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.

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

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

Lady Soul
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. New Copy
One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd! The Sweet Inspirations provide sublime backing vocals behind Franklin's maturing delivery of the lyrics – and the music is by an all-star group ... 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

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

On Broadway
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Hammond hero Reuben Wilson's on Broadway – and he hits a massively soulful groove that's light years from the cliched sounds of the great white way! The set's one of the tightest cookers from Wilson's early years on Blue Note – and has a vibe that's a bit different than the rest, ... CD

Fancy Free
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the coolest, grooviest 60s albums from trumpeter Donald Byrd – one that has him really reaching out for a hip new sound, but in ways that are different than most of his other material at the time! Key on the date is the placement of electric piano from Duke Pearson – played in ... CD
