CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Resonance, 1964/1965. New Copy
A very cool, very limited 10" album release of early material by the great Larry Young – mid 60s sessions from Paris that predate his more famous albums on Blue Note! Young's really starting to stretch out here – still working with a bit of the soul jazz vibe of his Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Art Yard/Strut (UK), 1973. New Copy
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkesta – and a set that's every bit as great as Ra's self-released albums on Saturn Records in the 70s! The performance is a well-recorded date from France in the early 70s – and the Arkestra are at their richest, most expressive – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Aladdin/Jazzman (UK), Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
A killer party after hours – served up here as a replica of a super-rare early 10" album on the Aladdin label!

LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy
A lost southern soul album from the 70s – recorded down at Muscle Shoals by singer Sandra Wright, and originally intended for release on Stax Records – but never issued at the time! Sandra's a great singer – deep soul, but with a touch of class, too – and the approach here ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5 x 7"
A very cool package for collectors of Italian soundtrack material – a set that brings together five rare Eps of classic film music, in a format that was way more common than full LPs at the time! The set features colored vinyl for each individual release, plus a special booklet of notes ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5x7inch
Gritty groovers from the legendary Studio One Records – a special, limited box set that brings together a host of great 45s for the label – all in a sweet little package!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prestige, 1954. New Copy 5 x 10 inch (reissue)
A totally beautiful collection – and a set that may well be even cooler than the first volume in this series! Like that one, this special, limited box features exact replicas of five different Miles Davis 10" albums for Prestige – all presented with their original album artwork, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat Goes On
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy
The beat goes on, and just keeps getting better and better too – thanks to the growing sophistication of the Young/Holt duo, once they broke away from Ramsey Lewis! The bass and drums share equal space in the spotlight – and the production has the former really up high in the mix, ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Loma/Soul Brother (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest female singers on the east coast scene at the end of the 60s – heard here on a classic Warner Brothers set that includes some of her best-remembered tracks! At some level, the set's a prequel to Linda's later recordings for the Stang/All Platinum label – as it ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth & Soul, 2015. New Copy
The sound of funk to come – served up here in a special all-new collection of work from the Truth & Soul label!

LP, Vinyl record album (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
People/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production! The set's got Maceo coming back strongly into the JB fold, with a fierce array of funky cuts that kick it every bit as hard as the best JBs work of the time. No surprise, the JBs are ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Step Lightly
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. New Copy
One of the most obscure records from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – a great session recorded in the 60s, during Blue's classic stretch with Blue Note – but not issued until 1980, and even then, only briefly! The record's a great example of Mitchell's strong capacity to play well in a larger ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy
The landmark first album from Joan Armatrading – a singer who's almost a genre unto herself! The album's awash with Joan's early collaborations with songwriter Pam Nestor – pairing hear with Armatrading at a level that's almost like that of Bernie Taupin and Elton John during the same ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
AMS (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Very strange Morricone score to this even stranger western from the early 70s! Sure, the core of the material is 70s spaghetti scoring, but the instrumentation is incredibly weird – and includes "squishy" electric keyboards, rolling vocal choruses, whistles, clock ticking, and more! ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A stunning collection of rare Chicago soul – pulled from the M-Pac label, which was part of the One-Derful family of records – and packed with vintage singles and 10 previously unreleased tracks too! This series is fantastic – the first really deep look at the Chicago underground ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Now Again, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Acrobat (UK), 1972. New Copy
A lost live date from the great British tenorist Tubby Hayes – recorded right near the end of his too-short life, but a stone cooker all the way through! The material was recorded live at the Hopbine – but it's different than both the other 1972 album from the venue, or earlier Hopbine ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Majesty Music
Arista/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy
One of the great ones from bassist Miroslav Vitous – a musician you might know from more atmospheric moments, but artist who could really be funky when he wanted! The album's got this righteous groove that really matches the energy of Miroslav's Magical Shepherd album from the same time ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EMI/Abkco, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A very cool early 10" album from The Animals – the group's second in this format, and never originally issued in the US!
