Arista/BMG (Japan), 1981. Used ... $22.99
An early 80s gem from Aretha Franklin – one of the best of her years at Arista Records, thanks to solid help in the studio from the mighty Arif Mardin!

Aretha FranklinSoul Sister/Take It Like You Give It ... CD
Columbia/American Beat, 1966/1967. Used ... $5.99
Aretha Franklin's last 2 Columbia albums – back to back on a single CD! Soul Sister is a later date for Columbia Records that hints a bit at the sounds to come on Atlantic! Backings are by Robert Mersey and Belford Hendricks – both of whom use some relatively full orchestrations and ... read more CD

✨✧ Aretha FranklinYoung, Gifted & Black ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha – the earlier hard-hitting soulster, and the developing vocalist with a rich talent for more sophisticated material.

Carolyn FranklinIf You Want Me (with bonus track) ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99
Excellent work by Carolyn Franklin – a heavy album of female soul with a sound that should have made it huge! Carolyn is the less-famous sister of Aretha Franklin – but she's got a voice that keeps the family proud, and she's a lot hipper than Aretha on this album – with a very ... read more CD

Erma FranklinSoul Sister ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Lost funky work from one of the soulful sisters of Aretha Franklin! Erma's got a hard-hitting style that's right up there with Aretha's best for Atlantic – and on this album, she's working in Chicago with Johnny Pate, Sonny Sanders, and Willie Henderson – for a harder-hitting sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FrantiqueFrantique (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the more unusual albums to come from Philly International in the 70s – a set of Euro disco tracks by a French group, and not the usual homegrown talent who usually recorded for the label! The vibe here is maybe a bit more like some of the Prelude Records material of the time – ... read more CD

FreeezSouthern Freeez (plus Anti Freeez & bonus tracks) ... CD
SFE (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99

Full ForceGet Busy 1 Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1986. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Surprisingly great work from Full Force – a set that seems to only get better with the passage of time, set apart nicely from most of its 80s soul contemporaries with a good deal of homegrown charm! Sure, there's some pretty heavy beats here – and sure, the sound is a few notches ... read more CD

Funk IncChicken Lickin' ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Funk IncHangin' Out ... LP
Prestige, 1972. Very Good+ ... $28.99
No hangin out here – because these guys are tighter than ever, and right on the money from the very first note of the set! A snapping drum break opens up the album – followed by a wickedly stepping bassline, a rolling conga part, and a vamping dance between Hammond and tenor sax – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicFree Your Mind . . . And Your Ass Will Follow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicFunkadelic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicLet's Take It To The Stage (limited gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 23.98
A tasty little album from Funkadelic – one that has Bootsy Collins joining the group, and really hitting the unique approach that would become the definitive P-Funk groove! And although tracks are shorter and even more focused, there's still a fair bit of guitar in the set – keeping ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicMaggot Brain (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

C Kunspyruhzy, 2015. New Copy Gatefold (pic cover)... $15.99 18.98
A sweet set of fresh takes of tracks from George Clinton's First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate album – served up here as a special vinyl-only release!

✨✧ FunkadelicStanding On The Verge Of Getting It On ... LP
Westbound, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(90s UK pressing.)
Also available Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On (180 gram pressing) ... LP 18.99
