderful work from Nancy Nova – a disco singer with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Nancy's voice is often quite high – so much so, you'll be running for the record to make sure you're playing it at the right speed – but her style is a perfect ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Caught In The Act
Motown (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Wicked early funk from The Commodores – a group that spent so much time on pop ballads in later years, it's hard to believe they could be this sharp and hard-edged! There's plenty of that bass-heavy style that would later dominate many Motown combos at the end of the 70s – but the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eddie Kendricks
Tamla (Japan), 1973. New Copy
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Take Two
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Beautiful work from Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston – done in a style that's perhaps a bit more intimate, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Marvin's other duets, but still in the great Motown tradition of the 60s! On the set, Weston seems to bring out the sweeter sound of Marvin's voice ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
DJ Rogers
Shelter/Fever Dream, 1973. New Copy
Mindblowing music from the great DJ Rogers – his first record, and a rootsy album of spiritual soul, right up there with the best 70s work by artists like Donny Hathaway, Rance Allen, or Stevie Wonder! Like all of those giants, DJ's got a deeply soulful vocal style that's more than ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pride/Fever Dream, 1973. New Copy

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Album
Source/Solaris, 1980. New Copy

Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.95
A rare 70s soul set from Carol Woods – a singer who's done a fair bit of work on the musical stage, but who has plenty to offer in this obscure debut album! The record was mostly cut in New York, yet only issued in the UK – which is part of the reason for its obscurity – and the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... CD
