Sublime sounds from Booker T & The MGs – the group's first five albums, laid out in one totally package! The progression in Memphis soul here is wonderful – as the package starts with the initial Green Onions set – a record that grew out of a famous jam from Book and the group in the studio – then moves through Soul Dressing, And Now, Hip Hug Her, and Doin Our Thing – records that get funkier and funkier at each new spin – showing how the group really tightened up their style, and helped transform the sound of instrumental soul in the process! Loads of great Hammond from Booker T, mixed with killer guitar from Steve Cropper – and a motherlode of great cuts that include "Green Onions", "Comin Home Baby", "Can't Be Still", "Home Grown", "Think", "Soul Jam", "Taboo", "One Mint Julep", "Plum Nellie", "Outrage", "Night Owl Walk", "Double Or Nothing", "Sunny", "Pigmy", "Slim Jenkins Place", "Hip Hug Her", "Soul Sanction", "The Beat Goes On", "Blue Or Green", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Never My Love", and "I Can Dig It". All albums in tiny LP sleeves too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tabu (UK), 1990. New Copy
An underappreciated, later record on the Tabu label – and the one-and-only album we've heard by dawn of the 90s soul singer Demetrius Perry! The production is a mix of fairly timeless, smooth grooving slow jams, plus little bit nice pop soul and funk touches, a little bit reminiscent of the ... CD

Tabu, 1979. New Copy
They're not lying with the title of this album from Brainstorm – because this classic late 70s set has the group moving into some very funky territory – stepping up the basslines even more than before, and really finding a great way to focus on the groove! The approach is right on the ... CD

Greatest Slow Jams
Stax/Concord, 1970s. New Copy
We love The Dramatics in all their modes, but we're especially fond of the group when they're working with mellow tracks and ballads – because a slower pace really seems to open up their harmonies, and have them hitting even greater heights than on their groovers! This package is a dream ... CD

Atlantic/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy
A tremendous collection of work from the great Betty Swann – a hell of a soul singer who'd recorded previously for the Money and Capitol Records, but who really hit her height on this string of 70s singles for Atlantic Records! Betty never cut a full album for the label, so this period is a ... CD
