Gil Scott-HeronFirst Minute Of A New Day ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Gil Scott Heron's first album for Arista – very much in the mellow soul jazz work of his legendary album on Strata East!

Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
A 70s soul classic – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit! The album's best known for its anthemic classic "Johannesburg" – one of the first popular tunes to really push the cause of a free South Africa – but the whole album's a winner, filled ... read more CD

ShadowLove Lite ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A killer from Shadow – a modern soul trio who are perhaps best remembered for the work they did with Leon Ware, but who sound pretty darn wonderful here on their own!

A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound!

EMI/Edsel (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
