A Whole New Thing, indeed – the first album ever from Sly &The Family Stone – and a record that would forever change the face of pop, funk, and soul music! Even at this early point, all the group's best energy is firmly in place – a mad mix of raw funky roots with righteous late 60s energy – all served up with a lot more focus than most of the indie acts of the time, with enough of a punch to cross the group over to a much wider audience! Most tunes are short, hard, and tight – and the album features few familiar hits – which almost makes it a new discovery if you've only ever heard Sly's work from a "greatest hits" perspective. Titles include "Dog", "Bad Risk", "Underdog", "Run Run Run", "Turn Me Loose", and "That Kind Of Person". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Only One Way Out Of This Mess", "What Would I Do", "You Better Help Yourself (inst)", "Underdog (single)", and "Let Me Hear It From You (single)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly Stone – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more – hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way! The album's filled with anthemic ... CD

You, Me & He
Epic, 1984. Used
Proof that the move to soul was actually a great thing for James Mtume – because although the set's miles from his spiritual jazz work of the 70s, it more than makes up for that shift with a sophisticated approach to 80s soul! The group's a small one, with lots of keyboards from Mtume, and a ... CD

Sade's last LP from the early 90s before she went into her brief recording and performing hiatus. Like the preceding records, the approach is heavy on the jazz side of things, with a crisp, spare touch on the production and a wonderfully soulful feel to the songwriting. At this point she no ... CD

Victory
Epic, 1984. Used
Michael Jackson's last album with his famous family – a set of electric 80s soul that's a bit different than Jackson's well-known solo work! In a way, the later Jacksons albums almost feel like a place where Michael can try out some ideas that don't fit as tightly into the overall sound of ... CD

Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... CD

Chain

The Family Stand came into this world after Soul II Soul – and had a sound that was remarkably similar, which was probably both their strength and their downfall! Whatever the case, though, they were a refreshingly real soul act in the early 90s – and even if they only ever had one ... CD

Special Style
Streetwise/Boogie Times (France), 1985. Used
A whole new sound for The Stylistics – one that has the group working here with Maurice Starr in a sweet 80s street soul style! The approach is a surprisingly good one – and given that Starr's backings are always on the lighter side of the spectrum, the group's trademark harmonies are ... CD
