5.00 11

One of the sexiest covers ever from Carla Thomas – and one of her most sultry records, too – a set that really has her growing up, stylistically – and coming across with a new sort of boldness in her vocals! The production is prime 60s Stax, with a slightly classy touch for the lady – and Thomas' vocals are definitely center stage – as she leaves her mark on familiar tunes like "What The World Needs Now", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", and "Yes I'm Ready" – then really takes off on numbers like "Comfort Me", "No Time To Lose", "Move On Drifter", and "Another Night Without My Man".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
Womack Live
Liberty (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
A great early live album from Bobby Womack – one that not only shows off his talents in a setting that's even rawer than his studio records, but which also shows a good deal of his personality as well! The set's got a great small combo feel, and is relatively spontaneous too – with ... CD
United Artists (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... CD
Fly Me To The Moon
Minit/EMI (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A completely sublime first album from the great Bobby Womack – and a set that already has him sounding quite different than any of his contemporaries! Bobby's got a southern soul vibe at the start, to be sure – but he also works things in this amazingly fresh way, too – a bit of ... CD
Heart & Soul
Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy
A tremendous early album from Lorraine Ellison – one that mixes her deep soul roots with some sophisticated jazzy arrangements from Oliver Nelson – a blend that gives the record a wonderfully rich feel, right from the start! The style's somewhere in the territory of Nancy Wilson on ... CD
Funk Factory
Atco (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A massive bit of funky fusion from the 70s – an album that was crucially overlooked at the time, but which has gone onto become a crate-diggers classic over the years! The group's fronted by Polish jazz legends Michal Urbaniak and Urszula Dudziak – but it also features a fair bit of ... CD
Impact
Atco (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Plenty of Impact from this great Philly group – a soaring quartet who harmonize with some great Bobby Eli arrangements – at a level that shines as strongly as the best 70s work by Blue Magic or The Spinners! Impact never broke the big time as strongly, but they're a great group in the ... CD
Stax/Volt, 1971. New Copy
A fantastic album by The Dramatics – with a harder funkier sound than you'll find on most of their other records of the time – a gritty gem from the group's early years, and a record that really deserves its placement on the Stax label! The record has the group moving into a post-Tempta ... CD
Stax, 1972. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.98
Ahhh, good ol' Mel & Tim – possibly our favorite soul duo ever, and a really dynamic pair that carve some great new territory away from the path set by Sam & Dave! The album's a bit of a comeback for the duo, as you'd guess from the title – even though it was only recorded a ... CD
Stax/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Think you know Stax Records? Guess again – as this mindblowing collection offers up a whole new side of Stax we've never heard before. Forget the hits, forget the overplayed oldies – this set's brimming full of deep soul gems from the legendary Memphis label – including a fair ... 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
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
