Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Pure crossover genius from Buddy Miles – a great mix of funky soul and rockish touches – and the kind of record that easily put Buddy in the same camp as Sly Stone or The Isley Brothers with mainstream audiences of the time! Tracks here are a bit longer and more jamming than work by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Con Funk Shun
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Early work from Con Funk Shun – different than their later, better known hits! The group sure knew how to slap that bass, even back on this first album for Mercury – but then again, they – along with other big Mercury groups like The Ohio Players – were pioneering the bass-h ...

Angel
Mercury, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
By this point the Players had moved into a smooth, polished territory that never betrayed their roots in a funkier sound, yet hitting a more gliding groove overall. Includes "Angel", "Merry-Go-Round", "Don't Fight My Love", "Body Vibes" and "O-H-I-O&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coming Back For More
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
A really wonderful post-Stax album from the great William Bell – a set that has the singer still stepping out with all those great deep soul modes from the 60s, but also finding a hipper, more laidback approach as well! There's a beautiful mellow vibe to the record – one that recalls ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wing/Mercury, 1956. Very Good-
Rough and raw classics from Louis Jordan – served up with a bit more of an R&B tinge than some of his work from the late 40s! There's a searing quality here that really hits hard on the instrumentation – guitar parts and saxophone riffs that clearly mark the space that Jordan ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's Better To Travel
Mercury, 1987. Very Good
A surprisingly great guilty pleasure from the 80s – the first album from Swing Out Sister, recorded when all the excitement of the UK post punk scene had just about faded, and most of the groups had left their exciting early roots behind. Enter these guys, picking up the last shreds of jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Want To Be With You
Mercury, 1967. Very Good
Wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's lesser-known sister – a hell of a great singer, and one who packs even more punch than her famous sibling! The gem of a set has all the poise and class of Dionne, but comes across with a lot more soul as well – a great mix that's very much in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

LA Boppers
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+
Sublime work from this jazzy harmony combo – a really unique group who took older vocal modes and fused them onto tight modern soul grooves! This set may well be the best-ever from the group – a perfectly produced album done with Augie Johnson of At Home Productions – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bad Girls
Mercury, 1979. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A super huge hit for Donna Summer – a disco classic as well as a pop crossover smash! The album was produced by disco powerhouse Giorgio Moroder, and featured the hits "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls", and "Dim All The Lights". Plus the songs "On My Honor", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Very Special
Elektra, 1981. Very Good+
An excellent bit of modern soul by Debra Laws – really her only album, but an instant classic nonetheless! The set's an impeccable batch of smooth tracks – recorded with production by brothers Ronnie and Hubert – and Debra's vocals have a sophisticated jazzy touch that sets the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of The Boogie
De-Lite, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older ... LP, Vinyl record album
