Donna SummerMistaken Identity (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Driven By The Music (UK), 1991. New Copy ... $13.99
Donna Summer's got blonde hair on the cover this time around, so the album might lead to a case of mistaken identity – but the lady's vocals are still very much on par, and set up here in a whole new set of grooves! The style's nicely contemporary, compared to Summer's previous few records ... read more CD

One of the strangest, most offbeat bits of 80s funk you'll ever here – and a record that's pretty darn groovy as well! Sumy hails from Surinam, and recorded this unique criss-crossing of styles in the early 80s – with a vibe that's very much in keeping with his look on the cover, and a ... read more CD

SunWanna Make Love (aka Live On Dream On) ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the greatest records ever cut by Sun – the late 70s funk group who some excellent albums for Capitol Records – a group whose records never made the charts as strongly as their contemporaries, but not for lack of quality! This set's a great batch of heavy ensemble funk with an ... read more CD

✨✧ Mike & Brenda SuttonDon't Hold Back ... CD
SAM/P-Vine (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great set of duet soul from Mike and Brenda Sutton – done very much in the best Ashford & Simpson mode of a few years before, and following a similar career path themselves – given that the Suttons had also written songs for bigger Motown acts in the 70s! There's a warm glow to ... read more CD

Swamp DoggI'm Not Selling Out I'm Buying In ... CD
Takoma (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
A well-circulated early 80s effort by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams – a set that has him making a joke on commerciality in music with the title, and which still stays pretty true to his roots overall! The album's not out to break any new ground in Dogg's career, but it does maintain ... read more CD

A label-spanning collection that definitely offers up the best of this wonderful soul singer – plus loads of lesser-known gems as well! Bettye Swann may never have truly hit the big time in the late 60s – at least not in comparison to a contemporary like Aretha Franklin – but she ... read more CD

Sweet SalvationSweet Salvation ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Sweet salvation from Sweet Salvation – a righteous little soul group with a hip early 70s crossover vibe! There's a mix of gospel, soul, and funk going down here – almost with a rootsy Swamp Dogg style at times, but a bit more put together too – yet thankfully not nearly as slick ... read more CD

Harmless (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy ... $8.99
Two rare ones from the glory days of the Canadian disco scene – brought together on one CD with bonus tracks too! Tangerue is a weird blend of disco and Latin modes – particularly merengue and tango, but both used very sparingly – almost as minor cultural references that bubble ... read more CD

Capitol/Caroline, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99

TavaresLove Storm (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A definite love storm from Tavares – a set that has the group's vocal approach honed to perfection – really soaring high with some sweet clubby arrangements from Freddie Perren! The album came at a time when the group was riding high on mainstream disco fame – but it's hardly a ... read more CD

TavaresLoveline (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/Caroline (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Tavares really sound great here – way past their 70s hits, but still wonderfully balanced as a harmony soul group! As always, Tavares prove they can groove without ever losing their cool – singing wonderfully amidst some tight-stepping numbers – the best of which hit a warm ... read more CD

✨✧ Johnnie TaylorDisco 9000 ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Not the album Disco 9000 – which was a cool Johnny Taylor soundtrack in the late 70s – but an equally great collection of his massive work for Columbia Records at the time! The package is a perfect introduction to Taylor's magic at the label – that great point when he worked his ... read more CD

RCA/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career.

Johnnie TaylorThis Is Your Night ... CD
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $14.99
A real killer from Johnnie Taylor – recorded on a return to the indie underground after years on bigger labels, but done with all of the care and class that Taylor picked up during his late 70s run on Columbia! As with Taylor's best from that time, there's a newfound love of the mellow cut ... read more CD

TeaseTease (RCA) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time!
