PersuasionsWe Still Ain't Got No Band ... LP
MCA, 1973. Very Good ... $2.99
They still ain't got no band, and they're still riding along at the height of their acapella success – one that was no doubt due to rising mainstream interest in older musical modes as part of the rock and roll revival of the post-Woodstock years – something that probably helped the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PharaohsAwakening ... LP
Scarab, 1972. Very Good ... $119.99
A legendary album from Chicago – recorded by a group with ties to Sun Ra, Phil Cohran, and Earth Wind & Fire! The set's got a sound that more than lives up to all those references – a vibe that's jazzy and soulful, yet often quite righteous too – imbued with the sort of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and clean. Back cover has an autograph from Big Willie Woods, too.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Esther PhillipsAnd I Love Him (pink cover) ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- ... $6.99
The classic Atlantic LP that turned Esther from a rough-hewn, junkie, juvenile R&B singer into a sensitive interpreter of ballads, standards, and pop tracks. Her version of the Beatles title track is amazing, and she sings it with a fragility and sensitivity that Lennon and McCartney could ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing. Cover has some pen on back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Esther PhillipsBlack-Eyed Blues ... LP
Kudu, 1973. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of Esther's strong winners for Kudu – a record that takes her soulful style of earlier years, and wraps it around some sly 70s funky arrangements! Ex-James Brown hornman Pee Wee Ellis arranged the album, and gave Esther a nice little dose of funk that really helped her groove – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and small peeled spot.)

✨✧ Esther PhillipsBurnin' – Live At Freddie Jett's Pied Piper, LA ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good ... $5.99
A key moment in the career of Esther Phillips – and a record that really has her shaking off the rougher bluesy styles of the earlier years, and pointing the way towards strong jazz success in the 70s! The album's definitely burnin, but with a sophisticated vibe too – as Esther works ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing.)

✨✧ Esther PhillipsEsther Phillips w/Beck (aka What A Difference A Day Makes) ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a tight batch of jazzy soul, with backing by funky fusion players like Steve Khan, David Sanborn, and The Brecker Brothers – plus guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal billing on the original album cover! Titles include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Esther PhillipsFor All We Know ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Smooth and sophisticated grooving from Esther Phillips – a record that really has her shaking off the rag-tag and rootsy modes of earlier years, and gliding sweetly into the mainstream! Phillips' vocals are still as soulful and compelling as ever, but the backings are quite full – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Esther PhillipsFrom A Whisper To A Scream ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
One of our favorite-ever albums from Esther Phillips – an album that really helped her transform her sound for the 70s! The approach here is a lot more jazzy than before – served up with a good dose of funk, thanks to arrangements from Pee Wee Ellis – fresh from his work with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some peeling/stuck-on paper along the bottom seam, with some splitting.)

Wilson PickettBest Of Wilson Pickett (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Friday Music, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $30.99 31.99
Hard heavy soul from The Wicked Pickett – and virtually a blueprint for the heavier sound of Muscle Shoals to come! Rick Hall and Tom Dowd produced the material, and tracks include classics like "Mustang Sally", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Funky Broadway", "Soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson PickettHey Jude ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
Wilson Pickett at Fame Studios – an unbeatable mix that yields up one of his greatest albums ever! All the best elements of Pickett's strength at Atlantic Records are firmly in place here – hard, raw vocals at the front, supported by funky accompaniment from Fame Studios regulars, plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch, some wear, a small split on the bottom seam, and a name in pen on front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Wilson PickettWicked Pickett ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A breakout record that forever put Wilson Pickett at the top of the heap for mainstream 60s soul – thanks to the oft-covered, endlessly played "Mustang Sally" single that leads off the set! And although the groove established by that track helped Pickett establish an audience on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Canadian pressing.)

(Deep groove pressing. Cover has some oxidation under the gloss.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
PlayersHe'll Be Back ... LP
Minit, Late 60s. Good+ ... $14.99
A hip bit of southern soul – very much in keeping with other work on the Minit label during the mid 60s. Although much of the work on Minit was from New Orleans, this set appears to have some Chicago origins – as it features arrangements by Riley Hampton (who'd worked with many artists ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and split top & bottom seams.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Players AssociationWe Got The Groove ... LP
Vanguard, 1980. Very Good- ... $4.99
Less funk and more disco than some of the group's previous albums – but in a great way, one that only seems to improve their sound! The album features 4 long tracks – and they do a great job of blending the group's jazz funk grooves with some spacier disco touches. The whole thing's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp on the back.)

Pointer SistersPointer Sisters ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
Their first album, and the one that's got their big version of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" – which starts with a nice break, too! Other tracks include "Sugar", "Pains & Tears", "Jasa", "River Boulevard", and "Cloudburst". ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Port AuthorityPort Authority ... LP
Navy, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
What a weird group! Port Authority were all members of the US Navy – and the Navy evidently supported them big, because they released this album themselves! The group's got a funky sound that mixes up soul and rock – mostly soul on the instrumentation, with some occasional bad white ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Presidents5-10-15-20-25-30 Years Of Love ... LP
Sussex, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
The early 70s sweet soul masterpiece by The Presidents – a great album that kicks off with a title track of that was a huuuuuuuge hit back in the day, but the full length album by the group just about never shows up! It's just beautiful stuff, with lots of tasty harmony soul tracks with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Billy PrestonEncouraging Words ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of Billy's better albums from the time – produced by George Harrison, with a rough rootsy spiritual sound that reminds us of material on Let It Be. There's more than a bit of rock on the album – and there's a churchy feeling that sounds a lot like the hippie religiosity that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and price sticker remnants.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Billy PrestonEverybody Likes Some Kind Of Music ... LP
A&M, 1973. Very Good ... $0.99
Everybody likes some kind of music – and on this record, Billy Preston delivers up jazz, gospel, blues, and rock – all styles that influence his sound strongly, and which are tied together nicely in one righteous blend! The album's not as schizophrenic as you might expect from the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
