5.00 11

One of the greatest albums ever in the history of funk – the first album by The Meters, and virtually the blueprint for countless funk records to come! The album's bubbling over with classics – all hard-hitting instrumentals played by the group in an effortlessly tight style, produced to perfection by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn in their classic 60s New Orleans style. A blinding masterpiece of bass, drums, and scratchy guitar – with tracks that include "Cardova", "Cissy Strut", "Sophisticated Cissy", "Here Comes The Meter Man", "Ease Back", "Ann", "6V6 La", and "Live Wire". Plus, the CD features 2 previously unissued tracks – "Soul Machine" and a nice cover of "The Look Of Love"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

REG Associates (Japan), 1976. New Copy
CD...$8.99 16.98
A rare little set from The Meters – recorded in their home turf of New Orleans in the mid 70s, but with a groove that's as raw as their Josie Records albums of the 60s! The vibe here is a great change from the polished production the group were getting over at Warner Brothers – and the ... CD
Eddie My Love
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
The Teen Queens were a hip R&B duo who deserve a lot more credit than their silly name might make you think. They had a style that was part raw R&B, and part 60s girl group, years before the girl group format was around long enough to become a cliché. This set of 22 tracks pulls ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
A much-needed look at the mighty Sugar Pie DeSanto – a singer who really rocked Chess Records back in the 60s! DeSanto came to the label already boasting one hell of a groove – a rock-solid sense of rhythm that made all of her tunes groovers right from the get-go – and a raw ... CD
Right On Be Free
Elektra (Japan), 1970. New Copy
The landmark first album by this legendary 70s soul group – and one with a feel that's much different than their later work! The style here is much more strongly righteous than their sweeter soul of the mid 70s – with a pronounced gospel influence that focuses most strongly on the ... CD
Stovall Sisters
Reprise (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Wickedly righteous work from The Stovall Sisters – a hip female soul trio who recorded this wonderful blend of funk, gospel, and soul at the start of the 70s! The group's got roots that definitely start in gospel – but like most of their best contemporaries, they're eager to share ... CD
Maybe
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Amazing early work from the Three Degrees – tracks cut before their more famous disco years in the 70s – but already showing a whole new approach to girl group soul! At some level, the trio take off strongly from the best late 60s styles of The Supremes – taking the most ... CD
Lovesmith
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy
Great group soul from the early 80s Motown years – a stellar set from Michael Smith and the Lovesmith group – the quartet he sung with before moving on as a solo act with the group's name in place of his own surname! Michael previously worked in The Smith Connection group in the 70s, ... CD
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy
A great later production by Norman Whitfield – and one that almost returns to the simpler harmony soul of 60s Motown! Masterpiece have a style that's much more fragile and sweet than other groups on the Whitfield label – which was mostly dedicated to fuller and dancefloor soul. The ... CD
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy
One of the best of the 60s live sets from Motown – a sublime showcase for the talents of a young Marvin Gaye! There's a feel here that's a bit looser, and almost a bit rougher than some of Marvin's other records from the time – and there's almost a bit more force in his vocals than on ... CD
SOUL (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A real lost gem from Motown! This was the only full album ever cut by The Monitors – a 3-man, 1-woman vocal group who were in a popular Motown mixed harmonies mode. The quartet had a wonderfully strong vocal presence – blasting away at most tracks with a strength that groups like The ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. New Copy 2 CD Gatefold
An amazing portrait of Iran in the years before WWII – pulled from rare 78rpm recordings which are remastered here beautifully, to present some stunning sounds we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a really unique flavor to most of this music – sounds that lie at the crossroads of ... CD
Cosmos
Blue Note (Japan), 1971. New Copy
An overlooked funky gem from Lou Donaldson – a later date for Blue Note, done in a style that's a bit expanded from his small combo sets of the 60s – but still filled with plenty of soul and groove! The lineup features core key players Leon Spencer on Hammond, Melvin Sparks on guitar, ... CD
