We run the gamut from deep soul to Northern, Chicago steppers to house, Motown to Malaco -- and everything in between!
RCA/Mushroom (Australia), 1974. New Copy
One of the funkiest, most soulful albums to come from Australia in the 70s – and the crowning achievement of singer Renee Geyer! Renee's got a style that makes her a blue-eyed equivalent of Chaka Khan during her years with Rufus – and the band here shares a very similar style, with an ...
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul ...
Sussex/Sony, Early 70s. Used
Amazing sounds from the legendary Rodriguez – the brilliant 70s singer who had a groove that was equal parts soul, funk, rock, and folk – and an overall approach that was pretty darn unique! Most numbers here have some acoustic guitar over slightly funky rhythms – perfectly ...
Numero, 1974. New Copy
An amazing musical discovery – the lost second album from 24 Carat Black – recorded right after the band's legendary debut for Stax Records, but unissued for over 30 years! All the righteous styles of the group's famous Ghetto Misfortune's Wealth classic are fully in place here – ...
Cadet, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier! Terry's rich mellow voice is mixed with superb arrangements from the Cadet studio team, with Charles Stepney at the head, and the result is completely sublime. The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ...
Great American Music, Late 60s/1970s. Used
A hip little look at Lee Dorsey's best music of the late 60s and 1970s – and a set that features some really great surprises! The core of the collection is some of Lee's funky work recorded with Allen Toussaint on production, and the Meters helping out in the backing – the kind of ...
Virgin, 1997. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Route 66, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint-
Roulette, Early 60s. Sealed
Klimt, Early 70s. Sealed (reissue)
One of those lost funk classics that you'll never find in the original! Billy Martin leads a tight little instrumental combo – with a strong brassy finish, and lots of good wah wah guitar – through a set of originals and funky soul covers, all with a nice little groove, and kind of a ...
Charly (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint-
Wonderful doo wop work from The Five Keys – pulled from their classic Alkaddin and Capitol sides of the early 50s, some of the best vocal group material recorded at the time! The group were always a few notches above their contemporaries – and sing with a style there that's a wonderful ...
Murray Hill, 1983. Near Mint-
Charly R&B (UK), 1950s/1985. Near Mint-
One of the greatest R&B vocal groups of the 50s, featuring singer Lowman Pauling, who was a huge influence on James Brown! The tracks all have a great hard-edged sound, with little of the schmaltz that can sometimes date these songs a bit too much. The material is very rootsy soul stuff ...
LaFace, 2000. Near Mint- 2LP
King, 1957. Near Mint-
A super record from the 5 Royales – the kind of hard-edged classic that makes their King albums always worth seeking out – especially as they're great all the way through, without any filler at all! The vocals are amazing – thanks to the lead talents of the legendary Loman ...
Charly (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the ...
Atlantic (Japan), Early 50s. Very Good+
A fine little collection of doo wops, despite the misspelling of the title, all rare Atlantic sides from the fifties, by groups whose individual singles trade for crazy money, collected for release as this album in Japan in the 80s. Includes two tracks by the Diamonds (the black group, not the ...

Chess, 1984. Near Mint-
Nonesuch, 2012. New Copy
The best records in years – maybe decades – from the legendary Dr John – and a set that stands up strongly next to the messed-up Crescent City vibe of his 70s classics! Big thanks are due to Black Keys' guitarist Dan Auerbach – who produced and supervised the whole ...

Re-Lite, Early 90s. Near Mint-

Crown Prince (Sweden), 1985. Near Mint-
Charly (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint-
A great collection of the El Dorados' groundbreaking vocal group work for Vee Jay – one that focuses on their harder-grooving, more uptempo tracks! The group were a key force in empowering the vocal group sound with a harder edge and deeper groove – really setting the scene for 60s ...
Dr Horse, 1950s. Near Mint-
A great collection of hard to get numbers from one of the greatest R&B vocal groups of the 50s, featuring singer Lowman Pauling, who was a huge influence on James Brown! The tracks all have a great hard-edged sound, with little of the schmaltz that can sometimes date material of this sort a ...
Epic, 1991. Sealed
Ariola, 1979. Sealed
King, 1950s. Near Mint-
A classic set of hard rockin R&B from Hank Ballard and the legendar Midnighters – as raw a batch of vocal group tracks you'd be hard pressed to find! The album features plenty of tunes from their "Annie" cycle of songs – including "Work With Me Annie", "Anni ...
Arista/Rush, 1989. Near Mint-
Equal parts soul and hip hop – and a record that might be more New Jack than anything else, if it wasn't for production by Davy D and Jam Master Jay! The vocals are a bit poppy and silly at times, but the overall groove isn't that bad, especially considering other efforts like this of the ...
Trip, 1976. Near Mint-
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1977/1978. Used
After lending his incredible soul vocals to Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes for some of their classic recordings, Teddy Pendergrass struck out on his own as a solo act – and the rest is history! Teddy's incredible vocals and sexy style made many a fine record for Philly International ...
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. Used
A sweeeeeet groover by Patrice Rushen – her first album for Elektra, and a stunning blend of funky jazz and soul! The record really has Patrice stepping out from her earlier years at Prestige – working in some surprisingly great vocals next to tight lines on Fender Rhodes, synth, and ...
Curtom/Charly (UK), 1976. Used
One of the lesser-known Leroy Hutson LPs, but still a damn good one. There's a number of tracks that are a bit more uptempo, and aimed at the dancefloor, like "It's The Music" and "Feel The Spirit", but there's also some great cuts that are in his more standard Chicago mellow ...
Collectables, Mid 60s. Used
Sweet deep uptown soul from one of the masters of the genre. Very much in the vein of Jerry Butler, Walter Jackson, or other 60's "Icemen", but with a NY twist that was all his own. The set doesn't have eveything Tommy ever did, but it's a nice introduction to his classic soul sides ...
Ichiban (UK), Early 70s. Used
