A masterful set of recordings from Chicago soul chanteuse Ruby Andrews – tunes she cut for Zodiac Records between 1967 and 1973! Ruby could handle any soul style her producers threw her way, be it driving dancefloor stompers or pure torch balladry, but she had a way of infusing everything she did with a great sense of emotion. It's the same kind of emotive, deep soul sweep that was buried so heavily in Curtis Mayfield's recordings – perhaps it's the Chicago factor! Whatever the case, this is wonderful stuff – essential to anyone interested in the best late 60s/early 70s female soul! 28 tracks in all: "Uh! Uh! Boy, That's A No No", "Help Yourself (Lover)", "Whatever It Takes To Please You", "Tit For Tat", "Good N' Plenty", "Can You Get Away", "Let's Get A Groove Going On", "Just Loving You", "The Love I Need", "Come To Me", "Wonderful Night", "Away From The Crowd", "Didn't I Fool You", "You Ole Boo Boo You", "All The Way" and lots more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The first ever retrospective of the late 60s & early 70s work of singer Willie Hobbs – a great mix of uptempo southern soul, slow cooking groovers, tender ballads and more – and Hobbs nails it on all fronts! Most of the singles were cut for Nashville labels– including Silver ... CD
House of Orange/Soulscape (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Forget blues, because Geater Davis is a soul singer through and through – a really incredible southern talent with a deep soul sound that few others can match! Although Davis didn't record nearly as much as his contemporaries, he's got a sound that matches or beats them – a raw, raspy ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy
A treasure trove of deep soul – featuring rare and unissued tracks by some of our favorite artists of the genre! The set goes way way past the usual collections of southern soul – to bring together obscure singles, album tracks, and rare vault material – going past the obvious ... 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
Best Of Friends
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Jazzy soul all the way through – and a great little album from Lenny White and the Twennynine combo – a group that features some especially great keyboards from the great Don Blackman! The style here's a bit like some of Blackman's own work – rooted in fusion, but focused towards ... 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
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
Calla/Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy
Fantastic soul from JJ – a monster 60s soul talent who's rarely given his due! JJ first struck big with the landmark hit "But It's Alright" – the leadoff track on this album, and a blistering little tune that's awash in scratchy guitars, bouncing bass, and one of the ... CD
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Quite possibly our favorite-ever album by the Impressions! The record is a key transitional one – and it has them opening up the politics that were often hidden by spiritual metaphors on earlier ABC albums, into a righteous soul groove that hints a lot at the overblown direction Curtis ... CD
Light Of Worlds
Mercury, 1974. New Copy
It's the mid 70s, and Kool & Co not only keep the funky groove up, but also expand their style into a moogy style that adds a nice dimension of spacey soul to their rich palette of funk. The funkier cuts – like "Street Corner Symphony" and "Rhyme Tyme People" – ... CD
