StylisticsThank You Baby (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
H&L/Victor (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $28.99
Maybe one of the last early "classic" albums from The Stylistics – a record that still preserves the fragile harmonies of their best work at moments, and avoids most of the pitfalls of their late 70s mis-steps! Van McCoy handled arrangements here – and he's mostly in a mode ... read more CD

Donna SummerI'm A Rainbow (expanded 2CD edition) ... CD
Driven By The Music (UK), 1996. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
One of the best Donna Summer albums in years – a set that has her reunited with the production team of Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, who really seem to help her rediscover her strengths! The album's not any sort of easy retro-disco outing, but Moroder and Bellotte really get back to ... read more CD

SumyTryin To Survive (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Galaxy/Rush Hour (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the strangest, most offbeat bits of 80s funk you'll ever here – and a record that's pretty darn groovy as well! Sumy hails from Surinam, and recorded this unique criss-crossing of styles in the early 80s – with a vibe that's very much in keeping with his look on the cover, and a ... read more CD

Swamp DoggI'm Not Selling Out I'm Buying In ... CD
Takoma (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A well-circulated early 80s effort by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams – a set that has him making a joke on commerciality in music with the title, and which still stays pretty true to his roots overall! The album's not out to break any new ground in Dogg's career, but it does maintain ... read more CD

Bettye SwannBest Of Bettye Swann – Money, Capitol, Fame, & Atlantic Recordings 1964 to 1975 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A label-spanning collection that definitely offers up the best of this wonderful soul singer – plus loads of lesser-known gems as well! Bettye Swann may never have truly hit the big time in the late 60s – at least not in comparison to a contemporary like Aretha Franklin – but she ... read more CD

✨✧ Bettye SwannBettye Swann – The Money Recordings ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Tremendous work from a singer who's hardly ever gotten her due – the great Bettye Swann, an artist who mostly recorded in less-than-hit territory in the 60s and 70s – but who turned out some wonderful work that really stands the test of time! The cuts here are all from Bettye's ... read more CD

Sweet SalvationSweet Salvation ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Sweet salvation from Sweet Salvation – a righteous little soul group with a hip early 70s crossover vibe! There's a mix of gospel, soul, and funk going down here – almost with a rootsy Swamp Dogg style at times, but a bit more put together too – yet thankfully not nearly as slick ... read more CD

SylversSomething Special (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/Caroline (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A record that gave The Sylvers their biggest-ever hit – the cool crossover club cut "Hot Line" – and a set that also helped firmly push them out of the indie soul ghetto into the mainstream! These guys were already great long before this set – and forged one of the best ... read more CD

SyreetaOne To One ... CD
Tamia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99

Mirage/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The big breakout record for The System – one of the key soul crossover duos of the 80s!

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... (Jazz, Soul) read more CD

T-ConnectionMagic (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dash/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Plenty of Magic here from T-Connection – a clubby set of tracks, yet one that's still put together more like a funk combo record from the mid 70s! The instrumentation is mindblowing – impeccable guitar and basslines, set to snapping rhythms that really capture the best Miami funk mode ... read more CD

TavaresFuture Bound ... CD
Capitol/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99

Capitol/Caroline (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99

Johnnie TaylorDisco 9000 ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Not the album Disco 9000 – which was a cool Johnny Taylor soundtrack in the late 70s – but an equally great collection of his massive work for Columbia Records at the time! The package is a perfect introduction to Taylor's magic at the label – that great point when he worked his ... read more CD

Lefevre Sound/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99

Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... read more CD
