Lou RawlsCarryin' On! ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
One of Lou's excellent Capitol sessions produced by David Axelrod!

Howard Roberts ChoraleLet My People Go – Black Spirituals African Drums ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Although vocal arranger Howard Roberts (not the guitarist) made some nice funky records in his time, this is a fairly traditional batch of spirituals, augmented by African production, and packaged in a style that's designed to appeal to the white liberal – even though the conception of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
A long-overdue full length set of work from Roy Roberts – a musician who's maybe best known for his more recent blues material on the Virginia scene, but who's presented here in a hip array of early funk and soul singles! The groove is nice and deep – and Roy's definitely coming from a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddy RobinsonAt The Drive-In ... LP
Enterprise, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent album of super-dope guitar riffing – laid down over funky arrangements by Monk Higgins, in kind of a slick LA early 70s style. The group features work by Paul Humphrey, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder – but the real star is Freddy, whose complicated lines on the guitar stand ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddy RobinsonComing Atlantis (aka Black Fox) ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A sweet album of funky guitar tracks, with Freddy Robinson out front over a bunch of tight LA Monk Higgins arrangements. Kind of a sleeper that hasn't really gotten as many props in the groove scene as it ought to, with a great sunny west coast 60s soul jazz vibe running throughout. Joe Sample ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey RobinsonBeing With You ... LP
Tamla, 1981. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A great vehicle for the Smokey Robinson sound in the 80s – and a record that helped Smokey kick off the decade with a really massive hit! "Being With You" still let Smokey stay in an older style of soul-based vocals, without slipping into the adult contemporary sound that would ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey RobinsonWhere There's Smoke ... LP
Motown, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Smooth Smokey at the end of the 70s – an album that has him moving from the Quiet Storm sound into the more hook-based style that would earn him a fair bit of hits in the 80s! The Robinson vocal approach is always sweet, warm, and mellow on the set – especially on the album's more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesPocket Full Of Miracles ... LP
Tamla, 1969. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great one by The Miracles! Smokey and the group are clearly pushing the envelope here – stretching out for a deeper harmony sound, moving towards some of the smoother styles they'd use a bit more in the 70s. The result is a slightly-confused album, but one with some really interesting ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Strange little 4 track release in which Sire records was trying to break a lot of the early 80s electro disco groups from Italy into the US market. The album's notable, though, for it's inclusion of the great "Problems D'Amour" by Alexander Robotnick, a nice groover that has some strong ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1981. Very Good ... $5.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Rogers returns to his roots, and cuts an album that's more in a straight gospel mode than his earlier gospel-influenced soul sets!

Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A later effort from DJ Rogers, with his rich voice still sounding great. Self produced by Rogers, this album is a bit slicker than his early 70s classics, but still has that righteous vibe of an artist treading the fine line between secular and spiritual music, but never losing sight of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, 1983. Very Good- ... $9.99
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ...

A funky club track from the Carolina scene of the early 80s – but one that almost feels more New York overall – right down to the sound of a siren that introduces the whole thing! The tune builds nicely from warm basslines and keyboards – electro soul, but maybe a bit deeper ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rose RoyceIn Full Bloom ... LP
Whitfield, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

On the one hand, our jazz snob side wonders why Diana Ross would be picked to star as Billie Holiday, but on the other, it makes perfect sense, as this soundtrack to the film was made during the early 70s, when she was at the top of her career, and one of the highest profile female soul singers. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
