Tee Mac featuring Marjorie BarnesNight Illusion ... CD
SKJ/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A sweet bit of funky club from Tee Mac – a set that was recorded in Lagos at the end of the 70s, but which has plenty of American disco touches overall! Tee plays some sweet flute solos in the mix, and the record also features some great lead vocals from Majorie Barnes – who tops off ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more CD

Ralph MacDonaldCounterpoint ... CD
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $22.99
Maybe one of the most soul-based records ever from percussionist Ralph MacDonald – partly because Ralph does a bit of singing, in addition to playing the heavy congas on the cover! Yet the record's still got the core jazz vibe of his other sets from the late 70s – served up with an all- ... read more CD

Maceo & All The King's MenFunky Music Machine ... CD
Southbound (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A rare gem from Maceo Parker – the second album cut with his King's Men group in the short time he was away from James Brown in the early 70s! The set was done for the Excello southern soul label, and it's got a bit of a different groove than his work for House Of Fox with the same group ... read more CD

MachineMachine (with bonus tracks) ... CD
All Platinum/Essential, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A stunning set from Machine – not the late 70s disco group, but a combo who were essentially the backing group for The Whatnauts – stepping out here in their own album of raw New Jersey funk! The set's a stunner right from the start – and features production by George Kerr, who ... read more CD

MadcliffMadcliff ... CD
Guinness/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare funky gem from Madcliff – an early project from Chris Hills, who'd soon go onto greater fame in Players Association! The album's got a much more soul-based sound than Hills' later material – still upbeat and groovy, but delivered with an indie soul vibe that keeps things nice ... read more CD

Magic SamBlack Magic (remastered edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Delmark, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that ... (Blues, Soul) read more CD

Taj MahalEvolution (The Most Recent) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A well-titled set – given that the record really shows an evolution in the style of Taj Mahal! Some cuts are still in an older bluesy mode, but a few others feature some great backings from Leon Pendarvis – who creates this fuller, soaring sort of style that takes off with plenty of ...

Taj MahalMusic Fuh Ya ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweetly soulful set that has Taj Mahal really trying on some new flavors – yet still keeping things strongly in the bluesy territory of his roots! In addition to the lead vocals and lots of acoustic guitar, the set also features key contributions from Rudy Costa on a range of saxes, plus ... (Blues, Soul) read more CD

Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... CD
Columbia, 1968. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
The first album in a mighty legendary run from Taj Mahal – one of the first generation of blues musicians to really learn to recast their sound for the younger crossover generation! By that, we don't mean that Taj is commercial at all – it's just that he's kind of reclaiming the blues ... (Blues, Soul) read more CD

Main IngredientEuphrates River/Afrodisiac ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Two of our favorite albums by The Main Ingredient – back to back on a single CD! Euphrates River is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still ... read more CD

Carlos MalcolmBustin Outta The Ghetto ... CD
AJP/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Funky madness – and one of the greatest funky instrumental albums ever! This one's so rare that only a few funk collectors have it in their collection – but it's a totally massive bit of funk that's way more than just plain "rare" (which can sometimes also mean snoozy for ... read more CD

✨✧ MaloDos ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $14.99
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first! The group are really in top form here – taking off with Santana-inspired riffs that are filled with heavy percussion, soaring organ, ... (Latin, Soul) read more CD

MaloMalo ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful 70s Latin soul from the legendary Bay Area combo that included Jorge Santana, Luis Gasca, and Coke Escovedo – all players who'd go onto great solo fame on their own, working together here as a youthfully inventive group that really set the tone for the west coast sound of the decade! ...

MandreMandre ... CD
Motown/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
A classic set of spacey club from Mandre – aka Andre Lewis – an artist we'd place right up there with some of the best cosmic sounds from Dexter Wansel at the time, and maybe even some of the more space-bound club artists of the European scene as well! The album's got some wonderful ... read more CD

MandrillWe Are One (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Robinsongs (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderfully tight work from Mandrill – a real standout from the years at Arista – and a set that seems to take all the key instrumental energy of the Polydor years, and focus it on a soulful groove that's even more soaring than before! The energy is wonderful – very much like the ... read more CD

Mar-KeysDo The Pop Eye With The Mar-Keys ... CD
Stax (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $8.99
Vintage Memphis instrumentals from The Mar-Keys – a record cut at a time when the group were still rising up with the same power as Booker T & The MGs! There's a very similar vibe going on here – tight rhythms and no-nonsense combo instrumentation that's heavy on organ and tenor, ... read more CD

Arif MardinGlass Onion ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $24.99
A really cool solo album from Arif Mardin – the arranger who turned out so much wonderful work for soul singers in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – a legacy that includes some of the most important recordings for Aretha Franklin and Chaka Khan! Yet here, Arif's out on his own in an instrumental ... read more CD

Orlando MarinOut Of My Mind ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
A Latin Soul classic – but one that's a lot more obscure than some of the better-remembered albums on Fania and Tico from the late 60s! Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he ... (Latin, Soul) read more CD
