Modulations — It's Rough Out Here (with bonus tracks) ... CD 24.99

A righteous group soul classic from the 70s – the one and only album from The Modulations, and a lasting classic that almost beats the multiple album runs of some of their contemporaries! The group's a southern harmony quartet at their core, but they also get some really great backings on the set – a Philly vibe that really matches the best work from the Gamble & Huff stable, but with more of an indie vibe too – fitting for the Buddah Records placement of the set. The record features studio help from Norman Harris, Vince Montana, and Bobby Eli – whose work on the record helps link the style to the righteous grooves of groups like Soul Generation or True Reflection – both a good comparison to The Modulations too! Titles include "It's Rough Out Here", "I Found Love At Last", "Those Were The Best Days Of My Life", and "I'll Always Love You".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Executive Suite 1
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a full-length set from Executive Suite – a Philly quartet who are probably best known for their singles in the 70s, but who really find a great way to open up here in the course of an expanded album!

Kudu, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite-ever albums from Esther Phillips – an album that really helped her transform her sound for the 70s!

Satisfaction
Family Groove, 1984. New Copy
A previously-unreleased album from Aurra – laid down in the studio after the group's famous run for Salsoul Records – and with a groove that's even leaner and meaner than before!

Cream/Fat Possum, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual session recorded by Swamp Dogg for Hi Records at the start of the 70s – a bit more polished and less full-on nasty than some of the usual Dogg grooves from the 70s, but still with plenty of that heavy Jerry Williams groove at the bottom! The album's got a nice tightness that we ... LP, Vinyl record album

King/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible late 50s set for King by singer Lula Reed – and a pretty unique blend of R&B and bluer and moodier material – but a lot more upbeat than you'd expect from the title! Lula's voice is a genuine vessel for the bluesy material, but it's also light and lovely, and works ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wand/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Incredible mid 60s soul from Chuck Jackson – tearing it up live at The Apollo Theater!

Polydor, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number ... LP, Vinyl record album
