Pretty raw stuff from New Orleans pianist/vocalist James Booker! The 2CD set features live work that was recorded in 1977 at a small club in the Crescent City – a very spare date that has Booker playing and singing with no other accompaniment! The music's a great way to hear James in a really spare, stripped-down setting – one that shows the deep charm he always had when playing live, as you'll hear from his clever patter with the audience – and their clearly rapt response. Some titles are done in more than one version, and titles include "Classified", "Let Them Talk", "Taste Of Honey", "Papa Was A Rascal", "Junko Partner", and "Make A Better World".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tuff City/Funky Delicacies, Early 70s. New Copy

Motown, 1976. New Copy
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very ... CD
