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.

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
Columbia/FTG, 1985. New Copy
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
Teddy Pendergrass
Philadelphia International, 1977. New Copy
Teddy Pendergrass – we love you! This is one of Mr. P's greatest albums of smooth mellow soul – recorded after he left Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and began working in a wonderfully warm solo style that had a huge influence on male vocal soul for years to come! The sound here ... CD
Back Stabbers
Philadelphia International, 1972. New Copy
A landmark album for the O'Jays – a set that moved them from the indie ranks to 70s megasoul status! After years of bumping around on a variety of labels, and in a variety of styles, the group really exploded with this wonderful set – an album that has them soaring along in the ... 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

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

Excellent early albums from Billy Ocean – 1975's Billy Ocean and 1980's City Limit – back-to-back with some solid bonus tracks, too! Billy Ocean is his first, and probably best album ever – a mix of uptempo anthemic r&b tunes and sophisticated ballads that are truly Motown ... 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
Stovall Sisters
Reprise (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Wickedly righteous work from The Stovall Sisters – a hip female soul trio who recorded this wonderful blend of funk, gospel, and soul at the start of the 70s! The group's got roots that definitely start in gospel – but like most of their best contemporaries, they're eager to share ... CD
Maybe
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Amazing early work from the Three Degrees – tracks cut before their more famous disco years in the 70s – but already showing a whole new approach to girl group soul! At some level, the trio take off strongly from the best late 60s styles of The Supremes – taking the most ... 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
