Johnnie Taylor's first album for Stax – and a tremendous little set that easily stands as one of his greatest records ever! Sure, we love Johnnie in all his incarnations – but there's a special sort of something here – a rawness and earnestness – that makes the whole thing shine right from the start – a crispy sort of Memphis vibe that has the Stax Records team really hitting their stride. The set's filled with great tunes from the team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter – including "I Got To Love Somebody's Baby", "Toe Hold", "Outside Love", "Little Bluebird", and "I Had A Dream" – and also features great versions of "Watermelon Man", "Ain't That Loving You", and "Where Can A Man Go From Here".

Joy
Stax/Enterprise, 1973. Used
One of the funkiest Isaac Hayes albums for Stax – thanks mostly to the extended title cut! The tune "Joy" is a monster – running for nearly 16 minutes long, and starting with a killer drum break on the intro – then full, proud, bad-stepping Isaac Hayes grooves ... CD
Miracles
Atlantic (Japan), 1981. Used
A brilliant second set from Change – working here without Luther Vandross on lead vocals, but hardly missing a beat at all! As before, the basslines are at the core of the set – a sweet stripped-down approach that brings even more focus onto the bottom of the groove for early 80s ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Mid 60s. Used
Some of the best non-Motown soul to ever come out of Detroit, and a brilliant example of the uptown soul sound of the 60's! Barbara Lewis was an amazing singer – and although her work was always pretty darn polished, it was handled in a unique way that still remained very soulful, and which ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1960s. Used
16 of Otis Redding's best numbers, pulled together out of the Stax vaults after Atlantic had more or less completely taken over the Memphis label. Includes "I Can't Turn You Loose", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)", "Try A Little ... CD

Love's In You Love's In Me
Casablanca/Gold Legion, 1978. Used
Sweetly soulful club from the team of Giorgio Moroder and vocalist Chris Bennett! Giorgio's best known for a host of famous disco sets from the late 70s – and although this album might well be ranked with the best of them, it's also got a warmer, more intimate feel overall – a mode of ... CD
Light The Light
Horizon/A&M (Japan), 1979. Used
A great step forward for Seawind – as the combo's working here in a style that's a bit leaner than before, but still every bit as warm and jazzy – a perfect foil for the soulful vocals of singer Pauline Wilson! The tunes have this wonderfully breezy feel that really befits the group's ... CD
