James BrownNonstop ... LP
Polydor, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
James is still funking along at a pretty fast pace – but he has lost some of the "original disco man" feel that marred previous albums. Instead, he's kind of going for a circa-1977 approach, with long drawn-out funk numbers that have James in front, female backing, and lots of hard ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownPlays James Brown Today & Yesterday ... LP
Smash, 1965. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Funky instrumentals – with James on organ, grooving hard in a raw 60s R&B mode! Lots of the tracks are versions of James' big 60s hits – like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "Try Me", and "Out of Sight" – but there are also some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownRevolution Of The Mind ... LP
Polydor, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Subtitled "Live At the Apollo Vol 3", but waaay better than any of the earlier volumes, this monster 2LP live set has James and the JB's wailing away in a freewheeling live set of hard hard hard funky grooves. Excellent work by the band, and a great way to see how sharp they were out of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Southern Routes, Late 50s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 24.99
The "revolution" in the title is certainly well-placed – because right from the start, James Brown was out to forever change the face of music in America!

James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s!

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99
A never-issued James Brown album from 1972 – a killer live performance from The Apollo Theater – and one that features a fair bit of help from other members of his People Records crew!

Oscar Brown Jr.Between Heaven & Hell ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $2.99
Great early work from Oscar Brown Jr – a hip mix of jazz and soul, working in Brown's unique sense of showmanship, and his almost beat-like flair with a lyric! Ralph Burns and Quincy Jones handled the arrangements – and the album's filled with great original tracks by Brown, including ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

The one and only album by this righteous funky combo from Ohio! Although Brute Force were an American group of the late 60s, they've got a sound that brings in traces of the African rhythms that were bubbling under at the time – similar to some of the best London groups of the post-colonial ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
