Hidden gems and otherwise – a massive collection of work from Luther Vandross – almost all of which goes way beyond his overplayed hits! The package brings together some forgotten album tracks, a few rare singles, and even sound soundtrack numbers – all to show that there's way more to Luther's music than just the classics you hear again and again over the years – amazingly warm, deep soul tunes, all sung in that unbeatable Luther Vandross vocal mode! Titles include "Buy Me A Rose", "I Who Have Nothing", "Are You Using Me", "I'd Rather", "Like I'm Invisible", "You Really Started Something", "The Thrill I'm In (radio mix)", "When You Call On Me", "Once You Know How", "I Know You Want To", "Once We Were Lovers", and "Heart Of A Hero".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CD...$9.99 13.98
The rare early 80s club soul set from Margie Joseph – kind of an bubbling, synth and programming era departure of the stunning female southern soul singer! The groove is definitely a left turn for Margie, but it's endearing modern club soul – with the dancefloor gem "Knockout" ... CD

RCA/FTG, 1985. New Copy
Nona's last album for RCA – and it's an edgy mid 80s dancefloor soul stormer that really helps solidify just how fearlessly creative Nona was in her solo years – as if we needed to be reminded! Nona's powerful, not-to-be-messed with vocals have the greatest presence of any element ... CD

CD...$9.99 13.98
Full Force getting busy in a mid 80s groove – the first set the group cut as a headline attraction – and a nice mix of 80s post electro R&B with plenty of influences from the hip hop producers of the time! The group's biggest crossover success was as the songwriting and production ... CD

Best Of Merry Clayton
Ode/Sony, Early 70s. New Copy
A killer collection of Merry Clayton's incredible work for the Ode Records label in the early 70s – really genre-crossing soul music cut hot on the heels of Clayton's famous work with Joe Cocker, The Rolling Stones, and others! Merry's got a damn powerful vocal approach here – as ... CD

Now Then & Forever
Sony, 2013. New Copy
A mindblowingly good album from Earth Wind & Fire – one of the best we've heard from them in years, and a set that really lives up to all the faith we've had in the group over the years! The sound is right on the money – from performance to production – with a vibe that ... CD

Right On Be Free
Elektra (Japan), 1970. New Copy
The landmark first album by this legendary 70s soul group – and one with a feel that's much different than their later work! The style here is much more strongly righteous than their sweeter soul of the mid 70s – with a pronounced gospel influence that focuses most strongly on the ... CD

Lovesmith
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy
Great group soul from the early 80s Motown years – a stellar set from Michael Smith and the Lovesmith group – the quartet he sung with before moving on as a solo act with the group's name in place of his own surname! Michael previously worked in The Smith Connection group in the 70s, ... CD

Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy
A great later production by Norman Whitfield – and one that almost returns to the simpler harmony soul of 60s Motown! Masterpiece have a style that's much more fragile and sweet than other groups on the Whitfield label – which was mostly dedicated to fuller and dancefloor soul. The ... CD

Lady Soul
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. New Copy
One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd! The Sweet Inspirations provide sublime backing vocals behind Franklin's maturing delivery of the lyrics – and the music is by an all-star group ... CD

Paisley Park, 1986. New Copy
Prince in near-peak form in the mid 80 – creatively, anyway! Parade is a brilliant stand-alone album, tough it doubles as a soundtrack to a film that flopped – standing today as one of our favorite Prince albums from the 80s! Includes the massively funky "Kiss", the closest ... CD

Motown/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy
One of the best of the 60s live sets from Motown – a sublime showcase for the talents of a young Marvin Gaye! There's a feel here that's a bit looser, and almost a bit rougher than some of Marvin's other records from the time – and there's almost a bit more force in his vocals than on ... CD
