4.50 11

A killer live set by Rufus Thomas – recorded right at the height of his funky comeback, before a very right-on crowd at PJ's Nightclub in LA! Rufus was always a great entertainer, and he really opens up in this live setting – doing some nice versions of "Do The Funky Chicken", "Push & Pull", "Walking The Dog", and "Ooh Poo Pah Doo" – and starting out the set with a 12 minute monologue! Heck, the whole thing sounds so great that even the old songs get a new lease on life! CD also features 3 more bonus tracks – we think from the Wattstax concert – titles that include "Do The Funky Chicken", "Do The Funky Penguin", and "The Breakdown".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the best Rufus Thomas albums from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set ... CD

Stax (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A long overdue collection of the Stax, Truth and Volt singles by The Newcomers – a largely under-appreciated sweet soul group from Memphis! While the Stax empire had broken so much stylistic and commercial ground on a number of levels in the preceding years, the sweeter vocal group style was ... CD
Stax (UK), Mid 60s/1970. New Copy
A huge batch of unreleased work by Stax Records diva Carla Thomas – one full album recorded with producer Chips Moman, and a whole batch of unissued mid 60s singles too! The Moman album is sublime – and has Carla in this warmer, more mature style that's quite a change not only from her ... CD
Enterprise/Stax (UK), 1974. New Copy
An overlooked gem on Stax Records – one of the only records ever cut by Bettye Crutcher – also a songwriter with the label, but a hell of a singer on her own! Bettye's got a style here that's very unique – still in a Stax mode, but a bit more sophisticated too – with a ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Massive funk from the ADC Band – some lesser-known cats from the early 80s scene on Atlantic Records – but a group with a sense of soul and power that knocks over most of their contemporaries! For those who've ever doubted the influence of P-Funk on the rest of soul music, you only ... CD
Stay With Me
Warner (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Deep deep soul from Lorraine Ellison – a record that already shows quite a bit of growth from her earlier Warner Brothers recordings – and a new sense of hipness as well! There's definitely an influence here of the sound of Stax and Atlantic Records at the end of the 60s – all ... 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
Dirt
Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A real breakout album for singer Paul Kelly – his first record in a legendary early 70s run for Warner Brothers, and a set that took southern soul to a new level of righteousness! The sessions for the album were recorded in Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and Nashville – all produced by Buddy ... CD
In Tune
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Sublime sounds from Willie Hutch – a post-Motown album made for Whitfield Records – and a set that's got a wonderfully laidback, mellow funk groove! Gene Page handled the arrangements – and the sound here is more easygoing than some of Willie's funkier work – but in a great ... CD
Oh What A Feeling
Warner (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Overlooked solo work from Mavis Staples – a set recorded around the time the Staple Singers were making their move into more clubby and modern soul modes – both of which Mavis handles here! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, and still has a deep soul core – but it also ... CD
