LP (Item 488047) Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1972 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the modes that were happening up north either. Instead, Al lays things out with this stunningly mature style – sexy, but never overdone – confident, but never in a swaggering way – with a really special flow that comes from the great Willie Mitchell's talents in the studio, but an edge that's Green at his secular best. The album's got a lasting appeal that's made it a favorite for generations – both a key introduction to soul, but also a treasured favorite for longtime collectors – and never every track's a gem – from the classic "Let's Stay Together", through a set list that includes "I've Never Found A Girl", "La La For You", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "So You're Leaving", and "What Is This Feeling".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Hi Records, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the most successful record Otis Clay ever cut – and a wonderful little set that recasts his bluesy Chicago vocals with a sweeter Memphis soul approach! Willie Mitchell is very firmly in the house for the record – and the approach he uses here with Otis is similar to that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s. New Copy
A real lost treasure on Hi Records – one of the few albums ever cut by Don Bryant, a singer whose talents seemed to be eclipsed by the rising stars of Al Green and Ann Peebles – but who was every bit as great! Bryant's got a sound here that's still firmly in the Hi style forged by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keep On Steppin'
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tay-Ster, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Rare hard funky soul from early 70s titans Damn Sam The Miracle Man – and some of the rawest, fiercest funk we've ever heard! Damn Sam is actually a group – spearheaded by vocalist OC Tolbert – a man with a roaring voice and righteous delivery that could tear through brick – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rojac, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Massive Miami soul from Third Guitar – a short-lived group headed by guitarist Snoopy Dean – and one who've built up a well-deserved legacy over the years! This unusual set is the first time the group's work has ever been brought together – and it's a real revelation if you only ... LP, Vinyl record album

Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Evans Pyramid
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Rare grooves from Evans Pyramid – a sweet set of cosmic disco from the end of the 70s – recorded with a lean, almost spiritual vibe – quite similar to some of the great tracks reissued in the Soul Cal series! There's a definite ear for the dancefloor here – lots of upbeat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lawdy Lawdy Lawd
Numero, 1979. New Copy
Looks like a 12" single, but the set's actually fantastic full album of rare funky soul – the only set ever cut by this obscure southern combo from Birmingham – a group who seem to share the best mix of club and funk styles you'd find on the Atlanta scene of the late 70s! By that, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chasing Rainbows
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy
Weird and wild sounds from the Detroit scene of the late 60s – served up by a group who were scenemates of The Stooges and MC5, but never got the fame they deserved! These guys mix together equal parts fuzz and garage – at a level that still packs a solid, heavy punch – but which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Looking For Lazlo
Sudden Hunger (Italy), 2014. New Copy
Rory Moore plays two of our favorite instruments here – vibes and organ – but he's also got help from a great host of guest artists too – a range of singers and musicians who really help make for a rich range of sounds! The style is a very cool amalgam of space age styles, sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
