Roy Ayers — He's Coming ... LP 9.99

One of the rarest and greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – the sly, funky and spiritual masterpiece He's Coming from 1971 – really the beginning of the funk years from Roy Ayers Ubiquity! This one's a totally solid mix of soulful jazz, jazzy soul and righteous funk – and it's straight up wonderful all the way through – with a groove that's hugely influential to say the least! Includes the amazing track "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", which has a slow sample bassline in the intro that's just incredible – plus groovy cuts like the spiritual funk classic "He's a Superstar", "He's Coming", and "Sweet Tears". The lineup includes Sonny Fortune on soprano sax and flute and Billy Cobham drums and percussion, and the record's co-arranged by Harry Whitaker, who's also on keys and vocals – with other tracks include "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", "Ain't Got Time", "I Don't Know How To Love Him", "Sweet Butterfly Of Love" and "Fire Weaver". Amazing stuff, really a beautiful encapsulation of Roy Ayers in peak form!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1981. New Copy
Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings! The songs are shorter than Fela's, and with more of Roy' ... CD

Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy
Pure magic from the height of Roy Ayers' classic 70s run on Polydor – a record that's filled with warm, jazzy grooves – all served up in that unique style that Roy was forging at the time! The album perfectly balances dancefloor tracks with mellower numbers – stepping out one ... CD

Sly & The Family Stone
AAO, Mid 60s. New Copy
Rare early work from Sly Stone – some really great sockin-soul tunes, recorded in San Francisco during the mid 60! The style here is less funky than some of Sly's more famous work, but the overall groove is nice and lively – with plenty of tunes that have a hard soul or Northern Soul ... 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

Varese, Late 60s. New Copy
Tremendous work from The Equires – a Milwaukee soul quartet from the 60s, but one who worked heavily on the Chicago scene of the time – often at a level that matched the best of their Windy City peers! Like The Artistics or Chi-Lites, these guys have a tremendous sense of harmony ... CD

Polydor, 1973. New Copy
What can we say? This is one of the greatest soul soundtracks ever! In a market that was dominated by the big-selling Shaft and Superfly albums, Roy slipped in this masterful blend of jazzy vibes and wah wah funk that's easily one of the best-composed records of the blacksploitation genre! The ... CD

Love Fantasy
Polydor/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of ... CD

Polydor, 1976. New Copy
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole ... CD

MCA, Mid 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Excellent middle period work by the Dramatics – recorded after their years at Stax, with a slightly smoother groove, and featuring some great tunes that really sparkle! By this point, the group were hitting a Detroit modern mode – with less of the rough edges of the Stax work, which ... CD

Polydor, 1962. New Copy
A landmark album that forever changed the face of live recordings! As has been told and retold often, King records not only had the genius idea of bringing recording equipment into the Apollo Theater to catch James in a smoking live setting – but they also went out of their way to record and ... CD

King/Universal, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Not just a "best of" from James Brown's legendary recordings at the Apollo Theater – but a set that also unearths two rare tracks from the never-issued album Get Down At The Apollo With The JBs! The core of the set presents the best moments from Live At The Apollo Volumes 1, 2, and ... CD

Polydor (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, ... CD
