Staple SingersBe What You Are ... LP
Stax, 1973. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice! The style here is very much in keeping with the hit Staples mode of the time – righteous, full, but still nice and earthy at the bottom ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Staple SingersHammer & Nails (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Riverside/4 Men With Beards, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A classic pre-soul album by The Staples – very different than their later secular work of the 70s, but every bit as excellent! The album was done in a folksy spirit for Riverside at the start of the 60s – and captures the group in very raw, stripped-down format – with just guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Staple SingersSwing Low ... LP
Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Excellent early work from The Staple Singers – one of their first recordings, and an all-gospel album that's drenched in the same sort of soul that you'd hear on their big hits of later years – a key influence on the sound of the secular 60s, heard here in its best original format! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy pressing – with bonus booklet of notes!)

✨✧ Staple SingersTurning Point ... LP
Portrait, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great revival of sorts for The Staple Singers – and a record that has them hitting a whole new groove to really open up their sound! Gone are the cliches of earlier albums, and in their place is a tightly-crafted approach to 80s soul – one that's clearly aimed at the dancefloor, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few bumped corners, light wear, and a promo stamp.)

Staple SingersUncloudy Day ... LP
Vee Jay/Mississippi, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Hard to imagine a cloud in the sky with music this brilliant – early work from The Staple Singers, done in a bluesy blend of gospel and roots – with some pretty soulful undercurrents too! Most numbers are virtually acapella – but have this wonderful guitar from Roebuck staples ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great vinyl pressing – with insert book too.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Staple SingersWill The Circle Be Unbroken ... LP
Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Possibly the closest thing to an early "hit" the Staple Singers ever had – an album that starts off with their classic rendition of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", an instantly timeless tune penned by Roebuck Staples! The group's quite young at this point, and is a quintet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great reissue – with booklet of notes, too.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Staple Singers/Curtis MayfieldLet's Do It Again ... LP
Curtom, 1975. Very Good- ... $6.99
Probably the best record the Staple Singers ever cut during the 70s – as it makes a genius move by taking their rich vocal style and laying it over some excellent tracks written by Curtis Mayfield! The record's quite different than their usual Stax numbers, and has a Curtom groove that's hip ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch, clear tape on the top seam, and some small stains.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Edwin StarrFree To Be Myself ... LP
Granite, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
It's the mid 70s, Edwin's more than 25 miles from Motown – but honestly, this is a pretty great album that doesn't suck nearly as much as you'd think! Part of the strength of the record goes to Dynamic Concept – a hip LA backing group that provide some great musical accompaniment to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, name in marker on the front and a stickre remnant on the back. Label has a name in marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Edwin StarrHell Up In Harlem ... LP
Motown, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent blacksploitation soundtrack – and every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown soundtracks at the time! Larry Mizell and Dennis Coffey help out on the instrumentation – giving the album an extra funky instrumental edge, one that takes it way past Edwin ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: The label and the sleeve list the song "Don't It Feel Good To Be Free", but it's actually not on the reissue.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Step By StepI Always Wanted To Be In The Band ... LP
Brunswick, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Quite possibly the greatest soul band ever to come out of Milwaukee – and a tight little ensemble who've got a really great sound! The overall feel of their work is a bit hard to peg – as the group are equally great at mellow midtempo group numbers as they are at tighter, clubbier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy StewartTommy Stewart ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Funky genius from the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – the one and only album recorded by Tommy Stewart, a huge force in some of the greatest club tracks of the south, including the massive Spirit Of Atlanta album!

Sly StoneHigh On You ... LP
Epic, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
A nice little mid 70s set from Sly – one recorded without the Family Stone, but still grooving wonderfully with lots of funky edges! Sly's expanded his sound nicely here – pushing past the shorter funk of earlier years to work in some complicated instrumentation that keeps things ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Street Corner SymphonyHarmony Grits ... LP
Bang, 1975. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Funky uptempo vocal group soul – in that "doo wop for the clubs" kind of style that a some east coast acts were using at the time. The record was produced by Michael Zager, and it's sometimes got a bit too much focus on the grooves to showcase the harmonies properly – but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barrett Strong/Gino ParksRarer Stamps Vol 1 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Rare work from these two overlooked figures in early soul – both artists who recorded for Motown during the first few years of the label – with a sound that's a lot more raw and hard-edged than their later hits! Barrett Strong was one of the first great voices on the label – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick, 1975. Near Mint- ... $33.99
Part funk, part disco, and all the way soul – served up in this one and only album from Strutt! The group were an obscure New Jersey combo from the 70s, but they step out beautifully on this rare Brunswick album – which has the same sort of funk club groove you'd find on a few of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ StuffStuff ... LP
Just Sunshine/Warner, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Tight funky fusion from Stuff – the stellar debut by the soul jazz supergroup – filled with groovy electric keys, rubbery basslines and tightly vamping guitar! The sound is warm and groovy throughout – sophisticated funk on some tunes, and slightly looser and soulful on others ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Style CouncilMy Ever Changing Moods ... LP
Geffen, 1984. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Say what you want, we love this album! When it came out, we were such big Jam fans that we could never forgive Paul Weller – but now, nearly 20 years later, we're stunned at how great some of the soul songs on the album are. Sure, you've got to throw away about half the tracks – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original lyric sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
StylisticsLet's Put It All Together ... LP
Avco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Mid-period Stylistics, recorded after their association with Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and during the time that the group was handled by Hugo & Luigi. H&L do an ok job with them, and they've got Van McCoy handling arrangements to add a bit more soul to the mix – but the record is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
