Billy Preston — Kids & Me (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD 19.99

Billy Preston right in the middle of a classic 70s run – hitting a trademark blend of soul, jazz, and other groovy influences – all with a sound that's very much his own, and which puts him in the same company as Sly Stone or Stevie Wonder! Preston's market was a bit more mainstream than those two, but at this point in his career he's very much on top of his game – really pulling together all the experience of woodshedding in the 60s, and bursting forth with a sense of pop power and pride that's totally great! Billy plays a fair bit of different keyboards on the set – and rhythms run from the respected Preston romping modes, to others that are a bit more laidback and soulful. Titles include the hit "Nothing From Nothing", plus "St Elmo", "Sometimes I Love You", "You Are So Beautiful", "Creature Feature", "Tell Me You Need My Loving", "Sad Sad Song", and "Sister Sugar".

Derby/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy
Easily one of the coolest, hippest, and most soulful records that Billy Preston ever cut – very different both from his famous work on A&M, and his early sides for Apple and Vee Jay – and done with a raw groove that makes each cut feel like some rare funky 45! The style here is a ... CD
Universal (Japan), Early 70s/Late 90s. New Copy
A massive collection of work from the legendary Terry Callier – done in the same extended style as other titles in the Free Soul series! The work here is from a number of different periods, and really moves past some of the other collections of Terry's work – which often just hone on ... CD
Express Yourself
Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A masterpiece of messed-up LA funk – and one of the crowning moments in the career of Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Charles and crew do an excellent job with all the tracks – most of which are more open ended than some of their earlier ones, and run on for ... CD
Paradise
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Amazing work from Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson – a rare session for Elektra, issued after his classic 70s sides on Curtom! The album's one of a few modern soul gems issued by Elektra at a time when they were one of the leading lights in soul – and like the Leon Ware albums from the ... CD
All Directions
Gordy (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The Temptations going in all directions – and all of them pretty darn groovy too! The set's still heavy on the solid, righteous sound of Norman Whitfield – who gives some of the best cuts that psychedelic soul imprint he really perfected with the group – a quality that has a lot ... CD
A&M/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy
The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the ... CD
Euphoria
Will Downing, 2014. New Copy
Euphoria is a great title for this one – as the record really brings us to new heights of enjoyment with the music of Will Downing! Will's always had a hell of a voice – one that sounds great in any sort of setting – but this time it seems an even better fit than usual – ... CD
Night Train International/Tuff City, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Sweet 70s funk from drummer James Black! The tunes were recorded in New Orleans, but have a bass-heavy groove that sounds a lot more like New York funk of the early 70s – tightly grooving with lots of rhythmic interplay, and a nice dose of spacey soul! About half the cuts have vocals – ... CD
Guiness/BBE (UK), 1977. New Copy
A wonderful package – a set that brings together two rare funk albums by Newban, an early version of Atlantic Starr – plus bonus tracks too! The first Newban record is one of the sweetest ensemble funk albums of the 70s – and a record that's gone on to become a classic, despite ... CD
Stax, 1972. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.98
Ahhh, good ol' Mel & Tim – possibly our favorite soul duo ever, and a really dynamic pair that carve some great new territory away from the path set by Sam & Dave! The album's a bit of a comeback for the duo, as you'd guess from the title – even though it was only recorded a ... CD
MCA/Purpose, 1979. New Copy
A dancefloor soul classic – one of the strongest albums ever by Al Hudson, Alicia Meyers, and the whole One Way crew! The record's got a sweet soulful feel that provides a nice counterpoint to its bass-heavy grooves – popping along at that midtempo pace that was Al's popular remedy for ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A rich tapestry of work from one of the greatest talents in the LA music business of the 60s – the mighty Lou Adler, a man who really learned how to make records from the ground up! Adler wrote, produced, and presented a tremendous amount of important work for some key years in both rock and ... CD
