You Talk Too Much
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy
Joe Jones is a heck of a compelling singer here – way more than you might expect if you just know the title hit – even though that track's a gem too! The approach is early New Orleans soul, but also a bit more freewheeling than more familiar work of the time – with small combo ... CD

Dubs Meet The Shells
Josie/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Two great groups, brought together here in this rare early LP for the Josie label – a stunning showcase to the mighty talents of each act, with a side of music apiece! The Dubs have a very spare, unfettered quality – vocals that hang in the air, and move forward with little or no ... CD

Stax, 2014. New Copy
A surprisingly great set of tracks – all recorded for the Memphis soul movie Take Me To The River, and featuring many generations of Tennessee talents, all coming together to revive the best sounds from years back! The mix of talents here is quite usual, and comes across unusually well ... CD

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1971. New Copy
One of the most righteous albums ever from Edwin Starr – as if you couldn't guess from the title and cover! The set has Starr reprising his "War" hit at the start, then rolling through a whole run of heavy tracks with the great Norman Whitfield – who takes Edwin into some of ... CD

Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Perhaps the ultimate album for The Gap Band – and sure, it was a hit, but the record still sounds great today, and the constant sampling of some of the record has kept it fresh in the crates for years and years. The band have lost the heavier funk sound of earlier years, and working in a ... CD

West End, Early 80s. Very Good
A brilliant bit of space funk – with nice bubbly moogy parts, similar to work by the P&P team – but also with more of a straight heavy club sound, in the best West End tradition! The cut's a perfect bit of electronica history, and would sound great in a new or classic set of mixes. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Swingtime (Sweden), 1940s/1986. Near Mint-
Swingtime LP issue of a whole bunch of cool Louis Jordan 78's, most of which had never been on LP before this issue. The stuff on the LP represents some of his earliest Decca material, and the tracks include "Bounce The Ball", "Oh Boy I'm In The Groove", "Waitin For The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Slewfoot
Buddah/Unidisc (Canada), 1974. Used
A really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black ... CD

Best Of Jimmy McCracklin
Minit, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A fine assortment of 60s work by the great Jimmy McCracklin – a key figure in the transition between R&B and 60s soul! The set's got most of Jimmy's best singles for Minit and Imperial, with hard-hitting raw soul tunes that include "Arkansas (parts 1 & 2)", "Just Got ... LP, Vinyl record album

Disco Gold #4
United, 1978. Very Good
No description available. LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mercury, 1992. Very Good
A shameless bit of pop house – but we love it! Lidell's original tune is super catchy, with a "nu nu" vocal refrain that will keep you humming for days – and it's presented here in a bunch of different extended mixes! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
San Francisco Dues
Chess, Early 70s. Sealed
One of the weirdest Chuck Berry albums ever – and one of the greatest, too! The sound here is very different than the hard rockin Berry of the early days – and the record's got kind of a laidback, trippy, and slightly bluesy approach – one that has Chuck singing in these homey ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Scotti Bros, 1998. Near Mint-
James Brown gets a new injection of life at the end of the 80s – thanks to a collaboration here with Full Force, who wrote, arranged, and produced the album! The groove here is often more in a Full Force mode than you might expect from James – a full-on 80s urban sound, filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Crazy Cadillacs
Jubilee, 1959. Near Mint-
A killer from the legendary Cadillacs – maybe our favorite group on the east coast scene of the late 50s, and one of the few we can really depend on for a wonderful sense of range! The Cadillacs have a power that matches some of the bigger names of the time, especially The Drifters on ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Amy, 1966. Sealed (reissue)
If this is the New Lee Dorsey – we forgot all about the old one! The album's one of Lee's best early records – a killer batch of soul tracks that struts out of the New Orleans scene with some amazingly jagged production from Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn, very much in the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Revelation (1980)
Handshake, 1980. Used
Wonderful wonderful work from Revelation – one of those groups who never seem to get their full due in the soul history books – but who stand proud with the best of their generation! The group have a sound that's clearly coming from an older harmony tradition, but which is also steeped ... CD

We Got The Funk
Sugar Hill/Sequel (UK), Early 80s. Used
Great lost funky soul material from one of the few non-rap acts on Sugar Hill. The group maintain a very strong jazzy club sound – with a bit of a Wayne Henderson/At Home groove, and a nice polished finish. Some tracks even have a strong positive vibe, and the kind of righteous mellow soul ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Legacy, Mid 70s. Used
Classic mellow 70s soul by the unique Phoebe Snow – an artist who managed to skirt so many camps at once, and who had a wonderfully warm folksy soul style that never failed to please. The CD contains 16 cuts, including the hit "Poetry Man", plus "All Over", "Never ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Curtom/Charly (UK), 1976/1977. Used
2 overlooked gems from Curtis Mayfield – back to back on one CD! Give Get Take & Have is done with an emphasis on warmer, sweeter styles – tunes that mix a subtle approach to funk with some great warm vocals from Curtis – in a way that re-exposes his talents as a singer of ... CD

Tribute To Uncle Ray
Hallmark, 1963. Used
Early vocal work from Stevie Wonder – a tribute to Ray Charles, who's not really Stevie's uncle – but a decidedly good match as a sightless soul contemporary! Wonder's vocals are still quite youthful at this point, and bring a really different interpretation to Ray's classics than ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hallmark, 1963. Used
Early work from Stevie Wonder – recorded when he was only 11 years old, but already a whiz on a number of instruments! The grooves here definitely live up to the "jazz soul" promised in the title – as most numbers are instrumental, with a soul jazz groove that's really ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sweet Inspirations
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1967. Used
The wonderful debut album by the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic – with the same sweet sound that they had backing Aretha Franklin on her classic recordings! The group was a huge backing boon for everyone from Aretha to Elvis, but their own albums were really great, too – an amazing ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I'm Not The Same Girl
Cotillion/Wounded Bird, 1985. Used
A crossover classic from Stacy Lattisaw – an album that's much more mature than her earlier work, despite the "girl" in the title! The tunes are often slow-building and somewhat emotive – in a way that has Stacy stretching out her vocals a bit more than before as she reaches ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Disco Garden
Unidisc/Solar, 1978. Used
Snapping soulful grooves from Shalamar – one of the group's big early albums, and an important part of the Solar sound of LA! The trio groove nicely over a set of upbeat tracks that were clearly aimed at the clubs, but which also have more than enough straight soul to get them on the charts. ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Westbound (UK), 1974/1975. Used
A beautiful collection of work by funky soul diva Spanky Wilson – a set that features her full Westbound album Specialty Of The House, plus a nice array of even harder-hitting singles! Spanky first rose to fame as a gritty singer mixing jazz and soul on a series of late 60s/early 70s sides ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Glades/Henry Stone, 1978. Used
Latimore's digging deeper, and sounding greater than ever – working at Muscle Shoals with some great Miami production from Steve Alaimo – and coming across with a sound that's even warmer and more sophisticated than before – yet still very true to its deep soul roots too! At a ... CD

Zane (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used
No description available. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hansa/BMG (Germany), 1978. Used
A nice bit of space age disco fantasy from Boney M – a set that's got a few more electronic touches than some of the group's other records, but which still continues in a straight ahead poppy vein! There's a sound here that's arguably a bit more sophisticated than before – especially ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Body Language
CTI (UK), 1980. Used
A sweet blend of jazz and soul from Patti Austin – recorded at Muscle Shoals studios, with a sound that's surprisingly rootsy on a few numbers! Patti's still got all the polish she picked up from her years with Quincy Jones, but she's also stepping out a bit more as an artist with a stronger ... CD

West Side (UK), Early 60s. Used
No description available. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ABC/Concord, 1962. Used
Brilliant work throughout – both of Ray Charles' classic country albums on a single CD package! Volume one is the stuff of legends – and what seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius – the most successful album of his career and a bona-fide number one hit ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dreams & Wishes
Relic, Early/Mid 50s. Used
No description available. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1977. Used
A sweet 70s classic from Roberta Flack – recorded with a mellow jazzy undercurrent that really fits the spirit of the title! The set's a bit more varied in moods than some of Flack's previous Atlantic efforts – showing a stretching of wings from Roberta, but still very much in some ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Epic, 1991. Used
One of those records that we remember dismissing at the time – but honestly, it really lives up to repeated listenings in later years! Sure, Michael Jackson's no longer working with Quincy Jones – and instead goes for Teddy Riley and some other (then) contemporary producers – but ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cadet/MCA (UK), 1972. Used
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in ... CD

Way I Feel
Cadet (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Phil Upchurch – and one of the best from legendary arranger Charles Stepney too – a set that uses Upchurch's guitar in the same way that Stepney was using the piano of Ramsey Lewis in the late 60s! The record has full arrangements that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Upchurch
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
An incredible album from one of the greatest talents on the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s – guitarist Phil Upchurch, a player with an amazing sound! Phil could work in worlds that were equal parts soul and psychedelia – making his guitar a perfect accompaniment for the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol, 1970s. New Copy 2LP
All the best Minnie Riperton tracks on one set – a beautiful double-length package of tunes, hand-picked because of their lasting importance to Minnie's fans in recent generations! The tracks on the set span the gamut of Minnie's recording career, and have a focus on the kinds of righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album
