RogerBridging The Gap ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $13.99
Roger Troutman's definitely trying to bridge a few different gaps in soul music with this later solo effort – some of his earlier funk, his mid-period electro, and even a bit more mature ballad work – which rounds out the album nicely! Given that Roger initiated so many modes that ... read more CD

Roger (Roger Troutman)Many Facets Of Roger ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones ... read more CD
Also available Many Facets Of Roger (180 gram pressing) ... LP 11.99

Roger (Roger Troutman)Saga Continues ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Crisply popping grooves from Roger – a great solo record from the voice of Zapp! The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth ... read more CD
Also available Saga Continues ... LP 4.99

Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
Plenty of beats here from Roger Troutman – going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s! The style is funky, but touched with lots of elements that have wended their way from ... read more CD

Roger & The Human BodyRoger & The Human Body – Introducing Roger (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Troutman/KTI (Japan), 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
The birth of the Troutman sound – an early example of Ohio funk at its best, recorded years before Roger and company started having such a bit influence on the west coast scene! The groove here is filled with plenty of the bass you'd expect from Troutman – but given that the date of ... read more CD

Rose BrothersEverything's Coming Up Roses ... CD
Muscle Shoals Sound/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Everything's coming up for the Rose Brothers here – sounding better on this second set than on their debut, with a style that really shows the group coming into their own! The quartet have an approach that takes an older 70s group style, and finds a way to make it work within a contemporary ... read more CD

✨✧ Rose RoyceFresh Cut ... CD
Atlantic/Expansion (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked 80s moment from Rose Royce – a set recorded after the group had stepped away from their famous association with Norman Whitfield, but were still very much at the top of the modern soul game! The production here is maybe a bit more 80s than before, but the group continue to keep ... read more CD

✨✧ Rose RoyceIn Full Bloom (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Whitfield/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A big one for Norman Whitfield – who found in Rose Royce what he'd been lacking for years – a hit group ready to handle a number of styles, all well, and all with an adventurous style that would break them past the legions of lackluster funky soul groups of the late 70s. The record ... read more CD

Rose RoyceJump Street ... CD
Whitfield/Wounded Bird, 1981. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
An overlooked later gem by Rose Royce – a funky Norman Whitefield production released shortly after the similarly strong Golden Touch – a mix of funky numbers, more spaced out cosmic keys inflected grooves and a couple of mellow jams! The funkier numbers come earlier in the set, and ... read more CD

Rose RoyceRainbow Connection – Rose Royce IV ... CD
Whitfield/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
An overlooked late 70s set from Rose Royce – not as hitmaking some of their other albums, but actually pretty darn great – thanks to some rock-solid production from Norman Whitfield! The album's a perfect illustration of the way that Whitfield expanded his earlier funky sound with the ... read more CD

Diana RossLast Time I Saw Him ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
Fully mature work from Diana Ross – a set that really breaks free from the styles of her roots, and which has her emerging as a full-formed solo act on her own! There's a range of modes here that's quite surprising – strong, sophisticated ballads at the core, but also echoes of jazz, ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Diana Ross/Michael MasserMahogany ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of Diana's big cinematic moments of the 70s – and a record that's better than we remember! The theme of the film – "Mahogany" – was covered so many times during the 70s that it's easy to forget how great it is – a sad, slow tune with a meandering vocal that's ... read more CD

MCA/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 18.98
An amazing debut from Rufus – a group so great, they were virtually a genre unto themselves during the 70s! Rufus came from the same totally hip Chicago scene that gave the world Minnie Riperton and Earth Wind & Fire – and like both of those greats, these guys have a way of drawing ... read more CD

Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today!

One of the last albums that Rufus and Chaka Khan ever recorded together – and one of the best, as well! The set's a surprisingly great blend of live material and studio cuts – concert material taking up three sides of the 2LP set, and studio tracks on the last side – working ... read more CD
