Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99

Johnny Otis Show/Snatch & PoontangsCold Shot/For Adults Only ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Man, we don't know if Johnny and show were growing their own weed in the back of the tour bus or what – but these late 60s efforts for the band are nice and messed up! The tipoff's probably a young Shuggie, looking very stoned on the cover of the album Cold Shot (the first one on this set), ... read more CD

PagesFuture Street ... CD
Epic/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
Richard Page and his Pages group come on with a bit more force here on this second sweet set from the 70s – but they're still working strongly in the soulful blend of AOR rock and fusion they delivered on their debut! Pages have a vibe that's a bit like Loggins & Messina or Boz Scaggs at ... (Rock, Soul) read more CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

PagesPages ... CD
Epic/Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A 70s classic from Pages – a group that's headed up by singer Richard Page, but which also features some key studio players of the time! There's a mix of soulful elements amidst more mainstream modes – a vibe that's definitely AOR, but hipper too – of that really special blend ... (Rock, Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Ray Parker Jr & RaydioWoman Needs Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/BMG (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
The start of Ray Parker's big hit run of the 80s – a set that has the Raydio group stripped down to just a duo behind Ray, and Parker very firmly out in the lead on vocals! The title hit's a smooth standard that's kept on going for many years – just the kind of cut that crossed Ray ... read more CD

Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A great run of recordings from Winfield Parker – a hell of a soul singer who should have been huge – at least given the quality of these stunning mid 60s recordings! Parker's a monster right from the start – and begins the set recording a few tracks as "Little Winfield ... read more CD

Crown Vetch/Favorite (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Proof that underground sounds didn't have to be outsider music back in the 70s – because the Parker Brothers work here with a tightness and studio groove that's right up there with the AOR giants on the major labels at the time! The record's a beautifully homegrown affair, but also comes ... (Rock, Soul) read more CD

ParliamentClones Of Dr Funkenstein ... CD
Casablanca, 1976. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at ... read more CD

ParliamentFunked Up – The Very Best Of Parliament ... CD
Mercury, 1970s. New Copy ... $3.99 10.98
The 70s catalog of funk legends Parliament is so big, and so strong, that it's hard to make a claim to be the "very best" of that massive selection of tunes – but honestly, this 16 track set does a pretty great job, and includes most of the tracks that first come to our minds as the ... read more CD

ParliamentOsmium (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time – and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too! The record ... read more CD
