4.90 11

A classic album of short hard funky grooves – put together by the legendary Oliver Sain, a genius instrumentalist/producer from St. Louis, and the man behind more soul classics than you might imagine! Oliver plays alto, organ, and piano on most cuts – and the backing is spare and hard on nearly all the tracks. Some of Sain's later work got a bit weak, but this one's a classic, and has a great 70s funk sound! Titles include "Bus Stop", "Booty Bumpin", "Libra's Dream", "Sporty Mae", and "Laid Back".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Overlooked 70s genius from The Impressions – 2 killer albums back to back on a single CD! Loving Power is later Curtom work from the group – but still plenty darn nice, with a super-dope vocal harmony approach on the best tracks! The title cut is worth the price of admission alone ... CD

Great stuff from one of our favorite soul vocalists of the 60s! We love Deon Jackson – we love his sweetly honest vocal style, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This album is the only one he ever cut – and it's a ... CD

Willie Hightower
Honest Jons (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Seminal southern soul from the great Willie Hightower – a singer we'd rank right up there with Otis Redding, Al Green, and James Carr! Willie's got an incredible voice that grabs you right away – earthy and honest, yet also extremely well controlled – almost a down home take on ... CD

Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Great early work from Billy Ocean – a smooth album of understated groovers, all done in a style that's nicely retrained, and which places a good focus on Billy's great vocals! Most of the record skips along in a warm mellow groove – never too over the top, and in a way that makes us ... CD

High Rise (with bonus tracks)
Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy
Always-great work from the team of Ashford & Simpson – the kind of a record that has them at the top of their game, even though they'd changed their overall sound over the years! The vibe here is more in an 80s groove mode than some of the duo's Warner albums, but they've still got an ... CD

Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Perhaps the ultimate album for The Gap Band – and sure, it was a hit, but the record still sounds great today, and the constant sampling of some of the record has kept it fresh in the crates for years and years. The band have lost the heavier funk sound of earlier years, and working in a ... CD

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1987. New Copy
A gem of a record from Anita Pointer – a set that really helps give her some sharp focus and direction, thanks to strong production work from Preston Glass! We love Preston's later records on his own – and here, he works a bit like Kashif during that singer's years as a studio force ... CD

A pair of great early albums from Main Ingredient – Tasteful Soul from 1970 and Bitter Sweet from 1971 – in a single set! Tasteful Soul is one of the groups earliest records, with a great set of Bert DeCoteaux arrangements, and a totally sweet soul harmony sound! The arrangements are ... CD

Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than ... CD

RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy
A real mindblower from Chocolate Milk – and a record that really shows the evolution of the sound of New Orleans funk since the 60s! Back in that decade, the groove was being carved out by The Meters with Allen Toussaint – but here, Toussaint's working with his new favorites, Chocolate ... CD

Although Phyllis Nelson is maybe best known to American audiences as a dancefloor artist, she really scored big overseas with this mid 80s album – a set that has Phyllis really reaching out to a much wider range of styles! The record's got a lean, clean style that puts plenty of focus on ... CD
