RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy
Great stuff – and the kind of group that would be easy to overlook if the tracks weren't so good! The Brothers were clearly some sort of a studio project designed to cash in on the disco craze – and they included Bhen Lanzaroni on keyboards, who'd also recorded a bit on his own as a ... CD

Motown/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
One of Lenny's first solo records – rawer than later work, thanks probably to the fact that he produced the record with Chester Thompson – and it's wonderful stuff! Thompson plays organ and arp on the record, and gives many tracks a nice heavy funk sound that's similar to his and ... CD

Complete Atco Recordings
Atco/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Beautiful soul vocals from Dee Dee Warwick – the entirety of her work for Atco – all of it recorded between 1970 and 1972! Dee Dee had a pretty successful run as a solo singer for Mercury before moving to Atco, to say nothing of her pedigree as a session singer over the years, hitting ... CD

Arista/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy
A nicely grooving set to start the 80s by The Waters – an underappreciated 2-man, 2-woman LA vocal group who did a considerable amount of backup vocals in the studio scene of the late 70s – and this is easily their best record! It's got some of the best arrangements the group ever ... CD

Shaft (colored vinyl)
Enterprise/Stax, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s! Isaac Hayes had already surprised music fans with the sophistication of his first few solo albums, which had been issued before this one – but with Shaft, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hot Pepper
Philips/Get On Down, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Funky funky Thailand – just about the only 70s funk group we've ever seen from that part of the globe, and a great one at that! The Impossibles work in a tightly-crafted ensemble funk style that's clearly influenced by Kool & The Gang – but which also has the group hitting some ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
SES Records/Creole Stream (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A lost blacksploitation treasure – and the only soundtrack we've ever seen from Motown funky drummer Jack Ashford! The album cooks with a sweet and tight groove – kicking back with a wah-wah heavy instrumental approach on some tracks, and sweeping things up with soulful female vocals ... CD

Now Again, Early 70s/2006. Near Mint-

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
A nice little promo sampler issued in the mid 70s on Atlantic – issued with the tag line "If You're Reaching Out For Soul, Grab Atlantic Records" – and giving you good reason to! 10 numbers in all, including "Without Love" by Aretha Franklin, "Sitting On Top Of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dakar, 1980. Very Good+
An excellent, if lesser known, uptempo roller skating groove, with a chirping guitar and rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tommy Boy, 1984. Very Good+ (pic cover)
As usual, the Force MD's doing their retro vocal harmonizing with a just a little rhyming. Love Beat is just the voices over the beat, with no other music. Produced by Mr. Magic and arranged by Keith LeBlanc. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Luv N' Haight, Late 70s. Near Mint- (reissue)
An early Luv N Haight 12" single – featuring some of the best jazzy soul of all time! All cuts are incredible – and they're 3 of the most-remembered tracks from the legendary first album by James Mason! "Sweet Power" has a spacey club groove that's just great – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Atlantic, 1998. Very Good+

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Zanza (Italy), 1982. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A wicked groover from Klein & MBO – bubbling over with the sweet electro touches we love in their work! The track's a percolated drum machine riffer – with whispered breathy vocals over the beats, and electric keys that come in nicely and take the tune over. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rhythm King, 1988. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A great bit of pop acid house from the UK heyday of the late 80s – a clear follow-up in spirit to hits like "Pump Up The Volume" and "Bomb The Bass", with a similar blend of brazen beats, blasts of sound, and stark samples that come in and out of the mix. A bit more poppy ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bridges
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. Used
An oft-overlooked jazzy gem from Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson – and a beautifully swinging session that has Gil toning it down a bit, and working into a nicely musical groove that gets past the heavy politics of earlier years! The record's a great showcase for the more upbeat side of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Label M/Atlantic, 1974. Used
Tight funky work from Dr John – a second collaboration with producer Allen Toussaint, and a set that follows strongly on their Right Place record of the year before! The groove's not as messed-up as on the first few Atlantic records by the Doctor – but in it's place is a sweet electric ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. Used
A 70s soul classic – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit! The album's best known for its anthemic classic "Johannesburg" – one of the first popular tunes to really push the cause of a free South Africa – but the whole album's a winner, filled ... CD

Do It Good (with bonus tracks)
TK/Big Break (UK), 1974. Used
KC & The Sunshine band definitely live up to the title here – doing it good, and doing it funky with a great early Miami funk groove! The sound has a lot more sharp edges than their later hits – but is still already plenty darn infectious – a wicked bouncy groove that never ... CD

MGM/Film Score Monthly, Mid 70s. Used 3 CDs
An amazing collection of music – and essential to any collection of blacksploitation soul and funk, even if you own the original Shaft album on Stax! Disc 1 features the original film score for the Shaft movie, not the record issued by Stax – so although Isaac Hayes handled the music, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, 1971/1972. Used
Heavy duty fuzzy soul from Black Merda (aka Mer-Da) – the massive Black Merda and Long Burn The Fire LPs back-to-back on one CD! The Black Merda album has a distinct batch of influences that run from Funkadelic, to Hendrix, to Chicago electric blues – but since the recording (from ... CD

Ace (UK), Mid 50s. Used
Stick McGhee is probably most famous these days for his classic "Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee", which he recorded for Atlantic in the late 40's, but this collection, recorde for King in the early 50's, is nearly as crazy, and has a lot of the kind of crazy 50's R&B stuff about drinkin' ... CD

Lost Tapes
Secret Stash, 1969/1970. New Copy
Not "lost tapes" – more "long overdue tapes" – as they finally give us a full picture of this legendary funk band from Milwaukee! Vic Pitts got his start in the Seven Sounds with Harvey Scales – but at the time of these recordings, he'd broken off to form his ... CD

Magic/Echoes & Images
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1980/1981. New Copy

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

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Stirring sounds from the start of the 60s – all pulled from that magical moment when soul was first coming into place – brought together out of different strands of grooves that were rumbling around in the 50s! The set mixes R&B, vocal group, and even a bit of pop – but all ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy

Expansion (UK), 2012. New Copy
A great groove from singer Gregory Porter – the first tune that really brought him to our attention – making a debut appearance here on vinyl! The original of "1960 What" is plenty great – running for over 12 minutes, and building in this jazzy groove that's really ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
